Psalms Chapter 65 – The blessedness of God’s chosen. (To the chief Musician, A Psalm and Song of David.)

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


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


3 Iniquities prevail against me; as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge 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.


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;


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


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


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.


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.


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


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


12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness; and the little hills rejoice 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.
