and y ObedE'dom with his sixty-eight brethren, including ObedE'dom the son of Jeduthun, and Hosah, to be gatekeepers;
and Zadok the priest and his brethren the priests, z before the tabernacle of the LORD a at the high place that was at Gibeon,
to offer burnt offerings to the LORD on the altar of burnt offering regularly b morning and evening, and to do according to all that is written in the Law of the LORD which He commanded Israel;
and with them Heman and Jeduthun and the rest who were chosen, who were designated by name, to give thanks to the LORD, c because His mercy endures forever;
and with them Heman and Jeduthun, to sound aloud with trumpets and cymbals and the musical instruments of God. Now the sons of Jeduthun were gatekeepers.
d Then all the people departed, every man to his house; and David returned to bless his house.
