Obed-Edom

Additional Links

son of Jeduthun, a Levite, 1 Chronicles 16:38 , and the father of Shemaiah and others, 1 Chronicles 16:5 . We learn that the Lord blessed this man exceedingly, on account of the ark resting under his roof, 2 Samuel 6:10-11 . David having removed the ark to the place he had previously prepared for its reception, Obed-Edom and his sons were appointed to be keepers of the doors of the temple, 1 Chronicles 15:18; 1 Chronicles 15:21 . Obed-Edom is called the Gittite, probably because he was of Gathrimmon, a city of the Levites beyond Jordan, Joshua 21:24-25 .
