1Praise Yah! Oh, give thanks to יהוה, For He is good! For His kindness is everlasting.
2Who does relate the mighty acts of יהוה? Or declare all His praise?
3Blessed are those who guard right-ruling, Who do righteousness at all times!
4Remember me, O יהוה, in the acceptance of Your people; Visit me with Your deliverance,
5To see the good of Your chosen ones, To rejoice in the gladness of Your nation, To make my boast with Your inheritance.
6We have sinned with our fathers, We have acted perversely, We have done wrong.
7Our fathers in Mitsrayim did not understand Your wonders; They did not remember Your many kindnesses, But rebelled by the sea, the Sea of Reeds.
8But He saved them for His Name’s sake, To make known His might.
9And He rebuked the Sea of Reeds, and it dried up; And He led them through the depths, Through a wilderness.
10And He saved them from the hand of the hater, And redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
11And waters covered their adversaries; Not one of them was left.
12Then they believed His words; They sang His praise.
13They soon forgot His works; They did not wait for His counsel,
14But greedily lusted in the wilderness, And tried Ěl in the desert.
15And He gave them their request, But sent leanness within their being.
16And they were jealous of Mosheh in the camp, Of Aharon, the set-apart one of יהוה,
17Then the earth opened up and swallowed Dathan, And covered the company of Aḇiram.
18And a fire burned in their company; A flame consumed the wrong.
19They made a calf in Ḥorĕḇ, And bowed down to a moulded image.
20Thus they changed My esteem Into the form of an ox that eats grass.
21They forgot Ěl their Saviour, The Doer of great deeds in Mitsrayim,
22Of wonders in the land of Ḥam, Of awesome deeds by the Sea of Reeds.
23Then He said that He would destroy them, Had not Mosheh His chosen one stood before Him in the breach, To turn away His wrath from destroying them.
24They then despised the pleasant land; They did not believe His word,
25And they grumbled in their tents, They did not listen to the voice of יהוה.
26So He lifted up His hand in an oath against them, To make them fall in the wilderness,
27And to make their seed fall among the gentiles, And to scatter them in the lands.
28And they joined themselves to Ba‛al Pe‛or, And ate slaughterings made to the dead.
29Thus they provoked Him with their deeds, And the plague broke out among them.
30Then Pineḥas stood up and intervened, And the plague was stopped.
31And that was reckoned to him for righteousness To all generations forever.
32And they provoked wrath at the waters of Meriḇah, And Mosheh suffered on account of them;
33Because they embittered his spirit, And he spoke rashly with his lips.
34They did not destroy the peoples, As יהוה had commanded them,
35But mixed with the gentiles And learned their works,
36And served their idols, And they became a snare to them.
37And they slaughtered their sons And their daughters to demons,
38And they shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and daughters, Whom they offered to the idols of Kena‛an; And the land was defiled with blood.
39So they became unclean by their own works, And went whoring by their own deeds.
40And the wrath of יהוה burned against His people, And He loathed His own inheritance.
41Then He gave them into the hand of the gentiles, And those who hated them ruled over them.
42And their enemies oppressed them, And they were humbled under their hand.
43Many times He delivered them; But they rebelled in their plans, So they were brought low for their crookedness.
44But He would look on their distress, When He heard their cry,
45And remember His covenant for their sake, And relent according to the greatness of His kindness.
46And He would let them find compassion, Before all those holding them captive.
47Save us, O יהוה our Elohim, And gather us from among the gentiles, To give thanks to Your set-apart Name, To exult in Your praise.
48Blessed be יהוה Elohim of Yisra’ĕl From everlasting to everlasting! And all the people shall say, “Amĕn!” Praise Yah!
