Psalm 107:33 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He turneth rivers into a wilderness - After having, as above, illustrated the state of the Jews in their captivity, and the deliverance which God wrought for them, he now turns to the general conduct of God in reference to the poor and needy; and his gracious Interpositions in their behalf, the providential supply of their wants, and his opposition to their oppressors. On account of the wickedness of men, he sometimes changes a fruitful land into a desert. See the general state of Egypt in the present time: once a fertile land; now an arid, sandy wilderness.

1 Kings 17:7
Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land.
It was you who opened up springs and streams; you dried up the ever-flowing rivers.
In a very short time, will not Lebanon be turned into a fertile field and the fertile field seem like a forest?
I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their vegetation; I will turn rivers into islands and dry up the pools.
When I came, why was there no one? When I called, why was there no one to answer? Was my arm too short to deliver you? Do I lack the strength to rescue you? By a mere rebuke I dry up the sea, I turn rivers into a desert; their fish rot for lack of water and die of thirst.
When the LORD could no longer endure your wicked actions and the detestable things you did, your land became a curse and a desolate waste without inhabitants, as it is today.
