CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle - Doth God care for oxen? Yes, and there is not a beast of the field that does not share his merciful regards.

to satisfy a desolate wasteland and make it sprout with grass?
The hills bring it their produce, and all the wild animals play nearby.
Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your justice like the great deep. You, LORD, preserve both people and animals.
