1 [To the Chief Musician. A Psalm and Song of David.] Praise waits for you, O God, in Zion: and unto you shall the vow be performed. 2 O you that hears prayer, unto you shall all flesh come. 3 Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, you shall purge them away. 4 Blessed is the man whom you choose, and cause to approach unto you, that he may dwell in your courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, even of your holy temple.
5 By awesome deeds in righteousness will you answer us, O God of our salvation; who is the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea: 6 Who by his strength established the mountains; being girded with power: 7 Who stills the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people. 8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at your signs: you make the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
9 You visit the earth, and water it: you greatly enrich it with the river of God, which is full of water: you prepare them grain, when you have so provided for it. 10 You water its ridges abundantly: you settle its furrows: you make it soft with showers: you bless its growth. 11 You crown the year with your goodness; and your paths drop fatness. 12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side. 13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with grain; they shout for joy, they also sing.
