1 Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!
2 Who can utter the mighty deeds of the Lord,
or declare all his praise?
3 Blessed are they who observe justice,
who do righteousness at all times!
44 Nevertheless, he looked upon their distress,
when he heard their cry.
45 For their sake he remembered his covenant,
and relented according to the abundance of his steadfast love.
46 He caused them to be pitied
by all those who held them captive.
This Psalm starts with praise, then recounts the history of Israel after they left Egypt, but concludes with the reminder that God heard and forgave. That is still a truth today, when we blow it we can call out to God and he will forgive.
