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

1Den gracias al Señor, invoquen su nombre;
    den a conocer sus obras entre las naciones.
Cántenle, entónenle salmos;
    hablen de todas sus maravillas.
Siéntanse orgullosos de su santo nombre;
    alégrese el corazón de los que buscan al Señor.
Recurran al Señor y a su fuerza;
    busquen siempre su rostro.

Recuerden las maravillas que ha realizado,
    sus señales, y los decretos que ha emitido.
¡Ustedes, descendientes de Abraham su siervo!
    ¡Ustedes, hijos de Jacob, elegidos suyos!
Él es el Señor, nuestro Dios;
    en toda la tierra están sus decretos.

Él siempre tiene presente su pacto,
    la palabra que ordenó para mil generaciones.
Es el pacto que hizo con Abraham,
    el juramento que le hizo a Isaac.
10 Se lo confirmó a Jacob como un decreto,
    a Israel como un pacto eterno,
11 cuando dijo: «Te daré la tierra de Canaán
    como la herencia que te toca».

12 Aun cuando eran pocos en número,
    unos cuantos extranjeros en la tierra
13 que andaban siempre de nación en nación
    y de reino en reino,
14 a nadie permitió que los oprimiera,
    sino que por ellos reprendió a los reyes:
15 «No toquen a mis ungidos;
    no hagan daño a mis profetas».

16 Dios provocó hambre en la tierra
    y destruyó todos sus trigales.[a]
17 Pero envió delante de ellos a un hombre:
    a José, vendido como esclavo.
18 Le sujetaron los pies con grilletes,
    entre hierros le aprisionaron el cuello,
19 hasta que se cumplió lo que él predijo
    y la palabra del Señor probó que él era veraz.
20 El rey ordenó ponerlo en libertad,
    el gobernante de los pueblos lo dejó libre.
21 Le dio autoridad sobre toda su casa
    y lo puso a cargo de cuanto poseía,
22 con pleno poder para instruir[b] a sus príncipes
    e impartir sabiduría a sus ancianos.

23 Entonces Israel vino a Egipto;
    Jacob fue extranjero en el país de Cam.
24 El Señor hizo que su pueblo se multiplicara;
    lo hizo más numeroso que sus adversarios,
25 a quienes trastornó para que odiaran a su pueblo
    y se confabularan contra sus siervos.
26 Envió a su siervo Moisés,
    y a Aarón, a quien había escogido,
27 y estos hicieron señales milagrosas entre ellos,
    ¡maravillas en el país de Cam!
28 Envió tinieblas, y la tierra se oscureció,
    pero ellos no atendieron[c] a sus palabras.
29 Convirtió en sangre sus aguas
    y causó la muerte de sus peces.
30 Todo Egipto[d] se infestó de ranas,
    ¡hasta las habitaciones de sus reyes!
31 Habló Dios, e invadieron todo el país
    enjambres de moscas y mosquitos.
32 Convirtió la lluvia en granizo,
    y lanzó relámpagos sobre su tierra;
33 derribó sus vides y sus higueras,
    y en todo el país hizo astillas los árboles.
34 Dio una orden, y llegaron las langostas,
    ¡infinidad de saltamontes!
35 Arrasaron con toda la vegetación del país,
    devoraron los frutos de sus campos.
36 Hirió de muerte a todos los primogénitos del país,
    a las primicias de sus descendientes.
37 Sacó a los israelitas cargados de oro y plata,
    y no hubo entre sus tribus nadie que tropezara.

38 Los egipcios se alegraron de su partida,
    pues el miedo a los israelitas los dominaba.
39 El Señor les dio sombra con una nube,
    y con fuego los alumbró de noche.
40 Pidió el pueblo comida, y les envió codornices;
    los sació con pan del cielo.
41 Abrió la roca, y brotó agua
    que corrió por el desierto como un río.

42 Ciertamente Dios se acordó de su santa promesa,
    la que hizo a su siervo Abraham.
43 Sacó a su pueblo, a sus escogidos,
    en medio de gran alegría y de gritos jubilosos.
44 Les entregó las tierras que poseían las naciones;
    heredaron el fruto del trabajo de otros pueblos
45 para que ellos observaran sus preceptos
    y pusieran en práctica sus leyes.

¡Aleluya! ¡Alabado sea el Señor!
