Psalm 105


Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name;

proclaim his deeds among the peoples.ab

Sing to him, sing praise to him;

tell about all his wondrous works!ac

Boast in his holy name;

let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.ad

Seek the Lord and his strength;

seek his face always.ae

Remember the wondrous works he has done,

his wonders, and the judgments he has pronounced,A,a

you offspring of Abraham his servant,

Jacob’s descendants—his chosen ones.b

He is the Lord our God;

his judgments govern the whole earth.c

He remembers his covenant forever,

the promise he ordained

for a thousand generationsd

the covenant he made with Abraham,

sworeB to Isaac,e

10 and confirmed to Jacob as a decree

and to Israel as a permanent covenant:f

11 “I will give the land of Canaan to you

as your inherited portion.”g

12 When they were few in number,

very few indeed,

and resident aliens in Canaan,h

13 wandering from nation to nation

and from one kingdom to another,i

14 he allowed no one to oppress them;

he rebuked kings on their behalf:j

15 “Do not touch my anointed ones,k

or harm my prophets.”l

16 He called down famine against the land

and destroyed the entire food supply.m

17 He had sent a man ahead of them—

Joseph, who was sold as a slave.n

18 They hurt his feet with shackles;

his neck was put in an iron collar.o

19 Until the time his prediction came true,

the word of the Lord tested him.p

20 The king sent for him and released him;

the ruler of peoples set him free.q

21 He made him master of his household,

ruler over all his possessionsr

22 bindingC his officials at will

and instructing his elders.s

23 Then Israel went to Egypt;

Jacob lived as an alien in the land of Ham.* t

24 The LordE made his people very fruitful;

he made them more numerous than their foes,u

25 whose hearts he turned to hate his people

and to deal deceptively with his servants.v

26 He sent Moses his servant,

and Aaron, whom he had chosen.w

27 They performed his miraculous signs among them

and wonders in the land of Ham.x

28 He sent darkness, and it became dark—

for did they not defy his commands?y

29 He turned their water into blood

and caused their fish to die.z

30 Their land was overrun with frogs,

even in their royal chambers.aa

31 He spoke, and insects cameab

gnats throughout their country.ac

32 He gave them hail for rain,

and lightning throughout their land.ad

33 He struck their vines and fig trees

and shattered the trees of their territory.ae

34 He spoke, and locusts came—

young locusts without number.

35 They devoured all the vegetation in their land

and consumed the produce of their land.af

36 He struck all the firstborn in their land,

all their first progeny.ag

37 Then he brought Israel out with silver and gold,

and no one among his tribes stumbled.ah

38 Egypt was glad when they left,

for the dread of IsraelF had fallen on them.ai

39 He spread a cloud as a covering

and gave a fire to light up the night.aj

40 They asked, and he brought quail

and satisfied them with bread from heaven.ak

41 He opened a rock, and water gushed out;

it flowed like a stream in the desert.a

42 For he remembered his holy promise

to Abraham his servant.b

43 He brought his people out with rejoicing,

his chosen ones with shouts of joy.c

44 He gave them the lands of the nations,

and they inherited

what other peoples had worked for.d

45 All this happened

so that they might keep his statutes

and obey his instructions.e



About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
