Psalm 105 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

105 Alleluia. Give glory to the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Who shall declare the powers of the Lord? who shall set forth all his praises?

Blessed are they that keep judgment, and do justice at all times.

Remember us, O Lord, in the favour of thy people: visit us with thy salvation.

That we may see the good of thy chosen, that we may rejoice in the joy of thy nation: that thou mayst be praised with thy inheritance.

We have sinned with our fathers: we have acted unjustly, we have wrought iniquity.

Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt: they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies: And they provoked to wrath going up to the sea, even the Red Sea.

And he saved them for his own name's sake: that he might make his power known.

And he rebuked the Red Sea, and it was dried up: and he led them through the depths, as in a wilderness.

10 And he saved them from the hand of them that hated them: and he redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.

11 And the water covered them that afflicted them: there was not one of them left.

12 And they believed his words: and they sang his praises.

13 They had quickly done, they forgot his works: and they waited not for his counsels.

14 And they coveted their desire in the desert: and they tempted God in the place without water.

15 And he gave them their request: and sent fulness into their souls.

16 And they provoked Moses in the camp, Aaron the holy one of the Lord.

17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan: and covered the congregation of Abiron.

18 And a fire was kindled in their congregation: the flame burned the wicked.

19 They made also a calf in Horeb: and they adored the graven thing.

20 And they changed their glory into the likeness of a calf that eateth grass.

21 They forgot God, who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt,

22 Wondrous works in the land of Cham: terrible things in the Red Sea.

23 And he said that he would destroy them: had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach: To turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them.

24 And they set at nought the desirable land. They believed not his word,

25 And they murmured in their tents: they hearkened not to the voice of the Lord.

26 And he lifted up his hand over them: to overthrow them in the desert;

27 And to cast down their seed among the nations, and to scatter them in the countries.

28 They also were initiated to Beelphegor: and ate the sacrifices of the dead.

29 And they provoked him with their inventions: and destruction was multiplied among them.

30 Then Phinees stood up, and pacified him: and the slaughter ceased.

31 And it was reputed to him unto justice, to generation and generation for evermore.

32 They provoked him also at the waters of contradiction: and Moses was afflicted for their sakes:

33 Because they exasperated his spirit. And he distinguished with his lips.

34 They did not destroy the nations of which the Lord spoke unto them.

35 And they were mingled among the heathens, and learned their works:

36 And served their idols, and it became a stumblingblock to them.

37 And they sacrificed their sons, and their daughters to devils.

38 And they shed innocent blood: the blood of their sons and of their daughters which they sacrificed to the idols of Chanaan. And the land was polluted with blood,

39 And was defiled with their works: and they went aside after their own inventions.

40 And the Lord was exceedingly angry with his people: and he abhorred his inheritance.

41 And he delivered them into the hands of the nations: and they that hated them had dominion over them.

42 And their enemies afflicted them: and they were humbled under their hands:

43 Many times did he deliver them. But they provoked him with their counsel: and they were brought low by their iniquities.

44 And he saw when they were in tribulation: and he heard their prayer.

45 And he was mindful of his covenant: and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.

46 And he gave them unto mercies, in the sight of all those that had made them captives.

47 Save us, O Lord, our God: and gather us from among nations: That we may give thanks to thy holy name, and may glory in thy praise.

48 Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say: So be it, so be it.

Psalm 105 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 105

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
    make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
    tell of all his wonderful acts.
Glory in his holy name;
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Look to the Lord and his strength;
    seek his face always.

Remember the wonders he has done,
    his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,
you his servants, the descendants of Abraham,
    his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.
He is the Lord our God;
    his judgments are in all the earth.

He remembers his covenant forever,
    the promise he made, for a thousand generations,
the covenant he made with Abraham,
    the oath he swore to Isaac.
10 He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree,
    to Israel as an everlasting covenant:
11 “To you I will give the land of Canaan
    as the portion you will inherit.”

12 When they were but few in number,
    few indeed, and strangers in it,
13 they wandered from nation to nation,
    from one kingdom to another.
14 He allowed no one to oppress them;
    for their sake he rebuked kings:
15 “Do not touch my anointed ones;
    do my prophets no harm.”

16 He called down famine on the land
    and destroyed all their supplies of food;
17 and he sent a man before them—
    Joseph, sold as a slave.
18 They bruised his feet with shackles,
    his neck was put in irons,
19 till what he foretold came to pass,
    till the word of the Lord proved him true.
20 The king sent and released him,
    the ruler of peoples set him free.
21 He made him master of his household,
    ruler over all he possessed,
22 to instruct his princes as he pleased
    and teach his elders wisdom.

23 Then Israel entered Egypt;
    Jacob resided as a foreigner in the land of Ham.
24 The Lord made his people very fruitful;
    he made them too numerous for their foes,
25 whose hearts he turned to hate his people,
    to conspire against his servants.
26 He sent Moses his servant,
    and Aaron, whom he had chosen.
27 They performed his signs among them,
    his wonders in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness and made the land dark—
    for had they not rebelled against his words?
29 He turned their waters into blood,
    causing their fish to die.
30 Their land teemed with frogs,
    which went up into the bedrooms of their rulers.
31 He spoke, and there came swarms of flies,
    and gnats throughout their country.
32 He turned their rain into hail,
    with lightning throughout their land;
33 he struck down their vines and fig trees
    and shattered the trees of their country.
34 He spoke, and the locusts came,
    grasshoppers without number;
35 they ate up every green thing in their land,
    ate up the produce of their soil.
36 Then he struck down all the firstborn in their land,
    the firstfruits of all their manhood.
37 He brought out Israel, laden with silver and gold,
    and from among their tribes no one faltered.
38 Egypt was glad when they left,
    because dread of Israel had fallen on them.

39 He spread out a cloud as a covering,
    and a fire to give light at night.
40 They asked, and he brought them quail;
    he fed them well with the bread of heaven.
41 He opened the rock, and water gushed out;
    it flowed like a river in the desert.

42 For he remembered his holy promise
    given to his servant Abraham.
43 He brought out his people with rejoicing,
    his chosen ones with shouts of joy;
44 he gave them the lands of the nations,
    and they fell heir to what others had toiled for—
45 that they might keep his precepts
    and observe his laws.

Praise the Lord.[a]
