Context: God, whose greatness is shrouded in light, can only be partially comprehended by man. In the seas is the foundation of the dwelling place of the Lord; the clouds are his chariot. At the sound of His voice the earth takes form. And in the earth:

He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.
The trees of the Lord are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;
Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.
