1 An exhortation to praise God, and to seeke out his workes. 7 The story of Gods prouidence ouer Abraham, 16 Ouer Ioseph, 23 Ouer Iacob in Egypt, 26 Ouer Moses deliuering the Israelites, 37 Ouer the Israelites brought out of Egypt, fed in the wildernesse, and planted in Canaan.
O giue thankes vnto the Lord, call vpon his name: make knowen his deeds among the people.1
Sing vnto him; sing Psalmes vnto him: talke yee of all his wondrous workes.
Glory yee in his holy name: let the heart of them reioyce, that seeke the Lord.
Seeke the Lord, and his strength: seeke his face euermore.
Remember his maruellous workes, that hee hath done: his wonders, and the iudgements of his mouth,
O yee seede of Abraham his seruant: yee children of Iacob his chosen.
He is the Lord our God: his iudgements are in all the earth.
He hath remembred his couenant for euer: the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
Which couenant he made with Abraham, and his oath vnto Isaac:9
And confirmed the same vnto Iacob for a law: and to Israel for an euerlasting couenant:
Saying, Unto thee will I giue the land of Canaan: the lot of your inheritance.11
When they were but a few men in number: yea very few, & strangers in it.
When they went from one nation to another: from one kingdome to another people.
He suffred no man to doe them wrong: yea he reproued kings for their sakes:
Saying, Touch not mine anointed; and doe my Prophets no harme.
Moreouer hee called for a famine vpon the land: he brake the whole staffe of bread.
Hee sent a man before them: euen Ioseph, who was sold for a seruant.17
Whose feete they hurt with fetters: he was layd in iron.18
Untill the time that his word came: the word of the Lord tried him.
The king sent and loosed him: euen the ruler of the people, and let him goe free.20
Hee made him lord of his house: and ruler of all his substance:21
To binde his princes at his pleasure: and teach his Senatours wisedome.
Israel also came into Egypt: and Iacob soiourned in the land of Ham.23
And hee increased his people greatly: and made them stronger then their enemies.
He turned their heart to hate his people: to deale subtilly with his seruants.25
Hee sent Moses his seruant: and Aaron whom he had chosen.26
They shewed his signes among them: and wonders in the land of Ham.27
Hee sent darknesse, and made it darke: and they rebelled not against his word.28
Hee turned their waters into blood: and slew their fish.29
The land brought foorth frogs in abundance: in the chambers of their kings.30
He spake, and there came diuers sorts of flies: and lice in all their coasts.31
Hee gaue them haile for raine: and flaming fire in their laud.32
Hee smote their Uines also, and their figge trees: and brake the trees of their coastes.
He spake, and the locusts came: and catterpillers, and that without number,34
And did eate vp all the herbes in their land: and deuoured the fruite of their ground.
Hee smote also all the first borne in their land: the chiefe of all their strength.36
Hee brought them foorth also with siluer and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.37
Egypt was glad when they departed: for the feare of them fell vpon them.38
He spread a cloud for a couering: and fire to giue light in the night.39
The people asked, and he brought quailes: and satisfied them with the bread of heauen.40
He opened the rocke, and the waters gushed out: they ranne in the dry places like a riuer.41
For he remembred his holy promise: and Abraham his seruant.
And he brought forth his people with ioy: and his chosen with gladnesse:43
And gaue them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people:44
That they might obserue his statutes, and keepe his Lawes, Praise ye the Lord.
