Our Farm’s Interpretation of Psalm 104:10-24

 

 

 

[10] Thou makest springs gush forth in the valleys; they flow between the hills,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[11] they give drink to every beast of the field;

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…the wild asses quench their thirst.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[12] By them the birds of the air have their habitation;



 

 

 



 

 

…they sing among the branches.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

13] From thy lofty abode thou waterest the mountains;

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

….the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[14] Thou dost cause the grass to grow for the cattle,



 

 

 

 



 

 

…and plants for man to cultivate, that he may bring forth food from the earth,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[15] and wine to gladden the heart of man,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…oil to make his face shine,



 

 

 

 

 

 

…and bread to strengthen man’s heart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[16] The trees of the LORD are watered abundantly, the cedars of Lebanon which he planted.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[17] In them the birds build their nests; the stork has her home in the fir trees.

 

 

 

 

 

[18] The high mountains are for the wild goats; the rocks are a refuge for the badgers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[19] Thou hast made the moon to mark the seasons; the sun knows its time for setting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

[20] Thou makest darkness, and it is night, when all the beasts of the forest creep forth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[21] The young lions roar for their prey, seeking their food from God.





 

 

 

 

 

 

[22] When the sun rises, they get them away and lie down in their dens.

 

 

 

 

[23] Man goes forth to his work and to his labor until the evening.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[24] O LORD, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all; the earth is full of thy creatures.



One thought on “Our Farm’s Interpretation of Psalm 104:10-24

  1. I love the farm pictures. How beautifully the Psalms connect with all of our lives…even if we have to stretch our imaginations a bit. I particularly like the young lion.
