Psalms 106

Israel’s Rebelliousness and the  Lord’s Deliverances.

1
Or Hallelujah!
Praise
Heb  Yah
the  Lord!
Oh c  give thanks to the  Lord, for He d  is good;
For e  His lovingkindness is everlasting.
2Who can speak of the f  mighty deeds of the  Lord,
Or can show forth all His praise?
3How blessed are those who keep
Or judgment
justice,
Many Heb mss read The one who performs
Who i  practice righteousness at all times!

4Remember me, O  Lord, in Your j  favor
Lit of
toward Your people;
Visit me with Your salvation,
5That 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
inheritance.

6 p  We have sinned
Lit with
,
r  like our fathers,
We have committed iniquity, we have behaved wickedly.
7Our fathers in Egypt did not understand Your
I.e. wonderful acts
wonders;
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.
8Nevertheless He saved them x  for the sake of His name,
That He might y  make His power known.
9Thus 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.
10So 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.
12Then they ai  believed His words;
They aj  sang His praise.

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

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

19They ax  made a calf in Horeb
And worshiped a molten image.
20Thus they ay  exchanged their glory
For the image of an ox that eats grass.
21They az  forgot God their Savior,
Who had done ba  great things in Egypt,
22
I.e. Wonderful acts
,
bc  Wonders in the land of Ham
And awesome things by the
Lit Sea of Reeds
Red Sea.
23Therefore 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.
24Then they bg  despised the bh  pleasant land;
They bi  did not believe in His word,
25But bj  grumbled in their tents;
They did not listen to the voice of the  Lord.
26Therefore He
Lit lifted up His hand
,
bl  swore to them
That He would cast them down in the wilderness,
27And that He would bm  cast their seed among the nations
And bn  scatter them in the lands.

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

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

34They ca  did not destroy the peoples,
As cb  the  Lord commanded them,
35But cc  they mingled with the nations
And learned their
Lit works
practices,
36And ce  served their idols,
cf  Which became a snare to them.
37They even cg  sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the ch  demons,
38And 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.
39Thus they became cl  unclean in their
Lit works
practices,
And cn  played the harlot in their deeds.

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

44Nevertheless He looked upon their distress
When He cz  heard their cry;
45And He da  remembered His covenant for their sake,
And
Lit was sorry
,
dc  relented dd  according to the greatness of His lovingkindness.
46He 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
And
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!
Praise
Heb  Yah
the  Lord!
