Psalm 106:1-6Revised Standard Version (RSV)

A Confession of Israel’s Sins

106 Praise the Lord!
O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    for his steadfast love endures for ever!
Who can utter the mighty doings of the Lord,
    or show forth all his praise?
Blessed are they who observe justice,
    who do righteousness at all times!

Remember me, O Lord, when thou showest favor to thy people;
    help me when thou deliverest them;
that I may see the prosperity of thy chosen ones,
    that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation,
    that I may glory with thy heritage.

Both we and our fathers have sinned;
    we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.

Psalm 106:37-45Revised Standard Version (RSV)

37 They sacrificed their sons
    and their daughters to the demons;
38 they poured out innocent blood,
    the blood of their sons and daughters,
whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;
    and the land was polluted with blood.
39 Thus they became unclean by their acts,
    and played the harlot in their doings.

40 Then the anger of the Lord was kindled against his people,
    and he abhorred his heritage;
41 he gave them into the hand of the nations,
    so that those who hated them ruled over them.
42 Their enemies oppressed them,
    and they were brought into subjection under their power.
43 Many times he delivered them,
    but they were rebellious in their purposes,
    and were brought low through their iniquity.
44 Nevertheless he regarded their distress,
    when he heard their cry.
45 He remembered for their sake his covenant,
    and relented according to the abundance of his steadfast love.
