1 The pride of the heights, the clear expanse,
The loveliness of the shamayim, with His esteemed display;
2 The sun when it appears, showing a marvellous instrument at its rising;
The work of the Most High.
3 At noon it scorches the land,
And who shall stand its burning heat?
4 A man blowing a furnace works with heat,
But the sun burns the mountains three times more;
Breathing out fiery vapours, and sending out bright rays, it blinds the eyes.
5 Great is 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 who made it;
And at His command it runs speedily.
6 He made the moon also to serve in its season for appointed times,
And a sign for the world.
7 From the moon is the sign of Feasts,
A light that decreases in its completion.
8 The new moon is called after its name,
Increasing wondrously in its changing, being an instrument for the hosts above,
Shining in the expanse of the shamayim;
9 The loveliness of the shamayim, the esteem of the stars,
An ornament giving light in the highest places of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
10 At the command of the Qadosh One they stand in their order,
And never weary in their watches.
11 Look upon the rainbow, and praise He who made it;
It is very lovely in its brightness.
12 It surrounds the shamayim with a splendid arc,
And the hands of the Most High have bent it.
13 By His command He makes the snow to fall in place,
And sends the lightnings of His judgment swiftly.
14 Through this the storehouses are opened;
And clouds fly onward as birds.
15 By His great power He makes the clouds pour out,
And the hailstones are broken small.
16 At His sight the mountains are shaken,
And at His desire the south wind blows.
17 The noise of thunder causes the earth to tremble;
So does the northern storm and the whirlwind.
As birds flying He scatters the snow,
And its falling is as the settling of grasshoppers.
18 The eye marvels at the loveliness of its whiteness,
And the heart is astonished at its falling.
19 He also pours the frost as salt upon the earth,
And being hardened, it lays on the top as sharp icicles.
20 When the cold north wind blows, and the water is hardened into ice,
It remains upon every collection of water,
And clothes the water like a breastplate.
21 It devours the mountains, and burns the wilderness,
And consumes the grass like fire.
22 A mist coming speedily stands as a healer of all,
A refreshing dew coming after heat.
23 By His counsel He calms the deep,
And plants islands within it.
24 Those who sail on the sea tell of its dangers;
And when we hear it with our ears, we marvel at it.
25 For in it are strange and wondrous works,
Differing kinds of all creatures and whales created.
26 By Him the end of them has a benefit of good,
And by His word all exists.
27 We may speak much, and yet come short;
Therefore in summary, He is all.
28 How are we be able to exalt Him?
For He is great above all His works.
29 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is awesome and exceedingly great,
And His power is marvellous.
30 When you esteem 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, exalt Him as much as you may;
For He shall even yet far exceed.
And when you exalt Him, deliver all your strength,
And do not be weary; for you shall never declare enough.
31 Who has seen Him, that he might tell us?
And who could exalt Him as He is?
32 There are still greater than these which are hidden,
For we have seen but a few of His works.
33 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has made all;
And to the reverent has he given wisdom.
