Who do you worship?

I never noticed the apparent connection between 2 Chronicles 7:6 and Daniel 3:7.

2 Chron 7:6
And the priests attended to their services; the Levites also with instruments of the music of the Lord, which King David had made to praise the Lord, saying, "For His mercy endures forever," whenever David offered praise by their ministry. The priests sounded trumpets opposite them, while all Israel stood.

Dan 3:7
when all the people heard the sound of the horn, flute, harp, and lyre, in symphony with all kinds of music, all the people, nations, and languages fell down and worshiped the gold image which King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.

The literary connection reminds us and Daniel of true worship in Jerusalem, and how this is false, counterfeit, idolatrous worship, but with the same "worship style."
