American Standard Version
Psalms, Chapter 104

   1: Bless Jehovah, O my soul. O Jehovah my God, thou art very great; Thou art clothed with honor and majesty:
   2: Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment; Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain;
   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 winds his messengers; Flames of fire his ministers;
   5: Who laid the foundations of the earth, That it should not be moved for ever.
   6: Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a vesture; The waters stood above the mountains.
   7: At thy rebuke they fled; At the voice of thy thunder they hasted away
   8: (The mountains rose, the valleys sank down) Unto the place which thou hadst 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 forth springs into the valleys; They run among the mountains;
   11: They give drink to every beast of the field; The wild asses quench their thirst.
   12: By them the birds of the heavens have their habitation; They sing among the branches.
   13: He watereth the mountains from his chambers: The earth is filled 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 that strengtheneth man's heart.
   16: The trees of Jehovah are filled [with moisture], 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 for the wild goats; The rocks are a refuge for the conies.
   19: He appointed the moon for seasons: The sun knoweth his going down.
   20: Thou makest darkness, and it is night, Wherein all the beasts of the forest creep forth.
   21: The young lions roar after their prey, And seek their food from God.
   22: The sun ariseth, they get them away, And lay them down in their dens.
   23: Man goeth forth unto his work And to his labor until the evening.
   24: O Jehovah, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all: The earth is full of thy riches.
   25: Yonder is the sea, great and wide, Wherein are things creeping innumerable, Both small and great beasts.
   26: There go the ships; There is leviathan, whom thou hast formed to play therein.
   27: These wait all for thee, That thou mayest give them their food in due season.
   28: Thou givest unto them, they gather; Thou openest thy hand, they are satisfied with good.
   29: Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled; Thou takest away their breath, they die, And return to their dust.
   30: Thou sendest forth thy Spirit, they are created; And thou renewest the face of the ground.
   31: Let the glory of Jehovah endure for ever; Let Jehovah rejoice in his works:
   32: Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He toucheth the mountains, and they smoke.
   33: I will sing unto Jehovah as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have any being.
   34: Let thy meditation be sweet unto him: I will rejoice in Jehovah.
   35: Let sinners be consumed out of the earth. And let the wicked be no more. Bless Jehovah, O my soul. Praise ye Jehovah.
