1 Chronicles 28-29 (The Daily Walk Bible).

There is an interesting statement here: “they made Solomon the son of David king the second time.” Solomon had been rather hurriedly anointed and installed as king in response to Adonijah’s attempted coup (1 Kings 1:28–40, not mentioned in Chronicles). This second ceremony occurred when his succession was secure and widely acknowledged (1 Chron. 29:24). David himself had been anointed king on three occasions: privately before his family (1 Sam. 16:13), and twice in Hebron (2 Sam. 2:4; 5:3).

It’s amazing to see what happens here when God is at work in the hearts of his people. “They all gave willingly.” God always moves His people to give to His purposes and accomplish His priorities.
