Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 25:5


25:5 The king's seer - He is called the king's seer, either becausethe king took special delight in him; or because he frequently attendedthe king in his palace, executing his sacred office there, while the restwere employed in the tabernacle. In the words - To sing Divine songs aswere inspired by God to the prophets or holy men of God. The horn - Topraise God with the sound of a trumpet or some other musical instrumentmade of horn, which being a martial kind of music, might be most gratefulto David's martial spirit: tho' he was also skilled in other instrumentsof music which he used in the house of God.
