(106-1) Give glory to the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
(106-2) Let them say so that have been redeemed by the Lord, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy: and gathered out of the countries.
(106-3) From the rising and from the setting of the sun, from the north and from the sea.
(106-4) They wandered in a wilderness, in a place without water: they found not the way of a city for their habitation.
(106-5) They were hungry and thirsty: their soul fainted in them.
(106-6) And they cried to the Lord in their tribulation: and he delivered them out of their distresses.
(106-7) And he led them into the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
(106-8) Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him: and his wonderful works to the children of men.
(106-9) For he hath satisfied the empty soul, and hath filled the hungry soul with good things.
(106-10) Such as sat in darkness and in the shadow of death: bound in want and in iron.
(106-11) Because they had exasperated the words of God: and provoked the counsel of the most High:
(106-12) And their heart was humbled with labours: they were weakened, and there was none to help them.
(106-13) Then they cried to the Lord in their affliction: and he delivered them out of their distresses.
(106-14) And he brought them out of darkness, and the shadow of death; and broke their bonds in sunder.
(106-15) Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him, and his wonderful works to the children of men.
(106-16) Because he hath broken gates of brass, and burst iron bars.
(106-17) He took them out of the way of their iniquity: for they were brought low for their injustices.
(106-18) Their soul abhorred all manner of meat: and they drew nigh even to the gates of death.
(106-19) And they cried to the Lord in their affliction: and he delivered them out of their distresses.
(106-20) He sent his word, and healed them: and delivered them from their destructions.
(106-21) Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him: and his wonderful works to the children of men.
(106-22) And let them sacrifice the sacrifice of praise: and declare his works with joy.
(106-23) They that go down to the sea in ships, doing business in the great waters:
(106-24) These have seen the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.
(106-25) He said the word, and there arose a storm of wind: and the waves thereof were lifted up.
(106-26) They mount up to the heavens, and they go down to the depths: their soul pined away with evils.
(106-27) They were troubled, and reeled like a drunken man; and all their wisdom was swallowed up.
(106-28) And they cried to the Lord in their affliction: and he brought them out of their distresses.
(106-29) And he turned the storm into a breeze: and its waves were still.
(106-30) And they rejoiced because they were still: and he brought them to the haven which they wished for.
(106-31) Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him, and his wonderful works to the children of men.
(106-32) And let them exalt him in the church of the people: and praise him in the chair of the ancients.
(106-33) He hath turned rivers into a wilderness: and the sources of waters into dry ground:
(106-34) A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
(106-35) He hath turned a wilderness into pools of waters, and a dry land into water springs.
(106-36) And hath placed there the hungry; and they made a city for their habitation.
(106-37) Anti they sowed fields, and planted vineyards: and they yielded fruit of birth.
(106-38) And he blessed them, and they were multiplied exceedingly: and their cattle he suffered not to decrease.
(106-39) Then they were brought to be few: and they were afflicted through the trouble of evils and sorrow.
(106-40) Contempt was poured forth upon their princes: and he caused them to wander where there was no passing, and out of the way.
(106-41) And he helped the poor out of poverty: and made him families like a flock of sheep.
(106-42) The just shall see, and shall rejoice, and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
(106-43) Who is wise, and will keep these things; and will understand the mercies of the Lord?
