2 Chronicles 5:12-14

2 Chronicles 5:12-14 NIV

All the Levites who were musicians—Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun and their sons and relatives—stood on the east side of the altar, dressed in fine linen and playing cymbals, harps and lyres. They were accompanied by 120 priests sounding trumpets. The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the lord and sang: "He is good; his love endures forever." Then the temple of the lord was filled with the cloud, and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the lord filled the temple of God.

Psalm 8

Psalm 8:1-9 NIV

lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet: all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild, the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
