Psalm 106
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

Give Thanks to the LORD, for He Is Good

1Praise Jah. Confess to Jehovah, for he is good, for his mercy is forever.

2Who shall speak the powers of Jehovah? will he cause all his praises to be heard?

3Happy they watching judgment, doing justice in all time.

4Remember us, O Jehovah: thy people with acceptance: review us with thy salvation;

5To see the goodness of thy chosen ones, to be glad in the gladness of thy nation, to boast with thine inheritance.

6We sinned with our fathers, we acted perversely, we did evil.

7Our fathers considered not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; they embittered at the sea, the sea of sedge;

8And he will save them for sake of his name, to make known his powers.

9And he will rebuke in the sea of sedge, and it will be dried up: and he will lead them in the depths as the desert.

10And he will save them from the hand of him hating, and he will redeem them from the hand of the enemy.

11And the waters will cover their enemies: one of them was not left.

12And they will believe in his words, they will sing his praise.

13They hastened; they forget his works; they waited not for his counsel.

14And they will desire a desire in the desert, and they will tempt God in the waste.

15And he will give to them their asking; and he will send leanness into their soul.

16And they will be jealous against Moses in the camp, against Aaron the holy of Jehovah.

17The earth will open and will swallow down Dathan, and will cover the assembly of Abiram.

18And a fire will be kindled in their assembly; the flame will burn up the unjust.

19They will make a calf in Horeb, and they will worship to the molten image.

20And they will change their glory into the likeness of an ox eating grass.

21They forgat God saving them, doing great things in Egypt.

22Wonders in the land of Ham, terrible things in the sea of sedge.

23And he will say to destroy them unless Moses his chosen stood in the breaking before him to turn away his wrath from destroying.

24And they will despise in the land of desire; they trusted not to his word:

25And they will murmur in their tents; they heard not to the voice of Jehovah.

26And he will lift up his hand against them: he will cause them to fall in the desert:

27And to cause their seed to fall among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.

28And they will be bound to Baalpeor, and they will eat the sacrifices of the dead.

29And they will irritate in their doings, and the blow will break upon them.

30And Phinehas will stand and intercede, and the blow will be restrained.

31And it will be reckoned to him for justice to generation and generation, even to forever.

32And they will anger him at the water of strife, and it will be evil to Moses on account of them:

33For they embittered his spirit, and he talked idly with his lips.

34They did not destroy the peoples which Jehovah said to them.

35And they will mingle with the nations, and they will learn their works.

36And they will serve their images, and they will be for a snare to them.

37And they will sacrifice their sons and their daughters to lords.

38And they will pour out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and their daughters which they sacrificed to the images of Canaan: and the land will be polluted with bloods.

39And they will be defiled with their works: and they will commit fornication in their doings.

40And the anger of Jehovah will kindle against his people, and he will abhor his inheritance.

41And he will give them into the hand of the nations; and they hating them shall rule over them.

42And their enemies will press them, and they shall be humbled under their hand.

43Many times he will deliver them, and they will embitter with their counsel, and they will be brought low in their iniquity.

44And he will look upon straits to them in his hearing their wailing.

45And he will remember his covenant to them, and he will console according to the multitude of his mercy.

46And he will give them for compassions before all those carrying them away captive.

47Save us, O Jehovah our God, and gather us from the nations to confess to thy holy name, to boast in thy praise.

48Blessed be Jehovah the God of Israel from forever and even to forever: and all the people saying, Amen. Praise ye Jah.
