16 Thus they brought the ark of the [true] God in+ and placed it inside the tent that David had pitched for it;+ and they began to present burnt offerings and communion sacrifices before the [true] God.*+ 2 When David finished offering up the burnt offering+ and the communion sacrifices,+ he went on to bless+ the people in the name of Jehovah.+ 3 Further, he apportioned+ to all the Israelites, man as well as woman, to each one a round loaf of bread and a date cake and a raisin cake. 4 Then he put before the ark of Jehovah some of the Levites+ as ministers,*+ both to call to remembrance+ and to thank+ and praise+ Jehovah the God of Israel, 5 Aʹsaph+ the head, and second to him Zech·a·riʹah, [and] Je·iʹel and She·mirʹa·moth and Je·hiʹel and Mat·ti·thiʹah and E·liʹab and Be·naiʹah and Oʹbed-eʹdom and Je·iʹel,+ with instruments of the string type and with harps,+ and Aʹsaph+ with the cymbals playing aloud,+ 6 and Be·naiʹah and Ja·ha·ziʹel the priests with the trumpets+ constantly before the ark of the covenant of the [true] God.
Make his deeds known among the peoples!+
YOU sons of Jacob, his chosen ones.+
The word that he commanded, to a thousand generations,+
And his sworn statement to Isaac.+
As an indefinitely lasting covenant even to Israel,+
As the allotment of YOUR inheritance.’+
But on their account he reproved kings,+
And to my prophets do nothing bad.’+
24 Relate among the nations his glory,
Among all the peoples his wonderful acts.
Carry a gift and come in before him.+
Bow down to Jehovah in holy adornment.+
30 Be in severe pains on account of him, all [YOU people of] the earth!
Also the productive land* is firmly established:
Never will it be made to totter.+
And let them say among the nations, ‘Jehovah himself has become king!’+
For he has come to judge the earth.+
And collect us together and deliver us from the nations,+
37 Then he left there before the ark of the covenant of Jehovah Aʹsaph+ and his brothers to minister+ before the Ark constantly, according to the requirement of each day;+ 38 and Oʹbed-eʹdom and his brothers, sixty-eight, and Oʹbed-eʹdom the son of Je·duʹthun and Hoʹsah as gatekeepers; 39 and Zaʹdok+ the priest and his brothers the priests before the tabernacle of Jehovah on the high place that was at Gibʹe·on,+ 40 to offer up burnt offerings to Jehovah on the altar of burnt offering constantly morning and evening and for all that is written in the law of Jehovah that he laid in command upon Israel;+ 41 and with them Heʹman+ and Je·duʹthun and the rest of the select men that were designated+ by names to thank Jehovah,+ because “to time indefinite is his loving-kindness”;+ 42 and with them Heʹman+ and Je·duʹthun,+ to sound forth the trumpets+ and cymbals and instruments of the song of the [true] God; and the sons+ of Je·duʹthun at the gate. 43 And all the people proceeded to go each one to his own house.+ Accordingly David went around to bless his own house.
