|Jehovah Extolled for His Goodness|
|A Psalm of praise; of David.|
| ||I WILL extol thee, my God, O King;|
And I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
| ||Every day will I bless thee;|
And I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
| ||Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised;|
And his greatness is unsearchable.
| ||One generation shall laud thy works to another,|
And shall declare thy mighty acts.
| ||Of the glorious majesty of thine honor,|
And of thy wondrous works, will I meditate.
| ||And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts;|
And I will declare thy greatness.
| ||They shall utter the memory of thy great goodness,|
And shall sing of thy righteousness.
| ||Jehovah is gracious, and merciful;|
Slow to anger, and of great lovingkindness.
| ||Jehovah is good to all;|
And his tender mercies are over all his works.
| ||All thy works shall give thanks unto thee, O Jehovah;|
And thy saints shall bless thee.
| ||They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom,|
And talk of thy power;
| ||To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts,|
And the glory of the majesty of his kingdom.
| ||Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,|
And thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
| ||Jehovah upholdeth all that fall,|
And raiseth up all those that are bowed down.
| ||The eyes of all wait for thee;|
And thou givest them their food in due season.
| ||Thou openest thy hand,|
And satisfiest 1 the desire of every living thing.
| ||Jehovah is righteous in all his ways,|
And gracious in all his works.
| ||Jehovah is nigh unto all them that call upon him,|
To all that call upon him in truth.
| ||He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him;|
He also will hear their cry, and will save them.
| ||Jehovah preserveth all them that love him;|
But all the wicked will he destroy.
| ||My mouth shall speak the praise of Jehovah;|
And let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
|Note 1. Or, satisfiest every living thing with favor. [back]|
