Why does the spelling look unusual?
O giue thankes vnto the Lord, for hee is good: for his mercie endureth for euer.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so: whome he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemie:
And gathered them out of the lands, from the East and from the West: from the North and from the South.
They wandred in the wildernes, in a solitary way: they found no citie to dwell in.
Hungry and thirstie: their soule fainted in them.
Then they cryed vnto the Lord in their trouble: and he deliuered them out of their distresses.
And hee led them forth by the right way: that they might goe to a citie of habitation.
Oh that men would praise the Lord, for his goodnesse: and for his wonderfull workes to the children of men.
For he satisfieth the longing soule: and filleth the hungry soule with goodnesse.
Such as sit in darknesse and in the shadowe of death: being bound in affliction and yron:
Because they rebelled against the words of God: and contemned the counsell of the most high:
Therefore hee brought downe their heart with labour: they fel downe, and there was none to helpe.
Then they cryed vnto the Lord in their trouble: and he saued them out of their distresses.
Hee brought them out of darkenesse, and the shadowe of death: and brake their bands insunder.
Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodnesse: and for his wonderfull workes to the children of men.
For he hath broken the gates of brasse: and cut the barres of yron in sunder.
Fooles, because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.
Their soule abhorreth all manner of meate: and they drawe neere vnto the gates of death.
Then they crie vnto the Lord in their trouble: he saueth them out of their distresses.
Hee sent his word, and healed them: and deliuered them from their destructions.
Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodnesse: and for his wonderfull workes, to the children of men.
And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thankesgiuing: and declare his workes with reioycing.
They that goe downe to the sea in shippes: that doe businesse in great waters:
These see the workes of the Lord: and his wonders in the deepe.
For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy winde: which lifteth vp the waues thereof.
They mount vp to the heauen: they goe downe againe to the depthes: their soule is melted because of trouble.
They reele to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man; and are at their wits end.
Then they cry vnto the Lord in their trouble: and hee bringeth them out of their distresses.
He maketh the storme a calme: so that the waues thereof are still.
Then are they glad, because they be quiet: so he bringeth them vnto their desired hauen.
Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodnesse; and for his wonderfull workes to the children of men:
Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the Elders.
Hee turneth riuers into a wildernesse: and the water springs into dry ground:
A fruitfull land into barrennesse; for the wickednesse of them that dwell therein.
He turneth the wildernesse into a standing water: and dry ground into water-springs.
And there he maketh the hungry to dwell; that they may prepare a citie for habitation,
And sowe the fields, and plant vineyards; which may yeeld fruits of increase.
He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly: and suffreth not their cattell to decrease.
Againe, they are minished and brought lowe through oppression, affliction and sorrow.
Hee powreth contempt vpon princes: and causeth them to wander in the wildernesse, where there is no way.
Yet setteth he the poore on high from affliction: and maketh him families like a flocke.
The righteous shall see it, and reioyce; and all iniquitie shall stop her mouth.
Who so is wise, and will obserue those things; euen they shall vnderstand the louing kindenesse of the Lord.

Timothy Wayne George's Psalms Chapter 107 comment on 5/15/2013, 7:09am...
The theme of this Psalm O that men would praise the Lord, for His goodness, and wonderful works to the children of men. Over and over we find ourselves in trouble for the past mistakes we have made, but when we cry to the Lord in our affliction, He delivers us from all our trouble. Always praise the Lord, for He is good, and His mercy endures forever.

I love this Bible verse because it builds me up.
Alex's Psalms Chapter 107 comment on 2/17/2013, 4:00pm...
Psalms 107:4-5 talks about those who cannot find their place in life, verses 10-11: those entangled in bondage ad trapped in darkness, verse 19-22: those whose sin reduces them to fool, verse 23-24 those who veered off course after all the good things God has done for them, they give the reward to themselves instead of being rewarded by God. Any difficult situation that they faced GOD still came through for them. We might be born again children of God but if we donít understand the love of God, we are going to live a miserable life. These people spoken in this chapter know that it is God who could save them; when they cried to the Lord he heard them. What does the Lord mean? The Lord means owner, we donít own our lives but Jesus owns them. We are going to face challenges in life and if we understand how much he loves us, life will be full of joy. And to know the love of Christ, which passeth all knowledge, that ye might b filled with all the fullness of GOD, Ephesians 3:17-19.
Bobbie L Smith's Psalms Chapter 107 comment about verse 20 on 1/18/2013, 6:14pm...
Read this commentary on this scripture, I found it helpful:
Verse 20, Recovery from sickness must be ascribed to the Lord, and gratitude should flow forth because of it. But the text describes spiritual and mental sickness. Notice, the Patient in his extremity. He is a fool: by nature inclined to evil. He has played the fool (see Psalms 107:17 ), "transgression", "iniquities." He now has lost all appetite and is past all cure. He is at death's door. But he has begun to pray. The Cure is in its simplicity.

Tina Rhea Sheffield's Psalms Chapter 107 comment about verse 2 on 9/23/2011, 12:38am...
I believe that 107:2 is referring to 107:1 and so we're to testify and give thanks for God's goodness and mercy. For, truly God is good and merciful!
