20  And David said to all the congregation: 'Now bless YHWH your God.' And all the congregation blessed the YHWH, the God of their fathers, and bowed down their heads, and prostrated themselves before the LORD, and before the king.

20  Then David instructed the entire assembly: “Bless the Lord our God.” And the entire assembly blessed the Lord, the God of their fathers. And they bowed themselves, and they adored God, and next they reverenced the king.

20  Then David said to all the people of Israel, Now bless the LORD your God. And all the people blessed the LORD God of their fathers, and bowed down and worshipped the LORD, and they also blessed King David.

25  And the Lord magnified Solomon over all Israel, and gave him royal glory, such as was not upon any king before him.
