23 You who (A)fear the Lord, praise him!
    All you offspring of Jacob, (B)glorify him,
    and stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!
24 For he has not despised or abhorred
    the affliction of (C)the afflicted,
and he has not (D)hidden his face from him,
    but has heard, when he (E)cried to him.

25 From you comes my praise in the great (F)congregation;
    my (G)vows I will (H)perform before those who fear him.
26 (I)The afflicted[a] shall (J)eat and be satisfied;
    those who seek him shall praise the Lord!
    May your hearts (K)live forever!

27 All (L)the ends of the earth shall remember
    and turn to the Lord,
and all (M)the families of the nations
    shall worship before you.
28 For (N)kingship belongs to the Lord,
    and he rules over the nations.

29 All (O)the prosperous of the earth eat and worship;
    before him shall (P)bow all who go down to the dust,
    even the one who could not (Q)keep himself alive.
30 Posterity shall serve him;
    it shall be told of the Lord to the coming (R)generation;
31 they shall (S)come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet (T)unborn,
    that he has done it.
