Praise and worship are synonymous with the Psalms of King David. David is celebrated for writing most psalms through which he sought after and glorified God. He is often thought of as a shepherd king and a warrior poet. Scripture calls him “the sweet psalmist of Israel” (2 Samuel 23:1). Music is important in scripture as we see people using music when celebrating, mourning, worshiping, and prophesying. In addition, different sounds and voices were compared to musical instruments. The shofar is perhaps the most well-known horn mentioned in the Bible. It is made from a ram’s horn and most closely associated with Rosh Hashanah, one of the “appointed feasts of the LORD” given to Israel (Leviticus 23:23-25). Translators identify it as a “horn,” a “ram’s horn,” or a “trumpet” primarily used in battle, as a warning of the coming battle, in celebration, and as a call or warning. Psalms are an inspiring array of prayers for devotional reciting, scripture meditation, private prayer, or public reading like music in our ears. There is no complete celebration without the beautiful sound of the trumpet. The trumpet is so loud and clear, smooth and easy that it is hard not to be taken aback by it. It makes us feel more gladdened and bold when we are praising God.
