Romans 5:6-11New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

At just the right time Christ died for ungodly people. He died for us when we had no power of our own. It is unusual for anyone to die for a godly person. Maybe someone would be willing to die for a good person. But here is how God has shown his love for us. While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

The blood of Christ has made us right with God. So we are even more sure that Jesus will save us from God’s anger. 10 Once we were God’s enemies. But we have been brought back to him because his Son has died for us. Now that God has brought us back, we are even more secure. We know that we will be saved because Christ lives. 11 And that is not all. We are full of joy in God because of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of him, God has brought us back to himself.

Romans 5:6-11Amplified Bible (AMP)

While we were still helpless [powerless to provide for our salvation], at the right time Christ died [as a substitute] for the ungodly. Now it is an extraordinary thing for one to willingly give his life even for an upright man, though perhaps for a good man [one who is noble and selfless and worthy] someone might even dare to die. But God clearly shows and proves His own love for us, by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Therefore, since we have now been justified [declared free of the guilt of sin] by His blood, [how much more certain is it that] we will be saved from the [a]wrath of God through Him. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, it is much more certain, having been reconciled, that we will be saved [from the consequences of sin] by His life [that is, we will be saved because Christ lives today]. 11 Not only that, but we also rejoice in God [rejoicing in His love and perfection] through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received and enjoy our reconciliation [with God].

  1. Romans 5:9 The “wrath of God,” with the definite article in Greek, anticipates the outpouring of God’s wrath on rebellious sinners in the tribulation period (cf Rev 6:16, 17).

1 Chronicles 16:7-36New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

That day was the first time David appointed Asaph and his helpers. He appointed them to give praise to the Lord with these words.

Give praise to the Lord. Make his name known.
    Tell the nations what he has done.
Sing to him. Sing praise to him.
    Tell about all the wonderful things he has done.
10 Honor him, because his name is holy.
    Let the hearts of those who trust in the Lord be glad.
11 Look to the Lord and to his strength.
    Always look to him.
12 Remember the wonderful things he has done.
    Remember his miracles and how he judged our enemies.
13 Remember, you his servants, the children of Israel.
    Remember, you people of Jacob. Remember, you who are chosen by God.

14 He is the Lord our God.
    He judges the whole earth.
15 He will keep his covenant forever.
    He will keep his promise for all time to come.
16 He will keep the covenant he made with Abraham.
    He will keep the promise he made to Isaac.
17 He made it stand as a law for Jacob.
    He made it stand as a covenant for Israel. It will last forever.
18 He said, “I will give you the land of Canaan.
    It will belong to you.”

19 At first there weren’t very many of God’s people.
    There were only a few. And they were strangers in the land.
20 They wandered from nation to nation.
    They wandered from one kingdom to another.
21 But God didn’t allow anyone to treat them badly.
    To keep them safe, he gave a command to kings.
22 He said to them, “Do not touch my anointed ones.
    Do not harm my prophets.”

23 All you people of the earth, sing to the Lord.
    Day after day tell about how he saves us.
24 Tell the nations about his glory.
    Tell all people about the wonderful things he has done.
25 The Lord is great. He is really worthy of praise.
    People should have respect for him as the greatest God of all.
26 All the gods of the nations are like their statues.
    They can’t do anything.
    But the Lord made the heavens.
27 Glory and majesty are all around him.
    Strength and joy are in the place where he lives.
28 Praise the Lord, all you nations.
    Praise the Lord for his glory and strength.
29     Praise the Lord for the glory that belongs to him.
Bring an offering and come to him.
    Worship the Lord because of his beauty and holiness.
30 All you people of the earth, tremble when you are with him.
    The world is firmly set in place. It can’t be moved.
31 Let the heavens be filled with joy. Let the earth be glad.
    Let them say among the nations, “The Lord rules!”
32 Let the ocean and everything in it roar.
    Let the fields and everything in them be glad.
33 Let the trees in the forest sing with joy.
    They will sing before the Lord.
    He will judge the people of the world.

34 Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good.
    His faithful love continues forever.
35 Cry out, “Save us, God our Savior.
    Save us. Bring us back from among the nations.
Then we will give thanks to you, because your name is holy.
    We will celebrate by praising you.”
36 Give praise to the Lord, the God of Israel,
    for ever and ever.

Then all the people said, “Amen!” They also said, “Praise the Lord.”

1 Chronicles 16:7-36Amplified Bible (AMP)

Then on that day David first entrusted to Asaph and his relatives to give thanks to the Lord [as their chief task].

Psalm of Thanksgiving


O give thanks to the Lord, call on His name;
Make His deeds known among the peoples.

Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
Speak of all His wonders.
10 
Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
11 
Seek the Lord and His strength;
Seek His face continually [longing to be in His presence].
12 
Remember [with gratitude] His marvelous deeds which He has done,
His miracles and the judgments from His mouth,
13 
O seed of Israel His servant,
[a]Children of Jacob, His chosen ones!
14 
He is the Lord our God;
His judgments are in all the earth.
15 
Be mindful of His covenant forever,
The promise which He commanded and established to a thousand generations,
16 
The covenant which He made with Abraham,
And His oath (sworn promise) to Isaac.
17 
He confirmed it as a statute to Jacob,
And to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
18 
Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan,
As the portion of your possession and inheritance.”
19 
When you were few in number,
Even a very few, and strangers in it,
20 
When they wandered from nation to nation,
And from one kingdom to another people,
21 
He allowed no man to oppress or exploit them,
And, He reproved and punished kings for their sakes, saying,
22 
“Do not touch My anointed ones,
And do My prophets no harm.”
23 
Sing to the Lord, all the earth;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
24 
Declare His glory among the nations,
His marvelous works among all peoples.
25 
For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
He is also to be feared [with awe-filled reverence] above all gods.
26 
For all the gods of the peoples are [lifeless] idols,
But the Lord made the heavens.
27 
Splendor and majesty are [found] in His presence;
Strength and joy are [found] in His place (sanctuary).
28 
Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
Ascribe to the Lord glory and honor and strength.
29 
Ascribe to the Lord the glory and honor due His name;
Bring an offering [of thanksgiving], and come before Him;
Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.
30 
Tremble [reverently] before Him, all the earth;
The world is firmly established, it will not be moved.
31 
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
And let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.”
32 
Let the sea roar, and all the things that fill it;
Let the field rejoice, and all that is in it.
33 
Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the Lord;
For He comes to judge and govern the earth.
34 
O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness endures forever.
35 
Then say, “Save us, O God of our salvation;
Gather us together and rescue us from the nations,
That we may give thanks to Your holy name,
And glory in Your praise.”
36 
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
Forever and ever.

And all the people said, “Amen,” and praised the Lord.
