8 aOh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name;
bMake known His deeds among the peoples.
10 1Glory in His holy name;
Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad.
11 aSeek the Lord and His strength;
Seek His face continually.
12 aRemember His wonderful deeds which He has done,
bHis marvels and the judgments from His mouth,
Sons of Jacob, His chosen ones!
aHis judgments are in all the earth.
The word which He commanded to a thousand generations,
16 aThe covenant which He made with Abraham,
And His oath to Isaac.
17 aHe also confirmed it to Jacob for a statute,
To Israel as an everlasting covenant,
18 Saying, “aTo you I will give the land of Canaan,
As the portion of your inheritance.”
19 aWhen they were only a few in number,
Very few, and strangers in it,
And from one kingdom to another people,
And aHe reproved kings for their sakes, saying,
And ado My prophets no harm.”
