In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 145:1-21, the psalm opens saying, א תְּהִלָּה לְדָוִד אֲרוֹמִמְךָ אֱלוֹהַי הַמֶּלֶךְ וַאֲבָרֲכָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד: ב בְּכָל-יוֹם אֲבָרֲכֶךָּ וַאֲהַלְלָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד: ג גָּדוֹל יְהֹוָה וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד וְלִגְדֻלָּתוֹ אֵין חֵקֶר: 145:1 I will extol You, my God, O King, And I will bless Your name forever and ever. 145:2 Every day I will bless You, And I will praise Your name forever and ever. 145:3 Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised, And His greatness is unsearchable.
