O Lord, my God, thou art very great

Psalm 104

Another of David’s grandest Psalms is—Psalm 104. which our space compels us to read almost without comment.

Psalm 104:6-9

Probably alluding to the flood.

Psalm 104:6-9

At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away. They go up by the mountains; rising in mists and exhalations

Psalm 104:6-9

they go down by the valleys rippling in rills, leaping in cataracts

Psalm 104:18

So that each place has its creature, and each creature its place. The loneliest spots are populous.

Psalm 104:19-23

Thus each period has its appropriate action, the wheels of providence never stand still.

Psalm 104:24-30

God is in all things, great or small. He has not left the world to mere laws and forces, but he is working everywhere. Let us behold him and adore.

Psalm 104:31

And if he does so, it is not wise on our part to close our eyes to nature’s beauties under the notion of superior spirituality.

Psalm 104:35

For they alone spoil creation, and blot the Maker’s handiwork.
