PSALMS · Chapter 104
104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, you are very great;
you are clothed with honour and majesty.
104:2 Who cover yourself with light as with a garment: who stretch out the heavens like a curtain:
104:3 Who lays the beams of his chambers in the waters: who makes the clouds his chariot: who walks upon the wings of the wind:
104:4 Who makes his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
104:5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.
104:6 You covered it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
104:7 At your rebuke they fled; at the voice of your thunder they hasted away.
104:8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which you have founded for them.
104:9 You have set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
104:10 He sends 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 waters the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your works.
104:14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
104:15 And wine that makes glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengthens man's heart.
104:16 The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he has 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 appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knows his going down.
104:20 You make darkness, and it is night: wherein 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 arises, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.
104:23 Man goes forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
104:24 O LORD, how manifold are your works! in wisdom have you made them all: the earth is full of your riches.
104:25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
104:26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan (p. sea serpent), whom you have made to play therein.
104:27 These wait all upon you; that you may give them their food in due season.
104:28 That you give them they gather: you open your hand, they are filled with good.
104:29 You hide your face, they are troubled: you take away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.
104:30 You send forth your spirit, they are created: and you renew 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 looks on the earth, and it trembles: he touches the hills, and they smoke.
104:33 I will sing unto 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 the LORD.
104:35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless you the LORD, O my soul. Praise all of you the LORD.
