16:7 That day David first gave to Asaph and his colleagues this song of thanks to the Lord:
Call on his name!
Make known his accomplishments among the nations!
Tell about all his miraculous deeds!
Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
Seek his presence2 continually!
his mighty acts and the judgments he decreed,3
you descendants of Jacob, God’s6 chosen ones!
he carries out judgment throughout the earth.7
16:15 Remember8 continually his covenantal decree,
the promise he made9 to a thousand generations—
16:16 the promise10 he made to Abraham,
the promise he made by oath to Isaac!11
to Israel as a lasting promise,12
as the portion of your inheritance.”
just a very few, and foreign residents within it,
and from one kingdom to another.13
he disciplined kings for their sake,
16:22 saying,14 “Don’t touch my anointed ones!
Don’t harm my prophets!”
Announce every day15 how he delivers!
tell16 all the nations about his miraculous deeds!
he is more awesome than17 all gods.
16:26 For all the gods of the nations are worthless,18
but the Lord made the heavens.19
16:27 Majestic splendor emanates from him,20
he is the source of strength and joy.21
ascribe to the Lord splendor and strength!
16:29 Ascribe to the Lord the splendor he deserves!22
Bring an offering and enter his presence!
Worship the Lord in holy attire!23
The world is established, it cannot be moved.
Let the nations say,24 ‘The Lord reigns!’
Let the fields and everything in them celebrate!
for he comes to judge the earth!
and his loyal love endures.25
16:35 Say this prayer:26 “Deliver us, O God who delivers us!
Gather us! Rescue us from the nations!
Then we will give thanks27 to your holy name,
and boast about your praiseworthy deeds.”28
in the future and forevermore.29
Then all the people said, “We agree!30 Praise the Lord!”
