Psalms, Chapter 104

104:1 Bless Yahweh, O my soul. O Yahweh my God, you are very great; You are clothed with grandeur and majesty:
104:2 Covering yourself with light as with a garment; Stretching 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 on the wings of the wind;
104:4 Who makes winds his messengers; Flames of fire his ministers;
104:5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, That it should not be moved forever.
104:6 You covered it with the deep as with a vesture; The waters stood above the mountains.
104:7 At your rebuke they fled; At the voice of your thunder they hurried away
104:8 (The mountains rose, the valleys sank down) To the place which you had founded for them.
104:9 You have set a bound that they may not pass over; That they don't turn again to cover the earth.
104:10 He sends forth springs into the valleys; They run among the mountains;
104:11 They give drink to every beast of the field; The wild donkeys quench their thirst.
104:12 By them the birds of the heavens stay; They sing among the foliage.
104:13 He waters the mountains from his chambers: The earth is filled 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 common man, [And] oil to make his face to shine, And bread that strengthens common man's heart.
104:16 The trees of Yahweh are filled [with moisture], The cedars of Lebanon, which he has planted;
104:17 Where the birds make their nests: As for the stork, her house is on their top.
104:18 The high mountains are for the wild goats; The rocks are a refuge 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, In which all the beasts of the forest creep forth.
104:21 The young lions roar after their prey, And seek their food from God.
104:22 The sun rises, they get them away, And lay them down in their dens.
104:23 Man goes forth to his work And to his labor until the evening.
104:24 O Yahweh, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all: The earth is full of your riches.
104:25 Yonder is the sea, great and wide, In which are innumerable creeping things, Both small and great beasts.
104:26 There go the ships; There is leviathan, whom you have formed to play in it.
104:27 These all wait for you, That you may give them their food in due season.
104:28 You give to them, they gather; You open your hand, they are satisfied 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 ground.
104:31 Let the glory of Yahweh endure forever; Let Yahweh rejoice in his works:
104:32 Who looks on the earth, and it trembles; He touches the mountains, and they smoke.
104:33 I will sing to Yahweh as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have any being.
104:34 Let your meditation be sweet to him: I will rejoice in Yahweh.
104:35 Let sinners be consumed out of the earth. And let the wicked be no more. Bless Yahweh, O my soul. Hallelujah.
