November 12 - Psalm 105.23-45
23Jacob and his family
and settled in Egypt as foreigners.
24They were the LORD's people,
so he let them grow stronger than their enemies.
25They served the LORD, and he made the Egyptians plan
hateful things against them.
26God sent his servant Moses.
He also chose and sent Aaron 27to his people in Egypt,
and they worked miracles and wonders there.
28Moses and Aaron obeyed God,
and he sent darkness to cover Egypt.
29God turned their rivers into streams of blood,
and the fish all died.
30Frogs were everywhere, even in the royal palace.
31When God gave the command,
flies and gnats swarmed all around.
32In place of rain, God sent hailstones
and flashes of lightning.
33He destroyed their grapevines and their fig trees,
and he made splinters of all the other trees.
34God gave the command, and more grasshoppers came
than could be counted.
35They ate every green plant
and all the crops that grew in the land of Egypt.
36Then God took the life of every first-born son.
37When God led Israel from Egypt,
they took silver and gold, and no one was left behind.
38The Egyptians were afraid and gladly let them go.
39God hid them under a cloud
and guided them by fire during the night.
40When they asked for food,
he sent more birds than they could eat.
41God even split open a rock,
and streams of water gushed into the desert.
42God never forgot his sacred promise
to his servant Abraham.
43When the Lord rescued his chosen people from Egypt,
they celebrated with songs.
44The Lord gave them the land
and everything else the nations had worked for.
45He did this so that his people
would obey all of his laws.
Shout praises to the LORD!
