1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm and Song of David. To You silence is praise, O God, in Zion; and to You is a vow paid.
2 To You who hears prayer, all flesh comes.
3 Things of iniquity are mightier than I; [as for] our transgressions, You shall purge them away.
4 Blessed [is] the [one] whom You choose, and cause to come near You. He shall dwell [in] Your courts; we shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, of Your holy temple.
5 [By] awesome things in righteousness You will answer us, O God of our salvation; who are the hope of all the ends of the earth and the sea, of [those] far away.
6 The mountains are established by Your strength, banded together with might,
7 who stills the noise of the sea, the roar of their waves, and the uproar of the peoples.
8 And the inhabitants of the furthermost places are afraid of Your signs; You make the beginning of the morning and the evening rejoice.
9 You visit the earth and water it; You greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; You provide their grain, for in this way You have prepared it.
10 You fill its terraces with water; You deepen its furrows; You make it soft with showers; You bless the sprouting of it.
11 You crown the year with Your goodness, and Your paths drop fatness.
12 They drop [on] the pastures of the wilderness; and the little hills gird themselves [with] joy.
13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with grain; they shout for joy and sing.
