How blessed is that strong person
    who places his trust in the Lord,
    and who has not acknowledged the proud
        nor resorted to lies.
Lord, my God,
    You have done great things:
        marvelous works and your thoughts toward us.
There is no one who compares to you!
    I will try to recite your actions,[a]
        even though there are too many to number.

You take no delight in sacrifices and offerings—
    you have prepared my ears to listen—[b]
        you require no burnt offerings or sacrifices for sin.
