1 Chronicles 6:31-38 traces the genealogy of Levite singers backwards from those appointed by David to Jacob. There are some interesting names along the way. Heman the singer’s grandpappy was Samuel son of Elkanah, whom you may remember from 1 Samuel. Further back, Samuel’s great, great….grandpappy was Korah, whom we last saw disappearing into what can literally be described as the “maw” of the earth (Numbers 16). Korah’s line didn’t stay dead. He was raised in Samuel, and then raised to the temple, a singer in the house of the Lord.
