106:1 icapsraise ye the Lord. O giue thankes vnto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercie endureth for euer. Margin Note
106:2 Who can vtter the mighty acts of the Lord? who can shew foorth all his praise?  
106:3 Blessed are they that keepe iudgement: and he that doeth righteousnesse at all times.  
106:4 Remember me, O Lord, with the fauour that thou bearest vnto thy people: O visite me with thy saluation:  
106:5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may reioyce in the gladnesse of thy nation: that I may glory with thine inheritance.  
106:6 Wee haue sinned with our fathers: we haue committed iniquitie, we haue done wickedly.  
106:7 Our fathers vnderstood not thy wonders in Egypt, they remembred not the multitude of thy mercies: but prouoked him at the sea, euen at the Red-sea.  
106:8 Neuerthelesse hee saued them for his Names sake: that hee might make his mighty power to be knowen.  
106:9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried vp: so hee led them through the depthes, as through the wildernes.  
106:10 And he saued them from the hand of him that hated them: and redeemed them from the hand of the enemie.  
106:11 And the waters couered their enemies: there was not one of them left.  
106:12 Then beleeued they his words: they sang his praise.  
106:13 They soone forgate his works: they waited not for his counsell: Margin Note
106:14 But lusted exceedingly in the wildernes: & tempted God in the desert. Margin Note
106:15 And he gaue them their request: but sent leannesse into their soule.  
106:16 They enuied Moses also in the campe: and Aaron the Saint of the Lord.  
106:17 The earth opened and swallowed vp Dathan: and couered the company of Abiram.  
106:18 And a fire was kindled in their company: the flame burnt vp the wicked.  
106:19 They made a calfe in Horeb: and worshipped the molten image.  
106:20 Thus they changed their glory, into the similitude of an oxe that eateth grasse.  
106:21 They forgate God their Sauiour: which had done great things in Egypt:  
106:22 Wonderous workes in the lande of Ham: and terrible things by the red Sea.  
106:23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach: to turne away his wrath, lest hee should destroy them.  
106:24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land: they beleeued not his word: Margin Note
106:25 But murmured in their tents: and hearkened not vnto the voyce of the Lord.  
106:26 Therefore he lifted vp his hande against them: to ouerthrow them in the wildernesse:  
106:27 To ouerthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands. Margin Note
106:28 They ioyned themselues also vnto Baal-Peor: and ate the sacrifices of the dead.  
106:29 Thus they prouoked him to anger with their inuentions: and the plague brake in vpon them.  
106:30 Then stood vp Phinehas, and executed iudgement: and so the plague was stayed.  
106:31 And that was counted vnto him for righteousnesse: vnto all generations for euermore.  
106:32 They angred him also at the waters of strife: so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:  
106:33 Because they prouoked his spirit: so that hee spake vnaduisedly with his lippes.  
106:34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the Lord commanded them:  
106:35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their workes.  
106:36 And they serued their idoles: which were a snare vnto them.  
106:37 Yea they sacrificed their sonnes, and their daughters vnto deuils,  
106:38 And shed innocent blood, euen the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whome they sacrificed vnto the idoles of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.  
106:39 Thus were they defiled with their owne works: and went a whoring with their owne inuentions.  
106:40 Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people: insomuch that he abhorred his owne inheritance.  
106:41 And he gaue them into the hand of the heathen: and they that hated them, ruled ouer them.  
106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them: and they were brought into subiection vnder their hand.  
106:43 Many times did he deliuer them: but they prouoked him with their counsell, and were brought low for their iniquitie. Margin Note
106:44 Neuertheles he regarded their affliction: when he heard their crie.  
106:45 And hee remembred for them his couenant: and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.  
106:46 He made them also to be pitied, of all those that caried them captiues.  
106:47 Saue vs, O Lord our God, and gather vs from among the heathen to giue thankes vnto thy holy Name: and to triumph in thy praise.  
106:48 Blessed bee the Lord God of Israel from euerlasting to euerlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the Lord.
