107:33 He turned streams into a desert,
springs of water into arid land,
107:34 and a fruitful land into a barren place,
because of the sin of its inhabitants.
107:35 As for his people, he turned a desert into a pool of water,
and a dry land into springs of water.
107:36 He allowed the hungry to settle there,
and they established a city in which to live.
107:37 They cultivated fields,
and planted vineyards,
which yielded a harvest of fruit.
107:38 He blessed them so that they became very numerous.
He would not allow their cattle to decrease in number.
107:39 As for their enemies, they decreased in number and were beaten down,
because of painful distress and suffering.
107:40 He would pour contempt upon princes,
and he made them wander in a wasteland with no road.
107:41 Yet he protected the needy from oppression,
and cared for his families like a flock of sheep.
