Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Give thanks to the Lord, proclaim his greatness; tell the nations what he has done. 1 Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done.
2 Sing praise to the Lord; tell the wonderful things he has done. 2 Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts.
3 Be glad that we belong to him; let all who worship him rejoice. 3 Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.
4 Go to the Lord for help; and worship him continually. 4 Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.
5 You descendants of Abraham, his servant; you descendants of Jacob, the man he chose: remember the miracles that God performed and the judgments that he gave. 5 Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,
7 The Lord is our God; his commands are for all the world. 7 O descendants of Abraham his servant, O sons of Jacob, his chosen ones.
8 He will keep his covenant forever, his promises for a thousand generations. 8 He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.
9 He will keep the agreement he made with Abraham and his promise to Isaac. 9 He remembers his covenant forever, the word he commanded, for a thousand generations,
10 The Lord made a covenant with Jacob, one that will last forever. 10 the covenant he made with Abraham, the oath he swore to Isaac.
11 "I will give you the land of Canaan," he said. "It will be your own possession." 11 He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree, to Israel as an everlasting covenant:
12 God's people were few in number, strangers in the land of Canaan. 12 "To you I will give the land of Canaan as the portion you will inherit."
13 They wandered from country to country, from one kingdom to another. 13 When they were but few in number, few indeed, and strangers in it,
14 But God let no one oppress them; to protect them, he warned the kings: 14 they wandered from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another.
15 "Don't harm my chosen servants; do not touch my prophets." 15 He allowed no one to oppress them; for their sake he rebuked kings:
16 The Lord sent famine to their country and took away all their food. 16 "Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm."
17 But he sent a man ahead of them, Joseph, who had been sold as a slave. 17 He called down famine on the land and destroyed all their supplies of food;
18 His feet were kept in chains, and an iron collar was around his neck, 18 and he sent a man before them-- Joseph, sold as a slave.
19 until what he had predicted came true. The word of the Lord proved him right. 19 They bruised his feet with shackles, his neck was put in irons,
20 Then the king of Egypt had him released; the ruler of nations set him free. 20 till what he foretold came to pass, till the word of the LORD proved him true.
21 He put him in charge of his government and made him ruler over all the land, 21 The king sent and released him, the ruler of peoples set him free.
22 with power over the king's officials and authority to instruct his advisers. 22 He made him master of his household, ruler over all he possessed,
23 Then Jacob went to Egypt and settled in that country. 23 to instruct his princes as he pleased and teach his elders wisdom.
24 The Lord gave many children to his people and made them stronger than their enemies. 24 Then Israel entered Egypt; Jacob lived as an alien in the land of Ham.
25 He made the Egyptians hate his people and treat his servants with deceit. 25 The LORD made his people very fruitful; he made them too numerous for their foes,
26 Then he sent his servant Moses, and Aaron, whom he had chosen. 26 whose hearts he turned to hate his people, to conspire against his servants.
27 They did God's mighty acts and performed miracles in Egypt. 27 He sent Moses his servant, and Aaron, whom he had chosen.
28 God sent darkness on the country, but the Egyptians did not obey his command. 28 They performed his miraculous signs among them, his wonders in the land of Ham.
29 He turned their rivers into blood and killed all their fish. 29 He sent darkness and made the land dark-- for had they not rebelled against his words?
30 Their country was overrun with frogs; even the palace was filled with them. 30 He turned their waters into blood, causing their fish to die.
31 God commanded, and flies and gnats swarmed throughout the whole country. 31 Their land teemed with frogs, which went up into the bedrooms of their rulers.
32 He sent hail and lightning on their land instead of rain; 32 He spoke, and there came swarms of flies, and gnats throughout their country.
33 he destroyed their grapevines and fig trees and broke down all the trees. 33 He turned their rain into hail, with lightning throughout their land;
34 He commanded, and the locusts came, countless millions of them; 34 he struck down their vines and fig trees and shattered the trees of their country.
35 they ate all the plants in the land; they ate all the crops. 35 He spoke, and the locusts came, grasshoppers without number;
36 He killed the first-born sons of all the families of Egypt. 36 they ate up every green thing in their land, ate up the produce of their soil.
37 Then he led the Israelites out; they carried silver and gold, and all of them were healthy and strong. 37 Then he struck down all the firstborn in their land, the firstfruits of all their manhood.
38 The Egyptians were afraid of them and were glad when they left. 38 He brought out Israel, laden with silver and gold, and from among their tribes no one faltered.
39 God put a cloud over his people and a fire at night to give them light. 39 Egypt was glad when they left, because dread of Israel had fallen on them.
40 They asked, and he sent quails; he gave them food from heaven to satisfy them. 40 He spread out a cloud as a covering, and a fire to give light at night.
41 He opened a rock, and water gushed out, flowing through the desert like a river. 41 They asked, and he brought them quail and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
42 He remembered his sacred promise to Abraham his servant. 42 He opened the rock, and water gushed out; like a river it flowed in the desert.
43 So he led his chosen people out, and they sang and shouted for joy. 43 For he remembered his holy promise given to his servant Abraham.
44 He gave them the lands of other peoples and let them take over their fields, 44 He brought out his people with rejoicing, his chosen ones with shouts of joy;
45 so that his people would obey his laws and keep all his commands. Praise the Lord! 45 he gave them the lands of the nations, and they fell heir to what others had toiled for--
45 45 that they might keep his precepts and observe his laws. Praise the LORD.
