י יִרְאַת יְהוָה, טְהוֹרָה–עוֹמֶדֶת לָעַד: מִשְׁפְּטֵי-יְהוָה אֱמֶת; צָדְקוּ יַחְדָּו. 10
The impression of the Eternal is clean, enduring for ever;
the ordinances of the Eternal are true, they are righteous altogether;
*The Heavens Declare the Glory of the Almighty*

יא הַנֶּחֱמָדִים–מִזָּהָב, וּמִפַּז רָב; וּמְתוּקִים מִדְּבַשׁ, וְנֹפֶת צוּפִים. 11
More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
*The Heavens Declare the Glory of the Almighty*

יב גַּם-עַבְדְּךָ, נִזְהָר בָּהֶם; בְּשָׁמְרָם, עֵקֶב רָב. 12
Moreover by them is Thy servant warned;
in keeping of them there is great reward.
*The Heavens Declare the Glory of the Almighty*

יג שְׁגִיאוֹת מִי-יָבִין; מִנִּסְתָּרוֹת נַקֵּנִי. 13
Who can discern his errors?
Clear Thou me from hidden faults.
*The Heavens Declare the Glory of the Almighty*

יד גַּם מִזֵּדִים, חֲשֹׂךְ עַבְדֶּךָ– אַל-יִמְשְׁלוּ-בִי אָז אֵיתָם;
וְנִקֵּיתִי, מִפֶּשַׁע רָב. 14
Keep back Thy servant also from presumptuous sins, that they may not have dominion over me; {N}
then shall I be faultless, and I shall be clear from great transgression.
*The Heavens Declare the Glory of the Almighty*

טו יִהְיוּ לְרָצוֹן אִמְרֵי-פִי, וְהֶגְיוֹן לִבִּי לְפָנֶיךָ:
יְהוָה, צוּרִי וְגֹאֲלִי. 15
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable before Thee, {N}
O Eternal, my Rock, and my Redeemer. {P}
*The Heavens Declare the Glory of the Almighty*

א לַמְנַצֵּחַ, מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד. 1

A Psalm of David.

ב יַעַנְךָ יְהוָה, בְּיוֹם צָרָה; יְשַׂגֶּבְךָ, שֵׁם אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב. 2
The Eternal answer thee in the day of trouble;

Send forth thy help from the sanctuary, and support thee out of Zion;

ד יִזְכֹּר כָּל-מִנְחֹתֶךָ; וְעוֹלָתְךָ יְדַשְּׁנֶה סֶלָה. 4
Receive the memorial of all thy meal-offerings, and accept the fat of thy burnt-sacrifice;

Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

ו נְרַנְּנָה, בִּישׁוּעָתֶךָ– וּבְשֵׁם-אֱלֹהֵינוּ נִדְגֹּל;
יְמַלֵּא יְהוָה, כָּל-מִשְׁאֲלוֹתֶיךָ. 6
We will shout for joy in thy yeshua, and in the name of our Mighty One we will set up our standards; {N}
the Eternal fulfil all thy petitions.
*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

ז עַתָּה יָדַעְתִּי– כִּי הוֹשִׁיעַ יְהוָה, מְשִׁיחוֹ:
יַעֲנֵהוּ, מִשְּׁמֵי קָדְשׁוֹ– בִּגְבֻרוֹת, יֵשַׁע יְמִינוֹ. 7
Now know I the Eternal yeshua His messiah;
He will answer him from His holy heaven, in yeshua His power.
*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

ח אֵלֶּה בָרֶכֶב, וְאֵלֶּה בַסּוּסִים;
וַאֲנַחְנוּ, בְּשֵׁם-יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ נַזְכִּיר. 8
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; {N}
but we will make mention of the name of the Eternal our Mighty One.
*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

ט הֵמָּה, כָּרְעוּ וְנָפָלוּ; וַאֲנַחְנוּ קַּמְנוּ, וַנִּתְעוֹדָד. 9
They are bowed down and fallen;
but we are risen, and stand upright.
*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

י יְהוָה הוֹשִׁיעָה: הַמֶּלֶךְ, יַעֲנֵנוּ בְיוֹם-קָרְאֵנוּ. 10
Save us O Eternal;
let the King answer us in the day that we call. {P}
*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*
