That portion of the Kohathites that descended from Korah.
  • They were an important branch of the singers of the Kohathite division (2 Chronicles 20:19 ). There are eleven psalms Psalm 84; 85; 87; 88 ) dedicated to the sons of Korah.

  • Some of the sons of Korah also were "porters" of the temple (1 Chronicles 9:17-19 ); one of them was over "things that were made in the pans" (31), i.e., the baking in pans for the meat-offering (Leviticus 2:5 ).
