▼ Or His angels, spirits, m the winds His messengers,
▼ Or His ministers flames of fireFlaming o fire His ministers.
5He p established the earth upon its foundations,
So that it will not ▼
▼ Or move out of placetotter forever and ever.
6You r covered it with the deep as with a garment;
The waters were standing above the mountains.
7At Your s rebuke they fled,
At the t sound of Your thunder they hurried away.
8The mountains rose; the valleys sank down
To the u place which You established for them.
9You set a v boundary that they may not pass over,
So that they will not return to cover the earth.

They flow between the mountains;
11They y give drink to every beast of the field;
The z wild donkeys quench their thirst.

▼ Lit give forthlift up their voices among the branches.
13 ▼He ae waters the mountains from His upper chambers;
af The earth is satisfied with the fruit of His works.

The cedars of Lebanon which He planted,
17Where the at birds build their nests,
And the au stork, whose home is the ▼
▼ Or cypressfir trees.
18The 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.
19He made the moon ba for the seasons;
