You have not started any reading plans.
104 My whole being, praise the Lord.
Lord my God, you are very great.
You are clothed with glory and majesty;
You stretch out the skies like a tent.
You make the clouds your chariot,
and you ride on the wings of the wind.
and flames of fire are your servants.
so it can never be moved.
the water was above the mountains.
When you thundered your orders, it hurried away.
The water went to the places you made for it.
so water will never cover the earth again.
they flow between the mountains.
the wild donkeys come there to drink.
they sing among the tree branches.
The earth is full of the things you made.
and vegetables for the people.
You make food grow from the earth.
and olive oil that makes our faces shine.
You give us bread that gives us strength.
they are the cedars of Lebanon, which he planted.
the stork’s home is in the fir trees.
The rocks are hiding places for the badgers.
and the sun always knows when to set.
Then all the wild animals creep around.
They look to God for food.
and go back to their dens to lie down.
and work until evening.
with your wisdom you made them all.
The earth is full of your riches.
with creatures large and small that cannot be counted.
and there is the sea monster Leviathan,
which you made to play there.
to give them their food at the right time.
they gather it up.
When you open your hand,
they are filled with good food.
they become frightened.
When you take away their breath,
they die and turn to dust.
they are created,
and you make the land new again.
May the Lord enjoy what he has made.
He touches the mountains, and they smoke.
I will sing praises to my God as long as I live.
I am happy in the Lord.
and let the wicked live no longer.
My whole being, praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.
