Psalm 145 Darby Translation (DARBY)

A Psalm of praise. Of David.

145 I will extol thee, my God, O King, and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.

Every day will I bless thee, and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Great is Jehovah, and exceedingly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.

One generation shall laud thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.

I will speak of the glorious splendour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.

And they shall tell of the might of thy terrible acts; and thy great deeds will I declare.

They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

Jehovah is gracious and merciful; slow to anger, and of great loving-kindness.

Jehovah is good to all; and his tender mercies are over all his works.

10 All thy works shall praise thee, Jehovah, and thy saints shall bless thee.

11 They shall tell of the glory of thy kingdom, and speak of thy power;

12 To make known to the children of men his mighty acts, and the glorious splendour of his kingdom.

13 Thy kingdom is a kingdom of all ages, and thy dominion is throughout all generations.

14 Jehovah upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all that are bowed down.

15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their food in its season.

16 Thou openest thy hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

17 Jehovah is righteous in all his ways, and kind in all his works.

18 Jehovah is nigh unto all that call upon him, unto all that call upon him in truth.

19 He fulfilleth the desire of them that fear him; he heareth their cry, and saveth them.

20 Jehovah keepeth all that love him, and 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.

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

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
    his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
    they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
    and I will meditate on your wonderful works.[b]
They tell of the power of your awesome works—
    and I will proclaim your great deeds.
They celebrate your abundant goodness
    and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

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

The Lord is good to all;
    he has compassion on all he has made.
10 All your works praise you, Lord;
    your faithful people extol you.
11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom
    and speak of your might,
12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts
    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
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.[c]
14 The Lord upholds all who fall
    and lifts up all who are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all look to you,
    and you give them their food at the proper time.
16 You open your hand
    and satisfy the desires of every living thing.

17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways
    and faithful in all he does.
18 The Lord is near to all who call on him,
    to all who call on him in truth.
19 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
    he hears their cry and saves them.
20 The Lord watches over all who love him,
    but all the wicked he will destroy.
