106 iPraise the Lord!
lfor his steadfast love endures forever!
who mdo righteousness at all times!
4 nRemember me, O Lord, when you show favor to your people;
help me when you save them,1
5 that I may look upon the prosperity of your ochosen ones,
they rdid not remember the abundance of your steadfast love,
but srebelled by the sea, at the Red Sea.
8 Yet he saved them tfor his name's sake,
uthat he might make known his mighty power.
and he xled them through the deep as through a desert.
10 So he ysaved them from the hand of the foe
and zredeemed them from the power of the enemy.
11 And athe waters covered their adversaries;
12 Then bthey believed his words;
they csang his praise.
13 But they soon dforgot his works;
they did not wait for ehis counsel.
14 But they had fa wanton craving in the wilderness,
and gput God to the test in the desert;
15 he hgave them what they asked,
but sent ia wasting disease among them.
16 When men in the camp jwere jealous of Moses
and Aaron, kthe holy one of the Lord,
17 lthe earth opened and swallowed up Dathan,
18 mFire also broke out in their company;
19 They nmade a calf in Horeb
21 They pforgot God, their Savior,
22 wondrous works in qthe land of Ham,
23 Therefore rhe said he would destroy them—
had not Moses, his schosen one,
tstood in the breach before him,
having wno faith in his promise.
25 They xmurmured in their tents,
26 Therefore he yraised his hand and swore to them
zscattering them among the lands.
and ate sacrifices offered to bthe dead;
30 Then cPhinehas stood up and intervened,
31 And that was dcounted to him as righteousness
32 They eangered him at the waters of Meribah,
and he gspoke rashly with his lips.
34 They did not hdestroy the peoples,
ias the Lord commanded them,
35 but they jmixed with the nations
which became ka snare to them.
37 They lsacrificed their sons
and their daughters to mthe demons;
and the land was npolluted with blood.
39 Thus they obecame unclean by their acts,
and pplayed the whore in their deeds.
and he abhorred his rheritage;
41 he sgave them into the hand of the nations,
42 Their enemies toppressed them,
43 uMany times he delivered them,
but they were rebellious in their vpurposes
and were wbrought low through their iniquity.
when he xheard their cry.
45 For their sake he yremembered his covenant,
46 He caused them to be bpitied
47 cSave us, O Lord our God,
and dgather us from among the nations,
48 eBlessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
eAnd let all the people say, “Amen!”
fPraise the Lord!
