1Shout for joy in יהוה, you righteous! Praise is fitting for the straight!
2Praise יהוה with the lyre; Sing to Him with an instrument of ten strings.
3Sing to Him a new song; Play sweetly with a shout of joy.
4For the Word of יהוה is straight, And all His works are in truth,
5Loving righteousness and right-ruling; The earth is filled with the loving-commitment of יהוה.
6By the Word of יהוה the heavens were made, And all their host by the Spirit of His mouth,
7Gathering the waters of the sea together as a heap; Laying up the deep in storehouses.
8Let all the earth fear יהוה; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
9For He spoke, and it came to be; He commanded, and it stood fast.
10יהוה brings the counsel of the nations to naught; He thwarts the plans of the peoples.
11The counsel of יהוה stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations.
12Blessed is the nation whose Elohim is יהוה, The people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance.
13יהוה has looked from the heavens; He has seen all the sons of men.
14He looked from His dwelling place On all the inhabitants of the earth –
15He who fashions the hearts of them all, He who understands all their works.
16The sovereign is not saved by the multitude of an army; A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
17A horse is a vain means of safety; Neither does it rescue any by its great power.
18See, the eye of יהוה is on those fearing Him, On those waiting for His loving-commitment,
19To deliver their being from death, And to keep them alive during scarcity of food.
20Our being has longed for יהוה; Our help and our shield is He.
21For our heart does rejoice in Him, For we have put our trust in His set-apart Name.
22Let Your loving-commitment, O יהוה, be upon us, Even as we wait for You.
