Psalm 104

1 (103-1) <For David himself.> Bless the Lord, O my soul: O Lord my God, thou art exceedingly great. Thou hast put on praise and beauty:
2 (103-2) And art clothed with light as with a garment. Who stretchest out the heaven like a pavilion:
3 (103-3) Who coverest the higher rooms thereof with water. Who makest the clouds thy chariot: who walkest upon the wings of the winds.
4 (103-4) Who makest thy angels spirits: and thy ministers a burning fire.
5 (103-5) Who hast founded the earth upon its own bases: it shall not be moved for ever and ever.
6 (103-6) The deep like a garment is its clothing: above the mountains shall the waters stand.
7 (103-7) At thy rebuke they shall flee: at the voice of thy thunder they shall fear.
8 (103-8) The mountains ascend, and the plains descend into the place which thou hast founded for them.
9 (103-9) Thou hast set a bound which they shall not pass over; neither shall they return to cover the earth.
10 (103-10) Thou sendest forth springs in the vales: between the midst of the hills the waters shall pass.
11 (103-11) All the beasts of the field shall drink: the wild asses shall expect in their thirst.
12 (103-12) Over them the birds of the air shall dwell: from the midst of the rocks they shall give forth their voices.
13 (103-13) Thou waterest the hills from thy upper rooms: the earth shall be filled with the fruit of thy works:
14 (103-14) Bringing forth grass for cattle, and herb for the service of men. That thou mayst bring bread out of the earth:
15 (103-15) And that wine may cheer the heart of man. That he may make the face cheerful with oil: and that bread may strengthen man’s heart.
16 (103-16) The trees of the field shall be filled, and the cedars of Libanus which he hath planted:
17 (103-17) There the sparrows shall make their nests. The highest of them is the house of the heron.
18 (103-18) The high hills are a refuge for the harts, the rock for the irchins.
19 (103-19) He hath made the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
20 (103-20) Thou hast appointed darkness, and it is night: in it shall all the beasts of the woods go about:
21 (103-21) The young lions roaring after their prey, and seeking their meat from God.
22 (103-22) The sun ariseth, and they are gathered together: and they shall lie down in their dens.
23 (103-23) Man shall go forth to his work, and to his labour until the evening.
24 (103-24) How great are thy works, O Lord? thou hast made all things in wisdom: the earth is filled with thy riches.
25 (103-25) So is this great sea, which stretcheth wide its arms: there are creeping things without number: Creatures little and great.
26 (103-26) There the ships shall go. This sea dragon which thou hast formed to play therein.
27 (103-27) All expect of thee that thou give them food in season.
28 (103-28) What thou givest to them they shall gather up: when thou openest thy hand, they shall all be filled with good.
29 (103-29) But if thou turnest away thy face, they shall be troubled: thou shalt take away their breath, and they shall fail, and shall return to their dust.
30 (103-30) Thou shalt send forth thy spirit, and they shall be created: and thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
31 (103-31) May the glory of the Lord endure for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works.
32 (103-32) He looketh upon the earth, and maketh it tremble: he troubleth the mountains, and they smoke.
33 (103-33) I will sing to the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
34 (103-34) Let my speech be acceptable to him: but I will take delight in the Lord.
35 (103-35) Let sinners be consumed out of the earth, and the unjust, so that they be no more: O my soul, bless thou the Lord.
