Originally 120 men
Put together the first singing stint.
No divisions among them,
Singing out to their hearts' content.
T'was Solomon's temple dedication
When the priests put on their presentation.
Filling the room with raised voices
Cymbals and trumpets accompanying their choruses.
When a great cloud descended among them
That sapped the strength of knees to fall on
The praise and glory of God in that kingdom
Was made memorable to all witnesses from then on.
Another group of 120 men of favor
Came together as advised by The Savior.
But instead of any man-made instrument
A mighty wind blew through that upper apartment.
With voices raised in articulations
In foreign languages, giving adulations!
Tourists and natives alike witnessed, smacked-gob
Echoing that foreshadowed time - a heavenly flash mob.
All the Levites who were musicians—Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun and their sons and relatives—stood on the east side of the altar, dressed in fine linen and playing cymbals, harps and lyres. They were accompanied by 120 priests sounding trumpets. 13 The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison togive praise and thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang:
“He is good; his love endures forever.”
Then the temple of the Lord was filled with the cloud, 14 and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the temple of God. 2 Chron 5:12-14
In those days Peter stood up among the believers (a group numbering about a hundred and twenty) Acts 1:15
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. Acts 2:1&2
