105:2 Sing unto him, sing praises unto him; Talk ye of all his marvelous works.
105:3 Glory ye in his holy name: Let the heart of them rejoice that seek Jehovah.
105:4 Seek ye Jehovah and his strength; Seek his face evermore.
105:5 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, His wonders, and the judgments of his mouth,
105:6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, Ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
105:7 He is Jehovah our God: His judgments are in all the earth.
105:8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever, The word which he commanded to a thousand generations,
105:9 `The covenant' which he made with Abraham, And his oath unto Isaac,
105:10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a statute, To Israel for an everlasting covenant,
105:11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, The lot of your inheritance;
105:12 When they were but a few men in number, Yea, very few, and sojourners in it.
105:13 And they went about from nation to nation, From one kingdom to another people.

105:15 `Saying', Touch not mine anointed ones, And do my prophets no harm.
105:16 And he called for a famine upon the land; He brake the whole staff of bread.
105:17 He sent a man before them; Joseph was sold for a servant:
105:18 His feet they hurt with fetters: He was laid in `chains of' iron,
105:19 Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of Jehovah tried him.
105:20 The king sent and loosed him; Even the ruler of peoples, and let him go free.
105:21 He made him lord of his house, And ruler of all his substance;
105:22 To bind his princes at his pleasure, And teach his elders wisdom.

105:24 And he increased his people greatly, And made them stronger than their adversaries.
105:25 He turned their heart to hate his people, To deal subtly with his servants.
105:26 He sent Moses his servant, `And' Aaron whom he had chosen.
105:27 They set among them his signs, And wonders in the land of Ham.
105:28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; And they rebelled not against his words.
105:29 He turned their waters into blood, And slew their fish.
105:30 Their land swarmed with frogs In the chambers of their kings.
105:31 He spake, and there came swarms of flies, And lice in all their borders.
105:32 He gave them hail for rain, `And' flaming fire in their land.
105:33 He smote their vines also and their fig-trees, And brake the trees of their borders.
105:34 He spake, and the locust came, And the grasshopper, and that without number,
105:35 And did eat up every herb in their land, And did eat up the fruit of their ground.
105:36 He smote also all the first-born in their land, The chief of all their strength.

105:38 Egypt was glad when they departed; For the fear of them had fallen upon them.
105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering, And fire to give light in the night.
105:40 They asked, and he brought quails, And satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
105:41 He opened the rock, and waters gushed out; They ran in the dry places `like' a river.
105:42 For he remembered his holy word, `And' Abraham his servant.

105:44 And he gave them the lands of the nations; And they took the labor of the peoples in possession:
105:45 That they might keep his statutes, And observe his laws. Praise ye Jehovah.
