New International Version
Of David. A psalm.
2 The Lord will extend your mighty scepter(D) from Zion,(E) saying,
“Rule(F) in the midst of your enemies!”
3 Your troops will be willing
on your day of battle.
Arrayed in holy splendor,(G)
your young men will come to you
like dew from the morning’s womb.[b](H)
5 The Lord is at your right hand[c];(L)
he will crush kings(M) on the day of his wrath.(N)
6 He will judge the nations,(O) heaping up the dead(P)
and crushing the rulers(Q) of the whole earth.
7 He will drink from a brook along the way,[d]
and so he will lift his head high.(R)
1 Praise the Lord.[f]
2 Great are the works(W) of the Lord;
they are pondered by all(X) who delight in them.
3 Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures(Y) forever.
4 He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and compassionate.(Z)
5 He provides food(AA) for those who fear him;(AB)
he remembers his covenant(AC) forever.
6 He has shown his people the power of his works,(AD)
giving them the lands of other nations.(AE)
7 The works of his hands(AF) are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy.(AG)
8 They are established for ever(AH) and ever,
enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.
9 He provided redemption(AI) for his people;
he ordained his covenant forever—
holy and awesome(AJ) is his name.
2 Their children(AS) will be mighty in the land;
the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches(AT) are in their houses,
and their righteousness endures(AU) forever.
4 Even in darkness light dawns(AV) for the upright,
for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.(AW)
5 Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely,(AX)
who conduct their affairs with justice.
6 Surely the righteous will never be shaken;(AY)
they will be remembered(AZ) forever.
7 They will have no fear of bad news;
their hearts are steadfast,(BA) trusting in the Lord.(BB)
8 Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear;(BC)
in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.(BD)
9 They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor,(BE)
their righteousness endures(BF) forever;
their horn[i] will be lifted(BG) high in honor.
Praise the Lord, you his servants;(BM)
praise the name of the Lord.
2 Let the name of the Lord be praised,(BN)
both now and forevermore.(BO)
3 From the rising of the sun(BP) to the place where it sets,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.
4 The Lord is exalted(BQ) over all the nations,
his glory above the heavens.(BR)
5 Who is like the Lord our God,(BS)
the One who sits enthroned(BT) on high,(BU)
6 who stoops down to look(BV)
on the heavens and the earth?
7 He raises the poor(BW) from the dust
and lifts the needy(BX) from the ash heap;
8 he seats them(BY) with princes,
with the princes of his people.
9 He settles the childless(BZ) woman in her home
as a happy mother of children.
Praise the Lord.
