Give thanks(A) to Yahweh; call on His name;
proclaim His deeds among the peoples.(B)
Sing to Him; sing praise to Him;
tell about all His wonderful works!
10 Honor His holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek Yahweh rejoice.
11 Search for the Lord and for His strength;
seek His face always.(C)
12 Remember the wonderful works He has done,(D)
His wonders, and the judgments He has pronounced,[a](E)
13 you offspring of Israel His servant,
Jacob’s descendants—His chosen ones.

14 He is the Lord our God;
His judgments govern the whole earth.(F)
15 Remember His covenant forever—
the promise He ordained for a thousand generations,
16 the covenant He made with Abraham,
swore[b] to Isaac,(G)
17 and confirmed to Jacob as a decree,
and to Israel as an everlasting covenant:(H)
18 “I will give the land of Canaan to you
as your inherited portion.”(I)

19 When they[c] were few in number,
very few indeed,(J) and temporary residents in Canaan
20 wandering from nation to nation
and from one kingdom to another,
21 He allowed no one to oppress them;
He rebuked kings on their behalf:(K)
22 “Do not touch My anointed ones
or harm My prophets.”(L)
