1 Praise the Lord.[b]
2 Great are the works(E) of the Lord;
they are pondered by all(F) who delight in them.
3 Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures(G) forever.
4 He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and compassionate.(H)
5 He provides food(I) for those who fear him;(J)
he remembers his covenant(K) forever.
6 He has shown his people the power of his works,(L)
giving them the lands of other nations.(M)
7 The works of his hands(N) are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy.(O)
8 They are established for ever(P) and ever,
enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.
9 He provided redemption(Q) for his people;
he ordained his covenant forever—
holy and awesome(R) is his name.
2 Their children(AA) will be mighty in the land;
the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches(AB) are in their houses,
and their righteousness endures(AC) forever.
4 Even in darkness light dawns(AD) for the upright,
for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.(AE)
5 Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely,(AF)
who conduct their affairs with justice.
6 Surely the righteous will never be shaken;(AG)
they will be remembered(AH) forever.
7 They will have no fear of bad news;
their hearts are steadfast,(AI) trusting in the Lord.(AJ)
8 Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear;(AK)
in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.(AL)
9 They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor,(AM)
their righteousness endures(AN) forever;
their horn[e] will be lifted(AO) high in honor.
Praise the Lord, you his servants;(AU)
praise the name of the Lord.
2 Let the name of the Lord be praised,(AV)
both now and forevermore.(AW)
3 From the rising of the sun(AX) to the place where it sets,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.
4 The Lord is exalted(AY) over all the nations,
his glory above the heavens.(AZ)
5 Who is like the Lord our God,(BA)
the One who sits enthroned(BB) on high,(BC)
6 who stoops down to look(BD)
on the heavens and the earth?
7 He raises the poor(BE) from the dust
and lifts the needy(BF) from the ash heap;
8 he seats them(BG) with princes,
with the princes of his people.
9 He settles the childless(BH) woman in her home
as a happy mother of children.
Praise the Lord.
