Psalms 106

The psalmist exhorteth to praise God.

Psalms 106:1 {Prayse ye the Lorde.} Confesse you [it] vnto god, for he is gratious: and his mercy endureth for euer. Psalms 106:2 Who can expresse the valiaunt actes of God: who can publishe abrode all his prayse? Psalms 106:3 Blessed are they that kepe iudgement: and do iustice at all times.

He prayeth for pardon of sin, as God did with the fathers.

Psalms 106:4 Remember me O God according to the fauour that thou bearest vnto thy people: O visite me with thy saluation. Psalms 106:5 That I may see the felicitie of thy chosen, that I may reioyce at the gladnes of thy people: [and] that I may glorie with thyne inheritaunce. Psalms 106:6 We haue sinned with our fathers: we haue done amisse and dealt wickedly.

The story of the people's rebellion, and God's mercy.

Psalms 106:7 Our fathers did not well consider thy wonders in Egypt, neither did they remember thy manifolde great goodnes: but they rebelled at the sea, euen at the red sea. Psalms 106:8 Neuerthelesse, he saued them for his names sake: that he myght make his power to be knowen. Psalms 106:9 And he rebuked the red sea, and it was dryed vp: so he led them through the deepe, as through a wyldernesse. Psalms 106:10 And he saued them from the hande of suche as hated them: & redeemed them from the hande of the enemie. Psalms 106:11 As for their aduersaries the waters ouerwhelmed them: there was not one of them left remayning. Psalms 106:12 Then beleued they his wordes: and song prayse vnto him. Psalms 106:13 But within a very short whyle they forgat his workes: they woulde not wayte for his counsell. Psalms 106:14 And they were taken with a great lust in the wyldernesse: and they tempted God in the desert. Psalms 106:15 And he gaue them their desire: and sent leannes withal into their soule. Psalms 106:16 They enuied also at Moyses in the tentes: [and] at Aaron the saint of God. Psalms 106:17 So the earth opened and swalowed vp Dathan: and couered the company of Abiram. Psalms 106:18 And the fire was kindled in their company: the flambe brent vp the vngodly. Psalms 106:19 They made a calfe in Horeb: and worshipped the moulten image. Psalms 106:20 Thus they turned their glory: into the similitude of a calfe that eateth hay. Psalms 106:21 They forgat God their sauiour, who had done so great thynges in Egypt: Psalms 106:22 wonderous workes in ye land of Cham, [and] terrible thinges at the red sea. Psalms 106:23 Wherfore he appointed to destroy them, had not Moyses his chosen stand in the breache before hym: to turne away his wrathful indignation, lest he should destroy them. Psalms 106:24 Yea they thought scorne of the lande most to be desired: they gaue no credite vnto his worde. Psalms 106:25 But they murmured in their tentes: they would not hearken vnto the voyce of God. Psalms 106:26 Then lift he vp his hand against them, to geue them an ouerthrowe in the wildernesse: Psalms 106:27 to geue their seede an ouerthrowe amongst the nations, and to scatter them in sundry landes. Psalms 106:28 They ioyned them selues vnto Baal Peor: they also did eate of the sacrifices of the dead. Psalms 106:29 And they prouoked the [Lorde] vnto anger with their owne inuentions: and a plague fell mightily amongst them. Psalms 106:30 Then stoode vp Phinehes, he executed iustice: and so the plague ceassed. Psalms 106:31 And that was imputed vnto hym for righteousnesse: in generation and generation for euermore. Psalms 106:32 They also prouoked [God] at the waters of strife: and all was not well with Moyses for their sakes. Psalms 106:33 For they had caused an alteration to be of his spirite: so that he spake vnaduisedly with his lippes. Psalms 106:34 Moreouer, they destroyed not the Heathen: as God commaunded them. Psalms 106:35 But they were mingled amongst the Heathen: and learned their workes. Psalms 106:36 Insomuch that they dyd seruice vnto their idols: whiche were to the a snare. Psalms 106:37 Yea they sacrifised their sonnes: and their daughters vnto deuils. Psalms 106:38 And they shed innocent blood, euen the blood of their sonnes and of their daughters: whom they sacrifised vnto the idols of Chanaan, and the lande was defiled with blood. Psalms 106:39 Thus were they stayned with their owne workes: and went a whoryng with their owne inuentions. Psalms 106:40 Therfore was the wrath of God kindeled against his people: insomuch that he abhorred his owne inheritaunce. Psalms 106:41 And he gaue them ouer into the hand of the Heathen: and they that dyd hate them, were lordes ouer them. Psalms 106:42 Their enemies oppressed them: and brought them into subiection vnder their hande. Psalms 106:43 Many a time dyd [God] deliuer them, but they rebelled [against hym] with their owne inuentions: and were brought downe for their wickednes. Psalms 106:44 Neuerthelesse, he did beholde them in their aduersitie: in geuing eare to their complaint. Psalms 106:45 And he remembred his couenaunt: and repented, according to the multitude of his mercies. Psalms 106:46 Yea he made all those that led them away captiue: to pitie them.

He concludeth with prayer and praise.

Psalms 106:47 Saue vs O God our Lorde, and gather vs from among the Heathen: that we may geue thankes to thy holy name, and glory of thy prayse. Psalms 106:48 Blessed be God the Lord of Israel from world to world without end: and let all people say, so be it. Prayse ye the Lord.
