Shout for joy in YHWH, you righteous! Praise is fitting for the straight!
Praise YHWH with the lyre; Sing to Him with an instrument of ten strings.
Sing to Him a new song; Play sweetly with a shout of joy.
For the Word of YHWH is straight, And all His works are in truth,
Loving righteousness and right-ruling; The earth is filled with the kindness of YHWH.
By the Word of YHWH the heavens were made, And all their host by the Spirith of His mouth,
Gathering the waters of the sea together as a heap; Laying up the deep in storehouses.
Let all the earth fear YHWH; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
For He spoke, and it came to be; He commanded, and it stood fast.
YHWH brings the counsel of the nations to naught; He thwarts the plans of the peoples.
The counsel of YHWH stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose Elohim is YHWH, The people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance.
YHWH has looked from the heavens; He has seen all the sons of men.
He looked from His dwelling place On all the inhabitants of the earth -
He who fashions the hearts of them all, He who understands all their works.
The sovereign is not saved by the multitude of an army; A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
A horse is a vain means of safety; Neither does it rescue any by its great power.
See, the eye of YHWH is on those fearing Him, On those waiting for His kindness,
To deliver their being from death, And to keep them alive during scarcity of food.
Our being has longed for YHWH; Our help and our shield is He.
For our heart does rejoice in Him, For we have put our trust in His set-apart Name.
Let Your kindness, O YHWH, be upon us, Even as we wait for You.
