Brenton Septuagint Translation
Tell of His Wonderful Works!
1Alleluia. Give thanks to the Lord, and call upon his name; declare his works among the heathen.
2Sing to him, yea, sing praises to him: tell forth all his wonderful works.
3Glory in his holy name: let the heart of them that seek the Lord rejoice.
4Seek ye the Lord, and be strengthened; seek his face continually.
5Remember his wonderful works that he has done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
6ye seed of Abraam, his servants, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
7He is the Lord our God; his judgments are in all the earth.
8He has remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded for a thousand generation:
9which he established as a covenant to Abraam, and he remembered his oath to Isaac.
10And he established it to Jacob for an ordinance, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant;
11saying To thee will I give the land of Chanaan, the line of your inheritance:
12when they were few in number, very few, and sojourners in it.
13And they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people.
14He suffered no man to wrong them; and he rebuked kings for their sakes:
15saying, Touch not my anointed ones; and do my prophets no harm.
16Moreover he called for a famine upon the land; he broke the whole support of bread.
17He sent a man before them; Joseph was sold for a slave.
18They hurt his feet with fetters; his soul passed into iron,
19until the time that his cause came on; the word of the Lord tried him as fire.
20The king sent and loosed him; even the prince of the people, and let him go free.
21He made him Lord over his house, and ruler of all his substance;
22to chastise his rulers at his pleasure, and to teach his elders wisdom.
23Israel also came into Egypt, and Jacob sojourned in the land of Cham.
24And he increased his people greatly, and made them stronger than their enemies.
25And he turned their heart to hate his people, to deal craftily with his servants.
26He sent fort Moses his servant, and Aaron whom he had chosen.
27He established among them his signs, and his wonders in the land of Cham.
28He sent forth darkness, and made it dark; yet they rebelled against his words.
29He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.
30Their land produced frogs abundantly, in the chambers of their kings.
31He spoke, and the dog-fly came, and lice in all their coasts.
32He turned their rain into hail, and sent flaming fire in their land.
33And he smote their vines and their fig trees; and broke every tree of their coast.
34He spoke, and the locust came, and caterpillars innumerable,
35and devoured all the grass in their land, and devoured the fruit of the ground.
36He smote also every first-born of their land, the first-fruits of all their labour.
37And he brought them out with silver and gold; and there was not a feeble one among their tribes.
38Egypt rejoiced at their departing; for the fear of them fell upon them.
39He spread out a cloud for a covering to them, and fire to give them light by night.
40They asked, and the quail came, and he satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
41He clave the rock, and the waters flowed, rivers ran in dry places.
42For he remembered his holy word, which he promised to Abraam his servant.
43And he brought out his people with exultation, and his chosen with joy;
44and gave them the lands of the heathen; and they inherited the labours of the people;
45that they might keep his ordinances, and diligently seek his law.
