(3) Ten strings.--See Note, Psalm 33:2.

Upon the harp with a solemn sound.--Rather, with music of the harp. For the Hebrew word, see Note, Psalm 9:16.

Verse 3. - Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery. Some think that only one instrument is intended here, and translate, "Upon an instrument of ten strings, even upon the psaltery" (or, "the lute"). (On the character of the psaltery, see the comment on Psalm 33:2.) Upon the harp with a solemn sound. The reference is clearly to the public service of the temple, since in the private devotions of the faithful instruments were not likely to be used.
