Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1Give thanks to Lord Jehovah, because he is good, and his grace is for eternity.
2The redeemed of Lord Jehovah will say that he saved them from the hand of the oppressor.
3From all the lands he gathered them- from the East and from the West, from the North and from the Sea.
4And they were lost in the wilderness of the deserts and they did not find the road of an inhabited city.
5They were hungry and thirsty and their souls were agitated.
6They begged of Lord Jehovah in their sufferings and he brought them out from their griefs.
7He walked them in the way of truth to go to inhabited cities.
8His righteous ones shall thank Lord Jehovah for his mercies upon the sons of men.
9Because he satisfies the afflicted souls and he fills the hungry soul-
10Those who sit in darkness and in the shadows of death, and are bound in poverty and in irons.
11Because they bitterly provoked the Word of God and rejected the counsel of The Highest
12He broke their heart with toil and they were sick and there was no helper for them.
13And they prayed to Lord Jehovah in their adversity and he saved them from their adversity.
14He brought them out from darkness and from the shadow of death and he cut their bonds.
15His righteous ones shall confess to Lord Jehovah that his mercies are upon the children of men.
16Because he shattered the gates of brass and has cut down the bars of iron.
17He helped them from the way of their sins and they were humbled by their evils.
18Their souls had hated all food and had arrived unto the gates of death.
19They begged Lord Jehovah in their sufferings and he brought them out from their adversity.
20He sent his word and he healed them and delivered them from destruction.
21His righteous ones shall confess Lord Jehovah for his mercies upon the children of men.
22Sacrifice to him sacrifices of praise; praise his works with his wonders!
23Those who go down to the sea in ships and do work in the great waters
24They have seen the works of Lord Jehovah and his wonders in the depths of the sea!
25For he has raised up the wind of hurricanes and the waves of the sea were lifted up.
26They went up to the sky and went down to the abyss and their soul staggered within them.
27They shook and were agitated like drunkards and all their wisdom came to nothing.
28They cried to Lord Jehovah in their sufferings and he brought them out from their adversity.
29He calmed the hurricanes and they stopped and the waves of the sea were quieted.
30And they rejoiced when they stopped; he led them to the haven that they had chosen.
31His righteous ones shall thank Lord Jehovah for his mercies upon the children of men.
32Praise him in the congregation of the nations and exalt him upon the seat of the Elders.
33For he makes the rivers like the wilderness and the springs of water thirsty.
34The land has given its fruit to a salt pit by the works of the evil ones who inhabit it.
35For he makes the wilderness pools of waters and a thirsty land into springs of waters.
36He makes the hungry to dwell there and they have built cities and have dwelt in them.
37They sowed the fields and they planted vineyards and they ate from the fruit of their crops.
38He blessed them and they multiplied greatly and he did not diminish their cattle.
39And they decreased and they were humbled in the abundance of evil and of misery.
40He casts evil upon Rulers and makes them wander in a trackless waste without a road.
41And he strengthened the poor and he made their families like flocks.
42For the righteous ones will see and will rejoice and all the evil ones will shut their jaws.
43He who is wise will keep these things and will make known the mercy of Lord Jehovah.
