Guitar Chords - Bible
References Music was
mentioned many times in the bible, the following definition of
music is taken from Easton Bible Dictionary.
Jubal was the
inventor of musical instruments (Gen. 4:21). The Hebrews
were much given to the cultivation of music. Their whole
history and literature afford abundant evidence of this.
After the Deluge, the first mention of music is in the
account of Laban's interview with Jacob (Gen. 31:27). After
their triumphal passage of the Red Sea, Moses and the
children of Israel sang their song of deliverance (Ex. 15)
The period of
Samuel, David, and Solomon was the golden age of Hebrew
music, as it was of Hebrew poetry. Music was now for the
first time systematically cultivated. It was an essential
part of training in the schools of the prophets (1 Sam.
10:5; 19:19-24; 2 Kings 3:15; 1 Chr. 25:6). There now arose
also a class of professional singers (2 Sam. 19:35; Eccl.
2:8). The temple, however, was the great school of music. In
the conducting of its services large bands of trained
singers and players on instruments were constantly employed
(2 Sam. 6:5; 1 Chr. 15; 16; 23;5; 25:1-6)
