1 Celebrate Jehovah, for he is good; For to everlasting is his mercy.
2 Who shall express the mighty acts of Jehovah? Who shall declare all his praise?
3 Blessed are they who keep judgment, Blessed is he who doeth righteousness at all times.
4 Remember me, O Jehovah! with the good will [which thou bearest towards] thy people. Visit me with thy salvation;
5 That I may see the good of thy chosen ones, That I may rejoice in the joy of thy nation, That I may glory with thy heritage.
6 We have sinned with our fathers, We have acted iniquitously, we have done wickedly.
7 Our fathers in Egypt understood not thy wonders; They remembered not the multitude of thy kindnesses; And they rebelled at the sea, at the Red Sea.
8 Yet he saved them for the sake of his own name, That he might cause to be known his power.
9 And he rebuked the Red Sea, and it was dried up; And he made them walk in the deeps as in a desert.
10 And he saved them from the hand of the enemy, And redeemed them from the hand of the adversary.
11 And cover did the waters their oppressors: One of them was not left.
12 Then they believed his words; They sang his praise.
13 They made haste, they forgat his works; They did not wait for his counsel;
14 And they lusted greatly in the desert, And tempted God in the wilderness.
15 And he gave them their request; But sent leanness into their souls.
16 And they envied Moses in the camp, And Aaron, the saint of Jehovah.
17 Open did the earth and swallowed up Dathan, And covered over the tent of Abiram.
18 And kindled was a fire in their company, The flame burned up the ungodly.
19 They made a calf in Horeb, And worshipped before the molten image.
20 And they changed their glory Into the likeness of an ox that eateth hay.
21 They forgat God their Savior, Who had done great things in Egypt;
22 Miracles in the land of Ham, Terrible things at the Red Sea.
23 And he said that he would destroy them, Unless Moses his chosen had stood in the breach before his face, To turn away his wrath, that he might not destroy them
24 And they despised the land of pleasantness; They believed not his word;
25 And they mutinied in their tents, They hearkened not to the voice of Jehovah.
26 And he lifted tip his hand against them, To destroy them in the desert:
27 And to scatter their seed among the heathen, And to disperse them throughout the lands.
28 And they joined themselves to Baal-peor, And ate the sacrifices of things dead.
29 And they provoked God to anger by their works: And break in upon them did the plague.
30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: And stayed was the plague.
31 And that was imputed to him for righteousness From generation to generation, even for ever.
32 And they provoked him to anger at the waters of strife, And it turned out in to Moses on their account:
33 For they embittered his spirit, And he spake [rashly] with his lips.
34 They did not destroy the nations, As Jehovah had commanded them:
35 And they were mingled with the heathen, And learned their works:
36 And they served their idols; Which were to them for ruin.
37 And they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons;
38 And they shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and of their daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And polluted was the land with bloods.
39 And they were defiled in their own works, And were adulterous in their own inventions.
40 Then burn did the wrath of Jehovah against his people, And he abhorred his inheritance;
41 And he delivered them into the hands of the heathen; And those had dominion over them who hated them:
42 And subdue them did their enemies, And they were afflicted under their hand.
43 Many times did he deliver them; But they provoked him with their counsels, And were oppressed in their iniquity.
44 Yet he saw when they were in distress, And heard their cry:
45 And he remembered towards them his covenant; And it repented him according to the greatness of his mercies.
46 And he made them to find pity Before all who had led them captive.
47 Save us, O Jehovah, our God! And gather us from among the heathen, That we may celebrate thy holy name, That we may glory in thy praise.
48 Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Israel, From everlasting to everlasting; And say let all the people, Amen. Praise ye Jehovah.
