SCRIPTURE: A collection of passages speaking of music and harmony.
New Living Version
2 Play joyous melodies of praise upon the lyre and on the harp. 3 Compose new songs of praise to [the Creator], accompanied skillfully on the harp; sing joyfully.
19 Talk with each other much about the Lord, quoting psalms and hymns and singing sacred songs, making music in your hearts to [God].
Note: Nearly one third of the 150 Psalms in the bible are songs of lament.
1 How wonderful and pleasant it is when [a group can] live together in harmony!
2 For harmony is as precious as the anointing oil that was poured over Aaron’s head, that ran down his beard and onto the border of his robe.
3 Harmony is as refreshing as the dew from Mount Hermon that falls on the mountains of Zion, the place where ADONAI has pronounced the blessing of everlasting life.
