CEBCommon English Bible
25And then there’s the sea, wide and deep,
with its countless creatures—
living things both small and large.
26There go the ships on it,
and Leviathan, which you made, plays in it!
27All your creations wait for you
to give them their food on time.
28When you give it to them, they gather it up;
when you open your hand, they are filled completely full!
29But when you hide your face, they are terrified;
when you take away their breath,
they die and return to dust.
30When you let loose your breath, they are created,
and you make the surface of the ground brand-new again.
31Let the LORD’s glory last forever!
Let the LORD rejoice in all he has made!
32He has only to look at the earth, and it shakes.
God just touches the mountains, and they erupt in smoke.
33I will sing to the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I’m still alive.
34Let my praise be pleasing to him;
I’m rejoicing in the LORD!
35Let sinners be wiped clean from the earth;
let the wicked be no more.
But let my whole being bless the LORD!
Praise the LORD!
