Psalm 89; Psalm 96; Psalm 100; Psalm 101; Psalm 105; Psalm 132

1 I will sing about the Lord's faithful love forever; with my mouth I will proclaim Your faithfulness to all generations. 2 For I will declare, "Faithful love is built up forever; You establish Your faithfulness in the heavens." 3 [The Lord said,] "I have made a covenant with My chosen one; I have sworn an oath to David My servant: 4 'I will establish your offspring forever and build up your throne for all generations.' " Selah 5 Lord, the heavens praise Your wonders- Your faithfulness also- in the assembly of the holy ones. 6 For who in the skies can compare with the Lord? Who among the heavenly beings is like the Lord? 7 God is greatly feared in the council of the holy ones, more awe-inspiring than all who surround Him. 8 Lord God of Hosts, who is strong like You, Lord? Your faithfulness surrounds You. 9 You rule the raging sea; when its waves surge, You still them. 10 You crushed Rahab like one who is slain; You scattered Your enemies with Your powerful arm. 11 The heavens are Yours; the earth also is Yours. The world and everything in it-You founded them. 12 North and south-You created them. Tabor and Hermon shout for joy at Your name. 13 You have a mighty arm; Your hand is powerful; Your right hand is lifted high. 14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; faithful love and truth go before You. 15 Happy are the people who know the joyful shout; Lord, they walk in the light of Your presence. 16 They rejoice in Your name all day long, and they are exalted by Your righteousness. 17 For You are their magnificent strength; by Your favor our horn is exalted. 18 Surely our shield belongs to the Lord, our king to the Holy One of Israel. 19 You once spoke in a vision to Your loyal ones and said: "I have granted help to a warrior; I have exalted one chosen from the people. 20 I have found David My servant; I have anointed him with My sacred oil. 21 My hand will always be with him, and My arm will strengthen him. 22 The enemy will not afflict him; no wicked man will oppress him. 23 I will crush his foes before him and strike those who hate him. 24 My faithfulness and love will be with him, and through My name his horn will be exalted. 25 I will extend his power to the sea and his right hand to the rivers. 26 He will call to Me, 'You are my Father, my God, the rock of my salvation.' 27 I will also make him My firstborn, greatest of the kings of the earth. 28 I will always preserve My faithful love for him, and My covenant with him will endure. 29 I will establish his line forever, his throne as long as heaven lasts. 30 If his sons forsake My instruction and do not live by My ordinances, 31 if they dishonor My statutes and do not keep My commandments, 32 then I will call their rebellion to account with the rod, their sin with blows. 33 But I will not withdraw My faithful love from him or betray My faithfulness. 34 I will not violate My covenant or change what My lips have said. 35 Once and for all I have sworn an oath by My holiness; I will not lie to David. 36 His offspring will continue forever, his throne like the sun before Me, 37 like the moon, established forever, a faithful witness in the sky." Selah 38 But You have spurned and rejected him; You have become enraged with Your anointed. 39 You have repudiated the covenant with Your servant; You have completely dishonored his crown. 40 You have broken down all his walls; You have reduced his fortified cities to ruins. 41 All who pass by plunder him; he has become a joke to his neighbors. 42 You have lifted high the right hand of his foes; You have made all his enemies rejoice. 43 You have also turned back his sharp sword and have not let him stand in battle. 44 You have made his splendor cease and have overturned his throne. 45 You have shortened the days of his youth; You have covered him with shame. Selah 46 How long, Lord? Will You hide Yourself forever? Will Your anger keep burning like fire? 47 Remember how short my life is. Have You created everyone for nothing? 48 What man can live and never see death? Who can save himself from the power of Sheol? Selah 49 Lord, where are the former acts of Your faithful love that You swore to David in Your faithfulness? 50 Remember, Lord, the ridicule against Your servants- in my heart I carry [abuse] from all the peoples- 51 how Your enemies have ridiculed, Lord, how they have ridiculed every step of Your anointed. 52 May the Lord be praised forever. Amen and amen. BOOK IV (Psalms 90-106)
1 Sing a new song to the Lord; sing to the Lord, all the earth. 2 Sing to the Lord, praise His name; proclaim His salvation from day to day. 3 Declare His glory among the nations, His wonderful works among all peoples. 4 For the Lord is great and is highly praised; He is feared above all gods. 5 For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but the Lord made the heavens. 6 Splendor and majesty are before Him; strength and beauty are in His sanctuary. 7 Ascribe to the Lord, you families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. 8 Ascribe to the Lord the glory of His name; bring an offering and enter His courts. 9 Worship the Lord in the splendor of [His] holiness; tremble before Him, all the earth. 10 Say among the nations: "The Lord reigns. The world is firmly established; it cannot be shaken. He judges the peoples fairly." 11 Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice; let the sea and all that fills it resound. 12 Let the fields and everything in them exult. Then all the trees of the forest will shout for joy 13 before the Lord, for He is coming- for He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness and the peoples with His faithfulness.
1 Shout triumphantly to the Lord, all the earth. 2 Serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. 3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God. He made us, and we are His - His people, the sheep of His pasture. 4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name. 5 For the Lord is good, and His love is eternal; His faithfulness endures through all generations.
1 I will sing of faithful love and justice; I will sing praise to You, Lord. 2 I will pay attention to the way of integrity. When will You come to me? I will live with integrity of heart in my house. 3 I will not set anything godless before my eyes. I hate the doing of transgression; it will not cling to me. 4 A devious heart will be far from me; I will not be involved with evil. 5 I will destroy anyone who secretly slanders his neighbor; I cannot tolerate anyone with haughty eyes or an arrogant heart. 6 My eyes [favor] the faithful of the land so that they may sit down with me. The one who follows the way of integrity may serve me. 7 No one who acts deceitfully will live in my palace; no one who tells lies will remain in my presence. 8 Every morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land, eliminating all evildoers from the Lord's city.
1 Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name; proclaim His deeds among the peoples. 2 Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; tell about all His wonderful works! 3 Honor His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. 4 Search for the Lord and for His strength; seek His face always. 5 Remember the wonderful works He has done, His wonders, and the judgments He has pronounced, 6 you offspring of Abraham His servant, Jacob's descendants -His chosen ones. 7 He is the Lord our God; His judgments [govern] the whole earth. 8 He forever remembers His covenant, the promise He ordained for a thousand generations- 9 [the covenant] He made with Abraham, swore to Isaac, 10 and confirmed to Jacob as a decree and to Israel as an everlasting covenant: 11 "I will give the land of Canaan to you as your inherited portion." 12 When they were few in number, very few indeed, and temporary residents in Canaan, 13 wandering from nation to nation and from one kingdom to another, 14 He allowed no one to oppress them; He rebuked kings on their behalf: 15 "Do not touch My anointed ones, or harm My prophets." 16 He called down famine against the land and destroyed the entire food supply. 17 He had sent a man ahead of them- Joseph, who was sold as a slave. 18 They hurt his feet with shackles; his neck was put in an iron collar. 19 Until the time his prediction came true, the word of the Lord tested him. 20 The king sent [for him] and released him; the ruler of peoples set him free. 21 He made him master of his household, ruler over all his possessions- 22 binding his officials at will and instructing his elders. 23 Then Israel went to Egypt; Jacob lived as a foreigner in the land of Ham. 24 The Lord made His people very fruitful; He made them more numerous than their foes, 25 whose hearts He turned to hate His people and to deal deceptively with His servants. 26 He sent Moses His servant, and Aaron, whom He had chosen. 27 They performed His miraculous signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham. 28 He sent darkness, and it became dark- for did they not defy His commands? 29 He turned their waters into blood and caused their fish to die. 30 Their land was overrun with frogs, even in their kings' chambers. 31 He spoke, and insects came- gnats throughout their country. 32 He gave them hail for rain, and lightning throughout their land. 33 He struck their vines and fig trees and shattered the trees of their territory. 34 He spoke and locusts came- young locusts without number. 35 They devoured all the vegetation in their land and consumed the produce of their soil. 36 He struck all the firstborn in their land, all their first progeny. 37 Then He brought Israel out with silver and gold, and no one among His tribes stumbled. 38 Egypt was glad when they left, for dread of Israel had fallen on them. 39 He spread a cloud as a covering and [gave] a fire to light up the night. 40 They asked, and He brought quail and satisfied them with bread from heaven. 41 He opened a rock, and water gushed out; it flowed like a stream in the desert. 42 For He remembered His holy promise to Abraham His servant. 43 He brought His people out with rejoicing, His chosen ones with shouts of joy. 44 He gave them the lands of the nations, and they inherited what other peoples had worked for. 45 [All this happened] so that they might keep His statutes and obey His laws. Hallelujah!
1 Lord, remember David and all the hardships he endured, 2 and how he swore an oath to the Lord, making a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob: 3 "I will not enter my house or get into my bed, 4 I will not allow my eyes to sleep or my eyelids to slumber 5 until I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob." 6 We heard of [the ark] in Ephrathah; we found it in the fields of Jaar. 7 Let us go to His dwelling place; let us worship at His footstool. 8 Arise, Lord, come to Your resting place, You and the ark [that shows] Your strength. 9 May Your priests be clothed with righteousness, and may Your godly people shout for joy. 10 Because of Your servant David, do not reject Your anointed one. 11 The Lord swore an oath to David, a promise He will not abandon: "I will set one of your descendants on your throne. 12 If your sons keep My covenant and My decrees that I will teach them, their sons will also sit on your throne, forever." 13 For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His home: 14 "This is My resting place forever; I will make My home here because I have desired it. 15 I will abundantly bless its food; I will satisfy its needy with bread. 16 I will clothe its priests with salvation, and its godly people will shout for joy. 17 There I will make a horn grow for David; I have prepared a lamp for My anointed one. 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown he wears will be glorious."
