Psalms 104:19-23


104:19 He made the moon to mark the months, 1 

and the sun sets according to a regular schedule. 2 

104:20 You make it dark and night comes, 3 

during which all the beasts of the forest prowl around.

104:21 The lions roar for prey,

seeking their food from God. 4 

104:22 When the sun rises, they withdraw

and sleep 5  in their dens.

104:23 Men then go out to do their work,

and labor away until evening. 6

136:7 to the one who made the great lights,

for his loyal love endures,

136:8 the sun to rule by day,

for his loyal love endures,

136:9 the moon and stars to rule by night,

for his loyal love endures,

1 tn Heb “he made [the] moon for appointed times.” The phrase “appointed times” probably refers to the months of the Hebrew lunar calendar.

2 tn Heb more metaphorically, “knows its setting.”

3 tn Heb “you make darkness, so that it might be night.”

4 sn The lions’ roaring is viewed as a request for food from God.

5 tn Heb “lie down.”

6 tn Heb “man goes out to his work, and to his labor until evening.”
