Bible: Psalm 105:4-15

105:4 Seek the Lord and the strength he gives!

Seek his presence continually!

105:5 Recall the miraculous deeds he performed,

his mighty acts and the judgments he decreed, 1 

105:6 O children 2  of Abraham, 3  God’s 4  servant,

you descendants 5  of Jacob, God’s 6  chosen ones!

105:7 He is the Lord our God;

he carries out judgment throughout the earth. 7 

105:8 He always remembers his covenantal decree,

the promise he made 8  to a thousand generations

105:9 the promise 9  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, 10 

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. 11 

105:14 He let no one oppress them;

he disciplined kings for their sake,

105:15 saying, 12  “Don’t touch my chosen 13  ones!

Don’t harm my prophets!
