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!

23 Some (M)went down to the sea in ships,
    doing business on the great waters;
24 they saw the deeds of the Lord,
    his wondrous works in the deep.
25 For he (N)commanded and (O)raised the stormy wind,
    which lifted up the waves of the sea.
26 They mounted up to heaven; they went down to the depths;
    their courage (P)melted away in their evil plight;
27 they reeled and (Q)staggered like drunken men
    and (R)were at their wits' end.[a]
28 (S)Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
    and he delivered them from their distress.
29 He (T)made the storm be still,
    and the waves of the sea were hushed.
30 Then they were glad that the waters[b] were quiet,
    and he brought them to their desired haven.
31 (U)Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
    for his wondrous works to the children of man!
32 Let them (V)extol him in (W)the congregation of the people,
    and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
