Psalms 107 : 21 - 43

Chapter 107

21Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
22Let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, And declare His works with rejoicing.
23Those who go down to the sea in ships, Who do business on great waters,
24They see the works of the LORD, And His wonders in the deep.
25For He commands and raises the stormy wind, Which lifts up the waves of the sea.
26They mount up to the heavens, They go down again to the depths; Their soul melts because of trouble.
27They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, And are at their wits' end.
28Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble, And He brings them out of their distresses.
29He calms the storm, So that its waves are still.
30Then they are glad because they are quiet; So He guides them to their desired haven.
31Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
32Let them exalt Him also in the assembly of the people, And praise Him in the company of the elders.
33He turns rivers into a wilderness, And the watersprings into dry ground;
34A fruitful land into barrenness, For the wickedness of those who dwell in it.
35He turns a wilderness into pools of water, And dry land into watersprings.
36There He makes the hungry dwell, That they may establish a city for a dwelling place,
37And sow fields and plant vineyards, That they may yield a fruitful harvest.
38He also blesses them, and they multiply greatly; And He does not let their cattle decrease.
39When they are diminished and brought low Through oppression, affliction and sorrow,
40He pours contempt on princes, And causes them to wander in the wilderness where there is no way;
41Yet He sets the poor on high, far from affliction, And makes their families like a flock.
42The righteous see it and rejoice, And all iniquity stops its mouth.
43Whoever is wise will observe these things, And they will understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.
