Give thanks to YHWH! Call upon His Name, Make known His deeds among the peoples.
Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; Speak of all His wonders.
Make your boast in His set-apart Name; Let the hearts rejoice of those seeking YHWH.
Seek YHWH and His strength; Seek His face always.
Remember His wonders which He has done, His miracles, and the right-rulings of His mouth,
O seed of Abraham His servant, Children of Ya'aqob, His chosen ones!
He is YHWH our Elohim; His right-rulings are in all the earth.
He has remembered His covenant forever, The Word He commanded, for a thousand generations,
The covenant He made with Abraham, And His oath to Yitshaq,
And established it to Ya'aqob for a law, To Yisra'el - an everlasting covenant,
Saying, 'To you I give the land of Kena'an, The portion of your inheritance.'
When they were few in number, Few indeed, and sojourners in it,
And they went about from one nation to another, From one reign to another people,
He allowed no one to oppress them, And He reproved sovereigns for their sakes,
Saying, 'Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no evil.'
And He called for a scarcity of food in the land; He cut off all the supply of bread.
He sent ahead of them a man, Yoseph, sold as a slave.
They afflicted his feet with shackles, His neck was put in irons.
Until the time that His Word came, The Word of YHWH tried him.
The sovereign sent and released him, The ruler of the people let him loose.
He made him master of his house, And ruler over all his possessions,
To bind his chiefs at his pleasure, And to teach his elders wisdom.
Then Yisra'el came to Mitsrayim, And Ya'aqob sojourned in the land of Ham.
And He increased His people greatly, And made them stronger than their enemies.
He turned their heart to hate His people, To conspire against His servants.
He sent Mosheh His servant, Aharon whom He had chosen.
They set among them the matters of His signs, And wonders in the land of Ham.
He sent darkness, and made it dark; And they did not rebel against His word.
He turned their waters into blood, And killed their fish.
Their land teemed with frogs, In the rooms of their sovereigns.
He spoke, and swarms of flies came, Gnats in all their borders.
He gave them hail for rain, A flaming fire in their land.
And He smote their vines and their fig trees, And broke the trees of their borders.
He spoke, and locusts came, And larvae, innumerable,
And they devoured all the plants in their land, And they devoured the fruit of their ground.
Then He smote all the first-born in their land, The first-fruit of all their strength,
And brought them out with silver and gold, And among His tribes no one faltered.
Mitsrayim was glad when they left, For the fear of them had fallen upon them.
He spread a cloud for a covering, And fire to give light in the night.
They asked, and He brought quail, And satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
He opened the rock, and water gushed out; It ran in the dry places, a river.
For He remembered His set-apart word, To Abraham His servant.
So He brought out His people with joy, His chosen ones with singing.
And He gave to them the lands of the gentiles, And they inherited the labour of peoples,
In order that they might guard His laws, And watch over His Torot. Praise Yah!
