1 My soul, praise * Yahweh!
Lord my God, You are very great;
You are clothed with majesty and splendor. y
spreading out the sky like a canopy, z
on the waters above, a
making the clouds His chariot, b
walking on the wings of the wind, c
4 and making the winds His messengers, d
flames of fire His servants. e
it will never be shaken. f
as if it were a garment;
the waters stood above the mountains. g
at the sound of Your thunder they hurried away h—
8 mountains rose and valleys sank i—
to the place You established for them. j
they will never cover the earth again. k
they flow between the mountains. l
the wild donkeys quench their thirst. m
they sing among the foliage. n
the earth is satisfied by the fruit of Your labor. o
and provides crops for man to cultivate,
producing food from the earth, p
making his face shine with oil—
and bread that sustains man’s heart. q
16 The trees of the Lord flourish, r
the cedars of Lebanon that He planted. s
the stork makes its home in the pine trees. t
the cliffs are a refuge for hyraxes. u
the sun knows when to set. x
when all the forest animals stir. y
and seek their food from God. z
and lie down in their dens. a
and to his labor until evening. b
In wisdom You have made them all;
teeming with creatures beyond number—
living things both large and small. e
to give them their food at the right time. g
they gather it;
when You open Your hand,
they are satisfied with good things. h
they are terrified;
when You take away their breath,
they die and return to the dust. i
30 When You send Your breath, j
they are created,
and You renew the face of the earth. k
may the Lord rejoice in His works. l
He touches the mountains,
and they pour out smoke. m
I will sing praise to my God while I live. n
I will rejoice in the Lord. o
and wicked people be no more. p
My soul, praise Yahweh!
