“1) Praise ye the Lord! For it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant, and praise is comely.
2) The Lord does build up Jerusalem; He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.
3) He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds.
4) He tells the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names.
5) Great is our Lord, and of great power; His understanding is infinite.
6) The Lord lifts up the meek; He casts the wicked down to the ground.
7) Sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God,
8) who covers the heavens with clouds, who prepares rain for the earth, who makes grass to grow upon the mountains.
9) He gives to the beast his food and to the young ravens which cry.
10) He delights not in the strength of the horse; He takes not pleasure in the legs of a man.
11) The Lord takes pleasure in them that fear Him, in those that hope in His mercy.
12) Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion!
13) For He hath strengthened the bars of your gates; He has blessed your children within you.
14) He makes peace in your borders, and fills you with the finest of the wheat.
15) He sends forth His commandment upon the earth; His word runs very swiftly.
16) He gives snow like wool; He scatters the hoarfrost like ashes;
17) He casts forth His ice like morsels; who can stand before His cold?
18) He sends out His word, and melts them; He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow.
19) He shows His word unto Jacob, His statutes and His judgments unto Israel.
20) He has not dealt so with any nation; and as for His judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the Lord!”
“1) O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon His name: make known His deeds among the people.
2) Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him: talk ye of all His wondrous works.
3) Glory ye in His holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
4) Seek the LORD, and His strength: seek His face evermore.
5) Remember His marvellous works that He has done; His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth;”
“21) “Produce your cause,” says the Lord; “bring forth your strong reasons,” says the King of Jacob.
22) “Let them bring them forth and show us what shall happen; let them show the former things, what they be, that we may consider them and know the latter end of them; or declare us things to come.
23) Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods: yea, do good or do evil, that we may be dismayed and behold it together.
24) Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought; an abomination is he that chooses you.
28) For I beheld, and there was no man, even among them; and there was no counselor that, when I asked of them, could answer a word.
29) Behold, they are all vanity! Their works are nothing; their molten images are wind and confusion.”
“21) Have ye not known? Have ye not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?
22) It is He that sits upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers, who stretches out the heavens as a curtain and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in,
23) Who brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth as vanity.
24) Yea, they shall not be planted, yea, they shall not be sown; yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth. And He shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.
25) “To whom then will ye liken Me, or shall I be equal?” says the Holy One.
26) Lift up your eyes on high, and behold Who has created these things, Who brings out their host by number. He calls them all by names by the greatness of His might, for He is strong in power; not one fails.”
“4) For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither has the eye seen, O God, beside You, what He has prepared for him that waits for Him.
5) You meet him that rejoices and works righteousness, those that remember You in Your ways: behold, You are wroth; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved.
6) But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
7) And there is none that calls upon Your name, that stirs up himself to take hold of You: for You have hid Your face from us, and have consumed us, because of our iniquities.
8) But now, O LORD, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our Potter; and we all are the work of Your hand.
9) Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech You, we are all Your people.”
“1) Praise ye the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul!
2) While I live will I praise the Lord; I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
3) Put not your trust in princes, nor in a son of man in whom there is no help.
4) His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
5) Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God,
6) who made heaven and earth, the sea and all that therein is, who keepeth truth for ever;
7) who executeth judgment for the oppressed, who giveth food to the hungry; the Lord looseth the prisoners.
8) The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind; the Lord raiseth them that are bowed down; the Lord loveth the righteous.
9) The Lord preserveth the strangers, He relieveth the fatherless and the widow; but the way of the wicked He turneth upside down.
10) The Lord shall reign for ever, even Thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the Lord!”
