The Book of Psalms


Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
    2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a tent:
    3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
    4 Who maketh the winds his messengers; his ministers a flaming fire:
    5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.
    6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
    7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the sound of thy thunder they hasted away.
    8 The mountains rose, the valleys sank down unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
    9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
    10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.
    11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.
    12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.
    13 He watereth the mountains from his upper chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
    14 He 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;
    15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.
    16 The trees of the LORD are watered abundantly, the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;
    17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
    18 The high mountains are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the coneys.
    19 He made the moon for the seasons: the sun knoweth its time for going down.
    20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.
    21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.
    22 When the sun ariseth, they withdraw, and lay them down in their dens.
    23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
    24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy creatures.
    25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are swarms of things innumerable, both small and great beasts.
    26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.
    27 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.
    28 When thou givest it to them, they gather it up: when thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good things.
    29 When thou hidest thy face, they are dismayed: when thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.
    30 When thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.
    31 May the glory of the LORD endure for ever: may the LORD rejoice in his works.
    32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the mountains, and they smoke.
    33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
    34 Let my meditation be pleasing unto him: I will be glad in the LORD.
    35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
