1 Oh agive thanks to the Lord, bcall upon His name; cMake known His deeds among the peoples. 2 Sing to Him, asing praises to Him; bSpeak of all His wonders. 3 Glory in His holy name; Let the aheart of those who seek the Lord be glad. 4 Seek the Lord and aHis strength; bSeek His face continually. 5 Remember His awonders which He has done, His marvels and the bjudgments uttered by His mouth, 6 O seed of aAbraham, His servant, O sons of bJacob, His cchosen ones! 7 He is the Lord our God; His ajudgments are in all the earth. 8 He has aremembered His covenant forever, The word which He commanded to a bthousand generations, 9 The acovenant which He made with Abraham, And His boath to Isaac. 10 Then He aconfirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel as an everlasting covenant, 11 Saying, "aTo you I will give the land of Canaan As the bportion of your inheritance," 12 When they were only a afew men in number, Very few, and bstrangers in it. 13 And they wandered about from nation to nation, From one kingdom to another people. 14 He apermitted no man to oppress them, And He breproved kings for their sakes: 15 "aDo not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm." 16 And He acalled for a famine upon the land; He bbroke the whole staff of bread. 17 He asent a man before them, Joseph, who was bsold as a slave. 18 They afflicted his afeet with fetters, He himself was laid in irons; 19 Until the time that his aword came to pass, The word of the Lord btested him. 20 The aking sent and released him, The ruler of peoples, and set him free. 21 He amade him lord of his house And ruler over all his possessions, 22 To imprison his princes aat will, That he might teach his elders wisdom. 23 aIsrael also came into Egypt; Thus Jacob bsojourned in the land of Ham. 24 And He acaused His people to be very fruitful, And made them stronger than their adversaries. 25 He aturned their heart to hate His people, To bdeal craftily with His servants. 26 He asent Moses His servant, And bAaron, whom He had chosen. 27 They aperformed His wondrous acts among them, And miracles in the land of Ham. 28 He asent darkness and made it dark; And they did not brebel against His words. 29 He aturned their waters into blood And caused their fish to die. 30 Their land swarmed with afrogs Even in the bchambers of their kings. 31 He spoke, and there came a aswarm of flies And bgnats in all their territory. 32 He gave them ahail for rain, And flaming fire in their land. 33 He astruck down their vines also and their fig trees, And shattered the trees of their territory. 34 He spoke, and alocusts came, And young locusts, even without number, 35 And ate up all vegetation in their land, And ate up the fruit of their ground. 36 He also astruck down all the firstborn in their land, The bfirst fruits of all their vigor. 37 Then He brought them out with asilver and gold, And among His tribes there was not one who stumbled. 38 Egypt was aglad when they departed, For the bdread of them had fallen upon them. 39 He spread a acloud for a covering, And bfire to illumine by night. 40 They aasked, and He brought bquail, And satisfied them with the cbread of heaven. 41 He opened the rock and awater flowed out; It ran in the dry places like a river. 42 For He aremembered His holy word With Abraham His servant; 43 And He brought forth His people with joy, His chosen ones with a joyful ashout. 44 He agave them also the lands of the nations, That they bmight take possession of the fruit of the peoples' labor, 45 So that they might akeep His statutes And observe His laws, Praise the Lord!
