Jeduthun = "praising"

1) a Levite of the family of Merari and the chief of one of the 3
choirs of the temple whose descendants also formed one of the
perpetual temple choirs; he is named at the beginning of 3 Psalms
(Ps 39:1; 62:1; 77:1) either as the composer or the recipient
of those Psalms but most likely as the leader of the choir by which
those Psalms were to be sung

3038 Yduwthuwn yed-oo-thoon'

or Yduthuwn {yed-oo-thoon'}; or Ydiythuwn {yed-ee-thoon'};
probably from 3034; laudatory; Jeduthun, an
see HEBREW for 03034

Jeduthun [EBD]

lauder; praising, a Levite of the family of Merari, and one of the three masters of music appointed by David (1 Chr. 16:41, 42; 25:1-6). He is called in 2 Chr. 35:15 "the king's seer." His descendants are mentioned as singers and players on instruments (Neh. 11:17). He was probably the same as Ethan (1 Chr. 15:17, 19). In the superscriptions to Ps. 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.

Jeduthun [NAVE]

A musician of the temple, 1 Chr. 16:41; 25:1.
Called Ethan, 1 Chr. 6:44; 15:17.
See titles of Psalms 39; 62; 77.


(praising), a Levite of the family of Merari, is probably the same as Ethan. Comp. (1 Chronicles 15:17,19) with 1Chr 16:41,42; 25:1,3,6; 2Chr 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.)
