[1] REJOICE in Jehovah, O ye righteous:

Praise is comely for the upright.

[2] Give thanks unto Jehovah with the harp:

Sing praises unto him with the psaltery of ten strings.

[3] Sing unto him a new song;

Play skilfully with a loud noise.

[4] For the word of Jehovah is right;

And all his work is done in faithfulness.

[5] He loveth righteousness and justice:

The earth is full of the lovingkindness of Jehovah.

[6] By the word of Jehovah were the heavens made,

And all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

[7] He gathereth the waters of the sea together as a heap:

He layeth up the deeps in storehouses.

[8] Let all the earth fear Jehovah:

Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.

[9] For he spake, and it was done;

He commanded, and it stood fast.

[10] Jehovah bringeth the counsel of the nations to nought;

He maketh the thoughts of the peoples to be of no effect.

[11] The counsel of Jehovah standeth fast for ever,

The thoughts of his heart to all generations.

[12] Blessed is the nation whose God is Jehovah,

The people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

[13] Jehovah looketh from heaven;

He beholdeth all the sons of men;

[14] From the place of his habitation he looketh forth

Upon all the inhabitants of the earth,

[15] He that fashioneth the hearts of them all,

That considereth all their works.

[16] There is no king saved by the〖Or, a great power.〗 multitude of a host:

A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.

[17] A horse is a vain thing for safety;

Neither doth he deliver any by his great power.

[18] Behold, the eye of Jehovah is upon them that fear him,

Upon them that hope〖Or, wait for.〗 in his lovingkindness;

[19] To deliver their soul from death,

And to keep them alive in famine.

[20] Our soul hath waited for Jehovah:

He is our help and our shield.

[21] For our heart shall rejoice in him,

Because we have trusted in his holy name.

[22] Let thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah, be upon us,

According as we have〖Or, wait for.〗 hoped in thee.
