IT is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, * and to sing
praises unto thy Name, O Most Highest;
2 To tell of thy loving-kindness early in the morning, * and
of thy truth in the night season;
3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the lute; * upon

13 They also shall bring forth more fruit in their age, * and
shall be fat and well-liking;
14 That they may show how true the LORD my strength is, * and
that there is no unrighteousness in him.
