Who should prophesy with harps. In Hebrew, verb To prophesy is reflexive form, implying utterance under spiritual influence. The Ancients regarded musical utterance as effect and proof of direct inspiration, and we still speak of higher results of genius as inspired, however we may choose to explain terms away as mere figure of speech. The power of moving sounds, whether of voice or instrument, is not to be gained by mere study or training; it is commonly spoken of as a gift, and its products are called inspirations.

Of sons of Asaph; Zaccur. Literally, the sons of Asaph belong to Zaccur.

Literally, who prophesy at hands of the king: that is, either according to royal arrangements, under Davids own appointment, or under royal direction. Of Jeduthun: sons of Jeduthun. Rather, To Jeduthun: sons of Jeduthun Were Gedaliah, & c. Zeri. Izri of 1 Chronicles 25: 11 is probably right. The error here is as old as ancient versions. Six.

Does the name Asaph mean anything to you? Anyone. Anyone. Bueller? Although it might not mean anything to us, name Asaph was as familar as Bach or Beethoven in ancient Israel. In Nehemiah 7, we get specific examples of singers and muscians who lead Israel worship during a critical point in their history. It would be the family of Asaph who return from exhile to lead people in song. Nehemiah 7: 44 ESV singers: sons of Asaph, 148. Although Asaph was known for his exceptional talent on bronze cymbals, he was much more than just a musician. In 2 Chronicles 29, he is described as a seer. Asaphs purpose and calling was to glorify LORD to people through music. 2 Chronicles 29: 30 ESV and Hezekiah King and officials command Levites to sing praises to LORD with words of David and of Asaph seer. And They sang praises with gladness, and they bow down and worship. All in all, Asaph and his descendants would produce at least twelve psalms. It is no coincidence that during this time of strong musical leadership there was a revival of spiritual condition. Under Solomon, Hezekiah, and even throughout the second temple, which was constructed by Zerubbabel and Ezra, Asaph and his family leave a powerful legacy of praise and worship. It plays a vital role for peoples spiritual condition.
Pulpit Commentary Verse 12.-Translate, To these Divisions Of Porters, as regards Chief men, belong charge together with their brethren to officiate in the House Of LORD. According to the present chapter, then, divisions add up to ninety-three. And if at any time in history it were case that these ninety-three were leaders of groups among a total of four thousand porters, it would put exactly forty-two under each of these ninety-three, leaving but one over. This number ninety-three, meantime, does not agree with two hundred and twelve of 1 Chronicles 9: 22. And three score and two of Obed-Edom in ver. 8 Of present chapter do not agree with three score and eight of Obed-Edom in 1 Chronicles 16: 38. At the same time, no little light may be thrown on this subject by noticing that porters ' number in Zerubbabel's time one hundred and thirty-nine; and that the number one hundred and seventy-two is given to them by Nehemiah. The conclusion may well be that numbers vary in David's time and other times severally; and that date in question was not the same as date of David in our present chapter, but was a subsequent date nearer to the time of Captivity. There is, therefore, no special ground for doubting the accuracy of numbers given in this chapter. 1 Chronicles 26: 12 Commentaries Jump To Previous Authority Charges Chief Corresponding Courses Divisions Doorkeepers Door-Keepers Duties Gatekeepers House Minister Ministering Offices Performing Porters Positions Relatives Responsible Servants Wards Jump To Next Authority Charges Chief Corresponding Courses Divisions Doorkeepers Door-Keepers Duties Gatekeepers House Minister Ministering Offices Performing Porters Positions Relatives Responsible Servants Wards Links 1 Chronicles 26: 12 NIV 1 Chronicles 26: 12 NLT 1 Chronicles 26: 12 ESV 1 Chronicles 26: 12 NASB 1 Chronicles 26: 12 KJV 1 Chronicles 26: 12 Bible Apps 1 Chronicles 26: 12 Biblia Paralela 1 Chronicles 26: 12 Chinese Bible 1 Chronicles 26: 12 French Bible 1 Chronicles 26: 12 German Bible Alphabetical: as Chief Divisions Duties For Gatekeepers give had House in just like LORD men Minister Ministering Of Relatives temple their these through To were OT History: 1 Chronicles 26: 12 Of these were Divisions christian Bible Study Resources, Dictionary, Concordance and Search Tools
The number of these officers is noticeable, twelve being the normal number in Israelite institutions. And Over King's Treasures.-That is, those of the palace on Zion. And Over Storehouses.-The Hebrew has the same word Treasures. Treasures in Fields, or Country, in Cities, Villages and Castles, or Towers, include all that belong to David outside the walls of Jerusalem. Jehonathan was comptroller-general of revenues from these sources. Pulpit Commentary Verses 25-31.-These Verses have for their primary object, not to give an exhaustive summary of the wealth of David and resources thereof, but to give names of those persons who were charge with care, or management and care, of' it. Classification, however, is interesting, and may be naturally expected to be tolerably complete. We do not find any distinction made between such property as might have belonged to David as private property, and such as belong to him as King-probably because there was none worth making. Verse 25.-For Storehouses, read, as in former clause, Treasures. My suggestion of the second half of this verse in comparison with the first is that Azmaveth's Charge was Over Treasures in Jerusalem. For Castles, see 2 Chronicles 17: 12; 2 Chronicles 27: 4. Word, though same in both clauses, may probably be enough to cover precious treasure, like gold, silver, costly raiment, etc., More particularly in the first clause, and grain, fruit, etc., In latter, for word has distinctly double application. 1 Chronicles 27: 25 Commentaries Jump to Previous Adiel ad'i-El Azmaveth az'maveth Castles Charge Cities Control Controller Country Districts Fields Jehonathan Jonathan King's Little Outlying Places Property Royal Storehouses Store-Houses Towers Towns Treasures Treasuries Uzziah uzzi'ah Villages Jump to Next Adiel ad'i-El Azmaveth az'maveth Castles Charge Cities Control Controller Country Districts Fields Jehonathan Jonathan King's Little Outlying Places Property Royal Storehouses Store-Houses Towers Towns Treasures Treasuries Uzziah uzzi'ah Villages Links 1 Chronicles 27: 25 NIV 1 Chronicles 27: 25 NLT 1 Chronicles 27: 25 ESV 1 Chronicles 27: 25 NASB 1 Chronicles 27: 25 KJV 1 Chronicles 27: 25 Bible Apps 1 Chronicles 27: 25 Biblia Paralela 1 Chronicles 27: 25 Chinese Bible 1 Chronicles 27: 25 French Bible 1 Chronicles 27: 25 German Bible Alphabetical: Adiel and Azmaveth Charge Cities Country Districts had in Jonathan King's Now of Outlying Royal son Storehouses Towers Towns Uzziah Villages was watchtowers OT History: 1 Chronicles 27: 25 Over King's Treasures was Azmaveth christian Bible Study Resources, Dictionary, Concordance and Search Tools
