    they flow between the hills,(A)
11 giving drink to every wild animal;
    the wild asses quench their thirst.(B)
12 By the streams[a] the birds of the air have their habitation;
    they sing among the branches.(C)
13 From your lofty abode you water the mountains;
    the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work.(D)

14 You cause the grass to grow for the cattle
    and plants for people to cultivate,
to bring forth food from the earth(E)
15     and wine to gladden the human heart,
oil to make the face shine
    and bread to strengthen the human heart.(F)
16 The trees of the field[b] are watered abundantly,
    the cedars of Lebanon that he planted.
17 In them the birds build their nests;
    the stork has its home in the fir trees.
18 The high mountains are for the wild goats;
    the rocks are a refuge for the coneys.(G)
