  1. My soul, bless the Lord. My God, You are very great, You are attired with majesty and beauty.
  2. [You] enwrap Yourself with light like a garment; [You] extend the heavens like a curtain.
  3. Who roofs His upper chambers with water; Who makes clouds His chariot, which goes on the wings of the wind.
  4. He makes winds His messengers, burning fire His ministers.
  5. He founded the earth on its foundations that it not falter to eternity.
  6. You covered the deep as [with] a garment; the waters stand on the mountains.
  7. From Your rebuke they fled; from the sound of Your thunder they hastened away.
  8. They ascended mountains, they descended into valleys to this place, which You had founded for them.
  9. You set a boundary that they should not cross, that they should not return to cover the earth.
  10. He sends the springs into the streams; they go between the mountains.
  11. They water every beast of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst.
  12. Beside them the fowl of the heavens dwell; from between the branches they let out their voices.
  13. He waters the mountains from His upper chambers; from the fruit of Your works the earth is sated.
  14. He causes grass to sprout for the animals and vegetation for the work of man, to bring forth bread from the earth.
  15. And wine, which cheers man’s heart, to make the face shine from oil, and bread, which sustains man’s heart.
  16. The Lord’s trees are sated, the cedars of Lebanon, which He planted.
  17. Where birds nest; as for the stork-the high junipers are its home.
  18. The lofty mountains for the ibexes; the rocks a shelter for the hyraxes.
  19. He made the moon for the appointed seasons; the sun knows its setting.
  20. You make darkness and it is night, in which every beast of the forest moves about.
  21. The young lions roar for prey and to beg their food from God.
  22. When the sun rises they gather in and couch in their dens.
  23. Man goes out to his work, to his labor until evening.
  24. How great are Your works, O Lord! You have made them all with wisdom; the earth is full of Your possessions!
  25. This sea-great and wide; there are creeping things and innumerable beasts, both small and large.
  26. There the ships go; You formed this leviathan with which to sport.
  27. They all look to You with hope, to give their food in its time.
  28. You give them that they may gather; You open Your hand that they may be sated with goodness.
  29. You hide Your countenance and they are frightened; You gather in their spirit and they perish and return to their dust.
  30. You will send forth Your spirit and they will be created, and You will renew the surface of the ground.
  31. The glory of the Lord will be forever; the Lord will rejoice with His works.
  32. He Who looks at the earth and it quakes; He touches the mountains and they emit smoke.
  33. I shall sing to the Lord while I am alive; I shall sing praises to my God as long as I exist.
  34. May my speech be pleasing to Him; I shall rejoice with the Lord.
  35. Sinners will be destroyed from the earth and the wicked will be no more; my soul, bless the Lord. Hallelujah.
