1 Chronicles 29:20 Meaning and Commentary

1 Chronicles 29:20

And David said to all the congregation
Consisting of princes, captains, and officers, ( 1 Chronicles 28:1 )

now bless the Lord your God;
as he had done, for putting it into the power of their hands, and into their hearts, to do what they had:

and all the congregation blessed the Lord God of their fathers;
some one as the mouth of the rest put up a thanksgiving to God, as David directed, to which they all assented, and in which they all joined:

and bowed down their heads, and worshipped the Lord and the king;
the one with religious worship, the other with civil; the Syriac and Arabic versions more plainly distinguish, "they worshipped the Lord, and blessed David the king"; though some think Solomon, now made king, is meant.
