Psalm 4

1Answer me when I call, O God of my right! You gave me room when I was in distress. Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.

2How long, you people, shall my honor suffer shame? How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies? Selah

3But know that the Lord has set apart the faithful for himself; the Lord hears when I call to him.

4When you are disturbed, do not sin; ponder it on your beds, and be silent. Selah

5Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the Lord.

6There are many who say, “O that we might see some good! Let the light of your face shine on us, O Lord!”

7You have put gladness in my heart more than when their grain and wine abound.

8I will both lie down and sleep in peace; for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety.

Psalm 16

1Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge.

2I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.”

3As for the holy ones in the land, they are the noble, in whom is all my delight.

4Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names upon my lips.

5The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.

6The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; I have a goodly heritage.

7I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.

8I keep the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

9Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also rests secure.

10For you do not give me up to Sheol, or let your faithful one see the Pit.

11You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Psalm 23

1The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

2He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters;

3he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.

4Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff— they comfort me.

5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.

<<

Psalm 28

1To you, O Lord, I call; my rock, do not refuse to hear me, for if you are silent to me, I shall be like those who go down to the Pit.

2Hear the voice of my supplication, as I cry to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your most holy sanctuary.

3Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who are workers of evil, who speak peace with their neighbors, while mischief is in their hearts.

4Repay them according to their work, and according to the evil of their deeds; repay them according to the work of their hands; render them their due reward.

5Because they do not regard the works of the Lord, or the work of his hands, he will break them down and build them up no more.

6Blessed be the Lord, for he has heard the sound of my pleadings.

7The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts; so I am helped, and my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.

8The Lord is the strength of his people; he is the saving refuge of his anointed.

9O save your people, and bless your heritage; be their shepherd, and carry them forever.

Psalm 36

1Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in their hearts; there is no fear of God before their eyes.

2For they flatter themselves in their own eyes that their iniquity cannot be found out and hated.

3The words of their mouths are mischief and deceit; they have ceased to act wisely and do good.

4They plot mischief while on their beds; they are set on a way that is not good; they do not reject evil.

5Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.

6Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your judgments are like the great deep; you save humans and animals alike, O Lord.

7How precious is your steadfast love, O God! All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

8They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights.

9For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.

10O continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your salvation to the upright of heart!

11Do not let the foot of the arrogant tread on me, or the hand of the wicked drive me away.

12There the evildoers lie prostrate; they are thrust down, unable to rise.

Psalm 55

1Give ear to my prayer, O God; do not hide yourself from my supplication.

2Attend to me, and answer me; I am troubled in my complaint. I am distraught

3by the noise of the enemy, because of the clamor of the wicked. For they bring trouble upon me, and in anger they cherish enmity against me.

4My heart is in anguish within me, the terrors of death have fallen upon me.

5Fear and trembling come upon me, and horror overwhelms me.

6And I say, “O that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest;

7truly, I would flee far away; I would lodge in the wilderness; Selah

8I would hurry to find a shelter for myself from the raging wind and tempest.”

9Confuse, O Lord, confound their speech; for I see violence and strife in the city.

10Day and night they go around it on its walls, and iniquity and trouble are within it;

11ruin is in its midst; oppression and fraud do not depart from its marketplace.

12It is not enemies who taunt me— I could bear that; it is not adversaries who deal insolently with me— I could hide from them.

13But it is you, my equal, my companion, my familiar friend,

14with whom I kept pleasant company; we walked in the house of God with the throng.

15Let death come upon them; let them go down alive to Sheol; for evil is in their homes and in their hearts.

16But I call upon God, and the Lord will save me.

17Evening and morning and at noon I utter my complaint and moan, and he will hear my voice.

18He will redeem me unharmed from the battle that I wage, for many are arrayed against me.

19God, who is enthroned from of old, Selah will hear, and will humble them— because they do not change, and do not fear God.

20My companion laid hands on a friend and violated a covenant with me

21with speech smoother than butter, but with a heart set on war; with words that were softer than oil, but in fact were drawn swords.

22Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.

23But you, O God, will cast them down into the lowest pit; the bloodthirsty and treacherous shall not live out half their days. But I will trust in you.

Psalm 57

1Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, until the destroying storms pass by.

2I cry to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.

3He will send from heaven and save me, he will put to shame those who trample on me. Selah God will send forth his steadfast love and his faithfulness.

4I lie down among lions that greedily devour human prey; their teeth are spears and arrows, their tongues sharp swords.

5Be exalted, O God, above the heavens. Let your glory be over all the earth.

6They set a net for my steps; my soul was bowed down. They dug a pit in my path, but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah

7My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast. I will sing and make melody.

8Awake, my soul! Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn.

9I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations.

10For your steadfast love is as high as the heavens; your faithfulness extends to the clouds.

11Be exalted, O God, above the heavens. Let your glory be over all the earth.

Psalm 63

1O God, you are my God, I seek you, my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

2So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory.

3Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.

4So I will bless you as long as I live; I will lift up my hands and call on your name.

5My soul is satisfied as with a rich feast, and my mouth praises you with joyful lips

6when I think of you on my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night;

7for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I sing for joy.

8My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.

9But those who seek to destroy my life shall go down into the depths of the earth;

10they shall be given over to the power of the sword, they shall be prey for jackals.

11But the king shall rejoice in God; all who swear by him shall exult, for the mouths of liars will be stopped.

Psalm 84

1How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts!

2My soul longs, indeed it faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.

3Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.

4Happy are those who live in your house, ever singing your praise. Selah

5Happy are those whose strength is in you, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.

6As they go through the valley of Baca they make it a place of springs; the early rain also covers it with pools.

7They go from strength to strength; the God of gods will be seen in Zion.

8O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah

9Behold our shield, O God; look on the face of your anointed.

10For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than live in the tents of wickedness.

11For the Lord God is a sun and shield; he bestows favor and honor. No good thing does the Lord withhold from those who walk uprightly.

12O Lord of hosts, happy is everyone who trusts in you.

Psalm 91

1You who live in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,

2will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.”

3For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence;

4he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

5You will not fear the terror of the night, or the arrow that flies by day,

6or the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or the destruction that wastes at noonday.

7A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.

8You will only look with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

9Because you have made the Lord your refuge, the Most High your dwelling place,

10no evil shall befall you, no scourge come near your tent.

11For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.

12On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.

13You will tread on the lion and the adder, the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.

14Those who love me, I will deliver; I will protect those who know my name.

15When they call to me, I will answer them; I will be with them in trouble, I will rescue them and honor them.

16With long life I will satisfy them, and show them my salvation.
