Psalm One-Hundred and Three LXX (Ps. 104, Masoretic)
King James Version.
- Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great;
thou art clothed with honour 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 his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
- Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be
removed for ever.
- Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters
stood above the mountains.
- At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted
- They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the
place which thou hast 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 the springs into the valleys, which run among the
- They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses
quench their thirst.
- By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation,
which sing among the branches.
- He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied
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 which strengtheneth man's heart.
- The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon,
which he hath planted;
- Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir
trees are her house.
- The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks
for the conies.
- He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going
- Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of
the forest do creep forth.
- The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from
- The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them
down in their dens.
- Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the
- O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made
them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
- So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping
innumerable, both small and great beasts.
- There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made
to play therein.
- These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat
in due season.
- That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they
are filled with good.
- Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their
breath, they die, and return to their dust.
- Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou
renewest the face of the earth.
- The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall
rejoice in his works.
- He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the
hills, and they smoke.
- I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise
to my God while I have my being.
- My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
- Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked
be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
