Praising Him

I waited patiently for the LORD;
and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

He brought me up also
out of an horrible pit,
out of the miry clay,
and set my feet upon a rock,
and established my goings.

And he hath put a new song in my mouth,
even praise unto our God:
many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

(Ps. 40:1-3)
And he appointed certain of the Levites to minister before the ark of the LORD, and to record, and to thank and praise the LORD God of Israel:

Asaph the chief, and next to him, Zechariah, Jeiel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Mattithiah, and Eliab, and Benaiah, and Obededom: and Jeiel with psalteris and with harps; but Asaph made a sound with cymbals; Benaiah also and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets continually before the ark of the covenant of God.

Then on that day David delivered first this psalm to thank the LORD into the hand of Asaph and his brethren.

"Give thanks unto the LORD,
call upon his name,
make known his deeds among the people.

Sing unto him,
sing psalms unto him,
talk ye of all his wondrous works.

Glory ye in his holy name:
let the heart of them rejoice
that seek the LORD .

Seek the LORD and his strenght,
seek his face continually.

Remember his marvelous works
that he hath done, his wonders,
and the judgments of his mouth;
Sing unto the LORD, all the earh;
shew forth from day to day his salvation.

Declare his glory
among the heathen;
his marvelous works
among all nations.

For great is the LORD,
and greatly to be praised:
he also is to be feared
above all gods.

For all the gods of the people are idols:
but the LORD made the heavens.

Glory and honor are in his presence;
strength and gladness are in his place.

Give unto the LORD,
ye kindreds of the people,
give unto the LORD
glory and strength.

Give unto the LORD
the glory due unto his name:
bring an offering, and come before him:
worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

Fear before him, all the earth:
the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.

Let the heavens be glad, and
let the earth rejoice: and
let men say among the nations,
'The LORD reigneth.'

Let the sea roar,
and the fullness thereof:
let the fields rejoice,
and all that is therin.

Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the LORD,
because he cometh to judge the earth.

O give thanks unto the LORD;
for he is good;
for his mercy endureth for ever.

And say ye, 'Save us,
O God of our salvation,
and gather us together,
and deliver us from the heathen,
that we may give thanks to thy holy name,
and glory in thy praise.

Blessed by the LORD God of Israel for ever and ever."

And all the people said, "Amen," and praised the LORD.

(I Chron. 16:4-12, 23-36)
Sing praises to the LORD,
which dwelleth in Zion:
declare among the people his doings.
That I may shew forth all thy praise
in the gates of the daughter of Zion:
I will rejoice in thy salvation.
Put them in fear, O LORD:
that the nations may know themselves
to be but men. Selah.

(Psalm 9:11, 14, 20)
...they shall praise the LORD that seek him:
your hear shall live for ever.

All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD:
and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

(Ps. 22:26b, 27)
Rejoice in the LORD,
O ye righteous:
for praise is comely
for the upright.

Praise the LORD
with harp:
sing unto him
with the psaltery
and an instrument of ten strings.

Sing unto him
a new song;
play skilfully
with a loud noise.

For the word of the LORD
is right;
and all his works
are done in truth.

He loveth righteousness and judgment:
the earth is full
of the goodness of the LORD.

By the word of the LORD
were the heavens made;
and all the host of them
by the breath of his mouth.

He gathereth the waters of the sea
together as an heap:
he layeth up the depth
in storehouses.

Let all the earth
fear the LORD:
let all the inhabitants of the world
stand in awe of him.

(Ps. 33:1-8)
I will bless the LORD
at all time:
his praise shall continually
be in my mouth.

My soul shall make her boast
in the LORD:
the humble shall hear thereof,
and be glad.

O magnify the LORD
with me,
and let us exalt his name

(Ps. 34:1-3)
I will give thee thanks
in the great congregation:
I will praise thee
among much people.

(Ps. 35:18)
My heart is fixed, O God,
my heart is fixed:
I will sing and give praise.

Awake up, my glory;
awake, psaltery and harp:
I myself will awake early.

I will praise thee, O Lord,
among the people:
I will sing unto thee
among the nations.

For thy mercy is great
unto the heavens,
and thy truth
unto the clouds.

Be thou exalted, O God,
above the heavens:
let thy glory be
above all the earth.

(Ps. 57:7-11)
Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:
Sing forth the honor of his name:
make his praise glorious.

Say unto God,
'How terrible art thou
in thy works!
through the greatness of thy power
shall thine enemies submit themselves
unto thee.'

All the earth
shall worship thee,
and shall sing unto thee;
they shall sing
to thy name.

Come and see the works of God:
he is terrible in his doing
toward the children of men.

He turned the sea into dry land:
they went through the flood on foot:
there did we rejoice in him.

He ruleth by his power for ever;
his eyes behold the nations:
let not the rebellious exalt themselves.

O bless our God, ye people,
and make the voice of his praise
to be heard:

which holdeth our soul
in life,
and sufferth not our feet
to be moved.
Come and hear,
all ye that fear God,
and I will declare
what he hath done for my soul.

(Ps. 66:1-9, 16)
God be merciful unto us,
and bless us,
and cause his face to shine
upon us; Selah.

That thy way may be known
upon the earth,
thy saving health
among all nations.

Let the people praise thee,
O God:
let all the people praise thee.

O let the nations be glad
and sing for joy:
for thou shalt judge the people righteously,
and govern the nations upon the earth.

Let the people praise thee,
O God;
let all the people praise thee.

Then shall the earth
yield her increase;
and God, even our own God,
shall bless us.

God shall bless us;
and all the ends of the earth
shall fear him.

(Ps. 67)
So we thy people and
sheep of thy pasture
will give thee thanks for ever:

we will shew forth thy praises
to all generations.

(Ps. 79:13)
O sing unto the LORD
a new song;
for he hath done
marvelous things:

his right hand, and
his holy arm,
hath gotten him the victory.

The LORD hath made known
his salvation:
his righteousness
hath he openly shewed
in the sight of the heathen.

He hath remembered
his mercy and
his truth
toward the house of Israel:

all the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation of our God.

Make a joyful noise
unto the LORD,
all the earth:

make a loud noise,
and rejoice,
and sing praise.

Sing unto the LORD
with the harp;
with the harp,
and the voice of a psalm.

With trumpets
and sound of cornet
make a joyful noise
before the LORD, the King.

Let the sea roar,
and the fullness thereof;
the world,
and they that dwell therein.

Let the floods
clap their hands:
let the hills
be joyful together
before the LORD;
for he cometh
to judge the earth:

with righteousness
shall he judge the world,
and the people
with equity.

(Ps. 98)
Then believed they
his words;
they sang
his praise.

(Ps. 106:12)
O that men would praise the LORD
for his goodness, and
for his wonderful works
to the children of men!

(Ps. 107:8, 15, 21, 31)
I will greatly praise the LORD
with my mouth;
yea, I will praise him
among the multitude.

(Ps. 109:30)
Wherefore should the heathen say,
'Where now is their God?'
But we will bless the LORD
from this time forth
and for evermore.

Praise the LORD.

(Ps. 115:2, 18)
O praise the LORD,
all ye nations:
praise him,
all ye people.

For his merciful kindness is great toward us:
and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever.

Praise ye the LORD.

(Ps. 117)
I will extol thee,
my God, O king;
and I will bless thy name
for ever and ever.

Every day
will I bless thee;
and I will praise thy name
for ever and ever.

Great is the LORD
and greatly to be prasied;
and his greatness is unsearchable.

One generation
shall praise thy works
to another,
and shall declare thy mighty acts.

I will speak
of the glorious honor
of thy majesty,
and of thy wondrous works.

And men shall speak
of the might
of thy terrible acts:
and I will declare thy greatness.

They shall abundantly utter the memory
of thy great goodness,
and shall sing
of thy righteousness.

The LORD is gracious,
and full of compassion;
slow to anger,
and of great mercy.

The LORD is good to all:
and his tender mercies
are over all his works.

All thy works
shall praise thee,
and thy saints
shall bless thee.

They shall speak
of the glory
of thy kingdom,
and talk
of thy power;

To make known to the sons of men
his mighty acts,
and the glorious majesty
of his kingdom.

Thy kingdom is
an everlasting kingdom,
and thy dominion endureth
throughout all generations.

The LORD upholdeth
all that fall,
and raiseth up
all those that be bowed down.

The eyes of all
wait upon thee;
and thou givest them their meat
in due season.

Thou openest thine hand,
and satisfiest the desire
of every living thing.

The LORD is righteous
in all his ways,
and holy
in all his works.

The LORD is nigh
unto all them that call upon him,
to all that call upon him
in truth.

He will fulfill the desire
of them that fear him:
he also will hear their cry,
and will save them.

The LORD preserveth
all them that love him:
but all the wicked
will he destroy.

My mouth shall speak
the praise of the LORD:
and let all flesh bless
his holy name
for ever and ever.

(Ps. 145)
Praise ye the LORD.

Praise ye the LORD
from the heavens:
praise him
in the heights.

Praise ye him,
all his angels:

praise ye him,
all his hosts.

Praise ye him,
sun and moon:

praise him,
all ye stars of light.

Praise him,
ye heavens of heavens,
and ye waters that be
above the heavens.

Let them praise the name of the LORD:
for he commanded,
and they were created.

He hath also stablished them
for ever and ever:
he hath made a decree
which shall not pass.

Praise the LORD
from the earth,
ye dragons,
and all deeps:

Fire, and hail;
snow, and vapor;
stormy wind
fulfilling his word:

Mountains, and all hills;
Fruitful trees, and all cedars:

Beasts, and all cattle;
creeping things, and flying fowl:

Kings of the earth, and all people;
princes, and all judges of the earth:

Both young men, and maidens;
old men, and children:

Let them praise the name of the LORD:
for his name alone
is excellent;
his glory
is above the earth and heaven.

He also exalteth the horn of his people,
the praise of all his saints;
even of the children of Israel,
a people near unto him.

Praise ye the LORD.

(Ps. 148)
And in that day thou shalt say,

"O LORD, I will praise thee:
though thou wast angry with me,
thine anger is turned away,
and thou comfortedst me.

Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and not be afraid:
for the LORD JEHOVAH is
my strength and my song;
he also is become
my salvation."

Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

And in that day shall ye say,

"Praise the LORD,
call upon his name,
declare his doings among the people,
make mention that his name is exalted.

Sing unto the LORD;
for he hath done excellent things:
this is known in all the earth.

Cry and shout,
thou inhabitant of Zion:
for great is the Holy One of Israel
in the midst of thee."

(Is. 12)

Hi! Feel free to comment. However, I was getting posts from different Anonymous people, and it's difficult to know who is who so I can keep the conversation straight in my head. So I'm requesting that you please bear with my weakness, and identify yourself. Even if you want to use a different name than your real name -- that's fine. But give yourself a handle for me, please. :) Thanks...
