and your holy ones will bless you.

and they will talk about your might,

12in order to make known your mighty acts to mankinde

as well as the majestic splendor of your kingdom.

and raises up those who are bowed down.

but he will destroy all of the wicked.

21My mouth will praise the LORD,

and all creatures will bless his holy name forever and ever.
