Original text and translations
I Chron.29:10b Blessed be thou, O Lord God... for ever and ever.
I Chron.29:11 Thine, O Lord is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is Thine;
Thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as Head above all.
I Chron.29:12a Both riches and honour come of Thee,
I Chron.29:14b and of Thine own do we give unto Thee.
