Solomon sat on the throne of the Lord.--Comp. 1Chronicles 28:5.

As king instead of David his father.--It is not meant that David abdicated. 1Chronicles 29:23-25 are anticipative of the history of Solomon's reign. At the same time, their introduction here is natural, not only as relating the immediate sequel of Solomon's coronation, but also as showing how David's last wishes in regard to his son were realised.

Verse 23. - For the happy expression, the throne of the Lord, see 1 Chronicles 28:5. And for evidence that Solomon did really exercise royal authority before David's death, see 1 Kings 1:32, 45-48; 1 Kings 2:1. 29:20-25 This great assembly joined with David in adoring God. Whoever is the mouth of the congregation, those only have the benefit who join him, not by bowing down the head, so much as by lifting up the soul. Solomon sat on the throne of the Lord. Solomon's kingdom typified the kingdom of the Messiah, whose throne is the throne of the Lord.
