Psalms Chapter 65 |
1For the leader. A psalm of David. A song.
2Praise befits You in Zion, O God;
vows are paid to You;
3all mankind comes to You,
You who hear prayer.
4When all manner of sins overwhelm me,
it is You who forgive our iniquities.
5Happy is the man You choose and bring near
to dwell in Your courts;
may we be sated with the blessings of Your house,
Your holy temple.
6Answer us with victory through awesome deeds,
O God, our deliverer,
in whom all the ends of the earth
and the distant seas
put their trust;
7who by His power fixed the mountains firmly,
who is girded with might,
8who stills the raging seas,
the raging waves,
and tumultuous peoples.
9Those who live at the ends of the earth are awed by Your signs;
You make the lands of sunrise and sunset shout for joy.
10You take care of the earth and irrigate it;
You enrich it greatly,
with the channel of God full of water;
You provide grain for men;
for so do You prepare it.
11Saturating its furrows,
leveling its ridges,
You soften it with showers,
You bless its growth.
12You crown the year with Your bounty;
fatness is distilled in Your paths;
13the pasturelands distill it;
the hills are girded with joy.
14The meadows are clothed with flocks,
the valleys mantled with grain;
they raise a shout, they break into song.
