104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, Thou art very great; Thou art clothed with glory and majesty.
104:2 Who coverest Thyself with light as with a garment, who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain;
104:3 Who layest the beams of Thine upper chambers in the waters, who makest the clouds Thy chariot, who walkest upon the wings of the wind;
104:4 Who makest winds Thy messengers, the flaming fire Thy ministers.
104:5 Who didst establish the earth upon its foundations, that it should not be moved for ever and ever;
104:6 Thou didst cover it with the deep as with a vesture; the waters stood above the mountains.
104:7 At Thy rebuke they fled, at the voice of Thy thunder they hasted away--
104:8 The mountains rose, the valleys sank down--unto the place which Thou hadst founded for them;
104:9 Thou didst set a bound which they should not pass over, that they might not return to cover the earth.
104:10 Who sendest forth springs into the valleys; they run between the mountains;
104:11 They give drink to every beast of the field, the wild asses quench their thirst.
104:12 Beside them dwell the fowl of the heaven, from among the branches they sing.
104:13 Who waterest the mountains from Thine upper chambers; the earth is full of the fruit of Thy works.
104:14 Who causeth the grass to spring up for the cattle, and herb for the service of man; to bring forth bread out of the earth,
104:15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, making the face brighter than oil, and bread that stayeth man's heart.
104:16 The trees of the LORD have their fill, the cedars of Lebanon, which He hath planted;
104:17 Wherein the birds make their nests; as for the stork, the fir-trees are her house.
104:18 The high mountains are for the wild goats; the rocks are a refuge for the conies.
104:19 Who appointedst the moon for seasons; the sun knoweth his going down.
104:20 Thou makest 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 ariseth, they slink away, and couch in their dens.
104:23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
104:24 How manifold are Thy works, O LORD! In wisdom hast Thou made them all; the earth is full of Thy creatures.
104:25 Yonder sea, great and wide, therein are creeping things innumerable, living creatures, both small and great.
104:26 There go the ships; there is leviathan, whom Thou hast formed to sport therein.
104:27 All of them wait for Thee, that Thou mayest give them their food in due season.
104:28 Thou givest it unto them, they gather it; Thou openest Thy hand, they are satisfied with good.
104:29 Thou hidest Thy face, they vanish; Thou withdrawest their breath, they perish, 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 May the glory of the LORD endure for ever; let the LORD rejoice in His works!
104:32 Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He toucheth the mountains, 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 any being.
104:34 Let my musing be sweet unto Him; as for me, I will rejoice in the LORD.
104:35 Let sinners cease out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless the LORD, O my soul. Hallelujah.
