1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
2 Which couereth himselfe with light as with a garment, and spreadeth the heauens like a curtaine.
3 Which layeth the beames of his chambers in the waters, and maketh the cloudes his chariot, and walketh vpon the wings of the winde.
4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
5 He set the earth vpon her foundations, so that it shall neuer moue.
6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as [with] a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
7 But at thy rebuke they flee: at the voyce of thy thunder they haste away.
8 And the mountaines ascend, and the valleis descend to the place which thou hast established for them.
9 But thou hast set them a bounde, which they shall not passe: they shall not returne to couer the earth.
10 He sendeth the springs into the valleis, which runne betweene the mountaines.
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 oyle to make the face to shine, and bread that strengtheneth mans heart.
16 The high trees are satisfied, euen the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted,
17 That ye birdes may make their nestes there: the storke dwelleth in the firre trees.
18 The high mountaines are for the goates: the rockes are a refuge for the conies.
19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
20 Thou makest darkenesse, and it is night, wherein all the beastes of the forest creepe forth.
21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.
22 When the sunne riseth, they retire, and couche in their dennes.
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 sea great and wide: for therein are things creeping innumerable, both small beastes and great.
26 There goe the shippes, yea, that Liuiathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.
27 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give [them] their meat in due season.
28 Thou giuest it to them, and they gather it: thou openest thine hand, and they are filled with good things.
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 Glory be to the Lord for euer: let the Lord reioyce in his workes.
32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.
33 I will sing vnto the Lord all my life: I will prayse my God, while I liue.
34 Let my wordes be acceptable vnto him: I will reioyce 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.
