1 Moreover David and the captains of the host separated unto the ministry the sons of Asaph and of Heman and of Jeduthun, who should prophesy with harps, with psalteries, and with cymbals; and the number of men that were suitable for the work of their respective ministry was,
2 of the sons of Asaph: Zaccur, Joseph, Nethaniah, and Asarelah, the sons of Asaph under the direction of Asaph, who prophesied at the hand of the king.
3 Of Jeduthun: the sons of Jeduthun: Gedaliah, Zeri, Jeshaiah, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six, under the hand of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with a harp, to give thanks and to praise the LORD.
4 Of Heman: the sons of Heman: Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shebuel, Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, and Romamtiezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, and Mahazioth.
5 All these were the sons of Heman, the king’s seer, in the words of God, to lift up the horn. And God gave to Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.
6 All these were under the direction of their father for song in the house of the LORD, with cymbals, psalteries, and harps, for the ministry of the house of God, under the hand of the king, of Asaph, of Jeduthun, and of Heman.
7 So the number of them, with their brethren that were instructed in the songs of the LORD, even all that had understanding, was two hundred eighty-eight.
8 And they cast lots, ward against ward, the small as well as the great, the one with understanding as well as the disciple.
9 Now the first lot came forth for Asaph to Joseph; the second to Gedaliah, who with his brethren and sons were twelve;
10 the third to Zaccur, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
11 the fourth to Izri, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
12 the fifth to Nethaniah, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
13 the sixth to Bukkiah, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
14 the seventh to Jesharelah, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
15 the eighth to Jeshaiah, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
16 the ninth to Mattaniah, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
17 the tenth to Shimei, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
18 the eleventh to Azareel, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
19 the twelfth to Hashabiah, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
20 the thirteenth to Shubael, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;

24 the seventeenth to Joshbekashah, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;

27 the twentieth to Eliathah, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
28 the twenty-first to Hothir, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
29 the twenty-second to Giddalti, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
30 the twenty-third to Mahazioth, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve;
31 the twenty-fourth to Romamtiezer, he, his sons, and his brethren were twelve.
