1 Chr 16:1-43
The ark was brought to Jerusalem successfully, and also set it up in the tent pitched for it. Sacrifices were made along with offerings. David then blessed all the people and gave everyone of them a loaf of bread, meat and wine.
David the beautiful psalmist of Israel then composed a psalm of thanks to the Lord. It was a beautiful psalm that talks of the wondrous works of God and the need to give him thanks. He sand about God’s covenant with the fathers, the promise of a new land in Canaan, and how God brought his people safely into that land, not allowing them to be touched or harmed by kings.
The whole song is found below, we all need to give thanks to God, when we think deep, we find out that he really does deserve all our praise. Selah!
