1 Rejoice in the LORD, O righteous [ones;] praise is becoming for the upright.
2 Praise the LORD with lyre; sing to Him with a harp of ten strings.
3 Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully with shouts of joy.
4 For the Word of the LORD [is] right; and all His works [are] in truth.
5 [He] loves righteousness and judgment; the earth is full of the mercy 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 gathered the waters of the sea like a heap, setting the depths in storehouses.
8 Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the people of the world stand in awe of Him.
9 For He spoke, and it was [done]; He commanded, and it stood.
10 The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He breaks the plots of the people.
11 The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations.
12 Blessed [is] the nation whose God [is] the LORD; the people He has chosen for His inheritance.
13 The LORD looks down from Heaven; He beholds all the sons of mankind.
14 From His dwelling place He looks on all the people of the earth.
15 Together He forms their hearts; His understanding [is] to all their works.
16 The king is not saved by a great army; a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
17 A horse [is] a vain thing for safety; neither shall he deliver by his great strength.
18 Behold, the eye of the LORD [is] to those who fear Him, on those who hope in His mercy;
19 to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
20 Our soul waits for the LORD; He [is] our help and our shield.
21 For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we trust in His holy name.
22 Let Your mercy, O LORD, be on us, according as we hope in You.
