1 (106-1) Give glory to the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. 2 (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. 3 (106-3) From the rising and from the setting of the sun, from the north and from the sea. 4 (106-4) They wandered in a wilderness, in a place without water: they found not the way of a city for their habitation. 5 (106-5) They were hungry and thirsty: their soul fainted in them. 6 (106-6) And they cried to the Lord in their tribulation: and he delivered them out of their distresses. 7 (106-7) And he led them into the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation. 8 (106-8) Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him: and his wonderful works to the children of men. 9 (106-9) For he hath satisfied the empty soul, and hath filled the hungry soul with good things. 10 (106-10) Such as sat in darkness and in the shadow of death: bound in want and in iron. 11 (106-11) Because they had exasperated the words of God: and provoked the counsel of the most High: 12 (106-12) And their heart was humbled with labours: they were weakened, and there was none to help them. 13 (106-13) Then they cried to the Lord in their affliction: and he delivered them out of their distresses. 14 (106-14) And he brought them out of darkness, and the shadow of death; and broke their bonds in sunder. 15 (106-15) Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him, and his wonderful works to the children of men. 16 (106-16) Because he hath broken gates of brass, and burst iron bars. 17 (106-17) He took them out of the way of their iniquity: for they were brought low for their injustices. 18 (106-18) Their soul abhorred all manner of meat: and they drew nigh even to the gates of death. 19 (106-19) And they cried to the Lord in their affliction: and he delivered them out of their distresses. 20 (106-20) He sent his word, and healed them: and delivered them from their destructions. 21 (106-21) Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him: and his wonderful works to the children of men. 22 (106-22) And let them sacrifice the sacrifice of praise: and declare his works with joy. 23 (106-23) They that go down to the sea in ships, doing business in the great waters: 24 (106-24) These have seen the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep. 25 (106-25) He said the word, and there arose a storm of wind: and the waves thereof were lifted up. 26 (106-26) They mount up to the heavens, and they go down to the depths: their soul pined away with evils. 27 (106-27) They were troubled, and reeled like a drunken man; and all their wisdom was swallowed up. 28 (106-28) And they cried to the Lord in their affliction: and he brought them out of their distresses. 29 (106-29) And he turned the storm into a breeze: and its waves were still. 30 (106-30) And they rejoiced because they were still: and he brought them to the haven which they wished for. 31 (106-31) Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him, and his wonderful works to the children of men. 32 (106-32) And let them exalt him in the church of the people: and praise him in the chair of the ancients. 33 (106-33) He hath turned rivers into a wilderness: and the sources of waters into dry ground: 34 (106-34) A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein. 35 (106-35) He hath turned a wilderness into pools of waters, and a dry land into water springs. 36 (106-36) And hath placed there the hungry; and they made a city for their habitation. 37 (106-37) Anti they sowed fields, and planted vineyards: and they yielded fruit of birth. 38 (106-38) And he blessed them, and they were multiplied exceedingly: and their cattle he suffered not to decrease. 39 (106-39) Then they were brought to be few: and they were afflicted through the trouble of evils and sorrow. 40 (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. 41 (106-41) And he helped the poor out of poverty: and made him families like a flock of sheep. 42 (106-42) The just shall see, and shall rejoice, and all iniquity shall stop her mouth. 43 (106-43) Who is wise, and will keep these things; and will understand the mercies of the Lord?
