    the cedars of Lebanon(B) that he planted.
17 There the birds(C) make their nests;
    the stork has its home in the junipers.
18 The high mountains belong to the wild goats;(D)
    the crags are a refuge for the hyrax.(E)

19 He made the moon to mark the seasons,(F)
    and the sun(G) knows when to go down.
