Psalms 19:1-14

1 Unto the end. A Psalm Chapter for David. (19:2) The heavens shew forth the glory of God, and the firmament declareth the work of his hands. 2 (19:3) Day to day uttereth speech, and night to night sheweth knowledge. 3 (19:4) There are no speeches nor languages, where their voices are not heard. 4 (19:5) Their sound hath gone forth into all the earth: and their words unto the ends of the world. 5 (19:6) He hath set his tabernacle in the sun: and he as a bridegroom coming out of his bridechamber, Hath rejoiced as a giant to run the way: 6 (19:7) His going out is from the end of heaven, And his circuit even to the end thereof: and there is no one that can hide himself from his heat. 7 (19:8) The law of the Lord is unspotted, converting souls: the testimony of the Lord is faithful, giving wisdom to little ones. 8 (19:9) The justices of the Lord are right, rejoicing hearts: the commandment of the Lord is lightsome, enlightening the eyes. 9 (19:10) The fear of the Lord is holy, enduring for ever and ever: the judgments of the Lord are true, justified in themselves. 10 (19:11) More to be desired than gold and many precious stones: and sweeter than honey and the honeycomb. 11 (19:12) For thy servant keepeth them, and in keeping them there is a great reward. 12 (19:13) Who can understand sins? from my secret ones cleanse me, O Lord: 13 (19:14) And from those of others spare thy servant. If they shall have no dominion over me, then shall I be without spot: and I shall be cleansed form the greatest sin. 14 (19:15) And the words of my mouth shall be such as may please: and the meditation of my heart always in thy sight. O Lord, my helper and my Redeemer.

Psalms 51:1-19

1 Unto the end, a psalm of David, (51:2) When Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had sinned with Bethsabee. [2 Samuel 12] (51:3) Have mercy on me, O God, according to thy great mercy. And according to the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my iniquity. 2 (51:4) Wash me yet more from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 3 (51:5) For I know my iniquity, and my sin is always before me. 4 (51:6) To thee only have I sinned, and have done evil before thee: that thou mayst be justified in thy words, and mayst overcome when thou art judged. 5 (51:7) For behold I was conceived in iniquities; and in sins did my mother conceive me. 6 (51:8) For behold thou hast loved truth: the uncertain and hidden things of thy wisdom thou hast made manifest to me. 7 (51:9) Thou shalt sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be cleansed: thou shalt wash me, and I shall be made whiter than snow. 8 (51:10) To my hearing thou shalt give joy and gladness: and the bones that have been humbled shall rejoice. 9 (51:11) Turn away thy face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. 10 (51:12) Create a clean heart in me, O God: and renew a right spirit within my bowels. 11 (51:13) Cast me not away from thy face; and take not thy holy spirit from me. 12 (51:14) Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation, and strengthen me with a perfect spirit. 13 (51:15) I will teach the unjust thy ways: and the wicked shall be converted to thee. 14 (51:16) Deliver me from blood, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall extol thy justice. 15 (51:17) O Lord, thou wilt open my lips: and my mouth shall declare thy praise. 16 (51:18) For if thou hadst desired sacrifice, I would indeed have given it: with burnt offerings thou wilt not be delighted. 17 (51:19) A sacrifice to God is an afflicted spirit: a contrite and humbled heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. 18 (51:20) Deal favourably, O Lord, in thy good will with Sion; that the walls of Jerusalem may be built up. 19 (51:21) Then shalt thou accept the sacrifice of justice, oblations and whole burnt offerings: then shall they lay calves upon thy altar.

Psalms 150:1-6

1 Praise ye the Lord in his holy places: praise ye him in the firmament of his power. 2 Praise ye him for his mighty acts: praise ye him according to the multitude of his greatness. 3 Praise him with the sound of trumpet: praise him with psaltery and harp. 4 Praise him with timbrel and choir: praise him with strings and organs. 5 Praise him on high sounding cymbals: praise him on cymbals of joy: 6 Let every spirit praise the Lord. Alleluia.

Isaiah 40:8

8 The grass is withered, and the flower is fallen: but the word of our Lord endureth for ever.

Ephesians 5:19

19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual canticles, singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord:

2 Timothy 3:16

16 All scripture, inspired of God, is profitable to teach, to reprove, to correct, to instruct in justice:

Psalms 91:1-16

1 The praise of a canticle for David. He that dwelleth in the aid of the most High, shall abide under the protection of the God of Jacob. 2 He shall say to the Lord: Thou art my protector, and my refuge: my God, in him will I trust. 3 For he hath delivered me from the snare of the hunters: and from the sharp word. 4 He will overshadow thee with his shoulders: and under his wings thou shalt trust. 5 His truth shall compass thee with a shield: thou shalt not be afraid of the terror of the night. 6 Of the arrow that flieth in the day, of the business that walketh about in the dark: of invasion, or of the noonday devil. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand: but it shall not come nigh thee. 8 But thou shalt consider with thy eyes: and shalt see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because thou, O Lord, art my hope: thou hast made the most High thy refuge. 10 There shall no evil come to thee: nor shall the scourge come near thy dwelling. 11 For he hath given his angels charge over thee; to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 In their hands they shall bear thee up: lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt walk upon the asp and the basilisk: and thou shalt trample under foot the lion and the dragon. 14 Because he hoped in me I will deliver him: I will protect him because he hath known my name. 15 He shall cry to me, and I will hear him: I am with him in tribulation, I will deliver him, and I will glorify him. 16 I will fill him with length of days; and I will shew him my salvation.

Psalms 37:1-40

1 Be not emulous of evildoers; nor envy them that work iniquity. 2 For they shall shortly wither away as grass, and as the green herbs shall quickly fall. 3 Trust in the Lord, and do good, and dwell in the land, and thou shalt be fed with its riches. 4 Delight in the Lord, and he will give thee the requests of thy heart. 5 Commit thy way to the Lord, and trust in him, and he will do it. 6 And he will bring forth thy justice as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. 7 Be subject to the Lord and pray to him. Envy not the man who prospereth in his way; the man who doth unjust things. 8 Cease from anger, and leave rage; have no emulation to do evil. 9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but they that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the land. 10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: and thou shalt seek his place, and shalt not find it. 11 But the meek shall inherit the land, and shall delight in abundance of peace. 12 The sinner shall watch the just man: and shall gnash upon him with his teeth. 13 But the Lord shall laugh at him: for he foreseeth that his day shall come. 14 The wicked have drawn out the sword: they have bent their bow. To cast down the poor and needy, to kill the upright of heart. 15 Let their sword enter into their own hearts, and let their bow be broken. 16 Better is a little to the just, than the great riches of the wicked. 17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken in pieces; but the Lord strengtheneth the just. 18 The Lord knoweth the days of the undefiled; and their inheritance shall be for ever. 19 They shall not be confounded in the evil time; and in the days of famine they shall be filled: 20 Because the wicked shall perish. And the enemies of the Lord, presently after they shall be honoured and exalted, shall come to nothing and vanish like smoke. 21 The sinner shall borrow, and not pay again; but the just sheweth mercy and shall give. 22 For such as bless him shall inherit the land: but such as curse him shall perish. 23 With the Lord shall the steps of a man be directed, and he shall like well his way. 24 When he shall fall he shall not be bruised, for the Lord putteth his hand under him. 25 I have been young and now am old; and I have not seen the just forsaken, nor his seed seeking bread. 26 He sheweth mercy, and lendeth all the day long; and his seed shall be in blessing. 27 Decline from evil and do good, and dwell for ever and ever. 28 For the Lord loveth judgment, and will not forsake his saints: they shall be preserved for ever. The unjust shall be punished, and the seed of the wicked shall perish. 29 But the just shall inherit the land, and shall dwell therein for evermore. 30 The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom: and his tongue shall speak judgment. 31 The law of his God is in his heart, and his steps shall not be supplanted. 32 The wicked watcheth the just man, and seeketh to put him to death, 33 But the Lord will not leave him in his hands; nor condemn him when he shall be judged. 34 Expect the Lord and keep his way: and he will exalt thee to inherit the land: when the sinners shall perish thou shalt see. 35 I have seen the wicked highly exalted, and lifted up like the cedars of Libanus. 36 And I passed by, and lo, he was not: and I sought him and his place was not found. 37 Keep innocence, and behold justice: for there are remnants for the peaceable man. 38 But the unjust shall be destroyed together: the remnants of the wicked shall perish. 39 But the salvation of the just is from the Lord, and he is their protector in the time of trouble. 40 And the Lord will help them and deliver them: and he will rescue them from the wicked, and save them because they have hoped in him.

Psalms 1:1-6

1 Blessed is the man who hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat in the chair of pestilence: 2 But his will is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he shall meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree which is planted near the running waters, which shall bring forth its fruit, in due season. And his leaf shall not fall off: and all whatsoever he shall do shall prosper. 4 Not so the wicked, not so: but like the dust, which the wind driveth from the face of the earth. 5 Therefore the wicked shall not rise again in judgment: nor sinners in the council of the just. 6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the just: and the way of the wicked shall perish.

Colossians 3:16

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you abundantly: in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms, hymns and spiritual canticles, singing in grace in your hearts to God.

Psalms 23:1-6

1 A psalm for David. The Lord ruleth me: and I shall want nothing. 2 He hath set me in a place of pasture. He hath brought me up, on the water of refreshment: 3 He hath converted my soul. He hath led me on the paths of justice, for his own name's sake. 4 For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils, for thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they have comforted me. 5 Thou hast prepared a table before me against them that afflict me. Thou hast anointed my head with oil; and my chalice which inebreateth me, how goodly is it! 6 And thy mercy will follow me all the days of my life. And that I may dwell in the house of the Lord unto length of days.
