2Great are the works of the LORD ; they are pondered by all who delight in them.

3Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever.

4He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and compassionate.

5He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever.

6He has shown his people the power of his works, giving them the lands of other nations.

7The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy.

8They are established for ever and ever, enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.

9He provided redemption for his people; he ordained his covenant forever— holy and awesome is his name. 10The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
