1
Reioyce in the Lord, O yee righteous: for prayse is comely for the vpright.
2
Praise the Lord with harp: sing vnto him with the Psalterie, and an instrument of ten strings.
3
Sing vnto him a new song;
play skilfully with a loud noise.
4
For the word of the Lord is right: and all his workes are done in trueth.
5
Hee loueth righteousnesse and iudgement: the earth is ful of the goodnesse of the Lord.
6
By the word of the Lord were the heauens made: and all the host of them, by the breath of his mouth.
7
He gathereth the waters of the sea together, as an heape: he layeth vp the depth in storehouses.
8
Let all the earth feare the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
9
For he spake, and it was done: he commanded, and it stood fast.
10
The Lord bringeth the counsell of the heathen to nought: he maketh the deuices of the people, of none effect.
11
The counsaile of the Lord standeth for euer, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
12
Blessed is the nation, whose God is the Lord: and the people, whom he hath chosen for his owne inheritance.
13
The Lord looketh from heauen: he beholdeth all the sonnes of men.
14
From the place of his habitation, he looketh vpon all the inhabitants of the earth.
15
He fashioneth their hearts alike: he considereth all their workes.
16
There is no king saued by the multitude of an hoste: a mightie man is not deliuered by much strength.
17
An horse is a vaine thing for safetie: neither shall he deliuer any by his great strength.
18
Behold, the eye of the Lord is vpon them that feare him: vpon them that hope in his mercy:
19
To deliuer their soule from death, and to keepe them aliue in famine.
20
Our soule waiteth for the Lord: he is our helpe, and our shield.
21
For our heart shall reioyce in him: because we haue trusted in his holy name.
22
Let thy mercy (O Lord) be vpon vs: according as we hope in thee.
