Bless ye the Lord, all ye his hosts;
Bless the Lord, O my soul.
the valleys Unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over;
habitation, Which sing among the branches. He watereth the hills from his chambers: The earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works. 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; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, And oil to make his face to shine, And bread which strengtheneth man's heart. The trees of the Lord are full of
sap; The cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted; Where the birds make their nests: As for the stork, the fir trees are her house. The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; And the rocks for the conies. He appointed the moon for seasons: The sun knoweth his going down. Thou makest darkness, and it is night: Wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.
The young lions roar after their prey, And seek their meat from God. The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, And lay them down in their dens. Man goeth forth unto his work And to his labour until the evening. O Lord, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all: The earth is full of thy riches. So is this great and wide sea, Wherein are things creeping innumerable, Both small and great beasts. There go the ships: There is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to
play therein. These wait all upon thee; That thou mayest give them their meat in due sea
That thou givest them they gather:
their breath, they die,
He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth:
O Give thanks unto the Lord; call
his name: Make known his deeds
the people. Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: Talk
of all his wondrous works. Glory ye in his holy name: Let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. Seek the Lord, and his strength: Seek his face evermore. Remember his marvellous works that he hath one; His wonders, and the judgments of his mouth; Oye seed of Abraham his servant, Ye children of Jacob his chosen. He is the Lord our God: His judgments are in all the earth. He hath remembered his covenant for ever,
The word which he commanded to a thousand ge
nerations. Which covenant he made with Abraham, And his oath unto Isaac; And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, And to Israel for an everlasting covenant: Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, The lot of
your inheritance: When they were but a few men in number; Yea, very few, and strangers in it. When they went from one nation to another, From one kingdom to another people; He suffered no man to do them wrong: Yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; Saying, Touch not mine anointed, And do my prophets no harm. Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: He brake the whole staff of bread. He sent a man before them, Even Joseph, who was sold for a servant: Whose feet they hurt with fetters: He was laid in iron: Until the time that his word came: The word of the Lord tried him. The king sent and loosed him; Even the ruler of the people, and let him go free. He made him lord of his house,
