Psalm 105 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

105 Give ye thanks to Jehovah -- call ye in His name, Make known among the peoples His acts.

Sing ye to Him -- sing praise to Him, Meditate ye on all His wonders.

Boast yourselves in His Holy Name, The heart of those seeking Jehovah rejoiceth.

Seek ye Jehovah and His strength, Seek ye His face continually.

Remember His wonders that He did, His signs and the judgments of His mouth.

O seed of Abraham, His servant, O sons of Jacob, His chosen ones.

He [is] Jehovah our God, In all the earth [are] His judgments.

He hath remembered to the age His covenant, The word He commanded to a thousand generations,

That He hath made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac,

10 And doth establish it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel -- a covenant age-during,

11 Saying, `To thee I give the land of Canaan, The portion of your inheritance,'

12 In their being few in number, But a few, and sojourners in it.

13 And they go up and down, from nation unto nation, From a kingdom unto another people.

14 He hath not suffered any to oppress them And He reproveth for their sakes kings.

15 `Strike not against Mine anointed, And to My prophets do not evil.'

16 And He calleth a famine on the land, The whole staff of bread He hath broken.

17 He hath sent before them a man, For a servant hath Joseph been sold.

18 They have afflicted with fetters his feet, Iron hath entered his soul,

19 Till the time of the coming of His word The saying of Jehovah hath tried him.

20 The king hath sent, and looseth him, The ruler of the peoples, and draweth him out.

21 He hath made him lord of his house, And ruler over all his possessions.

22 To bind his chiefs at his pleasure, And his elders he maketh wise.

23 And Israel cometh in to Egypt, And Jacob hath sojourned in the land of Ham.

24 And He maketh His people very fruitful, And maketh it mightier than its adversaries.

25 He turned their heart to hate His people, To conspire against His servants.

26 He hath sent Moses His servant, Aaron whom He had fixed on.

27 They have set among them the matters of His signs, And wonders in the land of Ham.

28 He hath sent darkness, and it is dark, And they have not provoked His word.

29 He hath turned their waters to blood, And putteth to death their fish.

30 Teemed hath their land [with] frogs, In the inner chambers of their kings.

31 He hath said, and the beetle cometh, Lice into all their border.

32 He hath made their showers hail, A flaming fire [is] in their land.

33 And He smiteth their vine and their fig, And shivereth the trees of their border.

34 He hath said, and the locust cometh, And the cankerworm -- innumerable,

35 And it consumeth every herb in their land, And it consumeth the fruit of their ground.

36 And He smiteth every first-born in their land, The first-fruit of all their strength,

37 And bringeth them out with silver and gold, And there is not in its tribes a feeble one.

38 Rejoiced hath Egypt in their going forth, For their fear had fallen upon them.

39 He hath spread a cloud for a covering, And fire to enlighten the night.

40 They have asked, and He bringeth quails, And [with] bread of heaven satisfieth them.

41 He hath opened a rock, and waters issue, They have gone on in dry places -- a river.

42 For He hath remembered His holy word, With Abraham His servant,

43 And He bringeth forth His people with joy, With singing His chosen ones.

44 And He giveth to them the lands of nations, And the labour of peoples they possess,

45 That they may observe His statutes, And His laws may keep. Praise ye Jehovah!

Psalm 105 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 105

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
    make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
    tell of all his wonderful acts.
Glory in his holy name;
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Look to the Lord and his strength;
    seek his face always.

Remember the wonders he has done,
    his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,
you his servants, the descendants of Abraham,
    his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.
He is the Lord our God;
    his judgments are in all the earth.

He remembers his covenant forever,
    the promise he made, for a thousand generations,
the covenant he made with Abraham,
    the oath he swore to Isaac.
10 He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree,
    to Israel as an everlasting covenant:
11 “To you I will give the land of Canaan
    as the portion you will inherit.”

12 When they were but few in number,
    few indeed, and strangers in it,
13 they wandered from nation to nation,
    from one kingdom to another.
14 He allowed no one to oppress them;
    for their sake he rebuked kings:
15 “Do not touch my anointed ones;
    do my prophets no harm.”

16 He called down famine on the land
    and destroyed all their supplies of food;
17 and he sent a man before them—
    Joseph, sold as a slave.
18 They bruised his feet with shackles,
    his neck was put in irons,
19 till what he foretold came to pass,
    till the word of the Lord proved him true.
20 The king sent and released him,
    the ruler of peoples set him free.
21 He made him master of his household,
    ruler over all he possessed,
22 to instruct his princes as he pleased
    and teach his elders wisdom.

23 Then Israel entered Egypt;
    Jacob resided as a foreigner in the land of Ham.
24 The Lord made his people very fruitful;
    he made them too numerous for their foes,
25 whose hearts he turned to hate his people,
    to conspire against his servants.
26 He sent Moses his servant,
    and Aaron, whom he had chosen.
27 They performed his signs among them,
    his wonders in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness and made the land dark—
    for had they not rebelled against his words?
29 He turned their waters into blood,
    causing their fish to die.
30 Their land teemed with frogs,
    which went up into the bedrooms of their rulers.
31 He spoke, and there came swarms of flies,
    and gnats throughout their country.
32 He turned their rain into hail,
    with lightning throughout their land;
33 he struck down their vines and fig trees
    and shattered the trees of their country.
34 He spoke, and the locusts came,
    grasshoppers without number;
35 they ate up every green thing in their land,
    ate up the produce of their soil.
36 Then he struck down all the firstborn in their land,
    the firstfruits of all their manhood.
37 He brought out Israel, laden with silver and gold,
    and from among their tribes no one faltered.
38 Egypt was glad when they left,
    because dread of Israel had fallen on them.

39 He spread out a cloud as a covering,
    and a fire to give light at night.
40 They asked, and he brought them quail;
    he fed them well with the bread of heaven.
41 He opened the rock, and water gushed out;
    it flowed like a river in the desert.

42 For he remembered his holy promise
    given to his servant Abraham.
43 He brought out his people with rejoicing,
    his chosen ones with shouts of joy;
44 he gave them the lands of the nations,
    and they fell heir to what others had toiled for—
45 that they might keep his precepts
    and observe his laws.

Praise the Lord.[a]
