Easton's Bible Dictionary: M. G. Easton, M.A., D.D.

Flute

A musical instrument, probably composed of a number of pipes, mentioned Dan. 3:5, 7, 10, 15.

In Mt. 9:23,24, notice is taken of players on the flute, here called "minstrels" (but in R.V. "flute-players").

Flutes were in common use among the ancient Egyptians.
