He turned rivers into a desert, flowing springs into thirsty ground,
King James Bible
He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;
American Standard Version
He turneth rivers into a wilderness, And watersprings into a thirsty ground;
Young's Literal Translation
He maketh rivers become a wilderness, And fountains of waters become dry land.
Psalm 107:33 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He turneth rivers into a wilderness - After having, as above, illustrated the state of the Jews in their captivity, and the deliverance which God wrought for them, he now turns to the general conduct of God in reference to the poor and needy; and his gracious Interpositions in their behalf, the providential supply of their wants, and his opposition to their oppressors. On account of the wickedness of men, he sometimes changes a fruitful land into a desert. See the general state of Egypt in the present time: once a fertile land; now an arid, sandy wilderness. Again, by his blessing on honest industry, he has changed deserts into highly fertile ground. And, as for the wickedness of their inhabitants, many lands are cursed and rendered barren; so, when a people acknowledge him in all their ways, he blesses their toil, gives them rain and fruitful seasons, and fills their hearts with joy and gladness.
