Israel's Rebelliousness and the LORD'S Deliverances.

Psalm 106:1   Praise the LORD! Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Psalm 106:2   Who can speak of the mighty deeds of the LORD, Or can show forth all His praise?
Psalm 106:3   How blessed are those who keep justice, Who practice righteousness at all times!
Psalm 106:4   Remember me, O LORD, in Your favor toward Your people; Visit me with Your salvation,
Psalm 106:5   That I may see the prosperity of Your chosen ones, That I may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation, That I may glory with Your inheritance.
Psalm 106:6   We have sinned like our fathers, We have committed iniquity, we have behaved wickedly.
Psalm 106:7   Our fathers in Egypt did not understand Your wonders; They did not remember Your abundant kindnesses, But rebelled by the sea, at the Red Sea.
Psalm 106:8   Nevertheless He saved them for the sake of His name, That He might make His power known.
Psalm 106:9   Thus He rebuked the Red Sea and it dried up, And He led them through the deeps, as through the wilderness.
Psalm 106:10   So He saved them from the hand of the one who hated them, And redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
Psalm 106:11   The waters covered their adversaries; Not one of them was left.
Psalm 106:12   Then they believed His words; They sang His praise.
Psalm 106:13   They quickly forgot His works; They did not wait for His counsel,
Psalm 106:14   But craved intensely in the wilderness, And tempted God in the desert.
Psalm 106:15   So He gave them their request, But sent a wasting disease among them.
Psalm 106:16   When they became envious of Moses in the camp, And of Aaron, the holy one of the LORD,
Psalm 106:17   The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, And engulfed the company of Abiram.

Psalm 106:20   Thus they exchanged their glory For the image of an ox that eats grass.
Psalm 106:21   They forgot God their Savior, Who had done great things in Egypt,
Psalm 106:22   Wonders in the land of Ham And awesome things by the Red Sea.
Psalm 106:23   Therefore He said that He would destroy them, Had not Moses His chosen one stood in the breach before Him, To turn away His wrath from destroying them.
Psalm 106:24   Then they despised the pleasant land; They did not believe in His word,
Psalm 106:25   But grumbled in their tents; They did not listen to the voice of the LORD.
Psalm 106:26   Therefore He swore to them That He would cast them down in the wilderness,
Psalm 106:27   And that He would cast their seed among the nations And scatter them in the lands.
Psalm 106:28   They joined themselves also to Baal-peor, And ate sacrifices offered to the dead.

Psalm 106:31   And it was reckoned to him for righteousness, To all generations forever.
Psalm 106:32   They also provoked Him to wrath at the waters of Meribah, So that it went hard with Moses on their account;
Psalm 106:33   Because they were rebellious against His Spirit, He spoke rashly with his lips.
Psalm 106:34   They did not destroy the peoples, As the LORD commanded them,
Psalm 106:35   But they mingled with the nations And learned their practices,
Psalm 106:36   And served their idols, Which became a snare to them.
Psalm 106:37   They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons,
Psalm 106:38   And shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and their daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with the blood.
Psalm 106:39   Thus they became unclean in their practices, And played the harlot in their deeds.
Psalm 106:40   Therefore the anger of the LORD was kindled against His people And He abhorred His inheritance.
Psalm 106:41   Then He gave them into the hand of the nations, And those who hated them ruled over them.
Psalm 106:42   Their enemies also oppressed them, And they were subdued under their power.
Psalm 106:43   Many times He would deliver them; They, however, were rebellious in their counsel, And so sank down in their iniquity.

Psalm 106:45   And He remembered His covenant for their sake, And relented according to the greatness of His lovingkindness.
Psalm 106:46   He also made them objects of compassion In the presence of all their captors.
