Psalms 107

BOOK 5

The  Lord Delivers Men from Manifold Troubles.

Oh a give thanks to the  Lord, for b He is good,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Let c the redeemed of the  Lord say so,
Whom He has d redeemed from the hand of the adversary
And e gathered from the lands,
From the east and from the west,
From the north and from the
Lit sea
south.

They g wandered in the wilderness in a
Lit waste
desert region;
They did not find a way to
Or a habitable city; lit a city of habitation
an inhabited j city.
They were hungry
Lit also
and thirsty;
Their l soul fainted within them.
Then they m cried out to the  Lord in their trouble;
He delivered them out of their distresses.
He led them also by a
Or level
,
o straight way,
To go to
Or a habitable city; lit a city of habitation
,
q an inhabited city.
r Let them give thanks to the  Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His
I.e. wonderful acts
wonders to the sons of men!
For He has t satisfied the
Or parched
thirsty soul,
And the v hungry soul He has filled with what is good.

10 There were those who w dwelt in darkness and in the shadow of death,
x Prisoners in
Lit affliction
misery and
Lit irons
chains,
11 Because they had aa rebelled against the words of God
And ab spurned the ac counsel of the Most High.
12 Therefore He humbled their heart with labor;
They stumbled and there was ad none to help.
13 Then they ae cried out to the  Lord in their trouble;
He saved them out of their distresses.
14 He af brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death
And ag broke their bands apart.
15  ah Let them give thanks to the  Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His
I.e. wonderful acts
wonders to the sons of men!
16 For He has aj shattered gates of bronze
And cut bars of iron asunder.

17 Fools, because of
Lit the way of their transgression
their rebellious way,
And al because of their iniquities, were afflicted.
18 Their am soul abhorred all kinds of food,
And they an drew near to the ao gates of death.
19 Then they cried out to the  Lord in their trouble;
He saved them out of their distresses.
20 He ap sent His word and aq healed them,
And ar delivered them from their
Or pits
destructions.
21  at Let them give thanks to the  Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His
I.e. wonderful acts
wonders to the sons of men!
22 Let them also offer av sacrifices of thanksgiving,
And aw tell of His works with joyful singing.

23 Those who ax go down to the sea in ships,
Who do business on great waters;
24 They have seen the works of the  Lord,
And His
I.e. wonderful acts
wonders in the deep.
25 For He az spoke and raised up a ba stormy wind,
Which bb lifted up the waves
Lit of it
of the sea.
26 They rose up to the heavens, they went down to the depths;
Their soul bd melted away in their misery.
27 They reeled and be staggered like a drunken man,
And
Lit all their wisdom was swallowed up
were at their wits’ end.
28 Then they cried to the  Lord in their trouble,
And He brought them out of their distresses.
29 He bg caused the storm to be still,
So that the waves
Lit of it
of the sea were hushed.
30 Then they were glad because they were quiet,
So He guided them to their desired haven.
31  bi Let them give thanks to the  Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His
I.e. wonderful acts
,
bk wonders to the sons of men!
32 Let them bl extol Him also bm in the congregation of the people,
And bn praise Him at the seat of the elders.

33 He
Or turns
,
bp changes rivers into a
Or desert
wilderness
And springs of water into a thirsty ground;
34 A br fruitful land into a bs salt waste,
Because of the wickedness of those who dwell in it.
35 He
Or turns
,
bu changes a
Or desert
wilderness into a pool of water
And a dry land into springs of water;
36 And there He makes the hungry to dwell,
So that they may establish
Or a habitable city; lit a city of habitation
,
bx an inhabited city,
37 And sow fields and by plant vineyards,
And
Lit acquire fruits of yield
gather a fruitful harvest.
38 Also He blesses them and they ca multiply greatly,
And He cb does not let their cattle decrease.

39 When they are cc diminished and cd bowed down
Through oppression, misery and sorrow,
40 He ce pours contempt upon
Or nobles
princes
And cg makes them wander ch in a pathless waste.
41 But He ci sets the needy
Lit in an inaccessibly high place
securely on high away from affliction,
And ck makes his families like a flock.
42 The cl upright see it and are glad;
But all cm unrighteousness shuts its mouth.
43 Who is cn wise? Let him give heed to these things,
And consider the co lovingkindnesses of the  Lord.
