He said this when you were few in number, a tiny group of strangers in Canaan.
They wandered from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another.
Yet he did not let anyone oppress them. He warned kings on their behalf:
“Do not touch my chosen people, and do not hurt my prophets.”
Let the whole earth sing to the LORD ! Each day proclaim the good news that he saves.
Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does.
Great is the LORD ! He is most worthy of praise! He is to be feared above all gods.
The gods of other nations are mere idols, but the LORD made the heavens!
Honor and majesty surround him; strength and joy fill his dwelling.
O nations of the world, recognize the LORD, recognize that the LORD is glorious and strong.
Give to the LORD the glory he deserves! Bring your offering and come into his presence. Worship the LORD in all his holy splendor.
Let all the earth tremble before him. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken.
Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice! Tell all the nations, “The LORD reigns!”
Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise! Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy!
Let the trees of the forest sing for joy before the LORD, for he is coming to judge the earth.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.
Cry out, “Save us, O God of our salvation! Gather and rescue us from among the nations, so we can thank your holy name and rejoice and praise you.”
Praise the LORD, the God of Israel, who lives from everlasting to everlasting! And all the people shouted “Amen!” and praised the LORD .
David arranged for Asaph and his fellow Levites to serve regularly before the Ark of the LORD ’s Covenant, doing whatever needed to be done each day.
This group included Obed-edom (son of Jeduthun), Hosah, and sixty-eight other Levites as gatekeepers.
Meanwhile, David stationed Zadok the priest and his fellow priests at the Tabernacle of the LORD at the place of worship in Gibeon, where they continued to minister before the LORD .
