Psalm 104
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

How Many Are Your Works, O LORD!

1(103:1) A Psalm of David. Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou hast clothed thyself with praise and honour:

2(103:2) who dost robe thyself with light as with a garment; spreading out the heaven as a curtain.

3(103:3) Who covers his chambers with waters; who makes the clouds his chariot; who walks on the wings of the wind.

4(103:4) Who makes his angels spirits, and his ministers a flaming fire.

5(103:5) Who establishes the earth on her sure foundation: it shall not be moved for ever.

6(103:6) The deep, as it were a garment, is his covering: the waters shall stand on the hills.

7(103:7) At thy rebuke they shall flee; at the voice of thy thunder they shall be alarmed.

8(103:8) They go up to the mountains, and down to the plains, to the place which thou hast founded for them.

9(103:9) Thou hast set a bound which they shall not pass, neither shall they turn again to cover the earth.

10(103:10) He sends forth his fountains among the valleys: the waters shall run between the mountains.

11(103:11) They shall give drink to all the wild beasts of the field: the wild asses shall take of them to quench their thirst.

12(103:12) By them shall the birds of the sky lodge: they shall utter a voice out of the midst of the rocks.

13(103:13) He waters the mountains from his chambers: the earth shall be satisfied with the fruit of thy works.

14(103:14) He makes grass to grow for the cattle, and green herb for the service of men, to bring bread out of the earth;

15(103:15) and wine makes glad the heart of man, to make his face cheerful with oil: and bread strengthens man's heart.

16(103:16) The trees of the plain shall be full of sap; even the cedars of Libanus which he has planted.

17(103:17) There the sparrows will build their nests; and the house of the heron takes the lead among them.

18(103:18) The high mountains are a refuge for the stags, and the rock for the rabbits.

19(103:19) He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knows his going down.

20(103:20) Thou didst make darkness, and it was night; in it all the wild beasts of the forest will be abroad:

21(103:21) even young lions roaring for prey, and to seek meat for themselves from God.

22(103:22) The sun arises, and they shall be gathered together, and shall lie down in their dens.

23(103:23) Man shall go forth to his work, and to his labour till evening.

24(103:24) How great are thy works, O Lord! in wisdom hast thou wrought them all: the earth is filled with thy creation.

25(103:25) So is this great and wide sea: there are things creeping innumerable, small animals and great.

26(103:26) There go the ships; and this dragon whom thou hast made to play in it.

27(103:27) All wait upon thee, to give them their food in due season.

28(103:28) When thou hast given it them, they will gather it; and when thou hast opened thine hand, they shall all be filled with good.

29(103:29) But when thou hast turned away thy face, they shall be troubled: thou wilt take away their breath, and they shall fail, and return to their dust.

30(103:30) Thou shalt send forth thy Spirit, and they shall be created; and thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

31(103:31) Let the glory of the Lord be for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works;

32(103:32) who looks upon the earth, and makes it tremble; who touches the mountains, and they smoke.

33(103:33) I will sing to the Lord while I live; I will sing praise to my God while I exist.

34(103:34) Let my meditation be sweet to him: and I will rejoice in the Lord.

35(103:35) Let the sinners fail from off the earth, and transgressors, so that they shall be no more. Bless the Lord, O my soul.
