  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Jeduthun 
  lauder;  praising,  a  Levite  of  the  family  of  Merari,  and  one  of 
  the  three  masters  of  music  appointed  by  David  (1  Chr.  16:41,  42; 
  25:1-6).  He  is  called  in  2  Chr.  35:15  "the  king's  seer."  His 
  descendants  are  mentioned  as  singers  and  players  on  instruments 
  (Neh.  11:17).  He  was  probably  the  same  as  Ethan  (1  Chr.  15:17, 
  19).  In  the  superscriptions  to  Ps  39,  62,  and  77,  the  words 
  "upon  Jeduthun"  probably  denote  a  musical  instrument;  or  they 
  may  denote  the  style  or  tune  invented  or  introduced  by  Jeduthun, 
  or  that  the  psalm  was  to  be  sung  by  his  choir.
