Synopsis 2Chron 29:23-34 5/6/2020
King Hezekiah called together all the princes of Israel who lived in Jerusalem. As part of the reopening of the Temple, they assembled to offer purification offerings.
And after these offerings were set before the Lord, Hezekiah ordered the musicians and singers to offer praise songs to God. So, the entire assembly sang out the songs of praise which King David and Asaph had written generations before.
Finally, after this, came the goodwill offerings. The people in the assembly offered so many animals that the priests could not process all the sacrifices. As a result, the Levites came forward to assist in this priestly activity.
Full Of Joy
King Hezekiah directed the singers to offer praises to God in song. And so, “They sang until their joy was full”.
Sing for Joy
Every culture has music and song. So, it seems safe to say that there is a reason song is so pervasive in virtually every culture.
But what does it mean that Hezekiah and the assembly sang “until their joy was full”?
“I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God while I live.” Psa 104:33
