13 What time as they went from one nation to a no--ther : from one kingdom to ano{ther --- peo-| ple;

14 He suffered no man to do them --- wrong : but reproved even kings for -- their | sakes ;

15 Touch not mine Anoint--ed : and do my prophets -- no harm.

16 Moreover, he called for a dearth upon the land : and destroyed all the provision --- of bread.

18 Whose feet they hurt in the --- stocks : the iron entered into -- his soul ;

19 Until the time came that his cause I was -known : the word of the Lord tri---ed | him.

21 He made him lord also of his house : and ruler of all { his --- sub | stance ;

22 That he might inform his princes after his will : and teach his sena{tors wisdom.

23 Israel also came into | E-'-gypt : and Jacob was a stranger in the { land of | Ham.

24 And he increased his people exceed | ing-ly : and made them stronger than their emies;

25 Whose heart turned so, that they hated his I peo-'-ple : and dealt untruly with his -- ser- | vants.

26 Then sent he Moses his / ser--vant : and Aaron whom he had

28 He sent darkness, and it was --- dark : and they were not obedient un{to his word.

29 He turned their waters in to blood : and slew their | fish.

30 Their land brought forth -- frogs : yea, even in their kings' -'- chambers.

31 He spake the word, and there came all manner | of --- flies : and lice in all { their

32 He gave them hail-stones | for rain : and flames of fire { in their | land.

33 He smote their vines also and | fig-o-trees and destroyed the trees that were { in -- their | coasts.

34 He spake the word, and the grasshoppers came, and caterpillars innumera--ble: and did eat up all the grass in their land, and devoured the fruit } of --- their ground.

35 He smote all the first-born in their -- land : even the chief of Į all

their strength. 36 He brought them forth also with silver / and gold : there was not one feeble person a mong their tribes.

37 Egypt was glad at their de part--ing : for they were a{fraid of them.

38 He spread out a cloud to be a cover--ing : and fire to give light in the night --- sea | son. 39 At their desire he brought

O GIVE thanks unto the Lord, for

he is gra--cious : and his mercy endureth for -- ever. 2 Who can express the noble acts of the

Lord : or shew forth { all his | praise ?

3 Blessed are they that alway keep | judge-'ment : and do { right--eousness.

4 Remember me, O Lord, according to the favour that thou bearest unto thy | peo--ple : 0 visit me with thy { sal-:-vation ;

5 That I may see the felicity of thy | cho--sen ; and rejoice in the gladness of thy people, and give thanks with thine in {he---rit | ance.

6 We have sinned with our | fa-'-thers : we have done amiss, and dealt wick--edly.

7 Our fathers regarded not thy wonders in Egypt, neither kept they thy great goodness in re | mem-'brance : 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 known.

9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dri | ed -- up : so he led them through the deep, as through a {wil---der | ness.

10 And he saved them from the adversa | ry's hand : and delivered them from the hand of the en-'-e| my.

11 As for those that troubled them, the waters overwhelm | ed them : there was not one of them | left. 12 Then believed they | his

words : and sang praise un---to him. 13 But within a while they forgat | his

- works : and would not abide {his --- counsel.

14 But lust came upon them in the wilder--ness : and they tempted God in the de sert.

15 And he gave them their | de-'-sire : and sent leanness withal in{to 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 | Da---than : and covered the congregation of A.biram.

18 And the fire was kindled in their com-:pany : the flame burnt up the un--god | ly.

19 They made a calf in | Ho-'-reb : and worshipped the molten -- image.

20 Thus they turned their | glo--ry : into the similitude of a calf that įeat---eth | hay.

21 And they forgat God their sa---viour : 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 de---stroy them.

24 Yea, they thought scorn of that plea | sant -'m land : and gave no credence un{to 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 { wil---der ness;

27 To cast out their seed among the na--tions : and to scatter them { in the lands.

28 They joined themselves unto Baal | pe-:-or : and ate the offerings { of --- the dead.

29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their own in | ven---tions ; and the plague was great { 2---mong | them.

30 Then stood up Phinees and I pray--ed : and so the plague --- cea | sed.

31 Ånd that was counted unto him for right-| eous-'-ness ; among all posterities for {e---ver-1

32 They angered him also at the waters of strife : so that he punished Moses { for

their sakes ;

33 Because they provoked his spi--rit : so that he spake unadvisedly { with -- his lips.

34 Neither destroyed they the hea-'-then : as the Lord command---ed them;
