1 Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: [for] praise is comely for the upright.
2 Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery [and] an instrument of ten strings.
3 Sing vnto him a newe song: sing cheerefully with a loude voyce.
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 worde of the Lorde were the heauens made, & all the hoste of them by the breath of his mouth.
7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.
8 Let all the earth feare the Lord: let al them that dwell in the world, feare him.
9 For he spake, and it was done: he commanded, and it stood.
10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
11 The counsell of the Lord shall stand for euer, and the thoughts of his heart throughout all ages.
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 habitation of his dwelling he beholdeth all them that dwell in the earth.
15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.
16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
17 A horse is a vaine helpe, and shall not deliuer 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 deliuer their soules from death, and to preserue them in famine.
20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he [is] our help and our shield.
21 Surely our heart shall reioyce in him, because we trusted in his holy Name.
22 Let thy mercie, O Lord, be vpon vs, as we trust in thee.
