1 For the end, a Psalm and Song of David.
2 Praise becomes thee, O God, in Sion; and to thee shall the vow be performed. 3 Hear my prayer; to thee all flesh shall come. 4 The words of transgressors have overpowered us; but do thou pardon our sins. 5 Blessed is he whom thou hast chosen and adopted; he shall dwell in thy courts; we shall be filled with the good things of thy house; thy temple is holy. 6 Thou art wonderful in righteousness. Hearken to us, O God our Saviour; the hope of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are on the sea afar off: 7 who dost * Gr. prepare.establish the mountains in thy strength, being girded about with power; 8 who troublest the depth of the sea, the sounds of its waves. 9 The nations shall be troubled, and they that inhabit the ends of the earth shall be afraid of thy signs; thou wilt cause the outgoings of morning and evening to rejoice.
10 Thou hast visited the earth, and saturated it; thou hast abundantly enriched it. The river of God is filled with water; thou hast prepared their food, for thus is the preparation of it. 11 Saturate her furrows, multiply her fruits; the crop springing up shall rejoice in its drops. 12 Thou wilt bless the crown of the year because of thy goodness; and thy plains shall be filled with fatness. 13 The mountains of the wilderness shall be enriched; and the hills shall gird themselves with joy. 14 The rams of the flock are clothed with wool, and the valleys shall abound in corn; they shall cry aloud, yea they shall sing hymns.
