First Chronicles 16


16:1 So they brought the ark of God, and set it in the midst of
 the tent that David had pitched for it: and they offered
 burnt-sacrifices and peace-offerings before God.
16:2 And when David had made an end of offering the
 burnt-offerings and the peace-offerings, he blessed the people
 in the name of the LORD.
16:3 And he dealt to every one of Israel, both man and woman, to
 every one a loaf of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a
 flagon [of wine].
16:4 And he appointed [certain] of the Levites to minister
 before the ark of the LORD, and to record, and to thank and
 praise the LORD God of Israel:
16:5 Asaph the chief, and next to him Zechariah, Jeiel, and
 Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Mattithiah, and Eliab, and
 Benaiah, and Obed-edom: and Jeiel with psalteries and with
 harps; but Asaph made a sound with cymbals;
16:6 Benaiah also and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets
 continually before the ark of the covenant of God.
16:7 Then on that day David delivered first [this psalm] to
 thank the LORD into the hand of Asaph and his brethren.
16:8 Give thanks to the LORD, call upon his name, make known his
 deeds among the people.
16:9 Sing to him, sing psalms to him, talk ye of all his
 wonderous works.
16:10 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice
 that seek the LORD.
16:11 Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.
16:12 Remember his wonderful works that he hath done, his
 wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
16:13 O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his
 chosen ones.
16:14 He [is] the LORD our God; his judgments [are] in all the
 earth.
16:15 Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word [which] he
 commanded to a thousand generations;
16:16 [Even of the covenant] which he made with Abraham, and of
 his oath to Isaac;
16:17 And which he confirmed to Jacob for a law, [and] to Israel
 [for] an everlasting covenant,
16:18 Saying, To thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of
 your inheritance;
16:19 When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.
16:20 And [when] they went from nation to nation, and from [one]
 kingdom to another people;
16:21 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved
 kings for their sakes,
16:22 [Saying], Touch not my anointed, and do my prophets no
 harm.
16:23 Sing to the LORD, all the earth; show forth from day to
 day his salvation.
16:24 Declare his glory among the heathen; his wonderful works
 among all nations.
16:25 For great [is] the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he
 also [is] to be feared above all gods.
16:26 For all the gods of the people [are] idols: but the LORD
 made the heavens.
16:27 Glory and honor [are] in his presence; strength and
 gladness [are] in his place.
16:28 Give to the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give to the
 LORD glory and strength.
16:29 Give to the LORD the glory [due] to his name: bring an
 offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty
 of holiness.
16:30 Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be
 stable, that it be not moved.
16:31 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and
 let [men] say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.
16:32 Let the sea roar, and the fullness thereof: let the fields
 rejoice, and all that [is] therein.
16:33 Then shall the trees of the wood sing at the presence of
 the LORD, because he cometh to judge the earth.
16:34 O give thanks to the LORD; for [he is] good; for his mercy
 [endureth] for ever.
16:35 And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us
 together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give
 thanks to thy holy name, [and] glory in thy praise.
16:36 Blessed [be] the LORD God of Israel for ever and ever. And
 all the people said, Amen, and praised the LORD.
16:37 So he left there before the ark of the covenant of the
 LORD Asaph and his brethren, to minister before the ark
 continually, as every day's work required:
16:38 And Obed-edom with their brethren, sixty and eight;
 Obed-edom also the son of Jeduthun and Hosah [to be] porters:
16:39 And Zadok the priest, and his brethren the priests, before
 the tabernacle of the LORD in the high place that [was] at
 Gibeon,
16:40 To offer burnt-offerings to the LORD upon the altar of the
 burnt-offering continually morning and evening, and [to do]
 according to all that is written in the law of the LORD, which
 he commanded Israel;
16:41 And with them Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest that were
 chosen, who were expressed by name, to give thanks to the LORD,
 because his mercy [endureth] for ever;
16:42 And with them Heman and Jeduthun with trumpets and cymbals
 for those that should make a sound, and with musical
 instruments of God. And the sons of Jeduthun [were] porters.
16:43 And all the people departed every man to his house: and
 David returned to bless his house.
