and the hungry soul he hath filled with good.
10 They who sat in darkness and the shadow of death : who were bound in at fliction and iron :
11 Because they had rebelled against the commands of GOD : and had disregarded the counsel of the most high :
12 Whose heart he had humbled with sorrow ; and who were fallen, and there was no one to help them ;
13 When these cried unto JEHOVAH in their tribulation ; he delivered them from their distress :
14. He brought them out of darkness, and the shadow of death ; and brake their chains asunder.
1; Let these, therefore, praise Jehovah for his mercy; and for the wonderful things which he hath done for the children of men :
16 For he hath broken open the gates of brass ; and hath cut asunder the bolts of iron.
17 The foolish, because of their sinful way, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted :
19 Their soul doth nauscate all food; and they approach toward the gates of death :
19 When these cry unto Jehovah in their tribulation ; he delivereth them from their distress :
20 He sendeth forth his word, and healeth them; and rescueth them from destruction.
21 Let these, therefore, praise JEHOVAH for his mercy; and for the wonderful things which he hath done for the children of mnen.
22 Let these offer sacrifices of praise ; and recount his works with joy.
23 They who sail on the sca in ships ; and transact business on the great waters :
24 They see the works of Jehovah, and his wonderful doings, on the ocean :
25 For, at his command, a tempestuous wind ariseth, and lifteth up the waves thereof:
26 Which ascend unto the heavens, and descend again into the abyss ; at the roaring of which, their soul melteth with fear :
27 They reel and stagger like a drunken man ; and all their skill in sailing faileth them :
28 When these cry unto JEHOVAH in their tribulation; he delivereth them from their distress :
29 He turneth the tempest into a calm ; and stilleth the waves of the sea.
30 Then they rejoice because they are at ease ; and he leadeth them to the port where they wished to be landed.
31 Let these, therefore, praise JEHOVAH for his mercy ; and for the wonderful things which he hath done for the children of men.
32 Let these praise JEHOVAH in the as. sembly of the people ; let these praise him in the council of the elders.
33 He can make a well-watered country a desert : and a land abounding with springs he can convert into a dry soil :
34 A fruitful land be can change into a barren waste; because of the wickedness of those who inhabit it.
35 He can turn a desert into a land abounding with springs ; and a dry soil into a well-watcred country :
36 And settle there the hungry; that they may build a city which they inay inhabit: : 37 And sow fields and plant vineyards, which
may produce increase of fruits.
38 He can bless them, so that they shall multiply exceedingly ; and their cattle. shall not be few.
39 So again ; when they are reduced and brought low by oppression, calamity, and afriction :
40 He can pour shame upon princes ; and make them to wander in the pathless desert :
41 While he raiseth the distressed from affliction ; and maketh his tribes like a flock of sheep.
42 The righteous will see this, and rcjoice ; and the mouth of all iniquity shall be stopped.
43 He who is wise will observe these things ; and will understand thie mercies of JEHOVAH.
MINE heart is ready, o God! mine heart is ready ; I will sing and give praise.
2 Awake, my tongue; awake, my lyre and harp! I will wake the early morning.
3 I will praise thee, O JEHOVAH ! among the peoples; I will celebrate thee among the nations:
4 For thy bounty reacheth unto the heavens; and thy truth unto the clouds.
5 Be thou exalted, O GOD! above the heavens ; be thy glory displayed over all the earth.
6 Hear! and rescue us with thy right-hand, that thy beloved people may be delivered.
7 GOD answereth favourably from his sanctuary, therefore, I will rejoice : I shall yet divide Sichem into lots, and measure out the valley of Succoth :
8 Gilead shall be mine, and Manasseh shall be mine; Ephraim shall be the helmet of mine head ; and Judah my lawgiver :
9 Moab shall be my washing pot; at Edom I shall cast my shoe, and over Philistia I shall triumph.
10 Who will lead me to that strong city? Who will conduct me to Edom ?
in Wilt thou, O GOD! still rejectus, and not go forth with our armies ?
12 Grant now thine aid after our distress; for vain is the help of man.
13 Through God we shall do great deeds; for he will tread down our enemies.
