Brenton Septuagint Translation
His Loving Kindness Endures Forever
1Alleluia. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his mercy endures for ever.
2Let them say so who have been redeemed by the Lord, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
3and gathered them out of the countries, from the east, and west, and north, and south.
4They wandered in the wilderness in a dry land; they found no way to a city of habitation.
5Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
6Then they cried to the Lord in their affliction, and he delivered them out of their distresses.
7And he guided them into a straight path, that they might go to a city of habitation.
8Let them acknowledge to the Lord his mercies, and his wonderful works to the children of men.
9For he satisfies the empty soul, and fills the hungry soul with good things,
10even them that sit in darkness and the shadow of death, fettered in poverty and iron;
11because they rebelled against the words of God, and provoked the counsel of the Most High.
12So their heart was brought low with troubles; they were weak, and there was no helper.
13Then they cried to the Lord in their affliction, and he saved them out of their distresses.
14And he brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their bonds asunder.
15Let them acknowledge to the Lord his mercies, and his wonders to the children of men.
16For he broke to pieces the brazen gates, and crushed the iron bars.
17He helped them out of the way of their iniquity; for they were brought low because of their iniquities.
18Their soul abhorred all meat; and they drew near to the gates of death.
19Then they cried to the Lord in their affliction, and he saved them out of their distresses.
20He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them out of their destructions.
21Let them acknowledge to the Lord his mercies, and his wonderful works to the children of men.
22And let them offer to him the sacrifice of praise, and proclaim this works with exultation.
23They that go down to the sea in ships, doing business in many waters;
24these men have seen the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.
25He speaks, and the stormy wind arises, and its waves are lifted up.
26They go up to the heavens, and go down to the depths; their soul melts because of troubles.
27They are troubled, they stagger as a drunkard, and all their wisdom is swallowed up.
28Then they cry to the Lord in their affliction, and he brings them out of their distresses.
29And he commands the storm, and it is calmed into a gentle breeze, and its waves are still.
30And they are glad, because they are quiet; and he guides them to their desire haven.
31Let them acknowledge to the Lord his mercies, and his wonderful works to the children of men.
32Let them exalt him in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the seat of the elders.
33He turns rivers into a desert, and streams of water into a dry land;
34a fruitful land into saltness, for the wickedness of them that dwell in it.
35He turns a wilderness into pools of water, and a dry land into streams of water.
36And there he causes the hungry to dwell, and they establish for themselves cities of habitation.
37And they sow fields, and plant vineyards, and they yield fruit of increase.
38And he blesses them, and they multiply exceedingly, and he diminishes not the number of their cattle.
39Again they become few, and are brought low, by the pressure of evils and pain.
40Contempt is poured upon their princes, and he causes them to wander in a desert and trackless land.
41But he helps the poor out of poverty, and makes him families as a flock.
42The upright shall see and rejoice; and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
43Who is wise, and will observe these things, and understand the mercies of the Lord?
