Psalm 105

O give thanks to the Lord and call upon his name :
 tell among the peoples what things he has done.
Sing to him, O sing praises :
 and be telling of all his marvellous works.
Exult in his holy name :
 and let those that seek the Lord be joyful in heart.
Seek the Lord and his strength :
 O seek his face continually.
Call to mind what wonders he has done :
 his marvellous acts, and the judgements of his mouth,
O seed of Abraham his servant :
 O children of Jacob his chosen one.
For he is the Lord our God :
 and his judgements are in all the earth.
He has remembered his covenant for ever :
 the word that he ordained for a thousand generations,
The covenant that he made with Abraham :
 the oath that he swore to Isaac,
And confirmed it to Jacob as a statute :
 to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
Saying ‘I will give you the land of Canaan :
 to be the portion of your inheritance’,
And that when they were but few :
 little in number and aliens in the land.
They wandered from nation to nation :
 from one people and kingdom to another.
He suffered no man to do them wrong :
 but reproved even kings for their sake,
Saying ‘Touch not my anointed :
 and do my prophets no harm.’
Then he called down a famine on the land :
 and destroyed the bread that was their stay.
But he had sent a man ahead of them :
 Joseph who was sold into slavery,
Whose feet they fastened with fetters :
 and thrust his neck into a hoop of iron.
Till the time that his words proved true :
 he was tested by the Lord’s command.
Then the king sent and loosed him :
 the ruler of nations set him free;
He made him master of his household :
 and ruler over all his possessions,
To rebuke his officers at will :
 and to teach his counsellors wisdom.
Then Israel came into Egypt :
 and Jacob dwelt in the land of Ham.
There the Lord made his people fruitful :
 too numerous for their enemies,
Whose hearts he turned to hate his people :
 and to deal deceitfully with his servants.
Then he sent Moses his servant :
 And Aaron whom he had chosen.
Through them he manifested his signs :
 and his wonders in the land of Ham.
He sent darkness, and it was dark :
 yet they would not obey his commands.
He turned their waters into blood :
 and slew the fish therein.
Their country swarmed with frogs :
 even the inner chambers of their kings.
He spoke the word, and there came great swarms of flies :
 and gnats within all their borders.
He sent them storms of hail :
 and darts of fire into their land.
He struck their vines and their fig-trees :
 and shattered the trees within their borders.
He commanded, and there came grasshoppers :
 and young locusts without number.
They ate up every green thing in the land :
 and devoured the fruit of the soil.
He smote all the first-born in their land :
 the first-fruits of all their manhood.
He brought Israel out with silver and with gold :
 and not one among their tribes was seen to stumble.
Egypt was glad at their going :
 for dread of Israel had fallen upon them.
He spread out a cloud for a covering :
 and fire to lighten the night.
The people asked, and he brought them quails :
 and satisfied them with the bread from heaven.
He opened a rock, so that the waters gushed :
 and ran in the parched land like a river.
For he had remembered his holy word :
 that he gave to Abraham his servant.
So he led out his people with rejoicing :
 his chosen ones with shouts of joy;
He gave them the land of the nations :
 and they took possession of the fruit of other men’s toil,
So that they might keep his statutes :
 and faithfully obey his laws.
   O praise the Lord.
