Hi, thanks for responding. I hope we both get understanding from this. I love studying God's Word.
Acts 17:11 They studied the scriptures carefully every day. They wanted to see if what Paul said was true.
Ecc 1:13 I spent all my time studying.
Proverbs 10:23 a man who has understanding takes delight in wisdom.
((((My answer is yes! !. There's every indication it was used.))))
You correct my friend in old testament but the new though
There is no record in the new testament of Christians using instruments to produce music in worship services.
Luke whom written Acts, Paul the apostle whom written to Christians the letters of Romans to Philemon, the writer whom written hebrews, James the brother of Christ whom written to Christians the letter James, Peter the apostle whom written to Christians the letters of 1st and 2nd Peter, John the apostle whom written to Christian the letters of 1st 2nd and third John, Jude the brother of Christ who written to Christians the letter of Jude...there is no record of them mentioning and authorizing the use of instruments to produce music in worship services.
There are only two scriptures from the letters of Romans to Jude that describe how music should be produced in worship services.
Ephesians 5:19 Speak to each other with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs.
Colossians 3:16 Sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord.

0k. Instruments and voices produce music.
