Psalm 107

Thanksgiving to the Lord For His Great Works of Deliverance

1 Oh, agive thanks to the Lord, for He is good!

For His 1mercy endures forever.

2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,

Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,

3 And bgathered out of the lands,

From the east and from the west,

From the north and from the south.

4 They wandered in cthe wilderness in a desolate way;

They found no city to dwell in.

5 Hungry and thirsty,

Their soul fainted in them.

6 dThen they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,

And He delivered them out of their distresses.

7 And He led them forth by the eright way,

That they might go to a city for a dwelling place.

8 fOh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,

And for His wonderful works to the children of men!

9 For gHe satisfies the longing soul,

And fills the hungry soul with goodness.

10 Those who hsat in darkness and in the shadow of death,

iBound 2in affliction and irons—

11 Because they jrebelled against the words of God,

And 3despised kthe counsel of the Most High,

12 Therefore He brought down their heart with labor;

They fell down, and there was lnone to help.

13 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,

And He saved them out of their distresses.

14 mHe brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death,

And broke their chains in pieces.

15 Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,

And for His wonderful works to the children of men!

16 For He has nbroken the gates of bronze,

And cut the bars of iron in two.

17 Fools, obecause of their transgression,

And because of their iniquities, were afflicted.

18 pTheir soul abhorred all manner of food,

And they qdrew near to the gates of death.

19 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,

And He saved them out of their distresses.

20 rHe sent His word and shealed them,

And tdelivered them from their destructions.

21 Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,

And for His wonderful works to the children of men!

22 uLet them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving,

And vdeclare His works with 4rejoicing.

23 Those who go down to the sea in ships,

Who do business on great waters,

24 They see the works of the Lord,

And His wonders in the deep.

25 For He commands and wraises the stormy wind,

Which lifts up the waves of the sea.

26 They mount up to the heavens,

They go down again to the depths;

xTheir soul melts because of trouble.

27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,

And 5are at their wits’ end.

28 Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble,

And He brings them out of their distresses.

29 yHe calms the storm,

So that its waves are still.

30 Then they are glad because they are quiet;

So He guides them to their desired haven.

31 zOh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,

And for His wonderful works to the children of men!

32 Let them exalt Him also ain the assembly of the people,

And praise Him in the company of the elders.

33 He bturns rivers into a wilderness,

And the watersprings into dry ground;

34 A cfruitful land into 6barrenness,

For the wickedness of those who dwell in it.

35 dHe turns a wilderness into pools of water,

And dry land into watersprings.

36 There He makes the hungry dwell,

That they may establish a city for a dwelling place,

37 And sow fields and plant vineyards,

That they may yield a fruitful harvest.

38 eHe also blesses them, and they multiply greatly;

And He does not let their cattle fdecrease.

39 When they are gdiminished and brought low

Through oppression, affliction and sorrow,

40 hHe pours contempt on princes,

And causes them to wander in the wilderness where there is no way;

41 iYet He sets the poor on high, far from affliction,

And jmakes their families like a flock.

42 kThe righteous see it and rejoice,

And all liniquity stops its mouth.

43 mWhoever is wise will observe these things,

And they will understand the lovingkindness of the Lord.
