105:1 O give praise to the Lord; give honour to his name, talking of his doings among the peoples.
105:2 Let your voice be sounding in songs and melody; let all your thoughts be of the wonder of his works.
105:3 Have glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who are searching after the Lord be glad.
105:4 Let your search be for the Lord and for his strength; let your hearts ever be turned to him.
105:5 Keep in mind the great works which he has done; his wonders, and the decisions of his mouth;
105:6 O you seed of Abraham, his servant, you children of Jacob, his loved ones.
105:7 He is the Lord our God: he is judge of all the earth.
105:8 He has kept his agreement in mind for ever, the word which he gave for a thousand generations;
105:9 The agreement which he made with Abraham, and his oath to Isaac;
105:10 And he gave it to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an eternal agreement;
105:11 Saying, To you will I give the land of Canaan, the measured line of your heritage:
105:12 When they were still small in number, and strange in the land;
105:13 When they went about from one nation to another, and from one kingdom to another people.
105:14 He would not let anyone do them wrong; he even kept back kings because of them,
105:15 Saying, Put not your hand on those who have been marked with my holy oil, and do my prophets no wrong.
105:16 And he took away all food from the land, so that the people were without bread.
105:17 He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was given as a servant for a price:
105:18 His feet were fixed in chains; his neck was put in iron bands;
105:19 Till the time when his word came true; he was tested by the word of the Lord.
105:20 The king sent men to take off his chains; even the ruler of the people, who let him go free.
105:21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler over everything he had;
105:22 To give his chiefs teaching at his pleasure, and so that his law-givers might get wisdom from him.
105:23 Then Israel came into Egypt, and Jacob was living in the land of Ham.
105:24 And his people were greatly increased, and became stronger than those who were against them.
105:25 Their hearts were turned to hate against his people, so that they made secret designs against them.
105:26 He sent Moses, his servant, and Aaron, the man of his selection.
105:27 He let his signs be seen among the people, and his wonders in the land of Ham.
105:28 He sent black night and made it dark; and they did not go against his word.
105:29 At his word their waters were turned to blood, and he sent death on all their fish.
105:30 Their land was full of frogs, even in the rooms of the king.
105:31 He gave the word, and there came the dog-fly, and insects over all the land.
105:32 He gave them ice for rain, and flaming fire in their land.
105:33 He gave their vines and their fig-trees to destruction, and the trees of their land were broken down.
105:34 At his word the locusts came, and young locusts more than might be numbered,
105:35 And put an end to all the plants of their land, taking all the fruit of the earth for food.
105:36 He put to death the first child of every family in the land, the first-fruits of their strength.
105:37 He took his people out with silver and gold: there was not one feeble person among them.
105:38 Egypt was glad when they went; for the fear of them had come down on them.
105:39 A cloud was stretched over them for a cover; and he sent fire to give light in the night.
105:40 At the people's request he sent birds, and gave them the bread of heaven for food.
105:41 His hand made the rock open, and the waters came streaming out; they went down through the dry places like a river.
105:42 For he kept in mind his holy word, and Abraham, his servant.
105:43 And he took his people out with joy, the men of his selection with glad cries:
105:44 And gave them the lands of the nations; and they took the work of the peoples for a heritage;
105:45 So that they might keep his orders, and be true to his laws. Give praise to the Lord.
