Praise to the Creator and Preserver.1 a Sing for joy in the Lord, O you righteous ones;
Praise is b becoming to the upright.
2Give thanks to the Lord with the c lyre;
Sing praises to Him with a d harp of ten strings.
3Sing to Him a e new song;
Play skillfully with f a shout of joy.
4For the word of the Lord g is upright,
And all His work is done h in faithfulness.
5He i loves righteousness and justice;
The j earth is full of the lovingkindness of the Lord.
6By the k word of the Lord the heavens were made,
And l by the breath of His mouth m all their host.
7He gathers the n waters of the sea together ▼
▼ Some versions read in a water skin; i.e. containeras a heap;
He lays up the deeps in storehouses.
8Let p all the earth fear the Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world q stand in awe of Him.
9For r He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it ▼
▼ Or stood forthstood fast.
10The Lord t nullifies the counsel of the nations;
He frustrates the plans of the peoples.
11The u counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The v plans of His heart from generation to generation.
12Blessed is the w nation whose God is the Lord,
The people whom He has x chosen for His own inheritance.
13The Lord y looks from heaven;
He z sees all the sons of men;
14From aa His dwelling place He looks out
On all the inhabitants of the earth,
15He who ab fashions ▼
▼ Or their heart togetherthe hearts of them all,
He who ad understands all their works.
16 ae The king is not saved by a mighty army;
A warrior is not delivered by great strength.
17A af horse is a false hope for victory;
Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength.
18Behold ag the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who ▼
▼ Or wait, ai hope for His lovingkindness,
19To aj deliver their soul from death
And to keep them alive ak in famine.
20Our soul al waits for the Lord;
He is our am help and our shield.
21For our an heart rejoices in Him,
Because we trust in His holy name.
22Let Your lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon us,
According as we have ▼
▼ Or waited forhoped in You.
