Psalms 106:25-48

DouayRheims(i) 25 And they murmured in their tents: they hearkened not to the voice of the Lord. 26 And he lifted up his hand over them: to overthrow them in the desert; 27 And to cast down their seed among the nations, and to scatter them in the countries. 28 They also were initiated to Beelphegor: and ate the sacrifices of the dead. 29 And they provoked him with their inventions: and destruction was multiplied among them. 30 Then Phinees stood up, and pacified him: and the slaughter ceased. 31 And it was reputed to him unto justice, to generation and generation for evermore. 32 They provoked him also at the waters of contradiction: and Moses was afflicted for their sakes: 33 Because they exasperated his spirit. And he distinguished with his lips. 34 They did not destroy the nations of which the Lord spoke unto them. 35 And they were mingled among the heathens, and learned their works: 36 And served their idols, and it became a stumblingblock to them. 37 And they sacrificed their sons, and their daughters to devils. 38 And they shed innocent blood: the blood of their sons and of their daughters which they sacrificed to the idols of Chanaan. And the land was polluted with blood, 39 And was defiled with their works: and they went aside after their own inventions. 40 And the Lord was exceedingly angry with his people: and he abhorred his inheritance. 41 And he delivered them into the hands of the nations: and they that hated them had dominion over them. 42 And their enemies afflicted them: and they were humbled under their hands: 43 Many times did he deliver them. But they provoked him with their counsel: and they were brought low by their iniquities. 44 And he saw when they were in tribulation: and he heard their prayer. 45 And he was mindful of his covenant: and repented according to the multitude of his mercies. 46 And he gave them unto mercies, in the sight of all those that had made them captives. 47 Save us, O Lord, our God: and gather us from among the nations: That we may give thanks to thy holy name, and may glory in thy praise. 48 Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say: So be it, so be it.
