1
O giue thankes vnto the Lord, call vpon his name: make knowen his deeds among the people.
2
Sing vnto him;
sing Psalmes vnto him: talke yee of all his wondrous workes.
3
Glory yee in his holy name: let the heart of them reioyce, that seeke the Lord.
4
Seeke the Lord, and his strength: seeke his face euermore.
5
Remember his maruellous workes, that hee hath done: his wonders, and the iudgements of his mouth,
6
O yee seede of Abraham his seruant: yee children of Iacob his chosen.
7
He is the Lord our God: his iudgements are in all the earth.
8
He hath remembred his couenant for euer: the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
9
Which couenant he made with Abraham, and his oath vnto Isaac:
10
And confirmed the same vnto Iacob for a law: and to Israel for an euerlasting couenant:
11
Saying, Unto thee will I giue the land of Canaan: the lot of your inheritance.
12
When they were but a few men in number: yea very few, & strangers in it.
13
When they went from one nation to another: from one kingdome to another people.
14
He suffred no man to doe them wrong: yea he reproued kings for their sakes:
15
Saying, Touch not mine anointed;
and doe my Prophets no harme.
16
Moreouer hee called for a famine vpon the land: he brake the whole staffe of bread.
17
Hee sent a man before them: euen Ioseph, who was sold for a seruant.
18
Whose feete they hurt with fetters: he was layd in iron.
19
Untill the time that his word came: the word of the Lord tried him.
20
The king sent and loosed him: euen the ruler of the people, and let him goe free.
21
Hee made him lord of his house: and ruler of all his substance:
22
To binde his princes at his pleasure: and teach his Senatours wisedome.
23
Israel also came into Egypt: and Iacob soiourned in the land of Ham.
24
And hee increased his people greatly: and made them stronger then their enemies.
25
He turned their heart to hate his people: to deale subtilly with his seruants.
26
Hee sent Moses his seruant: and Aaron whom he had chosen.
27
They shewed his signes among them: and wonders in the land of Ham.
28
Hee sent darknesse, and made it darke: and they rebelled not against his word.
29
Hee turned their waters into blood: and slew their fish.
30
The land brought foorth frogs in abundance: in the chambers of their kings.
31
He spake, and there came diuers sorts of flies: and lice in all their coasts.
32
Hee gaue them haile for raine: and flaming fire in their laud.
33
Hee smote their Uines also, and their figge trees: and brake the trees of their coastes.
34
He spake, and the locusts came: and catterpillers, and that without number,
35
And did eate vp all the herbes in their land: and deuoured the fruite of their ground.
36
Hee smote also all the first borne in their land: the chiefe of all their strength.
37
Hee brought them foorth also with siluer and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
38
Egypt was glad when they departed: for the feare of them fell vpon them.
39
He spread a cloud for a couering: and fire to giue light in the night.
40
The people asked, and he brought quailes: and satisfied them with the bread of heauen.
41
He opened the rocke, and the waters gushed out: they ranne in the dry places like a riuer.
42
For he remembred his holy promise: and Abraham his seruant.
43
And he brought forth his people with ioy: and his chosen with gladnesse:
44
And gaue them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people:
45
That they might obserue his statutes, and keepe his Lawes, Praise ye the Lord.
