BOOK V
(Psalms 107–150)
Thanksgiving for God’s Deliverance
1Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
His faithful love endures forever. # 1Ch 16:34; Ps 100:5; 106:1
2Let the redeemed of the Lord proclaim
that He has redeemed them from the hand of the foe # Ps 78:42; 106:10
3and has gathered them from the lands —
from the east and the west,
from the north and the south. # Is 11:12; 43:5; Ezk 20:34
4Some # Lit They wandered in the desolate wilderness,
finding no way to a city where they could live. # Nm 14:33; 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; 34:10; Lk 1:53
10Others # Lit They sat in darkness and gloom # Or the shadow of death
prisoners in cruel chains # Ps 102:20; Is 42:7; Lk 1:79
11because they rebelled against God’s commands
and despised the counsel of the Most High. # 2Ch 36:16; Ps 78:40; 106:7
12He broke their spirits # Lit hearts with hard labor;
they stumbled, and there was no one to help. # Ex 6:9; Dt 26:6; Is 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 33:28,30; Ps 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; 105:43; 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 93:3-4; Ezk 26:19
26Rising up to the sky, sinking down to the depths,
their courage # Lit souls melting away in anguish, # Ps 22:14; 119:28
27they reeled and staggered like drunken men,
and all their skill was useless. # Jb 12:25; Is 29:9
28Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
and He brought them out of their distress. # Jnh 1:14; Mk 4:39
29He stilled the storm to a murmur,
and the waves of the sea # Lit of them were hushed. # Ps 89:9; Mt 8:26; Lk 8:24
30They rejoiced when the waves # Lit when they grew quiet.
Then He guided them to the harbor they longed for. # Ex 15:13; Ps 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 22:22,25
33He turns rivers into desert,
springs of water into thirsty ground, # Is 42:15; 50:2
34and fruitful land into salty wasteland,
because of the wickedness of its inhabitants. # Gn 19:24-28; Dt 29:23
35He turns a desert into a pool of water,
dry land into springs of water. # Is 35:6-7; 41:18
36He causes the hungry to settle there,
and they establish a city where they can live. # Ps 60:9; 146:7
37They sow fields and plant vineyards
that yield a fruitful harvest. # Is 65:21; Am 9:14
38He blesses them, and they multiply greatly; # Gn 12:2; Ex 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 2:8; Ps 113:7-8
and makes their families multiply like flocks. # Jb 21:11
42The upright see it and rejoice, # Jb 22:19; Ps 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 64:9; Hs 14:9
