Psalms 19:1-14

1 To the chief musician, a psalm of David. (19:2) The heavens relate the glory of God; and the expanse telleth of the works of his hands. 2 (19:3) Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. 3 (19:4) There is no speech, there are no words, their voice is not heard. 4 (19:5) But their melody extendeth through all the earth, and to the end of the world their words. For the sun hath he set a tabernacle among them; 5 (19:6) And he goeth out as a bridegroom from his chamber, he is glad like a strong man to run his course; 6 (19:7) From the end of the heavens is his going forth, and his circuit is unto their ends: and there is nothing hidden from his heat. 7 (19:8) The law of the Lord is perfect, quieting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. 8 (19:9) The precepts of the Lord are upright, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes. 9 (19:10) The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring for ever: the ordinances of the Lord are the truth, they are just altogether. 10 (19:11) They are those which are to be desired more than gold, and much fine gold; and they are sweeter than honey and the dropping of honeycomb. 11 (19:12) Moreover thy servant is admonished by them: in keeping them there is great reward. 12 (19:13) Who can guard against errors? from secret faults do thou cleanse me. 13 (19:14) Also from presumptuous sins withhold thy servant; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be blameless, and I shall be clear from any great transgression. 14 (19:15) May the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable before thee, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer.

Psalms 150:1-6

1 Hallelujah. Praise ye God in his sanctuary: praise him in the expansion of his power. 2 Praise him for his acts of might: praise him according to the abundance of his greatness. 3 Praise him with the blowing of the cornet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. 4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and pipe. 5 Praise him upon the clear-ringing cymbals: praise him upon the high-sounding cymbals. 6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Hallelujah.

Psalms 51:1-19

1 To the chief musician, a psalm of David, (51:2) When Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in unto Bath-sheba’. (51:3) Be gracious unto me, O God, according to thy kindness: according to the greatness of thy mercies blot out my transgressions. 2 (51:4) Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 3 (51:5) For of my transgressions I have full knowledge; and my sin is before me continually. 4 (51:6) To thee, thee only, have I sinned, and what is evil in thy eyes have I done:—in order that thou mightest be righteous when thou speakest, be justified when thou judgest. 5 (51:7) Behold, in iniquity was I brought forth; and in sin did my mother conceive me. 6 (51:8) Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: therefore do thou cause me to know wisdom in the recesses of the heart. 7 (51:9) Cleanse me from sin with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 8 (51:10) Cause me to hear gladness and joy; that the bones which thou hast crushed may rejoice. 9 (51:11) Hide thy face from my sins, and all my iniquities do thou blot out. 10 (51:12) Create unto me a clean heart, O God; and a firm spirit renew thou within me. 11 (51:13) Cast me not away from thy presence; and thy holy spirit do not take from me. 12 (51:14) Restore unto me the gladness of thy salvation; and with a liberal spirit do thou support me.— 13 (51:15) I will teach transgressors thy ways, and sinners shall return unto thee. 14 (51:16) Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation; that my tongue may sing aloud of thy righteousness. 15 (51:17) O Lord, open thou my lips, and my mouth shall declare thy praise. 16 (51:18) For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: in burnt-offering hast thou no delight. 17 (51:19) The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, wilt thou not despise. 18 (51:20) Do good in thy favor unto Zion; build thou the walls of Jerusalem. 19 (51:21) Then wilt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt-offering and entire offering: then shall bullocks be offered upon thy altar.

Isaiah 40:8

8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth; but the word of our God will stand firm for ever.

Psalms 1:1-6

1 BOOK FIRST: Happy is the man who walketh not in the council of the wicked, and standeth not in the way of sinners, and sitteth not in the seat of scorners; 2 But whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who doth meditate in his law by day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by rivulets of water, that yieldeth its fruit in its season, and the leaf of which doth not wither; and all that he may do shall prosper. 4 Not so the wicked; but they are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore shall the wicked not be able to stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the Lord regardeth the way of the righteous; but the way of the wicked leadeth to perdition.

Psalms 91:1-16

1 He who sitteth under the secret protection of the Most High, shall rest under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, who is my refuge and my stronghold, my God, in whom I ever trust, 3 That he will surely deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the pestilence of destruction. 4 With his pinions will he cover thee, and under his wings shalt thou find shelter: shield and buckler is his truth. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid of the terror of the night; nor of the arrow that flieth by day; 6 Nor of the pestilence that stalketh in darkness; nor of the deadly disease that wasteth at noonday. 7 There shall fall at thy side a thousand, and ten thousand at thy right hand; unto thee however shall it not come nigh. 8 Only with thy eyes shalt thou behold it, and see the recompense of the wicked. 9 Because thou hast said, The Lord is my protection, the Most High hast thou made thy refuge: 10 No evil shall befall thee, nor shall any plague come nigh unto thy tent. 11 For his angels will he give charge concerning thee, to guard thee on all thy ways. 12 Upon their hands shall they bear thee, that thou mayest not dash against a stone thy foot. 13 Upon the fierce lion and asp shalt thou tread: thou shalt trample under foot the young lion and serpent. 14 Because he hath fixed his desire upon me, therefore will I release him: I will set him on high, because he knoweth my name. 15 He will call on me, and I will answer him: with him will I be in distress; I will deliver him, and grant him honor. 16 With length of days will I satisfy him, and I will let him see my salvation.

Psalms 37:1-40

1 Of David. Do not fret thyself because of the evil-doers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. 2 For like the grass they shall soon be mowed down, and like the green herb shall they wither. 3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed thyself with truthfulness. 4 And delight thyself in the Lord, and he will give thee the wishes of thy heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the Lord, and trust in him: and he will accomplish it. 6 And he will bring forth as the light thy righteousness, and the justice of thy cause as the noonday. 7 Be silent before the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who practices wicked devices. 8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. 9 For evil-doers shall be cut off; but those that wait upon the Lord, these—shall truly inherit the land. 10 For yet but for a little while, and the wicked shall be no more: yea, thou wilt look carefully at his place, and he shall not be there. 11 But the meek shall inherit the land, and shall delight themselves because of the abundance of peace. 12 The wicked purposeth evil against the just, and gnasheth against him with his teeth. 13 The Lord will laugh at him; for he seeth that his day is coming. 14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cause the poor and needy to fall, and to slaughter such as are of an upright course of life. 15 But their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken. 16 Better is the little that the righteous hath, than the great riches of many wicked. 17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the upholder of the righteous is the Lord. 18 The Lord regardeth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall endure for ever. 19 They shall not be made ashamed in the time of unhappiness; and in the days of famine shall they be satisfied. 20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the beauty of the meadow: they pass away; in smoke they pass away. 21 The wicked borroweth, and repayeth not; but the righteous is beneficent, and giveth. 22 For those blessed of him shall inherit the land; and those cursed of him shall be cut off. 23 By the Lord are the steps of the righteous man established; and he findeth pleasure in his course of life. 24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholdeth his hand. 25 I have been young, and I am also grown old: yet have I never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed seeking for bread. 26 He is all the time beneficent, and lendeth: and his seed will be for a blessing. 27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore. 28 For the Lord loveth justice, and never forsaketh his pious servants: they are for ever preserved; but the seed of the wicked will be cut off. 29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell for ever therein. 30 The mouth of the righteous uttereth wisdom, and his tongue speaketh what is just. 31 The law of his God is in his heart: none of his steps shall slip. 32 The wicked looketh out for the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. 33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand, and will not condemn him when he is judged. 34 Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he will exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, shalt thou look on. 35 I have seen the wicked terrible in power, and striking root like a green tree in its native soil. 36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was no more: and I sought him, but he could not be found. 37 Observe the perfect man, and behold the upright; for there is a happy future for the man of peace. 38 But the transgressors are destroyed together: the future of the wicked is cut off. 39 And the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord: he is their strong-hold in the time of distress. 40 And the Lord helpeth them, and delivereth them; he will deliver them from the wicked, and save them; because they have put their trust in him.

Psalms 23:1-6

1 A psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 In pastures of tender grass he causeth me to lie down: beside still waters he leadeth me. 3 My soul he refresheth: he guideth me in the tracks of righteousness for the sake of his name. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will not fear evil; for thou art with me: thy rod and thy staff—they indeed comfort me. 5 Thou preparest before me a table in the presence of my assailants; thou anointest with oil my head: my cup overfloweth. 6 Surely, only goodness and kindness shall follow me all the days of my life: and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord to the utmost length of days.
