Jeduthun


Jed’uthun (praising), a Levite of the family of Merari, is probably the same as Ethan. Comp. 1 Chron. 15:17, 19 with 1 Chron. 16:41, 42; 25:1, 3, 6; 2 Chron. 35:15. His office was generally to preside over the music of the temple service. Jeduthun’s name stands at the head of the 39th, 62nd, and 77th Psalms, indicating probably that they were to be sung by his choir. (b.c. 1014.)
