Psalm 106:13–31

13 They quickly aforgot His works;

They bdid not wait for His counsel,

14 But acraved intensely in the wilderness,

And 1btempted God in the desert.

15 So He agave them their request,

But bsent a 1wasting disease among them.

16 When they became aenvious of Moses in the camp,

And of Aaron, the holy one of the Lord,

17 The aearth opened and swallowed up Dathan,

And engulfed the 1company of Abiram.

18 And a afire blazed up in their 1company;

The flame consumed the wicked.

19 They amade a calf in Horeb

And worshiped a molten image.

20 Thus they aexchanged their glory

For the image of an ox that eats grass.

21 They aforgot God their Savior,

Who had done bgreat things in Egypt,

22 1aWonders in the land of Ham

And awesome things by the 2Red Sea.

23 Therefore aHe said that He would destroy them,

Had not bMoses His chosen one stood in the breach before Him,

To turn away His wrath from destroying them.

24 Then they adespised the bpleasant land;

They cdid not believe in His word,

25 But agrumbled in their tents;

They did not listen to the voice of the Lord.

26 Therefore He 1aswore to them

That He would cast them down in the wilderness,

27 And that He would acast their seed among the nations

And bscatter them in the lands.

28 They ajoined themselves also to 1Baal-peor,

And ate bsacrifices offered to the dead.

29 Thus they aprovoked Him to anger with their deeds,

And the plague broke out among them.

30 Then Phinehas astood up and interposed,

And so the bplague was stayed.

31 And it was areckoned to him for righteousness,

To all generations forever.
