1 Give thanks to ADONAI; for he is good, for his grace continues forever. 2 Let those redeemed by ADONAI say it, those he redeemed from the power of the foe. 3 He gathered them from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the sea. 4 They wandered in the desert, on paths through the wastes, without finding any inhabited city. 5 They were hungry and thirsty, their life was ebbing away. 6 In their trouble they cried to ADONAI, and he rescued them from their distress. 7 He led them by a direct path to a city where they could live. 8 Let them give thanks to ADONAI for his grace, for his wonders bestowed on humanity! 9 For he has satisfied the hungry, filled the starving with good. 10 Some lived in darkness, in death-dark gloom, bound in misery and iron chains, 11 because they defied God's word, scorned the counsel of the Most High. 12 So he humbled their hearts by hard labor; when they stumbled, no one came to their aid. 13 In their trouble they cried to ADONAI, and he rescued them from their distress. 14 He led them from darkness, from death-dark gloom, shattering their chains. 15 Let them give thanks to ADONAI for his grace, for his wonders bestowed on humanity! 16 For he shattered bronze doors and cut through iron bars. 17 There were foolish people who suffered affliction because of their crimes and sins; 18 they couldn't stand to eat anything; they were near the gates of death. 19 In their trouble they cried to ADONAI, and he rescued them from their distress; 20 he sent his word and healed them, he delivered them from destruction. 21 Let them give thanks to ADONAI for his grace, for his wonders bestowed on humanity! 22 Let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving and proclaim his great deeds with songs of joy. 23 Those who go down to the sea in ships, plying their trade on the great ocean, 24 saw the works of ADONAI, his wonders in the deep. 25 For at his word the storm-wind arose, lifting up towering waves. 26 The sailors were raised up to the sky, then plunged into the depths. At the danger, their courage failed them, 27 they reeled and staggered like drunk men, and all their skill was swallowed up. 28 In their trouble they cried to ADONAI, and he rescued them from their distress. 29 He silenced the storm and stilled its waves, 30 and they rejoiced as the sea grew calm. Then he brought them safely to their desired port. 31 Let them give thanks to ADONAI for his grace, for his wonders bestowed on humanity! 32 Let them extol him in the assembly of the people and praise him in the leaders' council. 33 He turns rivers into desert, flowing springs into thirsty ground, 34 productive land into salt flats, because the people living there are so wicked. 35 But he also turns desert into pools of water, dry land into flowing springs; 36 there he gives the hungry a home, and they build a city to live in; 37 there they sow fields and plant vineyards, which yield an abundant harvest. 38 He blesses them, their numbers grow, and he doesn't let their livestock decrease. 39 When their numbers fall, and they grow weak, because of oppression, disaster and sorrow, 40 he pours contempt on princes and leaves them to wander in trackless wastes. 41 But the needy he raises up from their distress and increases their families like sheep. 42 When the upright see this, they rejoice; while the wicked are reduced to silence. 43 Let whoever is wise observe these things and consider ADONAI's loving deeds.
