GOD’S WORD Translation
5 Then the Levites—Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah—said, “Stand up, and thank the Lord your God:
From everlasting to everlasting your glorious name is praised
and lifted high above all blessing and praise.
6 You alone are the Lord.
You made heaven, the highest heaven, with all its armies.
You made the earth and everything on it,
the seas and everything in them.
You give life to them all, and the armies of heaven worship you.
7 You are the Lord, the God who chose Abram
and took him from Ur of the Chaldeans
and gave him the name Abraham.
