1 To the overseer; chanting to David a song. Praise being silent to thee, O God in Zion: and to thee shall the vow be repaid. 2 Hear thou prayer: even to thee shall all flesh come. 3 The words of iniquities were strong above me: our transgressions thou wilt cover them. 4 Happy him thou wilt choose, and thou wilt draw near; he shall dwell in thy enclosures: we shall be satisfied in the good of thy house; holy is thy temple.
5 Wonderful things in justice thou wilt answer us, O God saving us, the trust of all the ends of the earth, and those being far off upon the sea: 6 Preparing the mountains in his strength; being girded with might: 7 Restraining the tumult of the seas, the tumult of their waves, and the multitude of the nations. 8 And they shall be afraid, those dwelling in the ends, from thy signs: the goings forth of the morning and evening thou wilt cause to rejoice.
9 Thou reviewedst the earth, and thou wilt water it: thou wilt greatly enrich it; the stream of God being full of waters: thou wilt prepare their grain, for so thou wilt prepare it. 10 Thou givest its furrows to drink to the full: thou wilt cause its incisions to flow down in showers: thou wilt bless its springing up. 11 Thou crownest the year of thy goodness, and thy tracks shall drop fatness. 12 The pastures of the desert shall drop, and the hills shall be girded with joy. 13 The lambs of the sheep were clothed, and the valleys shall be covered with corn; they shall shout for joy, they shall also sing.
