Psalm 96:1-7
1O sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth! 2Sing to the Lord, bless (affectionately praise) His Name; show forth His salvation from day to day. 3Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works among all the peoples. 4For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; He is to be reverently feared and worshiped above all [so-called] gods. 5For all the gods of the nations are [lifeless] idols, but the Lord made the heavens. 6Honor and majesty are before Him; strength and beauty are in His sanctuary. 7Ascribe to the Lord, O you families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

Psalm 97:1-6
1The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles and coastlands be glad! 2Clouds and darkness are round about Him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. 3Fire goes before Him and burns up His adversaries round about. 4His lightnings illumine the world; the earth sees and trembles. 5The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. 6The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory.

1 Chronicles 16:27-29
27 Honor and majesty are [found] in His [God’s] presence; strength and joy are [found] in His sanctuary. 28 Ascribe to the Lord, you families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength, 29 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name. Bring an offering and come before Him; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness and in holy array.

2 Chronicles 1:7-12
7 That night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, Ask what I shall give you. 8 And Solomon said to God, You have shown great mercy and loving-kindness to David my father and have made me king in his place. 9 Now, O Lord God, let Your promise to David my father be fulfilled, for you have made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude. 10 Give me now wisdom and knowledge to go out and come in before this people, for who can rule this Your people who are so great? 11 God replied to Solomon, Because this was in your heart and you have not asked for riches, possessions, honor, and glory, or the life of your foes, or even for long life, but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may rule and judge My people over whom I have made you king, 12 Wisdom and knowledge are granted you. And I will give you riches, possessions, honor, and glory, such as none of the kings had before you, and none after you shall have their equal.

1 Chronicles 29:11-14
11[Solomon said] Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and the earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and Yours it is to be exalted as Head over all. 12Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hands are power and might; in Your hands it is to make great and to give strength to all. 13Now therefore, our God, we thank You and praise Your glorious name and those attributes which that name denotes. 14But who am I, and what are my people, that we should retain strength and be able to offer thus so willingly? For all things come from You, and out of Your own [hand] we have given You.

Because of the true story in the Bible in 2 Chronicles 1:7-12, Solomon was quite aware that wisdom, power, riches, honor, majesty, and strength were all gifts from God. Solomon was eager to tell his people that God alone is able to provide these things.

Solomon realized that his position as king was also God-given.

In 1 Chronicles 29:11-14, King Solomon honors God for His glory and majesty and acknowledges that he and his people are only able to give gifts to God because God first gave the gifts to them.

1 Chronicles 29:14 is similar to 1 John 4:19: “We love God because He first loved us.”

Take a moment to compare these concepts.

1 John 4:19
19 We love Him [God], because He first loved us.
