7He is the Lord our God;
His judgments are in all the earth.
8He has remembered His covenant forever,
The word which He commanded to a thousand generations,
9 The covenant which He made with Abraham,
And His oath to Isaac.
10Then He confirmed it to Jacob as a statute,
To Israel as an everlasting covenant,
11Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan
As the Lit measuring lineportion of your inheritance,”
12When they were only a few people in number,
Very few, and strangers in it.
13And they wandered from nation to nation,
From one kingdom to another people,
14He allowed no one to oppress them,
And He Or punishedrebuked kings for their sakes, saying,
15“Do not touch My anointed ones,
And do not harm My prophets.”
16And He called for a famine upon the land;
He broke the whole staff of bread.
17He sent a man before them,
Joseph, who was sold as a slave.
18They forced his feet into shackles,
Lit His soul came into He was put in irons;
19Until the time that his word came to pass,
The word of the Lord refined him.

The ruler of peoples, and set him free.

And ruler over all his possessions,
22To Lit bindimprison his high officials Lit at hisat will,
That he might teach his elders wisdom.
23Israel also came into Egypt;
So Jacob lived in the land of Ham.
24And He made His people very fruitful,
And made them stronger than their enemies.
25He turned their heart to hate His people,
To deal cunningly with His servants.
26He sent His servant Moses,
And Aaron, whom He had chosen.
27They Lit set the words of His signsperformed His wondrous acts among them,
And miracles in the land of Ham.
28He sent darkness and made it dark;
And they did not rebel against His words.
29He turned their waters into blood,
And caused their fish to die.
30Their land swarmed with frogs
Even in the chambers of their kings.
31He spoke, and a swarm of flies
And gnats invaded all their territory.
32He Or made their rain hailgave them hail for rain,
And flaming fire in their land.
33He also struck their vines and their fig trees,
And smashed the trees of their territory.
34He spoke, and locusts came,
And creeping locusts, beyond number,
35And they ate all the vegetation in their land,
And ate the fruit of their ground.
36He also fatally struck all the firstborn in their land,
The first fruits of all their vigor.
37Then He brought Lit themthe Israelites out with silver and gold,
And among His tribes there was not one who stumbled.
38Egypt was glad when they departed,
For the dread of them had fallen upon Lit themthe Egyptians.
39He spread out a cloud as a Or curtaincovering,
And fire to illumine by night.
40 Or One They asked, and He brought quail,
And satisfied them with the Or foodbread of heaven.
41He opened the Or boulderrock and water flowed out;
Lit They went It ran in the dry places like a river.
42For He remembered His holy word
With His servant Abraham;
43And He led out His people with joy,
His chosen ones with a joyful shout.
44He also gave them the lands of the Or Gentilesnations,
So that they might take possession of the fruit of the peoples’ labor,
45 And that they might keep His statutes
And comply with His laws;
Or Hallelujah! Praise Heb Yahthe Lord!
