|New International Version (© 2011)|
You bring darkness, it becomes night, and all the beasts of the forest prowl.
King James Bible
Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.
American Standard Version
Thou makest darkness, and it is night, Wherein all the beasts of the forest creep forth.
Young's Literal Translation
Thou settest darkness, and it is night, In it doth every beast of the forest creep.
Psalm 104:20 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thou makest darkness - It is not the design of God that there should be either constant darkness or constant light. That man may labor, he gives him, by means of the sun, the light of the day; and that he may rest from his labor, and get his strength recruited, he gives him night, and comparative darkness. And as it would not be convenient for man and the wild beasts of the forest to collect their food at the same time, he has given the night to them as the proper time to procure their prey, and the day to rest in. When Man labors, They rest; when Man rests, They labor.
