Psalms 104

1 Bless יהוה, O my soul. O יהוה my God (Elohim), You are very great; You are clothed with honor and majesty,

2 Who coverest Yourself with light as with a garment, who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain,

3 Who layeth the beams of His chambers in the waters; Who maketh the clouds His chariot; Who walketh upon the wings of the wind,

4 Who maketh His angels spirits; His ministers a flaming fire,

5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed forever.

6 You coveredst it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains.

7 At Your rebuke they fled; at the voice of Your thunder they hasted away.

8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which You have founded for them.

9 You have set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.

10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.

11 They give drink to every beast of the field; the wild asses quench their thirst.

12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.

13 He watereth the hills from his chambers; the earth is satisfied with the fruit of Your works.

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 earth;

15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.

16 The trees of יהוה are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which He hath planted;

17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.

18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.

19 He appointed the moon for seasons; the sun knoweth His going down.

20 You makest darkness, and it is night; wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.

21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God (Elohim).

22 The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.

23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.

24 O יהוה, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom have You made them all; the earth is full of Your riches.

25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.

26 There go the ships; there is that leviathan, whom You have made to play therein.

27 These wait all upon You; that You mayest give them their meat in due season.

28 That You givest them they gather; You openest Your hand, they are filled with good.

29 You hidest Your face, they are troubled; You takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.

30 You sendest forth Your spirit, they are created; and You renewest the face of the earth.

31 The glory of יהוה shall endure forever; יהוה shall rejoice in His works.

32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.

33 I will sing unto יהוה as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God (Elohim) while I have my being.

34 My meditation of Him shall be sweet; I will be glad in יהוה.

35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless You יהוה, O my soul. 44Praise You יה (Haleluyah).
