tithes and offerings

1 Chroniques 29 Louis Segond (LSG)

12 C’est de toi que viennent la richesse et la gloire, c’est toi qui domines sur tout, c’est dans ta main que sont la force et la puissance, et c’est ta main qui a le pouvoir d’agrandir et d’affermir toutes choses.

13 Maintenant, ô notre Dieu, nous te louons, et nous célébrons ton nom glorieux.

14 Car qui suis-je et qui est mon peuple, pour que nous puissions te faire volontairement ces offrandes? Tout vient de toi, et nous recevons de ta main ce que nous t’offrons.

David’s Prayer

1 Chronicles 29

10 David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly, saying,

“Praise be to you, Lord,
the God of our father Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.
11 Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, Lord, is the kingdom;
you are exalted as head over all.
12 Wealth and honor come from you;
you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
to exalt and give strength to all.
13 Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name.

14 “But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.
