1 Chronicles 16:29
29Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name;
         Bring an offering, and come before Him;
         Worship the LORD in holy array.

30Tremble before Him, all the earth;
         Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved.

31Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
         And let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns.”

32Let the sea roar, and all it contains;
         Let the field exult, and all that is in it.

33Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the LORD;
         For He is coming to judge the earth.

34O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
         For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

35Then say, “Save us, O God of our salvation,
         And gather us and deliver us from the nations,
         To give thanks to Your holy name,
         And glory in Your praise.”

36Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel,
         From everlasting even to everlasting.
         Then all the people said, “Amen,” and praised the LORD.

Worship before the Ark

      37So he left Asaph and his relatives there before the ark of the covenant of the LORD to minister before the ark continually, as every day’s work required; 38and Obed-edom with his 68 relatives; Obed-edom, also the son of Jeduthun, and Hosah as gatekeepers. 39He left Zadok the priest and his relatives the priests before the tabernacle of the LORD in the high place which was at Gibeon, 40to offer burnt offerings to the LORD on the altar of burnt offering continually morning and evening, even according to all that is written in the law of the LORD, which He commanded Israel. 41With them were Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest who were chosen, who were designated by name, to give thanks to the LORD, because His lovingkindness is everlasting. 42And with them were Heman and Jeduthun with trumpets and cymbals for those who should sound aloud, and with instruments for the songs of God, and the sons of Jeduthun for the gate.

      43Then all the people departed each to his house, and David returned to bless his household.

John Cunningham—The Ordinance of Covenanting

The comparative indifference with which Chronicles is regarded in modern times by all but professional scholars seems to have been shared by the ancient Jewish church. Though written by the same hand as wrote Ezra-Nehemiah, and forming, together with these books, a continuous history of Judah, it is placed after them in the Hebrew Bible, of which it forms the concluding book; and this no doubt points to the fact that it attained canonical distinction later than they. Nor is this unnatural. The book
