Psalm 104:1-9 New International Version

The LORD's Care for His Creation

104 1  Praise the Lord, my soul. Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty. 2  The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent 3  and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind. 4  He makes winds his messengers,[1]flames of fire his servants. 5  He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved. 6  You covered it with the watery depths as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains. 7  But at your rebuke the waters fled, at the sound of your thunder they took to flight; 8  they flowed over the mountains, they went down into the valleys, to the place you assigned for them. 9  You set a boundary they cannot cross; never again will they cover the earth.
