Psalms 106:7-13


106:7 Our ancestors in Egypt failed to appreciate your miraculous deeds,

they failed to remember your many acts of loyal love,

and they rebelled at the sea, by the Red Sea. 1 

106:8 Yet he delivered them for the sake of his reputation, 2 

that he might reveal his power.

106:9 He shouted at 3  the Red Sea and it dried up;

he led them through the deep water as if it were a desert.

106:10 He delivered them from the power 4  of the one who hated them,

and rescued 5  them from the power 6  of the enemy.

106:11 The water covered their enemies;

not even one of them survived. 7 

106:12 They believed his promises; 8 

they sang praises to him.

106:13 They quickly forgot what he had done; 9 

they did not wait for his instructions. 10 

1 tn Heb “Reed Sea” (also in vv. 9, 22). “Reed Sea” (or “Sea of Reeds”) is a more accurate rendering of the Hebrew expression יָם סוּף (yam suf), traditionally translated “Red Sea.” See the note on the term “Red Sea” in Exod 13:18.

sn They rebelled. The psalmist recalls the people’s complaint recorded in Exod 14:12.

2 tn Heb “his name,” which here stands metonymically for God’s reputation.

3 tn Or “rebuked.”

4 tn Heb “hand.”

5 tn Or “redeemed.”

6 tn Heb “hand.”

7 tn Heb “remained.”

8 tn Heb “his words.”

9 tn Heb “his works.”

10 tn Heb “his counsel.”
