Psalm 107. Confitemini Domino.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twenty-second Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. O GIVE thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious, *
    and his mercy endureth for ever.
  2. Let them give thanks whom the Lord hath redeemed, *
    and delivered from the hand of the enemy;
  3. And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west; *
    from the north, and from the south.
  4. They went astray in the wilderness out of the way, *
    and found no city to dwell in.
  5. Hungry and thirsty, *
    their soul fainted in them.
  6. So they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, *
    and he delivered them from their distress.
  7. He led them forth by the right way, *
    that they might go to the city where they dwelt.
  8. O that men would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness; *
    and declare the wonders that he doeth for the children of men!
  9. For he satisfieth the empty soul, *
    and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
  10. Such as sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death, *
    being fast bound in misery and iron;
  11. Because they rebelled against the words of the Lord, *
    and lightly regarded the counsel of the Most Highest;
  12. He also brought down their heart through heaviness: *
    they fell down, and there was none to help them.
  13. So when they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, *
    he delivered them out of their distress.
  14. For he brought them out of darkness, and out of the shadow of death, *
    and brake their bonds in sunder.
  15. O that men would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness; *
    and declare the wonders that he doeth for the children of men!
  16. For he hath broken the gates of brass, *
    and smitten the bars of iron in sunder.
  17. Foolish men are plagued for their offence, *
    and because of their wickedness.
  18. Their soul abhorred all manner of meat, *
    and they were even hard at death's door.
  19. So when they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, *
    he delivered them out of their distress.
  20. He sent his word, and healed them; *
    and they were saved from their destruction.
  21. O that men would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness; *
    and declare the wonders that he doeth for the children of men!
  22. That they would offer unto him the sacrifice of thanksgiving, *
    and tell out his works with gladness!
  23. They that go down to the sea in ships, *
    and occupy their business in great waters;
  24. These men see the works of the Lord, *
    and his wonders in the deep.
  25. For at his word the stormy wind ariseth, *
    which lifteth up the waves thereof.
  26. They are carried up to the heaven, and down again to the deep; *
    their soul melteth away because of the trouble.
  27. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, *
    and are at their wit's end.
  28. So when they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, *
    he delivereth them out of their distress.
  29. For he maketh the storm to cease, *
    so that the waves thereof are still.
  30. Then are they glad, because they are at rest; *
    and so he bringeth them unto the haven where they would be.
  31. O that men would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness; *
    and declare the wonders that he doeth for the children of men!
  32. That they would exalt him also in the congregation of the people, *
    and praise him in the seat of the elders!
  33. He turneth the floods into a wilderness, *
    and drieth up the water-springs.
  34. A fruitful land maketh he barren, *
    for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
  35. Again, he maketh the wilderness a standing water, *
    and water-springs of a dry ground.
  36. And there he setteth the hungry, *
    that they may build them a city to dwell in;
  37. That they may sow their land, and plant vineyards, *
    to yield them fruits of increase.
  38. He blesseth them, so that they multiply exceedingly; *
    and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
  39. And again, when they are minished and brought low *
    through oppression, through any plague or trouble;
  40. Though he suffer them to be evil entreated through tyrants, *
    and let them wander out of the way in the wilderness;
  41. Yet helpeth he the poor out of misery, *
    and maketh him households like a flock of sheep.
  42. The righteous will consider this, and rejoice; *
    and the mouth of all wickedness shall be stopped.
  43. Whoso is wise, will ponder these things; *
    and they shall understand the loving-kindness of the Lord.
