Psalm 104:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Psalm 104[a]

Praise of God the Creator

I

Bless the Lord, my soul!
    Lord, my God, you are great indeed!
You are clothed with majesty and splendor,
    robed in light as with a cloak.
You spread out the heavens like a tent;

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 104 A hymn praising God who easily and skillfully made rampaging waters and primordial night into a world vibrant with life. The psalmist describes God’s splendor in the heavens (Ps 104:1–4), how the chaotic waters were tamed to fertilize and feed the world (Ps 104:5–18), and how primordial night was made into a gentle time of refreshment (Ps 104:19–23). The picture is like Gn 1:1–2: a dark and watery chaos is made dry and lighted so that creatures might live. The psalmist reacts to the beauty of creation with awe (Ps 104:24–34). May sin not deface God’s work (Ps 104:35)!

Psalm 104:29-30 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

29 [a]When you hide your face, they panic.
    Take away their breath, they perish
    and return to the dust.
30 Send forth your spirit, they are created
    and you renew the face of the earth.
