Praise to Yahweh for His Faithfulness in Israel’s History

1 Praise Yah.a Give thanks to Yahweh, for [he is] good, for his loyal love [is] forever. 2 Who can utter the mighty deeds of Yahweh, [or] proclaim all his praise? 3 Blessed are [those who] observe justice, [he who] does righteousness at all times. 4 Remember me, O Yahweh, when [you show] favor to your people. Look after me when you deliver, 5 that [I] may see the good [done] your chosen ones, to be glad in the joy of your nation, to glory together with your inheritance. 6 We have sinned [along] with our ancestors.b We have committed iniquity; we have incurred guilt. 7 Our ancestorsc in Egypt did not understand your wonderful works. They did not remember your many acts of loyal love, and [so] they rebelled by [the] sea at {the Red Sea}.d 8 Yet he saved them for the sake of his name, to make known his might. 9 So he rebuked {the Red Sea},e and it dried up, and he led them through the deep as [through] a desert. 10 Thus he saved them from [the] hand of [the] hater and redeemed them from [the] hand of [the] enemy. 11 But waters covered their adversaries; not one of them survived. 12 Then they believed his words; they sang his praise. 13 They quickly forgot his works; they did not wait for his counsel. 14 And they {craved intensely}f in the wilderness, and tested God in [the] desert. 15 So he gave to them their request, but he sent leanness into their souls.g 16 And they were jealous of Moses in the camp, [and] of Aaron, the holy one of Yahweh. 17 [The] earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and it covered over the gang of Abiram. 18 Also fire burned in their assembly; [the] flame devoured [the] wicked. 19 They made a calf at Horeb and bowed down to a cast image. 20 And [so] they exchanged their glory for an image of an ox that eats grass. 21 They forgot God their Savior, who had done great things in Egypt, 22 wonders in the land of Ham, awesome deeds by {the Red Sea}.h 23 So he said he would exterminate them, had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him, to reverse his wrath from destroying [them]. 24 Then they refused the desirable land; they did not believe his word, 25 but grumbled in their tents. They did not obey the voice of Yahweh. 26 So {he made an oath}i against them, to make them drop in the wilderness, 27 and to dispersej their {descendants}k among the nations and to scatter them among the lands. 28 They also attached themselves to Baal of Peor, and they ate sacrifices offered to [the] dead.l 29 Thus they provoked to anger by their deeds, and a plague broke out among them. 30 Then Phinehas stood up and intervened, and [so] the plague was stopped, 31 and it was reckoned to him as righteousness {throughout all generations}.m 32 They also angered [God] at the waters of Meribah, and it went badly for Moses on account of them, 33 because they rebelled against his Spirit,n and he spoke thoughtlessly with his lips. 34 They did not exterminate the peoples, as Yahweh had commanded them, o 35 but they mingled with the nations and learned their works, 36 and served their idols, which becamep a snare to them. 37 They even sacrificed their sons and daughters to the demons, 38 and they poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and [so] the land was defiled with the blood.q 39 And they became unclean by their works, and were unfaithful in their deeds. 40 So Yahweh's anger burned against his people, and he abhorred his inheritance. 41 Then he gave them into [the] hand of [the] nations, and those who hated them ruled over them. 42 And their enemies oppressed them, and they were subdued under their hand. 43 Many times he delivered them, but they rebelled in their counsel, and were brought low by their iniquity. 44 Yet he looked upon their distress when he heard their cry. 45 And he remembered his covenant with them, and relented based on the abundance of his loyal love. 46 And he {let them find compassion}r before all their captors. 47 Save us, O Yahweh our God, and gather us from the nations, so that [we may] give thanks to your holy name [and] boast in your praise. 48 Blessed [is] Yahweh, the God of Israel, from everlasting and to everlasting. And let all the people say, "Amen!" Praise Yah.s
