24 Our Lord, by your wisdom
    you made so many things;
    the whole earth is covered
    with your living creatures.
25 But what about the ocean
    so big and wide?
    It is alive with creatures,
    large and small.
26 And there are the ships,
    as well as Leviathan,[a]
    the monster you created
    to splash in the sea.

27 All of these depend on you
    to provide them with food,
28 and you feed each one
with your own hand,
    until they are full.
29 But when you turn away,
    they are terrified;
    when you end their life,
    they die and rot.
30 You created all of them
    by your Spirit,
    and you give new life
    to the earth.

31 Our Lord, we pray
that your glory
    will last forever
and that you will be pleased
    with what you have done.
32 You look at the earth,
    and it trembles.
    You touch the mountains,
    and smoke goes up.
33 As long as I live,
    I will sing and praise you,
    the Lord God.
34 I hope my thoughts
    will please you,
    because you are the one
    who makes me glad.
