1 [Alleluia.] Give thanks to the Lord, and call upon his name; declare his works among the heathen. 2 Sing to him, yea, sing praises to him: tell forth all his wonderful works. 3 Glory in his holy name: let the heart of them that seek the Lord rejoice. 4 Seek ye the Lord, and be strengthened; seek his face continually. 5 Remember his wonderful works that he has done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth; 6 [ye] seed of Abraam, his servants, [ye] children of Jacob, his chosen ones. 7 He is the Lord our God; his judgments are in all the earth. 8 He has remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded for a thousand generation: 9 which he established as a covenant to Abraam, and [he remembered] his oath to Isaac. 10 And he established it to Jacob for an ordinance, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant; 11 saying To thee will I give the land of Chanaan, the line of your inheritance: 12 when they were few in number, very few, and sojourners in it. 13 And they went from nation to nation, and from [one] kingdom to another people. 14 He suffered no man to wrong them; and he rebuked kings for their sakes: 15 [saying], Touch not my anointed ones; and do my prophets no harm. 16 Moreover he called for a famine upon the land; he broke the whole support of bread. 17 He sent a man before them; Joseph was sold for a slave. 18 They hurt his feet with fetters; his soul passed into iron, 19 until the time that his cause came on; the word of the Lord tried him as fire. 20 The king sent and loosed him; [even] the prince of the people, and let him go free. 21 He made him Lord over his house, and ruler of all his substance; 22 to chastise his rulers at his pleasure, and to teach his elders wisdom. 23 Israel also came into Egypt, and Jacob sojourned in the land of Cham. 24 And he increased his people greatly, and made them stronger than their enemies. 25 And he turned their heart to hate his people, to deal craftily with his servants. 26 He sent fort Moses his servant, [and] Aaron whom he had chosen. 27 He established among them his signs, and [his] wonders in the land of Cham. 28 He sent forth darkness, and made it dark; yet they rebelled against his words. 29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish. 30 Their land produce frogs abundantly, in the chambers of their kings. 31 He spoke, and the dog-fly came, and lice in all their coasts. 32 He turned their rain into hail, [and sent] flaming fire in their land. 33 And he smote their vines and their fig trees; and broke every tree of their coast. 34 He spoke, and the locust came, and caterpillars innumerable, 35 and devoured all the grass in their land, and devoured the fruit of the ground. 36 He smote also every first-born of their land, the first-fruits of all their labour. 37 And he brought them out with silver and gold; and there was not a feeble one among their tribes. 38 Egypt rejoiced at their departing; for the fear of them fell upon them. 39 He spread out a cloud for a covering to them, and fire to give them light by night. 40 They asked, and the quail came, and he satisfied them with the bread of heaven. 41 He clave the rock, and the waters flowed, rivers ran in dry places. 42 For he remembered his holy word, which [he promised] to Abraam his servant. 43 And he brought out his people with exultation, and his chosen with joy; 44 and gave them the lands of the heathen; and they inherited the labours of the people; 45 that they might keep his ordinances, and diligently seek his law.
᾿Αλληλούϊα. - ΕΞΟΜΟΛΟΓΕΙΣΘΕ τῷ Κυρίῳ καὶ ἐπικαλεῖσθε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ, ἀπαγγείλατε ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσι τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ· 2 ᾄσατε αὐτῷ καὶ ψάλατε αὐτῷ, διηγήσασθε πάντα τὰ θαυμάσια αὐτοῦ. 3 ἐπαινεῖσθε ἐν τῷ ὀνόματι τῷ ἁγίῳ αὐτοῦ. εὐφρανθήτω καρδία ζητούντων τὸν Κύριον· 4 ζητήσατε τὸν Κύριον καὶ κραταιώθητε, ζητήσατε τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ διαπαντός. 5 μνήσθητε τῶν θαυμασίων αὐτοῦ, ὧν ἐποίησε, τὰ τέρατα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ κρίματα τοῦ στόματος αὐτοῦ, 6 σπέρμα ῾Αβραὰμ δοῦλοι αὐτοῦ, υἱοὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἐκλεκτοὶ αὐτοῦ. 7 αὐτὸς Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ τὰ κρίματα αὐτοῦ. 8 ἐμνήσθη εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα διαθήκης αὐτοῦ, λόγου, οὗ ἐνετείλατο εἰς χιλίας γενεάς, 9 ὃν διέθετο τῷ ῾Αβραάμ, καὶ τοῦ ὅρκου αὐτοῦ τῷ ᾿Ισαὰκ 10 καὶ ἔστησεν αὐτὸν τῷ ᾿Ιακὼβ εἰς πρόσταγμα καὶ τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ εἰς διαθήκην αἰώνιον 11 λέγων· σοὶ δώσω τὴν γῆν Χαναὰν σχοίνισμα κληρονομίας ὑμῶν. 12 ἐν τῷ εἶναι αὐτοὺς ἀριθμῷ βραχεῖς, ὀλιγοστοὺς καὶ παροίκους ἐν αὐτῇ 13 καὶ διῆλθον ἐξ ἔθνους εἰς ἔθνος, καὶ ἐκ βασιλείας εἰς λαὸν ἕτερον. 14 οὐκ ἀφῆκεν ἄνθρωπον ἀδικῆσαι αὐτοὺς καὶ ἤλεγξεν ὑπὲρ αὐτῶν βασιλεῖς· 15 μὴ ἅπτεσθε τῶν χριστῶν μου καὶ ἐν τοῖς προφήταις μου μὴ πονηρεύεσθε. 16 καὶ ἐκάλεσε λιμὸν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν, πᾶν στήριγμα ἄρτου συνέτριψεν· 17 ἀπέστειλεν ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῶν ἄνθρωπον, εἰς δοῦλον ἐπράθη ᾿Ιωσήφ. 18 ἐταπείνωσαν ἐν πέδαις τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ, σίδηρον διῆλθεν ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτοῦ 19 μέχρι τοῦ ἐλθεῖν τὸν λόγον αὐτοῦ, τὸ λόγιον τοῦ Κυρίου ἐπύρωσεν αὐτόν. 20 ἀπέστειλε βασιλεὺς καὶ ἔλυσεν αὐτόν, ἄρχων λαοῦ, καὶ ἀφῆκεν αὐτόν. 21 κατέστησεν αὐτὸν κύριον τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἄρχοντα πάσης τῆς κτήσεως αὐτοῦ 22 τοῦ παιδεῦσαι τοὺς ἄρχοντας αὐτοῦ ὡς ἑαυτὸν καὶ τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους αὐτοῦ σοφίσαι. 23 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ᾿Ισραὴλ εἰς Αἴγυπτον, καὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ παρῴκησεν ἐν γῇ Χάμ. 24 καὶ ηὔξησε τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ σφόδρα καὶ ἐκραταίωσεν αὐτὸν ὑπὲρ τοὺς ἐχθροὺς αὐτοῦ. 25 μετέστρεψε τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ τοῦ μισῆσαι τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ, τοῦ δολιοῦσθαι ἐν τοῖς δούλοις αὐτοῦ. 26 ἐξαπέστειλε Μωϋσῆν τὸν δοῦλον αὐτοῦ, ᾿Ααρών, ὃν ἐξελέξατο ἑαυτῷ. 27 ἔθετο ἐν αὐτοῖς τοὺς λόγους τῶν σημείων αὐτοῦ καὶ τῶν τεράτων αὐτοῦ ἐν γῇ Χάμ. 28 ἐξαπέστειλε σκότος καὶ ἐσκότασεν, ὅτι παρεπίκραναν τοὺς λόγους αὐτοῦ· 29 μετέστρεψε τὰ ὕδατα αὐτῶν εἰς αἷμα, καὶ ἀπέκτεινε τοὺς ἰχθύας αὐτῶν. 30 ἐξῆρψεν ἡ γῆ αὐτῶν βατράχους ἐν τοῖς ταμιείοις τῶν βασιλέων αὐτῶν. 31 εἶπε, καὶ ἦλθε κυνόμυια καὶ σκνῖπες ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς ὁρίοις αὐτῶν. 32 ἔθετο τὰς βροχὰς αὐτῶν χάλαζαν, πῦρ καταφλέγον ἐν τῇ γῇ αὐτῶν, 33 καὶ ἐπάταξε τὰς ἀμπέλους αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς συκᾶς αὐτῶν καὶ συνέτριψε πᾶν ξύλον ὁρίου αὐτῶν. 34 εἶπε καὶ ἦλθεν ἀκρίς, καὶ βροῦχος, οὗ οὐκ ἦν ἀριθμός, 35 καὶ κατέφαγε πάντα τὸν χόρτον ἐν τῇ γῇ αὐτῶν, καὶ κατέφαγε τὸν καρπὸν τῆς γῆς αὐτῶν. 36 καὶ ἐπάταξε πᾶν πρωτότοκον ἐν τῇ γῇ αὐτῶν, ἀπαρχὴν παντὸς πόνου αὐτῶν. 37 καὶ ἐξήγαγεν αὐτοὺς ἐν ἀργυρίῳ καὶ χρυσίῳ, καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἐν ταῖς φυλαῖς αὐτῶν ὁ ἀσθενῶν. 38 εὐφράνθη Αἴγυπτος ἐν τῇ ἐξόδῳ αὐτῶν, ὅτι ἐπέπεσεν ὁ φόβος αὐτῶν ἐπ᾿ αὐτούς. 39 διεπέτασε νεφέλην εἰς σκέπην αὐτοῖς καὶ πῦρ τοῦ φωτίσαι αὐτοῖς τὴν νύκτα. 40 ᾔτησαν, καὶ ἦλθεν ὀρτυγομήτρα, καὶ ἄρτον οὐρανοῦ ἐνέπλησεν αὐτούς· 41 διέρρηξε πέτραν, καὶ ἐρρύησαν ὕδατα, ἐπορεύθησαν ἐν ἀνύδροις ποταμοί. 42 ὅτι ἐμνήσθη τοῦ λόγου τοῦ ἁγίου αὐτοῦ τοῦ πρὸς ῾Αβραὰμ τὸν δοῦλον αὐτοῦ 43 καὶ ἐξήγαγε τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ἐν ἀγαλλιάσει καὶ τοὺς ἐκλεκτοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ. 44 καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτοῖς χώρας ἐθνῶν, καὶ πόνους λαῶν κατεκληρονόμησαν, 45 ὅπως ἂν φυλάξωσι τὰ δικαιώματα αὐτοῦ, καὶ τὸν νόμον αὐτοῦ ἐκζητήσωσιν.
