Psalm 105:1-6 Good News Translation (GNT)

God and His People

105 Give thanks to the Lord,
proclaim his greatness;
    tell the nations what he has done.
Sing praise to the Lord;
    tell the wonderful things he has done.
Be glad that we belong to him;
    let all who worship him rejoice.
Go to the Lord for help;
    and worship him continually.
5-6 You descendants of Abraham, his servant;
    you descendants of Jacob, the man he chose:
remember the miracles that God performed
    and the judgments that he gave.

Psalm 105:23-26 Good News Translation (GNT)

23 Then Jacob went to Egypt
    and settled in that country.
24 The Lord gave many children to his people
    and made them stronger than their enemies.
25 He made the Egyptians hate his people
    and treat his servants with deceit.

26 Then he sent his servant Moses,
    and Aaron, whom he had chosen.

Psalm 105:23-26 New International Version (NIV)

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.

Psalm 105:23-42 The Message (MSG)

23-42 Then Israel entered Egypt,
    Jacob immigrated to the Land of Ham.
God gave his people lots of babies;
    soon their numbers alarmed their foes.
He turned the Egyptians against his people;
    they abused and cheated God’s servants.
Then he sent his servant Moses,
    and Aaron, whom he also chose.
They worked marvels in that spiritual wasteland,
    miracles in the Land of Ham.
He spoke, “Darkness!” and it turned dark—
    they couldn’t see what they were doing.
He turned all their water to blood
    so that all their fish died;
He made frogs swarm through the land,
    even into the king’s bedroom;
He gave the word and flies swarmed,
    gnats filled the air.
He substituted hail for rain,
    he stabbed their land with lightning;
He wasted their vines and fig trees,
    smashed their groves of trees to splinters;
With a word he brought in locusts,
    millions of locusts, armies of locusts;
They consumed every blade of grass in the country
    and picked the ground clean of produce;
He struck down every firstborn in the land,
    the first fruits of their virile powers.
He led Israel out, their arms filled with loot,
    and not one among his tribes even stumbled.
Egypt was glad to have them go—
    they were scared to death of them.
God spread a cloud to keep them cool through the day
    and a fire to light their way through the night;
They prayed and he brought quail,
    filled them with the bread of heaven;
He opened the rock and water poured out;
    it flowed like a river through that desert—
All because he remembered his Covenant,
    his promise to Abraham, his servant.

Psalm 105:45 The Message (MSG)

43-45 Remember this! He led his people out singing for joy;
    his chosen people marched, singing their hearts out!
He made them a gift of the country they entered,
    helped them seize the wealth of the nations
So they could do everything he told them—
    could follow his instructions to the letter.

Hallelujah!
