Ashrei - Psalm 145

This is an acrostic psalm, with every verse starting with a consecutive letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

Happy are those who reside in Your house, they will surely praise You, Selah! (Psalms 94:14)

Happy is the Nation who merits this, happy is the Nation whose God is God! (Psalms 78:38)

A praise psalm by David. I will exalt you, my God, the King. I will praise your name forever and ever.

Every day I will praise you. I will extol your name forever and ever.

Great is God, and greatly to be praised! His greatness is unsearchable.

One generation will praise your works to another, and will tell of your mighty acts.

Of the glorious majesty of your honor, of your wondrous works, I will speak.

People will speak of the might of your awesome acts. I will declare your greatness.

They will utter the memory of your great goodness, and will sing of your righteousness.

God is gracious, merciful, slow to anger, and of great loving kindness.

God is good to all. His tender mercies are over all his works.

All that You have made will give thanks to you, God. Your saints will extol you.

They will speak of the glory of your kingdom, and talk about your power;

To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, the glory of the majesty of his kingdom.

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. Your dominion endures throughout all generations.

God is faithful in all his words, and loving in all his deeds.

God upholds all who fall, and raises up all those who are bowed down.

The eyes of all wait for you. You give them their food in due season.

You open your hand, and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

God is righteous in all his ways, and gracious in all his works.

God is near to all those who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

He will fulfill the desire of those who fear him. He also will hear their cry, and will save them.

God preserves all those who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy.

My mouth will speak the praise of God, and all flesh will bless his holy name forever and ever.

And we will bless God from now until forever, Halleluyah!
