1: And they brought in the ark of God, and set it in the midst of the tent that David had spread for it; and they presented burnt-offerings and peace-offerings before God. 2: And when David had ended offering up the burnt-offerings and the peace-offerings, he blessed the people in the name of Jehovah. 3: And he dealt to every one of Israel, both man and woman, to every one a loaf of bread and a measure [of wine] and a raisin-cake. 4: And he appointed certain of the Levites to do the service before the ark of Jehovah, and to celebrate, and to thank and praise Jehovah the God of Israel: 5: Asaph the chief, and second to him Zechariah, Jeiel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Mattithiah, and Eliab, and Benaiah and Obed-Edom, and Jeiel, with instruments of lutes and with harps; and Asaph sounding with cymbals; 6: and Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets continually, before the ark of the covenant of God. 7: Then on that day David delivered first [this psalm] to give thanks to Jehovah through Asaph and his brethren. 8: Give thanks unto Jehovah, call upon his name; Make known his acts among the peoples. 9: Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him; Meditate upon all his wondrous works. 10: Glory in his holy name: Let the heart of them rejoice that seek Jehovah. 11: Seek Jehovah and his strength, Seek his face continually; 12: Remember his wondrous works which he hath done; His miracles, and the judgments of his mouth: 13: Ye seed of Israel his servant, Ye sons of Jacob, his chosen ones. 14: He, Jehovah, is our God; His judgments are in all the earth. 15: Be ye ever mindful of his covenant, The word which he commanded to a thousand generations, -- 16: Which he made with Abraham, And of his oath unto Isaac; 17: And he confirmed it unto Jacob for a statute, Unto Israel for an everlasting covenant, 18: Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, The lot of your inheritance; 19: When ye were a few men in number, Of small account, and strangers in it. 20: And they went from nation to nation, And from one kingdom to another people. 21: He suffered no man to oppress them, And reproved kings for their sakes, 22: [Saying,] Touch not mine anointed ones, And do my prophets no harm. 23: Sing unto Jehovah, all the earth; Publish his salvation from day to day. 24: Declare his glory among the nations, His wondrous works among all peoples. 25: For Jehovah is great, and exceedingly to be praised; And he is terrible above all gods. 26: For all the gods of the peoples are idols; But Jehovah made the heavens. 27: Majesty and splendour are before him; Strength and gladness in his place. 28: Give unto Jehovah, ye families of peoples, Give unto Jehovah glory and strength! 29: Give unto Jehovah the glory of his name! Bring an oblation, and come before him: Worship Jehovah in holy splendour. 30: Tremble before him, all the earth: The world also is established, it shall not be moved. 31: Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; And let them say among the nations, Jehovah reigneth! 32: Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; Let the field exult, and all that is therein. 33: Then shall the trees of the forest sing out at the presence of Jehovah, For he cometh to judge the earth. 34: Give thanks unto Jehovah, for he is good; For his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever. 35: And say, Save us, O God of our salvation, And gather us, and deliver us from the nations, To give thanks unto thy holy name, To triumph in thy praise. 36: Blessed be Jehovah the God of Israel, from eternity and to eternity! And all the people said, Amen! and praised Jehovah. 37: And he left there, before the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, Asaph and his brethren, to do the service before the ark continually, as every day's duty required; 38: and Obed-Edom, and their brethren, sixty-eight; Obed-Edom also, the son of Jeduthun, and Hosah as doorkeepers. 39: And Zadok the priest, and his brethren the priests, before the tabernacle of Jehovah in the high place that was at Gibeon, 40: to offer up burnt-offerings to Jehovah on the altar of burnt-offering continually, morning and evening, and according to all that is written in the law of Jehovah, which he commanded Israel; 41: and with them Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest that were chosen, who were expressed by name, to give thanks to Jehovah, because his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever; 42: and with them, [with] Heman and Jeduthun, trumpets and cymbals for those that should sound aloud; and the musical instruments of God. And the sons of Jeduthun were at the gate. 43: And all the people departed every one to his house; and David returned to bless his household.
