BOOK V

 1 Praise Yahweh, for he is good,

 for his covenant faithfulness endures forever.

 

 2 Let the redeemed by Yahweh say so,

 whom he has redeemed from the hand of the foe

 

 3 and gathered them out of the lands,

 from the east and from the west,

 from the north and from the sea.

 

 
4 
They wandered in the wilderness on a desert road.

 They did not find a way to a city to inhabit.

 

 5 Hungry and thirsty,

 their soul fainted within them.

 

 6 Then they cried out to Yahweh in their trouble;

 he delivered them out of their distresses.

 

 7 He led them also by a straight road,

 that they might walk to a city to inhabit.

 

 8 Let them praise Yahweh

 for his covenant faithfulness

 and for his wonderful deeds to the children of men!

 

 9 For he satisfies the thirsty soul,

 and he fills the hungry soul with what is good.

 

 
10 
Those who dwell in darkness and in the shadow of death

 are prisoners in affliction and iron chains

 

 11 because they rebelled against the words of God

 and spurned the counsel of the Most High.

 

 12 Therefore he humbled their heart with labor;

 they stumbled and there was no one to help.

 

 13 Then they cried out to Yahweh in their trouble

 and he delivered them out of their distresses.

 

 14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death

 and he tore apart their fetters.

 

 15 Let them praise Yahweh

 for his covenant faithfulness

 and for his wonderful deeds to the children of men!

 

 16 For he has shattered gates of bronze

 and he has cut iron bars.

 

 
17 
The foolish are afflicted

 because of their road of transgression and because of their iniquities.

 

 18 Their soul abhors all kinds of food,

 and they have arrived the gates of death.

 

 19 Then they cry out to Yahweh in their trouble;

 he delivers them out of their distresses.

 

 20 He sends his word, and heals them,

 and delivers them from their pits.

 

 21 Let them praise Yahweh

 for his covenant faithfulness

 and for his wonderful deeds to the children of men!

 

 22 Let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving

 and declare his works with a cry of jubilation.

 

 
23 
Those who go down to the sea in ships,

 who do business in great waters,

 

 24 these have seen the works of Yahweh

 and his wonders in the deep.

 

 25 For he commands and raises the stormy wind,

 and it lifts up its waves.

 

 26 They rise up to the heavens; they go down to the deeps.

 Their soul melts away in misery.

 

 27 They stagger and totter like a drunken man,

 and all of their wisdom is confused.

 

 28 Then they cry out to Yahweh in their trouble,

 and he brings them out of their distresses.

 

 29 He makes the tempest a calm

 so that its waves are silent.

 

 30 Then they rejoice because they are quiet,

 so he guided them to their desired harbor.

 

 31 Let them praise Yahweh for his covenant faithfulness

 and for his wonderful deeds to the children of men!

 

 32 Let them exalt him also in the assembly of the people

 and let them praise him at the seat of the elders.

 

 
33 
He turns rivers into a wilderness

 and springs of water into a thirsty ground;

 

 34 a fruitful land into a salty waste

 because of the wickedness of those who dwell in it.

 

 35 He turns a wilderness into a pool of water,

 and a dry land into springs of water.

 

 36 And there he makes the hungry to dwell,

 that they may establish a city to inhabit,

 

 37 and sow fields and plant vineyards

 and reap a fruitful harvest.

 

 38 He also blesses them so that they multiply greatly

 and their cattle will not decrease.

 

 
39 
And when the people are diminished and bowed down

 through oppression, misery, and sorrow,

 

 40 he pours out contempt upon nobles,

 and causes them to wander in a roadless waste.

 

 41 Yet he lifts the needy securely from their affliction

 and he makes the families like flocks.

 

 42 The upright will see it and will rejoice;

 but all wickedness shuts its mouth.

 

 
43 
Who is wise? Let him keep watch over these things

 and let him discern Yahweh’s covenant faithfulness!
