My heart rejoices in Yahweh; in Yahweh my strength is lifted high.
My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance.
There is no Holy One like Yahweh; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.
Yahweh is a God who knows, and by him deeds are weighed.
The bows of the warriors are broken, but those who stumbled are armed with strength.
Yahweh brings death and makes alive; He brings down to the grave and raises up.
Yahweh sends poverty and wealth; He humbles and He exalts.
He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
He seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor.
For the foundations of the earth are Yahweh’s; upon them He has set the world.
He will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness.
It is not by strength that one prevails; those who oppose Yahweh will be shattered.
He will thunder against them from heaven; Yahweh will judge the ends of the earth.
He will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed.
Unless Yahweh builds the house, its builders labor in vain.
Unless Yahweh watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.
In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat –
For while they sleep He provides for those He loves.
Sons are a heritage from Yahweh, children a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one’s youth.
Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame when they contend with the enemy in the gate.
Blessed are all who fear Yahweh, who walk in his ways.
Joshua, may you eat the fruit of your labor; may blessings and prosperity be yours.
May your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house;
May your sons will be like olive shoots around your table.
Thus is the man blessed who fears Yahweh.
May Yahweh bless you from Zion all the days of your life;
May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem,
May you live to see your children’s children.
Peace be upon you and upon Israel.
