Psalms 106

The psalmist exhorteth to praise God.

Psalms 106:1 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy [endureth] for ever. Psalms 106:2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD, or shew forth all his praise? Psalms 106:3 Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.

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

Psalms 106:4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people; O visit me with thy salvation: Psalms 106:5 That I may see the prosperity of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance. Psalms 106:6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.

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

Psalms 106:7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but were rebellious at the sea, even at the Red Sea. Psalms 106:8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known. Psalms 106:9 He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through a wilderness. Psalms 106:10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. Psalms 106:11 And the waters covered their adversaries: there was not one of them left. Psalms 106:12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise. Psalms 106:13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel: Psalms 106:14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. Psalms 106:15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul. Psalms 106:16 They envied Moses also in the camp, [and] Aaron the saint of the LORD. Psalms 106:17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram. Psalms 106:18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked. Psalms 106:19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped a molten image. Psalms 106:20 Thus they changed their glory for the likeness of an ox that eateth grass. Psalms 106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt; Psalms 106:22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, [and] terrible things by the Red Sea. Psalms 106:23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy [them]. Psalms 106:24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word; Psalms 106:25 But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD. Psalms 106:26 Therefore he lifted up his hand unto them, that he would overthrow them in the wilderness: Psalms 106:27 And that he would overthrow their seed among the nations, and scatter them in the lands. Psalms 106:28 They joined themselves also unto Baal-peor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead. Psalms 106:29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their doings; and the plague brake in upon them. Psalms 106:30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was stayed. Psalms 106:31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness, unto all generations for evermore. Psalms 106:32 They angered him also at the waters of Meribah, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes: Psalms 106:33 Because they were rebellious against his spirit, and he spake unadvisedly with his lips. Psalms 106:34 They did not destroy the peoples, as the LORD commanded them; Psalms 106:35 But mingled themselves with the nations, and learned their works: Psalms 106:36 And they served their idols; which became a snare unto them: Psalms 106:37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto demons, Psalms 106:38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood. Psalms 106:39 Thus were they defiled with their works, and went a whoring in their doings. Psalms 106:40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, and he abhorred his inheritance. Psalms 106:41 And he gave them into the hand of the nations; and they that hated them ruled over them. Psalms 106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand. Psalms 106:43 Many times did he deliver them; but they were rebellious in their counsel, and were brought low in their iniquity. Psalms 106:44 Nevertheless he regarded their distress, when he heard their cry: Psalms 106:45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies. Psalms 106:46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.

He concludeth with prayer and praise.

Psalms 106:47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the nations, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise. Psalms 106:48 Blessed be the LORD, the God or Israel, from everlasting even to everlasting. And let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.
