New International Version

Psalm 104

Psalm 104

Praise the Lord, my soul.

Lord my God, you are very great;
    you are clothed with splendor and majesty.

The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment;
    he stretches out the heavens like a tent
    and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters.
He makes the clouds his chariot
    and rides on the wings of the wind.
He makes winds his messengers,[a]
    flames of fire his servants.

He set the earth on its foundations;
    it can never be moved.
You covered it with the watery depths as with a garment;
    the waters stood above the mountains.
But at your rebuke the waters fled,
    at the sound of your thunder they took to flight;
they flowed over the mountains,
    they went down into the valleys,
    to the place you assigned for them.
You set a boundary they cannot cross;
    never again will they cover the earth.

10 He makes springs pour water into the ravines;
    it flows between the mountains.
11 They give water to all the beasts of the field;
    the wild donkeys quench their thirst.
12 The birds of the sky nest by the waters;
    they sing among the branches.
13 He waters the mountains from his upper chambers;
    the land is satisfied by the fruit of his work.
14 He makes grass grow for the cattle,
    and plants for people to cultivate—
    bringing forth food from the earth:
15 wine that gladdens human hearts,
    oil to make their faces shine,
    and bread that sustains their hearts.
16 The trees of the Lord are well watered,
    the cedars of Lebanon that he planted.
17 There the birds make their nests;
    the stork has its home in the junipers.
18 The high mountains belong to the wild goats;
    the crags are a refuge for the hyrax.

19 He made the moon to mark the seasons,
    and the sun knows when to go down.
20 You bring darkness, it becomes night,
    and all the beasts of the forest prowl.
21 The lions roar for their prey
    and seek their food from God.
22 The sun rises, and they steal away;
    they return and lie down in their dens.
23 Then people go out to their work,
    to their labor until evening.

24 How many are your works, Lord!
    In wisdom you made them all;
    the earth is full of your creatures.
25 There is the sea, vast and spacious,
    teeming with creatures beyond number—
    living things both large and small.
26 There the ships go to and fro,
    and Leviathan, which you formed to frolic there.

27 All creatures look to you
    to give them their food at the proper time.
28 When you give it to them,
    they gather it up;
when you open your hand,
    they are satisfied with good things.
29 When you hide your face,
    they are terrified;
when you take away their breath,
    they die and return to the dust.
30 When you send your Spirit,
    they are created,
    and you renew the face of the ground.

31 May the glory of the Lord endure forever;
    may the Lord rejoice in his works—
32 he who looks at the earth, and it trembles,
    who touches the mountains, and they smoke.

33 I will sing to the Lord all my life;
    I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
34 May my meditation be pleasing to him,
    as I rejoice in the Lord.
35 But may sinners vanish from the earth
    and the wicked be no more.

Praise the Lord, my soul.

Praise the Lord.[b]

诗篇 104

称颂创造主——上帝

1我的心啊,要称颂耶和华。
我的上帝耶和华啊,
你是多么伟大!
你以尊贵和威严为衣,
你身披光华如披外袍,
你铺展穹苍如铺幔子。
你在水中设立自己楼阁的栋梁。
你以云彩为车驾,乘风飞驰。
风是你的使者,
火焰是你的仆役。
你奠立大地的根基,
使它永不动摇。
你以深水为衣覆盖大地,
淹没群山。
你一声怒叱,众水便奔逃;
你一声雷鸣,众水就奔流,
漫过山峦,流进山谷,
归到你指定的地方。
你为众水划定不可逾越的界线,
以免大地再遭淹没。

10 耶和华使泉水涌流在谷地,
奔腾在山间,
11 让野地的动物有水喝,
野驴可以解渴。
12 飞鸟也在溪旁栖息,
在树梢上歌唱。
13 祂从天上的楼阁降雨在山间,
大地因祂的作为而丰美富饶。
14 祂使绿草如茵,滋养牲畜,
让人种植作物,
享受大地的出产,
15 有沁人心怀的醇酒、
滋润容颜的膏油、
增强活力的五谷。
16 耶和华种植了黎巴嫩的香柏树,
使它们得到充沛的水源,
17 鸟儿在树上筑巢,
鹳鸟在松树上栖息。
18 高山是野山羊的住处,
峭壁是石獾的藏身之所。
19 你命月亮定节令,
使太阳自知西沉。
20 你造黑暗,定为夜晚,
作林中百兽出没的时间。
21 壮狮吼叫着觅食,
寻找上帝所赐的食物。
22 太阳升起,
百兽便退回自己的洞窟中休息,
23 人们外出工作,直到黄昏。

24 耶和华啊,你的创造多么繁多!
你用智慧造了这一切,
大地充满了你创造的万物。
25 汪洋浩瀚,
充满了无数的大小水族,
26 船只往来于海上,
你造的鲸鱼也在水中嬉戏。
27 它们都倚靠你按时供应食物。
28 它们从你那里得到供应,
你伸手赐下美食,
使它们饱足。
29 你若对它们弃而不顾,
它们会惊慌失措。
你一收回它们的气息,
它们便死亡,归于尘土。
30 你一吹气便创造了它们,
你使大地更新。

31 愿耶和华的荣耀存到永远!
愿耶和华因自己的创造而欢欣!
32 祂一看大地,大地就震动;
祂一摸群山,群山就冒烟。
33 我要一生一世向耶和华歌唱,
我一息尚存就要赞美上帝。
34 愿祂喜悦我的默想,
祂是我喜乐的泉源。
35 愿罪人从地上消逝,
愿恶人荡然无存。

我的心啊,要称颂耶和华!
你们要赞美耶和华!
