Ain The eyes of all wait upon thee, and thou givest them their food in due season.
And to every beast of the earth and to every fowl of the air and to every thing that moves upon the earth, in which there is a living soul, I have given all green grass for food; and it was so.
Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion or fill the appetite of the young lions,
Who covers the heavens with clouds, who prepares the rain for the earth, who makes grass to grow upon the mountains.
Be not afraid, ye animals of the field; for the pastures of the wilderness shall become green again, for the trees shall bear their fruit, the fig tree and the vine shall give their fruits.
Behold the fowls of the air, for they sow not, neither do they reap nor gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are ye not much better than they?
Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?
