Psalms 104:14-15

Context

104:14 He provides grass 1  for the cattle,

and crops for people to cultivate, 2 

so they can produce food from the ground, 3 

104:15 as well as wine that makes people feel so good, 4 

and so they can have oil to make their faces shine, 5 

as well as food that sustains people’s lives. 6 

Psalms 104:27-28

Context

104:27 All of your creatures 7  wait for you

to provide them with food on a regular basis. 8 

104:28 You give food to them and they receive it;

you open your hand and they are filled with food. 9 

1 tn Heb “causes the grass to sprout up.”

2 tn Heb “for the service of man” (see Gen 2:5).

3 tn Heb “to cause food to come out from the earth.”

4 tn Heb “and wine [that] makes the heart of man happy.”

5 tn Heb “to make [the] face shine from oil.” The Hebrew verb צָהַל (tsahal, “to shine”) occurs only here in the OT. It appears to be an alternate form of צָהַר (tsahar), a derivative from צָהָרִים (tsaharim, “noon”).

6 tn Heb “and food [that] sustains the heart of man.”

7 tn Heb “All of them.” The pronoun “them” refers not just to the sea creatures mentioned in vv. 25-26, but to all living things (see v. 24). This has been specified in the translation as “all of your creatures” for clarity.

8 tn Heb “to give their food in its time.”

9 tn Heb “they are satisfied [with] good.”
