Psallo

Musical Instruments in the Bible always say "we will not listen to God's Word" (Ezekiel 33), making the lambs dumb before the slaughter and almost always with ritualistic BURNING of animals or infants, and as the protypical pattern of God casting the "speakers or craftsmen, singers and instrument players ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

Those unable to read BLACK text on BROWN paper says Paul in 2 Corinthians 3 have not TURNED to Christ which is defined as Baptism which requests A holy spirit or "washed with water INTO the Word" or School of Christ Who has supplied all that we need for Life and Godliness.

The Messianic Judaism has a strong influence "among the scholars" insisting that The Law of Moses or the Lawless worship of the Civil-Military-Clergy preparing the people to return to Babylon BECAUSE of Instrumental Idolatry.

Matt.Dabbs.Denies.Law.Nailed.to.the.html Whose lack of knowledge of the Story Line may prove Falling From Grace for adopting anything of the Law of Moses or the Lawless Laws of the Monarchy.

The fatal flaw is studying Theology from Theologians whose writing prove that they cannot define words or quote Scripture or Historic Scholars.

The Greek word PSALLO and other PSAO-like words were used by those who translated the Hebrew or other texts into GREEK.  The word PSALLO translates ZAMAR type word which means to Prune YOUR vines or take your inheritance. Everyone who seeks authority for deliberately sowing discord and diverting the church house of others depend on the PSALLO word.  This is the foundation upon which they believe they can escape God's Wrath for sowing discord. Furthermore, recorded history notes that people "set their lies to melodies to steal from the simple mind." In fact, they are tapping into the modern "string theory" which says that all of what we call matter is made of resonant "strings."

Paul warned that people who corrupt the Word or sell learning at retail are defined by the word "prostitute."  They may believe their own lies but the text says that they are ancient spirits unleashed by Abaddon or Apollyon who is the Musical Worship Leader.

Lack of understanding is clear from the text which can be read by people with "A" holy spirit or "A" good conscience.
Ephesians 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
Jesus said My Words are SPIRIT and they are LIFE. The only Resource is the Will of the Lord.
Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom

Ephesians 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
Col 3:16 teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
Col 3:16 singing with grace IN your hearts to the Lord.
Romans 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
        that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope
Romans 15:6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Purpose is to Teach, Comfort and Glorify God with "that which is written for our learning."  If simple reading cannot eleminate the external Instrumental Noises, perhaps word definitions can help:

Strabo Geography [-10.3.10] And on this account Plato, and even before his time
        the
Pythagoreians, called philosophy music 

andthey say that the universe is constituted in accordance with harmony,
assuming that every form of music is the work of the gods.
And in this sense, also, the
Muses are goddesses,
and
Apollo is leader of the Muses,
and
poetry as a whole is laudatory of the gods.

And by the same course of reasoning they also attribute to music the upbuilding of morals, believing that everything which tends to correct the mind is close to the gods.

Now most of the Greeks assigned to Dionysus, Apollo, Hecate, the Muses (9 women team), and above all to Demeter, everything of an orgiastic or Bacchic or choral nature, as well as the mystic element in initiations; and they give the name "Iacchus" not only to Dionysus but also to the leader-in-chief of the mysteries, who is the genius of Demeter.
Rev. 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

Apollo is considered to have dominion over plague, light, healing, colonists, medicine, archery, poetry, prophecy, dance, reason, intellectualism, Shamans, and as the patron defender of herds and flocks. Apollo had a famous oracle in Crete and other notable ones in Clarus and Branchidae.

Apollo is known as the leader of the Muses ("musagetes") and director of their choir. His attributes include: swans, wolves, dolphins, bows and arrows, a laurel crown, the cithara (or lyre) and plectrum. The sacrificial tripod is another attribute, representative of his prophetic powers.

The swan and grasshopper symbolize music and song; the hawk, raven, crow and snake have reference to his functions as the god of prophecy.The chief festivals held in honour of Apollo were the Carneia, Daphnephoria, Delia, Hyacinthia, Pyanepsia, Pythia and Thargelia.

Thalrgelia in Greek religion, one of the chief festivals of Apollo at Athens, celebrated on the sixth and seventh days of Thargelion (May-June). Basically a vegetation ritual upon which an expiatory rite was grafted, the festival was named after the first fruits, or the first bread from the new wheat.

On the first day of the festival, one or two men (or a man and a woman), representing the deity but also acting as scapegoats for community guilt, were first led through the city and then driven out. Occasionally, as in times of heavy calamity, they were sacrificed, being either thrown into the sea or burned on a funeral pyre. On the second day of the festival, there were a thanks offering, a procession, and the official registration of adopted persons.

-Apollo  Apollo exercises an elevating and inspiring influence on the mind as god of music, which, though not belonging to him alone any more than atonement and prophecy, was yet pre-eminently his province.

In Homer he is represented only as a player on the lyre,
while
song is the province of the Muses;
but in course of time he grows to be the
god, as they are the goddesses, of song and poetry,
        and is therefore
Mousagetês (leader of the Muses) as well as master of the choral dance,
       
which goes with music and song. And as the friend of all that beautifies life he is intimately
    associated with the Graces
[Graces meaning CHARIS meaning Charismatic
        meaning the MARK of homosexual "worship"]

This elevating and inspiring influence on the mind is the Laded Burden Jesus came to put down or the Self-pleasure or "creation of mental excitement" outlawed by Paul in Romans 15 SO THAT


A CHRISTIAN is a DISCIPLE and a DISCIPLE is a STUDENT.  Disciples of Christ "command to teach and observe what Jesus commanded to be taught.  Jesus did not COMMAND any music concept and did not practice it either in the Jewish synagogues or when He assembled or synagogued with the Christians two first days of the week in a row.

Up Front we can dogmatically assert that Psallo at no time in recorded history DID or could be translates as to "sing to the accompaniment of a harp." Nevertheless,
Lexicons can be Wrong: In 1957 William F. Arndt and F. Wilbur Gingrich brought Walter Bauer's German lexicon of the Greek New Testament into English. Bauer had translated psallo to mean "sing." Arndt and Gingrich, on their own, added a phrase, "to the accompaniment of a harp."

The new lexicon was considered to be "first rank in its field" (J.W. Roberts), and it gave welcome assurance to instrumentalists that the New Testament commands mechanical music in Christian worship.
        Previous lexicons (Grimm-Thayer, Green, Abbott-Smith, etc.) had limited the New Testament meaning of psallo to "sing," but now that a lexicon with scholarly credentials had added the words, "to the accompaniment of a harp," the matter was considered settled once for all in favor of the instrument.
Of course, psallo never meant "sing" either in any historic literature. In fact, Psallo has no DEFINITION of making music in any sense. If one plucks a harp string with the fingers and never with a plectrum then it makes a twanging sound. But telling a guitarist to smite a string with his finger would not tell him to "make music."

The ROOT of Psallo was used by the translators to define something literally quite evil or perverted: Psalms were used to "praise" or make self vile to intimidate the enemy warrior to turn tail or he would be robbed, sexually molested (a power sign) and then killed.

This is because the NAGAN or NAGASH type words were used of the naked men stomping out grapes in a vat (at Gath) while the women (always before David) provided a Makes Work Sound like using slavery to build the Temple with the Musical Master setting the pace:
Of the Priests and Levites who made noise and were called Parasites:

He don' plant taters, he don't plant cotton
An' dem dat plants' em is soon forgotten

Of Those God warned the elderr that the King set over them would make them slaves of the watchtower:

You an' me, we sweat an' strain
Body all achin' an' wracked wid pain,
Tote dat barge! Lif' dat bale!
Git a little drunk an' you lands in jail

Jesus died to remove the Burden Laders and the Laded Burdens which were songs "which created spiritual anxiety" in the religious ovservations to which the Kingdom does not come.

Ah gits weary an' sick o' tryin'
Ah'm tired o livin' an' skeered o' dyin'
But ol' man river

If Jesus and the Kingdom of God does not come with OBSERVATION: your religious services, then it is a fact that institutional churches live, move and have their being on a latter day serfdom.

And Solomon told out three score and ten thousand men to bear burdens, and fourscore thousand to hew in the mountain, and three thousand and six hundred to oversee (excel) them. 2Chr 2:2

2Chronicles 10:8 But he forsook the counsel which the old men gave him, and took counsel with the young men that were brought up with him, that stood before him.
2Chronicles 10:9 And he said unto them, What advice give ye that we may return answer to this people, which have spoken to me, saying, Ease somewhat the yoke that thy father did put upon us?
2Chronicles 10:10 And the young men that were brought up with him spake unto him, saying, Thus shalt thou answer the people that spake unto thee, saying, Thy father made our yoke heavy, but make thou it somewhat lighter for us; thus shalt thou say unto them, My little finger shall be thicker than my father’s loins.
2Chronicles 10:11 For whereas my father put a heavy yoke upon you, I will put more to your yoke: my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.

And the men did the work faithfully: and the overseers of them were Jahath and Obadiah, the Levites, of the sons of Merari; and Zechariah and Meshullam, of the sons of the Kohathites, to set it forward; and other of the Levites, all that could skill of instruments [orgănum organon, of musick.

Without having a remote idea of the evil that lurks under the PSALLO words or the HALAL words, new Lords of the Plantation use music which from clay tablets onward were recognized as having unreasonable power over the minds of people who are in fact built on a wave-like foundation.

It is a fact that all playing of musical instruments are derived from something violent. For instance, if psallo is used to make a bowstring twang to send forth a singing arrow, that might sound like 'music' but the arrow abrades (psallo) or destroys the literal heart.

If one plucks a harp string that does not make music. Why would one be so anxious to use words rooted in evil to imagine that God wants you to use the ROOT CONCEPT in "worship." If Psallo has the same root meaning as SOP why would Christ's action toward Judas which caused Satan to enter into him be a spiritual concept unless you intend to hurt someone. Music derived from mystery meant "to make the lambs dumb before the slaugher" or to make the initiates cries of agony when being sodomized unnoticed.  Paul therefore makes the psallo an effect upon the human heart to exclude machines for doing hard work.

  If PSALLO is authority to deliberately sow discord and become an instrumental Sect then the FIRST meaning of Choice which you probably don't want to do as ACTS of worship.

Plutarch, Lives [4] Such objects are to be found in virtuous deeds; these implant in those who search them out a great and zealous eagerness which leads to imitation. In other cases, admiration of the deed is not immediately accompanied by an impulse to do it. Nay, many times, on the contrary, while we delight in the work, we despise the workman
        as, for instance, in the case of perfumes and dyes;
        we take a
delight in them but dyers and perfumers we regard as illiberal and vulgar folk

so miltokharēs skhoinos psallomenē a carpenter's red line, which is twitched and then suddenly let go, so as to leave a mark, AP6.103 


Psallo is never used in connection with a carpenter's red line: the red line or papyrus rope was polluted with all kinds of filth.  It was used to TWITCH any person who dallied in the Agora or marketplace where all the performance self-speakers, singers, instrument players, actors, pagan temples, radishes and male prostitutes and radishes were sold.  They were forcefully driven to the PNX in Athens to the ekklesia which was the pattern for the assembly of the Christian assembly as a school of the Word only. They were MARKED, fined and not permitted to participate with the decent citizen members of the ekklesia.
EXCLUDED: AGORA: The agora also served for theatrical and gymnastic performances until special buildings and spaces were reserved for these purposes. In Athens respectable women were seldom seen in the agora. Men accused of murder and other crimes were forbidden to enter it before their trials. Free men went there not only to transact business and to act as jurors but also to talk and idle--a habit often mentioned by comic poets. [This included the temple of Apollo Patroös, as well as the altar of the Twelve Gods and the 12 hermae or colums which were giant penises.]
EXCLUDED BY JESUS: singers, pipers, actors.

Jesus consigned the Pipers trying to get others to sing or lament and dance to the marketplace or the AGORA.

In Isaiah 55 The Spirit OF Christ denied that the free water of the Word could be sold: by definition if it has to be sold to attract the paying audience it is not the WORDS of Christ  which are to be taught as He commanded they be taught.  Christ equates His Words to His Spirit or the Mind of Christ: Jesus paid it all.

In Isaiah 58 the Spirit OF Christ defined His rest as not seeking our own pleasure and not speaking our own words. No man knows the mind of God and therefore has nothing to say.

2Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ,
        and maketh manifest the savour of HIS knowledge by us in every place.

2Corinthians 2:16 To the one we are the savour of death unto death;
        and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?
2Corinthians 2:17 For we are not as many, 

Jesus doesn't speak to the many or POLUS: we have to go outside of the came to find Jesus and accept the invitation to "come learn of Me." The MANY Corrupt the Word of God by selling what Jesus died for:

SCENE: The Athenian Ecclesia on the Pnyx; afterwards Dicaeopolis' house in the country.

In the marketplace where Jesus consigned the pipers, singers and instrument players where all performances were quarantined FROM the Ekklesia

But the day when I was impatiently awaiting a piece by Aeschylus,4 what tragic despair it caused me when the herald called, “Theognis,5 introduce your Chorus!” Just imagine how this blow struck straight at my heart! On the other hand, what joy Dexitheus caused me at the musical competition, when he played a Boeotian melody on the lyre! But this year by contrast! Oh! what deadly torture to hear Chaeris6 perform the prelude in the Orthian mode! 7 --Never, however, since I began to bathe, has the dust hurt my eyes as it does to-day. Still it is the day of assembly; all should be here at daybreak, and yet the Pnyx8 is still deserted.

Note 8 A hill near the Acropolis, where the Assemblies were held.

THE MEANING OF PSALLO: Pollutes you to disqualify you from "church".

They are gossiping in the marketplace, slipping hither and thither to avoid the vermilioned rope.9 The Prytanes10 even do not come; they will be late, but when they come they will push and fight each other for a seat in the front row. They will never trouble themselves with the question of peace. Oh! Athens! Athens! As for myself, I do not fail to come here before all the rest, and now, finding myself alone, I groan, yawn, stretch, break wind, and know not what to do; I make sketches in the dust, pull out my loose hairs, muse, think of my fields, long for peace, curse town life and regret my dear country home,11 which never told me to `buy fuel, vinegar or oil'; there the word `buy,' which cuts me in two, was unknown; I harvested everything at will. Therefore I have come to the assembly fully prepared to bawl,
        interrupt and abuse the speakers, if they talk of anything but peace.
But here come the Prytanes, and high time too, for it is midday! As I foretold, hah! is it not so? They are pushing and fighting for the front seats.

Note 9 -Miltophurês  A gang of slaves, called Scythians, carrying ropes dipped in red ochre (miltos, hence Miltiades, i.e. the Red-Haired) would travel through the city on the days the Ecclesia was to meet, and would lash those citizens not in attendance with their ropes. With garments thus stained, shamed citizens could legally carry out no business until they visited the meeting grounds of the Ecclesia on the hill called the Pnyx.
But the day when I was impatiently awaiting a piece by Aeschylus, what tragic despair it caused me when the herald called, “Theognis, introduce your Chorus!”
   Fifth,  you are OBLIGATED to remove the men and women shooting VIRTUAL arrows into your heart while pretending to lead you into the presence of God: that means claim to be MEDIATORS.

Xen. Sym. 9.3 Then, to start proceedings, in came Ariadne, apparelled as a bride [numphē], and took her seat in the chair. Dionysus being still invisible, there was heard the Bacchic music played on a flute. Then it was that the assemblage was filled with admiration of the dancing master. For as soon as Ariadne heard the strain, her action was such that every one might have perceived her joy at the sound; and although she did not go to meet Dionysus, nor even rise, yet it was clear that she kept her composure with difficulty.

Pind. I. 5 Men whose voices name the outstanding island of Aegina as their fatherland, built long ago [45] as a tower for lofty excellence to ascend. My swift tongue has many arrows, to shout the praises of these heroes.

Soph. Ant. 1085
There, now, are arrows for your heart, since you provoke me, [1085] launched at you, archer-like, in my anger. They fly true—you cannot run from their burning sting. Boy, lead me home, so that he may launch his rage against younger men, and learn to keep a quieter tongue [1090] and a better mind within his breast than he now bears.Exit Teiresias.

In Psalm 41 it was prophesied that Judas would not be able to triumph over Messiah: that act is excluded from the synagogue and excludes "vocal or instrumental rejoicing" including elevated forms of speech.  The Judas bag was always attached to a flute case for carrying the mouth pieces of wind instruments.  At the last supper Jesus had ground the SOP for him as the mark that Satan had entered him.
Sixth, you should know that music is derived from mystery meaning "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter" or silence the voice of the Victim. Levite instrument players performed as soothsayers or sorcerers as the word is often interchanged. They and all sacrificial instrument players were called PARASITES because they lived off the NOT commanded animal sacrifices.

  The root of PSALLO has the meaning as SOP
: the mark for Satan to enter Judas. The Judas bag was for "carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments" because he was a thief.

Athenaeus, The Deipnosophists, Book 14
book 14, chapter 35: ... estin, ho men gar hēdistos Anakreōn legei pou: psallō d' eikosi khordaisi magadin ekhōn, ō Leukaspi, su
But some people raise a question how, as the magadis did not exist in the time of Anacreon (for instruments with many strings were never seen till after his time), Anacreon can possibly mention it, as he does when he says-
      I hold my magadis and sing,
      Striking [psallō] loud the twentieth string,
      O Leucaspis.
But Poseidonius is ignorant that the magadis is an ancient instrument, though Pindarus says plainly enough that Terpander invented the barbitos to correspond to, and answer the pectis in use among the Lydians-
      The sweet responsive lyre
      Which long ago the Lesbian bard,
      Terpander, did invent, sweet ornament
      To the luxurious Lydian feasts, when he
      Heard the high-toned pectis.
However, Diogenes the tragic poet represents the pectis as differing from the magadis; for in his Semele he says-
      And now I hear the turban-wearing women,
      Votaries of the Asiatic Cybele,
      The wealthy Phrygians' daughters, loudly sounding
      With drums, and bull-roarers, and brazen-clashing
      Cymbals, their hands each striking in concert,
      Pour forth a wise and healing hymn to the gods.
  Likewise the Lydian and the Bactrian maids
      Who dwell beside the Halys, loudly worship
      The Tmolian goddess Artemis, who loves
      The laurel shade of the thick leafy grove,
      Striking the clear three-cornered pectis, and
      Raising responsive tunes upon the magadis,
      While flutes in Persian manner neatly joined
      Accompany the chorus.

In Psalm 41 it was prophesied that Judas would not be able to triumph over Messiah: that act is excluded from the synagogue and excludes "vocal or instrumental rejoicing" including elevated forms of speech.  The Judas bag was always attached to a flute case for carrying the mouth pieces of wind instruments.  At the last supper Jesus had ground the SOP for him as the mark that Satan had entered him.

Grant, then, forgiveness to the Lydians, and to
make sure of their never rebelling against thee, or alarming thee more, send and forbid them to keep any weapons of war,
        command them
to wear tunics under their cloaks,
        and to put buskins upon their legs,

        and make them bring up their sons to cithern-playing (Kitharizein), singing (psallein),
        and shop-keeping (Hucksterism). 
So wilt thou soon see them become women instead of men,
and there will be no more fear of their revolting from thee."

  Eighth, Lucian is used as PROOF that Psallo DEMANDED plucking a musical instrument.  However, Lucian wrote in Attic Greek because he was a PARASITE and knew how to attract the more educated classes of the Civil and military.

Ar.Eq.522, Hippias (?) in PHib.1.13.24; “koraisMen.Epit.260; “psallein ouk eni aneu lurasLuc.Par.17:
Kore or Core   of maiden-goddesses, however old, as the Eumenides, A.Eu.68, S.OC127 (lyr.); the Phorcids, A.Pr.794; the Sphinx, S.OT508 (lyr.); the Fates, concubine, of a hetaira

Lucian the Parasite
:
17 Other arts, again, are useless to their professor unless he has his plant;
you cannot play [aulein] the flute [aulōn] if you have not one to play;
lyrical music requires a lyre,
Or you cannot play [psallein] a harp without a harp. [luras]
horsemanship a horse.

But of ours one of the excellences and conveniences is that no instrument is required for its exercise. Other arts we pay, this we are paid, to learn18. Further, while the rest have their teachers, no one teaches19 sponging; it is a gift from Heaven, as Socrates said of poetry.

Lucian the Parasite17 kai hai men allai tekhnai khōris organōn oudamōs kektēmenō hupēretein dunantai:
oute gar aulein eni khōris aulōn
oute psallein aneu luras
oute hippeuein aneu hippou:

—Prov., rhaon ē tis an khordēn psēleie 'as easy as falling off a log', Aristid.Or.26(14).31.

Ninth, when psallo is used meaning to sing TO a harp that meant of strike a string and match the voice to that note.  However, psallo is NEVER defined as singing to a harp. The lexicon means that psallo is used in connection with the harp.

2.
later, sing TO harp, LXX Ps.7.18, 9.12, al.;

But NEVER in the Bible.  When you sing TO a harp you SMITE a string and then MATCH the sound with YOUR voice. Singing is not a NATURAL thing. IF you want to impose PSALLO in the assembly you need only ONE harp. The "worship leader" smites one of a few strings. Then YOU match your voice to the struck string.  There is no example of a harpists PLAYING with a group of others accompanying him.  The Musical idolatry at Mount Sinai involved some kind of MASSES falling from grace by PROFANING the REST day.

If, on the other hand, psallo demands playing on a harp then every person must have their own harp.

There is no harp in any of these Psalms

Psa. 7:6 Arise, O LORD, in thine anger,
        lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies:
        and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.
Psa. 7:7 So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about:
        for their sakes therefore return thou on high.
Psa. 7:8 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD,
        according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.

Psa. 7:13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death;
        he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.

All plucking or playing words implicate warfare.

Psa. 7:17 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness:
        and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.

"And so the lyre-player [psaltees] not rudely nor inelegantly put the curb on Phillip when he tried to dispute with him about the way to strike [psalles] the lyre [psalteerion]. -Moralia, p. 67F.

Playing a harp AND singing at the same time was the mark of Children or gender-confused males.
Again, Phrynichus says in The Phoenician Women, '
        With [1] plucking [
psalmoisin]
        of the
[2] strings
        they
[3] sing [aeidontes]
        their lays in answering strains." -The
Deiphnosphists, XIV. 635,     

  Likewise the Lydian and the Bactrian maids
      Who dwell beside the Halys, loudly worship
      The Tmolian goddess Artemis, who loves
      The laurel shade of the thick leafy grove,
      Striking the clear three-cornered pectis, and
      Raising responsive tunes upon the magadis,
      While flutes in Persian manner neatly joined
      Accompany the chorus.
Psalms 7:17 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
Psalm 7.18 confitebor Domino secundum iustitiam eius et psallam nomini Domini altissimi

In the same way without any harps:

Tenth, psallo is used in connection with the HEART.  If Paul thought of playing a harp then he would have violated all the rules of ancient and modern grammar.  If anyone today asks someone to PLUCK or SMITE he might get smacked in the face. To make this connection DESPISES the Holy Spirit of Christ by saying that He was too ignorant not to NAME a mechanical instrument or use COMPOUND words for each instrument and each form of smiting an instrument.

This would be a common expression to readers:

The man who was dying blessed me; I made the widow's heart sing. Jb.29:13

So my heart laments for Moab like a flute;
        it laments like a flute for the men of Kir Hareseth.

        Therefore did my heart rejoice,

In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. Lu.10:21

Plautus, Curculio CAPPADOX My spleen is killing me, my reins are in torment, my lungs are being torn asunder, my liver is being tortured, my heart-strings are giving way, all my intestines are in pain.

Hecuba Alas! a dreadful trial is near, it seems, [230] full of mourning, rich in tears. Yes, I too escaped death where death had been my due, and Zeus did not destroy me but is still preserving my life, that I may witness in my misery fresh sorrows surpassing all before. But if the bond may ask the free of things that do not GRIEVE them or WRENCH their heart-strings, you ought to speak in answer to my questions and I ought to hear what you have to say

GREGORY OF NYSSA (died c394)

8 . Now since man is a rational animal,
the
instrument of his body must be made suitable for the use of reason;
as you may see musicians producing
their music according to the form of their instruments,

and not piping with harps nor harping upon flutes,

so it must needs be that the organization of these instruments of ours should be adapted for reason, that when struck by the vocal organs it might be able to sound properly for the use of words.

2. And as some skilled musician, who may have been deprived by some affection of his own voice, and yet wish to make his skill known,

might make melody with voices of others,
and
publish his art by the aid of flutes or of the lyre,

so also the human mind being a discoverer of all sorts of conceptions, seeing that it is unable, by the mere soul, to reveal to those who hear by bodily senses the motions of its understanding, touches, like some skilful composer, these animated instruments, and makes known its hidden thoughts by means of the sound produced upon them.

THIS WAS ALWAYS THE MEANING IN A RELIGIOUS SENSE, AS OPPOSED TO MAKING WAR AND SEX.

Psalmus , i, m., = psalmos, i. q. psalma, I. a psalm (eccl. Lat.; cf.: “carmen, hymnus),Tert. adv. Prax. 11; Lact. 4, 8, 14; 4, 12, 7; Vulg. Isa. 38, 20.—Esp., the Psalms of David, Vulg. Luc. 20, 42; id. Act. 13, 33 et saep

Our external Teaching and Admonishing one another is vocal where LOGOS excludes poetry or music.
Our internal "worship" is IN the Spirit: God is Spirit and we must worship in SPIRIT (a Place) and in TRUTH (thy Word is truth.)

Eleventh, psallo speaks of the harp being STRUCK. Therefore, a lifeless instrument of carnal weapon cannot participate just because it is struck.
 

3.
Passive OF the instrument, to be struck or played, STRIKE “psallomenē A GUT string khordēArist.Pr.919b2; also of persons, to be played to on the harp, Macho ap.Ath.8.348f.

Plat. Lysis 209b And, I suppose, when you take your lyre, neither your father nor your mother prevents you from tightening [epiteinō screw up], or slackening [aniēmi] what string [gut] you please, or from using your finger [psēlai] or your plectrum [plēktrō] at will: or do they prevent you? Oh, no. Then whatever can be the reason, Lysis, why they do not prevent you here,

kai psēlai kai krouein plēktrō. ē diakōluousin;
Psallo OUTLAWS the plectrum: II. mostly of the strings of musical instruments, play a stringed instrument with the fingers, and not with the plectron, “psēlai kai krouein plēktrō

The later Jews did not use the harp on the Sabbath (Rest) day because "psallowing" or "aniemi" the gut strings would be considered WORK.

The Spirit OF Christ knew that if He intended to say "Play a Harp" or other instrument you MUST use two words or compound words. If the Spirit did not know better, those who use PSALLO accuse Him of being ignorant and that is blasphemy.
PLAYING and AN INSTRUMENT always uses a compound word such as:

Girardian Reflections on the Lectionary:
5.4.2
Behind the anthropological predilections against the victim's perspective, there is a very practical, quasi-historical reason: namely, the victim is shunned and often killed. In the ancient world, the role of music during ritual sacrifice was often to drown out any cries from the victim. (45) It is crucial that the victim not be heard. The practical mechanics of making victims means that it is unusual for the victim's perspective to survive. In the world of ancient ritual it was probably impossible.


45. The Greek verb myo means to close the mouth or shut the eyes. There is debate about whether myo plays a crucial role in the etymology of other significant words such as myth, mystery, and even music. These etymologies make sense within the Girardian hypotheses.
          Myth means to close ourselves to the victim and tell the tale according to the perpetrator's perspective;
          mystery cults are based on the silence of the victims; music derives from drowning out
          the voice of the victim

5.5 In general, then, the survival of the victim's perspective is highly unusual as a historical phenomenon -- until more recent history, that is, when the victim's perspective has finally established a beachhead in Western culture, namely, the cultures most often in closest contact with the Gospel (more on this below). (And it must be emphasized that the close contact is in the category of being an accident of history and not by any meritorious claims for Western culture. In short, the perspective of the victim has established a place in Western culture not because of any inherent merit in Western culture but because of the historical accident of being in close proximity to the Gospel over a long period of time.)

Sall. C. 25, 2 (but in Cic. Cat. 2, 10, 23 the correct read. is saltare et cantare;
Sal. Cat. 25 In the number of those ladies was Sempronia, a woman who had committed many crimes with the spirit of a man. In birth and beauty, in her husband and her children, she was extremely fortunate; she was skilled in Greek and Roman literature; she could sing, play, and dance, with greater elegance than became a woman of virtue, and possessed many other accomplishments that tend to excite the passions... Her desires were so ardent that she oftener made advances to the other sex than waited for solicitation.

Cic. Catil. 2.10.23 In these bands are all the gamblers, all the adulterers, all the unclean and shameless citizens. These boys, so witty and delicate, have learnt not only to love and to be loved, not only to sing and to dance, but also to brandish daggers and to administer poisons; and unless they are driven out, unless they die, even should Catiline die, I warn you that the school [sēmĭnārĭus] of Catiline would exist in the republic. But what do those wretches want? Are they going to take their wives with them to the camp? how can they do without them, especially in these nights? and how will they endure the Apennines, and these frosts, and this snow? unless they think that they will bear the winter more easily because they have been in the habit of dancing naked at their feasts. O war much to be dreaded, when Catiline is going to have his bodyguard of prostitutes!

Gel. 703. When there was an end of eating and drinking, and the time came for conversation, Julianus asked that the singers and lyre-players be produced, the most skilful of both sexes, whom he knew that the young man had at hand. And when the boys and girls were brought in, they sang in a most charming way several odes of Anacreon and Sappho [Lesbian], as well as some erotic elegies of more recent poets that were sweet and graceful. But we were especially pleased with some delightful verses of Anacreon, written in his old age,  which I noted down, in order that sometimes the toil and worry of this task of mine might find relief in the sweetness of poetical compositions:

The gods have heard, the gods have heard my prayer;
Yes, Lyce! you are growing old, and still
You struggle to look fair;
You drink, and dance, and trill
impŭdens without shame, shameless, impudent
trĕmŭlus
lūdĭus ,

Your songs to youthful Love, in accents weak
With wine, and age, and passion. Youthful Love!
He dwells in Chia's cheek,
And hears her harp-strings move.

Who reign'd in Cinara's stead, a fair, fair face,
Queen of sweet arts? but Fate to Cinara gave
A life of little space;
And now she cheats the grave

Of Lyce, spared to raven's length of days,
That youth may see, with laughter and disgust,
A fire-brand, once ablaze,
Now smouldering in grey dust.
