Bible Names A-G: Asaph


Asaph in Easton's Bible Dictionary convener, or collector. (1.) A Levite; one of the leaders of David's choir (1 Chr. 6:39). Psalms 50 and 73-83 inclusive are attributed to him. He is mentioned along with David as skilled in music, and a "seer" (2 Chr. 29:30). The "sons of Asaph," mentioned in 1 Chr. 25:1, 2 Chr. 20:14, and Ezra 2:41, were his descendants, or more probably a class of poets or singers who recognized him as their master. (2.) The "recorder" in the time of Hezekiah (2 Kings 18:18, 37). (3.) The "keeper of the king's forest," to whom Nehemiah requested from Artaxerxes a "letter" that he might give him timber for the temple at Jerusalem (Neh. 2:8).

Asaph in Fausset's Bible Dictionary ("assembler".) 1. A Levite, son of Berachiah; one of David's choir leaders (1 Chronicles 6:39). An inspired seer, as well as a composer of music (2 Chronicles 29:30; Nehemiah 12:46). "The sons of Asaph" were poets and musical composers of the school founded by him; as Heman and Jeduthun also were heads of schools of sacred inspired music. 1 Chronicles 25:1; 2 Chronicles 20:14; Ezra 2:41; Psalm 50; 73; 83, are all attributed to his authorship; but 83, celebrates the victory of Jehoshaphat long after Asaph's time, therefore "Asaph" in this psalm's title must mean "one of the school of Asaph." 2. 2 Kings 18:18; 2 Kings 18:37. 3. Nehemiah 2:8. 4. Nehemiah 11:17.

Asaph in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE a'-saf ('acaph): Is the name of three men in the Old Testament, of whom one is the reputed author of Psalms 50 and 73 through 83. He was one of David's three chief musicians, the other two being Heman, and Ethan or Jeduthun, and we first hear of him when the ark was taken to Jerusalem (1 Ch 15:16- 19). He conducted with cymbals the music performed in the tent where the ark was housed (1 Ch 16:4,5,7,37), while his two coadjutors discharged the same office at Gibeon (1 Ch 16:41,42). In 1 Ch 25:1 ff we are told that four of his sons were appointed to conduct under him detachments of the great chorus, the families of Heman and Jeduthun also furnishing leaders, and all took part at the dedication of the temple (2 Ch 5:12). A., H., and J. were called the king's seers (1 Ch 25; 2 Ch 35:15), no doubt an official title of rank or dignity. The "Sons of Asaph" are mentioned in later times. They formed a guild, and played a prominent part at each revival of the national religion. See MUSIC; PSALMS. James Millar

Asaph in Wikipedia also refers to four men from the Old Testament: Asaph, the father of Joah (2 Kings 18:18, 37) Asaph, son of Berachiah the Gershonite (2 Chronicles 20:14) Asaph, a Levite descendant of Kohath (1 Chr. 26:1) Asaph, the keeper of the king's forest under the Persian king Artaxerxes I Longimanus (Nehemiah 2:8) (The Asaph mentioned in the Old Teastament is the same man, known by different titles. Just as one can see that Melchisedec is an order of priests as opposed to one man or Herod being a title for a king, Asaph is the opposite--he was known by different titles because he had different responsibilities. He wrote Psalm 77 and has been identified as David's chief musician also.)

Asaph Scripture - Ezra 3:10 And when the builders laid the foundation of the temple of the LORD, they set the priests in their apparel with trumpets, and the Levites the sons of Asaph with cymbals, to praise the LORD, after the ordinance of David king of Israel.

And the king granted me, according to the good hand of my God upon me.
