1161 73:2. Remember thy congregation, which thou hast possessed from the beginning. The sceptre of thy inheritance which thou hast redeemed: mount Sion in which thou hast dwelt.
1162 73:3. Lift up thy hands against their pride unto the end; see what things the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
1163 73:4. And they that hate thee have made their boasts, in the midst of thy solemnity. They have set up their ensigns for signs,
1164 73:5. And they knew not both in the going out and on the highest top. As with axes in a wood of trees,
1165 73:6. They have cut down at once the gates thereof, with axe and hatchet they have brought it down.
1166 73:7. They have set fire to thy sanctuary: they have defiled the dwelling place of thy name on the earth.
1167 73:8. They said in their heart, the whole kindred of them together: Let us abolish all the festival days of God from the land.
1168 73:9. Our signs we have not seen, there is now no prophet: and he will know us no more.
1169 73:10. How long, O God, shall the enemy reproach: is the adversary to provoke thy name for ever?
1170 73:11. Why dost thou turn away thy hand: and thy right hand out of the midst of thy bosom for ever?
1171 73:12. But God is our king before ages: he hath wrought salvation in the midst of the earth.
1172 73:13. Thou by thy strength didst make the sea firm: thou didst crush the heads of the dragons in the waters.

1175 73:16. Thine is the day, and thine is the night: thou hast made the morning light and the sun.
1176 73:17. Thou hast made all the borders of the earth: the summer and the spring were formed by thee.
1177 73:18. Remember this, the enemy hath reproached the Lord: and a foolish people hath provoked thy name.
1178 73:19. Deliver not up to beasts the souls that confess to thee: and forget not to the end the souls of thy poor.

1180 73:21. Let not the humble be turned away with confusion: the poor and needy shall praise thy name.
1181 73:22. Arise, O God, judge thy own cause: remember thy reproaches with which the foolish man hath reproached thee all the day.

1186 74:4. The earth is melted, and all that dwell therein: I have established the pillars thereof.
1187 74:5. I said to the wicked: Do not act wickedly: and to the sinners: Lift not up the horn.
1188 74:6. Lift not up your horn on high: speak not iniquity against God.
1189 74:7. For neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the desert hills:
1190 74:8. For God is the judge. One he putteth down, and another he lifteth up:
1191 74:9. For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup of strong wine full of mixture. And he hath poured it out from this to that: but the dregs thereof are not emptied: all the sinners of the earth shall drink.
1192 74:10. But I will declare for ever: I will sing to the God of Jacob.
1193 74:11. And I will break all the horns of sinners: but the horns of the just shall be exalted.
1194 75:1. Unto the end, in praises, a psalm for Asaph: a canticle to the Assyrians.

1202 75:9. Thou hast caused judgment to be heard from heaven: the earth trembled and was still,
1203 75:10. When God arose in judgment, to save all the meek of the earth.
1204 75:11. For the thought of man shall give praise to thee: and the remainders of the thought shall keep holiday to thee.
1205 75:12. Vow ye, and pay to the Lord your God: all you that are round about him bring presents. To him that is terrible,

1207 76:1. Unto the end, for Idithun, a psalm of Asaph.
1208 76:2. I cried to the Lord with my voice; to God with my voice, and he gave ear to me.
1209 76:3. In the days of my trouble I sought God, with my hands lifted up to him in the night, and I was not deceived. My soul refused to be comforted:
1210 76:4. I remembered God, and was delighted, and was exercised, and my spirit swooned away.
1211 76:5. My eyes prevented the watches: I was troubled, and I spoke not.
1212 76:6. I thought upon the days of old: and I had in my mind the eternal years.
1213 76:7. And I meditated in the night with my own heart: and I was exercised and I swept my spirit.

1215 76:9. Or will he cut off his mercy for ever, from generation to generation?
1216 76:10. Or will God forget to shew mercy? or will he in his anger shut up his mercies?
1217 76:11. And I said, Now have I begun: this is the change of the right hand of the most High.
1218 76:12. I remembered the works of the Lord: for I will be mindful of thy wonders from the beginning.
1219 76:13. And I will meditate on all thy works: and will be employed in thy inventions.
1220 76:14. Thy way, O God, is in the holy place: who is the great God like our God?
1221 76:15. Thou art the God that dost wonders. Thou hast made thy power known among the nations:
1222 76:16. With thy arm thou hast redeemed thy people the children of Jacob and of Joseph.
1223 76:17. The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee: and they were afraid, and the depths were troubled.
1224 76:18. Great was the noise of the waters: the clouds sent out a sound. For thy arrows pass:
1225 76:19. The voice of thy thunder in a wheel. Thy lightnings enlightened the world: the earth shook and trembled.
1226 76:20. Thy way is in the sea, and thy paths in many waters: and thy footsteps shall not be known.
1227 76:21. Thou hast conducted thy people like sheep, by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

1230 77:3. How great things have we heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
1231 77:4. They have not been hidden from their children, in another generation. Declaring the praises of the Lord, and his powers, and his wonders which he hath done.
1232 77:5. And he set up a testimony in Jacob: and made a law in Israel. How great things he commanded our fathers, that they should make the same known to their children:
1233 77:6. That another generation might know them. The children that should be born and should rise up, and declare them to their children.
1234 77:7. That they may put their hope in God and may not forget the works of God: and may seek his commandments.
1235 77:8. That they may not become like their fathers, a perverse and exasperating generation. A generation that set not their heart aright: and whose spirit was not faithful to God.
1236 77:9. The sons of Ephraim who bend and shoot with the bow: they have turned back in the day of battle.
1237 77:10. They kept not the covenant of God: and in his law they would not walk.
1238 77:11. And they forgot his benefits, and his wonders that he had shewn them.

1240 77:13. He divided the sea and brought them through: and he made the waters to stand as in a vessel.
1241 77:14. And he conducted them with a cloud by day: and all the night with a light of fire.
1242 77:15. He struck the rock in the wilderness: and gave them to drink, as out of the great deep.
1243 77:16. He brought forth water out of the rock: and made streams run down as rivers.
1244 77:17. And they added yet more sin against him: they provoked the most High to wrath in the place without water.
1245 77:18. And they tempted God in their hearts, by asking meat for their desires.
1246 77:19. And they spoke ill of God: they said: Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?
1247 77:20. Because he struck the rock, and the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed. Can he also give bread, or provide a table for his people?
1248 77:21. Therefore the Lord heard, and was angry: and a fire was kindled against Jacob, and wrath came up against Israel.
1249 77:22. Because they believed not in God: and trusted not in his salvation.
1250 77:23. And he had commanded the clouds from above, and had opened the doors of heaven.
1251 77:24. And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them the bread of heaven.
1252 77:25. Man ate the bread of angels: he sent them provisions in abundance.
1253 77:26. He removed the south wind from heaven: and by his power brought in the southwest wind.
1254 77:27. And he rained upon them flesh as dust: and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea.
1255 77:28. And they fell in the midst of their camp, round about their pavilions.
1256 77:29. So they did eat, and were filled exceedingly, and he gave them their desire:
1257 77:30. they were not defrauded of that which they craved. As yet their meat was in their mouth:
1258 77:31. And the wrath of God came upon them. And he slew the fat ones amongst them, and brought down the chosen men of Israel.
1259 77:32. In all these things they sinned still: and they behaved not for his wondrous works.
1260 77:33. And their days were consumed in vanity, and their years in haste.
1261 77:34. When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned, and came to him early in the morning.
1262 77:35. And they remembered that God was their helper: and the most high God their redeemer.
1263 77:36. And they loved him with their mouth: and with their tongue they lied unto him:
1264 77:37. But their heart was not right with him: nor were they counted faithful in his covenant.
1265 77:38. But he is merciful, and will forgive their sins: and will not destroy them. And many a time did he turn away his anger: and did not kindle all his wrath.
1266 77:39. And he remembered that they are flesh: a wind that goeth and returneth not.
1267 77:40. How often did they provoke him in the desert: and move him to wrath in the place without water?
1268 77:41. And they turned back and tempted God: and grieved the holy one of Israel.
1269 77:42. They remembered not his hand, in the day that he redeemed them from the hand of him that afflicted them:
1270 77:43. How he wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Tanis.
1271 77:44. And he turned their rivers into blood, and their showers that they might not drink.
1272 77:45. He sent amongst them divers sorts of flies, which devoured them: and frogs which destroyed them.
1273 77:46. And he gave up their fruits to the blast, and their labours to the locust.
1274 77:47. And he destroyed their vineyards with hail, and their mulberry trees with hoarfrost.
1275 77:48. And he gave up their cattle to the hail, and their stock to the fire.
1276 77:49. And he sent upon them the wrath of his indignation: indignation and wrath and trouble, which he sent by evil angels.
1277 77:50. He made a way for a path to his anger: he spared not their souls from death, and their cattle he shut up in death.
1278 77:51. And he killed all the firstborn in the land of Egypt: the firstfruits of all their labour in the tabernacles of Cham.
1279 77:52. And he took away his own people as sheep: and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.
1280 77:53. And he brought them out in hope and they feared not: and the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
1281 77:54. And he brought them into the mountain of his sanctuary: the mountain which his right hand had purchased. And he cast out the Gentiles before them: and by lot divided to them their land by a line of distribution.
1282 77:55. And he made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tabernacles.
1283 77:56. Yet they tempted, and provoked the most high God: and they kept not his testimonies.
1284 77:57. And they turned away, and kept not the covenant: even like their fathers they were turned aside as a crooked bow.
1285 77:58. They provoked him to anger on their hills: and moved him to jealousy with their graven things.
1286 77:59. God heard, and despised them, and he reduced Israel exceedingly as it were to nothing.
1287 77:60. And he put away the tabernacle of Silo, his tabernacle where he dwelt among men.
1288 77:61. And he delivered their strength into captivity: and their beauty into the hands of the enemy.
1289 77:62. And he shut up his people under the sword: and he despised his inheritance.
1290 77:63. Fire consumed their young men: and their maidens were not lamented.
1291 77:64. Their priests fell by the sword: and their widows did not mourn.
1292 77:65. And the Lord was awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that hath been surfeited with wine.
1293 77:66. And he smote his enemies on the hinder parts: he put them to an everlasting reproach.
1294 77:67. And he rejected the tabernacle of Joseph: and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:
1295 77:68. But he chose the tribe of Juda, mount Sion which he loved.
1296 77:69. And he built his sanctuary as of unicorns, in the land which he founded for ever.
1297 77:70. And he chose his servant David, and took him from the flocks of sheep: he brought him from following the ewes great with young,
1298 77:71. To feed Jacob his servant and Israel his inheritance.
1299 77:72. And he fed them in the innocence of his heart: and conducted them by the skilfulness of his hands.
1300 78:1. A psalm for Asaph. O God, the heathens are come into thy inheritance, they have defiled thy holy temple: they have made Jerusalem as a place to keep fruit.
1301 78:2. They have given the dead bodies of thy servants to be meat for the fowls of the air: the flesh of thy saints for the beasts of the earth.
1302 78:3. They have poured out their blood as water, round about Jerusalem and there was none to bury them.
1303 78:4. We are become a reproach to our neighbours: a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.
1304 78:5. How long, O Lord, wilt thou be angry for ever: shall thy zeal be kindled like a fire?
1305 78:6. Pour out thy wrath upon the nations that have not known thee: and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.
1306 78:7. Because they have devoured Jacob; and have laid waste his place.
1307 78:8. Remember not our former iniquities: let thy mercies speedily prevent us, for we are become exceeding poor.
1308 78:9. Help us, O God, our saviour: and for the glory of thy name, O Lord, deliver us: and forgive us our sins for thy name's sake:
1309 78:10. Lest they should say among the Gentiles: Where is their God? And let him be made known among the nations before our eyes, By the revenging the blood of thy servants, which hath been shed:
1310 78:11. Let the sighing of the prisoners come in before thee. According to the greatness of thy arm, take possession of the children of them that have been put to death.
1311 78:12. And render to our neighbours sevenfold in their bosom: the reproach wherewith they have reproached thee, O Lord.
1312 78:13. But we thy people, and the sheep of thy pasture, will give thanks to thee for ever. We will shew forth thy praise, unto generation and generation.
1313 79:1. Unto the end, for them that shall be changed, a testimony for Asaph, a psalm.

1341 80:9. Hear, O my people, and I will testify to thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken to me, 10 there shall be no new god in thee: neither shalt thou adore a strange god.

1628 98:9. Exalt ye the Lord our God, and adore at his holy mountain: for the Lord our God is holy.

1632 99:4. Go ye into his gates with praise, into his courts with hymns: and give glory to him. Praise ye his name:
1633 99:5. For the Lord is sweet, his mercy endureth for ever, and his truth to generation and generation.
1634 100:1. A psalm for David himself. Mercy and judgment I will sing to thee, O Lord: I will sing,
1635 100:2. And I will understand in the unspotted way, when thou shalt come to me. I walked in the innocence of my heart, in the midst of my house.
1636 100:3. I will not set before my eyes any unjust thing: I hated the workers of iniquities.
1637 100:4. The perverse heart did not cleave to me: and the malignant, that turned aside from me, I would not know.
1638 100:5. The man that in private detracted his neighbour, him did I persecute. With him that had a proud eye, and an unsatiable heart, I would not eat.
1639 100:6. My eyes were upon the faithful of the earth, to sit with me: the man that walked in the perfect way, he served me.
1640 100:7. He that worketh pride shall not dwell in the midst of my house: he that speaketh unjust things did not prosper before my eyes.
1641 100:8. In the morning I put to death all the wicked of the land: that I might cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of the Lord.
1642 101:1. The prayer of the poor man, when he was anxious, and poured out his supplication before the Lord.
1643 101:2. Hear, O Lord, my prayer: and let my cry come to thee.
1644 101:3. Turn not away thy face from me: in the day when I am in trouble, incline thy ear to me. In what day soever I shall call upon thee, hear me speedily.
1645 101:4. For my days are vanished like smoke, and my bones are grown dry like fuel for the fire.
1646 101:5. I am smitten as grass, and my heart is withered: because I forgot to eat my bread.
1647 101:6. Through the voice of my groaning, my bone hath cleaved to my flesh.
1648 101:7. I am become like to a pelican of the wilderness: I am like a night raven in the house.
1649 101:8. I have watched, and am become as a sparrow all alone on the housetop.
1650 101:9. All the day long my enemies reproached me: and they that praised me did swear against me.
1651 101:10. For I did eat ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping.
1652 101:11. Because of thy anger and indignation: for having lifted me up thou hast thrown me down.
1653 101:12. My days have declined like a shadow, and I am withered like grass.
1654 101:13. But thou, O Lord, endurest for ever: and thy memorial to all generations.
1655 101:14. Thou shalt arise and have mercy on Sion: for it is time to have mercy on it, for the time is come.
1656 101:15. For the stones thereof have pleased thy servants: and they shall have pity on the earth thereof.

1659 101:18. He hath had regard to the prayer of the humble: and he hath not despised their petition.
1660 101:19. Let these things be written unto another generation: and the people that shall be created shall praise the Lord:
1661 101:20. Because he hath looked forth from his high sanctuary: from heaven the Lord hath looked upon the earth.
1662 101:21. That he might hear the groans of them that are in fetters: that he might release the children of the slain:
1663 101:22. That they may declare the name of the Lord in Sion: and his praise in Jerusalem;
1664 101:23. When the people assemble together, and kings, to serve the Lord.
1665 101:24. He answered him in the way of his strength: Declare unto me the fewness of my days.
1666 101:25. Call me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are unto generation and generation.
1667 101:26. In the beginning, O Lord, thou foundedst the earth: and the heavens are the works of thy hands.
1668 101:27. They shall perish but thou remainest: and all of them shall grow old like a garment: And as a vesture thou shalt change them, and they shall be changed.
1669 101:28. But thou art always the selfsame, and thy years shall not fail.
1670 101:29. The children of thy servants shall continue and their seed shall be directed for ever.
1671 102:1. For David himself. Bless the Lord, O my soul: and let all that is within me bless his holy name.

1674 102:4. Who redeemeth thy life from destruction: who crowneth thee with mercy and compassion.
1675 102:5. Who satisfieth thy desire with good things: thy youth shall be renewed like the eagle's.
1676 102:6. The Lord doth mercies, and judgment for all that suffer wrong.
1677 102:7. He hath made his ways known to Moses: his wills to the children of Israel.
1678 102:8. The Lord is compassionate and merciful: longsuffering and plenteous in mercy. 102:9. He will not always be angry: nor will he threaten for ever.
1679 102:10. He hath not dealt with us according to our sins: nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
1680 102:11. For according to the height of the heaven above the earth: he hath strengthened his mercy towards them that fear him.
1681 102:12. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our iniquities from us.
1682 102:13. As a father hath compassion on his children, so hath the Lord compassion on them that fear him:
1683 102:14. For he knoweth our frame. He remembereth that we are dust:
1684 102:15. Man's days are as grass, as the flower of the field so shall he flourish.
1685 102:16. For the spirit shall pass in him, and he shall not be: and he shall know his place no more.
1686 102:17. But the mercy of the Lord is from eternity and unto eternity upon them that fear him: And his justice unto children's children,
1687 102:18. To such as keep his covenant, And are mindful of his commandments to do them.
1688 102:19. The lord hath prepared his throne in heaven: and his kingdom shall rule over all.
1689 102:20. Bless the Lord, all ye his angels: you that are mighty in strength, and execute his word, hearkening to the voice of his orders.
1690 102:21. Bless the Lord, all ye his hosts: you ministers of his that do his will.
1691 102:22. Bless the Lord, all his works: in every place of his dominion, O my soul, bless thou the Lord.
1692 103:1. For David himself. Bless the Lord, O my soul: O Lord my God, thou art exceedingly great. Thou hast put on praise and beauty:
1693 103:2. And art clothed with light as with a garment. Who stretchest out the heaven like a pavilion:
1694 103:3. Who coverest the higher rooms thereof with water. Who makest the clouds thy chariot: who walkest upon the wings of the winds.
1695 103:4. Who makest thy angels spirits: and thy ministers a burning fire.
1696 103:5. Who hast founded the earth upon its own bases: it shall not be moved for ever and ever.
1697 103:6. The deep like a garment is its clothing: above the mountains shall the waters stand.
1698 103:7. At thy rebuke they shall flee: at the voice of thy thunder they shall fear.
1699 103:8. The mountains ascend, and the plains descend into the place which thou hast founded for them.
1700 103:9. Thou hast set a bound which they shall not pass over; neither shall they return to cover the earth.
1701 103:10. Thou sendest forth springs in the vales: between the midst of the hills the waters shall pass.
1702 103:11. All the beasts of the field shall drink: the wild asses shall expect in their thirst.
1703 103:12. Over them the birds of the air shall dwell: from the midst of the rocks they shall give forth their voices.
1704 103:13. Thou waterest the hills from thy upper rooms: the earth shall be filled with the fruit of thy works:
1705 103:14. Bringing forth grass for cattle, and herb for the service of men. That thou mayst bring bread out of the earth:
1706 103:15. And that wine may cheer the heart of man. That he may make the face cheerful with oil: and that bread may strengthen man's heart.
1707 103:16. The trees of the field shall be filled, and the cedars of Libanus which he hath planted:
1708 103:17. There the sparrows shall make their nests. The highest of them is the house of the heron.
1709 103:18. The high hills are a refuge for the harts, the rock for the irchins.
1710 103:19. He hath made the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
1711 103:20. Thou hast appointed darkness, and it is night: in it shall all the beasts of the woods go about:
1712 103:21. The young lions roaring after their prey, and seeking their meat from God.
1713 103:22. The sun ariseth, and they are gathered together: and they shall lie down in their dens.
1714 103:23. Man shall go forth to his work, and to his labour until the evening.
1715 103:24. How great are thy works, O Lord? thou hast made all things in wisdom: the earth is filled with thy riches.
1716 103:25. So is this great sea, which stretcheth wide its arms: there are creeping things without number: Creatures little and great.
1717 103:26. There the ships shall go. This sea dragon which thou hast formed to play therein.
1718 103:27. All expect of thee that thou give them food in season.
1719 103:28. What thou givest to them they shall gather up: when thou openest thy hand, they shall all be filled with good.
1720 103:29. But if thou turnest away thy face, they shall be troubled: thou shalt take away their breath, and they shall fail, and shall return to their dust.
1721 103:30. Thou shalt send forth thy spirit, and they shall be created: and thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
1722 103:31. May the glory of the Lord endure for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works.
1723 103:32. He looketh upon the earth, and maketh it tremble: he troubleth the mountains, and they smoke.
1724 103:33. I will sing to the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
1725 103:34. Let my speech be acceptable to him: but I will take delight in the Lord.
1726 103:35. Let sinners be consumed out of the earth, and the unjust, so that they be no more: O my soul, bless thou the Lord.
1727 104:1. Give glory to the Lord, and call upon his name: declare his deeds among the Gentiles.
1728 104:2. Sing to him, yea sing praises to him: relate all his wondrous works.

1730 104:4. Seek ye the lord, and be strengthened: seek his face evermore.
1731 104:5. Remember his marvellous works which he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth.
1732 104:6. O ye seed of Abraham his servant; ye sons of Jacob his chosen.
1733 104:7. He is the Lord our God: his judgments are in all the earth.
1734 104:8. He hath remembered his covenant for ever: the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
1735 104:9. Which he made to Abraham; and his oath to Isaac:
1736 104:10. And he appointed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting testament:
1737 104:11. Saying: To thee will I give the land of Chanaan, the lot of your inheritance.
1738 104:12. When they were but a small number: yea very few, and sojourners therein:
1739 104:13. And they passed from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people.
1740 104:14. He suffered no man to hurt them: and he reproved kings for their sakes.
1741 104:15. Touch ye not my anointed: and do no evil to my prophets.
1742 104:16. And he called a famine upon the land: and he broke in pieces all the support of bread.
1743 104:17. He sent a man before them: Joseph, who was sold for a slave.
1744 104:18. They humbled his feet in fetters: the iron pierced his soul,
1745 104:19. Until his word came. The word of the Lord inflamed him.
1746 104:20. The king sent, and he released him: the ruler of the people, and he set him at liberty.
1747 104:21. He made him master of his house, and ruler of all his possession.
1748 104:22. That he might instruct his princes as himself, and teach his ancients wisdom.
1749 104:23. And Israel went into Egypt: and Jacob was a sojourner in the land of Cham.
1750 104:24. And he increased his people exceedingly: and strengthened them over their enemies.
1751 104:25. He turned their heart to hate his people: and to deal deceitfully with his servants.
1752 104:26. He sent Moses his servant: Aaron the man whom he had chosen.
1753 104:27. He gave them power to shew them signs, and his wonders in the land of Cham.
1754 104:28. He sent darkness, and made it obscure: and grieved not his words.
1755 104:29. He turned their waters into blood, and destroyed their fish.
1756 104:30. Their land brought forth frogs, in the inner chambers of their kings.
1757 104:31. He spoke, and there came divers sorts of flies and sciniphs in all their coasts.
1758 104:32. He gave them hail for rain, a burning fire in the land.
1759 104:33. And he destroyed their vineyards and their fig trees: and he broke in pieces the trees of their coasts.
1760 104:34. He spoke, and the locust came, and the bruchus, of which there was no number.
1761 104:35. And they devoured all the grass in their land, and consumed all the fruit of their ground.
1762 104:36. And he slew all the firstborn in their land: the firstfruits of all their labour.
1763 104:37. And he brought them out with silver and gold: and there was not among their tribes one that was feeble.
1764 104:38. Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them lay upon them.
1765 104:39. He spread a cloud for their protection, and fire to give them light in the night.
1766 104:40. They asked, and the quail came: and he filled them with the bread of heaven.
1767 104:41. He opened the rock, and waters flowed: rivers ran down in the dry land.
1768 104:42. Because he remembered his holy word, which he had spoken to his servant Abraham.
1769 104:43. And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness.
1770 104:44. And he gave them the lands of the Gentiles: and they possessed the labours of the people:
1771 104:45. That they might observe his justifications, and seek after his law.
1772 105:1. Give glory to the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
1773 105:2. Who shall declare the powers of the Lord? who shall set forth all his praises?
1774 105:3. Blessed are they that keep judgment, and do justice at all times.
1775 105:4. Remember us, O Lord, in the favour of thy people: visit us with thy salvation.
1776 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.
1777 105:6. We have sinned with our fathers: we have acted unjustly, we have wrought iniquity.
1778 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.
1779 105:8. And he saved them for his own name's sake: that he might make his power known.
1780 105:9. And he rebuked the Red Sea and it was dried up: and he led them through the depths, as in a wilderness.
1781 105:10. And he saved them from the hand of them that hated them: and he redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
1782 105:11. And the water covered them that afflicted them: there was not one of them left.
1783 105:12. And they believed his words: and they sang his praises.
1784 105:13. They had quickly done, they forgot his works: and they waited not for his counsel.
1785 105:14. And they coveted their desire in the desert: and they tempted God in the place without water.
1786 105:15. And he gave them their request: and sent fulness into their souls.
1787 105:16. And they provoked Moses in the camp, Aaron the holy one of the Lord.
1788 105:17. The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan: and covered the congregation of Abiron.
1789 105:18. And a fire was kindled in their congregation: the flame burned the wicked.
1790 105:19. They made also a calf in Horeb: and they adored the graven thing.
1791 105:20. And they changed their glory into the likeness of a calf that eateth grass.
1792 105:21. They forgot God, who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt,
1793 105:22. Wondrous works in the land of Cham: terrible things in the Red Sea.
1794 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.
1795 105:24. And they set at nought the desirable land. They believed not his word,
1796 105:25. And they murmured in their tents: they hearkened not to the voice of the Lord.
1797 105:26. And he lifted up his hand over them: to overthrow them in the desert;
1798 105:27. And to cast down their seed among the nations, and to scatter them in the countries.
1799 105:28. They also were initiated to Beelphegor: and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
1800 105:29. And they provoked him with their inventions: and destruction was multiplied among them.
1801 105:30. Then Phinees stood up, and pacified him: and the slaughter ceased.
1802 105:31. And it was reputed to him unto justice, to generation and generation for evermore.
1803 105:32. They provoked him also at the waters of contradiction: and Moses was afflicted for their sakes:
1804 105:33. Because they exasperated his spirit. And he distinguished with his lips.
1805 105:34. They did not destroy the nations of which the Lord spoke unto them.
1806 105:35. And they were mingled among the heathens, and learned their works:
1807 105:36. And served their idols, and it became a stumblingblock to them.
1808 105:37. And they sacrificed their sons, and their daughters to devils.
1809 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,
1810 105:39. And was defiled with their works: and they went aside after their own inventions.
1811 105:40. And the Lord was exceedingly angry with his people: and he abhorred his inheritance.
1812 105:41. And he delivered them into the hands of the nations: and they that hated them had dominion over them.
1813 105:42. And their enemies afflicted them: and they were humbled under their hands:
1814 105:43. Many times did he deliver them. But they provoked him with their counsel: and they were brought low by their iniquities.
1815 105:44. And he saw when they were in tribulation: and he heard their prayer.
1816 105:45. And he was mindful of his covenant: and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.
1817 105:46. And he gave them unto mercies, in the sight of all those that had made them captives.
1818 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.
1819 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.
1820 106:1. Give glory to the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
1821 106:2. Let them say so that have been redeemed by the Lord, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy: and gathered out of the countries.
1822 106:3. From the rising and from the setting of the sun, from the north and from the sea.
1823 106:4. They wandered in a wilderness, in a place without water: they found not the way of a city for their habitation.
1824 106:5. They were hungry and thirsty: their soul fainted in them.
1825 106:6. And they cried to the Lord in their tribulation: and he delivered them out of their distresses.
1826 106:7. And he led them into the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
1827 106:8. Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him: and his wonderful works to the children of men.
1828 106:9. For he hath satisfied the empty soul, and hath filled the hungry soul with good things.
1829 106:10. Such as sat in darkness and in the shadow of death: bound in want and in iron.
1830 106:11. Because they had exasperated the words of God: and provoked the counsel of the most High:
1831 106:12. And their heart was humbled with labours: they were weakened, and there was none to help them.
1832 106:13. Then they cried to the Lord in their affliction: and he delivered them out of their distresses.
1833 106:14. And he brought them out of darkness, and the shadow of death; and broke their bonds in sunder.
1834 106:15. Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him, and his wonderful works to the children of men.
1835 106:16. Because he hath broken gates of brass, and burst iron bars.
1836 106:17. He took them out of the way of their iniquity: for they were brought low for their injustices.
1837 106:18. Their soul abhorred all manner of meat: and they drew nigh even to the gates of death.
1838 106:19. And they cried to the Lord in their affliction: and he delivered them out of their distresses.
1839 106:20. He sent his word, and healed them: and delivered them from their destructions.
1840 106:21. Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him: and his wonderful works to the children of men.
1841 106:22. And let them sacrifice the sacrifice of praise: and declare his works with joy.
1842 106:23. They that go down to the sea in ships, doing business in the great waters:
1843 106:24. These have seen the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.
1844 106:25. He said the word, and there arose a storm of wind: and the waves thereof were lifted up.
1845 106:26. They mount up to the heavens, and they go down to the depths: their soul pined away with evils.
1846 106:27. They were troubled, and reeled like a drunken man; and all their wisdom was swallowed up.
1847 106:28. And they cried to the Lord in their affliction: and he brought them out of their distresses.
1848 106:29. And he turned the storm into a breeze: and its waves were still.
1849 106:30. And they rejoiced because they were still: and he brought them to the haven which they wished for.
1850 106:31. Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him, and his wonderful works to the children of men.
1851 106:32. And let them exalt him in the church of the people: and praise him in the chair of the ancients.
1852 106:33. He hath turned rivers into a wilderness: and the sources of waters into dry ground:
1853 106:34. A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
1854 106:35. He hath turned a wilderness into pools of waters, and a dry land into water springs.
1855 106:36. And hath placed there the hungry; and they made a city for their habitation.
1856 106:37. Anti they sowed fields, and planted vineyards: and they yielded fruit of birth.
1857 106:38. And he blessed them, and they were multiplied exceedingly: and their cattle he suffered not to decrease.
1858 106:39. Then they were brought to be few: and they were afflicted through the trouble of evils and sorrow.
1859 106:40. Contempt was poured forth upon their princes: and he caused them to wander where there was no passing, and out of the way.
1860 106:41. And he helped the poor out of poverty: and made him families like a flock of sheep.
1861 106:42. The just shall see, and shall rejoice, and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
