1 [[A Psalm] of David.] Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; praise becomes the upright.
2 Praise the Lord on the harp; platy to him on a psaltery of ten strings.
3 Sing to him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise.
4 For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are faithful.
5 He loves mercy and judgment; the earth is full the mercy of the Lord.
6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were established; and all the host of them by the breath of his [mouth].
7 Who gathers the waters of the sea as [in] a bottle; who lays up the deeps in treasuries.
8 Let all the earth fear the Lord; and let all that dwell in the world be moved because of him.
9 For he spoke, and they were made; he commanded, and they were created.
10 The Lord frustrates the counsels of the nations; he brings to nought also the reasonings of the peoples, and brings to nought the counsels of princes.
11 But the counsel of the Lord endures for ever, the thoughts of his heart from generation to generation.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance.
13 The Lord looks out of heaven; he beholds all the sons of men.
14 He looks from his prepared habitation on all the dwellers on the earth;
15 who fashioned their hearts alone; who understands all their works.
16 A king is not saved by reason of a great host; and a giant shall not be delivered by the greatness of his strength.
17 A horse is vain for safety; neither shall he be delivered by the greatness of his power.
18 Behold, the eyes of the Lord are on them that fear him, those that hope in his mercy;
19 to deliver their souls from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
20 Our soul waits on the Lord; for he is our helper and defender.
21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, and we have hoped in his holy name.
22 Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we have hoped in thee.
Τῷ Δαυΐδ. -
ΑΓΑΛΛΙΑΣΘΕ, δίκαιοι, ἐν Κυρίῳ· τοῖς εὐθέσι πρέπει αἴνεσις. 2 ἐξομολογεῖσθε τῷ Κυρίῳ ἐν κιθάρᾳ, ἐν ψαλτηρίῳ δεκαχόρδῳ ψάλατε αὐτῷ. 3 ᾄσατε αὐτῷ ᾆσμα καινόν, καλῶς ψάλατε αὐτῷ ἐν ἀλαλαγμῷ. 4 ὅτι εὐθὴς ὁ λόγος τοῦ Κυρίου, καὶ πάντα τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ ἐν πίστει· 5 ἀγαπᾷ ἐλεημοσύνην καὶ κρίσιν, τοῦ ἐλέους Κυρίου πλήρης ἡ γῆ. 6 τῷ λόγῳ τοῦ Κυρίου οἱ οὐρανοὶ ἐστερεώθησαν καὶ τῷ πνεύματι τοῦ στόματος αὐτοῦ πᾶσα ἡ δύναμις αὐτῶν· 7 συνάγων ὡσεὶ ἀσκὸν ὕδατα θαλάσσης, τιθεὶς ἐν θησαυροῖς ἀβύσσους. 8 φοβηθήτω τὸν Κύριον πᾶσα ἡ γῆ, ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ δὲ σαλευθήτωσαν πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὴν οἰκουμένην· 9 ὅτι αὐτὸς εἶπε καὶ ἐγενήθησαν, αὐτὸς ἐνετείλατο καὶ ἐκτίσθησαν. 10 Κύριος διασκεδάζει βουλὰς ἐθνῶν, ἀθετεῖ δὲ λογισμοὺς λαῶν καὶ ἀθετεῖ βουλὰς ἀρχόντων· 11 ἡ δὲ βουλὴ τοῦ Κυρίου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα μένει, λογισμοὶ τῆς καρδίας αὐτοῦ εἰς γενεὰν καὶ γενεάν. 12 μακάριον τὸ ἔθνος, οὗ ἐστι Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς αὐτοῦ, λαός, ὃν ἐξελέξατο εἰς κληρονομίαν ἑαυτῷ. 13 ἐξ οὐρανοῦ ἐπέβλεψεν ὁ Κύριος, εἶδε πάντας τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν ἀνθρώπων· 14 ἐξ ἑτοίμου κατοικητηρίου αὐτοῦ ἐπέβλεψεν ἐπὶ πάντας τοὺς κατοικοῦντας τὴν γῆν, 15 ὁ πλάσας κατὰ μόνας τὰς καρδίας αὐτῶν, ὁ συνιεὶς πάντα τὰ ἔργα αὐτῶν. 16 οὐ σῴζεται βασιλεὺς διὰ πολλὴν δύναμιν, καὶ γίγας οὐ σωθήσεται ἐν πλήθει ἰσχύος αὐτοῦ. 17 ψευδὴς ἵππος εἰς σωτηρίαν, ἐν δὲ πλήθει δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ οὐ σωθήσεται. 18 ἰδοὺ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ Κυρίου ἐπὶ τοὺς φοβουμένους αὐτὸν τοὺς ἐλπίζοντας ἐπὶ τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ, 19 ρύσασθαι ἐκ θανάτου τὰς ψυχὰς αὐτῶν καὶ διαθρέψαι αὐτοὺς ἐν λιμῷ. 20 ἡ ψυχὴ ἡμῶν ὑπομενεῖ τῷ Κυρίῳ, ὅτι βοηθὸς καὶ ὑπερασπιστὴς ἡμῶν ἐστιν· 21 ὅτι ἐν αὐτῷ εὐφρανθήσεται ἡ καρδία ἡμῶν, καὶ ἐν τῷ ὀνόματι τῷ ἁγίῳ αὐτοῦ ἠλπίσαμεν. 22 γένοιτο, Κύριε, τὸ ἔλεός σου ἐφ᾿ ἡμᾶς, καθάπερ ἠλπίσαμεν ἐπὶ σέ.
