A Tent for the Ark
(2 Samuel 6:17–19)

1So they brought in the Arke of God, and set it in the middes of the Tabernacle that Dauid had pitched for it, and they offred burnt offrings and peace offrings before God. 2And when Dauid had made an ende of offering the burnt offering and the peace offerings, hee blessed the people in the Name of the Lorde. 3And he dealt to euery one of Israel both man and woman, to euery one a cake of breade, and a piece of flesh, and a bottel of wine.

4And he appointed certaine of the Leuites to minister before the Arke of the Lorde, and to rehearse and to thanke and prayse the Lord God of Israel: 5Asaph the chiefe, and next to him Zechariah, Ieiel, and Shemiramoth, and Iehiel, & Mattithiah, and Eliab, and Benaiah, and Obed Edom, euen Ieiel with instruments, violes and harpes, and Asaph to make a sound with cymbales, 6And Benaiah and Iahaziel Priestes, with trumpets continually before the Arke of the couenant of God.

David’s Psalm of Thanksgiving
(Psalm 105:1–15)

7Then at that time Dauid did appoint at the beginning to giue thankes to the Lorde by the hand of Asaph and his brethren.

8Praise the Lorde and call vpon his Name: declare his workes among the people.

9Sing vnto him, sing praise vnto him, and talke of all his wonderfull workes.

10Reioyce in his holy Name: let the hearts of them that seeke the Lord reioyce.

11Seeke the Lord and his strength: seeke his face continually.

12Remember his marueilous workes that he hath done, his wonders, and the iudgementes of his mouth,

13O seede of Israel his seruant, O the children of Iaakob his chosen.

14He is the Lorde our God: his iudgements are throughout all the earth.

15Remember his couenant for euer, and the worde, which hee commaunded to a thousand generations:

16Which he made with Abraham, and his othe to Izhak:

17And hath confirmed it to Iaakob for a Law, & to Israel for an euerlasting couenant,

18Saying, To thee will I giue the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance.

19When ye were fewe in number, yea, a very fewe, and strangers therein,

20And walked about from nation to nation, and from one kingdome to another people,

21He suffered no man to do them wrong, but rebuked Kings for their sakes, saying,

22Touch not mine anoynted, and doe my Prophets no harme.

Sing to the LORD, All the Earth
(Psalm 96:1–13)

23Sing vnto the Lord all the earth: declare his saluation from day to day.

24Declare his glory among the nations, and his wonderful workes among all people.

25For the Lorde is great & much to be praised, and hee is to bee feared aboue all gods.

26For all the gods of the people are idoles, but the Lord made the heauens.

27Prayse and glory are before him: power & beautie are in his place.

28Giue vnto the Lord, ye families of the people: giue vnto the Lord glory and power.

29Giue vnto the Lorde ye glory of his Name: bring an offring and come before him, and worship the Lorde in the glorious Sanctuarie.

30Tremble ye before him, al the earth: surely the world shalbe stable and not moue.

31Let the heauens reioyce, and let the earth be glad, and let them say among the nations, The Lorde reigneth.

32Let the sea roare, and all that therein is: Let the field be ioyfull and all that is in it.

33Let the trees of the wood then reioyce at the presence of the Lorde: for he commeth to iudge the earth.

34Prayse the Lorde, for hee is good, for his mercie endureth for euer.

35And say ye, Saue vs, O God, our saluation, and gather vs, and deliuer vs from the heathen, that we may prayse thine holy Name, and glorie in thy praise.

36Blessed be the Lord God of Israel for euer and euer: and let all people say, So be it, and praise the Lorde.

Worship before the Ark

37Then he left there before the Arke of the Lordes couenant Asaph and his brethren to minister continually before the Arke, that which was to be done euery day: 38And Obed Edom and his brethren, three score and eight: and Obed Edom the sonne of Ieduthun, and Hosah were porters. 39And Zadok the Priest and his brethren the Priestes were before the Tabernacle of ye Lorde, in the hie place that was at Gibeon, 40To offer burnt offrings vnto the Lord, vpon the burnt offring altar continually, in the morning and in the euening, euen according vnto all that is written in the law of the Lord, which hee commaunded Israel. 41And with them were Heman, and Ieduthun, and the rest that were chosen (which were appointed by names) to praise the Lorde, because his mercie endureth for euer. 42Euen with them were Heman & Ioduthun, to make a sound with the cornets and with the cymbales, with excellent instruments of musicke: and the sonnes of Ieduthun were at the gate.

43And all the people departed, euerie man to his house: and Dauid returned to blesse his house.
