Psalms 105

Tell of All His Wonderful Works

a Oh give thanks to the  Lord; b call upon his name;
c make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
d tell of all his wondrous works!
Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the  Lord rejoice!
Seek the  Lord and his e strength;
f seek his presence continually!
Remember the g wondrous works that he has done,
his miracles, and h the judgments he uttered,
O offspring of i Abraham, his servant,
children of Jacob, his j chosen ones!
He is the  Lord our God;
his k judgments are in all the earth.
He l remembers his covenant forever,
the word that he commanded, for m a thousand generations,
n the covenant that he made with Abraham,
his o sworn promise to Isaac,
10 which he confirmed to p Jacob as a statute,
to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
11 saying q “To you I will give the land of Canaan
as r your portion for an inheritance.”
12  When they were s few in number,
of little account, and t sojourners in it,
13 wandering from nation to nation,
from one kingdom to another people,
14 he u allowed no one to oppress them;
he v rebuked kings on their account,
15 saying, w Touch not my anointed ones,
do my prophets no harm!”
16  When he x summoned a famine on the land
and y broke all supply
Hebrew staff
of bread,
17 he had aa sent a man ahead of them,
Joseph, who was ab sold as a slave.
18 His ac feet were hurt with fetters;
his neck was put in a collar of iron;
19 until ad what he had said came to pass,
the word of the  Lord ae tested him.
20  af The king sent and ag released him;
the ruler of the peoples set him free;
21 he ah made him lord of his house
and ruler of all his possessions,
22 to bind
Septuagint, Syriac, Jerome instruct
his princes at his pleasure
and to teach his elders wisdom.
23  Then aj Israel came to Egypt;
Jacob ak sojourned in al the land of Ham.
24 And the  Lord am made his people very fruitful
and made them stronger than their foes.
25 He an turned their hearts to hate his people,
to ao deal craftily with his servants.
26  He ap sent Moses, his servant,
and Aaron, aq whom he had chosen.
27  ar They performed his signs among them
and miracles in as the land of Ham.
28 He at sent darkness, and made the land dark;
they au did not rebel
Septuagint, Syriac omit  not
against his words.
29 He turned their waters into blood
and aw caused their fish to die.
30 Their land swarmed with frogs,
even in ax the chambers of their kings.
31 He spoke, and there came ay swarms of flies,
az and gnats throughout their country.
32 He gave them hail for rain,
and fiery ba lightning bolts through their land.
33 He struck down their vines and fig trees,
and bb shattered the trees of their country.
34 He spoke, and the bc locusts came,
young locusts without number,
35 which devoured all the vegetation in their land
and ate up the fruit of their ground.
36 He bd struck down all the firstborn in their land,
be the firstfruits of all their strength.
37  Then he brought out Israel with bf silver and gold,
and there was none among his tribes who stumbled.
38  bg Egypt was glad when they departed,
for bh dread of them had fallen upon it.
39  He bi spread a cloud for a covering,
and fire to give light by night.
40  bj They asked, and he bk brought quail,
and gave them bl bread from heaven in abundance.
41 He opened the rock, and bm water gushed out;
it flowed through bn the desert like a river.
42 For he bo remembered his holy promise,
and bp Abraham, his servant.
43  So he brought his people out with joy,
his bq chosen ones with br singing.
44 And he bs gave them the lands of the nations,
and they took possession of the fruit of the peoples’ toil,
45 that they might bt keep his statutes
and bu observe his laws.
bv Praise the  Lord!
