| ||REJOICE in Jehovah, O ye righteous:|
Praise is comely for the upright.
| ||Give thanks unto Jehovah with the harp:|
Sing praises unto him with the psaltery of ten strings.
| ||Sing unto him a new song;|
Play skilfully with a loud noise.
| ||For the word of Jehovah is right;|
And all his work is done in faithfulness.
| ||He loveth righteousness and justice:|
The earth is full of the lovingkindness of Jehovah.
| ||By the word of Jehovah were the heavens made,|
And all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
| ||He gathereth the waters of the sea together as a heap:|
He layeth up the deeps in storehouses.
| ||Let all the earth fear Jehovah:|
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
| ||For he spake, and it was done;|
He commanded, and it stood fast.
| ||Jehovah bringeth the counsel of the nations to nought;|
He maketh the thoughts of the peoples to be of no effect.
| ||The counsel of Jehovah standeth fast for ever,|
The thoughts of his heart to all generations.
| ||Blessed is the nation whose God is Jehovah,|
The people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
| ||Jehovah looketh from heaven;|
He beholdeth all the sons of men;
| ||From the place of his habitation he looketh forth|
Upon all the inhabitants of the earth,
| ||He that fashioneth the hearts of them all,|
That considereth all their works.
| ||There is no king saved by the 1 multitude of a host:|
A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
| ||A horse is a vain thing for safety;|
Neither doth he deliver any by his great power.
| ||Behold, the eye of Jehovah is upon them that fear him,|
Upon them that hope 2 in his lovingkindness;
| ||To deliver their soul from death,|
And to keep them alive in famine.
| ||Our soul hath waited for Jehovah:|
He is our help and our shield.
| ||For our heart shall rejoice in him,|
Because we have trusted in his holy name.
| ||Let thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah, be upon us,|
According as we have 2 hoped in thee.
