“Remember the Wonders He Has Done”

1 Chronicles 16:12 “Remember the wonders he has done,”
1 Chronicles 16:4-7, “He appointed some of the Levites to minister before the ark of the Lord, to extol, thank, and praise the Lord, the God of Israel: 5 Asaph was the chief, and next to him in rank were Zechariah, then Jaaziel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Mattithiah, Eliab, Benaiah, Obed-Edom and Jeiel. They were to play the lyres and harps, Asaph was to sound the cymbals, 6 and Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests were to blow the trumpets regularly before the ark of the covenant of God. 7 That day David first appointed Asaph and his associates to give praise to the Lord in this manner:”

his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.

his judgments are in all the earth. 1 Chronicles 16:12-14 (NIV)

c) 15 He remembers his covenant forever,
the promise he made, for a thousand generations,

as the portion you will inherit.”
