137 - The dedication of the temple.


1 Kings 7: 51 , 8: 1-11
2 Chronicles 5: 1-14, 6: 1-11
Psalm 115: 1-18, A Psalm of the one true God 114: 1-4 A prayer of thanks 134: 1-3 A call to praise God 136: 1-25

Solomon assembled the Jerusalem elders of Israel and tribal heads along with the ancestral chiefs of the Israelites to bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord up from the city of David, that is, Zion. and this they did. The priests brought the ark of the Lord's covenant to its place into the inner sanctuary of the temple, to the most holy place beneath the wings of the cherubim. The cherubim spread their wings over the place of the ark so that the cherubim formed a cover above the ark and it's poles. Nothing was in the ark except the two tablets that Moses had put in it at Horeb where the Lord had made a covenant with the Israelites when they came out of Egypt.
Then the Levitical singers of Asaph, of heman of Jeduthun and their sons and relatives dressed in fine linen with cymbals, harps and lyres, were standing east of the altar, and with them were 120 priests blowing trumpets. The trumpeters and singers joined together to praise and thank the Lord with one voice. They raised their voices, accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and musical instruments, in praise to the Lord.
For He is good; His faithful love endures forever.
The the Lord's temple, was filled with a cloud. And because of the cloud the priest were not able to continue ministering, for the glory of the Lord filled God's temple.
