1Bless Yahweh, O my soul! O Yahweh my God, you are very great. You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
2covering yourself with light like a cloak, stretching out the heavens like a tent;
3who lays the beams of his upper chambers on the waters; who makes the dark clouds his chariot; who travels on the wings of the wind;
4who makes the winds his messengers, flaming fires his ministers.
5He established the earth upon its foundations, it will not be shaken forever.
6You covered it with the deep like a garment. The waters stood above the mountains.
7At your rebuke they fled, at the sound of your thunder they hurried away.
8The mountains rose, the valleys sank down to the place that you established for them.
9You have set a boundary that they may not pass over; they will not return to cover the earth.
10He sends forth springs into the valleys; they flow between the mountains;
11they give drink to every animal of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst.
12The birds of the heavens dwell above them. They lift their voices among the branches.
13He waters the mountains from his upper chambers. The earth is satisfied with the fruit of your works.
14He causes the grass to grow for the cattle and plants for man to tend, so that he may bring forth food from the earth;
15wine that makes glad the heart of man, oil to make his face to shine, and food that strengthens the heart of man.
16The trees of Yahweh are satisfied, the cedars of Lebanon that he has planted,
17where the birds nest, even the stork whose home is in the firs.
18The high mountains are for the wild goats; the cliffs are a refuge for the rock badgers.
19He made the moon for seasons; the sun knows the place of its setting.
20You make darkness and it becomes night, when all the forest animals prowl.
21The young lions roar after their prey and seek their food from God.
22The sun rises and they withdraw and lie down in their dens.
23Man goes forth to his work and to his labor until the evening.
24O Yahweh, how many are your works! By wisdom have you made them all; the earth is full of your possessions.
25There is the sea, great and spread out, in which are innumerable swarms, both small and large animals.
26There the ships sail, and Leviathan, which you created in order to play with him.
27These all look to you to give them their food in due season.
28You give it to them, they gather it up; you open your hand, they are satisfied with good.
29You hide your face, they are terrified; you take away their breath: they die and they return to the dust.
30You send forth your spirit: they are created; and you renew the face of the ground.
31May the glory of Yahweh endure forever; may Yahweh rejoice in his works!
32He looks at the earth and it trembles. He touches the mountains and they smoke.
33I will sing to Yahweh as long as I live. I will make music to my God while I have any being.
34May my meditation be pleasing to him. I will rejoice in Yahweh.
35May sinners perish from the earth and may the wicked be no more. Bless Yahweh, O my soul. Praise Yah!
