Psalms 106:25-48

CLV(i) 25 And they murmured in their tents; They did not hearken to the voice of Yahweh. 26 So He lifted His hand in swearing to them To cast them down in the wilderness, 27 And to scatter their seed among the nations, And to toss them away throughout the countries." 28 Yet they paired themselves with Baal-peor, And they ate sacrifices offered to dead idols." 29 They provoked Him to vexation with their actions, So that a stroke breached forth among them." 30 But Phinehas stood up and mediated, And the stroke was restrained." 31 This was reckoned to him for righteousness For generation after generation for the eon. 32 They prompted wrath at the waters of Meribah, And it was evil for Moses for their sake" 33 Because they provoked his spirit, And he talked rashly with his lips." 34 They did not exterminate the peoples As Yahweh had commanded them. 35 They mixed with the nations, And they learned their customs." 36 They served their fetishes, And these came to be a trap for them." 37 They sacrificed their sons And their daughters to demons; 38 So they shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and their daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the fetishes of Canaan, And the land was polluted with bloodshed." 39 Thus they defiled themselves by their deeds, And they prostituted themselves by their actions." 40 So the anger of Yahweh grew hot against His people, And He abhorred His allotment." 41 He gave them into the hand of the nations So that those hating them ruled among them. 42 Their enemies oppressed them, And they were made to submit under their hand." 43 Many times He rescued them, But they were rebellious in their counsel, And they were reduced lower in their depravity." 44 Yet He saw their distress, On His hearing of their appeal, 45 And, for them, He remembered His covenant, So that He was merciful according to His many benignities." 46 He gave them over to compassions Before all those holding them captive. 47 Save us, O Yahweh our Elohim, And convene us from the nations, To acclaim Your holy Name, To triumph in Your praise." 48 Blessed be Yahweh, Elohim of Israel, From the eon and until the eon. Then all the people will say, Amen. Praise Yah."
