  1. Once again the worship of the Lord through music and singing is emphasized here by having the family heads and their sons mentioned along with the functions they fulfilled. It is interesting that prophesy is mentioned here and one can only assume that God gave some sort of revelation to those who held the positions mentioned here for both the forth telling and foretelling of the word. And yet this was under the supervision of the king. David was very involved in the worship of God and the orchestration of it. Is that because he to was creative and gifted in such ways or was it due to the fact that he was a little removed from those gifted by the Lord for singing and music and prophesy to provide a bit of an objective perspective on those who might get carried away by their giftedness?

      David was both – Then one of the servants answered and said, “Look, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, who is skillful in playing, a mighty man of valor, a man of war, prudent in speech, and a handsome person; and the Lord is with him.”
