[1] OH give thanks unto Jehovah, call upon his name;

Make known among the peoples his doings.

[2] Sing unto him, sing praises unto him;

Talk〖Or, Meditate.〗 ye of all his marvellous works.

[3] Glory ye in his holy name:

Let the heart of them rejoice that seek Jehovah.

[4] Seek ye Jehovah and his strength;

Seek his face evermore.

[5] Remember his marvellous works that he hath done,

His wonders, and the judgments of his mouth,

[6] O ye seed of Abraham his servant,

Ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.

[7] He is Jehovah our God:

His judgments are in all the earth.

[8] He hath remembered his covenant for ever,

The word which he commanded to a thousand generations,

[9] The covenant which he made with Abraham,

And his oath unto Isaac,

[10] And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a statute,

To Israel for an everlasting covenant,

[11] Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan,

The lot〖Heb. cord, or, line.〗 of your inheritance;

[12] When they were but a few men in number,

Yea, very few, and sojourners in it.

[13] And they went about from nation to nation,

From one kingdom to another people.

[14] He suffered no man to do them wrong;

Yea, he reproved kings for their sakes,

[15] Saying, Touch not mine anointed ones,

And do my prophets no harm.

[16] And he called for a famine upon the land;

He brake the whole staff of bread.

[17] He sent a man before them;

Joseph was sold for a servant:

[18] His feet they hurt with fetters:

He〖Heb. His soul entered into the iron.〗 was laid in chains of iron,

[19] Until the time that his word came to pass,

The word of Jehovah tried him.

[20] The king sent and loosed him;

Even the ruler of peoples, and let him go free.

[21] He made him lord of his house,

And ruler of all his substance;

[22] To bind his princes at his pleasure,

And teach his elders wisdom.

[23] Israel also came into Egypt;

And Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.

[24] And he increased his people greatly,

And made them stronger than their adversaries.

[25] He turned their heart to hate his people,

To deal subtly with his servants.

[26] He sent Moses his servant,

And Aaron whom he had chosen.

[27] They set among them his〖Heb. the words of his signs.〗 signs,

And wonders in the land of Ham.

[28] He sent darkness, and made it dark;

And they rebelled not against his words.

[29] He turned their waters into blood,

And slew their fish.

[30] Their land swarmed with frogs

In the chambers of their kings.

[31] He spake, and there came swarms of flies,

And lice in all their borders.

[32] He gave them hail for rain,

And flaming fire in their land.

[33] He smote their vines also and their fig-trees,

And brake the trees of their borders.

[34] He spake, and the locust came,

And the grasshopper, and that without number,

[35] And did eat up every herb in their land,

And did eat up the fruit of their ground.

[36] He smote also all the first-born in their land,

The chief〖Heb. beginning. See Deut. 21. 17.〗 of all their strength.

[37] And he brought them forth with silver and gold;

And there was not〖Or, none that stumbled.〗 one feeble person among his tribes.

[38] Egypt was glad when they departed;

For the fear of them had fallen upon them.

[39] He spread a cloud for a covering,

And fire to give light in the night.

[40] They asked, and he brought quails,

And satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

[41] He opened the rock, and waters gushed out;

They ran in the dry places like a river.

[42] For he remembered his holy word,

And Abraham his servant.

[43] And he brought forth his people with joy,

And his chosen with singing.

[44] And he gave them the lands of the nations;

And they took the labor of the peoples in possession:

[45] That they might keep his statutes,

And observe his laws.

Praise〖Heb. Hallelujah.〗 ye Jehovah.
