4 Then Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and Chenani stood on the 2stairs of the Levites and cried out with a loud voice to the Lord their God. 5 And the Levites, Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabniah, Sherebiah, Hodijah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah, said:
“Stand up and bless the Lord your God
Forever and ever!
“Blessed be fYour glorious name,
Which is exalted above all blessing and praise!
6 gYou alone are the Lord;
hYou have made heaven,
The earth and everything on it,
The seas and all that is in them,
And You kpreserve them all.
The host of heaven worships You.
Who chose lAbram,
And brought him out of Ur of the Chaldeans,
And gave him the name mAbraham;
8 You found his heart nfaithful before You,
And made a ocovenant with him
To give the land of the Canaanites,
The Hittites, the Amorites,
The Perizzites, the Jebusites,
And the Girgashites—
To give it to his descendants.
You phave performed Your words,
For You are righteous.
