I Chronicles 16 (asv)

16:1And 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. 16:2And when David had made an end of offering the burnt-offering and the peace-offerings, he blessed the people in the name of Jehovah. 16:3And 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.

16:4And 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: 16:5Asaph 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; 16:6and Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets continually, before the ark of the covenant of God.

16:7Then on that day did David first ordain to give thanks unto Jehovah, by the hand of Asaph and his brethren.

16:8O give thanks unto Jehovah, call upon his name;

Make known his doings among the peoples.

16:9Sing unto him, sing praises unto him;

Talk ye of all his marvellous works.

16:10Glory ye in his holy name;

Let the heart of them rejoice that seek Jehovah.

16:11Seek ye Jehovah and his strength;

Seek his face evermore.

16:12Remember his marvellous works that he hath done,

His wonders, and the judgments of his mouth,

16:13O ye seed of Israel his servant,

Ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.

16:14He is Jehovah our God;

His judgments are in all the earth.

16:15Remember his covenant for ever,

The word which he commanded to a thousand generations,

16:16The covenant which he made with Abraham,

And his oath unto Isaac,

16:17And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a statute,

To Israel for an everlasting covenant,

16:18Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan,

The lot of your inheritance;

16:19When ye were but a few men in number,

Yea, very few, and sojourners in it;

16:20And they went about from nation to nation,

And from one kingdom to another people.

16:21He suffered no man to do them wrong;

Yea, he reproved kings for their sakes,

16:22Saying, Touch not mine anointed ones,

And do my prophets no harm.

16:23Sing unto Jehovah, all the earth;

Show forth his salvation from day to day.

16:24Declare his glory among the nations,

His marvellous works among all the peoples.

16:25For great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised:

He also is to be feared above all gods.

16:26For all the gods of the peoples are idols:

But Jehovah made the heavens.

16:27Honor and majesty are before him:

Strength and gladness are in his place.

16:28Ascribe unto Jehovah, ye kindreds of the peoples,

Ascribe unto Jehovah glory and strength;

16:29Ascribe unto Jehovah the glory due unto his name:

Bring an offering, and come before him:

Worship Jehovah in holy array.

16:30Tremble before him, all the earth:

The world also is established that it cannot be moved.

16:31Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;

And let them say among the nations, Jehovah reigneth.

16:32Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof;

Let the field exult, and all that is therein;

16:33Then shall the trees of the wood sing for joy before Jehovah;

For he cometh to judge the earth.

16:34O give thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good;

For his lovingkindness endureth for ever.

16:35And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation,

And gather us together and deliver us from the nations,

To give thanks unto thy holy name,

And to triumph in thy praise.

16:36Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Israel,

From everlasting even to everlasting.

And all the people said, Amen, and praised Jehovah.

16:37So he left there, before the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, Asaph and his brethren, to minister before the ark continually, as every day's work required; 16:38and Obed-edom with their brethren, threescore and eight; Obed-edom also the son of Jeduthun and Hosah to be doorkeepers; 16:39and Zadok the priest, and his brethren the priests, before the tabernacle of Jehovah in the high place that was at Gibeon, 16:40to offer burnt-offerings unto 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 unto Israel; 16:41and with them Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest that were chosen, who were mentioned by name, to give thanks to Jehovah, because his lovingkindness endureth for ever; 16:42and with them Heman and Jeduthun with trumpets and cymbals for those that should sound aloud, and with instruments for the songs of God; and the sons of Jeduthun to be at the gate. 16:43And all the people departed every man to his house: and David returned to bless his house.
