A meditation upon the mighty power,
Psalms 104:1 Blesse the LORD, O my soule, O LORD my God, thou art very great: thou art clothed with honour and maiestie. Psalms 104:2 Who couerest [thy selfe] with light, as [with] a garment: who stretchest out the heauens like a curtaine. Psalms 104:3 Who layeth the beames of his chambers in the waters, who maketh the cloudes his charet: who walketh vpon the wings of the wind. Psalms 104:4 Who maketh his Angels spirits: his ministers a flaming fire. Psalms 104:5 Who laid the foundations of the earth: [that] it should not be remoued for euer. Psalms 104:6 Thou coueredst it with the deepe as [with] a garment: the waters stood aboue the mountaines.
and wonderful providence of God.
Psalms 104:7 At thy rebuke they fled: at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away. Psalms 104:8 They go vp by the mountaines: they goe downe by the valleys vnto the place which thou hast founded for them. Psalms 104:9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not passe ouer: that they turne not againe to couer the earth. Psalms 104:10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys: [which] runne among the hilles. Psalms 104:11 They giue drinke to euery beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst. Psalms 104:12 By them shall the foules of the heauen haue their habitation: [which] sing among the branches. Psalms 104:13 He watereth the hilles from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy workes. Psalms 104:14 He causeth the grasse to grow for the cattell, and herbe for the seruice of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth: Psalms 104:15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oile to make [his] face to shine: and bread [which] strengtheneth mans heart. Psalms 104:16 The trees of the LORD are full [of sappe]: the cedars of Lebanon which he hath planted. Psalms 104:17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the Storke, the firre trees [are] her house. Psalms 104:18 The hie hilles [are] a refuge for the wilde goates: [and] the rockes for the conies. Psalms 104:19 He appointed the moone for seasons; the sunne knoweth his going downe. Psalms 104:20 Thou makest darknesse, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forrest doe creepe [forth]. Psalms 104:21 The young lyons roare after their pray: and seeke their meate from God. Psalms 104:22 The sunne ariseth, they gather themselues together: and lay them downe in their dennes. Psalms 104:23 Man goeth forth vnto his worke: and to his labour, vntill the euening. Psalms 104:24 O LORD, how manifold are thy workes! in wisedome hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. Psalms 104:25 [So is] this great and wide Sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable: both small and great beasts. Psalms 104:26 There goe the shippes; [there is] that Leuiathan, [whom] thou hast made to play therein. Psalms 104:27 These waite all vpon thee: that thou mayest giue them their meate in due season. Psalms 104:28 That thou giuest them, they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good. Psalms 104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled, thou takest away their breath, they die: and returne to their dust. Psalms 104:30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.
God's glory is eternal.
Psalms 104:31 The glory of the LORD shall endure for euer: the LORD shall reioyce in his workes. Psalms 104:32 Hee looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; he toucheth the hilles, and they smoke.
The prophet voweth perpetually to praise God.
Psalms 104:33 I will sing vnto the LORD as long as I liue: I will sing praise to my God, while I haue my being. Psalms 104:34 My meditation of him shalbe sweete: I will be glad in the LORD. Psalms 104:35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked bee no more: blesse thou the LORD, O my soule. Praise yee the Lord.
