Psalm 105:12
Context
Tell of His Wonderful Works!

1O give thanks to the LORD; call on his name: make known his deeds among the people. 2Sing to him, sing psalms to him: talk you of all his wondrous works. 3Glory you in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. 4Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face ever more. 5Remember his marvelous works that he has done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth; 6O you seed of Abraham his servant, you children of Jacob his chosen. 7He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth. 8He has remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. 9Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath to Isaac; 10And confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant: 11Saying, To you will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance: 12When they were but a few men in number; yes, very few, and strangers in it. 13When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people; 14He suffered no man to do them wrong: yes, he reproved kings for their sakes; 15Saying, Touch not my anointed, and do my prophets no harm. 16Moreover he called for a famine on the land: he broke the whole staff of bread. 17He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant: 18Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron: 19Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him. 20The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free. 21He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance: 22To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom. 23Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham. 24And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies. 25He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtly with his servants. 26He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen. 27They showed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham. 28He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word. 29He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish. 30Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings. 31He spoke, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all their coasts. 32He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land. 33He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and broke the trees of their coasts. 34He spoke, and the locusts came, and caterpillars, and that without number, 35And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground. 36He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength. 37He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes. 38Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell on them. 39He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night. 40The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven. 41He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river. 42For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant. 43And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness: 44And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labor of the people; 45That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise you the LORD.
