The LORD Sees the Distress of Men
Alleluiah.1Make acknowledgment to the lord for he is gracious, for [2is into 3the 4eon 1his mercy]! 2Let [5speak 1the ones 2having been ransomed 3by 4the lord]! whom he ransomed from out of the hand of the enemy. 3And from out of the places he gathered them; from the east, and west, and north, and the sea. 4They wandered in the wilderness in a waterless way; [3a city 4for a home 1they did not 2find]. 5Hungering and thirsting, their soul [2in 3them 1failed]. 6And they cried out to the lord in their being afflicted, and from their distresses he rescued them. 7And he guided them in [2way 1the straight], to go into a city of habitation. 8Let them make acknowledgment to the lord of his mercies, and of his wonders to the sons of men! 9For he fills [2soul 1the empty]; and the soul hungering he filled up with good things; 10even the ones sitting down in darkness and the shadow of death, being shackled in poorness and in iron; 11for they rebelled against the oracles of God; and the counsel of the highest they provoked. 12And [2was humbled 3with 4troubles 1their heart]; they weakened and there was no one helping. 13And they cried out to the lord in their being afflicted; and from out of their distresses he delivered them. 14And he led them from out of darkness and the shadow of death; and [2their bonds 1he tore up]. 15Let them make acknowledgment to the lord of his mercies, and his wonders to the sons of men! 16For he broke the gates of brass; and the bars of iron he fractured in pieces. 17He 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. 19And they cried out to the lord in their being afflicted; and [3from out of 4their distresses 1he delivered 2them]. 20He sent his word and healed them; and he rescued them from out of their corruptions. 21Let them make acknowledgment to the lord of his mercies, and his wonders to the sons of men! 22And let them sacrifice to him a sacrifice of praise! And let them declare his works in exultation! 23The men going down into the sea in boats, doing work in [2waters 1many]; 24these men beheld the works of the lord, and his wonders in the deep. 25He spoke, and [3is established 2wind 1the gale], and [2are raised up high 1its waves]. 26They ascend unto the heavens, and they go down unto the abysses; their soul [2in 3evils 1melts away]. 27They were disturbed; they were shaken as the one being intoxicated, and all their wisdom was swallowed down. 28And they cry out to the lord in their being afflicted; and [3from out of 4their distresses 1he leads 2them]. 29And he gave orders to the gale, and it stood as a breeze, and [2were quiet 1its waves]. 30And they were glad for they were stilled; and he guided them unto the harbor of their want. 31Let them make acknowledgment to the lord of his mercies, and his wonders to the sons of men! 32Let them exalt him in the assembly of people, and [2in 3the chair 4of the elders 1let them praise him]! 33He put rivers into a wilderness, and outlets of waters into a thirsty ground; 34a ground bearing fruit into brine, from the evils of the ones dwelling in it. 35He made a wilderness into lakes of waters; and [2ground 1a waterless] into outlets of waters. 36And he settled there ones hungering, and they stood together cities of habitation. 37And they sow fields, and plant vineyards, and they make fruit of produce. 38And he blessed them, and they were multiplied exceedingly, and [3their cattle 1he does not 2diminish]. 39And 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. 41But 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. 43Who is wise and will guard these things, and perceive the mercies of the lord?
