1 Praise Jehovah. Oh give thanks to Jehovah; for He is good: for His mercy endures through the Kingdom Age.
Last updated: Apr, 2013
1 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? [who] can shew forth all his praise?
3 Blessed [are] they that keep judgment, [and] he that doeth righteousness at all times.
4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour [that thou bearest unto] thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;
5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.
7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked [him] at the sea, [even] at the Red sea.
8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.
9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.
10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated [them], and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.
12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.
13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:
14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.
15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.
16 They envied Moses also in the camp, [and] Aaron the saint of the LORD.
17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.
18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.
19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.
20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.
21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;
22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, [and] terrible things by the Red sea.
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].
24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word:
25 But murmured in their tents, [and] hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD.
26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness:
27 To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.
28 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
29 Thus they provoked [him] to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them.
30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and [so] the plague was stayed.
31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.
32 They angered [him] also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:
33 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.
34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them:
35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.
36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.
37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
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.
39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.
40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.
41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.
42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.
43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked [him] with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.
44 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry:
45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.
46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.
47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, [and] to triumph in thy praise.
48 Blessed [be] the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.
King James Version
1 Praise ye Jah, give thanks to Jehovah, For good, for to the age, [is] His kindness.
2 Who doth utter the mighty acts of Jehovah? Soundeth all His praise?
3 O the happiness of those keeping judgment, Doing righteousness at all times.
4 Remember me, O Jehovah, With the favour of Thy people, Look after me in Thy salvation.
5 To look on the good of Thy chosen ones, To rejoice in the joy of Thy nation, To boast myself with Thine inheritance.
6 We have sinned with our fathers, We have done perversely, we have done wickedly.
7 Our fathers in Egypt, Have not considered wisely Thy wonders, They have not remembered The abundance of Thy kind acts, And provoke by the sea, at the sea of Suph.
8 And He saveth them for His name's sake, To make known His might,
9 And rebuketh the sea of Suph, and it is dried up, And causeth them to go Through depths as a wilderness.
10 And He saveth them from the hand Of him who is hating, And redeemeth them from the hand of the enemy.
11 And waters cover their adversaries, One of them hath not been left.
12 And they believe in His words, they sing His praise,
13 They have hasted -- forgotten His works, They have not waited for His counsel.
14 And they lust greatly in a wilderness, And try God in a desert.
15 And He giveth to them their request, And sendeth leanness into their soul.
16 And they are envious of Moses in the camp, Of Aaron, Jehovah's holy one.
17 Earth openeth, and swalloweth up Dathan, And covereth over the company of Abiram.
18 And fire burneth among their company, A flame setteth on fire the wicked.
19 They make a calf in Horeb, And bow themselves to a molten image,
20 And change their Honour Into the form of an ox eating herbs.
21 They have forgotten God their saviour, The doer of great things in Egypt,
22 Of wonderful things in the land of Ham, Of fearful things by the sea of Suph.
23 And He saith to destroy them, Unless Moses, His chosen one, Had stood in the breach before Him, To turn back His wrath from destroying.
24 And they kick against the desirable land, They have not given credence to His word.
25 And they murmur in their tents, They have not hearkened to the voice of Jehovah.
26 And He lifteth up His hand to them, To cause them to fall in a wilderness,
27 And to cause their seed to fall among nations, And to scatter them through lands.
28 And they are coupled to Baal-Peor, And eat the sacrifices of the dead,
29 And they provoke to anger by their actions, And a plague breaketh forth upon them,
30 And Phinehas standeth, and executeth judgment, And the plague is restrained,
31 And it is reckoned to him to righteousness, To all generations -- unto the age.
32 And they cause wrath by the waters of Meribah, And it is evil to Moses for their sakes,
33 For they have provoked his spirit, And he speaketh wrongfully with his lips.
34 They have not destroyed the peoples, As Jehovah had said to them,
35 And mix themselves among nations, and learn their works,
36 And serve their idols, And they are to them for a snare.
37 And they sacrifice their sons And their daughters to destroyers,
38 And they shed innocent blood -- Blood of their sons and of their daughters, Whom they have sacrificed to idols of Canaan, And the land is profaned with blood.
39 And they are defiled with their works, And commit whoredom in their habitual doings.
40 And the anger of Jehovah Is kindled against His people, And He doth abominate His inheritance.
41 And giveth them into the hand of nations, And those hating them rule over them,
42 And their enemies oppress them, And they are humbled under their hand.
43 Many times He doth deliver them, And they rebel in their counsel, And they are brought low in their iniquity.
44 And He looketh on their distress When He heareth their cry,
45 And remembereth for them His covenant, And is comforted, According to the abundance of His kindness.
46 And He appointeth them for mercies Before all their captors.
47 Save us, O Jehovah our God, and gather us from the nations, To give thanks to Thy holy name, To glory in Thy praise.
48 Blessed [is] Jehovah, God of Israel, From the age even unto the age. And all the people said, 'Amen, praise Jah!'
