For the director of music. A psalm of David. A song.
65 God, ·you will be praised in Jerusalem [L praise is due/proper/ fitting to you in Zion; C the location of the Temple]. We will ·keep our promises [fulfill our vows] to you. 2 You ·hear [or answer] our prayers. All ·people [L flesh] will come to you. 3 Our guilt ·overwhelms [overpowers] us, but you ·forgive [wipe/blot out; make atonement for] our ·sins [transgressions]. 4 ·Happy [Blessed] are the people you choose and ·invite [L bring near] to stay in your court. We are ·filled [satisfied] with good things in your house, your holy Temple.
5 You answer us in amazing ways with ·vindication [victory; righteousness], God our ·Savior [Victor]. People ·everywhere on [L of all the ends of] the earth and ·beyond the sea [L the farthest seas] ·trust [have confidence in] you. 6 You ·made [established] the mountains by your strength; you are ·dressed [girded; armed] in power. 7 You ·stopped [silence; calm] the roaring seas, the roaring waves [C representing chaos], and the ·uproar [tumult] of the ·nations [peoples]. 8 Even those people at the ends of the earth fear your ·miracles [signs]. You are praised from ·where the sun rises [the east; L the gateways of the morning] to ·where it sets [the west; L evening].
9 You ·take care of [visit] the land and water it; you make it very ·fertile [rich]. The ·rivers [channels] of God are full of water. Grain grows because you make it grow. 10 You send rain to the plowed fields; you ·fill the rows with water [level its ridges]. You soften the ground with rain, and then you bless ·it with crops [its growth]. 11 You ·give [L crown] the year ·a good harvest [L with your goodness/bounty], and ·you load the wagons with many crops [L your wagon tracks/ruts drip with plenty]. 12 The ·desert [wilderness] ·is covered [drips] with ·grass [pasturage] and the hills with happiness. 13 The ·pastures [meadows] are ·full of [L clothed with] flocks, and the valleys are ·covered [wrapped] with grain. Everything shouts and sings for joy.
