Man goes out to his work and to his labor until evening.
How countless are Your works, Lord! In wisdom You have made them all; the earth is full of Your creatures.a25
Here is the sea, vast and wide, teeming with creaturesb beyond number- living things both large and small.
There the ships move about, and Leviathan,c which You formed to play there.
All of them wait for You to give them their food at the right time.
When You give it to them, they gather it; when You open Your hand, they are satisfied with good things.
When You hide Your face, they are terrified; when You take away their breath, they die and return to the dust.
When You send Your breath,d they are created, and You renew the face of the earth.
May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in His works.
He looks at the earth, and it trembles; He touches the mountains, and they pour out smoke.
I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God while I live.
