Psalms Chapter 106 (Index)

001  Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

002  Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can show forth all his praise?

003  Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.

004  Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;

005  That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.

006  We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.

007  Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea.

008  Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.

009  He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.

010  And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.

011  And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.

012  Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.

013  They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:

014  But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.

015  And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.

016  They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the LORD.

017  The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.

018  And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.

019  They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.

020  Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.

021  They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;

022  Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea.

023  Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them.

024  Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word:

025  But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD.

026  Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness:

027  To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.

028  They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.

029  Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them.

030  Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was stayed.

031  And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.

032  They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:

033  Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.

034  They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them:

035  But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.

036  And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.

037  Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,

038  And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

039  Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.

040  Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.

041  And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.

042  Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.

043  Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.

044  Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry:

045  And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.

046  He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.

047  Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise.

048  Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.
