1How long, LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?2How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?3Look on me and answer, LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,4and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,” and my foes will rejoice when I fall.5But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.6I will sing the LORD’s praise, for he has been good to me.
1The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.2The LORD looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.3All have turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.4Do all these evildoers know nothing? They devour my people as though eating bread; they never call on the LORD.5But there they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous.6You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.7Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!
1LORD, who may dwell in your sacred tent? Who may live on your holy mountain?2The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from their heart;3whose tongue utters no slander, who does no wrong to a neighbor, and casts no slur on others;4who despises a vile person but honors those who fear the LORD; who keeps an oath even when it hurts, and does not change their mind;5who lends money to the poor without interest; who does not accept a bribe against the innocent. Whoever does these things will never be shaken.
1Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge.2I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.”3I say of the holy people who are in the land, “They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”4Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more. I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods or take up their names on my lips.5LORD, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure.6The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.7I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.8I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.9Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,10because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful one see decay.11You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
