mal'-o-thi, ma-lo'-thi (mallothi, "my discourse"):

Son of Heman, a Kohathite singer (1 Chronicles 6:33; 25:4). The song service in the house of the Lord was apportioned by David and the captains of the host to the 3 families of Asaph, Heman, and Jeduthun (1 Chronicles 25:1). Their place in the "courses" was, however, settled by "lot" (1 Chronicles 25:8,9). Mallothi was one of Heman's 17 children--14 sons and 3 daughters (1 Chronicles 25:5)--and was chief of the 19th course of twelve singers into which the temple choir was divided (1 Chronicles 25:26).
