Psalm 105

Tell of All His Wonderful Works

1 Oh, a give thanks to the LORD!
Call upon His name;
b Make known His deeds among the peoples!
2 Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him;
c Talk of all His wondrous works!
3 Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD!
4 Seek the LORD and His strength;
d Seek His face evermore!
5 e Remember His marvelous works which He has done,
His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth,
6 O seed of Abraham His servant,
You children of Jacob, His chosen ones!

7 He is the LORD our God;
f His judgments are in all the earth.
8 He g remembers His covenant forever,
The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations,
9 h The covenant which He made with Abraham,
And His oath to Isaac,
10 And confirmed it to Jacob for a statute,
To Israel as an everlasting covenant,
11 Saying, i "To you I will give the land of Canaan
As the allotment of your inheritance,"

12 j When they were few in number,
Indeed very few, k and strangers in it.
13 When they went from one nation to another,
From one kingdom to another people,
14 l He permitted no one to do them wrong;
Yes, m He rebuked kings for their sakes,
15 Saying, "Do not touch My anointed ones,
And do My prophets no harm."

16 Moreover n He called for a famine in the land;
He destroyed all the o provision of bread.
17 p He sent a man before them -
Joseph - who q was sold as a slave.
18 r They hurt his feet with fetters,
1 He was laid in irons.
19 Until the time that his word came to pass,
s The word of the LORD tested him.
20 t The king sent and released him,
The ruler of the people let him go free.
21 u He made him lord of his house,
And ruler of all his possessions,
22 To 2 bind his princes at his pleasure,
And teach his elders wisdom.

23 v Israel also came into Egypt,
And Jacob dwelt w in the land of Ham.
24 x He increased His people greatly,
And made them stronger than their enemies.
25 y He turned their heart to hate His people,
To deal craftily with His servants.

26 z He sent Moses His servant,
And Aaron whom He had chosen.
27 They a performed His signs among them,
And wonders in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness, and made it dark;
And they did not rebel against His word.
29 b He turned their waters into blood,
And killed their fish.
30 c Their land abounded with frogs,
Even in the chambers of their kings.
31 d He spoke, and there came swarms of flies,
And lice in all their territory.
32 e He gave them hail for rain,
And flaming fire in their land.
33 f He struck their vines also, and their fig trees,
And splintered the trees of their territory.
34 g He spoke, and locusts came,
Young locusts without number,
35 And ate up all the vegetation in their land,
And devoured the fruit of their ground.
36 h He also 3 destroyed all the firstborn in their land,
i The first of all their strength.

37 j He also brought them out with silver and gold,
And there was none feeble among His tribes.
38 k Egypt was glad when they departed,
For the fear of them had fallen upon them.

39 l He spread a cloud for a covering,
And fire to give light in the night.
40 m The people asked, and He brought quail,
And n satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
41 o He opened the rock, and water gushed out;
It ran in the dry places like a river.
42 For He remembered p His holy promise,
And Abraham His servant.

43 He brought out His people with joy,
His chosen ones with 4 gladness.
44 q He gave them the lands of the 5 Gentiles,
And they inherited the labor of the nations,
45 r That they might observe His statutes
And keep His laws.
6 Praise the LORD!
