Psalms 106

The psalmist exhorteth to praise God.

Psalms 106:1 Prayse ye the Lord. Prayse ye the Lord because he is good, for his mercie endureth for euer. Psalms 106:2 Who can expresse the noble actes of the Lord, or shewe forth all his prayse? Psalms 106:3 Blessed are they that keepe iudgement, and doe righteousnesse at all times.

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

Psalms 106:4 Remember me, O Lorde, with the fauour of thy people: visite me with thy saluation, Psalms 106:5 That I may see the felicitie of thy chosen, and reioyce in the ioy of thy people, and glorie with thine inheritance. Psalms 106:6 We haue sinned with our fathers: we haue committed iniquitie, and done wickedly.

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

Psalms 106:7 Our fathers vnderstoode not thy wonders in Egypt, neither remembred they the multitude of thy mercies, but rebelled at the Sea, euen at the red sea. Psalms 106:8 Neuerthelesse he saued them for his Names sake, that he might make his power to be knowen. Psalms 106:9 And he rebuked the red Sea, and it was dryed vp, and he led them in the deepe, as in the wildernesse. Psalms 106:10 And he saued them from ye aduersaries hand, and deliuered them from ye hand of the enemie. Psalms 106:11 And the waters couered their oppressours: not one of them was left. Psalms 106:12 Then beleeued they his wordes, and sang prayse vnto him. Psalms 106:13 But incontinently they forgate his workes: they wayted not for his counsell, Psalms 106:14 But lusted with concupiscence in the wildernes, and tempted God in the desert. Psalms 106:15 Then he gaue them their desire: but he sent leannesse into their soule. Psalms 106:16 They enuied Moses also in the tentes, and Aaron the holy one of the Lord. Psalms 106:17 Therefore the earth opened & swallowed vp Dathan, & couered the companie of Abiram. Psalms 106:18 And the fire was kindled in their assembly: the flame burnt vp the wicked. Psalms 106:19 They made a calfe in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image. Psalms 106:20 Thus they turned their glory into the similitude of a bullocke, that eateth grasse. Psalms 106:21 They forgate God their Sauiour, which had done great things in Egypt, Psalms 106:22 Wonderous woorkes in the lande of Ham, and fearefull things by the red Sea. Psalms 106:23 Therefore he minded to destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stand in the breach before him to turne away his wrath, least he shoulde destroy them. Psalms 106:24 Also they contemned that pleasant land, and beleeued not his worde, Psalms 106:25 But murmured in their tentes, and hearkened not vnto the voice of the Lorde. Psalms 106:26 Therefore hee lifted vp his hande against them, to destroy them in the wildernesse, Psalms 106:27 And to destroy their seede among the nations, & to scatter them throughout the countries. Psalms 106:28 They ioyned themselues also vnto Baalpeor, and did eate the offrings of the dead. Psalms 106:29 Thus they prouoked him vnto anger with their owne inuentions, and the plague brake in vpon them. Psalms 106:30 But Phinehas stoode vp, and executed iudgement, and the plague was staied. Psalms 106:31 And it was imputed vnto him for righteousnes from generation to generation for euer. Psalms 106:32 They angred him also at the waters of Meribah, so that Moses was punished for their sakes, Psalms 106:33 Because they vexed his spirite, so that hee spake vnaduisedly with his lippes. Psalms 106:34 Neither destroied they the people, as the Lord had commaunded them, Psalms 106:35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their workes, Psalms 106:36 And serued their idoles, which were their ruine. Psalms 106:37 Yea, they offered their sonnes, and their daughters vnto deuils, Psalms 106:38 And shed innocent blood, euen the blood of their sonnes, & of their daughters, whome they offred vnto the idoles of Canaan, and the lande was defiled with blood. Psalms 106:39 Thus were they steined with their owne woorkes, and went a whoring with their owne inuentions. Psalms 106:40 Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, and he abhorred his owne inheritance. Psalms 106:41 And hee gaue them into the hande of the heathen: and they that hated them, were lordes ouer them. Psalms 106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them, & they were humbled vnder their hand. Psalms 106:43 Many a time did hee deliuer them, but they prouoked him by their counsels: therefore they were brought downe by their iniquitie. Psalms 106:44 Yet hee sawe when they were in affliction, and he heard their crie. Psalms 106:45 And he remembred his couenant towarde them and repented acoording to the multitude of his mercies, Psalms 106:46 And gaue them fauour in the sight of all them that lead them captiues.

He concludeth with prayer and praise.

Psalms 106:47 Saue vs, O Lorde our God, and gather vs from among the heathen, that we may praise thine holy Name, and glorie in thy praise. Psalms 106:48 Blessed be the Lorde God of Israel for euer and euer, and let all the people say, So be it. Praise yee the Lord.
