Psalm 104:5–30

pWho laid the foundations of the earth,

That qit should not be removed for ever.

rThou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment:

The waters stood above the mountains.

sAt thy rebuke they fled;

At tthe voice of thy thunder they uhasted away.

||They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys

Unto xthe place which thou hast pfounded for them.

xThou hast set ya bound that they may not pass over;

zThat they turn not again to cover the earth.

10  He sendeth the springs into the valleys,

Which run among the hills.

11  They agive drink to every beast of the field:

The bwild asses quench their thirst.

12  By them shall cthe fowls of the heaven have their habitation,

Which sing among the branches.

13  He awatereth the hills from his ichambers:

dThe earth pis satisfied with ethe fruit of thy works.

14  fHe causeth the ggrass to grow for the cattle,

And hherb for the service of man:

That he may bring forth fifood out of the earth;

15  And kwine that lmaketh glad the heart of man,

And moil to make his face to shine,

And bread which nstrengtheneth man’s heart.

16  oThe trees of the Lord pare full of sap;

qThe cedars of Lebanon, rwhich he hath planted;

17  Where the birds make their nests:

As for the sstork, the fir trees are her house.

18  The high hills are a refuge for the twild goats;

And the rocks for the uconies.

19  He appointed the moon xfor seasons:

yThe sun knoweth his going down.

20  zThou makest darkness, and it is night:

Wherein all the beasts of the forest do icreep forth.

21  The ayoung lions roar after their aprey,

And bseek their meat from God.

22  The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together,

And lay them down in their cdens.

23  dMan goeth forth unto ehis work

And to his labour until the evening.

24  O Lord, how manifold are thy works!

fIn wisdom hast thou made them all:

The earth is full of thy griches.

25  So is this great and hwide sea,

iWherein are things creeping innumerable,

Both small and great beasts.

26  There go the ships:

There is that kleviathan, whom thou hast made to lplay therein.

27  These mwait all upon thee;

That thou mayest mngive them their meat in due season.

28  That thou givest them they gather:

nnThou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.

29  oThou hidest thy face, they are troubled:

pThou takest away their breath, they die,

And pqreturn to their dust.

30  Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created:

And thou renewest the face of the earth.
