Psalm 145 [A Psalm] of praise. Of David. 145 1I WILL extol You, my God, O King; and I will bless Your name forever and ever [with grateful, affectionate praise]. 2Every day [with its new reasons] will I bless You [affectionately and gratefully praise You]; yes, I will praise Your name forever and ever. 3Great is the Lord and highly to be praised; and His greatness is [so vast and deep as to be] unsearchable. 4One generation shall laud Your works to another and shall declare Your mighty acts. 5On the glorious splendor of Your majesty and on Your wondrous works I will meditate. 6Men shall speak of the might of Your tremendous and terrible acts, and I will declare Your greatness. 7They shall pour forth [like a fountain] the fame of Your great and abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of Your rightness and justice. 8The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and abounding in mercy and loving-kindness. 9The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works [the entirety of things created]. 10All Your works shall praise You, O Lord, and Your loving ones shall bless You [affectionately and gratefully shall Your saints confess and praise You]! 11They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom and talk of Your power, 12To make known to the sons of men God’s mighty deeds and the glorious majesty of His kingdom. 13Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations. 14The Lord upholds all those [of His own] who are falling and raises up all those who are bowed down. 15The eyes of all wait for You [looking, watching, and expecting] and You give them their food in due season. 16You open Your hand and satisfy every living thing with favor. 17The Lord is [rigidly] righteous in all His ways and gracious and merciful in all His works. 18The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him sincerely and in truth. 19He will fulfill the desires of those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him; He also will hear their cry and will save them. 20The Lord preserves all those who love Him, but all the wicked will He destroy. 21My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord; and let all flesh bless (affectionately and gratefully praise) His holy name forever and ever.
