Psalm 105(A)

Oh, give thanks unto the Lord; call upon His name;
    make known His deeds among the peoples.
Sing unto Him, sing praises unto Him;
    proclaim all His wondrous works.
Glory in His holy name;
    let the heart rejoice for those who seek the Lord.
Seek the Lord and His strength;
    seek His presence continuously.

Remember His marvelous works that He has done;
    His wonders and the judgments from His mouth,
O offspring of Abraham, His servant,
    O children of Jacob, His chosen ones.
He is the Lord our God;
    His judgments are in all the earth.

He remembers His covenant forever,
    the word that He commanded, to a thousand generations,
that covenant He made with Abraham,
    and His oath to Isaac,
10 and confirmed to Jacob as a decree,
    and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
11 saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan
    as the portion of your inheritance.”

12 When they were but a few people in number,
    indeed, very few, and strangers in it,
13 when they went from one nation to another,
    from one kingdom to another people,
14 He did not permit anyone to do them wrong;
    indeed, He reproved kings on their behalf,
15 saying, “Do not touch my anointed ones,
    and do no harm to my prophets.”

16 Moreover He called for a famine upon the land;
    He broke the whole supply of bread.
17 He sent a man before them,
    Joseph, who was sold as a slave.
18 They hurt his feet with fetters;
    his neck was put in an iron collar.
19 Until the time that his word came to pass,
    the word of the Lord tested him.
20 The king sent and released him;
    the ruler of the people let him go free.
21 He made Joseph lord of his house
    and ruler of all his possessions,
22 to imprison his princes at Joseph’s pleasure
    and to teach his elders wisdom.

23 Then Israel came into Egypt,
    and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
24 The Lord increased His people greatly
    and made them stronger than their enemies.
25 He turned their hearts to hate His people,
    to deal cleverly with His servants.
26 He sent Moses, His servant,
    and Aaron whom He had chosen.
27 They showed His signs among them
    and wonders in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness and made the land dark,
    and Moses and Aaron did not rebel against His word.
29 He turned their waters into blood
    and caused their fish to die.
30 Their land brought forth frogs in abundance,
    even in the chambers of their kings.
31 He spoke, and there came swarms of flies
    and gnats in all their country.
32 He gave them hail for rain
    and flaming lightning in their land.
33 He struck their vines and their fig trees
    and shattered the trees of their country.
34 He spoke, and the locusts came,
    and caterpillars without number,
35 that devoured all the vegetation in their land,
    and ate all the fruit of their ground.
36 He struck down all the firstborn in their land,
    the first fruits of all their strength.
37 Then He brought them out with silver and gold,
    and no one among their tribes faltered.
38 Egypt was glad when they left,
    for the fear of Israel fell upon them.

39 He spread a cloud for a covering,
    and fire to give light in the night.
40 The people asked, and He brought quail,
    and satisfied them with abundant bread of heaven.
41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out;
    they ran in the desert like a river.

42 For he recalled His holy promise
    to Abraham His servant.
43 He brought forth His people with joy,
    and His chosen ones with gladness,
44 and gave them the lands of the nations,
    and they took possession of the fruitful labor of the people,
45 that they might observe His statutes
    and keep His laws.

Praise the Lord!

Psalm 105(A)

Give praise to the Lord,(B) proclaim his name;(C)
    make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him,(D) sing praise to him;(E)
    tell of all his wonderful acts.(F)
Glory in his holy name;(G)
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Look to the Lord and his strength;
    seek his face(H) always.

Remember the wonders(I) he has done,
    his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,(J)
you his servants, the descendants of Abraham,(K)
    his chosen(L) ones, the children of Jacob.
He is the Lord our God;
    his judgments are in all the earth.

He remembers his covenant(M) forever,
    the promise he made, for a thousand generations,
the covenant he made with Abraham,(N)
    the oath he swore to Isaac.
10 He confirmed it(O) to Jacob as a decree,
    to Israel as an everlasting covenant:(P)
11 “To you I will give the land of Canaan(Q)
    as the portion you will inherit.”(R)

12 When they were but few in number,(S)
    few indeed, and strangers in it,(T)
13 they wandered from nation to nation,(U)
    from one kingdom to another.
14 He allowed no one to oppress(V) them;
    for their sake he rebuked kings:(W)
15 “Do not touch(X) my anointed ones;
    do my prophets(Y) no harm.”

16 He called down famine(Z) on the land
    and destroyed all their supplies of food;
17 and he sent a man before them—
    Joseph, sold as a slave.(AA)
18 They bruised his feet with shackles,(AB)
    his neck was put in irons,
19 till what he foretold(AC) came to pass,
    till the word(AD) of the Lord proved him true.
20 The king sent and released him,
    the ruler of peoples set him free.(AE)
21 He made him master of his household,
    ruler over all he possessed,
22 to instruct his princes(AF) as he pleased
    and teach his elders wisdom.(AG)

23 Then Israel entered Egypt;(AH)
    Jacob resided(AI) as a foreigner in the land of Ham.(AJ)
24 The Lord made his people very fruitful;
    he made them too numerous(AK) for their foes,
25 whose hearts he turned(AL) to hate his people,
    to conspire(AM) against his servants.
26 He sent Moses(AN) his servant,
    and Aaron,(AO) whom he had chosen.(AP)
27 They performed(AQ) his signs(AR) among them,
    his wonders(AS) in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness(AT) and made the land dark—
    for had they not rebelled against(AU) his words?
29 He turned their waters into blood,(AV)
    causing their fish to die.(AW)
30 Their land teemed with frogs,(AX)
    which went up into the bedrooms of their rulers.
31 He spoke,(AY) and there came swarms of flies,(AZ)
    and gnats(BA) throughout their country.
32 He turned their rain into hail,(BB)
    with lightning throughout their land;
33 he struck down their vines(BC) and fig trees(BD)
    and shattered the trees of their country.
34 He spoke,(BE) and the locusts came,(BF)
    grasshoppers(BG) without number;(BH)
35 they ate up every green thing in their land,
    ate up the produce of their soil.
36 Then he struck down all the firstborn(BI) in their land,
    the firstfruits of all their manhood.
37 He brought out Israel, laden with silver and gold,(BJ)
    and from among their tribes no one faltered.
38 Egypt was glad when they left,
    because dread of Israel(BK) had fallen on them.

39 He spread out a cloud(BL) as a covering,
    and a fire to give light at night.(BM)
40 They asked,(BN) and he brought them quail;(BO)
    he fed them well with the bread of heaven.(BP)
41 He opened the rock,(BQ) and water gushed out;
    it flowed like a river in the desert.

42 For he remembered his holy promise(BR)
    given to his servant Abraham.
43 He brought out his people with rejoicing,(BS)
    his chosen ones with shouts of joy;
44 he gave them the lands of the nations,(BT)
    and they fell heir to what others had toiled(BU) for—
45 that they might keep his precepts
    and observe his laws.(BV)

Praise the Lord.[a](BW)
