1 Chronicles 161And 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. 2And when David had made an end of offering the burnt offering and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of Jehovah. 3And 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. 4And 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: 5Asaph 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, 6and Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets continually, before the ark of the covenant of God. 7Then on that day David first ordained to give thanks to Jehovah by the hand of Asaph and his brothers. 8O give thanks to Jehovah. Call upon his name. Make known his doings among the peoples. 9Sing to him. Sing praises to him. Talk ye of all his marvelous works. 10Glory ye in his holy name. Let the heart of those who seek Jehovah rejoice. 11Seek ye Jehovah and his strength. Seek his face evermore. 12Remember his marvelous works that he has done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth, 13O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye sons of Jacob, his chosen ones. 14He is Jehovah our God. His judgments are in all the earth. 15Remember his covenant forever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations, 16the covenant which he made with Abraham, and his oath to Isaac, 17and confirmed the same to Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant, 18saying, To thee I will give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance, 19when ye were but a few men in number, yea, very few, and sojourners in it, 20and they went about from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people. 21He allowed no man to do them wrong. Yea, he reproved kings for their sakes, 22saying, Touch not my anointed ones, and do my prophets no harm. 23Sing to Jehovah, all the earth. Show forth his salvation from day to day. 24Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples. 25For great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised. He also is to be feared above all gods. 26For all the gods of the peoples are idols. But Jehovah made the heavens. 27Honor and majesty are before him. Strength and gladness are in his place. 28Ascribe to Jehovah, ye kindred of the peoples. Ascribe to Jehovah glory and strength. 29Ascribe to Jehovah the glory due to his name. Bring an offering, and come before him. Worship Jehovah in holy array. 30Tremble before him, all the earth. The world also is established that it cannot be moved. 31Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice. And let them say among the nations, Jehovah reigns. 32Let the sea roar, and the fullness of it. Let the field exult, and all that is therein. 33Then shall the trees of the wood sing for joy before Jehovah, for he comes to judge the earth. 34O give thanks to Jehovah, for he is good, for his loving kindness is forever. 35And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation. And gather us together and deliver us from the nations, to give thanks to thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise. 36Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Israel, from everlasting even to everlasting. And all the people said, Truly, and praised Jehovah. 37So 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, 38and Obed-edom with their sixty-eight brothers. And Obed-edom the son of Jeduthun and Hosah were to be porters, 39and Zadok the priest, and his brothers the priests, before the tabernacle of Jehovah in the high place that was at Gibeon, 40to 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. 41And 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 forever. 42And 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. 43And all the people departed every man to his house. And David returned to bless his house.
