Psalm 107

Let them offer a sacrifice in thanks,
declare his works with shouts of joy.
Some went off to sea in ships,
plied their trade on the deep waters.
They saw the works of the LORD,
the wonders of God in the deep.
He spoke and roused a storm wind;
tossed the waves on high.
They rose up to the heavens, sank to the depths;
their hearts trembled at the danger.
They reeled, staggered like drunkards;
their skill was of no avail.
In their distress they cried to the LORD,
who brought them out of their peril,
Hushed the storm to a murmur; the
waves of the sea were stilled.
They rejoiced that the sea grew calm,
that God brought them to the harbor they longed for.
Let them thank the LORD for such kindness,
such wondrous deeds for mere mortals.
The upright saw this and rejoiced;
all wickedness shut its mouth.
Whoever is wise will take note of these things,
will ponder the merciful deeds of the LORD

Psalm 107: 22-31, 42-43.
