1 Chronicles 16:8-22
New American Standard Bible
Psalm of Thanksgiving
8 (A)Give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name;
(B)Make His deeds known among the peoples.
9 Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
[a]Speak of all His [b]wonders.
10 Boast in His holy name;
Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be joyful.
11 (C)Seek the Lord and His strength;
Seek His face continually.
12 (D)Remember His wonderful deeds which He has done,
(E)His marvels and the judgments from His mouth,
13 You [c]descendants of Israel His servant,
Sons of Jacob, His chosen ones!
14 He is the Lord our God;
(F)His judgments are in all the earth.
15 Remember His covenant forever,
The word which He commanded to a thousand generations,
16 (G)The covenant which He made with Abraham,
And His oath to Isaac.
17 (H)He also confirmed it to Jacob as a statute,
To Israel as an everlasting covenant,
18 Saying, “(I)To you I will give the land of Canaan,
As the portion of your inheritance.”
19 (J)When they were only a few in number,
Very few, and strangers in it,
20 And they wandered from nation to nation,
And from one kingdom to another people,
21 He allowed no one to oppress them,
And (K)He rebuked kings for their sakes, saying,
22 “Do not touch My anointed ones,
And (L)do not harm My prophets.”
