1Praise ye the Lord. I will give thanks unto the Lord with my whole heart, in the council 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 honour and majesty: 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 shewed his people the power of his works, in giving them the heritage of the nations. 7The works of his hands are truth and judgment; all his precepts are sure. 8They are established for ever and ever, they are done in truth and uprightness. 9He hath sent redemption unto his people; he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name. 10The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all they that do thereafter: his praise endureth for ever.
