Psalms 104:10-13

Context

104:10 He turns springs into streams; 1 

they flow between the mountains.

104:11 They provide water for all the animals in the field;

the wild donkeys quench their thirst.

104:12 The birds of the sky live beside them;

they chirp among the bushes. 2 

104:13 He waters the mountains from the upper rooms of his palace; 3 

the earth is full of the fruit you cause to grow. 4 

1 tn Heb “[the] one who sends springs into streams.” Another option is to translate, “he sends streams [i.e., streams that originate from springs] into the valleys” (cf. NIV).

2 tn Heb “among the thick foliage they give a sound.”

3 tn Heb “from his upper rooms.”

4 tn Heb “from the fruit of your works the earth is full.” The translation assumes that “fruit” is literal here. If “fruit” is understood more abstractly as “product; result,” then one could translate, “the earth flourishes as a result of your deeds” (cf. NIV, NRSV, REB).
