Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good. His faithful love continues forever.
That's what those who have been set free by the LORD should say. He set them free from the power of the enemy.
He brought them back from other lands. He brought them back from east and west, from north and south.
Some of them wandered in deserts that were dry and empty. They couldn't find their way to a city where they could settle down.
They were hungry and thirsty. Their lives were slipping away.
Then they cried out to the LORD because of their problems. And he saved them from their troubles.
