When God created the world, a chorus of angels sang for Him. God asked Job if he was around to observe the magnificence of creation, “while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy” (Job 38:7).
The Bible shows us that God loves all of humankind to sing to Him - choirs feature in the Bible’s own description of divine worship. The first organised choirs in Scripture can be found during King David’s time, as recorded in the Books of Chronicles. 1 Chronicles tells of how King David appointed no less than four thousand Levites as singers and musicians.
These singers and musicians ministered day and night in the tabernacle and later in the temple - these were some of the first earthly choirs assigned to serve God through song. Choirs, with both men and women singers (Nehemiah 7:67; 2 Chronicles 35:25), were organised for worship in the temple and were placed under the direction of able musicians (1 Chronicles 25).
