The Korahites in the Bible were that portion of the Kohathites that descended from Korah.

They were an important branch of the singers of the Kohathite division (2 Chronicles 20:19). There are eleven psalms (Psalms 42; 44; 45; 46; 47; 48; 49; 84; 85; 87; 88) composed by the sons of Korah.

Some of the sons of Korah also were "porters" of the temple (1 Chronicles 9:17-19); one of them was over "things that were made in the pans" (v31), i.e., the baking in pans for the meat-offering (Leviticus 2:5).
