Psalm 1

1  Blessed are they who have not walked
      in the counsel of the wicked, ♦︎
   nor lingered in the way of sinners,
      nor sat in the assembly of the scornful.
2  Their delight is in the law of the Lord ♦︎
   and they meditate on his law day and night.
3  Like a tree planted by streams of water
      bearing fruit in due season, with leaves that do not wither, ♦︎
   whatever they do, it shall prosper.
4  As for the wicked, it is not so with them; ♦︎
   they are like chaff which the wind blows away.
5  Therefore the wicked shall not be able to stand in the judgement, ♦︎
   nor the sinner in the congregation of the righteous.
6  For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, ♦︎
   but the way of the wicked shall perish.

Psalm 2

1  Why are the nations in tumult, ♦︎
   and why do the peoples devise a vain plot?
2  The kings of the earth rise up,
      and the rulers take counsel together, ♦︎
   against the Lord and against his anointed:
3  ‘Let us break their bonds asunder ♦︎
   and cast away their cords from us.’
4  He who dwells in heaven shall laugh them to scorn; ♦︎
   the Lord shall have them in derision.
5  Then shall he speak to them in his wrath ♦︎
   and terrify them in his fury:
6  ‘Yet have I set my king ♦︎
   upon my holy hill of Zion.’
7  I will proclaim the decree of the Lord; ♦︎
   he said to me: ‘You are my Son; this day have I begotten you.
8  ‘Ask of me and I will give you the nations for your inheritance ♦︎
   and the ends of the earth for your possession.
9  ‘You shall break them with a rod of iron ♦︎
   and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.’
10  Now therefore be wise, O kings; ♦︎
   be prudent, you judges of the earth.
11  Serve the Lord with fear, and with trembling kiss his feet, ♦︎
   lest he be angry and you perish from the way,
      for his wrath is quickly kindled.
12  Happy are all they ♦︎
   who take refuge in him.

Psalm 3

1  Lord, how many are my adversaries; ♦︎
   many are they who rise up against me.
2  Many are they who say to my soul, ♦︎
   ‘There is no help for you in your God.’
3  But you, Lord, are a shield about me; ♦︎
   you are my glory, and the lifter up of my head.
4  When I cry aloud to the Lord, ♦︎
   he will answer me from his holy hill;
5  I lie down and sleep and rise again, ♦︎
   because the Lord sustains me.
6  I will not be afraid of hordes of the peoples ♦︎
   that have set themselves against me all around.
7  Rise up, O Lord, and deliver me, O my God, ♦︎
   for you strike all my enemies on the cheek
      and break the teeth of the wicked.
8  Salvation belongs to the Lord: ♦︎
   may your blessing be upon your people.
