The king was filled with an evil spirit,
When his reign was coming to end.
He received council from his servants,
For him to be made well again.
They wished for a skilled musician,
One who could play well on the harp.
King Saul made the final decision,
After they talked of the man for the job.
Message was sent for the son of Jesse,
Whose hands were cunning when he played.
David was prudent, valiant, and mighty,
Including comely in the face.
1st Samuel 16: 14-18
