Psalm 106.1–6, 20–24
1 Praise the Lord;
O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good:
and his mercy endures for ever.
2 Who can express the mighty acts of the Lord:
or fully voice his praise?
3 Blessed are those who act according to justice:
who at all times do the right.
4 Remember me, O Lord,
when you visit your people with your favour:
and come to me also with your salvation,
5 That I may see the prosperity of your chosen:
that I may rejoice with the rejoicing of your people,
and exult with those who are your own.
6 We have sinned like our ancestors:
we have acted perversely and done wrong.
20 At Horeb they made themselves a calf:
and bowed down in worship to an image.
21 And so they exchanged the glory of God:
for the likeness of an ox that eats hay.
22 They forgot God who was their saviour:
that had done such great things in Egypt,
23 Who had worked his wonders in the land of Ham:
and his terrible deeds at the Red Sea.
24 Therefore he thought to destroy them:
had not Moses his servant stood before him in the breach,
to turn away his wrath from destroying them.
