1 Praise the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art become exceedingly glorious; thou art clothed with majesty and honour. 2 Thou deckest thyself with light, as it were with a garment, and spreadest out the heaven like a curtain - 3 who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters, and maketh the clouds thy chariot, and walketh upon the wings of the wind. 4 Thou makest thine angels spirits, and thy ministers a flaming fire.
5 Thou hast laid the foundations of the earth, that it never should move at any time. 6 Thou coveredst it with the deep like as with a garment, so that the waters stand above the hills. 7 But at thy rebuke they flee, at the voice of thy thunder they are afraid. 8 Then are the hills seen aloft, and the valleys beneath - in their place which thou hast appointed for them. 9 Thou hast set them their bounds, which they may not pass, that they turn not again to cover the earth.
10 Thou causest the wells to spring up among the valleys, and the waters to run among the hills, 11 that all the beasts of the field may have drink, and that the wild asses may quench their thirst. 12 Beside them shall the fowls of the air have their habitation, and sing among the branches. 13 Thou waterest the hills from above; the earth is filled with the fruits of thy works.
14 Thou bringest forth grass for the cattle, and green herbs for the service of men. 15 Thou bringest food out of the earth: wine to make glad the heart of man, oil to make him a cheerful countenance and bread to strengthen man's heart.
16 The trees of the LORD also are full of sap, even the cedars of Lebanon which he hath planted, 17 wherein the birds make their nests; and the fir trees are a dwelling for the stork. 18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats, and so are the stony rocks for the conies.
19 Thou hast appointed the moon for certain seasons, the sun knoweth his going down. 20 Thou makest darkness, that it may be night, wherein all the beasts of the forest do move. 21 The lions, roaring after their prey, do seek their meat from God. 22 But when the sun ariseth, they get them away together, and lie them down in their dens. 23 Then goeth forth man to his work, and to till his land until the evening.
24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! Right wisely hast thou made them all; yea, the earth is full of thy riches. 25 So is this great and wide sea also, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts. 26 There go the ships over, and there is that Leviathan, whom thou hast made, to take his pastime therein.
27 These wait all upon thee, that thou mayest give them meat in due season. 28 When thou givest it them, they gather it; when thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good. 29 But when thou hidest thy face, they are troubled; when thou takest away their breath, they die, and are turned again to their dust. 30 When thou lettest thy breath go forth, they shall be made; and thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
31 The glorious majesty of the LORD shall endure forever, and the LORD rejoiceth in his works. 32 The earth trembleth at the look of him; he doth but touch the hills and they smoke. 33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live; I will praise my God while I have my being. 34 O that my words might please him, for my joy is in the LORD. 35 As for the sinners, they shall be consumed out of the earth, and the ungodly shall come to an end. But praise thou the LORD, O my soul: Praise the everlasting! Hallelujah!
