(32-1) <A psalm for David.> Rejoice in the Lord, O ye just: praise becometh the upright.
(32-2) Give praise to the Lord on the harp; sing to him with the psaltery, the instrument of ten strings.
(32-3) Sing to him a new canticle, sing well unto him with a loud noise.
(32-4) For the word of the Lord is right, and all his works are done with faithfulness.
(32-5) He loveth mercy and judgment; the earth is full of the mercy of the Lord.
(32-6) By the word of the Lord the heavens were established; and all the power of them by the spirit of his mouth:
(32-7) Gathering together the waters of the sea, as in a vessel; laying up the depths in storehouses.
(32-8) Let all the earth fear the Lord, and let all the inhabitants of the world be in awe of him.
(32-9) For he spoke and they were made: he commanded and they were created.
(32-10) The Lord bringeth to nought the counsels of nations; and he rejecteth the devices of people, and casteth away the counsels of princes.
(32-11) But the counsel of the Lord standeth for ever: the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
(32-12) Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord: the people whom he hath chosen for his inheritance.
(32-13) The Lord hath looked from heaven: he hath beheld all the sons of men.
(32-14) From his habitation which he hath prepared, he hath looked upon all that dwell on the earth.
(32-15) He who hath made the hearts of every one of them: who understandeth all their works.
(32-16) The king is not saved by a great army: nor shall the giant be saved by his own great strength.
(32-17) Vain is the horse for safety: neither shall he be saved by the abundance of his strength.
(32-18) Behold the eyes of the Lord are on them that fear him: and on them that hope in his mercy.
(32-19) To deliver their souls from death; and feed them in famine.
(32-20) Our soul waiteth for the Lord: for he is our helper and protector.
(32-21) For in him our heart shall rejoice: and in his holy name we have trusted.
(32-22) Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, as we have hooped in thee.
