Tehilim Chapter No 107

tehilim 107

Translation

1. O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his loving kindness endures for ever! 
2. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the enemy; 
3. And gathered them from the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south!
4. They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way; they found no city to dwell in!
5. Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them!
6. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distresses!
7. And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation!
8. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his loving kindness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
9. For he satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness!
10. Those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, bound in affliction and iron; 
11. Because they rebelled against the words of God, and rejected the counsel of the most High; 
12. And he brought down their heart with labor; they fell down, and there was none to help!
13. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distresses!
14. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their bonds asunder!
15. Let them praise the Lord for his loving kindness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
16. For he broke the gates of bronze, and cut the bars of iron asunder!
17. Fools were afflicted because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities!
18. Their soul loathed all manner of food; and they came near to the gates of death!
19. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses!
20. He sent his word, and healed them, and saved them from their destructions!
21. Let them praise the Lord for his loving kindness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
22. And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing!
23. Those who go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; 
24. Those saw the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep!
25. For he commands, and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up its waves!
26. They mount up to the sky, they go down again to the depths; their soul is melted because of trouble!
27. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit’s end!
28. Then they cry to the Lord in their trouble, and he brings them out of their distresses!
29. He calms the storm, so that its waves are still!
30. Then they are glad because they have quiet; and he brings them to their desired haven!
31. Let them praise the Lord for his loving kindness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
32. Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders!
33. He turns rivers into a wilderness, and springs of water into dry ground; 
34. A fruitful land into barrenness, because of the wickedness of its inhabitants!
35. He turns the wilderness into a pool of water, and dry ground into springs of water!
36. And there he lets the hungry dwell, and they establish a city for habitation; 
37. And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which get a fruitful yield!
38. And he blesses them, so that they are multiplied greatly; and does not let their cattle decrease!
39. When they are diminished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow!
40. He pours contempt upon nobles, and causes them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way!
41. But he raises the poor high out of affliction, and makes his families like a flock!
42. The righteous shall see it, and rejoice; and all iniquity shall stop its mouth!
43. Whoever is wise, and will observe these things, let them consider the loving kindness of the Lord!
