A Psalm of Praise. David’s.
145 I will extol thee, my God, O King, And will bless thy Name, to times age-abiding and beyond:
2 Every day will I bless thee, And praise thy Name to times age-abiding and beyond.
3 Great is Yahweh—and worthy to be heartily praised, And his greatness is unsearchable.
4 Generation unto generation shall celebrate thy works, And thy mighty deeds shall they tell:
5 The splendour of the glory of thy majesty shall they speak, And thy wonders will I utter.
6 And the might of thy terrible acts shall men speak, And as for thy greatness I will recount it.
7 The memory of thy great goodness shall men pour forth, And thy righteousness shall they shout aloud.
8 Gracious and compassionate is Yahweh,—Slow to anger and of great lovingkindness.
9 Good is Yahweh to all, And his tender compassions are over all his works.
10 All thy works, O Yahweh, will give thanks unto thee,—And thy men of lovingkindness will bless thee:
11 The glory of thy kingdom will they tell,—And thy power will they speak.
12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty deeds, And the splendid glory of his kingdom.
13 Thy kingdom is a kingdom of all ages,—And thy dominion is over generation after generation.
14 Yahweh is ready to uphold all who are falling, And to raise all who are laid prostrate.
15 The eyes of all for thee do wait, And thou givest them their food in its season.
16 Thou openest thy hand And fillest every living thing with gladness.
17 Righteous is Yahweh in all his ways, And kind in all his works.
18 Near is Yahweh to all who call upon him,—To all them who call upon him in faithfulness.
19 The desire of them who revere him will he fulfil, And their cry will he hear and will save them.
20 Yahweh preserveth all who love him, But all the lawless will he destroy.
21 The praise of Yahweh my mouth shall speak, That all flesh may bless his holy Name, Unto times age-abiding and beyond.
