Psalm 65

Praise Awaits God in Zion

For the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. A song.

1Praise awaits You, O God, in Zion;

to You our vows will be fulfilled.

2 O You who listen to prayer,

all people will come to You.

3 When iniquities prevail against me,

You atone for our transgressions.

4 Blessed is the one You choose

and bring near to dwell in Your courts!

We are filled with the goodness of Your house,

the holiness of Your temple.

5 With awesome deeds of righteousness You answer us,

O God of our salvation,

the hope of all the ends of the earth

and of the farthest seas.

6 You formed the mountains by Your power,

having girded Yourself with might.

7 You stilled the roaring of the seas,

the pounding of their waves,

and the tumult of the nations.

8 Those who live far away fear Your wonders;

You make the dawn and sunset shout for joy. a 

9 You attend to the earth and water it; b 

with abundance You enrich it.

The streams of God are full of water,

for You prepare our grain

by providing for the earth. c 

10 You soak its furrows and level its ridges;

You soften it with showers and bless its growth.

11 You crown the year with Your bounty,

and Your paths overflow with plenty.

12 The pastures of the wilderness overflow;

the hills are robed with joy.

13 The pastures are clothed with flocks,

and the valleys are decked with grain.

They shout in triumph;

indeed, they sing.



8 a Or where morning dawns and evening fades You call forth songs of joy.
9 b Or and make it overflow
9 c Or to provide the people with grain, for so You have ordained it
