Book of Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Eman, Ethan, sons of Core, compiled by Esdras)

145:1¤ I will extol thee, O God my king: and I will bless thy name for ever; yea, for ever and ever.

145:2Every day will I bless thee: and I will praise thy name for ever; yea, for ever and ever.

145:3Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: and of his greatness there is no end.

145:4Generation and generation shall praise thy works: and they shall declare thy power.

145:5They shall speak of the magnificence of the glory of thy holiness: and shall tell thy wondrous works.

145:6And they shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and shall declare thy greatness.

145:7They shall publish the memory of the abundance of thy sweetness: and shall rejoice in thy justice.

145:8The Lord is gracious and merciful: patient and plenteous in mercy.

145:9The Lord is sweet to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.

145:10Let all thy works, O lord, praise thee: and let thy saints bless thee.

145:11They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom: and shall tell of thy power:

145:12To make thy might known to the sons of men: and the glory of the magnificence of thy kingdom.

145:13Thy kingdom is a kingdom of all ages: and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations. The Lord is faithful in all his words: and holy in all his works.

145:14The Lord lifteth up all that fall: and setteth up all that are cast down.

145:15The eyes of all hope in thee, O Lord: and thou givest them meat in due season.

145:16Thou openest thy hand, and fillest with blessing every living creature.

145:17The Lord is just in all his ways: and holy in all his works.

145:18The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him: to all that call upon him in truth.

145:19He will do the will of them that fear him: and he will hear their prayer, and save them.

145:20The Lord keepeth all them that love him; but all the wicked he will destroy.

145:21My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord: and let all flesh bless his holy name forever; yea, for ever and ever.

146:1¤ Praise the Lord, O my soul,

146:2in my life I will praise the Lord: I will sing to my God as long as I shall be. Put not your trust in princes:

146:3In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation.

146:4His spirit shall go forth, and he shall return into his earth: in that day all their thoughts shall perish.

146:5Blessed is he who hath the God of Jacob for his helper, whose hope is in the Lord his God:

146:6Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all things that are in them.

146:7Who keepeth truth for ever: who executeth judgment for them that suffer wrong: who giveth food to the hungry. The Lord looseth them that are fettered:

146:8The Lord enlighteneth the blind. The Lord lifteth up them that are cast down: the Lord loveth the just.

146:9The Lord keepeth the strangers, he will support the fatherless and the widow: and the ways of sinners he will destroy.

146:10The Lord shall reign for ever: thy God, O Sion, unto generation and generation.

147:1¤ Praise ye the Lord, because psalm is good: to our God be joyful and comely praise.

147:2The Lord buildeth up Jerusalem: he will gather together the dispersed of Israel.

147:3Who healeth the broken of heart, and bindeth up their bruises.

147:4Who telleth the number of the stars: and calleth them all by their names.

147:5Great is our Lord, and great is his power: and of his wisdom there is no number.

147:6The Lord lifteth up the meek, and bringeth the wicked down even to the ground.

147:7Sing ye to the Lord with praise: sing to our God upon the harp.

147:8Who covereth the heaven with clouds, and prepareth rain for the earth. Who maketh grass to grow on the mountains, and herbs for the service of men.

147:9Who giveth to beasts their food: and to the young ravens that call upon him.

147:10He shall not delight in the strength of the horse: nor take pleasure in the legs of a man.

147:11The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him: and in them that hope in his mercy.

147:12Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem: praise thy God, O Sion.

147:13Because he hath strengthened the bolts of thy gates, he hath blessed thy children within thee.

147:14Who hath placed peace in thy borders: and filleth thee with the fat of corn.

147:15Who sendeth forth his speech to the earth: his word runneth swiftly.

147:16Who giveth snow like wool: scattereth mists like ashes.

147:17He sendeth his crystal like morsels: who shall stand before the face of his cold?

147:18He shall send out his word, and shall melt them: his wind shall blow, and the waters shall run.

147:19Who declareth his word to Jacob: his justices and his judgments to Israel.

147:20He hath not done in like manner to every nation: and his judgments he hath not made manifest to them. Alleluia.
