You silence the roar of the seas,
the roar of their waves,
and the tumult of the nations.
I will put an end to the noise of your songs, and the sound of your lyres will no longer be heard.
Take away from Me the noise of your songs!
I will not listen to the music of your harps.
Listen, a tumult on the mountains,
like that of a mighty people!
Listen, an uproar among the kingdoms,
like nations being gathered together!
The Lord of Hosts is mobilizing an army for war.
At the sound of the stomping hooves of his stallions,
the rumbling of his chariots,
and the clatter of their wheels,
fathers will not turn back for their sons,
because they will be utterly helpless
When Jesus came to the leader’s house, He saw the flute players and a crowd lamenting loudly.
1 Samuel 4:13-14
When he arrived, there was Eli sitting on his chair beside the road watching, because he was anxious about the ark of God. When the man entered the city to give a report, the entire city cried out. Eli heard the outcry and asked, “Why this commotion?” The man quickly came and reported to Eli.
When Joshua heard the sound of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, “There is a sound of war in the camp.” But Moses replied:It’s not the sound of a victory cry
and not the sound of a cry of defeat;
I hear the sound of singing!
They return at evening, snarling like dogs
and prowling around the city.
and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of mighty waters, and the earth shone with His glory.
For this is what the Lord said to me:As a lion or young lion growls over its prey
when a band of shepherds is called out against it,
and is not terrified by their shouting
or subdued by their noise,
so the Lord of Hosts will come down
to fight on Mount Zion
and on its hill.
There they will cry out,
“Pharaoh king of Egypt was all noise;
he let the opportune moment pass.”
They bound on the tops of the mountains.
Their sound is like the sound of chariots,
like the sound of fiery flames consuming stubble,
like a mighty army deployed for war.
The crack of the whip
and rumble of the wheel,
and jolting chariot!
When they moved, I heard the sound of their wings like the roar of mighty waters, like the voice of the Almighty, and a sound of commotion like the noise of an army. When they stood still, they lowered their wings.
