Psalms 65

"Praise Awaits You, O God, in Zion"

1 For the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. A Song. Praise awaits You, O God, in Zion; to You our vows will be fulfilled. 2 O You who listen to prayer, all men will come to You. 3 When iniquities prevail against me, You alone atone for our transgressions. 4 Blessed is the one You choose and bring near to dwell in Your courts! We are filled with the goodness of Your house, the holiness of Your temple. 5 With awesome deeds of righteousness You answer us, O God of our salvation, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas. 6 You formed the mountains by Your power, having girded Yourself with might. 7 You stilled the roaring of the seas, the pounding of their waves, and the tumult of the nations. 8 Those who live far away fear Your wonders; You make the dawn and sunset shout for joy. 9 You attend to the earth and water it;
Or and make it overflow
with abundance You enrich it. The streams of God are full of water, for You prepare our grain by providing for [the earth] .
Or to provide the people with grain, for so You have ordained it
10 You soak its furrows and level its ridges; You soften it with showers and bless its growth, 11 You crown the year with Your bounty, and Your paths overflow with plenty. 12 The pastures of the wilderness overflow; the hills are robed with joy. 13 The pastures are clothed with flocks, and the valleys are decked with grain. They shout in triumph; indeed, they sing.
