Bible verses about "bullying" | MLV

Psalms 1:1-150:6

1 The man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers is fortunate, 2 because his delight is in the law of Jehovah and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 And he will be like a tree planted by the streams of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also does not wither. And whatever he does will prosper.
4 The wicked are not so, because they are like the chaff which the wind drives away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 Because Jehovah knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

Psalms 2:1-150:6

1 Why do the nations rage and the peoples meditate vain things? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves and the rulers take counsel together, against Jehovah and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.
4 He who sits in the heavens will laugh. The Lord will mock them. 5 Then he will speak to them in his wrath and distress them in his great displeasure.
6 Yet I have set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. 7 I will tell of the decree. Jehovah said to me, You are my Son, this day I have fathered you. 8 Ask of me and I will give you the nations as your inheritance and the outermost parts of the earth as your possession. 9 You will smash them with a rod of iron, you will dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10 Now therefore be wise, O you* kings. Be instructed, you* judges of the earth. 11 Serve Jehovah with fear and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he is angry and you* perish in the way, because his wrath will soon be kindled. All those who take refuge in him are fortunate.

Psalms 3:1-150:6

1 Jehovah, how my adversaries are increased! Many are those who rise up against me. 2 Many there are who say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
3 But you, O Jehovah, are a shield on my behalf, my glory and he who lifts up of my head. 4 I cry to Jehovah with my voice and he answers me out of his holy hill. Selah. 5 I laid down and slept. I awoke, because Jehovah sustains me. 6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of the people who have set themselves against me all around.
7 Arise, O Jehovah. Save me, O my God. Because you have struck all my enemies upon the cheek bone. You have broken the teeth of the wicked.
8 Salvation belongs to Jehovah. Your blessing be upon your people. Selah.

Psalms 4:1-150:6

1 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness. You have enlarged me in distress. Have mercy upon me and hear my prayer. 2 O you* sons of men, how long will my glory be turned into dishonor? Will you* love vanity and seek after falsehood? Selah. 3 But know that Jehovah has set apart for himself he who is holy. Jehovah will hear when I call to him.
4 Stand in awe and do not sin. Speak with your* own heart upon your* bed and be still. Selah. 5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness and put your* trust in Jehovah.
6 There are many who say, Who will show us good? Jehovah, lift you up the light of your countenance upon us. 7 You have put gladness in my heart more than when their grain and their new wine are increased. 8 I will both lie down and sleep in peace, because you, Jehovah, alone make me dwell in safety.

Psalms 5:1-150:6

1 Listen to my words, O Jehovah, Consider my meditation. 2 Listen to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, because I pray to you. 3 O Jehovah, in the morning you will hear my voice. I will direct to you and will keep watch in the morning.
4 Because you are not a God who has pleasure in wickedness. Evil will not journey with you. 5 The arrogant will not stand in your sight. You hate all workers of wickedness. 6 You will destroy those who speak lies. Jehovah abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
7 But as for me, in the abundance of your loving kindness I will come into your house. I will worship toward your holy temple in your fear.
8 Lead me, O Jehovah, in your righteousness because of my enemies. Make your way straight before my face. 9 Because there is no faithfulness in their mouth. Their inward part is destruction. Their throat is an open sepulcher. They deceive with their tongue.
10 Hold them guilty, O God. Let them fall by their own counsels. Thrust them out in the multitude of their transgressions. Because they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all those who take refuge in you rejoice. Let them shout for joy everlasting, because you defend them. Let those also who love your name be joyful in you. 12 Because you will bless the righteous man, O Jehovah. You will encompass him with favor as with a shield. Selah.

Psalms 6:1-150:6

1 O Jehovah, do not rebuke me in your anger, nor discipline me in your hot displeasure. 2 Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah, because I am withered away. O Jehovah, heal me, because my bones are troubled.
3 My soul also is greatly troubled. And you, O Jehovah, how long? 4 Return, O Jehovah, deliver my soul. Save me for your loving kindness' sake. 5 Because in death there is no remembrance of you. Who will give you thanks in Sheol?
6 I am weary with my groaning. Every night I make my bed to swim. I water my couch with my tears. 7 My eye wastes away because of grief. It grows old because of all my adversaries.
8 Depart from me, all you* workers of wickedness, because Jehovah has heard the voice of my weeping. 9 Jehovah has heard my supplication. Jehovah will receive my prayer. 10 All my enemies will be put to shame and greatly troubled. They will turn back. They will be put to shame suddenly.

Psalms 7:1-150:6

1 O Jehovah my God, I take refuge in you. Save me from all those who pursue me and deliver me, 2 lest they tear my soul like a lion, tearing it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
3 O Jehovah my God, if I have done this, if there is unrighteousness in my hands, 4 if I have rewarded evil to him who was at peace with me, (yes, I have delivered him without cause who was my adversary), 5 let the enemy pursue my soul and overtake it. Yes, let him tread my life down to the earth and lay my glory in the dust. Selah.
6 Arise, O Jehovah, in your anger. Lift up yourself against the rage of my adversaries and awake for me the justice you have commanded. 7 And let the congregation of the peoples encompass you about and return on high over them.
8 Jehovah will judge the peoples. Judge me, O Jehovah, according to my righteousness and to my integrity that is in me.
9 O let the evil of the wicked man come to an end, but establish the righteous man. For the righteous God tries the minds and hearts.
10 My shield is with God, who saves the upright in heart. 11 God is a righteous judge. Yes, a God who has indignation every day.
12 If a man does not repent, he will flash his sword. He has bent his bow and made it ready. 13 He has also prepared for him the instruments of death. He makes his arrows fiery.
14 Behold the wicked man, he travails with wickedness. Yes, he has conceived mischief and brought out falsehood. 15 He has made a pit and dug it and has fallen into the ditch which he made. 16 His mischief will return upon his own head and his violence will come down upon his own scalp.
17 I will give thanks to Jehovah according to his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of Jehovah Most High.

Psalms 8:1-150:6

1 O Jehovah, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth, who has set your glory upon the heavens!
2 Out of the mouth of babes and nursing-babes you have perfected praise, because of your adversaries, that you might make the enemy and the avenger cease.
3 Because I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have established, 4 what is man that you remember him? And the son of man that you care for him? 5 Yet you have made him but a little lower than messengers and crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You make him to have dominion over the works of your hands. You have put all things under his feet. 7 All sheep and oxen, yes and the beasts of the field, 8 the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
9 O Jehovah, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!

Psalms 9:1-150:6

1 I will give thanks to Jehovah with my whole heart. I will show forth all your marvelous works. 2 I will be glad and rejoice in you. I will sing praise to your name, O you Most High. 3 When my enemies turn back, they stumble and perish at your presence. 4 Because you have maintained my right and my cause. You sit in the throne judging righteously.
5 You have rebuked the nations. You have destroyed the wicked. You have blotted out their name everlasting and forever. 6 The enemy have come to an end. They are desolate forever and the cities which you have overthrown. The very memory of them has perished, 7 but Jehovah will endure everlasting.
He has prepared his throne for judgment, 8 and he will judge the world in righteousness. He will minister justice to the peoples in uprightness.
9 Jehovah will also be a high tower for the oppressed, a high tower in times of trouble. 10 And those who know your name will put their trust in you, because you, Jehovah, have not forsaken those who seek you.
11 Sing praises to Jehovah, who dwells in Zion. Declare among the people his practices. 12 Because he who makes inquiry for blood remembers them. He does not forget the cry of the poor.
13 Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah. Behold my affliction from those who hate me, you who lifts me up from the gates of death 14 that I may show forth all your praise. I will rejoice in your salvation in the gates of the daughter of Zion.
15 The nations are sunk down in the pit that they made. In the net which they hid, their own foot is taken. 16 Jehovah has made himself known. He has executed justice. The wicked man is snared in the work of his own hands. A meditation. Selah. 17 Wicked men will be turned back to Sheol, even all the nations that forget God.
18 Because a needy man will not always be forgotten, nor the expectation of the poor perish forever.
19 Arise, O Jehovah, do not let man prevail. Let the nations be judged in your sight. 20 Put them in fear, O Jehovah. Let the nations know themselves to be but men. Selah.

Psalms 10:1-150:6

1 Why do you stand afar off, O Jehovah? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?
2 The poor man is hotly-pursued in the pride of the wicked man. Let them be taken in the devices that they have conceived. 3 Because the wicked man boasts of his heart's desire. And the greedy man renounces, yes, despises Jehovah.
4 The wicked man, in the pride of his countenance, says, He will not require it. All his thoughts are, There is no God.
5 His ways are profane at all times. Your judgments are far above out of his sight. As for all his adversaries, he snorts at them. 6 He says in his heart, I will not be shaken. I will not be in adversity to all generations.
7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and oppression. Under his tongue is mischief and wickedness.
8 He sits in the lurking-places of the villages. He murders the innocent man in the covert places. His eyes are secretly set against the poor man. 9 He lurks in secret as a lion in his covering. He lies in wait to catch the poor man. He catches the poor man when he draws him in his net. 10 He crouches, he bows down and helpless men fall by his strong men.
11 He says in his heart, God has forgotten. He hides his face. He will never see it.
12 Arise, O Jehovah, O God, lift up your hand. Do not forget the poor.
13 Why does the wicked man despise God and say in his heart, You will not require it?
14 You have seen. Because you behold mischief and spite, to repay with your hand. The poor man commits himself to you. You have been the helper of the fatherless. 15 Break you the arm of the sinner and the evil man. His wickedness will be sought and will not be found. 16 Jehovah is King everlasting and forever. The nations have perished out of his land. 17 Jehovah, you have heard the desire of the humble. You will prepare their heart, you will cause your ear to hear, 18 to judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more terrify.

Psalms 11:1-150:6

1 I take refuge in Jehovah. How will you* say to my soul, Flee like a bird to your* mountain.
2 Because, behold, the wicked bend the bow. They make ready their arrow upon the string that they may shoot in darkness at the upright in heart. 3 Because the foundations are destroyed, what can a righteous man do?
4 Jehovah is in his holy temple. Jehovah's throne is in heaven. His eyes, behold, his eyelids try, the sons of men. 5 Jehovah tries the righteous man. But his soul hates the wicked man and he who loves violence. 6 He will rain snares upon sinners. Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup.
7 Because Jehovah is righteous. He loves righteousness. The upright man will behold his face.

Psalms 12:1-150:6

1 Help, Jehovah, because the holy man ceases, because the faithful fail from among the sons of men.
2 They speak falsehood everyone with his neighbor. They speak with a flattering lip and with a double heart. 3 Jehovah will cut off all flattering lips, the tongue that speaks great things, 4 who have said, We prevail with our tongue will. Our lips are our own. Who is lord over us?
5 Because of the oppression of the poor, because of the sighing of the needy, now I will arise, says Jehovah. I will set him into the safety he breathes for.
6 The words of Jehovah are pure words, as silver tried in a furnace on the earth, purified seven times. 7 You will keep them, O Jehovah. You will preserve them from this generation everlasting.
8 The wicked walk on every side when vileness is exalted among the sons of men.

Psalms 13:1-150:6

1 How long, O Jehovah? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart all the day? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
3 Consider and answer me, O Jehovah my God. Lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the death, 4 lest my enemy say, I have prevailed against him, lest my adversaries rejoice because I am shaken.
5 But I have trusted in your loving kindness. My heart will rejoice in your salvation. 6 I will sing to Jehovah because he has dealt bountifully with me.

Psalms 14:1-150:6

1 The fool has said in his heart, There is no God.
They are corrupt. They have done abominable works. There is none that does good. 2 Jehovah looked down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if there were any who understood, who sought after God. 3 They are all gone aside. They are morally-corrupt together. There is none who does good, no, not one.
4 Have all the workers of wickedness no knowledge, who eat up my people as they eat bread and do not call upon Jehovah?
5 There they were in great fear, because God is in the generation of the righteous. 6 You* put to shame the counsel of the poor because Jehovah is his refuge.
7 O that the salvation of Israel came out of Zion! When Jehovah brings back the captivity of his people, then Jacob will rejoice and Israel will be glad.

Psalms 15:1-150:6

1 Jehovah, who will journey in your tabernacle? Who will dwell in your holy hill?
2 He who walks uprightly and works righteousness and speaks truth in his heart, 3 he who does not slander with his tongue, nor does evil to his friend, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor, 4 in whose eyes those who reject God are despised, but who honors those who fear Jehovah, he that swears to his own hurt and changes not, 5 he who puts not his money out to interest, nor takes a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will not be shaken everlasting.

Psalms 16:1-150:6

1 Preserve me, O God, because I take refuge in you. 2 You, my soul, have said to Jehovah, You are my Lord. I have no good beyond you.
3 As for the holy ones who are in the earth, they are the excellent in whom is all my delight.
4 Their sorrows will be multiplied who give gifts for another god. Their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, nor take their names upon my lips.
5 Jehovah is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup. You maintain my lot. 6 The lines are fallen to me in pleasant places. Yes, I have a fine heritage. 7 I will praise Jehovah, who has given me counsel. Yes, my heart instructs me in the night seasons.
8 I beheld Jehovah always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices. My flesh also will dwell in hope.
10 Because you will not leave my soul to Sheol, nor will you allow your holy man to see corruption.
11 You made known to me the path of life. You will fill me of joy with your countenance.

Psalms 17:1-150:6

1 Hear the righteous, O Jehovah, attend to my cry. Listen to my prayer, that does not go out from pretending lips. 2 Let my justice come out from your presence. Let your eyes look upon uprightness.
3 You have proved my heart. You have visited me in the night. You have tried me and find nothing. I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.
4 As for the works of men, by the word of your lips I have kept from the ways of a violent man. 5 My steps have held fast to your paths. My feet have not slipped.
6 I have called upon you, because you will answer me, O God. Incline your ear to me and hear my speech. 7 Show your marvelous loving kindness, O you who saves by your right hand those who take refuge from those who rise up.
8 Keep me as the apple of the eye. Hide me under the shadow of your wings, 9 from the wicked who oppress me, my deadly enemies, who encompass me around.
10 They are enclosed in their own fat. They speak proudly with their mouth. 11 They have now encompassed us in our steps. They set their eyes to cast down to the earth. 12 He is like a lion that is greedy of his prey and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
13 Arise, O Jehovah, confront him. Cast him down. Deliver my soul from the wicked by your sword, 14 from men by your hand, O Jehovah, from men of the world whose portion is in this life and whose belly you fill with your treasure. They are satisfied with sons and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
15 As for me, I will behold your face in righteousness. I will be satisfied, when I awake, with your form.

Psalms 18:1-150:6

1 I love you, O Jehovah, my strength. 2 Jehovah is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I will take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my high tower.
3 I will call upon Jehovah, who is worthy to be praised. So I will be saved from my enemies.
4 The cords of death encompassed me and the torrents of wickness made me afraid. 5 The cords of Sheol were all around me. The snares of death came upon me.
6 I called upon Jehovah in my distress and cried to my God. He heard my voice out of his temple and my cry before him came into his ears.
7 Then the earth shook and trembled. The foundations also of the mountains quaked and were shaken because he was angry.
8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils and fire out of his mouth devoured. Coals were kindled by it. 9 He also bowed the heavens and came down and thick darkness was under his feet.
10 And he rode upon a cherub and flew. Yes, he soared upon the wings of the wind.
11 He made darkness his hiding-place, his pavilion all around him, darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies.
12 At the brightness before him his thick clouds passed, hailstones and coals of fire. 13 Jehovah also thundered in the heavens and the Most High uttered his voice, hailstones and coals of fire. 14 And he sent out his arrows and scattered them, Yes, lightnings shot out and confused them.
15 Then the channels of waters appeared and the foundations of the world were laid bare at your rebuke, O Jehovah, at the blast of the breath of your nostrils.
16 He sent from on high, he took me, he drew me out of many waters. 17 He delivered me from my strong enemy and from those who hated me, because they were too mighty for me.
18 They came upon me in the day of my calamity, but Jehovah was my support. 19 He also brought me forth into a large place. He delivered me because he delighted in me.
20 Jehovah has rewarded me according to my righteousness. According to the cleanness of my hands he has recompensed me. 21 Because I have kept the ways of Jehovah and have not wickedly departed from my God.
22 Because all his ordinances were before me and I put not away his statutes from me. 23 I was also perfect with him and I kept myself from my iniquity.
24 Therefore Jehovah has recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
25 You will show yourself merciful with the merciful. You will show yourself perfect with the perfect man. 26 You will show yourself pure with the pure.And with the perverse you will show yourself contrary.
27 Because you will save the afflicted people, but the haughty eyes you will bring down. 28 Because you will light my lamp. Jehovah my God will lighten my darkness. 29 Because by you I run upon a troop and by my God I leap over a wall.
30 As for God, his way is perfect. The word of Jehovah is tried. He is a shield to all those who take refuge in him.
31 Because who is God, except Jehovah? And who is a rock, besides our God, 32 the God who girds me with strength and makes my way perfect? 33 He makes my feet like the feet of female-deers and sets me upon my high places. 34 He teaches my hands to war, so that my arms bend a bow of brass.
35 You have also given me the shield of your salvation and your right hand has held me up and your gentleness has made me great. 36 You have enlarged my steps under me and my feet have not slipped.
37 I will pursue my enemies and overtake them. Neither will I turn again till they are consumed. 38 I will kill* them through, so that they will not be able to rise. They will fall under my feet.
39 For you have girded me with strength to the battle. You have subdued under me those who rose up against me.
40 You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me, that I might cut off those who hate me. 41 They cried, but there was none to save, even to Jehovah, but he answered them not.
42 Then I beat them small as the dust before the wind. I cast them out as the mud of the streets.
43 You have delivered me from the strifes of the people. You have made me the head of the nations. A people whom I have not known will serve me. 44 As soon as they hear of me they will obey me. The foreigners will submit themselves to me. 45 The foreigners will fade away and will come trembling out of their borders.
46 Jehovah lives and my rock is blessed and exalted be the God of my salvation, 47 even the God who executes vengeance for me and subdues peoples under me. 48 He rescues me from my enemies. Yes, you lift me up above those who rise up against me. You deliver me from the violent man.
49 Therefore I will give thanks to you, O Jehovah, among the Gentiles and will sing praises to your name. 50 He gives great deliverance to his king and shows loving kindness to his anointed, to David and to his seed, until everlasting.

Psalms 19:1-150:6

1 The heavens declare the glory of God and the expanse shows his handiwork. 2 Day to day pours out speech and night to night shows knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language in which their voice is not heard.
4 Their line has gone out through all the earth and their words to the end of the world. He has set a tabernacle for the sun in them, 5 which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber and rejoices as a strong man to run his course.
6 His going forth is from the end of the heavens and his circuit to the ends of it and there is nothing hid from the heat of it.
7 The law of Jehovah is perfect, restoring the soul. The testimony of Jehovah is sure, making a simple man wise. 8 The precepts of Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart. The commandment of Jehovah is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of Jehovah is clean, enduring forever. The ordinances of Jehovah are true and righteous altogether. 10 They are more to be desired than gold, yes, than much fine gold. Sweeter also than honey and the droppings of the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them your servant is warned. There is great reward in keeping them.
12 Who can discern his errors? Acquit me from hidden sins. 13 Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins. Do not let them have dominion over me. Then I will be upright and I will acquit him from great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Jehovah, my rock and my redeemer.

Psalms 20:1-150:6

1 Jehovah answer you in the day of trouble. The name of the God of Jacob set you up on high, 2 send you help from the sanctuary and strengthen you out of Zion, 3 remember all your offerings and accept your burnt-sacrifice (Selah), 4 grant your heart's desire and fulfill all your counsel.
5 We will triumph in your salvation and in the name of our God we will set up our banners. Jehovah fulfill all your petitions.
6 Now I know that Jehovah saves his anointed. He will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we will make mention of the name of Jehovah our God. 8 They are bowed down and fallen, but we have risen and stand upright.
9 Save, Jehovah! Let the King answer us when we call.

Psalms 21:1-150:6

1 The king will joy in your strength, O Jehovah. And in your salvation how greatly he will rejoice! 2 You have given him his heart's desire and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah.
3 Because you meet him with the blessings of goodness. You set a crown of fine gold on his head. 4 He asked life from you. You gave it him, even length of days everlasting and forever.
5 His glory is great in your salvation. Honor and majesty you lay upon him. 6 Because you make him to be blessing forever. You rejoiced over him with joy in your presence.
7 Because the king trusts in Jehovah. And through the loving kindness of the Most High he will not be shaken.
8 Your hand will find out all your enemies. Your right hand will find out those who hate you. 9 You will make them as a fiery furnace in the time of your anger. Jehovah will swallow them up in his wrath and the fire will devour them. 10 You will destroy their fruit from the earth and their seed from among the sons of men. 11 Because they intended evil against you. They conceived a device which they are not able to perform. 12 Because you will make them turn their back. You will make ready with your bowstrings against their face.
13 Be exalted, O Jehovah, in your strength. We will sing and praise your power.

Psalms 22:1-150:6

1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me, far from helping me and the words of my groaning? 2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but you do not answer; and in the night, and there is no silence for me. 3 But you are holy, O you who inhabit the praises of Israel.
4 Our fathers trusted in you. They trusted and you delivered them. 5 They cried to you and were delivered. They trusted in you and were not put to shame.
6 But I am a worm and no man, a reproach of men and despised by the people. 7 All those who see me laugh me to scorn. They shoot out the lip. They shake the head, saying, 8 He trusted on Jehovah. Let him deliver him. Let him rescue him, because he delights in him.
9 Because you are he who took me out of the womb. You made me trust upon my mother's breasts. 10 I was cast upon you from the womb. You are my God since my mother bore me.
11 Do not be far from me, because trouble is near, because there is none to help. 12 Many bulls have encompassed me. Strong bulls of Bashan have beset me around. 13 They opened wide their mouth upon me, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
14 I am poured out like water and all my bones are out of joint. My heart is like wax; it is melted within me. 15 My strength is dried up like an earthen vessel and my tongue clings to my jaws and you have set me into the dust of death.
16 Because dogs have encompassed me. A company of evildoers have enclosed me. They pierced my hands and my feet. 17 I may count all my bones. They look and stare upon me. 18 They part my garments among them and they cast a lot upon my raiment.
19 But be not far off, O Jehovah. O you my helper, you hasten to help me. 20 Deliver my soul from the sword, the only one of me from the power of the dog. 21 Save me from the lion's mouth, yes, from the horns of the wild-oxen. You have answered me.
22 I will declare your name to my brothers. I will praise you in the midst of the congregation. 23 You* who fear Jehovah, praise him. All you* the seed of Jacob, glorify him and stand in awe of him, all you* the seed of Israel.
24 Because he has not despised nor made abominable the affliction of the afflicted, neither has he hid his face from him, but when he cried to him, he heard.
25 From you comes my praise in the great assembly. I will pay my vows before those who fear him. 26 The meek will eat and be satisfied. They will praise Jehovah who seek after him. Let your* heart live forever.
27 All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to Jehovah and all the kinfolk of the nations will worship before you. 28 Because the kingdom is Jehovah's and he is the ruler over the nations.
29 All the fat ones of the earth will eat and worship. All those who go down to the dust will bow before him, even he who cannot keep his soul alive. 30 A seed will serve him. It will be told of the Lord to the next generation. 31 They will come and will declare his righteousness to a people that will be born, that he has done it.

Psalms 23:1-150:6

1 Jehovah is my shepherd, I will not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. 3 He restores my soul. He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Even, because I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, because you are with me, your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed my head with oil. My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and loving kindness will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of Jehovah forever.

Psalms 24:1-150:6

1 The earth is Jehovah's and the fullness of it, the world and those who dwell in it. 2 Because he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the floods.
3 Who will ascend into the hill of Jehovah? And who will stand in his holy place?
4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood and has not sworn deceitfully.
5 He will receive a blessing from Jehovah and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is the generation of those who seek after him, who seek your face, even Jacob. Selah.
7 Lift up your* heads, O you* gates and be lifted up, you* doors everlasting and the King of glory will come in.
8 Who is the King of glory? Jehovah strong and mighty; Jehovah mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your* heads, O you* gates. Yes, lift them up, you* everlasting doors and the King of glory will come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? Jehovah of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.

Psalms 25:1-150:6

1 To you, O Jehovah, I lift up my soul.
2 O my God, in you I have trusted. Do not let me be put to shame. Do not let my enemies triumph over me. 3 Yes, none who wait for you will be put to shame. They will be put to shame who deal treacherously without cause.
4 Show me your ways, O Jehovah. Teach me your paths. 5 Guide me in your truth and teach me. Because you are the God of my salvation. I wait all the day on you.
6 Remember, O Jehovah, your tender mercies and your loving kindness. Because they are from everlasting.
7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions. According to your loving kindness you remember me, for your goodness' sake, O Jehovah. 8 Good and upright is Jehovah. Therefore he will instruct sinners in the way. 9 The meek he will guide in justice and the meek he will teach his way. 10 All the paths of Jehovah are loving kindness and truth to such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
11 For your name's sake, O Jehovah, pardon my iniquity, because it is great.
12 What man is he who fears Jehovah? Him he will instruct in the way that he will choose. 13 His soul will dwell at ease and his seed will inherit the land.
14 The friendship of Jehovah is with those who fear him and he will show them his covenant. 15 My eyes are ever toward Jehovah, because he will pluck my feet out of the net.
16 Turn to me and have mercy upon me, because I am desolate and afflicted. 17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged. O bring me out of my distresses. 18 Consider my affliction and my travail and forgive all my sins.
19 Consider my enemies, because they are many. And they hate me with cruel hatred.
20 O keep my soul and deliver me. Do not let me be put to shame, because I take refuge in you. 21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, because I wait for you.
22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all of his troubles.

Psalms 26:1-150:6

1 Judge me, O Jehovah, because I have walked in my integrity. I have also trusted in Jehovah without wavering. 2 Examine me, O Jehovah and prove me. Try my heart and my mind. 3 Because your loving kindness is before my eyes and I have walked in your truth.
4 I have not sat with men of falsehood, nor will I go in with pretenders. 5 I hate the assembly of evildoers and will not sit with the wicked.
6 I will wash my hands in innocence, so I will encompass your altar, O Jehovah, 7 that I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard and tell of all your wondrous works. 8 Jehovah, I love the habitation of your house and the place where your glory dwells.
9 Do not gather my soul with sinners, nor my life with men of blood, 10 in whose hands is wickedness and their right hand is full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity. Redeem me and be merciful to me. 12 My foot stands in an even place. I will praise Jehovah in the congregations.

Psalms 27:1-150:6

1 Jehovah is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? Jehovah is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When evildoers came upon me to eat up my flesh, even my adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell. 3 Though an army should encamp against me, my heart will not fear. Though war should rise against me, even then I will be confident.
4 One thing I have asked of Jehovah, that I will seek after, that I may dwell in the house of Jehovah all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of Jehovah and to inquire in his temple.
5 Because in the day of trouble he will hide me in his shelter. He will hide me in the covering of his tabernacle He will lift me up upon a rock.
6 And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies all around me. And I will offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy. I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to Jehovah.
7 Hear, O Jehovah, when I cry with my voice. Have mercy also upon me and answer me. 8 My heart said to you, I have sought your face. O Jehovah, I will seek your face.
9 Do not hide your face from me. Do not put your servant away in anger. You have been my help. Cast me not off, nor forsake me, O God of my salvation. 10 Because my father and my mother forsake me, then Jehovah will take me up.
11 Teach me your way, O Jehovah and lead me in a plain path, because of my enemies. 12 Deliver me not over to the will of my adversaries. Because false witnesses have risen up against me and such as breathe out cruelty.
13 I believe that I will see the goodness of Jehovah in the land of the living. 14 Wait for Jehovah. Be strong and let your heart take courage. Yes, wait for Jehovah.

Psalms 28:1-150:6

1 To you, O Jehovah, I will call. My rock, do not be deaf to me, lest, if you are silent to me, I become like those who go down into the pit. 2 Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to you, when I lift up my hands toward your holy oracle.
3 Do not draw me away with the wicked and with the workers of wickedness, who speak peace with their neighbors, but mischief is in their hearts.
4 Give them according to their work and according to the wickedness of their practices. Give them after the operation of their hands. Render to them their recompense, 5 because they do not regard the works of Jehovah, nor the operation of his hands. He will break them down and not build them up.
6 Praise Jehovah, because he has heard the voice of my supplications. 7 Jehovah is my strength and my shield. My heart has trusted in him and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoices and with my song I will praise him.
8 Jehovah is their strength and he is a stronghold of salvation to his anointed. 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance. Be also their shepherd and bear them up everlasting.

Psalms 29:1-150:6

1 Give to Jehovah, O you* sons of the mighty, give to Jehovah glory and strength. 2 Give to Jehovah the glory due to his name. Worship Jehovah in holy array.
3 The voice of Jehovah is upon the waters. The God of glory thunders, even Jehovah upon many waters.
4 The voice of Jehovah is powerful. The voice of Jehovah is full of majesty.
5 The voice of Jehovah breaks the cedars. Yes, Jehovah breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. 6 He makes them also to skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild-ox.
7 The voice of Jehovah splits the flames of fire.
8 The voice of Jehovah shakes the wilderness. Jehovah shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
9 The voice of Jehovah makes the female-deers to birth-calves and strips the forests bare. And in his temple everything says, Glory.
10 Jehovah sat as King at the Flood. Yes, Jehovah sits as King everlasting. 11 Jehovah will give strength to his people. Jehovah will bless his people with peace.

Psalms 30:1-150:6

1 I will lift you up, O Jehovah, because you have raised me up and have not made my foes to rejoice over me. 2 O Jehovah my God, I cried to you and you have healed me.
3 O Jehovah, you have brought up my soul from Sheol. You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
4 Sing praise to Jehovah, O you* his holy ones and give thanks to his holy memorial. 5 Because his anger is but for a moment. His favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may abide for the night, but joy is in the morning.
6 As for me, I said in my prosperity, I will not be shaken everlasting. 7 You, Jehovah, had made my mountain to stand strong from your favor. You hid your face; I was troubled. 8 I cried to you, O Jehovah and I made supplication to Jehovah.
9 What profit is there in my blood when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise you? Shall it declare your truth? 10 Hear, O Jehovah and have mercy upon me. Jehovah, be my helper. 11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing. You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, 12 to the end that my glory may sing praise to you and not be silent.
O Jehovah my God, I will give thanks to you everlasting.

Psalms 31:1-150:6

1 I take refuge in you, O Jehovah. Do not let me be put to shame everlasting. Deliver me in your righteousness. 2 Bow down your ear to me. Deliver me speedily. Be to me a strong rock, a house of defense to save me.
3 Because you are my rock and my fortress. Therefore for your name's sake lead me and guide me. 4 Pluck me out of the net that they have laid secretly for me, because you are my stronghold.
5 I commend my spirit into your hand. You have redeemed me, O Jehovah, you, God of truth.
6 I hate those who regard lying vanities, but I trust in Jehovah.
7 I will be glad and rejoice in your loving kindness, for you have seen my affliction. You have known my soul in adversities, 8 and you have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy. You have set my feet in a large place.
9 Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah, because I am in distress. My eye wastes away with grief, yes, my soul and my body. 10 Because my life is spent with sorrow and my years with sighing. My strength fails because of my iniquity and my bones are wasted away.
11 I have become a reproach because of all my adversaries, yes, to my neighbors exceedingly and a fear to my acquaintances. Those who saw me outside fled from me. 12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind. I am like a broken vessel.
13 Because I have heard the slander of many. Terror was on every side, while they took counsel together against me. They devised to take away my life.
14 But I trusted in you, O Jehovah. I said, You are my God. 15 My times are in your hand. Deliver me from the hand of my enemies and from those who persecute me.
16 Make your face to shine upon your servant. Save me in your loving kindness. 17 Do not let me be put to shame, O Jehovah, because I have called upon you.
Let the wicked be put to shame. Let them be silent in Sheol. 18 Let the lying lips be dumb, which arrogantly speak against the righteous man, with pride and contempt.
19 O how great is your goodness, which you have laid up for those who fear you, which you have worked for those who take refuge in you before the sons of men!
20 In the covert of your presence you will hide them from the plotting of man. You will keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
21 Praise Jehovah, because he has shown me his marvelous loving kindness in a strong city. 22 As for me, I said in my haste, I am cut off from before your eyes. Nevertheless you heard the voice of my supplications when I cried to you.
23 O love Jehovah, all you*, his holy ones. Jehovah preserves the faithful and plentifully repays he who deals proudly. 24 Be strong and let your* heart take courage, all you* who hope in Jehovah.

Psalms 32:1-150:6

1 Those whose transgression is forgiven are fortunate, whose sin is covered. 2 The man to whom Jehovah does not reckon sin and in whose spirit there is no deceit is fortunate.
3 Because I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all the day long. 4 Because day and night your hand was heavy upon me. My moisture was changed as with the drought of summer. Selah.
5 I acknowledged my sin to you and I did not hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Jehovah and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
6 On this, let everyone who is devout pray to you in a time when you may be found. Surely when the great waters overflow they will not reach to him. 7 You are my hiding-place. You will preserve me from trouble. You will encompass me around with songs of deliverance. Selah.
8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you will go. I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
9 Do not become as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding, whose trappings must be a bit and bridle to hold them in, else they will not come near to you.
10 Many sorrows will be to the wicked, but he who trusts in Jehovah, loving kindness will encompass him around.
11 Be glad in Jehovah and rejoice, you*, righteous ones. And shout for joy, all you* who are upright in heart.

Psalms 33:1-150:6

1 Rejoice in Jehovah, O you* righteous ones. Praise is becoming for the upright. 2 Give thanks to Jehovah with the harp. Sing praises to him with the psaltery of ten strings. 3 Sing to him a new song. Play skillfully with a shout of joy.
4 Because the word of Jehovah is right and all his work is done in faithfulness. 5 He loves righteousness and justice. The earth is full of the loving kindness of Jehovah.
6 The heavens made were by the word of Jehovah and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. 7 He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap. He lays up the depths in storehouses.
8 Let all the earth fear Jehovah. Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 9 Because he spoke and it was done. He commanded and it stood fast.
10 Jehovah brings the counsel of the nations to nothing. He makes the thoughts of the peoples to be of no effect. 11 The counsel of Jehovah stands fast everlasting, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
12 The nation whose God is Jehovah is fortunate, the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance.
13 Jehovah looks from heaven. He beholds all the sons of men. 14 From the place of his habitation he looks forth upon all the inhabitants of the earth; 15 he who fashions the hearts of them all, who considers all their works.
16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an army. A mighty man is not delivered by great strength. 17 A horse is a vain thing for safety, nor does he deliver any by his great power.
18 Behold, the eye of Jehovah is upon those who fear him, upon those who hope in his loving kindness, 19 to deliver their soul from death and to keep them alive in famine.
20 Our soul has waited for Jehovah. He is our help and our shield. 21 Because our heart will rejoice in him because we have trusted in his holy name.
22 Let your loving kindness, O Jehovah, be upon us, just-as we have hoped in you.

Psalms 34:1-150:6

1 I will praise Jehovah at all times. His praise will continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul will make its boast in Jehovah. The humble will hear of it and be glad. 3 O magnify Jehovah with me and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought Jehovah and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. 5 They looked to him and were radiant and their faces will never be confounded.
6 This poor man cried and Jehovah heard him and saved him out of all his troubles. 7 The messenger of Jehovah encamps all around those who fear him and delivers them.
8 O taste and see that Jehovah is good. The man who takes refuge in him is fortunate. 9 O fear Jehovah, you* his, holy ones, because there is no want to those who fear him.
10 The young lions do lack and suffer hunger, but those who seek Jehovah will not want any good thing.
11 Come, you* children, listen to me. I will teach you* the fear of Jehovah. 12 What man is he who desires life and loves many days, that he may see good? 13 Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. 14 Depart from evil and do good. Seek peace and pursue it.
15 The eyes of Jehovah are toward the righteous and his ears are open to their prayer. 16 (The face of Jehovah is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.)
17 They cried and Jehovah heard and delivered them out of all their troubles. 18 Jehovah is near to those who are of a broken heart and saves such as are of a crushed spirit.
19 The afflictions of the righteous are many, but Jehovah delivers him out of them all. 20 He keeps all his bones. Not one of them is broken.
21 Evil will kill the wicked and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
22 Jehovah redeems the soul of his servants and none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.

Psalms 35:1-150:6

1 Contend, O Jehovah, with those who contend with me. Fight against those who fight against me. 2 Take hold of shield and buckler and stand up for my help. 3 Draw out the spear also and stop the way against those who pursue me. Say to my soul, I am your salvation.
4 Let them be put to shame and brought to dishonor who seek after my soul. Let them be turned back and confounded who devise my hurt. 5 Let them be as chaff before the wind and the messenger of Jehovah driving them on. 6 Let their way be dark and slippery and the messenger of Jehovah pursuing them.
7 Because without cause they have hid their net for me in a pit. Without cause they have dug a pit for my soul.
8 Let destruction come upon him, he will not know and let his net that he has hid catch himself. Let him fall in it with destruction.
9 And my soul will be joyful in Jehovah. It will rejoice in his salvation. 10 All my bones will say, Jehovah, who is like you, who delivers a poor man from him who is too strong for him, yes, a poor and needy man from him who robs him?
11 Unrighteous witnesses rise up, they ask me of things that I do not know. 12 They reward me evil for good, bereaving my soul.
13 But as for me, when they were sick my clothing was sackcloth. I afflicted my soul with fasting and my prayer returned into my own bosom. 14 I behaved myself as though it had been my friend or my brother. I bowed down mourning, as he who weeps for his mother.
15 But in my adversity they rejoiced and gathered themselves together. The slayers gathered themselves together against me and I did not know it. They tore me and ceased not. 16 Like the profane mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
17 Lord, how long will you look on? Rescue my soul from their destructions, my only one from the lions. 18 I will give you thanks in the great assembly. I will praise you among many people.
19 Do not let those who are my enemies wrongfully rejoice over me. Neither let them wink with the eye who hate me without a cause.
20 Because they do not speak peace, but they devise deceitful words against those who are quiet in the land. 21 Yes, they opened their mouth wide against me. They said, Aha, aha, our eye has seen it.
22 You have seen it, O Jehovah. Do not keep silence. O Lord, do not be far from me. 23 Stir up yourself and awake to the justice to me, to my cause, my God and my Lord. 24 Judge me, O Jehovah my God, according to your righteousness and do not let them rejoice over me.
25 Do not let them say in their heart, Aha, so would we have it. Do not let them say, We have swallowed him up. 26 Let them be put to shame and confounded together who rejoice at my hurt. Let them be clothed with shame and dishonor who have become great against me.
27 Let them shout for joy and be glad, who favor my righteous cause. Yes, let them say continually, Jehovah become great, who has pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. 28 And my tongue will talk of your righteousness and of your praise all the day long.

Psalms 36:1-150:6

1 The transgression of the wicked man says within my heart, There is no fear of God before his eyes. 2 Because he flatters himself in his own eyes, that his iniquity will not be found out and be hated.
3 The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit. He has ceased to be wise and to do good. 4 He devises iniquity upon his bed. He sets himself in a way that is not good. He does not reject evil. 5 Your loving kindness, O Jehovah, is in the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. 6 Your righteousness is like the mountains of God. Your judgments are a great deep. O Jehovah, you preserve man and beast.
7 How precious is your loving kindness, O God and the sons of men take refuge under the shadow of your wings.
8 They will be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of your house and you will make them drink of the river of your pleasures. 9 Because the fountain of life is with you. We will see light in your light.
10 O prolong your loving kindness to those who know you and your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 Do not let the foot of pride come against me and do not let the hand of sinners drive me away. 12 The workers of unrighteousness have fallen there. They are thrust down and will not be able to rise.

Psalms 37:1-150:6

1 Do not inflame yourself because of evildoers, nor be envious against those who work unrighteousness. 2 Because they will soon be cut down like the grass and wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in Jehovah and do good. Dwell in the land and feed on his faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself also in Jehovah and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to Jehovah. Trust also in him and he will do it. 6 And he will make your righteousness to go forth as the light and your justice as the noon-day.
7 Rest in Jehovah and wait patiently for him. Do not inflame yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who makes wicked devices.
8 Cease from anger and forsake wrath. Do not inflame yourself, it leads only to evil-doing. 9 Because evildoers will be cut off, but those who wait for Jehovah, they will inherit the land.
10 Yet a little while and the wicked man will not be. Yes, you will diligently consider his place and he will not be.
11 But the meek will inherit the land and will delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12 The wicked man plots against the righteous man and gnashes upon him with his teeth. 13 The Lord will laugh at him, because he sees that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn out the sword and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, to kill such as are upright in the way. 15 Their sword will enter into their own heart and their bows will be broken.
16 Better is a little that the righteous man has than the abundance of many wicked men. 17 Because the arms of the wicked will be broken, but Jehovah upholds the righteous. 18 Jehovah knows the days of the perfect and their inheritance will be everlasting.
19 They will not be put to shame in the time of evil and in the days of famine they will be satisfied.
20 Because the wicked will perish and the enemies of Jehovah are as the fat of lambs: they will disintegrate; they will disintegrate away into smoke. 21 The wicked man borrows and pays not again, but the righteous man deals graciously and gives.
22 Because such as are blessed by him will inherit the land and those who are cursed by him will be cut off.
23 A man's goings are established by Jehovah and he delights in his way. 24 Because if he falls, he will not be utterly cast down, because Jehovah upholds him with his hand.
25 I have been young and now am old, yet I have not seen a righteous man forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. 26 All the day long he deals graciously and lends and his seed is blessed.
27 Depart from evil and do good and dwell everlasting. 28 Because Jehovah loves justice and does not forsake his holy ones. They are preserved everlasting, but the seed of the wicked will be cut off.
29 The righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever.
30 The mouth of a righteous man talks of wisdom and his tongue speaks justice. 31 The law of his God is in his heart. None of his steps will slide.
32 A wicked man watches a righteous man and seeks to kill him. 33 Jehovah will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
34 Wait for Jehovah and keep his way and he will exalt you to inherit the land. When sinners are cut off, you will see it.
35 I have seen a wicked man in great power and spreading himself like a green tree in its native soil. 36 But I passed by, and behold, he was not. Yes, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37 Keep as the perfect man and behold the upright, because there is a happy end to the man of peace. 38 As for transgressors, they will be destroyed together. The end of the wicked will be cut off. 39 But the salvation of the righteous is from Jehovah. He is their stronghold in the time of trouble, 40 and Jehovah helps them and rescues them. He rescues them from sinners and saves them, because they have taken refuge in him.

Psalms 38:1-150:6

1 O Jehovah, rebuke me not in your wrath, nor discipline me in your hot displeasure. 2 Because your arrows stick fast in me and your hand presses me severely. 3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of your indignation, nor is there any health in my bones because of my sin.
4 Because my iniquities have gone over my head. As a heavy burden they are too heavy for me. 5 My wounds are loathsome and corrupt, because of my foolishness.
6 I am pained and bowed down greatly. I go mourning all the day long. 7 Because my loins are filled with burning and there is no soundness in my flesh. 8 I am faint and severely bruised. I have groaned because of the roaring of my heart.
9 Lord, all my desire is before you and my groaning is not hid from you. 10 My heart throbs, my strength fails me. As for the light of my eyes, it also has gone from me.
11 Those I love and my friends stand apart from my plague and my kinsmen stand afar off. 12 Those also who seek after my life lay snares for me. And those who seek my hurt speak mischievous things and meditate deceits all the day long.
13 But I do not hear like a deaf man. And I am as a mute man who does not open his mouth. 14 Yes, I am as a man who hears not and in whose mouth are no reproofs.
15 Because I hope in you, O Jehovah. You will answer, O Lord my God.
16 Because I said, Lest they rejoice over me. When my foot slips, they magnify themselves against me. 17 Because I am ready to fall and my sorrow is continually before me. 18 Because I will declare my iniquity. I will be sorry for my sin.
19 But my enemies are lively and are strong and those who hate me wrongfully are multiplied. 20 They who also render evil for good are adversaries to me, because I follow the good thing.
21 Do not forsake, O Jehovah. O my God, do not be far from me. 22 Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation.

Psalms 39:1-150:6

1 I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I do not sin with my tongue. I will keep my mouth with a bridle while the wicked man is before me. 2 I was mute with silence. I held my peace, even from good and my sorrow was stirred.
3 My heart was hot within me. While I was musing the fire burned. Then I spoke with my tongue: 4 Jehovah, make me to know my end and the measure of my days, what it is. Let me know how frail I am. 5 Behold, you have made my days as the width of hands and my life-time is as nothing before you. Surely every man at his best condition is altogether vanity. Selah.
6 Surely every man walks in a shadow. Surely they are in an uproar in vain. He heaps up and does not know who will gather them.
7 And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in you. 8 Deliver me from all my transgressions. Make me not the reproach of the foolish.
9 I was mute. I did not open my mouth, because you did it. 10 Remove your stroke away from me. I am consumed by the blow of your hand.
11 When you have disciplined a man with rebukes for iniquity, you make his desires to disintegrate like a moth. Surely every man is vanity. Selah.
12 Hear my prayer, O Jehovah and listen to my cry. Do not keep silent at my tears, because I am a stranger with you, a traveler, as all my fathers were. 13 O spare me, that I may recover strength before I go from here and be no more.

Psalms 40:1-150:6

1 I waited patiently for Jehovah and he inclined to me and heard my cry. 2 He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the muddy clay and he set my feet upon a rock and established my steps. 3 And he has put a new song in my mouth, even praise to our God. Many will see it and fear and will trust in Jehovah.
4 The man is fortunate who makes Jehovah his trust and respects not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
5 Many, O Jehovah my God, are the wonderful works which you have done and your thoughts which are toward us. They cannot be set in order to you. If I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you have prepared for me. Whole burnt offering and sacrifice for sin you did not require. 7 Then I said, Behold, I have come as it is written of me in the scroll of a book.
8 I delight to do your will, O my God. Yes, your law is within my heart.
9 I have proclaimed good news of righteousness in the great assembly. Behold, I will not refrain my lips. O Jehovah, you know. 10 I have not hid 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.
11 Do not withhold your tender mercies from me, O Jehovah. Let your loving kindness and your truth continually preserve me, 12 because innumerable evils have encompassed me around. My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up. They are more than the hairs of my head and my heart has failed me. 13 Be pleased, O Jehovah, to deliver me. Make haste to help me, O Jehovah.
14 Let them be put to shame and humiliated together who seek after my soul to destroy it. Let them be turned backward and brought to dishonor who delight in my hurt. 15 Let them be desolate because of their shame who say to me, Aha, aha.
16 Let all those who seek you rejoice and be glad in you. Let such as love your salvation say continually, Jehovah is great.
17 But I am poor and needy, yet the Lord thinks upon me. You are my help and my deliverer. Make no delay, O my God.

Psalms 41:1-150:6

1 He who considers a poor man is fortunate. Jehovah will deliver him in the day of evil. 2 Jehovah will preserve him and keep him alive and he will be fortunate upon the earth. And you do not deliver him to the will of his enemies.
3 Jehovah will support him upon the bed of languishing. You will make all his bed in his sickness.
4 I said, O Jehovah, have mercy upon me. Heal my soul, because I have sinned against you.
5 My enemies speak evil against me, saying, When will he die and his name perish? 6 And if he comes to see me, he speaks falsehood. His heart gathers wickness to itself. When he goes abroad, he tells it.
7 All who hate me whisper together against me. Against me they devise my hurt. 8 A wicked speech, they say, clings firm to him. And now that he lies he will rise up no more.
9 Yes, my own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, who ate of my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.
10 But you, O Jehovah, have mercy upon me and raise me up that I may repay them. 11 I know that you delight in me by this, because my enemy does not triumph over me. 12 And as for me, you uphold me in my integrity and set me before your face everlasting.
13 Praise Jehovah, the God of Israel, from everlasting and to everlasting. Truly and Truly.

Psalms 42:1-150:6

1 As the male-deer pants after the water brooks, so my soul pants after you, O God. 2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? 3 My tears have been my food day and night, while they continually say to me, Where is your God?
4 These things I remember and pour out my soul within me, because I went with the crowd and led them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, a multitude keeping holy day.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you in an uproar within me? Hope in God, because I will yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me. Therefore I remember you from the land of the Jordan and the Hermons, from the hill Mizar.
7 Deep calls to deep at the voice of your waterfalls. All your waves and your billows have gone over me. 8 Yet Jehovah will command his loving kindness in the daytime and in the night his song will be with me, even a prayer to the God of my life.
9 I will say to God my rock, Why have you forgotten me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? 10 As with a sword in my bones, my adversaries reproach me; while they continually say to me, Where is your God?
11 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you in an uproar within me? Hope in God, because I will yet praise him, the help of my countenance and my God.

Psalms 43:1-150:6

1 Judge me, O God and plead my cause against a profane nation. O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
2 Because you are the God of my strength. Why have you cast me off? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
3 O send out your light and your truth. Let them lead me. Let them bring me to your holy hill and to your tabernacles. 4 Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy and I will praise you upon the harp, O God, my God.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you in an uproar within me? Hope in God, because I will yet praise him, the help of my countenance and my God.

Psalms 44:1-150:6

1 We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work you did in their days, in the days of long-ago. 2 You drove out the nations with your hand, but you planted them. You afflicted the peoples, but you spread them abroad.
3 Because they did not get the land in possession by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them, but your right hand and your arm and the light of your countenance, because you were favorable to them.
4 You are my King, O God. Command deliverance for Jacob. 5 Through you we will push down our adversaries. Through your name we will tread them under who rise up against us.
6 Because I will not trust in my bow, nor will my sword save me. 7 Because you have saved us from our adversaries and have put them to shame who hate us.
8 We have made our boast all the day long in God and we will give thanks to your name everlasting. Selah.
9 But now you have cast off and brought us to dishonor and do not go forth with our armies. 10 You make us to turn back from the adversary. And those who hate us take spoil for themselves.
11 You have made us like sheep for food and have scattered us among the nations. 12 You sell your people for nothing and have not increased by their price.
13 You make us a reproach to our neighbors, a scoffing and a ridicule to those who are all around us. 14 You make us a proverb among the nations, a shaking of the head among the peoples.
15 All the day long my dishonor is before me and the shame of my face has covered me, 16 from the voice of him who reproaches and blasphemes, because of the enemy and the avenger.
17 All this has come upon us, yet we have not forgotten you, nor have we dealt falsely in your covenant. 18 Our heart is not turned back, nor have our steps declined from your way, 19 that you have greatly broken us in the place of jackals and covered us with the shadow of death.
20 If we have forgotten the name of our God, or spread forth our hands to a strange god, 21 will not God search this out? Because he knows the secrets of the heart.
22 We are killed all the day long because of belief upon you. We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
23 Awake, why do you sleep, O Lord? Arise, cast not off forever. 24 Why do you hide your face and forget our affliction and our oppression?
25 Because our soul is bowed down to the dust; our body clings to the ground. 26 Rise up for our help and redeem us for your loving kindness' sake.

Psalms 45:1-150:6

1 My heart overflows with a good matter. I speak the things which I have made concerning the king. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. 2 You are fairer than the sons of men. Favor is poured into your lips. Therefore God has blessed you everlasting.
3 Gird your sword upon your thigh, O mighty one, your glory and your majesty. 4 And in your majesty ride on prosperously because of truth and gentleness and righteousness. And your right hand will teach you awesome things.
5 Your arrows are sharp. The peoples fall under you. They are in the heart of the king's enemies.
6 Your throne, O God, is everlasting and forever. A scepter of straightness is the scepter of your kingdom. 7 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness. Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your companions.
8 All your garments smell of myrrh and aloes and cassia. Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made you glad. 9 Kings' daughters are among your honorable women. At your right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir.
10 Listen, O daughter and consider and incline your ear. Forget also your own people and your father's house. 11 So will the king desire your beauty, because he is your lord and bow to him. 12 And the daughter of Tyre will adore him with a gift. The rich among the people will entreat your favor. 13 Inside, the king's daughter is all glorious. Her clothing is embroidered with gold.
14 She will be led to the king in embroidered work. The virgins, her companions who follow her, will be brought to you. 15 They will be led with gladness and rejoicing. They will enter into the king's palace. 16 Instead of your fathers will be your sons, whom you will make rulers in all the earth.
17 I will make your name to be remembered in all generations. Therefore the peoples will give you thanks everlasting and forever.

Psalms 46:1-150:6

1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth changes and though the mountains are shaken into the heart of the seas, 3 though the waters of it roar and are troubled, though the mountains tremble with the swelling of it. Selah.
4 There is a river, the streams of which make the city of God glad, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her. She will not be shaken. God will help her and that right early. 6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were shaken, he uttered his voice, the earth melted. 7 Jehovah of hosts is with us. The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
8 Come, behold the works of Jehovah, what desolations he has made in the earth. 9 He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth. He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two. He burns the chariots in the fire.
10 Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth. 11 Jehovah of hosts is with us. The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Psalms 47:1-150:6

1 O clap your* hands, all you* peoples. Shout to God with the voice of triumph. 2 Because Jehovah Most High is awesome. He is a great King over all the earth.
3 He subdues peoples under us and nations under our feet. 4 He chooses our inheritance for us, the glory of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
5 God has gone up with a shout, Jehovah with the sound of a trumpet. 6 Sing praise to God, sing praises. Sing praises to our King, sing praises.
7 Because God is the King of all the earth. Sing praises with understanding. 8 God reigns over the nations. God sits upon his holy throne.
9 The nobles of the peoples are gathered together, the people of the God of Abraham. Because the shields of the earth belong to God. He is greatly exalted.

Psalms 48:1-150:6

1 Great is Jehovah and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in his holy mountain. 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.
3 God has made himself known in her palaces for a refuge. 4 Because behold, the kings assembled themselves. They passed by together.
5 They saw it, then were they amazed. They were dismayed, they hastened away. 6 Trembling took hold of them there, pain, as of a woman in travail.
7 You break the ships of Tarshish with the east wind. 8 As we have heard, so we have seen in the city of Jehovah of hosts, in the city of our God, God will establish it everlasting. Selah.
9 We have thought on your loving kindness, O God, in the midst of your temple. 10 As is your name, O God, so is your praise to the ends of the earth. Your right hand is full of righteousness.
11 Let Mount Zion be glad. Let the daughters of Judah rejoice because of your judgments.48:12 Walk about Zion and go all around her. Number the towers of it,

Psalms 48:13-150:6

13 mark well her ramparts, consider her palaces, that you* may tell it to the generation following. 14 Because this God is our God everlasting and forever. He will be our guide even to death.

Psalms 49:1-150:6

1 Hear this, all you* peoples. Listen, all you* inhabitants of the world, 2 both low and high, rich and poor together. 3 My mouth will speak wisdom and the meditation of my heart will be of understanding.
4 I will incline my ear to a proverb. I will open my dark saying upon the harp. 5 Why should I fear in the days of evil, when iniquity at my heels encompasses me about?
6 Those who trust in their wealth and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches, 7 none can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him 8 (for the redemption of their life is costly and it fails everlasting), 9 that he should still live always, that he should not see corruption. 10 Because he will see it.
Wise men die. The fool and the stupid alike perish and leave their wealth to others. 11 Their inward thought is that their houses are everlasting, their dwelling-places to all generations. They call their lands after their own names.
12 Even a man in splendor does not abide. He is like the beasts that perish. 13 This way of theirs is their folly. Yet men approve their sayings after them. Selah.
14 They are appointed as a flock for Sheol. Death will be their shepherd and the upright will have dominion over them in the morning. And their beauty will be for Sheol to consume, that there is no habitation for it.
15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol, because he will receive me. Selah.
16 Do not be afraid because a man is made rich, because the glory of his house is increased. 17 Because when he dies he will carry nothing away. His glory will not descend after him.
18 Because while he lived he blessed his soul (and men praise you, when you do well for yourself), 19 he will go to the generation of his fathers. They will never see the light.
20 A man who is in splendor and does not understand, is like the beasts that perish.

Psalms 50:1-150:6

1 The Mighty One, God, Jehovah, has spoken and called the earth from the rising of the sun to the going down of it. 2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shone forth.
3 Our God comes and does not keep silence. A fire devours before him and it whirlwinds much all around him. 4 He calls to the heavens above and to the earth, that he may judge his people.
5 Gather my holy ones together to me, those who have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. 6 And the heavens will declare his righteousness, because God is judge himself. Selah.
7 Hear, O my people and I will speak, O Israel and I will testify to you, I am God, even your God. 8 I will not reprove you for your sacrifices and your burnt offerings being continually before me. 9 I will take no bullock out of your house, nor male-goats out of your folds.
10 Because every beast of the forest is mine and the cattle upon a thousand hills. 11 I know all the birds of the mountains and the wild beasts of the field are mine.
12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you, because the world is mine and the fullness of it. 13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
14 Offer to God the sacrifice of thanksgiving and pay your vows to the Most High. 15 And call upon me in the day of trouble. I will deliver you and you will glorify me.
16 But to the wicked man God says, What have you to do to declare my statutes and that you have taken my covenant in your mouth, 17 since you hate instruction and cast my words behind you?
18 When you saw a thief, you consented with him and have been partaker with adulterers. 19 You give your mouth to evil and your tongue frames deceit. 20 You sit and speak against your brother; you slander your own mother's son.
21 These things you have done and I kept silence. You thought that I was altogether such a one as yourself. But I will reprove you and set them in order before your eyes.
22 Now consider this, you* who forget God, lest I tear you* in pieces and there is none to deliver: 23 Whoever offers the sacrifice of thanksgiving glorifies me. And to him who orders his way aright I will show the salvation of God.

Psalms 51:1-150:6

1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to your loving kindness. According to the multitude of your tender mercies blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. 3 Because I know my transgressions and my sin is always before me.
4 Against you, you only, I have sinned and done what is evil in your sight, that you may be justified when you speak and may prevail when you are criticized.
5 Behold, I was brought out in iniquity and my mother conceived me in sin.
6 Behold, you desire truth in the inward parts and in the hidden part you will make me to know wisdom.
7 Purify me with hyssop and I will be clean. Wash me and I will be whiter than snow. 8 Make me to hear joy and gladness, that the bones which you have broken may rejoice.
9 Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquities. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from your presence and take not your holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit.
13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways and sinners will be turned to you.
14 Deliver me from blood guiltiness, O God, you God of my salvation. And my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness.
15 O Lord, open you my lips and my mouth will show forth your praise. 16 Because you delight not in sacrifice, else I would give it. You have no pleasure in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit. A broken and crushed heart, O God, you will not despise.
18 Do good in your good pleasure to Zion. Build you the walls of Jerusalem. 19 Then you will delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, in burnt offering and in whole burnt offering. Then they will offer bullocks upon your altar.

Psalms 52:1-150:6

1 Why boast you yourself in mischief, O mighty man? The loving kindness of God is continual. 2 Your tongue devises wickedness, like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
3 You love evil more than good and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah. 4 You love all devouring words, O you deceitful tongue.
5 God will likewise destroy you forever. He will take you up and pluck you out of your tent and root you out of the land of the living. Selah.
6 The righteous also will see and fear and will laugh at him, saying, 7 Behold, this is the man who did not make God his strength, but trusted in the abundance of his riches and strengthened himself in his wickedness.
8 But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the loving kindness of God everlasting and forever. 9 I will give you thanks everlasting, because you have done it. And I will hope in your name in the presence of your holy ones, because it is good.

Psalms 53:1-150:6

1 The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they and have done abominable unrighteousness. There is none who does good. 2 God looked down from heaven upon the sons of men, to see if there were any who understood, who seek after God. 3 Every one of them has gone back. They are morally-corrupt all together. There is none who does good, no, not one.
4 Have the workers of wickedness no knowledge, who eat up my people as they eat bread and do not call upon God?
5 They were in great fear there, where no fear was, for God has scattered the bones of him who encamps against you. You have put them to shame because God has rejected them.
6 O that the salvation of Israel came out of Zion! When God brings back the captivity of his people, then Jacob will rejoice and Israel will be glad.

Psalms 54:1-150:6

1 Save me, O God, by your name and judge me in your might. 2 Hear my prayer, O God. Listen to the words of my mouth. 3 Because strangers have risen up against me and violent men have sought after my soul. They have not set God before them. Selah.
4 Behold, God is my helper. The Lord is of those who uphold my soul. 5 He will reward the evil to my enemies. Destroy them in your truth.
6 I will sacrifice to you with a free-will offering. I will give thanks to your name, O Jehovah, because it is good. 7 Because he has delivered me out of all trouble and my eye has seen it upon my enemies.

Psalms 55:1-150:6

1 Listen to my prayer, O God and do not hide yourself from my supplication. 2 Attend to me and answer me. I am restless in my complaint and moan, 3 from the voice of the enemy, from the oppression of the wicked. Because they shake down iniquity upon me and they persecute me in anger.
4 My heart is greatly pained within me and the terrors of death have fallen upon me. 5 Fearfulness and trembling have come upon me and horror has overwhelmed me.
6 And I said, O that I had wings like a dove! Then I would fly away and be at rest. 7 Behold, then I would wander far off. I would lodge in the wilderness. Selah. 8 I would hasten myself to a shelter from the stormy wind and tempest.
9 Destroy, O Lord, divide their tongue, because I have seen violence and strife in the city. 10 Day and night they go about it, upon the walls of it. Iniquity and mischief also are in the midst of it. 11 Wickedness is in the midst of it. Oppression and deceit do not depart from its streets.
12 Because it was not an enemy who reproached me. Then I could have borne it. Neither was it he who hated me that magnified himself against me. Then I would have hid myself from him.
13 But it was you, a man my equal, my companion and my familiar friend. 14 We took sweet counsel together. We walked in the house of God with the crowd.
15 Let death come suddenly upon them. Let them go down alive into Sheol. Because wickedness is in their dwelling, in the midst of them.
16 As for me, I will call upon God and Jehovah will save me. 17 Evening and morning and at noonday, I will complain and moan. And he will hear my voice.
18 He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me, because there were many by me.
19 God will hear and respond to them, (even he who abides of long-ago), Selah, men who have no changes and who do not fear God. 20 He has put forth his hands against such as were at peace with him. He has profaned his covenant.
21 His mouth was smooth as butter, but his heart was war. His words were softer than oil, yet they were drawn swords. 22 (Cast your burden upon Jehovah and he will sustain you. He will not allow the righteous man to be shaken everlasting.)
23 But you, O God, will bring them down into the pit of destruction. Bloodthirsty and deceitful men will not live out half their days, but I will trust in you.

Psalms 56:1-150:6

1 Be merciful to me, O God, because man would swallow me up. Fighting all the day long he oppresses me. 2 My enemies would swallow me up all the day long, because they are many who fight proudly against me.
3 I am afraid in the day, I will put my trust in you. 4 I will praise his word in God. I have put my trust in God. I will not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?
5 All the day long they pervert my words. All their thoughts are against me for evil. 6 They gather themselves together. They hide themselves. They mark my steps, even as they have waited for my soul.
7 Shall they escape by wickedness? Cast down the peoples, in anger, O God. 8 You number my wanderings. Put my tears into your skin-container. Are they not in your book? 9 Then will my enemies turn back in the day that I call. This I know, that God is for me.
10 I will praise his word in God. I will praise his word in Jehovah. 11 I have put my trust in God. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
12 Your vows are upon me, O God. I will render thank offerings to you. 13 Because you have delivered my soul from death and my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living.

Psalms 57:1-150:6

1 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, because my soul takes refuge in you. Yes, in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge until calamities have passed by. 2 I will cry to God Most High, to God who performs for me.
3 He will send from heaven and save me from the reproach of him who would swallow me up. Selah. God will send forth his loving kindness and his truth.
4 My soul is among lions. I lie among those who are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows and their tongue is a sharp sword.
5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, your glory above all the earth.
6 They have prepared a net for my steps. My soul is bowed down. They have dug a pit before me. They are fallen into the midst of it themselves. Selah.
7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed. I will sing, yes, I will sing praises. 8 Awake up, my glory. Awake, psaltery and harp. I myself will awake right early.
9 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples. I will sing praises to you among the nations. 10 Because your loving kindness is great to the heavens and your truth to the skies.
11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, your glory above all the earth.

Psalms 58:1-150:6

1 Do you* indeed speak righteousness in silence? Do you* judge in uprightness, O you* sons of men?
2 No! You* work wickedness in heart. You* weigh out the violence of your* hands in the earth. 3 The wicked are estranged from the womb. They go-astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies. 4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent, like the deaf adder that stops her ear, 5 which listens not to the voice of charmers, charming ever so wisely.
6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth. Break out the great teeth of the young lions, O Jehovah. 7 Let them melt away as water that runs with haste. When he aims his arrows, let them be as though they were cut off, 8 as a snail which melts and passes away, as the untimely birth of a woman, that has not seen the sun.
9 Before your* pots can feel the thorns, he will take them away with a whirlwind, the green and the burning alike.
10 A righteous man will rejoice because he sees the vengeance. He will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked, 11 so that men will say, Truly there is a reward for the righteous man. Truly there is a God who judges in the earth.

Psalms 59:1-150:6

1 Deliver me from my enemies, O my God. Set me on high from those who rise up against me. 2 Deliver me from the workers of wickedness and save me from the bloodthirsty men. 3 Because behold, they lie in wait for my soul.
The mighty gather themselves together against me, not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O Jehovah. 4 They run and prepare themselves without my fault. Awake to help me and behold.
5 Even you, O Jehovah God of hosts, the God of Israel, arise to visit all the nations. Do not be merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah.
6 They return at evening. They howl like a dog and go all around the city. 7 Behold, they pour out words with their mouth. Swords are in their lips, because they say, Who hears?
8 But you, O Jehovah, will mock them. You will laugh all the nations to scorn.
9 O my strength, I will give heed to you, because God is my high tower. 10 My God with his loving kindness will meet me. God will let me look upon my enemies.
11 Kill them not, lest my people forget. Scatter them by your power and bring them down, O Lord our shield, 12 for the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips. Let them even be taken in their pride and on the cursing and lying which they speak.
13 Consume them in wrath, consume them, so that they will be no more. And let them know that God rules in Jacob, to the ends of the earth. Selah.
14 And at evening let them return, let them howl like a dog and go all around the city. 15 They will wander up and down for food and abide all night if they are not satisfied.
16 But I will sing of your strength. Yes, I will sing aloud of your loving kindness in the morning. Because you have been my high tower and a refuge in the day of my distress. 17 To you, O my strength, I will sing praises. Because God is my high tower, the God of my mercy.

Psalms 60:1-150:6

1 O God you have cast us off. You have broken us down. You have been angry. O restore us again. 2 You have made the land to tremble. You have torn it. Heal the breaking of it, because it shakes.
3 You have shown your people hard things. You have made us to drink the wine of staggering. 4 You have given a banner to those who fear you, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.
5 That your beloved ones may be delivered, save with your right hand and answer us.
6 God has spoken in his holiness. I will rejoice. I will divide Shechem and measure out the valley of Succoth. 7 Gilead is mine and Manasseh is mine. Ephraim also is the defense of my head. Judah is my scepter.
8 Moab is my wash pot. I will cast my shoe upon Edom. Philistia, shout because of me. 9 Who will bring me into the strong city? Who has led me to Edom?
10 Have you not, O God, cast us off? And you do not go forth, O God, with our armies. 11 Give us help against the adversary, for vain is the help of man. 12 Through God we will do valiantly, for he it is who will tread down our adversaries.

Psalms 61:1-150:6

1 Hear my cry, O God. Attend to my prayer. 2 From the end of the earth I will call to you when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 Because you have been a refuge for me, a strong tower from the enemy. 4 I will dwell in your tabernacle everlasting. I will take refuge in the covert of your wings. Selah.
5 Because you, O God, have heard my vows. You have given me the heritage of those who fear your name. 6 You will prolong the king's life. His years will be as generation to generation. 7 He will abide before God everlasting.
O prepare loving kindness and truth that they may preserve him. 8 So I will sing praise to your name forever, that I may daily perform my vows.

Psalms 62:1-150:6

1 My soul waits in silence for God only. My salvation is from him. 2 He only is my rock and my salvation, my high tower. I will not be greatly shaken.
3 How long will you* set upon a man, that you* may kill, all of you*, like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence? 4 They only consult to thrust him down from his dignity. They delight in lies. They praise with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.
5 My soul, wait in silence for God only, because my expectation is from him. 6 He only is my rock and my salvation, my high tower. I will not be shaken. 7 My salvation and my glory is with God. The rock of my strength and my refuge, is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times, you* the people. Pour out your* heart before him. God is a refuge for us. Selah.
9 Surely men of low degree are vanity and men of high degree are a lie. They will go up in the balances. They are together lighter than vanity.
10 Do not trust in oppression and do not become vain in robbery. Because if riches increase, do not set your* heart on it.
11 God has spoken once, twice I have heard this, that power belongs to God. 12 Also to you, O Lord, belongs loving kindness, because you render to every man according to his work.

Psalms 63:1-150:6

1 O God, you are my God. I will earnestly seek you. My soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for you, in a dry and weary land, where is no water. 2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary to see your power and your glory. 3 Because your loving kindness is better than life, my lips will praise you.
4 So I will bless you while I live. I will lift up my hands in your name. 5 My soul will be satisfied as with marrow and fatness. And my mouth will praise you with joyful lips 6 when I remember you upon my bed and meditate on you in the night-watches.
7 Because you have been my help and in the shadow of your wings I will rejoice. 8 My soul follows close after you. Your right hand upholds me.
9 But those who seek my soul to destroy it, will go into the lower parts of the earth. 10 They will be given over to the power of the sword. They will be a portion for foxes.
11 But the king will rejoice in God. Everyone who swears by him will glory, because the mouth of those who speak lies will be stopped.

Psalms 64:1-150:6

1 Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint. Preserve my life from fear of the enemy. 2 Hide me from the secret counsel of evildoers, from the tumult of the workers of wickedness, 3 who have flashed their tongue like a sword and have aimed their arrows, even bitter words, 4 that they may shoot in secret places at a blameless man. Suddenly do they shoot at him and do not fear.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil purpose. They speak of laying snares secretly. They say, Who will see them?
6 They search out iniquities, saying, We have accomplished a diligent search. And the inward part of man and the heart are deep.
7 But God will shoot at them. They will suddenly be wounded with an arrow. 8 So they will be made to stumble, their own tongue being against them. All who see them will wag the head.
9 And all men will fear. And they will declare the work of God and will wisely consider of his doing. 10 A righteous man will be glad in Jehovah and will take refuge in him. And all the upright in heart will glory.

Psalms 65:1-150:6

1 Praise waits for you, O God, in Zion. And the vow will be performed to you. 2 O you who hear prayer, all flesh will come to you. 3 Iniquities prevail against me. As for our transgressions, you will forgive them.
4 The man is fortunate whom you choose and cause to approach, that he may dwell in your courts. We will be satisfied with the goodness of your house, your holy temple.
5 You will answer us in righteousness by awesome things, O God of our salvation, you who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth and of those who are from afar off upon the sea, 6 who by his strength sets firm the mountains, being girded about with might, 7 who stills the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves and the tumult of the peoples.
8 They who also dwell in the outermost parts are afraid at your signs. You make the risings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
9 You visit the earth and water it; you greatly enrich it. The river of God is full of water. You provide them grain because you have so prepared the earth. 10 You water its furrows abundantly. You settle the ridges of it. You make it soft with showers. You bless the springing of it.
11 You crown the year with your goodness and your paths drop fatness. 12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness and the hills are girded with joy. 13 The pastures are clothed with flocks. The valleys also are covered over with grain. They shout for joy; they also sing.

Psalms 66:1-150:6

1 Shout to God, all the earth. 2 Sing forth the glory of his name. Make his praise glorious. 3 Say to God, How awesome are your works! Through the greatness of your power your enemies will submit themselves to you.
4 All the earth will worship you and will sing to you. They will sing to your name. Selah.
5 Come and see the works of God, awesome in actions toward the sons of men. 6 He turned the sea into dry land. They went through the river on foot. We rejoiced in him there.
7 He rules by his might forever. His eyes observe the nations. Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
8 O bless our God, you* peoples and make the voice of his praise to be heard, 9 who holds our soul in life and does not allow our feet to slip. 10 Because you, O God, have proved us. You have tried us as silver is tried.
11 You brought us into the net. You laid a great burden upon our loins. 12 You caused men to ride over our heads. We went through fire and through water. But you brought us out into a wealthy place.
13 I will come into your house with burnt offerings. I will pay you my vows, 14 which my lips uttered and my mouth spoke, when I was in distress. 15 I will offer to you burnt offerings of fat ones, with the incense of rams. I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
16 Come and hear, all you* who fear God and I will declare what he has done for my soul. 17 I cried to him with my mouth and he was extolled with my tongue.
18 If I regard wickedness in my heart, the Lord will not hear. 19 But truly God has heard. He has attended to the voice of my prayer.
20 Kneel to God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor his loving kindness from me.

Psalms 67:1-150:6

1 God be merciful to us and bless us and cause his face to shine upon us (Selah), 2 that your way may be known upon earth, your salvation among all nations.
3 Let the peoples praise you, O God. Let all the peoples praise you. 4 O let the nations be glad and sing for joy. Because you will judge the peoples with equity and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.
5 Let the peoples praise you, O God. Let all the peoples praise you.
6 The earth has yielded its increase. God, even our own God, will bless us. 7 God will bless us and all the ends of the earth will fear him.

Psalms 68:1-150:6

1 Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered. Let also those who hate him flee before him. 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 God.
3 But let the righteous be glad. Let them rejoice before God. Yes, let them rejoice with gladness.
4 Sing to God, sing praises to his name. Lift up praise for him who rides through the deserts. His name is Jehovah and be rejoiced before him.
5 A father of the fatherless and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. 6 God sets the lonely in families. He brings out the prisoners into prosperity, but the rebellious dwell in a parched land.
7 O God, when you went forth before your people, when you marched through the wilderness (Selah) 8 the earth trembled, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God, Sinai at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
9 You, O God, sent a plentiful rain. You confirmed your inheritance when it was weary. 10 Your congregation dwelt in it. You, O God, prepared for the poor from your goodness.
11 The Lord gave the word. Great was the company of those who proclaimed it.
12 Kings of armies fled quickly and she who remained at home divided the spoil. 13 Though you* lie between two boundaries, it is as the wings of a dove covered with silver and her pinions with yellow gold. 14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was as it snows in Zalmon.
15 A mountain of God is the mountain of Bashan; a high mountain is the mountain of Bashan. 16 Why do you* look-enviously, you* high mountains, at the mountain which God has desired for his abode? Yes, Jehovah will dwell in it forever.
17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands upon thousands. The Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the sanctuary.
18 You have ascended on high. You have led captivity captive. You have received gifts among men, yes, among the rebellious also, that Jehovah God might dwell with them.
19 Praise the Lord, who bears our burden daily, even the God who is our salvation. Selah.
20 God is to us a God of deliverance and escape from death belongs to Jehovah the Lord. 21 But God will kill* through the head of his enemies, the hairy scalp of him who still goes in his guiltiness.
22 The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan. I will bring again from the depths of the sea, 23 that you may dash your foot in blood, that the tongue of your dogs may have its portion from enemies.
24 They have seen your traveling, O God, even the traveling of my God, my King, into the sanctuary. 25 The singers went before, the minstrels followed after, in the midst of the maidens playing with timbrels. 26 Praise God in the congregations, the lord of the fountain of Israel.
27 There is little Benjamin their ruler, the rulers of Judah and their council, the rulers of Zebulun, the rulers of Naphtali.
28 Your God has commanded your strength. Strengthen, O God, what you have worked for us. 29 Because of your temple at Jerusalem kings will bring presents to you.
30 Rebuke the wild beast of the reeds, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the peoples, trampling under foot the pieces of silver. He has scattered the peoples that delight in war.
31 Rulers will come out of Egypt. Ethiopia will hasten to stretch out her hands to God.
32 Sing to God, you* kingdoms of the earth. O sing praises to the Lord (Selah), 33 to him who rides upon the heaven of heavens, which are of long-ago. Behold, he utters his voice, a mighty voice.
34 Bestow strength to God. His excellency is over Israel and his strength is in the skies.
35 O God, awesome out of your holy places, the God of Israel, he gives strength and power to his people. Praise God.

Psalms 69:1-150:6

1 Save me, O God, because the waters have come in to my soul. 2 I sink in deep mud where there is no standing. I have come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
3 I am weary with my crying. My throat is dried. My eyes fail while I wait for my God.
4 Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head. Those who would cut me off, being my enemies wrongfully, are mighty. I have to restore what I did not take away.
5 O God, you know my foolishness and my sins are not hid from you. 6 Do not let those who wait for you, be put to shame through me, O lord Jehovah of hosts. Do not let those who seek you, be brought to dishonor through me, O God of Israel.
7 Because for your sake I have borne reproach, shame has covered my face. 8 I have become a stranger to my brothers and an alien to my mother's sons.
9 Because the zeal of your house has eaten me up and the reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen upon me.
10 When I wept in my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach. 11 When I made sackcloth my clothing, I became a parable to them. 12 Those who sit at the gate talk of me and I am the song of the drunkards.
13 But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Jehovah. Answer me in the truth of your salvation in an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your loving kindness,.
14 Deliver me out of the mud and do not let me sink. Let me be delivered from those who hate me and out of the deep waters. 15 Do not let the water flood overwhelm me, nor let the deep swallow me up. And do not let the pit shut its mouth upon me.
16 Answer me, O Jehovah, because your loving kindness is good. According to the multitude of your tender mercies turn to me, 17 and do not hide your face from your servant, because I am in distress. Answer me speedily. 18 Draw near to my soul and redeem it. Ransom me because of my enemies.
19 You know my reproach and my shame and my dishonor. My adversaries are all before you.

Psalms 34:12-18

12 What man is he who desires life and loves many days, that he may see good? 13 Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. 14 Depart from evil and do good. Seek peace and pursue it.
15 The eyes of Jehovah are toward the righteous and his ears are open to their prayer. 16 (The face of Jehovah is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.)
17 They cried and Jehovah heard and delivered them out of all their troubles. 18 Jehovah is near to those who are of a broken heart and saves such as are of a crushed spirit.

Psalms 69:20-150:6

20 Reproach has broken my heart and I am full of heaviness. And I looked for some to take pity, but there was none, and for comforters, but I found none. 21 They also gave me gall for my food and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
22 Let their table be a trap before them, and to those at peace, let it be a snare.
23 Let their eyes be darkened, so that they cannot see and bow down their back continually.
24 Pour out your indignation upon them and let the fierceness of your anger overtake them. 25 Let their habitation be desolate. Let none dwell in their tents.
26 Because they persecute he whom you have struck and they tell of the sorrow of those whom you have wounded. 27 Add iniquity to their iniquity and do not let them come into your righteousness.
28 Let them be blotted out of the book of life and not be written with the righteous.
29 But I am poor and sorrowful. Let your salvation, O God, set me up on high. 30 I will praise the name of God with a song and will extol him with thanksgiving, 31 and it will please Jehovah better than an ox, or a bullock that has horns and hoofs.
32 The meek have seen it and are glad. You* who seek after God, let your* heart live. 33 Because Jehovah hears the needy and does not despise his prisoners.
34 Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and everything that moves in it. 35 Because God will save Zion and build the cities of Judah. And they will abide there and have it in possession. 36 The seed also of his servants will inherit it and those who love his name will dwell in it.

Psalms 70:1-150:6

1 Hasten, O God, to deliver me. Make haste to help me, O Jehovah. 2 Let them be put to shame and confounded who seek after my soul. Let them be turned backward and brought to dishonor who delight in my hurt. 3 Let them be turned back because of their shame who say, Aha, aha.
4 Let all those who seek you rejoice and be glad in you. And let such as love your salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
5 But I am poor and needy. Make haste to me, O God. You are my help and my deliverer, O Jehovah. Do not delay.

Psalms 71:1-150:6

1 I take refuge in you, O Jehovah. Do not let me be put to shame everlasting. 2 Deliver me in your righteousness and rescue me. Bow down your ear to me and save me. 3 Be to me a rock of habitation to which I may continually resort. You have given commandment to save me, because you are my rock and my fortress.
4 Rescue me, O my God, out of the hand of a wicked man, out of the hand of an unrighteous and cruel man.
5 Because you are my hope, O lord Jehovah, my trust from my youth. 6 I have been held up by you from the womb. You are he who took me out of my mother's guts. My praise will be continually of you.
7 I am as a wonder to many, but you are my strong refuge. 8 My mouth will be filled with your praise and with your honor all the day.
9 Do not cast me off in the time of old age. Forsake me not when my strength fails.
10 Because my enemies speak concerning me and those who watch for my soul take counsel together, 11 saying, God has forsaken him. Pursue and take him, because there is none to deliver.
12 O God, do not be far from me. O my God, make haste to help me. 13 Let them be put to shame and be consumed who are adversaries to my soul. Let them be covered with reproach and dishonor who seek my hurt. 14 But I will hope continually and will praise you yet more and more. 15 My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all the day, because I do not know the numbers.
16 I will come with the mighty acts of the lord Jehovah. I will make mention of your righteousness, yours only!
17 O God, you have taught me from my youth and I have declared your wondrous works until now.
18 Yes, even when I am old and gray headed, O God, forsake me not, until I have declared your strength to a generation, your might to everyone who is to come.
19 Your righteousness also, O God, is very high, you who have done great things. O God, who is like you? 20 You, who have shown us many and great troubles, will revive us again and will bring us up again from the depths of the earth. 21 Increase my greatness and turn again and comfort me.
22 I will also praise you with the psaltery, even your truth, O my God. I will sing praises to you with the harp, O you Holy One of Israel. 23 My lips will shout for joy because I sing praises to you and my soul, which you have redeemed.
24 My tongue also will talk of your righteousness all the day long. Because they are put to shame, because they are confounded, who seek my hurt.

Psalms 72:1-150:6

1 Give the king your judgments, O God and your righteousness to the king's son. 2 He will judge your people with righteousness and your poor with justice.
3 The mountains will bring peace to the people and the hills, in righteousness. 4 He will judge the poor of the people.
He will save the sons of the needy and will break in pieces the oppressor. 5 They will fear you while the sun endures and as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
6 He will come down like rain upon the mowed grass, as showers that water the earth. 7 In his days righteousness will flourish and abundance of peace, till the moon is no more.
8 He will also have dominion from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.
9 Those who dwell in the wilderness will bow before him and his enemies will lick the dust.
10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles will render tribute. The kings of Sheba and Seba will offer gifts. 11 Yes, all kings will fall down before him. All nations will serve him.
12 Because he will deliver a needy man when he cries and a poor man, who has no helper. 13 He will have pity on a poor and needy man and he will save the souls of the needy.
14 He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence. And their blood will be precious in his sight, 15 and they will live. And to him will be given of the gold of Sheba. And men will pray for him continually. They will praise him all the day long.
16 There will be abundance of grain in the earth upon the top of the mountains. The fruit of it will shake like Lebanon. And they from the city will flourish like the grass of the earth.
17 His name will endure everlasting. His name will be continued as long as the sun. And men will call him fortunate. All nations will call him fortunate.
18 Praise Jehovah God, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous things. 19 And praise his glorious name everlasting. And let the whole earth be filled with his glory. Truly and Truly.
20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.

Psalms 73:1-150:6

1 Surely God is good to Israel, to such as are pure in heart. 2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone. My steps had nearly slipped.
3 Because I was envious of the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 4 Because there are no pains in their death, but their strength is firm.
5 They are not in trouble as other men, nor are they plagued like other men. 6 Therefore pride is as a chain around their neck. Violence covers them as a garment.
7 Their eyes stand out with fatness. They have more than heart could wish.
8 They scoff and utter oppression in wickedness. They speak loftily. 9 They have set their mouth in the heavens and their tongue walks through the earth.
10 Therefore his people return here and waters of a full cup are drained by them.
11 And they say, How does God know? And is there knowledge in the Most High?
12 Behold, these are the wicked and those who prosper of old. They have possessed wealth.
13 Surely in vain I have cleansed my heart and washed my hands in innocence, 14 I have been plagued for all the day long and rebukes every morning.
15 If I had said, I will speak thus, behold, I would have dealt treacherously with the generation of your sons.
16 When I thought how I might understand this, it was too painful for me, 17 until I went into the sanctuary of God and considered their latter end.
18 Surely you set them in slippery places. You cast them down to destruction. 19 How they have become a desolation in a moment! They are utterly consumed with terrors.
20 As a dream from awakening, O Lord, when you waken, you will despise their form.
21 Because my soul was grieved and I was pricked in my heart. 22 So I was stupid and ignorant. I was a beast before you.
23 Nevertheless I am continually with you. You have held my right hand. 24 You will guide me with your counsel and afterward receive me to glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides you. 26 My flesh and my heart fails, but God is the strength of my heart and my everlasting portion.
27 Because behold, those who are far from you will perish. You have destroyed all those who play the prostitute from you.
28 But it is good for me to draw near to God. I have made the lord Jehovah my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.

Psalms 74:1-150:6

1 O God, why have you cast off forever? Why does your anger smoke against the sheep of your pasture?
2 Remember your congregation, which you bought them of long-ago, which you have redeemed to be the tribe of your inheritance and Mount Zion, at which you have dwelt.
3 Lift up your feet to the perpetual ruins, all the evil that the enemy has done in the sanctuary. 4 Your adversaries have roared in the midst of your assembly. They have set up their ensigns for signs.
5 They seemed as men who lifted up axes upon a thicket of trees. 6 And now they break down all the carved work of it with hatchet and hammers.
7 They have set your sanctuary on fire. They have profaned the dwelling-place of your name to the ground. 8 They said in their heart, Let us make havoc of them altogether. They have burned up all the meeting-places of God in the land.
9 We do not see our signs. There is no more any prophet, nor any among us who knows how long. 10 How long, O God, will the adversary reproach? Shall the enemy blaspheme your name forever?
11 Why do you draw back your hand, even your right hand? Remove it from the midst of your bosom.
12 Yet God is my King of long-ago, working salvation in the midst of the earth. 13 You divided the sea by your strength.
You break the heads of the sea-monsters in the waters. 14 You break the heads of the leviathan in pieces. You gave him to be food to the people inhabiting the wilderness. 15 You split fountain and flood. You dried up mighty rivers.
16 The day is yours; the night is also yours. You have prepared the light and the sun. 17 You have set all the borders of the earth. You have made summer and winter.
18 Remember this, that the enemy has reproached, O Jehovah and that a foolish people has blasphemed your name.
19 O do not deliver the soul of your turtle-dove to the wild beast. Do not forget the life of your poor forever.
20 Have respect to the covenant, because the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of violence.
21 O do not let he who is oppressed return ashamed. Let a poor and needy man praise your name.
22 Arise, O God, plead your own cause. Remember how the foolish man reproaches you all the day.
23 Do not forget not the voice of your adversaries. The tumult of those who rise up against you ascends continually.

Psalms 75:1-150:6

1 We give thanks to you, O God. We give thanks, for your name is near. Men tell of your wondrous works.
2 When I will find the set time, I will judge in uprightness; 3 when the earth and all the inhabitants of it are dissolved. I have set up the pillars of it. Selah.
4 I said to the boastful, Do not boast and to the wicked, Do not lift up the horn. 5 Do not lift up your* horn on high. Do not speak arrogantly. 6 Because neither from the east, nor from the west, nor yet from the south, comes lifting up.
7 Because God is the judge. He put one down and lifts another up.
8 Because in the hand of Jehovah there is a cup and the wine foams. It is full of mixture and he pours out of the same, surely to the dregs of it. All the wicked of the earth will drain them and drink them. 9 But I will declare everlasting. I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 All the horns of the wicked I will also cut off, but the horns of a righteous man will be lifted up.

Psalms 76:1-150:6

1 God is known in Judah. His name is great in Israel. 2 His covering is in Salem also and his dwelling-place in Zion.
3 There he broke the arrows of the bow, the shield and the sword and the battle. Selah.
4 You are more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.
5 The stouthearted are made a spoil. They have slept their sleep and none of the men of might have found their hands. 6 At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both chariot and horse are cast into a deep sleep.
7 You, even you, are to be feared. And who may stand in your sight when once you are angry? 8 You caused sentence to be heard from heaven. The earth feared and was still 9 when God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.
10 Surely the inward thought of man will praise you, even the residue of inward thought will observe a festival to you.
11 Vow and pay to Jehovah your* God. Let all who are all around him bring presents to him who ought to be feared.
12 He will cut off the spirit of rulers. He is fearful to the kings of the earth.

Psalms 77:1-150:6

1 I will cry to God with my voice, even to God with my voice and he will listen to me.
2 I sought the Lord in the day of my trouble. My hand was stretched out in the night and did not slack. My soul refused to be comforted. 3 I remember God and I am in an uproar. I complain and my spirit is overwhelmed. Selah.
4 You have held my eyelids watching. I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5 I have considered the days of long-ago, the years of ancient times. 6 I call to remembrance my song in the night. I meditate with my own heart and my spirit makes diligent search.
7 Will the Lord cast off everlasting? And will he be favorable no more? 8 Has his loving kindness ceased forever? Does his promise come to an end in this generation? 9 Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he shut up his tender mercies in anger? Selah.
10 And I said, This is my infirmity, the change of the right hand of the Most High. 11 I will make mention of the deeds of Jehovah, because I will remember your wonders of long-ago. 12 I will meditate also upon all your work and talk on your deeds.
13 Your way, O God, is in the sanctuary. Who is a great god like God? 14 You are the God who does wonders. You have made known your strength among the peoples. 15 You have redeemed your people with your arm, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
16 The waters saw you, O God, the waters saw you. They were afraid. The depths also trembled. 17 The clouds poured out water. The skies sent out a sound. Your arrows also went abroad.
18 The voice of your thunder was in the whirlwind. The lightnings lightened the world. The earth trembled and shook.
19 Your way was in the sea and your paths in the great waters. And your footsteps were not known. 20 You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

Psalms 78:1-150:6

1 Listen, O my people, to my law. Incline your* ears to the words of my mouth. 2 I will open my mouth in parables. I will pour out dark sayings of long-ago, 3 which we have heard and known and our fathers have told us.
4 We will not hide them from their sons, telling to the generation to come the praises of Jehovah and his strength and his wondrous works that he has done.
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 sons, 6 that the generation to come might know, even the sons who should be born, who should arise and tell to their sons, 7 that they might set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments, 8 and might not be as their fathers: a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation that did not set their heart aright and whose spirit was not steadfast with God.
9 The sons of Ephraim, being armed and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.
10 They did not keep the covenant of God and refused to walk in his law. 11 And they forgot his deeds and his wondrous works that he had shown them.
12 He did marvelous things in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan. 13 He divided the sea and caused them to pass through. And he made the waters to stand as a heap.
14 He led them with a cloud in the daytime also and all the night with a light of fire. 15 He split rocks in the wilderness and gave them to drink abundantly as out of the depths.
16 He brought streams also out of the rock and caused waters to run down like rivers. 17 Yet they went on to still sin against him, to rebel against the Most High in the desert.
18 And they challenged God in their heart by asking food according to their desire. 19 Yes, they spoke against God. They said, Can God prepare a table in the wilderness?
20 Behold, he killed* the rock, so that waters gushed out and streams overflowed. Can he give bread also? Will he provide meat for his people?
21 Therefore Jehovah heard and was angry. And a fire was kindled against Jacob and anger also went up against Israel, 22 because they did not believe in God and did not trust in his salvation.
23 Yet he commanded the skies above and opened the doors of heaven, 24 and he rained down manna upon them to eat and gave them food from heaven.
25 Man ate the bread of the mighty. He sent them food to the full.
26 He caused the east wind to blow in the heavens and by his power he guided the south wind. 27 He also rained meat upon them as the dust and winged birds as the sand of the seas.
28 And he let it fall in the midst of their camp all around their habitations. 29 So they ate and were well filled and he gave them their own desire.
30 They were not estranged from what they desired. Their food was yet in their mouths 31 when the anger of God went up against them and killed of the fattest of them and killed* down the young men of Israel.
32 For all this, they still sinned and did not believe in his wondrous works. 33 Therefore he consumed their days in vanity and their years in terror.
34 When he killed them, then they inquired after him and they returned and sought God earnestly. 35 And they remembered that God was their rock and the Most High God their redeemer.
36 But they deceived him with their mouth and lied to him with their tongue. 37 For their heart was not right with him, nor were they faithful in his covenant.
38 But he, being merciful, forgave iniquity and did not destroy. Yes, he turned his anger away much and did not stir up all his wrath. 39 And he remembered that they were but flesh, a wind that passes away and does not come again.
40 How often they rebelled against him in the wilderness and grieved him in the desert! 41 And they turned again and challenged God and provoked the Holy One of Israel.
42 They did not remember his hand, nor the day when he redeemed them from the adversary, 43 how he set his signs in Egypt and his wonders in the field of Zoan, 44 and turned their rivers into blood and their streams, so that they could not drink.
45 He sent among them swarms of flies, which devoured them and frogs, which destroyed them. 46 He also gave their increase to the caterpillar and their labor to the locust.
47 He destroyed their vines with hail and their sycamore trees with frost. 48 He also gave over their cattle to the hail and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.
49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath and indignation and trouble, a discharge of messengers of evil.
50 He made a path for his anger. He spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence, 51 and killed* all the firstborn in Egypt, the chief of their strength in the tents of Ham.
52 But he led forth his own people like sheep and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.
53 And he led them safely, so that they did not fear, but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, to this mountain, which his right hand had gained. 55 He also drove out the nations before them and allotted them for an inheritance by line and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.
56 Yet they challenged and rebelled against the Most High God and did not keep his testimonies, 57 but turned back and dealt treacherously like their fathers. They were turned aside like a deceitful bow. 58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
59 When God heard, he was angry and greatly rejected Israel, 60 so that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among men, 61 and delivered their strength into captivity and their glory into the adversary's hand.
62 He also gave his people over to the sword and was angry with his inheritance. 63 Fire devoured their young men and their virgins had no marriage-song. 64 Their priests fell by the sword and their widows made no lamentation.
65 Then the Lord awoke as out of sleep, like a mighty man who shouts because of wine. 66 And he killed* his adversaries backward. He put them to a everlasting reproach. 67 Moreover he refused the tent of Joseph and chose not the tribe of Ephraim, 68 but chose the tribe of Judah, the Mount Zion which he loved. 69 And he built his sanctuary like the heights, like the earth which he has established everlasting.
70 He also chose David his servant and took him from the sheepfolds. 71 He brought him from following the ewe-lambs that have their young, to be the shepherd of Jacob his people and Israel his inheritance.
72 So he was their shepherd according to the integrity of his heart and guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.

Psalms 79:1-150:6

1 O God, the nations have come into your inheritance. They have defiled your holy temple. They have laid Jerusalem in heaps.
2 They have given the dead bodies of your servants to be food to the birds of the heavens, the flesh of your holy ones to the beasts of the earth. 3 They have shed their blood like water all around Jerusalem and there was none to bury them.
4 We have become a reproach to our neighbors, a scoffing and ridicule to those who are all around us.
5 How long, O Jehovah? Will you be angry forever? Shall your jealousy burn like fire?
6 Pour out your wrath upon the nations that do not know you and upon the kingdoms that do not call upon your name. 7 Because they have devoured Jacob and laid waste his habitation.
8 Do not remember against us the iniquities of our forefathers. Let your tender mercies speedily meet us, because we are brought very low. 9 Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of your name. And deliver us and forgive our sins, for your name's sake.
10 Why should the nations say, Where is their God? Let the avenging of the blood of your servants which is shed be known among the nations in our sight.
11 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before you. Preserve those who are appointed to death according to the greatness of your power, 12 and render to our neighbors sevenfold into their bosom their reproach with which they have reproached you, O Lord, 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 80:1-150:6

1 Listen, O Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock. You who sit above the cherubim, shine forth.
2 Stir up your might before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh and come to save us. 3 Turn us again, O God and cause your face to shine and we will be saved.
4 O Jehovah God of hosts, how long will you be angry against the prayer of your people? 5 You have fed them with the bread of tears and given them tears to drink in large measure.
6 You make us hatred to our neighbors and our enemies laugh among themselves.
7 Turn us again, O God of hosts and cause your face to shine and we will be saved.
8 You brought a vine out of Egypt. You drove out the nations and planted it. 9 You prepared a place before it and it took deep root and filled the land. 10 The mountains were covered with the shadow of it and the branches of it were like cedars of God. 11 It sent out its limbs to the sea and its offshoots to the River.
12 Why have you broken down its walls, so that all those who pass by the way pluck it? 13 The boar out of the wood ravages it and the wild beasts of the field feed on it.
14 Turn again, we beseech you, O God of hosts. Look down from heaven, and behold and visit this vine, 15 and the stock which your right hand planted and the branch that you made strong for yourself. 16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down. They perish at the rebuke of your countenance.
17 Let your hand be upon the man of your right hand, upon the son of man whom you made strong for yourself, 18 so we will not go back from you.
Revive you us and we will call upon your name. 19 Turn us again, O Jehovah God of hosts, cause your face to shine and we will be saved.

Psalms 81:1-150:6

1 Sing aloud to God our strength. Shout to the God of Jacob. 2 Raise a song and bring here the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
3 Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the full moon, on our feast-day. 4 Because it is a statute for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob.
5 He appointed it in Joseph for a testimony when he went out over the land of Egypt, where I heard a language that I did not know. 6 I removed his shoulder from the burden. His hands were freed from the basket.
7 You called in trouble and I delivered you. I answered you in the secret place of thunder. I proved you at the waters of Meribah. Selah.
8 Hear, O my people and I will testify to you, O Israel, if you would listen to me! 9 There will be no strange god in you, nor will you worship any foreign god.
10 I am Jehovah your God who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.
11 But my people listened not to my voice and Israel would have none of me. 12 So I let them go after the stubbornness of their heart, that they might walk in their own counsels.
13 O that my people would listen to me, that Israel would walk in my ways! 14 I would soon subdue their enemies and turn my hand against their adversaries. 15 (The haters of Jehovah pretend obedience to him, but their time is everlasting.)
16 He would feed them also with the finest of the wheat. And I would satisfy you with honey out of the rock.

Psalms 82:1-150:6

1 God stands in the congregation of God. He judges among the gods. 2 How long will you* judge unjustly and respect the persons of the wicked? Selah.
3 Judge the poor man and the orphan. Do justice to the afflicted and destitute man. 4 Rescue the poor and needy man. Deliver him from the hand of the wicked man.
5 They do not know, nor do they understand. They walk to and fro in darkness. All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 I said, You* are gods and all of you* sons of the Most High. 7 Nevertheless you* will die like men and fall like one of the rulers.
8 Arise, O God, judge the earth, because you will inherit all the nations.

Psalms 83:1-150:6

1 O God, do not keep your silence. Do not hold your peace and do not be still, O God. 2 Because behold, your enemies make a tumult and those who hate you have lifted up the head.
3 They take crafty counsel against your people and consult together against your hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
5 Because they have consulted together with one consent. They make a covenant against you: 6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagarites, 7 Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre, 8 Assyria also is joined with them; they have helped the sons of Lot. Selah.
9 Do to them as to Midian, as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon, 10 who perished at En-dor, who became as manure for the earth. 11 Make their ranking men like Oreb and Zeeb, yes, all their rulers like Zebah and Zalmunna, 12 who said, Let us take to ourselves in possession the habitations of God.
13 O my God, make them like the whirling dust, as stubble before the wind, 14 as the fire that burns the forest and as the flame that sets the mountains on fire. 15 So pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your storm.
16 Fill their faces with confusion, that they may seek your name, O Jehovah.
17 Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever. Yes, let them be confounded and perish, 18 that they may know that you alone, whose name is Jehovah, are the Most High over all the earth.

Psalms 84:1-150:6

1 How beloved are your tabernacles, O Jehovah of hosts! 2 My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of Jehovah. My heart and my flesh cry out to the living God.
3 Yes, the sparrow has found her a house and the swallow a nest for herself where she may lay her young, even your altars, O Jehovah of hosts, my King and my God.
4 Those who dwell in your house are fortunate. They will still be praising you. Selah.
5 The man whose strength is in you is fortunate, in whose heart are the highways to Zion. 6 Passing through the valley of weeping they make it a place of springs. Yes, the early rain covers it with blessings.
7 They go from strength to strength; each one of them appears before God in Zion.
8 O Jehovah God of hosts, hear my prayer. Listen, O God of Jacob. Selah.
9 Behold, O God our shield and look upon the face of your anointed. 10 Because a day in your courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 Because Jehovah God is a sun and a shield. Jehovah will give favor and glory. He will withhold no good thing from those who walk uprightly.
12 O Jehovah of hosts, blessed is the man who trusts in you.

Psalms 85:1-150:6

1 Jehovah, you have been favorable to your land. You have brought back the captivity of Jacob. 2 You have forgiven the iniquity of your people. You have covered all their sin. Selah.
3 You have taken away all your wrath. You have turned from the fierceness of your anger. 4 Turn us, O God of our salvation and cause your indignation toward us to cease. 5 Will you be angry with us everlasting? Will you prolong your anger to all generations? 6 Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?
7 Show us your loving kindness, O Jehovah and grant us your salvation.
8 I will hear what God, Jehovah, will speak, Because he will speak peace to his people and to his holy ones. But do not let them turn again to folly. 9 Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth are met together. Righteousness and peace have kissed each other. 11 Truth springs out of the earth and righteousness has looked down from heaven.
12 Yes, Jehovah will give what is good and our land will yield its increase. 13 Righteousness will go before him and will make his footsteps a path.

Psalms 86:1-150:6

1 Bow down your ear, O Jehovah, and answer me, because I am poor and needy. 2 Preserve my soul, because I am devout. O you my God, save your servant who trusts in you.
3 Be merciful to me, O Lord, because I cry all the day long to you. 4 Rejoice the soul of your servant, because, I lift up my soul to you, O Lord.
5 Because you, Lord, are good and ready to forgive and abundant in loving kindness to all those who call upon you.
6 Listen, O Jehovah, to my prayer and listen to the voice of my supplications. 7 I will call upon you in the day of my trouble, because you will answer me.
8 There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor like your works. 9 All nations whom you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord and they will glorify your name.
10 Because you are great and do wondrous things. You alone are God.
11 Teach me your way, O Jehovah, I will walk in your truth. Unite my heart to fear your name. 12 I will praise you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart and I will glorify your name everlasting.
13 Because great is your loving kindness toward me and you have delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.
14 O God, the proud have risen up against me and a company of violent men have sought after my soul and have not set you before them.
15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness and truth. 16 O turn to me and have mercy upon me. Give your strength to your servant and save the son of your handmaid.
17 Show me a sign for good, that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame, because you, Jehovah, have helped me and comforted me.

Psalms 87:1-150:6

1 His foundation is in the holy mountains. 2 Jehovah loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. 3 Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. Selah.
4 I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon as among those who know me. Behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia: This man was born there.
5 Yes, of Zion it will be said, this and that man was born in her and the Most High himself will establish her. 6 Jehovah will count when he writes up the peoples: This man was born there. Selah.
7 Those who sing as well as those who dance will say, All my fountains are in you.

Psalms 88:1-150:6

1 O Jehovah, the God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before you. 2 Let my prayer enter into your presence. Incline your ear to my cry.
3 Because my soul is full of troubles and my life draws near to Sheol. 4 I am reckoned with those who go down into the pit. I am as a man who has no help, 5 cast off among the dead, like the slain who lie in the grave, whom you remember no more and they are cut off from your hand.
6 You have laid me in the lowest pit, in dark places, in the depths. 7 Your wrath lays hard upon me and you have afflicted me with all your waves. Selah.
8 You have put my acquaintances far from me. You have made me an abomination to them. I am shut up and I cannot come forth.
9 My eye wastes away because of affliction. I have called daily upon you, O Jehovah, I have spread forth my hands to you.
10 Will you show wonders to the dead? Shall those who are deceased arise and praise you? Selah.
11 Shall your loving kindness be declared in the grave, or your faithfulness in destruction? 12 Shall your wonders be known in the dark and your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
13 But to you, O Jehovah, I have cried and in the morning my prayer will come before you. 14 Jehovah, why do you cast off my soul? Why do you hide your face from me? 15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up. While I suffer your terrors I am confounded. 16 Your fierce wrath has gone over me. Your terrors have cut me off.
17 They came all around me like water all the day long. They encompassed me around together. 18 You have put beloved and friend far from me and my acquaintances into darkness.

Psalms 89:1-150:6

1 I will sing of the loving kindness of Jehovah everlasting. I will make known your faithfulness to all generations with my mouth. 2 Because I have said, Mercy will be built up everlasting. Your faithfulness you will establish in the very heavens.
3 I have made a covenant with my chosen. I have sworn to David my servant: 4 Your seed I will establish everlasting and build up your throne to all generations. Selah.
5 And the heavens will praise your wonders, O Jehovah, your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones.
6 Because who in the clouds can be compared to Jehovah? Who among the sons of the mighty is like Jehovah, 7 a God very awesome in the council of the holy ones and to be feared above all those who are all around him?
8 O Jehovah God of hosts, who is a mighty one like you, O Jehovah? And your faithfulness is all around you.
9 You rule the pride of the sea. When the waves of it arise, you still them. 10 You have broken Rahab in pieces, as a wounded man. You have scattered your enemies with the arm of your strength.
11 The heavens are yours, the earth also is yours, the world and the fullness of it; you have founded them. 12 The north and the south, you have created them. Tabor and Hermon rejoice in your name.
13 You have a mighty arm. Strong is your hand and high is your right hand.
14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Loving kindness and truth go before your face.
15 The people who know the shout of you are fortunate. O Jehovah, they walk in the light of your countenance. 16 They rejoice all the day in your name and they are exalted in your righteousness.
17 Because you are the glory of their strength and in your favor our horn will be exalted. 18 Because our shield belongs to Jehovah and our king to the Holy One of Israel.
19 Then you spoke in a vision to your holy ones and said, I have laid help upon a mighty man. I have exalted a chosen man out of the people.
20 I have found David my servant. I have anointed him with my holy oil, 21 with whom my hand will be established. My arm also will strengthen him.
22 The enemy will not exact from him, nor the son of wickedness afflict him. 23 And I will beat down his adversaries before him and kill* those who hate him, 24 but my faithfulness and my loving kindness will be with him and in my name will his horn be exalted.
25 I will also set his hand on the sea and his right hand on the rivers.
26 He will cry to me, You are my Father, my God and the rock of my salvation. 27 I also will make him firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth.
28 I will keep my loving kindness for him everlasting. And my covenant will stand fast with him. 29 I will also make his seed to endure forever and his throne as the days of heaven.
30 If his sons forsake my law and do not walk in my ordinances, 31 if they break my statutes and do not keep my commandments, 32 then I will visit their transgression with the rod and their iniquity with stripes, 33 but my loving kindness I will not utterly take from him, nor allow my faithfulness to fail.
34 I will not break my covenant, nor alter the thing that has gone out of my lips.
35 I have sworn once by my holiness; I will not lie to David. 36 His seed will endure everlasting and his throne as the sun before me. 37 It will be established everlasting as the moon and as the faithful witness in the sky. Selah.
38 But you have cast off and rejected. You have been angry with your anointed. 39 You have spurned the covenant of your servant. You have profaned his crown to the ground. 40 You have broken down all his hedges. You have brought his strongholds to ruin.
41 All who pass by the way rob him. He has become a reproach to his neighbors. 42 You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries. You have made all his enemies to rejoice.
43 Yes, you turn back the edge of his sword and have not made him to stand in the battle.
44 You have made his brightness to cease and cast his throne down to the ground. 45 The days of his youth you have shortened. You have covered him with shame. Selah.
46 How long, O Jehovah? Will you hide yourself forever? Shall your wrath burn like fire? 47 O remember how short my time is, for what vanity you have created all the sons of men!
48 What man is he who will live and not see death, who will deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah.
49 Lord, where are your former loving kindnesses, which you swore to David in your faithfulness?
50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of your servants, how I bear in my bosom all the mighty peoples, 51 with which your enemies have reproached, O Jehovah, with which they have reproached the footsteps of your anointed.
52 Praise Jehovah everlasting. Truly and Truly.

Psalms 90:1-150:6

1 Lord, you have been our dwelling-place in all generations. 2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or you had ever formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, you are God.
3 You turn man to destruction and say, Return, you* the sons of men. 4 Because a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past and as a watch in the night.
5 You carry them away as with a flood. They are as a sleep. They are like grass which grows up in the morning. 6 In the morning it flourishes and grows up. In the evening it is cut down and withers.
7 Because we are consumed in your anger and in your wrath are we troubled. 8 You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your countenance.
9 Because all our days are passed away in your wrath. We bring our years to an end as a sigh.
10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten, or even by reason of strength eighty years, yet their pride is but labor and sorrow, because it is soon gone and we fly away.
11 Who knows the power of your anger and your wrath according to the fear that is due to you?
12 So teach us to number our days, that we may get us a heart of wisdom.
13 Return, O Jehovah. How long? And relent concerning your servants. 14 O satisfy us in the morning with your loving kindness, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad according to the days in which you have afflicted us and the years in which we have seen evil.
16 Let your work appear to your servants and your glory upon their sons. 17 And let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us. And establish the work of our hands upon us, yes, the work of our hands establish it.

Psalms 91:1-150:6

1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will abide under the shadow of the Almighty
2 I will say of Jehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust. 3 Because he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his pinions and under his wings will you take refuge. His truth is a shield and a buckler.
5 You will not be afraid for the terror by night, nor for the arrow that flies by day, 6 for the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday.
7 A thousand will fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 8 You will only behold with your eyes and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you, O Jehovah, are my refuge! You have made the Most High your habitation.
10 There will no evil befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent, 11 because he will give his messengers charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. 12 They will bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and adder. The young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.
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.
15 He will call upon me and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him and honor him. 16 I will satisfy him with long life and show him my salvation.

Psalms 92:1-150:6

1 It is a good thing to give thanks to Jehovah and to sing praises to your name, O Most High, 2 to show forth your loving kindness in the morning and your faithfulness every night, 3 with an instrument of ten strings and with the psaltery, with a meditation resounding upon the harp.
4 Because you, Jehovah, have made me glad through your work. I will triumph in the works of your hands.
5 How great are your works, O Jehovah! Your thoughts are very deep. 6 A stupid man does not know, nor does a fool understand this. 7 When the wicked spring up like the grass and when all the workers of unrighteousness flourish, it is that they will be destroyed forever, 8 but you, O Jehovah, are on high everlasting.
9 Because behold, your enemies, O Jehovah, for behold, your enemies will perish. All the workers of wickedness will be scattered.
10 But you have exalted my horn like the wild ox's. I am anointed with fresh oil, 11 and my eye has seen my enemies. My ears have heard of the evildoers who rise up against me.
12 A righteous man will flourish like the palm tree. He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 13 Men who are planted in the house of Jehovah will flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They will still bring forth fruit in old age. They will be full of sap and green 15 to show that Jehovah is upright. He is my rock and there is no unrighteousness in him.

Psalms 93:1-150:6

1 Jehovah reigns! He is clothed with majesty. Jehovah is clothed with strength; he has girded himself with it.
The world also is established that it cannot be shaken.
2 Your throne is established of old. You are from everlasting.
3 The floods have lifted up, O Jehovah, the floods have lifted up their voice, the floods lift up their waves. 4 Above the voices of many waters, the mighty breakers of the sea, Jehovah on high is mighty.
5 Your testimonies are very sure. Holiness is lovely to your house, O Jehovah, forever.

Psalms 94:1-150:6

1 O Jehovah, God of vengeance, O God of vengeance, shine forth. 2 Lift up yourself, judge of the earth. Render to the proud a recompense.
3 Jehovah, how long will the wicked, how long will the wicked triumph? 4 They pour out words, they speak arrogantly. All the workers of wickedness boast of themselves.
5 They break in pieces your people, O Jehovah and afflict your heritage. 6 They kill the widow and the traveler and murder the fatherless.
7 And they say, Jehovah will not see, nor will the God of Jacob consider.
8 Consider, you* the stupid among the people and you* fools, when will you* be wise? 9 He who planted the ear, will he not hear? He who formed the eye, will he not see?
10 He who disciplines the nations, will he not correct, even he who teaches man knowledge?
11 Jehovah knows the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
12 The man whom you discipline is fortunate, O Jehovah and teach out of your law, 13 that you may give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit is dug for a wicked man.
14 Because Jehovah will not cast off his people, nor will he forsake his inheritance. 15 Because judgment will return to righteousness and all the upright in heart will follow it.
16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of wickedness?
17 Unless Jehovah had been my help, my soul would have soon dwelt in silence. 18 When I said, My foot slips, your loving kindness, O Jehovah, held me up. 19 Your comforts delight my soul in the multitude of my thoughts within me.
20 Shall the throne of wickedness have fellowship with you, which frames mischief by statute? 21 They gather themselves together against the soul of a righteous man and condemn innocent blood.
22 But Jehovah has been my high tower and my God, the rock of my refuge.
23 And he has brought upon them their own wickedness and will cut them off in their own wickedness. Jehovah our God will cut them off.

Psalms 95:1-150:6

1 O come, let us sing to Jehovah. Let us shout to the rock of our salvation. 2 Let us come before his presence with thanks-giving. Let us shout to him with songs.
3 Because Jehovah is a great God and a great King above all gods. 4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth. The heights of the mountains are also his. 5 The sea is his and he made it. And his hands formed the dry land.
6 O come, let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before Jehovah our maker. 7 Because he is our God and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
Today, O that you* would hear his voice! 8 Harden not your* heart, as in the provocation, as the day of trial in the wilderness, 9 where your* fathers challenged me, proved me and saw my work.
10 Forty years long I was grieved with that generation and said, It is a people that do go-astray in their heart and they have not known my ways. 11 Therefore I swore in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.

Psalms 96:1-150:6

1 O sing to Jehovah a new song. Sing to Jehovah, all the earth. 2 Sing to Jehovah, bless his name. Show forth his salvation from day to day. 3 Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples.
4 Because great is Jehovah and greatly to be praised. He is to be feared above all gods. 5 Because all the gods of the peoples are idols, but Jehovah made the heavens. 6 Honor and majesty are before him. Strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7 Give to Jehovah, you* kindred of the peoples. Give to Jehovah glory and strength. 8 Give to Jehovah the glory due to his name. Bring an offering and come into his courts. 9 O worship Jehovah in holy array. Tremble before him, all the earth.
10 Say among the nations, Jehovah reigns! The world also is established that it cannot be shaken. He will judge the peoples with uprightness.
11 Let the heavens be glad and let the earth rejoice. Let the sea roar and the fullness of it. 12 Let the field rejoice and all that is in it. Then all the trees of the wood will sing for joy 13 before Jehovah, because he comes. Because he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness and the peoples with his truth.

Psalms 97:1-150:6

1 Jehovah reigns! Let the earth rejoice. Let the multitude of isles be glad. 2 Clouds and darkness are all around him. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 A fire goes before him and burns up his adversaries all around. 4 His lightnings lightened the world. The earth saw and trembled. 5 The mountains melted like wax at the presence of Jehovah, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6 The heavens declare his righteousness and all the peoples have seen his glory.
7 Let all those be put to shame who serve graven images, who boast themselves of idols. Bow yourselves to him, all you* gods.
8 Zion heard and was glad and the daughters of Judah rejoiced, because of your judgments, O Jehovah. 9 Because you, Jehovah, are most high above all the earth. You are exalted far above all gods.
10 O you* who love Jehovah, hate evil.
He preserves the souls of his holy ones. He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.
11 Light is sown for the righteous man and gladness for the upright in heart.
12 Be glad in Jehovah, you* righteous and give thanks to the memory of his holiness.

Psalms 98:1-150:6

1 O sing to Jehovah a new song, because he has done marvelous things. His right hand and his holy arm, has worked salvation for him. 2 Jehovah has made known his salvation. He has openly shown his righteousness in the sight of the nations.
3 He has remembered his loving kindness and his faithfulness toward the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4 Shout to Jehovah, all the earth. Break forth and sing for joy, yes, sing praises.
5 Sing praises to Jehovah with the harp. With the harp and the voice of melody, 6 with trumpets and sound of cornet, shout before the King Jehovah.
7 Let the sea roar and the fullness of it, the world and those who dwell in it. 8 Let the floods clap their hands. Let the hills sing for joy together 9 before Jehovah, because he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness and the peoples with uprightness.

Psalms 99:1-150:6

1 Jehovah reigns! Let the peoples tremble. He sits above the cherubim, let the earth be moved. 2 Jehovah is great in Zion and he is high above all the peoples.
3 Let them praise your great and awesome name. Holy is he.
4 The king’s strength also loves justice. You establish uprightness. You execute justice and righteousness in Jacob.
5 Exalt Jehovah our God and worship at his footstool. Holy is he.
6 Moses and Aaron among his priests and Samuel among those who call upon his name, they called upon Jehovah and he answered them.
7 He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud. They kept his testimonies and the statute that he gave them.
8 You answered them, O Jehovah our God. You were a God who forgave them, though you took vengeance on their practices.
9 Exalt Jehovah our God and worship at his holy hill. Because Jehovah our God is holy.

Psalms 100:1-150:6

1 Shout to Jehovah, all you* lands. 2 Serve Jehovah with gladness. Come before his presence with singing.
3 Know that Jehovah, he is God. It is he who has made us and we are his. We are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and bless his name. 5 Because Jehovah is good. His loving kindness is everlasting and his faithfulness to all generations.

Psalms 101:1-150:6

1 I will sing of loving kindness and justice. To you, O Jehovah, I will sing praises. 2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when will you come to me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
3 I will set no wicked speech before my eyes. I hate the work of those who turn aside. It will not cleave to me. 4 A perverse heart will depart from me. I will know no evil thing.
5 He who slanders his neighbor secretly, I will destroy him. He who has a high look and a proud heart I will not endure.
6 My eyes will be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me. He who walks in a perfect way, he will minister to me.
7 He who works deceit will not dwell within my house. He who speaks falsehood will not be established before my eyes.
8 Morning by morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land, to cut off all the workers of wickedness from the city of Jehovah.

Psalms 102:1-150:6

1 Hear my prayer, O Jehovah and let my cry come to you. 2 Do not hide your face from me in the day of my distress. Incline your ear to me. Answer me speedily in the day when I call.
3 Because my days consume away like smoke and my bones are burned as a firebrand. 4 My heart is struck like grass and withered, because I forget to eat my bread. 5 Because of the voice of my groaning my bones cling to my flesh.
6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness. I have become as an owl of the waste places. 7 I watch and have become like a sparrow that is alone upon the house-top.
8 My enemies reproach me all the day. Those who are mad against me curse by me. 9 Because I have eaten ashes like bread and mingled my drink with weeping, 10 because of your indignation and your wrath. Because you have taken me up and cast me away.
11 My days are like a shadow that declines and I am withered like grass.
12 But you, O Jehovah, will abide everlasting and your memorial to all generations. 13 You will arise and have mercy upon Zion, because it is time to have pity upon her, yes, the set time has come. 14 Because your servants take pleasure in her stones and have pity upon her dust.
15 So the nations will fear the name of Jehovah and all the kings of the earth your glory. 16 Because Jehovah has built up Zion. He has appeared in his glory.
17 He has regarded the prayer of the destitute and has not despised their prayer.
18 This will be written for the generation to come. And a people which will be created will praise Jehovah.
19 Because he has looked down from the height of his sanctuary. From heaven Jehovah beheld the earth, 20 to hear the sighing of the prisoner, to loose those who are appointed to death, 21 that men may declare the name of Jehovah in Zion and his praise in Jerusalem, 22 when the peoples are gathered together and the kingdoms to serve Jehovah.
23 He weakened my strength in the way. He shortened my days. 24 I said, O my God, do not take me away in the midst of my days. Your years are throughout all generations.
25 You laid of old the foundation of the earth and the heavens are the work of your hands. 26 They will perish, but you will endure. Yes, all of them will grow old like a garment. As a raiment you will change them and they will be changed, 27 but you are the same and your years will have no end.
28 The sons of your servants will continue and their seed will be established before you.

Psalms 103:1-150:6

1 Praise Jehovah, O my soul and all that is within me, praise his holy name.
2 Praise Jehovah, O my soul and do not forget all his benefits, 3 who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, 5 who satisfies your desire with good things and your youth is renewed like the eagle.
6 Jehovah executes righteous acts and judgments for all who are oppressed. 7 He made known his ways to Moses, his practices to the sons of Israel. 8 Jehovah is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness.
9 He will not always contend, nor will he keep it everlasting. 10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 Because as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his loving kindness toward those who fear him. 12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13 Like as a father pities his sons, So Jehovah pities those who fear him. 14 Because he knows our frame. He remembers that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are as grass, as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. 16 Because the wind passes over it and it has gone and the place of it will know it no more.
17 But the loving kindness of Jehovah is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him and his righteousness to son's sons, 18 to such as keep his covenant and to those who remember his precepts to do them.
19 Jehovah has established his throne in the heavens and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Praise Jehovah, you* his messengers, who are mighty in strength, who fulfill his word, listening to the voice of his word.
21 Praise Jehovah, all you* his hosts, you* ministers of his, who do his pleasure. 22 Praise Jehovah, all you* his works in all places of his dominion.
Praise Jehovah, O my soul.

Psalms 104:1-150:6

1 Praise Jehovah, O my soul.
O Jehovah my God, you are very great. You are clothed with honor and majesty, 2 who covers yourself with light as with a garment, who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, 3 who lays the beams of his chambers in the waters, who makes the clouds his chariot, who walks upon the wings of the wind, 4 who makes his messengers spirits, his ministers a flame of fire, 5 who laid the foundations of the earth that it should not be shaken everlasting and forever.
6 You covered it with the deep as with a raiment. The waters stood above the mountains. 7 At your rebuke they fled. At the voice of your thunder they hastened away.
8 The mountains rose, the valleys sank down to the place which you had founded for them. 9 You have set a bound that they may not pass over, that they do not turn again to cover the earth.
10 He sends forth springs into the valleys. They run among the mountains. 11 They give drink to every beast of the field. The wild donkeys quench their thirst.
12 The birds of the heavens have their habitation by them. They sing among the branches. 13 He waters the mountains from his chambers. The earth is filled with the fruit of your works.
14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle and herbage for the service of man, that he may bring forth food out of the earth, 15 and wine that gladdens the heart of man and oil to make his face to shine and bread that strengthens man's heart.
16 The trees of Jehovah are full, the cedars of Lebanon, which he has planted, 17 where the birds make their nests. As for the stork, the fir trees are her house. 18 The high mountains are for the wild goats. The rocks are a refuge for the rock-baggers.
19 He appointed the moon for seasons. The sun knows his going down. 20 You make darkness and it is night, during which all the beasts of the forest creep forth.
21 The young lions roar after their prey and seek their food from God. 22 The sun arises; they get away and lie down in their dens.
23 Man goes forth to his work and to his labor until the evening.
24 O Jehovah, how great are your works! You have made them all in wisdom. The earth is full of your riches.
25 Yonder is the sea, great and wide, in which are innumerable creeping things, both small and great beasts. 26 There go the ships. There is leviathan, whom you have formed to play in it.
27 These all wait for you, that you may give them their food in due season. 28 You give to them, they gather. You open your hand, they are satisfied with good.
29 You hide your face, they are troubled. You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust.
30 You send forth your Spirit, they are created and you renew the face of the ground.
31 Let the glory of Jehovah endure everlasting. Let Jehovah rejoice in his works, 32 who looks on the earth and it trembles. He touches the mountains and they smoke.
33 I will sing to Jehovah as long as I live. I will sing praise to my God while I have any being. 34 Let your meditation be sweet to him. I will rejoice in Jehovah.
35 Let sinners be consumed out of the earth and let the wicked be no more.
Praise Jehovah, O my soul. Praise Jehovah.

Psalms 105:1-150:6

1 O give thanks to Jehovah, call upon his name. Make known among the peoples his practices. 2 Sing to him, sing praises to him. Talk of all his marvelous works.
3 Glory in his holy name. Let the heart of those who seek Jehovah rejoice. 4 Seek Jehovah and his strength. Seek his face continually. 5 Remember his marvelous works that he has done, his wonders and the judgments of his mouth, 6 O you* seed of Abraham his servant, you* sons of Jacob, his chosen. 7 He is Jehovah our God. His judgments are in all the earth.
8 He has remembered his covenant everlasting, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations, 9 which he made with Abraham and his oath to Isaac, 10 and confirmed the same to Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant, 11 saying, To you I will give the land of Canaan, the lot of your* inheritance, 12 when they were but a few men in number, yes, very few and travelers in it.
13 And they went about from nation to nation, From one kingdom to another people. 14 He allowed no man to do them wrong. Yes, he reproved kings for their sakes, 15 saying, Touch not my anointed men and do my prophets no harm.
16 And he called for a famine upon the land. He broke the whole staff of bread. 17 He sent a man before them. Joseph was sold for a servant.
18 They hurt his feet with fetters. He was placed in iron. 19 Until the time that his word happened, the word of Jehovah tried him.
20 The king sent and released him, even the ruler of peoples and let him go free. 21 He made him lord of his house and ruler of all his substance, 22 to bind his rulers at his pleasure and teach his elders wisdom.
23 Israel also came into Egypt and Jacob traveled in the land of Ham.
24 And he increased his people greatly and made them stronger than their adversaries. 25 He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal craftily with his servants.
26 He sent Moses his servant and Aaron whom he had chosen. 27 They set among them his signs and wonders in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness and made it dark. And they rebelled against his words.
29 He turned their waters into blood and killed their fish. 30 Their land swarmed with frogs in the chambers of their kings.
31 He spoke and there came swarms of flies and lice in all their borders.
32 He gave them hail for rain and flaming fire in their land. 33 He also killed* their vines and their fig trees and broke the trees of their borders.
34 He spoke and the locust came and the grasshopper and that without number, 35 and ate up every herb in their land and ate up the fruit of their ground. 36 He also killed* all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.
37 And he brought them forth with silver and gold and there was not a feeble soul among his tribes. 38 Egypt was glad when they departed, because the fear of them had fallen upon them.
39 He spread a cloud for a covering and fire to give light in the night. 40 They asked and he brought quails and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
41 He opened the rock and waters gushed out. They ran in the dry places like a river.
42 Because he remembered his holy word and Abraham his servant. 43 And he brought out his people with joy and his chosen with singing.
44 And he gave them the lands of the nations and they took the labor of the peoples in possession, 45 that they might keep his statutes and observe his laws. Praise Jehovah.

Psalms 106:1-150:6

1 Praise Jehovah. O give thanks to Jehovah, because he is good, because his loving kindness is everlasting. 2 Who can utter the mighty acts of Jehovah, or show forth all his praise?
3 Those who keep justice are fortunate and he who does righteousness at all times.
4 Remember me, O Jehovah, with the favor that you bear to your people. O visit me with your salvation, 5 that I may see the prosperity of your chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation, that I may glory with your inheritance.
6 We have sinned with our fathers. We have committed iniquity. We have done wickedly.
7 Our fathers did not understand your wonders in Egypt. They did not remember the multitude of your loving kindnesses, but were rebellious at the sea, even at the Red Sea.
8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.
9 He also rebuked the Red Sea and it was dried up. So he led them through the depths as through a wilderness. 10 And he saved them from the hand of him who hated them and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
11 And the waters covered their adversaries; there was not one of them left. 12 Then they believed his words. They sang his praise.
13 They soon forgot his works. They did not wait for his counsel, 14 but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness and challenged God in the desert. 15 And he gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul.
16 They also envied Moses in the camp and Aaron the holy ones of Jehovah. 17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan and covered the company of Abiram.
18 And a fire was kindled in their company. The flame burned up the wicked men.
19 They made a calf in Horeb and worshiped a molten image. 20 Thus they changed their glory for the likeness of an ox that eats grass.
21 They forgot God their Savior, who had done great things in Egypt, 22 wondrous works in the land of Ham and fearful things by the Red Sea.
23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy.
24 Yes, they despised the desirable land. They did not believe his word, 25 but murmured in their tents and did not listen to the voice of Jehovah.
26 Therefore he swore to them, that he would overthrow them in the wilderness, 27 and that he would overthrow their seed among the nations and scatter them in the lands.
28 They also joined themselves to Baal of Peor and ate the sacrifices of the dead. 29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their practices and the plague broke in upon them.
30 Then Phinehas stood up and executed judgment and so the plague was restrained. 31 And that was reckoned to him for righteousness to generation and generation until everlasting.
32 They also angered him at the waters of Meribah, so that it went ill with Moses because of them, 33 because they were rebellious against his spirit and he spoke ill-advisedly with his lips.
34 They did not destroy the peoples, as Jehovah commanded them, 35 but mingled themselves with the nations and learned their works, 36 and served their idols, which became a snare to them.
37 Yes, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons, 38 and shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan. And the land was polluted with blood.
39 Thus they were defiled with their works and played the prostitute in their practices.
40 Therefore the wrath of Jehovah was kindled against his people and he detested his inheritance. 41 And he gave them into the hand of the nations. And those who hated them, ruled over them. 42 Their enemies also oppressed them and they were brought into subjection under their hand.
43 Many times he delivered them, but they were rebellious in their counsel and were brought low in their iniquity.
44 Nevertheless he regarded their distress when he heard their cry. 45 And he remembered his covenant for them and relented according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses. 46 He also made them to be pitied by all those who carried them captive.
47 Save us, O Jehovah our God and gather us from among the nations, to give thanks to your holy name and to triumph in your praise.
48 Praise Jehovah, the God of Israel, from everlasting even to everlasting. And let all the people say, Truly. Praise Jehovah.

Psalms 107:1-150:6

1 O give thanks to Jehovah. Because he is good, because his loving kindness is everlasting. 2 Let the redeemed of Jehovah say so, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the adversary, 3 and gathered out of the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.
4 They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way. They found no city of habitation. 5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
6 Then they cried to Jehovah in their trouble and he delivered them out of their distresses. 7 He also led them by a straight way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
8 O that men would praise Jehovah for his loving kindness and for his wonderful works to the sons of men!
9 Because he satisfies the longing soul and he fills the hungry soul with good, 10 even those who sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron, 11 because they rebelled against the words of God and scorned the counsel of the Most High.
12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labor. They fell down and there was none to help.
13 Then they cried to Jehovah in their trouble and he saved them out of their distresses. 14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death and broke their bonds apart.
15 O that men would praise Jehovah for his loving kindness and for his wonderful works to the sons of men!
16 Because he has broken the gates of brass and cut the bars of iron apart. 17 Fools are afflicted because of their transgression and because of their iniquities. 18 Their soul abhors all manner of food and they draw near to the gates of death.
19 Then they cry to Jehovah in their trouble and he saves them out of their distresses. 20 He sends his word and heals them and delivers them from their destructions.
21 O that men would praise Jehovah for his loving kindness and for his wonderful works to the sons of men! 22 And let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving and declare his works with singing.
23 Those who go down to the sea in ships, who do business in great waters, 24 these men see the works of Jehovah and his wonders in the deep.
25 For he commands and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up the waves of it. 26 They mountain up to the heavens, they go down again to the depths. Their soul melts away because of trouble. 27 They reel to and fro and stagger like a drunken man and are at their wits' end.
28 Then they cry to Jehovah in their trouble and he brings them out of their distresses. 29 He makes the storm a calm, so that the waves of it are still. 30 Then they are glad because they are quiet, so he brings them to their desired haven.
31 O that men would praise Jehovah for his loving kindness and for his wonderful works to the sons of men! 32 Let them also exalt him in the assembly of the people and praise him in the seat of the elders.
33 He turns rivers into a wilderness and water springs into a thirsty ground, 34 a fruitful land into a salt desert, for the wickedness of those who dwell in it.
35 He turns a wilderness into a pool of water and a dry land into water springs. 36 And there he makes the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city of habitation, 37 and sow fields and plant vineyards and get fruits of increase.
38 He also graces them, so that they are multiplied greatly and he does not allow their cattle to decrease.
39 Again, they are diminished and bowed down through oppression, trouble and sorrow. 40 He pours contempt upon rulers and makes them to wander in the waste, where there is no way.
41 Yet he sets a needy man on high from affliction and makes him families like a flock. 42 The upright will see it and be glad. And all unrighteousness will stop her mouth.
43 He who is wise will give heed to these things and they will consider the loving kindnesses of Jehovah.

Psalms 108:1-150:6

1 My heart is fixed, O God, I will sing, yes, I will sing praises, even with my glory. 2 Awake, psaltery and harp. I myself will awaken the dawn.
3 I will give thanks to you, O Jehovah, among the peoples and I will sing praises to you among the nations.
4 Because your loving kindness is great above the heavens and your truth is to the skies.
5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens and your glory above all the earth. 6 That your beloved may be delivered, save with your right hand and answer us.
7 God has spoken in his holiness. I will rejoice. I will divide Shechem and measure out the valley of Succoth. 8 Gilead is mine. Manasseh is mine. Ephraim also is the defense of my head. Judah is my scepter.
9 Moab is my wash pot. I will cast my shoe upon Edom. I will shout over Philistia.
10 Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who has led me to Edom? 11 Have you not cast us off, O God? And you do not go forth, O God, with our armies. 12 Give us help against the adversary, for vain is the help of man.
13 Through God we will do valiantly, for he it is who will tread down our adversaries.

Psalms 109:1-150:6

1 Do not hold your peace, O God of my praise, 2 because they have opened against me the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit. They have spoken to me with a lying tongue. 3 They have also encompassed me about with words of hatred and fought against me without a cause.
4 They are my adversaries instead of my love, but I make prayer. 5 And they have rewarded me evil for good and hatred for my love.
6 Set a wicked man over him and let an adversary stand at his right hand. 7 When he is judged, let him come out guilty and let his prayer be turned into sin. 8 Let his days be few and let another take his office.
9 Let his sons be fatherless and his wife a widow. 10 Let his sons be vagabonds and beg and let them seek out of their desolate places. 11 Let a creditor exact all that he has and let strangers make spoil of his labor.
12 Let there be none to prolong kindness to him, nor let there be any to have pity on his fatherless sons. 13 Let his posterity be cut off. Let their name be blotted out in the following generation.
14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with Jehovah and do not let the sin of his mother be blotted out.
15 Let them be before Jehovah continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth, 16 because he did not remember to show kindness, but persecuted the poor and needy man and the broken in heart, to kill.
17 Yes, he loved cursing and it came to him. And he did not delight in blessing and it was far from him.
18 He also clothed himself with cursing as with his garment and it came into his inward parts like water and like oil into his bones. 19 Let it be to him as the garments with which he covers himself and for the belt with which he is girded continually.
20 This is the reward of my adversaries from Jehovah and of those who speak evil against my soul.
21 But deal with me, O Jehovah the Lord, for your name's sake. Because your loving kindness is good, deliver me, 22 because I am poor and needy and my heart is wounded within me.
23 I have gone like the shadow when it declines. I am tossed up and down as the locust. 24 My knees are weak through fasting and my flesh fails of fatness.
25 I also have become a reproach to them. When they see me, they shake their head.
26 Help me, O Jehovah my God. O save me according to your loving kindness, 27 that they may know that this is your hand, that you, Jehovah, have done it.
28 Let them curse, but you bless. When they arise, they will be put to shame, but your servant will rejoice.
29 Let my adversaries be clothed with dishonor and let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe.
30 I will give great thanks to Jehovah with my mouth. Yes, I will praise him among the multitude. 31 Because he will stand at the right hand of the needy, to save him from those who judge his soul.

Psalms 110:1-150:6

1 Jehovah says to my Lord, Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool. 2 Jehovah will send forth the rod of your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of your enemies. 3 Your people offer themselves willingly in the day of your power, in holy array. Out of the womb of the morning you have the dew of your youth.
4 Jehovah has sworn and will not repent. You are a everlasting priest after the order of Melchizedek.
5 The Lord at your right hand will strike through kings in the day of his wrath. 6 He will judge among the nations. He will fill with dead bodies. He will strike through the head in many countries. 7 He will drink of the brook in the way, therefore he will lift up the head.

Psalms 111:1-150:6

1 Praise Jehovah. I will give thanks to Jehovah with my whole heart, in the council of the upright and in the congregation.
2 The works of Jehovah are great, sought out by all those who have pleasure in it.
3 His work is honor and majesty and his righteousness endures everlasting.
4 He has made his wonderful works to be remembered. Jehovah is gracious and merciful.
5 He has given food to those who fear him. He will ever be mindful of his everlasting covenant.
6 He has shown his people the power of his works, in giving them the heritage of the nations.
7 The works of his hands are truth and justice. All his precepts are sure. 8 They are established everlasting and forever. They are done in truth and uprightness.
9 He has sent redemption to his people. He has commanded his everlasting covenant. Holy and reverend is his name.
10 The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom and all who act accordingly have a good understanding.
His praise endures forever.

Psalms 112:1-150:6

1 Praise Jehovah. The man is fortunate who fears Jehovah, who delights greatly in his commandments. 2 His seed will be mighty upon earth. The generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches are in his house and his righteousness endures forever. 4 To the upright there arises light in the darkness. He is gracious and merciful and righteous.
5 It is well with the man who deals graciously and lends. He will maintain his cause in judgment, 6 because he will never be moved. The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance.
7 He will not be afraid of evil news. His heart is fixed, trusting in Jehovah. 8 His heart is established, he will not be afraid, even until he looks over his adversaries.
9 He has scattered, he has given to the poor. His righteousness endures forever. His horn will be exalted with honor.
10 A wicked man will see it and be grieved. He will gnash with his teeth and melt away. The desire of wicked men will perish.

Psalms 113:1-150:6

1 Praise Jehovah. Praise him, O you* servants of Jehovah. Praise the name of Jehovah. 2 Praised is the name of Jehovah from this time forth and everlasting. 3 From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same Jehovah's name is to be praised.
4 Jehovah is high above all nations and his glory above the heavens. 5 Who is like Jehovah our God who has his seat on high, 6 and yet looks upon the low things in heaven and in the earth.
7 He raises up a poor man out of the dust and lifts up a needy man from the dunghill, 8 that he may set him with rulers, even with the rulers of his people. 9 He makes the barren woman to keep house, a joyful mother of sons.
Praise Jehovah.

Psalms 114:1-150:6

1 When Israel went forth out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language, 2 Judah became his sanctuary, Israel his dominion.
3 The sea saw it and fled. The Jordan was driven back. 4 The mountains skipped like rams, the little hills like lambs.
5 What is it to you, O you the sea, that you flee? You Jordan, that you turn back? 6 You* mountains, that you* skip like rams, you* little hills, like lambs?
7 Tremble, you earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, 8 who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

Psalms 115:1-150:6

1 Not to us, O Jehovah, not to us, but to your name give glory. Upon your loving kindness and upon your truth's sake.
2 Why should the nations say, Where is their God now? 3 But our God is in the heavens. He has done whatever he pleased.
4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. 5 They have mouths, but they do not speak. They have eyes, but they do not see. 6 They have ears, but they do not hear. They have noses, but they do not smell. 7 They have hands, but they do not handle. They have feet, but they do not walk, nor do they speak through their throat.
8 Those who make them will be like them. Yes, everyone who trusts in them.
9 O Israel, trust in Jehovah. He is their help and their shield. 10 O house of Aaron, trust in Jehovah. He is their help and their shield. 11 You* who fear Jehovah, trust in Jehovah. He is their help and their shield.
12 Jehovah has been mindful of us. He will bless, he will bless the house of Israel. He will bless the house of Aaron.
13 He will bless those who fear Jehovah, both small and great. 14 Jehovah increase you* more and more, you* and your* sons.
15 Blessed are you* of Jehovah who made heaven and earth.
16 The heavens are the heavens of Jehovah, but the earth he has given to the sons of men.
17 The dead do not praise Jehovah, nor any who go down into silence, 18 but we will praise Jehovah from this time forth and everlasting.
Praise Jehovah.

Psalms 116:1-150:6

1 I love Jehovah because he hears my voice and my supplications. 2 Because he has inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call as long as I live.
3 The cords of death encompassed me and the pains of Sheol found me. I found trouble and sorrow. 4 Then I called upon the name of Jehovah. O Jehovah, I beseech you, deliver my soul.
5 Gracious is Jehovah and righteous. Yes, our God is merciful. 6 Jehovah preserves the simple. I was brought low and he saved me.
7 Return to your rest, O my soul, because Jehovah has dealt bountifully with you. 8 Because you have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from falling.
9 I will walk before Jehovah in the land of the living.
10 I believed, because I have spoken, but I was greatly afflicted. 11 I said in my haste, All men are liars.
12 What shall I render to Jehovah for all his benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation and call upon the name of Jehovah. 14 I will pay my vows to Jehovah, yes, in the presence of all his people.
15 Precious in the sight of Jehovah is the death of his holy ones. 16 O Jehovah, truly I am your servant. I am your servant, the son of your handmaid. You have loosed my bonds.
17 I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving and will call upon the name of Jehovah. 18 I will pay my vows to Jehovah, yes, in the presence of all his people, 19 in the courts of Jehovah's house, in the midst of you, O Jerusalem.
Praise Jehovah.

Psalms 117:1-150:6

1 O praise Jehovah, all you* Gentiles, laud him, all you* peoples.
2 Because his loving kindness is great toward us and the truth of Jehovah is everlasting.
Praise Jehovah.

Psalms 118:1-150:6

1 O give thanks to Jehovah, because he is good, because his loving kindness is everlasting.
2 Let Israel now say that his loving kindness is everlasting.
3 Let the house of Aaron now say that his loving kindness is everlasting.
4 Let those now who fear Jehovah say that his loving kindness is everlasting.
5 I called upon Jehovah out of my distress. Jehovah answered me upon a large place. 6 Jehovah is on my side, I will not fear. What can man do to me? 7 Jehovah is on my side among those who help me. Therefore I will look upon those who hate me.
8 It is better to take refuge in Jehovah than to put confidence in man. 9 It is better to take refuge in Jehovah than to put confidence in rulers.
10 All nations encompassed me around. I will cut them off in the name of Jehovah. 11 They encompassed me around, yes, they encompassed me around. I will cut them off in the name of Jehovah. 12 They encompassed me around like bees. They are quenched as the fire of thorns. I will cut them off in the name of Jehovah.
13 You thrust greatly at me that I might fall, but Jehovah helped me.
14 Jehovah is my strength and song and he has become my salvation. 15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous.
The right hand of Jehovah does valiantly. 16 The right hand of Jehovah is exalted. The right hand of Jehovah does valiantly.
17 I will not die, but live and declare the works of Jehovah. 18 Jehovah has disciplined me greatly, but he has not given me over to death.
19 Open to me the gates of righteousness. I will enter into them. I will give thanks to Jehovah. 20 This is the gate of Jehovah. The righteous will enter into it. 21 I will give thanks to you, because you have answered me and have become my salvation.
22 The stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner. 23 This is from Jehovah. It is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day which Jehovah has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save now, we beseech you, O Jehovah. O Jehovah, we beseech you, send now prosperity.
26 He who comes in the name of Jehovah is blessed. We have blessed you* out of the house of Jehovah.
27 Jehovah is God and he has given us light. Bind the sacrifice with cords, even to the horns of the altar. 28 You are my God and I will give thanks to you. You are my God, I will exalt you.
29 O give thanks to Jehovah, because he is good, because his loving kindness is everlasting.

Psalms 119:1-150:6

1 Those who are perfect in the way, who walk in the law of Jehovah are fortunate. 2 Those who keep his testimonies, that seek him with the whole heart are fortunate. 3 Yes, they do no unrighteousness. They walk in his ways. 4 You have commanded your precepts, that we should observe them diligently.
5 O that my ways were established to observe your statutes! 6 Then I will not be put to shame when I have respect for all your commandments. 7 I will give thanks to you with uprightness of heart when I learn your righteous judgments. 8 I will observe your statutes. O forsake me not utterly.
9 With what will a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to your word. 10 I have sought you with my whole heart. O do not let me wander from your commandments. 11 I have laid your word up in my heart that I might not sin against you.
12 Praise you, O Jehovah. Teach me your statutes. 13 I have declared all the ordinances of your mouth with my lips. 14 I have rejoiced in the way of your testimonies as much as in all riches. 15 I will meditate on your precepts and have respect for your ways. 16 I will delight myself in your statutes. I will not forget your word.
17 Deal bountifully with your servant that I may live, so I will observe your word. 18 Open my eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of your law. 19 I am a traveler in the earth. Do not hide your commandments from me. 20 My soul breaks for the longing that it has to your ordinances at all times. 21 You have rebuked the proud, who are cursed, who wander from your commandments.
22 Take away from me reproach and contempt, because I have kept your testimonies. 23 Rulers also sat and talked against me, but your servant meditated on your statutes.
24 Your testimonies also are my delight and my counselors. 25 My soul clings to the dust. Give me life according to your word. 26 I declared my ways and you answered me. Teach me your statutes. 27 Make me to understand the way of your precepts, so I will meditate on your wondrous works.
28 My soul melts for heaviness. Strengthen me according to your word. 29 Remove from me the way of falsehood and grant me your law graciously.
30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness. I have set your ordinances. 31 I cling to your testimonies. O Jehovah, put me not to shame. 32 I will run the way of your commandments because you will enlarge my heart.
33 Teach me, O Jehovah, the way of your statutes and I will keep it to the end. 34 Give me understanding and I will keep your law, yes, I will observe it with my whole heart. 35 Make me to go in the path of your commandments, because I do delight in it. 36 Incline my heart to your testimonies and not to covetousness.
37 Turn away my eyes from beholding vanity and give me life in your ways. 38 Confirm to your servant your word, which is for the fear of you. 39 Turn away my reproach of which I am afraid, because your ordinances are good. 40 Behold, I have longed after your precepts. Give me life in your righteousness.
41 Let your loving kindnesses also come to me, O Jehovah, even your salvation, according to your word. 42 So I will have an answer for him who reproaches me, because I trust in your word.
43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, because I have hoped in your ordinances. 44 So shall I observe your law continually everlasting and forever. 45 And I will walk at liberty, because I have sought your precepts.
46 I also will speak of your testimonies before kings and will not be put to shame. 47 And I will delight myself in your commandments, which I have loved. 48 I will also lift up my hands to your commandments, which I have loved and I will meditate on your statutes.
49 Remember the word to your servant, because you have made me to hope. 50 This is my comfort in my affliction, because your word has revived me.
51 The proud scoff at me greatly, yet I have not swerved from your law. 52 I have remembered your everlasting ordinances, O Jehovah and have comforted myself. 53 Hot indignation has taken hold upon me because of the wicked who forsake your law.
54 Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage. 55 I have remembered your name, O Jehovah, in the night and have observed your law. 56 I have had this because I have kept your precepts.
57 Jehovah is my portion; I have said that I would observe your words. 58 I entreated your favor with my whole heart. Be merciful to me according to your word. 59 I thought on my ways and turned my feet to your testimonies. 60 I made haste and delayed not, to observe your commandments.
61 The cords of the wicked have wrapped me around, but I have not forgotten your law.
62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks to you because of your righteous ordinances. 63 I am a companion of all those who fear you and of those who observe your precepts.
64 The earth, O Jehovah, is full of your loving kindness. Teach me your statutes. 65 You have dealt well with your servant, O Jehovah, according to your word.
66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge, because I have believed in your commandments.
67 Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I observe your word. 68 You are good and do good. Teach me your statutes.
69 The proud have forged a lie against me. I will keep your precepts with my whole heart. 70 Their heart is like fat like grease, but I delight in your law.
71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn your statutes. 72 The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver.
73 Your hands have made me and fashioned me. Give me understanding that I may learn your commandments. 74 Those who fear you will see me and be glad, because I have hoped in your word. 75 I know, O Jehovah, that your judgments are righteous and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me.
76 I beseech you, let your loving kindness be for my comfort according to your word to your servant. 77 Let your tender mercies come to me that I may live, because your law is my delight.
78 Let the proud be put to shame, because they have overthrown me wrongfully.
I will meditate on your precepts. 79 Let those who fear you turn to me and they will know your testimonies. 80 Let my heart be perfect in your statutes that I am not put to shame. 81 My soul faints for your salvation. I hope in your word. 82 My eyes fail for your word, while I say, When will you comfort me? 83 Because I have become like a wine-skin in the smoke. Yet I do not forget your statutes.
84 How many are the days of your servant? When will you execute judgment on those who persecute me? 85 The proud have dug pits for me, who are not according to your law. 86 All your commandments are faithful. They persecute me wrongfully. Help me. 87 They had almost consumed me upon earth, but I did not forsake your precepts. 88 Revive me according to your loving kindness, so I will observe the testimony of your mouth.
89 Everlasting, O Jehovah, your word is settled in heaven. 90 Your faithfulness is to all generations. You have established the earth and it abides. 91 They abide this day according to your ordinances, because all things are your servants.
92 Unless your law had been my delight, I should then have perished in my affliction. 93 I will never forget your precepts, because you have given me life with them. 94 I am yours. Save me, because I have sought your precepts. 95 The wicked have waited for me, to destroy me. I will consider your testimonies.
96 I have seen an end of all perfection. Your commandment is exceedingly broad. 97 O how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.
98 Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, because they are everlasting with me. 99 I have more understanding than all my teachers, because your testimonies are my meditation. 100 I understand more than the aged because I have kept your precepts.
101 I have restrained my feet from every evil way, that I might observe your word. 102 I have not turned aside from your ordinances, because you have taught me.
103 How sweet are your words to my taste, than honey to my mouth! 104 Through your precepts I get understanding. Therefore I hate every false way.
105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and light to my path. 106 I have sworn and have confirmed it, that I will observe your righteous ordinances.
107 I am afflicted very much. Revive me, O Jehovah, according to your word. 108 I beseech you, accept the free-will offerings of my mouth, O Jehovah and teach me your ordinances. 109 My soul is continually in my hand, yet I do not forget your law. 110 The wicked have laid a snare for me, yet I have not gone-astray from your precepts.
111 I have taken your testimonies as a heritage everlasting, because they are the rejoicing of my heart.
112 I have inclined my heart to perform your everlasting statutes, even to the end.
113 I hate those who are of a double mind, but I love your law. 114 You are my hiding place and my shield. I hope in your word. 115 Depart from me, you* evildoers, that I may keep the commandments of my God.
116 Uphold me according to your word, that I may live and do not let me be ashamed of my hope. 117 Hold me up and I will be safe and will have respect for your statutes continually.
118 You have tossed-aside all those who go astray from your statutes, because their deceit is falsehood. 119 You put away all the wicked of the earth like dross. Therefore I love your testimonies.
120 My flesh trembles for fear of you and I am afraid of your judgments. 121 I have done justice and righteousness. Do not leave me to my oppressors. 122 Be a surety for your servant for good. Do not let the proud oppress me. 123 My eyes fail for your salvation and for your righteous word.
124 Deal with your servant according to your loving kindness and teach me your statutes. 125 I am your servant. Give me understanding, that I may know your testimonies.
126 It is time for Jehovah to work. They have made void your law. 127 Therefore I love your commandments above gold, yes, above fine gold. 128 Therefore I esteem all precepts concerning all things to be right. I hate every false way.
129 Your testimonies are wonderful, therefore my soul keeps them. 130 The opening of your words gives light. It gives understanding to the simple. 131 I opened wide my mouth and panted, because I longed for your commandments.
132 Turn to me and have mercy upon me, as you used to do to those who love your name. 133 Establish my footsteps in your word and do not let any wickedness have dominion over me.
134 Redeem me from the oppression of man, so I will observe your precepts.
135 Make your face to shine upon your servant and teach me your statutes. 136 Streams of water run down my eyes, because they do not observe your law.
137 You are righteous, O Jehovah and upright are your judgments. 138 You have commanded your testimonies in righteousness and exceeding faithfulness.
139 My zeal has consumed me, because my adversaries have forgotten your words. 140 Your word is very pure, therefore your servant loves it. 141 I am small and despised. I do not forget your precepts. 142 Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness and your law is truth. 143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me. Your commandments are my delight.
144 Your testimonies are everlasting righteous. Give me understanding and I will live. 145 I have called with my whole heart. Answer me, O Jehovah. I will keep your statutes. 146 I have called to you. Save me and I will observe your testimonies.
147 I anticipated the dawning of the morning and cried. I hoped in your words. 148 My eyes anticipated the night-watches that I might meditate on your word.
149 Hear my voice according to your loving kindness. Give me life, O Jehovah, according to your ordinances.
150 They draw near who follow after wickedness. They are far from your law.
151 You are near, O Jehovah and all your commandments are truth. 152 Of long-ago I have known from your testimonies because you have founded them everlasting.
153 Consider my affliction and deliver me, because I do not forget your law. 154 Plead my cause and redeem me. Give me life according to your word.
155 Salvation is far from the wicked, because they do not seek your statutes.
156 Great are your tender mercies, O Jehovah. Give me life according to your ordinances.
157 Many are my persecutors and my adversaries. I have not swerved from your testimonies. 158 I beheld the treacherous and was grieved because they do not observe your word.
159 Consider when I love your precepts. Give me life, O Jehovah, according to your loving kindness.
160 The sum of your word is truth and every one of your righteous ordinances is everlasting.
161 Rulers have persecuted me without a cause, but my heart stands in awe of your words.
162 I rejoice at your word, as he who finds great spoil. 163 I hate and abhor falsehood. I love your law.
164 Seven times a day I praise you because of your righteous ordinances.
165 Those who love your law have great peace and they have no occasion of stumbling. 166 I have hoped for your salvation, O Jehovah and have done your commandments. 167 My soul has observed your testimonies and I love them exceedingly. 168 I have observed your precepts and your testimonies, because all my ways are before you.
169 Let my cry come near before you, O Jehovah. Give me understanding according to your word. 170 Let my supplication come before you. Deliver me according to your word. 171 Let my lips pour out praise, because you teach me your statutes. 172 Let my tongue sing of your word, because all your commandments are righteousness. 173 Let your hand be ready to help me, because I have chosen your precepts.
174 I have longed for your salvation, O Jehovah and your law is my delight. 175 Let my soul live and it will praise you. And let your ordinances help me. 176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep. Seek your servant, because I do not forget your commandments.

Psalms 120:1-150:6

1 I cried to Jehovah in my distress and he answered me. 2 Deliver my soul, O Jehovah, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.
3 What will be given to you and what will be done more to you, you deceitful tongue? 4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.
5 Woe is me, that I journey in Meshech, that I dwell among the tents of Kedar! 6 My soul has long had her dwelling with him who hates peace. 7 I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war.

Psalms 121:1-150:6

1 I will lift up my eyes to the mountains. From where will my help come? 2 My help is from Jehovah, who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not allow your foot to slip. He who keeps you will not slumber. 4 Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 Jehovah is your keeper. Jehovah is your shade upon your right hand. 6 The sun will not kill* you by day, nor the moon by night. 7 Jehovah will keep you from all evil. He will keep your soul.
8 Jehovah will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and everlasting.

Psalms 122:1-150:6

1 I was glad when they said to me, Let us go to the house of Jehovah.
2 Our feet are standing inside your gates, O Jerusalem. 3 Jerusalem, that is built as a city that is compact together, 4 where the tribes go up, even the tribes of Jehovah, for an ordinance for Israel, to give thanks to the name of Jehovah. 5 Because there thrones are set for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. They will prosper who love you. 7 Peace be within your walls and prosperity within your palaces.
8 For my brothers and companions' sakes I will now say, Peace be within you. 9 For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God I will seek your good.

Psalms 123:1-150:6

1 I lift up my eyes to you, O you who sit in the heavens. 2 Behold, as the eyes of servants to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes are to Jehovah our God, until he has mercy upon us.
3 Have mercy upon us, O Jehovah, have mercy upon us, because we are exceedingly filled with contempt. 4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scoffing of those who are at ease and with the contempt of the proud.

Psalms 124:1-150:6

1 If it had not been Jehovah who was on our side, let Israel now say, 2 if it had not been Jehovah who was on our side when men rose up against us, 3 then they would have swallowed us up alive when their wrath was kindled against us, 4 then the waters would have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul, 5 then the proud waters would have gone over our soul.
6 Praise Jehovah, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth. 7 Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers. The snare is broken and we have escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of Jehovah, who made heaven and earth.

Psalms 125:1-150:6

1 Those who trust in Jehovah are as Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken, but abides everlasting. 2 As the mountains are all around Jerusalem, so Jehovah is all around his people from this time forth and until forever.
3 Because the scepter of wickedness will not rest upon the lot of the righteous, that the righteous not put forth their hands to wickedness.
4 Do good, O Jehovah, to those who are good and to those who are upright in their hearts.
5 But as for such as turn aside to their crooked ways, Jehovah will lead them forth with the workers of wickedness.
Peace be upon Israel.

Psalms 126:1-150:6

1 When Jehovah brought back those who returned to Zion, we were like those who dream.
2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter and our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, Jehovah has done great things for them. 3 Jehovah has done great things for us. We are glad.
4 Turn again our captivity, O Jehovah, as the streams in the South. 5 Those who sow in tears will reap in joy. 6 He who goes forth and weeps, bearing seed for sowing, will doubtless come again with joy, bringing his sheaves.

Psalms 127:1-150:6

1 Unless Jehovah builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. Unless Jehovah guards the city, the watchman wake but in vain.
2 It is vain for you* to rise up early, to take rest late, to eat the bread of toil, for so he gives sleep to his beloved.
3 Behold, sons are a heritage of Jehovah and the fruit of the womb is a reward. 4 As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the sons of youth.
5 The man who has his quiver full of them is fortunate. They will not be put to shame because they speak with their enemies in the gate.

Psalms 128:1-150:6

1 All who fear Jehovah are fortunate, who walk in his ways. 2 Because you will eat the labor of your hands. You will be fortunate and it will be well with you. 3 Your wife will be as a fruitful vine in the innermost parts of your house, your sons like olive plants all around your table.
4 Behold, because the man will be blessed thus who fears Jehovah. 5 Jehovah bless you out of Zion and see you the good of Jerusalem all the days of your life. 6 Yes, see you your son's sons.
Peace be upon Israel.

Psalms 129:1-150:6

1 Many a time they have afflicted me from my youth up. Let Israel now say, 2 Many a time they have afflicted me from my youth up, yet they have not prevailed against me. 3 The plowers plowed upon my back. They made long their furrows.
4 Jehovah is righteous. He has cut apart the cords of the wicked.
5 Let them be put to shame and turned backward, all those who hate Zion. 6 Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withers before it grows up, 7 with which the reaper fills not his hand, nor he who binds sheaves, his bosom. 8 Neither do those who go by say, The blessing of Jehovah be upon you*. We praise you in the name of Jehovah.

Psalms 130:1-150:6

1 Out of the depths I have cried to you, O Jehovah. 2 Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
3 If you, Jehovah, should note iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? 4 But there is forgiveness with you, that you may be feared.
5 I wait for Jehovah. My soul waits and I hope in his word, 6 my soul for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, watchmen for the morning.
7 O Israel, hope in Jehovah, because there is loving kindness with Jehovah and plentiful redemption is with him. 8 And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

Psalms 131:1-150:6

1 Jehovah, my heart is not haughty, nor my eyes lofty; nor have I walked in grand things, or in things too wonderful for me.
2 Surely I have stilled and quieted my soul like a weaned child with his mother. Like a weaned child is my soul within me.
3 O Israel, hope in Jehovah from this time forth and everlasting.

Psalms 132:1-150:6

1 Jehovah, remember for David all his affliction, 2 how he swore to Jehovah and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob: 3 Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed, 4 I will not give sleep to my eyes, or slumber to my eyelids, 5 until I find out a place for Jehovah, a tabernacle for the Mighty One of Jacob.
6 Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah. We found it in the field of the wood. 7 We will go into his tabernacles. We will worship at his footstool.
8 Arise, O Jehovah, into your resting-place, you and the ark of your strength. 9 Let your priest be clothed with righteousness and let your holy ones shout for joy. 10 For your servant David's sake do not turn away the face of your anointed.
11 Jehovah has sworn to David in truth. He will not turn from it: From the fruit of your body I will set upon your throne. 12 If your sons will keep my covenant and my testimony that I will teach them, their sons also will sit upon your throne forever.
13 Because Jehovah has chosen Zion. He has desired it for his habitation. 14 This is my resting place forever. I will dwell here, for I have desired it. 15 I will abundantly bless her provision. I will satisfy her poor with bread. 16 I will also clothe her priests with salvation and her holy ones will shout aloud for joy.
17 I will make the horn of David to bud there. I have made ready a lamp for my anointed. 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but upon himself his crown will flourish.

Psalms 133:1-150:6

1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!
2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard, that came down upon the skirt of his garments, 3 like the dew of Hermon, that comes down upon the mountains of Zion. Because there Jehovah commanded the blessing, even life everlasting.

Psalms 134:1-150:6

1 Behold, praise Jehovah, all you* servants of Jehovah, who stand by night in the house of Jehovah. 2 Lift up your* hands to the sanctuary and praise Jehovah. 3 Jehovah bless you out of Zion, even he who made heaven and earth.

Psalms 135:1-150:6

1 Praise Jehovah. Praise the name of Jehovah. Praise, O you* servants of Jehovah, 2 you* who stand in the house of Jehovah, in the courts of the house of our God. 3 Praise Jehovah, because Jehovah is good. Sing praises to his name, for it is pleasant. 4 Because Jehovah has chosen Jacob to himself, Israel for his own possession.
5 Because I know that Jehovah is great and that our Lord is above all gods.
6 Whatever Jehovah pleased, that he has done, in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all depths, 7 who causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth, who makes lightnings for the rain, who brings forth the wind out of his treasuries, 8 who killed* the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast, 9 who sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh and upon all his servants, 10 who killed* many nations and killed mighty kings– 11 Sihon king of the Amorites and Og king of Bashan and all the kingdoms of Canaan– 12 and gave their land for a heritage, a heritage to Israel his people.
13 Your name, O Jehovah, is everlasting, your memorial, O Jehovah, throughout all generations. 14 Because Jehovah will judge his people and will relent concerning his servants.
15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
16 They have mouths, but they do not speak. They have eyes, but they do not see. 17 They have ears, but they do not hear, nor is there any breath in their mouths.
18 Those who make them will be like them, yes, everyone who trusts in them. 19 O house of Israel, praise Jehovah. O house of Aaron, praise Jehovah. 20 O house of Levi, praise Jehovah. You* who fear Jehovah, praise Jehovah. 21 Praise Jehovah out of Zion, who dwells at Jerusalem.
Praise Jehovah.

Psalms 136:1-150:6

1 O give thanks to Jehovah, because he is good, because his loving kindness is everlasting.
2 O give thanks to the God of gods, for his loving kindness is everlasting.
3 O give thanks to the Lord of lords, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
4 to him who alone does great wonders, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
5 to him who by understanding made the heavens, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
6 to him who spread forth the earth above the waters, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
7 to him who made great lights, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
8 the sun to rule by day, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
9 the moon and stars to rule by night, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
10 to him who killed* Egypt in their firstborn, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
11 and brought out Israel from among them, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
12 with a strong hand and with an outstretched arm, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
13 to him who divided the Red Sea apart, because loving kindness is everlasting,
14 and made Israel to pass through the midst of it, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
15 but overthrew Pharaoh and his army in the Red Sea, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
16 to him who led his people through the wilderness, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
17 to him who killed* great kings, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
18 and killed famous kings, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
19 Sihon king of the Amorites, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
20 and Og king of Bashan, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
21 and gave their land for a heritage, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
22 even a heritage to Israel his servant, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
23 who remembered us in our low estate, for his loving kindness is everlasting,
24 and has delivered us from our adversaries, because his loving kindness is everlasting,
25 who gives food to all flesh, because his loving kindness is everlasting.
26 O give thanks to the God of heaven, because his loving kindness is everlasting.

Psalms 137:1-150:6

1 We sat down there by the rivers of Babylon, yes, we wept when we remembered Zion. 2 We hung up our harps upon the willows in the midst of it.
3 Because those who led us captive there required of us songs and those who wasted us, gladness, saying, Sing for us one of the songs of Zion.
4 How will we sing Jehovah's song in a foreign land?
5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget. 6 Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth, if I do not remember you, if I do not prefer Jerusalem above my chief joy.
7 Remember, O Jehovah, the day of Jerusalem against the sons of Edom, who said, Raze it, raze it, even to the foundation of it.
8 O daughter of Babylon, who is to be destroyed, he will be fortunate who rewards you as you have served us. 9 He will be fortunate who takes and smashes your little ones against the rock.

Psalms 138:1-150:6

1 I will give you thanks with my whole heart. I will sing praises to you before the gods. 2 I will worship toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name because your loving kindness and for your truth. Because you have magnified your word above all your name.
3 You answered me in the day that I called. You encouraged me with strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth will give you thanks, O Jehovah, because they have heard the words of your mouth. 5 Yes, they will sing of the ways of Jehovah, because great is the glory of Jehovah.
6 Because Jehovah is high, yet he has respect to the lowly. But he knows the haughty from afar.
7 Because I walk in the midst of trouble, you will give me life. You will stretch forth your hand against the wrath of my enemies and your right hand will save me. 8 Jehovah will perfect what is on my behalf. Your loving kindness, O Jehovah, is everlasting. Do not forsake the works of your own hands.

Psalms 139:1-150:6

1 O Jehovah, you have searched and known me. 2 You know my sitting down and my rising up. You understand my thought afar off. 3 You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways.
4 Because there is not a word in my tongue, but behold, O Jehovah, you know it altogether. 5 You have beset me behind and before and laid your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me. It is high, I cannot attain to it.
7 Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, you are there. If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, you are there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the outermost parts of the sea, 10 your hand will lead me even there and your right hand will hold me.
11 If I say, Surely the darkness will overwhelm me and the light around me will be night, 12 even the darkness does not hide from you, but the night shines as the day. The darkness and the light are both alike to you.
13 Because you formed my inward parts. You covered me in my mother's womb.
14 I will give thanks to you, because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works and that my soul knows right well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was made in secret, curiously worked in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance and in your book they were all written, even the days that were formed, when as yet there was none of them.
17 How precious also are your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! 18 I count them; they are more in number than the sand. When I awake, I am still with you.
19 Surely you will kill the wicked, O God. Depart from me therefore, you* bloodthirsty men. 20 For they speak against you wickedly and your enemies take it in vain.
21 Do I not hate them, O Jehovah, who hate you? And am I not grieved with those who rise up against you? 22 I hate them with perfect hatred. They have become my enemies.
23 Search me, O God and know my heart. Try me and know my thoughts, 24 and see if there is any wicked way in me. And lead me in the way everlasting.

Psalms 140:1-150:6

1 Deliver me, O Jehovah, from the evil man. Preserve me from the violent man, 2 and men who devise mischievous things in their heart. They gather themselves continually together for war. 3 They have sharpened their tongue like a serpent. Adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.
4 Keep me, O Jehovah, from the hands of a wicked man. Preserve me from violent men, who have purposed to thrust aside my steps. 5 The proud have hid a snare for me and cords. They have spread a net by the wayside. They have set snares for me. Selah.
6 I said to Jehovah, You are my God. Listen to the voice of my supplications, O Jehovah.
7 O Jehovah the Lord, the strength of my salvation, you have covered my head in the day of battle.
8 Do not grant, O Jehovah, the desires of the wicked man. Do not further his evil device. They exalt themselves. Selah.
9 As for the head of those who encompass me around, let the mischief of their own lips cover them. 10 Let burning coals shake down upon them. Let them be cast into the fire, into deep pits, from where they will not rise.
11 An evil speaker will not be established in the earth. Evil will hunt the violent man to overthrow him.
12 I know that Jehovah will maintain the cause of the afflicted man and justice for the needy. 13 Surely the righteous will give thanks to your name. The upright will dwell in your presence.

Psalms 141:1-150:6

1 Jehovah, I have called upon you. Make haste to me. Listen to my voice when I call to you. 2 Let my prayer be set forth as incense before you, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
3 Set a watch, O Jehovah, before my mouth. Keep the door of my lips. 4 Do not incline my heart to any evil thing, to practice deeds of wickedness with men who work wickedness. And do not let me eat of their dainties.
5 Let a righteous man kill* me, as a kindness. And let him reprove me, as oil upon the head. Do not let my head refuse it. Because my prayer will continue even in their wickedness.
6 Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock. And they will hear my words, because they are sweet. 7 Like plowing and furrowing the earth, our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol. 8 Because my eyes are to you, O Jehovah the Lord. I take refuge in you. Do not leave my soul destitute.
9 Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me and from the traps of the workers of wickedness. 10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass over.

Psalms 142:1-150:6

1 I cry with my voice to Jehovah. I make supplication with my voice to Jehovah. 2 I pour out my complaint before him. I show my trouble before him.
3 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, you knew my path. In the way in which I walk they have hidden a snare for me.
4 Look on my right hand and see, for there is no man who knows me. Refuge has failed me. No man cares for my soul.
5 I cried to you, O Jehovah. I said, You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.
6 Attend to my cry, because I am brought very low. Deliver me from my persecutors, because they are stronger than I.
7 Bring my soul out of prison that I may give thanks to your name. The righteous will encompass me around, because you will deal bountifully with me.

Psalms 143:1-150:6

1 Hear my prayer, O Jehovah. Listen to my supplications. Answer me in your faithfulness and in your righteousness. 2 And do not enter into judgment with your servant. Because in your sight no man living is righteous.
3 Because the enemy has persecuted my soul. He has struck my life down to the ground. He has made me to dwell in dark places as those who have been long dead. 4 Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me. My heart within me is desolate.
5 I remember the days of long-ago. I meditate on all your practices. I meditate on the work of your hands. 6 I spread forth my hands to you. My soul is as a weary land for you. Selah.
7 Make haste to answer me, O Jehovah, my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me, lest I become like those who go down into the pit.
8 Cause me to hear your loving kindness in the morning, because I trust in you. Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, because I lift up my soul to you.
9 Deliver me, O Jehovah, from my enemies. I flee to you to hide me.
10 Teach me to do your will, because you are my God. Your Spirit is good, lead me in the land of uprightness.
11 Revive me, O Jehovah, for your name's sake. Bring my soul out of trouble in your righteousness.
12 And in your loving kindness cut off my enemies and destroy all those who afflict my soul, because I am your servant.

Psalms 144:1-150:6

1 Praise Jehovah, my rock, who teaches my hands to war and my fingers to fight, 2 my loving kindness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I take refuge, who subdues my people under me.
3 Jehovah, what is man, that you take knowledge of him? Or the son of man, that you make account of him? 4 Man is like vanity. His days are as a shadow that passes away.
5 Bow your heavens, O Jehovah and come down. Touch the mountains and they will smoke. 6 Cast forth lightning and scatter them. Send out your arrows and confuse them.
7 Stretch forth your hand from above. Rescue me and deliver me out of great waters, out of the hand of aliens, 8 whose mouth speaks deceit and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
9 I will sing a new song to you, O God. I will sing praises to you upon a psaltery of ten strings.
10 You are he who gives salvation to kings, who rescues David his servant from the hurtful sword.
11 Rescue me and deliver me out of the hand of aliens, whose mouth speaks deceit and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood. 12 That our sons will be as plants grown up in their youth and our daughters as cornerstones hewn according to the fashion of a palace, 13 our garners are full, affording all manner of store, our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields, 14 our oxen are well laden, no breaking in and no going forth and no outcry in our streets, 15 the people who are in such a case are fortunate.
The people whose God is Jehovah are fortunate.

Psalms 145:1-150:6

1 I will extol you, my God, O King and I will bless your name everlasting and forever. 2 Every day I will bless you and I will praise your name everlasting and forever.
3 Great is Jehovah and greatly to be praised and his greatness is unsearchable. 4 One generation will laud your works to another and will declare your mighty acts.
5 I will meditate on the glorious majesty of your honor and of your wondrous works.
6 And men will speak of the might of your fearful acts and I will declare your greatness. 7 They will pour out the memory of your great goodness and will sing of your righteousness.
8 Jehovah is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and of great loving kindness. 9 Jehovah is good to all and his tender mercies are over all his works.
10 All your works will give thanks to you, O Jehovah and your holy ones will praise you.
11 They will speak of the glory of your kingdom and talk of your power, 12 to make known to the sons of men his mighty acts and the glory of the majesty of his kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom and your dominion is throughout all generations.
14 Jehovah upholds all who fall and raises up all those who are bowed down. 15 The eyes of all wait for you and you give them their food in due season. 16 You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.
17 Jehovah is righteous in all his ways and gracious in all his works. 18 Jehovah is near to all those who call upon him, to all who call upon him in truth.
19 He will fulfill the desire of those who fear him. He also will hear their cry and will save them. 20 Jehovah preserves all those who love him, but he will destroy all the wicked.
21 My mouth will speak the praise of Jehovah. And let all flesh bless his holy name everlasting and forever.

Psalms 146:1-150:6

1 Praise Jehovah.
Praise Jehovah, O my soul. 2 While I live I will praise Jehovah. I will sing praises to my God while I have any being.
3 Do not put your* trust in rulers, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. 4 His breath goes forth, he returns to his earth. His thoughts perish in that very day.
5 He who has the God of Jacob for his help is fortunate, whose hope is in Jehovah his God, 6 who made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them, who keeps truth everlasting, 7 who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. Jehovah releases the prisoners.
8 Jehovah opens the eyes of the blind. Jehovah raises up those who are bowed down. Jehovah loves the righteous.
9 Jehovah preserves the travelers. He upholds the fatherless and widow. But the way of the wicked he turns upside down.
10 Jehovah will reign everlasting, your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise Jehovah.

Psalms 147:1-150:6

1 Praise Jehovah, because it is good to sing praises to our God. Because it is pleasant and praise is becoming.
2 Jehovah builds up Jerusalem. He gathers together the outcasts of Israel. 3 He heals the broken in heart and binds up their wounds. 4 He counts the number of the stars. He calls them all by names.
5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power. His understanding is infinite. 6 Jehovah upholds the meek. He brings the wicked down to the ground.
7 Sing to Jehovah with thanksgiving. Sing praises upon the harp to our God, 8 who covers the heavens with clouds, who prepares rain for the earth, who makes grass to grow upon the mountains. 9 He gives to the beast his food and to the young ravens which cry.
10 He does not delight in the strength of the horse. He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man. 11 Jehovah takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his loving kindness.
12 Praise Jehovah, O Jerusalem. Praise your God, O Zion. 13 Because he has strengthened the bars of your gates. He has blessed your sons within you. 14 He makes peace in your borders. He fills you with the finest of the wheat.
15 He sends out his commandment upon earth. His word runs very swiftly. 16 He gives snow like wool. He scatters the hoar-frost like ashes. 17 He casts forth his ice like morsels. Who can stand before his cold? 18 He sends out his word and melts them. He causes his wind to blow and the waters flow.
19 He shows his word to Jacob, his statutes and his ordinances to Israel. 20 He has not dealt so with any nation. And as for his ordinances, they have not known them.
Praise Jehovah.

Psalms 148:1-150:6

1 Praise Jehovah.
Praise you* Jehovah from the heavens. Praise him in the heights. 2 Praise him, all his messengers. Praise him, all his host. 3 Praise him, sun and moon. Praise him, all you* stars of light. 4 Praise him, you* heavens of heavens and you* waters that are above the heavens.
5 Let them praise the name of Jehovah. Because he commanded and they were created. 6 He has also established them everlasting and forever. He has made a decree which will not pass away.
7 Praise Jehovah from the earth, you* sea creatures and all depths, 8 fire and hail, snow and vapor, stormy wind, fulfilling his word, 9 mountains and all hills, fruitful trees and all cedars, 10 beasts and all cattle, creeping things and flying birds, 11 kings of the earth and all peoples, rulers and all judges of the earth, 12 both young men and virgins, old men and sons.
13 Let them praise the name of Jehovah, because his name alone is exalted. His glory is above the earth and the heavens.
14 And he has lifted up the horn of his people, the praise of all his holy ones, even of the sons of Israel, a people near to him. Praise Jehovah.

Psalms 149:1-150:6

1 Praise Jehovah.
Sing to Jehovah a new song and his praise in the assembly of the holy ones. 2 Let Israel rejoice in him who made him. Let the sons of Zion be joyful in their King. 3 Let them praise his name in the dance. Let them sing praises to him with timbrel and harp.
4 Because Jehovah takes pleasure in his people. He will beautify the meek with salvation. 5 Let the holy ones rejoice in glory. Let them sing for joy upon their beds.
6 The high praises of God are in their mouth and a two-edged sword in their hand 7 to execute vengeance upon the nations and punishments upon the peoples, 8 to bind their kings with chains and their ranking men with fetters of iron, 9 to execute upon them the written judgment. All his holy ones have this honor.
Praise Jehovah.

Psalms 150:1-6

1 Praise Jehovah.
Praise God in his sanctuary. Praise him in the expanse of his power. 2 Praise him for his mighty acts. Praise him according to his excellent greatness.
3 Praise him with horn and trumpet-blast. Praise him with psaltery and harp. 4 Praise him with timbrel and dance. Praise him with stringed instruments and pipe. 5 Praise him with loud cymbals. Praise him with alarming like cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath praise Jehovah.
Praise Jehovah.

Isaiah 41:11-13

11 1 Behold, all those who are incensed against you will be put to shame and confounded. Those who strive with you will be as nothing and will perish. 12 You will seek them and will not find them, even those who contend with you. Those who war against you will be as nothing and as a thing of nothing. 13 For I, Jehovah your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Do not fear, I will help you.

Matthew 5:38-41

38 You have heard that it was said, An eye in exchange-for an eye and a tooth in exchange-for a tooth. 39 But I am saying to you, Not to stand against an evil man, but who ever slaps you upon your right jaw, turn also the other to him. 40 And to him, who is willing to have a lawsuit against you and wants to take away your tunic, then also allow for him to take your\'b0 outer garment. 41 And who ever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.

16 There are six things which Jehovah hates, yes, seven which are an abomination to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue and hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that devises wicked purposes, feet that are swift in running to mischief, 19 a false witness who breathes-out lies and he who sows discord among brothers.

Matthew 5:43-48

43 You have heard that it was said, ‘You will love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I am saying to you, Love*\'b0 your enemies, speak well of those who curse you, do good things to those who hate you and pray on behalf of those who are railing at you and are persecuting you. 45 Do this that you may become sons of your Father who is in the heavens, because his sun rises upon the evil and the good and it rains upon the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you only greet your friends, what are you doing more-than others? Are not even the tax collectors doing so? 48 Therefore you will be complete, just-like your Father is complete, the one in the heavens.
