He makes springs1 pour water into the ravines; it flows between the mountains.
They give water2 to all the beasts of the field; the wild donkeys3 quench their thirst.
The birds of the air4 nest by the waters; they sing among the branches.513
He waters the mountains6 from his upper chambers;7 the earth is satisfied by the fruit of his work.814
He makes grass grow9 for the cattle, and plants for man to cultivate-- bringing forth food10 from the earth:
wine11 that gladdens the heart of man, oil12 to make his face shine, and bread that sustains13 his heart.
The trees of the LORD14 are well watered, the cedars of Lebanon15 that he planted.
There the birds16 make their nests; the stork has its home in the pine trees.
The high mountains belong to the wild goats;17 the crags are a refuge for the coneys.a1819
The moon marks off the seasons,19 and the sun20 knows when to go down.
You bring darkness,21 it becomes night,22 and all the beasts of the forest23 prowl.
