[For the choir director. A Davidic psalm.] The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky proclaims the work of His hands.
One generation will declare Your works to the next and will proclaim Your mighty acts.
I will speak of Your glorious splendor and Your wonderful works.
All You have made will praise You, LORD; the godly will bless You.
They will speak of the glory of Your kingdom and will declare Your might,
informing [all] people of Your mighty acts and of the glorious splendor of Your kingdom.
LORD, Your right hand is glorious in power. LORD, Your right hand shattered the enemy.
You overthrew Your adversaries by Your great majesty. You unleashed Your burning wrath; it consumed them like stubble.
LORD, who is like You among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, revered with praises, performing wonders?
to the praise of His glorious grace that He favored us with in the Beloved.
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace
that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.
This is so that God's multi-faceted wisdom may now be made known through the church to the rulers and authorities in the heavens.
They said with a loud voice: The Lamb who was slaughtered is worthy to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing!
I heard every creature in heaven, on earth, under the earth, on the sea, and everything in them say: Blessing and honor and glory and dominion to the One seated on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!
The four living creatures said, "Amen," and the elders fell down and worshiped.
But from eternity to eternity the LORD's faithful love is toward those who fear Him, and His righteousness toward the grandchildren
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your instruction is true.
Your decrees are righteous forever. Give me understanding, and I will live.
My righteousness is near, My salvation appears, and My arms will bring justice to the nations. The coastlands will put their hope in Me, and they will look to My strength.
Look up to the heavens, and look at the earth beneath; for the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment, and its inhabitants will die in like manner. But My salvation will last forever, and My righteousness will never be shattered.
For the moth will devour them like a garment, and the worm will eat them like wool. But My righteousness will last forever, and My salvation for all generations.
Seventy weeks are decreed about your people and your holy city-- to bring the rebellion to an end, to put a stop to sin, to wipe away injustice, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most holy place.
