Psalms 104

104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art a clothed with honour and majesty.

(a) The prophet shows that we do not need to enter into the heavens to seek God, for as much as all the order of nature, with the propriety and placing of the elements, are living mirrors to see his majesty in.
104:4 Who b maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

(b) As the prophet here shows that all visible powers are ready to serve God: so in (Hebrews 1:7) the angels also, are obedient to his commandment.
104:6 Thou coveredst it with the c deep as [with] a garment: the d waters stood above the mountains.
(c) You make the sea to be an ornament to the earth.
(d) If by your power you did not bridle the rage of the waters, the whole world would be destroyed.
104:11 They give drink to every e beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.
(e) If God provides for the beasts, much more will he extend his provident care to man.
104:12 By f them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, [which] sing among the branches.
(f) There is no part of the world so barren where most evident signs of Godís blessing do not appear.
104:13 He watereth the hills from his g chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
(g) From the clouds.
104:14 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of h man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
(h) He describes Godís providential care over man, who not only provides necessary things for him such as herbs and other meat: but also things to rejoice and comfort him such as wine and oil or ointments.
104:19 He appointed i the moon for seasons: k the sun knoweth his going down.
(i) As to separate the night from the day, and to note days, months and years.
(k) That is, by his course, either far or near, it notes summer, winter and other seasons.
104:21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat l from God.
l That is, they only find meat according to Godís providence, who cares even for the brute beasts.
104:23 m Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
(m) That is, when the day springs for the light is as it were a shield to defend man against the tyranny and fierceness of beasts.
104:24 O LORD, how n manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
(n) He confesses that no tongue is able to express Godís works nor mind to comprehend them.
104:27 o These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give [them] their meat in due season.
(o) God is a nourishing father, who provides for all creatures their daily foods.
104:29 Thou p hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.
(p) As by your presence all things have life; so if you withdraw your blessings they all perish.
104:30 Thou q sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.
(q) As the death of creatures shows that we are nothing of ourselves: so their generation declares that we receive all things from our Creator.
104:32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they r smoke.
(r) Godís merciful face gives strength to the earth, but his severe countenance burns the mountains.
104:35 Let the sinners be s consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
(s) Who infect the world, and so cause it to be that God cannot rejoice in his work.
