Psalm 121

[1]I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: From whence shall my help come? [2]My help [cometh] from Jehovah, Who made heaven and earth. [3]He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber. [4]Behold, he that keepeth Israel Will neither slumber nor sleep. [5]Jehovah is thy keeper: Jehovah is thy shade upon thy right hand. [6]The sun shall not smite thee by day, Nor the moon by night. [7]Jehovah will keep thee from all evil; He will keep thy soul. [8]Jehovah will keep thy going out and thy coming in From this time forth and for evermore.

Psalm 122

[1]I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go unto the house of Jehovah. [2]Our feet are standing Within thy gates, O Jerusalem, [3]Jerusalem, that art builded As a city that is compact together; [4]Whither the tribes go up, even the tribes of Jehovah, [For] an ordinance for Israel, To give thanks unto the name of Jehovah. [5]For there are set thrones for judgment, The thrones of the house of David. [6]Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: They shall prosper that love thee. [7]Peace be within thy walls, And prosperity within thy palaces. [8]For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. [9]For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God I will seek thy good.

Psalm 123

[1]Unto thee do I lift up mine eyes, O thou that sittest in the heavens. [2]Behold, as the eyes of servants [look] unto the hand of their master, As the eyes of a maid unto the hand of her mistress; So our eyes [look] unto Jehovah our God, Until he have mercy upon us. [3]Have mercy upon us, O Jehovah, have mercy upon us; For we are exceedingly filled with contempt. [4]Our soul is exceedingly filled With the scoffing of those that are at ease, And with the contempt of the proud.

Psalm 124

[1]If it had not been Jehovah who was on our side, Let Israel now say, [2]If it had not been Jehovah who was on our side, When men rose up against us; [3]Then they had swallowed us up alive, When their wrath was kindled against us; [4]Then the waters had overwhelmed us, The stream had gone over our soul; [5]Then the proud waters had gone over our soul. [6]Blessed be Jehovah, Who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth. [7]Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: The snare is broken, and we are escaped. [8]Our help is in the name of Jehovah, Who made heaven and earth.

Psalm 125

[1]They that trust in Jehovah Are as mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abideth for ever. [2]As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, So Jehovah is round about his people From this time forth and for evermore. [3]For the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; That the righteous put not forth their hands unto iniquity. [4]Do good, O Jehovah, unto those that are good, And to them that are upright in their hearts. [5]But as for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, Jehovah will lead them forth with the workers of iniquity. Peace be upon Israel.

Psalm 126

[1]When Jehovah brought back those that returned to Zion, We were like unto them that dream. [2]Then was our mouth filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing: Then said they among the nations, Jehovah hath done great things for them. [3]Jehovah hath done great things for us, [Whereof] we are glad. [4]Turn again our captivity, O Jehovah, As the streams in the South. [5]They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. [6]He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing seed for sowing, Shall doubtless come again with joy, bringing his sheaves [with him].

Psalm 127

[1]Except Jehovah build the house, They labor in vain that build it: Except Jehovah keep the city, The watchman waketh but in vain. [2]It is vain for you to rise up early, To take rest late, To eat the bread of toil; [For] so he giveth unto his beloved sleep. [3]Lo, children are a heritage of Jehovah; [And] the fruit of the womb is [his] reward. [4]As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, So are the children of youth. [5]Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: They shall not be put to shame, When they speak with their enemies in the gate.

Psalm 128

[1]Blessed is every one that feareth Jehovah, That walketh in his ways. [2]For thou shalt eat the labor of thy hands: Happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. [3]Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine, In the innermost parts of thy house; Thy children like olive plants, Round about thy table. [4]Behold, thus shall the man be blessed That feareth Jehovah. [5]Jehovah bless thee out of Zion: And see thou the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. [6]Yea, see thou thy children's children. Peace be upon Israel.

Psalm 129

[1]Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth up, Let Israel now say, [2]Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth up: Yet they have not prevailed against me. [3]The plowers plowed upon my back; They made long their furrows. [4]Jehovah is righteous: He hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked. [5]Let them be put to shame and turned backward, All they that hate Zion. [6]Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, Which withereth before it groweth up; [7]Wherewith the reaper filleth not his hand, Nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom. [8]Neither do they that go by say, The blessing of Jehovah be upon you; We bless you in the name of Jehovah.

Psalm 130

[1]Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Jehovah. [2]Lord, hear my voice: Let thine ears be attentive To the voice of my supplications. [3]If thou, Jehovah, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? [4]But there is forgiveness with thee, That thou mayest be feared. [5]I wait for Jehovah, my soul doth wait, And in his word do I hope. [6]My soul [waiteth] for the Lord More than watchmen [wait] for the morning; [Yea, more than] watchmen for the morning. [7]O Israel, hope in Jehovah; For with Jehovah there is lovingkindness, And with him is plenteous redemption. [8]And he will redeem Israel From all his iniquities.

Psalm 131

[1]Jehovah, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty; Neither do I exercise myself in great matters, Or in things too wonderful for me. [2]Surely I have stilled and quieted my soul; Like a weaned child with his mother, Like a weaned child is my soul within me. [3]O Israel, hope in Jehovah From this time forth and for evermore.

Psalm 132

[1]Jehovah, remember for David All his affliction; [2]How he sware unto Jehovah, And vowed unto the Mighty One of Jacob: [3]Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, Nor go up into my bed; [4]I will not give sleep to mine eyes, Or slumber to mine eyelids; [5]Until I find out a place for Jehovah, A tabernacle for the Mighty One of Jacob. [6]Lo, we heard of it in Ephrathah: We found it in the field of the wood. [7]We will go into his tabernacles; We will worship at his footstool. [8]Arise, O Jehovah, into thy resting-place; Thou, and the ark of thy strength. [9]Let thy priest be clothed with righteousness; And let thy saints shout for joy. [10]For thy servant David's sake Turn not away the face of thine anointed. [11]Jehovah hath sworn unto David in truth; He will not turn from it: Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne. [12]If thy children will keep my covenant And my testimony that I shall teach them, Their children also shall sit upon thy throne for evermore. [13]For Jehovah hath chosen Zion; He hath desired it for his habitation. [14]This is my resting-place for ever: Here will I dwell; for I have desired it. [15]I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread. [16]Her priests also will I clothe with salvation; And her saints shall shout aloud for joy. [17]There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed. [18]His enemies will I clothe with shame; But upon himself shall his crown flourish.

Psalm 133

[1]Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity! [2]It is like the precious oil upon the head, That ran down upon the beard, Even Aaron's beard; That came down upon the skirt of his garments; [3]Like the dew of Hermon, That cometh down upon the mountains of Zion: For there Jehovah commanded the blessing, Even life for evermore.

Psalm 134

[1]Behold, bless ye Jehovah, all ye servants of Jehovah, That by night stand in the house of Jehovah. [2]Lift up your hands to the sanctuary, And bless ye Jehovah. [3]Jehovah bless thee out of Zion; Even he that made heaven and earth.

Psalm 135

[1]Praise ye Jehovah. Praise ye the name of Jehovah; Praise [him], O ye servants of Jehovah, [2]Ye that stand in the house of Jehovah, In the courts of the house of our God. [3]Praise ye Jehovah; for Jehovah is good: Sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant. [4]For Jehovah hath chosen Jacob unto himself, [And] Israel for his own possession. [5]For I know that Jehovah is great, And that our Lord is above all gods. [6]Whatsoever Jehovah pleased, that hath he done, In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps; [7]Who causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; Who maketh lightnings for the rain; Who bringeth forth the wind out of his treasuries; [8]Who smote the first-born of Egypt, Both of man and beast; [9]Who sent signs and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, Upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants; [10]Who smote many nations, And slew mighty kings, [11]Sihon king of the Amorites, And Og king of Bashan, And all the kingdoms of Canaan, [12]And gave their land for a heritage, A heritage unto Israel his people. [13]Thy name, O Jehovah, [endureth] for ever; Thy memorial [name], O Jehovah, throughout all generations. [14]For Jehovah will judge his people, And repent himself concerning his servants. [15]The idols of the nations are silver and gold, The work of men's hands. [16]They have mouths, but they speak not; Eyes have they, but they see not; [17]They have ears, but they hear not; Neither is there any breath in their mouths. [18]They that make them shall be like unto them; Yea, every one that trusteth in them. [19]O house of Israel, bless ye Jehovah: O house of Aaron, bless ye Jehovah: [20]O house of Levi, bless ye Jehovah: Ye that fear Jehovah, bless ye Jehovah. [21]Blessed be Jehovah out of Zion, Who dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye Jehovah.

Psalm 136

[1]Oh give thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever. [2]Oh give thanks unto the God of gods; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever. [3]Oh give thanks unto the Lord of lords; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: [4]To him who alone doeth great wonders; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: [5]To him that by understanding made the heavens; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: [6]To him that spread forth the earth above the waters; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: [7]To him that made great lights; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: [8]The sun to rule by day; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; [9]The moon and stars to rule by night; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: [10]To him that smote Egypt in their first-born; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; [11]And brought out Israel from among them; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; [12]With a strong hand, and with an outstretched arm; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: [13]To him that divided the Red Sea in sunder; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; [14]And made Israel to pass through the midst of it; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; [15]But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red Sea; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: [16]To him that led his people through the wilderness; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: [17]To him that smote great kings; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; [18]And slew famous kings; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: [19]Sihon king of the Amorites; For his lovingkindness [endureth] forever; [20]And Og king of Bashan; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; [21]And gave their land for a heritage; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; [22]Even a heritage unto Israel his servant; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: [23]Who remembered us in our low estate; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; [24]And hath delivered us from our adversaries; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: [25]Who giveth food to all flesh; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever. [26]Oh give thanks unto the God of heaven; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever.

Psalm 137

[1]By the rivers of Babylon, There we sat down, yea, we wept, When we remembered Zion. [2]Upon the willows in the midst thereof We hanged up our harps. [3]For there they that led us captive required of us songs, And they that wasted us [required of us] mirth, [saying], Sing us one of the songs of Zion. [4]How shall we sing Jehovah's song In a foreign land? [5]If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, Let my right hand forget [her skill]. [6]Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, If I remember thee not; If I prefer not Jerusalem Above my chief joy. [7]Remember, O Jehovah, against the children of Edom The day of Jerusalem; Who said, Rase it, rase it, Even to the foundation thereof. [8]O daughter of Babylon, that art to be destroyed, Happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee As thou hast served us. [9]Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones Against the rock.

Psalm 138

[1]I will give thee thanks with my whole heart: Before the gods will I sing praises unto thee. [2]I will worship toward thy holy temple, And give thanks unto thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: For thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. [3]In the day that I called thou answeredst me, Thou didst encourage me with strength in my soul. [4]All the kings of the earth shall give thee thanks, O Jehovah, For they have heard the words of thy mouth. [5]Yea, they shall sing of the ways of Jehovah; For great is the glory of Jehovah. [6]For though Jehovah is high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly; But the haughty he knoweth from afar. [7]Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me; Thou wilt stretch forth thy hand against the wrath of mine enemies, And thy right hand will save me. [8]Jehovah will perfect that which concerneth me: Thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah, [endureth] for ever; Forsake not the works of thine own hands.

Psalm 139

[1]O Jehovah, thou hast searched me, and known [me]. [2]Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising; Thou understandest my thought afar off. [3]Thou searchest out my path and my lying down, And art acquainted with all my ways. [4]For there is not a word in my tongue, But, lo, O Jehovah, thou knowest it altogether. [5]Thou hast beset me behind and before, And laid thy hand upon me. [6][Such] knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain unto it. [7]Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? [8]If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, thou art there. [9]If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; [10]Even there shall thy hand lead me, And thy right hand shall hold me. [11]If I say, Surely the darkness shall overwhelm me, And the light about me shall be night; [12]Even the darkness hideth not from thee, But the night shineth as the day: The darkness and the light are both alike [to thee]. [13]For thou didst form my inward parts: Thou didst cover me in my mother's womb. [14]I will give thanks unto thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Wonderful are thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well. [15]My frame was not hidden from thee, When I was made in secret, [And] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. [16]Thine eyes did see mine unformed substance; And in thy book they were all written, [Even] the days that were ordained [for me], When as yet there was none of them. [17]How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them! [18]If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: When I awake, I am still with thee. [19]Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: Depart from me therefore, ye bloodthirsty men. [20]For they speak against thee wickedly, And thine enemies take [thy name] in vain. [21]Do not I hate them, O Jehovah, that hate thee? And am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? [22]I hate them with perfect hatred: They are become mine enemies. [23]Search me, O God, and know my heart: Try me, and know my thoughts; [24]And see if there be any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.

Psalm 140

[1]Deliver me, O Jehovah, from the evil man; Preserve me from the violent man: [2]Who devise mischiefs in their heart; Continually do they gather themselves together for war. [3]They have sharpened their tongue like a serpent; Adders' poison is under their lips.

Selah

[4]Keep me, O Jehovah, from the hands of the wicked; Preserve me from the violent man: Who have purposed to thrust aside my steps. [5]The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; They have spread a net by the wayside; They have set gins for me.

Selah

[6]I said unto Jehovah, Thou art my God: Give ear unto the voice of my supplications, O Jehovah. [7]O Jehovah the Lord, the strength of my salvation, Thou hast covered my head in the day of battle. [8]Grant not, O Jehovah, the desires of the wicked; Further not his evil device, [lest] they exalt themselves.

Selah

[9]As for the head of those that compass me about, Let the mischief of their own lips cover them. [10]Let burning coals fall upon them: Let them be cast into the fire, Into deep pits, whence they shall not rise. [11]An evil speaker shall not be established in the earth: Evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him. [12]I know that Jehovah will maintain the cause of the afflicted, And justice for the needy. [13]Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: The upright shall dwell in thy presence.

Psalm 141

[1]Jehovah, I have called upon thee; make haste unto me: Give ear unto my voice, when I call unto thee. [2]Let my prayer be set forth as incense before thee; The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. [3]Set a watch, O Jehovah, before my mouth; Keep the door of my lips. [4]Incline not my heart to any evil thing, To practise deeds of wickedness With men that work iniquity: And let me not eat of their dainties. [5]Let the righteous smite me, [it shall be] a kindness; And let him reprove me, [it shall be as] oil upon the head; Let not my head refuse it: For even in their wickedness shall my prayer continue. [6]Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock; And they shall hear my words; for they are sweet. [7]As when one ploweth and cleaveth the earth, Our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol. [8]For mine eyes are unto thee, O Jehovah the Lord: In thee do I take refuge; leave not my soul destitute. [9]Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, And from the gins of the workers of iniquity. [10]Let the wicked fall into their own nets, Whilst that I withal escape.

Psalm 142

[1]I cry with my voice unto Jehovah; With my voice unto Jehovah do I make supplication. [2]I pour out my complaint before him; I show before him my trouble. [3]When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, Thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walk Have they hidden a snare for me. [4]Look on [my] right hand, and see; For there is no man that knoweth me: Refuge hath failed me; No man careth for my soul. [5]I cried unto thee, O Jehovah; I said, Thou art my refuge, My portion in the land of the living. [6]Attend unto my cry; For I am brought very low: Deliver me from my persecutors; For they are stronger than I. [7]Bring my soul out of prison, That I may give thanks unto thy name: The righteous shall compass me about; For thou wilt deal bountifully with me.

Psalm 143

[1]Hear my prayer, O Jehovah; give ear to my supplications: In thy faithfulness answer me, [and] in thy righteousness. [2]And enter not into judgment with thy servant; For in thy sight no man living is righteous. [3]For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; He hath smitten my life down to the ground: He hath made me to dwell in dark places, as those that have been long dead. [4]Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; My heart within me is desolate. [5]I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy doings; I muse on the work of thy hands. [6]I spread forth my hands unto thee: My soul [thirsteth] after thee, as a weary land.

Selah

[7]Make haste to answer me, O Jehovah; my spirit faileth: Hide not thy face from me, Lest I become like them that go down into the pit. [8]Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; For in thee do I trust: Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; For I lift up my soul unto thee. [9]Deliver me, O Jehovah, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me. [10]Teach me to do thy will; For thou art my God: Thy Spirit is good; Lead me in the land of uprightness. [11]Quicken me, O Jehovah, for thy name's sake: In thy righteousness bring my soul out of trouble. [12]And in thy lovingkindness cut off mine enemies, And destroy all them that afflict my soul; For I am thy servant.

Psalm 144

[1]Blessed be Jehovah my rock, Who teacheth my hands to war, [And] my fingers to fight: [2]My lovingkindness, and my fortress, My high tower, and my deliverer; My shield, and he in whom I take refuge; Who subdueth my people under me. [3]Jehovah, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him? Or the son of man, that thou makest account of him? [4]Man is like to vanity: His days are as a shadow that passeth away. [5]Bow thy heavens, O Jehovah, and come down: Touch the mountains, and they shall smoke. [6]Cast forth lightning, and scatter them; Send out thine arrows, and discomfit them. [7]Stretch forth thy hand from above; Rescue me, and deliver me out of great waters, Out of the hand of aliens; [8]Whose mouth speaketh deceit, And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood. [9]I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: Upon a psaltery of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee. [10]Thou art he that giveth salvation unto kings; Who rescueth David his servant from the hurtful sword. [11]Rescue me, and deliver me out of the hand of aliens, Whose mouth speaketh deceit, And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood. [12]When our sons shall be as plants grown up in their youth, And our daughters as corner-stones hewn after the fashion of a palace; [13][When] our garners are full, affording all manner of store, [And] our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields; [14][When] our oxen are well laden; [When there is] no breaking in, and no going forth, And no outcry in our streets: [15]Happy is the people that is in such a case; [Yea], happy is the people whose God is Jehovah.

Psalm 145

[1]I will extol thee, my God, O King; And I will bless thy name for ever and ever. [2]Every day will I bless thee; And I will praise thy name for ever and ever. [3]Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised; And his greatness is unsearchable. [4]One generation shall laud thy works to another, And shall declare thy mighty acts. [5]Of the glorious majesty of thine honor, And of thy wondrous works, will I meditate. [6]And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts; And I will declare thy greatness. [7]They shall utter the memory of thy great goodness, And shall sing of thy righteousness. [8]Jehovah is gracious, and merciful; Slow to anger, and of great lovingkindness. [9]Jehovah is good to all; And his tender mercies are over all his works. [10]All thy works shall give thanks unto thee, O Jehovah; And thy saints shall bless thee. [11]They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, And talk of thy power; [12]To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, And the glory of the majesty of his kingdom. [13]Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And thy dominion [endureth] throughout all generations. [14]Jehovah upholdeth all that fall, And raiseth up all those that are bowed down. [15]The eyes of all wait for thee; And thou givest them their food in due season. [16]Thou openest thy hand, And satisfiest the desire of every living thing. [17]Jehovah is righteous in all his ways, And gracious in all his works. [18]Jehovah is nigh unto all them that call upon him, To all that call upon him in truth. [19]He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him; He also will hear their cry and will save them. [20]Jehovah preserveth all them that love him; But all the wicked will he destroy. [21]My mouth shall speak the praise of Jehovah; And let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.

Psalm 146

[1]Praise ye Jehovah. Praise Jehovah, O my soul. [2]While I live will I praise Jehovah: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being. [3]Put not your trust in princes, Nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. [4]His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; In that very day his thoughts perish. [5]Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in Jehovah his God: [6]Who made heaven and earth, The sea, and all that in them is; Who keepeth truth for ever; [7]Who executeth justice for the oppressed; Who giveth food to the hungry. Jehovah looseth the prisoners; [8]Jehovah openeth [the eyes of] the blind; Jehovah raiseth up them that are bowed down; Jehovah loveth the righteous; [9]Jehovah preserveth the sojourners; He upholdeth the fatherless and widow; But the way of the wicked he turneth upside down. [10]Jehovah will reign for ever, Thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye Jehovah.

Psalm 147

[1]Praise ye Jehovah; For it is good to sing praises unto our God; For it is pleasant, [and] praise is comely. [2]Jehovah doth build up Jerusalem; He gathereth together the outcasts of Israel. [3]He healeth the broken in heart, And bindeth up their wounds. [4]He counteth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by [their] names. [5]Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. [6]Jehovah upholdeth the meek: He bringeth the wicked down to the ground. [7]Sing unto Jehovah with thanksgiving; Sing praises upon the harp unto our God, [8]Who covereth the heavens with clouds, Who prepareth rain for the earth, Who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains. [9]He giveth to the beast his food, [And] to the young ravens which cry. [10]He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: He taketh no pleasure in the legs of a man. [11]Jehovah taketh pleasure in them that fear him, In those that hope in his lovingkindness. [12]Praise Jehovah, O Jerusalem; Praise thy God, O Zion. [13]For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; He hath blessed thy children within thee. [14]He maketh peace in thy borders; He filleth thee with the finest of the wheat. [15]He sendeth out his commandment upon earth; His word runneth very swiftly. [16]He giveth snow like wool; He scattereth the hoar-frost like ashes. [17]He casteth forth his ice like morsels: Who can stand before his cold? [18]He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: He causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow. [19]He showeth his word unto Jacob, His statutes and his ordinances unto Israel. [20]He hath not dealt so with any nation; And as for his ordinances, they have not known them. Praise ye Jehovah.

Psalm 148

[1]Praise ye Jehovah. Praise ye Jehovah from the heavens: Praise him in the heights. [2]Praise ye him, all his angels: Praise ye him, all his host. [3]Praise ye him, sun and moon: Praise him, all ye stars of light. [4]Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, And ye waters that are above the heavens. [5]Let them praise the name of Jehovah; For he commanded, and they were created. [6]He hath also established them for ever and ever: He hath made a decree which shall not pass away. [7]Praise Jehovah from the earth, Ye sea-monsters, and all deeps. [8]Fire and hail, snow and vapor; Stormy wind, fulfilling his word; [9]Mountains and all hills; Fruitful trees and all cedars; [10]Beasts and all cattle; Creeping things and flying birds; [11]Kings of the earth and all peoples; Princes and all judges of the earth; [12]Both young men and virgins; Old men and children: [13]Let them praise the name of Jehovah; For his name alone is exalted; His glory is above the earth and the heavens. [14]And he hath lifted up the horn of his people, The praise of all his saints; Even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye Jehovah.

Psalm 149

[1]Praise ye Jehovah. Sing unto Jehovah a new song, And his praise in the assembly of the saints. [2]Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. [3]Let them praise his name in the dance: Let them sing praises unto him with timbrel and harp. [4]For Jehovah taketh pleasure in his people: He will beautify the meek with salvation. [5]Let the saints exult in glory: Let them sing for joy upon their beds. [6][Let] the high praises of God [be] in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand; [7]To execute vengeance upon the nations, And punishments upon the peoples; [8]To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; [9]To execute upon them the judgment written: This honor have all his saints. Praise ye Jehovah.

Psalm 150

[1]Praise ye Jehovah. Praise God in his sanctuary: Praise him in the firmament of his power. [2]Praise him for his mighty acts: Praise him according to his excellent greatness. [3]Praise him with trumpet sound: Praise him with psaltery and harp. [4]Praise him with timbrel and dance: Praise him with stringed instruments and pipe. [5]Praise him with loud cymbals: Praise him with high sounding cymbals. [6]Let everything that hath breath praise Jehovah. Praise ye Jehovah.
