1 Praise doth rest in thee, O God, in Sion and unto thee shall the vow be performed. 2 O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. 3 Words of iniquity overwhelmed me, but thou shalt purge away our rebellion. 4 Blessed is the man whom thou dost choose and cause to approach unto thee that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house even of thy holy temple.
5 With tremendous things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our saving health, who art the hope of all the ends of the earth and of those that are afar off upon the sea: 6 Thou art he who doth establish the mountains by thy strength, being girded with valour: 7 He who stills the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves and the tumult of the Gentiles. 8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy wonders; thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
9 Thou dost visit the earth, and when thou hast caused it to want, thou dost greatly enrich it with the river of God, which is full of water; thou dost prepare their grain, according to thy will. 10 Thou dost water its rows abundantly; thou dost settle its furrows; thou dost make it soft with showers of rain; thou dost bless its sprouting. 11 Thou dost crown the year with thy goodness, and thy clouds distill fatness. 12 They fall upon the habitations of the wilderness; and the hills gird themselves with happiness. 13 The plains clothe themselves with sheep, and the valleys cover themselves with grain; they give shouts of triumph, they even sing.
