Mahol

Additional Links

MAHOL. The father of Ethan the Ezrahite, Heman, Chalcol, and Darda ( 1 Kings 4:31 ), who are mentioned as famous for their wisdom, though surpassed in this respect by Solomon. Apparently, then, Mahol is a proper name, but it is also found in Psalms 149:3; Psalms 150:4 (EV [Note: English Version.] tr. [Note: translate or translation.] ‘dance’) amongst instruments of music, so that the four wise men mentioned above may really be described as ‘sons of music,’ in which case their wisdom may have consisted chiefly in their skill in the composition of hymns.

T. A. Moxon.
