Psalm 106-110 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) Psalm 106 1 Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever! 2 Who can put into words and tell the mighty deeds of the Lord? Or who can show forth all the praise [that is due Him]? 3 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are those who observe justice [treating others fairly] and who do right and are in right standing with God at all times. 4 [Earnestly] remember me, O Lord, when You favor Your people! O visit me also when You deliver them, and grant me Your salvation!— 5 That I may see and share the welfare of Your chosen ones, that I may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation, that I may glory with Your heritage. 6 We have sinned, as did also our fathers; we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly. 7 Our fathers in Egypt understood not nor appreciated Your miracles; they did not [earnestly] remember the multitude of Your mercies nor imprint Your loving-kindness [on their hearts], but they were rebellious and provoked the Lord at the sea, even at the Red Sea. 8 Nevertheless He saved them for His name’s sake [to prove the righteousness of the divine character], that He might make His mighty power known. 9 He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it dried up; so He led them through the depths as through a pastureland. 10 And He saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the [Egyptian] enemy. 11 And the waters covered their adversaries; not one of them was left. 12 Then [Israel] believed His words [trusting in, relying on them]; they sang His praise. 13 But they hastily forgot His works; they did not [earnestly] wait for His plans [to develop] regarding them, 14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness and tempted and tried to restrain God [with their insistent desires] in the desert. 15 And He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their souls and [thinned their numbers by] disease and death. 16 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron [the high priest], the holy one of the Lord. 17 Therefore the earth opened and swallowed up Dathan and closed over the company of Abiram. 18 And a fire broke out in their company; the flame burned up the wicked. 19 They made a calf in Horeb and worshiped a molten image. 20 Thus they exchanged Him Who was their Glory for the image of an ox that eats grass [they traded their Honor for the image of a calf]! 21 They forgot God their Savior, Who had done such great things in Egypt, 22 Wonders and miracles in the land of Ham, dreadful and awesome things at the Red Sea. 23 Therefore He said He would destroy them. [And He would have done so] had not Moses, His chosen one, stepped into the breach before Him to turn away His threatening wrath. 24 Then they spurned and despised the pleasant and desirable land [Canaan]; they believed not His word [neither trusting in, relying on, nor holding to it]; 25 But they murmured in their tents and hearkened not to the voice of the Lord. 26 Therefore He lifted up His hand [as if taking an oath] against them, that He would cause them to fall in the wilderness, 27 Cast out their descendants among the nations, and scatter them in the lands [of the earth]. 28 They joined themselves also to the [idol] Baal of Peor and ate sacrifices [offered] to the lifeless [gods]. 29 Thus they provoked the Lord to anger with their practices, and a plague broke out among them. 30 Then stood up Phinehas [the priest] and executed judgment, and so the plague was stayed. 31 And that was credited to him for righteousness (right doing and right standing with God) to all generations forever. 32 They angered the Lord also at the waters of Meribah, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes; 33 For they provoked [Moses’] spirit, so that he spoke unadvisedly with his lips. 34 They did not destroy the [heathen] nations as the Lord commanded them, 35 But mingled themselves with the [idolatrous] nations and learned their ways and works 36 And served their idols, which were a snare to them. 37 Yes, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons 38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with their blood. 39 Thus were they defiled by their own works, and they played the harlot and practiced idolatry with their own deeds [of idolatrous rites]. 40 Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against His people, insomuch that He abhorred and rejected His own heritage. 41 And He gave them into the hands of the [heathen] nations, and they that hated them ruled over them. 42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under the hand of their foes. 43 Many times did [God] deliver them, but they were rebellious in their counsel and sank low through their iniquity. 44 Nevertheless He regarded their distress when He heard their cry; 45 And He [earnestly] remembered for their sake His covenant and relented their sentence of evil [comforting and easing Himself] according to the abundance of His mercy and loving-kindness [when they cried out to Him]. 46 He also caused [Israel] to find sympathy among those who had carried them away captive. 47 Deliver us, O Lord our God, and gather us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to Your holy name and glory in praising You. 48 Blessed (affectionately and gratefully praised) be the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! And let all the people say, Amen! Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) Book Five Psalm 107 1 O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever! 2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has delivered from the hand of the adversary, 3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the [Red] Sea in the south. 4 Some wandered in the wilderness in a solitary desert track; they found no city for habitation. 5 Hungry and thirsty, they fainted; their lives were near to being extinguished. 6 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses. 7 He led them forth by the straight and right way, that they might go to a city where they could establish their homes. 8 Oh, that men would praise [and confess to] the Lord for His goodness and loving-kindness and His wonderful works to the children of men! 9 For He satisfies the longing soul and fills the hungry soul with good. 10 Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and in irons, 11 Because they had rebelled against the words of God and spurned the counsel of the Most High. 12 Therefore He bowed down their hearts with hard labor; they stumbled and fell down, and there was none to help. 13 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He saved them out of their distresses. 14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death and broke apart the bonds that held them. 15 Oh, that men would praise [and confess to] the Lord for His goodness and loving-kindness and His wonderful works to the children of men! 16 For He has broken the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron apart. 17 Some are fools [made ill] because of the way of their transgressions and are afflicted because of their iniquities. 18 They loathe every kind of food, and they draw near to the gates of death. 19 Then they cry to the Lord in their trouble, and He delivers them out of their distresses. 20 He sends forth His word and heals them and rescues them from the pit and destruction. 21 Oh, that men would praise [and confess to] the Lord for His goodness and loving-kindness and His wonderful works to the children of men! 22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving and rehearse His deeds with shouts of joy and singing! 23 Some go down to the sea and travel over it in ships to do business in great waters; 24 These see the works of the Lord and His wonders in the deep. 25 For He commands and raises up the stormy wind, which lifts up the waves of the sea. 26 [Those aboard] mount up to the heavens, they go down again to the deeps; their courage melts away because of their plight. 27 They reel to and fro and stagger like a drunken man and are at their wits’ end [all their wisdom has come to nothing]. 28 Then they cry to the Lord in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. 29 He hushes the storm to a calm and to a gentle whisper, so that the waves of the sea are still. 30 Then the men are glad because of the calm, and He brings them to their desired haven. 31 Oh, that men would praise [and confess to] the Lord for His goodness and loving-kindness and His wonderful works to the children of men! 32 Let them exalt Him also in the congregation of the people and praise Him in the company of the elders. 33 He turns rivers into a wilderness, water springs into a thirsty ground, 34 A fruitful land into a barren, salt waste, because of the wickedness of those who dwell in it. 35 He turns a wilderness into a pool of water and a dry ground into water springs; 36 And there He makes the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation, 37 And sow fields, and plant vineyards which yield fruits of increase. 38 He blesses them also, so that they are multiplied greatly, and allows not their cattle to decrease. 39 When they are diminished and bowed down through oppression, trouble, and sorrow, 40 He pours contempt upon princes and causes them to wander in waste places where there is no road. 41 Yet He raises the poor and needy from affliction and makes their families like a flock. 42 The upright shall see it and be glad, but all iniquity shall shut its mouth. 43 Whoso is wise [if there be any truly wise] will observe and heed these things; and they will diligently consider the mercy and loving-kindness of the Lord. Psalm 108 A song. A Psalm of David. 1 O God, my heart is fixed (steadfast, in the confidence of faith); I will sing, yes, I will sing praises, even with my glory [all the faculties and powers of one created in Your image]! 2 Awake, harp and lyre; I myself will wake very early—I will waken the dawn! 3 I will praise and give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; and I will sing praises unto You among the nations. 4 For Your mercy and loving-kindness are great and high as the heavens! Your truth and faithfulness reach to the skies! 5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, and let Your glory be over all the earth. 6 That Your beloved [followers] may be delivered, save with Your right hand and answer us! [or me]! 7 God has promised in His holiness [regarding the establishment of David’s dynasty]: I will rejoice, I will distribute [Canaan among My people], dividing Shechem and [the western region and allotting the eastern region which contains] the Valley of Succoth. 8 Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine; Ephraim also is My stronghold and the defense of My head; Judah is My scepter and lawgiver. 9 Moab is My washbasin; upon Edom [My slave] My shoe I cast [to be cleaned]; over Philistia I shout [in triumph]. 10 Who will bring me [David] into the strong, fortified city [of Petra]? Who will lead me into Edom? 11 Have You not cast us off, O God? And will You not go forth, O God, with our armies? 12 Give us help against the adversary, for vain is the help of man. 13 Through and with God we shall do valiantly, for He it is Who shall tread down our adversaries. Psalm 109 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. 1 O God of my praise! Keep not silence, 2 For the mouths of the wicked and the mouth of deceit are opened against me; they have spoken to me and against me with lying tongues. 3 They have compassed me about also with words of hatred and have fought against me without a cause. 4 In return for my love they are my adversaries, but I resort to prayer. 5 And they have rewarded and laid upon me evil for good, and hatred for my love. 6 Set a wicked man over him [as a judge], and let [a malicious] accuser stand at his right hand. 7 When [the wicked] is judged, let him be condemned, and let his prayer [for leniency] be turned into a sin. 8 Let his days be few; and let another take his office and charge. 9 Let his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. 10 Let his children be continual vagabonds [as was Cain] and beg; let them seek their bread and be driven far from their ruined homes. 11 Let the creditor and extortioner seize all that he has; and let strangers (barbarians and foreigners) plunder the fruits of his labor. 12 Let there be none to extend or continue mercy and kindness to him, neither let there be any to have pity on his fatherless children. 13 Let his posterity be cut off, and in the generation following let their names be blotted out. 14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered by the Lord; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out. 15 Let them be before the Lord continually, that He may cut off the memory of them from the earth!— 16 Because the man did not [earnestly] remember to show mercy, but pursued and persecuted the poor and needy man, and the broken in heart [he was ready] to slay. 17 Yes, he loved cursing, and it came [back] upon him; he delighted not in blessing, and it was far from him. 18 He clothed himself also with cursing as with his garment, and it seeped into his inward [life] like water, and like oil into his bones. 19 Let it be to him as the raiment with which he covers himself and as the girdle with which he is girded continually. 20 Let this be the reward of my adversaries from the Lord, and of those who speak evil against my life. 21 But You deal with me and act for me, O God the Lord, for Your name’s sake; because Your mercy and loving-kindness are good, O deliver me. 22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded and stricken within me. 23 I am gone like the shadow when it lengthens and declines; I toss up and down and am shaken off as the locust. 24 My knees are weak and totter from fasting; and my body is gaunt and has no fatness. 25 I have become also a reproach and a taunt to others; when they see me, they shake their heads. 26 Help me, O Lord my God; O save me according to Your mercy and loving-kindness!— 27 That they may know that this is Your hand, that You, Lord, have done it. 28 Let them curse, but do You bless. When adversaries arise, let them be put to shame, but let Your servant rejoice. 29 Let my adversaries be clothed with shame and dishonor, and let them cover themselves with their own disgrace and confusion as with a robe. 30 I will give great praise and thanks to the Lord with my mouth; yes, and I will praise Him among the multitude. 31 For He will stand at the right hand of the poor and needy, to save him from those who condemn his life. Psalm 110 A Psalm of David. 1 The Lord (God) says to my Lord (the Messiah), Sit at My right hand, until I make Your adversaries Your footstool. 2 The Lord will send forth from Zion the scepter of Your strength; rule, then, in the midst of Your foes. 3 Your people will offer themselves willingly in the day of Your power, in the beauty of holiness and in holy array out of the womb of the morning; to You [will spring forth] Your young men, who are as the dew. 4 The Lord has sworn and will not revoke or change it: You are a priest forever, after the manner and order of Melchizedek. 5 The Lord at Your right hand will shatter kings in the day of His indignation. 6 He will execute judgment [in overwhelming punishment] upon the nations; He will fill the valleys with the dead bodies, He will crush the [chief] heads over lands many and far extended. 7 He will drink of the brook by the way; therefore will He lift up His head [triumphantly].
