Psalm 145 (acrostic) Friday Evening 4. Sunday Readings 3
I will exalt you, my God and King! * I will bless your name, O Eternal and Everlasting!
Every day I will bless you, * and praise your name to everlasting eternity.
Great is Yahweh, praiseworthy his Eminence, * for his greatness has no limit.
Each generation will praise your works to the next, * and proclaim your mighty acts.
O Majesty, they will describe your glorious splendor; * I will compose songs about your wonders.
O Strength, they will tell of your awesome acts, * and I will recount your great deeds.
They will recite the record of your goodness, Master, * and ring out your justice.
Merciful and compassionate is Yahweh, * slow to anger and abounding in kindness.
Yahweh's goodness is for all, * and his compassion is upon all his works.
All your works shall praise you, Yahweh, * and your worshipers shall bless you.
They shall announce your glorious kingship, * and tell of your power,
making known to the sons of men his mighty acts, * and the glorious splendor of his kingship.
Your kingdom is an eternal kingdom, * and your dominion endures through all generations.
Yahweh is faithful in his words, * and gracious in all his deeds.
Yahweh is the sustainer of all who fall, * and the uplifter of all bent down.
The eyes of all wait for you, * for it is you who give them * their food in its season,
you who open your hand, * and satisfy every living thing with your favor.
Yahweh is just in all his ways, * and kind in all his works.
Yahweh is near to all who call him, * to all who call him in truth.
He performs the will of those who fear him; * he hears their cry and saves them.
Yahweh is the protector of all who love him, * but all the wicked he will destroy.
The praise of Yahweh my mouth shall speak, * and all flesh shall bless his holy name, * for everlasting eternity.
