Psalm 145 World English Bible (WEB)

A praise psalm by David.[a]

145 I will exalt you, my God, the King.
    I will praise your name forever and ever.
Every day I will praise you.
    I will extol your name forever and ever.
Great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised!
    His greatness is unsearchable.
One generation will commend your works to another,
    and will declare your mighty acts.
Of the glorious majesty of your honor,
    of your wondrous works, I will meditate.
Men will speak of the might of your awesome acts.
    I will declare your greatness.
They will utter the memory of your great goodness,
    and will sing of your righteousness.
Yahweh is gracious, merciful,
    slow to anger, and of great loving kindness.
Yahweh is good to all.
    His tender mercies are over all his works.
10 All your works will give thanks to you, Yahweh.
    Your saints will extol you.
11 They will speak of the glory of your kingdom,
    and talk about your power;
12 to make known to the sons of men his mighty acts,
    the glory of the majesty of his kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.
    Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
Yahweh is faithful in all his words,
    and loving in all his deeds.[b]
14 Yahweh upholds all who fall,
    and raises up all those who are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all wait for you.
    You give them their food in due season.
16 You open your hand,
    and satisfy the desire of every living thing.
17 Yahweh is righteous in all his ways,
    and gracious in all his works.
18 Yahweh is near to all those who call on him,
    to all who call on him in truth.
19 He will fulfill the desire of those who fear him.
    He also will hear their cry, and will save them.
20 Yahweh preserves all those who love him,
    but all the wicked he will destroy.
21 My mouth will speak the praise of Yahweh.
    Let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.

They shall [c]eagerly utter the memory of Your abundant goodness
And will shout joyfully of Your righteousness.

And Your godly ones shall bless You.

And raises up all who are bowed down.
