Family Of Musicians (1 Chronicles 25:4-6)

The Jackson family. The Marsalis family. The Strauss family.

In nearly every genre of music, there are families that have many of their children become renowned musicians. The Jackson family is well-known for pop music. The Marsalis family are treasures to modern jazz music. The Strauss family created a dynasty of classical musicians in Vienna during the 19th century. Undoubtedly, there are many other families who may not be as well-known but have achieved local fame for their musical prowess.

The Bible lists a very interesting family of musicians. 

From the sons of Heman, there were Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shubael, Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, Romamti-ezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, and Mahazioth. All these were the sons of Heman, the king’s seer, for God had honored him with fourteen sons and three daughters. All these men were under the direction of their fathers as they made music at the house of the LORD. Their responsibilities included the playing of cymbals, harps, and lyres at the house of God. Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman reported directly to the king. 

1 Chronicles 25:4-6 (NLT)

Cymbals, harps, and lyres. With fourteen sons, this must have been quite an orchestra, all led by their patriarch, Heman. There are many ways to honor and worship God and music is definitely a beautiful way to use the gifts that God has bestowed upon us.

The Heman family may not be a familiar name in music history. Thanks be to God that He recognized their legacy of faithful service so that we may be inspired to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Love and trust in the Lord; seek His will in your life.
