and the priests Benaiah and Jahaziel were to blow trumpets regularly, before the ark of the covenant of God.
Then on that day David first appointed the singing of praises to the Lord by Asaph and his kindred.
O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known his deeds among the peoples.
Sing to him, sing praises to him, tell of all his wonderful works.
Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his presence continually.
Remember the wonderful works he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered,
O offspring of his servant Israel, children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
He is the Lord our God; his judgments are in all the earth.
Remember his covenant forever, the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,
the covenant that he made with Abraham, his sworn promise to Isaac,
which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute, to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
saying, "To you I will give the land of Canaan as your portion for an inheritance."
When they were few in number, of little account, and strangers in the land,
wandering from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people,
he allowed no one to oppress them; he rebuked kings on their account,
saying, "Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm."
Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples.
