Who is like the LORD, our God?
Without tongue, he speaks;
having no mouth, he pronounces judgment.
The idols of the nations are mute;
silent, they neither profit nor deliver. Selah.
The beasts of the field make sound,
a joyful noise to the LORD.
To man you have given speech,
but with their tongue they revile you, O God.
You have given him the breath of life;
insolent, he mutters against his Creator.
Oh, that my way may be pure before you
O God, my God.
Strike me not in your anger,
and forsake me not in your wrath.
Speak, O Lord, and your servant shall be well;
let me hear you that I may live;
let me see you, lest I faint.
Drink, O drink deeply of the Lord,
O you his saints.
With him is everlasting joy –
in him you shall be satisfied. Selah.
