Psalms 106

Great(i) 1 Prayse the Lorde. O geue thancke vnto the Lorde, for he is gracyous, and his mercy endureth for euer. 2 Who can expresse the noble actes of the Lorde or shewe forth all hys prayse? 3 Blessed are they that allwaye kepe iudgement, and do ryghteousnes. 4 Remembre me, O Lorde, accordynge to the fauoure that thou bearest vnto thy people: O vyset me wyth thy saluacyon. 5 That I maye se the felicite of thy chosen, and reioyse in the gladnesse of thy people, & geue thankes wyth thyne enherytaunce. 6 We haue synned wyth oure fathers, we haue done amysse, and dealt wyckedly. 7 Oure fathers regarded not thy wonders in Egypte, nether kepte they thy greate goodnesse in remembraunce: but were disobedient at the see, euen at the reed see. 8 Neuertheles, he helped them for hys names sake, that he myght make hys power to be knowne. 9 He rebuked the reed see also, & it was dryed vp: so he ledd them thorow the depe as thorow a wyldernesse. 10 And he saued them from the aduersaries hande, and delyuered them from the hande of the enemye. 11 As for those that troubled them, the waters ouerwhelmed them, there was not one of them left. 12 Then beleued they hys wordes, and sange prayse vnto hym. 13 But wythin a whyle they forgat hys worckes, & wolde not abyde hys councell. 14 But lust came vpon them in the wildernesse, and they tempted God in the deserte. 15 And he gaue them their desyre, and sent leanesse withall in to their soule. 16 They angred Moses also in the tentes, and Aaron the sayncte of the Lorde. 17 So the earth opened, and swalowed vp Dathan, & couered the congregacion of Abiram. 18 And the fyre was kyndled in their company, the flame brent vp the vngodly. 19 They made a calfe in Horeb, and worshipped the molten ymage. 20 Thus they turned their glory into the similitude of a calfe, that eateth haye. 21 And they forgat God their Sauioure, which had done so greate thynges in Egipte. 22 Wonderous worckes in the lande of Ham, and fearfull thinges by the reed see. 23 So he sayd he wolde haue destroyed them, had not Moses his chosen stande before hym in that gappe: to turne awaye his wrathful indignacion, lest he shulde destroye them. 24 Yee they thought scorne of that pleasaunt lande, and gaue no credence vnto his word. 25 But murmured in their tentes, and herkened not vnto the voyce of the Lorde. 26 Then lyft he vp his hand agaynst them, to ouerthrowe them in the wildernes. 27 To cast out their sede amonge the nacions, and to scater them in the landes. 28 They ioyned them selues vnto Baal Peor, and eate the offeringes of the deed. 29 Thus they prouoked him vnto anger with their awne inuencions and the plage was greate amonge them. 30 Then stode vp Phinehes and prayed, & so the plage ceased. 31 And that was counted vnto him for righteousnesse, amonge all posterites for euermore. 32 They angered him also at the waters of stryfe, so that he punyshed Moses for their sakes. 33 Because they prouoked his sprete, so that he spake vnaduisedly with his lyppes. 34 Nether destroyed they the Heathen, as the Lorde commaunded them. 35 But were myngled among the Heathen, and lerned their worckes. 36 In so moch that they worshipped their ydoles, which turned to their awne decaye. 37 Yee they offred their sonnes and their daughters vnto deuel 38 And shed innocent bloude, euen the bloude of their sonnes & of their daughters, whom they offred vnto the ydoles of Canaan, and the lande was defyled with bloud. 39 Thus were they stayned with their awne worckes, and went a whorynge wyth their awne inuencions. 40 Therfore was the wrath of the Lorde kynled agaynst hys people, in so moch that he abhorred hys awne enheritaunce. 41 And he gaue them ouer into the hande of the Heathen, and they that hated them, were lordes ouer them. 42 Their enemyes oppressed them, and had them in subieccion. 43 Many a tyme did he delyuer them, but they rebelled agaynst him with their awne inuencions, & were brought downe in their wyckednesse. 44 Neuerthelesse, when he sawe their aduersyte, he herde their complaynte. 45 He thought vpon his couenaunt, & pytied them, accordyng vnto the multitude of his mercyes. 46 Yee he made all those that had ledd them awaye captiue, to pytie them. 47 Delyuer vs (O Lorde oure God) and gather vs from amonge the Heathen: that we maye geue thanckes to thy holy name, & make oure boast of thy prayse. 48 Blessed be the Lorde God of Israel from euerlastyng and worlde without ende, & let all people saye: Amen, Amen. Prayse the Lord
