Psalm 88

1O Lord, God of my salvation, when, at night, I cry out in your presence,

2let my prayer come before you; incline your ear to my cry.

3For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draws near to Sheol.

4I am counted among those who go down to the Pit; I am like those who have no help,

5like those forsaken among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, like those whom you remember no more, for they are cut off from your hand.

6You have put me in the depths of the Pit, in the regions dark and deep.

7Your wrath lies heavy upon me, and you overwhelm me with all your waves. Selah

8You have caused my companions to shun me; you have made me a thing of horror to them. I am shut in so that I cannot escape;

9my eye grows dim through sorrow. Every day I call on you, O Lord; I spread out my hands to you.

10Do you work wonders for the dead? Do the shades rise up to praise you? Selah

11Is your steadfast love declared in the grave, or your faithfulness in Abaddon?

12Are your wonders known in the darkness, or your saving help in the land of forgetfulness?

13But I, O Lord, cry out to you; in the morning my prayer comes before you.

14O Lord, why do you cast me off? Why do you hide your face from me?

15Wretched and close to death from my youth up, I suffer your terrors; I am desperate.

16Your wrath has swept over me; your dread assaults destroy me.

17They surround me like a flood all day long; from all sides they close in on me.

18You have caused friend and neighbor to shun me; my companions are in darkness.

Psalm 148

1Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights!

2Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his host!

3Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars!

4Praise him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens!

5Let them praise the name of the Lord, for he commanded and they were created.

6He established them forever and ever; he fixed their bounds, which cannot be passed.

7Praise the Lord from the earth, you sea monsters and all deeps,

8fire and hail, snow and frost, stormy wind fulfilling his command!

9Mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars!

10Wild animals and all cattle, creeping things and flying birds!

11Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth!

12Young men and women alike, old and young together!

13Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his name alone is exalted; his glory is above earth and heaven.

14He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all his faithful, for the people of Israel who are close to him. Praise the Lord!
