David praiseth God for his grace.
Psalms 65:1 To the end, a psalm of David. The canticle of Jeremias and Ezechiel to the people of the captivity, when they began to go out. A hymn, O God, becometh thee in Sion: and a vow shall be paid to thee in Jerusalem. Psalms 65:2 O hear my prayer: all flesh shall come to thee. Psalms 65:3 The words of the wicked have prevailed over us: and thou wilt pardon our transgressions.
The blessedness of God's chosen by reason of benefits.
Psalms 65:4 Blessed is he whom thou hast chosen and taken to thee: he shall dwell in thy courts. We shall be filled with the good things of thy house; holy is thy temple, Psalms 65:5 Wonderful in justice. Hear us, O God our saviour, who art the hope of all the ends of the earth, and in the sea afar off. Psalms 65:6 Thou who preparest the mountains by thy strength, being girded with power: Psalms 65:7 Who troublest the depth of the sea, the noise of its waves. The Gentiles shall be troubled, Psalms 65:8 And they that dwell in the uttermost borders shall be afraid at thy signs: thou shalt make the outgoings of the morning and of the evening to be joyful. Psalms 65:9 Thou hast visited the earth, and hast plentifully watered it; thou hast many ways enriched it. The river of God is filled with water, thou hast prepared their food: for so is its preparation. Psalms 65:10 Fill up plentifully the streams thereof, multiply its fruits; it shall spring up and rejoice in its showers. Psalms 65:11 Thou shalt bless the crown of the year of thy goodness: and thy fields shall be filled with plenty. Psalms 65:12 The beautiful places of the wilderness shall grow fat: and the hills shall be girded about with joy, Psalms 65:13 The rams of the flock are clothed, and the vales shall abound with corn: they shall shout, yea they shall sing a hymn.
