in the company of the upright, in the congregation.

studied by all who delight in them.

Full of honor and majesty is his work,
and his righteousness endures forever.

The Lord has gained renown by his wonderful deeds;
The Lord is gracious and merciful.

The Lord provides food for those who fear him;
He is ever mindful of his covenant.

VOICE ONE:
He has shown his people the power of his works,
in giving them the heritage of the nations.

The works of his hands are faithful and just;
All his precepts are trustworthy.

BOTH VOICES:
They are established forever and ever,
to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.

VOICE ONE:
He sent redemption to his people;
He has commanded his covenant forever.

BOTH VOICES:
Holy and awesome is his name.

VOICE TWO:
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all those who practice it have a good understanding.

BOTH VOICES:
His praise endures forever.
