The First Book of the Chronicles

Chapter 16


So they brought the ark of God, and set it in the midst of the tent, which David had pitched for it : and they offered holocausts, and peace offerings before God.

Asaph the chief, and next after him Zacharias: moreover Jahiel, and Semiramoth, and Jehiel, and Mathathias, and Eliab, and Banaias, and Obededom: and Jehiel over the instruments of psaltery, and harps: and Asaph sounded with cymbals:


But Banaias, and Jaziel the priests, to sound the trumpet continually before the ark of the covenant of the Lord.

He is the Lord our God: his judgments are in all the earth.
