The song of the Ark of the Covenant (1 Chr 16:14-16:18)

“He is Yahweh our God.

His judgments are in all the earth.

He is mindful of his covenant forever.

The word that he commanded,

For a thousand generations,

The covenant that he made with Abraham,

His sworn promise to Isaac,

Which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute,

To Israel as an everlasting covenant,

Saying,

To you I will give the land of Canaan,

As your portion for an inheritance.”

Whether by King David or Asaph, the Gershonite Levite, this hymn or psalm continues almost word for word from Psalm 105, verses 7-11. In plain clear language, Yahweh is our God. There can be no doubt. His judgments guide us and all things on earth. He has made a covenant for 1,000 generations, 40,000 years. This everlasting covenant was first made with Abraham, renewed with Isaac and confirmed with Jacob. These are the statutes that we are to follow. Canaan is a portion of our inheritance.
