Salmos 107

LIBRO V

1Dad gracias al Señor, porque él es bueno;
    su gran amor perdura para siempre.
Que lo digan los redimidos del Señor,
    a quienes redimió del poder del adversario,
a quienes reunió de todos los países,
    de oriente y de occidente, del norte y del sur.[a]

Vagaban perdidos por parajes desiertos,
    sin dar con el camino a una ciudad habitable.
Hambrientos y sedientos,
    la vida se les iba consumiendo.
En su angustia clamaron al Señor,
    y él los libró de su aflicción.
Los llevó por el camino recto
    hasta llegar a una ciudad habitable.

¡Que den gracias al Señor por su gran amor,
    por sus maravillas en favor nuestro!
¡Él apaga la sed del sediento,
    y sacia con lo mejor al hambriento!

10 Afligidos y encadenados,
    habitaban en las más densas tinieblas
11 por haberse rebelado contra las palabras de Dios,
    por menospreciar los designios del Altísimo.
12 Los sometió[b] a trabajos forzados;
    tropezaban, y no había quien los ayudara.
13 En su angustia clamaron al Señor,
    y él los salvó de su aflicción.
14 Los sacó de las sombras tenebrosas
    y rompió en pedazos sus cadenas.

15 ¡Que den gracias al Señor por su gran amor,
    por sus maravillas en favor de los hombres!
16 ¡Él hace añicos las puertas de bronce
    y rompe en mil pedazos las barras de hierro!

17 Trastornados por su rebeldía,
    afligidos por su iniquidad,
18 todo alimento les daba asco.
    ¡Llegaron a las puertas mismas de la muerte!
19 En su angustia clamaron al Señor,
    y él los salvó de su aflicción.
20 Envió su palabra para sanarlos,
    y así los rescató del sepulcro.

21 ¡Que den gracias al Señor por su gran amor,
    por sus maravillas en favor de los hombres!
22 ¡Que ofrezcan sacrificios de gratitud,
    y, jubilosos, proclamen sus obras!

23 Se hicieron a la mar en sus barcos;
    para comerciar surcaron las muchas aguas.
24 Allí, en las aguas profundas,
    vieron las obras del Señor y sus maravillas.
25 Habló Dios, y se desató un fuerte viento
    que tanto encrespó las olas
26 que subían a los cielos y bajaban al abismo.
    Ante el peligro, ellos perdieron el coraje.
27 Como ebrios tropezaban, se tambaleaban;
    de nada les valía toda su pericia.
28 En su angustia clamaron al Señor,
    y él los sacó de su aflicción.
29 Cambió la tempestad en suave brisa:
    se sosegaron las olas del mar.
30 Ante esa calma se alegraron,
    y Dios los llevó al puerto anhelado.

31 ¡Que den gracias al Señor por su gran amor,
    por sus maravillas en favor de los hombres!
32 ¡Que lo exalten en la asamblea del pueblo!
    ¡Que lo alaben en el consejo de los ancianos!

33 Dios convirtió los ríos en desiertos,
    los manantiales en tierra seca,
34 los fértiles terrenos en tierra salitrosa,
    por la maldad de sus habitantes.
35 Convirtió el desierto en fuentes de agua,
    la tierra seca en manantiales;
36 hizo habitar allí a los hambrientos,
    y ellos fundaron una ciudad habitable.
37 Sembraron campos, plantaron viñedos,
    obtuvieron abundantes cosechas.
38 Dios los bendijo y se multiplicaron,
    y no dejó que menguaran sus rebaños.

39 Pero, si merman y son humillados,
    es por la opresión, la maldad y la aflicción.
40 Dios desdeña a los nobles
    y los hace vagar por desiertos sin senderos.
41 Pero a los necesitados los saca de su miseria,
    y hace que sus familias crezcan como rebaños.
42 Los rectos lo verán y se alegrarán,
    pero todos los impíos serán acallados.

43 Quien sea sabio, que considere estas cosas
    y entienda bien el gran amor del Señor.

Psalm 107

BOOK 5

The Lord Delivers Men from Manifold Troubles.

1Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary
And gathered from the lands,
From the east and from the west,
From the north and from the [a]south.

They wandered in the wilderness in a [b]desert region;
They did not find a way to [c]an inhabited city.
They were hungry [d]and thirsty;
Their soul fainted within them.
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
He delivered them out of their distresses.
He led them also by a [e]straight way,
To go to [f]an inhabited city.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His [g]wonders to the sons of men!
For He has satisfied the [h]thirsty soul,
And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.

10 There were those who dwelt in darkness and in the shadow of death,
Prisoners in [i]misery and [j]chains,
11 Because they had 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 none to help.
13 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
He saved them out of their distresses.
14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death
And broke their bands apart.
15 Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His [k]wonders to the sons of men!
16 For He has shattered gates of bronze
And cut bars of iron asunder.

17 Fools, because of [l]their rebellious way,
And because of their iniquities, were afflicted.
18 Their soul abhorred all kinds of food,
And they drew near to the gates of death.
19 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
He saved them out of their distresses.
20 He sent His word and healed them,
And delivered them from their [m]destructions.
21 Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His [n]wonders to the sons of men!
22 Let them also offer sacrifices of thanksgiving,
And tell of His works with joyful singing.

23 Those who go down to the sea in ships,
Who do business on great waters;
24 They have seen the works of the Lord,
And His [o]wonders in the deep.
25 For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind,
Which lifted up the waves [p]of the sea.
26 They rose up to the heavens, they went down to the depths;
Their soul melted away in their misery.
27 They reeled and staggered like a drunken man,
And [q]were at their wits’ end.
28 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
And He brought them out of their distresses.
29 He caused the storm to be still,
So that the waves [r]of the sea were hushed.
30 Then they were glad because they were quiet,
So He guided them to their desired haven.
31 Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His [s]wonders to the sons of men!
32 Let them extol Him also in the congregation of the people,
And praise Him at the seat of the elders.

33 He [t]changes rivers into a [u]wilderness
And springs of water into a thirsty ground;
34 A fruitful land into a salt waste,
Because of the wickedness of those who dwell in it.
35 He [v]changes a [w]wilderness into a pool of water
And a dry land into springs of water;
36 And there He makes the hungry to dwell,
So that they may establish [x]an inhabited city,
37 And sow fields and plant vineyards,
And [y]gather a fruitful harvest.
38 Also He blesses them and they multiply greatly,
And He does not let their cattle decrease.

39 When they are diminished and bowed down
Through oppression, misery and sorrow,
40 He pours contempt upon [z]princes
And makes them wander in a pathless waste.
41 But He sets the needy [aa]securely on high away from affliction,
And makes his families like a flock.
42 The upright see it and are glad;
But all unrighteousness shuts its mouth.
43 Who is wise? Let him give heed to these things,
And consider the lovingkindnesses of the Lord.
