¶ O give thanks unto the LORD, and call upon his name: tell the people what things he hath done. O let your songs be of him: praise him, and let your talking be of all his wonderous works. Give his holy name a good report, let their hearts rejoice that seek the LORD. Seek the LORD, and his strength, seek his face evermore. Remember the marvelous works that he hath done, his wonders and the judgments of his mouth. O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Iacob his chosen. He is the LORD our God, whose punishments are thorowout all the world.
¶ He is alway mindful of his covenant, and promise that he made to a thousand generations. Yea the covenant that he made with Abraham, and the oath that he sware unto Isaac. And appointed the same unto Iacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting testament. Saying: Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your heritage. When there was yet but a few of them, and the strangers therein. What time as they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another. He suffered no man to hurt them, but reproved even kings for their sakes. Touch not mine anointed, do my prophets no harm. Moreover he called for a darth upon the land, and destroyed all the provision of bread. But he had sent a man before them, even Ioseph which was sold to be a bond servant. They hurt his feet in the stocks, the iron pierced his heart. Until the time that his word came, and until the word of the LORD had tried him. Then sent the king and caused him to be delivered, the prince of the people had let him go. He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance. That he might enforme his princes after his will, and teach his Senators wisdom. Israel also came into Egypt, and Iacob was a stranger in the land of Ham. But he increased his people exceedingly, and made them stronger than their enemies.
¶ Whose heart turned, so that they hated his people, and dealt untruly with his servants. Then sent he Moses his servant, and Aaron whom he had chosen. These did his tokens among them, and wonders in the land of Ham. He sent darkness and it was dark, for they were not obedient unto his word. He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish. Their land brought forth frogs, yea even in their king's chambers. He spake the word, and there came all manner of flies and lice in all their quarters. He gave them hail stones for rain, and flames of fire in their land. He smote their vineyards and fig trees, and destroyed the trees that were in their coasts. He spake the word, and there were grasshoppers and caterpillars innumerable. These ate up all the grass in their land, and devoured the fruits of their ground. He smote all the first born in their land, even the chief of all their substance. He brought them forth with silver and gold, there was not one feeble person among their tribes. Egypt was glad of their departing: for they were afraid of them. He spread out a cloud to be a covering, and fire to give light in the night season. At their desire, there came quails, and he filled them with the bread of heaven. He opened the rock of stone, and the waters flowed out: so that rivers ran in the wilderness: For why? He remembered his holy promise which he had made to Abraham his servant. Thus he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness. And gave them the lands of the Heathen, where they took the labours of the people in possession. That they might keep his statutes, and observe his laws.
Praise the everlasting.
