Book V
Jehovah Extolled for His Goodness
A Psalm of praise; of David.
[1]  I WILL extol thee, my God, O King;
And I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
[2]  Every day will I bless thee;
And I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
[3]  Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised;
And his greatness is unsearchable.
[4]  One generation shall laud thy works to another,
And shall declare thy mighty acts.
[5]  Of the glorious majesty of thine honor,
And of thy wondrous works, will I meditate.
[6]  And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts;
And I will declare thy greatness.
[7]  They shall utter the memory of thy great goodness,
And shall sing of thy righteousness.
[8]  Jehovah is gracious, and merciful;
Slow to anger, and of great lovingkindness.
[9]  Jehovah is good to all;
And his tender mercies are over all his works.
[10]  All thy works shall give thanks unto thee, O Jehovah;
And thy saints shall bless thee.
[11]  They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom,
And talk of thy power;
[12]  To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts,
And the glory of the majesty of his kingdom.
[13]  Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
[14]  Jehovah upholdeth all that fall,
And raiseth up all those that are bowed down.
[15]  The eyes of all wait for thee;
And thou givest them their food in due season.
[16]  Thou openest thy hand,
And satisfiest 1 the desire of every living thing.
[17]  Jehovah is righteous in all his ways,
And gracious in all his works.
[18]  Jehovah is nigh unto all them that call upon him,
To all that call upon him in truth.
[19]  He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him;
He also will hear their cry, and will save them.
[20]  Jehovah preserveth all them that love him;
But all the wicked will he destroy.
[21]  My mouth shall speak the praise of Jehovah;
And let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
Note 1. Or, satisfiest every living thing with favor. [back]
