Bless Jehovah, O my soul. O Jehovah my God, thou art very great; Thou art clothed with honor and majesty:
Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment; Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain;
Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters; Who maketh the clouds his chariot; Who walketh upon the wings of the wind;
Who maketh winds his messengers; Flames of fire his ministers;
Who laid the foundations of the earth, That it should not be moved for ever.
Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a vesture; The waters stood above the mountains.
At thy rebuke they fled; At the voice of thy thunder they hasted away
(The mountains rose, the valleys sank down) Unto the place which thou hadst founded for them.
Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; That they turn not again to cover the earth.
He sendeth forth springs into the valleys; They run among the mountains;
They give drink to every beast of the field; The wild asses quench their thirst.
By them the birds of the heavens have their habitation; They sing among the branches.
He watereth the mountains from his chambers: The earth is filled with the fruit of thy works.
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,
And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, (And) oil to make his face to shine, And bread that strengtheneth man's heart.
