Psalms 65



1 To the victor; a psalm of David, a song.
2 For Thee stillness is praise, O God, in Zion;
and to Thee shall the vow be paid.

2 3 O Thou who hearest prayer,
to Thee shall all flesh come.

3 4 Words of iniquities prevail against me;
as for our transgressions, Thou wilt make·​·atonement·​·for them.

4 5 Happy is he whom Thou choosest, and causest to come·​·near;
he will inhabit Thy courts;
we shall be satisfied with the goodness of Thy house,
With the holy place of Thy temple.

5 6 Fearsome things wilt Thou answer us in justice,
O God of our salvation;
the trust of all the ends* of the earth,
and of the sea, of those who are afar·​·off;

6 7 who, in His power, establishes the mountains,
being girded with might;

7 8 who quells the uproar of the seas, the uproar of their waves,
and the noise of the peoples.

8 9 And they who dwell in the ends shall fear at Thy signs;
Thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to sing·​·aloud.

9 10 Thou visitest the earth and delightest·​·in her,
Thou enrichest her much;
the stream of God is·​·full of water;
Thou preparest them grain, when Thou so preparest her.

10 11 Her furrows Thou soakest;
Thou settlest her ridges;
With showers Thou dissolvest her;
her growth Thou blessest.

11 12 Thou crownest the year with Thy goodness;
and Thy paths drip fatness.

12 13 They drip upon the sheep·​·folds of the wilderness,
and the hills gird themselves with rejoicing.

13 14 The meadows clothe· themselves ·with the flock, and the valleys shroud· themselves ·with grain;
they shout, yea, they sing.
