Bible: Psalm 105
Psalm 105 1
105:1 Give thanks to the
Call on his name!
Make known his accomplishments among the nations!
105:2 Sing to him!
Make music to him!
Tell about all his miraculous deeds!
105:3 Boast about his holy name!
Let the hearts of those who seek the
105:4 Seek the
Seek his presence continually!
105:5 Recall the miraculous deeds he performed,
his mighty acts and the judgments he decreed, 2
105:7 He is the
he carries out judgment throughout the earth. 8
105:8 He always remembers his covenantal decree,
the promise he made 9 to a thousand generations –
105:9 the promise 10 he made to Abraham,
the promise he made by oath to Isaac!
105:10 He gave it to Jacob as a decree,
to Israel as a lasting promise, 11
105:11 saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan
as the portion of your inheritance.”
105:12 When they were few in number,
just a very few, and resident aliens within it,
105:13 they wandered from nation to nation,
and from one kingdom to another. 12
105:14 He let no one oppress them;
he disciplined kings for their sake,
Don’t harm my prophets!”
105:16 He called down a famine upon the earth;
he cut off all the food supply. 15
105:17 He sent a man ahead of them 16 –
Joseph was sold as a servant.
105:18 The shackles hurt his feet; 17
his neck was placed in an iron collar, 18
105:19 until the time when his prediction 19 came true.
105:20 The king authorized his release; 22
the ruler of nations set him free.
105:21 He put him in charge of his palace, 23
and made him manager of all his property,
105:22 giving him authority to imprison his officials 24
and to teach his advisers. 25
105:23 Israel moved to 26 Egypt;
Jacob lived for a time 27 in the land of Ham.
105:25 He caused them 31 to hate his people,
and to mistreat 32 his servants.
105:26 He sent his servant Moses,
and Aaron, whom he had chosen.
105:27 They executed his miraculous signs among them, 33
and his amazing deeds in the land of Ham.
105:28 He made it dark; 34
they did not disobey his orders. 35
105:29 He turned their water into blood,
and killed their fish.
105:30 Their land was overrun by frogs,
which even got into the rooms of their kings.
105:31 He ordered flies to come; 36
gnats invaded their whole territory.
105:32 He sent hail along with the rain; 37
there was lightning in their land. 38
105:33 He destroyed their vines and fig trees,
and broke the trees throughout their territory.
105:34 He ordered locusts to come, 39
105:35 They ate all the vegetation in their land,
and devoured the crops of their fields. 40
105:36 He struck down all the firstborn in their land,
the firstfruits of their reproductive power. 41
none of his tribes stumbled.
105:38 Egypt was happy when they left,
for they were afraid of them. 44
105:39 He spread out a cloud for a cover, 45
and provided a fire to light up the night.
105:40 They asked for food, 46 and he sent quails;
he satisfied them with food from the sky. 47
105:41 He opened up a rock and water flowed out;
a river ran through dry regions.
he made to Abraham his servant.
105:43 When he led his people out, they rejoiced;
his chosen ones shouted with joy. 50
105:44 He handed the territory of nations over to them,
and they took possession of what other peoples had produced, 51
105:45 so that they might keep his commands
and obey 52 his laws.
