1Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art verygreat ; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.2
Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:3
Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:4
Who maketh his angelsspirits; his ministers a flamingfire:5
Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever .
Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the watersstood above the mountains.7At thy rebuke they fled ; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
They go upa by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the placewhich thou hast founded for them.
Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over ; that they turn not again to cover the earth.10
He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.11
They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild assesquenchb their thirst.12
By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation , which singcamong the branches.13
He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.14
He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forthfood out of the earth;15
And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oild to make his face to shine , and bread which strengthenethman'sheart.16
The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted ;
Where the birds make their nests : as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.18
The highhills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.19
He appointed the moon for seasons: the sunknoweth his going down.20
Thou makestdarkness, and it is night: wherein all the beastse of the forest do creep forth.
The young lionsroar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.22
The sunariseth , they gather themselves together , and lay them down in their dens.23Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.24
O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.25
So is this great and widesea, wherein are things creepinginnumerable, both small and greatbeasts.26
There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast madef to play therein.
These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.28
That thou givest them they gather : thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.29
Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled : thou takest away their breath, they die , and return to their dust.30
Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created : and thou renewest the face of the earth.31
The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.32
He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth : he toucheth the hills, and they smoke .
I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.34
My meditation of him shall be sweet : I will be glad in the LORD.35
Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul.Praise ye the LORD.
