11Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteousones ; Praise is 2becoming to the upright.
2Givethanks to the LORD with the 3lyre ; Singpraises to Him with a 4harp of tenstrings.
3Sing to Him a 5newsong ; Playskillfully with 6a shout of joy.
For the word of the LORD7is upright, And all His work is done 8in faithfulness.
He 9lovesrighteousness and justice ; The 10earth is full of the lovingkindness of the LORD.
By the 11word of the LORD the heavens were made, And 12by the breath of His mouth13all their host.
He gathers the 14waters of the sea together aas a heap ; He lays up the deeps in storehouses.
Let 15all the earthfear the LORD ; Let all the inhabitants of the world16stand in awe of Him.
For 17He spoke, and it was done ; He commanded, and it bstood fast.
The LORD18nullifies the counsel of the nations ; He frustrates the plans of the peoples.
The 19counsel of the LORDstandsforever, The 20plans of His heart from generation to generation.
12Blessed is the 21nationwhoseGod is the LORD, The people whom He has 22chosen for His own inheritance.
The LORD23looks from heaven ; He 24seesall the sons of men ;
From 25His dwellingplace He looks out On all the inhabitants of the earth,
He who 26fashionscthe hearts of them all, He who 27understandsall their works.
1628The king is not saved by a mightyarmy ; A warrior is not delivered by greatstrength.
A 29horse is a falsehope for victory ; Nor does it deliver anyone by its greatstrength.
18Behold, 30the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who d31hope for His lovingkindness,
To 32deliver their soul from death And to keep them alive33in famine.
Our soul34waits for the LORD ; He is our 35help and our shield.
For our 36heartrejoices in Him, Because we trust in His holyname.
Let Your lovingkindness, O LORD, be upon us, According as we have ehoped in You.
