1Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.2From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.3For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.4I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.5For you, God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.6Increase the days of the king’s life, his years for many generations.7May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.8Then I will ever sing in praise of your name and fulfill my vows day after day.
1Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him.2Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.3How long will you assault me? Would all of you throw me down— this leaning wall, this tottering fence?4Surely they intend to topple me from my lofty place; they take delight in lies. With their mouths they bless, but in their hearts they curse.5Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.6Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.7My salvation and my honor depend on God ; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.8Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.9Surely the lowborn are but a breath, the highborn are but a lie. If weighed on a balance, they are nothing; together they are only a breath.10Do not trust in extortion or put vain hope in stolen goods; though your riches increase, do not set your heart on them.11One thing God has spoken, two things I have heard: “Power belongs to you, God,12and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”; and, “You reward everyone according to what they have done.”
1You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.2I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.3Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.4I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.5I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.6On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.7Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.8I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.9Those who want to kill me will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth.10They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.11But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God will glory in him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
