Psalm 15

1  Lord, who may dwell in your tabernacle? 
   Who may rest upon your holy hill?
2  Whoever leads an uncorrupt life 
   and does the thing that is right;
3  Who speaks the truth from the heart 
   and bears no deceit on the tongue;
4  Who does no evil to a friend 
   and pours no scorn on a neighbour;
5  In whose sight the wicked are not esteemed, 
   but who honours those who fear the Lord.
6  Whoever has sworn to a neighbour 
   and never goes back on that word;
7  Who does not lend money in hope of gain, 
   nor takes a bribe against the innocent;
8  Whoever does these things 
   shall never fall.

Psalm 16

1  Preserve me, O God, for in you have I taken refuge; 
   I have said to the Lord, ‘You are my lord,
      all my good depends on you.’
2  All my delight is upon the godly that are in the land, 
   upon those who are noble in heart.
3  Though the idols are legion
      that many run after, 
   their drink offerings of blood I will not offer,
      neither make mention of their names upon my lips.
4  The Lord himself is my portion and my cup; 
   in your hands alone is my fortune.
5  My share has fallen in a fair land; 
   indeed, I have a goodly heritage.
6  I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel, 
   and in the night watches he instructs my heart.
7  I have set the Lord always before me; 
   he is at my right hand; I shall not fall.
8  Wherefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoices; 
   my flesh also shall rest secure.
9  For you will not abandon my soul to Death, 
   nor suffer your faithful one to see the Pit.
10  You will show me the path of life;
      in your presence is the fullness of joy 
   and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.

Psalm 17

1  Hear my just cause, O Lord; consider my complaint; 
   listen to my prayer, which comes not from lying lips.
2  Let my vindication come forth from your presence; 
   let your eyes behold what is right.
3  Weigh my heart, examine me by night, 
   refine me, and you will find no impurity in me.
4  My mouth does not trespass for earthly rewards; 
   I have heeded the words of your lips.
5  My footsteps hold fast in the ways of your commandments; 
   my feet have not stumbled in your paths.
6  I call upon you, O God, for you will answer me; 
   incline your ear to me, and listen to my words.
7  Show me your marvellous loving-kindness, 
   O Saviour of those who take refuge at your right hand
      from those who rise up against them.
8  Keep me as the apple of your eye; 
   hide me under the shadow of your wings,
9  From the wicked who assault me, 
   from my enemies who surround me to take away my life.
10  They have closed their heart to pity 
   and their mouth speaks proud things.
11  They press me hard, they surround me on every side, 
   watching how they may cast me to the ground,
12  Like a lion that is greedy for its prey, 
   like a young lion lurking in secret places.
13  Arise, Lord; confront them and cast them down; 
   deliver me from the wicked by your sword.
14  Deliver me, O Lord, by your hand 
   from those whose portion in life is unending,
15  Whose bellies you fill with your treasure, 
   who are well supplied with children
      and leave their wealth to their little ones.
16  As for me, I shall see your face in righteousness; 
   when I awake and behold your likeness, I shall be satisfied.
