1: Exult, ye righteous, in Jehovah: praise is comely for the upright. 2: Give thanks unto Jehovah with the harp; sing psalms unto him with the ten-stringed lute. 3: Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud sound. 4: For the word of Jehovah is right, and all his work is in faithfulness. 5: He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the loving-kindness of Jehovah. 6: By the word of Jehovah were the heavens made, and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. 7: He gathereth the waters of the sea together as a heap; he layeth up the deeps in storehouses. 8: Let all the earth fear Jehovah; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 9: For he spoke, and it was [done]; he commanded, and it stood fast. 10: Jehovah frustrateth the counsel of the nations; he maketh the thoughts of the peoples of none effect. 11: The counsel of Jehovah standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart from generation to generation. 12: Blessed is the nation whose God is Jehovah, the people that he hath chosen for his inheritance! 13: Jehovah looketh from the heavens; he beholdeth all the sons of men: 14: From the place of his habitation he looketh forth upon all the inhabitants of the earth; 15: He who fashioneth the hearts of them all, who considereth all their works. 16: The king is not saved by the multitude of [his] forces; a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. 17: The horse is a vain thing for safety; neither doth he deliver by his great power. 18: Behold, the eye of Jehovah is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his loving-kindness, 19: To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. 20: Our soul waiteth for Jehovah: he is our help and our shield. 21: For in him shall our heart rejoice, because we have confided in his holy name. 22: Let thy loving-kindness, O Jehovah, be upon us, according as we have hoped in thee.
