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 winds his messengers; his ministers a flaming fire:
5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be moved for ever.
6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a vesture; the waters stood above the mountains.
7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away;
8 They went up by the mountains, they went down by the valleys, unto the place which thou hadst 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 forth springs into the valleys; they run among the mountains:
11 They give drink to every beast of the field; the wild asses quench their thirst.
12 By them the fowl of the heaven have their habitation, they sing among the branches.
13 He watereth the mountains 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 that strengtheneth man’s heart.
16 The trees of the LORD are satisfied; 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 mountains are for the wild goats; the rocks are a refuge 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 get them away, 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 Yonder is the sea, great and wide, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
26 There go the ships; there is leviathan, whom thou hast formed to take his pastime therein.
27 These wait all upon thee, that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.
28 That thou givest unto them they gather; thou openest thine hand, they are satisfied 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 ground.
31 Let the glory of the LORD endure for ever; let the LORD rejoice in his works:
32 Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; he toucheth the mountains, 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 any being.
34 Let my meditation be sweet unto him: I will rejoice in the LORD.
35 Let sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
