Psalms, Chapter 106

106:1 Hallelujah. Oh give thanks to Yahweh; for he is good; For his loving-kindness [endures] forever.
106:2 Who can utter the mighty acts of Yahweh, Or show forth all his praise?
106:3 Blessed are those who keep justice, And he who does righteousness at all times.
106:4 Remember me, O Yahweh, with the favor that you bear to your people; Oh visit me with your salvation,
106:5 That I may see the prosperity of your chosen, That I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation, That I may glory with your inheritance.
106:6 We have sinned with our fathers, We have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.
106:7 Our fathers did not understand your wonders in Egypt; They did not remember the multitude of your loving-kindnesses, But were rebellious at the sea, even at the Red Sea.
106:8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, That he might make his mighty power to be known.
106:9 He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it was dried up: So he led them through the depths, as through a wilderness.
106:10 And he saved them from the hand of him who hated them, And redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
106:11 And the waters covered their adversaries; There was not one of them left.
106:12 Then they believed his words; They sang his praise.
106:13 They soon forgot his works; They did not wait for his counsel,
106:14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, And tried God in the desert.
106:15 And he gave them their request, But sent leanness into their soul.
106:16 They envied Moses also in the camp, [And] Aaron the saint of Yahweh.
106:17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, And covered the company of Abiram.
106:18 And a fire was kindled in their company; The flame burned up the wicked.
106:19 They made a calf in Horeb, And worshiped a molten image.
106:20 Thus they exchanged his glory For the likeness of an ox that eats grass.
106:21 They forgot God their Savior, Who had done great things in Egypt,
106:22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, [And] awesome works by the Red Sea.
106:23 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].
106:24 Yes, they despised the pleasant land, They did not believe his word,
106:25 But murmured in their tents, And did not listen to the voice of Yahweh.
106:26 Therefore he swore to them, That he would overthrow them in the wilderness,
106:27 And that he would cast down their seed among the nations, And scatter them in the lands.
106:28 They joined themselves also to Baal-peor, And ate the sacrifices of the dead.
106:29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their doings; And the plague broke in on them.
106:30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment; And so the plague was stopped.
106:31 And that was reckoned to him for righteousness, To all generations forevermore.
106:32 They angered him also at the waters of Meribah, So that it went ill with Moses for their sakes;
106:33 Because they were rebellious against his spirit, And he spoke unadvisedly with his lips.
106:34 They did not destroy the peoples, As Yahweh commanded them,
106:35 But mingled themselves with the nations, And learned their works,
106:36 And served their idols, Which became a snare to them.
106:37 Yes, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons,
106:38 And shed innocent blood, Even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with blood.
106:39 Thus they were defiled with their works, And prostituted in their doings.
106:40 Therefore the wrath of Yahweh was kindled against his people, And he was disgusted with his inheritance.
106:41 And he gave them into the hand of the nations; And those who hated them ruled over them.
106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them, And they were brought into subjection under their hand.
106:43 Many times he delivered them; But they were rebellious in their counsel, And were brought low in their iniquity.
106:44 Nevertheless he regarded their distress, When he heard their cry:
106:45 And he remembered for them his covenant, And repented according to the multitude of his loving-kindnesses.
106:46 He made them also to be pitied Of all those who carried them captive.
106:47 Save us, O Yahweh our God, And gather us from among the nations, To give thanks to your holy name, And to triumph in your praise.
106:48 Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Israel, From everlasting even to everlasting. And let all the people say, Amen, Hallelujah.
