1 So they brought in the ark of God, and set it in the midst of the tabernacle which David pitched for it; and they offered whole-burnt-offerings and peace-offerings before God. 2 And David finished offering up whole-burnt-offerings and peace-offerings, and blessed the people in the name of the Lord. 3 And he divided to every man of Israel (both men and women), to [every] man one baker’s loaf, and a cake. 4 And he appointed before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, Levites to minister [and] lift up the voice, and to give thanks and praise the Lord God of Israel: 5 Asaph [was] the chief, and next to him Zacharias, Jeiel, Semiramoth, and Jeiel, Mattathias, Eliab, and Banaeas, and Abdedom: and Jeiel sounding with musical instruments, lutes [and] harps, and Asaph with cymbals: 6 and Banaeas and Oziel the priests [sounding] continually with trumpets before the ark of the covenant of God in that day. 7 Then David first gave orders to praise the Lord by the hand of Asaph and his brethren. 8 Song. Give thanks to the Lord, call upon him by his name, make known his designs among the people. 9 Sing [songs] to him, and sing hymns to him, relate to all [people] his wonderful deeds, which the Lord has wrought. 10 Praise his holy name, the heart that seeks his pleasure shall rejoice. 11 Seek the Lord and be strong, seek his face continually. 12 Remember his wonderful works which he has wrought, his wonders, and the judgments of is mouth; 13 [ye] seed of Israel his servants, [ye] seed of Jacob his chosen ones. 14 He [is] the Lord our God; his judgments [are] in all the earth. 15 Let us remember his covenant for ever, his word which he commanded to a thousand generations, 16 which he covenanted with Abraham, and his oath [sworn] to Isaac. 17 He confirmed it to Jacob for an ordinance, to Israel [as] an everlasting covenant, 18 saying, To thee will I give the land of Chanaan, the line of your inheritance: 19 when they were few in number, when they were but little, and dwelt as strangers in it; 20 and went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people. 21 He suffered not a man to oppress them, and he reproved kings for their sakes, 22 saying, Touch not my anointed ones, and deal not wrongfully with my prophets. 23 Sing ye to the Lord, all the earth; proclaim his salvation from day to day. 24 Declare among the nations his glory, his wondrous deeds among all peoples. 25 For the Lord [is] great, and greatly to be praised: he [is] to be feared above all gods. 26 For all the gods of the nations [are] idols; but our God made the heavens. 27 Glory and praise [are] in his presence; strength and rejoicing [are] in his place. 28 Give to the Lord, ye families of the nations, give to the Lord glory and strength. 29 Give to the Lord the glory [belonging] to his name: take gifts and offer [them] before him; and worship the Lord in his holy courts. 30 Let the whole earth fear before him; let the earth be established, and not be moved. 31 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth exult; and let them say among the nations, The Lord reigns. 32 The sea with its fullness shall resound and the tree of the field, and all things in it. 33 Then shall the trees of the wood rejoice before the Lord, for he is come to judge the earth. 34 Give thanks to the Lord, for [it is] good, for his mercy [is] for ever. 35 And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us, and rescue us from among the heathen, that we may praise thy holy name, and glory in thy praises. 36 Blessed [be] the Lord God of Israel from everlasting and to everlasting: And all the people shall say, Amen. So they praised the Lord. 37 And they left there Asaph and his brethren before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, to minister before the ark continually, according to the service of each day: from day to day. 38 And Abdedom and his brethren [were] sixty and eight; and Abdedom the son of Idithun, and Osa, [were] to be door-keepers. 39 And [they appointed] Sadoc the priest, and his brethren the priests, before the tabernacle of the Lord in the high place in Gabaon, 40 to offer up whole-burnt-offerings continually morning and evening, and according to all things written in the law of the Lord, which he commanded the children of Israel by Moses the servant of God. 41 And with him [were] Aeman and Idithun, and the rest chosen out by name to praise the Lord, for his mercy [endures] for ever. 42 And with them [there were] trumpets and cymbals to sound aloud, and musical instruments for the songs of God: and the sons of Idithun [were] at the gate. 43 And all the people went every one to his home: and David returned to bless his house. ΚΑΙ εἰσήνεγκαν τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ ἀπηρείσαντο αὐτὴν ἐν μέσῳ τῆς σκηνῆς, ἧς ἔπηξεν αὐτῇ Δαυίδ, καὶ προσήνεγκαν ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ σωτηρίου ἐναντίον τοῦ Θεοῦ. 2 καὶ συνετέλεσε Δαυὶδ ἀναφέρων ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ σωτηρίου καὶ εὐλόγησε τὸν λαὸν ἐν ὀνόματι Κυρίου. 3 καὶ διεμέρισε παντὶ ἀνδρὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπὸ ἀνδρὸς καὶ ἕως γυναικός, τῷ ἀνδρὶ ἄρτον ἕνα ἀρτοκοπικὸν καὶ ἀμορίτην. 4 καὶ ἔταξε κατὰ πρόσωπον τῆς κιβωτοῦ διαθήκης Κυρίου ἐκ τῶν Λευιτῶν λειτουργοῦντας ἀναφωνοῦντας καὶ ἐξομολογεῖσθαι καὶ αἰνεῖν Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν ᾿Ισραήλ· 5 ᾿Ασὰφ ὁ ἡγούμενος, καὶ δευτερεύων αὐτῷ Ζαχαρίας, ᾿Ιεϊήλ, Σεμιραμώθ, ᾿Ιεϊήλ, Ματταθίας, ᾿Ελιὰβ καὶ Βαναίας, καὶ ᾿Αβδεδὸμ καὶ ᾿Ιεϊὴλ ἐν ὀργάνοις, νάβλαις, κινύραις, καὶ ᾿Ασὰφ ἐν κυμβάλοις ἀναφωνῶν. 6 καὶ Βαναίας καὶ ᾿Οζιὴλ οἱ ἱερεῖς ἐν ταῖς σάλπιγξι διαπαντὸς ἐναντίον τῆς κιβωτοῦ τῆς διαθήκης τοῦ Θεοῦ. 7 ᾿Εν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνη τότε ἔταξε Δαυὶδ ἐν ἀρχῇ τοῦ αἰνεῖν τὸν Κύριον ἐν χειρὶ ᾿Ασὰφ καὶ τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτοῦ. 8 ῼΔΗ. ᾿Εξομολογεῖσθε τῷ Κυρίῳ, ἐπικαλεῖσθε αὐτὸν ἐν ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ, γνωρίσατε ἐν λαοῖς τὰ ἐπιτηδεύματα αὐτοῦ. 9 ᾄσατε αὐτῷ καὶ ὑμνήσατε αὐτῷ, διηγήσασθε πᾶσι τὰ θαυμάσια αὐτοῦ, ἃ ἐποίησε Κύριος. 10 αἰνεῖτε ἐν ὀνόματι ἁγίῳ αὐτοῦ, εὐφρανθήσεται καρδία ζητοῦσα τὴν εὐδοκίαν αὐτοῦ. 11 ζητήσατε τὸν Κύριον καὶ ἰσχύσατε, ζητήσατε τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ διαπαντός. 12 μνημονεύετε τὰ θαυμάσια αὐτοῦ, ἃ ἐποίησε, τέρατα καὶ κρίματα τοῦ στόματος αὐτοῦ. 13 σπέρμα ᾿Ισραὴλ παῖδες αὐτοῦ, υἱοὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἐκλεκτοὶ αὐτοῦ. 14 αὐτὸς Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ τὰ κρίματα αὐτοῦ. 15 μνημονεύων εἰς αἰῶνα διαθήκης αὐτοῦ, λόγον αὐτοῦ, ὃν ἐνετείλατο εἰς χιλίας γενεάς, 16 ὃν διέθετο τῷ ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ τὸν ὅρκον αὐτοῦ τῷ ᾿Ισαάκ· 17 ἔστησεν αὐτὸν τῷ ᾿Ιακὼβ εἰς πρόσταγμα, τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ διαθήκην αἰώνιον 18 λέγων· σοὶ δώσω τὴν γῆν Χαναὰν σχοίνισμα κληρονομίας ὑμῶν. 19 ἐν τῷ γενέσθαι αὐτοὺς ὀλιγοστοὺς ἀριθμῷ ὡς ἐσμικρύνθησαν καὶ παρῴκησαν ἐν αὐτῇ. 20 καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν ἀπὸ ἔθνους εἰς ἔθνος καὶ ἀπὸ βασιλείας εἰς λαὸν ἕτερον. 21 οὐκ ἀφῆκεν ἄνδρα τοῦ δυναστεῦσαι αὐτοὺς καὶ ἤλεγξε περὶ αὐτῶν βασιλεῖς· 22 μὴ ἅψησθε τῶν χριστῶν μου καὶ ἐν τοῖς προφήταις μου μὴ πονηρεύεσθε. 23 ᾄσατε τῷ Κυρίῳ, πᾶσα ἡ γῆ, ἀναγγείλατε ἐξ ἡμέρας εἰς ἡμέραν σωτηρίαν αὐτοῦ. 24 ἐξηγεῖσθε ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσι τὴν δόξαν αὐτοῦ, ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς λαοῖς τὰ θαυμάσια αὐτοῦ. 25 ὅτι μέγας Κύριος καὶ αἰνετὸς σφόδρα, φοβερός ἐστιν ἐπὶ πάντας τοὺς θεούς. 26 ὅτι πάντες οἱ θεοὶ τῶν ἐθνῶν εἴδωλα, καὶ ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν οὐρανοὺς ἐποίησε. 27 δόξα καὶ ἔπαινος κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ, ἰσχὺς καὶ καύχημα ἐν τόπῳ αὐτοῦ. 28 δότε τῷ Κυρίῳ αἱ πατριαὶ τῶν ἐθνῶν, δότε τῷ Κυρίῳ δόξαν καὶ ἰσχύν· 29 δότε τῷ Κυρίῳ δόξαν ὀνόματος αὐτοῦ, λάβετε δῶρα καὶ ἐνέγκατε κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ καὶ προσκυνήσατε Κυρίῳ ἐν αὐλαῖς ἁγίαις αὐτοῦ. 30 φοβηθήτω ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ πᾶσα ἡ γῆ, κατορθωθήτω ἡ γῆ καὶ μὴ σαλευθήτω· 31 εὐφρανθήτω ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ἀγαλλιάσθω ἡ γῆ, καὶ εἰπάτωσαν ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσι· Κύριος βασιλεύων. 32 βομβήσει ἡ θάλασσα σὺν τῷ πληρώματι καὶ ξύλον ἀγροῦ καὶ πάντα τὰ ἐν αὐτῷ· 33 τότε εὐφρανθήσεται τὰ ξύλα τοῦ δρυμοῦ ἀπὸ προσώπου Κυρίου, ὅτι ἦλθε κρῖναι τὴν γῆν. 34 ἐξομολογεῖσθε τῷ Κυρίῳ, ὅτι ἀγαθόν, ὅτι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ. 35 καὶ εἴπατε· σῶσον ἡμᾶς, ὁ Θεὸς τῆς σωτηρίας ἡμῶν, καὶ ἄθροισον ἡμᾶς, καὶ ἐξελοῦ ἡμᾶς ἐκ τῶν ἐθνῶν τοῦ αἰνεῖν τὸ ὄνομα τὸ ἅγιόν σου καὶ καυχᾶσθαι ἐν ταῖς αἰνέσεσί σου. 36 εὐλογημένος Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπὸ τοῦ αἰῶνος καὶ ἕως τοῦ αἰῶνος· καὶ ἐρεῖ πᾶς ὁ λαός· ἀμήν. καὶ ᾔνεσαν τῷ Κυρίῳ. 37 Καὶ κατέλιπον ἐκεῖ ἔναντι τῆς κιβωτοῦ διαθήκης Κυρίου τὸν ᾿Ασὰφ καὶ τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ τοῦ λειτουργεῖν ἐναντίον τῆς κιβωτοῦ διαπαντὸς τὸ τῆς ἡμέρας εἰς ἡμέραν. 38 καὶ ᾿Αβδεδὸμ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ, ἑξήκοντα καὶ ὀκτώ, καὶ ᾿Αβδεδὸμ υἱὸς ᾿Ιδιθοὺν καὶ ᾿Οσσὰ εἰς πυλωρούς. 39 καὶ τὸν Σαδὼκ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ τοὺς ἱερεῖς ἐναντίον τῆς σκηνῆς Κυρίου ἐν Βαμὰ τῇ ἐν Γαβαὼν 40 τοῦ ἀναφέρειν ὁλοκαυτώματα τῷ Κυρίῳ ἐπὶ τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου τῶν ὁλοκαυτωμάτων διαπαντὸς τὸ πρωΐ καὶ τὸ ἑσπέρας καὶ κατὰ πάντα τὰ γεγραμμένα ἐν νόμῳ Κυρίου ὅσα ἐνετείλατο ἐφ᾿ υἱοῖς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν χειρὶ Μωυσῆ τοῦ θεράποντος τοῦ Θεοῦ· 41 καὶ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ Αἰμὰν καὶ ᾿Ιδιθοὺν καὶ οἱ λοιποὶ ἐκλεγέντες ἐπ᾿ ὀνόματος τοῦ αἰνεῖν τὸν Κύριον, ὅτι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ, 42 καὶ μετ᾿ αὐτῶν σάλπιγγες καὶ κύμβαλα τοῦ ἀναφωνεῖν καὶ ὄργανα τῶν ᾠδῶν τοῦ Θεοῦ, οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιδιθοὺν εἰς τὴν πύλην. 43 καὶ ἐπορεύθη πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἕκαστος εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐπέστρεψε Δαυὶδ τοῦ εὐλογῆσαι τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ.
