  • 1 Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!
    2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble
    3 and gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.
    4 Some wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to a city to dwell in;
    5 hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them.
    6 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.
    7 He led them by a straight way till they reached a city to dwell in.
    8 Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man!
    9 For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.
    10 Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, prisoners in affliction and in irons,
    11 for they had rebelled against the words of God, and spurned the counsel of the Most High.
    12 So he bowed their hearts down with hard labor; they fell down, with none to help.
    13 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.
    14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and burst their bonds apart.
    15 Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man!
    16 For he shatters the doors of bronze and cuts in two the bars of iron.
    17 Some were fools through their sinful ways, and because of their iniquities suffered affliction;
    18 they loathed any kind of food, and they drew near to the gates of death.
    19 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.
    20 He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.
    21 Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man!
    22 And let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, and tell of his deeds in songs of joy!

Thinking & Understanding
This poen is one of praise and thanksgiving (vv. 8,15,21,31) of God’s amazing work of salvation and steadfast love, which the Israelites experienced on their return from Babylon(vv. 6,13,19,28). First, the poet praised the event of the Israelites being saved from the wilderness as they journeyed to their homeland (vv. 4-9). Then, the poet praised God for their salvation from the punishment of being slaves in foreign nations (vv. 10-16). The third part of the psalm is the song of Israel, praising the wondrous salvation of God who healed, with one word, his foolish people who had suffered affliction as a consequence of their rebellion and who had stood at death’s door (vv. 17-22).

Who is God?
Vv. 1-3 God did not forget but kept the covenant. God judged his people, yet he did not give up on them. Although the land of the chosen people had been destroyed, the Lord’s goodness and steadfast love sustained his Kingdom. So, no matter what anyone says, we can testify that we have experienced God’s incredible grace. No matter what our situations may be, we will always have something to be grateful for.

What lesson is God teaching me?
Vv. 10-16 The people of Israel disobeyed God’s word and brought upon themselves the suffering of being bound in chains and trapped in darkness, and facing death. When they appealed for the mercy of God, who had raised a hand of judgement against them, the Lord did not ignore their distress. When we suffer, the first thing to do is to seek the Lord and cry out to him. Whatever that suffering may be, entrust it to the Lord so that he may end, break or overturn it.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for the grace by which you heard our cries, saved us, released us, and healed us.
