1 Chronicles 29:21-28

Context
David Designates Solomon King

29:21 The next day they made sacrifices and offered burnt sacrifices to the Lord (1,000 bulls, 1,000 rams, 1,000 lambs), along with their accompanying drink offerings and many other sacrifices for all Israel. 29:22 They held a feast 1  before the Lord that day and celebrated. 2 

Then they designated Solomon, David’s son, as king a second time; 3  before the Lord they anointed him as ruler and Zadok as priest. 29:23 Solomon sat on the Lord’s throne as king in place of his father David; he was successful and all Israel was loyal to him. 4  29:24 All the officers and warriors, as well as all of King David’s sons, pledged their allegiance to King Solomon. 5  29:25 The Lord greatly magnified Solomon before all Israel and bestowed on him greater majesty than any king of Israel before him. 6 

David’s Reign Comes to an End

29:26 David son of Jesse reigned over all Israel. 29:27 He reigned over Israel forty years; he reigned in Hebron seven years and in Jerusalem 7  thirty-three years. 29:28 He died at a good old age, having enjoyed long life, wealth, and honor. 8  His son Solomon succeeded him.
