In a recent NLI post entitled, “Talk About… God Music: The Levitical Band,” it read, “We are not told how David understood that he was to make this addition to the priestly role. The Bible only shows us that apparently, with God’s blessing, David introduced music/singing as a priestly responsibility in the worship of Yahweh.” This is incorrect.
II Chronicles 29: 25, 26 tells us that it was the Lord himself who instructed David to make these priestly revisions. “…stationed the Levites in the temple of the Lord with cymbals, harps and lyres in the way prescribed by David and Gad the king’s seer and Nathan the prophet; this was commanded by the Lord through his prophets. So the Levites stood ready with David’s instruments, and the priests with their trumpets.”
This serves to lend further credence as to the important relationship of music/singing and the worship of God!
