Psalm 65 serves as a poetic tribute to God's divine power and goodness, offering a multi-faceted view of God as Creator, Sustainer, and Provider. The psalm starts by acknowledging God's deservingness of praise and His readiness to answer prayers. It then unfolds to present God's dominion over nature, illustrating His control over the seas, mountains, and even the dawn and dusk. Furthermore, the psalm exalts God's providence in enriching the earth, from saturating the ground with rain to blessing the harvest. Psalm 65, therefore, harmonizes the awe-inspiring and benevolent aspects of God, wrapping them together into a magnificent hymn of thanksgiving and reverence. This psalm encourages us to appreciate God's hand in both the grandeur of nature and the specifics of our personal lives.

Psalms 65

1  (To the chief Musician, A Psalm and Song of David.) Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
🔑 Devotional

2  O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.

3  Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.

4  Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

5  By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:

6  Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power:

7  Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.

8  They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.

9  Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.

10  Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.

11  Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.

12  They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.

13  The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.
