Psalm 105:23-45(GNT)

God’s Saving Word: Praise and Thanksgiving


Psalm 105:23-45: Today’s reading speaks of Moses and Aaron, chosen by God to perform God’s mighty acts and miracles in Egypt (see Exodus 7—10). The psalm concludes with a description of God leading the people out of Egypt and providing for them when they were in the desert (see Exodus 12:37-42; 14:1-31; 16:1—17:7).

Scripture Reading

23 Then Jacob went to Egypt
    and settled in that country.
24 The Lord gave many children to his people
    and made them stronger than their enemies.
25 He made the Egyptians hate his people
    and treat his servants with deceit.

26 Then he sent his servant Moses,
    and Aaron, whom he had chosen.
27 They did God’s mighty acts
    and performed miracles in Egypt.
28 God sent darkness on the country,
    but the Egyptians did not obey[a] his command.
29 He turned their rivers into blood
    and killed all their fish.
30 Their country was overrun with frogs;
    even the palace was filled with them.
31 God commanded, and flies and gnats
    swarmed throughout the whole country.
32 He sent hail and lightning on their land
    instead of rain;
33 he destroyed their grapevines and fig trees
    and broke down all the trees.
34 He commanded, and the locusts came,
    countless millions of them;
35 they ate all the plants in the land;
    they ate all the crops.
36 He killed the first-born sons
    of all the families of Egypt.

37 Then he led the Israelites out;
    they carried silver and gold,
    and all of them were healthy and strong.
38 The Egyptians were afraid of them
    and were glad when they left.
39 God put a cloud over his people
    and a fire at night to give them light.
40 They[b] asked, and he sent quails;
    he gave them food from heaven to satisfy them.
41 He opened a rock, and water gushed out,
    flowing through the desert like a river.
42 He remembered his sacred promise
    to Abraham his servant.

43 So he led his chosen people out,
    and they sang and shouted for joy.
44 He gave them the lands of other peoples
    and let them take over their fields,
45 so that his people would obey his laws
    and keep all his commands.

Praise the Lord!
