145:1* I will extol thee, my God, O King, and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
145:2Every day will I bless thee, and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
145:3Great is Jehovah, and exceedingly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
145:4One generation shall laud thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.
145:5I will speak of the glorious splendour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.
145:6And they shall tell of the might of thy terrible acts; and thy great deeds will I declare.
145:7They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
145:8Jehovah is gracious and merciful; slow to anger, and of great loving-kindness.
145:9Jehovah is good to all; and his tender mercies are over all his works.
145:10All thy works shall praise thee, Jehovah, and thy saints shall bless thee.
145:11They shall tell of the glory of thy kingdom, and speak of thy power;
145:12To make known to the children of men his mighty acts, and the glorious splendour of his kingdom.
145:13Thy kingdom is a kingdom of all ages, and thy dominion is throughout all generations.
145:14Jehovah upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all that are bowed down.
145:15The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their food in its season.
145:16Thou openest thy hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
145:17Jehovah is righteous in all his ways, and kind in all his works.
145:18Jehovah is nigh unto all that call upon him, unto all that call upon him in truth.
145:19He fulfilleth the desire of them that fear him; he heareth their cry, and saveth them.
145:20Jehovah keepeth all that love him, and all the wicked will he destroy.
145:21My mouth shall speak the praise of Jehovah; and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
146:1Hallelujah! Praise Jehovah, O my soul.
146:2As long as I live will I praise Jehovah; I will sing psalms unto my God while I have my being.
146:3Put not confidence in nobles, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
146:4His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his purposes perish.
146:5Blessed is he who hath the ùGod of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in Jehovah his God,
146:6Who made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is therein; who keepeth truth for ever;
146:7Who executeth judgment for the oppressed, who giveth bread to the hungry. Jehovah looseth the prisoners;
146:8Jehovah openeth the eyes of the blind; Jehovah raiseth up them that are bowed down; Jehovah loveth the righteous;
146:10Jehovah will reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, from generation to generation. Halleluiah!
147:2Jehovah doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth the outcasts of Israel.
147:3He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
147:4He counteth the number of the stars; he giveth names to them all.
147:5Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
147:6Jehovah lifteth up the meek; he abaseth the wicked to the earth.
147:8Who covereth the heavens with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains;
147:9Who giveth to the cattle their food, to the young ravens which cry.
147:10He delighteth not in the strength of the horse, he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man;
147:11Jehovah taketh pleasure in those that fear him, in those that hope in his loving-kindness.
147:12Laud Jehovah, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.
147:13For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee;
147:14He maketh peace in thy borders; he satisfieth thee with the finest of the wheat.
147:15He sendeth forth his oracles to the earth: his word runneth very swiftly.
147:16He giveth snow like wool, scattereth the hoar frost like ashes;
147:17He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?
147:18He sendeth his word, and melteth them; he causeth his wind to blow -- the waters flow.
147:19He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.
147:20He hath not dealt thus with any nation; and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Hallelujah!
