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.
