3002 Verses in Scripture Pertaining to Music!

March 20, 2012

As part of a work project, I have been studying intensely what the Bible teaches about music. Using the graphical search engine in BibleWorks 7, I did a search of Scripture for key terms pertaining to music: sang, sing*, song*, music*, melod*, instrument*; cymbal*, cornet*, trumpet*, flute*, sackbut*, psalm*, psalter*, organ*, pipe*, timbrel*, tabret*, and dulcimer*.

From this search as well as my doing other searches of Scripture for passages pertaining to music, I discovered that Scripture provides us with the text of 163 songs comprising 2821 verses. My search engine search list provided 181 other verses about music that are not part of the text of any of these songs.

Putting these two lists of verses together, I now have compiled 3002 verses in Scripture pertaining to music! This vast number shows that music certainly is an extremely important topic in Scripture.
