1 A Psalm of David. Exult in the Lord, you just ones; together praise the upright.
2 Confess to the Lord with stringed instruments; sing psalms to him with the psaltery, the instrument of ten strings.
3 Sing to him a new song. Sing psalms to him skillfully, with loud exclamation.
4 For the word of the Lord is upright, and all his works are in faith.
5 He loves mercy and judgment. The earth is full of the mercy of the Lord.
6 By the word of the Lord, the heavens were established, and all their power, by the Spirit of his mouth:
7 gathering together the waters of the sea, as if in a container, placing the depths in storage.
20 Now, to the repentant, he has given the way of justice, and he has strengthened those lacking in patience, and he has fastened them to a destiny of truth.
21 Convert to the Lord, and relinquish your sins.
22 Make supplication before the face of the Lord, and diminish your offenses.
23 Return to the Lord, and turn away from your injustice, and have immense hatred for abomination.
24 And acknowledge the justices and judgments of God, and stand firm in the circumstances set before you and in prayer to the most high God.
