1 †Praise ye the Lord.
cFor his mercy endureth for ever.
Who can shew forth all his praise?
4 gRemember me, O Lord, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people:
O visit me with thy salvation;
5 That I may see the good of hthy chosen,
That I may rejoice in the gladness of ithy nation,
That I may glory with thine inheritance.
7 Our fathers ounderstood not thy wonders in Egypt;
They premembered not the multitude of thy mercies;
8 Nevertheless he saved them sfor his name’s sake,
That he tmight make his mighty power to be known.
So yhe led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.
10 And zhe saved them from the hand of him that hated them,
And aredeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
11 And bthe waters covered their enemies:
cThere was not one of them left.
12 Then dbelieved they his words;
They dsang his praise.
They fwaited not for his counsel:
15 And jhe gave them their request;
But sent kleanness into their soul.
16 lThey envied Moses also in the camp,
And mAaron the saint of the Lord.
17 nThe earth opened and swallowed up Dathan,
18 And pa fire was kindled in their company;
And worshipped the molten image.
20 Thus uthey changed their glory
Into xthe similitude of an ox that eateth grass.
21 They yforgat God their saviour,
Which had done zgreat things in Egypt;
22 Wondrous works in the land aof Ham,
To turn away his wrath, glest he should destroy them.
They ibelieved not his word:
And hearkened not unto the voice of the Lord.
26 Therefore mhe lifted up his hand against them,
†To overthrow them in the wilderness:
27 †To overthrow their seed also among the nations,
And to nscatter them in the lands.
29 Thus they provoked him to anger with stheir inventions:
And the plague brake in upon them.
And so tthe plague was stayed.
31 And wthat was counted unto him for righteousness
Unto all generations for evermore.
zSo that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:
33 Because they aprovoked his spirit,
34 dThey did not destroy the nations,
Concerning whom ethe Lord commanded them:
35 fBut were mingled among the heathen,
And learned their works.
36 And gthey served their idols:
hWhich were a snare unto them.
37 Yea, ithey sacrificed their sons
And their daughters unto kdevils,
Even the blood of their sons and of their daughters,
iWhom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan:
And lthe land was polluted with blood.
39 Thus were they mdefiled with their own works,
Insomuch that he abhorred qhis own inheritance.
And they that hated them ruled over them.
42 Their enemies also soppressed them,
And they were tbrought into subjection under their hand.
43 uMany times did he deliver them;
And were ||brought low for their iniquity.
44 Nevertheless he regarded xtheir affliction,
45 And he aremembered for them his covenant,
Of all those that carried them captives.
47 fSave us, O Lord our God,
And ggather us from among the heathen,
To give thanks unto thy holy name,
And to triumph in thy praise.
48 hBlessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting:
†Praise ye the Lord.
