1 Crónicas 25:1-31

Os cantores

1David e os comandantes do exército nomearam homens para profetizarem, acompanhados de harpas, alaúdes e címbalos, do grupo. Era dos grupos de Asafe, Hemã e Jedutun. Esta é a lista dos seus nomes e do seu trabalho:

2sob a liderança do profeta Asafe, sob as ordens diretas do rei, estavam os seus filhos:

Zacur, José, Netanias e Asarela;

3sob Jedutun, que conduzia os atos de louvor e agradecimento ao Senhor, acompanhados por cítaras, estavam os seus seis filhos:

Gedalias, Zeri, Jesaías, Simei, Hasabias e Matitias;

Buquias, Matanias, Uziel, Sebuel, Jerimote, Hananias, Hanani, Eliata, Gidalti, Romanti-Ezer, Josbecasa, Maloti, Hotir e Maaziote. 5Deus tinha-lhe dado catorze filhos e três filhas. O seu serviço consistia em tocar címbalos, harpas e liras.
