1 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous;*
it is fitting for the just to be thankful.
2 Praise the Lord with the harp;*
sing praises unto him with the ten-stringed lute.
3 Sing unto him a new song;*
make skillful melody and cry aloud with joy.
4 For the word of the Lord is true,*
and all his works are faithful.
5 He loves righteousness and true judgment;*
the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made,*
and all the hosts of them by the breath of his mouth.
7 He gathers the waters of the sea together, as in a heap,*
and lays up the deep, as in a treasure house.
8 Let all the earth fear the Lord;*
stand in awe of him, all you that dwell in the world.
9 For he spoke, and it was done;*
he commanded and it stood fast.
10 The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to naught;*
he makes the devices of the peoples to be of no effect, and casts out the counsels of princes.
11 The counsel of the Lord shall endure for ever,*
and the thoughts of his heart from generation to generation.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,*
and blessed are the people he has chosen for himself to be his inheritance.
13 The Lord looks down from heaven and beholds all the children of men;*
from the habitation of his dwelling he considers all those who dwell on the earth.
14 He fashions all the hearts of them*
and understands all their works.
15 There is no king who can be saved by a mighty host;*
neither is any mighty man delivered by great strength.
16 A horse is considered a vain hope to save a man;*
neither shall it deliver anyone by its great strength.
17 Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon those who fear him,*
and upon those who put their trust in his mercy,
18 To deliver their soul from death,*
and to feed them in the time of famine.
19 Our soul has patiently waited for the Lord,*
for he is our help and our shield.
20 Our heart shall rejoice in him,*
because we have hoped in his holy Name.
21 Let your merciful kindness, O Lord, be upon us,*
as we have put our trust in you.
