Psalms 106

Israel’s Rebelliousness and the  Lord’s Deliverances.

Or Hallelujah!
Heb  Yah
the  Lord!
Oh c give thanks to the  Lord, for He d is good;
For e His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Who can speak of the f mighty deeds of the  Lord,
Or can show forth all His praise?
How blessed are those who keep
Or judgment
Many Heb mss read The one who performs
Who i practice righteousness at all times!

Remember me, O  Lord, in Your j favor
Lit of
toward Your people;
Visit me with Your salvation,
That I may see the l prosperity of Your chosen ones,
That I may m rejoice in the gladness of Your nation,
That I may n glory with Your
I.e. people

p We have sinned
Lit with
r like our fathers,
We have committed iniquity, we have behaved wickedly.
Our fathers in Egypt did not understand Your
I.e. wonderful acts
They t did not remember
Lit the multitude of Your lovingkindnesses
Your abundant kindnesses,
But v rebelled by the sea, at the
Lit Sea of Reeds
Red Sea.
Nevertheless He saved them x for the sake of His name,
That He might y make His power known.
Thus He z rebuked the
Lit Sea of Reeds
Red Sea and it ab dried up,
And He ac led them through the deeps, as through the wilderness.
10 So He ad saved them from the
Or power
hand of the one who hated them,
And af redeemed them from the
Or power
hand of the enemy.
11  ah The waters covered their adversaries;
Not one of them was left.
12 Then they ai believed His words;
They aj sang His praise.

13 They quickly ak forgot His works;
They al did not wait for His counsel,
14 But am craved intensely in the wilderness,
Or put God to the test
ao tempted God in the desert.
15 So He ap gave them their request,
But aq sent a
Or leanness into their soul
wasting disease among them.

16 When they became as envious of Moses in the camp,
And of Aaron, the holy one of the  Lord,
17 The at earth opened and swallowed up Dathan,
And engulfed the
Or assembly, band
company of Abiram.
18 And a av fire blazed up in their
Or assembly, band
The flame consumed the wicked.

19 They ax made a calf in Horeb
And worshiped a molten image.
20 Thus they ay exchanged their glory
For the image of an ox that eats grass.
21 They az forgot God their Savior,
Who had done ba great things in Egypt,
I.e. Wonderful acts
bc Wonders in the land of Ham
And awesome things by the
Lit Sea of Reeds
Red Sea.
23 Therefore be He said that He would destroy them,
Had not bf Moses His chosen one stood in the breach before Him,
To turn away His wrath from destroying them.
24 Then they bg despised the bh pleasant land;
They bi did not believe in His word,
25 But bj grumbled in their tents;
They did not listen to the voice of the  Lord.
26 Therefore He
Lit lifted up His hand
bl swore to them
That He would cast them down in the wilderness,
27 And that He would bm cast their seed among the nations
And bn scatter them in the lands.

28 They bo joined themselves also to
Or Baal of Peor
And ate bq sacrifices offered to the dead.
29 Thus they br provoked Him to anger with their deeds,
And the plague broke out among them.
30 Then Phinehas bs stood up and interposed,
And so the bt plague was stayed.
31 And it was bu reckoned to him for righteousness,
To all generations forever.

32 They also bv provoked Him to wrath at the waters of
Lit strife
So that it bx went hard with Moses on their account;
33 Because they by were rebellious against
Or his spirit
His Spirit,
He spoke rashly with his lips.

34 They ca did not destroy the peoples,
As cb the  Lord commanded them,
35 But cc they mingled with the nations
And learned their
Lit works
36 And ce served their idols,
cf Which became a snare to them.
37 They even cg sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the ch demons,
38 And shed ci innocent blood,
The blood of their cj sons and their daughters,
Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;
And the land was ck polluted with the blood.
39 Thus they became cl unclean in their
Lit works
And cn played the harlot in their deeds.

40 Therefore the co anger of the  Lord was kindled against His people
And He cp abhorred His
I.e. people
cr inheritance.
41 Then cs He gave them into the hand of the
Or Gentiles
And those who hated them ruled over them.
42 Their enemies also cu oppressed them,
And they were subdued under their
Lit hand
43 Many times He would cw deliver them;
They, however, were rebellious in their cx counsel,
And so cy sank down in their iniquity.

44 Nevertheless He looked upon their distress
When He cz heard their cry;
45 And He da remembered His covenant for their sake,
Lit was sorry
dc relented dd according to the greatness of His lovingkindness.
46 He also made them de  objects of compassion
In the presence of all their captors.

47  df Save us, O  Lord our God,
And dg gather us from among the nations,
To give thanks to Your holy name
Lit boast
di glory in Your praise.
48  dj Blessed be the  Lord, the God of Israel,
From everlasting even to everlasting.
And let all the people say, “Amen.”
Or Hallelujah!
Heb  Yah
the  Lord!
