Praise to God for His Salvation and Providence
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. A Song.
1Praise is awaiting You, O God, in Zion;
And to You the vow shall be performed.
2O You who hear prayer,
#(Is. 66:23)To You all flesh will come.
3Iniquities prevail against me;
As for our transgressions,
You will #Ps. 51:2; 79:9; Is. 6:7; (Heb. 9:14; 1 John 1:7, 9)provide atonement for them.
4#Ps. 33:12Blessed is the man You #Ps. 4:3choose,
And cause to approach You,
That he may dwell in Your courts.
#Ps. 36:8We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house,
Of Your holy temple.
5By awesome deeds in righteousness You will answer us,
O God of our salvation,
You who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth,
And of the far-off seas;
6Who established the mountains by His strength,
#Ps. 93:1Being clothed with power;
7#Matt. 8:26You who still the noise of the seas,
The noise of their waves,
#Is. 17:12, 13And the tumult of the peoples.
8They also who dwell in the farthest parts are afraid of Your signs;
You make the outgoings of the morning and evening rejoice.
9You visit the earth and #(Deut. 11:12); Jer. 5:24water it,
You greatly enrich it;
#Ps. 46:4; 104:13; 147:8The river of God is full of water;
You provide their grain,
For so You have prepared it.
10You water its ridges abundantly,
You settle its furrows;
You make it soft with showers,
You bless its growth.
11You crown the year with Your goodness,
And Your paths drip with abundance.
12They drop on the pastures of the wilderness,
And the little hills rejoice on every side.
13The pastures are clothed with flocks;
#Is. 44:23; 55:12The valleys also are covered with grain;
They shout for joy, they also sing.
