Psalm CLIV

1

בְּקוֹל גָּדוֹל פָּאֲרוּ אֱלֹהִים; בִּקְהַל־רַבִּים הַשְׁמִיעוּ תִפְאַרְתּוֹ׃

With a loud voice glorify God, in the congregation of the many proclaim His majesty.

2

בְּרֹב־יְשָׁרִים פָּאֲרוּ שְׁמוֹ; וְעִם־אֵמוּנִים סַפְּרוּ גְדוֹלָתוֹ׃

In the multitude of the upright glorify His name, and with the faithful recount His greatness.

3

חַבְּרוּ לַטּוֹבִים נַפְשׁוֹתֵיכֶם; וְלַתְּמִימִים לְפָאֵר עֶלְיוֹן׃

Bind your souls to the good ones, and to the pure ones to glorify the Most High.

4

הַחְבִּירוּ יַחַד לְהוֹדִיעַ יִשְׁעוֹ; וְאַל־תִּתְעַצְּלוּ לְהוֹדִיעַ עֻזּוֹ וְתִּפְאַרְתּוֹ לְכׇל־פְּתָאִים׃

Form an assembly to proclaim His salvation, and be not lax in making known His might and His majesty to all simple folk.

5

כִּי לְהוֹדִיעַ כְּבוֹד יהוה; נִתְּנָה חׇכְמָה׃

For to make known the glory of the LORD is Wisdom given.

6

וּלְסָפֵּר רֹב־מַעֲשָׂיו; נוֹדְעָה לְאָדָם׃

And for recounting His many deeds She was revealed to men.

7

לְהוֹדִיעַ לִפְתָאִים עֻזּוֹ; לְהַשְׂכִיל לְחָסְרֵי־לֵבָב גְּדוֹלָתוֹ׃

To make known to the simple folk His might, and to explain to senseless folk His greatness.

8

הָרְחוֹקִים מִפִּתְחֶיהָ; הַנִּדָּחִים מִמְּבוֹאוֹתֶיהָ׃

Those far from Her gates, those who stray from Her portals.

9

כִּי עֶלְיוֹן הוּא אָדוֹן יַעֲקֹב; וְתִפְאַרְתּוֹ עַל־כׇּל־מַעֲשָׂיו׃

For the Most High is the Lord of Jacob, and His majesty is over all His works.

10

וְאָדָם מְפָאֵר עֶלְיוֹן; יְרַצֶּה כְּמַגִּישׁ מִנְחָה׃

And a man who glorifies the Most High, He accepts as one who brings a meal-offering.

11

כְּמַקְרִיב עַתּוּדִים וּבְנֵי־בָּקָר; כִּמְדַשֵּׁן מִזְבֵחַ בְּרֹב־עוֹלוֹת; כִּקְטוֹרֶת נִיחוֹחַ מִיָּד־צַדִּיקִים׃

As one who offers he-goats and bullocks; as one who fattens the altar with many burnt offerings; as with a sweet-smelling fragrance from the hand of the righteous.

12

מִפִּתְחֵי צַדִּיקִים נִשְׁמְעָה קוֹלָהּ; וּמִקְּהַל־חֲסִידִים זִמְרָתָהּ׃

From the gates of the righteous Her voice is heard, and from the assembly of the pious Her song.

13

עַל־אוֹכְלִים בְּשֹׂבַע נֶאֶמְרָה; וְעַל שָׁתֹתִים בּחֶבֶר יְחִידָיו׃

When they eat with satiety She is cited, and when they drink in a community together.

14

שִׂיחָתָם בְּתוֹרָת עֶלְיוֹן; אָמְרֵיהֶם לְהוֹדִיעַ עֻזּוֹ׃

Their meditation is on the Law of the Most High, their words on making known His might.

15

כַּמָּה רְחֹקָה מֵרְשָׁעִים אוֹמְרָהּ; מִכֹּל זֵדִים לְדַעְתָּה׃

How far from the wicked is Her word, from all haughty men to know Her.

16

הִנֵּה עֵינֵי יהוה; עַל־טוֹבִים תַּחְמֹל׃

Behold the eyes of the LORD are compassionate over the good ones.

17

וְעַל מְפַאֲרָיו יִגְדַּל חַסּדּוֹ; מֵעֵת רָעָה יַצִּיל נַפְשָׁם׃

And upon those who glorify Him He increases His mercy; from an evil time will He deliver their soul.

18

בָּרְכוּ אֶת־יהוה; גּוֹאֵל עָנִי מִיָּד צָרִים; וּמַצִּיל‎ תְּמִימִים‎ מִיָּד רְשָׁעִים׃

Bless the LORD, who redeems the humble from the hand of adversaries, and He delivers the perfect from the power of the wicked.

19

מֵקִים קֶרֶן מִיַעֲקֹב; וְשׁוֹפֵט עַמִּים מִיִּשְׂרָאֵל׃

Who establishes a horn out of Jacob, and a judge of peoples out of Israe.

20

אִוָּה מִשְׁכָּנוֹ בְּצִיּוֹן; בּוֹחֵר לַנֶצָח בִּירוּשָׁלָיִם׃

He who desires his habitation in Zion, choose Jerusalem forever.
