14The Lord uupholds all who are falling
and vraises up all who are bowed down.
15The eyes of all wlook to you,
and you give them their food in due season.
16You xopen your hand;
you ysatisfy the desire of every living thing.
17The Lord is zrighteous in all his ways

19He adfulfills the desire of those who fear him;

20The Lord afpreserves all who love him,
but all the wicked he will destroy.
21 My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,
and aglet all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.
