"Give thanks to the LORD because he is good, because his faithful love lasts forever!"
That's what those who are redeemed by the LORD say, the ones God redeemed from the power of their enemies,
the ones God gathered from various countries, from east and west, north and south.
Some of the redeemed had wandered into the desert, into the wasteland. They couldn't find their way to a city or town.
They were hungry and thirsty; their lives were slipping away.
So they cried out to the LORD in their distress, and God delivered them from their desperate circumstances.
