King James 2000
Praise to the LORD of Creation
1Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous: for praise is fitting for the upright.
2Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.
3Sing unto him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise.
4For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.
5He loves righteousness and justice: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.
6By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
7He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap: he lays up the depth in storehouses.
8Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
9For he spoke, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.
10The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing: he makes the devices of the people of none effect.
11The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance.
13The LORD looks from heaven; he beholds all the sons of men.
14From the place of his habitation he looks upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
15He fashions their hearts alike; he considers all their works.
16There is no king saved by the multitude of a host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
17A horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
18Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
19To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
20Our soul waits for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
21For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
22Let your mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in you.
