1 Praise the LORD. [^1] I will extol the LORD with all my heart ¶ in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
2 Great are the works of the LORD; ¶ they are pondered by all who delight in them.
3 Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever.
4 He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and compassionate.
5 He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever.
6 He has shown his people the power of his works, ¶ giving them the lands of other nations.
7 The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy.
8 They are established for ever and ever, enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.
9 He provided redemption for his people; he ordained his covenant forever — ¶ holy and awesome is his name.
10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; ¶ all who follow his precepts have good understanding. ¶ To him belongs eternal praise.
