Daily Bible Verse - 11/24/2007 - 1 Chronicles 29:13

NIV Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name.
KJV Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.
NASB Now therefore, our God, we thank You, and praise Your glorious name.
1 Chronicles 29:13

David responds to the phenomenal offering expressing amazing sacrifices of wealth with praise in which he acknowledges that all things belong to and come from God. He concludes that God is everything and that man is nothing, much like Ps. 8. This magnificent prayer of thanks gives God all credit, even for the people's generosity (v. 14).

Did you know?
Like the books of Samuel and Kings, the two volumes of Chronicles were originally one book, later separated so each could fit onto a single scroll.
Chronicles was probably written in the early 400s b.c., roughly a hundred years after many of the Jews returned home from exile and rebuilt the temple.
