2Let the redeemed of the Lord proclaim
that He has redeemed them from the hand of the foe #Ps 78:42|NoBook| 106:10
3and has gathered them from the lands —
from the east and the west,
from the north and the south. #Is 11:12|NoBook| 43:5Ezk 20:34
4Some # Lit They wandered in the desolate wilderness,
finding no way to a city where they could live. #Nm 14:33|NoBook| 32:13
5They were hungry and thirsty;
their spirits failed # Lit their soul fainted within them. #Ps 77:3
6Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
He rescued them from their distress. #Ps 106:44
7He led them by the right path
to go to a city where they could live. #Jr 31:9
8Let them give thanks to the Lord
for His faithful love
and His wonderful works for all humanity. #Ps 75:1
9For He has satisfied the thirsty
and filled the hungry with good things. #Ps 22:26|NoBook| 34:10Lk 1:53
10Others # Lit They sat in darkness and gloom # Or the shadow of death
prisoners in cruel chains #Ps 102:20Is 42:7Lk 1:79
11because they rebelled against God’s commands
and despised the counsel of the Most High. #2Ch 36:16Ps 78:40|NoBook| 106:7
12He broke their spirits # Lit hearts with hard labor;
they stumbled, and there was no one to help. #Ex 6:9Dt 26:6Is 14:3
13Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
He saved them from their distress. #Ex 2:23-25
14He brought them out of darkness and gloom # Or the shadow of death
and broke their chains apart. #Jr 2:20
15Let them give thanks to the Lord
for His faithful love
and His wonderful works for all humanity. #Ps 75:1
16For He has broken down the bronze gates
and cut through the iron bars. #Is 45:1-2
17Fools suffered affliction
because of their rebellious ways and their sins. #Jr 30:14-15
18They loathed all food
and came near the gates of death. #Jb 33:20
19Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
He saved them from their distress. #Nm 21:7-9
20He sent His word and healed them;
He rescued them from the Pit. #Jb 33:28Ps 30:3
21Let them give thanks to the Lord
for His faithful love
and His wonderful works for all humanity. #Ps 75:1
22Let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving
and announce His works with shouts of joy. #Ps 9:11|NoBook| 105:43|NoBook| 116:17
23Others # Lit They went to sea in ships,
conducting trade on the vast waters. #Is 42:10
24They saw the Lord’s works,
His wonderful works in the deep. #Is 33:21
25He spoke and raised a tempest
that stirred up the waves of the sea. # Lit of it #Ps 93:3-4Ezk 26:19
26Rising up to the sky, sinking down to the depths,
their courage # Lit souls melting away in anguish, #Ps 22:14|NoBook| 119:28
27they reeled and staggered like drunken men,
and all their skill was useless. #Jb 12:25Is 29:9
28Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
and He brought them out of their distress. #Jnh 1:14Mk 4:39
29He stilled the storm to a murmur,
and the waves of the sea # Lit of them were hushed. #Ps 89:9Mt 8:26Lk 8:24
30They rejoiced when the waves # Lit when they grew quiet.
Then He guided them to the harbor they longed for. #Ex 15:13Ps 78:72
31Let them give thanks to the Lord
for His faithful love
and His wonderful works for all humanity. #Ps 75:1
32Let them exalt Him in the assembly of the people
and praise Him in the council of the elders. #Ps 22:22
33He turns rivers into desert,
springs of water into thirsty ground, #Is 42:15|NoBook| 50:2
34and fruitful land into salty wasteland,
because of the wickedness of its inhabitants. #Gn 19:24-28Dt 29:23
35He turns a desert into a pool of water,
dry land into springs of water. #Is 35:6-7|NoBook| 41:18
36He causes the hungry to settle there,
and they establish a city where they can live. #Ps 60:9|NoBook| 146:7
37They sow fields and plant vineyards
that yield a fruitful harvest. #Is 65:21Am 9:14
38He blesses them, and they multiply greatly; #Gn 12:2Ex 1:7
He does not let their livestock decrease. #Dt 7:14
39When they are diminished and are humbled
by cruel oppression and sorrow, #Ps 44:25
40He pours contempt on nobles #Jb 12:21
and makes them wander in a trackless wasteland. #Jb 12:24
41But He lifts the needy out of their suffering #1Sm 2:8Ps 113:7-8
and makes their families multiply like flocks. #Jb 21:11
42The upright see it and rejoice, #Jb 22:19Ps 64:10
and all injustice shuts its mouth. #Jb 5:16
43Let whoever is wise pay attention to these things
and consider # Lit and let them consider the Lord’s acts of faithful love. #Ps 64:9Hs 14:9
