1 Crônicas 16

1 So they brought in the Arke of God, and set it in the middes of the Tabernacle that Dauid had pitched for it, and they offred burnt offrings and peace offrings before God.

2 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.

3 And he dealt to euery one of Israel both man and woman, to euery one a cake of breade, and a piece of flesh, and a bottel of wine.

4 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:

5 Asaph the chiefe, and next to him Zechariah, Ieiel, and Shemiramoth, and Iehiel, & Mattithiah, and Eliab, and Benaiah, and Obed Edom, euen Ieiel with instruments, violes and harpes, and Asaph to make a sound with cymbales,

6 And Benaiah and Iahaziel Priestes, with trumpets continually before the Arke of the couenant of God.

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

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

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

10 Reioyce in his holy Name: let the hearts of them that seeke the Lord reioyce.

11 Seeke the Lord and his strength: seeke his face continually.

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

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

14 He is the Lorde our God: his iudgements are throughout all the earth.

15 Remember his couenant for euer, and the worde, which hee commaunded to a thousand generations:

16 Which he made with Abraham, and his othe to Izhak:

17 And hath confirmed it to Iaakob for a Law, & to Israel for an euerlasting couenant,

18 Saying, To thee will I giue the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance.

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

20 And walked about from nation to nation, and from one kingdome to another people,

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

22 [Saying], Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

23 Sing vnto the Lord all the earth: declare his saluation from day to day.

24 Declare his glory among the nations, and his wonderful workes among all people.

25 For the Lorde is great & much to be praised, and hee is to bee feared aboue all gods.

26 For all the gods of the people [are] idols: but the LORD made the heavens.

27 Prayse and glory are before him: power & beautie are in his place.

28 Giue vnto the Lord, ye families of the people: giue vnto the Lord glory and power.

29 Giue vnto the Lorde ye glory of his Name: bring an offring and come before him, and worship the Lorde in the glorious Sanctuarie.

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

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

32 Let the sea roare, and all that therein is: Let the field be ioyfull and all that is in it.

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

34 Prayse the Lorde, for hee is good, for his mercie endureth for euer.

35 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.

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

37 Then he left there before the Arke of the Lordes couenant Asaph and his brethren to minister continually before the Arke, that which was to be done euery day:

38 And Obed Edom and his brethren, three score and eight: and Obed Edom the sonne of Ieduthun, and Hosah were porters.

39 And Zadok the Priest and his brethren the Priestes were before the Tabernacle of ye Lorde, in the hie place that was at Gibeon,

40 To offer burnt offrings vnto the Lord, vpon the burnt offring altar continually, in the morning and in the euening, euen according vnto all that is written in the law of the Lord, which hee commaunded Israel.

41 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;

42 Euen with them were Heman & Ioduthun, to make a sound with the cornets and with the cymbales, with excellent instruments of musicke: and the sonnes of Ieduthun were at the gate.

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