Psalm 106

A Confession of Israel’s Sins


1 Praise the Lord!
   O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
   for his steadfast love endures for ever.
2 Who can utter the mighty doings of the Lord,
   or declare all his praise?
3 Happy are those who observe justice,
   who do righteousness at all times.


4 Remember me, O Lord, when you show favour to your people;
   help me when you deliver them;
5 that I may see the prosperity of your chosen ones,
   that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation,
   that I may glory in your heritage.


6 Both we and our ancestors have sinned;
   we have committed iniquity, have done wickedly.
37 They sacrificed their sons
   and their daughters to the demons;
38 they poured out innocent blood,
   the blood of their sons and daughters,
whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;
   and the land was polluted with blood.
39 Thus they became unclean by their acts,
   and prostituted themselves in their doings.


40 Then the anger of the Lord was kindled against his people,
   and he abhorred his heritage;
41 he gave them into the hand of the nations,
   so that those who hated them ruled over them.
42 Their enemies oppressed them,
   and they were brought into subjection under their power.
43 Many times he delivered them,
   but they were rebellious in their purposes,
   and were brought low through their iniquity.
44 Nevertheless, he regarded their distress
   when he heard their cry.
45 For their sake he remembered his covenant,
   and showed compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love.
