Psalm of Thanksgiving
8Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name;
9Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
10Glory in His holy name;
11Seek the LORD and His strength;
12Remember His wonderful deeds which He has done,
13O seed of Israel His servant,
14He is the LORD our God;
15Remember His covenant forever,
16The covenant which He made with Abraham,
17He also confirmed it to Jacob for a statute,
18Saying, To you I will give the land of Canaan,
19When they were only a few in number,
20And they wandered about from nation to nation,
21He permitted no man to oppress them,
22Do not touch My anointed ones,
23Sing to the LORD, all the earth;
24Tell of His glory among the nations,
25For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
26For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
27Splendor and majesty are before Him,
28Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples,
29Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name;
30Tremble before Him, all the earth;
31Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
32Let the sea roar, and all it contains;
33Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the LORD;
34O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
35Then say, Save us, O God of our salvation,
36Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel,
Worship before the Ark
37So he left Asaph and his relatives there before the ark of the covenant of the LORD to minister before the ark continually, as every days work required; 38and Obed-edom with his 68 relatives; Obed-edom, also the son of Jeduthun, and Hosah as gatekeepers. 39He left Zadok the priest and his relatives the priests before the tabernacle of the LORD in the high place which was at Gibeon, 40to offer burnt offerings to the LORD on the altar of burnt offering continually morning and evening, even according to all that is written in the law of the LORD, which He commanded Israel. 41With them were Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest who were chosen, who were designated by name, to give thanks to the LORD, because His lovingkindness is everlasting. 42And with them were 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 for the gate.
43Then all the people departed each to his house, and David returned to bless his household.
