21  They forgot God their saviour, 
   who had done such great things in Egypt,
22  Wonderful deeds in the land of Ham 
   and fearful things at the Red Sea.
23  So he would have destroyed them,
      had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, 
   to turn away his wrath from consuming them.
24  Then they scorned the Promised Land 
   and would not believe his word,
25  But murmured in their tents 
   and would not heed the voice of the Lord.
26  So he lifted his hand against them 
   and swore to overthrow them in the wilderness,
27  To disperse their descendants among the nations, 
   and to scatter them throughout the lands.
28  They joined themselves to the Baal of Peor 
   and ate sacrifices offered to the dead.
29  They provoked him to anger with their evil deeds 
   and a plague broke out among them.
30  Then Phinehas stood up and interceded 
   and so the plague was stayed.
31  This was counted to him for righteousness 
   throughout all generations for ever.
32  They angered him also at the waters of Meribah, 
   so that Moses suffered for their sake;
33  For they so embittered his spirit 
   that he spoke rash words with his lips.
34  They did not destroy the peoples 
   as the Lord had commanded them.
35  They mingled with the nations 
   and learned to follow their ways,
36  So that they worshipped their idols, 
   which became to them a snare.
37  Their own sons and daughters 
   they sacrificed to evil spirits.
38  They shed innocent blood, 
   the blood of their sons and daughters,
39  Which they offered to the idols of Canaan, 
   and the land was defiled with blood.
40  Thus were they polluted by their actions, 
   and in their wanton deeds went whoring after other gods.
41  Therefore was the wrath of the Lord
      kindled against his people, 
   and he abhorred his inheritance.
42  He gave them over to the hand of the nations, 
   and those who hated them ruled over them.
43  So their enemies oppressed them 
   and put them in subjection under their hand.
44  Many a time did he deliver them,
      but they rebelled through their own devices 
   and were brought down through their wickedness.
45  Nevertheless, he saw their adversity, 
   when he heard their lamentation.
