1 Chronicles 16 (WEBP)

[1] They brought in God’s ark, and set it in the middle of the tent that David had pitched for it; and they offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before God.
[2] When David had finished offering the burnt offering and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in Yahweh’s name.
[3] He gave to everyone of Israel, both man and woman, to everyone a loaf of bread, a portion of meat, and a cake of raisins.
[4] He appointed some of the Levites to minister before Yahweh’s ark, and to commemorate, to thank, and to praise Yahweh, the God of Israel:
[5] Asaph the chief, and second to him Zechariah, then Jeiel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Mattithiah, Eliab, Benaiah, Obed-Edom, and Jeiel, with stringed instruments and with harps; and Asaph with cymbals, sounding aloud;
[6] with Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets continually, before the ark of the covenant of God.
[7] Then on that day David first ordained giving of thanks to Yahweh by the hand of Asaph and his brothers.
[8] Oh give thanks to Yahweh. Call on his name. Make what he has done known among the peoples.
[9] Sing to him. Sing praises to him. Tell of all his marvelous works.
[10] Glory in his holy name. Let the heart of those who seek Yahweh rejoice.
[11] Seek Yahweh and his strength. Seek his face forever more.
[12] Remember his marvelous works that he has done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth,
[13] you offspring§ of Israel his servant, you children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
[14] He is Yahweh our God. His judgments are in all the earth.
[15] Remember his covenant forever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations,
[16] the covenant which he made with Abraham, his oath to Isaac.
[17] He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
[18] saying, “I will give you the land of Canaan, The lot of your inheritance,”
[19] when you were but a few men in number, yes, very few, and foreigners in it.
[20] They went about from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people.
[21] He allowed no man to do them wrong. Yes, he reproved kings for their sakes,
[22] “Don’t touch my anointed ones! Do my prophets no harm!”
[23] Sing to Yahweh, all the earth! Display his salvation from day to day.
[24] Declare his glory among the nations, and his marvelous works among all the peoples.
[25] For great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised. He also is to be feared above all gods.
[26] For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but Yahweh made the heavens.
[27] Honor and majesty are before him. Strength and gladness are in his place.
[28] Ascribe to Yahweh, you families of the peoples, ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength!
[29] Ascribe to Yahweh the glory due to his name. Bring an offering, and come before him. Worship Yahweh in holy array.
[30] Tremble before him, all the earth. The world also is established that it can’t be moved.
[31] Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice! Let them say among the nations, “Yahweh reigns!”
[32] Let the sea roar, and its fullness! Let the field exult, and all that is in it!
[33] Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before Yahweh, for he comes to judge the earth.
[34] Oh give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, for his loving kindness endures forever.
[35] Say, “Save us, God of our salvation! Gather us together and deliver us from the nations, to give thanks to your holy name, to triumph in your praise.”
[36] Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Israel, from everlasting even to everlasting. All the people said, “Amen,” and praised Yahweh.
[37] So he left Asaph and his brothers there before the ark of Yahweh’s covenant, to minister before the ark continually, as every day’s work required;
[38] and Obed-Edom with their sixty-eight relatives; Obed-Edom also the son of Jeduthun and Hosah to be doorkeepers;
[39] and Zadok the priest and his brothers the priests, before Yahweh’s tabernacle in the high place that was at Gibeon,
[40] to offer burnt offerings to Yahweh on the altar of burnt offering continually morning and evening, even according to all that is written in Yahweh’s law, which he commanded to Israel;
[41] and with them Heman and Jeduthun and the rest who were chosen, who were mentioned by name, to give thanks to Yahweh, because his loving kindness endures forever;
[42] and with them Heman and Jeduthun with trumpets and cymbals for those that should sound aloud, and with instruments for the songs of God, and the sons of Jeduthun to be at the gate.
[43] All the people departed, each man to his house; and David returned to bless his house.

1 Chronicles 16 (KJVS)

[1] So they brought H935 (8686) the ark H727 of God H430, and set H3322 (8686) it in the midst H8432 of the tent H168 that David H1732 had pitched H5186 (8804) for it: and they offered H7126 (8686) burnt sacrifices H5930 and peace offerings H8002 before H6440 God H430.
[2] And when David H1732 had made an end H3615 (8762) of offering H5927 (8687) the burnt offerings H5930 and the peace offerings H8002, he blessed H1288 (8762) the people H5971 in the name H8034 of the LORD H3068.
[3] And he dealt H2505 (8762) to every one H376 of Israel H3478, both man H376 and woman H802, to every one H376 a loaf H3603 of bread H3899, and a good piece of flesh H829, and a flagon H809 [of wine].
[4] And he appointed H5414 (8799) [certain] of the Levites H3881 to minister H8334 (8764) before H6440 the ark H727 of the LORD H3068, and to record H2142 (8687), and to thank H3034 (8687) and praise H1984 (8763) the LORD H3068 God H430 of Israel H3478:
[5] Asaph H623 the chief H7218, and next H4932 to him Zechariah H2148, Jeiel H3273, and Shemiramoth H8070, and Jehiel H3171, and Mattithiah H4993, and Eliab H446, and Benaiah H1141, and Obededom H5654: and Jeiel H3273 with psalteries H5035 H3627 and with harps H3658; but Asaph H623 made a sound H8085 (8688) with cymbals H4700;
[6] Benaiah H1141 also and Jahaziel H3166 the priests H3548 with trumpets H2689 continually H8548 before H6440 the ark H727 of the covenant H1285 of God H430.
[7] Then on that day H3117 David H1732 delivered H5414 (8804) first H7218 [this psalm] to thank H3034 (8687) the LORD H3068 into the hand H3027 of Asaph H623 and his brethren H251.
[8] Give thanks H3034 (8685) unto the LORD H3068, call H7121 (8798) upon his name H8034, make known H3045 (8685) his deeds H5949 among the people H5971.
[9] Sing H7891 (8798) unto him, sing psalms H2167 (8761) unto him, talk H7878 (8798) ye of all his wondrous H6381 (8737) works.
[10] Glory H1984 (8690) ye in his holy H6944 name H8034: let the heart H3820 of them rejoice H8055 (8799) that seek H1245 (8764) the LORD H3068.
[11] Seek H1875 (8798) the LORD H3068 and his strength H5797, seek H1245 (8761) his face H6440 continually H8548.
[12] Remember H2142 (8798) his marvellous H6381 (8737) works that he hath done H6213 (8804), his wonders H4159, and the judgments H4941 of his mouth H6310;
[13] O ye seed H2233 of Israel H3478 his servant H5650, ye children H1121 of Jacob H3290, his chosen ones H972.
[14] He [is] the LORD H3068 our God H430; his judgments H4941 [are] in all the earth H776.
[15] Be ye mindful H2142 (8798) always H5769 of his covenant H1285; the word H1697 [which] he commanded H6680 (8765) to a thousand H505 generations H1755;
[16] [Even of the covenant] which he made H3772 (8804) with Abraham H85, and of his oath H7621 unto Isaac H3327;
[17] And hath confirmed H5975 (8686) the same to Jacob H3290 for a law H2706, [and] to Israel H3478 [for] an everlasting H5769 covenant H1285,
[18] Saying H559 (8800), Unto thee will I give H5414 (8799) the land H776 of Canaan H3667, the lot H2256 of your inheritance H5159;
[19] When ye were but few H4557 H4962, even a few H4592, and strangers H1481 (8802) in it.
[20] And [when] they went H1980 (8691) from nation H1471 to nation H1471, and from [one] kingdom H4467 to another H312 people H5971;
[21] He suffered H3240 (8689) no man H376 to do them wrong H6231 (8800): yea, he reproved H3198 (8686) kings H4428 for their sakes,
[22] [Saying], Touch H5060 (8799) not mine anointed H4899, and do my prophets H5030 no harm H7489 (8686).
[23] Sing H7891 (8798) unto the LORD H3068, all the earth H776; shew forth H1319 (8761) from day H3117 to day H3117 his salvation H3444.
[24] Declare H5608 (8761) his glory H3519 among the heathen H1471; his marvellous works H6381 (8737) among all nations H5971.
[25] For great H1419 [is] the LORD H3068, and greatly H3966 to be praised H1984 (8794): he also [is] to be feared H3372 (8737) above all gods H430.
[26] For all the gods H430 of the people H5971 [are] idols H457: but the LORD H3068 made H6213 (8804) the heavens H8064.
[27] Glory H1935 and honour H1926 [are] in his presence H6440; strength H5797 and gladness H2304 [are] in his place H4725.
[28] Give H3051 (8798) unto the LORD H3068, ye kindreds H4940 of the people H5971, give H3051 (8798) unto the LORD H3068 glory H3519 and strength H5797.
[29] Give H3051 (8798) unto the LORD H3068 the glory H3519 [due] unto his name H8034: bring H5375 (8798) an offering H4503, and come H935 (8798) before H6440 him: worship H7812 (8690) the LORD H3068 in the beauty H1927 of holiness H6944.
[30] Fear H2342 (8798) before H6440 him, all the earth H776: the world H8398 also shall be stable H3559 (8735), that it be not moved H4131 (8735).
[31] Let the heavens H8064 be glad H8055 (8799), and let the earth H776 rejoice H1523 (8799): and let [men] say H559 (8799) among the nations H1471, The LORD H3068 reigneth H4427 (8804).
[32] Let the sea H3220 roar H7481 (8799), and the fulness H4393 thereof: let the fields H7704 rejoice H5970 (8799), and all that [is] therein.
[33] Then shall the trees H6086 of the wood H3293 sing out H7442 (8762) at the presence H6440 of the LORD H3068, because he cometh H935 (8804) to judge H8199 (8800) the earth H776.
[34] O give thanks H3034 (8685) unto the LORD H3068; for [he is] good H2896; for his mercy H2617 [endureth] for ever H5769.
[35] And say H559 (8798) ye, Save H3467 (8685) us, O God H430 of our salvation H3468, and gather us together H6908 (8761), and deliver H5337 (8685) us from the heathen H1471, that we may give thanks H3034 (8687) to thy holy H6944 name H8034, [and] glory H7623 (8692) in thy praise H8416.
[36] Blessed H1288 (8803) [be] the LORD H3068 God H430 of Israel H3478 for ever H5769 and ever H5769. And all the people H5971 said H559 (8799), Amen H543, and praised H1984 (8763) the LORD H3068.
[37] So he left H5800 (8799) there before H6440 the ark H727 of the covenant H1285 of the LORD H3068 Asaph H623 and his brethren H251, to minister H8334 (8763) before H6440 the ark H727 continually H8548, as every day’s H3117 work H1697 required H3117:
[38] And Obededom H5654 with their brethren H251, threescore H8346 and eight H8083; Obededom H5654 also the son H1121 of Jeduthun H3038 and Hosah H2621 [to be] porters H7778:
[39] And Zadok H6659 the priest H3548, and his brethren H251 the priests H3548, before H6440 the tabernacle H4908 of the LORD H3068 in the high place H1116 that [was] at Gibeon H1391,
[40] To offer H5927 (8687) burnt offerings H5930 unto the LORD H3068 upon the altar H4196 of the burnt offering H5930 continually H8548 morning H1242 and evening H6153, and [to do] according to all that is written H3789 (8803) in the law H8451 of the LORD H3068, which he commanded H6680 (8765) Israel H3478;
[41] And with them Heman H1968 and Jeduthun H3038, and the rest H7605 that were chosen H1305 (8803), who were expressed H5344 (8738) by name H8034, to give thanks H3034 (8687) to the LORD H3068, because his mercy H2617 [endureth] for ever H5769;
[42] And with them Heman H1968 and Jeduthun H3038 with trumpets H2689 and cymbals H4700 for those that should make a sound H8085 (8688), and with musical H7892 instruments H3627 of God H430. And the sons H1121 of Jeduthun H3038 [were] porters H8179.
[43] And all the people H5971 departed H3212 (8799) every man H376 to his house H1004: and David H1732 returned H5437 (8735) to bless H1288 (8763) his house H1004.

Young’s Literal Translation

1 Chronicles 16 (YLT)

[1] And they bring in the ark of God, and set it up in the midst of the tent that David hath stretched out for it, and they bring near burnt-offerings and peace-offerings before God;
[2] and David ceaseth from offering the burnt-offering and the peace-offerings, and blesseth the people in the name of Jehovah,
[3] and giveth a portion to every man of Israel, both man and woman: to each a cake of bread, and a measure of wine, and a grape-cake.
[4] And he putteth before the ark of Jehovah, of the Levites, ministers, even to make mention of, and to thank, and to give praise to Jehovah, God of Israel,
[5] Asaph the head, and his second Zechariah; Jeiel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Mattithiah, and Eliab, and Benaiah, and Obed-Edom, and Jeiel, with instruments of psalteries, and with harps; and Asaph with cymbals is sounding;
[6] and Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests are with trumpets continually before the ark of the covenant of God.
[7] On that day then hath David given at the beginning to give thanks to Jehovah by the hand of Asaph and his brethren:-
[8] Give thanks to Jehovah, call in His name, Make known among the peoples His doings.
[9] Sing ye to Him, sing psalms to Him, Meditate on all His wonders.
[10] Boast yourselves in His holy name, Rejoice doth the heart of those seeking Jehovah.
[11] Seek ye Jehovah and His strength, Seek His face continually.
[12] Remember His wonders that He did, His signs, and the judgments of His mouth,
[13] O seed of Israel, His servant, O sons of Jacob, His chosen ones!
[14] He is Jehovah our God, In all the earth are His judgments.
[15] Remember ye to the age His covenant, The word He commanded- To a thousand generations,
[16] Which He hath made with Abraham, And His oath-to Isaac,
[17] And He establisheth it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel-a covenant age-during.
[18] Saying: To thee I give the land of Canaan, The portion of your inheritance,
[19] When ye are few of number, As a little thing, and sojourners in it.
[20] And they go up and down, From nation unto nation, And from a kingdom unto another people.
[21] He hath not suffered any to oppress them, And reproveth on their account kings:
[22] Come not against Mine anointed ones, And against My prophets do not evil.
[23] Sing to Jehovah, all the earth, Proclaim from day unto day His salvation.
[24] Rehearse among nations His glory, Among all the peoples His wonders.
[25] For great is Jehovah, and praised greatly, And fearful He is above all gods.
[26] For all gods of the peoples are nought, And Jehovah the heavens hath made.
[27] Honour and majesty are before Him, Strength and joy are in His place.
[28] Ascribe to Jehovah, ye families of peoples, Ascribe to Jehovah honour and strength.
[29] Ascribe to Jehovah the honour of His name, Lift up a present, and come before Him. Bow yourselves to Jehovah, In the beauty of holiness.
[30] Be pained before Him, all the earth:
[31] Also, established is the world, It is not moved! The heavens rejoice, and the earth is glad, And they say among nations: Jehovah hath reigned.
[32] Roar doth the sea, and its fulness, Exult doth the field, and all that is in it,
[33] Then sing do trees of the forest, From the presence of Jehovah, For He hath come to judge the earth!
[34] Give thanks to Jehovah, for good, For to the age, is His kindness,
[35] And say, Save us, O God of our salvation, And gather us, and deliver us from the nations, To give thanks to Thy holy name, To triumph in Thy praise.
[36] Blessed is Jehovah, God of Israel, From the age and unto the age;’ And all the people say, ‘Amen,’ and have given praise to Jehovah.
[37] And he leaveth there before the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, for Asaph and for his brethren, to minister before the ark continually, according to the matter of a day in its day,
[38] both Obed-Edom and their brethren, sixty and eight, and Obed-Edom son of Jeduthun, and Hosah for gatekeepers,
[39] and Zadok the priest, and his brethren the priests, before the tabernacle of Jehovah, in a high place that is in Gibeon,
[40] to cause to ascend burnt-offerings to Jehovah, on the altar of burnt-offering continually, morning and evening, and for all that is written in the law of Jehovah, that He charged on Israel.
[41] And with them are Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest of those chosen, who were defined by name, to give thanks to Jehovah, for to the age is His kindness,
[42] and with them-Heman and Jeduthun-are trumpets and cymbals for those sounding, and instruments of the song of God, and the sons of Jeduthun are at the gate.
[43] And all the people go, each to his house, and David turneth round to bless his house.
