33  The Lord turns rivers into wilderness 
   and water springs into thirsty ground;
34  A fruitful land he makes a salty waste, 
   because of the wickedness of those who dwell there.
35  He makes the wilderness a pool of water 
   and water springs out of a thirsty land.
36  There he settles the hungry 
   and they build a city to dwell in.
37  They sow fields and plant vineyards 
   and bring in a fruitful harvest.
38  He blesses them, so that they multiply greatly; 
   he does not let their herds of cattle decrease.
39  He pours contempt on princes 
   and makes them wander in trackless wastes.
40  They are diminished and brought low, 
   through stress of misfortune and sorrow,
41  But he raises the poor from their misery 
   and multiplies their families like flocks of sheep.
42  The upright will see this and rejoice, 
   but all wickedness will shut its mouth.
43  Whoever is wise will ponder these things 
   and consider the loving-kindness of the Lord.
