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.

  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.
