1Shout for joy in the LORD, O you righteous! 2Praise befits the upright.
Give thanks to the LORD with the 3lyre; make melody to him with 4the harp of 5ten strings!
Sing to him 6a new song; play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.
For the word of the LORD is upright, and all his work is done in 7faithfulness.
He 8loves righteousness and justice; 9the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD.
By 10the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and by 11the breath of his mouth all 12their host.
He gathers the waters of the sea as 13a heap; he 14puts the deeps in storehouses.
Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him!
For 15he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.
The LORD 16brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; he frustrates the plans of the peoples.
17The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the plans of his heart to all generations.
18Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has 19chosen as his heritage!
The LORD 20looks down from heaven; he sees all the children of man;
from 21where he sits enthroned he 22looks out on all the inhabitants of the earth,
he who fashions the hearts of them all and observes all their deeds.
23The king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.
24The war horse is a false hope for salvation, and by its great might it cannot rescue.
Behold, 25the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, 26on those who hope in his steadfast love,
that he may 27deliver their soul from death and keep them alive in 28famine.
Our soul 29waits for the LORD; he is our 30help and 31our shield.
For our heart is 32glad in him, because we 33trust in his holy name.
Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in you.
