(144-1) <Praise, for David himself.> I will extol thee, O God my king: and I will bless thy name for ever; yea, for ever and ever.
(144-2) Every day will I bless thee: and I will praise thy name for ever; yea, for ever and ever.
(144-3) Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: and of his greatness there is no end.
(144-4) Generation and generation shall praise thy works: and they shall declare thy power.
(144-5) They shall speak of the magnificence of the glory of thy holiness: and shall tell thy wondrous works.
(144-6) And they shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and shall declare thy greatness.
(144-7) They shall publish the memory of the abundance of thy sweetness: and shall rejoice in thy justice.
(144-8) The Lord is gracious and merciful: patient and plenteous in mercy.
(144-9) The Lord is sweet to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
(144-10) Let all thy works, O lord, praise thee: and let thy saints bless thee.
(144-11) They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom: and shall tell of thy power:
(144-12) To make thy might known to the sons of men: and the glory of the magnificence of thy kingdom.
(144-13) Thy kingdom is a kingdom of all ages: and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations. The Lord is faithful in all his words: and holy in all his works.
(144-14) The Lord lifteth up all that fall: and setteth up all that are cast down.
(144-15) The eyes of all hope in thee, O Lord: and thou givest them meat in due season.
(144-16) Thou openest thy hand, and fillest with blessing every living creature.
(144-17) The Lord is just in all his ways: and holy in all his works.
(144-18) The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him: to all that call upon him in truth.
(144-19) He will do the will of them that fear him: and he will hear their prayer, and save them.
(144-20) The Lord keepeth all them that love him; but all the wicked he will destroy.
(144-21) My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord: and let all flesh bless his holy name forever; yea, for ever and ever.
