|In my distress I called to the LORD; |
I called out to my God.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came to his ears.
|In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.|

And from His temple He heard my voice,
And my cry for help came into His ears.

David's fondness for music is recorded in many places in the Bible. He played skillfully on the harp (1 Sam. 16:18-23). He arranged worship services in the sanctuary (1 Chr. 6:31). He composed psalms of lament over Saul and Jonathan (2 Sam. 1:17-27). His musical activity was referred to by Amos (Amos 6:5), Ezra (Ezra 3:10), and Nehemiah (Neh. 7:24, 46)." (2 Sam. 23:1). Many of the psalms in the Book of Psalms are attributed to him.
