Psalms 107 (asv)

Psalms 107 (asv)

107:1O give thanks unto Jehovah;

For he is good;

For his lovingkindness endureth for ever.

107:2Let the redeemed of Jehovah say so,

Whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the adversary,

107:3And gathered out of the lands,

From the east and from the west,

From the north and from the south.

107:4They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way;

They found no city of habitation.

107:5Hungry and thirsty,

Their soul fainted in them.

107:6Then they cried unto Jehovah in their trouble,

And he delivered them out of their distresses,

107:7He led them also by a straight way,

That they might go to a city of habitation.

107:8Oh that men would praise Jehovah for his lovingkindness,

And for his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:9For he satisfieth the longing soul,

And the hungry soul he filleth with good.

107:10Such as sat in darkness and in the shadow of death,

Being bound in affliction and iron,

107:11Because they rebelled against the words of God,

And contemned the counsel of the Most High:

107:12Therefore he brought down their heart with labor;

They fell down, and there was none to help.

107:13Then they cried unto Jehovah in their trouble,

And he saved them out of their distresses.

107:14He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death,

And brake their bonds in sunder.

107:15Oh that men would praise Jehovah for his lovingkindness,

And for his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:16For he hath broken the gates of brass,

And cut the bars of iron in sunder.

107:17Fools because of their transgression,

And because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

107:18Their soul abhorreth all manner of food;

And they draw near unto the gates of death.

107:19Then they cry unto Jehovah in their trouble,

And he saveth them out of their distresses.

107:20He sendeth his word, and healeth them,

And delivereth them from their destructions.

107:21Oh that men would praise Jehovah for his lovingkindness,

And for his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:22And let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving,

And declare his works with singing.

107:23They that go down to the sea in ships,

That do business in great waters;

107:24These see the works of Jehovah,

And his wonders in the deep.

107:25For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind,

Which lifteth up the waves thereof.

107:26They mount up to the heavens, they go down again to the depths:

Their soul melteth away because of trouble.

107:27They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,

And are at their wits' end.

107:28Then they cry unto Jehovah in their trouble,

And he bringeth them out of their distresses.

107:29He maketh the storm a calm,

So that the waves thereof are still.

107:30Then are they glad because they are quiet;

So he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

107:31Oh that men would praise Jehovah for his lovingkindness,

And for his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:32Let them exalt him also in the assembly of the people,

And praise him in the seat of the elders.

107:33He turneth rivers into a wilderness,

And watersprings into a thirsty ground;

107:34A fruitful land into a salt desert,

For the wickedness of them that dwell therein.

107:35He turneth a wilderness into a pool of water,

And a dry land into watersprings.

107:36And there he maketh the hungry to dwell,

That they may prepare a city of habitation,

107:37And sow fields, and plant vineyards,

And get them fruits of increase.

107:38He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly;

And he suffereth not their cattle to decrease.

107:39Again, they are diminished and bowed down

Through oppression, trouble, and sorrow.

107:40He poureth contempt upon princes,

And causeth them to wander in the waste, where there is no way.

107:41Yet setteth he the needy on high from affliction,

And maketh him families like a flock.

107:42The upright shall see it, and be glad;

And all iniquity shall stop her mouth.

107:43Whoso is wise will give heed to these things;

And they will consider the lovingkindnesses of Jehovah.
