Oh 1givethanks to the LORD, 2call upon His name ; 3Makeknown His deeds among the peoples.
2Sing to Him, 4singpraises to Him; a5Speak of all His bwonders.
3cGlory in His holyname ; Let the 6heart of those who seek the LORD be glad.
4Seek the LORD and 7His strength ; 8Seek His facecontinually.
5Remember His d9wonderswhich He has done, His marvels and the 10judgmentseuttered by His mouth,
O seed of 11Abraham, His servant, O sons of 12Jacob, His 13chosenones !
He is the LORD our God ; His 14judgments are in all the earth.
He has 15remembered His covenantforever, The word which He commanded to a 16thousandgenerations,
The 17covenant which He made with Abraham, And His 18oath to Isaac.
Then He 19confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel as an everlastingcovenant,
11Saying, "20To you I will give the land of Canaan As the f21portion of your inheritance,"
When they were only a 22fewmen in number, Very few, and 23strangers in it.
And they wandered about from nation to nation, From one kingdom to anotherpeople.
He 24permittednoman to oppress them, And He 25reprovedkings for their sakes :
"26Do not touch My anointedones, And do My prophetsnoharm."
And He 27called for a famine upon the land ; He 28broke the wholestaff of bread.
He 29sent a manbefore them, Joseph, who was 30sold as a slave.
They afflicted his 31feet with fetters, gHe himself was laid in irons ;
19Until the time that his 32wordcame to pass, The word of the LORDh33tested him.
The 34kingsent and released him, The ruler of peoples, and set him free.
He 35made him lord of his house And ruler over all his possessions,
To iimprison his princesj36at will, That he might teach his elderswisdom.
2337Israel also came into Egypt ; Thus Jacob38sojourned in the land of Ham.
And He 39caused His people to be veryfruitful, And made them strongerthan their adversaries.
He 40turned their heart to hate His people, To 41dealcraftily with His servants.
He 42sentMoses His servant, And 43Aaron, whom He had chosen.
They k44performed His wondrousacts among them, And miracles in the land of Ham.
He 45sentdarkness and made it dark ; And they did not 46rebelagainst His words.
He 47turned their waters into blood And caused their fish to die.
Their landswarmed with 48frogs Even in the 49chambers of their kings.
He spoke, and there came a 50swarm of flies And 51gnats in all their territory.
He lgave them 52hail for rain, And flamingfire in their land.
He 53struckdown their vines also and their figtrees, And shattered the trees of their territory.
He spoke, and 54locustscame, And younglocusts, even withoutnumber,
And ate up allvegetation in their land, And ate up the fruit of their ground.
He also 55struckdownall the firstborn in their land, The 56firstfruits of all their vigor.
Then He brought them out with 57silver and gold, And among His tribesthere was not one who stumbled.
38Egypt was 58glad when they departed, For the 59dread of them had fallen upon them.
He spread a 60cloud for a mcovering, And 61fire to illumine by night.
40nThey 62asked, and He brought63quail, And satisfied them with the o64bread of heaven.
He opened the prock and 65waterflowed out; qIt ran in the dryplaces like a river.
For He 66remembered His holyword With Abraham His servant ;
And He broughtforth His people with joy, His chosenones with a joyful67shout.
He 68gave them also the lands of the rnations, That they 69might takepossession of the fruit of the peoples'labor,
45So that they might 70keep His statutes And observe His laws, sPraisetthe LORD !
