1: Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: [for] praise is comely for the upright. 2: Praise the LORD with harp: sing to him with the psaltery [and] an instrument of ten strings. 3: Sing to him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise. 4: For the word of the LORD [is] right; and all his works [are done] in truth. 5: He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD. 6: By the word of the LORD 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 depth in store-houses. 8: Let all the earth fear the LORD: 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: The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to naught: he maketh the devices of the people of no effect. 11: The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. 12: Blessed [is] the nation whose God [is] the LORD; [and] the people [whom] he hath chosen for his own inheritance. 13: The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. 14: From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. 15: He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works. 16: There is no king saved by the multitude of a host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. 17: A horse [is] a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver [any] by his great strength. 18: Behold, the eye of the LORD [is] upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; 19: To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. 20: Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he [is] our help and our shield. 21: For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. 22: Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.
