A praise of David. א [Aleph] 145  I will exalt you, O my God the King,+ I will praise your name forever and ever.+ ב [Beth] 2   All day long I will praise you;+ I will praise your name forever and ever.+ ג [Gimel] 3   Jehovah is great and most worthy of praise;+ His greatness is unsearchable.*+ ד [Daleth] 4   Generation after generation will praise your works;
They will tell about your mighty acts.+
ה [He] 5   Of the glorious splendor of your majesty they will speak+ And on your wonderful works I will meditate. ו [Waw] 6   They will speak about your awe-inspiring deeds,*
And I will declare your greatness.
ז [Zayin] 7   They will bubble over as they recall your abundant goodness,+ And they will shout joyfully because of your righteousness.+ ח [Heth] 8   Jehovah is compassionate* and merciful,+ Slow to anger and great in loyal love.+ ט [Teth] 9   Jehovah is good to all,+ And his mercy is evident in all his works. י [Yod] 10  All your works will glorify you, O Jehovah,+ And your loyal ones will praise you.+ כ [Kaph] 11  They will proclaim the glory of your kingship+ And speak about your mightiness,+ ל [Lamed] 12  To make known to men your mighty acts+ And the glorious splendor of your kingship.+ מ [Mem] 13  Your kingship is an eternal kingship,
And your dominion endures throughout all generations.+
ס [Samekh] 14  Jehovah supports all who are falling+ And raises up all who are bowed down.+ ע [Ayin] 15  All eyes look hopefully to you;
You give them their food in its season.+
פ [Pe] 16  You open your hand
And satisfy the desire of every living thing.+
צ [Tsade] 17  Jehovah is righteous in all his ways+ And loyal in all that he does.+ ק [Qoph] 18  Jehovah is near to all those calling on him,+ To all who call on him in truth.*+ ר [Resh] 19  He satisfies the desire of those who fear him;+ He hears their cry for help, and he rescues them.+ ש [Shin] 20  Jehovah guards all those who love him,+ But all the wicked he will annihilate.+ ת [Taw] 21  My mouth will declare the praise of Jehovah;+ Let every living thing* praise his holy name forever and ever.+
