To all generations forevermore.

So that he spoke rashly with his lips.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 106:34 - They did not destroy the peoples,
Concerning whom the LORD had commanded them,
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 106:35 - But they mingled with the Gentiles
And learned their works;

And their daughters to demons,
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 106:38 - And shed innocent blood,
The blood of their sons and daughters,
Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;

And played the harlot by their own deeds.

And were brought low for their iniquity.

When He heard their cry;

And relented according to the multitude of His mercies.

By all those who carried them away captive.

And gather us from among the Gentiles,
To give thanks to Your holy name,
To triumph in Your praise.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 106:48 - Blessed be the LORD God of Israel
From everlasting to everlasting!
And let all the people say, “Amen!”

Praise the LORD!
