Israel's Rebelliousness and the LORD'S Deliverances.
1 Praise F1166 the F1167 LORD!
Oh give R3369 thanks to the LORD, for He is R3370 good;
For His R3371 lovingkindness is everlasting.
2 Who can speak of the mighty R3372 deeds of the LORD,
Or can show forth all His praise?
3 How blessed are those who keep justice, F1168
Who F1169 practice R3373 righteousness at all times!
4 Remember me, O LORD, in Your favor R3374 toward F1170 Your people;
Visit me with Your salvation,
5 That I may see the prosperity R3375 of Your chosen ones,
That I may rejoice R3376 in the gladness of Your nation,
That I may glory R3377 with Your inheritance. F1171
6 We R3378 have sinned like R3379 F1172 our fathers,
We have committed iniquity, we have behaved wickedly.
7 Our fathers in Egypt did not understand Your wonders; F1173
They did R3380 not remember Your F1174 abundant kindnesses,
But rebelled R3381 by the sea, at the Red F1175 Sea.
8 Nevertheless He saved them for R3382 the sake of His name,
That He might make R3383 His power known.
9 Thus He rebuked R3384 the Red F1176 Sea and it dried R3385 up,
And He led R3386 them through the deeps, as through the wilderness.
10 So He saved R3387 them from the hand F1177 of the one who hated them,
And redeemed R3388 them from the hand F1177 of the enemy.
11 The R3389 waters covered their adversaries;
Not one of them was left.
12 Then they believed R3390 His words;
They sang R3391 His praise.
13 They quickly forgot R3392 His works;
They did R3393 not wait for His counsel,
14 But craved R3394 intensely in the wilderness,
And tempted R3395 F1178 God in the desert.
15 So He gave R3396 them their request,
But sent R3397 a wasting F1179 disease among them.
16 When they became envious R3398 of Moses in the camp,
And of Aaron, the holy one of the LORD,
17 The earth R3399 opened and swallowed up Dathan,
And engulfed the company F1180 of Abiram.
18 And a fire R3400 blazed up in their company; F1181
The flame consumed the wicked.
19 They made R3401 a calf in Horeb
And worshiped a molten image.
20 Thus they exchanged R3402 their glory
For the image of an ox that eats grass.
21 They forgot R3403 God their Savior,
Who had done great R3404 things in Egypt,
22 Wonders R3405 F1182 in the land of Ham
And awesome things by the Red F1183 Sea.
23 Therefore He R3406 said that He would destroy them,
Had not Moses R3407 His chosen one stood in the breach before Him,
To turn away His wrath from destroying them.
24 Then they despised R3408 the pleasant R3409 land;
They did R3410 not believe in His word,
25 But grumbled R3411 in their tents;
They did not listen to the voice of the LORD.
26 Therefore He swore R3412 F1184 to them
That He would cast them down in the wilderness,
27 And that He would cast R3413 their seed among the nations
And scatter R3414 them in the lands.
28 They joined R3415 themselves also to Baal-peor, F1185
And ate sacrifices R3416 offered to the dead.
29 Thus they provoked R3417 Him to anger with their deeds,
And the plague broke out among them.
30 Then Phinehas stood R3418 up and interposed,
And so the plague R3419 was stayed.
31 And it was reckoned R3420 to him for righteousness,
To all generations forever.
32 They also provoked R3421 Him to wrath at the waters of Meribah, F1186
So that it went R3422 hard with Moses on their account;
33 Because they were R3423 rebellious against His F1187 Spirit,
He spoke rashly with his lips.
34 They did R3424 not destroy the peoples,
As the R3425 LORD commanded them,
35 But they R3426 mingled with the nations
And learned their practices, F1188
36 And served R3427 their idols,
Which R3428 became a snare to them.
37 They even sacrificed R3429 their sons and their daughters to the demons, R3430
38 And shed innocent R3431 blood,
The blood of their sons R3432 and their daughters,
Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;
And the land was polluted R3433 with the blood.
39 Thus they became unclean R3434 in their practices, F1189
And played R3435 the harlot in their deeds.
40 Therefore the anger R3436 of the LORD was kindled against His people
And He abhorred R3437 His inheritance. R3438 F1190
41 Then He R3439 gave them into the hand of the nations, F1191
And those who hated them ruled over them.
42 Their enemies also oppressed R3440 them,
And they were subdued under their power. F1192
43 Many times He would deliver R3441 them;
They, however, were rebellious in their counsel, R3442
And so sank R3443 down in their iniquity.
44 Nevertheless He looked upon their distress
When He heard R3444 their cry;
45 And He remembered R3445 His covenant for their sake,
And relented R3446 F1193 according R3447 to the greatness of His lovingkindness.
46 He also made them objects R3448 of compassion
In the presence of all their captors.
47 Save R3449 us, O LORD our God,
And gather R3450 us from among the nations,
To give thanks to Your holy name
And glory R3451 F1194 in Your praise.
48 Blessed R3452 be the LORD, the God of Israel,
From everlasting even to everlasting.
And let all the people say, "Amen."
Praise F1195 the F1196 LORD!
