King James Version

Psalm 105

1O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.

Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.

Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.

Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore.

Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.

He is the Lord our God: his judgments are in all the earth.

He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.

Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;

10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:

11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:

12 When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it.

13 When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people;

14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;

15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

16 Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread.

17 He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:

18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:

19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the Lord tried him.

20 The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.

21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:

22 To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.

23 Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.

24 And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.

25 He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants.

26 He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen.

27 They shewed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.

28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word.

29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.

30 Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.

31 He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all their coasts.

32 He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.

33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts.

34 He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and that without number,

35 And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.

36 He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.

37 He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.

38 Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them.

39 He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night.

40 The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river.

42 For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant.

43 And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness:

44 And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people;

45 That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the Lord.

Salme 105

Guds undere gennem Israels historie

1Sig tak til Herren og giv ham ære!
    Forkynd hans undere for alle folkeslag!
Syng og spil til hans ære,
    tænk på alle de mirakler, han har udført.
Glæd jer over hans herlighed.
    Lad alle, der kender ham, fryde sig.
Søg hjælp hos Herren og hans styrke,
    hold jer altid nær til ham.
Tænk på de fantastiske ting, han har gjort,
    alle de undere, han har udført.
I er jo børn af Guds tjener, Abraham,
    I er de udvalgte efterkommere af Jakob.[a]
Han er Herren, vor Gud,
    han hersker over hele jorden.
Han holder altid sine løfter,
    er trofast gennem tusind generationer.
Han står bag sin pagt med Abraham,
    det løfte, han højtideligt afgav til Isak.
10 Han bekræftede det overfor Jakob
    som en vedvarende pagt med Israels folk:
11 „Jeg giver jer Kanaʼans land,
    det skal være jeres særlige ejendom.”
12 Det sagde han, da de endnu var få,
    en lille flok fremmede i Kanaʼans land.
13 De vandrede fra land til land,
    fra det ene rige til det andet.
14 Men han tillod ingen at skade dem,
    han advarede konger om at holde sig væk.
15 „Rør ikke mine udvalgte,
    gør ikke mine profeter fortræd!”
16 Han sendte hungersnød over Kanaʼans land,
    gjorde ende på alle deres forsyninger.
17 Han sendte en mand i forvejen til Egypten.
    Det var Josef, der blev solgt som slave.
18 I fængslet blev hans fødder lagt i lænker,
    om halsen fik han en ring af jern,
19 indtil hans profeti blev opfyldt,
    og det viste sig, at Herren talte sandt.
20 Da fik Farao ham løsladt,
    Egyptens konge satte ham i frihed.
21 Han fik ansvar for Faraos finanser,
    hans paladser, hans gods og ejendom.
22 Han fik autoritet over alle kongens embedsmænd
    og gav instrukser til Faraos rådgivere.
23 Så kom Jakob og hans familie til landet,
    de boede som gæster i Egypten.

24 Herren gjorde dem frugtbare og talrige,
    de blev mere talstærke end landets indbyggere.
25 På den måde gjorde Gud egypterne misundelige,
    så de begyndte at mishandle hans tjenere.
26 Da sendte Gud sin tjener Moses
    sammen med Aron, som han havde udvalgt.
27 De udførte fantastiske ting,
    gjorde tegn og undere i Egyptens land.
28 Herren sendte et tykt mørke over landet,
    men egypterne adlød ikke hans befaling.
29 Han forvandlede deres floder til blod,
    så alle fiskene døde.
30 Han fyldte landet med frøer,
    selv i kongens private gemakker kom de ind.
31 Han sendte fluesværme i massevis,
    myggene svirrede over hele landet.
32 I stedet for regn kom der frygtelige haglbyger,
    og lynene slog ned over hele Egypten.
33 Vinstokke og figentræer blev ødelagt,
    træerne splintredes og væltede omkuld.
34 Så sendte han sværme af græshopper,
    de kom i utrolige mængder,
35 de åd alt, hvad der var grønt i landet,
    de spiste alle markens afgrøder.
36 Derpå dræbte han det kæreste, de ejede,
    den førstefødte søn i hvert eneste hjem.
37 Da førte Herren sit folk ud af Egypten,
    belæsset med sølv og guld,
        ingen var syg eller svagelig.
38 Egypterne var lettede, da de var borte,
    for de var blevet bange for dem.
39 Gud skærmede sit folk med en sky,
    han lyste for dem med en ildsky om natten.
40 De bad om kød, og han sendte vagtler,
    mættede dem med manna, brødet fra himlen.
41 Han åbnede en klippe, så vand strømmede ud,
    det blev til en flod i ørkenens sand.
42 Herren opfyldte sit hellige løfte,
    som han havde givet til sin tjener Abraham.
43 Hans folk drog ud med frydesang,
    hans udvalgte jublede af glæde.
44 Han gav dem fremmede folkeslags lande,
    de høstede afgrøder, som andre havde plantet.
45 Det gjorde han med det mål for øje,
    at hans folk skulle adlyde hans bud.
Lovet være Herren!
