105 Give thanks to Jehovah,+ call on his name,
Make his deeds known among the peoples!+
2 Sing to him, sing praises* to him,
Ponder over* all his wonderful works.+
3 Boast about his holy name.+
Let the hearts of those seeking Jehovah rejoice.+
4 Search for Jehovah+ and his strength.
Seek his face* constantly.
5 Remember the wonderful works he has performed,
His miracles and the judgments he has pronounced,+
6 You offspring* of Abraham his servant,+
You sons of Jacob, his chosen ones.+
7 He is Jehovah our God.+
His judgments are throughout the earth.+
8 He remembers his covenant forever,+
The promise he made,* to a thousand generations,+
9 The covenant he made with Abraham,+
And the oath he swore to Isaac,+
10 Which he established as a decree to Jacob
And as a lasting covenant to Israel,
11 Saying, “I will give you the land of Caʹnaan+
As your allotted inheritance.”+
12 This was when they were few in number,+
Yes, very few, and they were foreigners in the land.+
13 They walked about from nation to nation,
From one kingdom to another people.+
14 He did not allow any man to oppress them,+
But on their account he reproved kings,+
15 Saying, “Do not touch my anointed ones,
And to my prophets do nothing bad.”+
16 He called down a famine on the land;+
He cut off their supply of bread.*
17 He sent ahead of them a man
Who was sold to be a slave, Joseph.+
18 With fetters they bound* his feet,+
His neck was put in irons;*
19 Until the time that his word proved true,+
The saying of Jehovah is what refined him.
20 The king sent to release him,+
The ruler of the peoples set him free.
21 He made him master of his household,
Ruler over all his property,+
22 To have authority over* his princes as he pleased*
And to teach his elders wisdom.+
23 Then Israel came into Egypt,+
And Jacob lived as a foreigner in the land of Ham.
24 God made his people very fruitful;+
He made them mightier than their adversaries,+
25 Whose hearts he let change to hate his people,
To plot against his servants.+
26 He sent his servant Moses,+
And Aaron,+ whom he had chosen.
27 They performed his signs among them,
His miracles in the land of Ham.+
28 He sent darkness and the land became dark;+
They did not rebel against his words.
29 He changed their waters into blood
And killed their fish.+
30 Their land swarmed with frogs,+
Even in the royal chambers.
31 He ordered the gadflies to invade
And gnats in all their territories.+
32 He turned their rain to hail
And sent lightning* on their land.+
33 He struck their vines and their fig trees
And shattered the trees of their territory.
34 He said that the locusts should invade,
Young locusts without number.+
35 They devoured all the vegetation in the land,
And they devoured the produce of the ground.
36 Then he struck down every firstborn in their land,+
The beginning of their procreative power.
37 He brought his people out with silver and gold;+
And no one among his tribes stumbled.
38 Egypt rejoiced when they left,
For the dread of Israel* had fallen on them.+
39 He spread a cloud to screen them off+
And fire to give light by night.+
40 They asked, and he brought quail;+
He kept satisfying them with bread from heaven.+
41 He opened a rock, and waters flowed out;+
These flowed through the desert like a river.+
42 For he remembered the holy promise he had made to Abraham his servant.+
43 So he brought out his people with exultation,+
His chosen ones with a joyful cry.
44 He gave them the lands of nations;+
They inherited what other peoples had worked hard to produce,+
45 So that they would keep his decrees+
And observe his laws.
