Psalm 65 King James Version

<< Psalm 64 | Psalm 65 | Psalm 66 >>

Praise for God's Bounty in Nature

65 Praise waiteth [1] for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed. 2  O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. 3  Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away. 4  Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple. 5  By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:

6  Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power: 7  Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people. 8  They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice. [2] 9  Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it. 10  Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest [3] the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof. 11  Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness. 12  They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice [4] on every side. 13  The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.
