You who fear the LORD, praise him!1 All you descendants of Jacob, honor him!2 Revere him,3 all you descendants of Israel!
For he has not despised4 or disdained the suffering of the afflicted one;5 he has not hidden his face6 from him but has listened to his cry for help.725
From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly;8 before those who fear youa will I fulfill my vows.926
The poor will eat10 and be satisfied; they who seek the LORD will praise him--11 may your hearts live forever!
All the ends of the earth12 will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him,1328
for dominion belongs to the LORD 14 and he rules over the nations.
All the rich15 of the earth will feast and worship;16 all who go down to the dust17 will kneel before him-- those who cannot keep themselves alive.1830
Posterity19 will serve him; future generations20 will be told about the Lord.
They will proclaim his righteousness21 to a people yet unborn22-- for he has done it.23
