1 O give thanks to the Lord and call upon his name;
make known his deeds among the peoples.
2 Sing to him, sing praises,
and tell of all his marvellous works.
3 Rejoice in the praise of his holy name;
let the hearts of them rejoice who seek the Lord.
4 Seek the Lord and his strength;
seek his face continually.
5 Remember the marvels he has done,
his wonders and the judgements of his mouth,
6 O seed of Abraham his servant,
O children of Jacob his chosen.
16 Then he called down famine over the land
and broke every staff of bread.
17 But he had sent a man before them,
Joseph, who was sold as a slave.
18 They shackled his feet with fetters;
his neck was ringed with iron.
19 Until all he foretold came to pass,
the word of the Lord tested him.
20 The king sent and released him;
the ruler of peoples set him free.
21 He appointed him lord of his household
and ruler of all he possessed,
22 To instruct his princes as he willed
and to teach his counsellors wisdom.
45 That they might keep his statutes
and faithfully observe his laws.
