Rashi's Commentary:

Chapter 145

1A praise of David. I shall exalt You, my God the King, and I shall bless Your name forever and ever.   אתְּהִלָּה לְדָוִד אֲרוֹמִמְךָ אֱלוֹהַי הַמֶּלֶךְ וַאֲבָרֲכָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד:
2Every day I shall bless You, and I shall praise Your name forever and ever.   בבְּכָל יוֹם אֲבָרֲכֶךָּ וַאֲהַלְלָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד:
3The Lord is great and very much praised, and His greatness cannot be searched.   גגָּדוֹל יְהֹוָה וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד וְלִגְדֻלָּתוֹ אֵין חֵקֶר:
4Generation to generation will praise Your works, and they will recite Your mighty deeds.   דדּוֹר 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.  
5Of the majesty of the glory of Your splendor and the words of Your wonders I shall speak.   ההֲדַר כְּבוֹד הוֹדֶךָ וְדִבְרֵי נִפְלְאֹתֶיךָ אָשִׂיחָה:
6And the strength of Your awesome deeds they will tell, and Your greatness I shall sing.   ווֶעֱזוּז נוֹרְאֹתֶיךָ יֹאמֵרוּ וּגְדוּלָּתְךָ (כתיב וּגְדֻלָּותְךָ) אֲסַפְּרֶנָּה:
And the strength of Your awesome deeds they will tell: And I, too, shall recite Your greatness.  
7Of the remembrance of Your abundant goodness they will speak, and of Your righteousness they will sing.   זזֵכֶר רַב טוּבְךָ יַבִּיעוּ וְצִדְקָתְךָ יְרַנֵּנוּ:
Of the remembrance of Your abundant goodness they will speak: i.e., one generation to another generation.  
8The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and of great kindness.   חחַנּוּן וְרַחוּם יְהֹוָה אֶרֶךְ אַפַּיִם וּגְדָל חָסֶד:
9The Lord is good to all, and His mercies are on all His works.   טטוֹב יְהֹוָה לַכֹּל וְרַחֲמָיו עַל כָּל מַעֲשָׂיו:
10All Your works will thank You, O Lord, and Your pious ones will bless You.   ייוֹדוּךָ יְהֹוָה כָּל מַעֲשֶׂיךָ וַחֲסִידֶיךָ יְבָרֲכוּכָה:
11They will tell the glory of Your kingdom, and they will speak of Your might.   יאכְּבוֹד 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.)  
12To make known to the children of men His mighty deeds and the glory of the majesty of His kingdom.   יבלְהוֹדִיעַ לִבְנֵי הָאָדָם גְּבוּרֹתָיו וּכְבוֹד הֲדַר מַלְכוּתוֹ:
13Your kingdom is a kingdom of all times, and Your ruling is in every generation.   יגמַלְכוּתְךָ מַלְכוּת כָּל עֹלָמִים וּמֶמְשַׁלְתְּךָ בְּכָל דּוֹר וָדֹר:
14The Lord supports all those who fall and straightens all who are bent down.   ידסוֹמֵךְ 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.)  
15Everyone's eyes look to You with hope, and You give them their food in its time.   טועֵינֵי כֹל אֵלֶיךָ יְשַׂבֵּרוּ וְאַתָּה נוֹתֵן לָהֶם אֶת אָכְלָם בְּעִתּוֹ:
16You open Your hand and satisfy every living thing [with] its desire.   טזפּוֹתֵחַ 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.  
17The Lord is righteous in all His ways and kind in all His deeds.   יזצַדִּיק יְהֹוָה בְּכָל דְּרָכָיו וְחָסִיד בְּכָל מַעֲשָׂיו:
18The Lord is near to all who call Him, to all who call Him with sincerity.   יחקָרוֹב יְהֹוָה לְכָל קֹרְאָיו לְכֹל אֲשֶׁר יִקְרָאֻהוּ בֶאֱמֶת:
19He does the will of those who fear Him, and He hears their cry and saves them.   יטרְצוֹן יְרֵאָיו יַעֲשֶׂה וְאֶת שַׁוְעָתָם יִשְׁמַע וְיוֹשִׁיעֵם:
20The Lord guards all who love Him, and He destroys all the wicked.   כשׁוֹמֵר יְהֹוָה אֶת כָּל אֹהֲבָיו וְאֵת כָּל הָרְשָׁעִים יַשְׁמִיד:
21My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, and all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.   כאתְּהִלַּת 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.
