Psalm 104 (WEBP)

[1] Bless Yahweh, my soul. Yahweh, my God, you are very great. You are clothed with honor and majesty.
[2] He covers himself with light as with a garment. He stretches out the heavens like a curtain.
[3] He lays the beams of his rooms in the waters. He makes the clouds his chariot. He walks on the wings of the wind.
[4] He makes his messengers§ winds, and his servants flames of fire.
[5] He laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be moved forever.
[6] You covered it with the deep as with a cloak. The waters stood above the mountains.
[7] At your rebuke they fled. At the voice of your thunder they hurried away.
[8] The mountains rose, the valleys sank down, to the place which you had assigned to them.
[9] You have set a boundary that they may not pass over, that they don’t turn again to cover the earth.
[10] He sends springs into the valleys. They run among the mountains.
[11] They give drink to every animal of the field. The wild donkeys quench their thirst.
[12] The birds of the sky nest by them. They sing among the branches.
[13] He waters the mountains from his rooms. The earth is filled with the fruit of your works.
[14] He causes the grass to grow for the livestock, and plants for man to cultivate, that he may produce food out of the earth:
[15] wine that makes the heart of man glad, oil to make his face to shine, and bread that strengthens man’s heart.
[16] Yahweh’s trees are well watered, the cedars of Lebanon, which he has planted,
[17] where the birds make their nests. The stork makes its home in the cypress trees.
[18] The high mountains are for the wild goats. The rocks are a refuge for the rock badgers.
[19] He appointed the moon for seasons. The sun knows when to set.
[20] You make darkness, and it is night, in which all the animals of the forest prowl.
[21] The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their food from God.
[22] The sun rises, and they steal away, and lie down in their dens.
[23] Man goes out to his work, to his labor until the evening.
[24] Yahweh, how many are your works! In wisdom, you have made them all. The earth is full of your riches.
[25] There is the sea, great and wide, in which are innumerable living things, both small and large animals.
[26] There the ships go, and leviathan, whom you formed to play there.
[27] These all wait for you, that you may give them their food in due season.
[28] You give to them; they gather. You open your hand; they are satisfied with good.
[29] You hide your face; they are troubled. You take away their breath; they die and return to the dust.
[30] You send out your Spirit and they are created. You renew the face of the ground.
[31] Let Yahweh’s glory endure forever. Let Yahweh rejoice in his works.
[32] He looks at the earth, and it trembles. He touches the mountains, and they smoke.
[33] I will sing to Yahweh as long as I live. I will sing praise to my God while I have any being.
[34] Let my meditation be sweet to him. I will rejoice in Yahweh.
[35] Let sinners be consumed out of the earth. Let the wicked be no more. Bless Yahweh, my soul. Praise Yah!

Psalm 104 (KJVS)

[1] Bless H1288 (8761) the LORD H3068, O my soul H5315. O LORD H3068 my God H430, thou art very H3966 great H1431 (8804); thou art clothed H3847 (8804) with honour H1935 and majesty H1926.
[2] Who coverest H5844 (8802) [thyself] with light H216 as [with] a garment H8008: who stretchest out H5186 (8802) the heavens H8064 like a curtain H3407:
[3] Who layeth the beams H7136 (8764) of his chambers H5944 in the waters H4325: who maketh H7760 (8802) the clouds H5645 his chariot H7398: who walketh H1980 (8764) upon the wings H3671 of the wind H7307:
[4] Who maketh H6213 (8802) his angels H4397 spirits H7307; his ministers H8334 (8764) a flaming H3857 (8802) fire H784:
[5] [Who] laid H3245 (8804) the foundations H4349 of the earth H776, [that] it should not be removed H4131 (8735) for ever H5769 H5703.
[6] Thou coveredst H3680 (8765) it with the deep H8415 as [with] a garment H3830: the waters H4325 stood H5975 (8799) above the mountains H2022.
[7] At H4480 thy rebuke H1606 they fled H5127 (8799); at the voice H6963 of thy thunder H7482 they hasted H2648 (8735) away.
[8] They go up H5927 (8799) by the mountains H2022; they go down H3381 (8799) by the valleys H1237 unto the place H4725 which H2088 thou hast founded H3245 (8804) for them.
[9] Thou hast set H7760 (8804) a bound H1366 that they may not pass over H5674 (8799); that they turn not again H7725 (8799) to cover H3680 (8763) the earth H776.
[10] He sendeth H7971 (8764) the springs H4599 into the valleys H5158, [which] run H1980 (8762) among the hills H2022.
[11] They give drink H8248 (8686) to every beast H2416 of the field H7704: the wild asses H6501 quench H7665 (8799) their thirst H6772.
[12] By them shall the fowls H5775 of the heaven H8064 have their habitation H7931 (8799), [which] sing H5414 (8799) H6963 among H996 the branches H6073.
[13] He watereth H8248 (8688) the hills H2022 from his chambers H5944: the earth H776 is satisfied H7646 (8799) with the fruit H6529 of thy works H4639.
[14] He causeth the grass H2682 to grow H6779 (8688) for the cattle H929, and herb H6212 for the service H5656 of man H120: that he may bring forth H3318 (8687) food H3899 out of the earth H776;
[15] And wine H3196 [that] maketh glad H8055 (8762) the heart H3824 of man H582, [and] oil H8081 to make [his] face H6440 to shine H6670 (8687), and bread H3899 [which] strengtheneth H5582 (8799) man’s H582 heart H3824.
[16] The trees H6086 of the LORD H3068 are full H7646 (8799) [of sap]; the cedars H730 of Lebanon H3844, which he hath planted H5193 (8804);
[17] Where the birds H6833 make their nests H7077 (8762): [as for] the stork H2624, the fir trees H1265 [are] her house H1004.
[18] The high H1364 hills H2022 [are] a refuge H4268 for the wild goats H3277; [and] the rocks H5553 for the conies H8227.
[19] He appointed H6213 (8804) the moon H3394 for seasons H4150: the sun H8121 knoweth H3045 (8804) his going down H3996.
[20] Thou makest H7896 (8799) darkness H2822, and it is night H3915: wherein all the beasts H2416 of the forest H3293 do creep H7430 (8799) [forth].
[21] The young lions H3715 roar H7580 (8802) after their prey H2964, and seek H1245 (8763) their meat H400 from God H410.
[22] The sun H8121 ariseth H2224 (8799), they gather themselves together H622 (8735), and lay them down H7257 (8799) in their dens H4585.
[23] Man H120 goeth forth H3318 (8799) unto his work H6467 and to his labour H5656 until the evening H6153.
[24] O LORD H3068, how manifold H7231 (8804) are thy works H4639! in wisdom H2451 hast thou made H6213 (8804) them all: the earth H776 is full H4390 (8804) of thy riches H7075.
[25] [So is] this great H1419 and wide H7342 H3027 sea H3220, wherein [are] things creeping H7431 innumerable H4557, both small H6996 and great H1419 beasts H2416.
[26] There go H1980 (8762) the ships H591: [there is] that leviathan H3882, [whom] thou hast made H3335 (8804) to play H7832 (8763) therein.
[27] These wait H7663 (8762) all upon thee; that thou mayest give H5414 (8800) [them] their meat H400 in due season H6256.
[28] [That] thou givest H5414 (8799) them they gather H3950 (8799): thou openest H6605 (8799) thine hand H3027, they are filled H7646 (8799) with good H2896.
[29] Thou hidest H5641 (8686) thy face H6440, they are troubled H926 (8735): thou takest away H622 (8799) their breath H7307, they die H1478 (8799), and return H7725 (8799) to their dust H6083.
[30] Thou sendest H7971 (8762) forth thy spirit H7307, they are created H1254 (8735): and thou renewest H2318 (8762) the face H6440 of the earth H127.
[31] The glory H3519 of the LORD H3068 shall endure for ever H5769: the LORD H3068 shall rejoice H8055 (8799) in his works H4639.
[32] He looketh H5027 (8688) on the earth H776, and it trembleth H7460 (8799): he toucheth H5060 (8799) the hills H2022, and they smoke H6225 (8799).
[33] I will sing H7891 (8799) unto the LORD H3068 as long as I live H2416: I will sing H2167 (8762) praise to my God H430 while I have my being H5750.
[34] My meditation H7879 of him shall be sweet H6149 (8799): I will be glad H8055 (8799) in the LORD H3068.
[35] Let the sinners H2400 be consumed H8552 (8735) out of the earth H776, and let the wicked H7563 be no more. Bless H1288 (8761) thou the LORD H3068, O my soul H5315. Praise H1984 (8761) ye the LORD H3050.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 104 (YLT)

[1] Bless, O my soul, Jehovah! Jehovah, my God, Thou hast been very great, Honour and majesty Thou hast put on.
[2] Covering himself with light as a garment, Stretching out the heavens as a curtain,
[3] Who is laying the beam of His upper chambers in the waters, Who is making thick clouds His chariot, Who is walking on wings of wind,
[4] Making His messengers-the winds, His ministers-the flaming fire.
[5] He hath founded earth on its bases, It is not moved to the age and for ever.
[6] The abyss! as with clothing Thou hast covered it, Above hills do waters stand.
[7] From Thy rebuke they flee, From the voice of Thy thunder haste away.
[8] They go up hills-they go down valleys, Unto a place Thou hast founded for them.
[9] A border Thou hast set, they pass not over, They turn not back to cover the earth.
[10] Who is sending forth fountains in valleys, Between hills they go on.
[11] They water every beast of the field, Wild asses break their thirst.
[12] By them the fowl of the heavens doth dwell, From between the branches They give forth the voice.
[13] Watering hills from His upper chambers, From the fruit of Thy works is the earth satisfied.
[14] Causing grass to spring up for cattle, And herb for the service of man, To bring forth bread from the earth,
[15] And wine-it rejoiceth the heart of man, To cause the face to shine from oil, And bread-the heart of man it supporteth.
[16] Satisfied are the trees of Jehovah, Cedars of Lebanon that He hath planted,
[17] Where birds do make nests, The stork-the firs are her house.
[18] The high hills are for wild goats, Rocks are a refuge for conies,
[19] He made the moon for seasons, The sun hath known his place of entrance.
[20] Thou settest darkness, and it is night, In it doth every beast of the forest creep.
[21] The young lions are roaring for prey, And to seek from God their food.
[22] The sun riseth, they are gathered, And in their dens they crouch.
[23] Man goeth forth to his work, And to his service-till evening.
[24] How many have been Thy works, O Jehovah, All of them in wisdom Thou hast made, Full is the earth of thy possessions.
[25] This, the sea, great and broad of sides, There are moving things-innumerable, Living creatures-small with great.
[26] There do ships go: leviathan, That Thou hast formed to play in it.
[27] All of them unto Thee do look, To give their food in its season.
[28] Thou dost give to them-they gather, Thou dost open Thy hand-they are satisfied with good.
[29] Thou hidest Thy face-they are troubled, Thou gatherest their spirit-they expire, And unto their dust they turn back.
[30] Thou sendest out Thy Spirit, they are created, And Thou renewest the face of the ground.
[31] The honour of Jehovah is to the age, Jehovah rejoiceth in His works,
[32] Who is looking to earth, and it trembleth, He cometh against hills, and they smoke.
[33] I sing to Jehovah during my life, I sing praise to my God while I exist.
[34] Sweet is my meditation on Him, I-I do rejoice in Jehovah.
[35] Consumed are sinners from the earth, And the wicked are no more. Bless, O my soul, Jehovah. Praise ye Jehovah!
