David's Song of Thanks

8 1Oh give thanks to the LORD; 2call upon his name; 3make 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 4Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually! 12 5Remember the wondrous works that he has done, 6his miracles and the judgments he uttered, 13 O offspring of Israel his servant, sons of Jacob, his chosen ones! 14 He is the LORD our God; 7his judgments are in all the earth. 15 Remember his covenant forever, the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations, 16 the covenant 8that he made with Abraham, his sworn promise to Isaac, 17 which 9he confirmed as a statute to Jacob, as an everlasting covenant to Israel, 18 saying, 10"To you I will give the land of Canaan, as your portion for an inheritance." 19 When you were 11few in number, and of little account, and 12sojourners in it, 20 wandering from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people, 21 he allowed no one to oppress them; he 13rebuked kings on their account, 22 saying, "Touch not my anointed ones, do my 14prophets no harm!" 23 15Sing to the LORD, all the earth! Tell of his salvation from day to day. 24 Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples! 25 For 16great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and he is to be held in awe 17above all gods. 26 For all the gods of the peoples are idols, 18but the LORD made the heavens. 27 Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his place. 28 Ascribe to the LORD, O clans of the peoples, 19ascribe to the LORD glory and strength! 29 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him! 20Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness;a 30 tremble before him, all the earth; yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved. 31 21Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, 22"The LORD reigns!" 32 23Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it! 33 Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. 34 Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! 35 24Say also: "Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather and deliver us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name, and glory in your praise. 36 25Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting!"26Then all the people said, "Amen!" and praised the LORD.
