Psalm 105. Confitemini Domino.
From the Book of Divine Worship
- The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twenty-first Day - Morning Prayer.
- 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.
