105 GIVE thanks to Jehovah, call upon his name,+ Make known among the peoples his dealings.+ 2 Sing to him, make melody to him,+ Concern yourselves with all his wonderful works.+ 3 Make YOUR boast in his holy name.+ Let the heart of those seeking Jehovah rejoice.+ 4 Search for Jehovah and his strength.+ Seek his face constantly.+ 5 Remember his wonderful works that he has performed,+ His miracles and the judicial decisions of his mouth,+ 6 O YOU seed of Abraham his servant,+ YOU sons of Jacob, his chosen ones.+ 7 He is Jehovah our God.+ His judicial decisions are in all the earth.+ 8 He has remembered his covenant even to time indefinite,+ The word that he commanded, to a thousand generations,+ 9 Which [covenant] he concluded* with Abraham,+ And his sworn statement to Isaac,+ 10 And which [statement]* he kept standing as a regulation even to Jacob, As an indefinitely lasting covenant even to Israel,+ 11 Saying: “To you I shall give the land of Ca′naan+ As the allotment of YOUR inheritance.”+ 12 [This was] when they* happened to be few in number,+ Yes, very few, and alien residents in it.+ 13 And they kept walking about from nation to nation,+ From one kingdom to another people.+ 14 He did not allow any human* to defraud them,+ But on their account he reproved kings,+ 15 [Saying:] “Do not YOU men touch my anointed ones,*+ And to my prophets do nothing bad.”+ 16 And he proceeded to call for a famine upon the land;+ He broke every rod around which ring-shaped loaves were suspended.*+ 17 He sent ahead of them a man* Who was sold to be a slave, Joseph.+ 18 With fetters they afflicted his feet,+ Into irons his soul came;+ 19 Until the time that his word* came,+ The saying* of Jehovah itself refined him.+ 20 The king sent that he might release him,+ The ruler of the peoples, that he might let him loose. 21 He set him as master to his household+ And as ruler over all his property,+ 22 To bind his princes agreeably to his soul*+ And that he might teach wisdom to even his elderly men.+ 23 And Israel proceeded to come into Egypt,+ And Jacob himself resided as an alien in the land of Ham.+ 24 And he kept making his people very fruitful,+ And gradually made them mightier than their adversaries.+ 25 He let their heart change to hate his people,+ To behave cunningly against his servants.+ 26 He sent Moses his servant,+ Aaron whom he had chosen.+ 27 They* set among them the matters of his signs,+ And the miracles in the land of Ham.+ 28 He sent darkness and so made it dark;+ And they did not rebel against his words.+ 29 He changed their waters into blood,+ And proceeded to put their fish to death.+ 30 Their land swarmed with frogs,+ In the interior rooms of their kings. 31 He said that the gadflies should come in,+ Gnats in all their territories.+ 32 He made their downpours hail,+ A flaming fire on their land.+ 33 And he proceeded to strike their vines and their fig trees And to break the trees of their territory.+ 34 He said that the locusts should come in,+ And a species of locust,* even without number.+ 35 And they went eating all the vegetation in their land;+ They also went eating the fruitage of their ground. 36 And he proceeded to strike down every firstborn in their land,+ The beginning of all their generative power.+ 37 And he began to bring them out with silver and gold;+ And among his tribes there was no one stumbling along. 38 Egypt rejoiced when they went out, For the dread of them had fallen upon them.+ 39 He spread out a cloud for a screen,+ And fire to give light by night.+ 40 They* asked, and he proceeded to bring quails,+ And with bread from heaven he kept satisfying them.+ 41 He opened a rock, and waters began to flow out;+ These went through the waterless regions as a river.+ 42 For he remembered his holy word* with Abraham his servant.+ 43 So he brought out his people with exultation,+ His chosen ones even with a joyful cry.+ 44 And gradually he gave them the lands of the nations,+ And they kept taking possession of the product of the hard work of national groups,+ 45 To the end that they might keep his regulations+ And observe his own laws.+ Praise Jah, YOU people!+
