1Praise the LORD! I 2will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, in the company of 3the upright, in the congregation.

The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are 10trustworthy;
they are 11established forever and ever, to be performed with 12faithfulness and uprightness.
He sent 13redemption to his people; he has 14commanded his covenant forever. 15Holy and awesome is his name!
16The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have 17a good understanding. His 18praise endures forever!
