Praise the LORD! O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures for ever!
Who can utter the mighty doings of the LORD, or show forth all his praise?
Blessed are they who observe justice, who do righteousness at all times!
Remember me, O LORD, when thou showest favor to thy people; help me when thou deliverest them;
that I may see the prosperity of thy chosen ones, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thy heritage.
Both we and our fathers have sinned; we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.
Our fathers, when they were in Egypt, did not consider thy wonderful works; they did not remember the abundance of thy steadfast love, but rebelled against the Most High at the Red Sea.
Yet he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make known his mighty power.
He rebuked the Red Sea, and it became dry; and he led them through the deep as through a desert.
So he saved them from the hand of the foe, and delivered them from the power of the enemy.
And the waters covered their adversaries; not one of them was left.
Then they believed his words; they sang his praise.
But they soon forgot his works; they did not wait for his counsel.
But they had a wanton craving in the wilderness, and put God to the test in the desert;
he gave them what they asked, but sent a wasting disease among them.
When men in the camp were jealous of Moses and Aaron, the holy one of the LORD,
the earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abi'ram.
Fire also broke out in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.
