Now whyle the Thracian Poet with this song delyghts the mynds
Of savage beastes, and drawes both stones and trees ageynst their kynds,
Hor. Ars 395 Orpheus, the priest and interpreter of the gods,
deterred the savage race of men from slaughters and inhuman diet; hence said to tame tigers and furious lions: Amphion too, the builder of the Theban wall, was said to give the stones motion with the sound of his lyre, and to lead them whithersoever he would, by engaging persuasion
G5157 tropē that is, revolution (figuratively variation):—turning.
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and cometh down from the Father of lights,
with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning
“Pythia cantica” Hor. Ars 414, songs like the hymns which were sung in honor of Apollon, by the chorus in some comedies. A player, called Pythaules, played during the intervals when the chorus left off singing.
Paul warned about Jewish Fables and the Prophets speak of the Lying Pen of the Scribes who wrote about the Temple God did not command.
"Amphion was connected with Orpheus and JUBAL who was the "father of them that play the lyre."A Greek Tretise on Music, by Philodemus; and here we have the truth represented which lay hidden under the fables of Orpheus and Amphion. This latter was a skilful harper, who was frequently employed by the Theban workmen to play to them while engaged in their lavour, and for which they rewarded him out of the proceeds of that labor. So powerful and pleasing was his music, that they went lightly and comfortably through their work; and time and labour passed on without tedium or fatigue; and the walls and towers were speedily raised." Clark, II Chron 34:12).
Romans 14 outlaws the ORPHICS where Orpheus is the inventor of IMpure worship or THRESKIABehold the wyves of Ciconie with red deer skinnes about
Their furious brists as in the feeld they gadded on a rout,
Espyde him from a hillocks toppe still singing to his harp.
Of whom one shooke her head at him, and thus began to carp:
Behold (sayes shee) behold yoon same is he that doth disdeine
Us women. And with that same woord shee sent her lawnce amayne
At Orphyes singing mouth. The Lawnce armd round about with leaves,
Did hit him, and without a wound a marke behynd it leaves.
Another threw a stone at him, which vanquisht with his sweete
And most melodius harmonye, fell humbly at his feete
As sorye for the furious act it purposed. But rash
And heady ryot out of frame all reason now did dash,
And frantik outrage reigned. Yit had the sweetenesse of his song
Appeasd all weapons, saving that the NOYSE now growing strong
With blowing shalmes,
and beating drummes, and bedlem howling out,
And clapping hands on every syde by Bacchus drunken rout,
Did drowne the sownd of Orphyes harp. Then first of all stones were
Made ruddy with the prophets blood, and could not give him eare.
And first the flocke of Bacchus froes by violence brake the ring
Of Serpents, birds, and savage beastes that for to heere him sing
Sate gazing round about him there. And then with bluddy hands
They ran uppon the prophet who among them singing stands.
They flockt about him like as when a sort of birds have found
An Owle a daytymes in a tod: and hem him in full round,
As when a Stag by hungrye hownds is in a morning found,
The which forestall him round about and pull him to the ground.
Even so the prophet they assayle, and throwe their Thyrses greene
At him, which for another use than that invented beene.
Sum cast mee clods, sum boughes of trees, and sum threw stones. And lest
That weapons wherwithall to wreake theyr woodnesse which increast
Should want, it chaunst that Oxen by were tilling of the ground
And labring men with brawned armes not farre fro thence were found
Psa. 22:11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.
Psa. 22:12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
Psa. 22:13 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
Psa. 22:14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint:
my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
Psa. 22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd;
and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws;
and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
Psa. 22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me
they pierced my hands and my feet.
Psa. 22:17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
Psa. 22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
Psa. 22:19 But be not thou far from me, O Lord: O my strength, haste thee to help me.
Psa. 22:20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
Psa. 22:21 Save me from the lion’s mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
