Psalms 104 to 105 : American Standard Version
1Bless Jehovah, O my soul. O Jehovah my God, thou art very great; Thou art clothed with honor and majesty: 2Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment; Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain; 3Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters; Who maketh the clouds his chariot; Who walketh upon the wings of the wind; 4Who maketh winds his messengers; Flames of fire his ministers; 5Who laid the foundations of the earth, That it should not be moved for ever. 6Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a vesture; The waters stood above the mountains. 7At thy rebuke they fled; At the voice of thy thunder they hasted away 8(The mountains rose, the valleys sank down) Unto the place which thou hadst founded for them. 9Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; That they turn not again to cover the earth.
10He sendeth forth springs into the valleys; They run among the mountains; 11They give drink to every beast of the field; The wild asses quench their thirst. 12By them the birds of the heavens have their habitation; They sing among the branches. 13He watereth the mountains from his chambers: The earth is filled with the fruit of thy works. 14He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, And herb for the service of man; That he may bring forth food out of the earth, 15And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, And oil to make his face to shine, And bread that strengtheneth man's heart. 16The trees of Jehovah are filled with moisture, The cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted; 17Where the birds make their nests: As for the stork, the fir-trees are her house. 18The high mountains are for the wild goats; The rocks are a refuge for the conies. 19He appointed the moon for seasons: The sun knoweth his going down. 20Thou makest darkness, and it is night, Wherein all the beasts of the forest creep forth. 21The young lions roar after their prey, And seek their food from God. 22The sun ariseth, they get them away, And lay them down in their dens. 23Man goeth forth unto his work And to his labor until the evening.
24O Jehovah, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all: The earth is full of thy riches. 25Yonder is the sea, great and wide, Wherein are things creeping innumerable, Both small and great beasts. 26There go the ships; There is leviathan, whom thou hast formed to play therein. 27These wait all for thee, That thou mayest give them their food in due season. 28Thou givest unto them, they gather; Thou openest thy hand, they are satisfied with good. 29Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled; Thou takest away their breath, they die, And return to their dust. 30Thou sendest forth thy Spirit, they are created; And thou renewest the face of the ground.
the glory of Jehovah endure for ever; Let Jehovah rejoice in his
works: 32Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He
toucheth the mountains, and they smoke. 33I will sing
unto Jehovah as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I
have any being. 34Let thy meditation be sweet unto him:
I will rejoice in Jehovah. 35Let sinners be consumed out
of the earth. And let the wicked be no more. Bless Jehovah, O my
soul. Praise ye Jehovah.
1Oh give thanks unto Jehovah, call upon his name; Make known among the peoples his doings. 2Sing unto him, sing praises unto him; Talk ye of all his marvelous works. 3Glory ye in his holy name: Let the heart of them rejoice that seek Jehovah. 4Seek ye Jehovah and his strength; Seek his face evermore. 5Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, His wonders, and the judgments of his mouth, 6O ye seed of Abraham his servant, Ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones. 7He is Jehovah our God: His judgments are in all the earth. 8He hath remembered his covenant for ever, The word which he commanded to a thousand generations, 9The covenant which he made with Abraham, And his oath unto Isaac, 10And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a statute, To Israel for an everlasting covenant, 11Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, The lot of your inheritance; 12When they were but a few men in number, Yea, very few, and sojourners in it. 13And they went about from nation to nation, From one kingdom to another people. 14He suffered no man to do them wrong; Yea, he reproved kings for their sakes, 15Saying, Touch not mine anointed ones, And do my prophets no harm.
16And he called for a famine upon the land; He brake the whole staff of bread. 17He sent a man before them; Joseph was sold for a servant: 18His feet they hurt with fetters: He was laid in chains of iron, 19Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of Jehovah tried him. 20The king sent and loosed him; Even the ruler of peoples, and let him go free. 21He made him lord of his house, And ruler of all his substance; 22To bind his princes at his pleasure, And teach his elders wisdom. 23Israel also came into Egypt; And Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham. 24And he increased his people greatly, And made them stronger than their adversaries. 25He turned their heart to hate his people, To deal subtly with his servants. 26He sent Moses his servant, And Aaron whom he had chosen. 27They set among them his signs, And wonders in the land of Ham. 28He sent darkness, and made it dark; And they rebelled not against his words. 29He turned their waters into blood, And slew their fish. 30Their land swarmed with frogs In the chambers of their kings. 31He spake, and there came swarms of flies, And lice in all their borders. 32He gave them hail for rain, And flaming fire in their land. 33He smote their vines also and their fig-trees, And brake the trees of their borders. 34He spake, and the locust came, And the grasshopper, and that without number, 35And did eat up every herb in their land, And did eat up the fruit of their ground. 36He smote also all the first-born in their land, The chief of all their strength.
37And he brought them forth with silver and gold; And there was not one feeble person among his tribes. 38Egypt was glad when they departed; For the fear of them had fallen upon them. 39He spread a cloud for a covering, And fire to give light in the night. 40They asked, and he brought quails, And satisfied them with the bread of heaven. 41He opened the rock, and waters gushed out; They ran in the dry places like a river. 42For he remembered his holy word, And Abraham his servant. 43And he brought forth his people with joy, And his chosen with singing. 44And he gave them the lands of the nations; And they took the labor of the peoples in possession: 45That they might keep his statutes, And observe his laws. Praise ye Jehovah.
