Tell of All His Wondrous Works
105 (A)Oh give thanks to the Lord; (B)call upon his name;
(C)make known his deeds among the peoples!
2 Sing to him, sing praises to him;
(D)tell of all his wondrous works!
3 Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
4 Seek the Lord and his (E)strength;
(F)seek his presence continually!
5 Remember the (G)wondrous works that he has done,
his miracles, and (H)the judgments he uttered,
6 O offspring of (I)Abraham, his servant,
children of Jacob, his (J)chosen ones!
7 He is the Lord our God;
his (K)judgments are in all the earth.
8 He (L)remembers his covenant forever,
the word that he commanded, for (M)a thousand generations,
9 (N)the covenant that he made with Abraham,
his (O)sworn promise to Isaac,
10 which he confirmed to (P)Jacob as a statute,
to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
11 saying, (Q)“To you I will give the land of Canaan
as (R)your portion for an inheritance.”
12 When they were (S)few in number,
of little account, and (T)sojourners in it,
13 wandering from nation to nation,
from one kingdom to another people,
14 he (U)allowed no one to oppress them;
he (V)rebuked kings on their account,
15 saying, (W)“Touch not my anointed ones,
do my prophets no harm!”
16 When he (X)summoned a famine on the land
and (Y)broke all supply[a] of bread,
17 he had (Z)sent a man ahead of them,
Joseph, who was (AA)sold as a slave.
18 His (AB)feet were hurt with fetters;
his neck was put in a collar of iron;
19 until (AC)what he had said came to pass,
the word of the Lord (AD)tested him.
20 (AE)The king sent and (AF)released him;
the ruler of the peoples set him free;
21 he (AG)made him lord of his house
and ruler of all his possessions,
22 to bind[b] his princes at his pleasure
and to teach his elders wisdom.
23 Then (AH)Israel came to Egypt;
Jacob (AI)sojourned in (AJ)the land of Ham.
24 And the Lord (AK)made his people very fruitful
and made them stronger than their foes.
25 He (AL)turned their hearts to hate his people,
to (AM)deal craftily with his servants.
26 He (AN)sent Moses, his servant,
and Aaron, (AO)whom he had chosen.
27 (AP)They performed his signs among them
and miracles in (AQ)the land of Ham.
28 He (AR)sent darkness, and made the land dark;
they (AS)did not rebel[c] against his words.
29 He turned their waters into blood
and (AT)caused their fish to die.
30 Their land swarmed with frogs,
even in (AU)the chambers of their kings.
31 He spoke, and there came (AV)swarms of flies,
(AW)and gnats throughout their country.
32 He gave them hail for rain,
and fiery (AX)lightning bolts through their land.
33 He struck down their vines and fig trees,
and (AY)shattered the trees of their country.
34 He spoke, and the (AZ)locusts came,
young locusts without number,
35 which devoured all the vegetation in their land
and ate up the fruit of their ground.
36 He (BA)struck down all the firstborn in their land,
(BB)the firstfruits of all their strength.
39 He (BF)spread a cloud for a covering,
and fire to give light by night.
40 (BG)They asked, and he (BH)brought quail,
and gave them (BI)bread from heaven in abundance.
41 He opened the rock, and (BJ)water gushed out;
it flowed through (BK)the desert like a river.
42 For he (BL)remembered his holy promise,
and (BM)Abraham, his servant.
