The children of Israel, led by the king (Solomon) brought the Tabernacle and the furnishing of the Tabernacle to the newly fabricated temple. In accordance with the Lord’s way the Ark of the Covenant was carried by the Levites and placed in its final resting place, in the Holy of Holies. With mechanical instruments the Levites played and sang praises to God. The Lord was pleased with this occasion.
Application: The Levites both played and sang: “For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever” (5:13). Wouldn’t it be good for each Christian to reflect and repeat these words in their own lives?
