Biblical songs NOT found in the Book of Psalms
Not all of the songs in the Bible are found in the Psalms. Several musical pieces mentioned that are outside of the Psalms include the following.
A song of triumph was sung by Moses and all the Israelites after Pharaoh and his army were drowned in the Red Sea by God.
1. Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the LORD, and spoke, saying, "I will sing to the LORD, for He has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider He has thrown into the sea. 2. The LORD is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation. This is my God, and I will glorify Him, my father's God, and I will exalt Him (Exodus 15:1, HBFV)
A song, likely written by the Old Testament Judge Deborah, was sung when the Israelites were set free from the Canaanites (Judges 5:1 - 2).
Song of victory over David's enemies.
1 When the Lord saved David from Saul and his other enemies, David sang this song to the Lord: 2 The Lord is my protector; he is my strong fortress. (2Samuel 22:1 - 2)
A song of praise was sung when Jerusalem's new temple was dedicated by King Solomon. The Levites, who were God's appointed priests at the temple, used harps, cymbals and their own voices to sing thanksgiving to God (2Chronicles 5:13).
Song to be sung after the dead are resurrected and the ancient Israelites are restored to the land they originally inherited from God (Isaiah 26:1 - 3).
A song of victory will soon be sung by those who overcome the Beast and his false system that will be set up on earth during the great tribulation (Revelation 15:1 - 4).
