Psalms - Chapter 145

1. I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.

2. Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

3. Great [is] the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness [is] unsearchable.

4. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.

5. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.

6. And [men] shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.

7. They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.

8. The LORD [is] gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.

9. The LORD [is] good to all: and his tender mercies [are] over all his works.

10. All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee.

11. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;

12. To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.

13. Thy kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion [endureth] throughout all generations.

14. The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all [those that be] bowed down.

15. The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.

16. Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

17. The LORD [is] righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.

18. The LORD [is] nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

19. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.

20. The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.

21. My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
