Psalm 105. Confitemini Domino.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twenty-first Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. O GIVE thanks unto the Lord, and call upon his Name; *
    tell the people what things he hath done.
  2. O let your songs be of him, and praise him; *
    and let your talking be of all his wondrous works.
  3. Rejoice in his holy Name; *
    let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.
  4. Seek the Lord and his strength; *
    seek his face evermore.
  5. Remember the marvellous works that he hath done; *
    his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
  6. O ye seed of Abraham his servant, *
    ye children of Jacob his chosen.
  7. He is the Lord our God; *
    his judgments are in all the world.
  8. He hath been alway mindful of his covenant and promise, *
    that he made to a thousand generations;
  9. Even the covenant that he made with Abraham; *
    and the oath that he sware unto Isaac;
  10. And appointed the same unto Jacob for a law, *
    and to Israel for an everlasting testament;
  11. Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, *
    the lot of your inheritance:
  12. When there were yet but a few of them, *
    and they strangers in the land;
  13. What time as they went from one nation to another, *
    from one kingdom to another people;
  14. He suffered no man to do them wrong, *
    but reproved even kings for their sakes;
  15. Touch not mine anointed, *
    and do my prophets no harm.
  16. Moreover, he called for a dearth upon the land, *
    and destroyed all the provision of bread.
  17. But he had sent a man before them, *
    even Joseph, who was sold to be a bond-servant;
  18. Whose feet they hurt in the stocks; *
    the iron entered into his soul;
  19. Until the time came that his cause was known: *
    the word of the Lord tried him.
  20. The king sent, and delivered him; *
    the prince of the people let him go free.
  21. He made him lord also of his house, *
    and ruler of all his substance;
  22. That he might inform his princes after his will, *
    and teach his senators wisdom.
  23. Israel also came into Egypt, *
    and Jacob was a stranger in the land of Ham.
  24. And he increased his people exceedingly, *
    and made them stronger than their enemies;
  25. Whose heart turned so, that they hated his people, *
    and dealt untruly with his servants.
  26. Then sent he Moses his servant, *
    and Aaron whom he had chosen.
  27. And these showed his tokens among them, *
    and wonders in the land of Ham.
  28. He sent darkness, and it was dark; *
    and they were not obedient unto his word.
  29. He turned their waters into blood, *
    and slew their fish.
  30. Their land brought forth frogs; *
    yea, even in their kings' chambers.
  31. He spake the word, and there came all manner of flies, *
    and lice in all their quarters.
  32. He gave them hailstones for rain; *
    and flames of fire in their land.
  33. He smote their vines also and fig-trees; *
    and destroyed the trees that were in their coasts.
  34. 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.
  35. He smote all the firstborn in their land; *
    even the chief of all their strength.
  36. He brought them forth also with silver and gold; *
    there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
  37. Egypt was glad at their departing; *
    for they were afraid of them.
  38. He spread out a cloud to be a covering, *
    and fire to give light in the night season.
  39. At their desire he brought quails; *
    and he filled them with the bread of heaven.
  40. He opened the rock of stone, and the waters flowed out, *
    so that rivers ran in the dry places.
  41. For why? he remembered his holy promise; *
    and Abraham his servant.
  42. And he brought forth his people with joy, *
    and his chosen with gladness;
  43. And gave them the lands of the heathen; *
    and they took the labours of the people in possession;
  44. That they might keep his statutes, *
    and observe his laws.
