Musicians were Sought Out!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for another beautiful day. Thank you for displaying your majesty everywhere around me as I go outside today. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And at the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem they sought the Levites out of all their places, to bring them to Jerusalem, to keep the dedication with gladness, both with thanksgivings, and with singing, with cymbals, psalteries, and with harps. (Nehemiah 12:27)

Lord, here I am again. I am here to begin another prayer for your daughter you love! Today I ask that you let her be sought out to sing praises to you on her violin, just as they sought out good musicians thousands of years ago when scripture says “they sought the Levites out” to include music with the gladness of the day. I ask that you open doors for Lindsey to do just that … to bring gladness into our days now. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

ESV:
And at the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem they sought the Levites in all their places, to bring them to Jerusalem to celebrate the dedication with gladness, with thanksgivings and with singing, with cymbals, harps, and lyres.

NET:
At the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem, they sought out the Levites from all the places they lived to bring them to Jerusalem to celebrate the dedication joyfully with songs of thanksgiving and songs accompanied by cymbals, harps, and lyres.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
