Dictionary Mode: easton:Harp
Harp @ (Heb. kinnor), the national instrument of the Hebrews. It was invented by Jubal Genesis:4:21). Some think the word _kinnor_ denotes the whole class of stringed instruments. It was used as an accompaniment to songs of cheerfulness as well as of praise to God Genesis:31:27; 1Samuel:16:23; 2Chronicals:20:28; Psalms:33:2 Psalms:137:2). In Solomon's time harps were made of almug-trees (kjvKings:10:11-12). In 1Chronicles:15:21 mention is made of "harps on the Sheminith;" Revised Version, "harps set to the Sheminith;" better perhaps "harps of eight strings." The soothing effect of the music of the harp is referred to 1Samuel:16:16 1Samuel:16:23 1Samuel:18:10 1Samuel:19:9 . The church in heaven is represented as celebrating the triumphs of the Redeemer "harping with their harps" Revelation:14:2).
