And when David had finished offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD,
and distributed to all Israel, both men and women, to each a loaf of bread, a portion of meat, and a cake of raisins.
Moreover he appointed certain of the Levites as ministers before the ark of the LORD, to invoke, to thank, and to praise the LORD, the God of Israel.
Asaph was the chief, and second to him were Zechari'ah, Je-i'el, Shemi'ramoth, Jehi'el, Mattithi'ah, Eli'ab, Benai'ah, O'bed-e'dom, and Je-i'el, who were to play harps and lyres; Asaph was to sound the cymbals,
and Benai'ah and Jaha'ziel the priests were to blow trumpets continually, before the ark of the covenant of God.
Then on that day David first appointed that thanksgiving be sung to the LORD by Asaph and his brethren.
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 that he has done, the wonders he wrought, the judgments he uttered,
