Rashi's Commentary:

Chapter 145

1. A praise of David. I shall exalt You, my God the King, and I shall bless Your name forever and ever.   א. תְּהִלָּה לְדָוִד אֲרוֹמִמְךָ אֱלוֹהַי הַמֶּלֶךְ וַאֲבָרֲכָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד:
2. Every day I shall bless You, and I shall praise Your name forever and ever.   ב. בְּכָל יוֹם אֲבָרֲכֶךָּ וַאֲהַלְלָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד:
3. The Lord is great and very much praised, and His greatness cannot be searched.   ג. גָּדוֹל יְהֹוָה וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד וְלִגְדֻלָּתוֹ אֵין חֵקֶר:
4. Generation to generation will praise Your works, and they will recite Your mighty deeds.   ד. דּוֹר לְדוֹר יְשַׁבַּח מַעֲשֶׂיךָ וּגְבוּרֹתֶיךָ יַגִּידוּ:
Generation to generation will praise Your works: And I, too, shall speak of the majesty of the glory of Your splendor.  
5. Of the majesty of the glory of Your splendor and the words of Your wonders I shall speak.   ה. הֲדַר כְּבוֹד הוֹדֶךָ וְדִבְרֵי נִפְלְאֹתֶיךָ אָשִׂיחָה:
6. And the strength of Your awesome deeds they will tell, and Your greatness I shall sing.   ו. וֶעֱזוּז נוֹרְאֹתֶיךָ יֹאמֵרוּ וּגְדוּלָּתְךָ אֲסַפְּרֶנָּה:
And the strength of Your awesome deeds they will tell: And I, too, shall recite Your greatness.  
7. Of the remembrance of Your abundant goodness they will speak, and of Your righteousness they will sing.   ז. זֵכֶר רַב טוּבְךָ יַבִּיעוּ וְצִדְקָתְךָ יְרַנֵּנוּ:
Of the remembrance of Your abundant goodness they will speak: i.e., one generation to another generation.  
8. The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and of great kindness.   ח. חַנּוּן וְרַחוּם יְהֹוָה אֶרֶךְ אַפַּיִם וּגְדָל חָסֶד:
9. The Lord is good to all, and His mercies are on all His works.   ט. טוֹב יְהֹוָה לַכֹּל וְרַחֲמָיו עַל כָּל מַעֲשָׂיו:
10. All Your works will thank You, O Lord, and Your pious ones will bless You.   י. יוֹדוּךָ יְהֹוָה כָּל מַעֲשֶׂיךָ וַחֲסִידֶיךָ יְבָרֲכוּכָה:
11. They will tell the glory of Your kingdom, and they will speak of Your might.   יא. כְּבוֹד מַלְכוּתְךָ יֹאמֵרוּ וּגְבוּרָתְךָ יְדַבֵּרוּ:
and they will speak of Your might: to each other, saying, “It is good for us to make known to the children of men His mighty deeds and the glory of the majesty of the kingdom of the Holy One, blessed be He.” (I found.)  
12. To make known to the children of men His mighty deeds and the glory of the majesty of His kingdom.   יב. לְהוֹדִיעַ לִבְנֵי הָאָדָם גְּבוּרֹתָיו וּכְבוֹד הֲדַר מַלְכוּתוֹ:
13. Your kingdom is a kingdom of all times, and Your ruling is in every generation.   יג. מַלְכוּתְךָ מַלְכוּת כָּל עֹלָמִים וּמֶמְשַׁלְתְּךָ בְּכָל דּוֹר וָדֹר:
14. The Lord supports all those who fall and straightens all who are bent down.   יד. סוֹמֵךְ יְהֹוָה לְכָל הַנֹּפְלִים וְזוֹקֵף לְכָל הַכְּפוּפִים:
supports: (The “nun” is missing from the “aleph-beth” because David saw in it a serious downfall [Amos 5:2]: “The virgin of Israel has fallen and shall not continue to rise.” And he returned and supported her with the holy spirit: The Lord supports all those who fall.)  
15. Everyone's eyes look to You with hope, and You give them their food in its time.   טו. עֵינֵי כֹל אֵלֶיךָ יְשַׂבֵּרוּ וְאַתָּה נוֹתֵן לָהֶם אֶת אָכְלָם בְּעִתּוֹ:
16. You open Your hand and satisfy every living thing [with] its desire.   טז. פּוֹתֵחַ אֶת יָדֶךָ וּמַשְׂבִּיעַ לְכָל חַי רָצוֹן:
and satisfy every living thing [with] its desire: With a sufficiency to sustain him, He satisfies his goodness, his will, and his blessing.  
desire: Heb. רצון, apayement in Old French, propitiation.  
17. The Lord is righteous in all His ways and kind in all His deeds.   יז. צַדִּיק יְהֹוָה בְּכָל דְּרָכָיו וְחָסִיד בְּכָל מַעֲשָׂיו:
18. The Lord is near to all who call Him, to all who call Him with sincerity.   יח. קָרוֹב יְהֹוָה לְכָל קֹרְאָיו לְכֹל אֲשֶׁר יִקְרָאֻהוּ בֶאֱמֶת:
19. He does the will of those who fear Him, and He hears their cry and saves them.   יט. רְצוֹן יְרֵאָיו יַעֲשֶׂה וְאֶת שַׁוְעָתָם יִשְׁמַע וְיוֹשִׁיעֵם:
20. The Lord guards all who love Him, and He destroys all the wicked.   כ. שׁוֹמֵר יְהֹוָה אֶת כָּל אֹהֲבָיו וְאֵת כָּל הָרְשָׁעִים יַשְׁמִיד:
21. My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, and all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.   כא. תְּהִלַּת יְהֹוָה יְדַבֵּר פִּי וִיבָרֵךְ כָּל בָּשָׂר שֵׁם קָדְשׁוֹ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד:
My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord: and also all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.
