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 [a]wonders in the deep. 25 For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind, Which lifted up the waves [b]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 [c]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 [d]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 [e]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 [f]changes rivers into a [g]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 [h]changes a [i]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 [j]an inhabited city, 37 And sow fields and plant vineyards, And [k]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 [l]princes And makes them wander in a pathless waste. 41 But He sets the needy [m]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.
