With trumpets.--Clarions, or straight trumpets.

Continually.--The Hebrew term is a special one, denoting at fixed and regularly recurring services.

Verse 6. - Jahaziel. Probably the Eliezer, who in 1 Chronicles 15:24 is coupled as priest with Benaiah, should stand in the place of this name or else vice versa.
