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.
7 He is the Lord our God; ♦︎
his judgements are in all the earth.
8 He has always been mindful of his covenant, ♦︎
the promise that he made for a thousand generations:
9 The covenant he made with Abraham, ♦︎
the oath that he swore to Isaac,
10 Which he established as a statute for Jacob, ♦︎
an everlasting covenant for Israel,
11 Saying, To you will I give the land of Canaan ♦︎
to be the portion of your inheritance.
12 When they were but few in number, ♦︎
of little account, and sojourners in the land,
13 Wandering from nation to nation, ♦︎
from one kingdom to another people,
14 He suffered no one to do them wrong ♦︎
and rebuked even kings for their sake,
15 Saying, Touch not my anointed ♦︎
and do my prophets no harm.
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.
23 Then Israel came into Egypt; ♦︎
Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
24 And the Lord made his people exceedingly fruitful; ♦︎
he made them too many for their adversaries,
25 Whose heart he turned, so that they hated his people ♦︎
and dealt craftily with his servants.
26 Then sent he Moses his servant ♦︎
and Aaron whom he had chosen.
27 He showed his signs through their word ♦︎
and his wonders in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness and it grew dark; ♦︎
yet they did not heed his words.
29 He turned their waters into blood ♦︎
and slew all their fish.
30 Their land swarmed with frogs, ♦︎
even in their kings chambers.
31 He spoke the word, and there came clouds of flies, ♦︎
swarms of gnats within all their borders.
32 He gave them hailstones for rain ♦︎
and flames of lightning in their land.
33 He blasted their vines and their fig trees ♦︎
and shattered trees across their country.
34 He spoke the word, and the grasshoppers came ♦︎
and young locusts without number;
35 They ate every plant in their land ♦︎
and devoured the fruit of their soil.
36 He smote all the firstborn in their land, ♦︎
the first fruits of all their strength.
37 Then he brought them out with silver and gold; ♦︎
there was not one among their tribes that stumbled.
38 Egypt was glad at their departing, ♦︎
for a dread of them had fallen upon them.
39 He spread out a cloud for a covering ♦︎
and a fire to light up the night.
40 They asked and he brought them quails; ♦︎
he satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out ♦︎
and ran in the dry places like a river.
42 For he remembered his holy word ♦︎
and Abraham, his servant.
43 So he brought forth his people with joy, ♦︎
his chosen ones with singing.
44 He gave them the lands of the nations ♦︎
and they took possession of the fruit of their toil,
45 That they might keep his statutes ♦︎
and faithfully observe his laws.
