Psalm 145

A psalm of praise. A psalm of David.
1I will honor you, my God the King.
I will praise your name for ever and ever.
2Every day I will praise you.
I will praise your name for ever and ever.

3 Lord, you are great. You are really worthy of praise.
No one can completely understand how great you are.
4Parents praise your works to their children.
They tell about your mighty acts.
5They speak about your glorious majesty.
I will spend time thinking about your wonderful deeds.
6They speak about the powerful and wonderful things you do.
I will talk about the great things you have done.
7They celebrate your great goodness.
They sing for joy about your holy acts.

8The Lord is gracious, kind and tender.
He is slow to get angry and full of love.
9The Lord is good to all.
He shows deep concern for everything he has made.
10 Lord, all your works praise you.
Your faithful people praise you.
11They tell about your glorious kingdom.
They speak about your power.
12Then all people will know about the mighty things you have done.
They will know about the glorious majesty of your kingdom.
13Your kingdom is a kingdom that will last forever.
Your rule will continue for all time to come.

The Lord will keep all his promises.
He is faithful in everything he does.
14The Lord takes good care of all those who fall.
He lifts up all those who feel helpless.
15Every living thing looks to you for food.
You give it to them exactly when they need it.
16You open your hand
and satisfy the needs of every living creature.

17The Lord is right in everything he does.
He is faithful in everything he does.
18The Lord is ready to help all those who call out to him.
He helps those who really mean it when they call out to him.
19He satisfies the needs of those who have respect for him.
He hears their cry and saves them.
20The Lord watches over all those who love him.
But he will destroy all sinful people.

21I will praise the Lord with my mouth.
Let every creature praise his holy name
for ever and ever.
