10 He makes springs(A) pour water into the ravines;
    it flows between the mountains.
11 They give water(B) to all the beasts of the field;
    the wild donkeys(C) quench their thirst.
12 The birds of the sky(D) nest by the waters;
    they sing among the branches.(E)
13 He waters the mountains(F) from his upper chambers;(G)
    the land is satisfied by the fruit of his work.(H)
14 He makes grass grow(I) for the cattle,
    and plants for people to cultivate—
    bringing forth food(J) from the earth:
15 wine(K) that gladdens human hearts,
    oil(L) to make their faces shine,
    and bread that sustains(M) their hearts.
16 The trees of the Lord(N) are well watered,
    the cedars of Lebanon(O) that he planted.
17 There the birds(P) make their nests;
    the stork has its home in the junipers.
18 The high mountains belong to the wild goats;(Q)
    the crags are a refuge for the hyrax.(R)

19 He made the moon to mark the seasons,(S)
    and the sun(T) knows when to go down.
20 You bring darkness,(U) it becomes night,(V)
    and all the beasts of the forest(W) prowl.
21 The lions roar for their prey(X)
    and seek their food from God.(Y)
22 The sun rises, and they steal away;
    they return and lie down in their dens.(Z)
23 Then people go out to their work,(AA)
    to their labor until evening.(AB)
