1 Chronicles 16

MLV(i) 1 And they brought in the ark of God and set it in the midst of the tent that David had pitched for it. And they offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before God. 2 And when David had made an end of offering the burnt offering and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of Jehovah. 3 And he dealt to every one of Israel, both man and woman, to every one a loaf of bread and a portion of flesh and a cake of raisins.
4 And he appointed certain of the Levites to minister before the ark of Jehovah and to celebrate and to thank and praise Jehovah, the God of Israel: 5 Asaph the chief and second to him Zechariah, Jeiel and Shemiramoth and Jehiel and Mattithiah and Eliab and Benaiah and Obed-edom and Jeiel, with psalteries and with harps and Asaph with cymbals, sounding-aloud, 6 and Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets continually, before the ark of the covenant of God.
7 Then on that day David first placed by the hand of Asaph and his brothers to give thanks to Jehovah.
8 O give thanks to Jehovah. Call upon his name. Make known his practices among the peoples. 9 Sing to him. Sing praises to him. Talk of all his marvelous works. 10 Glory in his holy name. Let the heart of those who seek Jehovah rejoice.
11 Seek Jehovah and his strength. Seek his face continually. 12 Remember his marvelous works that he has done, his wonders and the judgments of his mouth, 13 O you* seed of Israel his servant, you* sons of Jacob, his chosen ones. 14 He is Jehovah our God. His judgments are in all the earth.
15 Remember his everlasting covenant, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations, 16 the covenant which he made with Abraham and his oath to Isaac, 17 and confirmed the same to Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant, 18 saying, To you I will give the land of Canaan, the lot of your* inheritance, 19 when you* were but a few men in number, yes, very few and travelers in it, 20 and they went about from nation to nation and from one kingdom to another people.
21 He allowed no man to do them wrong. Yes, he reproved kings for their sakes, 22 saying, Touch not my anointed ones and do my prophets no harm.
23 Sing to Jehovah, all the earth. Show forth his salvation from day to day. 24 Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples. 25 For great is Jehovah and greatly to be praised. He also is to be feared above all gods. 26 For all the gods of the peoples are idols. But Jehovah made the heavens. 27 Honor and majesty are before him. Strength and gladness are in his place.
28 Give to Jehovah, you* kindred of the peoples. Give to Jehovah glory and strength. 29 Give to Jehovah the glory due to his name. Bring an offering and come before him. Worship Jehovah in holy array.
30 Tremble before him, all the earth. The world also is established that it cannot be shaken. 31 Let the heavens be glad and let the earth rejoice. And let them say among the nations, Jehovah reigns. 32 Let the sea roar and the fullness of it. Let the field rejoice and all that is in it. 33 Then will the trees of the wood sing for joy before Jehovah, for he comes to judge the earth.
34 O give thanks to Jehovah, for he is good, for his loving kindness is everlasting. 35 And say you*, Save us, O God of our salvation. And gather us together and deliver us from the nations, to give thanks to your holy name and to triumph in your praise. 36 Praise Jehovah, the God of Israel, from everlasting even to everlasting.
And all the people said, Truly and praised Jehovah.
37 So he left there, before the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, Asaph and his brothers, to minister before the ark continually, as every day's work required, 38 and Obed-edom with their sixty-eight brothers. And Obed-edom the son of Jeduthun and Hosah were to be gatekeepers, 39 and Zadok the priest and his brothers the priests, before the tabernacle of Jehovah in the high place that was at Gibeon, 40 to offer burnt offerings to Jehovah upon the altar of burnt offering continually morning and evening, even according to all that is written in the law of Jehovah, which he commanded to Israel.
41 And with them Heman and Jeduthun and the rest that were chosen, who were mentioned by name, to give thanks to Jehovah because his loving kindness is everlasting. 42 And with them Heman and Jeduthun with trumpets and cymbals for those who should sound-aloud and with instruments for the songs of God and the sons of Jeduthun to be at the gate. 43 And all the people departed every man to his house. And David returned to bless his house.
