God and His People
(1 Chronicles 16.8 -22)

Psalm 105 Give thanks to the LORD, proclaim his greatness;
tell the nations what he has done.
2Sing praise to the LORD;
tell the wonderful things he has done.
3Be glad that we belong to him;
let all who worship him rejoice.
4Go to the LORD for help;
and worship him continually.
5-6You descendants of Abraham, his servant;
you descendants of Jacob, the man he chose:
remember the miracles that God performed
and the judgments that he gave.

7The LORD is our God;
his commands are for all the world.
8He will keep his covenant forever,
his promises for a thousand generations.
9He will keep the agreement he made with Abraham
and his promise to Isaac.
10The LORD made a covenant with Jacob,
one that will last forever.
11"I will give you the land of Canaan," he said.
"It will be your own possession."

12God's people were few in number,
strangers in the land of Canaan.
13They wandered from country to country,
from one kingdom to another.
14But God let no one oppress them;
to protect them, he warned the kings:
15"Don't harm my chosen servants;
do not touch my prophets."

16The LORD sent famine to their country
and took away all their food.
17But he sent a man ahead of them,
Joseph, who had been sold as a slave.
18His feet were kept in chains,
and an iron collar was around his neck,
19until what he had predicted came true.
The word of the LORD proved him right.
20Then the king of Egypt had him released;
the ruler of nations set him free.
21He put him in charge of his government
and made him ruler over all the land,
22with power over the king's officials
and authority to instruct his advisers.
