O Jehovah my God, you are very great.+
With majesty* and splendor you are clothed.+
3 He lays beams of his upper rooms in the waters above,*+
Making the clouds his chariot,+
Moving on the wings of the wind.+
5 He has established the earth on its foundations;+
6 You covered it with deep waters as with a garment.+
The waters stood above the mountains.
At the sound of your thunder they ran away in panic
8 —Mountains ascended+ and valleys descended—
To the place you established for them.
11 They provide water for all the wild beasts of the field;
The wild donkeys quench their thirst.
12 Above them roost the birds of the sky;
They sing among the thick foliage.
13 He is watering the mountains from his upper rooms.+
With the fruitage of your works the earth is satisfied.+
14 He is making grass grow for the cattle
And vegetation for mankind’s use,+
To grow food from the land
15 And wine that makes man’s heart rejoice,+
Oil that makes the face shine,
And bread that sustains the heart of mortal man.+
16 The trees of Jehovah are satisfied,
The cedars of Lebʹa·non that he planted,
17 Where the birds make nests.
The home of the stork+ is in the juniper trees.
22 When the sun rises,
They withdraw and lie down in their dens.
23 Man goes to his work,
And he labors until evening.
24 How many your works are, O Jehovah!+
You have made all of them in wisdom.+
The earth is full of what you have made.
28 What you give them, they gather.+
When you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.+
29 When you hide your face, they are disturbed.
If you take away their spirit, they die and return to the dust.+
31 The glory of Jehovah will last forever.
Jehovah will rejoice in his works.+
34 Let my thoughts be pleasing to him.*
I will rejoice in Jehovah.
