Psalms 105

Tell of His Wonders

1 Give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name; make known His deeds among the nations. 2 Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; tell of all His wonders. 3 Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice. 4 Seek out the LORD and His strength; seek His face always. 5 Remember the wonders He has done, His marvels, and the judgments He has pronounced, 6 O offspring of Abraham His servant, O sons of Jacob, His chosen ones. 7 He is the LORD our God; His judgments [carry] throughout the earth. 8 He remembers His covenant forever, the word He ordained for a thousand generations— 9 [the covenant] He made with Abraham, and the oath He swore to Isaac. 10 He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree, to Israel as an everlasting covenant: 11 “ . . . I will give you the land of Canaan as the portion of your inheritance.” 12 When they were few in number, few indeed, and strangers in [the land] , 13 they wandered from nation to nation, from [one] kingdom to another. 14 He let no man oppress them; He rebuked kings on their behalf: 15 “Do not touch My anointed ones; do no harm to My prophets.” 16 He called down famine on the land and cut off all their supplies

17 He sent a man before them— Joseph, sold as a slave. 18 They bruised his feet with shackles [and] placed his neck in irons, 19 until his prediction came true, the word of the LORD tested him. 20 The king sent and released him; the ruler of peoples set him free. 21 He made him master of his household, ruler over all his substance, 22 to instruct

his princes as he pleased and teach his elders {wisdom} .
23 Then Israel went to Egypt; Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham. 24 And the LORD made His people very fruitful, more numerous than their foes, 25 whose hearts He turned to hate His people, to conspire against His servants. 26 He sent Moses His servant, and Aaron, whom He had chosen. 27 They performed His miraculous signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham. 28 He sent darkness, and it became dark— for had they not

defied His words?
29 He turned their water to blood and caused their fish to die. 30 Their land teemed with frogs, even in their royal chambers. 31 He spoke, and insects swarmed— gnats throughout their country. 32 He gave them hail for rain, with lightning throughout their land. 33 He struck their vines and fig trees and shattered the trees of their country. 34 He spoke, and the locusts came— young locusts without number. 35 They devoured every plant in their land and consumed the produce of their soil. 36 Then He struck all the firstborn in their land, the firstfruits of all their vigor. 37 Then He brought [Israel] out with silver and gold, and none among His tribes stumbled. 38 Egypt was glad when they departed, for the dread of Israel had fallen on them. 39 He spread a cloud as a covering and a fire to light up the night. 40 They asked, and He brought quail and satisfied them with the bread of heaven. 41 He opened a rock, and water gushed out; it flowed [like] a river in the desert. 42 For He remembered His holy promise to Abraham His servant. 43 He brought forth His people with rejoicing, His chosen with shouts of joy. 44 He gave them the lands of the nations, that they might inherit the fruit of others’ labor, 45 that they might keep His statutes and observe His laws. Hallelujah!
Or Hallelu Yah, meaning Praise the LORD
