Israel's Rebelliousness and the LORD'S Deliverances.

1 aPraise bthe LORD ! Oh 1give thanks to the LORD, for He 2is good ; For 3His lovingkindness is everlasting. 2 Who can speak of the 4mighty deeds of the LORD, Or can show forth all His praise ? 3 How blessed are those who keep cjustice, dWho 5practice righteousness at all times ! 4 Remember me, O LORD, in Your 6favor etoward Your people ; Visit me with Your salvation, 5 That I may see the 7prosperity of Your chosen ones, That I may 8rejoice in the gladness of Your nation, That I may 9glory with Your finheritance. 6 10We have sinned g11like our fathers, We have committed iniquity, we have behaved wickedly. 7 Our fathers in Egypt did not understand Your hwonders ; They 12did not remember iYour abundant kindnesses, But 13rebelled by the sea, at the jRed Sea. 8 Nevertheless He saved them 14for the sake of His name, That He might 15make His power known. 9 Thus He 16rebuked the kRed Sea and it 17dried up, And He 18led them through the deeps, as through the wilderness. 10 So He 19saved them from the lhand of the one who hated them, And 20redeemed them from the mhand of the enemy. 11 21The waters covered their adversaries ; Not one of them was left. 12 Then they 22believed His words ; They 23sang His praise. 13 They quickly 24forgot His works ; They 25did not wait for His counsel, 14 But 26craved intensely in the wilderness, And n27tempted God in the desert. 15 So He 28gave them their request, But 29sent a owasting disease among them. 16 When they became 30envious of Moses in the camp, And of Aaron, the holy one of the LORD, 17 The 31earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, And engulfed the pcompany of Abiram. 18 And a 32fire blazed up in their qcompany ; The flame consumed the wicked. 19 They 33made a calf in Horeb And worshiped a molten image. 20 Thus they 34exchanged their glory For the image of an ox that eats grass. 21 They 35forgot God their Savior, Who had done 36great things in Egypt, 22 r37Wonders in the land of Ham And awesome things by the sRed Sea. 23 Therefore 38He said that He would destroy them, Had not 39Moses His chosen one stood in the breach before Him, To turn away His wrath from destroying them. 24 Then they 40despised the 41pleasant land ; They 42did not believe in His word, 25 But 43grumbled in their tents ; They did not listen to the voice of the LORD. 26 Therefore He t44swore to them That He would cast them down in the wilderness, 27 And that He would 45cast their seed among the nations And 46scatter them in the lands. 28 They 47joined themselves also to uBaal-peor, And ate 48sacrifices offered to the dead. 29 Thus they 49provoked Him to anger with their deeds, And the plague broke out among them. 30 Then Phinehas 50stood up and interposed, And so the 51plague was stayed. 31 And it was 52reckoned to him for righteousness, To all generations forever . 32 They also 53provoked Him to wrath at the waters of vMeribah, So that it 54went hard with Moses on their account ; 33 Because they 55were rebellious against wHis Spirit, He spoke rashly with his lips. 34 They 56did not destroy the peoples, As 57the LORD commanded them, 35 But 58they mingled with the nations And learned their xpractices, 36 And 59served their idols, 60Which became a snare to them. 37 They even 61sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the 62demons, 38 And shed 63innocent blood, The blood of their 64sons and their daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan ; And the land was 65polluted with the blood. 39 Thus they became 66unclean in their ypractices, And 67played the harlot in their deeds. 40 Therefore the 68anger of the LORD was kindled against His people And He 69abhorred His z70inheritance. 41 Then 71He gave them into the hand of the aanations, And those who hated them ruled over them. 42 Their enemies also 72oppressed them, And they were subdued under their bbpower. 43 Many times He would 73deliver them; They, however, were rebellious in their 74counsel, And so 75sank down in their iniquity. 44 Nevertheless He looked upon their distress When He 76heard their cry ; 45 And He 77remembered His covenant for their sake, And cc78relented 79according to the greatness of His lovingkindness. 46 He also made them 80objects of compassion In the presence of all their captors. 47 81Save us, O LORD our God, And 82gather us from among the nations, To give thanks to Your holy name And dd83glory in Your praise. 48 84Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, From everlasting even to everlasting. And let all the people say, "Amen." eePraise ffthe LORD !
