11God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God?

Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. 2Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. 3Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. 4Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. 5Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. 6Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. 2My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? 3My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God? 4When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. 5Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. 6O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar. 7Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. 8Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life. 9I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? 10As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God? 11Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God. Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. 2He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved. 3How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence. 4They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah. 5My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. 6He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. 7In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. 8Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. 9Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity. 10Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them. 11God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God. 12Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.http://rusakislim.skyblog.com

About this book
What's not to like about the bowed psaltery? They have the most wonderful ringing sound of nearly any musical instrument heard, with a haunting sustain that makes the music seemingly float in midair and tingle in your ears. They are easy to play, (featuring a range of two octaves, and no fingering positions to learn), and in their most basic form are fairly simple to build.As with any instrument, the bowed psaltery can be as simple or extravagant as you want to make it. In this book, a plan is pre-sented for a simple psaltery.

    A smaller psaltry bow!

    I have a walnut and maple handmade Psaltry ordered from a well-known couple who have made old-fashioned instruments for years at the Tamarack Artisans Hall in West Virginia. So, I am used to the longer, handmade walnut bows with real horsehair strings!The Roosebeck bow was smaller and has white polyester strings that were not all tightened to the same tension that I was used to using. I suppose you can use scissors to cut-off loose strings??I tried-out the Roosebeck bow, but went back to the comfortable feeling of my handmade, longer bow.I returned the Roosebeck Bow to Amazon and had no problems getting a refund.The Roosebeck bow would be more suitable for beginnig psaltry players. Once you get used to an old-style walnut-bow's size and tone, it may be harder to switch over to factory produced bows. Other customers may enjoy this smaller bow. The price is of Roosebeck Bow is much lower of course than that of a handcrafted wooden and horsehair bow, so some... 3/5 Sue - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

BOWED PSALTERY-MUG

template, frame, denim, blue, grass, blue-t-shirt,
BOWED PSALTERY-MUG------------MAKES A UNIQUE GIFT- Description The conventional bowed psaltery is triangular in shape, allowing each string to extend a little farther than the one before it, so that each can be individually bowed. Chromatic bowed psalteries have the sharps and flats on one side and the diatonic notes on the opposite. It is a psaltery in the traditional sense of a wooden soundbox with unstopped strings over the soundboard. It significantly differs from the Mediæval plucked psaltery only in that its strings are arranged to permit bowing. The soundboard has a soundhole or rose in the center. It is normally played with a small bow, often made in the earlier semicircular style, rather than a modern concave violin bow. Method of playing Performance styles vary, but the instrument may be played either one note at a time, with the instrument held with one hand and bowed with the other, as in instruments of the violin family, or it may be laid down and played with a bow in each hand, in a style reminiscent of the closely related hammered dulcimer. Some players will also hold two bows in one hand to facilitate double-stopping. Besides bowing, the instrument may also be strummed or struck for additional tone colors. The strings are often too closely spaced for conventional finger picking, but may be plucked at the bowing end. READ NEHEMIAH 12:27 ..
