“Now the Spirit of the Lord left Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord terrified him. Saul’s servants then said to him, ‘Behold now, an evil spirit from God is terrifying you. May our lord now command your servants who are before you. Have them search for a man who is a skillful musician on the harp; and it shall come about whenever the evil spirit from God is upon you, that he shall play the harp with his hand, and you will become well.’ So Saul said to his servants, ‘Now select for me a man who can play well, and bring him to me.’ Then one of the young men responded and said, ‘Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite who is a skillful musician, a valiant mighty man, a warrior, skillful in speech, and a handsome man; and the Lord is with him.’ So Saul sent messengers to Jesse to say, “Send me your son David, who is with the flock (1 Samuel 16:14-19 NASB).”

God favored David in many ways. Word travels; people heard about his talent as a harpist.

Remember Harpo Marx? The entertainer was first self taught and became a master at his craft.

Have you heard? Many Hospice patients now listen to the peaceful music of harps.

“Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre;
Sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings (Psalm 33:2 NASB).”
