1 Chronicles Chapter 16 (Index)

Chapters: 1





























001  So 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.

002  And when David had made an end of offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD.

003  And he dealt to every one of Israel, both man and woman, to every one a loaf of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine.

004  And 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:

005  Asaph the chief, and next to him Zechariah, Jeiel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Mattithiah, and Eliab, and Benaiah, and Obededom: and Jeiel with psalteries and with harps; but Asaph made a sound with cymbals;

006  Benaiah also and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets continually before the ark of the covenant of God.

007  Then on that day David delivered first this psalm to thank the LORD into the hand of Asaph and his brethren.

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

009  Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works.

010  Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

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

012  Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

013  O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.

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

015  Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations;

016  Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;

017  And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,

018  Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;

019  When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.

020  And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people;

021  He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes,

022  Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

023  Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; show forth from day to day his salvation.

024  Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations.

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

026  For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.

027  Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.

028  Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.

029  Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

030  Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.

031  Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.

032  Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: let the fields rejoice, and all that is therein.

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

034  O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

035  And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.

036  Blessed be the LORD God of Israel for ever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised the LORD.

037  So he left there before the ark of the covenant of the LORD Asaph and his brethren, to minister before the ark continually, as every day's work required:

038  And Obededom with their brethren, threescore and eight; Obededom also the son of Jeduthun and Hosah to be porters:

039  And Zadok the priest, and his brethren the priests, before the tabernacle of the LORD in the high place that was at Gibeon,

040  To offer burnt offerings unto the LORD upon the altar of the burnt offering continually morning and evening, and to do according to all that is written in the law of the LORD, which he commanded Israel;

041  And with them Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest that were chosen, who were expressed by name, to give thanks to the LORD, because his mercy endureth for ever;

042  And with them Heman and Jeduthun with trumpets and cymbals for those that should make a sound, and with musical instruments of God. And the sons of Jeduthun were porters.

043  And all the people departed every man to his house: and David returned to bless his house.
