Psalm 105

105:1–15pp—1Ch 16:8–22

Give praise to the Lord,s proclaim his name;t

make known among the nations what he has done.

Sing to him,u sing praise to him;v

tell of all his wonderful acts.w

Glory in his holy name;x

let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.

Look to the Lord and his strength;

seek his facey always.

Remember the wondersz he has done,

his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,a

you his servants, the descendants of Abraham,b

his chosenc ones, the children of Jacob.

He is the Lord our God;

his judgments are in all the earth.

8 He remembers his covenantd forever,

the promise he made, for a thousand generations,

the covenant he made with Abraham,e

the oath he swore to Isaac.

10 He confirmed itf to Jacob as a decree,

to Israel as an everlasting covenant:g

11 “To you I will give the land of Canaanh

as the portion you will inherit.”i

12 When they were but few in number,j

few indeed, and strangers in it,k

13 they wandered from nation to nation,l

from one kingdom to another.

14 He allowed no one to oppressm them;

for their sake he rebuked kings:n

15 “Do not toucho my anointed ones;

do my prophetsp no harm.”

16 He called down famineq on the land

and destroyed all their supplies of food;

17 and he sent a man before them—

Joseph, sold as a slave.r

18 They bruised his feet with shackles,s

his neck was put in irons,

19 till what he foretoldt came to pass,

till the wordu of the Lord proved him true.

20 The king sent and released him,

the ruler of peoples set him free.v

21 He made him master of his household,

ruler over all he possessed,

22 to instruct his princesw as he pleased

and teach his elders wisdom.x

23 Then Israel entered Egypt;y

Jacob residedz as a foreigner in the land of Ham.a

24 The Lord made his people very fruitful;

he made them too numerousb for their foes,

25 whose hearts he turnedc to hate his people,

to conspired against his servants.

26 He sent Mosese his servant,

and Aaron,f whom he had chosen.g

27 They performedh his signsi among them,

his wondersj in the land of Ham.

28 He sent darknessk and made the land dark—

for had they not rebelled againstl his words?

29 He turned their waters into blood,m

causing their fish to die.n

30 Their land teemed with frogs,o

which went up into the bedrooms of their rulers.

31 He spoke,p and there came swarms of flies,q

and gnatsr throughout their country.

32 He turned their rain into hail,s

with lightning throughout their land;

33 he struck down their vinest and fig treesu

and shattered the trees of their country.

34 He spoke,v and the locusts came,w

grasshoppersx without number;y

35 they ate up every green thing in their land,

ate up the produce of their soil.

36 Then he struck down all the firstbornz in their land,

the firstfruits of all their manhood.

37 He brought out Israel, laden with silver and gold,a

and from among their tribes no one faltered.

38 Egypt was glad when they left,

because dread of Israelb had fallen on them.

39 He spread out a cloudc as a covering,

and a fire to give light at night.d

40 They asked,e and he brought them quail;f

he fed them well with the bread of heaven.g

41 He opened the rock,h and water gushed out;

it flowed like a river in the desert.

42 For he remembered his holy promisei

given to his servant Abraham.

43 He brought out his people with rejoicing,j

his chosen ones with shouts of joy;

44 he gave them the lands of the nations,k

and they fell heir to what others had toiledl for—

45 that they might keep his precepts

and observe his laws.m

Praise the Lord.a n
