1 Chronicles 29:10-14

David Praises the Lord

29:10 David praised the Lord before the entire assembly: 1 

“O Lord God of our father Israel, you deserve praise forevermore! 29:11 O Lord, you are great, mighty, majestic, magnificent, glorious, and sovereign 2  over all the sky and earth! You have dominion and exalt yourself as the ruler 3  of all. 29:12 You are the source of wealth and honor; 4  you rule over all. You possess strength and might to magnify and give strength to all. 5  29:13 Now, our God, we give thanks to you and praise your majestic name!

29:14 “But who am I and who are my people, that we should be in a position to contribute this much? 6  Indeed, everything comes from you, and we have simply given back to you what is yours. 7 

1 tn Heb “assembly, and David said.” The words “and David said” are redundant according to contemporary English style and have not been included in the translation.

2 tn The words “and sovereign” are added in the translation for clarification and for stylistic reasons.

3 tn Heb “head.”

4 tn Heb “wealth and honor [are] from before you.”

5 tn Heb “and in your hand [is] strength and might and in your hand to magnify and to give strength to all.”

6 tn Heb “that we should retain strength to contribute like this.”

7 tn Heb “and from you we have given to you.”
