A meditation upon the mighty power,
Psalms 104:1 Bless the LORD O my soul, O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Psalms 104:2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment; who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain: Psalms 104:3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters; who maketh the clouds his chariot; who walketh upon the wings of the wind: Psalms 104:4 Who maketh winds his messengers; his ministers a flaming fire: Psalms 104:5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be moved for ever. Psalms 104:6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a vesture; the waters stood above the mountains.
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 went up by the mountains, they went down by the valleys, unto the place which thou hadst founded for them. Psalms 104:9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth. Psalms 104:10 He sendeth forth springs into the valleys; they run among the mountains: Psalms 104:11 They give drink to every beast of the field; the wild asses quench their thirst. Psalms 104:12 By them the fowl of the heaven have their habitation, they sing among the branches. Psalms 104:13 He watereth the mountains from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works. Psalms 104:14 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: Psalms 104:15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, [and] oil to make his face to shine, and bread that strengtheneth man's heart. Psalms 104:16 The trees of the LORD are satisfied; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted; Psalms 104:17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house. Psalms 104:18 The high mountains are for the wild goats; the rocks are a refuge for the conies. Psalms 104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down. Psalms 104:20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night; Wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth. Psalms 104:21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God. Psalms 104:22 The sun ariseth, they get them away, and lay them down in their dens. Psalms 104:23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening. Psalms 104:24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. Psalms 104:25 Yonder is the sea, great and wide, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts. Psalms 104:26 There go the ships; there is leviathan, whom thou hast formed to take his pastime therein. Psalms 104:27 These wait all upon thee, that thou mayest give them their meat in due season. Psalms 104:28 That thou givest unto them they gather; thou openest thine hand, they are satisfied with good. Psalms 104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled; thou takest away their breath they die, and return to their dust. Psalms 104:30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created; and thou renewest the face of the ground.
God's glory is eternal.
Psalms 104:31 Let the glory of the LORD endure for ever; let the LORD rejoice in his works: Psalms 104:32 Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; he toucheth the mountains, and they smoke.
The prophet voweth perpetually to praise God.
Psalms 104:33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have any being. Psalms 104:34 Let my meditation be sweet unto him: I will rejoice in the LORD. Psalms 104:35 Let sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
