Psalm 106:1-48 NIV

Psalm 106:1-48 NIV [1] Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. [2] Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the LORD or fully declare his praise? [3] Blessed are those who act justly, who always do what is right. [4] Remember me, LORD, when you show favor to your people, come to my aid when you save them, [5] that I may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may share in the joy of your nation and join your inheritance in giving praise. [6] We have sinned, even as our ancestors did; we have done wrong and acted wickedly. [7] When our ancestors were in Egypt, they gave no thought to your miracles; they did not remember your many kindnesses, and they rebelled by the sea, the Red Sea. [8] Yet he saved them for his name's sake, to make his mighty power known. [9] He rebuked the Red Sea, and it dried up; he led them through the depths as through a desert. [10] He saved them from the hand of the foe; from the hand of the enemy he redeemed them. [11] The waters covered their adversaries; not one of them survived. [12] Then they believed his promises and sang his praise. [13] But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his plan to unfold. [14] In the desert they gave in to their craving; in the wilderness they put God to the test. [15] So he gave them what they asked for, but sent a wasting disease among them. [16] In the camp they grew envious of Moses and of Aaron, who was consecrated to the LORD. [17] The earth opened up and swallowed Dathan; it buried the company of Abiram. [18] Fire blazed among their followers; a flame consumed the wicked. [19] At Horeb they made a calf and worshiped an idol cast from metal. [20] They exchanged their glorious God for an image of a bull, which eats grass. [21] They forgot the God who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt, [22] miracles in the land of Ham and awesome deeds by the Red Sea. [23] So he said he would destroy them-had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him to keep his wrath from destroying them. [24] Then they despised the pleasant land; they did not believe his promise. [25] They grumbled in their tents and did not obey the LORD. [26] So he swore to them with uplifted hand that he would make them fall in the wilderness, [27] make their descendants fall among the nations and scatter them throughout the lands. [28] They yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor and ate sacrifices offered to lifeless gods; [29] they aroused the LORD's anger by their wicked deeds, and a plague broke out among them. [30] But Phinehas stood up and intervened, and the plague was checked. [31] This was credited to him as righteousness for endless generations to come. [32] By the waters of Meribah they angered the LORD, and trouble came to Moses because of them; [33] for they rebelled against the Spirit of God, and rash words came from Moses' lips. [34] They did not destroy the peoples as the LORD had commanded them, [35] but they mingled with the nations and adopted their customs. [36] They worshiped their idols, which became a snare to them. [37] They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to false gods. [38] They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood. [39] They defiled themselves by what they did; by their deeds they prostituted themselves. [40] Therefore the LORD was angry with his people and abhorred his inheritance. [41] He gave them into the hands of the nations, and their foes ruled over them. [42] Their enemies oppressed them and subjected them to their power. [43] Many times he delivered them, but they were bent on rebellion and they wasted away in their sin. [44] Yet he took note of their distress when he heard their cry; [45] for their sake he remembered his covenant and out of his great love he relented. [46] He caused all who held them captive to show them mercy. [47] Save us, LORD our God, and gather us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise. [48] Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Let all the people say, "Amen!" Praise the LORD.
