Asaph (Hebrew: אסף‎) is the name of three men from the Old Testament or Hebrew Bible. The articles related to the son of Berachiah and descendant of Kohath refer to the same person.

Together with Heman, the grandson of the Israelite prophet Samuel (1 Chronicles 6:24, or 1 Chronicles 6:39 in non-Hebrew translations), he and his male descendants were set aside by King David to worship God in song and music (1 Chronicles 15:16-17). He authored Psalms 50, and Psalms 73 to 83.
