Psalms 145
A song of David.
1I will tell of your greatness, my God and King.
I will praise your name forever and ever.
2I will praise you every day.
I will praise your name forever and ever.
3The Lord is great and deserves all our praise!
No one can fully understand his greatness!
4Each generation will praise you
and tell the next generation about the great things you do.
5Your majesty and glory are wonderful.
I will tell about your miracles.
6People will tell about the amazing things you do,
and I will tell everyone how great you are.
7They will talk about your goodness
and sing about your justice.
8The Lord is kind and merciful,
patient and full of love.
9The Lord is good to everyone.
He shows his mercy to everything he made.
10Lord, all you have made will give thanks to you.
Your loyal followers will praise you.
11They will tell how great your kingdom is.
They will tell how great you are.
12So others will learn about the mighty things you do,
about the glory of your kingdom—how marvelous it is!
13Your kingdom will never end,
and you will rule forever.
The Lord can be trusted in all that he says.
He is loyal in all that he does.#145:13 The Lord … he does This is found in the ancient Greek and Syriac versions and a Hebrew scroll from Qumran, but not in the standard Hebrew text.
14The Lord lifts up people who have fallen.
He helps those who are in trouble.
15All living things look to you for their food,
and you give them their food at the right time.
16You open your hands
and give every living thing all that it needs.
17Everything the Lord does is good.
Everything he does shows how loyal he is.
18The Lord is near to everyone
who sincerely calls to him for help.
19He listens to his followers and does what they want.
He answers their prayers and saves them.
20The Lord protects everyone who loves him,
but he destroys all who do evil.
21I will praise the Lord!
Let everyone praise his holy name forever and ever!
