1: 'Give ye thanks to Jehovah, For good, for to the age [is] His kindness:' 2: Let the redeemed of Jehovah say, Whom He redeemed from the hand of an adversary. 3: And from the lands hath gathered them, From east and from west, From north, and from the sea. 4: They wandered in a wilderness, in a desert by the way, A city of habitation they have not found. 5: Hungry -- yea -- thirsty, Their soul in them becometh feeble, 6: And they cry unto Jehovah in their adversity, From their distress He delivereth them, 7: And causeth them to tread in a right way, To go unto a city of habitation. 8: They confess to Jehovah His kindness, And His wonders to the sons of men. 9: For He hath satisfied a longing soul, And a hungry soul hath filled [with] goodness. 10: Inhabitants of dark places and death-shade, Prisoners of affliction and of iron, 11: Because they changed the saying of God, And the counsel of the Most High despised. 12: And He humbleth with labour their heart, They have been feeble, and there is no helper. 13: And they cry unto Jehovah in their adversity, From their distresses He saveth them. 14: He bringeth them out from the dark place, And death-shade, And their bands He draweth away. 15: They confess to Jehovah His kindness, And His wonders to the sons of men. 16: For He hath broken doors of brass, And bars of iron He hath cut. 17: Fools, by means of their transgression, And by their iniquities, afflict themselves. 18: All food doth their soul abominate, And they come nigh unto the gates of death, 19: And cry unto Jehovah in their adversity, From their distresses He saveth them, 20: He sendeth His word and healeth them, And delivereth from their destructions. 21: They confess to Jehovah His kindness, And His wonders to the sons of men, 22: And they sacrifice sacrifices of thanksgiving, And recount His works with singing. 23: Those going down [to] the sea in ships, Doing business in many waters, 24: They have seen the works of Jehovah, And His wonders in the deep. 25: And He saith, and appointeth a tempest, And it lifteth up its billows, 26: They go up [to] the heavens, they go down [to] the depths, Their soul in evil is melted. 27: They reel to and fro, and move as a drunkard, And all their wisdom is swallowed up. 28: And they cry to Jehovah in their adversity, And from their distresses He bringeth them out. 29: He establisheth a whirlwind to a calm, And hushed are their billows. 30: And they rejoice because they are quiet, And He leadeth them to the haven of their desire. 31: They confess to Jehovah His kindness, And His wonders to the sons of men, 32: And they exalt Him in the assembly of the people, And in the seat of the elders praise Him. 33: He maketh rivers become a wilderness, And fountains of waters become dry land. 34: A fruitful land becometh a barren place, For the wickedness of its inhabitants. 35: He maketh a wilderness become a pool of water, And a dry land become fountains of waters. 36: And He causeth the hungry to dwell there, And they prepare a city of habitation. 37: And they sow fields, and plant vineyards, And they make fruits of increase. 38: And He blesseth them, and they multiply exceedingly, And their cattle He doth not diminish. 39: And they are diminished, and bow down, By restraint, evil, and sorrow. 40: He is pouring contempt upon nobles, And causeth them to wander in vacancy -- no way. 41: And setteth on high the needy from affliction, And placeth families as a flock. 42: The upright do see and rejoice, And all perversity hath shut her mouth. 43: Who [is] wise, and observeth these? They understand the kind acts of Jehovah!
