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

A Psimple Psaltery

Creator: Eric Meier | 2009-01-01

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.

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. By changing the layout and shape to a basic triangle, and eliminating some of the more intricate steps--along with giving in-depth and thorough directions--building a bowed psaltery is available for just about everyone.Everything you need to know in order to build a bowed psaltery can be found in this book. All that is needed are basic wood-working tools, a few small specialty items available online, and a persistent passion for making music.

Creator: Madeline MacNeil | Music - 1999-03-05

This collection of music conveys Madeline's love of hymns.

Selections include: A Mighty Fortress Is Our God; All Beautiful the March of Days; Amazing Grace; Be Thou My Vision; Come, Thou Font of Every Blessing; Evening Hymns; For the Beauty of the Earth; He Leadeth Me; Here I Am, Lord; How Great Thou Art; and many more. Written in standard notation only with complete lyrics and suggested chord changes.

This review is from: It's Easy to Play the Bowed Psaltery (DVD) I learned a lot from this video, including how to tune my paltry with an electronic tuner. Each section is subtitled, so you can return to exactly what you need easily. The musicians play tunes at slow speeds for beginners. After you practice with their included booklet, you can play duets with them at home. It was well worth the price.

    A Psimple Psaltery is an excellent reference on the bowed Psaltery

    0 5/5 Haverdude "haverdude" (Missouri) - See all my reviews This review is from: A Psimple Psaltery: Building a Bowed Psaltery, From Start to Finish (Paperback) Being a cello player I found the bowed psaltery a very fascinating instrument. It's simplicity to play and it's pure, haunting sound made me want to find out more about this instrument. I have built a dulcimer so I thought that I might be able to build a psaltery as well. I did a search on the Internet and found a lot of information. However, I have not found a better resource for building a bowed psaltery than this book "A Psimple Psaltery: Building a Bowed Psaltery, from Start to Finish". This book is very easy to understand. The author writes very clearly so that even the most novice builder can be walked through step by step to complete a psaltery. Also, I have e-mailed the author with a couple of questions. Not only did I get a reply but I received very detailed answers. I would recommend this book to anyone that has any interest in the bowed psaltery. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 31, 2009

    Great Instructions

    0 5/5 H82Diet (Gettysburg, PA) - See all my reviews This review is from: A Psimple Psaltery: Building a Bowed Psaltery, From Start to Finish (Paperback) I am not a woodworker but I was determined to make one of these for my daughter as the finished ones we saw at a Heritage Festival were $175.I thought the instructions were crystal clear and very easy for me to follow. I had to borrow the use of some of the power tools but I was able to make the entire thing on my own and it came out GREAT! I also put one of those fancy laser cut medallions in the sound hole which finished it off nicely.

    Good as a starter instrument

    I ordered this Bowed Psaltery online late Tuesday night. When I got home from work today (Friday) it was waiting for me!Looking around I saw anything from 9-note to 30+ note beautifully crafted instruments. But I didn't know what I want. So I decided to buy an inexpensive one to get started and to help me decide what I want.I ordered this one with the dished out sound board rather than a soundbox. My thought was that a cheaply made sound box would not hold the string tension whereas this should for the same price.I understand that this will not sound the same as a well made instrument with a soundbox.Since I will be using this to help decide if I want a small 9-note, 2-octave, 2 1/2 octave, a saprano or a tenor. This instrument sounds good but it is very high pitched. It does not have the same mellow haunting sound as the more expensively-made box-soundboard ones. But is reasonable as a starter instrument.When I took it out of the box and... 4/5 Mia Jasper [Spanielhill Publishing] - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great Beginner Instrument!

    I was recently introduced to the bowed psaltery and it was like love at first sight. But I have a tendency of overcoming infatuations pretty quickly, so though I desperately wanted to drop $300 into a nice Master Works psaltery, I refrained and bought this instead as a test run. I expected a cheap toy that would be at tolerable enough to learn on and little else. But I was pleasantly surprised.This is definitely a beginners instrument. 20 strings does limit play (I believe 30 strings is more the standard), though I was pleased at how much I was able to play on it. It also has the notes printed under the strings, which was perfect for a beginner. I initially hated the bow, but it grew on me a bit (still isn't that great, but it works). I've never played a bowed instrument before, so I had to google what the included rosin was for. You are supposed to rough up the surface (like with a knife or screw) and then rub it on the bow strings to give them better traction, which... 5/5 RavenRing (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

BOWED PSALTERY-MUG

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 ..
