|New International Version (© 2011)|
He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for people to cultivate-- bringing forth food from the earth:
King James Bible
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;
American Standard Version
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,
Young's Literal Translation
Causing grass to spring up for cattle, And herb for the service of man, To bring forth bread from the earth,
Psalm 104:14 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle - Doth God care for oxen? Yes, and there is not a beast of the field that does not share his merciful regards.
And herb for the serviee of man - Plants, esculent herbs, and nutritive grain in general; and thus he brings forth food (לחם lechem, bread) out of the earth. In the germination and growth of a grain of wheat there is a profusion of miracles. God takes care of man, and of all those animals which are so necessary to the convenience and comfort of man.
