Psalms 106

1Alleluia. Give thanks to the Lord; for He is good; for His mercy endures forever. 2Who shall tell the mighty acts of the Lord? Who shall cause all His praises to be heard? 3Blessed are they that keep judgment, and do righteousness at all times. 4Remember us, O Lord, with the favor You have toward Your people; visit us with Your salvation; 5that we may behold the good of Your elect, that we may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation, that we may glory with Your inheritance. 6We have sinned with our fathers, we have transgressed, we have done unrighteously. 7Our fathers in Egypt understood not Your wonders, and remembered not the multitude of Your mercy; but provoked Him as they went up by the Red Sea. 8Yet He saved them for His name's sake, that He might cause His mighty power to be known. 9And He rebuked the Red Sea, and it was dried up; so He led them through the deep as through the wilderness. 10And He saved them out of the hand of them that hated them, and redeemed them out of the hand of the enemy. 11The water covered those that oppressed them; there was not one of them left. 12Then they believed His words, and celebrated His praise. 13They made haste, they forgot His works; they waited not for His counsel. 14And they lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the dry land. 15And He gave them their request, and sent fullness into their souls. 16They provoked Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the holy one of the Lord. 17The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and closed upon the congregation of Abiram. 18And a fire was kindled in their congregation, and a flame burned up the sinners. 19And they made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the graven image, 20and they changed their glory into the likeness of a calf that feeds on grass. 21They forgot God that saved them, who had done great deeds in Egypt; 22wondrous works in the land of Ham, and awesome things at the Red Sea. 23So He said that He would have destroyed them, had not Moses His chosen one stood before Him in the breach, to turn Him away from the fierceness of His anger, so that He should not destroy them. 24Moreover they despised the desirable land, and did not believe His word. 25And they murmured in their tents; they hearkened not to the voice of the Lord. 26So He lifted up His hand against them, to cast them down in the wilderness; 27and to cast down their seed among the nations, and to scatter them in the countries. 28They were joined also to Baal of Peor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead. And they provoked Him with their deeds; 29and destruction was multiplied among them. 30Then Phinehas stood up and made atonement, and the plague ceased. 31And it was counted to him for righteousness, to all generations forever. 32They provoked Him also at the Water of Strife, and Moses was hurt for their sakes; 33for they provoked his spirit, and he spoke unadvisedly with his lips. 34They destroyed not the nations which the Lord told them to destroy; 35but were mingled with the heathen, and learned their works. 36And they served their graven images; and it became an offense to them. 37And they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons, 38and shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was defiled with blood, 39and was polluted with their works; and they went a whoring by their own deeds. 40So the Lord was very angry with His people, and He abhorred His inheritance. 41And He delivered them into the hands of their enemies; and they that hated them ruled over them. 42Ands their enemies oppressed them, and they were brought down under their hands. 43Many a time He delivered them; but they provoked Him by their counsel, and they were brought low by their iniquities. 44You the Lord looked upon their affliction, when You heard their petition. 45And He remembered His covenant, and relented according to the multitude of His mercy. 46And He caused them to be pitied in the sight of all who carried them captive. 47Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from among the heathen, that we may give thanks to Your holy name, that we may glory in Your praise. 48Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting; and all the people shall say, Amen, Amen.
