Psalms 105 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

105:1Oh give thanks unto Jehovah, call upon his name;

Make known among the peoples his doings.

105:2Sing unto him, sing praises unto him;

Talk ye of all his marvelous works.

105:3Glory ye in his holy name:

Let the heart of them rejoice that seek Jehovah.

105:4Seek ye Jehovah and his strength;

Seek his face evermore.

105:5Remember his marvellous works that he hath done,

His wonders, and the judgments of his mouth,

105:6O ye seed of Abraham his servant,

Ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.

105:7He is Jehovah our God:

His judgments are in all the earth.

105:8He hath remembered his covenant for ever,

The word which he commanded to a thousand generations,

105:9The covenant which he made with Abraham,

And his oath unto Isaac,

105:10And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a statute,

To Israel for an everlasting covenant,

105:11Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan,

The lot of your inheritance;

105:12When they were but a few men in number,

Yea, very few, and sojourners in it.

105:13And they went about from nation to nation,

From one kingdom to another people.

105:14He suffered no man to do them wrong;

Yea, he reproved kings for their sakes,

105:15Saying, Touch not mine anointed ones,

And do my prophets no harm.

105:16And he called for a famine upon the land;

He brake the whole staff of bread.

105:17He sent a man before them;

Joseph was sold for a servant:

105:18His feet they hurt with fetters:

He was laid in chains of iron,

105:19Until the time that his word came to pass,

The word of Jehovah tried him.

105:20The king sent and loosed him;

Even the ruler of peoples, and let him go free.

105:21He made him lord of his house,

And ruler of all his substance;

105:22To bind his princes at his pleasure,

And teach his elders wisdom.

105:23Israel also came into Egypt;

And Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.

105:24And he increased his people greatly,

And made them stronger than their adversaries.

105:25He turned their heart to hate his people,

To deal subtly with his servants.

105:26He sent Moses his servant,

And Aaron whom he had chosen.

105:27They set among them his signs,

And wonders in the land of Ham.

105:28He sent darkness, and made it dark;

And they rebelled not against his words.

105:29He turned their waters into blood,

And slew their fish.

105:30Their land swarmed with frogs In the chambers of their kings.

105:31He spake, and there came swarms of flies,

And lice in all their borders.

105:32He gave them hail for rain,

And flaming fire in their land.

105:33He smote their vines also and their fig-trees,

And brake the trees of their borders.

105:34He spake, and the locust came,

And the grasshopper, and that without number,

105:35And did eat up every herb in their land,

And did eat up the fruit of their ground.

105:36He smote also all the first-born in their land,

The chief of all their strength.

105:37And he brought them forth with silver and gold;

And there was not one feeble person among his tribes.

105:38Egypt was glad when they departed;

For the fear of them had fallen upon them.

105:39He spread a cloud for a covering,

And fire to give light in the night.

105:40They asked, and he brought quails,

And satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

105:41He opened the rock, and waters gushed out;

They ran in the dry places like a river.

105:42For he remembered his holy word,

And Abraham his servant.

105:43And he brought forth his people with joy,

And his chosen with singing.

105:44And he gave them the lands of the nations;

And they took the labor of the peoples in possession:

105:45That they might keep his statutes,

And observe his laws.

Praise ye Jehovah.
