Psalm 107:40
Context
His Loving Kindness Endures Forever

1O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever. 2Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the enemy; 3And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south. 4They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in. 5Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. 6Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses. 7And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation. 8Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 9For he satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. 10Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron; 11Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High: 12Therefore he brought down their heart with labor; they fell down, and there was none to help. 13Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. 14He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their bands in sunder. 15Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 16For he has broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder. 17Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. 18Their soul abhors all manner of meat; and they draw near to the gates of death. 19Then they cry to the LORD in their trouble, and he saves them out of their distresses. 20He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. 21Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 22And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing. 23They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; 24These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep. 25For he commands, and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up the waves thereof. 26They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. 27They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end. 28Then they cry to the LORD in their trouble, and he brings them out of their distresses. 29He makes the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. 30Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he brings them to their desired haven. 31Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 32Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders. 33He turns rivers into a wilderness, and the springs into dry ground; 34A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein. 35He turns the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into springs. 36And there he makes the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation; 37And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase. 38He blesses them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffers not their cattle to decrease. 39Again, they are diminished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow. 40He pours contempt on princes, and causes them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way. 41Yet sets he the poor on high from affliction, and makes him families like a flock. 42The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth. 43Whoever is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the loving kindness of the LORD.
