The Lord's Wonders in Behalf of Israel
(1 Chronicles 16.7-22)
1O give thanks unto the Lord;
call upon his name:
make known his deeds among the people.
2Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him:
talk ye of all his wondrous works.
3Glory ye in his holy name:
let the heart of them rejoice
that seek the Lord.
4Seek the Lord, and his strength:
seek his face evermore.
5Remember his marvelous works that he hath done;
his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
6O ye seed of Abraham his servant,
ye children of Jacob his chosen.
7He is the Lord our God:
his judgments are in all the earth.
8He hath remembered his covenant for ever,
the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
9 # Gen 12.7; 17.8; Gen 26.3. Which covenant he made with Abraham,
and his oath unto Isaac;
10 # Gen 28.13. and confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law,
and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:
11saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan,
the lot of your inheritance.
12When they were but a few men in number;
yea, very few, and strangers in it;
13when they went from one nation to another,
from one kingdom to another people;
14 # Gen 20.3-7. he suffered no man to do them wrong:
yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;
15 saying, Touch not mine anointed,
and do my prophets no harm.
16 # Gen 41.53-57. Moreover he called for a famine upon the land:
he brake the whole staff of bread.
17 # Gen 37.28; 45.5. He sent a man before them,
even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:
18 # Gen 39.20—40.23. whose feet they hurt with fetters:
he was laid in iron:
19until the time that his word came:
the word of the Lord tried him.
20 # Gen 41.14. The king sent and loosed him;
even the ruler of the people,
and let him go free.
21 # Gen 41.39-41. He made him lord of his house,
and ruler of all his substance:
22to bind his princes at his pleasure;
and teach his senators wisdom.
23 # Gen 46.6. Israel also came into Egypt;
and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.#Gen 47.11.
24 # Exod 1.7-14. And he increased his people greatly;
and made them stronger than their enemies.
25He turned their heart to hate his people,
to deal subtilely with his servants.
26 # Exod 3.1—4.17. He sent Moses his servant;
and Aaron whom he had chosen.
27They showed his signs among them,
and wonders in the land of Ham.
28 # Exod 10.21-23. He sent darkness, and made it dark;
and they rebelled not against his word.
29 # Exod 7.17-21. He turned their waters into blood,
and slew their fish.
30 # Exod 8.1-6. Their land brought forth frogs in abundance,
in the chambers of their kings.
31 # Exod 8.20-24; Exod 8.16,17. He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies,
and lice in all their coasts.
32 # Exod 9.22-25. He gave them hail for rain,
and flaming fire in their land.
33He smote their vines also and their fig trees;
and brake the trees of their coasts.
34 # Exod 10.12-15. He spake, and the locusts came,
and caterpillars, and that without number,
35and did eat up all the herbs in their land,
and devoured the fruit of their ground.
36 # Exod 12.29. He smote also all the firstborn in their land,
the chief of all their strength.
37 # Exod 12.33-36. He brought them forth also with silver and gold:
and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
38Egypt was glad when they departed:
for the fear of them fell upon them.
39 # Exod 13.21,22. He spread a cloud for a covering;
and fire to give light in the night.
40 # Exod 16.2-15. The people asked, and he brought quails,
and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
41 # Exod 17.1-7; Num 20.2-13. He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out;
they ran in the dry places like a river.
42For he remembered his holy promise,
and Abraham his servant.
43And he brought forth his people with joy,
and his chosen with gladness:
44 # Josh 11.16-23. and gave them the lands of the heathen:
and they inherited the labor of the people;
45that they might observe his statutes,
and keep his laws.
Praise ye the Lord.
