"And Saul's servants said unto
him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee. Let our lord now
command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a
cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil
spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou
shalt be well."
"And David and all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on
harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals."
"After that thou shalt come to the hill of God, where is the garrison of the Philistines: and it shall come to pass, when thou art come thither to the city, that thou shalt meet a company of prophets coming down from the high place with a psaltery, and a tabret, and a pipe, and a
harp, before them; and they shall prophesy: And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.
