The Psalter for Day 21, Morning

Psalm 105

The One Hundred Fifth Psalm

Confitemini Domino.

O GIVE thanks unto the LORD, and call upon his Name; * tell the people what things he hath done.
O let your songs be of him, and praise him; * and let your talking be of all his wondrous works.
Rejoice in his holy Name; * let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
Seek the LORD and his strength; * seek his face evermore.
Remember the marvellous works that he hath done; * his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
O ye seed of Abraham his servant, * ye children of Jacob his chosen.
He is the LORD our God; * his judgments are in all the world.
He hath been alway mindful of his covenant and promise, * that he made to a thousand generations;
Even the covenant that he made with Abraham; * and the oath that he sware unto Isaac;
And appointed the same unto Jacob for a law, * and to Israel for an everlasting testament;
Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, * the lot of your inheritance:
When there were yet but a few of them, * and they strangers in the land;
What time as they went from one nation to another, * from one kingdom to another people;
He suffered no man to do them wrong, * but reproved even kings for their sakes;
Touch not mine anointed, * and do my prophets no harm.
Moreover, he called for a dearth upon the land, * and destroyed all the provision of bread.
But he had sent a man before them, * even Joseph, who was sold to be a bond-servant;
Whose feet they hurt in the stocks; * the iron entered into his soul;
Until the time came that his cause was known: * the word of the LORD tried him.
The king sent, and delivered him; * the prince of the people let him go free.
He made him lord also of his house, * and ruler of all his substance;
That he might inform his princes after his will, * and teach his senators wisdom.
Israel also came into Egypt, * and Jacob was a stranger in the land of Ham.
And he increased his people exceedingly, * and made them stronger than their enemies;
Whose heart turned so, that they hated his people, * and dealt untruly with his servants.
Then sent he Moses his servant, * and Aaron whom he had chosen.
And these showed his tokens among them, * and wonders in the land of Ham.
He sent darkness, and it was dark; * and they were not obedient unto his word.
He turned their waters into blood, * and slew their fish.
Their land brought forth frogs; * yea, even in their kings' chambers.
He spake the word, and there came all manner of flies, * and lice in all their quarters.
He gave them hailstones for rain; * and flames of fire in their land.
He smote their vines also and fig-trees; * and destroyed the trees that were in their coasts.
He spake the word, and the grasshoppers came, and caterpillars innumerable, * and did eat up all the grass in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.
He smote all the firstborn in their land; * even the chief of all their strength.
He brought them forth also with silver and gold; * there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
Egypt was glad at their departing; * for they were afraid of them.
He spread out a cloud to be a covering, * and fire to give light in the night season.
At their desire he brought quails; * and he filled them with the bread of heaven.
He opened the rock of stone, and the waters flowed out, * so that rivers ran in the dry places.
For why? he remembered his holy promise; * and Abraham his servant.
And he brought forth his people with joy, * and his chosen with gladness;
And gave them the lands of the heathen; * and they took the labours of the people in possession;
That they might keep his statutes, * and observe his laws.
