(105-1) Give glory to the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
(105-2) Who shall declare the powers of the Lord? who shall set forth all his praises?
(105-3) Blessed are they that keep judgment, and do justice at all times.
(105-4) Remember us, O Lord, in the favour of thy people: visit us with thy salvation.
(105-5) That we may see the good of thy chosen, that we may rejoice in the joy of thy nation: that thou mayst be praised with thy inheritance.
(105-6) We have sinned with our fathers: we have acted unjustly, we have wrought iniquity.
(105-7) Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt: they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies: And they provoked to wrath going up to the sea, even the Red Sea.
(105-8) And he saved them for his own name’s sake: that he might make his power known.
(105-9) And he rebuked the Red Sea and it was dried up: and he led them through the depths, as in a wilderness.
(105-10) And he saved them from the hand of them that hated them: and he redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
(105-11) And the water covered them that afflicted them: there was not one of them left.
(105-12) And they believed his words: and they sang his praises.
(105-13) They had quickly done, they forgot his works: and they waited not for his counsel.
(105-14) And they coveted their desire in the desert: and they tempted God in the place without water.
(105-15) And he gave them their request: and sent fulness into their souls.
(105-16) And they provoked Moses in the camp, Aaron the holy one of the Lord.
(105-17) The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan: and covered the congregation of Abiron.
(105-18) And a fire was kindled in their congregation: the flame burned the wicked.
(105-19) They made also a calf in Horeb: and they adored the graven thing.
(105-20) And they changed their glory into the likeness of a calf that eateth grass.
(105-21) They forgot God, who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt,
(105-22) Wondrous works in the land of Cham: terrible things in the Red Sea.
(105-23) And he said that he would destroy them: had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach: To turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them.
(105-24) And they set at nought the desirable land. They believed not his word,
(105-25) And they murmured in their tents: they hearkened not to the voice of the Lord.
(105-26) And he lifted up his hand over them: to overthrow them in the desert;
(105-27) And to cast down their seed among the nations, and to scatter them in the countries.
(105-28) They also were initiated to Beelpheor: and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
(105-29) And they provoked him with their inventions: and destruction was multiplied among them.
(105-30) Then Phinees stood up, and pacified him: and the slaughter ceased.
(105-31) And it was reputed to him unto justice, to generation and generation for evermore.
(105-32) They provoked him also at the waters of contradiction: and Moses was afflicted for their sakes:
(105-33) Because they exasperated his spirit. And he distinguished with his lips.
(105-34) They did not destroy the nations of which the Lord spoke unto them.
(105-35) And they were mingled among the heathens, and learned their works:
(105-36) And served their idols, and it became a stumblingblock to them.
(105-37) And they sacrificed their sons, and their daughters to devils.
(105-38) And they shed innocent blood: the blood of their sons and of their daughters which they sacrificed to the idols of Chanaan. And the land was polluted with blood,
(105-39) And was defiled with their works: and they went aside after their own inventions.
(105-40) And the Lord was exceedingly angry with his people: and he abhorred his inheritance.
(105-41) And he delivered them into the hands of the nations: and they that hated them had dominion over them.
(105-42) And their enemies afflicted them: and they were humbled under their hands:
(105-43) Many times did he deliver them. But they provoked him with their counsel: and they were brought low by their iniquities.
(105-44) And he saw when they were in tribulation: and he heard their prayer.
(105-45) And he was mindful of his covenant: and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.
(105-46) And he gave them unto mercies, in the sight of all those that had made them captives.
(105-47) Save us, O Lord, our God: and gather us from among the nations: That we may give thanks to thy holy name, and may glory in thy praise.
(105-48) Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say: So be it, so be it.
