mal´ṓ - thı̄ , ma - lō´thı̄ ( מלּותי , mallōthı̄ , "my discourse"): Son of Heman, a Kohathite singer ( 1 Chronicles 6:33; 1 Chronicles 25:4 ). The song service in the house of the Lord was apportioned by David and the captains of the host to the 3 families of Asaph, Heman, and Jeduthun (1 Chronicles 25:1 ). Their place in the "courses" was, however, settled by "lot" (1 Chronicles 25:8 , 1 Chronicles 25:9 ). Mallothi was one of Heman's 17 children - 14 sons and 3 daughters (1 Chronicles 25:5 ) - and was chief of the 19th course of twelve singers into which the temple choir was divided (1 Chronicles 25:26 ).
