1 Chronicles 16:4-5; 1 Chronicles 16:7; 1 Chronicles 16:37
He appointed some of the Levites to minister before the ark of the LORD, to make petition, to give thanks, and to praise the LORD, the God of Israel:
Asaph was the chief, Zechariah second, then Jeiel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Mattithiah, Eliab, Benaiah, Obed-Edom and Jeiel. They were to play the lyres and harps, Asaph was to sound the cymbals,
That day David first committed to Asaph and his associates this psalm of thanks to the LORD:
David left Asaph and his associates before the ark of the covenant of the LORD to minister there regularly, according to each day's requirements.
