Psalm 107

107
Book Five
Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say So
1 # See Ps. 105:1 Oh give thanks to the Lord, #See Ps. 100:5for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!
2Let #Ps. 106:10 the redeemed of the Lord say so,
whom he has #Isa. 62:12; 63:4redeemed from trouble#107:2 Or from the hand of the foe
3and #Ps. 106:47; Deut. 30:3; Isa. 11:12; 43:5; 56:8; Jer. 29:14; 31:8, 10; Ezek. 20:34, 41; 39:27gathered in from the lands,
from the east and from the west,
from the north and from the south.
4Some #ver. 40; [Deut. 32:10] wandered in desert wastes,
finding no way #ver. 36to a city to dwell in;
5hungry and thirsty,
their soul #Ps. 77:3fainted within them.
6Then they #ver. 13, 19, 28; Ps. 106:44cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
7He led them by #Ezra 8:21 a straight way
till they reached #[See ver. 4 above]a city to dwell in.
8 # ver. 15, 21, 31 Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
9For he #[Ps. 34:10; 146:7] satisfies the longing soul,
# Luke 1:53 and the hungry soul he fills with good things.
10 # Luke 1:79; [Isa. 42:7; 49:9; Mic. 7:8] Some sat in darkness and in #ver. 14; Job 10:21 the shadow of death,
prisoners in #[Job 36:8]affliction and in irons,
11for they #Ps. 106:7, 33, 43; See Ps. 78:40 had rebelled against the words of God,
and #Prov. 1:30; 5:12; 15:5; [Deut. 31:20; Luke 7:30]spurned the counsel of the Most High.
12So he bowed their hearts down with hard labor;
they fell down, #See Ps. 22:11with none to help.
13 # ver. 6, 19, 28 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
14He brought them out of #See ver. 10 darkness and the shadow of death,
and #[Ps. 2:3]burst their bonds apart.
15 # ver. 8, 21, 31 Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
16For he #Isa. 45:2shatters the doors of bronze
and cuts in two the bars of iron.
17Some were #Prov. 1:7; 14:9fools through their sinful ways,
and because of their iniquities suffered affliction;
18 # Job 33:20 they loathed any kind of food,
and they #Ps. 88:3; Job 33:22 drew near to #See Job 38:17the gates of death.
19 # ver. 6, 13, 28 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
20He #Ps. 147:15, 18; [Matt. 8:8] sent out his word and #Ps. 30:2, 3; 2 Kgs. 20:5; Job 33:29, 30 healed them,
and #Ps. 103:4delivered them from their destruction.
21 # ver. 8, 15, 31 Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
22And let them #See Ps. 50:14 offer sacrifices of thanksgiving,
and #Ps. 9:11; See Ps. 118:17 tell of his deeds in #Ps. 105:43songs of joy!
23Some #Isa. 42:10went down to the sea in ships,
doing business on the great waters;
24they saw the deeds of the Lord,
his wondrous works in the deep.
25For he #Ps. 105:31, 34 commanded and #Ps. 148:8; Jonah 1:4raised the stormy wind,
which lifted up the waves of the sea.
26They mounted up to heaven; they went down to the depths;
their courage #Ps. 119:28; See Ps. 22:14melted away in their evil plight;
27they reeled and #Isa. 24:20; 29:9; See Job 12:25 staggered like drunken men
and #Isa. 19:3were at their wits’ end.#107:27 Hebrew and all their wisdom was swallowed up
28 # ver. 6, 13, 19 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
29He #See Ps. 65:7made the storm be still,
and the waves of the sea were hushed.
30Then they were glad that the waters#107:30 Hebrew they were quiet,
and he brought them to their desired haven.
31 # ver. 8, 15, 21 Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
32Let them #See Ps. 99:5 extol him in #Ps. 22:22, 25the congregation of the people,
and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
33He #Isa. 50:2; [Isa. 42:15]turns rivers into a desert,
springs of water into thirsty ground,
34 # [Gen. 13:10; 14:3; Deut. 29:23]; See Gen. 19:24-28 a fruitful land into a salty waste,
because of the evil of its inhabitants.
35He #Ps. 114:8; Isa. 41:18; [Isa. 35:6, 7; 43:19, 20] turns a desert into pools of water,
# Job 38:26, 27 a parched land into springs of water.
36And there he lets the hungry dwell,
and they establish #ver. 4, 7a city to live in;
37they sow fields and plant vineyards
and get a fruitful yield.
38 # Gen. 12:2; 17:20; Ex. 1:7 By his blessing they multiply greatly,
and he does not let their livestock diminish.
39When they are diminished and brought low
through oppression, evil, and sorrow,
40 # Job 12:21 he pours contempt on princes
and #Job 12:24 makes them wander #[Deut. 32:10]in trackless wastes;
41but #Ps. 113:7, 8; 1 Sam. 2:8 he raises up the needy out of affliction
and #Job 21:11makes their families like flocks.
42 # See Job 22:19 The upright see it and are glad,
and #See Ps. 63:11all wickedness shuts its mouth.
43 # [Ps. 64:9; Jer. 9:12; Hos. 14:9] Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things;
let them consider the steadfast love of the Lord.
