Psalm 105.1–6, 16–22
1 O give thanks to the Lord and call upon his name:
tell among the peoples what things he has done.
2 Sing to him, O sing praises:
and be telling of all his marvellous works.
3 Exult in his holy name:
and let those that seek the Lord be joyful in heart.
4 Seek the Lord and his strength:
O seek his face continually.
5 Call to mind what wonders he has done:
his marvellous acts, and the judgements of his mouth,
6 O seed of Abraham his servant:
O children of Jacob his chosen one.
16 Then he called down a famine on the land:
and destroyed the bread that was their stay.
17 But he had sent a man ahead of them:
Joseph who was sold into slavery,
18 Whose feet they fastened with fetters:
and thrust his neck into a hoop of iron.
19 Till the time that his words proved true:
he was tested by the Lord’s command.
20 Then the king sent and loosed him:
the ruler of nations set him free;
21 He made him master of his household:
and ruler over all his possessions,
22 To rebuke his officers at will:
and to teach his counsellors wisdom.
