1: O give praise to the Lord; give honour to his name, talking of his doings among the peoples. 2: Let your voice be sounding in songs and melody; let all your thoughts be of the wonder of his works. 3: Have glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who are searching after the Lord be glad. 4: Let your search be for the Lord and for his strength; let your hearts ever be turned to him. 5: Keep in mind the great works which he has done; his wonders, and the decisions of his mouth; 6: O you seed of Abraham, his servant, you children of Jacob, his loved ones. 7: He is the Lord our God: he is judge of all the earth. 8: He has kept his agreement in mind for ever, the word which he gave for a thousand generations; 9: The agreement which he made with Abraham, and his oath to Isaac; 10: And he gave it to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an eternal agreement; 11: Saying, To you will I give the land of Canaan, the measured line of your heritage: 12: When they were still small in number, and strange in the land; 13: When they went about from one nation to another, and from one kingdom to another people. 14: He would not let anyone do them wrong; he even kept back kings because of them, 15: Saying, Put not your hand on those who have been marked with my holy oil, and do my prophets no wrong. 16: And he took away all food from the land, so that the people were without bread. 17: He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was given as a servant for a price: 18: His feet were fixed in chains; his neck was put in iron bands; 19: Till the time when his word came true; he was tested by the word of the Lord. 20: The king sent men to take off his chains; even the ruler of the people, who let him go free. 21: He made him lord of his house, and ruler over everything he had; 22: To give his chiefs teaching at his pleasure, and so that his law-givers might get wisdom from him. 23: Then Israel came into Egypt, and Jacob was living in the land of Ham. 24: And his people were greatly increased, and became stronger than those who were against them. 25: Their hearts were turned to hate against his people, so that they made secret designs against them. 26: He sent Moses, his servant, and Aaron, the man of his selection. 27: He let his signs be seen among the people, and his wonders in the land of Ham. 28: He sent black night and made it dark; and they did not go against his word. 29: At his word their waters were turned to blood, and he sent death on all their fish. 30: Their land was full of frogs, even in the rooms of the king. 31: He gave the word, and there came the dog-fly, and insects over all the land. 32: He gave them ice for rain, and flaming fire in their land. 33: He gave their vines and their fig-trees to destruction, and the trees of their land were broken down. 34: At his word the locusts came, and young locusts more than might be numbered, 35: And put an end to all the plants of their land, taking all the fruit of the earth for food. 36: He put to death the first child of every family in the land, the first-fruits of their strength. 37: He took his people out with silver and gold: there was not one feeble person among them. 38: Egypt was glad when they went; for the fear of them had come down on them. 39: A cloud was stretched over them for a cover; and he sent fire to give light in the night. 40: At the people's request he sent birds, and gave them the bread of heaven for food. 41: His hand made the rock open, and the waters came streaming out; they went down through the dry places like a river. 42: For he kept in mind his holy word, and Abraham, his servant. 43: And he took his people out with joy, the men of his selection with glad cries: 44: And gave them the lands of the nations; and they took the work of the peoples for a heritage; 45: So that they might keep his orders, and be true to his laws. Give praise to the Lord.
