Twelve psalms altogether have been attributed by late redactors (or by ancient tradition?) to those Levitical Asaphites known from Chronicles (cf. 1 Chr 15:17, 19; 16:4–5, 37; 25:1–2). A plain SUPERSCRIPTION "song" (mizmôr) of (or according to) "Asaph" can be found with → Psalms 50; 73; 79; 82. Various additions may modify this basic title (cf. with Psalms 75; 76; 77; 80; 83). Another designation within the Asaph collection (Psalms 50; 73–83) is maśkîl l?ɔāsāp ("instruction "?" of/according to Asaph," Psalms 74; 78). The redactors wanted to highlight sacred music and possibly sacred teaching as the main tasks of the renowned family of temple officials in the fifth and fourth centuries B.C.E.
