(Heb. Heyman', הֵימָן, i. q. מְהֵימִן, ChlaId. faithful; Sept. Αἰμάν or Αἱμάν, v.r. Ἀμάν, Ἀνάν, Αἰμουάμ , etc.), the name of two men.
1. A person named with three others celebrated for their wisdom, to which that of Solomon is compared (1 Kings 4:31), probably the same as the son of Zerah and grandson of Judah (1 Chronicles 2:6). B.C. post 1856; (See ETHAN).
2. Son of Jobl, and grandson of Samuel, a Kohathite of the tribe of Levi, and one of the leaders of the Temple music as organized by David (1 Chronicles 6:33; 15:17; 16:41,42). B.C. 1014. This, probably, is the Heman to whom the 88th Psalm is ascribed. He had fourteen sons and three daughters (1 Chronicles 25:5), some of whom are enumerated in 1 Chronicles 25:4. Asaph, Heman, and Jeduthun are termed "seers" in 2 Chronicles 29:14; 2 Chronicles 29:30; 2 Chronicles 35:15, which refers rather to their genius as sacred musicians than to their possessing the spirit of prophecy (1 Chronicles 15:19; 1 Chronicles 25:1; 2 Chronicles 5, 12), although there is not wanting evidence of their occasional inspiration. (See ASAPH).
