Amplified Bible

Psalm 105

The Lord’s Wonderful Works in Behalf of Israel.

1O give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the people.

Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
Speak of all His wonderful acts and devoutly praise them.

Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those who seek and require the Lord [as their most essential need] rejoice.

Seek and deeply long for the Lord and His strength [His power, His might];
Seek and deeply long for His face and His presence continually.

Remember [with awe and gratitude] the wonderful things which He has done,
His amazing deeds and the judgments uttered by His mouth [on His enemies, as in Egypt],

O you offspring of Abraham, His servant,
O you sons of Jacob, His chosen ones!

He is the Lord our God;
His judgments are in all the earth.


He has remembered His covenant forever,
The word which He commanded and established to a [a]thousand generations,

The covenant which He made with Abraham,
And His sworn oath to Isaac,
10 
Which He confirmed to Jacob as a statute,
To Israel as an everlasting covenant,
11 
Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan
As the measured portion of your inheritance.”
12 
When there were only a few men in number,
Very few [in fact], and strangers in it;
13 
And they wandered from one nation to another,
From one kingdom to another people,
14 
He allowed no man to oppress them;
He rebuked kings for their sakes, saying,
15 
“Do not touch My anointed ones,
And do My prophets no harm.”

16 
And He called for a famine upon the land [of Egypt];
He [b]cut off every source of bread.
17 
He sent a man before them,
Joseph, who was sold as a slave.
18 
His feet they hurt with shackles;
[c]He was put in chains of iron,
19 
Until the time that his word [of prophecy regarding his brothers] came true,
The word of the Lord tested and refined him.
20 
The king sent and released him,
The ruler of the peoples [of Egypt], and set him free.
21 
He made Joseph lord of his house
And ruler of all his possessions,
22 
To imprison his princes at his will,
That he might teach his elders wisdom.
23 
Israel also came into Egypt;
Thus Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
24 
There the Lord greatly increased [the number of] His people,
And made them more powerful than their enemies.

25 
He turned the heart [of the Egyptians] to hate His people,
To deal craftily with His servants.
26 
He sent Moses His servant,
And Aaron, whom He had chosen.
27 
They exhibited His wondrous signs among them,
Great miracles in the land of Ham (Egypt).
28 
He sent [thick, oppressive] darkness and made the land dark;
And Moses and Aaron did not rebel against His words.
29 
He turned Egypt’s waters into blood
And caused their fish to die.
30 
Their land swarmed with frogs,
Even in the chambers of their kings.
31 
He spoke, and there came swarms of flies
And gnats in all their territory.
32 
He gave them hail for rain,
With flaming fire in their land.
33 
He struck their vines also and their fig trees,
And shattered the [ice-laden] trees of their territory.
34 
He spoke, and the [migratory] locusts came,
And the young locusts, even without number,
35 
And ate up all the vegetation in their land,
And devoured the fruit of their ground.
36 
He also struck down all the firstborn in their land,
The first fruits and chief substance of all their strength.

37 
He brought the sons of Israel out [of Egypt] with silver and gold,
And among their tribes there was not one who stumbled.
38 
Egypt was glad when they departed,
For the dread and fear of them had fallen on the Egyptians.
39 
The Lord spread a cloud as a covering [by day],
And a fire to illumine the night.
40 
The Israelites asked, and He brought quail,
And satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
41 
He opened the rock and water flowed out;
It ran in the dry places like a river.
42 
For He remembered His holy word
To Abraham His servant;
43 
He brought out His people with joy,
And His chosen ones with a joyful shout,
44 
He gave them the lands of the nations [of Canaan],
So that they would possess the fruits of those peoples’ labor,
45 
So that they might observe His precepts
And keep His laws [obediently accepting and honoring and valuing them].
Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)

  1. Psalm 105:8 There were twenty-six recorded generations from Adam to Moses. The ancient rabbis took “thousand” here very literally and maintained that God originally planned to give the Law to the thousandth generation, but He foresaw that they would be wicked, so He declined to create 974 generations and gave the Law to the twenty-sixth generation (Moses) instead.
  2. Psalm 105:16 Lit broke the whole rod of, referring to the fact that bread was stored as ring-shaped loaves on a rod. If the rod was broken, the loaves fell off and were lost or ruined.

Salmos 105

Salmo 105

Dêem graças ao Senhor,
proclamem o seu nome;
divulguem os seus feitos entre as nações.
Cantem para ele e louvem-no;
relatem todas as suas maravilhas.
Gloriem-se no seu santo nome;
alegre-se o coração dos
    que buscam o Senhor.
Recorram ao Senhor e ao seu poder;
busquem sempre a sua presença.
Lembrem-se das maravilhas que ele fez,
dos seus prodígios
    e das sentenças de juízo que pronunciou,
ó descendentes de Abraão, seu servo,
ó filhos de Jacó, seus escolhidos.

Ele é o Senhor, o nosso Deus;
seus decretos são para toda a terra.
Ele se lembra para sempre da sua aliança,
por mil gerações, da palavra que ordenou,
da aliança que fez com Abraão,
do juramento que fez a Isaque.
10 Ele o confirmou como decreto a Jacó,
a Israel como aliança eterna, quando disse:
11 “Darei a você a terra de Canaã,
    a herança que lhe pertence”.

12 Quando ainda eram poucos,
um punhado de peregrinos na terra,
13 e vagueavam de nação em nação,
de um reino a outro,
14 ele não permitiu que ninguém os oprimisse,
mas a favor deles repreendeu reis, dizendo:
15 “Não toquem nos meus ungidos;
    não maltratem os meus profetas”.

16 Ele mandou vir fome sobre a terra
    e destruiu todo o seu sustento;
17 mas enviou um homem adiante deles,
    José, que foi vendido como escravo.
18 Machucaram-lhe os pés com correntes
    e com ferros prenderam-lhe o pescoço,
19 até cumprir-se a sua predição
    e a palavra do Senhor confirmar o que dissera.
20 O rei mandou soltá-lo,
    o governante dos povos o libertou.
21 Ele o constituiu senhor de seu palácio
    e administrador de todos os seus bens,
22 para instruir os seus oficiais como desejasse
    e ensinar a sabedoria às autoridades do rei.

23 Então Israel foi para o Egito,
Jacó viveu como estrangeiro na terra de Cam.
24 Deus fez proliferar o seu povo,
tornou-o mais poderoso
    do que os seus adversários,
25 e mudou o coração deles
para que odiassem o seu povo,
para que tramassem contra os seus servos.
26 Então enviou seu servo Moisés,
e Arão, a quem tinha escolhido,
27 por meio dos quais realizou
    os seus sinais miraculosos
e as suas maravilhas na terra de Cam.
28 Ele enviou trevas, e houve trevas,
e eles não se rebelaram[a] contra as suas palavras.
29 Ele transformou as águas deles em sangue,
causando a morte dos seus peixes.
30 A terra deles ficou infestada de rãs,
até mesmo os aposentos reais.
31 Ele ordenou, e enxames de moscas e piolhos[b]
    invadiram o território deles.
32 Deu-lhes granizo, em vez de chuva,
e raios flamejantes por toda a sua terra;
33 arrasou as suas videiras e figueiras
e destruiu as árvores do seu território.
34 Ordenou, e vieram enxames de gafanhotos,
    gafanhotos inumeráveis,
35 e devoraram toda a vegetação daquela terra,
e consumiram tudo o que a lavoura produziu.
36 Depois matou todos os primogênitos
    da terra deles,
todas as primícias da sua virilidade.

37 Ele tirou de lá Israel,
    que saiu cheio de prata e ouro.
Não havia em suas tribos quem fraquejasse.
38 Os egípcios alegraram-se quando eles saíram,
pois estavam com verdadeiro pavor
    dos israelitas.
39 Ele estendeu uma nuvem para lhes dar sombra,
e fogo para iluminar a noite.
40 Pediram, e ele enviou codornizes,
e saciou-os com pão do céu.
41 Ele fendeu a rocha, e jorrou água,
que escorreu como um rio pelo deserto.
42 Pois ele se lembrou da santa promessa
    que fizera ao seu servo Abraão.
43 Fez o seu povo sair cheio de júbilo,
e os seus escolhidos, com cânticos alegres.
44 Deu-lhes as terras das nações,
e eles tomaram posse
    do fruto do trabalho de outros povos,
45 para que obedecessem aos seus decretos
    e guardassem as suas leis.

Aleluia!
