To the chief Musician, A Psalm and Song of David.
1
Praise waiteth 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.
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 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 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.
