    King James Bible - 1 Samuel 16:16

    Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well.

    World English Bible

    Let our lord now command your servants who are before you, to seek out a man who is a skillful player on the harp. It shall happen, when the evil spirit from God is on you, that he shall play with his
    hand, and you shall be well."

    Douay-Rheims - 1 Samuel 16:16

    Let our lord give orders, and thy servants who are before thee will seek out a man skilful in playing on the harp, that when the evil spirit from the Lord is upon thee, he may play with his
    hand, and thou mayest bear it more easily.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Let our lord now command thy servants, who are before thee, to seek a man who is a skillful player on a harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he will play with his
    hand, and thou wilt be well.

    :21,22 Ge 41:46 1Ki 10:8

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:16

    Diga, pues, nuestro señor a tus siervos que están delante de ti, que busquen alguno que sepa tocar el arpa; para que cuando fuere sobre ti el espíritu malo de parte de Dios, él taña con su mano, y tengas alivio.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. Let our
    Lord now command thy servants which are before thee , etc.] Meaning either themselves, or some of a more inferior rank, who were in some post and office at court, waiters there, such as yeomen of the guards: to seek out a man who is a cunning player on the harp : a musical instrument much in use in those days: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee ; when in a melancholy mood, and Satan takes the advantage of it to distress and terrify, to spread the gloom, and stir up evil passions, and promote distraction and confusion: that he shall play with his hand : upon the harp, that being not an instrument of wind, but of hand music: and thou shalt be well : music being a means of cheering the spirits, and removing melancholy and gloomy apprehensions of things, and so of restoring to better health of body and disposition of mind; and that music has such an effect on the bodies and minds of men is certain from observation and experience in all ages. Music has been found to be medicine to various diseases, not only for the curing of the bite of vipers, and of the tarantula, but for easing the pains of the sciatica, and for helping persons labouring under the disorders of the frenzy f328 ; and Pythagoras used to compose the mind, and remove the perturbations of it, by the use of the harp f329 , the thing here advised to.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-23 -
    Saul is made a terror to himself. The Spirit of the Lord departed from him. If God and his grace do not rule us, sin and Satan will have possession of us. The devil, by the Divine permission, troubled an terrified Saul, by the corrupt humours of his body, and passions of his mind. He grew fretful, peevish, and discontented, and at times madman. It is a pity that music, which may be serviceable to the goo temper of the mind, should ever be abused, to support vanity an luxury, and made an occasion of drawing the heart from God and seriou things. That is driving away the good Spirit, not the evil spirit Music, diversions, company, or business, have for a time often bee employed to quiet the wounded conscience; but nothing can effect a rea cure but the blood of Christ, applied in faith, and the sanctifyin Spirit sealing the pardon, by his holy comforts. All other plans to dispel religious melancholy are sure to add to distress, either in thi world or the next __________________________________________________________________
