I will wholeheartedly give thanks to Adonai
in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
2The deeds of Adonai are great,
greatly desired by all who enjoy them.
3His work is full of majesty and splendor,
and his righteousness continues forever.
4He has gained renown for his wonders.
Adonai is merciful and compassionate.
5He gives food to those who fear him.
He remembers his covenant forever.
6He shows his people how powerfully he works
by giving them the nations as their heritage.
7The works of his hands are truth and justice;
all his precepts can be trusted.
8They have been established forever and ever,
to be carried out truly and honestly.
9He sent redemption to his people
and decreed that his covenant should last forever.
His name is holy and fearsome —
10the first and foremost point of wisdom is the fear of Adonai;
all those living by it gain good common sense.
His praise stands forever.
