I poured forth praise to the Lord, Because I am his. 2 And I will utter his holy psalm, Because my heart is with him; 3 For his harp is in my hands, And the psalms of his rest will not be silent. 4 I will cry to him with all my heart: I will praise and exalt him with all my members; 5 For from the east to the west Praise is his, 6 And from the north to the south Thanksgiving is his, 7 And from the top of the heights to their furthest part Perfection 1 Or perhaps, ‘whole-offering’. is his. 8 Who can write the psalms of the Lord, Or who can recite them? 9 Or who can instruct his soul for life, That his soul may be delivered? 10 Or who can rest upon the Most High, That he may speak from his mouth? 11 Who is able to interpret the wonders of the Lord? For he who interprets will be destroyed, And what is to be interpreted will remain. 12 For it is enough to know and rest; For the psalmists remain in rest, 13 Like a river that has an abundant spring, And flow for the help of those who seek it. Hallelujah.
