Tell of His Wonderful Works!
(1 Chronicles 16:7-36; Psalm 95:1-11; Psalm 106:1-48)
1Give ye thanks unto Jehovah, call upon his name; make known his acts among the peoples.
2Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him; meditate upon all his wondrous works.
3Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek Jehovah.
4Seek Jehovah and his strength, seek his face continually;
5Remember his wondrous works which he hath done, his miracles and the judgments of his mouth:
6Ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye sons of Jacob, his chosen ones.
7He, Jehovah, is our God; his judgments are in all the earth.
8He is ever mindful of his covenant, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations, —
9Which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;
10And he confirmed it unto Jacob for a statute, unto Israel for an everlasting covenant,
11Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;
12When they were a few men in number, of small account, and strangers in it.
13And they went from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people.
14He suffered no man to oppress them, and reproved kings for their sakes,
15Saying, Touch not mine anointed ones, and do my prophets no harm.
16And he called for a famine upon the land; he broke the whole staff of bread.
17He sent a man before them: Joseph was sold for a bondman.
18They afflicted his feet with fetters; his soul came into irons;
19Until the time when what he said came about: the word of Jehovah tried him.
20The king sent and loosed him the ruler of peoples and let him go free.
21He made him lord of his house, and ruler over all his possessions:
22To bind his princes at his pleasure, and teach his elders wisdom.
23And Israel came into Egypt, and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
24And he made his people exceeding fruitful, and made them mightier than their oppressors.
25He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants.
26He sent Moses his servant, and Aaron whom he had chosen:
27They set his signs among them, and miracles in the land of Ham.
28He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word.
29He turned their waters into blood, and caused their fish to die.
30Their land swarmed with frogs, in the chambers of their kings.
31He spoke, and there came dog-flies, and gnats in all their borders.
32He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land;
33And he smote their vines and their fig-trees, and broke the trees of their borders.
34He spoke, and the locust came, and the cankerworm, even without number;
35And they devoured every herb in their land, and ate up the fruit of their ground.
36And he smote every firstborn in their land, the firstfruits of all their vigour.
37And he brought them forth with silver and gold; and there was not one feeble among their tribes.
38Egypt rejoiced at their departure; for the fear of them had fallen upon them.
39He spread a cloud for a covering, and fire to give light in the night.
40They asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
41He opened the rock, and waters gushed forth; they ran in the dry places like a river.
42For he remembered his holy word, and Abraham his servant;
43And he brought forth his people with gladness, his chosen with rejoicing;
44And he gave them the lands of the nations, and they took possession of the labour of the peoples:
45That they might keep his statutes, and observe his laws. Hallelujah!
