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