1 Chronicles 16:1-12New American Standard Bible (NASB)
A Tent for the Ark
16 And they brought in the ark of God and placed it inside the tent which 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 the name of the Lord.3 He distributed to everyone of Israel, both man and woman, to everyone a loaf of bread and a portion of meat and a raisin cake.
4 He appointed some of the Levites as ministers before the ark of the Lord, even to celebrate and to thank and praise the Lord God of Israel:5 Asaph the chief, and second to him Zechariah, then[a]Jeiel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Mattithiah, Eliab, Benaiah, Obed-edom and Jeiel, with musical instruments, harps, lyres; also Asaph played loud-sounding cymbals,6 and Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests blew trumpets continually before the ark of the covenant of God.
7 Then on that day David first assigned [b]Asaph and his [c]relatives to give thanks to the Lord.
Psalm of Thanksgiving
8 Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. 9 Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; [d]Speak of all His [e]wonders. 10 [f]Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad. 11 Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually. 12 Remember His wonderful deeds which He has done, His marvels and the judgments from His mouth,
1 Chronicles 16:34-36New American Standard Bible (NASB)
34 O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting. 35 Then say, “Save us, O God of our salvation, And gather us and deliver us from the nations, To give thanks to Your holy name, And [a]glory in Your praise.” 36 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, From everlasting even to everlasting.
Then all the people said, “Amen,” and praised the Lord.
