New International Version
You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it.

Darby Bible Translation
Thou hast visited the earth, thou hast watered it; thou greatly enrichest it: the river of God is full of water; thou providest their corn, when thou hast so prepared it:

I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit.
He provides rain for the earth; he sends water on the countryside.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.
You gave abundant showers, O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance.
Your people settled in it, and from your bounty, God, you provided for the poor.
