The light is just coming up. I've spent the early morning reading through the Bible. I just finished Ezra and am headed into Nehemiah and starting Romans. Both I & II Chronicles and Ezra brought something to light that I never made a correlation with before: when the people of God are faithful, there is music.
Go ahead, read those long portions of both I & II Kings and I & II Chronicles and look where you find music: in times of trusting God in battle, in faithful worship, in rebuilding the temple.
But the opposite is also the case: where there is sin and rebellion, there is no music
