Psalms 107: 1-8
New Living Translation
1Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good!
His faithful love endures forever.
2Has the LORD redeemed you? Then speak out!
Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies.
3For he has gathered the exiles from many lands,
from east and west,
from north and south.
4Some wandered in the wilderness,
lost and homeless.
5Hungry and thirsty,
they nearly died.
6 LORD, help! they cried in their trouble,
and he rescued them from their distress.
7He led them straight to safety,
to a city where they could live.
8Let them praise the LORD for his great love
and for the wonderful things he has done for them.
9For he satisfies the thirsty
and fills the hungry with good things.
