PSALM 105

1 Celebrate ye Jehovah; invoke his name: Announce among the peoples his works.

2 Sing ye to him: sing psalms to him: Speak of all his wonders.

3 Rejoice ye in his holy name: Rejoice let the heart of those who seek Jehovah.

4 Seek ye Jehovah, and his strength; Seek his face continually.

5 Remember the marvelous works which he hath done; His wonders, and the judgments of his mouth.

6 Ye seed of Abraham, his servant, The sons of Jacob his chosen one:

7 He is Jehovah our God; Through all the earth are his judgments.

8 He hath remembered for ever his covenant, The word which he commanded to a thousand generations:

9 Which he made with Abraham, And his oath which he swore to Isaac;

10 And established it to Jacob for a law, To Israel for an everlasting covenant:

11 Saying, “To thee will I give the land of Canaan, “The cord of your inheritance.”

12 When they were very few in number; And strangers in it;

13 And walked about from nation to nation, From one kingdom to another people,

14 He did not suffer men to hurt them; And rebuked for their sake kings;

15 Saying, “Touch not my anointed ones, “And to my prophets do no harm.”

16 And he called a famine upon the land; All the stall of bread he broke.

17 He sent before them a man, For a slave sold was Joseph.

18 They afflicted in the fetters his feet: The iron entered into his soul:

19 Until the time that his word came: The word of Jehovah tried him.

20 Send did the king and loosed him; Even the ruler of the peoples, and freed him.

21 He made him lord over his house; And ruler over all his substance:

22 To bind his princes at his pleasure; And to teach his elders wisdom.

23 And come did Israel into Egypt; And Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.

24 And he increased his people exceedingly, He multiplied them above their oppressors.

25 He turned their heart so that they hated his people, And dealt craftily with his servants.

26 He sent Moses, his servant; Aaron, whom he chose.

27 They set among them the words of his signs, And his miracles in the land of Ham.

28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; And they were not rebellious against his words.

29 He turned their waters into blood, And killed their fish.

30 Their land brought forth frogs, Yea even within the chambers of their kings.

31 He spake and there came a swarm of flies, Lice in all their borders.

32 He gave them for rain, hail, Flaming fire upon their land.

33 And he smote their vines and their fig-trees; And destroyed every tree of their border.

34 He spake, and there came the locust, And the caterpillar without number;

35 And they devoured all the herbage in their land, And consumed the fruit of their ground.

36 And he smote all the firstborn in their land, The beginning of all their strength.

37 And he brought them forth with silver and gold: And not one among their tribes was a feeble person.

38 Glad was Egypt at their departure; For fallen upon them had their terror.

39 He spread out a cloud for a covering; And fire to give light by the night.

40 He 369369     In the Commentary, (vol 4, p. 202) we have translated “they asked,” by mistake. Calvin seems to understand this as spoken of God. asked, and brought quails, And with the bread of heaven he filled them.

41 He opened the rock, and there gushed out waters; They ran in the dry places like a river.

42 For he remembered the word of his holiness, Which he had spoken to Abraham his servant.

43 And he brought forth his people with joy, With exultation his chosen ones.

44 And he gave them the lands of the nations: And the labor of the peoples they inherited.

45 That they might keep his ordinances, And that his law they might observe. Hallelujah.
