1 Chronicles 16:8-22 Good News Translation (GNT)
A Song of Praise
8 Give thanks to the Lord, proclaim his greatness;
tell the nations what he has done.
9 Sing praise to the Lord;
tell the wonderful things he has done.
10 Be glad that we belong to him;
let all who worship him rejoice!
11 Go to the Lord for help,
and worship him continually.
12-13 You descendants of Jacob, God's servant,
descendants of Israel, whom God chose,
remember the miracles that God performed
and the judgments that he gave.
14 The Lord is our God;
his commands are for all the world.
15 Never forget God's covenant,
which he made to last forever,
16 the covenant he made with Abraham,
the promise he made to Isaac.
17 The Lord made a covenant with Jacob,
one that will last forever.
18 “I will give you the land of Canaan,” he said.
“It will be your own possession.”
19 God's people were few in number,
strangers in the land of Canaan.
20 They wandered from country to country,
from one kingdom to another.
21 But God let no one oppress them;
to protect them, he warned the kings:
22 “Don't harm my chosen servants;
do not touch my prophets.”
