The Harp

The harp was the favorite instrument of King David. In I Chronicles 13:8 it is recorded: "And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps". Harps are also mentioned by John in his description of the music to be played in heaven. (Revelation 5:8, 14:2, 15:2) For Christians, the harp symbolizes all music which is sung or played to the glory of God.
