1Praise the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
2Great are the works of the Lord,
studied by all who have pleasure in them.
3Full of honor and majesty is his work,
and his righteousness endures for ever.
4He has caused his wonderful works to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and merciful.
5He provides food for those who fear him;
he is ever mindful of his covenant.
6He has shown his people the power of his works,
in giving them the heritage of the nations.
7The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy,
8they are established for ever and ever,
to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.
9He sent redemption to his people;
he has commanded his covenant for ever.
Holy and terrible is his name!
10The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
a good understanding have all those who practice it.
His praise endures for ever!
