Praise, O servants of the Lord,
Praise the name of the Lord.

And shall declare Your mighty acts.

Which You have stored up for those who fear You,
Which You have wrought for those who take refuge in You,
Before the sons of men!

While the wicked are in my presence.”

Give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments.

How blessed will be the one who repays you
With the recompense with which you have repaid us.

Do not let me wander from Your commandments.


When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh,
My adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell.

And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.

For You I wait all the day.

And cried to my God for help;

And my cry for help before Him came into His ears.

In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps.


Upon You I was cast from birth;
You have been my God from my mother’s womb.


Your testimonies are wonderful;
Therefore my soul observes them.
