Study Guide – Psalm 104:16-23

Psalm104-16-23

16 The trees of the Lord are well cared for—
the cedars of Lebanon that he planted.
17 There the birds make their nests,
and the storks make their homes in the cypresses.
18 High in the mountains live the wild goats,
and the rocks form a refuge for the hyraxes.

19 You made the moon to mark the seasons,
and the sun knows when to set.
20 You send the darkness, and it becomes night,
when all the forest animals prowl about.
21 Then the young lions roar for their prey,
stalking the food provided by God.
22 At dawn they slink back
into their dens to rest.
23 Then people go off to their work,
where they labor until evening. NLT

 

What is it about trees that point to the work of the Lord?

 

What is it about mountains that point to the work of the Lord?

 

What is it about animals that point to the work of the Lord?

 

After the profound observations in verses 16-22, how does verse 23 fit ironically into this section of Psalm 104?

Sometime in the next 24 hours, take a moment, out of the regular, mundane schedules of your labor, to notice the Lord’s work all around you.
