An exhortation to praise God, and to seek out his works.
Psalms 105:1 O give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people. Psalms 105:2 Sing to him, sing psalms to him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. Psalms 105:3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. Psalms 105:4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore. Psalms 105:5 Remember his wonderful 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.
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 Which [covenant] he made with Abraham, and his oath to Isaac; Psalms 105:10 And confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, [and] to Israel [for] an everlasting covenant: Psalms 105:11 Saying, To thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance: Psalms 105:12 When they were a few men in number; yes, very few, and strangers in it. Psalms 105:13 When they went from one nation to another, from [one] kingdom to another people; Psalms 105:14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yes, he reproved kings for their sakes; Psalms 105:15 [Saying], Touch not my anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
Psalms 105:16 Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he broke the whole staff of bread. Psalms 105:17 He sent a man before them, [even] Joseph, [who] was sold for a servant: Psalms 105:18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron: Psalms 105:19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him. Psalms 105:20 The king sent and loosed him; [even] the ruler of the people, 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 enemies. 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 showed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham. Psalms 105:28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word. Psalms 105:29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish. Psalms 105:30 Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings. Psalms 105:31 He spoke, and there came divers sorts 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 broke the trees of their borders. Psalms 105:34 He spoke, and the locusts came, and caterpillars, and that without number, Psalms 105:35 And ate up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground. Psalms 105:36 He smote also all the first-born 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 He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and [there was] not one feeble [person] among their tribes. Psalms 105:38 Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them. Psalms 105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night. Psalms 105:40 [The people] asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven. Psalms 105:41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places [like] a river. Psalms 105:42 For he remembered his holy promise, [and] Abraham his servant. Psalms 105:43 And he brought forth his people with joy, [and] his chosen with gladness: Psalms 105:44 And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labor of the people; Psalms 105:45 That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the LORD.
