Psalms 145:1-21

A praise,* of David. א [ʼA′leph] 145  I will exalt you, O my God the King,+ And I will bless your name to time indefinite, even forever.+ ב [Behth]   All day long I will bless you,+ And I will praise your name to time indefinite, even forever.+ ג [Gi′mel]   Jehovah is great and very much to be praised,+ And his greatness is unsearchable.+ ד [Da′leth]   Generation after generation will commend your works,+ And about your mighty acts they will tell.+ ה [Heʼ]   The glorious splendor of your dignity+ And the matters of your wonderful works I will make my concern.+ ו [Waw]   And they will talk about the strength of your own fear-inspiring things;+ And as for your greatness, I will declare it.+ ז [Za′yin]   With the mention of the abundance of your goodness they will bubble over,+ And [because of] your righteousness they will cry out joyfully.+ ח [Chehth]   Jehovah is gracious and merciful,+ Slow to anger and great in loving-kindness.+ ט [Tehth]   Jehovah is good to all,+ And his mercies are over all his works.+ י [Yohdh] 10  All your works will laud you, O Jehovah,+ And your loyal ones will bless you.+ כ [Kaph] 11  About the glory of your kingship they will talk,+ And about your mightiness they will speak,+ ל [La′medh] 12  To make known to the sons of men* his mighty acts+ And the glory of the splendor of his kingship.+ מ [Mem] 13  Your kingship is a kingship for all times indefinite,+ And your dominion is throughout all successive generations.+ ס [Sa′mekh]* 14  Jehovah is giving support to all who are falling,+ And is raising up all who are bowed down.+ ע [ʽA′yin] 15  To you the eyes of all look hopefully,+ And you are giving them their food in its season.+ פ [Peʼ] 16  You are opening your hand+ And satisfying the desire of every living thing.+ צ [Tsa·dheh′] 17  Jehovah is righteous in all his ways+ And loyal in all his works.+ ק [Qohph] 18  Jehovah is near to all those calling upon him,+ To all those who call upon him in trueness.*+ ר [Rehsh] 19  The desire of those fearing him he will perform,+ And their cry for help he will hear, and he will save them.+ ש [Shin] 20  Jehovah is guarding all those loving him,+ But all the wicked ones he will annihilate.+ ת [Taw] 21  The praise of Jehovah my mouth will speak;+ And let all flesh bless his holy name to time indefinite, even forever.+
