Psalm 25

Prayer for Guidance and for Deliverance

Of David.
1 To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
2 O my God, in you I trust;
   do not let me be put to shame;
   do not let my enemies exult over me.
3 Do not let those who wait for you be put to shame;
   let them be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.


4 Make me to know your ways, O Lord;
   teach me your paths.
5 Lead me in your truth, and teach me,
   for you are the God of my salvation;
   for you I wait all day long.


6 Be mindful of your mercy, O Lord, and of your steadfast love,
   for they have been from of old.
7 Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
   according to your steadfast love remember me,
   for your goodness’ sake, O Lord!


8 Good and upright is the Lord;
   therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
9 He leads the humble in what is right,
   and teaches the humble his way.
10 All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness,
   for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.


11 For your name’s sake, O Lord,
   pardon my guilt, for it is great.
12 Who are they that fear the Lord?
   He will teach them the way that they should choose.


13 They will abide in prosperity,
   and their children shall possess the land.
14 The friendship of the Lord is for those who fear him,
   and he makes his covenant known to them.
15 My eyes are ever towards the Lord,
   for he will pluck my feet out of the net.


16 Turn to me and be gracious to me,
   for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 Relieve the troubles of my heart,
   and bring me* out of my distress.
18 Consider my affliction and my trouble,
   and forgive all my sins.


19 Consider how many are my foes,
   and with what violent hatred they hate me.
20 O guard my life, and deliver me;
   do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
21 May integrity and uprightness preserve me,
   for I wait for you.


22 Redeem Israel, O God,
   out of all its troubles.

Psalm 9

God’s Power and Justice

To the leader: according to Muth-labben. A Psalm of David.
1 I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
   I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
2 I will be glad and exult in you;
   I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.


3 When my enemies turned back,
   they stumbled and perished before you.
4 For you have maintained my just cause;
   you have sat on the throne giving righteous judgement.


5 You have rebuked the nations, you have destroyed the wicked;
   you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6 The enemies have vanished in everlasting ruins;
   their cities you have rooted out;
   the very memory of them has perished.


7 But the Lord sits enthroned for ever,
   he has established his throne for judgement.
8 He judges the world with righteousness;
   he judges the peoples with equity.


9 The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed,
   a stronghold in times of trouble.
10 And those who know your name put their trust in you,
   for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.


11 Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion.
   Declare his deeds among the peoples.
12 For he who avenges blood is mindful of them;
   he does not forget the cry of the afflicted.


13 Be gracious to me, O Lord.
   See what I suffer from those who hate me;
   you are the one who lifts me up from the gates of death,
14 so that I may recount all your praises,
   and, in the gates of daughter Zion,
   rejoice in your deliverance.


15 The nations have sunk in the pit that they made;
   in the net that they hid has their own foot been caught.
16 The Lord has made himself known, he has executed judgement;
   the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands.
          Higgaion. Selah


17 The wicked shall depart to Sheol,
   all the nations that forget God.


18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten,
   nor the hope of the poor perish for ever.


19 Rise up, O Lord! Do not let mortals prevail;
   let the nations be judged before you.
20 Put them in fear, O Lord;
   let the nations know that they are only human.
          Selah

Psalm 15

Who Shall Abide in God’s Sanctuary?

A Psalm of David.
1Lord, who may abide in your tent?
   Who may dwell on your holy hill?


2 Those who walk blamelessly, and do what is right,
   and speak the truth from their heart;
3 who do not slander with their tongue,
   and do no evil to their friends,
   nor take up a reproach against their neighbours;
4 in whose eyes the wicked are despised,
   but who honour those who fear the Lord;
who stand by their oath even to their hurt;
5 who do not lend money at interest,
   and do not take a bribe against the innocent.


Those who do these things shall never be moved.
