Scottish Psalter And Paraphrases by Anonymous

Psalm 106


^1Give praise and thanks unto the Lord,

for bountiful is he;

His tender mercy doth endure

unto eternity.

^2God's mighty works who can express?

or shew forth all his praise?

^3Blessed are they that judgment keep,

and justly do always.

^4Remember me, Lord, with that love

which thou to thine dost bear;

With thy salvation, O my God,

to visit me draw near:

^5That I thy chosen's good may see,

and in their joy rejoice;

And may with thine inheritance

triumph with cheerful voice.

^6We with our fathers sinned have,

and of iniquity

Too long we have the workers been;

we have done wickedly.

^7The wonders great, which thou, O Lord,

didst work in Egypt land,

Our fathers, though they saw, yet them

they did not understand:

And they thy mercies' multitude

kept not in memory;

But at the sea, ev'n the Red sea,

provok'd him grievously.

^8Nevertheless he saved them,

ev'n for his own name's sake;

That so he might to be well known

his mighty power make.

^9When he the Red sea did rebuke,

then dried up it was:

Through depths, as through the wilderness,

he safely made them pass.

^10From hands of those that hated them

he did his people save;

And from the en'my's cruel hand

to them redemption gave.

^11The waters overwhelm'd their foes;

not one was left alive.

^12Then they believ'd his word, and praise

to him in songs did give.

^13But soon did they his mighty works

forget unthankfully,

And on his counsel and his will

did not wait patiently;

^14But much did lust in wilderness,

and God in desert tempt.

^15He gave them what they sought, but to

their soul he leanness sent.

^16And against Moses in the camp

their envy did appear;

At Aaron they, the saint of God,

envious also were.

^17Therefore the earth did open wide,

and Dathan did devour,

And all Abiram's company

did cover in that hour.

^18Likewise among their company

a fire was kindled then;

And so the hot consuming flame

burnt up these wicked men.

^19Upon the hill of Horeb they

an idol-calf did frame,

A molten image they did make,

and worshipped the same.

^20And thus their glory, and their God,

most vainly changed they

Into the likeness of an ox

that eateth grass or hay.

^21They did forget the mighty God,

that had their saviour been,

By whom such great things brought to pass

they had in Egypt seen.

^22In Ham's land he did wondrous works,

things terrible did he,

When he his mighty hand and arm

stretch'd out at the Red sea.

^23Then said he, He would them destroy,

had not, his wrath to stay,

His chosen Moses stood in breach,

that them he should not slay.

^24Yea, they despis'd the pleasant land,

believed not his word:

^25But in their tents they murmured,

not heark'ning to the Lord.

^26Therefore in desert them to slay

he lifted up his hand:

^27'Mong nations to o'erthrow their seed,

and scatter in each land.

^28They unto Baal-peor did

themselves associate;

The sacrifices of the dead

they did profanely eat.

^29Thus, by their lewd inventions,

they did provoke his ire;

And then upon them suddenly

the plague brake in as fire.

^30Then Phin'has rose, and justice did,

and so the plague did cease;

^31That to all ages counted was

to him for righteousness.

^32And at the waters, where they strove,

they did him angry make,

In such sort, that it fared ill

with Moses for their sake:

^33Because they there his spirit meek

provoked bitterly,

So that he utter'd with his lips

words unadvisedly.

^34Nor, as the Lord commanded them,

did they the nations slay:

^35But with the heathen mingled were,

and learn'd of them their way.

^36And they their idols serv'd, which did

a snare unto them turn.

^37Their sons and daughters they to dev'ls

in sacrifice did burn.

^38In their own children's guiltless blood

their hands they did imbrue,

Whom to Canaan's idols they

for sacrifices slew:

So was the land defil'd with blood.

^39They stain'd with their own way,

And with their own inventions

a whoring they did stray.

^40Against his people kindled was

the wrath of God therefore,

Insomuch that he did his own

inheritance abhor.

^41He gave them to the heathen's hand;

their foes did them command.

^42Their en'mies them oppress'd, they were

made subject to their hand.

^43He many times deliver'd them;

but with their counsel so

They him provok'd, that for their sin

they were brought very low.

^44Yet their affliction he beheld,

when he did hear their cry:

^45And he for them his covenant

did call to memory;

After his mercies' multitude

^46he did repent: And made

Them to be pity'd of all those

who did them captive lead.

^47O Lord our God, us save, and gather

the heathen from among,

That we thy holy name may praise

in a triumphant song.

^48Bless'd be Jehovah, Isr'el's God,

to all eternity:

Let all the people say, Amen.

Praise to the Lord give ye.
