Psalm 106

MSG 1 Hallelujah! Thank God! And why? Because he's good, because his love lasts. NIV 1 Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. MSG 2 But who on earth can do it - declaim God's mighty acts, broadcast all his praises? NIV 2 Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the LORD or fully declare his praise? MSG 3 You're one happy man when you do what's right, one happy woman when you form the habit of justice. NIV 3 Blessed are they who maintain justice, who constantly do what is right. MSG 4 Remember me, God, when you enjoy your people; include me when you save them; NIV 4 Remember me, O LORD, when you show favor to your people, come to my aid when you save them, MSG 5 I want to see your chosen succeed, celebrate with your celebrating nation, join the Hallelujahs of your pride and joy! NIV 5 that I may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may share in the joy of your nation and join your inheritance in giving praise. MSG 6 We've sinned a lot, both we and our parents; We've fallen short, hurt a lot of people. NIV 6 We have sinned, even as our fathers did; we have done wrong and acted wickedly. MSG 7 After our parents left Egypt, they took your wonders for granted, forgot your great and wonderful love. They were barely beyond the Red Sea when they defied the High God NIV 7 When our fathers were in Egypt, they gave no thought to your miracles; they did not remember your many kindnesses, and they rebelled by the sea, the Red Sea. MSG 8 - the very place he saved them! - the place he revealed his amazing power! NIV 8 Yet he saved them for his name's sake, to make his mighty power known. MSG 9 He rebuked the Red Sea so that it dried up on the spot - he paraded them right through! - no one so much as got wet feet! NIV 9 He rebuked the Red Sea, and it dried up; he led them through the depths as through a desert. MSG 10 He saved them from a life of oppression, pried them loose from the grip of the enemy. NIV 10 He saved them from the hand of the foe; from the hand of the enemy he redeemed them. MSG 11 Then the waters flowed back on their oppressors; there wasn't a single survivor. NIV 11 The waters covered their adversaries; not one of them survived. MSG 12 Then they believed his words were true and broke out in songs of praise. NIV 12 Then they believed his promises and sang his praise. MSG 13 But it wasn't long before they forgot the whole thing, wouldn't wait to be told what to do. NIV 13 But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his counsel. MSG 14 They only cared about pleasing themselves in that desert, provoked God with their insistent demands. NIV 14 In the desert they gave in to their craving; in the wasteland they put God to the test. MSG 15 He gave them exactly what they asked for - but along with it they got an empty heart. NIV 15 So he gave them what they asked for, but sent a wasting disease upon them. MSG 16 One day in camp some grew jealous of Moses, also of Aaron, holy priest of God. NIV 16 In the camp they grew envious of Moses and of Aaron, who was consecrated to the LORD. MSG 17 The ground opened and swallowed Dathan, then buried Abiram's gang. NIV 17 The earth opened up and swallowed Dathan; it buried the company of Abiram. MSG 18 Fire flared against that rebel crew and torched them to a cinder. NIV 18 Fire blazed among their followers; a flame consumed the wicked. MSG 19 They cast in metal a bull calf at Horeb and worshiped the statue they'd made. NIV 19 At Horeb they made a calf and worshiped an idol cast from metal. MSG 20 They traded the Glory for a cheap piece of sculpture - a grass-chewing bull! NIV 20 They exchanged their Glory for an image of a bull, which eats grass. MSG 21 They forgot God, their very own Savior, who turned things around in Egypt, NIV 21 They forgot the God who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt, MSG 22 Who created a world of wonders in the Land of Ham, who gave that stunning performance at the Red Sea. NIV 22 miracles in the land of Ham and awesome deeds by the Red Sea. MSG 23 Fed up, God decided to get rid of them - and except for Moses, his chosen, he would have. But Moses stood in the gap and deflected God's anger, prevented it from destroying them utterly. NIV 23 So he said he would destroy them-- had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him to keep his wrath from destroying them. MSG 24 They went on to reject the Blessed Land, didn't believe a word of what God promised. NIV 24 Then they despised the pleasant land; they did not believe his promise. MSG 25 They found fault with the life they had and turned a deaf ear to God's voice. NIV 25 They grumbled in their tents and did not obey the LORD. MSG 26 Exasperated, God swore that he'd lay them low in the desert, NIV 26 So he swore to them with uplifted hand that he would make them fall in the desert, MSG 27 Scattering their children hither and yon, strewing them all over the earth. NIV 27 make their descendants fall among the nations and scatter them throughout the lands. MSG 28 Then they linked up with Baal Peor, attending funeral banquets and eating idol food. NIV 28 They yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor and ate sacrifices offered to lifeless gods; MSG 29 That made God so angry that a plague spread through their ranks; NIV 29 they provoked the LORD to anger by their wicked deeds, and a plague broke out among them. MSG 30 Phinehas stood up and pled their case and the plague was stopped. NIV 30 But Phinehas stood up and intervened, and the plague was checked. MSG 31 This was counted to his credit; his descendants will never forget it. NIV 31 This was credited to him as righteousness for endless generations to come. MSG 32 They angered God again at Meribah Springs; this time Moses got mixed up in their evil; NIV 32 By the waters of Meribah they angered the LORD, and trouble came to Moses because of them; MSG 33 Because they defied God yet again, Moses exploded and lost his temper. NIV 33 for they rebelled against the Spirit of God, and rash words came from Moses' lips. MSG 34 They didn't wipe out those godless cultures as ordered by God; NIV 34 They did not destroy the peoples as the LORD had commanded them, MSG 35 Instead they intermarried with the heathen, and in time became just like them. NIV 35 but they mingled with the nations and adopted their customs. MSG 36 They worshiped their idols, were caught in the trap of idols. NIV 36 They worshiped their idols, which became a snare to them. MSG 37 They sacrificed their sons and daughters at the altars of demon gods. NIV 37 They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons. MSG 38 They slit the throats of their babies, murdered their infant girls and boys. They offered their babies to Canaan's gods; the blood of their babies stained the land. NIV 38 They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood. MSG 39 Their way of life stank to high heaven; they lived like whores. NIV 39 They defiled themselves by what they did; by their deeds they prostituted themselves. MSG 40 And God was furious - a wildfire anger; he couldn't stand even to look at his people. NIV 40 Therefore the LORD was angry with his people and abhorred his inheritance. MSG 41 He turned them over to the heathen so that the people who hated them ruled them. NIV 41 He handed them over to the nations, and their foes ruled over them. MSG 42 Their enemies made life hard for them; they were tyrannized under that rule. NIV 42 Their enemies oppressed them and subjected them to their power. MSG 43 Over and over God rescued them, but they never learned - until finally their sins destroyed them. NIV 43 Many times he delivered them, but they were bent on rebellion and they wasted away in their sin. MSG 44 Still, when God saw the trouble they were in and heard their cries for help, NIV 44 But he took note of their distress when he heard their cry; MSG 45 He remembered his Covenant with them, and, immense with love, took them by the hand. NIV 45 for their sake he remembered his covenant and out of his great love he relented. MSG 46 He poured out his mercy on them while their captors looked on, amazed. NIV 46 He caused them to be pitied by all who held them captive. MSG 47 Save us, God, our God! Gather us back out of exile So we can give thanks to your holy name and join in the glory when you are praised! NIV 47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise. MSG 48 Blessed be God, Israel's God! Bless now, bless always! Oh! Let everyone say Amen! Hallelujah! NIV 48 Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Let all the people say, "Amen!" Praise the LORD.
