ecclesiasticus 51:9-12


9 And I sent up my prayer from the earth,
   and begged for rescue from death.
10 I cried out, ‘Lord, you are my Father;*
   do not forsake me in the days of trouble,
   when there is no help against the proud.
11 I will praise your name continually,
   and will sing hymns of thanksgiving.’
My prayer was heard,
12   for you saved me from destruction
   and rescued me in time of trouble.
For this reason I thank you and praise you,
   and I bless the name of the Lord.


Hebrew adds:


Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to the God of praises,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to the guardian of Israel,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to him who formed all things,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to the redeemer of Israel,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to him who gathers the dispersed of Israel,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to him who rebuilt his city and his sanctuary,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to him who makes a horn to sprout for the house of David,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to him who has chosen the sons of Zadok to be priests,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to the shield of Abraham,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to the rock of Isaac,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to the mighty one of Jacob,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to him who has chosen Zion,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


Give thanks to the King of the kings of kings,
   for his mercy endures for ever;


He has raised up a horn for his people,
   praise for all his loyal ones.


For the children of Israel, the people close to him.
   Praise the Lord!
