my friend William Alexander Smith is the  featured soldier for more stuff...6
...he poetically takes us through his tribute to the psalms...on this page you will find psalms 1-38 in the right hand column of the  page...copied straight from the Bible, the Book of LIVING WORDS...
and on the left you will find our brother Bill`s tributes to the psalms(1 through 38)...along with links to more JESUS stuff and activities...enJOY yourselves friends...and thank you Bill...for all the JESUS stuff you do...
holler at `em...



in case ya` didn`t know, the "psalms" were written by david as "songs" to the LORD...although some were written by Asaph , Solomon , Moses , and the sons of Korah ...david, like them, was chosen to speak for our LORD and the GOD given inspirations are the psalms we read in our FATHER`S HOLY WORD, WORDS straight from our FATHER...the bible...
one of the things i like most about bill is his desire to write about the BEAUTIFUL WORDS of our GOD ALMIGHTY...he`s written about various people of the bible,books of the bible and stories of the personal favorites are the ones he`s written as "tribute to the psalms"...

i`d say my personal favorite of his Psalm poems would be this one....i can just see Bill leaping a wall and landing in the clover...
On Psalm 18

I love You Lord for You are my strength,
And I know You will go to the longest length,
To save me from all who want to devour,
And present me in heaven in the final hour.

In desperate trouble to You I called,
And even through your temple walled,
You heard my voice and undertook,
Redemption as I sat and shook.

In Your anger the earth did quake,
And dragon like smoke You did make,
With fire and brimstone falling down,
My enemies were soon not found.

The waters rose and I nearly drowned,
When my Saviour came so brilliant crowned,
Lifting me from that watery grave,
To a mountain top and nice warm cave.

You are the flint that lights my lamp,
And with your help I raise a ramp,
That lets me leap the whole wall over,
And lands me safe in fields of clover.

I may not be a king all crowned,
But You have led me to Your Holy ground,
And showed me Jesus waiting there,
Who keeps me from pain and dark despair.

So to Your name all praise we sing,
From lowly slave to mighty king,
We can all rejoice because we know,
Your mighty love to us You show.

 On Psalm 1
To have the blessing of man and God,
We must be careful where our feet have trod,
By taking truth from those who know it not,
Nor listening to those who sin and scorn a lot.
But we must think both night and day,
On all the things our Lord has to say,
Then will we be like a well watered tree,
Prospering as our fruit becomes plain to see.
The unjust will be reduced to wind blown chaff,
And with our God we shall have the last laugh,
As they on judgement day will fail to stand,
Being banished with their satanic leader from our land.


there`s something about an old tractor that i find interesting...Bill likes `em too...for a closer look at his life in New Zealand, check out this page and see a story about Bill and...

 On Psalm 2
The signs are seen again today,
Of a raging people who wish to say,
Let us with our leaders break God's yoke,
Scorning good while at evil we laugh and joke.
But He who sits on heavens throne.
Will laugh until at last they moan,
When they have felt His sore displeasure,
And have been completely broken at His leisure.
For He who has set His Son on high,
Having full dominion over land and sky,
So serve the Lord you earthly kings,
And you will know the peace and blessings that He brings.


the LOVEly couple shown here in this photograph is William and Pamela Smith...on their 40th wedding anniversary...whatta` beautiful pair of LOVEbirds!
GOD bless you two, who HE made one!

 On Psalm 3
Lord your people are troubled again this day,
And the enemy says you do not hear when we pray,
But we know we do not depart your love,
And you see everything from your home above.
We will cry out loudly with our voice,
And you will save us as Your choice,
For you are a shield for all who choose,
When we trust in Jesus we cannot lose.
And from your rest we awaken without one fear,
When you have put ten thousand to the spear,
Knowing salvation is with our God,
And we will bless the ground that you have trod,

 On Psalm 4
I have called O Lord and now I wait and listen,
Because You set me free with all my sins forgiven,
For an answer to my prayers that all men might see,
That is possible for mere men to commune  with thee.
I give to you the sacrifice of praise,
And sing aloud through endless days,
Of the gladness and the joy,
When I first knew I was your adopted boy.
And when the food supply is running low,
Help me in gladness to others show,
That man does not live on bread alone,
But peace and sleep come from what Christ did atone.

On Psalm 5
Hear my voice my God and king,
For in the morning it is to You I bring,
My prayers and thanks for what You have done,
Knowing You alone are the Holy One.
You are not a God in whom evil dwell,
Those wicked liars will all be guests of hell's
Along with bloody and deceitful men,
You will banish to the their satanic den.
But let all of those that trust in thee,
Shout with joy and romp with glee,
For you bless the righteous and defend,
All those who repent and make amends.

 On Psalm 6
Be not angry with me my Lord,
For I cannot face Your heaven's horde,
Have mercy on me that I may show,
Your greatness is for all to know.
How long O Lord do I need to wait,
In tears and in dire straight,
To see your deliverance from my plight,
Of anguish and groanings throoghout this night.
But now I know you have heard my prayer,
And your salvation is growing near,
When our enemies will see their shame,
Knowing that I was not to blame .

 On Psalm 7
Lord, my God it is to you I look,
To let me pass safely o'er the brook.
My opponents do not come at me with swords,
But hide in the chat clubs and daily message boards.
Today they come to tear down truth,
As they sit in a little computor booth,
And praise the name of a satanic god,
A wooden (or plastic) headed , lifeless clod.
Lord I know that Your coming  is near,
And many are lost in hopeless despair.
I do not lie with David in a cave,
But listen daily to the heathen rave.
Give us a heart as Your man of old,
Give us those riches that are better than gold,
Give us a tune that will calm the souls,
Of those under the spells of the devil's goals.
We give You the praise that is Your due,
We leave the enemy to sit and stew,
As he hides from the name and from Jesus blood,
Remembering the power of that crimson flood.

 On Psalm 8
How glorious is the name of our risen Lord,
Even little children proclaim with one accord,
And the stars of heaven that his fingers made,
Give us hope when faith does wain and fade.
In comparison to You we are so small,
It is a wonder that You care for us at all,
And the Son of man You exalt above,
All that You have made in love.
You gave to man the right to rule,
Over beast and bird and fish and mule,
And for this we can give You nought but thanks,
As we worship You from plains and banks

my friend jenny lives nearby in scenic ravenden...she sends me JESUS stuff all the she sent me this delightful to read...

 On Psalm 9
With all my will and heart I praise,
To the Lord on high my voice I raise,
For righteous upon Your throne You judge,
And from Your truth You never budge.
From my enemies You have set me free,
For those who hate me also hate thee,
And by their own hands are they snared,
Into the the traps they once for me prepared.
Give me the words to sing Your great works,
When You answer the poor and needy from their kirks,
And the nations of the world are swept away,
Their ruined cities no more over me hold sway.
Then will the righteous rejoice,
And sing in unison with one voice,
How great is He who made all things,
And mighty is the salvation that He brings..

 On Psalm 10
The ungodly appear as bad today,
As they did in this Psalm of David's day,
And wicked men think that God is away,
Not coming back, or so they pray.
The greedy man they do exalt,
But from all things good this horse does bolt,
In this world they seem to succeed,
But Your laws they never heed.
Some murder and seek all to kill,
While others scheme plots worse still,
For by usury, interest and legal theft,
Make the poor man completely bereft.
Now we are sure that You will not tarry,
But will come back soon and all evil carry,
To that lake of flaming fire,
Where all evil You will retire.

one day i was feeling
kinda` down...
it does happen sometimes...

i found a "wink from GOD" so to cheered me right up...PRAISE GOD!

that i was a little blue, but apparently wanted to send me a brotherly the form of a poem he here to see...

 On Psalm 11
In God we trust so says the coin,
All others pay cash the fools rejoin,
But we do not flee like a mountain bird,
Protection without God is quite absurd,
From the thrones of heaven God sees all,
And all the sins of the wicked he will recall.
The good in time He will reward,
But evil men face the two edged sword.
The Lord's righteousness and justice can be seen,
As He spread out His arms - the cross between.
No greater love is shown to man,
Than to send a Son in salvations van.


 On Psalm 12
Lord it appears that I alone am left,
Hiding here in the mountains cleft.
No sign of truth is seen anymore,
But all are lies to deceive the law.
Though Your word tells me many more still stand,
I cannot see them in this land,
But I await to see your power,
Save the poor with a mighty shower.
With Your perfect, purified word,
We are safe because Your shield we gird,
And on our head salvation's hat,
Shows our foes what we are getting at.


 On Psalm 13
How long is a piece of string we ask today,
When wondering if our God is near or far away,
How long must I worry, how long do I pray,
To win this battle on salvation's way?
My enemy may win a battle but what of the war,
At the sight of my Saviour he will bow down in awe,
And then with my voice I shout and sing,
As praise for my Lord my tribute I bring.

Psalm 14

Fools still say  'there is no God' but why?
With evidence in land and sea and sky,
And God looking down from high above,
Hoping to find someone to understand His love.

Finds no one to do His special bidding,
All are liars, joking and kidding,
That God is deaf or does not know,
What they are doing or how they go.

But our God comes to protect the poor,
While knocking plainly at thr heathens door.
Victory comes to Jacobs sons,
And praise is delivered to Holy Ones.

 On Psalm 15

Who may live O Lord in Your holy place?
None except those with clean hands and hidden face,
And those made innocent by the work of Your Son,
Planned by You before time had begun.

Speak the truth from your inner heart,
Do not mingle with brazen ungodly tarts,
Gossip not and hate no neighbor,
Charge not interest but honour labour.

Do all that you know you should,
Hate all evil and love all good,
Honour those who love the Lord,
Stay bound to Him by His sweet cord.

 On Psalm 16

I acknowledge Lord all good from you comes,
As You stand before me like those mighty gums,
Pronoucing joy and peace to godley men,
And judgement for evil by Your pen.

That writes a record every day,
Of those who will to idols pray,
But to those who follow along Your way,
Jesus has taken all sin away.

Now I rejoice and I am glad,
My future with You  my heavenly dad,
For You will not leave me in the grave,
To groan and moan and rant and rave.

 On Psalm 17
Hear my voice O Lord I pray,
Listen to me on this very day,
Search me and find a man for your heart,
Don't make me sorrow, don't make me smart.
I call to You my God and king,
For You are wonderful as praise I bring,
Hide me under Your wings shelter,
No more to roam helter-skelter.
All around my enemies close,
Like devouring lions the likes of those,
Of Daniels day that You did make,
To sleep the night for salvations sake.

On Psalm 18

I love You Lord for You are my strength,
And I know You will go to the longest length,
To save me from all who want to devour,
And present me in heaven in the final hour.

In desperate trouble to You I called,
And even through your temple walled,
You heard my voice and undertook,
Redemption as I sat and shook.

In Your anger the earth did quake,
And dragon like smoke You did make,
With fire and brimstone falling down,
My enemies were soon not found.

The waters rose and I nearly drowned,
When my Saviour came so brilliant crowned,
Lifting me from that watery grave,
To a mountain top and nice warm cave.

You are the flint that lights my lamp,
And with your help I raise a ramp,
That lets me leap the whole wall over,
And lands me safe in fields of clover.

I may not be a king all crowned,
But You have led me to Your Holy ground,
And showed me Jesus waiting there,
Who keeps me from pain and dark despair.

So to Your name all praise we sing,
From lowly slave to mighty king,
We can all rejoice because we know,
Your mighty love to us You show.

On Psalm 19

We see in the heavens a show of Your glory,
The stars and the moon they tell us Your story,
All over the earth not one place to hide,
From what You have made both out and inside.

Just as the sun rises in the east each day,
So has Your word come to us to stay,
And to teach what is right and how You are good,
To show us the reward when we do as we should.

Keep me from the sins of pride,
Safe from doubt and free inside,
That I may please You is my dream,
Through endless days my only theme.

On Psalm 20

May the Lord be near you all the time,
And your faith in Him forever shine,
May He answer all your prayers,
That you may worship Him for years and years.

May the Lord let His face shine upon you,
May the Lord do for you what you for others do,
May the Lord answer you from heaven,
With His love that is free from leaven.

Though some may trust in racing cars and others in their engines,
We will trust in Lord on high and leave Him to His vengenence,
They may win a race one day but coming up the next,
Will be thrown on the scrapheap never lasting like this text.

On Psalm 21

Is it not good when our leaders believe?
Their strength from the Lord they justly receive.
Their victories are marvelous no matter the odds,
For from morning to night in Your footsteps they've trod.

When You appear Your fiery lake,
Will swallow whole those who make.
All your children to partake,
In evil plans disguised as cake

check out this passage written
 by david from the
Holy Bible
1 Chronicles 29
10   Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever.
11   Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
12   Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
13   Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.
14   But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.

On Psalm 22

David looked ahead as we look back,
Seeing clearly then those things we lack,
As he saw his Lord raised up on high,
And from His mouth came that plaintive cry.

He saw Christ's seperation from the fold,
As all our sins He bore on hold,
And while the sinners stood and mocked,
The life slipped out of God's priest unfrocked.

The hungry he had fed and still,
They crucified Him because God's will,
Had found one man to stand for all,
To redeem those cursed in Adam's fall.

They broke not bone but to His side,
A spear was thrust that opened wide,
A gash from which blood and water flowed,
A crimson tide of love it showed.

Then lots were drawn to see who would win,
Homespun tunic and other garments thin,
While up above my saviour died,
And I with others stood back and cried.

But David did not see what happened next,
For I did not see it written in the text,
But in the gospels it is clearly told,
Jesus from the grave rose bold.

By Jonah's stay within the whale,
We get the time of Christ in gaol,
But no tomb of death could Him hold,
And by these facts my faith is told.

  On Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want,
He cleanses my soul through His crimson font,
In His pastures green I am often seen,
And He rewards me well when I am not mean.

Though I walk through the valley of the dead,
I keep His helmut upon my head,
And in my hands are His shield and sword,
With all my soul I believe His word.

You give to me the oil of joy,
And at your table I am the honoured boy,
While all around my enemies die,
I will dwell with You in heaven's sky.

On Psalm 24

The earth is the Lord's so this Psalm says,
But this is not always acknowledged by our peers,
Though He it was who created them,
To shine their lights like a sparkling gem.

The question is "Who before Him can stand?"
The answer is those with a pure heart and clean hands,
Or have not accused the innocent of doing wrong,
They shall stand and be blessed for being strong.

Be opened up O eastern gate,
And golden door you have reached the date,
When the Lord of glory will enter in,
And a new reign on earth is about to begin.

On Psalm 25

Lord You know that I gave myself to Thee,
In return Lord do not let my enemies laugh at me,
For all who hate me hate You too,
And this is their sin, they have no clue.

They would not listen to Your ways,
But played the fool for endless days.
I will learn of Your mercy and Your love,
And search for ever for the coming of Your dove.

I have sinned and hereby repent,
And receive by faith Your message sent.
Save Israel from all her trouble,
That we may return to You right at the double.


 On Psalm 26

Search me, judge me, find me not wanting,
Keep me, restore me for I am all longing,
To come close to You and learn of Your ways,
Reward me with wages that only heaven pays.

Help me when my feet wander far from your path,
Turn me and guide me, soak me in Your bath,
Wash me  till I am whiter than snow,
Let my countenence show that my Lord I do know.

Now as the time comes and my life is near over,
Let me stand in Your congregation, Your fields of clover,
And gather me amongst the sheep of Your fold,
Then take me back with You to Your city of gold.

On Psalm 27

As the Lord is my light He will show the way,
His salvation has come and it is here to stay.
There is no one to fear who is greater than He,
My shield, my protector, the champion of me.

His temple I desire to be my home,
The book of His word my only tome.
My dwelling place within His sight,
Where I may delight in His majestic might.

There I will sing and praise His name,
My joy complete, my Saviour not tame,
For He heals the sick, the blind the lame,
My rock, my redeemer, my provider, the same.

I wait to hear You answer my prayers,
Some may take minutes, some take years,
But you know what is best for me,
So I put all my trust and hope in thee.

 On Psalm 28

Hear my prayers O God my rock,
Let me examine my life, help me take stock,
Answer me least I also go to the well,
That leads to destruction at the gates of hell.

Reward me Lord for I have believed,
In the face of information often received,
From men who claim to know of it all,
But where will they be when their life You recall.

Break the chains that bind all the lost,
Help us to save them regardless of cost,
For You have spent Your only dear Son,
And through Him we know the victory is won.

 On Psalm 29

Lord as we give You the glory I wonder why?
In this psalm of the Unicorn did David try?
To see from afar You speak to the sea,
When the wind and the waves give honour to thee.

Salvation came at the sound of your voice,
That brought into being the worlds of Your choice,
So what are a few trees , young bulls or flames fire,
When we know that Your praise is our only desire.

 On Psalm 30
David, like Paul, called the saints to sing,
And unto God's presence thanksgiving to bring.
Sorrow may last for the night but O for the joy,
That comes in the morning like a childs new toy.
Let me live to praise thee my Lord,
Let me stand before You at the head of a horde,
Of dancers and singers whose mourning is gone,
Because of the work of atonement wrought by Your Son.

 On Psalm 31

In Thee O lord do I put my trust,
To know Your will with me is a must.
Even from the grave do You keep me safe,
For I was a lost and hopeless waif.

My enemies nets are cast about,
To trip me up and keep me out,
Of the glories of Your kingdom I love to shout,
And in the face of unbelievers my faith I tout.

For Your mercy Lord I pray each day,
And rejoice greatly for Your deliverence here to stay.
Make Thy face shine upon me and give me Your peace,
My brothers, my sisters, my children, my nephews, my neice.

May they all assemble before Thee in heavens array,
And praise You forever as they follow Your way,
May they eat of the fruit of the tree of dear life,
As they walk by Your river with no tears and no strife.

 On Psalm 32

Blessing upon blessing so starts this song,
For those who have forgivness for sin and for wrong,
I sweated and ached until at last I did cry,
A confession of sin with a tear in my eye.

I hide in the rock and a new song I sing,
And listen to the instructions that Your words bring,
I place the bit and the bridle of my life's control,
Into Your hands to guide me, spirit, mind, body and soul.


1 Samuel 17
44   And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.
45   Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.
46   This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
47   And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD's, and he will give you into our hands.
48   And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.
49   And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.
50   So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.
51   Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.

On Psalm 33

  Musicians  and singers it is time to rejoice,
Come together for the 'jam' of heavens choice, 
And praise God for all He has done,
His creation of earth, of moon and of sun.

A promise is given to the nations that follows,
The guidance of God over mountains and hollows,
And as he looks down from heaven and watches our kings,
He searches for men to trust in His things.

On Psalm 34

To magnify the Lord is my pleasure,
For he delivers my soul to His land of leisure,
And as we look upon Him we are not ashamed,
For he has calmed the sea and the wind He has tamed.

O taste and see that the Lord is good,
To all that love Him and obey like they should,
That keep their tongues from evil and their lips from guile,
As they depart from evil and seek peace all the while.

And at this time David saw his Lord crossed up,
They crucified him after He had drunk the last supper cup,
That would represent His blood that flowed for all,
But they broke not bone this psalm recalls.

 On Psalm 35

Lord You are my advocate, lawyer and friend,
You will justify my faith in You in the end,
You will tell my soul of Your salvation,
When You come to rule over every nation.

The traps my enemies try to spring,
Will return to them the evil they bring,
They mock me and say that You don't exist,
But where will they be when the death knife does twist.

Judge me by Your righteousness for I have none myself,
But take away all of the pleasures and all of the wealth,
Of those who honour not You nor think of the day,
When the fires of perdition will burn them away.

 On Psalm 36
The sinful man has this to say,
He fears not God nor does he pray,
He spends all day in mischief and plans,
The downfall of good men and the removal of bans.
But all he can do is lead others astray,
And keep them from following God's chosen way,
While good men are tucked under the shadow of wing,
And are safe from corruption when praises they bring.
To the fountain of life, to the foot of the throne,
While the evil in hell just shrivel and groan,
With no way to join them with a deep ditch between,
The good and the evil together not seen.

my friend
Ron is blessed
with a knack for
finding JESUS stuff...
he found this "song" and
posted it on a board i

 On Psalm 37
Don't fret about this world's evil actions,
Caused by those with unholy factions,
For they will be cut down like new mown hay,
And wither until their life gives way.
But those who upon our Lord do wait,
Pass through to join beyond wicker gate,
All the meek to whom this earth is given,
Once all crime and sin are from it driven.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
And he is delightfully presented to the board,
But if by chance he stumbles he will not be dismissed,
For he has been redeemed and by his saviour kissed.

On Psalm 38 
 a Psalm of William
to Sean Shannon Collier
Downtrodden, forgotten, not many friends,
Wounded and sick and close to life's ends?
Weak and hungry, fearful of those,
Who would take all you had - leave only your toes.
Deaf, blind and dumb, have nothing to say?
No one to guide you safe in life's way?
When you have reached the bottom there is only one way to go,
Repent and forever God's glory you will show.

JESUS stuff



Psalm 1
1   Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2   But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3   And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4   The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5   Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6   For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psalm 2
1   Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2   The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3   Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4   He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.
5   Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6   Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7   I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8   Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9   Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10   Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11   Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12   Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Psalm 3
1   Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
2   Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
3   But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
4   I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
5   I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
6   I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
7   Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8   Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

Psalm 4
1   Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
2   O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
3   But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
4   Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
5   Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
6   There be many that say, Who will shew us any good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
7   Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.
8   I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

Psalm 5
1   Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
2   Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.
3   My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
4   For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.
5   The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
6   Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
7   But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
8   Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
9   For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.
10   Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.
11   But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
12   For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

Psalm 6
1   O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
2   Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
3   My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?
4   Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
5   For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
6   I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
7   Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
8   Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9   The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.
10   Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.

Psalm 7
1   O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:
2   Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
3   O LORD my God, If I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;
4   If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
5   Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.
6   Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.
7   So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.
8   The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.
9   Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
10   My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.
11   God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
12   If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
13   He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
14   Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
15   He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
16   His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
17   I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.

Psalm 8
1   O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
2   Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
3   When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
4   What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
5   For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
6   Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
7   All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8   The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
9   O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Psalm 9
1   I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.
2   I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.
3   When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
4   For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.
5   Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
6   O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.
7   But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.
8   And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
9   The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
10   And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
11   Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
12   When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
13   Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:
14   That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.
15   The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
16   The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
17   The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
18   For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
19   Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
20   Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.

Psalm 10
1   Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?
2   The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.
3   For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.
4   The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
5   His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
6   He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.
7   His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.
8   He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.
9   He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.
10   He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
11   He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it.
12   Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.
13   Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it.
14   Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.
15   Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none.
16   The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.
17   LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
18   To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.

Psalm 11
1   In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?
2   For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.
3   If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
4   The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD's throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
5   The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
6   Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
7   For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.

Psalm 12
1   Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
2   They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
3   The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:
4   Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?
5   For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.
6   The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7   Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
8   The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.

Psalm 13
1   How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
2   How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
3   Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
4   Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
5   But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
6   I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

Psalm 14
1   The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
2   The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
3   They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
4   Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.
5   There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.
6   Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.
7   Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

Psalm 15
1   Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
2   He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
3   He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
4   In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
5   He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

Psalm 16
1   Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
2   O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;
3   But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
4   Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.
5   The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.
6   The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
7   I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
8   I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9   Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
10   For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
11   Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalm 17
1   Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.
2   Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.
3   Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
4   Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
5   Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
6   I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.
7   Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.
8   Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
9   From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
10   They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
11   They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;
12   Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
13   Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
14   From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
15   As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

Psalm 18
1   I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
2   The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
3   I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
4   The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.
5   The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.
6   In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
7   Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.
8   There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
9   He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.
10   And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.
11   He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.
12   At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.
13   The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.
14   Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.
15   Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.
16   He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.
17   He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.
18   They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.
19   He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
20   The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
21   For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.
22   For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.
23   I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.
24   Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
25   With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;
26   With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.
27   For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.
28   For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
29   For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
30   As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
31   For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?
32   It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
33   He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places.
34   He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
35   Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.
36   Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
37   I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
38   I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.
39   For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
40   Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.
41   They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.
42   Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.
43   Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.
44   As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.
45   The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.
46   The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
47   It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.
48   He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.
49   Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.
50   Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.

Psalm 19
1   The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2   Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3   There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4   Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5   Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6   His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7   The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8   The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9   The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
10   More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11   Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12   Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13   Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14   Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalm 20
1   The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
2   Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;
3   Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.
4   Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
5   We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.
6   Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
7   Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
8   They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
9   Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.

Psalm 21
1   The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
2   Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.
3   For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.
4   He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.
5   His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.
6   For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.
7   For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.
8   Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.
9   Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
10   Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
11   For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.
12   Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.
13   Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.

Psalm 22
1   My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
2   O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
3   But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
4   Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
5   They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
6   But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
7   All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
8   He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
9   But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.
10   I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.
11   Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.
12   Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
13   They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
14   I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
15   My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
16   For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
17   I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
18   They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
19   But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me.
20   Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
21   Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
22   I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
23   Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.
24   For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
25   My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.
26   The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.
27   All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
28   For the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the nations.
29   All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
30   A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
31   They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

Psalm 23
1   The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2   He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3   He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4   Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5   Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6   Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Psalm 24
1   The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
2   For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
3   Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4   He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5   He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6   This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
7   Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8   Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
9   Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10   Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

Psalm 25
1   Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
2   O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
3   Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
4   Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
5   Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
6   Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.
7   Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.
8   Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
9   The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
10   All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
11   For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.
12   What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
13   His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
14   The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
15   Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
16   Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
17   The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.
18   Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
19   Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
20   O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
21   Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
22   Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

Psalm 26
1   Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.
2   Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
3   For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.
4   I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.
5   I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.
6   I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:
7   That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
8   LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
9   Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:
10   In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
11   But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
12   My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.

Psalm 27
1   The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2   When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3   Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
4   One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
5   For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
6   And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
7   Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
8   When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
9   Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10   When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
11   Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
12   Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
13   I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
14   Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

Psalm 29
1   Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
2   Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
3   The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.
4   The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.
5   The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
6   He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
7   The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.
8   The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
9   The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.
10   The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever.
11   The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.

Psalm 30
1   I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
2   O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
3   O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
4   Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
5   For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
6   And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
7   LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
8   I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.
9   What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
10   Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.
11   Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
12   To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

Psalm 31
1   In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.
2   Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.
3   For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.
4   Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.
5   Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.
6   I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD.
7   I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
8   And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.
9   Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.
10   For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
11   I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me.
12   I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.
13   For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.
14   But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God.
15   My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.
16   Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake.
17   Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.
18   Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
19   Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!
20   Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
21   Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.
22   For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.
23   O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
24   Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

Psalm 32
1   Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
2   Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
3   When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
4   For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
5   I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
6   For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
7   Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
8   I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
9   Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
10   Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.
11   Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

Psalm 33
1   Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.
2   Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.
3   Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
4   For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.
5   He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.
6   By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
7   He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.
8   Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
9   For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.
10   The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
11   The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
12   Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
13   The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.
14   From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
15   He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.
16   There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
17   An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
18   Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
19   To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
20   Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
21   For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
22   Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

Psalm 34
1   I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2   My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
3   O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4   I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5   They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
6   This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
7   The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
8   O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
9   O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.
10   The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.
11   Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12   What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13   Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
14   Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
15   The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
16   The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17   The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
18   The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19   Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
20   He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
21   Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
22   The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

Psalm 35
1   Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.
2   Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
3   Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
4   Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
5   Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them.
6   Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.
7   For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.
8   Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.
9   And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation.
10   All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
11   False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.
12   They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.
13   But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
14   I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.
15   But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not:
16   With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
17   Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions.
18   I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.
19   Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
20   For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.
21   Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.
22   This thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.
23   Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
24   Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
25   Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.
26   Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me.
27   Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
28   And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.

Psalm 36
1   The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.
2   For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
3   The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good.
4   He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.
5   Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.
6   Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
7   How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
8   They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
9   For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.
10   O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
11   Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
12   There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.

Psalm 37
1   Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
2   For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3   Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4   Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5   Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6   And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7   Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8   Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9   For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
10   For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
11   But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12   The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
13   The LORD shall 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 cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
15   Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
16   A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
17   For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
18   The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
19   They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20   But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
21   The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
22   For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
23   The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
24   Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
25   I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
26   He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
27   Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
28   For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
29   The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
30   The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
31   The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
32   The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
33   The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
34   Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
35   I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
36   Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37   Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
38   But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
39   But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
40   And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

Psalm 38
1   O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
2   For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.
3   There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.
4   For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
5   My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.
6   I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.
7   For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh.
8   I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.
9   Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.
10   My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
11   My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.
12   They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.
13   But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.
14   Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.
15   For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
16   For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.
17   For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.
18   For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
19   But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
20   They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.
21   Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.
22   Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
