Amplified Bible

Psalm 65

God’s Abundant Favor to Earth and Man.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. A Song.

1To You belongs silence [the submissive wonder of reverence], and [it bursts into] praise in Zion, O God;
And to You the vow shall be performed.

O You who hear prayer,
To You all mankind comes.

Wickedness and guilt prevail against me;
Yet as for our transgressions,
You forgive them [removing them from Your sight].

Blessed is the one whom You choose and bring near
To dwell in Your courts.
We will be filled with the goodness of Your house,
Your holy temple.


By awesome and wondrous things You answer us in righteousness, O God of our salvation,
You who are the trust and hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest sea;

Who creates the mountains by His strength,
Being clothed with power,

Who stills the roaring of the seas,
The roaring of their waves,
And the tumult of the peoples,

So they who dwell at the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your signs [the evidence of Your presence].
You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy.


You visit the earth and make it overflow [with water];
You greatly enrich it;
The stream of God is full of water;
You provide their grain, when You have prepared the earth.
10 
You water its furrows abundantly,
You smooth its ridges;
You soften it with showers,
You bless its growth.
11 
You crown the year with Your bounty,
And Your paths overflow.
12 
The pastures of the wilderness drip [with dew],
And the hills are encircled with joy.
13 
The meadows are clothed with flocks
And the valleys are covered with grain;
They shout for joy and they sing.

Salme 65

En takkesang ved høstfesten

1Til korlederen: En lovsang af David.

Zions Gud, vi vil lovprise dig,
    vi vil indfri vore løfter til dig.
Du er en Gud, der hører bøn,
    og vi kommer alle til dig.
Når vi indrømmer vores synd,
    oplever vi din nådige tilgivelse.
Lykkelige er de, du lader leve i din nærhed.
    Vi jubler over alt det gode, du giver os.

Du er vores frelser, Gud,
    du redder os ved dine mægtige undere.
Du kan give håb til alle og enhver,
    hvor de end bor i den vide verden.

Du er den almægtige Gud.
    Du formede de enorme bjerge,
du dæmper bølgernes brusen
    og standser nationernes oprør.
Alle folkeslag forundres over dine vældige gerninger,
    du bliver lovprist både i øst og i vest.
10 Du vander jorden og gør den frugtbar,
    du fylder floderne med enorme vandmasser.
Du sørger for væde til jorden,
    så der bliver en god høst.
11 Du sender regn til de pløjede marker,
    så furerne fyldes med vand.
Du blødgør jorden med regn
    og giver grobund for den sæd, der er sået.
12 Når høsten er omme, er laderne fulde,
    din velsignelse betyder overflod.
13 Græsgangene i ødemarken glinser af væde,
    bakkerne blomstrer af fryd.
14 Fårene flokkes på de frodige enge,
    dalene klædes i korn.
Hele dit skaberværk synger af glæde.
