Psalms 107
ICB
107
God Saves from Many Dangers
1Thank the Lord because he is good.
His love continues forever.
2That is what the people the Lord has saved should say.
They are the ones he has saved from the enemy.
3He has gathered them from other lands,
from east and west, north and south.
4Some people had wandered in the desert lands.
They found no city to live in.
5They were hungry and thirsty.
They were discouraged.
6In their misery they cried out to the Lord.
And he saved them from their troubles.
7He led them on a straight road
to a city where they could live.
8Let them give thanks to the Lord for his love
and for the miracles he does for people.
9He satisfies the thirsty.
He fills up the hungry.
10Some sat in gloom and darkness.
They were prisoners suffering in chains.
11They had turned against the words of God.
They had refused the advice of God Most High.
12So he broke their pride by hard work.
They stumbled, and no one helped.
13In their misery they cried out to the Lord.
And he saved them from their troubles.
14He brought them out of their gloom and darkness.
He broke their chains.
15Let them give thanks to the Lord for his love
and for the miracles he does for people.
16He breaks down bronze gates.
And he cuts apart iron bars.
17Some became fools who turned against God.
They suffered for the evil they did.
18They refused to eat anything.
So they almost died.
19In their misery they cried out to the Lord.
And he saved them from their troubles.
20God gave the command and healed them.
So they were saved from dying.
21Let them give thanks to the Lord for his love
and for the miracles he does for people.
22Let them offer sacrifices to thank him.
With joy they should tell what he has done.
23Others went out to sea in ships.
They did business on the great oceans.
24They saw what the Lord could do.
They saw the miracles he did.
25He spoke, and a storm came up.
It blew up high waves.
26The ships tossed as high as the sky and fell low in the waves.
The storm was so bad the men lost their courage.
27They stumbled and fell like men who were drunk.
They did not know what to do.
28In their misery they cried out to the Lord.
And he saved them from their troubles.
29He made the storm be still.
He calmed the waves.
30They were happy that it was quiet.
And God guided them to the port they wanted.
31Let them give thanks to the Lord for his love
and for the miracles he does for people.
32Let them praise his greatness in the meeting of the people.
They should praise him in the meeting of the elders.
33He changed rivers into a desert,
and springs of water into dry ground.
34He made fertile land salty
because the people there did evil.
35He changed the desert into pools of water
and dry ground into springs of water.
36He had the hungry settle there.
They built a city to live in.
37They planted seeds in the fields and vineyards.
And they had a good harvest.
38God blessed them, and they grew in number.
Their cattle did not become fewer.
39Because of disaster, troubles and sadness,
their families grew smaller and weaker.
40He showed he was displeased with their important men.
He made them wander in a pathless desert.
41But he lifted the poor out of their suffering.
And he made their families grow like flocks of sheep.
42Good people see this and are happy.
But the wicked say nothing.
43Whoever is wise will remember these things.
He will think about the love of the Lord.
