Psalm 145
New American Standard Bible►► 

The LORD Exalted for His Goodness.

A Psalm of Praise, of David.

1I will exalt You, my God, the King,

And I will bless Your name forever and ever.

2Every day I will bless You,

And I will praise Your name forever and ever.

3Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised;

And His greatness is unsearchable.

4One generation will praise Your works to another,

And will declare Your mighty acts.

5On the glorious [a]splendor of Your majesty

And on Your wonderful works, I will meditate.

6People will speak of the [b]power of Your awesome acts,

And I will tell of Your greatness.

7They will burst forth [c]in speaking of Your abundant goodness,

And will shout joyfully of Your righteousness.

8The LORD is gracious and compassionate;

Slow to anger and great in mercy.

9The LORD is good to all,

And His mercies are over all His works.

10All Your works will give thanks to You, LORD,

And Your godly ones will bless You.

11They will speak of the glory of Your kingdom,

And talk of Your might,

12To make known to the sons of mankind [d]Your mighty acts,

And the glory of the majesty of [e]Your kingdom.

13Your kingdom is [f]an everlasting kingdom,

And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.

[g]The LORD is faithful in His words,

And holy in all His works.

14The LORD supports all who fall,

And raises up all who are bowed down.

15The eyes of all [h]look to You,

And You give them their food in due time.

16You open Your hand

And satisfy the desire of every living thing.

17The LORD is righteous in all His ways,

And kind in all His works.

18The LORD is near to all who call on Him,

To all who call on Him in truth.

19He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him;

He will also hear their cry for help and save them.

20The LORD watches over all who love Him,

But He will destroy all the wicked.

21My mouth will speak the praise of the LORD,

And all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.

[b] 6 Or strength
[c] 7 Lit the mention of
[d] 12 Lit His
[e] 12 Lit His
[f] 13 Lit a kingdom of all ages
