Psalm 105 God remembered God’s holy promise

1 O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known his deeds among the peoples. 

2 Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wonderful works. 

3 Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. 

4 Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually. 

37 Then he brought Israel out with silver and gold, and there was no one among their tribes who stumbled.

38 Egypt was glad when they departed, for dread of them had fallen upon it. 39 He spread a cloud for a covering, and fire to give light by night.

40 They asked, and he brought quails, and gave them food from heaven in abundance.

41 He opened the rock, and water gushed out; it flowed through the desert like a river.

42 For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham, his servant.

43 So he brought his people out with joy, his chosen ones with singing.

44 He gave them the lands of the nations, and they took possession of the wealth of the peoples,

45 that they might keep his statutes and observe his laws. Praise the Lord!
