105 Alleluia. Acknowledge ye to the Lord, and inwardly call ye his name; tell ye his works among heathen men. (Alleluia. Give ye thanks to the Lord, and call ye on his name; tell ye about his works among the heathen.) [a]

Sing ye to him, and say ye psalm to him, and tell ye all his marvels (and tell ye of all his marvellous deeds);

be ye praised in his holy name. The heart of men seeking the Lord be glad; (glory ye in his holy name. Let the hearts of the people seeking the Lord be glad;)

seek ye the Lord, and be ye confirmed; seek ye ever[more] his face. (seek ye the Lord, who is your strength; seek ye his face forevermore.)

Have ye mind on his marvels, which he did; on his great wonders, and dooms of his mouth. (Remember the marvellous deeds, which he hath done; and the judgements, which came forth from his mouth.)

The seed of Abraham, his servant; the sons of Jacob, his chosen man. (Ye descendants of his servant Abraham; ye children of his chosen man Jacob.)

He is our Lord God; his dooms be in all the earth. (He is the Lord our God; his judgements be for all the earth.)

He was mindful of his testament into the world; of the word which he commanded into a thousand generations. (He shall remember his covenant forever; yea, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.)

Which he disposed to Abraham; and of his oath to Isaac. (The covenant which he made with Abraham; and his oath to Isaac.)

10 And he ordained it to Jacob into a commandment; and to Israel into everlasting testament. (And he ordained it to Jacob for a law; yea, to Israel for an everlasting covenant.)

11 And he said, I shall give to thee the land of Canaan; the cord of your heritage (yea, your possession, your inheritance).

12 When they were in a little number; and the comelings of them were full few. (When they were little in number; yea, very few, and newcomers, or strangers, in that land.)

13 And they passed from folk into folk; and from a realm into another people. (And they went from one nation to another; and from one kingdom to another.)

14 He left not a man to annoy them; and he chastised kings for them. (He did not let anyone harm them; and he admonished, or warned, kings about them.)

15 (Saying,) Do not ye touch my christs; and do not ye do wickedly among my prophets. (Saying, Do not ye touch my anointed servants; and do not ye harm my prophets.)

16 And God called hunger on earth (And God called for hunger, or a famine, on the earth); and he wasted all the steadfastness of bread.

17 He sent a man before them; Joseph was sold into a servant (Joseph was sold as a slave).

18 They made low his feet in fetters, iron passed by his soul; (They put his feet in fetters, and an iron collar around his neck;)

19 till the word of him came. The speech of the Lord enflamed him; (until the word of the Lord came as predicted. The word of the Lord proved him right;)

20 the king sent and unbound him; the prince of peoples sent and delivered him. (then the king sent and unbound him; yea, the ruler of the nations sent word, and set him free.)

21 He ordained him lord of his house; and prince of all his possession. (He ordained him lord of his house; and the ruler of all his possessions.)

22 That he should learn his princes as himself (And that he should teach his leaders, or his officials, as he desired); and that he should teach his eld men prudence.

23 And Israel entered into Egypt; and Jacob was a comeling in the land of Ham. (And then Jacob, or Israel, came down to Egypt; and he was a newcomer, or a stranger, in the land of Ham.)

24 And God increased his people greatly; and made them steadfast on his enemies. (And God greatly increased his people; and he made them stronger than their enemies.)

25 He turned the heart of them, that they hated his people; and did guile against his servants. (And then he turned the hearts of their enemies, so that they hated his people; and they were deceitful with his servants.)

26 He sent Moses, his servant; [and] that Aaron, whom he chose.

27 He putted in them (to tell and to do) the words of his miracles; and of his great wonders in the land of Ham. (And they told of his miracles beforehand; and then they performed his great wonders in the land of Egypt.)

28 He sent darknesses, and made (it) dark; and he made not bitter his words. (He sent darkness, and all the land was made dark; but still the Egyptians resisted his commands.)

29 He turned the waters of them into blood; and he killed the fishes of them.

30 And the land of them gave paddocks; in the privy places of the kings of them. (And their land brought forth frogs; even the king’s private rooms were filled with them.)

31 God said, and a flesh fly came; and gnats in all the coasts of them. (And God spoke, and then swarms of flies came; and gnats as well, in all their coasts.)

32 He setted their rains (into) hail; (and) fire burning in the land of them.

33 And he smote the vines of them, and the fig trees of them; and all-brake the trees of the coasts of them.

34 He said, and the locust(s) came; and a bruchus of which (there) was no number (and innumerable bruchi).

35 And it ate all the hay in the land of them; and it ate all the fruit of the land of them. (And they ate all the plants in their land; and they ate all the fruit of their land.)

36 And he killed each the first engendered thing in the land of them (And he killed all their first-born in their land); the first fruits of all the travail of them.

37 And he led out them with silver and gold; and none was sick in the lineages of them. (And he led them out with silver and gold; and no one was weak, or feeble, in all their tribes.)

38 Egypt was glad in the going out of them; for the dread of them lay on Egyptians. (The Egyptians were glad that they left; for the Egyptians feared them.)

39 He spreaded abroad a cloud, into the covering of them (for their covering); and (a) fire, that it shined to them by night.

40 They asked, and a curlew came; and he [ful]filled them with the bread of heaven. (They asked for food, and the curlews came; and then he fulfilled them with bread, or manna, from heaven.)

41 He brake the stone, and waters flowed; floods went forth in the dry place. (He broke open a rock, and waters flowed out; yea, a river went forth there in the desert, or in the wilderness.)

42 For he was mindful of his holy word; which he had (said) to Abraham, his servant. (For he remembered his solemn promise; which he had made to his servant Abraham.)

43 And he led out his people in full out joying; and his chosen men in gladness. (And so he led out his people rejoicing; and his chosen in gladness.)

44 And he gave to them the countries of heathen men; and they had in possession the travails of (other) peoples. (And he gave them the countries of the heathen; and they had in possession what other peoples had toiled for, or had worked so hard for.)

45 That they keep his justifyings; and keep his law. (So that they would obey his statutes; and obey his laws.)
