Psalms - Chapter 65


The King James Version Basic English Version (BBE)

1 Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.

1 <To the chief music-maker. A Psalm. Of David. A Song.> It is right for you, O God, to have praise in Zion: to you let the offering be made.

2 O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.

2 To you, O hearer of prayer, let the words of all flesh come.

3 Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.

3 Evils have overcome us: but as for our sins, you will take them away.

4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

4 Happy is the man of your selection, to whom you give a resting-place in your house; we will be full of the good things out of your holy place.

5 By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:

5 You will give us an answer in righteousness by great acts of power, O God of our salvation; you who are the hope of all the ends of the earth, and of the far-off lands of the sea;

6 Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power:

6 The God by whose strength the mountains are fixed; who is robed with power:

7 Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.

7 Who makes the loud voice of the sea quiet, and puts an end to the sound of its waves.

8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.

8 Those in the farthest parts of the earth have fear when they see your signs: the outgoings of the morning and evening are glad because of you.

9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.

9 You have given your blessing to the earth, watering it and making it fertile; the river of God is full of water: and having made it ready, you give men grain.

10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.

10 You make the ploughed lands full of water; you make smooth the slopes: you make the earth soft with showers, sending your blessing on its growth.

11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.

11 The year is crowned with the good you give; life-giving rain is dropping from your footsteps,

12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.

12 Falling on the grass of the waste land: and the little hills are glad on every side.

13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.

13 The grass-land is thick with flocks; the valleys are full of grain; they give glad cries and songs of joy.
