I Chronicles 16

“So David left Asaph and his brothers there before the ark of the covenant of the LORD to minister regularly before the ark as each day required” (v37).  Chronicles recounts how King David made music and worship to God central to Israel’s life, eventually producing the Psalms (Psalm 105 is repeated here, v8-34).  As well as guarding the tabernacle and presiding over sacrifices, many priests and Levites could play instruments and “were chosen and expressly named to give thanks to the LORD” (v41).

“Sing to the Lord, all the earth! Tell of his salvation from day to day” (v23).  Worship, which gives God glory and speaks truth and comfort to our hearts, is central to the life of God’s people.
