1Praise the Lord, because he is good: for his mercie endureth for euer. 2Let them, which haue bene redeemed of the Lord, shewe how he hath deliuered them from the hand of the oppressour, 3And gathered them out of the lands, from the East and from the West, from the North and from the South. 4When they wandered in the desert and wildernesse out of the waie, and founde no citie to dwell in, 5Both hungrie and thirstie, their soule fainted in them. 6Then they cried vnto the Lord in their trouble, and he deliuered them from their distresse, 7And led them forth by the right way, that they might goe to a citie of habitation. 8Let them therefore confesse before ye Lord his louing kindnesse, and his wonderfull woorkes before the sonnes of men. 9For he satisfied the thirstie soule, and filled the hungrie soule with goodnesse. 10They that dwell in darkenesse and in the shadowe of death, being bounde in miserie and yron, 11Because they rebelled against the wordes of the Lord, and despised the counsell of the most High, 12When he humbled their heart with heauines, then they fell downe and there was no helper. 13Then they cried vnto the Lord in their trouble, and he deliuered them from their distresse. 14He brought them out of darkenes, and out of the shadowe of death, and brake their bandes asunder. 15Let them therefore cofesse before the Lord his louing kindnesse, and his wonderfull woorkes before the sonnes of men. 16For hee hath broken the gates of brasse, and brast the barres of yron asunder. 17Fooles by reason of their transgression, and because of their iniquities are afflicted. 18Their soule abhorreth al meat, and they are brought to deaths doore. 19Then they crie vnto the Lord in their trouble, and he deliuereth them from their distresse. 20He sendeth his worde and healeth them, and deliuereth them from their graues. 21Let them therefore cofesse before the Lord his louing kindnesse, and his wonderful workes before the sonnes of men, 22And let them offer sacrifices of praise, and declare his workes with reioycing. 23They that goe downe to the sea in ships, and occupie by the great waters, 24They see the woorkes of the Lord, and his wonders in the deepe. 25For he commaundeth and raiseth the stormie winde, and it lifteth vp the waues thereof. 26They mount vp to the heauen, and descend to ye deepe, so that their soule melteth for trouble. 27They are tossed to and from, and stagger like a drunken man, and all their cunning is gone. 28Then they crie vnto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresse. 29He turneth the storme to calme, so that the waues thereof are still. 30When they are quieted, they are glad, and hee bringeth them vnto the hauen, where they would be. 31Let them therfore confesse before the Lord his louing kindnesse, and his wonderfull woorkes before the sonnes of men. 32And let them exalt him in the Congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the Elders. 33He turneth the floodes into a wildernesse, and the springs of waters into drinesse, 34And a fruitfull land into barrennes for the wickednes of them that dwell therein. 35Againe hee turneth the wildernesse into pooles of water, and the drie lande into water springs. 36And there he placeth the hungrie, and they builde a citie to dwell in, 37And sowe the fieldes, and plant vineyardes, which bring foorth fruitfull increase. 38For he blesseth them, and they multiplie exceedingly, and he diminisheth not their cattell. 39Againe men are diminished, and brought lowe by oppression, euill and sorowe. 40He powreth contempt vpon princes, and causeth them to erre in desert places out of the way. 41Yet he raiseth vp the poore out of miserie, and maketh him families like a flocke of sheepe. 42The righteous shall see it, and reioyce, and all iniquitie shall stoppe her mouth. 43Who is wise that hee may obserue these things? for they shall vnderstand the louing kindnesse of the Lord.
