Praise the LORD with the harp;1 make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.23
Sing to him a new song;3 play skillfully, and shout for joy.44
For the word of the LORD is right5 and true;6 he is faithful7 in all he does.
The LORD loves righteousness and justice;8 the earth is full of his unfailing love.96
By the word10 of the LORD were the heavens made,11 their starry host12 by the breath of his mouth.
He gathers the waters13 of the sea into jarsa;14 he puts the deep into storehouses.
Let all the earth fear the LORD;15 let all the people of the world16 revere him.179
For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded,18 and it stood firm.
The LORD foils19 the plans20 of the nations;21 he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
But the plans of the LORD stand firm22 forever, the purposes23 of his heart through all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,24 the people he chose25 for his inheritance.26
