and rejoice in the gladness of thy people, and give thanks with thine inheritance.
6 We have sinned with our fathers : we have done amiss, and dealt wickedly.
7 Our fathers regarded not thy wonders in Egypt, neither kept they thy great goodness in remembrance : but were disobedient at the sea, even at the Red sea.
8 Nevertheless, he helped them for his Name's sake : that he might make his power to be known. :9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up : so he led them through the deep, as through a wilderness. · 10 And he saved them from the adversary's hand : and delivered them from the hand of the enemy. :11 As for those that troubled them, the waters overwhelmed them : there was not one of them left.
12 Then believed they his words : and sang praise unto him.
13 But within a while they forgat his works : and would not abide his counsel.
14 But lust came upon them in the wilderness : and they tempted God in the desert.
15 And he gave them their desire : and sent leanness withal into their soul.
16 They angered Moses also in the tents : and Aaron the saint of the Lord.
17 So the earth opened, and swallowed up Dathan : and covered the congregation of Abiram.
18 And the fire was kindled in their company : the flame burnt up the ungodly.
19 They made a calf in Horeb : and worshipped the molten image.
20 Thus they turned their glory : into the similitude of a calf that eateth hay,
21 And they forgat God their saviour : who had done so great things in Egypt;
22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham : and fearful things by the Red sea.
23 So he said, he would have destroyed them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the gap : to turn away his wrathful indignation, lest he should destroy them.
24 Yea, they thought scorn of that pleasant land : and gave no credence unto his word;
25 But murmured in their tents : and hearkened not unto the voice of the Lord.
26 Then lift he up his hand against them : to overthrow them in the wilderness;
27 To cast out their seed among the nations : and to scatter them in the lands.
28 They joined themselves unto Baal-peor • and ate the offerings of the dead.
29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their own inventions : and the plague was great among them.
30 Then stood up Phinees and prayed : and so the plague ceased.
31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness : among all posterities for evermore.
32 They angered him also at the waters of strife : so that he punished Moses for their
33 Because they provoked his spirit : so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.
34 Neither destroyed they the heathen : as the Lord commanded them;
35 But were mingled among the heathen : and learned their works.
36 Insomuch that they worshipped their idols, which turned to their own decay : yea, they offered their sons and their daughters unto devils;
37 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters : whom they offered unto the idols of Canaan; and the land was defiled with blood.
38 Thus were they stained with their own works : and went a whoring with their own inventions.
39 Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people : insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.
40 And he gave them over into the hand of the heathen : and they that hated them were lords over them.
41 Their enemies oppressed them : and had them in subjection.
42 Many a time did he deliver them : but they rebelled against him with their own inventions, and were brought down in their wickedness.
43 Nevertheless, when he saw their adversity : he heard their complaint.
44 He thought upon his covenant, and pitied them, according unto the multitude of his mercies : yea, he made all those that led them away captive to pity them.
45 Deliver us, O Lord our God, and gather us from among the heathen : that we may give thanks unto thy holy Name, and make our boast of thy praise.
46 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting, and world without end : and let all the people say, Amen.
Morning Prayer. Psalm 107. Confitemini Domino. 0 Give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gra
cious : and his mercy endureth for ever. 2 Let them give thanks whom the Lord hath redeemed : and delivered from the hand of the enemy;
3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west : from the north, and from the south.
4 They went astray in the wilderness out of the way : and found no city to dwell in ;
5 Hungry and thirsty : their soul fainted in them.
6 So they cried unto the Lord in their trouble: and he delivered them from their distress.
7 He led them forth by the right way : that they might go to the city where they dwelt. 80 that men would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness : and declare the wonders that he doeth for the children of men!
9 For he satisfieth the empty soul : and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. · 10 Such as sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death : being fast bound in misery and iron; : 11 Because they rebelled against the words of the Lord : and lightly regarded the counsel of the most Highest;
12 He also brought down their heart through heaviness : they fell down, and there was none to help them.
13 So when they cried unto the Lord in their trouble: he delivered them out of their distress.
14 For he brought them out of darkness, and out of the shadow of death : and brake their bonds in sunder.
15 O that men would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness : and declare the wonders that he doeth for the children of men!
