Psalm 107 – Give thanks to the Lord

Psa 107:1 Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!
Psa 107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble
Psa 107:3 and gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.
Psa 107:4 Some wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to a city to dwell in;
Psa 107:5 hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them.
Psa 107:6 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.
Psa 107:7 He led them by a straight way till they reached a city to dwell in.
Psa 107:8 Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of men!
Psa 107:9 For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.
Psa 107:10 Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, prisoners in affliction and in irons,
Psa 107:11 for they had rebelled against the words of God, and spurned the counsel of the Most High.
Psa 107:12 So he bowed their hearts down with hard labor; they fell down, with none to help.
Psa 107:13 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.
Psa 107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and burst their bonds apart.
Psa 107:15 Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of men!
Psa 107:16 For he shatters the doors of bronze and cuts in two the bars of iron.
Psa 107:17 Some were fools through their sinful ways, and because of their iniquities suffered affliction;
Psa 107:18 they loathed any kind of food, and they drew near to the gates of death.
Psa 107:19 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.
Psa 107:20 He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.
Psa 107:21 Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of men!
Psa 107:22 And let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, and tell of his deeds in songs of joy!
Psa 107:23 Some went down to the sea in ships, doing business on the great waters;
Psa 107:24 they saw the deeds of the LORD, his wondrous works in the deep.
Psa 107:25 For he commanded and raised the stormy wind, which lifted up the waves of the sea.
Psa 107:26 They mounted up to heaven; they went down to the depths; their courage melted away in their evil plight;
Psa 107:27 they reeled and staggered like drunken men and were at their wits’ end.
Psa 107:28 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.
Psa 107:29 He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed.
Psa 107:30 Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven.
Psa 107:31 Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of men!
Psa 107:32 Let them extol him in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
Psa 107:33 He turns rivers into a desert, springs of water into thirsty ground,
Psa 107:34 a fruitful land into a salty waste, because of the evil of its inhabitants.
Psa 107:35 He turns a desert into pools of water, a parched land into springs of water.
Psa 107:36 And there he lets the hungry dwell, and they establish a city to live in;
Psa 107:37 they sow fields and plant vineyards and get a fruitful yield.
Psa 107:38 By his blessing they multiply greatly, and he does not let their livestock diminish.
Psa 107:39 When they are diminished and brought low through oppression, evil, and sorrow,
Psa 107:40 he pours contempt on princes and makes them wander in trackless wastes;
Psa 107:41 but he raises up the needy out of affliction and makes their families like flocks.
Psa 107:42 The upright see it and are glad, and all wickedness shuts its mouth.
Psa 107:43 Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things; let them consider the steadfast love of the LORD.

  1. Amen. Welcome back. How is everything in your new job?

    You can read the Original Thanksgiving Proclamation on the Christianity in History Blog, in case you went to public school like me đŸ™‚

    Have a Blessed Thanksgiving.

  2. Hi PL. The new business is progressing, slowly but surely. It’s been a huge effort, but hopefully will allow me to quit the corporate world soon.

    I saw that on the CH blog. That also dispels a load of pc myths that have infiltrated this day.
