1  I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever.

2  Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever.

3  Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.

4  One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts.

5  They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty— and I will meditate on your wonderful works.

6  They tell of the power of your awesome works— and I will proclaim your great deeds.

13  Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does.

14  The Lord upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.

Psalm 103

1  Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.

2  Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—

3  who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,

4  who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,

5  who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

6  The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.

7  He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel:

8  The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.

9  He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;

10  he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.

11  For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;

12  as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

13  As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;

14  for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.

15  The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field;

16  the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.

17  But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children—

18  with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.

19  The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.

20  Praise the Lord, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.

21  Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will.

22  Praise the Lord, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the Lord, my soul.


Psalm 34

1  I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.

2  I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.

3  Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.

4  I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.

5  Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.

6  This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.

7  The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.

8  Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

9  Fear the Lord, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing.

10  The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

11  Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

12  Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days,

13  keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.

14  Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

15  The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry;

16  but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to blot out their name from the earth.

17  The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.

18  The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

19  The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all;

20  he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.

21  Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned.

22  The Lord will rescue his servants; no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.


Psalm 8

1  Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens.

2  Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.

3  When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,

4  what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?

5  You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor.

6  You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet:

7  all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild,

8  the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.

9  Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
