David praiseth God: the blessedness of God's chosen because of his infinite power and goodness.
0 To the chief Musician, 1A Psalm and Song of David.
1 Praise awaiteth for thee, O God, 1in Sion: and unto thee 2shall the vow be performed.
2 O thou 1that hearest prayer, unto thee shall 2all flesh come.
3 aIniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
4 1Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that 2he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be 3satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
5 by 1terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O 2God of our salvation; who art the 3confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:
6 Which by his strength 1set-teth fast the mountains; being 2girded with power:
7 Which 1stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the 2tumult of the people.
8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at 1thy tokens: 2thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening ato rejoice.
9 Thou visitest the earth, aand waterest it: thou 1greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: athou settlest the furrows thereof: bthou makest it soft with showers: thou 1blessest the springing thereof.
11 Thou crownest athe year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.
12 They 1drop upon 2the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills arejoice on every side.
13 The 1pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.
