Wikipedia Encyclopedia: Conductors act as guides to the orchestras and/or choirs they conduct. They choose the works to be performed and study their scores, to which they may make certain adjustments (e.g., regarding tempo, articulation, phrasing, repetitions of sections, and so on), work out their interpretation, and relay their vision to the performers. They may also attend to organizational matters, such as scheduling rehearsals, planning a concert season, hearing auditions and selecting members, and promoting their ensemble in the media.



(Gal 3:21-26)  Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily [Gk: truth] righteousness [Gk: justification /// innocence, holiness] [i.e., salvation] should have been by the law. But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith [Gk: belief] of Jesus Christ [the anointed Jesus] might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, disclosed]. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified [Gk: rendered just or innocent: be righteous] by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

  1. Christ = Gk: the anointed /// through the idea of contact; to smear or rub with oil /// to handle, touch slightly.
  2. schoolmaster = Gk: a boy leader, a servant whose office it was to take the children to school; a tutor: instructor /// & /// to lead; bring, drive: carry, lead away.
    1. Commentary: symbolically, a boy leader herein represents the Law, and is a definite inference to a lack of maturity, Grace being that graduation mark and maturity (adulthood) achieved.
  3. Commentary: Yes, “we are no longer under a schoolmaster” but have we erased, removed, wiped out, expunged, or forgotten the Law which the schoolmaster has taught us, that same Law that has brought us to Christ, or are we still carrying about (as we do our secular education) His instructions, commands, and thoughts inside ourselves?



(Psa 19:1-3)  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens [i.e., all the heavenly company] declare [Heb: enumerate, celebrate: count, speak, tell (proclaim)] the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth [Heb: manifests] his handywork. Day unto day [the heavenly company] uttereth speech, and night unto night [the firmament] sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

  1. psalm = Heb: properly instrumental music; by implic. a poem set to notes /// through the idea of striking with the fingers); properly to touch the strings or parts of a musical instrument, play upon it; make music accompanied by voice; hence, celebrate in song and music: - give praise, sing forth praises.
  2. (Rom 10:17,18)  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word [Gk: rhema; the revelations] of God. But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.


(Psa 19:4-6)  Their line [Heb: a cord (as connecting); a musical string] is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them [His words] hath he set a tabernacle [Heb: a tent] for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit [Heb: course] unto the ends of it: and there is nothing [“yes, no one” Amplif.] hid from the heat thereof.

  1. (1 Cor 3:11-15)  For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work [Gk: toil: deeds, labour] shall be made manifest [Gk: shining, apparent]: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, disclosed] by fire; and the fire shall try [Gk: test] every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide [Gk: remain] which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned [Gk: consumed wholly], he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
    1. (Luke 3:16)  John [the Baptist] answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water [“unto repentance” Mat 3:11; Gk: to think differently]; but one mightier than I cometh [i.e., Jesus Christ], the latchet [Gk: strap, tie] of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost [at the conclusion of His First Coming: John 16:7] and [He shall baptize you] with fire [at the beginning of His Second Coming]:
    2. (John 16:7)  Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient [Gk: good, profitable] for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter [the Holy Ghost] will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
    3. (Zech 13:8,9)  And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein [i.e., two thirds] shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.


(Psa 19:7-10)  The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul [“restoring the (whole) person” Amplif.]: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes [Heb: precepts] of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure [“and bright” Amplif.], enlightening the eyes. The [“reverent” Amplif.] fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired [Heb: delighting] are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold [Heb: pure, refined gold]: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.


(Psa 19:11-14)  Moreover by them is thy servant warned [“reminded, illuminated and instructed” Amplif.]: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Who can understand his errors [“Who can discern his lapses and errors?” Amplif.]? cleanse thou me from [“unconscious” Amplif.] secret faults. Keep back [Heb: restrain] thy servant also from presumptuous [Heb: arrogant: proud] sins; let them not have dominion [Heb: rule, reign] over me: then shall I be upright [i.e., not an animal, but risen], and I shall be innocent from the great transgression [i.e., the only unforgivable sin – not receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior: Mat 12:31]. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation  of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength [“my rock” Amplif.], and my redeemer.

  1. meditation = Dict: continued thought; reflection; contemplation.
  2. meditation = Heb: a murmuring sound, that is, a musical notation (probably similar to the moder affettuoso to indicate solemnity of movement).
  3. redeem = Heb: to redeem (according to the Oriental law of kinship), that is, to be the next of kin (and as such to buy back a relatives property, marry his widow, etc.): avenger, deliverer, (do, perform the part of near, next) kinsfolk (-man), purchase, [pay] ransom, redeemer, revenger.
