New International Version
The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing.
King James Bible
The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.
Darby Bible Translation
The meadows are clothed with flocks, and the valleys are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, yea, they sing.
World English Bible
The pastures are covered with flocks. The valleys also are clothed with grain. They shout for joy! They also sing. For the Chief Musician. A song. A Psalm.
Young's Literal Translation
Clothed have lambs the flock, And valleys are covered with corn, They shout -- yea, they sing!
Psalm 65:13 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The pastures are clothed with flocks - Cattle are seen in every plain, avenue, and vista, feeding abundantly; and the valleys are clothed, and wave with the richest harvests; and transports of joy are heard every where in the cheerful songs of the peasantry, the singing of the birds, the neighing of the horse, the lowing of the ox, and the bleating of the sheep.

What an inimitable description! And yet the nervous Hebrew is not half expressed, even by the amended translation and paraphrase above.

There is an intended contrast in these two clauses more pointed and emphatic in the original than in our Bible, between man's impotence and God's power in the face of the fact of sin.

Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy;
Our barns will be filled with every kind of provision. Our sheep will increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields;
He will also send you rain for the seed you sow in the ground, and the food that comes from the land will be rich and plentiful. In that day your cattle will graze in broad meadows.
Sing for joy, you heavens, for the LORD has done this; shout aloud, you earth beneath. Burst into song, you mountains, you forests and all your trees, for the LORD has redeemed Jacob, he displays his glory in Israel.
You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
