What was the job of Asaph in David’s worship team?


That day David first appointed Asaph and his associates to give praise to the Lord in this manner: 1 Chronicles 16:7
            Asaph was an associate of Heman who worked as a musician in David’s worship band.

            Asaph’s job was to bring praise to God (like a worship leader) and play an instrument but also he wrote praise songs.  In the book of Psalms, Asaph is credited with Psalms 73 through 83.  Heman also is credited with one Psalm, 88.

            David felt this position of musical director, instrument player and song writer was important enough to appoint a team to lead this and always direct the hearts of the people toward God.  Imagine today, a President creating a cabinet position of Worship Leader.
