1 Chronicles 16
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)

1So they brought the ark of God and set it in the midst of the tent that David had pitched for it, and they offered burnt sacrifices and peace offerings before God. 2And when David had finished offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD. 3And he dealt to all Israel, both men and women, to each one a loaf of bread and a good piece of flesh and a flagon of wine.

4And he appointed certain of the Levites to minister before the ark of the LORD and to record and to thank and praise the LORD God of Israel: 5Asaph, the chief, and next to him Zechariah, Jeiel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Mattithiah, Eliab, Benaiah, Obededom: and Jeiel with psalteries and with harps, but Asaph resounded with cymbals; 6and Benaiah and Jahaziel, the priests, with trumpets continually before the ark of the covenant of God.

7Then, on that day, David began to thank the LORD by the hand of Asaph and his brethren.

8Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.

9Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, speak of all his wondrous works.

10Glory in his holy name; let the heart of those that seek the LORD rejoice.

11Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.

12Remember his marvellous works that he has done, his wonders and the judgments of his mouth;

13O, ye seed of Israel, his slave, ye sons of Jacob, his chosen ones.

14He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.

15Be mindful always of his covenant, the word which he commanded in a thousand generations,

16the covenant which he cut with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;

17which he confirmed unto Jacob by statute, and to Israel in everlasting covenant,

18saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the cord of your inheritance,

19when ye were but few in number, and strangers in it.

20And they went from nation to nation and from one kingdom to another people.

21He would allow no one to oppress them; he reproved kings for their sakes,

22saying, Touch not my anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

23Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; show forth from day to day his saving health.

24Declare his glory among the Gentiles; his marvellous works among all peoples.

25For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; he also is to be feared above all gods.

26For all the gods of the people are worthless, but the LORD made the heavens.

27Glory and beauty are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.

28Give unto the LORD, ye families of the peoples, give unto the LORD glory and strength.

29Give unto the LORD the glory of his name; bring a present and come before him; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

30Fear before him, all the earth; the world also is being made stable, that it be not moved.

31Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; and let men say among the Gentiles, The LORD reigns.

32Let the sea roar, and the fullness thereof; let the fields rejoice, and all that is therein.

33Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the LORD, because he comes to judge the earth.

34O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good; for his mercy is eternal.

35And say, Save us, O God our saving health, and gather us together and deliver us from the Gentiles, that we may give thanks to thy holy name and glory in thy praise.

36Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from eternity unto eternity. And all the people said, Amen and praised the LORD.

37So he left there before the ark of the covenant of the LORD Asaph and his brethren to minister before the ark continually, each thing in its day; 38and Obededom with their brethren, sixty-eight; Obededom also the son of Jeduthun and Hosah to be porters. 39And Zadok, the priest, and his brethren, the priests, before the tabernacle of the LORD in the high place that was at Gibeon, 40to offer burnt offerings unto the LORD upon the altar of the burnt offering continually morning and evening, according to all that is written in the law of the LORD, which he commanded Israel; 41and with them Heman and Jeduthun and the rest that were chosen expressly by name, to give thanks to the LORD, because his mercy is eternal. 42And with them Heman and Jeduthun with trumpets and cymbals to sound, and with other musical instruments of God. And the sons of Jeduthun were porters.

43And all the people departed each one to his house; and David returned to bless his house.
