Psalm 107. Confitemini Domino.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twenty-second Day - Morning Prayer.

Part I: Confitemini Domino

  1. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, *
    and his mercy endures for ever.
  2. Let all those whom the Lord has redeemed proclaim *
    that he redeemed them from the hand of the foe.
  3. He gathered them out of the lands; *
    from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.
  4. Some wandered in desert wastes; *
    they found no way to a city where they might dwell.
  5. They were hungry and thirsty; *
    their spirits languished within them.
  6. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, *
    and he delivered them from their distress.
  7. He put their feet on a straight path *
    to go to a city where they might dwell.
  8. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his mercy *
    and the wonders he does for his children.
  9. For he satisfies the thirsty *
    and fills the hungry with good things.
  10. Some sat in darkness and deep gloom, *
    bound fast in misery and iron;
  11. Because they rebelled against the words of God *
    and despised the counsel of the Most High.
  12. So he humbled their spirits with hard labor; *
    they stumbled, and there was none to help.
  13. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, *
    and he delivered them from their distress.
  14. He led them out of darkness and deep gloom *
    and broke their bonds asunder.
  15. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his mercy *
    and the wonders he does for his children.
  16. For he shatters the doors of bronze *
    and breaks in two the iron bars.
  17. Some were fools and took to rebellious ways; *
    they were afflicted because of their sins.
  18. They abhorred all manner of food *
    and drew near to death's door.
  19. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, *
    and he delivered them from their distress.
  20. He sent forth his word and healed them *
    and saved them from the grave.
  21. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his mercy *
    and the wonders he does for his children.
  22. Let them offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving *
    and tell of his acts with shouts of joy.
  23. Some went down to the sea in ships *
    and plied their trade in deep waters;
  24. They beheld the works of the Lord *
    and his wonders in the deep.
  25. Then he spoke, and a stormy wind arose, *
    which tossed high the waves of the sea.
  26. They mounted up to the heavens and fell back to the depths; *
    their hearts melted because of their peril.
  27. They reeled and staggered like drunkards *
    and were at their wits' end.
  28. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, *
    and he delivered them from their distress.
  29. He stilled the storm to a whisper *
    and quieted the waves of the sea.
  30. Then were they glad because of the calm, *
    and he brought them to the harbor they were bound for.
  31. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his mercy *
    and the wonders he does for his children.
  32. Let them exalt him in the congregation of the people *
    and praise him in the council of the elders.

Part II: Posuit flumina

  1. The Lord changed rivers into deserts, *
    and water-springs into thirsty ground,
  2. A fruitful land into salt flats, *
    because of the wickedness of those who dwell there.
  3. He changed deserts into pools of water *
    and dry land into water-springs.
  4. He settled the hungry there, *
    and they founded a city to dwell in.
  5. They sowed fields, and planted vineyards, *
    and brought in a fruitful harvest.
  6. He blessed them, so that they increased greatly; *
    he did not let their herds decrease.
  7. Yet when they were diminished and brought low, *
    through stress of adversity and sorrow,
  8. (He pours contempt on princes *
    and makes them wander in trackless wastes)
  9. He lifted up the poor out of misery *
    and multiplied their families like flocks of sheep.
  10. The upright will see this and rejoice, *
    but all wickedness will shut its mouth.
  11. Whoever is wise will ponder these things, *
    and consider well the mercies of the Lord.
