106:1Praise ye Jah, give thanks to Jehovah, For good, for to the age, is His kindness.
106:2Who doth utter the mighty acts of Jehovah? Soundeth all His praise?
106:3O the happiness of those keeping judgment, Doing righteousness at all times.
106:4Remember me, O Jehovah, With the favour of Thy people, Look after me in Thy salvation.
106:5To look on the good of Thy chosen ones, To rejoice in the joy of Thy nation, To boast myself with Thine inheritance.
106:6We have sinned with our fathers, We have done perversely, we have done wickedly.
106:7Our 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.
106:8And He saveth them for His name's sake, To make known His might,
106:9And rebuketh the sea of Suph, and it is dried up, And causeth them to go Through depths as a wilderness.
106:10And He saveth them from the hand Of him who is hating, And redeemeth them from the hand of the enemy.
106:11And waters cover their adversaries, One of them hath not been left.
106:12And they believe in His words, they sing His praise,
106:13They have hasted -- forgotten His works, They have not waited for His counsel.
106:14And they lust greatly in a wilderness, And try God in a desert.
106:15And He giveth to them their request, And sendeth leanness into their soul.
106:16And they are envious of Moses in the camp, Of Aaron, Jehovah's holy one.
106:17Earth openeth, and swalloweth up Dathan, And covereth over the company of Abiram.
106:18And fire burneth among their company, A flame setteth on fire the wicked.
106:19They make a calf in Horeb, And bow themselves to a molten image,
106:20And change their Honour Into the form of an ox eating herbs.
106:21They have forgotten God their saviour, The doer of great things in Egypt,
106:22Of wonderful things in the land of Ham, Of fearful things by the sea of Suph.
106:23And He saith to destroy them, Unless Moses, His chosen one, Had stood in the breach before Him, To turn back His wrath from destroying.
106:24And they kick against the desirable land, They have not given credence to His word.
106:25And they murmur in their tents, They have not hearkened to the voice of Jehovah.
106:26And He lifteth up His hand to them, To cause them to fall in a wilderness,
106:27And to cause their seed to fall among nations, And to scatter them through lands.
106:28And they are coupled to Baal-Peor, And eat the sacrifices of the dead,
106:29And they provoke to anger by their actions, And a plague breaketh forth upon them,
106:30And Phinehas standeth, and executeth judgment, And the plague is restrained,
106:31And it is reckoned to him to righteousness, To all generations -- unto the age.
106:32And they cause wrath by the waters of Meribah, And it is evil to Moses for their sakes,
106:33For they have provoked his spirit, And he speaketh wrongfully with his lips.
106:34They have not destroyed the peoples, As Jehovah had said to them,
106:35And mix themselves among nations, and learn their works,
106:36And serve their idols, And they are to them for a snare.
106:37And they sacrifice their sons And their daughters to destroyers,
106:38And 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.
106:39And they are defiled with their works, And commit whoredom in their habitual doings.
106:40And the anger of Jehovah Is kindled against His people, And He doth abominate His inheritance.
106:41And giveth them into the hand of nations, And those hating them rule over them,
106:42And their enemies oppress them, And they are humbled under their hand.
106:43Many times He doth deliver them, And they rebel in their counsel, And they are brought low in their iniquity.
106:44And He looketh on their distress When He heareth their cry,
106:45And remembereth for them His covenant, And is comforted, According to the abundance of His kindness.
106:46And He appointeth them for mercies Before all their captors.
106:47Save us, O Jehovah our God, and gather us from the nations, To give thanks to Thy holy name, To glory in Thy praise.
106:48Blessed is Jehovah, God of Israel, From the age even unto the age. And all the people said, `Amen, praise Jah!'
107:1`Give ye thanks to Jehovah, For good, for to the age is His kindness:'
107:2Let the redeemed of Jehovah say, Whom He redeemed from the hand of an adversary.
107:3And from the lands hath gathered them, From east and from west, From north, and from the sea.
107:4They wandered in a wilderness, in a desert by the way, A city of habitation they have not found.
107:5Hungry -- yea -- thirsty, Their soul in them becometh feeble,
107:6And they cry unto Jehovah in their adversity, From their distress He delivereth them,
107:7And causeth them to tread in a right way, To go unto a city of habitation.
107:8They confess to Jehovah His kindness, And His wonders to the sons of men.
107:9For He hath satisfied a longing soul, And a hungry soul hath filled with goodness.
107:10Inhabitants of dark places and death-shade, Prisoners of affliction and of iron,
107:11Because they changed the saying of God, And the counsel of the Most High despised.
107:12And He humbleth with labour their heart, They have been feeble, and there is no helper.
107:13And they cry unto Jehovah in their adversity, From their distresses He saveth them.
107:14He bringeth them out from the dark place, And death-shade, And their bands He draweth away.
107:15They confess to Jehovah His kindness, And His wonders to the sons of men.
107:16For He hath broken doors of brass, And bars of iron He hath cut.
107:17Fools, by means of their transgression, And by their iniquities, afflict themselves.
107:18All food doth their soul abominate, And they come nigh unto the gates of death,
107:19And cry unto Jehovah in their adversity, From their distresses He saveth them,
107:20He sendeth His word and healeth them, And delivereth from their destructions.
107:21They confess to Jehovah His kindness, And His wonders to the sons of men,
107:22And they sacrifice sacrifices of thanksgiving, And recount His works with singing.
107:23Those going down to the sea in ships, Doing business in many waters,
107:24They have seen the works of Jehovah, And His wonders in the deep.
107:25And He saith, and appointeth a tempest, And it lifteth up its billows,
107:26They go up to the heavens, they go down to the depths, Their soul in evil is melted.
107:27They reel to and fro, and move as a drunkard, And all their wisdom is swallowed up.
107:28And they cry to Jehovah in their adversity, And from their distresses He bringeth them out.
107:29He establisheth a whirlwind to a calm, And hushed are their billows.
107:30And they rejoice because they are quiet, And He leadeth them to the haven of their desire.
107:31They confess to Jehovah His kindness, And His wonders to the sons of men,
107:32And they exalt Him in the assembly of the people, And in the seat of the elders praise Him.
107:33He maketh rivers become a wilderness, And fountains of waters become dry land.
107:34A fruitful land becometh a barren place, For the wickedness of its inhabitants.
107:35He maketh a wilderness become a pool of water, And a dry land become fountains of waters.
107:36And He causeth the hungry to dwell there, And they prepare a city of habitation.
107:37And they sow fields, and plant vineyards, And they make fruits of increase.
107:38And He blesseth them, and they multiply exceedingly, And their cattle He doth not diminish.
107:39And they are diminished, and bow down, By restraint, evil, and sorrow.
107:40He is pouring contempt upon nobles, And causeth them to wander in vacancy -- no way.
107:41And setteth on high the needy from affliction, And placeth families as a flock.
107:42The upright do see and rejoice, And all perversity hath shut her mouth.
107:43Who is wise, and observeth these? They understand the kind acts of Jehovah!
108:1Prepared is my heart, O God, I sing, yea, I sing praise, also my honour.
108:2Awake, psaltery and harp, I awake the dawn.
108:3I thank Thee among peoples, O Jehovah, And I praise Thee among the nations.
108:4For great above the heavens is Thy kindness, And unto the clouds Thy truth.
108:5Be Thou exalted above the heavens, O God, And above all the earth Thy honour.
108:6That Thy beloved ones may be delivered, Save with Thy right hand, and answer us.
108:7God hath spoken in His holiness: I exult, I apportion Shechem, And the valley of Succoth I measure,
108:8Mine is Gilead, mine is Manasseh, And Ephraim is the strength of my head, Judah is my lawgiver,
108:9Moab is a pot for my washing, Upon Edom I cast my shoe, Over Philistia I shout habitually.
108:10Who doth bring me in to the fenced city? Who hath led me unto Edom?
108:11Hast not Thou, O God, cast us off? And Thou goest not out, O God, with our hosts!
108:12Give to us help from adversity, And vain is the salvation of man.
108:13In God we do mightily, And He doth tread down our adversaries!
