1 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,for his steadfast love endures forever! 2Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,whom he has redeemed from trouble
3and gathered in from the lands,from the east and from the west,from the north and from the south.
23Some went down to the sea in ships,doing business on the great waters; 24they saw the deeds of the Lord,his wondrous works in the deep. 25For he commanded and raised the stormy wind,which lifted up the waves of the sea. 26They mounted up to heaven; they went down to the depths;their courage melted away in their evil plight; 27they reeled and staggered like drunken menand were at their wits' end.
28Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,and he delivered them from their distress. 29He made the storm be still,and the waves of the sea were hushed. 30Then they were glad that the waters were quiet,and he brought them to their desired haven. 31Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,for his wondrous works to the children of man! 32Let them extol him in the congregation of the people,and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
43Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things;let them consider the steadfast love of the Lord.
