1Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.

  2Give thanks to the God of gods.

  3Give thanks to the Lord of lords:

  4to him who alone does great wonders,

  5who by his understanding made the heavens,

  6who spread out the earth upon the waters,

  7who made the great lights—

  8the sun to govern the day,

  9the moon and stars to govern the night;

  10to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt

  11and brought Israel out from among them

  12with a mighty hand and outstretched arm;

  13to him who divided the Red Sea asunder

  14and brought Israel through the midst of it,

  15but swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea;

  16to him who led his people through the wilderness;

  17to him who struck down great kings,

  18and killed mighty kings—

  19Sihon king of the Amorites

  20and Og king of Bashan—

  21and gave their land as an inheritance,

  22an inheritance to his servant Israel.

  23He remembered us in our low estate

  24and freed us from our enemies.

  25He gives food to every creature.

  26Give thanks to the God of heaven.
