An exhortation to praise God, and to seek out his works.
Psalms 105:1 Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name; make known his doings among the peoples. Psalms 105:2 Sing unto him, sing praises unto him; talk ye of all his marvelous works. Psalms 105:3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. Psalms 105:4 Seek ye the LORD and his strength; seek his face evermore. Psalms 105:5 Remember his marvelous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth; Psalms 105:6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
The story of God's providence over Abraham,
Psalms 105:7 He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth. Psalms 105:8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations; Psalms 105:9 [The covenant] which he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; Psalms 105:10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant: Psalms 105:11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance: Psalms 105:12 When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and sojourners in it; Psalms 105:13 And they went about from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people. Psalms 105:14 He suffered no man to do them wrong; yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; Psalms 105:15 [Saying], Touch not mine anointed ones, and do my prophets no harm.
Psalms 105:16 And he called for a famine upon the land; he brake the whole staff of bread. Psalms 105:17 He sent a man before them; Joseph was sold for a servant: Psalms 105:18 His feet they hurt with fetters; he was laid in [chains of] iron: Psalms 105:19 Until the time that his word came to pass; the word of the LORD tried him. Psalms 105:20 The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of peoples, and let him go free. Psalms 105:21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance: Psalms 105:22 To bind his princes at his pleasure, and teach his senators wisdom.
over Jacob in Egypt,
Psalms 105:23 Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham. Psalms 105:24 And he increased his people greatly, and made them stronger than their adversaries. Psalms 105:25 He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants.
over Moses delivering the Israelites,
Psalms 105:26 He sent Moses his servant, [and] Aaron whom he had chosen. Psalms 105:27 They set among them his signs, and wonders in the land of Ham. Psalms 105:28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his words. Psalms 105:29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish. Psalms 105:30 Their land swarmed with frogs, in the chambers of their kings. Psalms 105:31 He spake, and there came swarms of flies, and lice in all their borders. Psalms 105:32 He gave them hail for rain, [and] flaming fire in their land. Psalms 105:33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their borders. Psalms 105:34 He spake, and the locust came, and the cankerworm, and that without number, Psalms 105:35 And did eat up every herb in their land, and did eat up the fruit of their ground. Psalms 105:36 He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.
over the Israelites brought out of Egypt, fed in the wilderness, and planted in Canaan.
Psalms 105:37 And he brought them forth with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among his tribes. Psalms 105:38 Egypt was glad when they departed; for the fear of them had fallen upon them. Psalms 105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night. Psalms 105:40 They asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven. Psalms 105:41 He opened the rock, and waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places [like] a river. Psalms 105:42 For he remembered his holy word, [and] Abraham his servant. Psalms 105:43 And he brought forth his people with joy, [and] his chosen with singing. Psalms 105:44 And he gave them the lands of the nations; and they took the labour of the peoples in possession: Psalms 105:45 That they might keep his statutes, and observe his laws. Praise ye the LORD.
