And his greatness is unsearchable.
ד [Da′leth]4Generation after generation will commend your works,
And about your mighty acts they will tell.
ה [He’]5The glorious splendor of your dignity
And the matters of your wonderful works I will make my concern.
ו [Waw]6And they will talk about the strength of your own fear‐inspiring things;
And as for your greatness, I will declare it.

And [because of] your righteousness they will cry out joyfully.

Slow to anger and great in loving‐kindness.

And his mercies are over all his works.
י [Yohdh]10All your works will laud you, O Jehovah,
And your loyal ones will bless you.
כ [Kaph]11About the glory of your kingship they will talk,
And about your mightiness they will speak,
ל [La′medh]12To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts
And the glory of the splendor of his kingship.
מ [Mem]13Your kingship is a kingship for all times indefinite,
And your dominion is throughout all successive generations.
ס [Sa′mekh]14Jehovah is giving support to all who are falling,
And is raising up all who are bowed down.
ע [‛A′yin]15To you the eyes of all look hopefully,
And you are giving them their food in its season.
פ [Pe’]16You are opening your hand
And satisfying the desire of every living thing.

And loyal in all his works.
ק [Qohph]18Jehovah is near to all those calling upon him,
To all those who call upon him in trueness.
ר [Rehsh]19The desire of those fearing him he will perform,
And their cry for help he will hear, and he will save them.
ש [Shin]20Jehovah is guarding all those loving him,
But all the wicked ones he will annihilate.
ת [Taw]21The praise of Jehovah my mouth will speak;
And let all flesh bless his holy name to time indefinite, even forever.
