Psalm 106:32–48

32 They also aprovoked Him to wrath at the waters of 1Meribah,

So that it bwent hard with Moses on their account;

33 Because they awere rebellious against 1His Spirit,

He spoke rashly with his lips.

34 They adid not destroy the peoples,

As bthe Lord commanded them,

35 But athey mingled with the nations

And learned their 1practices,

36 And aserved their idols,

bWhich became a snare to them.

37 They even asacrificed their sons and their daughters to the bdemons,

38 And shed ainnocent blood,

The blood of their bsons and their daughters,

Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;

And the land was cpolluted with the blood.

39 Thus they became aunclean in their 1practices,

And bplayed the harlot in their deeds.

40 Therefore the aanger of the Lord was kindled against His people

And He babhorred His 1cinheritance.

41 Then aHe gave them into the hand of the 1nations,

And those who hated them ruled over them.

42 Their enemies also aoppressed them,

And they were subdued under their 1power.

43 Many times He would adeliver them;

They, however, were rebellious in their bcounsel,

And so csank down in their iniquity.

44 Nevertheless He looked upon their distress

When He aheard their cry;

45 And He aremembered His covenant for their sake,

And 1brelented caccording to the greatness of His lovingkindness.

46 He also made them aobjects of compassion

In the presence of all their captors.

47 aSave us, O Lord our God,

And bgather us from among the nations,

To give thanks to Your holy name

And 1cglory in Your praise.

48 aBlessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,

From everlasting even to everlasting.

And let all the people say, “Amen.”

1Praise 2the Lord!
