Psalms Chapter 107 - New American Standard Bible

1. OH give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

2. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary

3. And gathered from the lands, From the east and from the west, From the north and from the [1] south.

4. They wandered in the wilderness in a [3] desert region; They did not find a way to [2] an inhabited city.

5. They were hungry [4] and thirsty; Their soul fainted within them.

6. Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He delivered them out of their distresses.

7. He led them also by a [6] straight way, To go to [5] an inhabited city.

8. Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His [7] wonders to the sons of men!

9. For He has satisfied the [8] thirsty soul, And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.

10. There were those who dwelt in darkness and in the shadow of death, Prisoners in [10] misery and [9] chains,

11. Because they had rebelled against the words of God And spurned the counsel of the Most High.

12. Therefore He humbled their heart with labor; They stumbled and there was none to help.

13. Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He saved them out of their distresses.

14. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death And broke their bands apart.

15. Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His [11] wonders to the sons of men!

16. For He has shattered gates of bronze And cut bars of iron asunder.

17. Fools, because of [12] their rebellious way, And because of their iniquities, were afflicted.

18. Their soul abhorred all kinds of food, And they drew near to the gates of death.

19. Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He saved them out of their distresses.

20. He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their [13] destructions.

21. Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His [14] wonders to the sons of men!

22. Let them also offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, And tell of His works with joyful singing.

23. Those who go down to the sea in ships, Who do business on great waters;

24. They have seen the works of the LORD, And His [15] wonders in the deep.

25. For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind, Which lifted up the waves [16] of the sea.

26. They rose up to the heavens, they went down to the depths; Their soul melted away in their misery.

27. They reeled and staggered like a drunken man, And [17] 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 caused the storm to be still, So that the waves [18] of the sea were hushed.

30. Then they were glad because they were quiet, So He guided them to their desired haven.

31. Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His [19] wonders to the sons of men!

32. Let them extol Him also in the congregation of the people, And praise Him at the seat of the elders.

33. He [21] changes rivers into a [20] wilderness And springs of water into a thirsty ground;

34. A fruitful land into a salt waste, Because of the wickedness of those who dwell in it.

35. He [23] changes a [22] 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 [24] an inhabited city,

37. And sow fields and plant vineyards, And [25] gather a fruitful harvest.

38. Also He blesses them and they multiply greatly, And He does not let their cattle decrease.

39. When they are diminished and bowed down Through oppression, misery and sorrow,

40. He pours contempt upon [26] princes And makes them wander in a pathless waste.

41. But He sets the needy [27] securely on high away from affliction, And makes his families like a flock.

42. The upright see it and are glad; But all unrighteousness shuts its mouth.

43. Who is wise? Let him give heed to these things, And consider the lovingkindnesses of the LORD.
