Give Thanks to the LORD, for He Is Good

1O geue thankes vnto the LORDE, for he is gracious, and his mercy endureth for euer.

2Who can expresse ye noble actes of the LORDE, or shewe forth all his prayse?

3Blessed are they that allwaye kepe iudgment, and do rightuousnes.

4Remembre vs (o LORDE) acordinge to the fauoure that thou bearest vnto thy people: o vyset vs wt thy sauinge health.

5That we might se the pleasure of thy chosen, that we might reioyse in the gladnesse of thy people, and geue thankes with thine enheritaunce.

6We haue synned with oure fathers, we haue done amysse, we haue dealt wickedly.

7Oure fathers regarded not thy wonders in Egipte, they kepte not thy greate goodnesse in remebraunce: but were dishobediet at the see, eue at the reed see.

8Neuertheles, he helped the for his names sake, that he might make his power to be knowne.

9He rebuked the reed see, and it was dried vp: so he led the thorow the depe as in a wildernesse.

10Thus he saued them from the honde of the hater, & delyuered them from the honde of the enemie.

11As for those yt troubled them, the waters ouerwhelmed the, there was not one of the left.

12Then beleued they in his worde, and songe prayse vnto him.

13But within a whyle they forgat his workes, & wolde not abyde his councell.

14A lust came vpo them in the wildernesse, so that they tempted God in the deserte.

15Yet he gaue them their desyre, and sent the ynough at their willes.

16They angred Moses in the tetes, and Aaron the saynte of the LORDE.

17So the earth opened & swalowed vp Dathan, and couered the congregacio of Abiram.

18The fyre was kyndled in their company, the flame brent vp the vngodly.

19They made a calfe in Horeb, and worshipped the molte ymage.

20Thus they turned his glory into the similitude of a calfe, yt eateth haye.

21They forgat God their Sauior, which had done so greate thinges in Egipte.

22Wonderous workes in the londe of Ham, and fearfull thinges in the reed see.

23So he sayde he wolde haue destroyed them, had not Moses his chosen stonde before him in yt gappe: to turne awaie his wrothfull indignacion, lest he shulde destroye the.

24Yee they thought scorne of yt pleasaunt londe, and gaue no credence vnto his worde.

25But murmured in their tentes, and herkened not vnto the voyce of the LORDE.

26Then lift he vp his honde agaynst them, to ouerthrowe them in the wildernes.

27To cast out their sede amonge the nacions, and to scater them in the londes.

28They ioyned them selues vnto Baal Peor, and ate the offeringes of the deed.

29Thus they prouoked him vnto anger with their owne invecions, and the plage was greate amonge them.

30Then stode vp Phineas and excuted iustice, & so the plage ceased.

31And that was counted vnto him for rightuousnesse, amonge all posterites for euermore.

32They angerd him also at the waters of strife, so that Moses was punyshed for their sakes.

33Because they prouoked his sprete, and he tolde the planely with his lippes.

34Nether destroyed they the Heithen, as the LORDE commaunded them.

35But were mengled amonge the Heithen, and lerned their workes.

36In so moch that they worshipped their ymages, which turned to their owne decaye.

37Yee they offred their sonnes & their doughters vnto deuels.

38And shed the innocent bloude of their sonnes and of their doughters, whom they offred vnto the ymages of Canaan, so that the londe was defyled with bloude.

39Thus were they stayned wt their owne workes, and wente a whoringe with their owne invencions.

40Therfore was the wrath of the LORDE kyndled agaynst his people, in so moch that he abhorred his owne enheritaunce.

41And gaue them ouer in to the honde of the Heithe, and they that hated them, were lordes ouer them.

42Their enemies oppressed the, and had them in subieccion.

43Many a tyme dyd he delyuer them, but they prouoked him with their owne invecions, and were brought downe for their wickednesse.

44Neuerthelesse whe he sawe their aduersite, he herde their complaynte.

45He thought vpo his couenaunt, and pitied the, acordinge vnto the multitude of his mercies.

46Yee he made all those yt had led them awaye captiue, to pitie them.

47Delyuer vs (o LORDE oure God) & gather vs from amoge the Heithen: that we maye geue thankes to thy holy name, & make oure boast of thy prayse.

48Blessed be the LORDE God of Israel from euerlastinge and worlde without ende, and let all people saye: Amen, Amen. Halleluya.
