Psalm 104
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

How Many Are Your Works, O LORD!

1Praise Jehovah, O my soul. O Jehovah my God thou wert great exceedingly; thou didst put on strength and honor:

2Being covered with light as a garment: stretching forth the heavens as a curtain:

3Framing his upper chambers in the waters: setting the clouds his chariot: going upon the wings of the wind.

4Making his messengers spirits; his servants a fire of flame:

5Founding the earth upon her bases, she shall not be moved forever and even.

6The deep thou coveredst it as a garment: the waters will stand upon the mountains.

7From thy rebuke they shall flee; from the voice of thy thunder they shall be terrified.

8They shall go up the mountains; they shall go down into the valleys to the place: this thou didst found for them.

9Thou didst set a bound they shall not pass over; they shall not turn bark to cover the earth.

10Sending forth fountains into the valleys, they will go between the mountains.

11They shall water all the beasts of the field: the wild asses shall break their thirst.

12Upon them the birds of the heavens shall dwell, from between their boughs they shall give a voice.

13Watering the mountains from his upper chambers: with the fruit of thy work shall the earth be filled.

14Causing grass to spring up for the cattle, and the green herb for the service of man, to bring forth bread from the earth:

15And wine will gladden the heart of man, to cause the face to shine from oil, and bread will support the heart of man.

16And the trees of Jehovah shall be satisfied; the cedars of Lebanon which he planted;

17Where there the sparrows will nest: the stork, the cypresses her house.

18The high mountains for the wild goats; the rocks a refuge for the conies.

19He made the moon for the appointments: the sun knew his going down.

20Thou didst set darkness and it will be night: in it all the beasts of the forest shall creep.

21The young lions roaring for prey, and to seek from God their food.

22The sun shall rise, they will be gathered together, and in their dens they will lie down.

23Man will go forth to his work, and to his labor even to evening.

24How thy works were multiplied. O Jehovah! in wisdom thou madest them all: the earth was filled with thy possessions.

25This great and broad sea, hands there of the creeping thing, and no number of the beasts, small with great.

26There the ships will go: the sea monster thou didst form to play in it.

27They will all wait for thee to give their food in its time.

28Thou wilt give to them, they will gather up: thou wilt open thy hand, they will be filled with good.

29Thou wilt hide thy face, they will tremble: thou wilt take away their spirit, they shall expire and turn back to dust.

30Thou wilt send forth thy spirit, they will be created: thou wilt renew the face of the earth.

31The glory of Jehovah shall be forever: Jehovah, shall rejoice in his works.

32Looking upon the earth and it will tremble: he will touch up the mountains and they will smoke.

33I will sing to Jehovah in my living: I will play on the harp to my God in my enduring.

34My meditating upon him shall be sweet: I will rejoice in Jehovah.

35Sinners shall be finished from the earth, and the unjust no more. Praise Jehovah, O my soul.
