1 My heart is confident, God; I will sing; I will sing praises with the whole of my being. 2 Wake up, harp and lyre! I will wake up the dawn. 3 I will praise You, Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations. 4 For Your faithful love is higher than the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches the clouds. 5 God, be exalted above the heavens; let Your glory be over the whole earth. 6 Save with Your right hand and answer me so that those You love may be rescued. 7 God has spoken in His sanctuary: "I will triumph! I will divide up Shechem. I will apportion the Valley of Succoth. 8 Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine, and Ephraim is My helmet; Judah is My scepter. 9 Moab is My washbasin; on Edom I throw My sandal. Over Philistia I shout in triumph." 10 Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom? 11 Have You not rejected us, God? God, You do not march out with our armies. 12 Give us aid against the foe, for human help is worthless. 13 With God we will perform valiantly; He will trample our foes.
1 God of my praise, do not be silent. 2 For wicked and deceitful mouths open against me; they speak against me with lying tongues. 3 They surround me with hateful words and attack me without cause. 4 In return for my love they accuse me, but I continue to pray. 5 They repay me evil for good, and hatred for my love. 6 Set a wicked person over him; let an accuser stand at his right hand. 7 When he is judged, let him be found guilty, and let his prayer be counted as sin. 8 Let his days be few; let another take over his position. 9 Let his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. 10 Let his children wander as beggars, searching [for food] far from their demolished homes. 11 Let a creditor seize all he has; let strangers plunder what he has worked for. 12 Let no one show him kindness, and let no one be gracious to his fatherless children. 13 Let the line of his descendants be cut off; let their name be blotted out in the next generation. 14 Let his forefathers' guilt be remembered before the Lord, and do not let his mother's sin be blotted out. 15 Let their sins always remain before the Lord, and let Him cut off [all] memory of them from the earth. 16 For he did not think to show kindness, but pursued the wretched poor and the brokenhearted in order to put them to death. 17 He loved cursing-let it fall on him; he took no delight in blessing-let it be far from him. 18 He wore cursing like his coat- let it enter his body like water and go into his bones like oil. 19 Let it be like a robe he wraps around himself, like a belt he always wears. 20 Let this be the Lord's payment to my accusers, to those who speak evil against me. 21 But You, God my Lord, deal [kindly] with me because of Your name; deliver me because of the goodness of Your faithful love. 22 For I am poor and needy; my heart is wounded within me. 23 I fade away like a lengthening shadow; I am shaken off like a locust. 24 My knees are weak from fasting, and my body is emaciated. 25 I have become an object of ridicule to my accusers; when they see me, they shake their heads [in scorn]. 26 Help me, Lord my God; save me according to Your faithful love 27 so they may know that this is Your hand and that You, Lord, have done it. 28 Though they curse, You will bless. When they rise up, they will be put to shame, but Your servant will rejoice. 29 My accusers will be clothed with disgrace; they will wear their shame like a cloak. 30 I will fervently thank the Lord with my mouth; I will praise Him in the presence of many. 31 For He stands at the right hand of the needy, to save him from those who would condemn him.
1 The Lord declared to my Lord: "Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool." 2 The Lord will extend Your mighty scepter from Zion. Rule over Your surrounding enemies. 3 Your people will volunteer on Your day of battle. In holy splendor, from the womb of the dawn, the dew of Your youth belongs to You. 4 The Lord has sworn an oath and will not take it back: "Forever, You are a priest like Melchizedek." 5 The Lord is at Your right hand; He will crush kings on the day of His anger. 6 He will judge the nations, heaping up corpses; He will crush leaders over the entire world. 7 He will drink from the brook by the road; therefore, He will lift up His head.
1 Hallelujah! I will praise the Lord with all my heart in the assembly of the upright and in the congregation. 2 The Lord's works are great, studied by all who delight in them. 3 All that He does is splendid and majestic; His righteousness endures forever. 4 He has caused His wonderful works to be remembered. The Lord is gracious and compassionate. 5 He has provided food for those who fear Him; He remembers His covenant forever. 6 He has shown His people the power of His works by giving them the inheritance of the nations. 7 The works of His hands are truth and justice; all His instructions are trustworthy. 8 They are established forever and ever, enacted in truth and uprightness. 9 He has sent redemption to His people. He has ordained His covenant forever. His name is holy and awe-inspiring. 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow His instructions have good insight. His praise endures forever.
1 Hallelujah! Happy is the man who fears the Lord, taking great delight in His commandments. 2 His descendants will be powerful in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. 3 Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever. 4 Light shines in the darkness for the upright. He is gracious, compassionate, and righteous. 5 Good will come to a man who lends generously and conducts his business fairly. 6 He will never be shaken. The righteous will be remembered forever. 7 He will not fear bad news; his heart is confident, trusting in the Lord. 8 His heart is assured; he will not fear. In the end he will look in triumph on his foes. 9 He distributes freely to the poor; his righteousness endures forever. His horn will be exalted in honor. 10 The wicked man will see [it] and be angry; he will gnash his teeth in despair. The desire of the wicked will come to nothing.
1 Hallelujah! Give praise, servants of the Lord; praise the name of the Lord. 2 Let the name of the Lord be praised both now and forever. 3 From the rising of the sun to its setting, let the name of the Lord be praised. 4 The Lord is exalted above all the nations, His glory above the heavens. 5 Who is like the Lord our God- the One enthroned on high, 6 who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth? 7 He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the garbage pile 8 in order to seat them with nobles- with the nobles of His people. 9 He gives the childless woman a household, [making her] the joyful mother of children. Hallelujah!
1 When Israel came out of Egypt- the house of Jacob from a people who spoke a foreign language- 2 Judah became His sanctuary, Israel, His dominion. 3 The sea looked and fled; the Jordan turned back. 4 The mountains skipped like rams, the hills, like lambs. 5 Why was it, sea, that you fled? Jordan, that you turned back? 6 Mountains, that you skipped like rams? Hills, like lambs? 7 Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, 8 who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a spring of water.
