Abstract The biblical narrators utilize sounds of musical instruments and/or human voices being raised emotionally and their being heard someplace else as a literary tool and transitioning the reader from one place or group of people to another. The article discusses this literary tool as it appears in a number of narratives in the Hebrew Bible (namely, the Joseph Story, Ark Narrative, Throne Succession Narrative, Deuteronomistic and Chronistic histories, as well as the book of Ezra), and its effects.
