1 Praise the Lord, and call upon his Name:
declare his works among the people.
2 Sing unto him, sing praise unto him, and
talk of all his wondrous works.
3 Rejoice in his holy Name, let the heart of
them that seek the Lord, rejoice.
4 Seek the Lord and his strength: seek his
5 Remember his marvelous works that he
hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth,
6 Ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob, which are his elect.
7 He is the Lord our God: his judgments are through all the earth.
8 He hath always remembered his covenant, and promise, that he made to a thousand
9 Even that which he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac:
10 And since hath confirmed it to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance.
12 Albeit they were few in number, yea very few, and strangers in the land,
13 And walked about from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people,
14 Yet suffered he no man to do them wrong, but reproved Kings for their sakes, saying,
15 Touch not mine anointed, and do my Prophets no harm.
16 Moreover, he called a famine upon the land, and utterly brake the staff of bread.
17 But he sent a man before them: Joseph was sold for a slave.
18 They held his feet in the stocks, and he was laid in irons,
19 Until his appointed time came, and the counsel of the Lord had tried him.
20 The King sent and loosed him: even the Ruler of the people delivered him.
21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance,
22 That he should bind his princes unto his will, and teach his Ancients wisdom.
23 Then Israel came to Egypt, and Jacob was a stranger in the land of Ham.
24 And he increased his people exceedingly, and made them stronger than their
25 He turned their heart to hate his people, and to deal craftily with his servants.
26 Then sent he Moses his servant, and Aaron whom he had chosen.
27 They showed among them the message of his signs, and wonders in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness, and made it dark: and they were not disobedient unto his
29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.
30 Their land brought forth frogs, even in their King’s chambers.
31 He spake, and there came swarms of flies and lice in all their quarters.
32 He gave them hail for rain, and flames of fire in their land.
33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees, and brake down the trees in their coasts.
34 He spake and the grasshoppers came, and caterpillars innumerable,
35 And did eat up all the grass in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.
36 He smote also all the firstborn in their land, even the beginning of all their strength.
37 He brought them forth also with silver and gold, and there was none feeble among their
38 Egypt was glad at their departing: for the fear of them had fallen upon them.
39 He spread a cloud to be a covering, and fire to give light in the night.
40 They asked, and he brought quails, and he filled them with the bread of heaven.
41 He opened the rock, and the water flowed out, and ran in the dry places like a river.
42 For he remembered his holy promise to Abraham his servant,
43 And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness,
44 And gave them the lands of the heathen, and they took the labors of the people in
45 That they might keep his statutes, and observe his Laws. Praise ye the Lord.
