Psalms 106:19-23


106:19 They made an image of a calf at Horeb,

and worshiped a metal idol.

106:20 They traded their majestic God 1 

for the image of an ox that eats grass.

106:21 They rejected 2  the God who delivered them,

the one who performed great deeds in Egypt,

106:22 amazing feats in the land of Ham,

mighty 3  acts by the Red Sea.

106:23 He threatened 4  to destroy them,

but 5  Moses, his chosen one, interceded with him 6 

and turned back his destructive anger. 7 

1 tn Heb “their glory.” According to an ancient Hebrew scribal tradition, the text originally read “his glory” or “my glory.” In Jer 2:11 the Lord states that his people (Israel) exchanged “their glory” (a reference to the Lord) for worthless idols.

3 tn Or “awe-inspiring.”

4 tn Heb “and he said.”
