145:1 A Psalm of praise; of David. I will extol Thee, my God, O King; and I will bless Thy name for ever and ever.

145:2 Every day will I bless Thee; and I will praise Thy name for ever and ever.

145:3 Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable.

145:4 One generation shall laud Thy works to another, and shall declare Thy mighty acts.

145:5 The glorious splendour of Thy majesty, and Thy wondrous works, will I rehearse.

145:6 And men shall speak of the might of Thy tremendous acts; and I will tell of Thy greatness.

145:7 They shall utter the fame of Thy great goodness, and shall sing of Thy righteousness.

145:8 the Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.

145:9 the Lord is good to all; and His tender mercies are over all His works.

145:10 All Thy works shall praise Thee, O the Lord; and Thy saints shall bless Thee.

145:11 They shall speak of the glory of Thy kingdom, and talk of Thy might;

145:12 To make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, and the glory of the majesty of His kingdom.

145:13 Thy kingdom is a kingdom for all ages, and Thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.

145:14 the Lord upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that are bowed down.

145:15 The eyes of all wait for Thee, and Thou givest them their food in due season.

145:16 Thou openest Thy hand, and satisfiest every living thing with favour.

145:17 the Lord is righteous in all His ways, and gracious in all His works.

145:18 the Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth.

145:19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear Him; He also will hear their cry, and will save them.

145:20 the Lord preserveth all them that love Him; but all the wicked will He destroy.

145:21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord; and let all flesh bless His holy name for ever and ever.
