1: Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with [my] whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and [in] the congregation. 2: The works of the LORD [are] great, sought out by all them that have pleasure in them. 3: His work [is] honorable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever. 4: He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD [is] gracious and full of compassion. 5: He hath given food to them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant. 6: He hath shown his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen. 7: The works of his hands [are] verity and judgment; all his commandments [are] sure. 8: They stand fast for ever and ever, [and are] done in truth and uprightness. 9: He sent redemption to his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend [is] his name. 10: The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do [his commandments]: his praise endureth for ever.
