PSALMS

And of the far distant seas;
7Who by Thy strength settest fast the mountains,
Who art girded about with might;
8Who stillest the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves,
And the tumult of the peoples;
9So that they that dwell in the uttermost parts stand in awe of Thy signs;
Thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
 
10Thou hast remembered the earth, and watered her, greatly enriching her,
With the river of God that is full of water;
Thou preparest them corn, for so preparest Thou her.
11Watering her ridges abundantly,
Settling down the furrows thereof,
Thou makest her soft with showers;
Thou blessest the growth thereof.
12Thou crownest the year with Thy goodness;
And Thy paths drop fatness.
13The pastures of the wilderness do drop;
And the hills are girded with joy.
14The meadows are clothed with flocks;
The valleys also are covered over with corn;
They shout for joy, yea, they sing.


66 For the Leader. A Song, a Psalm.


Shout unto God, all the earth;
2Sing praises unto the glory of His name;
Make His praise glorious.
3Say unto God: 'How tremendous is Thy work!
Through the greatness of Thy power shall Thine enemies dwindle away before Thee.
4All the earth shall worship Thee,
And shall sing praises unto Thee;
They shall sing praises to Thy name.' Selah
 
5Come, and see the works of God;
He is terrible in His doing toward the children of men.
6He turned the sea into dry land;
They went through the river on foot;
There let us rejoice in Him!
7Who ruleth by His might for ever;
His eyes keep watch upon the nations;
Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah
 
8Bless our God, ye peoples,
And make the voice of His praise to be heard;
9Who hath set our soul in life,
And suffered not our foot to be moved,
10For Thou, O God, hast tried us;
Thou hast refined us, as silver is refined.
11Thou didst bring us into the hold;
Thou didst lay constraint upon our loins.
12Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads;
We went through fire and through water;
But Thou didst bring us out unto abundance.
 
13I will come into Thy house with burnt-offerings,
I will perform unto Thee my vows,
14Which my lips have uttered,
And my mouth hath spoken, when I was in distress.
15I will offer unto Thee burnt-offerings of fatlings,
