1Give thanks to the Lord! Call on his name!
Make his doings known amongst the peoples.
2Sing to him, sing praises to him!
Tell of all his marvellous works.
3Glory in his holy name.
Let the heart of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
4Seek the Lord and his strength.
Seek his face forever more.
5Remember his marvellous works that he has done:
his wonders, and the judgements of his mouth,
6you offspring of Abraham, his servant,
you children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
7He is the Lord, our God.
His judgements are in all the earth.
8He has remembered his covenant forever,
the word which he commanded to a thousand generations,
9the covenant which he made with Abraham,
his oath to Isaac,
10and confirmed it to Jacob for a statute;
to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
11saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan,
the lot of your inheritance,”
12when they were but a few men in number,
yes, very few, and foreigners in it.
13They went about from nation to nation,
from one kingdom to another people.
14He allowed no one to do them wrong.
Yes, he reproved kings for their sakes,
15“Don’t touch my anointed ones!
Do my prophets no harm!”
16He called for a famine on the land.
He destroyed the food supplies.
17He sent a man before them.
Joseph was sold for a slave.
18They bruised his feet with shackles.
His neck was locked in irons,
19until the time that his word happened,
and the Lord’s word proved him true.
20The king sent and freed him,
even the ruler of peoples, and let him go free.
21He made him lord of his house,
and ruler of all of his possessions,
22to discipline his princes at his pleasure,
and to teach his elders wisdom.
23Israel also came into Egypt.
Jacob lived in the land of Ham.
24He increased his people greatly,
and made them stronger than their adversaries.
25He turned their heart to hate his people,
to conspire against his servants.
26He sent Moses, his servant,
and Aaron, whom he had chosen.
27They performed miracles amongst them,
and wonders in the land of Ham.
28He sent darkness, and made it dark.
They didn’t rebel against his words.
29He turned their waters into blood,
and killed their fish.
30Their land swarmed with frogs,
even in the rooms of their kings.
31He spoke, and swarms of flies came,
and lice in all their borders.
32He gave them hail for rain,
with lightning in their land.
33He struck their vines and also their fig trees,
and shattered the trees of their country.
34He spoke, and the locusts came
with the grasshoppers, without number,
35ate up every plant in their land,
and ate up the fruit of their ground.
36He struck also all the firstborn in their land,
the first fruits of all their manhood.
37He brought them out with silver and gold.
There was not one feeble person amongst his tribes.
38Egypt was glad when they departed,
for the fear of them had fallen on them.
39He spread a cloud for a covering,
fire to give light in the night.
40They asked, and he brought quails,
and satisfied them with the bread of the sky.
41He opened the rock, and waters gushed out.
They ran as a river in the dry places.
42For he remembered his holy word,
and Abraham, his servant.
43He brought his people out with joy,
his chosen with singing.
44He gave them the lands of the nations.
They took the labour of the peoples in possession,
45that they might keep his statutes,
and observe his laws.
Praise the Lord!
