The Psalter According to the Seventy

Psalm 104


O give thanks unto the Lord and call upon His name; declare among the nations His works.
2 Sing unto Him and chant unto Him; tell forth all His wonders.
3 Glory in His holy name; let the heart of them be glad that seek the Lord.
4 Seek ye the Lord, and be strengthened; seek ye His face at all times.
5 Remember His wonders which He wrought, His marvels, and the judgements of His mouth,
6 Ye that are the seed of Abraham, His servants, ye sons of Jacob, His chosen.
7 He is the Lord our God, in all the earth are His judgements.
8 He hath remembered His covenant unto eternity, the word which He commanded unto a thousand generations,
9 Which He made to Abraham, and His oath to Isaac.
10 And He established it to Jacob for an ordinance, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
11 Saying: Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the portion of your inheritance.
12 When they were few in number, very few and sojourners therein,
13 And they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people,
14 He allowed no man to wrong them; and He reproved kings for their sake,
15 Saying: Touch not Mine anointed ones, and to My prophets do no evil.
16 And He called a famine upon the land, He brake all the staff of bread.
17 He sent a man before them, Joseph was sold for a slave.
18 They humbled his feet with fetters, his life was spent in irons, until his word came to pass.
19 The oracle of the Lord proved him; the king sent and loosed him, even the ruler of the people, and released him.
20 He made him lord of his house, and ruler over all his substance,
21 To instruct his princes as himself, and to teach his elders wisdom.
22 And Israel went into Egypt, and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
23 And He increased His people greatly, and made them stronger than their enemies.
24 He turned their heart to hate His people, to deal craftily with His servants.
25 He sent forth Moses His servant, Aaron whom He had chosen for Himself.
26 He set in them the words of His signs and of His marvels in the land of Ham.
27 He sent forth darkness and made it dark, for they were embittered against His words.
28 He turned their waters into blood, and He slew their fish.
29 Their land teemed with frogs, even unto the secret chambers of their kings.
30 He spake, and the dog-fly came, and gnats in all their borders.
31 He gave them hail for rain, flaming fire in their land.
32 And He smote their vines and their fig trees, and brake every tree of their border.
33 He spake, and the locust came, and the caterpillar, and that without number.
34 And devoured all the grass in their land, and devoured all the fruit of their land.
35 And He smote every firstborn of their land, the firstlings of all their labour.
36 And He led them out with silver and gold, and there was not among their tribes one man that was feeble.
37 Egypt was glad when they departed, for fear of them had fallen upon them.
38 He spread out a cloud for a shelter to them, and a fire to give them light by night.
39 They made request and the quail came, and with the bread of heaven He filled them.
40 He clave the rock and the waters flowed, in waterless places rivers ran.
41 For He remembered His holy word which He spake unto Abraham His servant.
42 And He led forth His people with rejoicing, and His chosen ones with gladness.
43 And He gave unto them the lands of the heathen, and the labours of peoples they inherited,
44 That they might keep His statutes and might seek after his law.
