Psalm 145

I will exalt you, my God, the king,

    and bless your name forever and ever.

Every day I will bless you,

    and praise your name forever and ever.

Great is Yahweh and very much worthy to be praised;

    Yahweh's greatness is beyond understanding.

One generation will praise your deeds to the next,

    and will declare your mighty acts.

I will meditate on the glory of your majesty,

    and your miraculous words and deeds.

People will recount the power of your awe-inspiring deeds,

    and I will recite your greatness.

They will celebrate the memory of the abundance of your goodness,

    and give a ringing cheer for the fidelity of your relationship to us.

Yahweh is gracious and full of motherly mercy,

    slow to anger, and great in loyalty.

All your deeds praise you, Yahweh,

    and all your faithful people will bless you.

They will speak of your glorious kingdom,

    and tell abroad your greatness,

to make known to all humanity your greatness,

    and your glorious and splendid royal rule.

Your royal rule is an everlasting rule,

    and your dominion endures generation after generation.

Here begins the second segment for the 11th Sunday after Pentecost, Series A

Yahweh holds up all who are falling,

    and raises up all those who are bowed down.

Here ends the psalm segment for the 7th Sunday after Pentecost, Series A

Everyone's eyes look to you,

    and you give them their food at its appropriate time.

You open your hand,

    and you satisfactorily meet the desires of all living creatures.

Yahweh is utterly reliable in all his activities,

    and loyal in all his actions.

Yahweh is available to all who call upon him,

    to all who call upon him with fidelity.

Yahweh meets the desires of all those who stand in awe of him;

    Yahweh also listens to their cry for help and delivers them.

Here ends the psalm segment for the 7th Sunday after Pentecost, Series B

Yahweh keeps secure all those who love him,

    but he destroys all the wicked.

My mouth will enunciate the praise of Yahweh,

    and all flesh will bless his holy name forever and ever.
