Singers I Chronicles 25

I Chronicles 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:"

v7 "So the number of them, with their brethren that were instructed in the songs of the LORD, even all that were cunning, was two hundred fourscore and eight." (288)

The balance of the chapter list those assigned to the singing and music of the house of the LORD.

I can see a lesson in this chapter, that younger people need guidance in the service of the LORD. Some are talented in one thing, some another. Here the fathers were responsible for teaching their sons.

Psalm 98:1 "O sing unto the LORD a new song, for he hath done marvellous things; his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory."
