After a long
period of research, hard work and exciting discoveries, the Music
from God project
has completed a masterpiece: the Days of Majesty CD. Talented
musicians have brought to life
music that was encrypted into the Hebrew text of the Bible nearly
three thousand years ago -
music that has been waiting all this time to be discovered.
If you happen
to own the first version you were aware of its
power - this new creastion emphasises the
hidden in the Biblical verses as well
as its meditative

buried in antiquity, the Center for Biblical Hebrew have discovered
how to take the
Hebrew text of the Bible and translate it, letter by letter,
into musical notes. The results are astounding! You can actually hear the Bible
on the samples below to hear the music:
Days of Majesty
contains special chapters from the book of Psalms that were sung
each day of the week
by the Levites in the Jerusalem Temple. It also includes verses
from the "Song of Moses" (Shirat HaYam) found in the Book of Exodus
- a song that was sung by Moses and the children of Israel
after the miraculous parting of the sea. As you listen again and again to these
songs, you will learn to identify each Psalm by its own distinct
whole being will praise God in the most powerful way known to
man - through music. The vision of Music from God is to translate the entire Hebrew
text of the Bible into music. Through its music, anyone can experience
the power of the Bible in its original language.
verses and chapters from the original Hebrew text of the Bible
were translated to musical notes to create the music you hear
on this CD. Several years of research, hard work and collaboration
between many talented people culminated in this beautiful presentation.
The CD includes 11 tracks of music that were directly translated
from the Hebrew text:
This is one of the most universally beloved of all Psalms. Its
haunting, spiritual melody is beautifully expressed by acclaimed
violinist J'anna Jacoby. 2-4.
Exodus 15:1-3, Exodus 15:4-6, Exodus 15:7-10
These three tracks depict the music in the Hebrew text of the
"Song of the Sea." Moses and the children of Israel
sang these words after they witnessed God's miracle, and walked
to freedom on dry land inside the Sea of Reeds. The music is
somber at times, as appropriate to the gravity of the situation.
Israel was saved, but at the cost of human lives. The music is
not happy, rejoicing over the deaths of the Egyptian soldiers,
rather, it is a muted song of praise to God who saved the people
of Israel from the hands of their pursuers. The music resembles
the powerful water, as it stood upright, and the depth of the
sea that covered the horses, the chariots and the army of the
Seven "Days of Majesty" The
last seven selections are translated from the text of seven Psalms
which tradition says were the daily songs sung by the Levitical
choir in the holy Temple in Jerusalem. Each day, the Levite
choir stood atop the platform located in the Court of Israel,
facing the outer altar, and sang a special song for that particular
through Friday: Six days of Praise for the Work of Creation 5.
Psalm 24: Sunday, the first day of the week, begins with "The earth
is the LORD's, and the fullness thereof." Sunday is the
first day of creation; on this day the LORD acquired heaven and
earth for Himself, and established sovereignty over His world. 6.
Psalm 48: Monday, the second day of the week, begins with "Great is
the LORD, and highly to be praised in the city of our God, in
the mountain of His holiness." It was on this day that the
waters were divided, and a firmament was put in place between
the upper and lower waters (Gen. 1:67). 7.
Psalm 82: Tuesday, the third day of the week, the Levites sang beginning
with the words "God stands in the Divine assembly, in the
midst of judges shall he judge." On this day of creation
dry land became visible, and on this land, the judges stand to
render their decisions. 8.
Psalm 94: Wednesday, the fourth day of the week, begins with "O Lord
God, to whom vengeance belongs; O God, to whom vengeance belongs,
shine forth!" This was the day when the sun, moon and stars
were created. Later, men would mistakenly worship these created
things and forget the Creator. 9.
Psalm 81: Thursday, the fifth day of the week, begins with "Sing aloud
to God our strength: make a joyful noise to the God of Jacob."
The living creatures were created on this day. To be alive and
aware of the wonders of Creation is to be filled with joy and
Psalm 93: Friday, the sixth day of the week, the Levites sang "The
LORD reigns, He is clothed in majesty." Creation was crowned
and completed on this day, the last of the original six days
of creation. Today man was created, and only he can recognize
God's true greatness. Of all the vastness of creation, man alone
has the capacity to understand the Creator's rulership, and accept
it upon himself to be the king's subject. 11.
Psalm 92: For this holy day, the Levites sang, "A psalm, a song for
the Sabbath day." Israel's sages taught this Psalm was a
song for the future, rectified world "the day which is complete
Sabbath tranquility, for everlasting life."
