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!

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!
