Psalm 105

The Lord’s Wonderful Works in Behalf of Israel.

1Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples.
Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
[a]Speak of all His [b]wonders.
[c]Glory in His holy name;
Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad.
Seek the Lord and His strength;
Seek His face continually.
Remember His [d]wonders which He has done,
His marvels and the judgments [e]uttered by His mouth,
O seed of Abraham, His servant,
O 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 to a thousand generations,
The covenant which He made with Abraham,
And His oath to Isaac.
10 Then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute,
To Israel as an everlasting covenant,
11 Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan
As the [f]portion of your inheritance,”
12 When they were only a few men in number,
Very few, and strangers in it.
13 And they wandered about from nation to nation,
From one kingdom to another people.
14 He permitted no man to oppress them,
And He reproved kings for their sakes:
15 “Do not touch My anointed ones,
And do My prophets no harm.”

16 And He called for a famine upon the land;
He broke the whole staff of bread.
17 He sent a man before them,
Joseph, who was sold as a slave.
18 They afflicted his feet with fetters,
[g]He himself was laid in irons;
19 Until the time that his word came to pass,
The word of the Lord [h]tested him.
20 The king sent and released him,
The ruler of peoples, and set him free.
21 He made him lord of his house
And ruler over all his possessions,
22 To [i]imprison his princes [j]at will,
That he might teach his elders wisdom.
23 Israel also came into Egypt;
Thus Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
24 And He caused His people to be very fruitful,
And made them stronger than their adversaries.

25 He turned their heart to hate His people,
To deal craftily with His servants.
26 He sent Moses His servant,
And Aaron, whom He had chosen.
27 They [k]performed His wondrous acts among them,
And miracles in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness and made it dark;
And they did not rebel against His words.
29 He turned their 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 a swarm of flies
And gnats in all their territory.
32 He [l]gave them hail for rain,
And flaming fire in their land.
33 He struck down their vines also and their fig trees,
And shattered the trees of their territory.
34 He spoke, and locusts came,
And young locusts, even without number,
35 And ate up all vegetation in their land,
And ate up the fruit of their ground.
36 He also struck down all the firstborn in their land,
The first fruits of all their vigor.

37 Then He brought them out with silver and gold,
And among His tribes there was not one who stumbled.
38 Egypt was glad when they departed,
For the dread of them had fallen upon them.
39 He spread a cloud for a [m]covering,
And fire to illumine by night.
40 [n]They asked, and He brought quail,
And satisfied them with the [o]bread of heaven.
41 He opened the [p]rock and water flowed out;
[q]It ran in the dry places like a river.
42 For He remembered His holy word
With Abraham His servant;
43 And He brought forth His people with joy,
His chosen ones with a joyful shout.
44 He gave them also the lands of the [r]nations,
That they might take possession of the fruit of the peoples’ labor,
45 So that they might keep His statutes
And observe His laws,
[s]Praise [t]the Lord!

Psalm 105

Psalm 105

Give praise to the Lord and announce who he is.
    Tell the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him.
    Tell about all the wonderful things he has done.
Praise him, because his name is holy.
    Let the hearts of those who trust in the Lord be glad.
Seek the Lord and the strength he gives.
    Always seek him.

Remember the wonderful things he has done.
    Remember his miracles and how he judged our enemies.
Remember what he has done, you children of his servant Abraham.
    Remember it, you people of Jacob, God’s chosen ones.
He is the Lord our God.
    He judges the whole earth.

He will keep his covenant forever.
    He will keep his promise for all time to come.
He will keep the covenant he made with Abraham.
    He will keep the promise he made to Isaac.
10 He made it stand as a law for Jacob.
    He made it stand as a covenant for Israel that will last forever.
11 He said, “I will give you the land of Canaan.
    It will belong to you.”

12 At first there weren’t very many of God’s people.
    There were only a few, and they were strangers in the land.
13 They wandered from nation to nation.
    They wandered from one kingdom to another.
14 But God didn’t allow anyone to treat them badly.
    To keep them safe, he gave a command to kings.
15 He said to them, “Do not touch my anointed ones.
    Do not harm my prophets.”

16 He made the people in the land go hungry.
    He destroyed all their food supplies.
17 He sent a man ahead of them into Egypt.
    That man was Joseph. He had been sold as a slave.
18 The Egyptians put his feet in chains.
    They put an iron collar around his neck.
19 He was in prison until what he said would happen came true.
    The word of the Lord proved that he was right.
20 The king of Egypt sent for Joseph and let him out of prison.
    The ruler of many nations set him free.
21 He put Joseph in charge of his palace.
    He made him ruler over everything he owned.
22 Joseph was in charge of teaching the princes.
    He taught the elders how to think and live wisely.

23 Then the rest of Jacob’s family went to Egypt.
    The people of Israel lived as outsiders in the land of Ham.
24 The Lord gave his people so many children
    that there were too many of them for their enemies.
25 He made the Egyptians hate his people.
    The Egyptians made evil plans against them.
26 The Lord sent his servant Moses to the king of Egypt.
    He sent Aaron, his chosen one, along with him.
27 The Lord gave them the power to do signs among the Egyptians.
    They did his wonders in the land of Ham.
28 The Lord sent darkness over the land.
    He did it because the Egyptians had refused to obey his words.
29 He turned their rivers and streams into blood.
    He caused the fish in them to die.
30 Their land was covered with frogs.
    Frogs even went into the bedrooms of the rulers.
31 The Lord spoke, and large numbers of flies came.
    Gnats filled the whole country.
32 He turned their rain into hail.
    Lightning flashed all through their land.
33 He destroyed their vines and fig trees.
    He broke down the trees in Egypt.
34 He spoke, and the locusts came.
    There were so many of them they couldn’t be counted.
35 They ate up every green thing in the land.
    They ate up what the land produced.
36 Then he killed the oldest son of every family in Egypt.
    He struck down the oldest of all their sons.

37 He brought the people of Israel out of Egypt.
    The Egyptians loaded them down with silver and gold.
    From among the tribes of Israel no one got tired or fell down.
38 The Egyptians were glad when the people of Israel left.
    They were terrified because of Israel.
39 The Lord spread out a cloud to cover his people.
    He gave them a fire to light up the night.
40 They asked for meat, and he brought them quail.
    He fed them well with manna, the bread of heaven.
41 He broke open a rock, and streams of water poured out.
    They flowed like a river in the desert.

42 He remembered the holy promise
    he had made to his servant Abraham.
43 His chosen people shouted for joy
    as he brought them out of Egypt.
44 He gave them the lands of other nations.
    He let them take over what others had worked for.
45 He did it so they might obey his rules
    and follow his laws.

Praise the Lord.
