Psalm 145:1-13 and Isaiah 41:13-20
1 The Praise of David himself. I will extol you, O God, my king. And I will bless your name, in this time and forever and ever.
2 Throughout every single day, I will bless you. And I will praise your name, in this time and forever and ever.
3 The Lord is great and exceedingly praiseworthy. And there is no end to his greatness.
4 Generation after generation will praise your works, and they will declare your power.
5 They will tell of the magnificent glory of your sanctity. And they will discourse of your wonders.
6 And they will talk about the virtue of your terrible acts. And they will describe your greatness.
7 They will shout about the memory of your abundant sweetness. And they will exult in your justice.
8 The Lord is compassionate and merciful, patient and full of mercy.
9 The Lord is sweet to all things, and his compassion is upon all his works.
10 O Lord, may all your works confess to you, and let your holy ones bless you.
11 They will speak of the glory of your kingdom, and they will declare your power,
12 so as to make known to the sons of men your power and the glory of your magnificent kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is a kingdom for all ages, and your dominion is with all, from generation to generation. The Lord is faithful in all his words and holy in all his works.
13 For I am the Lord your God. I take you by your hand, and I say to you: Do not be afraid. I have helped you.
14 Fear not, O worm of Jacob, you who are dead within Israel. I have helped you, says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
15 I have established you like a new threshing cart, having serrated blades. You will thresh the mountains and crush them. And you will turn the hills into chaff.
16 You will winnow them, and the wind will blow them away, and the whirlwind will scatter them. And you shall exult in the Lord; you shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
17 The indigent and the poor are seeking water, but there is none. Their tongue has been dried up by thirst. I, the Lord, will heed them. I, the God of Israel, will not abandon them.
18 I will open rivers in the high hills, and fountains in the midst of the plains. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the impassable land into streams of water.
19 I will plant the cedar in a deserted place, with the thorn, and the myrtle, and the olive tree. In the desert, I will plant the pine, and the elm, and the box tree together,
20 so that they may see and know, acknowledge and understand, together, that the hand of the Lord has accomplished this, and that the Holy One of Israel has created it.
