16 So athey brought the ark of God, and set it in the midst of the tabernacle that David had erected for it. Then they offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before God. 2 And when David had finished offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, bhe blessed the people in the name of the Lord. 3 Then he distributed to everyone of Israel, both man and woman, to everyone a loaf of bread, a piece of meat, and a cake of raisins.
4 And he appointed some of the Levites to minister before the ark of the Lord, to ccommemorate, to thank, and to praise the Lord God of Israel: 5 Asaph the chief, and next to him Zechariah, then dJeiel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Mattithiah, Eliab, Benaiah, and Obed-Edom: Jeiel with stringed instruments and harps, but Asaph made music with cymbals; 6 Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests regularly blew the trumpets before the ark of the covenant of God.
8 gOh, give thanks to the Lord!
Call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples!
Talk of all His wondrous works!
Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord!
Seek His face evermore!
His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth,
You children of Jacob, His chosen ones!
His hjudgments are in all the earth.
The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations,
16 The icovenant which He made with Abraham,
And His oath to Isaac,
To Israel for an everlasting covenant,
As the allotment of your inheritance,”
19 When you were lfew in number,
Indeed very few, and strangers in it.
And from one kingdom to another people,
Yes, He mrebuked kings for their sakes,
22 Saying, n“Do not touch My anointed ones,
And do My prophets no harm.”
23 oSing to the Lord, all the earth;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
His wonders among all peoples.
He is also to be feared above all gods.
But the Lord made the heavens.
Strength and gladness are in His place.
Give to the Lord glory and strength.
Bring an offering, and come before Him.
Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!
The world also is firmly established,
It shall not be moved.
And let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.”
Let the field rejoice, and all that is in it.
33 Then the qtrees of the woods shall rejoice before the Lord,
For He is rcoming to judge the earth.
34 sOh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
35 tAnd say, “Save us, O God of our salvation;
Gather us together, and deliver us from the Gentiles,
To give thanks to Your holy name,
To triumph in Your praise.”
36 uBlessed be the Lord God of Israel
From everlasting to everlasting!
And all vthe people said, “Amen!” and praised the Lord.
