Psalms 104

The  Lord’s Care over All His Works.

a Bless the  Lord, O my soul!
O  Lord my God, You are very great;
You are b clothed with splendor and majesty,
Covering Yourself with c light as with a cloak,
d Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain.
Lit The one who
He f lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters;
Lit The one who
He makes the h clouds His chariot;
Lit The one who
He walks upon the j wings of the wind;
Lit Who
He makes
Or His angels, spirits
m the winds His messengers,
Or His ministers flames of fire
Flaming o fire His ministers.

He p established the earth upon its foundations,
So that it will not
Or move out of place
totter forever and ever.
You r covered it with the deep as with a garment;
The waters were standing above the mountains.
At Your s rebuke they fled,
At the t sound of Your thunder they hurried away.
The mountains rose; the valleys sank down
To the u place which You established for them.
You set a v boundary that they may not pass over,
So that they will not return to cover the earth.

Lit The one who sends
He sends forth x springs in the valleys;
They flow between the mountains;
11 They y give drink to every beast of the field;
The z wild donkeys quench their thirst.
Or Over, Above
Beside them the birds of the heavens ab dwell;
Lit give forth
lift up their voices among the branches.
Lit Who
He ae waters the mountains from His upper chambers;
af The earth is satisfied with the fruit of His works.

Lit Who
He causes the ah grass to grow for the
Or beasts
And aj vegetation for the
Or cultivation by or service of
labor of man,
So that
Or He
he may bring forth
Lit bread
food an from the earth,
15 And ao wine which makes man’s heart glad,
ap So that he may make his face glisten with oil,
Lit bread
food which ar sustains man’s heart.
16 The trees of the  Lord
Lit are satisfied
drink their fill,
The cedars of Lebanon which He planted,
17 Where the at birds build their nests,
And the au stork, whose home is the
Or cypress
fir trees.

18 The high mountains are for the aw wild goats;
The ax cliffs are a refuge for the
Small, shy, furry animals (Hyrax syriacus) found in the peninsula of the Sinai, northern Israel, and the region round the Dead Sea; KJV coney, orig NASB rock badgers
az shephanim.
19 He made the moon ba for the seasons;
The bb sun knows the place of its setting.
20 You bc appoint darkness and it becomes night,
In which all the bd beasts of the forest
Lit creep
prowl about.
21 The bf young lions roar after their prey
Lit And to seek
And bh seek their food from God.
22  When the sun rises they withdraw
And lie down in their bi dens.
23 Man goes forth to bj his work
And to his labor until evening.

24 O  Lord, how bk many are Your works!
Or With
In bm wisdom You have made them all;
The bn earth is full of Your
Or creatures
Or This
There is the bq sea, great and
Or broad of dimensions (lit hands)
In which are swarms without number,
Animals both small and great.
26 There the bs ships move along,
Or a sea monster
bu Leviathan, which You have formed to sport in it.

27 They all bv wait for You
To bw give them their food in
Lit its appointed time
due season.
28 You give to them, they gather it up;
You by open Your hand, they are satisfied with good.
29 You bz hide Your face, they are dismayed;
You ca take away their
Or breath
spirit, they expire
And cc return to their dust.
30 You send forth Your
Or breath
ce Spirit, they are created;
And You renew the face of the ground.

31 Let the cf glory of the  Lord endure forever;
Let the  Lord cg be glad in His works;
Lit The one who
He ci looks at the earth, and it cj trembles;
He ck touches the mountains, and they smoke.
Or Let me sing
I will sing to the  Lord
Lit in my lifetime
cn as long as I live;
Or Let me sing
I will cp sing praise to my God
Lit while I still am
while I have my being.
34 Let my cr meditation be pleasing to Him;
As for me, I shall cs be glad in the  Lord.
35 Let sinners be ct consumed from the earth
And let the cu wicked be no more.
cv Bless the  Lord, O my soul.
Or Hallelujah!
cx Praise
Heb  Yah
the  Lord!
