Listen to this chapter in Hebrew:

1  A song of praise. Of David. I will extol You, my God and king, and bless Your name forever and ever.

א  תְּהִלָּה לְדָוִד אֲרוֹמִמְךָ אֱלוֹהַי הַמֶּלֶךְ וַאֲבָרֲכָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד׃

2  Every day will I bless You and praise Your name forever and ever.

ב  בְּכָל־יוֹם אֲבָרֲכֶךָּ וַאֲהַלְלָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד׃

3  Great is Hashem and much acclaimed; His greatness cannot be fathomed.

ג  גָּדוֹל יְהֹוָה וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד וְלִגְדֻלָּתוֹ אֵין חֵקֶר׃

4  One generation shall laud Your works to another and declare Your mighty acts.

ד  דּוֹר לְדוֹר יְשַׁבַּח מַעֲשֶׂיךָ וּגְבוּרֹתֶיךָ יַגִּידוּ׃

5  The glorious majesty of Your splendor and Your wondrous acts will I recite.

ה  הֲדַר כְּבוֹד הוֹדֶךָ וְדִבְרֵי נִפְלְאוֹתֶיךָ אָשִׂיחָה׃

6  Men shall talk of the might of Your awesome deeds, and I will recount Your greatness.

ו  וֶעֱזוּז נוֹרְאֹתֶיךָ יֹאמֵרוּ וגדולתיך [וּגְדוּלָּתְךָ] אֲסַפְּרֶנָּה׃

7  They shall celebrate Your abundant goodness, and sing joyously of Your beneficence.

ז  זֵכֶר רַב־טוּבְךָ יַבִּיעוּ וְצִדְקָתְךָ יְרַנֵּנוּ׃

8  Hashem is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in kindness.

ח  חַנּוּן וְרַחוּם יְהֹוָה אֶרֶךְ אַפַּיִם וּגְדָל־חָסֶד׃

9  Hashem is good to all, and His mercy is upon all His works.

ט  טוֹב־יְהֹוָה לַכֹּל וְרַחֲמָיו עַל־כָּל־מַעֲשָׂיו׃

10  All Your works shall praise You, Hashem, and Your faithful ones shall bless You.

י  יוֹדוּךָ יְהֹוָה כָּל־מַעֲשֶׂיךָ וַחֲסִידֶיךָ יְבָרֲכוּכָה׃

11  They shall talk of the majesty of Your kingship, and speak of Your might,

יא  כְּבוֹד מַלְכוּתְךָ יֹאמֵרוּ וּגְבוּרָתְךָ יְדַבֵּרוּ׃

12  to make His mighty acts known among men and the majestic glory of His kingship.

יב  לְהוֹדִיעַ לִבְנֵי הָאָדָם גְּבוּרֹתָיו וּכְבוֹד הֲדַר מַלְכוּתוֹ׃

13  Your kingship is an eternal kingship; Your dominion is for all generations.

יג  מַלְכוּתְךָ מַלְכוּת כָּל־עֹלָמִים וּמֶמְשֶׁלְתְּךָ בְּכָל־דּוֹר וָדוֹר׃

14  Hashem supports all who stumble, and makes all who are bent stand straight.

so-MAYKH a-do-NAI l’-khol ha-no-f’-LEEM v’-zo-KAYF l’-khol ha-k’-fu-FEEM

יד  סוֹמֵךְ יְהֹוָה לְכָל־הַנֹּפְלִים וְזוֹקֵף לְכָל־הַכְּפוּפִים׃

 145:14   Hashem supports all who stumble

According to the Talmud (Berachot 4b), this psalm, which is arranged in alphabetical order, is the choicest of all psalms, because it includes a sweeping praise of Hashem, from the first letter aleph to the final letter tav, It also serves as a reminder of the universal message that God is the sustainer of all. Indeed, the word ‘all,’ referring to all peoples, appears sixteen times in the psalm. Though it follows the Hebrew alphabet, the letter nun (נ) is missing from the psalm. The Sages explain that since the nun connotes nefila (נפילה), ‘falling,’ it was omitted. They quote Sefer Amos 5:2: “Fallen, not to rise again, is Maiden Yisrael.” Because this nefila has a negative connotation, the letter nun was omitted from this psalm. However, the Talmud quotes a second, more positive interpretation of this verse: “She has fallen and will no longer [fall]. Rise, O Maiden Israel!”1 comment

15  The eyes of all look to You expectantly, and You give them their food when it is due.

טו  עֵינֵי־כֹל אֵלֶיךָ יְשַׂבֵּרוּ וְאַתָּה נוֹתֵן־לָהֶם אֶת־אָכְלָם בְּעִתּוֹ׃

16  You give it openhandedly, feeding every creature to its heart’s content.

טז  פּוֹתֵחַ אֶת־יָדֶךָ וּמַשְׂבִּיעַ לְכָל־חַי רָצוֹן׃

17  Hashem is beneficent in all His ways and faithful in all His works.

יז  צַדִּיק יְהֹוָה בְּכָל־דְּרָכָיו וְחָסִיד בְּכָל־מַעֲשָׂיו׃

18  Hashem is near to all who call Him, to all who call Him with sincerity.

יח  קָרוֹב יְהֹוָה לְכָל־קֹרְאָיו לְכֹל אֲשֶׁר יִקְרָאֻהוּ בֶאֱמֶת׃

19  He fulfills the wishes of those who fear Him; He hears their cry and delivers them.

יט  רְצוֹן־יְרֵאָיו יַעֲשֶׂה וְאֶת־שַׁוְעָתָם יִשְׁמַע וְיוֹשִׁיעֵם׃

20  Hashem watches over all who love Him, but all the wicked He will destroy.

כ  שׁוֹמֵר יְהֹוָה אֶת־כָּל־אֹהֲבָיו וְאֵת כָּל־הָרְשָׁעִים יַשְׁמִיד׃

21  My mouth shall utter the praise of Hashem, and all creatures shall bless His holy name forever and ever.

כא  תְּהִלַּת יְהֹוָה יְדַבֶּר־פִּי וִיבָרֵךְ כָּל־בָּשָׂר שֵׁם קָדְשׁוֹ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד׃

    I WILL PRAISE THE NAME OF YESHUA JESUS…….MY LORD, MY SAVIOR, MY MESSIAH, AND MY SOON RETURNING RESURRECTED KING!!!!….WE LOVE AND PRAISE YOU LORD JESUS!!!!!!!!!
    …………………………………………………………
    Exodus 12:22
    “And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.”
    .
    IS THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB OF GOD, YESHUA JESUS, APPLIED TO YOUR LIFE AND COVERING YOUR SINS? IF NOT, Matthew 18:3-4
    3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
    4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
    .
    Romans 10:9-10
    9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    .
    Isaiah 53
    53 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
    2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
    3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
    4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
    5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
    6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
    7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
    8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
    9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
    10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
    11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
    12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
