8 The Lord is gracious and merciful,
long-suffering and of great goodness.
9 The Lord is loving to everyone
and his mercy is over all his creatures.
14 The Lord is sure in all his words
and faithful in all his deeds.
15 The Lord upholds all those who fall
and lifts up all those who are bowed down.
16 The eyes of all wait upon you, O Lord,
and you give them their food in due season.
17 You open wide your hand
and fill all things living with plenty.
18 The Lord is righteous in all his ways
and loving in all his works.
19 The Lord is near to those who call upon him,
to all who call upon him faithfully.
20 He fulfils the desire of those who fear him;
he hears their cry and saves them.
21 The Lord watches over those who love him,
but all the wicked shall he destroy.
