1 Chronicles 16:8-22
English Standard Version Anglicised
David's Song of Thanks
8 (A)Oh give thanks to the Lord; (B)call upon his name;
(C)make known his deeds among the peoples!
9 Sing to him; sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!
10 Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
11 (D)Seek the Lord and his strength;
seek his presence continually!
12 (E)Remember the wondrous works that he has done,
(F)his miracles and the judgements he uttered,
13 O offspring of Israel his servant,
sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!
14 He is the Lord our God;
(G)his judgements are in all the earth.
15 Remember his covenant for ever,
the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,
16 the covenant (H)that he made with Abraham,
his sworn promise to Isaac,
17 which (I)he confirmed as a statute to Jacob,
as an everlasting covenant to Israel,
18 saying, (J)“To you I will give the land of Canaan,
as your portion for an inheritance.”
19 When you were (K)few in number,
and of little account, and (L)sojourners in it,
20 wandering from nation to nation,
from one kingdom to another people,
21 he allowed no one to oppress them;
he (M)rebuked kings on their account,
22 saying, “Touch not my anointed ones,
do my (N)prophets no harm!”
