Ezekiel 26:13 And I will cause the noise of thy songs to cease; and the sound of thy harps shall be no more heard.
Because God revealed that He would do this and inscripturated it, we can be certain that we are to consider what this statement reveals to us.
How does God want us to profit from this statement about what He would do to the sound of the harps of Tyre?
Here are some possibilities to consider:
God decreed that He would bring an end to the sound of their harps because . . .
1. The people of Tyre were ungodly people.
2. The people who were playing the harps were ungodly people.
3. The setting, purpose, motivation, etc. of the people who were playing the harps was ungodly.
4. The actual sounds of the music that was being produced by the harps were themselves ungodly.
What exegetical and theological principles do we use to determine whether God wants us to understand that one or more or all of these were true about His bringing the sound of the harps of Tyre to an end?
