1 Chronicles 29:21-30 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
21 The following day they offered sacrifices to the Lord and burnt offerings to the Lord: 1,000 bulls, 1,000 rams, and 1,000 lambs, along with their drink offerings, and sacrifices in abundance for all Israel. 22 They ate and drank with great joy in the Lord's presence that day. Then, for a second time, they made David's son Solomon king; they anointed hima as the Lord's ruler, and Zadok as the priest.

The Enthronement of Solomon

23 Solomon sat on the Lord's throne as king in place of his father David. He prospered, and all Israel obeyed him.b 24 All the leaders and the mighty men, and all of King David's sons as well, pledged their allegiance to King Solomon. 25 The Lord highly exalted Solomon in the sight of all Israel and bestowed on him such royal majesty as had not been [bestowed] on any king over Israel before him.

A Summary of David's Life

26 David son of Jesse was king over all Israel. 27 The length of his reign over Israel was 40 years; he reigned in Hebron for seven years and in Jerusalem for 33.c 28 He died at a good old age, full of days, riches, and honor, and his son Solomon became king in his place. 29 As for the events of King David's [reign], from beginning to end, note that they are written about in the Events of Samuel the Seer, the Events of Nathan the Prophet, and the Events of Gad the Seer, 30 along with all his reign, his might, and the incidents that affected him and Israel and all the kingdoms of the [surrounding] lands.
