Psalm 107
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1“Give thanks to YHWH, || For [He is] good, for His kindness [is] for all time”:

2Let the redeemed of YHWH say [so], || Whom He redeemed from the hand of an adversary.

3And has gathered them from the lands, || From east and from west, || From north, and from the sea.

4They wandered in a wilderness, in a desert by the way, || They have not found a city of habitation.

5Hungry—indeed—thirsty, || Their soul becomes feeble in them,

6And they cry to YHWH in their adversity, || He delivers them from their distress,

7And causes them to tread in a right way, || To go to a city of habitation.

8They confess to YHWH His kindness, || And His wonders to the sons of men.

9For He has satisfied a longing soul, || And has filled a hungry soul [with] goodness.

10Inhabitants of dark places and death-shade, || Prisoners of affliction and of iron,

11Because they changed the saying of God, || And despised the counsel of the Most High.

12And He humbles their heart with labor, || They have been feeble, and there is no helper.

13And they cry to YHWH in their adversity, || He saves them from their distresses.

14He brings them out from the dark place, || And death-shade, || And He draws away their bands.

15They confess to YHWH His kindness, || And His wonders to the sons of men.

16For He has broken doors of bronze, || And He has cut bars of iron.

17Fools, by means of their transgression, || And by their iniquities, afflict themselves.

18Their soul detests all food, || And they come near to the gates of death,

19And cry to YHWH in their adversity, || He saves them from their distresses,

20He sends His word and heals them, || And delivers [them] from their destructions.

21They confess to YHWH His kindness, || And His wonders to the sons of men,

22And they sacrifice sacrifices of thanksgiving, || And recount His works with singing.

23Those going down [to] the sea in ships, || Doing business in many waters,

24They have seen the works of YHWH, || And His wonders in the deep.

25And He commands, and appoints a storm, || And it lifts up its billows,

26They go up [to] the heavens, they go down [to] the depths, || Their soul is melted in evil.

27They reel to and fro, and move as a drunkard, || And all their wisdom is swallowed up.

28And they cry to YHWH in their adversity, || And He brings them out from their distresses.

29He calms a whirlwind, || And their billows are hushed.

30And they rejoice because they are quiet, || And He leads them to the haven of their desire.

31They confess to YHWH His kindness, || And His wonders to the sons of men,

32And they exalt Him in [the] assembly of [the] people, || And praise Him in [the] seat of [the] elderly.

33He makes rivers become a wilderness, || And fountains of waters become dry land.

34A fruitful land becomes a barren place, || For the wickedness of its inhabitants.

35He makes a wilderness become a pool of water, || And a dry land become fountains of waters.

36And He causes the hungry to dwell there, || And they prepare a city of habitation.

37And they sow fields, and plant vineyards, || And they make fruits of increase.

38And He blesses them, and they multiply exceedingly, || And He does not diminish their livestock.

39And they are diminished, and bow down, || By restraint, evil, and sorrow.

40He is pouring contempt on nobles, || And causes them to wander in vacancy—no way.

41And sets the needy on high from affliction, || And places families as a flock.

42The upright see and rejoice, || And all perversity has shut her mouth.

43Who [is] wise, and observes these? They understand the kind acts of YHWH!
