BRAGADAYJAH 1472 Psalm 105 Part III God’s faithfulness to Israel He [God] spake and there came divers sorts of flies and lice in all their coasts. He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land. He smote their vines also and their fig trees and broke the trees of their coasts He spake and the locusts came, and caterpillars and that without number; and did eat up all the herbs of their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground. He smote also all the first-born of their land, the chief of all their strength. He brought them forth also with silver and gold, and there was not one feeble person among their tribes. Egypt was glad when they departed; for the fear of them fell upon them. He spread a cloud for covering, and fire to give light in the night. The people asked and He brought quails and satisfied them with the bread of heaven. He opened the rock and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river. For He remembered His holy promises and Abraham His servant. And He brought forth His people with joy, and His chosen with gladness; and gave them the lands of the heathen and they inherited the labour of the people, that they might observe His statutes, and keep His laws. Praise ye the Lord.

BRAGADAYJAH 1471 Psalm 105 Part II God’s faithfulness to Israel. [The Lord said] Touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm. Moreover He called for a famine upon the land, He broke the whole staff of bread. He sent a man before them even Joseph who was sold for a servant; whose feet they hurt with fetters, he was laid in iron,until the time that His word came. The word of the Lord tried him, Their king sent and loosed him, even the ruler of the people sent and let him go free. He made him lord of his home, and ruler of all his substance. To bind his prince at his pleasure and teach the Senators wisdom. Israel also came into Egypt and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham, and he increased his people greatly, and made them stronger than their enemies. He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtley with His servants. He sent Moses His servant and Aaron whom He had chosen. They showed His signs among them and wonders in the land of Ham. He sent darkness and made it dark and they rebelled not against His word. He turned their waters into blood and slew their fish. Their land brought forth frog in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.

BRAGADAYJAH 1470 Psalm 105 God’s faithfulness to Israel O give thanks unto the Lord, call upon His name, make known His deeds among the people. Sing unto Him, sing Psalms unto Him, talk ye of all His wondrous works. Glory ye in His holy name, let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. Seek the Lord and His strength, seek His face evermore. Remember His marvelous works that He has done, His wonders and the judgments of His mouth. O ye seed of Abraham His servants, ye seed of Jacob His chosen, He is the Lord our God, His judgements are in all the earth. He has remembered His covenants forever. The word which he commanded to a thousand generations, which covenant He made with Abraham, and His oath unto Isaac. and confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law; and to Israel for an everlasting covenant saying: Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan the lot of your inheritance. When they were but a few men in number, yea very few and strangers in it. When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people. He sufferened no man to do them wrong yea He reproved kings for their sake. [ To be continued]

BRAGADAYJAH 1469 Psalm 104 Part II Praise to the God of Creation. He[God], appointed the moon for seasons, the sun knoweth his going down. Thou maketh darkness and it is night, wherein all the beasts of the field do creep forth. The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God. The sun arises, they gather themselves together and lay them down in their dens. Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening. O Lord, how manifold are thy works? In wisdom has thou made them all; the earth is full of thy riches. So is the great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts. There go the ships, there is that leviathan whom thou has made to play therein. These wait all upon thee, that thou mayest give them their meat in due season; that thou givest them; they gather, thou openeth thy hand, they are filled with good. Thou hideth thy face, they are troubled, thou taketh away their breath, they die and retun to the dust. Thou sendeth forth thy spirit, they are created and thou renewest the face of the earth. The glory of the Lord shall endure forever, the Lord shsll rejoice in His works. He looketh on the earth and it trembleth, He toucheth the hills and they smoke. I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live, I will sing praise to my God as long as I have my being. My meditation of Him shall be sweet, I will be glad in the Lord. Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the Lord O my soul, Praise ye the Lord.

BRAGADAYJAH 1468 Psalm 104 Prayer to the God of Creation. Bless the Lord, O my soul, O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Who covereth thyself with light as with a garment; who stretched out the heaven like a curtain. Who layeth the beams of His chambers in the waters; who maketh the clouds His chariot; who walketh upon the wings of the wind; who maketh His angels spirits; His ministers a flaming fire; who laid the foundation of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever. Thou covereth it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains. At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hastened away. They go up by the mountains, they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them. Thou hast set a bound which they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth. He sendeth the springs into the valleys which run among the hills. They give drink to every beast of the field. The wild asses quench their thirst. By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation which sing among the branches. He watereth the hills from His chambers, the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works. He cuaseth the grass to grow for the cattle, the herb for the service of man, that he may bring forth food out of the earth. And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine. And bread which strengtheneth man’s heart. The trees of the Lord are full of sap, the cedars of Lebanon which He has planted where the birds make their nests. As for the stork the fir trees are her house. The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats, and the rocks for the conies.[the badgers]

BRAGADAYJAH 1467. Psalm 103. A Psalm of David. A Psalm of unmixed Praise Part II. As far as the East is from the West, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. Like as a father pittieth his children, so the Lord pittieth them that fear Him. For He knoweth our frame, He remembereth that we are dust. As for man his days are like grass; as a flower of the field so he flourishest; for the wind passeth over it and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more; but the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting, upon them that fear Him, and His righteousness to children’s children, to such as keep His covenant and to them that remember His commandments to do them. The Lord has prepared His throne in the heavens and his kindom ruleth over all. Bless the Lord ye His angels that excel in strength that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His word. Bless ye the Lord all ye His hosts ye minister of His that do His pleasure. Bless the Lord all his works in all places of His dominiuion: bless the Lord O my soul.

BRAGADAYJAH 1466 PSALM 103: A PSALM OF DAVID A PSALM OF UNMIXED PRAISE Part I Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benfits. Who forgetteth all thine iniquities, who healeth all thy diseases. Who redeemeth thy life from destruction, who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies. Who satifieth thy mouth with good things, so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed. He made known His ways unto Moses, His acts unto the children of Israel. The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide, neither will He keep His anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor reward us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy to them that fear Him.
