107:001 O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
107:002 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
107:003 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
107:004 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.
107:005 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
107:006 Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.
107:007 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
107:008 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:009 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
107:010 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;
107:011 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:
107:012 Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.
107:013 Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.
107:014 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.
107:015 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:016 For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.
107:017 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.
107:018 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.
107:019 Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.
107:020 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
107:021 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:022 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
107:023 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
107:024 These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.
107:025 For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
107:026 They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
107:027 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit’s end.
107:028 Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
107:029 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
107:030 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
107:031 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:032 Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
107:033 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;
107:034 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
107:035 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.
107:036 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;
107:037 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.
107:038 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
107:039 Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.
107:040 He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.
107:041 Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.
107:042 The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
107:043 Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the Lord.
