1 For the leader. On machalat. A maskil of David:
1 A psalm of Asaf:
1 Hear this, all peoples!
1 Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised
1 Clap your hands, all peoples!
1 God is our refuge and strength,
1 My heart overflows with a pleasing theme;
1 O God, we have heard with our ears,
1 Judge me, God, and plead my cause
1 Just as a deer longs for running streams,
1 How blessed are those who care for the poor!
1 I waited patiently for Adonai,
1 I said, “I will watch how I behave,
1 Adonai, don’t rebuke me when you are angry
1 Don’t be upset by evildoers
1 Crime speaks to the wicked.
1 Adonai, oppose those who oppose me;
34 I will bless the Lord at all times;
33 Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous!
