104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very
great; thou art clothed with honor and majesty.
104:2 Who coverest [thyself] with light as [with] a garment: who
stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
104:3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who
maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of
104:4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming
104:5 [Who] laid the foundations of the earth, [that] it should
not be removed for ever.
104:6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as [with] a garment: the
waters stood above the mountains.
104:7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they
104:8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys
to the place which thou hast founded for them.
104:9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that
they turn not again to cover the earth.
104:10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, [which] run
among the hills.
104:11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild
asses quench their thirst.
104:12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their
habitation, [which] sing among the branches.
104:13 He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is
satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
104:14 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for
the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the
104:15 And wine [that] maketh glad the heart of man, [and] oil
to make [his] face to shine, and bread [which] strengtheneth
104:16 The trees of the LORD are full [of sap]; the cedars of
Lebanon, which he hath planted;
104:17 Where the birds make their nests: [as for] the stork, the
fir-trees [are] her house.
104:18 The high hills [are] a refuge for the wild goats; [and]
the rocks for the conies.
104:19 He appointeth the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his
104:20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night: in which all the
beasts of the forest do creep [forth].
104:21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their
food from God.
104:22 The sun ariseth, they collect, and lay themselves down in
104:23 Man goeth forth to his work and to his labor until the
104:24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou
made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
104:25 [So is] this great and wide sea, in which [are] creeping
animals innumerable, both small and great beasts.
104:26 There go the ships: [there is] that leviathan, [which]
thou hast made to play therein.
104:27 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give [them]
their food in due season.
104:28 [That which] thou givest them, they gather: thou openest
thy hand, they are filled with good.
104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away
their breath, they die, and return to their dust.
104:30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou
renewest the face of the earth.
104:31 The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD
shall rejoice in his works.
104:32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth
the hills, and they smoke.
104:33 I will sing to the LORD as long as I live: I will sing
praise to my God while I have my being.
104:34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in
104:35 Let sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the
wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye
