The God of My Salvation
As for God, His way is perfect.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies. But my soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter. The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations. Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness. And with my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth. I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.
Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul. That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.
O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger. The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him. And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.
I will meditate of all thy work, and talk of thy doings. And by terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea: All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.
Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.
Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever: we will shew forth thy praise to all generations. As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee. For God is the King of all the earth: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever: Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. Sing ye praises with understanding.
God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him. In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted. But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice. Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever. That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets: Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth. The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
But be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth; Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars: Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl: Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth. For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
Sing unto God, sing praises to his name:
extol him that rideth upon the heavens
by his name Jah, and rejoice before him.
