Psalms 104

1Bless Jehovah, O my soul. O Jehovah my God, thou are very great. Thou are clothed with honor and majesty, 2who covers thyself with light as with a garment, who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, 3who lays the beams of his chambers in the waters, who makes the clouds his chariot, who walks upon the wings of the wind, 4who makes his agents spirits, his ministers a flame of fire, 5who laid the foundations of the earth that it should not be moved forever. 6Thou covered it with the deep as with a vesture. The waters stood above the mountains. 7At thy rebuke they fled. At the voice of thy thunder they hastened away. 8The mountains rose, the valleys sank down to the place which thou had founded for them. 9Thou have set a bound that they may not pass over, that they turn not again to cover the earth. 10He sends forth springs into the valleys. They run among the mountains. 11They give drink to every beast of the field. The wild donkeys quench their thirst. 12By them the birds of the heavens have their habitation. They sing among the branches. 13He waters the mountains from his chambers. The earth is filled with the fruit of thy works. 14He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and herbage for the service of man, that he may bring forth food out of the earth, 15and wine that makes glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread that strengthens man's heart. 16The trees of Jehovah are full, the cedars of Lebanon, which he has planted, 17where the birds make their nests. As for the stork, the fir trees are her house. 18The high mountains are for the wild goats. The rocks are a refuge for the conies. 19He appointed the moon for seasons. The sun knows his going down. 20Thou make darkness, and it is night, during which all the beasts of the forest creep forth. 21The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their food from God. 22The sun arises; they get away, and lie down in their dens. 23Man goes forth to his work and to his labor until the evening. 24O Jehovah, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom have thou made them all. The earth is full of thy riches. 25Yonder is the sea, great and wide, in which are innumerable creeping things, both small and great beasts. 26There go the ships. There is leviathan, whom thou have formed to play in it. 27These all wait for thee, that thou may give them their food in due season. 28Thou give to them, they gather. Thou open thy hand, they are satisfied with good. 29Thou hide thy face, they are troubled. Thou take away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. 30Thou send forth thy Spirit, they are created, and thou renew the face of the ground. 31Let the glory of Jehovah endure forever. Let Jehovah rejoice in his works, 32who looks on the earth, and it trembles. He touches the mountains, and they smoke. 33I will sing to Jehovah as long as I live. I will sing praise to my God while I have any being. 34Let thy meditation be sweet to him. I will rejoice in Jehovah. 35Let sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless Jehovah, O my soul. Praise ye Jehovah.
