Psalms 1071O give thanks to Jehovah, For he is good, for his loving kindness is forever. 2Let the redeemed of Jehovah say so, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the adversary, 3and gathered out of the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south. 4They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way. They found no city of habitation. 5Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. 6Then they cried to Jehovah in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses. 7He also led them by a straight way, that they might go to a city of habitation. 8O that men would praise Jehovah for his loving kindness, and for his wonderful works to the sons of men! 9For he satisfies the longing soul, and he fills the hungry soul with good, 10even those who sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron, 11because they rebelled against the words of God, and scorned the counsel of the Most High. 12Therefore he brought down their heart with labor. They fell down, and there was none to help. 13Then they cried to Jehovah in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. 14He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their bonds apart. 15O that men would praise Jehovah for his loving kindness, and for his wonderful works to the sons of men! 16For he has broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron apart. 17Fools are afflicted because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities. 18Their soul abhors all manner of food, and they draw near to the gates of death. 19Then they cry to Jehovah in their trouble, and he saves them out of their distresses. 20He sends his word, and heals them, and delivers them from their destructions. 21O that men would praise Jehovah for his loving kindness, and for his wonderful works to the sons of men! 22And let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with singing. 23Those who go down to the sea in ships, who do business in great waters, 24these men see the works of Jehovah, and his wonders in the deep. 25For he commands, and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up the waves of it. 26They mount up to the heavens, they go down again to the depths. Their soul melts away because of trouble. 27They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end. 28Then they cry to Jehovah in their trouble, and he brings them out of their distresses. 29He makes the storm a calm, so that the waves of it are still. 30Then they are glad because they are quiet, so he brings them to their desired haven. 31O that men would praise Jehovah for his loving kindness, and for his wonderful works to the sons of men! 32Let them also exalt him in the assembly of the people, and praise him in the seat of the elders. 33He turns rivers into a wilderness, and water springs into a thirsty ground, 34a fruitful land into a salt desert, for the wickedness of those who dwell therein. 35He turns a wilderness into a pool of water, and a dry land into water springs. 36And there he makes the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city of habitation, 37and sow fields, and plant vineyards, and get fruits of increase. 38He also blesses them, so that they are multiplied greatly, and he does not allow their cattle to decrease. 39Again, they are diminished and bowed down through oppression, trouble, and sorrow. 40He pours contempt upon rulers, and causes them to wander in the waste, where there is no way. 41Yet he sets a needy man on high from affliction, and makes him families like a flock. 42The upright shall see it, and be glad. And all iniquity shall stop her mouth. 43He who is wise will give heed to these things, and they will consider the loving kindnesses of Jehovah.
