1 Give thanks unto the Lord and call upon his Name;*
tell the peoples what things he has done.
2 O let your songs be of him, and praise him,*
and let your speech be of all his wondrous works.
3 Rejoice in his holy Name;*
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
4 Seek the Lord and his strength;*
seek his face evermore.
5 Remember the marvelous works that he has done,*
his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth,
6 O seed of Abraham his servant,*
O children of Jacob his chosen.
7 He is the Lord our God;*
his judgments are in all the world.
8 He has always been mindful of his covenant,*
and the promise that he made to a thousand generations,
9 Even the covenant that he made with Abraham,*
and the oath that he swore to Isaac,
10 Which he appointed to Jacob for a law,*
and to Israel for an everlasting testament,
11 Saying, "To you will I give the land of Canaan*
to be the portion of your inheritance."
12 When there were yet but a few of them,*
and they were strangers in the land,
13 And they wandered from nation to nation,*
and from one kingdom to another,
14 He allowed no one to do them wrong,*
but reproved even kings for their sakes:
15 "Do not touch my Anointed,*
and do my prophets no harm."
16 Moreover, he called for a famine in the land*
and destroyed all the provision of bread.
17 But he had sent a man before them:*
Joseph, who was sold to be a bondservant,
18 Whose feet they hurt in the stocks;*
they put an iron collar around his neck.
19 Until the time came that his sayings were fulfilled,*
the word of the Lord tried him.
20 The king sent and delivered him;*
the ruler of the people let him go free.
21 He made him lord over his house,*
and ruler of all his possessions,
22 That he might instruct his princes according to his will*
and teach his elders wisdom.
23 Israel also came into Egypt,*
and Jacob was a stranger in the land of Ham.
24 And he increased his people exceedingly,*
and made them stronger than their enemies,
25 Whose heart he turned, so that they hated his people,*
and dealt deceitfully with his servants.
26 Then he sent Moses his servant,*
and Aaron whom he had chosen,
27 And they worked his signs among them,*
and wonders in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness, and it was dark;*
but they were not obedient to his word.
29 He turned their waters into blood*
and caused their fish to die.
30 Their land brought forth frogs,*
even in their kings' chambers.
31 He spoke the word, and there came all manner of flies,*
and gnats in all their borders.
32 He gave them hailstones for rain,*
and flames of fire in their land.
33 He smote their vines also, and their fig trees,*
and destroyed the trees that were in their borders.
34 He spoke the word, and the grasshoppers came, and locusts innumerable,*
which ate up all the grass in their land and devoured the fruit of their ground.
35 He smote all the firstborn in their land,*
even the firstfruits of all their strength.
36 He brought forth Israel with silver and gold;*
in all their tribes there was not one who stumbled.
37 Egypt was glad at their departing,*
for they were afraid of them.
38 He spread out a cloud to be a covering,*
and fire to give light in the night season.
39 At their desire he brought quail,*
and he filled them with the bread of heaven.
40 He opened the rock, and the waters flowed out,*
so that rivers ran in the dry places.
41 For he remembered his holy promise*
and Abraham his servant.
42 And he brought forth his people with joy,*
and his chosen ones with gladness,
43 And gave them the lands of the nations,*
and they took the labors of the peoples in possession,
44 That they might keep his statutes*
and observe his laws. Praise the Lord.
