Psalms 106
New Living Translation
106Praise the Lord! Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.H1984H3050H3034H3068H2896H2617H5769 2Who can list the glorious miracles of the Lord? Who can ever praise him enough?H4448H1369H3068H8085H8416 3There is joy for those who deal justly with others and always do what is right.H835H8104H4941H6213H6666H6256 4Remember me, Lord, when you show favor to your people; come near and rescue me.H2142H3068H7522H5971H6485H3444 5Let me share in the prosperity of your chosen ones. Let me rejoice in the joy of your people; let me praise you with those who are your heritage.H7200H2896H972H8055H8057H1471H1984H5159 6Like our ancestors, we have sinned. We have done wrong! We have acted wickedly!H2398H1H5753H7561 7Our ancestors in Egypt were not impressed by the Lord’s miraculous deeds. They soon forgot his many acts of kindness to them. Instead, they rebelled against him at the Red Sea.H1H7919H6381H4714H2142H7230H2617H4784H3220H5488H3220 8Even so, he saved them—to defend the honor of his name and to demonstrate his mighty power.H3467H8034H1369H3045 9He commanded the Red Sea to dry up. He led Israel across the sea as if it were a desert.H1605H5488H3220H2717H3212H8415H4057 10So he rescued them from their enemies and redeemed them from their foes.H3467H3027H8130H1350H3027H341 11Then the water returned and covered their enemies; not one of them survived.H4325H3680H6862H259H3498 12Then his people believed his promises. Then they sang his praise.H539H1697H7891H8416 13Yet how quickly they forgot what he had done! They wouldn’t wait for his counsel!H4116H7911H4639H2442H6098 14In the wilderness their desires ran wild, testing God’s patience in that dry wasteland.H183H8378H4057H5254H410H3452 15So he gave them what they asked for, but he sent a plague along with it.H5414H7596H7971H7332H5315 16The people in the camp were jealous of Moses and envious of Aaron, the Lord’s holy priest.H7065H4872H4264H175H6918H3068 17Because of this, the earth opened up; it swallowed Dathan and buried Abiram and the other rebels.H776H6605H1104H1885H3680H5712H48 18Fire fell upon their followers; a flame consumed the wicked.H784H1197H5712H3852H3857H7563 19The people made a calf at Mount Sinai; they bowed before an image made of gold.H6213H5695H2722H7812H4541 20They traded their glorious God for a statue of a grass-eating bull.H4171H3519H8403H7794H398H6212 21They forgot God, their savior, who had done such great things in Egypt -H7911H410H3467H6213H1419H4714 22such wonderful things in the land of Ham, such awesome deeds at the Red Sea.H6381H776H2526H3372H5488H3220 23So he declared he would destroy them. But Moses, his chosen one, stepped between the Lord and the people. He begged him to turn from his anger and not destroy them.H559H8045H3884H4872H972H5975H6440H6556H7725H2534H7843 24The people refused to enter the pleasant land, for they wouldn’t believe his promise to care for them.H3988H2532H776H539H1697 25Instead, they grumbled in their tents and refused to obey the Lord.H7279H168H8085H6963H3068 26Therefore, he solemnly swore that he would kill them in the wilderness,H5375H3027H5307H4057 27that he would scatter their descendants among the nations, exiling them to distant lands.H5307H2233H1471H2219H776 28Then our ancestors joined in the worship of Baal at Peor; they even ate sacrifices offered to the dead!H6775H1187H398H2077H4191 29They angered the Lord with all these things, so a plague broke out among them.H3707H4611H4046H6555 30But Phinehas had the courage to intervene, and the plague was stopped.H5975H6372H6419H4046H6113 31So he has been regarded as a righteous man ever since that time.H2803H6666H1755H1755H5704H5769 32At Meribah, too, they angered the Lord, causing Moses serious trouble.H7107H4325H4808H4809H3415H4872 33They made Moses angry, and he spoke foolishly.H4784H7307H981H8193 34Israel failed to destroy the nations in the land, as the Lord had commanded them.H8045H5971H3068H559 35Instead, they mingled among the pagans and adopted their evil customs.H6148H1471H3925H4639 36They worshiped their idols, which led to their downfall.H5647H6091H4170 37They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons.H2076H1121H1323H7700 38They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters. By sacrificing them to the idols of Canaan, they polluted the land with murder.H8210H5355H1818H1818H1121H1323H2076H6091H3667H776H2610H1818 39They defiled themselves by their evil deeds, and their love of idols was adultery in the Lord’s sight.H2930H4639H2181H4611 40That is why the Lord’s anger burned against his people, and he abhorred his own special possession.H639H3068H2734H5971H8581H5159 41He handed them over to pagan nations, and they were ruled by those who hated them.H5414H3027H1471H8130H4910 42Their enemies crushed them and brought them under their cruel power.H341H3905H3665H3027 43Again and again he rescued them, but they chose to rebel against him, and they were finally destroyed by their sin.H7227H6471H5337H4784H6098H4355H5771 44Even so, he pitied them in their distress and listened to their cries.H7200H6862H8085H7440 45He remembered his covenant with them and relented because of his unfailing love.H2142H1285H5162H7230H2617 46He even caused their captors to treat them with kindness.H5414H7356H6440H7617 47Save us, O Lord our God! Gather us back from among the nations, so we can thank your holy name and rejoice and praise you.H3467H3068H430H6908H1471H3034H6944H8034H7623H8416 48Praise the Lord, the God of Israel, who lives from everlasting to everlasting! Let all the people say, “Amen!” Praise the Lord!H1288H3068H430H3478H5769H5769H5971H559H543H1984H3050
