You care for the land and water it;(A)
    you enrich it abundantly.(B)
The streams of God are filled with water
    to provide the people with grain,(C)
    for so you have ordained it.[a]
10 You drench its furrows and level its ridges;
    you soften it with showers(D) and bless its crops.
11 You crown the year with your bounty,(E)
    and your carts overflow with abundance.(F)
12 The grasslands of the wilderness overflow;(G)
    the hills are clothed with gladness.(H)
13 The meadows are covered with flocks(I)
    and the valleys are mantled with grain;(J)
    they shout for joy and sing.(K)
