Jewish Singers on Schedule

Handwritten page from the book of Nehemiah chapter 11 verses 9 through 29.
Nehemiah 11:9-29

As a part of his record, Nehemiah identified the people who moved to Jerusalem. Additionally, he wrote down each person’s role and responsibility.  

Singers on a Schedule 

Professional singers and song leaders were an integrated part of the Israelites system of praise. At least from the time of King David, Jewish Temple worship required professional song leaders. It seems that praise and worship were baked into the ancient rites. 

Sing Your Praise to the Lord 

As a matter of traditional understanding, we are all made to praise God through some overt act, like singing.  

And it doesn’t matter if my song is sad or happy. Make it honest and direct it to God. And in this way, I tune my heart to remain in harmony with the Creator – the King of the Universe.  

“Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. Sing to the LORD, bless his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.” Psa 96:1-2
