LORD, hear my prayer,listen to my cry for mercy;in your faithfulness and righteousnesscome to my relief.Do not bring your servant into judgment,for no one living is righteous before you.The enemy pursues me,he crushes me to the ground;he makes me dwell in the darknesslike those long dead.So my spirit grows faint within me;my heart within me is dismayed.I remember the days…

By the rivers of Babylon we sat and weptwhen we remembered Zion.There on the poplarswe hung our harps,for there our captors asked us for songs,our tormentors demanded songs of joy;they said, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”How can we sing the songs of the LORDwhile in a foreign land?If I forget you, Jerusalem,may my right hand forget its…

The psalmist sings: How good and pleasant…
LORD, remember Davidand all his self-denial.He swore an oath to the LORD,he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:“I will not enter my houseor go to my bed,I will allow no sleep to my eyesor slumber to my eyelids,till I find a place for the LORD,a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”We heard it in Ephrathah,we came…

Not to us, LORD, not to usbut to your name be the glory,because of your love and faithfulness.Why do the nations say,“Where is their God?”Our God is in heaven;he does whatever pleases him.But their idols are silver and gold,made by human hands.They have mouths, but cannot speak,eyes, but cannot see.They have ears, but cannot hear,noses, but cannot smell.They have hands,…

Do you rulers indeed speak justly?Do you judge people with equity?No, in your heart you devise injustice,and your hands mete out violence on the earth.Even from birth the wicked go astray;from the womb they are wayward, spreading lies.Their venom is like the venom of a snake,like that of a cobra that has stopped its ears,that will not heed the tune…
Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me,for in you I take refuge.I will take refuge in the shadow of your wingsuntil the disaster has passed.I cry out to God Most High,to God, who vindicates me.He sends from heaven and saves me,rebuking those who hotly pursue me—God sends forth his love and his faithfulness.I am in the midst…
Be merciful to me, my God,for my enemies are in hot pursuit;all day long they press their attack.My adversaries pursue me all day long;in their pride many are attacking me.When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.In God, whose word I praise—in God I trust and am not afraid.What can mere mortals do to me?All day long they…
Listen to my prayer, O God,do not ignore my plea;hear me and answer me.My thoughts trouble me and I am distraughtbecause of what my enemy is saying,because of the threats of the wicked;for they bring down suffering on meand assail me in their anger.My heart is in anguish within me;the terrors of death have fallen on me.Fear and trembling have…
Save me, O God, by your name;vindicate me by your might.Hear my prayer, O God;listen to the words of my mouth.Arrogant foes are attacking me;ruthless people are trying to kill me —people without regard for God.Surely God is my help;the Lord is the one who sustains me.Let evil recoil on those who slander me;in your faithfulness destroy them.I will sacrifice…
The fool says in his heart,“There is no God.”They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;there is no one who does good.God looks down from heavenon all mankindto see if there are any who understand,any who seek God.Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt;there is no one who does good,not even one.Do all these evildoers know nothing?They devour my…
Why do you boast of evil, you mighty hero?Why do you boast all day long,you who are a disgrace in the eyes of God?You who practice deceit,your tongue plots destruction;it is like a sharpened razor.You love evil rather than good,falsehood rather than speaking the truth.You love every harmful word,you deceitful tongue!Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin:He will…
Have mercy on me, O God,according to your unfailing love;according to your great compassionblot out my transgressions.Wash away all my iniquityand cleanse me from my sin.For I know my transgressions,and my sin is always before me.Against you, you only, have I sinnedand done what is evil in your sight;so you are right in your verdictand justified when you judge.Surely I…
