Bible: Psalm 104:21-30
104:21 The lions roar for prey,
seeking their food from God. 1
104:22 When the sun rises, they withdraw
and sleep 2 in their dens.
104:23 Men then go out to do their work,
and labor away until evening. 3
104:24 How many living things you have made, O
You have exhibited great skill in making all of them; 5
the earth is full of the living things you have made.
104:25 Over here is the deep, wide sea, 6
which teems with innumerable swimming creatures, 7
living things both small and large.
104:26 The ships travel there,
and over here swims the whale 8 you made to play in it.
104:27 All of your creatures 9 wait for you
to provide them with food on a regular basis. 10
104:28 You give food to them and they receive it;
you open your hand and they are filled with food. 11
104:29 When you ignore them, they panic. 12
When you take away their life’s breath, they die
and return to dust.
104:30 When you send your life-giving breath, they are created,
and you replenish the surface of the ground.
