I will declare your name to my brothers; in the congregation1 I will praise you.223
You who fear the LORD, praise him!3 All you descendants of Jacob, honor him!4 Revere him,5 all you descendants of Israel!
For he has not despised6 or disdained the suffering of the afflicted one;7 he has not hidden his face8 from him but has listened to his cry for help.925
From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly;10 before those who fear youa will I fulfill my vows.1126
The poor will eat12 and be satisfied; they who seek the LORD will praise him--13 may your hearts live forever!
All the ends of the earth14 will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him,1528
for dominion belongs to the LORD 16 and he rules over the nations.
All the rich17 of the earth will feast and worship;18 all who go down to the dust19 will kneel before him-- those who cannot keep themselves alive.2030
Posterity21 will serve him; future generations22 will be told about the Lord.
They will proclaim his righteousness23 to a people yet unborn24-- for he has done it.25
