Psalms 27:1-14

1 {Davidic{ Yahweh is my Light and my Salvation; Whom should I fear? Yahweh is the Stronghold of my life; Of whom should I be afraid? 2 When evildoers drew near against me To devour my flesh, They who were to me my foes and my enemies, They stumbled and fell." 3 Though an armed force should encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war should rise up against me, In spite of this I am trusting." 4 One thing I have asked from Yahweh-- Only it am I seeking:That I may dwell in the House of Yahweh all the days of my life, To perceive the pleasantness of Yahweh, And to make my quest in His Temple." 5 For He shall seclude me in His booth in the day of evil; He shall conceal me in the secrecy of His tent; He shall safely set me high on a rock. 6 Even now my head is being raised high over my enemies round about me, And I will sacrifice in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy. I will sing and make melody to Yahweh." 7 Hear my voice, O Yahweh, when I call; Be gracious to me, and answer me." 8 To You my heart has said, I have sought Your face; Your face, O Yahweh, am I seeking." 9 O do not conceal Your face from me, O do not turn aside Your servant in anger, You Who have become my Help! O do not abandon me, And do not forsake me, O Elohim of my salvation." 10 For my father and my mother, they have forsaken me, Yet Yahweh shall gather me in." 11 Direct me, O Yahweh, in Your way, And guide me in a straight path on account of those lying in wait for me." 12 O do not give me up to the soul's desire of my foes, For false witnesses have risen against me, Even malicious calumniators." 13 I believe that I will see the goodness of Yahweh in the land of the living. 14 Be expectant toward Yahweh; Be steadfast, and let your heart be resolute. Yea, be expectant toward Yahweh."

Psalms 35:1-28

1 {Davidic{ Do contend, O Yahweh, with my contenders; Fight against those fighting me." 2 Hold fast the buckler and the large shield; Do rise up to my help. 3 Unsheathe the spear and the pike To meet those pursuing me. Say to my soul, I am your Salvation!" 4 May they be ashamed, And may they be mortified, who are seeking my soul; May they be turned away, And may they be abashed, who are devising evil against me." 5 May they become like trash before the wind, With a messenger of Yahweh expelling them." 6 Let their way become dark and slick surfaced, With a messenger of Yahweh pursuing them." 7 For gratuitously have they buried their net for me; Gratuitously have they delved a grave for my soul. 8 May ruination come upon him when he is not knowing it, And may his net that he has buried seize him; Let him fall into it to ruination." 9 Yet my soul, it shall exult in Yahweh; It shall be elated in His salvation." 10 All my bones, they shall say, O Yahweh, who is like You? Rescuing the humbled from one too unyielding for him, Both the humbled and the needy from one pillaging him." 11 Malicious witnesses arise; They ask me that which I do not know; 12 They are repaying me evil for good, Seeking bereavement to my soul." 13 As for me, when they were ill my clothing was sackcloth; I humbled my soul with fasting, Yet my prayer, it turned back on my bosom." 14 As for an associate, as for my brother, I walked about grieving; Like one mourning for his mother, I bowed down in somberness." 15 Yet when I was limping, they rejoiced and gathered together; They gathered together against me, Smiters, and I did not know it; They tore at me and would not be still." 16 With the pollutions of derisive derisions, They gnashed their teeth against me." 17 O Yahweh, how long shall You look on? Do restore my soul from their ruinations, My only one from the sheltered lions." 18 I shall acclaim You in the vast assembly; Among a staunch people shall I praise You. 19 Let them not rejoice over me, My enemies who are false; Nor let them wink the eye, Who are hating me gratuitously." 20 For they do not speak peace, And they are devising words of deceit against those enjoying respite in the land." 21 They widen their mouth against me; They say, Aha, aha, our eyes have seen it." 22 You have seen this; O Yahweh, do not be silent; O Yahweh, do not be far from me." 23 Do rouse; do awake for my due, My Elohim and my Lord, for my cause." 24 Judge me according to Your righteousness, O Yahweh my Elohim, And let them not rejoice over me." 25 Let them not say in their heart, Aha, our soul is pleased; Let them not say, We swallowed him up." 26 May those be ashamed and abashed together, Who are rejoicing in my evil lot; May those be clothed with shame and mortification, Who are magnifying themselves against me." 27 May those be jubilant and rejoice, Who take delight in my righteousness; May they say continually, Let Yahweh be magnified, Whose delight is in His servant's well-being." 28 Then my tongue shall soliloquize of Your righteousness, Of Your praise, the entire day. {Permanent{ {To the Servant of Yahweh{ "

Psalms 91:1-16

1 He who is dwelling in the concealment of the Supreme Shall lodge in the shadow of Him Who-Suffices. 2 I shall say of Yahweh:My Refuge and my Fastness, My Elohim, in Whom I trust." 3 For He Himself shall rescue you from the snare of the trapper, From the plague of woes." 4 With His pinions shall He overshadow you, And under His wings shall you take refuge; A large shield and encircling-guard is His faithfulness." 5 You shall not fear the alarm at night, Or the arrow that flies by day, 6 Neither the plague that walks in gloom, Nor the sting that devastates at high noon." 7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; It shall not come close to you." 8 But with your eyes you shall look And see the repayment of the wicked. 9 For You, O Yahweh, are my Refuge! Because you have made the Supreme your habitation, 10 Evil shall not be your fate, And contagion, it shall not approach into your tent." 11 For He shall enjoin His messengers concerning you, To keep you in all your ways." 12 On their palms shall they lift you, Lest you should strike your foot against a stone." 13 Upon the black lion and the cobra shall you tread; You shall tramp down the sheltered lion and the snake. 14 Because he is attached to Me, I shall deliver him; I shall make him impregnable, for he knows My Name." 15 He shall call on Me, and I shall answer him; I am with him in distress; I shall liberate him and glorify him." 16 With length of days shall I satisfy him, And I shall show him My salvation."
