Nehemiah 12:36

Context
12:36 and his colleagues – Shemaiah, Azarel, Milalai, Gilalai, Maai, Nethanel, Judah, and Hanani – with musical instruments of 1  David the man of God. (Ezra the scribe led them.) 2 

Nehemiah 12:46

Context
12:46 For long ago, in the days of David and Asaph, there had been directors 3  for the singers and for the songs of praise and thanks to God.

1 tn Or “prescribed by” (NIV, NLT); TEV “of the kind played by.” The precise relationship of these musical instruments to David is not clear.

2 tn Heb “was before them.”

3 tn Heb “heads.” The translation reads with the Qere the plural רֹאשֵׁי (roshey, “heads”) rather than the Kethib singular רֹאשׁ (rosh, “head”) of the MT.
