1 Chronicles 16

CLV(i) 1 And they bring in the ark of Elohim, and set it up in the midst of the tent that David has stretched out for it, and they bring near burnt-offerings and peace-offerings before Elohim;" 2 and David ceases from offering the burnt-offering and the peace-offerings, and blesses the people in the name of Yahweh, 3 and gives a portion to every man of Israel, both man and woman:to each a cake of bread, and a measure of wine, and a grape-cake. 4 And he puts before the ark of Yahweh, of the Levites, ministers, even to make mention of, and to thank, and to give praise to Yahweh, Elohim of Israel, 5 Asaph the head, and his second Zechariah; Jeiel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Mattithiah, and Eliab, and Benaiah, and Obed-Edom, and Jeiel, with instruments of psalteries, and with harps; and Asaph with cymbals is sounding;" 6 and Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests [are] with trumpets continually before the ark of the covenant of Elohim. 7 On that day then has David given at the beginning to give thanks to Yahweh by the hand of Asaph and his brethren:-- 8 Give thanks to Yahweh, call in His name, Make known among the peoples His doings. 9 Sing you to Him, sing psalms to Him, Meditate on all His wonders. 10 Boast yourselves in His holy name, Rejoice does the heart of those seeking Yahweh. 11 Seek you Yahweh and His strength, Seek His face continually. 12 Remember His wonders that He did, His signs, and the judgments of His mouth, 13 O seed of Israel, His servant, O sons of Jacob, His chosen ones!" 14 He [is] Yahweh our Elohim, In all the earth [are] His judgments. 15 Remember you to the eon His covenant, The word He commanded--To a thousand generations, 16 Which He has made with Abraham, And His oath--to Isaac, 17 And He establishes it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel--a covenant eonian. 18 Saying:To you I give the land of Canaan, The portion of your inheritance, 19 When you are few of number, As a little thing, and sojourners in it. 20 And they go up and down, From nation unto nation, And from a kingdom unto another people. 21 He has not suffered any to oppress them, And reproves on their account kings. 22 Come not against Mine anointed ones, And against My prophets do not evil. 23 Sing to Yahweh, all the earth, Proclaim from day unto day His salvation. 24 Rehearse among nations His glory, Among all the peoples His wonders. 25 For great [is] Yahweh, and praised greatly, And fearful He [is] above all elohims. 26 For all elohims of the peoples [are] nought, And Yahweh the heavens has made. 27 Honor and majesty [are] before Him, Strength and joy [are] in His place. 28 Ascribe to Yahweh, you families of peoples, Ascribe to Yahweh honor and strength. 29 Ascribe to Yahweh the honor of His name, Lift up a present, and come before Him. Bow yourselves to Yahweh, In the beauty of holiness. 30 Be pained before Him, all the earth. 31 Also, established is the world, It is not moved! The heavens rejoice, and the earth is glad, And they say among nations:Yahweh has reigned. 32 Roar does the sea, and its fulness, Exult does the field, and all that [is] in it, 33 Then sing do trees of the forest, From the presence of Yahweh, For He has come to judge the earth!" 34 Give thanks to Yahweh, for good, For to the eon, [is] His kindness, 35 And say, Save us, O Elohim of our salvation, And gather us, and deliver us from the nations, To give thanks to Your holy name, To triumph in Your praise. 36 Blessed [is] Yahweh, Elohim of Israel, From the eon and unto the eon;' And all the people say, `Amen,' and have given praise to Yahweh. 37 And he leaves there before the ark of the covenant of Yahweh, for Asaph and for his brethren, to minister before the ark continually, according to the matter of a day in its day, 38 both Obed-Edom and their brethren, sixty and eight, and Obed-Edom son of Jeduthun, and Hosah for gatekeepers, 39 and Zadok the priest, and his brethren the priests, before the tabernacle of Yahweh, in a high place that [is] in Gibeon, 40 to cause to ascend burnt-offerings to Yahweh, on the altar of burnt-offering continually, morning and evening, and for all that is written in the law of Yahweh, that He charged on Israel. 41 And with them [are] Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest of those chosen, who were defined by name, to give thanks to Yahweh, for to the eon [is] His kindness, 42 and with them--Heman and Jeduthun--[are] trumpets and cymbals for those sounding, and instruments of the song of Elohim, and the sons of Jeduthun [are] at the gate. 43 And all the people go, each to his house, and David turns round to bless his house.
