Music Soothes the Soul

How Music Soothes the Soul

In the Old Testament of the Bible, in 1 Samuel Chapter 16, King Saul's troubled mind prompted him to ask his servants who among them could play some music to soothe his tired, weary mind.  Saul's servants told him that an evil spirit was troubling him, and that they knew of a valiant soldier who was skilled in playing the lyre. They offered to bring him to Saul so that when the evil spirit bothered him again, this musician, the son a Bethlemite named Jesse, could play for him.  This talented musician was known to be favored by the Lord, and his name was David.
