music poetry

A (shepherd) boy who became a (shepherd) king..His melody/his poem:


    • A melody of David.

      23 Jehovah is my Shepherd.

      I will lack nothing.

       2 In grassy pastures he makes me lie down;

      He leads me to well-watered resting-places.

       3 He refreshes me.

      He leads me in the paths* of righteousness for the sake of his name.

       4 Though I walk in the valley of deep shadow,

      I fear no harm,

      For you are with me;

      Your rod and your staff reassure me.

       5 You prepare a table for me before my enemies.

      You refresh* my head with oil;

      My cup is well-filled.

       6 Surely goodness and loyal love will pursue me all the days of my life,

      And I will dwell in the house of Jehovah for all my days.


{Commentary on King David & His Music…segments from King David and Music w09}

David was remarkable in that he was both a musician and a poet. Over half of the psalms are attributed to him. While a boy, he was a shepherd, and his sensitive and perceptive mind was nourished with the pastoral scenes of Bethlehem. He had known the simple joys of listening to babbling brooks and the bleating of lambs responding to his voice. Touched by the beauty of this “music” in the world around him, he took up his harp and raised his voice in praise to God. What a moving experience it must have been to hear the music that David composed to Psalm 23!

As a young man, David played the harp so beautifully that he was recommended to Saul, the king, who took him into his service. When Saul was seized with anguish and mental agitation, David came to him and produced on his harp the melodious and restful refrains that calmed the heart of the king. The dark thoughts that haunted Saul vanished, and his agitation left him.—1 Samuel 16:16.

Do sensitive & perceptive minds need shepherding/nourishing…(music/poetry)? (sure do:)
