Coverdale(i) 1 O geue thankes vnto the LORDE, for he is gracious, and his mercy endureth for euer. 2 Let them geue thakes whom the LORDE hath redemed, & delyuered from the hande of the enemie. 3 And gathered the out of the londes, fro the east, fro the west, fro the north & from the south. 4 They wente astraye in the wildernesse in an vntroden waye, & founde no cite to dwell in. 5 Hongrie & thirstie, & their soule faynted in the. 6 So they cried vnto the LORDE in their trouble, & he delyuered the from their distresse. 7 He led the forth by ye right waie, yt they might go to ye cite where they dwelt. 8 O that me wolde prayse the goodnesse of the LORDE, & the wonders that he doth for the childre of me. 9 For he satisfied the emptie soule, & fylled the hongrie soule wt good. 10 Soch as sat in darcknesse and in the shadowe of death, beynge fast bounde in misery & yron. 11 Because they were not obediet to the comaundementes of God, but lightly regarded the councell of the most highest. 12 Their herte was vexed with labor, they fell downe, & there was none to helpe them. 13 So they cried vnto the LORDE in their trouble, & he delyuered them out of their distresse. 14 He brought the out of darcknesse & out of the shadowe of death, & brake their bondes in sonder. 15 O that men wolde prayse the goodnesse of the LORDE, & the woders that he doth for the childre of men. 16 For he hath broken the gates of brasse, & smitte the barres of yron in sonder. 17 Foolish me were plaged for their offence, & because of their wickednesse. 18 Their soule abhorred all maner of meate, they were eue harde at deathes dore. 19 So they cried vnto the LORDE in their trouble, & he delyuered the out of their distresse. 20 He sent his worde & healed the, & saued the from destruccion. 21 O that men wolde prayse the goodnesse of the LORDE, & the wonders that he doth for the children of men. 22 That they wolde offre vnto him the sacrifice of thankesgeuynge, and tell out his workes with gladnes. 23 They that go downe to the see in shippes, & occupie their busynesse in greate waters. 24 These men se the workes of the LORDE, & his wonders in the depe. 25 For at his worde, the stormy wynde aryseth, and lifteth vp the wawes therof. 26 They are caried vp to the heauen, & downe agayne to the depe, their soule melteth awaye in the trouble. 27 They rele to and fro, they stacker like a droncken man, and are at their wittes ende. 28 So they crie vnto the LORDE in their trouble, & he delyuereth the out of their distresse. 29 He maketh the storme to ceasse, so that the wawes are still. 30 The are they glad because they be at rest, & so he bryngeth them vnto the hauen where they wolde be. 31 O that men wolde prayse the goodnes of the LORDE, and the wonders that he doth for the children of men. 32 That they wolde exalte him in the cogregacion of the people, & loaue him in the seate of the elders. 33 Which turneth the floudes in to drie londe, and drieth vp the water sprynges. 34 A frutefull londe maketh he baren, for the wickednesse of them that dwell therin. 35 Agayne, he maketh the wildernes a stondinge water, and water sprynges of a drye grounde. 36 There he setteth the hongrie, that they maye buylde them a cite to dwell in. 37 That they maye sowe their groude, plante vynyaydes, to yelde them frutes of increase. 38 He blesseth them, so that they multiplie exceadingly, and suffreth not their catell to decrease. 39 Whe they are minished & brought lowe thorow oppressio, thorow eny plage or trouble. 40 Though he suffre the to be euell intreated thorow tyrauntes, or let them wandre out of the waye in the wildernesse: 41 Yet helpeth he the poore out of misery (at the last) and maketh him an housholde like a flocke of shepe. 42 The rightuous wil cosidre this and reioyse, the mouth of all wickednesse shall be stopped. 43 Who so is wyse, and pondreth these thinges well, shall vnderstonde the louynge kyndnesses of the LORDE.
