מ13Thy kingdom is a kingdom for all ages,
And Thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
ס14The Lord upholdeth all that fall,
And raiseth up all those that are bowed down.
ע15The eyes of all wait for Thee,
And Thou givest them their food in due season.
פ16Thou openest Thy hand,
And satisfiest every living thing with favour.
צ17The Lord is righteous in all His ways,
And gracious in all His works.
ק18The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon Him,
To all that call upon Him in truth.
ר19He will fulfil the desire of them that fear Him;
He also will hear their cry, and will save them.
ש20The Lord preserveth all them that love Him;
But all the wicked will He destroy.
ת21My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord;
And let all flesh bless His holy name for ever and ever.


146 Hallelujah.
Praise the Lord, O my soul.
2I will praise the Lord while I live;
I will sing praises unto my God while I have my being.
 
3Put not your trust in princes,
Nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
4His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his dust;
In that very day his thoughts perish.
5Happy is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
Whose hope is in the Lord his God,
6Who made heaven and earth,
The sea, and all that in them is;
Who keepeth truth for ever;
7Who executeth justice for the oppressed;
Who giveth bread to the hungry.
 
The Lord looseth the prisoners;
8The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind;
The Lord raiseth up them that are bowed down;
The Lord loveth the righteous;
9The Lord preserveth the strangers;
He upholdeth the fatherless and the widow;
But the way of the wicked He maketh crooked.
10The Lord will reign for ever,
Thy God, O Zion, unto all generations.
Hallelujah.


147 Hallelujah;
For it is good to sing praises unto our God;
For it is pleasant, and praise is comely.
2The Lord doth build up Jerusalem,
He gathereth together the dispersed of Israel;
3Who healeth the broken in heart,
And bindeth up their wounds.
4He counteth the number of the stars;
He giveth them all their names.
5Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;
His understanding is infinite.
6The Lord upholdeth the humble;
He bringeth the wicked down to the ground.
