Strongs Concordance:


Easton's Bible Dictionary

Lauder; praising, a Levite of the family of Merari, and one of the three masters of music appointed by David (1 Chronicles 16:41, 42; 25:1-6). He is called in 2 Chronicles 35:15 "the king's seer." His descendants are mentioned as singers and players on instruments (Nehemiah 11:17). He was probably the same as Ethan (1 Chronicles 15:17, 19). In the superscriptions to Psalms 39, 62, and 77, the words "upon Jeduthun" probably denote a musical instrument; or they may denote the style or tune invented or introduced by Jeduthun, or that the psalm was to be sung by his choir.

(1 Chronicles 15:17,19) with 1 Chronicles 16:41,42; 25:1,3,6; 2 Chronicles 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, 62d and 77th Psalms, indicating probably that they were to be sung by his choir. (B.C. 1014.)
