1 Rejoice, ye just, in Jehovah, praise being suitable for the upright 2 Confess to Jehovah upon the harp: upon an instrument of ten strings play ye to him. 3 Sing to him a new song; make cheerful playing with a loud noise.
4 For straight the word of Jehovah, and all his work in faithfulness. 5 He loved justice and judgment: the earth was filled with the mercy of Jehovah.
6 By the word of Jehovah the heavens were made, and by the spirit of his mouth all their army. 7 He heaped up the waters of the sea as a mound: he gave the depths into storehouses. 8 All the earth shall fear from Jehovah: and of him shall all dwelling in the habitable globe be afraid. 9 For he said, and it shall be; he commanded, and it will stand.
10 Jehovah made vain the counsel of the nations: he brought the purposes of the peoples to nought 11 The counsel of Jehovah shall stand forever, the purposes of his heart to generation and generation. 12 Happy the nation to whom Jehovah is his God; the people he chose for an inheritance to him.
13 Jehovah looked from the heavens; he saw all the sons of man. 14 From his prepared dwelling he viewed all dwelling in the earth. 15 He formed their heart together, understanding all their works. 16 The king was not saved by much strength: the strong one will not be delivered by much power. 17 The horse was false to salvation, and he shall not deliver by the multitude of his strength.
18 Behold, the eye of Jehovah upon those fearing him, upon those hoping for his mercy; 19 To deliver their soul from death, and to save them alive in famine.
20 Our soul waited for Jehovah: he our help and our shield. 21 For in him our heart shall rejoice, for in his holy name we trusted. 22 Thy mercy, O Jehovah, shall be upon us according as we hoped for thee.
