8 The Lord is compassionate and merciful, patient and full of mercy. 9 The Lord is sweet to all things, and his compassion is upon all his works. 10 O Lord, may all your works confess to you, and let your holy ones bless you. 11 They will speak of the glory of your kingdom, and they will declare your power, 12 so as to make known to the sons of men your power and the glory of your magnificent kingdom. 13 Your kingdom is a kingdom for all ages, and your dominion is with all, from generation to generation. The Lord is faithful in all his words and holy in all his works.
