The Holy Bible – Knox Translation
The Book of Psalms
Give thanks to the Lord for his goodness, his mercy is eternal;
give thanks to the God of gods, his mercy is eternal;
give thanks to the Lord of lords, his mercy is eternal.
Eternal his mercy, who does great deeds as none else can;
eternal his mercy, whose wisdom made the heavens;
eternal his mercy, who poised earth upon the floods.
Eternal his mercy, who made the great luminaries;
made the sun to rule by day, his mercy is eternal;
made the moon and the stars to rule by night, his mercy is eternal.
Eternal his mercy, who smote the Egyptians by smiting their first-born;
eternal his mercy, who delivered Israel from their midst,
with constraining power, with his arm raised on high, his mercy is eternal.
Eternal the mercy that divided the Red Sea in two,
eternal the mercy that led Israel through its waters,
eternal the mercy that drowned in the Red Sea Pharao and Pharao’s men.
And so he led his people through the wilderness, his mercy is eternal.
Eternal the mercy that smote great kings,
eternal the mercy that slew the kings in their pride,
Sehon king of the Amorrhites, his mercy is eternal,
and Og the king of Basan, his mercy is eternal.
Eternal the mercy that marked down their land to be a dwelling-place;
a dwelling-place for his servant Israel, his mercy is eternal.
Eternal the mercy that remembers us in our affliction,
eternal the mercy that rescues us from our enemies,
eternal the mercy that gives all living things their food.
Give thanks to the God of heaven, his mercy is eternal.
