Psalm 105. Confitemini Domino.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twenty-first Day - Morning Prayer.

Part I: Confitemini Domino.

  1. Give thanks to the Lord and call upon his Name; *
    make known his deeds among the peoples.
  2. Sing to him, sing praises to him, *
    and speak of all his marvelous works.
  3. Glory in his holy Name; *
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
  4. Search for the Lord and his strength; *
    continually seek his face.
  5. Remember the marvels he has done, *
    his wonders and the judgments of his mouth,
  6. O offspring of Abraham his servant, *
    O children of Jacob his chosen.
  7. He is the Lord our God; *
    his judgments prevail in all the world.
  8. He has always been mindful of his covenant, *
    the promise he made for a thousand generations:
  9. The covenant he made with Abraham, *
    the oath that he swore to Isaac,
  10. Which he established as a statute for Jacob, *
    an everlasting covenant for Israel,
  11. Saying, "To you will I give the land of Canaan *
    to be your allotted inheritance."
  12. When they were few in number, *
    of little account, and sojourners in the land,
  13. Wandering from nation to nation *
    and from one kingdom to another,
  14. He let no one oppress them *
    and rebuked kings for their sake,
  15. Saying, "Do not touch my anointed *
    and do my prophets no harm."
  16. Then he called for a famine in the land *
    and destroyed the supply of bread.
  17. He sent a man before them, *
    Joseph, who was sold as a slave.
  18. They bruised his feet in fetters; *
    his neck they put in an iron collar.
  19. Until his prediction came to pass, *
    the word of the Lord tested him.
  20. The king sent and released him; *
    the ruler of the peoples set him free.
  21. He set him as a master over his household, *
    as a ruler over all his possessions,
  22. To instruct his princes according to his will *
    and to teach his elders wisdom.

Part II: Et intravit Israel

  1. Israel came into Egypt, *
    and Jacob became a sojourner in the land of Ham.
  2. The Lord made his people exceedingly fruitful; *
    he made them stronger than their enemies;
  3. Whose heart he turned, so that they hated his people, *
    and dealt unjustly with his servants.
  4. He sent Moses his servant, *
    and Aaron whom he had chosen.
  5. They worked his signs among them, *
    and portents in the land of Ham.
  6. He sent darkness, and it grew dark; *
    but the Egyptians rebelled against his words.
  7. He turned their waters into blood *
    and caused their fish to die.
  8. Their land was overrun by frogs, *
    in the very chambers of their kings.
  9. He spoke, and there came swarms of insects *
    and gnats within all their borders.
  10. He gave them hailstones instead of rain, *
    and flames of fire throughout their land.
  11. He blasted their vines and their fig trees *
    and shattered every tree in their country.
  12. He spoke, and the locust came, *
    and young locusts without number,
  13. Which ate up all the green plants in their land *
    and devoured the fruit of their soil.
  14. He struck down the firstborn of their land, *
    the first fruits of all their strength.
  15. He led out his people with silver and gold; *
    in all their tribes there was not one that stumbled.
  16. Egypt was glad of their going, *
    because they were afraid of them.
  17. He spread out a cloud for a covering *
    and a fire to give light in the night season.
  18. They asked, and quails appeared, *
    and he satisfied them with bread from heaven.
  19. He opened the rock, and water flowed, *
    so the river ran in the dry places.
  20. For God remembered his holy word *
    and Abraham his servant.
  21. So he led forth his people with gladness, *
    his chosen with shouts of joy.
  22. He gave his people the lands of the nations, *
    and they took the fruit of others' toil,
  23. That they might keep his statutes *
    and observe his laws. Hallelujah!
