Psalms 145

A Song of praise. Of David.

1 Let me give glory to you, O God, my King; and blessing to your name for ever and ever. 2Every day will I give you blessing, praising your name for ever and ever. 3Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; his power may never be searched out. 4One generation after another will give praise to your great acts, and make clear the operation of your strength. 5My thoughts will be of the honour and glory of your rule, and of the wonder of your works. 6Men will be talking of the power and fear of your acts; I will give word of your glory. 7Their sayings will be full of the memory of all your mercy, and they will make songs of your righteousness. 8The Lord is full of grace and pity; not quickly angry, but great in mercy. 9The Lord is good to all men; and his mercies are over all his works. 10All the works of your hands give praise to you, O Lord; and your saints give you blessing. 11Their words will be of the glory of your kingdom, and their talk of your strength; 12So that the sons of men may have knowledge of his acts of power, and of the great glory of his kingdom. 13Your kingdom is an eternal kingdom, and your rule is through all generations. 14The Lord is the support of all who are crushed, and the lifter up of all who are bent down. 15The eyes of all men are waiting for you; and you give them their food in its time. 16By the opening of your hand, every living thing has its desire in full measure. 17The Lord is upright in all his ways, and kind in all his works. 18The Lord is near all those who give honour to his name; even to all who give honour to him with true hearts. 19To his worshippers, he will give their desire; their cry comes to his ears, and he gives them salvation. 20The Lord will keep all his worshippers from danger; but he will send destruction on all sinners. 21My mouth will give praise to the Lord; let all flesh be blessing his holy name for ever and ever.
