Eitan ha-Ezraḥi

Eitan (אֵיתָן‎, lit: "firm, strong and optimistic, solid and enduring, permanent") the Ezraḥite, is a figure mentioned in the Hebrew Bible: a boy in the court of King David well known for his wisdom and the author of Psalms 89. Aside from this psalm, the name Ethan appears in 1 Kings 5:11, 1 Chronicles 2:6-2:8, 1 Chronicles 6:27-6:29, and 1 Chronicles. 15:17-15:19. He is also identified as a Levite, a "son of Kishi" or "Kishaiah," of the Merarite branch of Levites, and also, with Heman and Asaph, placed by King David over the service of song (1 Chronicles 6:29; 1 Chronicles 15:17-19), and an ancestor of Asaph of the Gershonite branch of the Levites (1 Chronicles 6:27).
