Psalms 107

PSALM 107

The LORD Sees the Distress of Men

Alleluiah.

Make acknowledgment to the  lord for he is gracious, for [2is into 3the 4eon 1his mercy]! Let [5speak 1the ones 2having been ransomed 3by 4the  lord]! whom he ransomed from out of the hand of the enemy. And from out of the places he gathered them; from the east, and west, and north, and the sea. They wandered in the wilderness in a waterless way; [3a city 4for a home 1they did not 2find]. Hungering and thirsting, their soul [2in 3them 1failed]. And they cried out to the  lord in their being afflicted, and from their distresses he rescued them. And he guided them in [2way 1the straight], to go into a city of habitation. Let them make acknowledgment to the  lord of his mercies, and of his wonders to the sons of men! For he fills [2soul 1the empty]; and the soul hungering he filled up with good things; 10 even the ones sitting down in darkness and the shadow of death, being shackled in poorness and in iron; 11 for they rebelled against the oracles of God; and the counsel of the highest they provoked. 12 And [2was humbled 3with 4troubles 1their heart]; they weakened and there was no one helping. 13 And they cried out to the  lord in their being afflicted; and from out of their distresses he delivered them. 14 And he led them from out of darkness and the shadow of death; and [2their bonds 1he tore up]. 15 Let them make acknowledgment to the  lord of his mercies, and his wonders to the sons of men! 16 For he broke the gates of brass; and the bars of iron he fractured in pieces. 17 He took hold of them from out of the way of their lawlessnesses; for on account of their lawlessnesses they were humbled. 18 [3every 4food 2abhorred 1Their soul], and they approached unto the gates of death. 19 And they cried out to the  lord in their being afflicted; and [3from out of 4their distresses 1he delivered 2them]. 20 He sent his word and healed them; and he rescued them from out of their corruptions. 21 Let them make acknowledgment to the  lord of his mercies, and his wonders to the sons of men! 22 And let them sacrifice to him a sacrifice of praise! And let them declare his works in exultation! 23 The men going down into the sea in boats, doing work in [2waters 1many]; 24 these men beheld the works of the  lord, and his wonders in the deep. 25 He spoke, and [3is established 2wind 1the gale], and [2are raised up high 1its waves]. 26 They ascend unto the heavens, and they go down unto the abysses; their soul [2in 3evils 1melts away]. 27 They were disturbed; they were shaken as the one being intoxicated, and all their wisdom was swallowed down. 28 And they cry out to the  lord in their being afflicted; and [3from out of 4their distresses 1he leads 2them]. 29 And he gave orders to the gale, and it stood as a breeze, and [2were quiet 1its waves]. 30 And they were glad for they were stilled; and he guided them unto the harbor of their want. 31 Let them make acknowledgment to the  lord of his mercies, and his wonders to the sons of men! 32 Let them exalt him in the assembly of people, and [2in 3the chair 4of the elders 1let them praise him]! 33 He put rivers into a wilderness, and outlets of waters into a thirsty ground; 34 a ground bearing fruit into brine, from the evils of the ones dwelling in it. 35 He made a wilderness into lakes of waters; and [2ground 1a waterless] into outlets of waters. 36 And he settled there ones hungering, and they stood together cities of habitation. 37 And they sow fields, and plant vineyards, and they make fruit of produce. 38 And he blessed them, and they were multiplied exceedingly, and [3their cattle 1he does not 2diminish]. 39 And they were made few and were maltreated by the affliction of evils and grief. 40 [2was poured out 1Contempt] upon their rulers, and he wandered them in an untrodden place and no street. 41 But he helps the needy from out of poorness; and he made [2as 3flocks 1families]. 42 [2shall see 1The upright] and be glad; and all lawlessness shall obstruct its mouth. 43 Who is wise and will guard these things, and perceive the mercies of the  lord?
