Psalm 145
International Standard VersionKing James Bible
1I will speak highly of you, my God and King, and I will bless your name forever and ever.1David's Psalm of praise. I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
2I will bless you every day and I will praise your name forever and ever.2Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
3The LORD is great, and to be praised highly, though his greatness is indescribable.3Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
4One generation will acclaim your works to another and will describe your mighty actions.4One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.
5I will speak about the glorious splendor of your majesty as well as your awesome actions.5I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.
6People will speak about the might of your great deeds, and I will announce your greatness.6And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.
7They will extol the fame of your abundant goodness, and will sing out loud about your righteousness.7They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.
8Gracious and merciful is the LORD, slow to become angry, and overflowing with gracious love.8The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
9The LORD is good to everyone and his mercies extend to everything he does.9The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
10LORD, everything you have done will praise you, and your holy ones will bless you.10All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee.
11They will speak about the glory of your kingdom, and they will talk about your might,11They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;
12in order to make known your mighty acts to mankind as well as the majestic splendor of your kingdom.12To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.
13Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your authority endures from one generation to another. [13b] God is faithful about everything he says and merciful in everything he does.13Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
14The LORD supports everyone who falls and raises up those who are bowed down.14The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.
15Everyone's eyes are on you, as you give them their food in due time.15The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.
16You open your hand and keep on satisfying the desire of every living thing.16Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
17The LORD is righteous in all of his ways and graciously loving in all of his activities.17The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.
18The LORD remains near to all who call out to him, to everyone who calls out to him sincerely. 18The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.
19He fulfills the desire of those who fear him, hearing their cry and saving them.19He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.
20The LORD preserves everyone who loves him, but he will destroy all of the wicked.20The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.
21My mouth will praise the LORD, and all creatures will bless his holy name forever and ever.21My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
