PSALMS - Chapter 104

1 - Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
2 - Who coverest thyself 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 for ever.
6 - Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
7 - At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
8 - They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
9 - Thou hast 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 thy 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 the LORD 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 - Thou 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.
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 LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy 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 thou hast made to play therein.
27 - These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.
28 - That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.
29 - Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.
30 - Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.
31 - The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD 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 the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
34 - My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
35 - Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
