Tree of Life Version
Tell His Wonders for Israel
1 Praise Adonai, call upon His Name.
Make known His deeds among the peoples.
2 Sing to Him, sing praises to Him—
tell about all His wonders!
3 Glory in His holy Name.
Let the heart of those who seek Adonai rejoice.
4 Seek Adonai and His strength,
seek His face always.
5 Remember His wonders that He has done,
His miracles and the judgments of His mouth,
6 O seed of Abraham, His servant,
O children of Jacob, His chosen ones.
7 He is Adonai our God.
His judgments are in all the earth.
8 He remembers His covenant forever—
the word He commanded for a thousand generations—
9 which He made with Abraham,
and swore to Isaac,
10 and confirmed to Jacob as a decree,
to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
11 saying, “To you I give the land of Canaan,
the portion of your inheritance.”
12 When they were but few in number,
few indeed, and foreigners in it,[a]
13 wandering from nation to nation,
from one kingdom to another people,
14 He allowed no one to oppress them—
for their sake He rebuked kings:
15 “Touch not My anointed ones,
and do My prophets no harm.”
16 He called down a famine on the land.
He broke the whole supply of bread.
17 He sent a man before them—
Joseph, sold as a slave.
18 They hurt His feet with shackles,
he was put in irons—
19 till the time that his word came true—
the word of Adonai proved him true!
20 The king sent and released him.
The ruler of the peoples set him free.
21 He made him lord of his house,
ruler over all his possessions,
22 to discipline his princes at his will,
and teach his elders wisdom.
23 Then Israel came into Egypt,
Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
24 He made His people very fruitful,
and made them more numerous than their foes.
25 He turned their hearts to hate His people,
to deal shrewdly with His servants.
26 He sent Moses His servant,
and Aaron, whom He had chosen.
27 They performed His signs among them
—miracles in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness, and it was dark,
so they did not rebel against His words.
29 He turned their waters into blood,
causing their fish to die.
30 Their land swarmed with frogs,
even in their royal chambers.
31 He spoke, and a swarm of gnats came
within all their borders.
32 He gave them a rain of hail,
flames of fire throughout their land.
33 He struck their vines and their fig trees
and shattered the trees of their country.
34 He spoke, and the locust came
—young locusts without number—
35 to eat up every green thing in their land
and eat up the fruit of their ground.
36 Then He struck all the firstborn in their land,
the firstfruits of all their vigor.
37 Then He brought them out with silver and gold,
and no one among His tribes faltered.
38 Egypt was glad when they left—
for dread of them had fallen on them.
39 He spread a cloud as a covering
and fire to give light at night.
40 They asked, and He brought quail,
and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.[b]
41 He opened a rock, and waters gushed out,
flowed as a river in dry places.
42 For He remembered His holy word
to Abraham His servant.
43 So He brought forth His people with joy,
His chosen ones with singing.
44 He gave them the lands of the nations,
so they inherited the labor of the peoples
45 so that they might keep His statutes
and observe His laws.
