CEB 1 Praise the LORD! Give thanks to the LORD because he is good, because his faithful love endures forever. NRS 1 Praise the Lord! O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever. CEB 2 Who could possibly repeat all of the LORD's mighty acts or publicly recount all his praise? NRS 2 Who can utter the mighty doings of the Lord, or declare all his praise? CEB 3 The people who uphold justice, who always do what is right, are truly happy! NRS 3 Happy are those who observe justice, who do righteousness at all times. CEB 4 Remember me, LORD, with the favor you show your people. Visit me with your saving help NRS 4 Remember me, O Lord, when you show favor to your people; help me when you deliver them; CEB 5 so I can experience the good things your chosen ones experience, so I can rejoice in the joy of your nation, so I can praise along with your possession. NRS 5 that I may see the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation, that I may glory in your heritage. CEB 6 We have sinned—right along with our ancestors. We've done what is wrong. We've acted wickedly. NRS 6 Both we and our ancestors have sinned; we have committed iniquity, have done wickedly. CEB 7 Our ancestors in Egypt didn't understand your wondrous works. They didn't remember how much faithful love you have. So they rebelled by the sea—at the Reed Sea. NRS 7 Our ancestors, when they were in Egypt, did not consider your wonderful works; they did not remember the abundance of your steadfast love, but rebelled against the Most High at the Red Sea. CEB 8 But God saved them for the sake of his good name, to make known his mighty power. NRS 8 Yet he saved them for his name's sake, so that he might make known his mighty power. CEB 9 God scolded the Reed Sea, and it dried right up; he led them through the deeps like they were a dry desert. NRS 9 He rebuked the Red Sea, and it became dry; he led them through the deep as through a desert. CEB 10 God saved them from hostile powers; he redeemed them from the power of the enemy. NRS 10 So he saved them from the hand of the foe, and delivered them from the hand of the enemy. CEB 11 But the waters covered over their foes— not one of them survived! NRS 11 The waters covered their adversaries; not one of them was left. CEB 12 So our ancestors trusted God's words; they sang God's praise. NRS 12 Then they believed his words; they sang his praise. CEB 13 But how quickly they forgot what he had done! They wouldn't wait for his advice. NRS 13 But they soon forgot his works; they did not wait for his counsel. CEB 14 They were overcome with craving in the desert; they tested God in the wastelands. NRS 14 But they had a wanton craving in the wilderness, and put God to the test in the desert; CEB 15 God gave them what they asked for; he sent food to satisfy their appetites. NRS 15 he gave them what they asked, but sent a wasting disease among them. CEB 16 But then they were jealous of Moses in the camp, jealous too of Aaron, the LORD's holy one.

NRS 18 Fire also broke out in their company; the flame burned up the wicked. CEB 19 They made a calf at Horeb, bowing down to a metal idol. NRS 19 They made a calf at Horeb and worshiped a cast image. CEB 20 They traded their glorious God for an image of a bull that eats grass. NRS 20 They exchanged the glory of God for the image of an ox that eats grass. CEB 21 They forgot the God who saved them— the one who had done great things in Egypt, NRS 21 They forgot God, their Savior, who had done great things in Egypt, CEB 22 wondrous works in the land of Ham, awesome deeds at the Reed Sea. NRS 22 wondrous works in the land of Ham, and awesome deeds by the Red Sea. CEB 23 So God determined that he would destroy them— except for the fact that Moses, his chosen one, stood in the way, right in front of him, and turned God's destructive anger away. NRS 23 Therefore he said he would destroy them— had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him, to turn away his wrath from destroying them. CEB 24 But then they rejected the land that was so desirable. They didn't trust God's promise. NRS 24 Then they despised the pleasant land, having no faith in his promise. CEB 25 They muttered in their tents and wouldn't listen to the LORD's voice. NRS 25 They grumbled in their tents, and did not obey the voice of the Lord. CEB 26 So God raised his hand against them, making them fall in the desert, NRS 26 Therefore he raised his hand and swore to them that he would make them fall in the wilderness, CEB 27 scattering their offspring among the nations, casting them across many lands. NRS 27 and would disperse their descendants among the nations, scattering them over the lands. CEB 28 They joined themselves to Baal-peor and ate sacrifices offered to the dead. NRS 28 Then they attached themselves to the Baal of Peor, and ate sacrifices offered to the dead; CEB 29 They made God angry by what they did, so a plague broke out against them. NRS 29 they provoked the Lord to anger with their deeds, and a plague broke out among them. CEB 30 Then Phinehas stood up and prayed, and the plague was contained. NRS 30 Then Phinehas stood up and interceded, and the plague was stopped. CEB 31 That's why Phinehas is considered righteous, generation after generation, forever. NRS 31 And that has been reckoned to him as righteousness from generation to generation forever. CEB 32 But they angered God at Meribah's waters, and things went badly for Moses because of them, NRS 32 They angered the Lord at the waters of Meribah, and it went ill with Moses on their account; CEB 33 because they made him bitter so that he spoke rashly with his lips. NRS 33 for they made his spirit bitter, and he spoke words that were rash. CEB 34 They didn't destroy the nations as the LORD had ordered them to do. NRS 34 They did not destroy the peoples, as the Lord commanded them, CEB 35 Instead, they got mixed up with the nations, learning what they did NRS 35 but they mingled with the nations and learned to do as they did.

NRS 37 They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons; CEB 38 They shed innocent blood, the blood of their own sons and daughters— the ones they sacrificed to Canaan's false gods— so the land was defiled by the bloodshed. NRS 38 they poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood. CEB 39 They made themselves unclean by what they did; they prostituted themselves by their actions. NRS 39 Thus they became unclean by their acts, and prostituted themselves in their doings. CEB 40 So the LORD's anger burned against his people; he despised his own possession. NRS 40 Then the anger of the Lord was kindled against his people, and he abhorred his heritage; CEB 41 God handed them over to the nations; people who hated them ruled over them. NRS 41 he gave them into the hand of the nations, so that those who hated them ruled over them. CEB 42 Their enemies oppressed them, and they were humbled under their power. NRS 42 Their enemies oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their power. CEB 43 God delivered them numerous times, but they were determined to rebel, and so they were brought down by their own sin. NRS 43 Many times he delivered them, but they were rebellious in their purposes, and were brought low through their iniquity. CEB 44 But God saw their distress when he heard their loud cries. NRS 44 Nevertheless he regarded their distress when he heard their cry. CEB 45 God remembered his covenant for their sake, and because of how much faithful love he has, God changed his mind.

NRS 46 He caused them to be pitied by all who held them captive. CEB 47 LORD our God, save us! Gather us back together from among all the nations so we can give thanksto your holy name and rejoice in your praise!
