Psalm 107. Confitemini Domino.

23 They that go down to the / sea in / ships * and occupy their / business in / great / waters;
24 These men see the / works of the / LORD * and his / wonders / in the / deep.
25 For at his word the stormy / wind a/riseth * which lifteth / up the / waves there/of.
26 They are carried up to the heaven, and down a/gain to the / deep; * their soul melteth a/way be/cause of the / trouble.                                                                                                                    27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a / drunken / man, * and are / at their / wit’s /end.
28 So when they cry unto the LORD / in their / trouble * he delivereth them / out of / their dis/tress.
29 For he maketh the / storm to / cease * so that the / waves there/of are / still.
30 Then are they glad, because they / are at / rest * and so he bringeth them unto the / haven where / they would / be.
31 O that men would therefore praise the / LORD for his / goodness; * and declare the wonders that he / doeth for the / children of / men!
32 That they would exalt him also in the congre/gation of the / people * and praise him / in the / seat of the / elders!
