For the word of the Lord is true; and all his works are faithful. He loveth righteousness and judgement; the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, and all the hosts of them by the breath of his mouth. He gathereth the waters of the sea together, as it were upon an heap, and layeth up the deep, as in a treasure-house.
Let all the earth fear the Lord; stand in awe of him, all ye that dwell in the world. For he spoke, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast. The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought, and maketh the devices of the people to be of none effect, and casteth out the counsels of princes. The counsel of the Lord shall endure for ever, and the thoughts of his heart from generation to generation.
Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord Jehovah; and blessed are the folk that he hath chosen to him to be his inheritance. The Lord looked down from heaven, and beheld all the children of men; from the habitation of his dwelling, he considereth all them that dwell on the earth. He fashioneth all the hearts of them, andd understandeth all their works.
There is no king that can be saved by the multitude of an host; neither is any mighty man delivered by much strength. A horse is counted but a vain thing to save a man; neither shall he deliver any man by his great strength.
Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, and upon them that put their trust in his mercy, to deliver their soul from death, and to feed them in the time of dearth. Our soul hath patiently tarried for the Lord; for he is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have hoped in his holy Name.
Let thy merciful kindness, O Lord, be upon us, like as we do put our trust in thee.
