Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.106.1 Praise…: Heb. Hallelujah
Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth all his praise?
Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.
Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;
That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.
Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea.

And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.
Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.
They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:106.13 They soon…: Heb. They made haste, they forgat
But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.106.14 lusted…: Heb. lusted a lust
And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.
