Psalms 107-150

Let the Redeemed of the LORD Say So

1Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;

His loving devotion endures forever.

2Let the redeemed of the LORD say so,

whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy

3and gathered from the lands,

from east and west, from north and south.a

4Some wandered in desert wastelands,

finding no path to a city to dwell in.

5They were hungry and thirsty;

their soul fainted within them.

6Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble;

He delivered them from their distress.

7He led them on a straight path

to reach a city where they could live.

8Let them give thanks to the LORD for His loving devotion

and His wonders to the sons of men.

9For He satisfies the thirsty

and fills the hungry with good things.

10Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death,

prisoners in misery and chains,

11because they rebelled against the words of God

and despised the counsel of the Most High.

12He humbled their hearts with hard labor;

they stumbled, and there was no one to help.

13Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble;

He saved them from their distress.

14He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death

and broke away their chains.

15Let them give thanks to the LORD for His loving devotion

and His wonders to the sons of men.

16For He has broken down the gates of bronze

and cut through the bars of iron.

17Fools, in their rebellious ways,

and through their iniquities, suffered affliction.

18They loathed all food

and drew near to the gates of death.

19Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble;

He saved them from their distress.

20He sent forth His word and healed them;

He rescued them from the Pit.

21Let them give thanks to the LORD for His loving devotion

and His wonders to the sons of men.

22Let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving

and declare His works with rejoicing.

23Others went out to sea in ships,

conducting trade on the mighty waters.

24They saw the works of the LORD,

and His wonders in the deep.

25For He spoke and raised a tempest

that lifted the waves of the sea.

26They mounted up to the heavens, they sunk to the depths;

their courage melted in their anguish.

27They reeled and staggered like drunkards,

and all their skill was useless.b

28Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble,

and He brought them out of their distress.

29He calmed the storm to a whisper,

and the waves of the seac were hushed.

30They rejoiced in the silence

and He guided them to the harbor they desired.

31Let them give thanks to the LORD for His loving devotion

and His wonders to the sons of men.

32Let them exalt Him in the assembly of the people

and praise Him in the council of the elders.

33He turns rivers into deserts,

springs of water into thirsty ground,

34fruitful land into fields of salt,

because of the wickedness of its dwellers.

35He turns a desert into pools of water,

and a dry land into flowing springs.

36He causes the hungry to settle there,

that they may establish a city to dwell.

37They sow fields and plant vineyards

that yield a fruitful harvest.

38He blesses them, and they multiply greatly;

He does not let their herds diminish.

39When they are decreased and humbled

by oppression, evil, and sorrow,

40He pours contempt on the nobles

and makes them wander a pathless wasteland.

41But He lifts the needy from affliction

and increases their families like flocks.

42The upright see and rejoice,

and all iniquity shuts its mouth.

43Let him who is wise pay heed to these things

and consider the loving devotion of the LORD.
