Tehillim/Psalms 65.9-11


Those who live at the ends of the earth are awed by Your signs;

You make the lands of sunrise and sunset shout for joy.

You take care of the earth and irrigate it;

You enrich it greatly with the channel of G-d full of water;

You provide grain for men, for so do You prepare it.

Saturating its furrows, leveling its ridges,

You soften it with showers,

You bless its growth.

Tehillim/Psalms 65.9-11

Tehillim/Psalms 104.25, 27, 31

There is the sea, vast and wide,

with its creatures beyond number,

living things, small and great. . . .

All of them look to You

to give them their food when it is due. . . .

May the glory of the Lord endure forever;

and the Lord rejoice in His works.

Tehillim/Psalms 104.25, 27, 31

Why so downcast, my soul,

why disquieted within me?

Have hope in G-d;

I will yet praise Him,

my ever-present help, my G-d.

I will be to Israel like dew;

Not always shall the needy be ignored,

nor the hope of the afflicted forever lost.
