Psalm 106:1
Praise you the LORD. O give thanks to the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever.
Treasury of Scripture

As part of the preceding Psalm is found in

1 Chronicles ch.

Psalm 106:16 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the LORD.

, so the first and two last verses of this are found in the same place; and it is highly probable this was composed upon the same occasion as the former, to which it seems to be a continuation; for as that celebrates the mercies of God to Israel, so this confesses and deplores the rebellions of Israel against Jehovah.

Praise ye the Lord. Heb. Hallelujah

Give Thanks to the Lord, for He is Good

1Praise you the LORD. O give thanks to the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever. 2Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can show forth all his praise? 3Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that does righteousness at all times. 4Remember me, O LORD, with the favor that you bore to your people: O visit me with your salvation; 5That I may see the good of your chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation, that I may glory with your inheritance. 6We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly. 7Our fathers understood not your wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of your mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea. 8Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known. 9He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness. 10And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. 11And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left. 12Then believed they his words; they sang his praise. 13They soon forgot his works; they waited not for his counsel: 14But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. 15And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul. 16They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the LORD. 17The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan and covered the company of Abiram. 18And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked. 19They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image. 20Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eats grass. 21They forgot God their savior, which had done great things in Egypt; 22Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea. 23Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them. 24Yes, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word: 25But murmured in their tents, and listened not to the voice of the LORD. 26Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness: 27To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands. 28They joined themselves also to Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead. 29Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the plague broke in on them. 30Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was stayed. 31And that was counted to him for righteousness to all generations for ever more. 32They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes: 33Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spoke unadvisedly with his lips. 34They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them: 35But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works. 36And they served their idols: which were a snare to them. 37Yes, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to devils, 38And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood. 39Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions. 40Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, so that he abhorred his own inheritance. 41And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them. 42Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand. 43Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity. 44Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry: 45And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies. 46He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives. 47Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks to your holy name, and to triumph in your praise. 48Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise you the LORD.
