Psalm 107

THANKSGIVING FOR GOD’S DELIVERANCE

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;

his faithful love endures forever.y

Let the redeemed of the Lord proclaim

that he has redeemed them from the power of the foez

and has gathered them from the lands—

from the east and the west,

from the north and the south.aa

Some* wandered in the desolate wilderness,

finding no way to a city where they could live.ab

They were hungry and thirsty;

their spirits failedA within them.a

Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;

he rescued them from their distress.b

He led them by the right path

to go to a city where they could live.c

Let them give thanks to the Lord

for his faithful love

and his wondrous works for all humanity.d

For he has satisfied the thirsty

and filled the hungry with good things.e

10 Others sat in darkness and gloom*

prisoners in cruel chainsf

11 because they rebelled against God’s commands

and despised the counsel of the Most High.g

12 He broke their spiritsC with hard labor;

they stumbled, and there was no one to help.h

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

he saved them from their distress.i

14 He brought them out of darkness and gloom

and broke their chains apart.j

15 Let them give thanks to the Lord

for his faithful love

and his wondrous works for all humanity.k

16 For he has broken down the bronze gates

and cut through the iron bars.l

17 Fools suffered affliction

because of their rebellious ways and their iniquities.m

18 They loathed all food

and came near the gates of death.n

1Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;

he saved them from their distress.o

20 He sent his word and healed them;

he rescued them from the Pit.p

21 Let them give thanks to the Lord

for his faithful love

and his wondrous works for all humanity.q

22 Let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving

and announce his works with shouts of joy.r

23 Others went to sea in ships,

conducting trade on the vast water.s

24 They saw the Lord’s works,

his wondrous works in the deep.t

25 He spoke and raised a stormy wind

that stirred up the waves of the sea.D,u

26 Rising up to the sky, sinking down to the depths,

their courageE melting away in anguish,v

27 they reeled and staggered like a drunkard,

and all their skill was useless.w

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

and he brought them out of their distress.x

29 He stilled the storm to a whisper,

and the waves of the seaF were hushed.y

30 They rejoiced when the wavesG grew quiet.

Then he guided them to the harbor they longed for.z

31 Let them give thanks to the Lord

for his faithful love

and his wondrous works for all humanity.aa

32 Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people

and praise him in the council of the elders.ab

33 He turns rivers into desert,

springs into thirsty ground,ac

34 and fruitful land into salty wasteland,

because of the wickedness of its inhabitants.ad

35 He turns a desert into a pool,

dry land into springs.ae

36 He causes the hungry to settle there,

and they establish a city where they can live.af

37 They sow fields and plant vineyards

that yield a fruitful harvest.ag

38 He blesses them, and they multiply greatly;ah

he does not let their livestock decrease.a

39 When they are diminished and are humbled

by cruel oppression and sorrow,b

40 he pours contempt on noblesc

and makes them wander in a trackless wasteland.d

41 But he lifts the needy out of their sufferinge

and makes their families multiply like flocks.f

42 The upright see it and rejoice,g

and all injustice shuts its mouth.h

43 Let whoever is wise pay attention to these things

and consider the Lord’s acts of faithful love.i

About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
