Psalm 106
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1Praise YAH, give thanks to YHWH, for [He is] good, for His kindness [is] for all time!

2Who utters the mighty acts of YHWH? Sounds all His praise?

3O the blessedness of those keeping judgment, || Doing righteousness at all times.

4Remember me, O YHWH, || With the favor of Your people, || Look after me in Your salvation.

5To look on the good of Your chosen ones, || To rejoice in the joy of Your nation, || To boast myself with Your inheritance.

6We have sinned with our fathers, || We have done perversely, we have done wickedly.

7Our fathers in Egypt, || Have not considered wisely Your wonders, || They have not remembered || The abundance of Your kind acts, || And provoke by the sea, at the Sea of Suph.

8And He saves them for His Name’s sake, || To make His might known,

9And rebukes the Sea of Suph, and it is dried up, || And causes them to go || Through depths as a wilderness.

10And He saves them from the hand || Of him who is hating, || And redeems them from the hand of the enemy.

11And waters cover their adversaries, || One of them has not been left.

12And they believe in His words, they sing His praise,

13They have hurried—forgotten His works, || They have not waited for His counsel.

14And they lust greatly in a wilderness, || And try God in a desert.

15And He gives to them their request, || And sends leanness into their soul.

16And they are envious of Moses in the camp, || Of Aaron, YHWH’s holy one.

17Earth opens, and swallows up Dathan, || And covers over the company of Abiram.

18And fire burns among their company, || A flame sets the wicked on fire.

19They make a calf in Horeb, || And bow themselves to a molten image,

20And change their glory || Into the form of an ox eating herbs.

21They have forgotten God their Savior, || The doer of great things in Egypt,

22Of wonderful things in the land of Ham, || Of fearful things by the Sea of Suph.

23And He commands to destroy them, || Unless Moses, His chosen one, || Had stood in the breach before Him, || To turn back His wrath from destroying.

24And they kick against the desirable land, || They have not given credence to His word.

25And they murmur in their tents, || They have not listened to the voice of YHWH.

26And He lifts up His hand to them, || To cause them to fall in a wilderness,

27And to cause their seed to fall among nations, || And to scatter them through lands.

28And they are coupled to Ba‘al-Peor, || And eat the sacrifices of the dead,

29And they provoke to anger by their actions, || And a plague breaks forth on them,

30And Phinehas stands, and executes judgment, || And the plague is restrained,

31And it is reckoned to him for righteousness, || From generation to generation—for all time.

32And they cause wrath by the waters of Meribah, || And it is evil to Moses for their sakes,

33For they have provoked his spirit, || And he speaks wrongfully with his lips.

34They have not destroyed the peoples, || As YHWH had commanded to them,

35And mix themselves among nations, and learn their works,

36And serve their idols, || And they are for a snare to them.

37And they sacrifice their sons and their daughters to the demons,

38And they shed innocent blood—Blood of their sons and of their daughters, || Whom they have sacrificed to idols of Canaan, || And the land is profaned with blood.

39And they are defiled with their works, || And commit whoredom in their habitual doings.

40And the anger of YHWH || Is kindled against His people, || And He detests His inheritance.

41And gives them into the hand of nations, || And those hating them rule over them,

42And their enemies oppress them, || And they are humbled under their hand.

43He delivers them many times, || And they rebel in their counsel, || And they are brought low in their iniquity.

44And He looks on their distress || When He hears their cry,

45And remembers His covenant for them, || And is comforted, || According to the abundance of His kindness.

46And He appoints them for mercies || Before all their captors.

47Save us, O our God YHWH, and gather us from the nations, || To give thanks to Your Holy Name, || To glory in Your praise.

48Blessed [is] YHWH, God of Israel, || From age until age. And all the people said, “Amen, praise YAH!”
