Jeduthun @ lauder; praising, a Levite of the family of Merari, and one of the three masters of music appointed by David ( 1Chronicles:16:41-421Chronicles:25:1-6). He is called in 2Chronicals: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 ( 1Chronicles: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.
