1 Chronicles 16:7–36
8 Give thanks to Yahweh; call upon his name;
make known his deeds among the nations!
tell of all his wondrous works!
let the hearts of those seeking Yahweh rejoice!
seek his face continually!
his wonders and the judgments of his mouth,
O sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!
his judgments are in all the earth.
the word he commanded for a thousand generations,
16 that he ⌊made⌋a with Abraham,
his sworn oath to Isaac.
an everlasting covenant to Israel,
the portion of your inheritance.”
19 When you were few in number, ⌊very few⌋,b
and sojourners in it,
and from one kingdom to another people,
and he rebuked kings on their account,
nor do harm to my prophets!”
Proclaim his salvation from day to day!
his wondrous works among all the peoples!
and he is feared among all gods.
but Yahweh made the heavens.
strength and joy are in his place.
ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength!
Lift up an offering and come before him!
Bow down to Yahweh in the splendor of holiness!
surely the world is established; it shall not be shaken.
and let them tell the peoples, “Yahweh reigns!”
let the field rejoice and all that is in it.
for he comes to judge the earth.
his loyal love is everlasting.
gather us and rescue us from the nations
that we may give thanks to your holy name
and glory in your praise.
from everlasting to everlasting!”
Then all the people said, “Amen!” and praised Yahweh.
