Psalms 145 to 150 : American Standard Version
Psalm 145A Psalm of praise; of David.
1I will extol thee, my God, O King; And I will bless
thy name for ever and ever. 2Every day will I bless
thee; And I will praise thy name for ever and ever. 3Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised; And his greatness is
unsearchable. 4One generation shall laud thy works to
another, And shall declare thy mighty acts. 5Of the
glorious majesty of thine honor, And of thy wondrous works, will I
meditate. 6And men shall speak of the might of thy
terrible acts; And I will declare thy greatness. 7They
shall utter the memory of thy great goodness, And shall sing of thy
righteousness. 8Jehovah is gracious, and merciful; Slow
to anger, and of great lovingkindness. 9Jehovah is good
to all; And his tender mercies are over all his works. 10All thy works shall give thanks unto thee, O Jehovah; And thy saints
shall bless thee. 11They shall speak of the glory of thy
kingdom, And talk of thy power; 12To make known to the
sons of men his mighty acts, And the glory of the majesty of his
kingdom. 13Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And
thy dominion endureth throughout all generations. 14Jehovah upholdeth all that fall, And raiseth up all those that are
bowed down. 15The eyes of all wait for thee; And thou
givest them their food in due season. 16Thou openest thy
hand, And satisfiest the desire of every living thing. 17Jehovah is righteous in all his ways, And gracious in all his works.
18Jehovah is nigh unto all them that call upon him, To
all that call upon him in truth. 19He will fulfil the
desire of them that fear him; He also will hear their cry and will
save them. 20Jehovah preserveth all them that love him;
But all the wicked will he destroy. 21My mouth shall
speak the praise of Jehovah; And let all flesh bless his holy name
for ever and ever.
1Praise ye Jehovah. Praise Jehovah, O my soul.
2While I live will I praise Jehovah: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being. 3Put not your trust in princes, Nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. 4His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; In that very day his thoughts perish. 5Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in Jehovah his God: 6Who made heaven and earth, The sea, and all that in them is; Who keepeth truth for ever; 7Who executeth justice for the oppressed; Who giveth food to the hungry. Jehovah looseth the prisoners; 8Jehovah openeth the eyes of the blind; Jehovah raiseth up them that are bowed down; Jehovah loveth the righteous; 9Jehovah preserveth the sojourners; He upholdeth the fatherless and widow; But the way of the wicked he turneth upside down. 10Jehovah will reign for ever, Thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye Jehovah.
1Praise ye Jehovah; For it is good to sing praises unto our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is comely.
2Jehovah doth build up Jerusalem; He gathereth together the outcasts of Israel. 3He healeth the broken in heart, And bindeth up their wounds. 4He counteth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names. 5Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. 6Jehovah upholdeth the meek: He bringeth the wicked down to the ground. 7Sing unto Jehovah with thanksgiving; Sing praises upon the harp unto our God, 8Who covereth the heavens with clouds, Who prepareth rain for the earth, Who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains. 9He giveth to the beast his food, And to the young ravens which cry. 10He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: He taketh no pleasure in the legs of a man. 11Jehovah taketh pleasure in them that fear him, In those that hope in his lovingkindness. 12Praise Jehovah, O Jerusalem; Praise thy God, O Zion. 13For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; He hath blessed thy children within thee. 14He maketh peace in thy borders; He filleth thee with the finest of the wheat. 15He sendeth out his commandment upon earth; His word runneth very swiftly. 16He giveth snow like wool; He scattereth the hoar-frost like ashes. 17He casteth forth his ice like morsels: Who can stand before his cold? 18He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: He causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow. 19He showeth his word unto Jacob, His statutes and his ordinances unto Israel. 20He hath not dealt so with any nation; And as for his ordinances, they have not known them. Praise ye Jehovah.
1Praise ye Jehovah. Praise ye Jehovah from the heavens: Praise him in the heights.
2Praise ye him, all his angels: Praise ye him, all his host. 3Praise ye him, sun and moon: Praise him, all ye stars of light. 4Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, And ye waters that are above the heavens. 5Let them praise the name of Jehovah; For he commanded, and they were created. 6He hath also established them for ever and ever: He hath made a decree which shall not pass away. 7Praise Jehovah from the earth, Ye sea-monsters, and all deeps. 8Fire and hail, snow and vapor; Stormy wind, fulfilling his word; 9Mountains and all hills; Fruitful trees and all cedars; 10Beasts and all cattle; Creeping things and flying birds; 11Kings of the earth and all peoples; Princes and all judges of the earth; 12Both young men and virgins; Old men and children: 13Let them praise the name of Jehovah; For his name alone is exalted; His glory is above the earth and the heavens. 14And he hath lifted up the horn of his people, The praise of all his saints; Even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye Jehovah.
1Praise ye Jehovah. Sing unto Jehovah a new song, And his praise in the assembly of the saints.
2Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3Let them praise his name in the dance: Let them sing praises unto him with timbrel and harp. 4For Jehovah taketh pleasure in his people: He will beautify the meek with salvation. 5Let the saints exult in glory: Let them sing for joy upon their beds. 6Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand; 7To execute vengeance upon the nations, And punishments upon the peoples; 8To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; 9To execute upon them the judgment written: This honor have all his saints. Praise ye Jehovah.
1Praise ye Jehovah. Praise God in his sanctuary: Praise him in the firmament of his power.
2Praise him for his mighty acts: Praise him according to his excellent greatness. 3Praise him with trumpet sound: Praise him with psaltery and harp. 4Praise him with timbrel and dance: Praise him with stringed instruments and pipe. 5Praise him with loud cymbals: Praise him with high sounding cymbals. 6Let everything that hath breath praise Jehovah. Praise ye Jehovah.
