LORD my God, You are very great;

Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain.

So that it will not [fn]totter forever and ever.

So that they will not return to cover the earth.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 104:10 - [fn]He sends forth springs in the valleys;
They flow between the mountains;
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 104:11 - They give drink to every animal of the field;
The wild donkeys quench their thirst.

They [fn]lift up their voices from among the branches.

The earth is satisfied with the fruit of His works.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 104:14 - [fn]He causes the grass to grow for the [fn]cattle,
And vegetation for the labor of mankind,
So that [fn]they may produce [fn]food from the earth,

So that he makes his face gleam with oil,
And [fn]food, which sustains a human heart.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 104:16 - The trees of the LORD [fn]drink their fill,
The cedars of Lebanon which He planted,
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 104:17 - Where the birds build their nests,
And the stork, whose home is the juniper trees.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 104:18 - The high mountains are for the wild goats;
The cliffs are a refuge for the rock hyrax.

The sun knows the place of its setting.

In which all the animals of the forest [fn]prowl about.

And they lie down in their dens.

And to his labor until evening.

[fn]In wisdom You have made them all;
The earth is full of Your [fn]possessions.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 104:25 - [fn]There is the sea, great and [fn]broad,
In which are swarms without number,
Animals both small and great.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 104:26 - The ships move along there,
And [fn]Leviathan, which You have formed to have fun in it.

To give them their food in [fn]due season.

You take away their breath, they perish
And return to their dust.

And You renew the face of the ground.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 104:31 - May the glory of the LORD endure forever;
May the LORD rejoice in His works;

He touches the mountains, and they smoke.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 104:33 - [fn]I will sing to the LORD [fn]as long as I live;
[fn]I will sing praise to my God [fn]while I have my being.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 104:35 - May sinners be removed from the earth
And may the wicked be no more.
Bless the LORD, my soul.
[fn]Praise [fn]the LORD!
