Fools, because of their rebellious way,
And because of their sins, were afflicted.
They detested all kinds of food,
And they drew near to the gates of death.
Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble,
And He saved them from their distresses.
He sent His word and healed them,
And rescued them from their destruction.
Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness,
And for His wonderful acts to the children of men!
And let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving,
And speak of His deeds with shouts of joy!
