8

O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name,

make known his deeds among the peoples.

9

Sing to him, sing praises to him,

tell of all his wonderful works.

10

Glory in his holy name;

let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.

11

Seek the Lord and his strength,

seek his presence continually.

12

Remember the wonderful works he has done,

his miracles, and the judgments he uttered,

13

O offspring of his servant Israel,

children of Jacob, his chosen ones.

 

14

He is the Lord our God;

his judgments are in all the earth.

15

Remember his covenant forever,

the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,

16

the covenant that he made with Abraham,

his sworn promise to Isaac,

17

which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute,

to Israel as an everlasting covenant,

18

saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan

as your portion for an inheritance.”

 

19

When they were few in number,

of little account, and strangers in the land,

20

wandering from nation to nation,

from one kingdom to another people,

21

he allowed no one to oppress them;

he rebuked kings on their account,

22

saying, “Do not touch my anointed ones;

do my prophets no harm.”

 

23

Sing to the Lord, all the earth.

Tell of his salvation from day to day.

24

Declare his glory among the nations,

his marvelous works among all the peoples.

25

For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;

he is to be revered above all gods.

26

For all the gods of the peoples are idols,

but the Lord made the heavens.

27

Honor and majesty are before him;

strength and joy are in his place.

 

28

Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,

ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

29

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;

bring an offering, and come before him.

Worship the Lord in holy splendor;

30

tremble before him, all the earth.

The world is firmly established; it shall never be moved.

31

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice,

and let them say among the nations, “The Lord is king!”

32

Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;

let the field exult, and everything in it.

33

Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy

before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth.

34

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;

for his steadfast love endures forever.

 

35 Say also:

“Save us, O God of our salvation,

and gather and rescue us from among the nations,

that we may give thanks to your holy name,

and glory in your praise.

36

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,

from everlasting to everlasting.”

Then all the people said “Amen!” and praised the Lord.

Verses 7–36

Let God be glorified in our praises. Let others be edified and taught, that strangers to him may be led to adore him. Let us ourselves triumph and trust in God. Those that give glory to God's name are allowed to glory in it. Let the everlasting covenant be the great matter of our joy his people of old, be remembered by us with thankfulness to him. Show forth from day to day his salvation, his promised salvation by Christ. We have reason to celebrate that from day to day; for we daily receive the benefit, and it is a subject that can never be exhausted. In the midst of praises, we must not forget to pray for the servants of God in distress.
