2. O Jehovah my God, You Are Very Great!Psalm 104, CB OT p. 946-948When was the last time you were overwhelminglyamazed by God? 3. Bless Jehovah, O my soul! O Jehovah my God you arevery great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty,covering yourself with light as with a garment,stretching our the heavens like a tent. 4. He lays the beams of His chambers on the waters; Hemakes the clouds His chariots; He rides the wings ofthe wind 5. He makes His messengers winds, 6. His ministers a aming re. 7. He set the earth on its foundation, so that it shouldnever be moved. 8. You covered it with the deep as with a garment; thewaters stood above the mountains. At Your rebukethey ed; at the sound of your thunder they took toight. 9. the mountains rose 10. the valleys sank down to the place that you appointedfrom them. 11. You set a boundary that they may not pass, so thatthey might not cover the earth. 12. You make springs gush forth in the valleys; they owbetween the hills; 13. they give drink to every beast of the eld; the wilddonkeys quench their thirst. 14. Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; they singamong the branches 15. From Your lofty abode You water the mountains; 16. the earth is satised with the fruit of Your work 17. You cause the grass to grow for the livestock and 18. plants for man to cultivate, that he may bring forthfood from the earth 19. and wine to gladden the heart of man, oil to makehis face shine and bread to strengthen mans heart 20. The trees of Jehovah are watered abundantly,the cedars of Lebanon that He planted. 21. In them the birds build their nests; the stork has herhome in the r trees. 22. The high mountains are for the wild goats; 23. the rocks are a refuge for the rock badgers. 24. He made the moon to mark the seasons; 25. the sun knows its time for setting. 26. You make darkness, and it is night 27. when all the beasts of the forest creep about. 28. The young lions roar for their prey, seeking their foodfrom God. 29. When the sun rises, they steal away and lie down intheir dens. 30. Man goes out to his work and to his labor until theevening. 31. O Jehovah, how manifold are Your works! In wisdomhave You made them all; the earth is full of yourcreatures. 32. Here is the sea, great and wide, 33. which teems with creatures innumerable, living thingsboth small and great 34. There go the ships, 35. and Leviathan, which You formed to play in it. 36. These all look to You, to give them food in due season.When You give it to them, they gather it up; when Youopen Your hand, they are lled with good things. 37. When You hide Your face, they are dismayed; when Youtake away their breath, they die and return to their dust. 38. When you send forth Your Spirit, they are created, 39. and You renew the face of the ground. 40. May the glory of Jehovah endure forever; may Jehovahrejoice in His works, who looks on the earth and ittrembles, who touches the mountains and they smoke! 41. I will sing to Jehovah as long as I live; I will sing praiseto my God while I have being. May my meditation bepleasing to Him, for I rejoice in Jehovah. 42. Let sinners be consumedfrom the earth, and let thewicked be no more!Psalm 104.35, CB OT p. 948 43. Bless Jehovah, O my soul!Praise Jehovah!Psalm 104.35,CB OT p. 948 44. Observe 45.

And God saw everything that he had made, andbehold, it was very good. 48.
