11Bless the LORD, O my soul ! O LORD my God, You are verygreat ; You are 2clothed with splendor and majesty,
2Covering Yourself with 3light as with a cloak, 4Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain.
3aHe 5lays the beams of His upperchambers in the waters ; bHe makes the 6clouds His chariot ; cHe walks upon the 7wings of the wind ;
4dHe makese8the winds His messengers, fFlaming9fire His ministers.
He 10established the earth upon its foundations, So that it will not gtotterforever and ever.
You 11covered it with the deep as with a garment ; The waters were standingabove the mountains.
At Your 12rebuke they fled, At the 13sound of Your thunder they hurriedaway.
The mountainsrose ; the valleyssankdown To the 14placewhich You established for them.
You set a 15boundary that they may not passover, So that they will not return to cover the earth.
10hHe sends forth 16springs in the valleys ; They flowbetween the mountains ;
They 17givedrink to everybeast of the field ; The 18wilddonkeysquench their thirst.
12iBeside them the birds of the heavens19dwell ; They jlift up their voicesamong the branches.
13kHe 20waters the mountains from His upperchambers ; 21The earth is satisfied with the fruit of His works.
14lHe causes the 22grass to grow for the mcattle, And 23vegetation for the nlabor of man, So that ohe may bringforthpfood24from the earth,
And 25wine which makesman'sheartglad, 26So that he may make his faceglisten with oil, And qfood which 27sustainsman'sheart.
The trees of the LORDrdrink their fill, The cedars of Lebanonwhich He planted,
17Where the 28birdsbuild their nests, And the 29stork, whose home is the sfirtrees.
The highmountains are for the 30wildgoats ; The 31cliffs are a refuge for the t32shephanim.
He made the moon33for the seasons ; The 34sunknows the place of its setting.
You 35appointdarkness and it becomesnight, In which all the 36beasts of the forestuprowlabout.
The 37younglionsroar after their preyvAnd 38seek their food from God.
When the sunrises they withdraw And liedown in their 39dens.
23Mangoesforth to 40his work And to his laboruntilevening.
O LORD, how41many are Your works ! wIn 42wisdom You have made them all ; The 43earth is full of Your xpossessions.
25yThere is the 44sea, great and zbroad, In which are swarmswithoutnumber, Animals both small and great.
26There the 45shipsmove along, And aa46Leviathan, which You have formed to sport in it.
They all47wait for You To 48give them their food in bbdue season.
You give to them, they gather it up; You 49open Your hand, they are satisfied with good.
You 50hide Your face, they are dismayed ; You 51takeaway their ccspirit, they expire And 52return to their dust.
You send forth Your dd53Spirit, they are created ; And You renew the face of the ground.
Let the 54glory of the LORDendureforever ; Let the LORD55be glad in His works ;
32eeHe 56looks at the earth, and it 57trembles ; He 58touches the mountains, and they smoke.
33ffI will sing to the LORDgg59as long as I live ; hhI will 60singpraise to my Godiiwhile I have my being.
Let my 61meditation be pleasing to Him; As for me, I shall 62be glad in the LORD.
Let sinners be 63consumed from the earth And let the 64wicked be nomore. 65Bless the LORD, O my soul. jj66Praisekkthe LORD !
