Praise Yahweh, my soul. While I live, I will praise Yahweh. Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in Yahweh, his God: who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them.
Yahweh, you have searched me, and know me. You know my sitting down and my rising up. Search me, God, and know my heart. See if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.
I wait for Yahweh. My soul waits. I hope in his word. My soul longs for the Lord more than watchmen long for the morning. Israel, hope in Yahweh, for with Yahweh there is loving kindness. He will redeem Israel from all their sins.
Have mercy on us, Yahweh, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt. Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scoffing of those who are at ease, with the contempt of the proud.
Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, for his loving kindness endures forever. Let Israel now say that his loving kindness endures forever. Let those who fear Yahweh say that his loving kindness endures forever.
I love Yahweh, because he listens to my voice, and my cries for mercy. Because he has turned his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.
Yahweh is gracious and merciful. He has given food to those who fear him. He always remembers his covenant. He has shown his people the power of his works. The works of his hands are truth and justice.
Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, for his loving kindness endures forever. Let the redeemed by Yahweh say so, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the adversary.
Yahweh covers himself with light as with a garment. He stretches out the heavens like a curtain. He lays the beams of his rooms in the waters. He makes the clouds his chariot. He laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be moved forever.
Yahweh will deliver you from the snare of the fowler. Under his wings you will take refuge. His faithfulness is your shield and rampart. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it will not come near you.
