Psalm 107 - floods

Don't ask why - but Psalm 107 the last 10 or so verses got onto my list - random order for translation. Here, of the LORD, it is written that He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings. Well, of course one would not translate without experience, so our house got flooded the day after I translated these words. The floods have subsided. And they are meant to have been productive in this case, though later in these verses, the poet also speaks of calamity. Perhaps a little taste of both.
