24 Remember to extol his work,(A)
    which people have praised in song.(B)
25 All humanity has seen it;(C)
    mortals gaze on it from afar.
26 How great is God—beyond our understanding!(D)
    The number of his years is past finding out.(E)

27 “He draws up the drops of water,(F)
    which distill as rain to the streams[a];(G)
28 the clouds pour down their moisture
    and abundant showers(H) fall on mankind.(I)
29 Who can understand how he spreads out the clouds,
    how he thunders(J) from his pavilion?(K)
30 See how he scatters his lightning(L) about him,
    bathing the depths of the sea.(M)
31 This is the way he governs[b] the nations(N)
    and provides food(O) in abundance.(P)
32 He fills his hands with lightning
    and commands it to strike its mark.(Q)
33 His thunder announces the coming storm;(R)
    even the cattle make known its approach.[c](S)
