Psalm 65

Praise to God for His Salvation and Providence

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. A Song.

1 Praise is awaiting You, O God, in Zion;

And to You the 1vow shall be performed.

2 O You who hear prayer,

aTo You all flesh will come.

3 Iniquities prevail against me;

As for our transgressions,

You will bprovide atonement for them.

4 cBlessed is the man You dchoose,

And cause to approach You,

That he may dwell in Your courts.

eWe shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house,

Of Your holy temple.

5 By awesome deeds in righteousness You will answer us,

O God of our salvation,

You who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth,

And of the far-off seas;

6 Who established the mountains by His strength,

fBeing clothed with power;

7 gYou who still the noise of the seas,

The noise of their waves,

hAnd the tumult of the peoples.

8 They also who dwell in the farthest parts are afraid of Your signs;

You make the outgoings of the morning and evening 2rejoice.

9 You 3visit the earth and iwater it,

You greatly enrich it;

jThe river of God is full of water;

You provide their grain,

For so You have prepared 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 drip with abundance.

12 They drop on the pastures of the wilderness,

And the little hills rejoice on every side.

13 The pastures are clothed with flocks;

kThe valleys also are covered with grain;

They shout for joy, they also sing.


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
