1 Chronicles 16

VIN(i) 1 And they brought the ark of God and set it inside the tent that David had pitched for it. And they offered burnt offerings and fellowship offerings before God. 2 After David had finished sacrificing the burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD 3 And he gave to everyone, every man and woman of Israel, a cake of bread, some meat, and a cake of dry grapes. 4 Then he appointed some of the Levites as ministers before the ark of the LORD, to invoke, thank, and praise the LORD the God of Israel. 5 Asaph was the head. Zechariah was second, then Jeiel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Mattithiah, Eliab, Benaiah, Obed Edom, and Jeiel with harps and lyres. Asaph played the cymbals. 6 And Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests blew on the trumpets continually before the ark of the covenant of God. 7 Then on that day David first gave by the hand of Asaph and his brothers to give thanks to the LORD. 8 Give thanks to the LORD. Call on his name. Make known among the nations what he has done. 9 Sing to him; sing praises to him; tell of his wondrous works! 10 Glory in his holy name. Let the heart of those who seek the LORD rejoice. 11 Seek ye the LORD and his strength, seek his face always. 12 Remember his wonders! what he did; his miracles and the judgments of his mouth. 13 O seed of Israel, His servant, O sons of Jacob, His chosen ones! 14 He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth. 15 Remember his covenant forever, the word he commanded for a thousand generations, 16 the covenant that he made with Abraham, and the oath he swore to Isaac. 17 He confirmed it to Jacob for an ordinance, to Israel as an everlasting covenant, 18 'To thee I will give the land of Canaan, to be the portion of your inheritance.' 19 when ye were but few in number, and strangers in it. 20 They wandered from nation to nation and from one kingdom to another. 21 He suffered no man to do them wrong, yea, for their sake He reproved kings: 22 "Do not touch my anointed ones. Do my prophets no harm." 23 Sing to the LORD, all the earth, proclaim His salvation from day to day. 24 Declare his glory among the nations; his marvelous works among all peoples. 25 For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods. 26 For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens. 27 Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his place. 28 Ascribe to the LORD, O clans of the nations, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength! 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. 30 Tremble before him, all the earth: The world also is established, it shall not be moved. 31 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; And let them say among the nations, the LORD reigneth! 32 Let the sea roar, and the fullness of it; let the fields rejoice, and all in them. 33 Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. 34 Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His mercy endures forever. 35 And say, O save us, God of our salvation; and gather us, and deliver us from the nations, that we may give thanks to Your holy name, that we may glory in Your praise. 36 Blessed be the LORD the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting!" Then all the people said, "Amen!" and praised the LORD. 37 So he left Asaph and his brothers there before the ark of the covenant of the LORD to minister before the ark regularly as each day required, 38 and he left Obed-Edom with his sixty-eight brothers. And Obed-Edom, the son of Jeduthun, and Hosah were gatekeepers. 39 And he left Zadok the priest and his brothers the priests before the tabernacle of the LORD in the high place at Gibeon, 40 to offer up burnt-offerings to the LORD on the altar of burnt-offering continually, morning and evening, and according to all that is written in the law of the LORD, which he commanded Israel; 41 With them were Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest who were chosen, who were mentioned by name, to give thanks to the LORD, because His grace endures forever; 42 and with them Heman and Jeduthun with trumpets and cymbals for those making a sound, and instruments of the song of God; and the sons of Jeduthun were at the gate. 43 Then all the people went each to his house, and David turned to bless his household.
