|<< Psalm 104 >>|
Darby Bible Translation
O Lord, My God, You are Very Great
1Bless Jehovah, O my soul! Jehovah my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with majesty and splendour;
2Covering thyself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent-curtain; —
3Who layeth the beams of his upper chambers in the waters, who maketh clouds his chariot, who walketh upon the wings of the wind;
4Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flame of fire.
5He laid the earth upon its foundations: it shall not be removed for ever.
6Thou hadst covered it with the deep, as with a vesture; the waters stood above the mountains:
7At thy rebuke they fled, at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away; —
8The mountains rose, the valleys sank, unto the place which thou hadst founded for them; —
9Thou hast set a bound which they may not pass over, that they turn not again to cover the earth.
10He sendeth the springs into the valleys: they run among the mountains;
11They give drink to every beast of the field; the wild asses quench their thirst.
12The birds of heaven dwell by them; they give forth their voice from among the branches.
13He watereth the mountains from his upper-chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
14He maketh the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man; bringing forth bread out of the earth,
15And wine which gladdeneth the heart of man; making his face shine with oil; and with bread he strengtheneth man's heart.
16The trees of Jehovah are satisfied, the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted,
17Where the birds make their nests; as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
18The high mountains are for the wild goats; the cliffs, a refuge for the rock-badgers.
19He made the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth its going down.
20Thou makest darkness, and it is night, wherein all the beasts of the forest creep forth:
21The young lions roar after the prey, and to seek their food from �God.
22The sun ariseth, they retreat, and lay them down in their dens.
23Man goeth forth unto his work, and to his labour until the evening.
24How manifold are thy works, O Jehovah! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
25Yonder is the great and wide sea: therein are moving things innumerable, living creatures small and great.
26There go the ships; there that leviathan, which thou hast formed to play therein.
27These all look unto thee, that thou mayest give their food in its season:
28That thou givest unto them, they gather; thou openest thy hand, they are filled with good.
29Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled; thou takest away their breath, they expire and return to their dust.
30Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created, and thou renewest the face of the earth.
31The glory of Jehovah will endure for ever; Jehovah will rejoice in his works.
32He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; he toucheth the mountains, and they smoke.
33I will sing unto Jehovah as long as I live; I will sing psalms to my God while I have my being.
34My meditation shall be pleasant unto him; I will rejoice in Jehovah.
35Sinners shall be consumed out of the earth, and the wicked shall be no more. Bless Jehovah, O my soul. Hallelujah!
