Psalm 104

104:1 Bless, O my soul, Jehovah! Jehovah, my God, Thou hast been very great, Honour and majesty Thou hast put on. 104:2 Covering himself [with] light as a garment, Stretching out the heavens as a curtain, 104:3 Who is laying the beam of His upper chambers in the waters, Who is making thick clouds His chariot, Who is walking on wings of wind, 104:4 Making His messengers--the winds, His ministers--the flaming fire. 104:5 He hath founded earth on its bases, It is not moved to the age and for ever. 104:6 The abyss! as with clothing Thou hast covered it, Above hills do waters stand. 104:7 From Thy rebuke they flee, From the voice of Thy thunder haste away. 104:8 They go up hills--they go down valleys, Unto a place Thou hast founded for them. 104:9 A border Thou hast set, they pass not over, They turn not back to cover the earth.  104:10 Who is sending forth fountains in valleys, Between hills they go on. 104:11 They water every beast of the field, Wild asses break their thirst. 104:12 By them the fowl of the heavens doth dwell, From between the branches They give forth the voice. 104:13 Watering hills from His upper chambers, From the fruit of Thy works is the earth satisfied. 104:14 Causing grass to spring up for cattle, And herb for the service of man, To bring forth bread from the earth, 104:15 And wine--it rejoiceth the heart of man, To cause the face to shine from oil, And bread--the heart of man it supporteth. 104:16 Satisfied [are] the trees of Jehovah, Cedars of Lebanon that He hath planted, 104:17 Where birds do make nests, The stork--the firs [are] her house. 104:18 The high hills [are] for wild goats, Rocks [are] a refuge for conies,  104:19 He made the moon for seasons, The sun hath known his place of entrance. 104:20 Thou settest darkness, and it is night, In it doth every beast of the forest creep. 104:21 The young lions are roaring for prey, And to seek from God their food. 104:22 The sun riseth, they are gathered, And in their dens they crouch. 104:23 Man goeth forth to his work, And to his service--till evening. 104:24 How many have been Thy works, O Jehovah, All of them in wisdom Thou hast made, Full is the earth of thy possessions. 104:25 This, the sea, great and broad of sides, There [are] moving things--innumerable, Living creatures--small with great. 104:26 There do ships go: leviathan, That Thou hast formed to play in it. 104:27 All of them unto Thee do look, To give their food in its season. 104:28 Thou dost give to them--they gather, Thou dost open Thy hand--they [are] satisfied [with] good. 104:29 Thou hidest Thy face--they are troubled, Thou gatherest their spirit--they expire, And unto their dust they turn back. 104:30 Thou sendest out Thy Spirit, they are created, And Thou renewest the face of the ground.  104:31 The honour of Jehovah is to the age, Jehovah rejoiceth in His works, 104:32 Who is looking to earth, and it trembleth, He cometh against hills, and they smoke. 104:33 I sing to Jehovah during my life, I sing praise to my God while I exist. 104:34 Sweet is my meditation on Him, I--I do rejoice in Jehovah. 104:35 Consumed are sinners from the earth, And the wicked are no more. Bless, O my soul, Jehovah. Praise ye Jehovah!
