The Lord's Care for His People
1Praise ye the Lord.
I will praise the Lord with my whole heart,
in the assembly of the upright,
and in the congregation.
2The works of the Lord are great,
sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
3His work is honorable and glorious:
and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered:
the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.
5He hath given meat unto them that fear him:
he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
6He hath showed his people the power of his works,
that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
7The works of his hands are verity and judgment;
all his commandments are sure.
8They stand fast for ever and ever,
and are done in truth and uprightness.
9He sent redemption unto his people:
he hath commanded his covenant for ever:
holy and reverend is his name.
10 # Job 28.28; Prov 1.7; 9.10. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom:
a good understanding have all they that do his commandments:
his praise endureth for ever.
