Psalms 105

Tell of All His Wonderful Works

1 a  Oh give thanks to the  Lord; b  call upon his name;
c  make known his deeds among the peoples!
2Sing to him, sing praises to him;
d  tell of all his wondrous works!
3Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the  Lord rejoice!
4Seek the  Lord and his e  strength;
f  seek his presence continually!
5Remember the g  wondrous works that he has done,
his miracles, and h  the judgments he uttered,
6O offspring of i  Abraham, his servant,
children of Jacob, his j  chosen ones!
7 He is the  Lord our God;
his k  judgments are in all the earth.
8He l  remembers his covenant forever,
the word that he commanded, for m  a thousand generations,
9 n  the covenant that he made with Abraham,
his o  sworn promise to Isaac,
10which he confirmed to p  Jacob as a statute,
to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
11saying q  “To you I will give the land of Canaan
as r  your portion for an inheritance.”
12 When they were s  few in number,
of little account, and t  sojourners in it,
13wandering from nation to nation,
from one kingdom to another people,
14he u  allowed no one to oppress them;
he v  rebuked kings on their account,
15saying, w  Touch not my anointed ones,
do my prophets no harm!”
16 When he x  summoned a famine on the land
and y  broke all supply
Hebrew staff
of bread,
17he had aa  sent a man ahead of them,
Joseph, who was ab  sold as a slave.
18His ac  feet were hurt with fetters;
his neck was put in a collar of iron;
19until ad  what he had said came to pass,
the word of the  Lord ae  tested him.
20 af  The king sent and ag  released him;
the ruler of the peoples set him free;
21he ah  made him lord of his house
and ruler of all his possessions,
22to bind
Septuagint, Syriac, Jerome instruct
his princes at his pleasure
and to teach his elders wisdom.
23 Then aj  Israel came to Egypt;
Jacob ak  sojourned in al  the land of Ham.
24And the  Lord am  made his people very fruitful
and made them stronger than their foes.
25He an  turned their hearts to hate his people,
to ao  deal craftily with his servants.
26 He ap  sent Moses, his servant,
and Aaron, aq  whom he had chosen.
27 ar  They performed his signs among them
and miracles in as  the land of Ham.
28He at  sent darkness, and made the land dark;
they au  did not rebel
Septuagint, Syriac omit  not
against his words.
29He turned their waters into blood
and aw  caused their fish to die.
30Their land swarmed with frogs,
even in ax  the chambers of their kings.
31He spoke, and there came ay  swarms of flies,
az  and gnats throughout their country.
32He gave them hail for rain,
and fiery ba  lightning bolts through their land.
33He struck down their vines and fig trees,
and bb  shattered the trees of their country.
34He spoke, and the bc  locusts came,
young locusts without number,
35which devoured all the vegetation in their land
and ate up the fruit of their ground.
36He bd  struck down all the firstborn in their land,
be  the firstfruits of all their strength.
37 Then he brought out Israel with bf  silver and gold,
and there was none among his tribes who stumbled.
38 bg  Egypt was glad when they departed,
for bh  dread of them had fallen upon it.
39 He bi  spread a cloud for a covering,
and fire to give light by night.
40 bj  They asked, and he bk  brought quail,
and gave them bl  bread from heaven in abundance.
41He opened the rock, and bm  water gushed out;
it flowed through bn  the desert like a river.
42For he bo  remembered his holy promise,
and bp  Abraham, his servant.
43 So he brought his people out with joy,
his bq  chosen ones with br  singing.
44And he bs  gave them the lands of the nations,
and they took possession of the fruit of the peoples’ toil,
45that they might bt  keep his statutes
and bu  observe his laws.
bv  Praise the  Lord!
