Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 15:21


15:21 To excel - Which word may be added to note the excellency of thatinstrument, or part of musick; or that there was a greater extension orelevation of the voice than in the former. This way of praising God bymusical instruments, had not hitherto been in use. But David institutedit by divine direction, and added it to the other ordinances of thatdispensation.
