107:1
O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
107:2
Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
107:3
And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
107:4
They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.
107:5
Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
107:6
Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.
107:7
And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
107:8
Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:9
For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
107:10
Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;
107:11
Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:
107:12
Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.
107:13
Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.
107:14
He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.
107:15
Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:16
For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.
107:17
Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.
107:18
Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.
107:19
Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.
107:20
He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
107:21
Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:22
And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
107:23
They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
107:24
These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.
107:25
For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
107:26
They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
107:27
They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit’s end.
107:28
Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
107:29
He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
107:30
Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
107:31
Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:32
Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
107:33
He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;
107:34
A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
107:35
He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.
107:36
And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;
107:37
And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.
107:38
He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.

Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.
107:40
He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.
107:41
Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.
107:42
The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
107:43
Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.
