1Bless Yahweh, my soul, Yahweh, my God, how great you are! Clothed in majesty and splendour, 2wearing the light as a robe! You stretch out the heavens like a tent, 3build your palace on the waters above, making the clouds your chariot, gliding on the wings of thewind, 4appointing the winds your messengers, flames of fire your servants. 5You fixed the earth on its foundations, for ever and ever it shal not be shaken; 6you covered it with the deep like a garment, the waters overtopping the mountains. 7At your reproof the waters fled, at the voice of your thunder they sped away, 8flowing over mountains, down val eys, to the place you had fixed for them; 9you made a limit they were not to cross, they were not to return and cover the earth. 10In the ravines you opened up springs, running down between the mountains, 11supplying water for al the wild beasts; the wild asses quench their thirst, 12on their banks the birds of the air make their nests, they sing among the leaves. 13From your high hal s you water the mountains, satisfying the earth with the fruit of your works: 14for cattle you make the grass grow, and for people the plants they need, to bring forth food from theearth, 15and wine to cheer people's hearts, oil to make their faces glow, food to make them sturdy of heart. 16The trees of Yahweh drink their fill, the cedars of Lebanon which he sowed; 17there the birds build their nests, on the highest branches the stork makes its home; 18for the wild goats there are the mountains, in the crags the coneys find refuge. 19He made the moon to mark the seasons, the sun knows when to set. 20You bring on darkness, and night fal s, when al the forest beasts roam around; 21young lions roar for their prey, asking God for their food. 22The sun rises and away they steal, back to their lairs to lie down, 23and man goes out to work, to labour til evening falls. 24How countless are your works, Yahweh, al of them made so wisely! The earth is ful of yourcreatures. 25Then there is the sea, with its vast expanses teeming with countless creatures, creatures both greatand smal ; 26there ships pass to and fro, and Leviathan whom you made to sport with. 27They al depend upon you, to feed them when they need it. 28You provide the food they gather, your open hand gives them their fil . 29Turn away your face and they panic; take back their breath and they die and revert to dust. 30Send out your breath and life begins; you renew the face of the earth. 31Glory to Yahweh for ever! May Yahweh find joy in his creatures! 32At his glance the earth trembles, at his touch the mountains pour forth smoke. 33I shal sing to Yahweh al my life, make music for my God as long as I live. 34May my musings be pleasing to him, for Yahweh gives me joy. 35May sinners vanish from the earth, and the wicked exist no more! Bless Yahweh, my soul.
