“The Book of the Writings”:

 

Psalms  1:

 

1:1 Blessed is the man

Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,

Nor stands in the path of sinners,

Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

1:2 But his delight is in the law of Yahweh,

And in His law he meditates day and night.

1:3 He shall be like a tree

Planted by the rivers of water,

That brings forth its fruit in its season,

Whose leaf also shall not wither;

And whatever he does shall prosper.

1:4 The ungodly are not so,

But are like the chaff which the wind drives

away.

1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the

judgment,

Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

1:6 For Yahweh knows the way of the righteous,

But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psalms 2:

2:1 Why do the nations rage,

And the people plot a vain thing?

2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves,

And the rulers take counsel together,

Against Yahweh and against His Anointed,

saying,

2:3 "Let us break Their bonds in pieces

And cast away Their cords from us."

2:4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;

Yahweh shall hold them in derision.

2:5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,

And distress them in His deep displeasure:

2:6 "Yet I have set My King

On My holy hill of Zion."

2:7 "I will declare the decree:

Yahweh has said to Me,

'You are My Son,

Today I have begotten You.

2:8 Ask of Me, and I will give You

The nations for Your inheritance,

And the ends of the earth for Your possession.

2:9 You shall break them with a rod of iron;

You shall dash them to pieces like a potter's

vessel.' "

2:10 Now therefore, be wise, O kings;

Be instructed, you judges of the earth.

2:11 Serve Yahweh with fear,

And rejoice with trembling.

2:12 Kiss the Son, lest He be angry,

And you perish in the way,

When His wrath is kindled but a little.

Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.

 

Psalms 3:

3:1 Yahweh, how they have increased who

trouble me!

Many are they who rise up against me.

3:2 Many are they who say of me,

"There is no help for him in Yahweh." Selah

3:3 But You, O Yahweh, are a shield for me,

My glory and the One who lifts up my head.

3:4 I cried to Yahweh with my voice,

And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah

3:5 I lay down and slept;

I awoke, for Yahweh sustained me.

3:6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people

Who have set themselves against me all around.

3:7 Arise, O Yahweh;

Save me, O my God!

For You have struck all my enemies on the

cheekbone;

You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.

3:8 Salvation belongs to Yahweh.

Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah

 

Psalms 4:

4:1 Hear me when I call, O God of my

righteousness!

You have relieved me in my distress;

Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.

4:2 How long, O you sons of men,

Will you turn my glory to shame?

How long will you love worthlessness

And seek falsehood? Selah

4:3 But know that Yahweh has set apart for

Himself him who is godly;

Yahweh will hear when I call to Him.

4:4 Be angry, and do not sin.

Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be

still. Selah

4:5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,

And put your trust in Yahweh.

4:6 There are many who say,

"Who will show us any good?"

Yahweh, lift up the light of Your countenance

upon us.

4:7 You have put gladness in my heart,

More than in the season that their grain and wine

increased.

4:8 I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;

For You alone, O Yahweh, make me dwell in

safety.

 

Psalms 5:

5:1 Give ear to my words, O Yahweh,

Consider my meditation.

5:2 Give heed to the voice of my cry,

My King and my God,

For to You I will pray.

5:3 My voice You shall hear in the morning, O

Yahweh;

In the morning I will direct it to You,

And I will look up.

5:4 For You are not a God who takes pleasure in

wickedness,

Nor shall evil dwell with You.

5:5 The boastful shall not stand in Your sight;

You hate all workers of iniquity.

5:6 You shall destroy those who speak

falsehood;

Yahweh abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful

man.

5:7 But as for me, I will come into Your house in

the multitude of Your mercy;

In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy

temple.

5:8 Lead me, O Yahweh, in Your righteousness

because of my enemies;

Make Your way straight before my face.

5:9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;

Their inward part is destruction;

Their throat is an open tomb;

They flatter with their tongue.

5:10 Pronounce them guilty, O Yahweh!

Let them fall by their own counsels;

Cast them out in the multitude of their

transgressions,

For they have rebelled against You.

5:11 But let all those rejoice who put their trust

in You;

Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend

them; Let those also who love Your name

Be joyful in You.

5:12 For You, O Yahweh, will bless the

righteous;

With favor You will surround him as with a

shield.

Psalms 6:

6:1 O Yahweh, do not rebuke me in Your anger,

Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure.

6:2 Have mercy on me, O Yahweh, for I am

weak;

O Yahweh, heal me, for my bones are troubled.

6:3 My spirit also is greatly troubled;

But You, O Yahweh-how long?

6:4 Return, O Yahweh, deliver me!

Oh, save me for Your mercies' sake!

6:5 For in death there is no remembrance of You;

In the grave who will give You thanks?

6:6 I am weary with my groaning;

All night I make my bed swim;

I drench my couch with my tears.

6:7 My eye wastes away because of grief;

It grows old because of all my enemies.

6:8 Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;

For Yahweh has heard the voice of my weeping.

6:9 Yahweh has heard my supplication;

Yahweh will receive my prayer.

6:10 Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly

troubled;

Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.

 

Psalms 7:

7:1 O Yahweh my God, in You I put my trust;

Save me from all those who persecute me;

And deliver me,

7:2 Lest they tear me like a lion,

Rending me in pieces, while there is none to

deliver.

7:3 O Yahweh my God, if I have done this:

If there is iniquity in my hands,

7:4 If I have repaid evil to him who was at peace

with me,

Or have plundered my enemy without cause,

7:5 Let the enemy pursue me and overtake me;

Yes, let him trample my life to the earth,

And lay my honor in the dust. Selah

7:6 Arise, O Yahweh, in Your anger;

Lift Yourself up because of the rage of my

enemies;

Rise up for me to the judgment You have

commanded!

7:7 So the congregation of the peoples shall

surround You;

For their sakes, therefore, return on high.

7:8 Yahweh shall judge the peoples;

Judge me, O Yahweh, according to my

righteousness,

And according to my integrity within me.

7:9 Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to

an end,

But establish the just;

For the righteous Yahweh tests the hearts and

minds.

7:10 My defense is of Yahweh,

Who saves the upright in heart.

7:11 Yahweh is a just judge,

And Yahweh is angry with the wicked every day.

7:12 If he does not turn back,

He will sharpen His sword;

He bends His bow and makes it ready.

7:13 He also prepares for Himself instruments of

death;

He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.

7:14 Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity;

Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth

falsehood.

7:15 He made a pit and dug it out,

And has fallen into the ditch which he made.

7:16 His trouble shall return upon his own head,

And his violent dealing shall come down on his

own crown.

7:17 I will praise Yahweh according to His

righteousness,

And will sing praise to the name of Yahweh

Most High.

 

Psalms 8:

8:1 O Yahweh, our Lord,

How excellent is Your name in all the earth,

Who have set Your glory above the heavens!

8:2 Out of the mouth of babes and nursing

infants

You have ordained strength,

Because of Your enemies,

That You may silence the enemy and the

avenger.

8:3 When I consider Your skies, the work of

Your fingers,

The moon and the stars, which You have

ordained,

8:4 What is man that You are mindful of him,

And the son of man that You visit him?

8:5 For You have made him a little lower than

the angels,

And You have crowned him with glory and

honor.

8:6 You have made him to have dominion over

the works of Your hands;

You have put all things under his feet,

8:7 All sheep and oxen-

Even the beasts of the field,

8:8 The birds of the air,

And the fish of the sea

That pass through the paths of the seas.

8:9 O Yahweh, our Lord,

How excellent is Your name in all the earth!

 

Psalms 9:

9:1 I will praise You, O Yahweh, with my whole

heart;

I will tell of all Your marvelous works.

9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in You;

I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.

9:3 When my enemies turn back,

They shall fall and perish at Your presence.

9:4 For You have maintained my right and my

cause;

You sat on the throne judging in righteousness.

9:5 You have rebuked the nations,

You have destroyed the wicked;

You have blotted out their name forever and

ever.

9:6 O enemy, destructions are finished forever!

And you have destroyed cities;

Even their memory has perished.

9:7 But Yahweh shall endure forever;

He has prepared His throne for judgment.

9:8 He shall judge the world in righteousness,

And He shall administer judgment for the

peoples in uprightness.

9:9 Yahweh also will be a refuge for the

oppressed,

A refuge in times of trouble.

9:10 And those who know Your name will put

their trust in You;

For You, Yahweh, have not forsaken those who

seek You.

9:11 Sing praises to Yahweh, who dwells in

Zion!

Declare His deeds among the people.

9:12 When He avenges blood, He remembers

them;

He does not forget the cry of the humble.

9:13 Have mercy on me, O Yahweh!

Consider my trouble from those who hate me,

You who lift me up from the gates of death,

9:14 That I may tell of all Your praise

In the gates of the daughter of Zion.

I will rejoice in Your salvation.

9:15 The nations have sunk down in the pit

which they made;

In the net which they hid, their own foot is

caught.

9:16 Yahweh is known by the judgment He

executes;

The wicked is snared in the work of his own

hands.

Meditation. Selah

9:17 The wicked shall be turned into the grave,

And all the nations that forget Yahweh.

9:18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten;

The expectation of the poor shall not perish

forever.

9:19 Arise, O Yahweh,

Do not let man prevail;

Let the nations be judged in Your sight.

9:20 Put them in fear, O Yahweh,

That the nations may know themselves to be but

men. Selah

 

Psalms 10:

10:1 Why do You stand afar off, O Yahweh?

Why do You hide in times of trouble?

10:2 The wicked in his pride persecutes the poor;

Let them be caught in the plots which they have

devised.

10:3 For the wicked boasts of his heart's desire;

He blesses the greedy and renounces Yahweh.

10:4 The wicked in his proud countenance does

not seek Yahweh;

Yahweh is in none of his thoughts.

10:5 His ways are always prospering;

Your judgments are far above, out of his sight;

As for all his enemies, he sneers at them.

10:6 He has said in his heart, "I shall not be

moved;

I shall never be in adversity."

10:7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and

oppression;

Under his tongue is trouble and iniquity.

10:8 He sits in the lurking places of the villages;

In the secret places he murders the innocent;

His eyes are secretly fixed on the helpless.

10:9 He lies in wait secretly, as a lion in his den;

He lies in wait to catch the poor;

He catches the poor when he draws him into his

net.

10:10 So he crouches, he lies low,

That the helpless may fall by his strength.

10:11 He has said in his heart,

"Yahweh has forgotten;

He hides His face;

He will never see."

10:12 Arise, O Yahweh!

O Yahweh, lift up Your hand!

Do not forget the humble.

10:13 Why do the wicked renounce Yahweh?

He has said in his heart,

"You will not require an account."

10:14 But You have seen, for You observe

trouble and grief,

To repay it by Your hand.

The helpless commits himself to You;

You are the helper of the fatherless.

10:15 Break the arm of the wicked and the evil

man;

Seek out his wickedness until You find none.

10:16 Yahweh is King forever and ever;

The nations have perished out of His land.

10:17 Yahweh, You have heard the desire of the

humble;

You will prepare their heart;

You will cause Your ear to hear,

10:18 To do justice to the fatherless and the

oppressed,

That the man of the earth may oppress no more.

 

Psalms 11:

11:1 In Yahweh I put my trust;

How can you say to my spirit,

"Flee as a bird to your mountain"?

11:2 For look! The wicked bend their bow,

They make ready their arrow on the string,

That they may shoot secretly at the upright in

heart.

11:3 If the foundations are destroyed,

What can the righteous do?

11:4 Yahweh is in His holy temple,

Yahweh’s throne is in heaven;

His eyes behold,

His eyelids test the sons of men.

11:5 Yahweh tests the righteous,

But the wicked and the one who loves violence

His spirit hates.

11:6 Upon the wicked He will rain coals;

Fire and brimstone and a burning wind

Shall be the portion of their cup.

11:7 For Yahweh is righteous,

He loves righteousness;

His countenance beholds the upright.

 

Psalms 12:

12:1 Help, Yahweh, for the godly man ceases!

For the faithful disappear from among the sons

of men.

12:2 They speak idly everyone with his

neighbor;

With flattering lips and a double heart they

speak.

12:3 May Yahweh cut off all flattering lips,

And the tongue that speaks proud things,

12:4 Who have said,

"With our tongue we will prevail;

Our lips are our own;

Who is lord over us?"

12:5 "For the oppression of the poor, for the

sighing of the needy,

Now I will arise," says Yahweh;

"I will set him in the safety for which he yearns."

12:6 The words of Yahweh are pure words,

Like silver tried in a furnace of earth,

Purified seven times.

12:7 You shall keep them, O Yahweh,

You shall preserve them from this generation

forever.

12:8 The wicked prowl on every side,

When vileness is exalted among the sons of men.

Psalms 13:

13:1 How long, O Yahweh? Will You forget me

forever?

How long will You hide Your face from me?

13:2 How long shall I take counsel in my spirit,

Having sorrow in my heart daily?

How long will my enemy be exalted over me?

13:3 Consider and hear me, O Yahweh my God;

Enlighten my eyes,

Lest I sleep the sleep of death;

13:4 Lest my enemy say,

"I have prevailed against him";

Lest those who trouble me rejoice when I am

moved.

13:5 But I have trusted in Your mercy;

My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.

13:6 I will sing to Yahweh,

Because He has dealt bountifully with me.

 

Psalms 14:

14:1 The fool has said in his heart,

"There is no God."

They are corrupt,

They have done abominable works,

There is none who does good.

14:2 Yahweh looks down from the sky upon the

children of men,

To see if there are any who understand, who seek

Yahweh.

14:3 They have all turned aside,

They have together become corrupt;

There is none who does good,

No, not one.

14:4 Have all the workers of iniquity no

knowledge,

Who eat up my people as they eat bread,

And do not call on Yahweh?

14:5 There they are in great fear,

For Yahweh is with the generation of the

righteous.

14:6 You shame the counsel of the poor,

But Yahweh is his refuge.

14:7 Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come

out of Zion!

When Yahweh brings back the captivity of His

people,

Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.

 

Psalms 15:

15:1 Yahweh, who may abide in Your

tabernacle?

Who may dwell in Your holy hill?

15:2 He who walks uprightly,

And works righteousness,

And speaks the truth in his heart;

15:3 He who does not backbite with his tongue,

Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor does he take

up a reproach against his friend;

15:4 In whose eyes a vile person is despised,

But he honors those who fear Yahweh;

He who swears to his own hurt and does not

change;

15:5 He who does not put out his money at

usury,

Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things shall never be moved.

 

Psalms 16:

16:1 Preserve me, O Yahweh, for in You I put

my trust.

16:2 O my spirit, you have said to Yahweh,

"You are my Lord,

My goodness is nothing apart from You."

16:3 As for the saints who are on the earth,

"They are the excellent ones, in whom is all my

delight."

16:4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied who

hasten after another god;

Their drink offerings of blood I will not offer,

Nor take up their names on my lips.

16:5 O Yahweh,You are the portion of my

inheritance and my cup;

You maintain my lot.

16:6 The lines have fallen to me in pleasant

places;

Yes, I have a good inheritance.

16:7 I will bless Yahweh who has given me

counsel;

My heart also instructs me in the night seasons.

16:8 I have set Yahweh always before me;

Because He is at my right hand I shall not be

moved.

16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory

rejoices;

My flesh also will rest in hope.

16:10 For You will not leave my body in Sheol,

Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see

corruption.

16:11 You will show me the path of life;

In Your presence is fullness of joy;

At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

 

Psalms 17:

17:1 Hear a just cause, O Yahweh,

Attend to my cry;

Give ear to my prayer which is not from

deceitful lips.

17:2 Let my vindication come from Your

presence;

Let Your eyes look on the things that are upright.

17:3 You have tested my heart;

You have visited me in the night;

You have tried me and have found nothing;

I have purposed that my mouth shall not

transgress.

17:4 Concerning the works of men,

By the word of Your lips,

I have kept away from the paths of the destroyer.

17:5 Uphold my steps in Your paths,

That my footsteps may not slip.

17:6 I have called upon You, for You will hear

me, O Yahweh;

Incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech.

17:7 Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by

Your right hand,

O You who save those who trust in You

From those who rise up against them.

17:8 Keep me as the apple of Your eye;

Hide me under the shadow of Your wings,

17:9 From the wicked who oppress me,

From my deadly enemies who surround me.

17:10 They have closed up their fat hearts;

With their mouths they speak proudly.

17:11 They have now surrounded us in our steps;

They have set their eyes, crouching down to the

earth,

17:12 As a lion is eager to tear his prey,

And like a young lion lurking in secret places.

17:13 Arise, O Yahweh,

Confront him, cast him down;

Deliver my life from the wicked with Your

sword,

17:14 With Your hand from men, O Yahweh,

From men of the world who have their portion in

this life,

And whose belly You fill with Your hidden

treasure.

They are satisfied with children,

And leave the rest of their possession for their

babes.

17:15 As for me, I will see Your face in

righteousness;

I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your

likeness.

 

Psalms 18:

18:1 I will love You, O Yahweh, my strength.

18:2 Yahweh is my rock and my fortress and my

deliverer;

My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;

My shield and the horn of my salvation, my

stronghold.

18:3 I will call upon Yahweh, who is worthy to

be praised;

So shall I be saved from my enemies.

18:4 The pangs of death surrounded me,

And the floods of ungodliness made me afraid.

18:5 The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me;

The snares of death confronted me.

18:6 In my distress I called upon Yahweh,

And cried out to my God;

He heard my voice from His temple,

And my cry came before Him, even to His ears.

18:7 Then the earth shook and trembled;

The foundations of the hills also quaked and

were shaken,

Because He was angry.

18:8 Smoke went up from His nostrils,

And devouring fire from His mouth;

Coals were kindled by it.

18:9 He bowed the clouds also, and came down

With darkness under His feet.

18:10 And He rode upon a cherub, and flew;

He flew upon the wings of the wind.

18:11 He made darkness His secret place;

His canopy around Him was dark waters

And thick clouds of the skies.

18:12 From the brightness before Him,

His thick clouds passed with hailstones and coals

of fire.

18:13 Yahweh thundered from the sky,

And the Most High uttered His voice,

Hailstones and coals of fire.

18:14 He sent out His arrows and scattered the

foe,

Lightnings in abundance, and He vanquished

them.

18:15 Then the channels of the sea were seen,

The foundations of the world were uncovered

At Your rebuke, O Yahweh,

At the blast of the breath of Your nostrils.

18:16 He sent from above, He took me;

He drew me out of many waters.

18:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy,

From those who hated me,

For they were too strong for me.

18:18 They confronted me in the day of my

calamity,

But Yahweh was my support.

18:19 He also brought me out into a broad place;

He delivered me because He delighted in me.

18:20 Yahweh rewarded me according to my

righteousness;

According to the cleanness of my hands

He has recompensed me.

18:21 For I have kept the ways of Yahweh,

And have not wickedly departed from my God.

18:22 For all His judgments were before me,

And I did not put away His statutes from me.

18:23 I was also blameless before Him,

And I kept myself from my iniquity.

18:24 Therefore Yahweh has recompensed me

according to my righteousness,

According to the cleanness of my hands in His

sight.

18:25 With the merciful You will show Yourself

merciful;

With a blameless man You will show Yourself

blameless;

18:26 With the pure You will show Yourself

pure;

And with the devious You will show Yourself

shrewd.

18:27 For You will save the humble people,

But will bring down haughty looks.

18:28 For You will light my lamp;

Yahweh my God will enlighten my darkness.

18:29 For by You I can run against a troop,

By my God I can leap over a wall.

18:30 As for Yahweh, His way is perfect;

The word of Yahweh is proven;

He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

18:31 For who is God, except Yahweh?

And who is a rock, except our God?

18:32 It is Yahweh who arms me with strength,

And makes my way perfect.

18:33 He makes my feet like the feet of deer,

And sets me on my high places.

18:34 He teaches my hands to make war,

So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.

18:35 You have also given me the shield of Your

salvation;

Your right hand has held me up,

Your gentleness has made me great.

18:36 You enlarged my path under me,

So my feet did not slip.

18:37 I have pursued my enemies and overtaken

them;

Neither did I turn back again till they were

destroyed.

18:38 I have wounded them,

So that they could not rise;

They have fallen under my feet.

18:39 For You have armed me with strength for

the battle;

You have subdued under me those who rose up

against me.

18:40 You have also given me the necks of my

enemies,

So that I destroyed those who hated me.

18:41 They cried out, but there was none to save;

Even to Yahweh, but He did not answer them.

18:42 Then I beat them as fine as the dust before

the wind;

I cast them out like dirt in the streets.

18:43 You have delivered me from the strivings

of the people;

You have made me the head of the nations;

A people I have not known shall serve me.

18:44 As soon as they hear of me they obey me;

The foreigners submit to me.

18:45 The foreigners fade away,

And come frightened from their hideouts.

18:46 Yahweh lives!

Blessed be my Rock!

Let the God of my salvation be exalted.

18:47 It is Yahweh who avenges me,

And subdues the peoples under me;

18:48 He delivers me from my enemies.

You also lift me up above those who rise against

me;

You have delivered me from the violent man.

18:49 Therefore I will give thanks to You, O

Yahweh, among the Gentiles,

And sing praises to Your name.

18:50 Great deliverance He gives to His king,

And shows mercy to His anointed,

To David and his descendants forevermore.

 

Psalms 19:

19:1 The skies declare the glory of Yahweh;

And the firmament shows His handiwork.

19:2 Day unto day utters speech,

And night unto night reveals knowledge.

19:3 There is no speech nor language

Where their voice is not heard.

19:4 Their line has gone out through all the

earth,

And their words to the end of the world.

In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun,

19:5 Which is like a bridegroom coming out of

his chamber,

And rejoices like a strong man to run its race.

19:6 Its rising is from one end of the sky,

And its circuit to the other end;

And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

19:7 The law of Yahweh is perfect, converting

the spirit;

The testimony of Yahweh is sure, making wise

the simple;

19:8 The statutes of Yahweh are right, rejoicing

the heart;

The commandment of Yahweh is pure,

enlightening the eyes;

19:9 The fear of Yahweh is clean, enduring

forever;

The judgments of Yahweh are true and righteous

altogether.

19:10 More to be desired are they than gold,

Yea, than much fine gold;

Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

19:11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned,

And in keeping them there is great reward.

19:12 Who can understand his errors?

Cleanse me from secret faults.

19:13 Keep back Your servant also from

presumptuous sins;

Let them not have dominion over me.

Then I shall be blameless,

And I shall be innocent of great transgression.

19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the

meditation of my heart

Be acceptable in Your sight,

O Yahweh, my strength and my Redeemer.

 

Psalms 20:

20:1 May Yahweh answer you in the day of

trouble;

May the name of the God of Jacob defend you;

20:2 May He send you help from the sanctuary,

And strengthen you out of Zion;

20:3 May He remember all your offerings,

And accept your burnt sacrifice. Selah

20:4 May He grant you according to your heart's

desire,

And fulfill all your purpose.

20:5 We will rejoice in your salvation,

And in the name of our God we will set up our

banners!

May Yahweh fulfill all your petitions.

20:6 Now I know that Yahweh saves His

anointed;

He will answer him from His holy heaven

With the saving strength of His right hand.

20:7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;

But we will remember the name of Yahweh our

God.

20:8 They have bowed down and fallen;

But we have risen and stand upright.

20:9 Save, Yahweh!

May the King answer us when we call.

 

Psalms 21:

21:1 The king shall have joy in Your strength, O

Yahweh;

And in Your salvation how greatly shall he

rejoice!

21:2 You have given him his heart's desire,

And have not withheld the request of his lips.

Selah

21:3 For You meet him with the blessings of

goodness;

You set a crown of pure gold upon his head.

21:4 He asked life from You, and You gave it to

him-

Length of days forever and ever.

21:5 His glory is great in Your salvation;

Honor and majesty You have placed upon him.

21:6 For You have made him most blessed

forever;

You have made him exceedingly glad with Your

presence.

21:7 For the king trusts in Yahweh,

And through the mercy of the Most High he shall

not be moved.

21:8 Your hand will find all Your enemies;

Your right hand will find those who hate You.

21:9 You shall make them as a fiery oven in the

time of Your anger;

Yahweh shall swallow them up in His wrath,

And the fire shall devour them.

21:10 Their offspring You shall destroy from the

earth,

And their descendants from among the sons of

men.

21:11 For they intended evil against You;

They devised a plot which they are not able to

perform.

21:12 Therefore You will make them turn their

back;

You will make ready Your arrows on Your string

toward their faces.

21:13 Be exalted, O Yahweh, in Your own

strength!

We will sing and praise Your power.

 

Psalms 22:

22:1 My God, My God, why have You forsaken

Me?

Why are You so far from helping Me,

And from the words of My groaning?

22:2 O My God, I cry in the daytime, but You do

not hear;

And in the night season, and am not silent.

22:3 But You are holy,

Enthroned in the praises of Israel.

22:4 Our fathers trusted in You;

They trusted, and You delivered them.

22:5 They cried to You, and were delivered;

They trusted in You, and were not ashamed.

22:6 But I am a worm, and no man;

Psalms 22:

A reproach of men, and despised by the people.

22:7 All those who see Me ridicule Me;

They shoot out the lip, they shake the head,

saying,

22:8 "He trusted in Yahweh, let Him rescue

Him;

Let Him deliver Him, since He delights in Him!"

22:9 But You are He who took Me out of the

womb;

You made Me trust while on My mother's

breasts.

22:10 I was cast upon You from birth.

From My mother's womb

You have been My God.

22:11 Be not far from Me,

For trouble is near;

For there is none to help.

22:12 Many bulls have surrounded Me;

Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled Me.

22:13 They gape at Me with their mouths,

Like a raging and roaring lion.

22:14 I am poured out like water,

And all My bones are out of joint;

My heart is like wax;

It has melted within Me.

22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd,

And My tongue clings to My jaws;

You have brought Me to the dust of death.

22:16 For dogs have surrounded Me; The

congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me.

They pierced My hands and My feet;

22:17 I can count all My bones.

They look and stare at Me.

22:18 They divide My garments among them,

And for My clothing they cast lots.

22:19 But You, O Yahweh, do not be far from

Me;

O My Strength, hasten to help Me!

22:20 Deliver Me from the sword,

My precious life from the power of the dog.

22:21 Save Me from the lion's mouth

And from the horns of the wild oxen!

You have answered Me.

22:22 I will declare Your name to My brethren;

In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.

22:23 You who fear Yahweh, praise Him!

All you descendants of Jacob, glorify Him,

And fear Him, all you offspring of Israel!

22:24 For He has not despised nor abhorred the

affliction of the afflicted;

Nor has He hidden His face from Him;

But when He cried to Him, He heard.

22:25 My praise shall be of You in the great

assembly;

I will pay My vows before those who fear Him.

22:26 The poor shall eat and be satisfied;

Those who seek Him will praise Yahweh.

Let your heart live forever!

22:27 All the ends of the world

Shall remember and turn to Yahweh,

And all the families of the nations

Shall worship before You.

22:28 For the kingdom is Yahweh’s,

And He rules over the nations.

22:29 All the prosperous of the earth

Shall eat and worship;

All those who go down to the dust

Shall bow before Him,

Even he who cannot keep himself alive.

22:30 A posterity shall serve Him.

It will be recounted of Yahweh to the next

generation,

22:31 They will come and declare His

righteousness to a people who will be born,

That He has done this.

 

Psalms 23:

23:1 Yahweh is my shepherd;

I shall not want.

23:2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;

He leads me beside the still waters.

23:3 He restores my spirit;

He leads me in the paths of righteousness

For His name's sake.

23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the

shadow of death,

I will fear no evil;

For You are with me;

Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

23:5 You prepare a table before me in the

presence of my enemies;

You anoint my head with oil;

My cup runs over.

23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

All the days of my life;

And I will dwell in the house of Yahweh

Forever.

 

Psalms 24:

24:1 The earth is Yahweh’s, and all its fullness,

The world and those who dwell therein.

Psalms 25:

24:2 For He has founded it upon the seas,

And established it upon the waters.

24:3 Who may ascend into the hill of Yahweh?

Or who may stand in His holy place?

24:4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,

Who has not lifted up his spirit to an idol,

Nor sworn deceitfully.

24:5 He shall receive blessing from Yahweh,

And righteousness from the God of his salvation.

24:6 This is Jacob, the generation of those who

seek Him,

Who seek Your face. Selah

24:7 Lift up your heads, O you gates!

And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!

And the King of glory shall come in.

24:8 Who is this King of glory?

Yahweh strong and mighty,

Yahweh mighty in battle.

24:9 Lift up your heads, O you gates!

Lift up, you everlasting doors!

And the King of glory shall come in.

24:10 Who is this King of glory?

Yahweh, God of hosts,

He is the King of glory. Selah

 

Psalms 25:

25:1 To You, O Yahweh, I lift up my spirit.

25:2 O my God, I trust in You;

Let me not be ashamed;

Let not my enemies triumph over me.

25:3 Indeed, let no one who waits on You be

ashamed;

Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously

without cause.

25:4 Show me Your ways, O Yahweh;

Teach me Your paths.

25:5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me,

For You are the God of my salvation;

On You I wait all the day.

25:6 Remember, O Yahweh, Your tender

mercies and Your loving kindnesses,

For they are from of old.

25:7 Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor

my transgressions;

According to Your mercy remember me,

For Your goodness' sake, O Yahweh.

25:8 Good and upright is Yahweh;

Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.

25:9 The humble He guides in justice,

And the humble He teaches His way.

25:10 All the paths of Yahweh are mercy and

truth,

To such as keep His covenant and His

testimonies.

25:11 For Your name's sake, O Yahweh,

Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.

25:12 Who is the man that fears Yahweh?

Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.

25:13 He himself shall dwell in prosperity,

And his descendants shall inherit the earth.

25:14 The secret of Yahweh is with those who

fear Him,

And He will show them His covenant.

25:15 My eyes are ever toward Yahweh,

For He shall pluck my feet out of the net.

25:16 Turn Yourself to me, and have mercy on

me,

For I am desolate and afflicted.

25:17 The troubles of my heart have enlarged;

Bring me out of my distresses!

25:18 Look on my affliction and my pain,

And forgive all my sins.

25:19 Consider my enemies, for they are many;

And they hate me with cruel hatred.

25:20 Keep my spirit, and deliver me;

Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in

You.

25:21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,

For I wait for You.

25:22 Redeem Israel, O Yahweh,

Out of all their troubles!

26:1 Vindicate me, O Yahweh,

For I have walked in my integrity.

I have also trusted in Yahweh;

I shall not slip.

26:2 Examine me, O Yahweh, and prove me;

Try my mind and my heart.

26:3 For Your loving kindness is before my eyes,

And I have walked in Your truth.

26:4 I have not sat with idolatrous mortals,

Nor will I go in with hypocrites.

26:5 I have hated the assembly of evildoers,

And will not sit with the wicked.

26:6 I will wash my hands in innocence;

So I will go about Your altar, O Yahweh,

26:7 That I may proclaim with the voice of

thanksgiving,

And tell of all Your wondrous works.

26:8 Yahweh, I have loved the habitation of

Your house,

And the place where Your glory dwells.

26:9 Do not gather my spirit with sinners,

Nor my life with bloodthirsty men,

26:10 In whose hands is a sinister scheme,

And whose right hand is full of bribes.

26:11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity;

Redeem me and be merciful to me.

26:12 My foot stands in an even place;

In the congregations I will bless Yahweh.

 

Psalms 27:

27:1 Yahweh is my light and my salvation;

Whom shall I fear?

Yahweh is the strength of my life;

Of whom shall I be afraid?

27:2 When the wicked came against me

To eat up my flesh,

My enemies and foes,

They stumbled and fell.

27:3 Though an army may encamp against me,

My heart shall not fear;

Though war should rise against me,

In this I will be confident.

27:4 One thing I have desired of Yahweh,

That will I seek:

That I may dwell in the house of Yahweh

All the days of my life,

To behold the beauty of Yahweh,

And to inquire in His temple.

27:5 For in the time of trouble

He shall hide me in His pavilion;

In the secret place of His tabernacle

He shall hide me and set me high upon a rock.

27:6 And now my head shall be lifted up above

my enemies all around me;

Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His

tabernacle;

I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to Yahweh.

27:7 Hear, O Yahweh, when I cry with my

voice!

Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

27:8 When You said, "Seek My face,"

My heart said to You, "Your face, Yahweh, I

will seek."

27:9 Do not hide Your face from me;

Do not turn Your servant away in anger;

You have been my help;

Do not leave me nor forsake me,

O God of my salvation.

27:10 When my father and my mother forsake

me,

Then Yahweh will take care of me.

27:11 Teach me Your way, O Yahweh,

And lead me in a smooth path, because of my

enemies.

27:12 Do not deliver me to the will of my

adversaries;

For false witnesses have risen against me,

And such as breathe out violence.

27:13 I would have lost heart, unless I had

believed

That I would see the goodness of Yahweh

In the land of the living.

27:14 Wait on Yahweh;

Be of good courage,

And He shall strengthen your heart;

Wait, I say, on Yahweh!

Psalms 28:

28:1 To You I will cry, O Yahweh my Rock:

Do not be silent to me,

Lest, if You are silent to me,

I become like those who go down to the pit.

28:2 Hear the voice of my supplications

When I cry to You,

When I lift up my hands toward Your holy

sanctuary.

28:3 Do not take me away with the wicked

And with the workers of iniquity,

Who speak peace to their neighbors,

But evil is in their hearts.

28:4 Give them according to their deeds,

And according to the wickedness of their

endeavors;

Give them according to the work of their hands;

Render to them what they deserve.

28:5 Because they do not regard the works of

Yahweh,

Nor the operation of His hands,

He shall destroy them

And not build them up.

28:6 Blessed be Yahweh,

Because He has heard the voice of my

supplications!

28:7 Yahweh is my strength and my shield;

My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped;

Therefore my heart greatly rejoices,

And with my song I will praise Him.

28:8 Yahweh is their strength,

And He is the saving refuge of His anointed.

28:9 Save Your people,

And bless Your inheritance;

Shepherd them also,

And bear them up forever.

 

Psalms 29:

29:1 Give unto Yahweh, O you mighty ones,

Give unto Yahweh glory and strength.

29:2 Give unto Yahweh the glory due to His

name;

Worship Yahweh in the beauty of holiness.

29:3 The voice of Yahweh is over the waters;

The God of glory thunders;

Yahweh is over many waters.

29:4 The voice of Yahweh is powerful;

The voice of Yahweh is full of majesty.

29:5 The voice of Yahweh breaks the cedars,

Yes, Yahweh splinters the cedars of Lebanon.

29:6 He makes them also skip like a calf,

Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.

29:7 The voice of Yahweh divides the flames of

fire.

29:8 The voice of Yahweh shakes the

wilderness;

Yahweh shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.

29:9 The voice of Yahweh makes the deer give

birth,

And strips the forests bare;

And in His temple everyone says, "Glory!"

29:10 Yahweh sat enthroned at the Flood,

And Yahweh sits as King forever.

29:11 Yahweh will give strength to His people;

Yahweh will bless His people with peace.

 

Psalms 30:

30:1 I will extol You, O Yahweh, for You have

lifted me up,

And have not let my foes rejoice over me.

30:2 O Yahweh my God, I cried out to You,

And You healed me.

30:3 O Yahweh, You brought my spirit up from

the grave;

You have kept me alive, that I should not go

down to the pit.

30:4 Sing praise to Yahweh, You saints of His,

And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy

name.

30:5 For His anger is but for a moment,

His favor is for life;

Weeping may endure for a night,

But joy comes in the morning.

30:6 Now in my prosperity I said,

"I shall never be moved."

30:7 Yahweh, by Your favor You have made my

mountain stand strong;

You hid Your face, and I was troubled.

30:8 I cried out to You, O Yahweh;

And to Yahweh I made supplication:

30:9 "What profit is there in my blood,

When I go down to the pit?

Will the dust praise You?

Will it declare Your truth?

30:10 Hear, O Yahweh, and have mercy on me;

Yahweh, be my helper!"

30:11 You have turned for me my mourning into

dancing;

You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me

with gladness,

30:12 To the end that my glory may sing praise

to You and not be silent. O Yahweh my God, I

will give thanks to You forever.

 

Psalms 31:

31:1 In You, O Yahweh, I put my trust;

Let me never be ashamed;

Deliver me in Your righteousness.

31:2 Bow down Your ear to me,

Deliver me speedily;

Be my rock of refuge,

A fortress of defense to save me.

31:3 For You are my rock and my fortress;

Therefore, for Your name's sake,

Lead me and guide me.

31:4 Pull me out of the net which they have

secretly laid for me,

For You are my strength.

31:5 Into Your hand I commit my spirit;

You have redeemed me, O Yahweh the God of

truth.

31:6 I have hated those who regard useless idols;

But I trust in Yahweh.

31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy,

For You have considered my trouble;

You have known my spirit in adversities,

31:8 And have not shut me up into the hand of

the enemy;

You have set my feet in a wide place.

31:9 Have mercy on me, O Yahweh, for I am in

trouble;

My eye wastes away with grief,

Yes, my spirit and my body!

31:10 For my life is spent with grief,

And my years with sighing;

My strength fails because of my iniquity,

And my bones waste away.

31:11 I am a reproach among all my enemies,

But especially among my neighbors,

And am repulsive to my acquaintances;

Those who see me outside flee from me.

31:12 I am forgotten like a dead man, out of

mind;

I am like a broken vessel.

31:13 For I hear the slander of many;

Fear is on every side;

While they take counsel together against me,

They scheme to take away my life.

31:14 But as for me, I trust in You, O Yahweh;

I say, "You are my God."

31:15 My times are in Your hand;

Deliver me from the hand of my enemies,

And from those who persecute me.

31:16 Make Your face shine upon Your servant;

Save me for Your mercies' sake.

31:17 Do not let me be ashamed, O Yahweh, for

I have called upon You;

Let the wicked be ashamed;

Let them be silent in the grave.

31:18 Let the lying lips be put to silence,

Which speak insolent things proudly and

contemptuously against the righteous.

31:19 Oh, how great is Your goodness,

Which You have laid up for those who fear You,

Which You have prepared for those who trust in

You

In the presence of the sons of men!

31:20 You shall hide them in the secret place of

Your presence

From the plots of man;

You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion

From the strife of tongues.

31:21 Blessed be Yahweh,

For He has shown me His marvelous kindness in

a strong city!

31:22 For I said in my haste,

"I am cut off from before Your eyes";

Nevertheless You heard the voice of my

supplications

When I cried out to You.

31:23 Oh, love Yahweh, all you His saints!

For Yahweh preserves the faithful,

And fully repays the proud person.

31:24 Be of good courage,

And He shall strengthen your heart,

All you who hope in Yahweh.

 

Psalms 32:

32:1 Blessed is he whose transgression is

forgiven,

Whose sin is covered.

32:2 Blessed is the man to whom Yahweh does

not impute iniquity,

And in whose spirit there is no deceit.

32:3 When I kept silent, my bones grew old

Through my groaning all the day long.

32:4 For day and night Your hand was heavy

upon me;

My vitality was turned into the drought of

summer. Selah

32:5 I acknowledged my sin to You,

And my iniquity I have not hidden.

I said, "I will confess my transgressions to

Yahweh,"

And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah

32:6 For this cause everyone who is godly shall

pray to You

In a time when You may be found;

Surely in a flood of great waters

They shall not come near him.

32:7 You are my hiding place;

You shall preserve me from trouble;

You shall surround me with songs of

deliverance. Selah

32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way

you should go;

I will guide you with My eye.

32:9 Do not be like the horse or like the mule,

Which have no understanding,

Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle,

Else they will not come near you.

32:10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked;

But he who trusts in Yahweh, mercy shall

surround him.

32:11 Be glad in Yahweh and rejoice, you

righteous;

And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

 

Psalms 33:

33:1 Rejoice in Yahweh, O you righteous!

For praise from the upright is beautiful.

33:2 Praise Yahweh with the harp;

Make melody to Him with an instrument of ten

strings.

33:3 Sing to Him a new song;

Play skillfully with a shout of joy.

33:4 For the word of Yahweh is right,

And all His work is done in truth.

33:5 He loves righteousness and justice;

The earth is full of the goodness of Yahweh.

33:6 By the word of Yahweh the skies were

made,

And all the host of them by the breath of His

mouth.

33:7 He gathers the waters of the sea together as

a heap;

He lays up the deep in storehouses.

33:8 Let all the earth fear Yahweh;

Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe

of Him.

33:9 For He spoke, and it was done;

He commanded, and it stood fast.

33:10 Yahweh brings the counsel of the nations

to nothing;

He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.

33:11 The counsel of Yahweh stands forever,

The plans of His heart to all generations.

33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is

Yahweh,

The people He has chosen as His own

inheritance.

33:13 Yahweh looks from heaven;

He sees all the sons of men.

33:14 From the place of His dwelling He looks

On all the inhabitants of the earth;

33:15 He fashions their hearts individually;

He considers all their works.

33:16 No king is saved by the multitude of an

army;

A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.

33:17 A horse is a vain hope for safety;

Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.

33:18 Behold, the eye of Yahweh is on those

who fear Him,

On those who hope in His mercy,

33:19 To deliver their body from death,

And to keep them alive in famine.

33:20 Our spirit waits for Yahweh;

He is our help and our shield.

33:21 For our heart shall rejoice in Him,

Because we have trusted in His holy name.

33:22 Let Your mercy, O Yahweh, be upon us,

Just as we hope in You.

 

Psalms 34:

34:1 I will bless Yahweh at all times;

His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

34:2 My spirit shall make its boast in Yahweh;

The humble shall hear of it and be glad.

34:3 Oh, magnify Yahweh with me,

And let us exalt His name together.

34:4 I sought Yahweh, and He heard me,

And delivered me from all my fears.

34:5 They looked to Him and were radiant,

And their faces were not ashamed.

34:6 This poor man cried out, and Yahweh heard

him, And saved him out of all his troubles.

34:7 The angel of Yahweh encamps all around

those who fear Him,

And delivers them.

34:8 Oh, taste and see that Yahweh is good;

Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

34:9 Oh, fear Yahweh, you His saints!

There is no want to those who fear Him.

34:10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger;

But those who seek Yahweh shall not lack any

good thing.

34:11 Come, you children, listen to me;

I will teach you the fear of Yahweh.

34:12 Who is the man who desires life,

And loves many days, that he may see good?

34:13 Keep your tongue from evil,

And your lips from speaking deceit.

34:14 Depart from evil and do good;

Seek peace and pursue it.

34:15 The eyes of Yahweh are on the righteous,

And His ears are open to their cry.

34:16 The face of Yahweh is against those who

do evil,

To cut off the remembrance of them from the

earth.

34:17 The righteous cry out, and Yahweh hears,

And delivers them out of all their troubles.

34:18 Yahweh is near to those who have a

broken heart,

And saves such as have a contrite spirit.

34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,

But Yahweh delivers him out of them all.

34:20 He guards all his bones;

Not one of them is broken.

34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked,

And those who hate the righteous shall be

condemned.

34:22 Yahweh redeems the spirit of His servants,

And none of those who trust in Him shall be

condemned.

 

Psalms 35:

35:1 Plead my cause, O Yahweh, with those who

strive with me;

Fight against those who fight against me.

35:2 Take hold of shield and buckler,

And stand up for my help.

35:3 Also draw out the spear,

And stop those who pursue me.

Say to my spirit,

"I am your salvation."

35:4 Let those be put to shame and brought to

dishonor

Who seek after my life;

Let those be turned back and brought to

confusion

Who plot my hurt.

35:5 Let them be like chaff before the wind,

And let the angel of Yahweh chase them.

35:6 Let their way be dark and slippery,

And let the angel of Yahweh pursue them.

35:7 For without cause they have hidden their

net for me in a pit,

Which they have dug without cause for my life.

35:8 Let destruction come upon him

unexpectedly,

And let his net that he has hidden catch himself;

Into that very destruction let him fall.

35:9 And my spirit shall be joyful in Yahweh;

It shall rejoice in His salvation.

35:10 All my bones shall say,

"Yahweh, who is like You,

Delivering the poor from him who is too strong

for him,

Yes, the poor and the needy from him who

plunders him?"

35:11 Fierce witnesses rise up;

They ask me things that I do not know.

35:12 They reward me evil for good,

To the sorrow of my spirit.

35:13 But as for me, when they were sick,

My clothing was sackcloth;

I humbled myself with fasting;

And my prayer would return to my own heart.

35:14 I paced about as though he were my friend

or brother;

I bowed down heavily, as one who mourns for

his mother.

35:15 But in my adversity they rejoiced

And gathered together;

Attackers gathered against me,

And I did not know it;

They tore at me and did not cease;

35:16 With ungodly mockers at feasts

They gnashed at me with their teeth.

35:17 Lord, how long will You look on?

Rescue me from their destructions,

My precious life from the lions.

35:18 I will give You thanks in the great

assembly;

I will praise You among many people.

35:19 Let them not rejoice over me who are

wrongfully my enemies;

Nor let them wink with the eye who hate me

without a cause.

35:20 For they do not speak peace,

But they devise deceitful matters

Against the quiet ones in the land.

35:21 They also opened their mouth wide against

me,

And said,

"Aha, aha!

Our eyes have seen it."

35:22 This You have seen, O Yahweh;

Do not keep silence.

O Lord, do not be far from me.

35:23 Stir up Yourself, and awake to my

vindication,

To my cause, my God and my Lord.

35:24 Vindicate me, O Yahweh my God,

according to Your righteousness;

And let them not rejoice over me.

35:25 Let them not say in their hearts, "Ah, so

we would have it!"

Let them not say, "We have swallowed him up."

35:26 Let them be ashamed and brought to

mutual confusion

Who rejoice at my hurt;

Let them be clothed with shame and dishonor

Who exalt themselves against me.

35:27 Let them shout for joy and be glad,

Who favor my righteous cause;

And let them say continually,

"Let Yahweh be magnified,

Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His

servant."

35:28 And my tongue shall speak of Your

righteousness

And of Your praise all the day long.

 

Psalms 36:

36:1 An oracle within my heart concerning the

transgression of the wicked:

There is no fear of Yahweh before his eyes.

36:2 For he flatters himself in his own eyes,

When he finds out his iniquity and when he

hates.

36:3 The words of his mouth are wickedness and

deceit;

He has ceased to be wise and to do good.

36:4 He devises wickedness on his bed;

He sets himself in a way that is not good;

He does not abhor evil.

36:5 Your mercy, O Yahweh, is in the heavens;

Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

36:6 Your righteousness is like the great

mountains;

Your judgments are a great deep;

O Yahweh, You preserve man and beast.

36:7 How precious is Your loving kindness, O

Yahweh!

Therefore the children of men put their trust

under the shadow of Your wings.

36:8 They are abundantly satisfied with the

fullness of Your house,

And You give them drink from the river of Your

pleasures.

36:9 For with You is the fountain of life;

In Your light we see light.

36:10 Oh, continue Your loving kindness to those

who know You,

And Your righteousness to the upright in heart.

36:11 Let not the foot of pride come against me,

And let not the hand of the wicked drive me

away.

36:12 There the workers of iniquity have fallen;

They have been cast down and are not able to

rise.

 

Psalms 37:

37:1 Do not fret because of evildoers,

Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.

37:2 For they shall soon be cut down like the

grass,

And wither as the green herb.

37:3 Trust in Yahweh, and do good;

Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.

37:4 Delight yourself also in Yahweh,

And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

37:5 Commit your way to Yahweh,

Trust also in Him,

And He shall bring it to pass.

37:6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as

the light,

And your justice as the noonday.

37:7 Rest in Yahweh, and wait patiently for

Him;

Do not fret because of him who prospers in his

way,

Because of the man who brings wicked schemes

to pass.

37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;

Do not fret-it only causes harm.

37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off;

But those who wait on Yahweh,

They shall inherit the earth.

37:10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall

be no more;

Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,

But it shall be no more.

37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth,

And shall delight themselves in the abundance of

peace.

37:12 The wicked plots against the just,

And gnashes at him with his teeth.

37:13 Yahweh laughs at him,

For He sees that his day is coming.

37:14 The wicked have drawn the sword

And have bent their bow,

To cast down the poor and needy,

To slay those who are of upright conduct.

37:15 Their sword shall enter their own heart,

And their bows shall be broken.

37:16 A little that a righteous man has

Is better than the riches of many wicked.

37:17 For the arms of the wicked shall be

broken,

But Yahweh upholds the righteous.

37:18 Yahweh knows the days of the upright,

And their inheritance shall be forever.

37:19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time,

And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

37:20 But the wicked shall perish;

And the enemies of Yahweh,

Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish.

Into smoke they shall vanish away.

37:21 The wicked borrows and does not repay,

But the righteous shows mercy and gives.

37:22 For those blessed by Him shall inherit the

earth,

But those cursed by Him shall be cut off.

37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by

Yahweh,

And He delights in his way.

37:24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast

down;

For Yahweh upholds him with His hand.

37:25 I have been young, and now am old;

Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken,

Nor his descendants begging bread.

37:26 He is ever merciful, and lends;

And his descendants are blessed.

37:27 Depart from evil, and do good;

And dwell forevermore.

37:28 For Yahweh loves justice,

And does not forsake His saints;

They are preserved forever,

But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut

off.

37:29 The righteous shall inherit the land,

And dwell in it forever.

37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaks

wisdom,

And his tongue talks of justice.

37:31 The law of his God is in his heart;

None of his steps shall slide.

37:32 The wicked watches the righteous,

And seeks to slay him.

37:33 Yahweh will not leave him in his hand,

Nor condemn him when he is judged.

37:34 Wait on Yahweh,

And keep His way,

And He shall exalt you to inherit the land;

When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.

37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power,

And spreading himself like a native green tree.

37:36 Yet he passed away, and behold, he was

no more;

Indeed I sought him, but he could not be found.

37:37 Mark the blameless man, and observe the

upright;

For the future of that man is peace.

37:38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed

together;

The future of the wicked shall be cut off.

37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is from

Yahweh;

He is their strength in the time of trouble.

37:40 And Yahweh shall help them and deliver

them;

He shall deliver them from the wicked,

And save them,

Because they trust in Him.

Psalms 38:

38:1 O Yahweh, do not rebuke me in Your

wrath,

Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure!

38:2 For Your arrows pierce me deeply,

And Your hand presses me down.

38:3 There is no soundness in my flesh

Because of Your anger,

Nor any health in my bones

Because of my sin.

38:4 For my iniquities have gone over my head;

Like a heavy burden they are too heavy for me.

38:5 My wounds are foul and festering

Because of my foolishness.

38:6 I am troubled, I am bowed down greatly;

I go mourning all the day long.

38:7 For my loins are full of inflammation,

And there is no soundness in my flesh.

38:8 I am feeble and severely broken;

I groan because of the turmoil of my heart.

38:9 Lord, all my desire is before You;

And my sighing is not hidden from You.

38:10 My heart pants, my strength fails me;

As for the light of my eyes, it also has gone from

me.

38:11 My loved ones and my friends stand aloof

from my plague, And my relatives stand afar off.

38:12 Those also who seek my life lay snares for

me;

Those who seek my hurt speak of destruction,

And plan deception all the day long.

38:13 But I, like a deaf man, do not hear;

And I am like a mute who does not open his

mouth.

38:14 Thus I am like a man who does not hear,

And in whose mouth is no response.

38:15 For in You, O Yahweh, I hope;

You will hear, O Lord my God.

38:16 For I said, "Hear me, lest they rejoice over

me,

Lest, when my foot slips, they exalt themselves

against me."

38:17 For I am ready to fall,

And my sorrow is continually before me.

38:18 For I will declare my iniquity;

I will be in anguish over my sin.

38:19 But my enemies are vigorous, and they are

strong;

And those who hate me wrongfully have

multiplied.

38:20 Those also who render evil for good,

They are my adversaries, because I follow what

is good.

38:21 Do not forsake me, O Yahweh;

O my God, be not far from me!

38:22 Make haste to help me,

O Lord, my salvation!

 

Psalms 39:

39:1 I said, "I will guard my ways,

Lest I sin with my tongue;

I will restrain my mouth with a muzzle,

While the wicked are before me."

39:2 I was mute with silence,

I held my peace even from good;

And my sorrow was stirred up.

39:3 My heart was hot within me;

While I was musing, the fire burned.

Then I spoke with my tongue:

39:4 "Yahweh, make me to know my end,

And what is the measure of my days,

That I may know how frail I am.

39:5 Indeed, You have made my days as

handbreadths,

And my age is as nothing before You;

Certainly every man at his best state is but vapor.

Selah

39:6 Surely every man walks about like a

shadow;

Surely they busy themselves in vain;

He heaps up riches,

And does not know who will gather them.

39:7 "And now, Lord, what do I wait for?

My hope is in You.

39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions;

Do not make me the reproach of the foolish.

39:9 I was mute, I did not open my mouth,

Because it was You who did it.

39:10 Remove Your plague from me;

I am consumed by the blow of Your hand.

39:11 When with rebukes You correct man for

iniquity,

You make his beauty melt away like a moth;

Surely every man is vapor. Selah

39:12 "Hear my prayer, O Yahweh,

And give ear to my cry;

Do not be silent at my tears;

For I am a stranger with You,

A sojourner, as all my fathers were.

39:13 Remove Your gaze from me, that I may

regain strength,

Before I go away and am no more."

 

Psalms 40:

40:1 I waited patiently for Yahweh;

And He inclined to me,

And heard my cry.

40:2 He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,

Out of the miry clay,

And set my feet upon a rock,

And established my steps.

40:3 He has put a new song in my mouth-

Praise to our God;

Many will see it and fear,

And will trust in Yahweh.

40:4 Blessed is that man who makes Yahweh his

trust,

And does not respect the proud, nor such as turn

aside to lies.

40:5 Many, O Yahweh my God, are Your

wonderful works

Which You have done;

And Your thoughts toward us

Cannot be recounted to You in order;

If I would declare and speak of them,

They are more than can be numbered.

40:6 Sacrifice and offering You did not desire;

My ears You have opened.

Burnt offering and sin offering You did not

require.

40:7 Then I said, "Behold, I come;

In the scroll of the book it is written of me.

40:8 I delight to do Your will, O my God,

And Your law is within my heart."

40:9 I have proclaimed the good news of

righteousness

In the great assembly;

Indeed, I do not restrain my lips,

O Yahweh, You Yourself know.

40:10 I have not hidden Your righteousness

within my heart;

I have declared Your faithfulness and Your

salvation;

I have not concealed Your loving kindness and

Your truth

From the great assembly.

 

Psalms 41:

40:11 Do not withhold Your tender mercies from

me, O Yahweh;

Let Your lovingkindness and Your truth

continually preserve me.

40:12 For innumerable evils have surrounded

me;

My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am

not able to look up;

They are more than the hairs of my head;

Therefore my heart fails me.

40:13 Be pleased, O Yahweh, to deliver me;

O Yahweh, make haste to help me!

40:14 Let them be ashamed and brought to

mutual confusion

Who seek to destroy my life;

Let them be driven backward and brought to

dishonor

Who wish me evil.

40:15 Let them be confounded because of their

shame,

Who say to me, "Aha, aha!"

40:16 Let all those who seek You rejoice and be

glad in You;

Let such as love Your salvation say continually,

"Yahweh be magnified!"

40:17 But I am poor and needy;

Yet Yahweh thinks upon me.

You are my help and my deliverer;

Do not delay, O my God.

 

Psalms 41:

41:1 Blessed is he who considers the poor;

Yahweh will deliver him in time of trouble.

41:2 Yahweh will preserve him and keep him

alive,

And he will be blessed on the earth;

You will not deliver him to the will of his

enemies.

41:3 Yahweh will strengthen him on his bed of

illness;

You will sustain him on his sickbed.

41:4 I said, "Yahweh, be merciful to me;

Heal my body, for I have sinned against You."

41:5 My enemies speak evil of me:

"When will he die, and his name perish?"

41:6 And if he comes to see me, he speaks lies;

His heart gathers iniquity to itself;

When he goes out, he tells it.

41:7 All who hate me whisper together against

me;

Against me they devise my hurt.

41:8 "An evil disease," they say, "clings to him.

And now that he lies down, he will rise up no

more."

41:9 Even my own familiar friend in whom I

trusted, Who ate my bread,

Has lifted up his heel against me.

41:10 But You, O Yahweh, be merciful to me,

and raise me up, That I may repay them.

41:11 By this I know that You are well pleased

with me,

Because my enemy does not triumph over me.

41:12 As for me, You uphold me in my integrity,

And set me before Your face forever.

41:13 Blessed be Yahweh the God of Israel

From everlasting to everlasting!

Amam and Amam.

Psalms 42:

42:1 As the deer pants for the water brooks,

So pants my spirit for You, O Yahweh.

42:2 My spirit thirsts for Yahweh, for the living

God.

When shall I come and appear before Yahweh?

42:3 My tears have been my food day and night,

While they continually say to me,

"Where is your God?"

42:4 When I remember these things,

I pour out my spirit within me.

For I used to go with the multitude;

I went with them to the house of Yahweh,

With the voice of joy and praise,

With a multitude that kept a pilgrim feast.

42:5 Why are you cast down, O my spirit?

And why are you disquieted within me?

Hope in Yahweh, for I shall yet praise Him

For the help of His countenance.

42:6 O my God, my spirit is cast down within

me;

Therefore I will remember You from the land of

the Jordan,

And from the heights of Hermon,

From the Hill Mizar.

42:7 Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your

waterfalls;

All Your waves and billows have gone over me.

42:8 Yahweh will command His loving kindness

in the daytime,

And in the night His song shall be with me-

A prayer to the God of my life.

42:9 I will say to Yahweh my Rock,

"Why have You forgotten me?

Why do I go mourning because of the oppression

of the enemy?"

42:10 As with a breaking of my bones,

My enemies reproach me,

While they say to me all day long,

"Where is your God?"

42:11 Why are you cast down, O my spirit?

And why are you disquieted within me?

Hope in Yahweh;

For I shall yet praise Him,

The help of my countenance and my God.

 

Psalms 43:

43:1 Vindicate me, O Yahweh,

And plead my cause against an ungodly nation;

Oh, deliver me from the deceitful and unjust

man!

43:2 For You are the God of my strength;

Why do You cast me off?

Why do I go mourning because of the oppression

of the enemy?

43:3 Oh, send out Your light and Your truth!

Let them lead me;

Let them bring me to Your holy hill

And to Your tabernacle.

43:4 Then I will go to the altar of Yahweh,

To Yahweh my exceeding joy;

And on the harp I will praise You,

O Yahweh, my God.

43:5 Why are you cast down, O my spirit?

And why are you disquieted within me?

Hope in Yahweh;

For I shall yet praise Him,

The help of my countenance and my God.

 

Psalms 44:

44:1 We have heard with our ears, O Yahweh,

Our fathers have told us,

The deeds You did in their days,

In days of old:

44:2 You drove out the nations with Your hand,

But them You planted;

You afflicted the peoples, and cast them out.

44:3 For they did not gain possession of the land

by their own sword,

Nor did their own arm save them;

But it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the

light of Your countenance,

Because You favored them.

44:4 You are my King, O Yahweh;

Command victories for Jacob.

44:5 Through You we will push down our

enemies;

Through Your name we will trample those who

rise up against us.

44:6 For I will not trust in my bow,

Nor shall my sword save me.

44:7 But You have saved us from our enemies,

And have put to shame those who hated us.

44:8 In Yahweh we boast all day long,

And praise Your name forever. Selah

44:9 But You have cast us off and put us to

shame,

And You do not go out with our armies.

44:10 You make us turn back from the enemy,

And those who hate us have taken spoil for

themselves.

44:11 You have given us up like sheep intended

for food,

And have scattered us among the nations.

44:12 You sell Your people for next to nothing,

And are not enriched by selling them.

44:13 You make us a reproach to our neighbors,

A scorn and a derision to those all around us.

44:14 You make us a byword among the nations,

A shaking of the head among the peoples.

44:15 My dishonor is continually before me,

And the shame of my face has covered me,

44:16 Because of the voice of him who

reproaches and reviles,

Because of the enemy and the avenger.

44:17 All this has come upon us;

But we have not forgotten You,

Nor have we dealt falsely with Your covenant.

44:18 Our heart has not turned back,

Nor have our steps departed from Your way;

44:19 But You have severely broken us in the

place of jackals,

And covered us with the shadow of death.

44:20 If we had forgotten the name of our God,

Or stretched out our hands to a foreign god,

44:21 Would not Yahweh search this out?

For He knows the secrets of the heart.

44:22 Yet for Your sake we are killed all day

long;

We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

44:23 Awake! Why do You sleep, O Lord?

Arise! Do not cast us off forever.

44:24 Why do You hide Your face,

And forget our affliction and our oppression?

44:25 For our body is bowed down to the dust;

Our body clings to the ground.

44:26 Arise for our help,

And redeem us for Your mercies' sake.

 

Psalms 45:

45:1 My heart is overflowing with a good theme;

I recite my composition concerning the King;

My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

45:2 You are fairer than the sons of men;

Grace is poured upon Your lips;

Therefore Yahweh has blessed You forever.

45:3 Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O

Mighty One,

With Your glory and Your majesty.

45:4 And in Your majesty ride prosperously

because of truth, humility, and righteousness;

And Your right hand shall teach You awesome

things.

45:5 Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the

King's enemies;

The peoples fall under You.

45:6 Your throne, O Yahweh, is forever and

ever;

A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your

kingdom.

45:7 You love righteousness and hate

wickedness;

Therefore Yahweh, Your God, has anointed You

With the oil of gladness more than Your

companions.

45:8 All Your garments are scented with myrrh

and aloes and cassia,

Out of the ivory palaces, by which they have

made You glad.

45:9 Kings' daughters are among Your honorable

women;

At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from

Ophir.

45:10 Listen, O daughter,

Consider and incline your ear;

Forget your own people also, and your father's

house;

45:11 So the King will greatly desire your

beauty;

Because He is your Lord, worship Him.

45:12 And the daughter of Tyre will come with a

gift;

The rich among the people will seek your favor.

45:13 The royal daughter is all glorious within

the palace;

Her clothing is woven with gold.

45:14 She shall be brought to the King in robes

of many colors;

The virgins, her companions who follow her,

shall be brought to You.

45:15 With gladness and rejoicing they shall be

brought;

They shall enter the King's palace.

45:16 Instead of Your fathers shall be Your sons,

Whom You shall make princes in all the earth.

45:17 I will make Your name to be remembered

in all generations;

Therefore the people shall praise You forever

and ever.

 

Psalms 46:

46:1 Yahweh is our refuge and strength,

A very present help in trouble.

46:2 Therefore we will not fear,

Even though the earth be removed,

And though the mountains be carried into the

midst of the sea;

46:3 Though its waters roar and be troubled,

Though the mountains shake with its swelling.

Selah

46:4 There is a river whose streams shall make

glad the city of Yahweh,

The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most

High.

46:5 Yahweh is in the midst of her, she shall not

be moved;

Yahweh shall help her, just at the break of dawn.

46:6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were

moved;

He uttered His voice, the earth melted.

46:7 Yahweh, God of hosts is with us;

The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

46:8 Come, behold the works of Yahweh,

Who has made desolations in the earth.

46:9 He makes wars cease to the end of the

earth;

He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;

He burns the chariot in the fire.

46:10 Be still, and know that I am Yahweh;

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth!

46:11 Yahweh, God of hosts is with us;

The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

 

Psalms 47:

47:1 Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples!

Shout to Yahweh with the voice of triumph!

47:2 For Yahweh Most High is awesome;

He is a great King over all the earth.

47:3 He will subdue the peoples under us,

And the nations under our feet.

47:4 He will choose our inheritance for us,

The excellence of Jacob whom He loves. Selah

47:5 Yahweh has gone up with a shout,

Yahweh with the sound of a trumpet.

47:6 Sing praises to Yahweh, sing praises!

Sing praises to our King, sing praises!

47:7 For Yahweh is the King of all the earth;

Sing praises with understanding.

47:8 Yahweh reigns over the nations;

Yahweh sits on His holy throne.

47:9 The princes of the people have gathered

together,

The people of the God of Abraham.

For the shields of the earth belong to Yahweh;

He is greatly exalted.

 

Psalms 48:

48:1 Great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised

In the city of our God,

In His holy mountain.

48:2 Beautiful in elevation,

The joy of the whole earth,

Is Mount Zion on the sides of the north,

The city of the great King.

48:3 Yahweh is in her palaces;

He is known as her refuge.

48:4 For behold, the kings assembled,

They passed by together.

48:5 They saw it, and so they marveled;

They were troubled, they hastened away.

48:6 Fear took hold of them there,

And pain, as of a woman in birth pangs,

48:7 As when You break the ships of Tarshish

With an east wind.

48:8 As we have heard,

So we have seen

In the city of Yahweh, God of hosts,

In the city of our God:

Yahweh will establish it forever. Selah

48:9 We have thought, O Yahweh, on Your

lovingkindness,

In the midst of Your temple.

48:10 According to Your name, O Yahweh,

So is Your praise to the ends of the earth;

Your right hand is full of righteousness.

48:11 Let Mount Zion rejoice,

Let the daughters of Judah be glad,

Because of Your judgments.

48:12 Walk about Zion,

And go all around her.

Count her towers;

48:13 Mark well her bulwarks;

Consider her palaces;

That you may tell it to the generation following.

48:14 For this is Yahweh,

Our God forever and ever;

He will be our guide

Even to death.

 

Psalms 49:

49:1 Hear this, all peoples;

Give ear, all inhabitants of the world,

49:2 Both low and high,

Rich and poor together.

49:3 My mouth shall speak wisdom,

And the meditation of my heart shall give

understanding.

49:4 I will incline my ear to a proverb;

I will disclose my dark saying on the harp.

49:5 Why should I fear in the days of evil,

When the iniquity at my heels surrounds me?

49:6 Those who trust in their wealth

And boast in the multitude of their riches,

49:7 None of them can by any means redeem his

brother,

Nor give to Yahweh a ransom for him-

49:8 For the redemption of their spirits is costly,

And it shall cease forever-

49:9 That he should continue to live eternally,

And not see the Pit.

49:10 For he sees wise men die;

Likewise the fool and the senseless person

perish,

And leave their wealth to others.

49:11 Their inner thought is that their houses

will last forever,

Their dwelling places to all generations;

They call their lands after their own names.

49:12 Nevertheless man, though in honor, does

not remain;

He is like the beasts that perish.

49:13 This is the way of those who are foolish,

And of their posterity who approve their sayings.

Selah

49:14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave;

Death shall feed on them;

The upright shall have dominion over them in

the morning;

And their beauty shall be consumed in the grave,

far from their dwelling.

49:15 But Yahweh will redeem my spirit from

the power of the grave,

For He shall receive me. Selah

49:16 Do not be afraid when one becomes rich,

When the glory of his house is increased;

49:17 For when he dies he shall carry nothing

away;

His glory shall not descend after him.

49:18 Though while he lives he blesses himself

(For men will praise you when you do well for

yourself),

49:19 He shall go to the generation of his

fathers;

They shall never see light.

49:20 A man who is in honor, yet does not

understand,

Is like the beasts that perish.

 

Psalms 50:

50:1 The Mighty One, Yahweh,

Has spoken and called the earth

From the rising of the sun to its going down.

50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty,

Yahweh will shine forth.

50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep

silent;

A fire shall devour before Him,

And it shall be very tempestuous all around Him.

50:4 He shall call to the heavens from above,

And to the earth, that He may judge His people:

50:5 "Gather My saints together to Me,

Those who have made a covenant with Me by

sacrifice."

50:6 Let the heavens declare His righteousness,

For Yahweh Himself is Judge. Selah

50:7 "Hear, O My people, and I will speak,

O Israel, and I will testify against you;

I am Yahweh, your God!

50:8 I will not rebuke you for your sacrifices

Or your burnt offerings,

Which are continually before Me.

50:9 I will not take a bull from your house,

Nor goats out of your folds.

50:10 For every beast of the forest is Mine,

And the cattle on a thousand hills.

50:11 I know all the birds of the mountains,

And the wild beasts of the field are Mine.

50:12 "If I were hungry, I would not tell you;

For the world is Mine, and all its fullness.

50:13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls,

Or drink the blood of goats?

50:14 Offer to Yahweh thanksgiving,

And pay your vows to the Most High.

50:15 Call upon Me in the day of trouble;

I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me."

50:16 But to the wicked Yahweh says:

"What right have you to declare My statutes,

Or take My covenant in your mouth,

50:17 Seeing you hate instruction

And cast My words behind you?

50:18 When you saw a thief, you consented with

him, And have been a partaker with adulterers.

50:19 You give your mouth to evil,

And your tongue frames deceit.

50:20 You sit and speak against your brother;

You slander your own mother's son.

50:21 These things you have done, and I kept

silent;

You thought that I was altogether like you;

But I will rebuke you,

And set them in order before your eyes.

50:22 "Now consider this, you who forget

Yahweh,

Lest I tear you in pieces,

And there be none to deliver:

50:23 Whoever offers praise glorifies Me;

And to him who orders his conduct aright

I will show the salvation of Yahweh."

 

Psalms 51:

51:1 Have mercy upon me, O Yahweh,

According to Your lovingkindness;

According to the multitude of Your tender

mercies,

Blot out my transgressions.

51:2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,

And cleanse me from my sin.

51:3 For I acknowledge my transgressions,

And my sin is always before me.

51:4 Against You, You only, have I sinned,

And done this evil in Your sight-

That You may be found just when You speak,

And blameless when You judge.

51:5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,

And in sin my mother conceived me.

51:6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward

parts,

And in the hidden part You will make me to

know wisdom.

51:7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be pure;

Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

51:8 Make me hear joy and gladness,

That the bones You have broken may rejoice.

51:9 Hide Your face from my sins,

And blot out all my iniquities.

51:10 Create in me a pure heart, O Yahweh,

And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

51:11 Do not cast me away from Your presence,

And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.

51:12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,

And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.

51:13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,

And sinners shall be converted to You.

51:14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O

Yahweh,

The God of my salvation,

And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your

righteousness.

51:15 O Lord, open my lips,

And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.

51:16 For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I

would give it;

You do not delight in burnt offering.

51:17 The sacrifices of Yahweh are a broken

spirit, A broken and a contrite heart-

These, O Yahweh, You will not despise.

51:18 Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion;

Build the walls of Jerusalem.

51:19 Then You shall be pleased with the

sacrifices of righteousness,

With burnt offering and whole burnt offering;

Then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.

 

Psalms 52:

52:1 Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man?

The goodness of Yahweh endures continually.

52:2 Your tongue devises destruction,

Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.

52:3 You love evil more than good,

Lying rather than speaking righteousness. Selah

52:4 You love all devouring words,

You deceitful tongue.

52:5 Yahweh shall likewise destroy you forever;

He shall take you away, and pluck you out of

your dwelling place,

And uproot you from the land of the living.

Selah

52:6 The righteous also shall see and fear,

And shall laugh at him, saying,

52:7 "Here is the man who did not make Yahweh

his strength,

But trusted in the abundance of his riches,

And strengthened himself in his wickedness."

52:8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house

of Yahweh;

I trust in the mercy of Yahweh forever and ever.

52:9 I will praise You forever,

Because You have done it;

And in the presence of Your saints

I will wait on Your name, for it is good.

 

Psalms 53:

53:1 The fool has said in his heart,

"There is no God."

They are corrupt, and have done abominable

iniquity;

There is none who does good.

53:2 Yahweh looks down from heaven upon the

children of men,

To see if there are any who understand, who seek

Yahweh.

53:3 Every one of them has turned aside;

They have together become corrupt;

There is none who does good,

No, not one.

53:4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge,

Who eat up my people as they eat bread,

And do not call upon Yahweh?

53:5 There they are in great fear

Where no fear was,

For Yahweh has scattered the bones of him who

encamps against you;

You have put them to shame,

Because Yahweh has despised them.

53:6 Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come

out of Zion!

When Yahweh brings back the captivity of His

people,

Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.

 

Psalms 54:

54:1 Save me, O Yahweh, by Your name,

And vindicate me by Your strength.

54:2 Hear my prayer, O Yahweh;

Give ear to the words of my mouth.

54:3 For strangers have risen up against me,

And oppressors have sought after my life;

They have not set Yahweh before them. Selah

54:4 Behold, Yahweh is my helper;

Yahweh is with those who uphold my life.

54:5 He will repay my enemies for their evil.

Cut them off in Your truth.

54:6 I will freely sacrifice to You;

I will praise Your name, O Yahweh, for it is

good.

54:7 For He has delivered me out of all trouble;

And my eye has seen its desire upon my

enemies.

 

Psalms 55:

55:1 Give ear to my prayer, O Yahweh,

And do not hide Yourself from my supplication.

55:2 Attend to me, and hear me;

I am restless in my complaint, and moan noisily,

55:3 Because of the voice of the enemy,

Because of the oppression of the wicked;

For they bring down trouble upon me,

And in wrath they hate me.

55:4 My heart is severely pained within me,

And the terrors of death have fallen upon me.

55:5 Fearfulness and trembling have come upon

me,

And horror has overwhelmed me.

55:6 So I said, "Oh, that I had wings like a dove!

I would fly away and be at rest.

55:7 Indeed, I would wander far off,

And remain in the wilderness. Selah

55:8 I would hasten my escape

From the windy storm and tempest."

55:9 Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues,

For I have seen violence and strife in the city.

55:10 Day and night they go around it on its

walls;

Iniquity and trouble are also in the midst of it.

55:11 Destruction is in its midst; Oppression and

deceit do not depart from its streets.

55:12 For it is not an enemy who reproaches me;

Then I could bear it.

Nor is it one who hates me who has exalted

himself against me; Then I could hide from him.

55:13 But it was you, a man my equal,

My companion and my acquaintance.

55:14 We took sweet counsel together,

And walked to the house of Yahweh in the

throng.

55:15 Let death seize them;

Let them go down alive into the grave,

For wickedness is in their dwellings and among

them.

55:16 As for me, I will call upon Yahweh,

And Yahweh shall save me.

55:17 Evening and morning and at noon

I will pray, and cry aloud,

And He shall hear my voice.

55:18 He has redeemed my spirit in peace from

the battle that was against me,

For there were many against me.

55:19 Yahweh will hear, and afflict them,

Even He who abides from of old. Selah

Because they do not change,

Therefore they do not fear Yahweh.

55:20 He has put forth his hands against those

who were at peace with him;

He has broken his covenant.

55:21 The words of his mouth were smoother

than butter,

But war was in his heart;

His words were softer than oil,

Yet they were drawn swords.

55:22 Cast your burden on Yahweh,

And He shall sustain you;

He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.

55:23 But You, O Yahweh, shall bring them

down to the pit of destruction;

Bloodthirsty and deceitful men shall not live out

half their days;

But I will trust in You.

 

Psalms 56:

56:1 Be merciful to me, O Yahweh, for man

would swallow me up;

Fighting all day he oppresses me.

56:2 My enemies would hound me all day,

For there are many who fight against me, O Most

High.

56:3 Whenever I am afraid,

I will trust in You.

56:4 In Yahweh (I will praise His word),

In Yahweh I have put my trust;

I will not fear.

What can flesh do to me?

56:5 All day they twist my words;

All their thoughts are against me for evil.

56:6 They gather together,

They hide, they mark my steps,

When they lie in wait for my life.

56:7 Shall they escape by iniquity?

In anger cast down the peoples, O Yahweh!

56:8 You number my wanderings;

Put my tears into Your bottle;

Are they not in Your book?

56:9 When I cry out to You,

Then my enemies will turn back;

This I know, because Yahweh is for me.

56:10 In Yahweh (I will praise His word),

In Yahweh (I will praise His word),

56:11 In Yahweh I have put my trust;

I will not be afraid.

What can man do to me?

56:12 Vows made to You are binding upon me,

O Yahweh;

I will render praises to You,

56:13 For You have delivered my spirit from

death.

Have You not kept my feet from falling,

That I may walk before Yahweh

In the light of the living?

 

Psalms 57:

57:1 Be merciful to me, O Yahweh, be merciful

to me!

For my spirit trusts in You;

And in the shadow of Your wings I will make

my refuge,

Until these calamities have passed by.

57:2 I will cry out to Yahweh Most High,

To Yahweh who performs all things for me.

57:3 He shall send from heaven and save me;

He reproaches the one who would swallow me

up. Selah

Yahweh shall send forth His mercy and His

truth.

57:4 My body is among lions;

I lie among the sons of men

Who are set on fire,

Whose teeth are spears and arrows,

And their tongue a sharp sword.

57:5 Be exalted, O Yahweh, above the skies;

Let Your glory be above all the earth.

57:6 They have prepared a net for my steps;

My body is bowed down;

They have dug a pit before me;

Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen.

Selah

57:7 My heart is steadfast, O Yahweh, my heart

is steadfast;

I will sing and give praise.

57:8 Awake, my glory!

Awake, lute and harp!

I will awaken the dawn.

57:9 I will praise You, O Lord, among the

peoples; I will sing to You among the nations.

57:10 For Your mercy reaches unto the heavens,

And Your truth unto the clouds.

57:11 Be exalted, O Yahweh, above the skies;

Let Your glory be above all the earth.

 

PSALMS 58:

58:1 Do you indeed speak righteousness, you

silent ones?

Do you judge uprightly, you sons of men?

58:2 No, in heart you work wickedness;

You weigh out the violence of your hands in the

earth.

58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb;

They go astray as soon as they are born,

speaking lies.

58:4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent;

They are like the deaf cobra that stops its ear,

58:5 Which will not heed the voice of charmers,

Charming ever so skillfully.

58:6 Break their teeth in their mouth, O Yahweh!

Break out the fangs of the young lions, O

Yahweh!

58:7 Let them flow away as waters which run

continually;

When he bends his bow,

Let his arrows be as if cut in pieces.

58:8 Let them be like a snail which melts away

as it goes,

Like a stillborn child of a woman, that they may

not see the sun.

58:9 Before your pots can feel the burning

thorns,

He shall take them away as with a whirlwind,

As in His living and burning wrath.

58:10 The righteous shall rejoice when he sees

the vengeance;

He shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked,

58:11 So that men will say,

"Surely there is a reward for the righteous;

Surely He is Yahweh who judges in the earth."

 

Psalms 59:

59:1 Deliver me from my enemies, O my God;

Defend me from those who rise up against me.

59:2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity,

And save me from bloodthirsty men.

59:3 For look, they lie in wait for my life;

The mighty gather against me,

Not for my transgression nor for my sin, O

Yahweh.

59:4 They run and prepare themselves through

no fault of mine.

Awake to help me, and behold!

59:5 You therefore, O Yahweh the God of hosts,

the God of Israel,

Awake to punish all the nations;

Psalms 60:

Do not be merciful to any wicked transgressors.

Selah

59:6 At evening they return,

They growl like a dog,

And go all around the city.

59:7 Indeed, they belch with their mouth;

Swords are in their lips;

For they say, "Who hears?"

59:8 But You, O Yahweh, shall laugh at them;

You shall have all the nations in derision.

59:9 I will wait for You, O You his Strength;

For Yahweh is my defense;

59:10 My God of mercy shall come to meet me;

Yahweh shall let me see my desire on my

enemies.

59:11 Do not slay them, lest my people forget;

Scatter them by Your power,

And bring them down,

O Lord our shield.

59:12 For the sin of their mouth and the words of

their lips,

Let them even be taken in their pride,

And for the cursing and lying which they speak.

59:13 Consume them in wrath, consume them,

That they may not be;

And let them know that Yahweh rules in Jacob

To the ends of the earth. Selah

59:14 And at evening they return,

They growl like a dog,

And go all around the city.

59:15 They wander up and down for food,

And howl if they are not satisfied.

59:16 But I will sing of Your power;

Yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the

morning;

For You have been my defense

And refuge in the day of my trouble.

59:17 To You, O my Strength, I will sing

praises; For Yahweh is my defense,

My God of mercy.

 

Psalms 60:

60:1 O Yahweh, You have cast us off;

You have broken us down;

You have been displeased;

Oh, restore us again!

60:2 You have made the earth tremble;

You have broken it;

Heal its breaches, for it is shaking.

60:3 You have shown Your people hard things;

You have made us drink the wine of confusion.

60:4 You have given a banner to those who fear

You,

That it may be displayed because of the truth.

Selah

60:5 That Your beloved may be delivered,

Save with Your right hand, and hear me.

60:6 Yahweh has spoken in His holiness:

"I will rejoice;

I will divide Shechem

And measure out the Valley of Succoth.

60:7 Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine;

Ephraim also is the helmet for My head;

Judah is My lawgiver.

60:8 Moab is My washpot;

Over Edom I will cast My shoe;

Philistia, shout in triumph because of Me."

60:9 Who will bring me to the strong city?

Who will lead me to Edom?

60:10 Is it not You, O Yahweh, who cast us off?

And You, O Yahweh, who did not go out with

our armies?

60:11 Give us help from trouble,

For the help of man is useless.

60:12 Through Yahweh we will do valiantly,

For it is He who shall tread down our enemies.

 

Psalms 61:

61:1 HEAR my cry, O Yahweh;

Attend to my prayer.

61:2 From the end of the earth I will cry to You,

When my heart is overwhelmed;

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

61:3 For You have been a shelter for me,

A strong tower from the enemy.

61:4 I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;

I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah

61:5 For You, O Yahweh, have heard my vows;

You have given me the heritage of those who

fear Your name.

61:6 You will prolong the king's life,

His years as many generations.

61:7 He shall abide before Yahweh forever.

Oh, prepare mercy and truth, which may

preserve him!

61:8 So I will sing praise to Your name forever,

That I may daily perform my vows.

 

Psalms 62:

62:1 Truly my spirit silently waits for Yahweh;

From Him comes my salvation.

62:2 He only is my rock and my salvation;

He is my defense;

I shall not be greatly moved.

62:3 How long will you attack a man?

You shall be slain, all of you,

Like a leaning wall and a tottering fence.

62:4 They only consult to cast him down from

his high position;

They delight in lies;

They bless with their mouth,

But they curse inwardly. Selah

62:5 My spirit, wait silently for Yahweh alone,

For my expectation is from Him.

62:6 He only is my rock and my salvation;

He is my defense;

I shall not be moved.

62:7 In Yahweh is my salvation and my glory;

The rock of my strength,

And my refuge, is in Yahweh.

62:8 Trust in Him at all times, you people;

Pour out your heart before Him;

Yahweh is a refuge for us. Selah

62:9 Surely men of low degree are a vapor,

Men of high degree are a lie;

If they are weighed on the scales,

They are altogether lighter than vapor.

62:10 Do not trust in oppression,

Nor vainly hope in robbery;

If riches increase,

Do not set your heart on them.

62:11 Yahweh has spoken once,

Twice I have heard this:

That power belongs to Yahweh.

62:12 Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy;

For You render to each one according to his

work.

 

Psalms 63:

63:1 O Yahweh, You are my God;

Early will I seek You;

My spirit thirsts for You;

My flesh longs for You

In a dry and thirsty land

Where there is no water.

63:2 So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,

To see Your power and Your glory.

63:3 Because Your loving kindness is better than

life,

My lips shall praise You.

63:4 Thus I will bless You while I live;

I will lift up my hands in Your name.

63:5 My body shall be satisfied as with marrow

and fatness,

And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.

63:6 When I remember You on my bed,

I meditate on You in the night watches.

63:7 Because You have been my help,

Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will

rejoice.

63:8 My spirit follows close behind You;

Your right hand upholds me.

63:9 But those who seek my life, to destroy it,

Shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

63:10 They shall fall by the sword;

They shall be a portion for jackals.

63:11 But the king shall rejoice in Yahweh;

Everyone who swears by Him shall glory;

But the mouth of those who speak lies shall be

stopped.

 

Psalms 64:

64:1 Hear my voice, O Yahweh, in my

meditation;

Preserve my life from fear of the enemy.

64:2 Hide me from the secret plots of the

wicked,

From the rebellion of the workers of iniquity,

64:3 Who sharpen their tongue like a sword,

And bend their bows to shoot their arrows-bitter

words,

64:4 That they may shoot in secret at the

blameless;

Suddenly they shoot at him and do not fear.

64:5 They encourage themselves in an evil

matter;

They talk of laying snares secretly;

They say, "Who will see them?"

64:6 They devise iniquities:

"We have perfected a shrewd scheme."

Both the inward thought and the heart of man are

deep.

64:7 But Yahweh shall shoot at them with an

arrow;

Suddenly they shall be wounded.

64:8 So He will make them stumble over their

own tongue;

All who see them shall flee away.

64:9 All men shall fear,

And shall declare the work of Yahweh;

For they shall wisely consider His doing.

64:10 The righteous shall be glad in Yahweh,

and trust in Him.

And all the upright in heart shall glory.

 

Psalms 65:

65:1 Praise is awaiting You, O Yahweh, in Zion;

And to You the vow shall be performed.

65:2 O You who hear prayer,

To You all flesh will come.

65:3 Iniquities prevail against me;

As for our transgressions,

You will provide atonement for them.

65:4 Blessed is the man You choose,

And cause to approach You,

That he may dwell in Your courts.

We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your

house,

Of Your holy temple.

65:5 By awesome deeds in righteousness You

will answer us,

O God of our salvation,

You who are the confidence of all the ends of the

earth,

And of the far-off seas;

65:6 Who established the mountains by His

strength,

Being clothed with power;

65:7 You who still the noise of the seas,

The noise of their waves,

And the tumult of the peoples.

65:8 They also who dwell in the farthest parts are

afraid of Your signs; You make the outgoings of

the morning and evening rejoice.

65:9 You visit the earth and water it,

You greatly enrich it;

The river of Yahweh is full of water;

You provide their grain,

For so You have prepared it.

65:10 You water its ridges abundantly,

You settle its furrows;

You make it soft with showers,

You bless its growth.

65:11 You crown the year with Your goodness,

And Your paths drip with abundance.

65:12 They drop on the pastures of the

wilderness, And the little hills rejoice on every

side.

65:13 The pastures are clothed with flocks;

The valleys also are covered with grain;

They shout for joy, they also sing.

 

Psalms 66:

66:1 Make a joyful shout to Yahweh, all the

earth!

66:2 Sing out the honor of His name;

Make His praise glorious.

66:3 Say to Yahweh,

"How awesome are Your works!

Through the greatness of Your power

Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.

66:4 All the earth shall worship You

And sing praises to You;

They shall sing praises to Your name." Selah

66:5 Come and see the works of Yahweh;

He is awesome in His doing toward the sons of

men.

66:6 He turned the sea into dry land;

They went through the river on foot.

There we will rejoice in Him.

66:7 He rules by His power forever;

His eyes observe the nations;

Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah

66:8 Oh, bless our God, you peoples!

And make the voice of His praise to be heard,

66:9 Who keeps our spirit among the living,

And does not allow our feet to be moved.

66:10 For You, O Yahweh, have tested us;

You have refined us as silver is refined.

66:11 You brought us into the net;

You laid affliction on our backs.

66:12 You have caused men to ride over our

heads;

We went through fire and through water;

But You brought us out to rich fulfillment.

66:13 I will go into Your house with burnt

offerings;

I will pay You my vows,

66:14 Which my lips have uttered

And my mouth has spoken when I was in

trouble.

66:15 I will offer You burnt sacrifices of fat

animals,

With the sweet aroma of rams;

I will offer bulls with goats. Selah

66:16 Come and hear, all you who fear Yahweh,

And I will declare what He has done for my

spirit.

66:17 I cried to Him with my mouth,

And He was extolled with my tongue.

66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart,

Yahweh will not hear.

66:19 But certainly Yahweh has heard me;

He has attended to the voice of my prayer.

66:20 Blessed be Yahweh,

Who has not turned away my prayer,

Nor His mercy from me!

 

Psalms 67:

67:1 Yahweh be merciful to us and bless us,

And cause His face to shine upon us. Selah

67:2 That Your way may be known on earth,

Your salvation among all nations.

67:3 Let the peoples praise You, O Yahweh;

Let all the peoples praise You.

67:4 Oh, let the nations be glad and sing for joy!

For You shall judge the people righteously,

And govern the nations on earth. Selah

67:5 Let the peoples praise You, O Yahweh;

Let all the peoples praise You.

67:6 Then the earth shall yield her increase;

Yahweh, our own God, shall bless us.

67:7 Yahweh shall bless us,

And all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.

 

Psalms 68:

68:1 Let Yahweh arise,

Let His enemies be scattered;

Let those also who hate Him flee before Him.

68:2 As smoke is driven away,

So drive them away;

As wax melts before the fire,

So let the wicked perish at the presence of

Yahweh.

68:3 But let the righteous be glad;

Let them rejoice before Yahweh;

Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly.

68:4 Sing to Yahweh, sing praises to His name;

Extol Him who rides on the clouds,

By His name YAHWEH,

And rejoice before Him.

68:5 A father of the fatherless, a defender of

widows,

Is Yahweh in His holy habitation.

68:6 Yahweh sets the solitary in families;

He brings out those who are bound into

prosperity;

But the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

68:7 O Yahweh, when You went out before

Your people,

When You marched through the wilderness,

Selah

68:8 The earth shook; The skies also dropped

rain at the presence of Yahweh;

Sinai itself was moved at the presence of

Yahweh, the God of Israel.

68:9 You, O Yahweh, sent a plentiful rain,

Whereby You confirmed Your inheritance,

When it was weary.

68:10 Your congregation dwelt in it;

You, O Yahweh, provided from Your goodness

for the poor.

68:11 Yahweh gave the word;

Great was the company of those who proclaimed

it:

68:12 "Kings of armies flee, they flee,

And she who remains at home divides the spoil.

68:13 Though you lie down among the

sheepfolds,

You will be like the wings of a dove covered

with silver, And her feathers with yellow gold."

68:14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it,

It was white as snow in Zalmon.

68:15 A mountain of Yahweh is the mountain of

Bashan;

A mountain of many peaks is the mountain of

Bashan.

68:16 Why do you fume with envy, you

mountains of many peaks?

This is the mountain which Yahweh desires to

dwell in;

Yes, Yahweh will dwell in it forever.

68:17 The chariots of Yahweh are twenty

thousand,

Even thousands of thousands;

Yahweh is among them as in Sinai, in the Holy

Place.

68:18 You have ascended on high,

You have led captivity captive;

You have received gifts among men,

Even from the rebellious,

That Yahweh the God might dwell there.

68:19 Blessed be Yahweh,

Who daily loads us with benefits,

The God of our salvation! Selah

68:20 Our God is the God of salvation;

And to Yahweh belong escapes from death.

68:21 But Yahweh will wound the head of His

enemies,

The hairy scalp of the one who still goes on in

His trespasses.

68:22 Yahweh said, "I will bring back from

Bashan,

I will bring them back from the depths of the sea,

68:23 That your foot may crush them in blood,

And the tongues of your dogs may have their

portion from your enemies."

68:24 They have seen Your procession, O

Yahweh,

The procession of my God, my King, into the

sanctuary.

68:25 The singers went before, the players on

instruments followed after;

Among them were the maidens playing timbrels.

68:26 Bless Yahweh in the congregations,

Yahweh, from the fountain of Israel.

68:27 There is little Benjamin, their leader,

The princes of Judah and their company,

The princes of Zebulun and the princes of

Naphtali.

68:28 Your God has commanded your strength;

Strengthen O Yahweh what You have done for

us.

68:29 Because of Your temple at Jerusalem,

Kings will bring presents to You.

68:30 Rebuke the beasts of the reeds,

The herd of bulls with the calves of the peoples,

Till everyone submits himself with pieces of

silver.

Scatter the peoples who delight in war.

68:31 Envoys will come out of Egypt; Ethiopia

will quickly stretch out her hands to Yahweh.

68:32 Sing to Yahweh, you kingdoms of the

earth; Oh, sing praises to Yahweh, Selah

68:33 To Him who rides on the cloud of

heavens, which were of old!

Indeed, He sends out His voice, a mighty voice.

68:34 Ascribe strength to Yahweh; His

excellence is over Israel, And His strength is in

the clouds.

68:35 O Yahweh, You are more awesome than

Your holy places.

The God of Israel is He who gives strength and

power to His people.

Blessed be Yahweh!

 

Psalms 69:

69:1 Save me, O Yahweh!

For the waters have come up to my neck.

69:2 I sink in deep mire,

Where there is no standing;

I have come into deep waters,

Where the floods overflow me.

69:3 I am weary with my crying;

My throat is dry;

My eyes fail while I wait for my God.

69:4 Those who hate me without a cause

Are more than the hairs of my head;

They are mighty who would destroy me,

Being my enemies wrongfully;

Though I have stolen nothing,

I still must restore it.

69:5 O Yahweh, You know my foolishness;

And my sins are not hidden from You.

69:6 Let not those who wait for You, O Yahweh

the God of hosts, be ashamed because of me;

Let not those who seek You be confounded

because of me, O God of Israel.

69:7 Because for Your sake I have borne

reproach;

Shame has covered my face.

69:8 I have become a stranger to my brothers,

And an alien to my mother's children;

69:9 Because zeal for Your house has eaten me

up,

And the reproaches of those who reproach You

have fallen on me.

69:10 When I wept and chastened my body with

fasting,

That became my reproach.

69:11 I also made sackcloth my garment;

I became a byword to them.

69:12 Those who sit in the gate speak against

me,

And I am the song of the drunkards.

69:13 But as for me, my prayer is to You,

O Yahweh, in the acceptable time;

O Yahweh, in the multitude of Your mercy,

Hear me in the truth of Your salvation.

69:14 Deliver me out of the mire,

And let me not sink;

Let me be delivered from those who hate me,

And out of the deep waters.

69:15 Let not the floodwater overflow me,

Nor let the deep swallow me up;

And let not the pit shut its mouth on me.

69:16 Hear me, O Yahweh, for Your

loving kindness is good;

Turn to me according to the multitude of Your

tender mercies.

69:17 And do not hide Your face from Your

servant,

For I am in trouble;

Hear me speedily.

69:18 Draw near to my spirit, and redeem it;

Deliver me because of my enemies.

69:19 You know my reproach, my shame, and

my dishonor;

My adversaries are all before You.

69:20 Reproach has broken my heart,

And I am full of heaviness;

I looked for someone to take pity, but there was

none;

And for comforters, but I found none.

69:21 They also gave me gall for my food,

And for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

69:22 Let their table become a snare before

them,

And their well-being a trap.

69:23 Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do

not see;

And make their loins shake continually.

69:24 Pour out Your indignation upon them,

And let Your wrathful anger take hold of them.

69:25 Let their dwelling place be desolate;

Let no one live in their tents.

69:26 For they persecute the ones You have

struck,

And talk of the grief of those You have

wounded.

69:27 Add iniquity to their iniquity,

And let them not come into Your righteousness.

69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the

living,

And not be written with the righteous.

69:29 But I am poor and sorrowful; Let Your

salvation, O Yahweh, set me up on high.

69:30 I will praise the name of Yahweh with a

song, And will magnify Him with thanksgiving.

69:31 This also shall please Yahweh better than

an ox or bull, Which has horns and hooves.

69:32 The humble shall see this and be glad;

And you who seek Yahweh, your hearts shall

live.

69:33 For Yahweh hears the poor,

And does not despise His prisoners.

69:34 Let heaven and earth praise Him,

The seas and everything that moves in them.

69:35 For Yahweh will save Zion

And build the cities of Judah,

That they may dwell there and possess it.

69:36 Also, the descendants of His servants shall

inherit it,

And those who love His name shall dwell in it.

 

Psalms 70:

70:1 Make haste, O Yahweh, to deliver me!

Make haste to help me, O Yahweh!

70:2 Let them be ashamed and confounded

Who seek my life;

Let them be turned back and confused

Who desire my hurt.

70:3 Let them be turned back because of their

shame,

Who say, "Aha, aha!"

70:4 Let all those who seek You rejoice and be

glad in You;

And let those who love Your salvation say

continually,

"Let Yahweh be magnified!"

70:5 But I am poor and needy;

Make haste to me, O Yahweh!

You are my help and my deliverer;

O Yahweh, do not delay.

 

Psalms 71:

71:1 In You, O Yahweh, I put my trust;

Let me never be put to shame.

71:2 Deliver me in Your righteousness, and

cause me to escape;

Incline Your ear to me, and save me.

71:3 Be my strong refuge,

To which I may resort continually;

You have given the commandment to save me,

For You are my rock and my fortress.

71:4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of

the wicked,

Out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel

man.

71:5 For You are my hope, O Yahweh the God;

You are my trust from my youth.

71:6 By You I have been upheld from birth;

You are He who took me out of my mother's

womb.

My praise shall be continually of You.

71:7 I have become as a wonder to many,

But You are my strong refuge.

71:8 Let my mouth be filled with Your praise

And with Your glory all the day.

71:9 Do not cast me off in the time of old age;

Do not forsake me when my strength fails.

71:10 For my enemies speak against me;

And those who lie in wait for my life take

counsel together,

71:11 Saying, "God has forsaken him;

Pursue and take him, for there is none to deliver

him."

71:12 O Yahweh, do not be far from me;

O my God, make haste to help me!

71:13 Let them be confounded and consumed

Who are adversaries of my life;

Let them be covered with reproach and dishonor

Who seek my hurt.

71:14 But I will hope continually,

And will praise You yet more and more.

71:15 My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness

And Your salvation all the day,

For I do not know their limits.

71:16 I will go in the strength of Yahweh the

God;

I will make mention of Your righteousness, of

Yours only.

71:17 O Yahweh, You have taught me from my

youth;

And to this day I declare Your wondrous works.

71:18 Now also when I am old and grayheaded,

O Yahweh, do not forsake me,

Until I declare Your strength to this generation,

Your power to everyone who is to come.

71:19 Also Your righteousness, O Yahweh, is

very high,

You who have done great things;

O Yahweh, who is like You?

71:20 You, who have shown me great and severe

troubles,

Shall revive me again,

And bring me up again from the depths of the

earth.

71:21 You shall increase my greatness,

And comfort me on every side.

71:22 Also with the lute I will praise you-

And Your faithfulness, O my God!

To You I will sing with the harp,

O Holy One of Israel.

71:23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to

You,

And my spirit, which You have redeemed.

71:24 My tongue also shall talk of Your

righteousness all the day long;

For they are confounded,

For they are brought to shame

Who seek my hurt.

 

Psalms 72:

72:1 Give the king Your judgments, O Yahweh,

And Your righteousness to the king's Son.

72:2 He will judge Your people with

righteousness,

And Your poor with justice.

72:3 The mountains will bring peace to the

people, And the little hills, by righteousness.

72:4 He will bring justice to the poor of the

people;

He will save the children of the needy,

And will break in pieces the oppressor.

72:5 They shall fear You

As long as the sun and moon endure,

Throughout all generations.

72:6 He shall come down like rain upon the

grass before mowing,

Like showers that water the earth.

72:7 In His days the righteous shall flourish,

And abundance of peace,

Until the moon is no more.

72:8 He shall have dominion also from sea to

sea,

And from the River to the ends of the earth.

72:9 Those who dwell in the wilderness will bow

before Him,

And His enemies will lick the dust.

72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles

Will bring presents;

The kings of Sheba and Seba

Will offer gifts.

72:11 Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him;

All nations shall serve Him.

72:12 For He will deliver the needy when he

cries,

The poor also, and him who has no helper.

72:13 He will spare the poor and needy,

And will save the spirits of the needy.

72:14 He will redeem their life from oppression

and violence;

And precious shall be their blood in His sight.

72:15 And He shall live;

And the gold of Sheba will be given to Him;

Prayer also will be made for Him continually,

And daily He shall be praised.

72:16 There will be an abundance of grain in the

earth,

On the top of the mountains;

Its fruit shall wave like Lebanon;

And those of the city shall flourish like grass of

the earth.

72:17 His name shall endure forever;

His name shall continue as long as the sun.

And men shall be blessed in Him;

All nations shall call Him blessed.

72:18 Blessed be Yahweh the God, the God of

Israel,

Who only does wondrous things!

72:19 And blessed be His glorious name forever!

And let the whole earth be filled with His glory.

 

Psalms 73:

Amam and Amam.

72:20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are

ended.

73:1 Truly Yahweh is good to Israel,

To such as are pure in heart.

73:2 But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled;

My steps had nearly slipped.

73:3 For I was envious of the boastful,

When I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

73:4 For there are no pangs in their death,

But their strength is firm.

73:5 They are not in trouble as other men,

Nor are they plagued like other men.

73:6 Therefore pride serves as their necklace;

Violence covers them like a garment.

73:7 Their eyes bulge with abundance;

They have more than heart could wish.

73:8 They scoff and speak wickedly concerning

oppression;

They speak loftily.

73:9 They set their mouth against the heavens,

And their tongue walks through the earth.

73:10 Therefore his people return here,

And waters of a full cup are drained by them.

73:11 And they say, "How does Yahweh know?

And is there knowledge in the Most High?"

73:12 Behold, these are the ungodly,

Who are always at ease;

They increase in riches.

73:13 Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain,

And washed my hands in innocence.

73:14 For all day long I have been plagued,

And chastened every morning.

73:15 If I had said, "I will speak thus,"

Behold, I would have been untrue to the

generation of Your children.

73:16 When I thought how to understand this,

It was too painful for me-

73:17 Until I went into the sanctuary of Yahweh;

Then I understood their end.

73:18 Surely You set them in slippery places;

You cast them down to destruction.

73:19 Oh, how they are brought to desolation, as

in a moment!

They are utterly consumed with terrors.

73:20 As a dream when one awakes,

So, Lord, when You awake,

You shall despise their image.

73:21 Thus my heart was grieved,

And I was vexed in my mind.

73:22 I was so foolish and ignorant;

I was like a beast before You.

73:23 Nevertheless I am continually with You;

You hold me by my right hand.

73:24 You will guide me with Your counsel,

And afterward receive me to glory.

73:25 Whom have I in heaven but You? And

there is none upon earth that I desire besides

You.

73:26 My flesh and my heart fail;

But Yahweh is the strength of my heart and my

portion forever.

73:27 For indeed, those who are far from You

shall perish; You have destroyed all those who

desert You for harlotry.

73:28 But it is good for me to draw near to

Yahweh;

I have put my trust in Yahweh the God,

That I may declare all Your works.

74:1 O Yahweh, why have You cast us off

forever? Why does Your anger smoke against the

sheep of Your pasture?

74:2 Remember Your congregation, which You

have purchased of old,

The tribe of Your inheritance, which You have

redeemed-

This Mount Zion where You have dwelt.

74:3 Lift up Your feet to the perpetual

desolations.

The enemy has damaged everything in the

sanctuary.

74:4 Your enemies roar in the midst of Your

meeting place;

They set up their banners for signs.

74:5 They seem like men who lift up

Axes among the thick trees.

74:6 And now they break down its carved work,

all at once,

With axes and hammers.

74:7 They have set fire to Your sanctuary;

They have defiled the dwelling place of Your

name to the ground.

74:8 They said in their hearts,

"Let us destroy them altogether."

They have burned up all the meeting places of

Yahweh in the land.

74:9 We do not see our signs;

There is no longer any prophet;

Nor is there any among us who knows how long.

74:10 O Yahweh, how long will the adversary

reproach?

Will the enemy blaspheme Your name forever?

74:11 Why do You withdraw Your hand, even

Your right hand?

Take it out of Your bosom and destroy them.

74:12 For Yahweh is my King from of old,

Working salvation in the midst of the earth.

74:13 You divided the sea by Your strength;

You broke the heads of the sea serpents in the

waters.

74:14 You broke the heads of Leviathan in

pieces,

And gave him as food to the people inhabiting

the wilderness.

74:15 You broke open the fountain and the

flood;

You dried up mighty rivers.

74:16 The day is Yours, the night also is Yours;

You have prepared the light and the sun.

74:17 You have set all the borders of the earth;

You have made summer and winter.

74:18 Remember this, that the enemy has

reproached, O Yahweh,

And that a foolish people has blasphemed Your

name.

74:19 Oh, do not deliver the life of Your

turtledove to the wild beast!

Do not forget the life of Your poor forever.

74:20 Have respect to the covenant;

For the dark places of the earth are full of the

haunts of cruelty.

74:21 Oh, do not let the oppressed return

ashamed!

Let the poor and needy praise Your name.

74:22 Arise, O Yahweh, plead Your own cause;

Remember how the foolish man reproaches You

daily.

74:23 Do not forget the voice of Your enemies;

The tumult of those who rise up against You

increases continually.

 

Psalms 75:

75:1 We give thanks to You, O Yahweh, we give

thanks!

For Your wondrous works declare that Your

name is near.

75:2 "When I choose the proper time,

I will judge uprightly.

75:3 The earth and all its inhabitants are

dissolved;

I set up its pillars firmly. Selah

75:4 'I said to the boastful, 'Do not deal

boastfully,'

And to the wicked, 'Do not lift up the horn.

75:5 Do not lift up your horn on high;

Do not speak with a stiff neck.' "

75:6 For exaltation comes neither from the east

Nor from the west nor from the south.

75:7 But Yahweh is the Judge:

He puts down one,

And exalts another.

75:8 For in the hand of Yahweh there is a cup,

And the wine is red;

It is fully mixed, and He pours it out;

Surely its dregs shall all the wicked of the earth

Drain and drink down.

75:9 But I will declare forever,

I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

75:10 'All the horns of the wicked I will also cut

off,

But the horns of the righteous shall be exalted."

 

Psalms 76:

76:1 In Judah Yahweh is known;

His name is great in Israel.

76:2 In Salem also is His tabernacle,

And His dwelling place in Zion.

76:3 There He broke the arrows of the bow,

The shield and sword of battle. Selah

76:4 You are more glorious and excellent

Than the mountains of prey.

76:5 The stouthearted were plundered;

They have sunk into their sleep;

And none of the mighty men have found the use

of their hands.

76:6 At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob,

Both the chariot and horse were cast into a dead

sleep.

76:7 You, Yourself, are to be feared;

And who may stand in Your presence

When once You are angry?

76:8 You caused judgment to be heard from

heaven;

The earth feared and was still,

76:9 When Yahweh arose to judgment,

To deliver all the oppressed of the earth. Selah

76:10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise You;

With the remainder of wrath You shall gird

Yourself.

76:11 Make vows to Yahweh your God, and pay

them;

Let all who are around Him bring presents to

Him who ought to be feared.

76:12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes;

He is awesome to the kings of the earth.

 

Psalms 77:

77:1 I cried out to Yahweh with my voice-

To Yahweh with my voice;

And He gave ear to me.

77:2 In the day of my trouble I sought Yahweh;

My hand was stretched out in the night without

ceasing;

My body refused to be comforted.

77:3 I remembered Yahweh, and was troubled;

I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed.

Selah

77:4 You hold my eyelids open;

I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

77:5 I have considered the days of old,

The years of ancient times.

77:6 I call to remembrance my song in the night;

I meditate within my heart,

And my spirit makes diligent search.

77:7 Will Yahweh cast off forever?

And will He be favorable no more?

77:8 Has His mercy ceased forever?

Has His promise failed forevermore?

77:9 Has Yahweh forgotten to be gracious?

Has He in anger shut up His tender mercies?

Selah

77:10 And I said, "This is my anguish;

But I will remember the years of the right hand

of the Most High."

77:11 I will remember the works of Yahweh;

Surely I will remember Your wonders of old.

77:12 I will also meditate on all Your work,

And talk of Your deeds.

77:13 Your way, O Yahweh, is in the sanctuary;

Who is so great a God as our God?

77:14 You are the God who does wonders;

You have declared Your strength among the

peoples.

77:15 You have with Your arm redeemed Your

people,

The sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah

77:16 The waters saw You, O Yahweh;

The waters saw You, they were afraid;

The depths also trembled.

77:17 The clouds poured out water;

The skies sent out a sound;

Your arrows also flashed about.

77:18 The voice of Your thunder was in the

whirlwind; The lightnings lit up the world;

The earth trembled and shook.

77:19 Your way was in the sea,

Your path in the great waters,

And Your footsteps were not known.

77:20 You led Your people like a flock

By the hand of Moses and Aaron.

 

Psalms 78:

78:1 Give ear, O my people, to my law;

Incline your ears to the words of my mouth.

78:2 I will open my mouth in a parable;

I will utter dark sayings of old,

78:3 Which we have heard and known,

And our fathers have told us.

78:4 We will not hide them from their children,

Telling to the generation to come the praises of

Yahweh,

And His strength and His wonderful works that

He has done.

78:5 For He established a testimony in Jacob,

And appointed a law in Israel,

Which He commanded our fathers,

That they should make them known to their

children;

78:6 That the generation to come might know

them,

The children who would be born,

That they may arise and declare them to their

children,

78:7 That they may set their hope in Yahweh,

And not forget the works of Yahweh,

But keep His commandments;

78:8 And may not be like their fathers,

A stubborn and rebellious generation,

A generation that did not set its heart aright,

And whose spirit was not faithful to Yahweh.

78:9 The children of Ephraim, being armed and

carrying bows,

Turned back in the day of battle.

78:10 They did not keep the covenant of

Yahweh;

They refused to walk in His law,

78:11 And forgot His works

And His wonders that He had shown them.

78:12 Marvelous things He did in the sight of

their fathers,

In the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.

78:13 He divided the sea and caused them to

pass through;

And He made the waters stand up like a heap.

78:14 In the daytime also He led them with the

cloud,

And all the night with a light of fire.

78:15 He split the rocks in the wilderness,

And gave them drink in abundance like the

depths.

78:16 He also brought streams out of the rock,

And caused waters to run down like rivers.

78:17 But they sinned even more against Him

By rebelling against the Most High in the

wilderness.

78:18 And they tested Yahweh in their heart

By asking for the food of their fancy.

78:19 Yes, they spoke against Yahweh:

They said, "Can Yahweh prepare a table in the

wilderness?

78:20 Behold, He struck the rock,

So that the waters gushed out,

And the streams overflowed.

Can He give bread also?

Can He provide meat for His people?"

78:21 Therefore Yahweh heard this and was

furious;

So a fire was kindled against Jacob,

And anger also came up against Israel,

78:22 Because they did not believe in Yahweh,

And did not trust in His salvation.

78:23 Yet He had commanded the clouds above,

And opened the doors of the sky,

78:24 Had rained down manna on them to eat,

And given them of the bread of heaven.

78:25 Men ate angels' food;

He sent them food to the full.

78:26 He caused an east wind to blow in the

skies;

And by His power He brought in the south wind.

78:27 He also rained meat on them like the dust,

Feathered fowl like the sand of the seas;

78:28 And He let them fall in the midst of their

camp,

All around their dwellings.

78:29 So they ate and were well filled,

For He gave them their own desire.

78:30 They were not deprived of their craving;

But while their food was still in their mouths,

78:31 The wrath of Yahweh came against them,

And slew the stoutest of them,

And struck down the choice men of Israel.

78:32 In spite of this they still sinned, AND did

not believe in His wondrous works.

78:33 Therefore their days He consumed in

futility, And their years in fear.

78:34 When He slew them, then they sought

Him; And they returned and sought earnestly for

Yahweh.

78:35 Then they remembered that Yahweh was

their rock,

And the Most High God their Redeemer.

78:36 Nevertheless they flattered Him with their

mouth,

And they lied to Him with their tongue;

78:37 For their heart was not steadfast with Him,

Nor were they faithful in His covenant.

78:38 But He, being full of compassion, forgave

their iniquity,

And did not destroy them.

Yes, many a time He turned His anger away,

And did not stir up all His wrath;

78:39 For He remembered that they were but

flesh,

A breath that passes away and does not come

again.

78:40 How often they provoked Him in the

wilderness,

And grieved Him in the desert!

78:41 Yes, again and again they tempted

Yahweh,

And limited the Holy One of Israel.

78:42 They did not remember His power:

The day when He redeemed them from the

enemy,

78:43 When He worked His signs in Egypt,

And His wonders in the field of Zoan;

78:44 Turned their rivers into blood,

And their streams, that they could not drink.

78:45 He sent swarms of flies among them,

which devoured them,

And frogs, which destroyed them.

78:46 He also gave their crops to the caterpillar,

And their labor to the locust.

78:47 He destroyed their vines with hail,

And their sycamore trees with frost.

78:48 He also gave up their cattle to the hail,

And their flocks to fiery lightning.

78:49 He cast on them the fierceness of His

anger,

Wrath, indignation, and trouble,

By sending angels of destruction among them.

78:50 He made a path for His anger;

He did not spare their body from death,

But gave their life over to the plague,

78:51 And destroyed all the firstborn in Egypt,

The first of their strength in the tents of Ham.

78:52 But He made His own people go forth like

sheep,

And guided them in the wilderness like a flock;

78:53 And He led them on safely, so that they

did not fear;

But the sea overwhelmed their enemies.

78:54 And He brought them to His holy border,

This mountain which His right hand had

acquired.

78:55 He also drove out the nations before them,

Allotted them an inheritance by survey,

And made the tribes of Israel dwell in their tents.

78:56 Yet they tested and provoked the Most

High God,

And did not keep His testimonies,

78:57 But turned back and acted unfaithfully like

their fathers;

They were turned aside like a deceitful bow.

78:58 For they provoked Him to anger with their

high places,

And moved Him to jealousy with their carved

images.

78:59 When Yahweh heard this, He was furious,

And greatly abhorred Israel,

78:60 So that He forsook the tabernacle of

Shiloh,

The tent He had placed among men,

78:61 And delivered His strength into captivity,

And His glory into the enemy's hand.

78:62 He also gave His people over to the sword,

And was furious with His inheritance.

78:63 The fire consumed their young men,

And their maidens were not given in marriage.

78:64 Their priests fell by the sword,

And their widows made no lamentation.

78:65 Then Yahweh awoke as from sleep,

Like a mighty man who shouts because of wine.

78:66 And He beat back His enemies;

He put them to a perpetual reproach.

78:67 Moreover He rejected the tent of Joseph,

And did not choose the tribe of Ephraim,

78:68 But chose the tribe of Judah,

Mount Zion which He loved.

78:69 And He built His sanctuary like the

heights,

Like the earth which He has established forever.

78:70 He also chose David His servant,

And took him from the sheepfolds;

78:71 From following the ewes that had young

He brought him,

To shepherd Jacob His people,

And Israel His inheritance.

78:72 So he shepherded them according to the

integrity of his heart,

And guided them by the skillfulness of his

hands.

 

Psalms 79:

79:1 O Yahweh, the nations have come into

Your inheritance;

Your holy temple they have defiled;

They have laid Jerusalem in heaps.

79:2 The dead bodies of Your servants

They have given as food for the birds of the

skies,

The flesh of Your saints to the beasts of the

earth.

79:3 Their blood they have shed like water all

around Jerusalem,

And there was no one to bury them.

79:4 We have become a reproach to our

neighbors,

A scorn and derision to those who are around us.

79:5 How long, Yahweh?

Will You be angry forever?

Will Your jealousy burn like fire?

79:6 Pour out Your wrath on the nations that do

not know You,

And on the kingdoms that do not call on Your

name.

79:7 For they have devoured Jacob,

And laid waste his dwelling place.

79:8 Oh, do not remember former iniquities

against us!

Let Your tender mercies come speedily to meet

us,

For we have been brought very low.

79:9 Help us, O God of our salvation,

For the glory of Your name;

And deliver us, and provide atonement for our

sins,

For Your name's sake!

79:10 Why should the nations say,

"Where is their God?"

Let there be known among the nations in our

sight

The avenging of the blood of Your servants

which has been shed.

79:11 Let the groaning of the prisoner come

before You;

According to the greatness of Your power

Preserve those who are appointed to die;

79:12 And return to our neighbors sevenfold into

their bosom

Their reproach with which they have reproached

You, O Lord.

79:13 So we, Your people and sheep of Your

pasture,

Will give You thanks forever;

We will show forth Your praise to all

generations.

 

Psalms 80:

80:1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel,

You who lead Joseph like a flock;

You who dwell between the cherubim, shine

forth!

80:2 Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh,

Stir up Your strength,

And come and save us!

80:3 Restore us, O Yahweh;

Cause Your face to shine,

And we shall be saved!

80:4 O Yahweh the God of hosts,

How long will You be angry

Against the prayer of Your people?

80:5 You have fed them with the bread of tears,

And given them tears to drink in great measure.

80:6 You have made us a strife to our neighbors,

And our enemies laugh among themselves.

80:7 Restore us, O God of hosts;

Cause Your face to shine,

And we shall be saved!

80:8 You have brought a vine out of Egypt;

You have cast out the nations, and planted it.

80:9 You prepared room for it,

And caused it to take deep root,

And it filled the land.

80:10 The hills were covered with its shadow,

And the mighty cedars with its boughs.

80:11 She sent out her boughs to the Sea,

And her branches to the River.

80:12 Why have You broken down her hedges,

So that all who pass by the way pluck her fruit?

80:13 The boar out of the woods uproots it,

And the wild beast of the field devours it.

80:14 Return, we beseech You, O God of hosts;

Look down from the sky and see,

And visit this vine

80:15 And the vineyard which Your right hand

has planted,

And the branch that You made strong for

Yourself.

80:16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down;

They perish at the rebuke of Your countenance.

80:17 Let Your hand be upon the man of Your

right hand,

Upon the son of man whom You made strong for

Yourself.

80:18 Then we will not turn back from You;

Revive us, and we will call upon Your name.

80:19 Restore us, O Yahweh the God of hosts;

Cause Your face to shine,

And we shall be saved!

 

Psalms 81:

81:1 Sing aloud to Yahweh our strength;

Make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob.

81:2 Raise a song and strike the timbrel,

The pleasant harp with the lute.

81:3 Blow the trumpet at the time of the New

Moon,

At the full moon, on our solemn feast day.

81:4 For this is a statute for Israel,

A law of the God of Jacob.

81:5 This He established in Joseph as a

testimony,

When He went throughout the land of Egypt,

Where I heard a language I did not understand.

81:6 "I removed his shoulder from the burden;

His hands were freed from the baskets.

81:7 You called in trouble, and I delivered you;

I answered you in the secret place of thunder;

I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah

81:8 "Hear, O My people, and I will admonish

you!

O Israel, if you will listen to Me!

81:9 There shall be no foreign god among you;

Nor shall you worship any foreign god.

81:10 I am Yahweh your God,

Who brought you out of the land of Egypt;

Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.

81:11 "But My people would not heed My voice,

And Israel would have none of Me.

81:12 So I gave them over to their own stubborn

heart,

To walk in their own counsels.

81:13 "Oh, that My people would listen to Me,

That Israel would walk in My ways!

81:14 I would soon subdue their enemies,

And turn My hand against their adversaries.

81:15 The haters of Yahweh would pretend

submission to Him,

But their fate would endure forever.

81:16 He would have fed them also with the

finest of wheat;

And with honey from the rock I would have

satisfied you."

 

Psalms 82:

82:1 Yahweh stands in the congregation of the

mighty;

He judges among the gods.

82:2 How long will you judge unjustly,

And show partiality to the wicked? Selah

82:3 Defend the poor and fatherless;

Do justice to the afflicted and needy.

82:4 Deliver the poor and needy;

Free them from the hand of the wicked.

82:5 They do not know, nor do they understand;

They walk about in darkness;

All the foundations of the earth are unstable.

82:6 I said, "You are gods,

And all of you are children of the Most High.

82:7 But you shall die like men,

And fall like one of the princes."

82:8 Arise, O Yahweh, judge the earth;

For You shall inherit all nations.

Psalms 83:

83:1 Do not keep silent, O Yahweh!

Do not hold Your peace,

And do not be still, O Yahweh!

83:2 For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;

And those who hate You have lifted up their

head.

83:3 They have taken crafty counsel against

Your people,

And consulted together against Your sheltered

ones.

83:4 They have said, "Come, and let us cut them

off from being a nation,

That the name of Israel may be remembered no

more."

83:5 For they have consulted together with one

consent;

They form a confederacy against You:

83:6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;

Moab and the Hagrites;

83:7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek;

Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;

83:8 Assyria also has joined with them;

They have helped the children of Lot. Selah

83:9 Deal with them as with Midian,

As with Sisera,

As with Jabin at the Brook Kishon,

83:10 Who perished at En Dor,

Who became as refuse on the earth.

83:11 Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb,

Yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,

83:12 Who said, "Let us take for ourselves

The pastures of Yahweh for a possession."

83:13 O my God, make them like the whirling

dust,

Like the chaff before the wind!

83:14 As the fire burns the woods,

And as the flame sets the mountains on fire,

83:15 So pursue them with Your tempest,

And frighten them with Your storm.

83:16 Fill their faces with shame,

That they may seek Your name, O Yahweh.

83:17 Let them be confounded and dismayed

forever;

Yes, let them be put to shame and perish,

83:18 That they may know that You, whose

name alone is Yahweh,

Are the Most High over all the earth.

 

Psalms 84:

84:1 How lovely is Your tabernacle,

O Yahweh of hosts!

84:2 My spirit longs, yes, even faints

For the courts of Yahweh;

My heart and my flesh cry out for the living

God.

84:3 Even the sparrow has found a home,

And the swallow a nest for herself,

Where she may lay her young-

Even Your altars, O Yahweh of hosts,

My King and my God.

84:4 Blessed are those who dwell in Your house;

They will still be praising You. Selah

84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in

You,

Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

84:6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca,

They make it a spring;

The rain also covers it with pools.

84:7 They go from strength to strength;

Each one appears before Yahweh in Zion.

84:8 O Yahweh the God of hosts, hear my

prayer;

Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah

84:9 O Yahweh, behold our shield,

And look upon the face of Your anointed.

84:10 For a day in Your courts is better than a

thousand.

I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of

my God

Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

84:11 For Yahweh the God is a sun and shield;

Yahweh will give grace and glory;

No good thing will He withhold

From those who walk uprightly.

84:12 O Yahweh of hosts,

Blessed is the man who trusts in You!

Psalms 85:

85:1 Lord, You have been favorable to Your

land;

You have brought back the captivity of Jacob.

85:2 You have forgiven the iniquity of Your

people;

You have covered all their sin. Selah

85:3 You have taken away all Your wrath;

You have turned from the fierceness of Your

anger.

85:4 Restore us, O Yahweh of our salvation,

And cause Your anger toward us to cease.

85:5 Will You be angry with us forever?

Will You prolong Your anger to all generations?

85:6 Will You not revive us again,

That Your people may rejoice in You?

85:7 Show us Your mercy, Yahweh,

And grant us Your salvation.

85:8 I will hear what the God Yahweh will

speak,

For He will speak peace

To His people and to His saints;

But let them not turn back to folly.

85:9 Surely His salvation is near to those who

fear Him, That glory may dwell in our land.

85:10 Mercy and truth have met together;

Righteousness and peace have kissed.

85:11 Truth shall spring out of the earth,

And righteousness shall look down from heaven.

85:12 Yes, Yahweh will give what is good;

And our land will yield its increase.

85:13 Righteousness will go before Him,

And shall make His footsteps our pathway.

 

Psalms 86:

86:1 Bow down Your ear, O Yahweh, hear me;

For I am poor and needy.

86:2 Preserve my life, for I am holy;

You are my God;

Save Your servant who trusts in You!

86:3 Be merciful to me, O Lord,

For I cry to You all day long.

86:4 Rejoice the spirit of Your servant,

For to You, O Lord, I lift up my spirit.

86:5 For You, Lord, are good, and ready to

forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who

call upon You.

86:6 Give ear, O Yahweh, to my prayer;

And attend to the voice of my supplications.

86:7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon

You,

For You will answer me.

86:8 Among the gods there is none like You, O

Lord;

Nor are there any works like Your works.

86:9 All nations whom You have made

Shall come and worship before You, O Lord,

And shall glorify Your name.

86:10 For You are great, and do wondrous

things;

You alone are God.

86:11 Teach me Your way, O Yahweh;

I will walk in Your truth;

Unite my heart to fear Your name.

86:12 I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all

my heart,

And I will glorify Your name forevermore.

86:13 For great is Your mercy toward me,

And You have delivered my body from the

depths of Sheol.

86:14 O Yahweh, the proud have risen against

me,

And a mob of violent men have sought my life,

And have not set You before them.

86:15 But You, O Lord, are a God full of

compassion, and gracious,

Longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.

86:16 Oh, turn to me, and have mercy on me!

Give Your strength to Your servant,

And save the son of Your maidservant.

86:17 Show me a sign for good,

That those who hate me may see it and be

ashamed,

Because You, Yahweh, have helped me and

comforted me.

 

Psalms 87:

87:1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.

87:2 Yahweh loves the gates of Zion

More than all the dwellings of Jacob.

87:3 Glorious things are spoken of you,

O city of Yahweh! Selah

87:4 "I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon

to those who know Me;

Behold, O Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia:

'This one was born there.' "

87:5 And of Zion it will be said,

"This one and that one were born in her;

And the Most High Himself shall establish her."

87:6 Yahweh will record,

When He registers the peoples:

"This one was born there." Selah

87:7 Both the singers and the players on

instruments say,

"All my springs are in you."

 

Psalms 88:

88:1 O Yahweh, God of my salvation,

I have cried out day and night before You.

88:2 Let my prayer come before You;

Incline Your ear to my cry.

88:3 For my body is full of troubles,

And my life draws near to the grave.

88:4 I am counted with those who go down to

the pit;

I am like a man who has no strength,

88:5 Adrift among the dead,

Like the slain who lie in the grave,

Whom You remember no more,

And who are cut off from Your hand.

88:6 You have laid me in the lowest pit,

In darkness, in the depths.

88:7 Your wrath lies heavy upon me,

And You have afflicted me with all Your waves.

Selah

88:8 You have put away my acquaintances far

from me;

You have made me an abomination to them;

I am shut up, and I cannot get out;

88:9 My eye wastes away because of affliction.

Yahweh, I have called daily upon You;

I have stretched out my hands to You.

88:10 Will You work wonders for the dead?

Shall the dead arise and praise You? Selah

88:11 Shall Your lovingkindness be declared in

the grave?

Or Your faithfulness in the place of destruction?

88:12 Shall Your wonders be known in the dark?

And Your righteousness in the land of

forgetfulness?

88:13 But to You I have cried out, O Yahweh,

And in the morning my prayer comes before

You.

88:14 Yahweh, why do You cast off my body?

Why do You hide Your face from me?

88:15 I have been afflicted and ready to die from

my youth;

I suffer Your terrors;

I am distraught.

88:16 Your fierce wrath has gone over me;

Your terrors have cut me off.

88:17 They came around me all day long like

water;

They engulfed me altogether.

88:18 Loved one and friend You have put far

from me,

And my acquaintances into darkness.

 

Psalms 89:

89:1 I will sing of the mercies of Yahweh

forever;

With my mouth will I make known Your

faithfulness to all generations.

89:2 For I have said, "Mercy shall be built up

forever;

Your faithfulness You shall establish in the very

heavens."

89:3 "I have made a covenant with My chosen,

I have sworn to My servant David:

89:4 'Your seed I will establish forever,

And build up your throne to all generations.' "

Selah

89:5 And the heavens will praise Your wonders,

O Yahweh;

Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the

saints.

89:6 For who in the heavens can be compared to

Yahweh?

Who among the sons of the mighty can be

likened to Yahweh?

89:7 Yahweh is greatly to be feared in the

assembly of the saints,

And to be held in reverence by all those around

Him.

89:8 O Yahweh the God of hosts,

Who is mighty like You, O Yahweh?

Your faithfulness also surrounds You.

89:9 You rule the raging of the sea;

When its waves rise, You still them.

89:10 You have broken Rahab in pieces, as one

who is slain;

You have scattered Your enemies with Your

mighty arm.

89:11 The heavens are Yours, the earth also is

Yours;

The world and all its fullness, You have founded

them.

89:12 The north and the south, You have created

them;

Tabor and Hermon rejoice in Your name.

89:13 You have a mighty arm;

Strong is Your hand, and high is Your right

hand.

89:14 Righteousness and justice are the

foundation of Your throne;

Mercy and truth go before Your face.

89:15 Blessed are the people who know the

joyful sound!

They walk, O Yahweh, in the light of Your

countenance.

89:16 In Your name they rejoice all day long,

And in Your righteousness they are exalted.

89:17 For You are the glory of their strength,

And in Your favor our horn is exalted.

89:18 For our shield belongs to Yahweh,

And our king to the Holy One of Israel.

89:19 Then You spoke in a vision to Your holy

one,

And said: "I have given help to one who is

mighty;

I have exalted one chosen from the people.

89:20 I have found My servant David;

With My holy oil I have anointed him,

89:21 With whom My hand shall be established;

Also My arm shall strengthen him.

89:22 The enemy shall not outwit him,

Nor the son of wickedness afflict him.

89:23 I will beat down his foes before his face,

And plague those who hate him.

89:24 "But My faithfulness and My mercy shall

be with him,

And in My name his horn shall be exalted.

89:25 Also I will set his hand over the sea,

And his right hand over the rivers.

89:26 He shall cry to Me, 'You are my Father,

My God, and the rock of my salvation.'

89:27 Also I will make him My firstborn,

The highest of the kings of the earth.

89:28 My mercy I will keep for him forever,

And My covenant shall stand firm with him.

89:29 His seed also I will make to endure

forever,

And his throne as the days of heaven.

89:30 "If his sons forsake My law

And do not walk in My judgments,

89:31 If they break My statutes

And do not keep My commandments,

89:32 Then I will punish their transgression with

the rod,

And their iniquity with stripes.

89:33 Nevertheless My lovingkindness I will not

utterly take from him,

Nor allow My faithfulness to fail.

89:34 My covenant I will not break,

Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.

89:35 Once I have sworn by My holiness;

I will not lie to David:

89:36 His seed shall endure forever,

And his throne as the sun before Me;

89:37 It shall be established forever like the

moon,

Even like the faithful witness in the sky." Selah

89:38 But You have cast off and abhorred,

You have been furious with Your anointed.

89:39 You have renounced the covenant of Your

servant;

You have profaned his crown by casting it to the

ground.

89:40 You have broken down all his hedges;

You have brought his strongholds to ruin.

89:41 All who pass by the way plunder him;

He is a reproach to his neighbors.

89:42 You have exalted the right hand of his

adversaries;

You have made all his enemies rejoice.

89:43 You have also turned back the edge of his

sword,

And have not sustained him in the battle.

89:44 You have made his glory cease,

And cast his throne down to the ground.

89:45 The days of his youth You have shortened;

You have covered him with shame. Selah

89:46 How long, Yahweh?

Will You hide Yourself forever?

Will Your wrath burn like fire?

89:47 Remember how short my time is;

For what futility have You created all the

children of men?

Psalms 90:

89:48 What man can live and not see death?

Can he deliver his life from the power of the

grave? Selah

89:49 Lord, where are Your former

lovingkindnesses,

Which You swore to David in Your truth?

89:50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of Your

servants-

How I bear in my bosom the reproach of all the

many peoples,

89:51 With which Your enemies have

reproached, O Yahweh,

With which they have reproached the footsteps

of Your anointed.

89:52 Blessed be Yahweh forevermore!

Amam and Amam.

 

Psalms 90:

90:1 Yahweh, You have been our dwelling place

in all generations.

90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth,

Or ever You had formed the earth and the world,

Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are

Yahweh.

90:3 You turn man to destruction,

And say, "Return, O children of men."

90:4 For a thousand years in Your sight

Are like yesterday when it is past,

And like a watch in the night.

90:5 You carry them away like a flood;

They are like a sleep.

In the morning they are like grass which grows

up:

90:6 In the morning it flourishes and grows up;

In the evening it is cut down and withers.

90:7 For we have been consumed by Your anger,

And by Your wrath we are terrified.

90:8 You have set our iniquities before You,

Our secret sins in the light of Your countenance.

90:9 For all our days have passed away in Your

wrath;

We finish our years like a sigh.

90:10 The days of our lives are seventy years;

And if by reason of strength they are eighty

years,

Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow;

For it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

90:11 Who knows the power of Your anger?

For as the fear of You, so is Your wrath.

90:12 So teach us to number our days,

That we may gain a heart of wisdom.

90:13 Return, O Yahweh!

How long?

And have compassion on Your servants.

90:14 Oh, satisfy us early with Your mercy,

That we may rejoice and be glad all our days!

90:15 Make us glad according to the days in

which You have afflicted us,

The years in which we have seen evil.

90:16 Let Your work appear to Your servants,

And Your glory to their children.

90:17 And let the beauty of Yahweh our God be

upon us,

And establish the work of our hands for us;

Yes, establish the work of our hands.

 

Psalms 91:

91:1 He who dwells in the secret place of the

Most High

Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

91:2 I will say of Yahweh, "He is my refuge and

my fortress;

My God, in Him I will trust."

91:3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare

of the fowler

And from the perilous pestilence.

91:4 He shall cover you with His feathers,

And under His wings you shall take refuge;

His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

91:5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by

night,

Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

91:6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,

Nor of the destruction that lays waste at

noonday.

91:7 A thousand may fall at your side,

And ten thousand at your right hand;

But it shall not come near you.

91:8 Only with your eyes shall you look,

And see the reward of the wicked.

91:9 Because you have made Yahweh, who is

my refuge,

Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

91:10 No evil shall befall you,

Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;

91:11 For He shall give His angels charge over

you,

To keep you in all your ways.

91:12 In their hands they shall bear you up,

Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

91:13 You shall tread upon the lion and the

cobra,

The young lion and the serpent you shall trample

underfoot.

91:14 "Because he has set his love upon Me,

therefore I will deliver him;

I will set him on high, because he has known My

name.

91:15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer

him;

I will be with him in trouble;

I will deliver him and honor him.

91:16 With long life I will satisfy him,

And show him My salvation."

 

Psalms 92:

92:1 It is good to give thanks to Yahweh,

And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;

92:2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the

morning,

And Your faithfulness every night,

92:3 On an instrument of ten strings,

On the lute,

And on the harp,

With harmonious sound.

92:4 For You, Yahweh, have made me glad

through Your work;

I will triumph in the works of Your hands.

92:5 O Yahweh, how great are Your works!

Your thoughts are very deep.

92:6 A senseless man does not know,

Nor does a fool understand this.

92:7 When the wicked spring up like grass,

And when all the workers of iniquity flourish,

It is that they may be destroyed forever.

92:8 But You, Yahweh, are on high forevermore.

92:9 For behold, Your enemies, O Yahweh,

For behold, Your enemies shall perish;

All the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

92:10 But my horn You have exalted like a wild

ox;

I have been anointed with fresh oil.

92:11 My eye also has seen my desire on my

enemies;

My ears hear my desire on the wicked

Who rise up against me.

92:12 The righteous shall flourish like a palm

tree,

He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

92:13 Those who are planted in the house of

Yahweh

Shall flourish in the courts of our God.

92:14 They shall still bear fruit in old age;

They shall be fresh and flourishing,

92:15 To declare that Yahweh is upright;

He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in

Him.

 

Psalms 93:

93:1 Yahweh reigns, He is clothed with majesty;

Yahweh is clothed,

He has girded Himself with strength.

Surely the world is established, so that it cannot

be moved.

93:2 Your throne is established from of old;

You are from everlasting.

93:3 The floods have lifted up, O Yahweh,

The floods have lifted up their voice;

The floods lift up their waves.

93:4 Yahweh on high is mightier

Than the noise of many waters,

Than the mighty waves of the sea.

93:5 Your testimonies are very sure;

Holiness adorns Your house,

O Yahweh, forever.

 

Psalms 94:

94:1 O Yahweh the God, to whom vengeance

belongs-

O Yahweh, to whom vengeance belongs, shine

forth!

94:2 Rise up, O Judge of the earth;

Render punishment to the proud.

94:3 Yahweh, how long will the wicked,

How long will the wicked triumph?

94:4 They utter speech, and speak insolent

things;

All the workers of iniquity boast in themselves.

94:5 They break in pieces Your people, O

Yahweh,

And afflict Your heritage.

94:6 They slay the widow and the stranger,

And murder the fatherless.

94:7 Yet they say, "Yahweh does not see,

Nor does the God of Jacob understand."

94:8 Understand, you senseless among the

people;

And you fools, when will you be wise?

94:9 He who planted the ear, shall He not hear?

He who formed the eye, shall He not see?

94:10 He who instructs the nations, shall He not

correct,

He who teaches man knowledge?

94:11 Yahweh knows the thoughts of man,

That they are futile.

94:12 Blessed is the man whom You instruct, O

Yahweh,

And teach out of Your law,

94:13 That You may give him rest from the days

of adversity,

Until the pit is dug for the wicked.

94:14 For Yahweh will not cast off His people,

Nor will He forsake His inheritance.

94:15 But judgment will return to righteousness,

And all the upright in heart will follow it.

94:16 Who will rise up for me against the

evildoers?

Who will stand up for me against the workers of

iniquity?

94:17 Unless Yahweh had been my help,

My body would soon have settled in silence.

94:18 If I say, "My foot slips,"

Your mercy, O Yahweh, will hold me up.

94:19 In the multitude of my anxieties within

me,

Your comforts delight my spirit.

94:20 Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises

evil by law,

Have fellowship with You?

94:21 They gather together against the life of the

righteous,

And condemn innocent blood.

94:22 But Yahweh has been my defense,

And my God the rock of my refuge.

94:23 He has brought on them their own

iniquity,

And shall cut them off in their own wickedness;

Yahweh our God shall cut them off.

 

Psalms 95:

95:1 Oh come, let us sing to Yahweh!

Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our

salvation.

95:2 Let us come before His presence with

thanksgiving;

Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.

95:3 For Yahweh is the great God,

And the great King above all gods.

95:4 In His hand are the deep places of the earth;

The heights of the hills are His also.

95:5 The sea is His, for He made it;

And His hands formed the dry land.

95:6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down;

Let us kneel before Yahweh our Maker.

95:7 For He is our God,

And we are the people of His pasture,

And the sheep of His hand.

Today, if you will hear His voice:

95:8 "Do not harden your hearts, as in the

rebellion,

As in the day of trial in the wilderness,

95:9 When your fathers tested Me;

They tried Me, though they saw My work.

95:10 For forty years I was grieved with that

generation,

And said, 'It is a people who go astray in their

hearts,

And they do not know My ways.'

95:11 So I swore in My wrath,

'They shall not enter My rest.' "

 

Psalms 96:

96:1 Oh, sing to Yahweh a new song!

Sing to Yahweh, all the earth.

96:2 Sing to Yahweh, bless His name;

Proclaim the good news of His salvation from

day to day.

96:3 Declare His glory among the nations,

His wonders among all peoples.

96:4 For Yahweh is great and greatly to be

praised;

He is to be feared above all gods.

96:5 For all the gods of the peoples are idols,

But Yahweh made the skies.

96:6 Honor and majesty are before Him;

Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.

96:7 Give to Yahweh, O families of the peoples,

Give to Yahweh glory and strength.

96:8 Give to Yahweh the glory due His name;

Bring an offering, and come into His courts.

96:9 Oh, worship Yahweh in the beauty of

holiness!

Tremble before Him, all the earth.

96:10 Say among the nations, "Yahweh reigns;

The world also is firmly established,

It shall not be moved;

He shall judge the peoples righteously."

96:11 Let the skies rejoice, and let the earth be

glad;

Let the sea roar, and all its fullness;

96:12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it.

Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice

before Yahweh.

96:13 For He is coming, for He is coming to

judge the earth.

He shall judge the world with righteousness,

And the peoples with His truth.

 

Psalms 97:

97:1 Yahweh reigns;

Let the earth rejoice;

Let the multitude of isles be glad!

97:2 Clouds and darkness surround Him;

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of

His throne.

97:3 A fire goes before Him,

And burns up His enemies round about.

97:4 His lightnings light the world;

The earth sees and trembles.

97:5 The mountains melt like wax at the

presence of Yahweh,

At the presence of Yahweh of the whole earth.

97:6 The skies declare His righteousness,

And all the peoples see His glory.

97:7 Let all be put to shame who serve carved

images,

Who boast of idols.

Worship Him, all you gods.

97:8 Zion hears and is glad,

And the daughters of Judah rejoice

Because of Your judgments, O Yahweh.

97:9 For You, Yahweh, are most high above all

the earth;

You are exalted far above all gods.

97:10 You who love Yahweh, hate evil!

He preserves the spirits of His saints;

He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.

97:11 Light is sown for the righteous,

And gladness for the upright in heart.

97:12 Rejoice in Yahweh, you righteous,

And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy

name.

Psalms 98:

98:1 Oh, sing to Yahweh a new song!

For He has done marvelous things;

His right hand and His holy arm have gained

Him the victory.

98:2 Yahweh has made known His salvation;

His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of

the nations.

98:3 He has remembered His mercy and His

faithfulness to the house of Israel;

All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation

of our God.

98:4 Shout joyfully to Yahweh, all the earth;

Break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises.

98:5 Sing to Yahweh with the harp,

With the harp and the sound of a psalm,

98:6 With trumpets and the sound of a horn;

Shout joyfully before Yahweh, the King.

98:7 Let the sea roar, and all its fullness,

The world and those who dwell in it;

98:8 Let the rivers clap their hands;

Let the hills be joyful together before Yahweh,

98:9 For He is coming to judge the earth.

With righteousness He shall judge the world,

And the peoples with equity.

 

Psalms 99:

99:1 Yahweh reigns;

Let the peoples tremble!

He dwells between the cherubim;

Let the earth be moved!

99:2 Yahweh is great in Zion,

And He is high above all the peoples.

99:3 Let them praise Your great and awesome

name-

He is holy.

99:4 The King's strength also loves justice;

You have established equity;

You have executed justice and righteousness in

Jacob.

99:5 Exalt Yahweh our God,

And worship at His footstool-

He is holy.

99:6 Moses and Aaron were among His priests,

And Samuel was among those who called upon

His name;

They called upon Yahweh, and He answered

them.

99:7 He spoke to them in the cloudy pillar;

They kept His testimonies and the ordinance He

gave them.

99:8 You answered them, O Yahweh our God;

You were to them Yahweh-Who-Forgives,

Though You took vengeance on their deeds.

99:9 Exalt Yahweh our God,

And worship at His holy hill;

For Yahweh our God is holy.

 

Psalms 100:

100:1 Make a joyful shout to Yahweh, all you

lands!

100:2 Serve Yahweh with gladness;

Come before His presence with singing.

100:3 Know that Yahweh, He is God;

It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;

We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

100:4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,

And into His courts with praise.

Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

100:5 For Yahweh is good;

His mercy is everlasting,

And His truth endures to all generations.

 

Psalms 101:

101:1 I will sing of mercy and justice;

To You, O Yahweh, I will sing praises.

101:2 I will behave wisely in a perfect way.

Oh, when will You come to me?

I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

101:3 I will set nothing wicked before my eyes;

I hate the work of those who fall away;

It shall not cling to me.

101:4 A perverse heart shall depart from me;

I will not know wickedness.

101:5 Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor,

Him I will destroy;

The one who has a haughty look and a proud

heart,

Him I will not endure.

101:6 My eyes shall be on the faithful of the

land,

That they may dwell with me;

He who walks in a perfect way,

He shall serve me.

101:7 He who works deceit shall not dwell

within my house;

He who tells lies shall not continue in my

presence.

101:8 Early I will destroy all the wicked of the

land,

That I may cut off all the evildoers from the city

of Yahweh.

 

Psalms 102:

102:1 Hear my prayer, O Yahweh,

And let my cry come to You.

102:2 Do not hide Your face from me in the day

of my trouble;

Incline Your ear to me;

In the day that I call, answer me speedily.

102:3 For my days are consumed like smoke,

And my bones are burned like a hearth.

102:4 My heart is stricken and withered like

grass,

So that I forget to eat my bread.

102:5 Because of the sound of my groaning

My bones cling to my skin.

102:6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness;

I am like an owl of the desert.

102:7 I lie awake,

And am like a sparrow alone on the housetop.

102:8 My enemies reproach me all day long,

Those who deride me swear an oath against me.

102:9 For I have eaten ashes like bread,

And mingled my drink with weeping,

102:10 Because of Your indignation and Your

wrath;

For You have lifted me up and cast me away.

102:11 My days are like a shadow that

lengthens,

And I wither away like grass.

102:12 But You, O Yahweh, shall endure

forever,

And the remembrance of Your name to all

generations.

102:13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion;

For the time to favor her,

Yes, the set time, has come.

102:14 For Your servants take pleasure in her

stones,

And show favor to her dust.

102:15 So the nations shall fear the name of

Yahweh,

And all the kings of the earth Your glory.

102:16 For Yahweh shall build up Zion;

He shall appear in His glory.

102:17 He shall regard the prayer of the

destitute,

And shall not despise their prayer.

102:18 This will be written for the generation to

come,

That a people yet to be created may praise

Yahweh.

102:19 For He looked down from the height of

His sanctuary;

From heaven Yahweh viewed the earth,

102:20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner,

To release those appointed to death,

102:21 To declare the name of Yahweh in Zion,

And His praise in Jerusalem,

102:22 When the peoples are gathered together,

And the kingdoms, to serve Yahweh.

102:23 He weakened my strength in the way;

He shortened my days.

102:24 I said, "O my God,

Do not take me away in the midst of my days;

Your years are throughout all generations.

102:25 Of old You laid the foundation of the

earth,

And the heavens are the work of Your hands.

102:26 They will perish, but You will endure;

Yes, they will all grow old like a garment;

Like a cloak You will change them,

And they will be changed.

102:27 But You are the same,

And Your years will have no end.

102:28 The children of Your servants will

continue,

And their descendants will be established before

You."

 

Psalms 103:

103:1 Bless Yahweh, O my spirit;

And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

103:2 Bless Yahweh, O my spirit,

And forget not all His benefits:

103:3 Who forgives all your iniquities,

Who heals all your diseases,

103:4 Who redeems your life from destruction,

Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender

mercies,

103:5 Who satisfies your mouth with good

things,

So that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

103:6 Yahweh executes righteousness

And justice for all who are oppressed.

103:7 He made known His ways to Moses,

His acts to the children of Israel.

103:8 Yahweh is merciful and gracious,

Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.

103:9 He will not always strive with us,

Nor will He keep His anger forever.

103:10 He has not dealt with us according to our

sins,

Nor punished us according to our iniquities.

103:11 For as the skies are high above the earth,

So great is His mercy toward those who fear

Him;

103:12 As far as the east is from the west,

So far has He removed our transgressions from

us.

103:13 As a father pities his children,

So Yahweh pities those who fear Him.

103:14 For He knows our frame;

He remembers that we are dust.

103:15 As for man, his days are like grass;

As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.

103:16 For the wind passes over it, and it is

gone,

And its place remembers it no more.

103:17 But the mercy of Yahweh is from

everlasting to everlasting

On those who fear Him,

And His righteousness to children's children,

103:18 To such as keep His covenant,

And to those who remember His commandments

to do them.

103:19 Yahweh has established His throne in

heaven,

And His kingdom rules over all.

103:20 Bless Yahweh, you His angels,

Who excel in strength, who do His word,

Heeding the voice of His word.

103:21 Bless Yahweh, all you His hosts,

You ministers of His, who do His pleasure.

103:22 Bless Yahweh, all His works,

In all places of His dominion.

Bless Yahweh, O my spirit!

 

Psalms 104:

104:1 Bless Yahweh, O my spirit!

O Yahweh my God, You are very great:

You are clothed with honor and majesty,

104:2 Who cover Yourself with light as with a

garment,

Who stretch out the skies like a curtain.

104:3 He lays the beams of His upper chambers

in the waters,

Who makes the clouds His chariot,

Who walks on the wings of the wind,

104:4 Who makes His angels spirits,

His ministers a flame of fire.

104:5 You who laid the foundations of the earth,

So that it should not be moved forever,

104:6 You covered it with the deep as with a

garment;

The waters stood above the mountains.

104:7 At Your rebuke they fled;

At the voice of Your thunder they hastened

away.

104:8 They went up over the mountains;

They went down into the valleys,

To the place which You founded for them.

104:9 You have set a boundary that they may not

pass over,

That they may not return to cover the earth.

104:10 He sends the springs into the valleys,

They flow among the hills.

104:11 They give drink to every beast of the

field;

The wild donkeys quench their thirst.

104:12 By them the birds of the skies have their

home;

They sing among the branches.

104:13 He waters the hills from His upper

chambers;

The earth is satisfied with the fruit of Your

works.

104:14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle,

And vegetation for the service of man,

That he may bring forth food from the earth,

104:15 And wine that makes glad the heart of

man,

Oil to make his face shine,

And bread which strengthens man's heart.

104:16 The trees of Yahweh are full of sap,

The cedars of Lebanon which He planted,

104:17 Where the birds make their nests;

The stork has her home in the fir trees.

104:18 The high hills are for the wild goats;

The cliffs are a refuge for the rock badgers.

104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons;

The sun knows its going down.

104:20 You make darkness, and it is night,

In which all the beasts of the forest creep about.

104:21 The young lions roar after their prey,

And seek their food from Yahweh.

104:22 When the sun rises, they gather together

And lie down in their dens.

104:23 Man goes out to his work

And to his labor until the evening.

104:24 O Yahweh, how manifold are Your

works!

In wisdom You have made them all.

The earth is full of Your possessions-

104:25 This great and wide sea,

In which are innumerable teeming things,

Living things both small and great.

104:26 There the ships sail about;

There is that Leviathan

Which You have made to play there.

104:27 These all wait for You, That You may

give them their food in due season.

104:28 What You give them they gather in;

You open Your hand, they are filled with good.

104:29 You hide Your face, they are troubled;

You take away their breath, they die and return

to their dust.

104:30 You send forth Your Spirit, they are

created;

And You renew the face of the earth.

104:31 May the glory of Yahweh endure forever;

May Yahweh rejoice in His works.

104:32 He looks on the earth, and it trembles;

He touches the hills, and they smoke.

104:33 I will sing to Yahweh as long as I live;

I will sing praise to my God while I have my

being.

104:34 May my meditation be sweet to Him;

I will be glad in Yahweh.

104:35 May sinners be consumed from the earth,

And the wicked be no more.

Bless Yahweh, O my spirit!

Praise Yahweh!

 

Psalms 105:

105:1 Oh, give thanks to Yahweh!

Call upon His name;

Make known His deeds among the peoples!

105:2 Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him;

Talk of all His wondrous works!

105:3 Glory in His holy name;

Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek Yahweh!

105:4 Seek Yahweh and His strength;

Seek His face evermore!

105:5 Remember His marvelous works which He

has done,

His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth,

105:6 O seed of Abraham His servant,

You children of Jacob, His chosen ones!

105:7 He is Yahweh our God;

His judgments are in all the earth.

105:8 He remembers His covenant forever,

The word which He commanded, for a thousand

generations,

105:9 The covenant which He made with

Abraham,

And His oath to Isaac,

105:10 And confirmed it to Jacob for a statute,

To Israel as an everlasting covenant,

105:11 Saying, "To you I will give the land of

Canaan

As the allotment of your inheritance,"

105:12 When they were few in number,

Indeed very few, and strangers in it.

105:13 When they went from one nation to another,

From one kingdom to another people,

105:14 He permitted no one to do them wrong;

Yes, He rebuked kings for their sakes,

105:15 Saying, "Do not touch My anointed ones,

And do My prophets no harm."

105:16 Moreover He called for a famine in the

land;

He destroyed all the provision of bread.

105:17 He sent a man before them-

Joseph-who was sold as a slave.

105:18 They hurt his feet with fetters,

He was laid in irons.

105:19 Until the time that his word came to pass,

The word of Yahweh tested him.

105:20 The king sent and released him,

The ruler of the people let him go free.

105:21 He made him lord of his house,

And ruler of all his possessions,

105:22 To bind his princes at his pleasure,

And teach his elders wisdom.

105:23 Israel also came into Egypt,

And Jacob dwelt in the land of Ham.

105:24 He increased His people greatly,

And made them stronger than their enemies.

105:25 He turned their heart to hate His people,

To deal craftily with His servants.

105:26 He sent Moses His servant,

And Aaron whom He had chosen.

105:27 They performed His signs among them,

And wonders in the land of Ham.

105:28 He sent darkness, and made it dark;

And they did not rebel against His word.

105:29 He turned their waters into blood,

And killed their fish.

105:30 Their land abounded with frogs,

Even in the chambers of their kings.

105:31 He spoke, and there came swarms of

flies,

And lice in all their territory.

105:32 He gave them hail for rain,

And flaming fire in their land.

105:33 He struck their vines also, and their fig

trees,

And splintered the trees of their territory.

105:34 He spoke, and locusts came,

Young locusts without number,

105:35 And ate up all the vegetation in their

land,

And devoured the fruit of their ground.

105:36 He also destroyed all the firstborn in their

land,

The first of all their strength.

105:37 He also brought them out with silver and

gold,

And there was none feeble among His tribes.

105:38 Egypt was glad when they departed,

For the fear of them had fallen upon them.

105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering,

And fire to give light in the night.

105:40 The people asked, and He brought quail,

And satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

105:41 He opened the rock, and water gushed

out;

It ran in the dry places like a river.

105:42 For He remembered His holy promise,

And Abraham His servant.

105:43 He brought out His people with joy,

His chosen ones with gladness.

105:44 He gave them the lands of the Gentiles,

And they inherited the labor of the nations,

105:45 That they might observe His statutes

And keep His laws.

Praise Yahweh!

 

Psalms 106:

106:1 Praise Yahweh!

Oh, give thanks to Yahweh, for He is good!

For His mercy endures forever.

106:2 Who can utter the mighty acts of Yahweh?

Who can declare all His praise?

106:3 Blessed are those who keep justice,

And he who does righteousness at all times!

106:4 Remember me, O Yahweh, with the favor

You have toward Your people;

Oh, visit me with Your salvation,

106:5 That I may see the benefit of Your chosen

ones,

That I may rejoice in the gladness of Your

nation,

That I may glory with Your inheritance.

106:6 We have sinned with our fathers,

We have committed iniquity,

We have done wickedly.

106:7 Our fathers in Egypt did not understand

Your wonders;

They did not remember the multitude of Your

mercies,

But rebelled by the sea-the Red Sea.

106:8 Nevertheless He saved them for His

name's sake,

That He might make His mighty power known.

106:9 He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it dried

up;

So He led them through the depths,

As through the wilderness.

106:10 He saved them from the hand of him who

hated them,

And redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.

106:11 The waters covered their enemies;

There was not one of them left.

106:12 Then they believed His words;

They sang His praise.

106:13 They soon forgot His works;

They did not wait for His counsel,

106:14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness,

And tested Yahweh in the desert.

106:15 And He gave them their request,

But sent leanness into their body.

106:16 When they envied Moses in the camp,

And Aaron the saint of Yahweh,

106:17 The earth opened up and swallowed

Dathan,

And covered the faction of Abiram.

106:18 A fire was kindled in their company;

The flame burned up the wicked.

106:19 They made a calf in Horeb,

And worshiped the molded image.

106:20 Thus they changed their glory

Into the image of an ox that eats grass.

106:21 They forgot Yahweh their Savior,

Who had done great things in Egypt,

106:22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham,

Awesome things by the Red Sea.

106:23 Therefore He said that He would destroy

them,

Had not Moses His chosen one stood before Him

in the breach,

To turn away His wrath, lest He destroy them.

106:24 Then they despised the pleasant land;

They did not believe His word,

106:25 But complained in their tents,

And did not heed the voice of Yahweh.

106:26 Therefore He raised up His hand in an

oath against them,

To overthrow them in the wilderness,

106:27 To overthrow their descendants among

the nations,

And to scatter them in the lands.

106:28 They joined themselves also to Baal of

Peor,

And ate sacrifices made to the dead.

106:29 Thus they provoked Him to anger with

their deeds,

And the plague broke out among them.

106:30 Then Phinehas stood up and intervened,

And the plague was stopped.

106:31 And that was accounted to him for

righteousness

To all generations forevermore.

106:32 They angered Him also at the waters of

strife,

So that it went ill with Moses on account of

them;

106:33 Because they rebelled against His Spirit,

So that he spoke rashly with his lips.

106:34 They did not destroy the peoples,

Concerning whom Yahweh had commanded

them,

106:35 But they mingled with the Gentiles

And learned their works;

106:36 They served their idols,

Which became a snare to them.

106:37 They even sacrificed their sons

And their daughters to demons,

106:38 And shed innocent blood,

The blood of their sons and daughters,

Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;

And the land was polluted with blood.

106:39 Thus they were defiled by their own

works,

And played the harlot by their own deeds.

106:40 Therefore the wrath of Yahweh was

kindled against His people,

So that He abhorred His own inheritance.

106:41 And He gave them into the hand of the

Gentiles,

And those who hated them ruled over them.

106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them,

And they were brought into subjection under

their hand.

106:43 Many times He delivered them;

But they rebelled in their counsel,

And were brought low for their iniquity.

106:44 Nevertheless He regarded their affliction,

When He heard their cry;

106:45 And for their sake He remembered His

covenant,

And relented according to the multitude of His

mercies.

106:46 He also made them to be pitied

By all those who carried them away captive.

106:47 Save us, O Yahweh our God,

And gather us from among the Gentiles,

To give thanks to Your holy name,

To triumph in Your praise.

106:48 Blessed be Yahweh the God of Israel

From everlasting to everlasting!

And let all the people say, "Amam!"

Praise Yahweh!

 

Psalms 107:

107:1 Oh, give thanks to Yahweh, for He is

good!

For His mercy endures forever.

107:2 Let the redeemed of Yahweh say so,

Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the

enemy,

107:3 And gathered out of the lands,

From the east and from the west,

From the north and from the south.

107:4 They wandered in the wilderness in a

desolate way;

They found no city to dwell in.

107:5 Hungry and thirsty,

Their spirit fainted in them.

107:6 Then they cried out to Yahweh in their

trouble,

And He delivered them out of their distresses.

107:7 And He led them forth by the right way,

That they might go to a city for a dwelling place.

107:8 Oh, that men would give thanks to

Yahweh for His goodness,

And for His wonderful works to the children of

men!

107:9 For He satisfies the longing spirit,

And fills the hungry body with goodness.

107:10 Those who sat in darkness and in the

shadow of death,

Bound in affliction and irons-

107:11 Because they rebelled against the words

of Yahweh,

And despised the counsel of the Most High,

107:12 Therefore He brought down their heart

with labor;

They fell down, and there was none to help.

107:13 Then they cried out to Yahweh in their

trouble,

And He saved them out of their distresses.

107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the

shadow of death,

And broke their chains in pieces.

107:15 Oh, that men would give thanks to

Yahweh for His goodness,

And for His wonderful works to the children of

men!

107:16 For He has broken the gates of bronze,

And cut the bars of iron in two.

107:17 Fools, because of their transgression,

And because of their iniquities, were afflicted.

107:18 Their body abhorred all manner of food,

And they drew near to the gates of death.

107:19 Then they cried out to Yahweh in their

trouble,

And He saved them out of their distresses.

107:20 He sent His word and healed them,

And delivered them from their destructions.

107:21 Oh, that men would give thanks to

Yahweh for His goodness,

And for His wonderful works to the children of

men!

107:22 Let them sacrifice the sacrifices of

thanksgiving,

And declare His works with rejoicing.

107:23 Those who go down to the sea in ships,

Who do business on great waters,

107:24 They see the works of Yahweh,

And His wonders in the deep.

107:25 For He commands and raises the stormy

wind,

Which lifts up the waves of the sea.

107:26 They mount up to the skies,

They go down again to the depths;

Their body melts because of trouble.

107:27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a

drunken man,

And are at their wits' end.

107:28 Then they cry out to Yahweh in their

trouble,

And He brings them out of their distresses.

107:29 He calms the storm,

So that its waves are still.

107:30 Then they are glad because they are

quiet;

So He guides them to their desired haven.

107:31 Oh, that men would give thanks to

Yahweh for His goodness,

And for His wonderful works to the children of

men!

107:32 Let them exalt Him also in the assembly

of the people,

And praise Him in the company of the elders.

107:33 He turns rivers into a wilderness,

And the watersprings into dry ground;

107:34 A fruitful land into barrenness,

For the wickedness of those who dwell in it.

107:35 He turns a wilderness into pools of water,

And dry land into watersprings.

107:36 There He makes the hungry dwell,

That they may establish a city for a dwelling

place,

107:37 And sow fields and plant vineyards,

That they may yield a fruitful harvest.

107:38 He also blesses them, and they multiply

greatly;

And He does not let their cattle decrease.

107:39 When they are diminished and brought

low

Through oppression, affliction and sorrow,

107:40 He pours contempt on princes,

And causes them to wander in the wilderness

where there is no way;

107:41 Yet He sets the poor on high, far from

affliction,

And makes their families like a flock.

107:42 The righteous see it and rejoice,

And all iniquity stops its mouth.

107:43 Whoever is wise will observe these

things,

And they will understand the lovingkindness of

Yahweh.

 

Psalms 108:

108:1 O Yahweh, my heart is steadfast;

I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

108:2 Awake, lute and harp!

I will awaken the dawn.

108:3 I will praise You, O Yahweh, among the

peoples,

And I will sing praises to You among the

nations.

108:4 For Your mercy is great above the

heavens,

And Your truth reaches to the clouds.

108:5 Be exalted, O Yahweh, above the skies,

And Your glory above all the earth;

108:6 That Your beloved may be delivered,

Save with Your right hand, and hear me.

108:7 Yahweh has spoken in His holiness:

"I will rejoice;

I will divide Shechem

And measure out the Valley of Succoth.

108:8 Gilead is Mine; Manasseh is Mine;

Ephraim also is the helmet for My head;

Judah is My lawgiver.

108:9 Moab is My washpot;

Over Edom I will cast My shoe;

Over Philistia I will triumph."

108:10 Who will bring me into the strong city?

Who will lead me to Edom?

108:11 Is it not You, O Yahweh, who cast us

off? And You, O Yahweh, who did not go out

with our armies?

108:12 Give us help from trouble,

For the help of man is useless.

108:13 Through Yahweh we will do valiantly,

For it is He who shall tread down our enemies.

 

Psalms 109:

109:1 Do not keep silent,

O God of my praise!

109:2 For the mouth of the wicked and the

mouth of the deceitful

Have opened against me;

They have spoken against me with a lying

tongue.

109:3 They have also surrounded me with words

of hatred,

And fought against me without a cause.

109:4 In return for my love they are my accusers,

But I give myself to prayer.

109:5 Thus they have rewarded me evil for good,

And hatred for my love.

109:6 Set a wicked man over him,

And let an accuser stand at his right hand.

109:7 When he is judged, let him be found

guilty,

And let his prayer become sin.

109:8 Let his days be few,

And let another take his office.

109:9 Let his children be fatherless,

And his wife a widow.

109:10 Let his children continually be

vagabonds, and beg;

Let them seek their bread also from their

desolate places.

109:11 Let the creditor seize all that he has,

And let strangers plunder his labor.

109:12 Let there be none to extend mercy to him,

Nor let there be any to favor his fatherless

children.

 

Psalms 109:

109:13 Let his posterity be cut off,

And in the generation following let their name be

blotted out.

109:14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be

remembered before Yahweh,

And let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.

109:15 Let them be continually before Yahweh,

That He may cut off the memory of them from

the earth;

109:16 Because he did not remember to show

mercy,

But persecuted the poor and needy man,

That he might even slay the broken in heart.

109:17 As he loved cursing, so let it come to

him;

As he did not delight in blessing, so let it be far

from him.

109:18 As he clothed himself with cursing as

with his garment,

So let it enter his body like water,

And like oil into his bones.

109:19 Let it be to him like the garment which

covers him,

And for a belt with which he girds himself

continually.

109:20 Let this be Yahweh’s reward to my

accusers,

And to those who speak evil against my person.

109:21 But You, O Yahweh,

Deal with me for Your name's sake;

Because Your mercy is good, deliver me.

109:22 For I am poor and needy,

And my heart is wounded within me.

109:23 I am gone like a shadow when it

lengthens;

I am shaken off like a locust.

109:24 My knees are weak through fasting,

And my flesh is feeble from lack of fatness.

109:25 I also have become a reproach to them;

When they look at me, they shake their heads.

109:26 Help me, O Yahweh my God!

Oh, save me according to Your mercy,

109:27 That they may know that this is Your

hand-

That You, Yahweh, have done it!

109:28 Let them curse, but You bless;

When they arise, let them be ashamed,

But let Your servant rejoice.

109:29 Let my accusers be clothed with shame,

And let them cover themselves with their own

disgrace as with a mantle.

109:30 I will greatly praise Yahweh with my

mouth;

Yes, I will praise Him among the multitude.

109:31 For He shall stand at the right hand of the

poor,

To save him from those who condemn him.

 

Psalms 110:

110:1 Yahweh said to my Lord,

"Sit at My right hand,

Till I make Your enemies Your footstool."

110:2 Yahweh shall send the rod of Your

strength out of Zion.

Rule in the midst of Your enemies!

110:3 Your people shall be volunteers

In the day of Your power;

In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the

morning,

You have the dew of Your youth.

110:4 Yahweh has sworn

And will not relent,

"You are a priest forever

According to the order of Melchizedek."

110:5 Yahweh is at Your right hand;

He shall execute kings in the day of His wrath.

110:6 He shall judge among the nations,

He shall fill the places with dead bodies,

He shall execute the heads of many countries.

110:7 He shall drink of the brook by the

wayside;

Therefore He shall lift up the head.

Psalms 111:

111:1 Praise Yahweh!

I will praise Yahweh with my whole heart,

In the assembly of the upright and in the

congregation.

111:2 The works of Yahweh are great,

Studied by all who have pleasure in them.

111:3 His work is honorable and glorious,

And His righteousness endures forever.

111:4 He has made His wonderful works to be

remembered;

Yahweh is gracious and full of compassion.

111:5 He has given food to those who fear Him;

He will ever be mindful of His covenant.

111:6 He has declared to His people the power of

His works,

In giving them the heritage of the nations.

111:7 The works of His hands are verity and

justice;

All His precepts are sure.

111:8 They stand fast forever and ever,

And are done in truth and uprightness.

111:9 He has sent redemption to His people;

He has commanded His covenant forever:

Holy and awesome is His name.

111:10 The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of

wisdom;

A good understanding have all those who do His

commandments.

His praise endures forever.

 

Psalms 112:

112:1 Praise Yahweh!

Blessed is the man who fears Yahweh,

Who delights greatly in His commandments.

112:2 His descendants will be mighty on earth;

The generation of the upright will be blessed.

112:3 Wealth and riches will be in his house,

And his righteousness endures forever.

112:4 Unto the upright there arises light in the

darkness;

He is gracious, and full of compassion, and

righteous.

112:5 A good man deals graciously and lends;

He will guide his affairs with discretion.

112:6 Surely he will never be shaken;

The righteous will be in everlasting

remembrance.

112:7 He will not be afraid of evil tidings;

His heart is steadfast, trusting in Yahweh.

112:8 His heart is established;

He will not be afraid,

Until he sees his desire upon his enemies.

112:9 He has dispersed abroad,

He has given to the poor;

His righteousness endures forever;

His horn will be exalted with honor.

112:10 The wicked will see it and be grieved;

He will gnash his teeth and melt away;

The desire of the wicked shall perish.

 

Psalms 113:

113:1 Praise Yahweh!

Praise, O servants of Yahweh,

Praise the name of Yahweh!

113:2 Blessed be the name of Yahweh

From this time forth and forevermore!

113:3 From the rising of the sun to its going

down

Yahweh’s name is to be praised.

113:4 Yahweh is high above all nations,

His glory above the skies.

113:5 Who is like Yahweh our God,

Who dwells on high,

113:6 Who humbles Himself to behold

The things that are in the skies and in the earth?

113:7 He raises the poor out of the dust,

And lifts the needy out of the ash heap,

113:8 That He may seat him with princes-

With the princes of His people.

113:9 He grants the barren woman a home,

Like a joyful mother of children.

Praise Yahweh!

114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt,

The house of Jacob from a people of strange

language,

114:2 Judah became His sanctuary,

And Israel His dominion.

114:3 The sea saw it and fled;

Jordan turned back.

114:4 The mountains skipped like rams,

The little hills like lambs.

114:5 What ails you, O sea, that you fled?

O Jordan, that you turned back?

114:6 O mountains, that you skipped like rams?

O little hills, like lambs?

114:7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of

Yahweh,

At the presence of the God of Jacob,

114:8 Who turned the rock into a pool of water,

The flint into a fountain of waters.

 

Psalms 115:

115:1 Not unto us, O Yahweh, not unto us,

But to Your name give glory,

Because of Your mercy,

Because of Your truth.

115:2 Why should the Gentiles say,

"So where is their God?"

115:3 But our God is in heaven;

He does whatever He pleases.

115:4 Their idols are silver and gold,

The work of men's hands.

115:5 They have mouths, but they do not speak;

Eyes they have, but they do not see;

115:6 They have ears, but they do not hear;

Noses they have, but they do not smell;

115:7 They have hands, but they do not handle;

Feet they have, but they do not walk;

Nor do they mutter through their throat.

115:8 Those who make them are like them;

So is everyone who trusts in them.

115:9 O Israel, trust in Yahweh;

He is their help and their shield.

115:10 O house of Aaron, trust in Yahweh;

He is their help and their shield.

115:11 You who fear Yahweh, trust in Yahweh;

He is their help and their shield.

115:12 Yahweh has been mindful of us;

He will bless us;

He will bless the house of Israel;

He will bless the house of Aaron.

115:13 He will bless those who fear Yahweh,

Both small and great.

115:14 May Yahweh give you increase more and

more,

You and your children.

115:15 May you be blessed by Yahweh,

Who made heaven and earth.

115:16 The skie, even the heavens, are

Yahweh’s;

But the earth He has given to the children of

men.

115:17 The dead do not praise Yahweh,

Nor any who go down into silence.

115:18 But we will bless Yahweh

From this time forth and forevermore.

Praise Yahweh!

 

Psalms 116:

116:1 I love Yahweh, because He has heard

My voice and my supplications.

116:2 Because He has inclined His ear to me,

Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.

116:3 The pains of death surrounded me,

And the pangs of Sheol laid hold of me;

I found trouble and sorrow.

116:4 Then I called upon the name of Yahweh:

"O Yahweh, I implore You, deliver my spirit!"

116:5 Gracious is Yahweh, and righteous;

Yes, our God is merciful.

116:6 Yahweh preserves the simple;

I was brought low, and He saved me.

116:7 Return to your rest, O my spirit,

For Yahweh has dealt bountifully with you.

116:8 For You have delivered my spirit from

death,

My eyes from tears,

And my feet from falling.

116:9 I will walk before Yahweh

In the land of the living.

116:10 I believed, therefore I spoke,

"I am greatly afflicted."

116:11 I said in my haste,

"All men are liars."

116:12 What shall I render to Yahweh

For all His benefits toward me?

116:13 I will take up the cup of salvation,

And call upon the name of Yahweh.

116:14 I will pay my vows to Yahweh

Now in the presence of all His people.

116:15 Precious in the sight of Yahweh

Is the death of His saints.

116:16 O Yahweh, truly I am Your servant;

I am Your servant, the son of Your maidservant;

You have loosed my bonds.

116:17 I will offer to You the sacrifice of

thanksgiving,

And will call upon the name of Yahweh.

116:18 I will pay my vows to Yahweh

Now in the presence of all His people,

116:19 In the courts of Yahweh’s house,

In the midst of you, O Jerusalem.

Praise Yahweh!

 

Psalms 117:

117:1 Praise Yahweh, all you Gentiles!

Laud Him, all you peoples!

117:2 For His merciful kindness is great toward

us,

And the truth of Yahweh endures forever.

Praise Yahweh!

 

Psalms 118:

118:1 Oh, give thanks to Yahweh, for He is

good!

For His mercy endures forever.

118:2 Let Israel now say,

"His mercy endures forever."

118:3 Let the house of Aaron now say,

"His mercy endures forever."

118:4 Let those who fear Yahweh now say,

"His mercy endures forever."

118:5 I called on Yahweh in distress;

Yahweh answered me and set me in a broad

place.

118:6 Yahweh is on my side;

I will not fear.

What can man do to me?

118:7 Yahweh is for me among those who help

me;

Therefore I shall see my desire on those who

hate me.

118:8 It is better to trust in Yahweh

Than to put confidence in man.

118:9 It is better to trust in Yahweh

Than to put confidence in princes.

118:10 All nations surrounded me,

But in the name of Yahweh

I will destroy them.

118:11 They surrounded me,

Yes, they surrounded me;

But in the name of Yahweh I will destroy them.

118:12 They surrounded me like bees;

They were quenched like a fire of thorns;

For in the name of Yahweh I will destroy them.

118:13 You pushed me violently, that I might

fall,

But Yahweh helped me.

118:14 Yahweh is my strength and song,

And He has become my salvation.

118:15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation

Is in the tents of the righteous;

The right hand of Yahweh does valiantly.

118:16 The right hand of Yahweh is exalted;

The right hand of Yahweh does valiantly.

118:17 I shall not die, but live,

And declare the works of Yahweh.

118:18 Yahweh has chastened me severely,

But He has not given me over to death.

118:19 Open to me the gates of righteousness;

I will go through them,

And I will praise Yahweh.

118:20 This is the gate of Yahweh,

Through which the righteous shall enter.

118:21 I will praise You,

For You have answered me,

And have become my salvation.

118:22 The stone which the builders rejected

Has become the chief cornerstone.

118:23 This was Yahweh’s doing;

It is marvelous in our eyes.

118:24 This is the day Yahweh has made;

We will rejoice and be glad in it.

118:25 Save now, I pray, O Yahweh;

O Yahweh, I pray, send now prosperity.

118:26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of

Yahweh!

We have blessed you from the house of Yahweh.

118:27 God is Yahweh,

And He has given us light;

Bind the sacrifice with cords to the horns of the

altar.

118:28 You are my God, and I will praise You;

You are my God, I will exalt You.

118:29 Oh, give thanks to Yahweh, for He is

good!

For His mercy endures forever.

 

Psalms 119:

119:1 Blessed are the undefiled in the way,

Who walk in the law of Yahweh!

119:2 Blessed are those who keep His

testimonies,

Who seek Him with the whole heart!

119:3 They also do no iniquity;

They walk in His ways.

119:4 You have commanded us

To keep Your precepts diligently.

119:5 Oh, that my ways were directed

To keep Your statutes!

119:6 Then I would not be ashamed,

When I look into all Your commandments.

119:7 I will praise You with uprightness of heart,

When I learn Your righteous judgments.

119:8 I will keep Your statutes;

Oh, do not forsake me utterly!

119:9 How can a young man cleanse his way?

By taking heed according to Your word.

119:10 With my whole heart I have sought You;

Oh, let me not wander from Your

commandments!

119:11 Your word I have hidden in my heart,

That I might not sin against You!

119:12 Blessed are You, O Yahweh!

Teach me Your statutes!

119:13 With my lips I have declared

All the judgments of Your mouth.

119:14 I have rejoiced in the way of Your

testimonies,

As much as in all riches.

119:15 I will meditate on Your precepts,

And contemplate Your ways.

119:16 I will delight myself in Your statutes;

I will not forget Your word.

119:17 Deal bountifully with Your servant,

That I may live and keep Your word.

119:18 Open my eyes, that I may see

Wondrous things from Your law.

119:19 I am a stranger in the earth;

Do not hide Your commandments from me.

119:20 My spirit breaks with longing

For Your judgments at all times.

119:21 You rebuke the proud-the cursed,

Who stray from Your commandments.

119:22 Remove from me reproach and contempt,

For I have kept Your testimonies.

119:23 Princes also sit and speak against me,

But Your servant meditates on Your statutes.

119:24 Your testimonies also are my delight

And my counselors.

119:25 My body clings to the dust;

Revive me according to Your word.

119:26 I have declared my ways, and You

answered me;

Teach me Your statutes.

119:27 Make me understand the way of Your

precepts;

So shall I meditate on Your wondrous works.

119:28 My body melts from heaviness;

Strengthen me according to Your word.

119:29 Remove from me the way of lying,

And grant me Your law graciously.

119:30 I have chosen the way of truth;

Your judgments I have laid before me.

119:31 I cling to Your testimonies;

O Yahweh, do not put me to shame!

119:32 I will run the course of Your

commandments,

For You shall enlarge my heart.

119:33 Teach me, O Yahweh, the way of Your

statutes,

And I shall keep it to the end.

119:34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep

Your law;

Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

119:35 Make me walk in the path of Your

commandments,

For I delight in it.

119:36 Incline my heart to Your testimonies,

And not to covetousness.

119:37 Turn away my eyes from looking at

worthless things,

And revive me in Your way.

119:38 Establish Your word to Your servant,

Who is devoted to respecting You.

119:39 Turn away my reproach which I dread,

For Your judgments are good.

119:40 Behold, I long for Your precepts;

Revive me in Your righteousness.

119:41 Let Your mercies come also to me, O

Yahweh-

Your salvation according to Your word.

119:42 So shall I have an answer for him who

reproaches me,

For I trust in Your word.

119:43 And take not the word of truth utterly out

of my mouth,

For I have hoped in Your ordinances.

119:44 So shall I keep Your law continually,

Forever and ever.

119:45 And I will walk at liberty,

For I seek Your precepts.

119:46 I will speak of Your testimonies also

before kings,

And will not be ashamed.

119:47 And I will delight myself in Your

commandments,

Which I love.

119:48 My hands also I will lift up to Your

commandments,

Which I love,

And I will meditate on Your statutes.

119:49 Remember the word to Your servant,

Upon which You have caused me to hope.

119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction,

For Your word has given me life.

119:51 The proud have me in great derision,

Yet I do not turn aside from Your law.

119:52 I remembered Your judgments of old, O

Yahweh,

And have comforted myself.

119:53 Indignation has taken hold of me

Because of the wicked, who forsake Your law.

119:54 Your statutes have been my songs

In the house of my pilgrimage.

119:55 I remember Your name in the night, O

Yahweh,

And I keep Your law.

119:56 This has become mine,

Because I kept Your precepts.

119:57 You are my portion, O Yahweh;

I have said that I would keep Your words.

119:58 I entreated Your favor with my whole

heart;

Be merciful to me according to Your word.

119:59 I thought about my ways,

And turned my feet to Your testimonies.

119:60 I made haste, and did not delay

To keep Your commandments.

119:61 The cords of the wicked have bound me,

But I have not forgotten Your law.

119:62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks to

You,

Because of Your righteous judgments.

119:63 I am a companion of all who fear You,

And of those who keep Your precepts.

119:64 The earth, O Yahweh, is full of Your

mercy;

Teach me Your statutes.

119:65 You have dealt well with Your servant,

O Yahweh, according to Your word.

119:66 Teach me good judgment and

knowledge,

For I believe Your commandments.

119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,

But now I keep Your word.

119:68 You are good, and do good;

Teach me Your statutes.

119:69 The proud have forged a lie against me,

But I will keep Your precepts with my whole

heart.

119:70 Their heart is as fat as grease,

But I delight in Your law.

119:71 It is good for me that I have been

afflicted,

That I may learn Your statutes.

119:72 The law of Your mouth is better to me

Than thousands of coins of gold and silver.

119:73 Your hands have made me and fashioned

me;

Give me understanding, that I may learn Your

commandments.

119:74 Those who fear You will be glad when

they see me,

Because I have hoped in Your word.

119:75 I know, O Yahweh, that Your judgments

are right,

And that in faithfulness You have afflicted me.

119:76 Let, I pray, Your merciful kindness be for

my comfort,

According to Your word to Your servant.

119:77 Let Your tender mercies come to me, that

I may live;

For Your law is my delight.

119:78 Let the proud be ashamed,

For they treated me wrongfully with falsehood;

But I will meditate on Your precepts.

119:79 Let those who fear You turn to me,

Those who know Your testimonies.

119:80 Let my heart be blameless regarding

Your statutes,

That I may not be ashamed.

119:81 My spirit faints for Your salvation,

But I hope in Your word.

119:82 My eyes fail from searching Your word,

Saying, "When will You comfort me?"

119:83 For I have become like a wineskin in

smoke,

Yet I do not forget Your statutes.

119:84 How many are the days of Your servant?

When will You execute judgment on those who

persecute me?

119:85 The proud have dug pits for me,

Which is not according to Your law.

119:86 All Your commandments are faithful;

They persecute me wrongfully;

Help me!

119:87 They almost made an end of me on earth,

But I did not forsake Your precepts.

119:88 Revive me according to Your

lovingkindness,

So that I may keep the testimony of Your mouth.

119:89 Forever, O Yahweh,

Your word is settled in heaven.

119:90 Your faithfulness endures to all

generations;

You established the earth, and it abides.

119:91 They continue this day according to Your

ordinances,

For all are Your servants.

119:92 Unless Your law had been my delight,

I would then have perished in my affliction.

119:93 I will never forget Your precepts,

For by them You have given me life.

119:94 I am Yours, save me;

For I have sought Your precepts.

119:95 The wicked wait for me to destroy me,

But I will consider Your testimonies.

119:96 I have seen the consummation of all

perfection,

But Your commandment is exceedingly broad.

119:97 Oh, how I love Your law!

It is my meditation all the day.

119:98 You, through Your commandments,

make me wiser than my enemies;

For they are ever with me.

119:99 I have more understanding than all my

teachers,

For Your testimonies are my meditation.

119:100 I understand more than the ancients,

Because I keep Your precepts.

119:101 I have restrained my feet from every

evil way,

That I may keep Your word.

119:102 I have not departed from Your

judgments,

For You Yourself have taught me.

119:103 How sweet are Your words to my taste,

Sweeter than honey to my mouth!

119:104 Through Your precepts I get

understanding;

Therefore I hate every false way.

119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet

And a light to my path.

119:106 I have sworn and confirmed

That I will keep Your righteous judgments.

119:107 I am afflicted very much;

Revive me, O Yahweh, according to Your word.

119:108 Accept, I pray, the freewill offerings of

my mouth, O Yahweh,

And teach me Your judgments.

119:109 My life is continually in my hand,

Yet I do not forget Your law.

119:110 The wicked have laid a snare for me,

Yet I have not strayed from Your precepts.

119:111 Your testimonies I have taken as a

heritage forever,

For they are the rejoicing of my heart.

119:112 I have inclined my heart to perform

Your statutes

Forever, to the very end.

119:113 I hate the double-minded,

But I love Your law.

119:114 You are my hiding place and my shield;

I hope in Your word.

119:115 Depart from me, you evildoers,

For I will keep the commandments of my God!

119:116 Uphold me according to Your word,

that I may live;

And do not let me be ashamed of my hope.

119:117 Hold me up, and I shall be safe,

And I shall observe Your statutes continually.

119:118 You reject all those who stray from

Your statutes,

For their deceit is falsehood.

119:119 You put away all the wicked of the earth

like dross;

Therefore I love Your testimonies.

119:120 My flesh trembles for fear of You,

And I am afraid of Your judgments.

119:121 I have done justice and righteousness;

Do not leave me to my oppressors.

119:122 Be surety for Your servant for good;

Do not let the proud oppress me.

119:123 My eyes fail from seeking Your

salvation

And Your righteous word.

119:124 Deal with Your servant according to

Your mercy,

And teach me Your statutes.

119:125 I am Your servant;

Give me understanding,

That I may know Your testimonies.

119:126 It is time for You to act, O Yahweh,

For they have regarded Your law as void.

119:127 Therefore I love Your commandments

More than gold, yes, than fine gold!

119:128 Therefore all Your precepts concerning

all things

I consider to be right;

I hate every false way.

119:129 Your testimonies are wonderful;

Therefore my spirit keeps them.

119:130 The entrance of Your words gives light;

It gives understanding to the simple.

119:131 I opened my mouth and panted,

For I longed for Your commandments.

119:132 Look upon me and be merciful to me,

As Your custom is toward those who love Your

name.

119:133 Direct my steps by Your word,

And let no iniquity have dominion over me.

119:134 Redeem me from the oppression of

man,

That I may keep Your precepts.

119:135 Make Your face shine upon Your

servant,

And teach me Your statutes.

119:136 Rivers of water run down from my eyes,

Because men do not keep Your law.

119:137 Righteous are You, O Yahweh,

And upright are Your judgments.

119:138 Your testimonies, which You have

commanded,

Are righteous and very faithful.

119:139 My zeal has consumed me,

Because my enemies have forgotten Your words.

119:140 Your word is very pure;

Therefore Your servant loves it.

119:141 I am small and despised,

Yet I do not forget Your precepts.

119:142 Your righteousness is an everlasting

righteousness,

And Your law is truth.

119:143 Trouble and anguish have overtaken me,

Yet Your commandments are my delights.

119:144 The righteousness of Your testimonies

is everlasting;

Give me understanding, and I shall live.

119:145 I cry out with my whole heart;

Hear me, O Yahweh!

I will keep Your statutes.

119:146 I cry out to You;

Save me, and I will keep Your testimonies.

119:147 I rise before the dawning of the

morning,

And cry for help;

I hope in Your word.

119:148 My eyes are awake through the night

watches,

That I may meditate on Your word.

119:149 Hear my voice according to Your

lovingkindness;

O Yahweh, revive me according to Your justice.

119:150 They draw near who follow after

wickedness;

They are far from Your law.

119:151 You are near, O Yahweh,

And all Your commandments are truth.

119:152 Concerning Your testimonies,

I have known of old that You have founded them

forever.

119:153 Consider my affliction and deliver me,

For I do not forget Your law.

119:154 Plead my cause and redeem me;

Revive me according to Your word.

119:155 Salvation is far from the wicked,

For they do not seek Your statutes.

119:156 Great are Your tender mercies, O

Yahweh;

Revive me according to Your judgments.

119:157 Many are my persecutors and my

enemies,

Yet I do not turn from Your testimonies.

119:158 I see the treacherous, and am disgusted,

Because they do not keep Your word.

119:159 Consider how I love Your precepts;

Revive me, O Yahweh, according to Your

lovingkindness.

119:160 The entirety of Your word is truth,

And every one of Your righteous judgments

endures forever.

119:161 Princes persecute me without a cause,

But my heart stands in awe of Your word.

119:162 I rejoice at Your word

As one who finds great treasure.

119:163 I hate and abhor lying,

But I love Your law.

119:164 Seven times a day I praise You,

Because of Your righteous judgments.

119:165 Great peace have those who love Your

law,

And nothing causes them to stumble.

119:166 Yahweh, I hope for Your salvation,

And I do Your commandments.

119:167 My spirit keeps Your testimonies,

And I love them exceedingly.

119:168 I keep Your precepts and Your

testimonies,

For all my ways are before You.

119:169 Let my cry come before You, O

Yahweh;

Give me understanding according to Your word.

119:170 Let my supplication come before You;

Deliver me according to Your word.

119:171 My lips shall utter praise,

For You teach me Your statutes.

119:172 My tongue shall speak of Your word,

For all Your commandments are righteousness.

119:173 Let Your hand become my help,

For I have chosen Your precepts.

119:174 I long for Your salvation, O Yahweh,

And Your law is my delight.

119:175 Let my spirit live, and it shall praise

You; And let Your judgments help me.

119:176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep;

Seek Your servant,

For I do not forget Your commandments.

 

Psalms 120:

120:1 In my distress I cried to Yahweh,

And He heard me.

120:2 Deliver my spirit, O Yahweh, from lying

lips

And from a deceitful tongue.

120:3 What shall be given to you,

Or what shall be done to you,

You false tongue?

120:4 Sharp arrows of the warrior,

With coals of the broom tree!

120:5 Woe is me, that I dwell in Meshech,

That I dwell among the tents of Kedar!

120:6 My spirit has dwelt too long

With one who hates peace.

120:7 I am for peace;

But when I speak, they are for war.

 

Psalms 121:

121:1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills-

From whence comes my help?

121:2 My help comes from Yahweh,

Who made heaven and earth.

121:3 He will not allow your foot to be moved;

He who keeps you will not slumber.

121:4 Behold, He who keeps Israel

Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

121:5 Yahweh is your keeper;

Yahweh is your shade at your right hand.

121:6 The sun shall not strike you by day,

Nor the moon by night.

121:7 Yahweh shall preserve you from all evil;

He shall preserve your spirit.

121:8 Yahweh shall preserve your going out and

your coming in

From this time forth, and even forevermore.

 

Psalms 122:

122:1 I was glad when they said to me,

"Let us go into the house of Yahweh."

122:2 Our feet have been standing

Within your gates, O Jerusalem!

122:3 Jerusalem is built

As a city that is compact together,

122:4 Where the tribes go up,

The tribes of Yahweh,

To the Testimony of Israel,

To give thanks to the name of Yahweh.

122:5 For thrones are set there for judgment,

The thrones of the house of David.

122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:

"May they prosper who love you.

122:7 Peace be within your walls,

Prosperity within your palaces."

122:8 For the sake of my brethren and

companions,

I will now say, "Peace be within you."

122:9 Because of the house of Yahweh our God

I will seek your good.

 

Psalms 123:

123:1 Unto You I lift up my eyes,

O You who dwell in the heavens.

123:2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the

hand of their masters,

As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress,

So our eyes look to Yahweh our God,

Until He has mercy on us.

123:3 Have mercy on us, O Yahweh, have mercy

on us!

For we are exceedingly filled with contempt.

123:4 Our spirit is exceedingly filled

With the scorn of those who are at ease,

With the contempt of the proud.

 

Psalms 124:

124:1 "If it had not been Yahweh who was on

our side,"

Let Israel now say-

124:2 "If it had not been Yahweh who was on

our side,

When men rose up against us,

124:3 Then they would have swallowed us alive,

When their wrath was kindled against us;

124:4 Then the waters would have overwhelmed

us,

The stream would have gone over our body;

124:5 Then the swollen waters

Would have gone over our body."

124:6 Blessed be Yahweh,

Who has not given us as prey to their teeth.

124:7 Our spirit has escaped as a bird from the

snare of the fowlers;

The snare is broken, and we have escaped.

124:8 Our help is in the name of Yahweh,

Who made heaven and earth.

Psalms 125:

125:1 Those who trust in Yahweh

Are like Mount Zion,

Which cannot be moved, but abides forever.

125:2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,

So Yahweh surrounds His people

From this time forth and forever.

125:3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest

On the land allotted to the righteous,

Lest the righteous reach out their hands to

iniquity.

125:4 Do good, O Yahweh, to those who are

good,

And to those who are upright in their hearts.

125:5 As for such as turn aside to their crooked

ways,

Yahweh shall lead them away

With the workers of iniquity.

Peace be upon Israel!

 

Psalms 126:

126:1 When Yahweh brought back the captivity

of Zion,

We were like those who dream.

126:2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter,

And our tongue with singing.

Then they said among the nations,

"Yahweh has done great things for them."

126:3 Yahweh has done great things for us,

And we are glad.

126:4 Bring back our captivity, O Yahweh,

As the streams in the South.

126:5 Those who sow in tears

Shall reap in joy.

126:6 He who continually goes forth weeping,

Bearing seed for sowing,

Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,

Bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalms 127:

127:1 Unless Yahweh builds the house,

They labor in vain who build it;

Unless Yahweh guards the city,

The watchman stays awake in vain.

127:2 It is vain for you to rise up early,

To sit up late,

To eat the bread of sorrows;

For so He gives His beloved sleep.

127:3 Behold, children are a heritage from

Yahweh,

The fruit of the womb is a reward.

127:4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,

So are the children of one's youth.

127:5 Happy is the man who has his quiver full

of them;

They shall not be ashamed,

But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.

 

Psalms 128:

128:1 Blessed is every one who fears Yahweh,

Who walks in His ways.

128:2 When you eat the labor of your hands,

You shall be happy, and it shall be well with

you.

128:3 Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine

In the very heart of your house,

Your children like olive plants

All around your table.

128:4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed

Who fears Yahweh.

128:5 Yahweh bless you out of Zion,

And may you see the good of Jerusalem

All the days of your life.

128:6 Yes, may you see your children's children.

Peace be upon Israel!

 

Psalms 129:

129:1 "Many a time they have afflicted me from

my youth,"

Let Israel now say-

129:2 "Many a time they have afflicted me from

my youth;

Yet they have not prevailed against me.

129:3 The plowers plowed on my back;

They made their furrows long."

129:4 Yahweh is righteous;

He has cut in pieces the cords of the wicked.

129:5 Let all those who hate Zion

Be put to shame and turned back.

129:6 Let them be as the grass on the housetops,

Which withers before it grows up,

129:7 With which the reaper does not fill his

hand,

Nor he who binds sheaves, his arms.

129:8 Neither let those who pass by them say,

"The blessing of Yahweh be upon you;

We bless you in the name of Yahweh!"

 

Psalms 130:

130:1 Out of the depths I have cried to You, O

Yahweh;

130:2 Lord, hear my voice!

Let Your ears be attentive

To the voice of my supplications.

130:3 If You, Yahweh, should mark iniquities,

O Lord, who could stand?

130:4 But there is forgiveness with You,

That You may be feared.

130:5 I wait for Yahweh, my spirit waits,

And in His word I do hope.

130:6 My spirit waits for Yahweh

More than those who watch for the morning-

Yes, more than those who watch for the

morning.

130:7 O Israel, hope in Yahweh;

For with Yahweh there is mercy,

And with Him is abundant redemption.

130:8 And He shall redeem Israel

From all his iniquities.

 

Psalms 131:

131:1 Yahweh, my heart is not haughty,

Nor my eyes lofty.

Neither do I concern myself with great matters,

Nor with things too profound for me.

131:2 Surely I have calmed and quieted my

spirit,

Like a weaned child with his mother;

Like a weaned child is my spirit within me.

131:3 O Israel, hope in Yahweh

From this time forth and forever.

Psalms 132:

132:1 Yahweh, remember David

And all his afflictions;

132:2 How he swore to Yahweh,

And vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:

132:3 "Surely I will not go into the chamber of

my house,

Or go up to the comfort of my bed;

132:4 I will not give sleep to my eyes

Or slumber to my eyelids,

132:5 Until I find a place for Yahweh,

A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob."

132:6 Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah;

We found it in the fields of the woods.

132:7 Let us go into His tabernacle;

Let us worship at His footstool.

132:8 Arise, O Yahweh, to Your resting place,

You and the ark of Your strength.

132:9 Let Your priests be clothed with

righteousness,

And let Your saints shout for joy.

132:10 For Your servant David's sake,

Do not turn away the face of Your Anointed.

132:11 Yahweh has sworn in truth to David;

He will not turn from it: "I will set upon your

throne the fruit of your body.

132:12 If your sons will keep My covenant

And My testimony which I shall teach them,

Their sons also shall sit upon your throne

forevermore."

132:13 For Yahweh has chosen Zion;

He has desired it for His dwelling place:

132:14 "This is My resting place forever;

Here I will dwell, for I have desired it.

132:15 I will abundantly bless her provision;

I will satisfy her poor with bread.

132:16 I will also clothe her priests with

salvation,

And her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

132:17 There I will make the horn of David

grow;

I will prepare a lamp for My Anointed.

132:18 His enemies I will clothe with shame,

But upon Himself His crown shall flourish."

Psalms 133:

133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is

For brethren to dwell together in unity!

133:2 It is like the precious oil upon the head,

Running down on the beard,

The beard of Aaron,

Running down on the edge of his garments.

133:3 It is like the dew of Hermon,

Descending upon the mountains of Zion;

For there Yahweh commanded the blessing-

Life forevermore.

 

Psalms 134:

134:1 Behold, bless Yahweh,

All you servants of Yahweh,

Who by night stand in the house of Yahweh!

134:2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary,

And bless Yahweh.

134:3 Yahweh who made heaven and earth

Bless you from Zion!

 

Psalms 135:

135:1 Praise Yahweh!

Praise the name of Yahweh;

Praise Him, O you servants of Yahweh!

135:2 You who stand in the house of Yahweh,

In the courts of the house of our God,

135:3 Praise Yahweh, for Yahweh is good;

Sing praises to His name, for it is pleasant.

135:4 For Yahweh has chosen Jacob for Himself,

Israel for His special treasure.

135:5 For I know that Yahweh is great,

And our Lord is above all gods.

135:6 Whatever Yahweh pleases He does,

In heaven and in earth,

In the seas and in all deep places.

135:7 He causes the vapors to ascend from the

ends of the earth;

He makes lightning for the rain;

He brings the wind out of His treasuries.

135:8 He destroyed the firstborn of Egypt,

Both of man and beast.

135:9 He sent signs and wonders into the midst

of you, O Egypt,

Upon Pharaoh and all his servants.

135:10 He defeated many nations

And slew mighty kings-

135:11 Sihon king of the Amorites,

Og king of Bashan,

And all the kingdoms of Canaan-

135:12 And gave their land as a heritage,

A heritage to Israel His people.

135:13 Your name, O Yahweh, endures forever,

Your fame, O Yahweh, throughout all

generations.

135:14 For Yahweh will judge His people,

And He will have compassion on His servants.

135:15 The idols of the nations are silver and

gold,

The work of men's hands.

135:16 They have mouths, but they do not speak;

Eyes they have, but they do not see;

135:17 They have ears, but they do not hear;

Nor is there any breath in their mouths.

135:18 Those who make them are like them;

So is everyone who trusts in them.

135:19 Bless Yahweh, O house of Israel!

Bless Yahweh, O house of Aaron!

135:20 Bless Yahweh, O house of Levi!

You who fear Yahweh, bless Yahweh!

135:21 Blessed be Yahweh out of Zion,

Who dwells in Jerusalem!

Praise Yahweh!

waters,

136:10 To Him who struck Egypt in their

firstborn,

For His mercy endures forever;

136:11 And brought out Israel from among them,

For His mercy endures forever;

136:12 With a strong hand, and with an

outstretched arm,

For His mercy endures forever;

136:13 To Him who divided the Red Sea in two,

For His mercy endures forever;

136:14 And made Israel pass through the midst

of it,

For His mercy endures forever;

136:15 But overthrew Pharaoh and his army in

the Red Sea,

For His mercy endures forever;

136:16 To Him who led His people through the

wilderness,

For His mercy endures forever;

136:17 To Him who struck down great kings,

For His mercy endures forever;

136:18 And slew famous kings,

For His mercy endures forever-

136:19 Sihon king of the Amorites,

For His mercy endures forever;

136:20 And Og king of Bashan,

For His mercy endures forever-

136:21 And gave their land as a heritage,

For His mercy endures forever;

136:22 A heritage to Israel His servant,

For His mercy endures forever.

136:23 Who remembered us in our lowly state,

For His mercy endures forever;

136:24 And rescued us from our enemies,

For His mercy endures forever;

136:25 Who gives food to all flesh,

For His mercy endures forever.

136:26 Oh, give thanks to the God of heaven!

For His mercy endures forever.

 

Psalms 137:

137:1 By the rivers of Babylon,

There we sat down, yea, we wept

When we remembered Zion.

137:2 We hung our harps

Upon the willows in the midst of it.

137:3 For there those who carried us away

captive asked of us a song,

And those who plundered us requested mirth,

Saying, "Sing us one of the songs of Zion!"

137:4 How shall we sing Yahweh’s song

 

Psalms 138:

In a foreign land?

137:5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem,

Let my right hand forget its skill!

137:6 If I do not remember you,

Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth-

If I do not exalt Jerusalem

Above my chief joy.

137:7 Remember, O Yahweh, against the sons of

Edom

The day of Jerusalem,

Who said, "Raze it, raze it,

To its very foundation!"

137:8 O daughter of Babylon, who are to be

destroyed,

Happy the one who repays you as you have

served us!

137:9 Happy the one who takes and dashes

Your little ones against the rock!

 

Psalms 138:

138:1 I will praise You with my whole heart;

Before the gods I will sing praises to You.

138:2 I will worship toward Your holy temple,

And praise Your name

For Your lovingkindness and Your truth;

For You have magnified Your word above all

Your name.

138:3 In the day when I cried out, You answered

me,

And made me bold with strength in my spirit.

138:4 All the kings of the earth shall praise You,

O Yahweh,

When they hear the words of Your mouth.

138:5 Yes, they shall sing of the ways of

Yahweh,

For great is the glory of Yahweh.

138:6 Though Yahweh is on high,

Yet He regards the lowly;

But the proud He knows from afar.

138:7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You

will revive me;

You will stretch out Your hand

Against the wrath of my enemies,

And Your right hand will save me.

138:8 Yahweh will perfect that which concerns

me;

Your mercy, O Yahweh, endures forever;

Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

139:1 O Yahweh, You have searched me and

known me.

139:2 You know my sitting down and my rising

up; You understand my thought afar off.

139:3 You comprehend my path and my lying

down,

And are acquainted with all my ways.

139:4 For there is not a word on my tongue,

But behold, O Yahweh, You know it altogether.

139:5 You have hedged me behind and before,

And laid Your hand upon me.

139:6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;

It is high, I cannot attain it.

139:7 Where can I go from Your Spirit?

Or where can I flee from Your presence?

139:8 If I ascend into heaven, You are there;

If I make my bed in the grave, behold, You are

there.

139:9 If I take the wings of the morning,

And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,

139:10 Even there Your hand shall lead me,

And Your right hand shall hold me.

139:11 If I say, "Surely the darkness shall fall on

me,"

Even the night shall be light about me;

139:12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from

You,

But the night shines as the day;

The darkness and the light are both alike to You.

139:13 For You formed my inward parts;

You covered me in my mother's womb.

139:14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and

wonderfully made;

Marvelous are Your works,

And that my spirit knows very well.

139:15 My frame was not hidden from You,

When I was made in secret,

And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the

earth.

139:16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet

unformed.

And in Your book they all were written,

The days fashioned for me,

When as yet there were none of them.

139:17 How precious also are Your thoughts to

me, O Yahweh!

How great is the sum of them!

139:18 If I should count them, they would be

more in number than the sand;

When I awake, I am still with You.

 

Psalms 140:

139:19 Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O

Yahweh!

Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men.

139:20 For they speak against You wickedly;

Your enemies take Your name in vain.

139:21 Do I not hate them, O Yahweh, who hate

You?

And do I not loathe those who rise up against

You?

139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred;

I count them my enemies.

139:23 Search me, O Yahweh, and know my

heart;

Try me, and know my anxieties;

139:24 And see if there is any wicked way in

me,

And lead me in the way everlasting.

 

Psalms 140:

140:1 Deliver me, O Yahweh, from evil men;

Preserve me from violent men,

140:2 Who plan evil things in their hearts;

They continually gather together for war.

140:3 They sharpen their tongues like a serpent;

The poison of asps is under their lips. Selah

140:4 Keep me, O Yahweh, from the hands of

the wicked;

Preserve me from violent men,

Who have purposed to make my steps stumble.

140:5 The proud have hidden a snare for me, and

cords;

They have spread a net by the wayside;

They have set traps for me. Selah

140:6 I said to Yahweh: "You are my God;

Hear the voice of my supplications, O Yahweh.

140:7 O Yahweh, the strength of my salvation,

You have covered my head in the day of battle.

140:8 Do not grant, O Yahweh, the desires of the

wicked;

Do not further his wicked scheme,

Lest they be exalted. Selah

140:9 "As for the head of those who surround

me,

Let the evil of their lips cover them;

140:10 Let burning coals fall upon them;

Let them be cast into the fire,

Into deep pits, that they rise not up again.

140:11 Let not a slanderer be established in the

earth;

Let evil hunt the violent man to overthrow him."

140:12 I know that Yahweh will maintain

The cause of the afflicted,

And justice for the poor.

140:13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to

Your name;

The upright shall dwell in Your presence.

 

Psalms 141:

141:1 Yahweh, I cry out to You;

Make haste to me!

Give ear to my voice when I cry out to You.

141:2 Let my prayer be set before You as

incense,

The lifting up of my hands as the evening

sacrifice.

141:3 Set a guard, O Yahweh, over my mouth;

Keep watch over the door of my lips.

141:4 Do not incline my heart to any evil thing,

To practice wicked works

With men who work iniquity;

And do not let me eat of their delicacies.

141:5 Let the righteous strike me;

It shall be a kindness.

And let him rebuke me;

It shall be as excellent oil;

Let my head not refuse it.

For still my prayer is against the deeds of the

wicked.

141:6 Their judges are overthrown by the sides

of the cliff,

And they hear my words, for they are sweet.

141:7 Our bones are scattered at the mouth of the

grave,

As when one plows and breaks up the earth.

141:8 But my eyes are upon You, O Yahweh;

In You I take refuge;

Do not leave my body destitute.

141:9 Keep me from the snares they have laid for

me,

And from the traps of the workers of iniquity.

141:10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets,

While I escape safely.

 

Psalms 142:

142:1 I cry out to Yahweh with my voice;

With my voice to Yahweh I make my

supplication.

142:2 I pour out my complaint before Him;

I declare before Him my trouble.

142:3 When my spirit was overwhelmed within

me,

Then You knew my path.

In the way in which I walk

They have secretly set a snare for me.

142:4 Look on my right hand and see,

For there is no one who acknowledges me;

Refuge has failed me;

No one cares for my spirit.

142:5 I cried out to You, O Yahweh:

I said, "You are my refuge,

My portion in the land of the living.

142:6 Attend to my cry,

For I am brought very low;

Deliver me from my persecutors,

For they are stronger than I.

142:7 Bring my body out of prison,

That I may praise Your name;

The righteous shall surround me,

For You shall deal bountifully with me."

 

Psalms 143:

143:1 Hear my prayer, O Yahweh,

Give ear to my supplications!

In Your faithfulness answer me,

And in Your righteousness.

143:2 Do not enter into judgment with Your

servant,

For in Your sight no one living is righteous.

143:3 For the enemy has persecuted my body;

He has crushed my life to the ground;

He has made me dwell in darkness,

Like those who have long been dead.

143:4 Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within

me;

My heart within me is distressed.

143:5 I remember the days of old;

I meditate on all Your works;

I muse on the work of Your hands.

143:6 I spread out my hands to You;

My spirit longs for You like a thirsty land. Selah

143:7 Answer me speedily, O Yahweh;

My spirit fails!

Do not hide Your face from me,

Lest I be like those who go down into the pit.

143:8 Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in

the morning,

For in You do I trust;

Cause me to know the way in which I should

walk,

For I lift up my spirit to You.

143:9 Deliver me, O Yahweh, from my enemies;

In You I take shelter.

143:10 Teach me to do Your will,

For You are my God;

Your Spirit is good.

Lead me in the land of uprightness.

143:11 Revive me, O Yahweh, for Your name's

sake!

For Your righteousness' sake bring my spirit out

of trouble.

143:12 In Your mercy cut off my enemies,

And destroy all those who afflict my body;

For I am Your servant.

Psalms 144:

144:1 Blessed be Yahweh my Rock,

Who trains my hands for war,

And my fingers for battle-

144:2 My lovingkindness and my fortress,

My high tower and my deliverer,

My shield and the One in whom I take refuge,

Who subdues my people under me.

144:3 Yahweh, what is man, that You take

knowledge of him?

Or the son of man, that You are mindful of him?

144:4 Man is like a breath;

His days are like a passing shadow.

144:5 Bow down Your skies, O Yahweh, and

come down;

Touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.

144:6 Flash forth lightning and scatter them;

Shoot out Your arrows and destroy them.

144:7 Stretch out Your hand from above;

Rescue me and deliver me out of great waters,

From the hand of foreigners,

144:8 Whose mouth speaks vain words,

And whose right hand is a right hand of

falsehood.

144:9 I will sing a new song to You, O Yahweh;

On a harp of ten strings I will sing praises to

You,

144:10 The One who gives salvation to kings,

Who delivers David His servant

From the deadly sword.

144:11 Rescue me and deliver me from the hand

of foreigners,

Whose mouth speaks lying words,

And whose right hand is a right hand of

falsehood-

144:12 That our sons may be as plants grown up

in their youth;

That our daughters may be as pillars,

Sculptured in palace style;

144:13 That our barns may be full,

Supplying all kinds of produce;

That our sheep may bring forth thousands

And ten thousands in our fields;

144:14 That our oxen may be well-laden;

That there be no breaking in or going out;

That there be no outcry in our streets.

144:15 Happy are the people who are in such a

state;

Happy are the people whose God is Yahweh!

Psalms 145:

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 Yahweh, and greatly to be

praised;

And His greatness is unsearchable.

145:4 One generation shall praise Your works to

another,

And shall declare Your mighty acts.

145:5 I will meditate on the glorious splendor of

Your majesty,

And on Your wondrous works.

145:6 Men shall speak of the might of Your

awesome acts,

And I will declare Your greatness.

145:7 They shall utter the memory of Your great

goodness,

And shall sing of Your righteousness.

145:8 Yahweh is gracious and full of

compassion,

Slow to anger and great in mercy.

145:9 Yahweh is good to all,

And His tender mercies are over all His works.

145:10 All Your works shall praise You, O

Yahweh,

And Your saints shall bless You.

145:11 They shall speak of the glory of Your

kingdom,

And talk of Your power,

145:12 To make known to the sons of men His

mighty acts,

And the glorious majesty of His kingdom.

145:13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,

And Your dominion endures throughout all

generations.

145:14 Yahweh upholds all who fall,

And raises up all who are bowed down.

145:15 The eyes of all look expectantly to You,

And You give them their food in due season.

145:16 You open Your hand

And satisfy the desire of every living thing.

145:17 Yahweh is righteous in all His ways,

Gracious in all His works.

145:18 Yahweh is near to all who call upon Him,

To all who call upon Him in truth.

145:19 He will fulfill the desire of those who

fear Him;

He also will hear their cry and save them.

145:20 Yahweh preserves all who love Him,

But all the wicked He will destroy.

145:21 My mouth shall speak the praise of

Yahweh,

And all flesh shall bless His holy name

Forever and ever.

 

Psalms 146:

146:1 Praise Yahweh!

Praise Yahweh, O my spirit!

146:2 While I live I will praise Yahweh;

I will sing praises to my God while I have my

being.

146:3 Do not put your trust in princes,

Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.

146:4 His spirit departs, he returns to his earth;

In that very day his plans perish.

146:5 Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for

his help,

Whose hope is in Yahweh his God,

146:6 Who made heaven and earth,

The sea, and all that is in them;

Who keeps truth forever,

146:7 Who executes justice for the oppressed,

Who gives food to the hungry.

Yahweh gives freedom to the prisoners.

146:8 Yahweh opens the eyes of the blind;

Yahweh raises those who are bowed down;

Yahweh loves the righteous.

146:9 Yahweh watches over the strangers;

He relieves the fatherless and widow;

But the way of the wicked He turns upside down.

146:10 Yahweh shall reign forever-

Your God, O Zion, to all generations.

Praise Yahweh!

 

Psalms 147:

147:1 Praise Yahweh!

For it is good to sing praises to our God;

For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful.

147:2 Yahweh builds up Jerusalem;

He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.

147:3 He heals the brokenhearted

And binds up their wounds.

147:4 He counts the number of the stars;

He calls them all by name.

147:5 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;

His understanding is infinite.

147:6 Yahweh lifts up the humble;

He casts the wicked down to the ground.

147:7 Sing to Yahweh with thanksgiving;

Sing praises on the harp to our God,

147:8 Who covers the skies with clouds,

Who prepares rain for the earth,

Who makes grass to grow on the mountains.

147:9 He gives to the beast its food,

And to the young ravens that cry.

147:10 He does not delight in the strength of the

horse;

He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man.

147:11 Yahweh takes pleasure in those who fear

Him,

In those who hope in His mercy.

147:12 Praise Yahweh, O Jerusalem!

Praise your God, O Zion!

147:13 For He has strengthened the bars of your

gates;

He has blessed your children within you.

147:14 He makes peace in your borders,

And fills you with the finest wheat.

147:15 He sends out His command to the earth;

His word runs very swiftly.

147:16 He gives snow like wool;

He scatters the frost like ashes;

147:17 He casts out His hail like morsels;

Who can stand before His cold?

147:18 He sends out His word and melts them;

He causes His wind to blow, and the waters

flow.

147:19 He declares His word to Jacob,

His statutes and His judgments to Israel.

147:20 He has not dealt thus with any nation;

And as for His judgments, they have not known

them.

Praise Yahweh!

 

Psalms 148:

148:1 Praise Yahweh!

Praise Yahweh from the heavens;

Praise Him in the heights!

Praise Him, all His hosts!

Praise Him, all you stars of light!

148:4 Praise Him, you skies of heavens,

And you waters above the skies!

148:5 Let them praise the name of Yahweh,

For He commanded and they were created.

148:6 He also established them forever and ever;

He made a decree which shall not pass away.

148:7 Praise Yahweh from the earth,

You great sea creatures and all the depths;

148:8 Fire and hail, snow and clouds;

Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;

148:9 Mountains and all hills;

Fruitful trees and all cedars;

148:10 Beasts and all cattle;

Creeping things and flying fowl;

148:11 Kings of the earth and all peoples;

Princes and all judges of the earth;

148:12 Both young men and maidens;

Old men and children.

148:13 Let them praise the name of Yahweh,

For His name alone is exalted;

His glory is above the earth and the sky.

148:14 And He has exalted the horn of His

people,

The praise of all His saints-

Of the children of Israel,

A people near to Him.

Praise Yahweh!

He will beautify the humble with salvation.

149:5 Let the saints be joyful in glory;

Let them sing aloud on their beds.

149:6 Let the high praises of Yahweh be in their

mouth,

And a two-edged sword in their hand,

149:7 To execute vengeance on the nations,

And punishments on the peoples;

149:8 To bind their kings with chains,

And their nobles with fetters of iron;

149:9 To execute on them the written judgment-

This honor have all His saints.

Praise Yahweh!

Yahweh.
