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:

coverest thyself with light stretchest out the heavens
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:

in the waters wings of the wind
4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

maketh his angels H107
5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.

foundations of the earth
6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.

with the deep
7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.

they fled
8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.

down by the valleys
9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.

may not pass over
10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.

springs into the valleys
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.

in wisdom
25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.

great and wide sea innumerable
26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.

leviathan
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.

created
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.

it trembleth
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.

wicked be no more Bless thou the LORD Praise ye the LORD
