Psalm 104

God the Creator and Provider


1 Bless the Lord, O my soul.
   O Lord my God, you are very great.
You are clothed with honour and majesty,
2   wrapped in light as with a garment.
You stretch out the heavens like a tent,
3   you set the beams of your* chambers on the waters,
you make the clouds your* chariot,
   you ride on the wings of the wind,
4 you make the winds your* messengers,
   fire and flame your* ministers.


5 You set the earth on its foundations,
   so that it shall never be shaken.
6 You cover it with the deep as with a garment;
   the waters stood above the mountains.
7 At your rebuke they flee;
   at the sound of your thunder they take to flight.
8 They rose up to the mountains, ran down to the valleys
   to the place that you appointed for them.
9 You set a boundary that they may not pass,
   so that they might not again cover the earth.


10 You make springs gush forth in the valleys;
   they flow between the hills,
11 giving drink to every wild animal;
   the wild asses quench their thirst.
12 By the streams* the birds of the air have their habitation;
   they sing among the branches.
13 From your lofty abode you water the mountains;
   the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work.
