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.

145:10All 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.

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 God 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;

146:9Jehovah preserveth the strangers; he lifteth up the fatherless and the widow; but the way of the wicked doth he subvert.

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.

147:7Sing unto Jehovah with thanksgiving; sing psalms upon the harp unto our God:

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!
