Psalms 106:25-48

ISV(i) 25 They murmured in their tents, and didn't listen to the voice of the LORD. 26 So he swore an oath concerning them {— } that he would cause them to die in the wilderness, 27 to cause their children to perish among the nations and be scattered among many lands. 28 For they adopted the worship of Baal Peor and ate sacrifices offered to the dead. 29 They had provoked anger by their deeds, so that a plague broke out against them. 30 But Phinehas intervened and prayed so that the plague was restrained. 31 And it was credited to him as a righteous act, from generation to generation {— } to eternity. 32 They provoked wrath at the waters of Meribah, and Moses suffered on account of them. 33 For they rebelled against him, so that he spoke thoughtlessly with his lips. 34 They never destroy the people, as the LORD had commanded them. 35 Instead, they mingled among the nations and learned their ways. 36 They worshipped their idols, and this became a trap for them. 37 They sacrificed their sons and daughters to demons. 38 They shed innocent blood {— } the blood of their sons and daughters {— } whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, thereby polluting the land with blood. 39 Therefore, they became unclean because of what they did; they have acted like whores by their evil deeds. 40 The LORD's anger burned against his people, so that he despised his own inheritance. 41 He turned them over to domination by nations where those who hated them ruled over them. 42 Their enemies oppressed them, so that they were humiliated by their power. 43 He delivered them many times, but they demonstrated rebellion by their evil plans; therefore they sunk deep in their sins. 44 Yet when he saw their distress and heard their cries for help, 45 he remembered his covenant with them, and so relented according to the greatness of his gracious love. 46 He caused all their captors to show compassion toward them. 47 Deliver us, LORD our God, gather us from among the nations so we may praise your holy name and rejoice in praising you. 48 Blessed are you, LORD God of Israel, from eternity to eternity; Let all the people say, "Amen!" Hallelujah!
