You care for the land and water it;(A)
    you enrich it abundantly.(B)
The streams of God are filled with water
    to provide the people with grain,(C)
    for so you have ordained it.[a]
10 You drench its furrows and level its ridges;
    you soften it with showers(D) and bless its crops.
11 You crown the year with your bounty,(E)
    and your carts overflow with abundance.(F)
12 The grasslands of the wilderness overflow;(G)
    the hills are clothed with gladness.(H)
13 The meadows are covered with flocks(I)
    and the valleys are mantled with grain;(J)
    they shout for joy and sing.(K)

  1. Psalm 65:9 Or for that is how you prepare the land

Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.

10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.

11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.

12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.

13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.
