Psalm 145

A psalm of praise, by David.

1I will extol you, my God, O king!

I will praise your name continually!

2Every day I will praise you!

I will praise your name continually!

3The Lord is great and certainly worthy of praise!

No one can fathom his greatness!

4One generation will praise your deeds to another,

and tell about your mighty acts!

5I will focus on your honor and majestic splendor,

and your amazing deeds!

6They will proclaim the power of your awesome acts!

I will declare your great deeds!

7They will talk about the fame of your great kindness,

and sing about your justice.

8The Lord is merciful and compassionate;

he is patient and demonstrates great loyal love.

9The Lord is good to all,

and has compassion on all he has made.

10All he has made will give thanks to the Lord.

Your loyal followers will praise you.

11They will proclaim the splendor of your kingdom;

they will tell about your power,

12so that mankind might acknowledge your mighty acts,

and the majestic splendor of your kingdom.

13Your kingdom is an eternal kingdom,

and your dominion endures through all generations.

14The Lord supports all who fall,

and lifts up all who are bent over.

15Everything looks to you in anticipation,

and you provide them with food on a regular basis.

16You open your hand,

and fill every living thing with the food they desire.

17The Lord is just in all his actions,

and exhibits love in all he does.

18The Lord is near all who cry out to him,

all who cry out to him sincerely.

19He satisfies the desire of his loyal followers;

he hears their cry for help and delivers them.

20The Lord protects those who love him,

but he destroys all the wicked.

21My mouth will praise the Lord.

Let all who live praise his holy name forever!

Psalm 144
