Salmos 107

LIBRO V

1Den 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 de los hombres!
¡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 causaba 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.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 107

Book Five

The Lord Rescues People from Many Troubles.

1O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
For His compassion and lovingkindness endure forever!

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary,

And gathered them 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 [solitary] desert region;
And did not find a way to an inhabited city.

Hungry and thirsty,
They fainted.

Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
And He rescued them from their distresses.

He led them by the straight way,
To an inhabited city [where they could establish their homes].

Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His wonderful acts to the children of men!

For He satisfies the parched throat,
And fills the hungry appetite with what is good.

10 
Some dwelt in darkness and in the deep (deathly) darkness,
Prisoners [bound] in misery and chains,
11 
Because they had rebelled against the precepts of God
And spurned the counsel of the Most High.
12 
Therefore He humbled their heart with hard labor;
They stumbled and there was no one to help.
13 
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
And He saved them from their distresses.
14 
He brought them out of darkness and the deep (deathly) darkness
And broke their bonds apart.
15 
Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His wonderful acts to the children of men!
16 
For He has shattered the gates of bronze
And cut the bars of iron apart.

17 
Fools, because of their rebellious way,
And because of their sins, were afflicted.
18 
They detested all kinds of food,
And they drew near to the gates of death.
19 
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
And He saved them from their distresses.
20 
He sent His word and healed them,
And rescued them from their destruction.
21 
Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His wonderful acts to the children of men!
22 
And let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving,
And speak of His deeds with shouts of joy!

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 wonders in the deep.
25 
For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind,
Which lifted up the waves of the sea.
26 
They went up toward the heavens [on the crest of the wave], they went down again to the depths [of the watery trough];
Their courage melted away in their misery.
27 
They staggered and trembled like a drunken man,
And were at their wits’ end [all their wisdom was useless].
28 
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
And He brought them out of their distresses.
29 
He hushed the storm to a gentle whisper,
So that the waves of the sea were still.
30 
Then they were glad because of the calm,
And He guided them to their desired haven (harbor).
31 
Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His wonderful acts to the children of men!
32 
Let them exalt Him also in the congregation of the people,
And 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 productive land into a [barren] salt 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 has the hungry dwell,
So that they may establish an inhabited city,
37 
And sow fields and plant vineyards,
And produce an abundant harvest.
38 
Also He blesses them so that they multiply greatly,
And He does not let [the number of] their cattle decrease.

39 
When they are diminished and bowed down (humbled)
Through oppression, misery, and sorrow,
40 
He pours contempt on princes
And makes them wander in a pathless wasteland.
41 
Yet He sets the needy securely on high, away from affliction,
And makes their families like a flock.
42 
The upright see it and rejoice;
But all unrighteousness shuts its mouth.
43 
Who is wise? Let him observe and heed these things;
And [thoughtfully] consider the lovingkindness of the Lord.
