Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Chronicles 25:1 Verse 1. David and the captains of the host] The chiefs of those who formed the several orders: not military captains.
Should prophesy] Should accompany their musical instruments with prayer and singing.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1.

Matthew Henry Commentary The singers and musicians.
