A Tent for the Ark
(2 Samuel 6:17–19)

1And they will bring the ark of God and set it in the midst of the tent which David stretched out for it: and they will bring near burnt-offerings and peace before God. 2And David will finish the bringing up of the burnt-offering and the peace, and he will bless the people in the name of Jehovah. 3And he will divide to every man of Israel from man and even to woman, to each a round of bread, and a measure and cakes.

4And he will give before the ark of Jehovah from the Levites serving, and for keeping in remembrance, and to confess and to praise to Jehovah God of Israel. 5Asaph the head, and his second, Zechariah, Jeiel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Mattithiah, and Eliab, and Benaiah, and Obed-Edom: and Jeiel with instruments of lyres and harps; and Asaph with trumpets causing to hear; 6And Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets continually before the ark of the covenant of God.

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

7In that day thus David gave at the first to confess to Jehovah by the hand of Asaph and his brethren.

8Confess ye to Jehovah, call upon his name, make known among the peoples his deeds.

9Sing ye to him, play on the harp to him, speak upon all his wonders.

10Praise ye in his holy name: the heart of those seeking Jehovah shall rejoice.

11Seek ye Jehovah and his strength, seek his face always.

12Remember ye his wonders which he did, and his miracles, and the judgments of his mouth;

13O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye sons of Jacob his chosen ones.

14He Jehovah our God; in all the earth his judgments.

15Remember ye forever his covenant; the word be commanded to a thousand generations;

16Which he cut out with Abraham, and his oath to Isaak.

17And he will cause it to stand to Jacob for a law, to Israel a covenant forever,

18Saying, To thee I will give the land of Canaan, the cord of your inheritance;

19In your being men of number, as few, and strangers in it.

20And they will go about from nation to nation, and from kingdom to another people;

21And he permitted not to a man to oppress them: and for them he will reprove kings:

22Ye shall not touch upon my Messiah, and upon my prophets ye shall not do evil.

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

23Sing ye to Jehovah, all the earth; announce good news, from day to day his salvation.

24Recount his glory among the nations; his wonders among all peoples.

25For great is Jehovah, and greatly praised: and he to be feared above all gods.

26For all the gods of the peoples nothings: and Jehovah made the heavens.

27Glory and honor before his face; strength and joy in his place.

28Give to Jehovah ye families of the peoples, give to Jehovah glory and strength.

29Give ye to Jehovah the glory of his name: lift up a gift and come before him: worship to Jehovah the ornaments of holiness.

30Tremble from before him, all ye earth: also the habitable globe shall be set up, it shall not be shaken.

31The heavens shall rejoice, and the earth shall exult: and they shall say among the nations, Jehovah reigned:

32The sea shall tremble and its fulness, and the field shall rejoice and all that is in it.

33Then shall the trees of the forest shout from the face of Jehovah, for he came to judge the earth.

34Confess ye to Jehovah, for he is good, for his mercy is forever.

35And say ye, Save us, God of our salvation, and gather us together and deliver us from the nations, to confess to thy holy name, to glory in thy praise.

36Praised be Jehovah God of Israel from forever and even to forever. And all the people will say, Amen, and praise to Jehovah.

Worship before the Ark

37And he will leave there before the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, to Asaph and to his brethren, to serve before the ark always, for the word of a day in its day. 38And Obed-Edom and his brethren, sixty and eight; and Obed-Edom son of Jeduthun and Hosah for gate-keepers: 39And Zadok the priest, and his brethren the priests, before the dwelling of Jehovah in the height which is in Gibeon. 40To bring up burnt-offerings to Jehovah upon the altar of burnt-offering always at morning and at evening, and according to all written in the law of Jehovah which he charged upon Israel; 41And with them Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest being chosen, who were separated by names to confess to Jehovah: for his mercy is forever. 42And with them Heman and Jeduthun, with trumpets and cymbals to cause to hear, and instruments of song of God. And the sons of Jeduthun at the gate.

43And all the people will go each to his house: and David will turn about to bless his house.
