25:1 Moreover David and the captains of the host separated to the service of the sons of Asaph, and of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who should prophesy with harps, with psalteries, and with cymbals: and the number of the workmen according to their service was: 25:2 Of the sons of Asaph; Zaccur, and Joseph, and Nethaniah, and Asarelah, the sons of Asaph under the hands of Asaph, which prophesied according to the order of the king.
25:3 Of Jeduthun: the sons of Jeduthun; Gedaliah, and Zeri, and Jeshaiah, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six, under the hands of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with a harp, to give thanks and to praise the LORD.

Overview:
The singers and musicians.
- David Put those in order who were appointed to be singers and
musicians in the Temple. To prophesy, in this place, means
praising God with great earnestness and devout affections, under
the influences of the Holy Spirit. In raising these affections,
Poetry and Music were employed. If the Spirit of God do not Put
Life and fervour into our devotions, they will, however ordered,
be a lifeless, worthless form.
