1 Chronicles 16
A Tent for the Ark1And they brought in the ark of God and a placed it inside the tent which David had pitched for it, and they offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before God. 2When David had finished offering the burnt offering and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord. 3He distributed to everyone of Israel, both man and woman, to everyone a loaf of bread and a portion of meat and a raisin cake. 4He appointed some of the Levites as ministers before the ark of the Lord, even to celebrate and to thank and praise the Lord God of Israel: 5Asaph the chief, and second to him Zechariah, then ▼

Psalm of Thanksgiving8 f Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name;
g Make known His deeds among the peoples.
9Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
▼ Or Meditate onSpeak of all His ▼
▼ I.e. wonderful actswonders.
▼ Or BoastGlory in His holy name;
Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad.
11 k Seek the Lord and His strength;
Seek His face continually.
12 l Remember His wonderful deeds which He has done,
m His marvels and the judgments from His mouth,
13O seed of Israel His servant,
Sons of Jacob, His chosen ones!
14He is the Lord our God;
n His judgments are in all the earth.
15Remember His covenant forever,
The word which He commanded to a thousand generations,
16 o The covenant which He made with Abraham,
And His oath to Isaac.
17 p He also confirmed it to Jacob for a statute,
To Israel as an everlasting covenant,
18Saying q “To you I will give the land of Canaan,
As the portion of your inheritance.”
19 r When they were only a few in number,
Very few, and strangers in it,
20And they wandered about from nation to nation,
And from one kingdom to another people,
21He permitted no man to oppress them,
And s He reproved kings for their sakes, saying,
22“Do not touch My anointed ones,
And t do My prophets no harm.”
23 u Sing to the Lord, all the earth;
Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day.
24Tell of His glory among the nations,
His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.
25For v great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
He also is w to be feared above all gods.
26For all the gods of the peoples are ▼
▼ Or non-existent things, y idols,
z But the Lord made the heavens.
27Splendor and majesty are before Him,
Strength and joy are in His place.
28Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
Ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
29Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name;
Bring an ▼
▼ Or a grain offeringoffering, and come before Him;
ab Worship the Lord in ▼
▼ Or the splendor of holinessholy array.
30Tremble before Him, all the earth;
Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved.
31 ad Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
And let them say among the nations ae “The Lord reigns.”
32 af Let the sea ▼
▼ Or thunderroar, and ▼
▼ Lit its fullnessall it contains;
Let the field exult, and all that is in it.
33Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the Lord;
For He is coming to judge the earth.
34 ai O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
35 aj Then say, “Save us, O God of our salvation,
And gather us and deliver us from the nations,
To give thanks to Your holy name,
▼ Lit boastglory in Your praise.”
36 al Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
From everlasting even to everlasting.
Then all the people am said, “Amen,” and praised the Lord.
