Old Testament

Psalm 145:13-17
Proclamation of His Kingdom
13Your kingdom is a kingdom for all ages,
and your dominion endures through all generations.
The Lord is faithful to all his words
and merciful toward all he has made.[]
14The Lord lifts up all who fall,
and he supports all who are bowed down.
15The eyes of all look eagerly to you,
and you give them their food at the proper time.
16You open your hand,
and you satisfy the desire of every living thing.[]
17The Lord is righteous in all his ways
and merciful toward all that he has made.
