Context16The covenant which He made with Abraham,
And His oath to Isaac.
17He also confirmed it to Jacob for a statute,
18Saying, To you I will give the land of Canaan,
19When they were only a few in number,
20And they wandered about from nation to nation,
21He permitted no man to oppress them,
22Do not touch My anointed ones,
23Sing to the LORD, all the earth;
24Tell of His glory among the nations,
25For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
26For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
27Splendor and majesty are before Him,
28Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples,
29Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name;
30Tremble before Him, all the earth;
31Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
32Let the sea roar, and all it contains;
33Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the LORD;
34O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
35Then say, Save us, O God of our salvation,
36Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel,
Worship before the Ark

43Then all the people departed each to his house, and David returned to bless his household.
