A Tent for the Ark

1 And they brought in the ark of God and aplaced it inside the tent which David had pitched for it, and they offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before God. 2 When David had finished offering the burnt offering and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD. 3 He distributed to everyone of Israel, both man and woman, to everyone a loaf of bread and a portion [of meat] and a raisin cake.

[1] a1Ch 15:1

Psalm of Thanksgiving

  8 aOh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name;
  bMake known His deeds among the peoples.
  9 Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
  ISpeak of all His IIwonders.
  10 IGlory in His holy name;
  Let the heart of those who seek the LORD be glad.
  11 aSeek the LORD and His strength;
  Seek His face continually.
  12 aRemember His wonderful deeds which He has done,
  bHis marvels and the judgments from His mouth,
  13 O seed of Israel His servant,
  Sons of Jacob, His chosen ones!
  14 He is the LORD our God;
  aHis judgments are in all the earth.
  15 Remember His covenant forever,
  The word which He commanded to a thousand generations,
  16 a[The covenant] which He made with Abraham,
  And His oath to Isaac.
  17 aHe also confirmed it to Jacob for a statute,
  To Israel as an everlasting covenant,
  18 Saying, “aTo you I will give the land of Canaan,
  As the portion of your inheritance.”
  19 aWhen they were only a few in number,
  Very few, and strangers in it,
  20 And they wandered about from nation to nation,
  And from [one] kingdom to another people,
  21 He permitted no man to oppress them,
  And aHe reproved kings for their sakes, [saying],
  22 “Do not touch My anointed ones,
  And ado My prophets no harm.”
  23 aSing to the LORD, all the earth;
  Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day.
  24 Tell of His glory among the nations,
  His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.
  25 For agreat is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
  He also is bto be feared above all gods.
  26 For all the gods of the peoples are Iaidols,
  bBut 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 families of the peoples,
  Ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
  29 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name;
  Bring an Ioffering, and come before Him;
  aWorship the LORD in IIholy array.
  30 Tremble before Him, all the earth;
  Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved.
  31 aLet the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
  And let them say among the nations, “bThe LORD reigns.”
  32 aLet the sea Iroar, and IIall it contains;
  Let the field exult, and all that is in it.
  33 Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the LORD;
  For He is coming to judge the earth.
  34 aO give thanks to the LORD, for [He is] good;
  For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
  35 aThen say, “Save us, O God of our salvation,
  And gather us and deliver us from the nations,
  To give thanks to Your holy name,
  And Iglory in Your praise.”
  36 aBlessed be the LORD, the God of Israel,
  From everlasting even to everlasting.
Then all the people bsaid, “Amen,” and praised the LORD.

David's festival sacrifice.

1 ¶ So they brought the ark of God, and set it in the midst of the tent that David had pitched for it: and they offered burnt sacrifices and peace offerings before God. 2 And when David had made an end of offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD. 3 And he dealt to every one of Israel, both man and woman, to every one a loaf of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon [of wine].

The psalm of thanksgiving.

7 ¶ Then on that day David delivered first [this psalm] to thank the LORD into the hand of Asaph and his brethren. 8 Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people. 9 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works. 10 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. 11 Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually. 12 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth; 13 O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones. 14 He [is] the LORD our God; his judgments [are] in all the earth. 15 Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word [which] he commanded to a thousand generations; 16 [Even of the covenant] which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac; 17 And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, [and] to Israel [for] an everlasting covenant, 18 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance; 19 When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it. 20 And [when] they went from nation to nation, and from [one] kingdom to another people; 21 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes, 22 [Saying], Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm. 23 Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation. 24 Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations. 25 For great [is] the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also [is] to be feared above all gods. 26 For all the gods of the people [are] idols: but the LORD made the heavens. 27 Glory and honour [are] in his presence; strength and gladness [are] in his place. 28 Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength. 29 Give unto the LORD the glory [due] unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. 30 Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved. 31 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let [men] say among the nations, The LORD reigneth. 32 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: let the fields rejoice, and all that [is] therein. 33 Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the LORD, because he cometh to judge the earth. 34 O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good; for his mercy [endureth] for ever. 35 And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, [and] glory in thy praise. 36 Blessed [be] the LORD God of Israel for ever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised the LORD.

And the sons of Jeduthun [were] porters. 43 And all the people departed every man to his house: and David returned to bless his house.
