English Standard Version
17 Some were (A)fools through their sinful ways,
and because of their iniquities suffered affliction;
18 (B)they loathed any kind of food,
and they (C)drew near to (D)the gates of death.
19 (E)Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
20 He (F)sent out his word and (G)healed them,
and (H)delivered them from their destruction.
21 (I)Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
22 And let them (J)offer sacrifices of thanksgiving,
and (K)tell of his deeds in (L)songs of joy!
