Bless the Lord, O my soul!
The Eternal Faithfulness of the Lord
105 Oh, give thanks to the Lord!
7 He is the Lord our God;
13 When they went from one nation to another,
16 Moreover He called for a famine in the land;

106 Praise the Lord!
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!

4 Remember me, O Lord, with the favor You have toward Your people.
6 We have sinned with our fathers,
8 Nevertheless He saved them for His name’s sake,
13 They soon forgot His works;
16 When they envied Moses in the camp,
19 They made a calf in Horeb,
24 Then they despised the pleasant land;
28 They joined themselves also to Baal of Peor,
32 They angered Him also at the waters of strife,[m]
34 They did not destroy the peoples,
40 Therefore the wrath of the Lord was kindled against His people,
44 Nevertheless He regarded their affliction,
47 Save us, O Lord our God,
48 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel
Praise the Lord!
