Psalms 2
1
Why do the nations conspire[a]
and the peoples plot in vain?

2 The kings of the earth rise up
and the rulers band together
against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,

3 “Let us break their chains
and throw off their shackles.”

3

Psalms 1
1
Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,

2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.

3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.

ten thousand at your right hand,

O God, why have you rejected us forever?
Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture?

the people of your inheritance, whom you redeemed—
Mount Zion, where you dwelt.

3 Turn your steps toward these everlasting ruins,
all this destruction the enemy has brought on the sanctuary.

to those who are pure in heart.

1

Psalms 79

1

O God, the nations have invaded your inheritance;
they have defiled your holy temple,
they have reduced Jerusalem to rubble.

2 They have left the dead bodies of your servants
as food for the birds of the sky,
the flesh of your own people for the animals of the wild.

3 They have poured out blood like water
all around Jerusalem,
and there is no one to bury the dead.

4 We are objects of contempt to our neighbors,
of scorn and derision to those around us.

4

Psalms 78

1

My people, hear my teaching;
listen to the words of my mouth.

2 I will open my mouth with a parable;
I will utter hidden things, things from of old—

3 things we have heard and known,
things our ancestors have told us.

4 We will not hide them from their descendants;
we will tell the next generation
the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord,
his power, and the wonders he has done.

5 He decreed statutes for Jacob
and established the law in Israel,
which he commanded our ancestors
to teach their children,

6 so the next generation would know them,
even the children yet to be born,
and they in turn would tell their children.

7 Then they would put their trust in God
and would not forget his deeds
but would keep his commands.

8 They would not be like their ancestors—
a stubborn and rebellious generation,
whose hearts were not loyal to God,
whose spirits were not faithful to him.

8

Psalms 82

1

God presides in the great assembly;

for I am poor and needy.

2 Guard my life, for I am faithful to you;
save your servant who trusts in you.
You are my God;

3 have mercy on me, Lord,
for I call to you all day long.

4 Bring joy to your servant, Lord,
for I put my trust in you.

4

Psalms 90

1

Lord, you have been our dwelling place
throughout all generations.

2 Before the mountains were born
or you brought forth the whole world,

2

Psalms 91

9

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,

10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

13

Psalms 93

5

Your statutes, Lord, stand firm;

for endless days.

2

Psalms 94

8

Take notice, you senseless ones among the people;
you fools, when will you become wise?

9 Does he who fashioned the ear not hear?
Does he who formed the eye not see?

10 Does he who disciplines nations not punish?
Does he who teaches mankind lack knowledge?

11 The Lord knows all human plans;
he knows that they are futile.

11

Psalms 96

4

For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
he is to be feared above all gods.

5 For all the gods of the nations are idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.

6 Splendor and majesty are before him;
strength and glory are in his sanctuary.

6

Psalms 95

6

Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;

and the villages of Judah are glad
because of your judgments, Lord.

9 For you, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth;
you are exalted far above all gods.

10 Let those who love the Lord hate evil,
for he guards the lives of his faithful ones
and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.

11 Light shines[ca] on the righteous
and joy on the upright in heart.

12 Rejoice in the Lord, you who are righteous,
and praise his holy name.

12

Psalms 105

5

Remember the wonders he has done,
his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,

6 you his servants, the descendants of Abraham,
his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.

7 He is the Lord our God;
his judgments are in all the earth.

7

Psalms 104

2

The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment;
he stretches out the heavens like a tent

3 and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters.
He makes the clouds his chariot
and rides on the wings of the wind.

4 He makes winds his messengers,[cb]
flames of fire his servants.

4

Psalms 99

6

Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
Samuel was among those who called on his name;
they called on the Lord
and he answered them.

7 He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;
they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.

7

Psalms 98

1

Sing to the Lord a new song,
for he has done marvelous things;
his right hand and his holy arm
have worked salvation for him.

2 The Lord has made his salvation known
and revealed his righteousness to the nations.

3 He has remembered his love
and his faithfulness to Israel;
all the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation of our God.

I will sing of your love and justice;
to you, Lord, I will sing praise.

come before him with joyful songs.

3 Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his[cc] ;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

3

Psalms 107

4

Some wandered in desert wastelands,
finding no way to a city where they could settle.

5 They were hungry and thirsty,
and their lives ebbed away.

6 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.

7 He led them by a straight way
to a city where they could settle.

8 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for mankind,

9 for he satisfies the thirsty
and fills the hungry with good things.

9

Psalms 106

1

Praise the Lord.[cd]
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.

1

Psalms 109

1

My God, whom I praise,
do not remain silent,

2 for people who are wicked and deceitful
have opened their mouths against me;
they have spoken against me with lying tongues.

3 With words of hatred they surround me;
they attack me without cause.

4 In return for my friendship they accuse me,
but I am a man of prayer.

5 They repay me evil for good,
and hatred for my friendship.

5

Psalms 103

1

Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.

2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—

3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,

4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,

5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

5

Psalms 43

5

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.

1 [cg]

Praise the Lord.[ch]
I will extol the Lord with all my heart
in the council of the upright and in the assembly.

1

2

Great are the works of the Lord;
they are pondered by all who delight in them.

3 Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures forever.

4 He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and compassionate.

5 He provides food for those who fear him;
he remembers his covenant forever.

5

Psalms 110

1

The Lord says to my lord:[ci]
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet.”

1

Psalms 112

2

Their children will be mighty in the land;
the generation of the upright will be blessed.

who conduct their affairs with justice.

6

The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all the oppressed.

6

Psalms 108

1

[cj]A song. A psalm of David.

Psalms 109

6

Appoint someone evil to oppose my enemy;
let an accuser stand at his right hand.

7 When he is tried, let him be found guilty,
and may his prayers condemn him.

8 May his days be few;
may another take his place of leadership.

9 May his children be fatherless
and his wife a widow.

10 May his children be wandering beggars;
may they be driven[ck] from their ruined homes.

11 May a creditor seize all he has;
may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.

12 May no one extend kindness to him
or take pity on his fatherless children.

13 May his descendants be cut off,
their names blotted out from the next generation.

14 May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the Lord;
may the sin of his mother never be blotted out.

15 May their sins always remain before the Lord,
that he may blot out their name from the earth.

15

Psalms 106

2

Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the Lord
or fully declare his praise?

3 Blessed are those who act justly,
who always do what is right.

3

Psalms 107

10

Some sat in darkness, in utter darkness,
prisoners suffering in iron chains,

11 because they rebelled against God’s commands
and despised the plans of the Most High.

12 So he subjected them to bitter labor;
they stumbled, and there was no one to help.

13 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he saved them from their distress.

14 He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness,
and broke away their chains.

15 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for mankind,

16 for he breaks down gates of bronze
and cuts through bars of iron.

16

Psalms 100

4

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.

5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.

5

Psalms 101

2 I will be careful to lead a blameless life—
when will you come to me?

I will conduct the affairs of my house
with a blameless heart.
Psalms 98

4

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth,
burst into jubilant song with music;

5 make music to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of singing,

6 with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn—
shout for joy before the Lord, the King.

6

Psalms 99

8

Lord our God,
you answered them;
you were to Israel a forgiving God,
though you punished their misdeeds.[cl]

9 Exalt the Lord our God
and worship at his holy mountain,
for the Lord our God is holy.

9

Psalms 102

1

Hear my prayer, Lord;
let my cry for help come to you.

2 Do not hide your face from me
when I am in distress.
Turn your ear to me;
when I call, answer me quickly.

2

Psalms 104

5

He set the earth on its foundations;
it can never be moved.

6 You covered it with the watery depths as with a garment;
the waters stood above the mountains.

7 But at your rebuke the waters fled,
at the sound of your thunder they took to flight;

8 they flowed over the mountains,
they went down into the valleys,
to the place you assigned for them.

9 You set a boundary they cannot cross;
never again will they cover the earth.

9

Psalms 105

8

He remembers his covenant forever,
the promise he made, for a thousand generations,

9 the covenant he made with Abraham,
the oath he swore to Isaac.

10 He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree,
to Israel as an everlasting covenant:

11 “To you I will give the land of Canaan
as the portion you will inherit.”

11

Psalms 95

7 for he is our God
and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.

Today, if only you would hear his voice,

8 “Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah,[cm]
as you did that day at Massah[cn] in the wilderness,

9 where your ancestors tested me;
they tried me, though they had seen what I did.

10 For forty years I was angry with that generation;
I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go astray,
and they have not known my ways.’

11 So I declared on oath in my anger,
‘They shall never enter my rest.’”

11

Psalms 96

7

Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

8 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
bring an offering and come into his courts.

9 Worship the Lord in the splendor of his[co] holiness;
tremble before him, all the earth.

10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.”
The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved;
he will judge the peoples with equity.

10

Psalms 94

12

Blessed is the one you discipline, Lord,
the one you teach from your law;

13 you grant them relief from days of trouble,
till a pit is dug for the wicked.

14 For the Lord will not reject his people;
he will never forsake his inheritance.

15 Judgment will again be founded on righteousness,
and all the upright in heart will follow it.

15

Psalms 87

3

Glorious things are said of you,
city of God:[cp]

4 “I will record Rahab[cq] and Babylon
among those who acknowledge me—
Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush[cr]
and will say, ‘This one was born in Zion.’”[cs]

5 Indeed, of Zion it will be said,
“This one and that one were born in her,
and the Most High himself will establish her.”

6 The Lord will write in the register of the peoples:
“This one was born in Zion.”

6

Psalms 91

14

“Because he[ct] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”

16

Psalms 92

1

It is good to praise the Lord
and make music to your name, O Most High,

2 proclaiming your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night,

3 to the music of the ten-stringed lyre
and the melody of the harp.

3

Psalms 90

3

You turn people back to dust,
saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.”

4 A thousand years in your sight
are like a day that has just gone by,
or like a watch in the night.

5 Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death—
they are like the new grass of the morning:

6 In the morning it springs up new,
but by evening it is dry and withered.

6

Psalms 88

1

Lord, you are the God who saves me;
day and night I cry out to you.

2 May my prayer come before you;
turn your ear to my cry.

2

Psalms 86

5

You, Lord, are forgiving and good,
abounding in love to all who call to you.

6 Hear my prayer, Lord;
listen to my cry for mercy.

7 When I am in distress, I call to you,
because you answer me.

7

Psalms 85

1

You, Lord, showed favor to your land;
you restored the fortunes of Jacob.

2 You forgave the iniquity of your people
and covered all their sins.[cu]

3 You set aside all your wrath
and turned from your fierce anger.

3

Psalms 89

1

I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever;
with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known
through all generations.

2 I will declare that your love stands firm forever,
that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.

3 You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
I have sworn to David my servant,

4 ‘I will establish your line forever
and make your throne firm through all generations.’”[cv]

4

Psalms 82

2

“How long will you[cw] defend the unjust
and show partiality to the wicked?[cx]

3 Defend the weak and the fatherless;
uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.

4 Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

4

Psalms 75

1

We praise you, God,
we praise you, for your Name is near;
people tell of your wonderful deeds.

1

Psalms 81

1

Sing for joy to God our strength;
shout aloud to the God of Jacob!

2 Begin the music, strike the timbrel,
play the melodious harp and lyre.

2

Psalms 84

1

How lovely is your dwelling place,
Lord Almighty!

2 My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.

3 Even the sparrow has found a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
Lord Almighty, my King and my God.

4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
they are ever praising you.[cy]

4

Psalms 83

1

O God, do not remain silent;
do not turn a deaf ear,
do not stand aloof, O God.

2 See how your enemies growl,
how your foes rear their heads.

3 With cunning they conspire against your people;
they plot against those you cherish.

4 “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,
so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”

4

Psalms 78

9

The men of Ephraim, though armed with bows,
turned back on the day of battle;

10 they did not keep God’s covenant
and refused to live by his law.

11 They forgot what he had done,
the wonders he had shown them.

12 He did miracles in the sight of their ancestors
in the land of Egypt, in the region of Zoan.

13 He divided the sea and led them through;
he made the water stand up like a wall.

14 He guided them with the cloud by day
and with light from the fire all night.

15 He split the rocks in the wilderness
and gave them water as abundant as the seas;

16 he brought streams out of a rocky crag
and made water flow down like rivers.

16

Psalms 79

5

How long, Lord? Will you be angry forever?
How long will your jealousy burn like fire?

6 Pour out your wrath on the nations
that do not acknowledge you,
on the kingdoms
that do not call on your name;

7 for they have devoured Jacob
and devastated his homeland.

7

Psalms 80

1

Hear us, Shepherd of Israel,
you who lead Joseph like a flock.
You who sit enthroned between the cherubim,
shine forth

2 before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh.
Awaken your might;
come and save us.

2

Psalms 77

1

I cried out to God for help;
I cried out to God to hear me.

2 When I was in distress, I sought the Lord;
at night I stretched out untiring hands,
and I would not be comforted.

2

Psalms 76

1

God is renowned in Judah;
in Israel his name is great.

2 His tent is in Salem,
his dwelling place in Zion.

3 There he broke the flashing arrows,
the shields and the swords, the weapons of war.[cz]

3

Psalms 73

2

But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;
I had nearly lost my foothold.

3 For I envied the arrogant
when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

3

Psalms 72

3

May the mountains bring prosperity to the people,
the hills the fruit of righteousness.

4 May he defend the afflicted among the people
and save the children of the needy;
may he crush the oppressor.

5 May he endure[da] as long as the sun,
as long as the moon, through all generations.

6 May he be like rain falling on a mown field,
like showers watering the earth.

7 In his days may the righteous flourish
and prosperity abound till the moon is no more.

7

Psalms 74

4

Your foes roared in the place where you met with us;
they set up their standards as signs.

5 They behaved like men wielding axes
to cut through a thicket of trees.

6 They smashed all the carved paneling
with their axes and hatchets.

7 They burned your sanctuary to the ground;
they defiled the dwelling place of your Name.

8 They said in their hearts, “We will crush them completely!”
They burned every place where God was worshiped in the land.

8

Psalms 67

1

May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face shine on us—[db]

2 so that your ways may be known on earth,
your salvation among all nations.

2

Psalms 71

9

Do not cast me away when I am old;
do not forsake me when my strength is gone.

10 For my enemies speak against me;
those who wait to kill me conspire together.

11 They say, “God has forsaken him;
pursue him and seize him,
for no one will rescue him.”

12 Do not be far from me, my God;
come quickly, God, to help me.

13 May my accusers perish in shame;
may those who want to harm me
be covered with scorn and disgrace.

13

Psalms 69

1

Save me, O God,
for the waters have come up to my neck.

2 I sink in the miry depths,
where there is no foothold.
I have come into the deep waters;
the floods engulf me.

3 I am worn out calling for help;
my throat is parched.
My eyes fail,
looking for my God.

4 Those who hate me without reason
outnumber the hairs of my head;
many are my enemies without cause,
those who seek to destroy me.
I am forced to restore
what I did not steal.

4

Psalms 66

5

Come and see what God has done,
his awesome deeds for mankind!

6 He turned the sea into dry land,
they passed through the waters on foot—
come, let us rejoice in him.

7 He rules forever by his power,
his eyes watch the nations—
let not the rebellious rise up against him.

7

Psalms 65

1

Praise awaits[dc] you, our God, in Zion;
to you our vows will be fulfilled.

2 You who answer prayer,
to you all people will come.

3 When we were overwhelmed by sins,
you forgave[dd] our transgressions.

4 Blessed are those you choose
and bring near to live in your courts!
We are filled with the good things of your house,
of your holy temple.

4

Psalms 68

1

May God arise, may his enemies be scattered;
may his foes flee before him.

2 May you blow them away like smoke—
as wax melts before the fire,
may the wicked perish before God.

3 But may the righteous be glad
and rejoice before God;
may they be happy and joyful.

3

Psalms 64

1

Hear me, my God, as I voice my complaint;
protect my life from the threat of the enemy.

1

Psalms 63

1

You, God, are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
where there is no water.

1

Psalms 62

1

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.

2 Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

2

Psalms 61

1

Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.

1

Psalms 54

1

Save me, O God, by your name;
vindicate me by your might.

2 Hear my prayer, O God;
listen to the words of my mouth.

2

Psalms 52

1

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?

2 You who practice deceit,
your tongue plots destruction;
it is like a sharpened razor.

3 You love evil rather than good,
falsehood rather than speaking the truth.[de]

4 You love every harmful word,
you deceitful tongue!

4

Psalms 56

1

Be merciful to me, my God,
for my enemies are in hot pursuit;
all day long they press their attack.

2 My adversaries pursue me all day long;
in their pride many are attacking me.

2

Psalms 55

1

Listen to my prayer, O God,
do not ignore my plea;

2 hear me and answer me.
My thoughts trouble me and I am distraught

3 because of what my enemy is saying,
because of the threats of the wicked;
for they bring down suffering on me
and assail me in their anger.

3

Psalms 58

1

Do you rulers indeed speak justly?
Do you judge people with equity?

2 No, in your heart you devise injustice,
and your hands mete out violence on the earth.

2

Psalms 59

1

Deliver me from my enemies, O God;
be my fortress against those who are attacking me.

2 Deliver me from evildoers
and save me from those who are after my blood.

2

Psalms 50

7

“Listen, my people, and I will speak;
I will testify against you, Israel:
I am God, your God.

8 I bring no charges against you concerning your sacrifices
or concerning your burnt offerings, which are ever before me.

9 I have no need of a bull from your stall
or of goats from your pens,

10 for every animal of the forest is mine,
and the cattle on a thousand hills.

11 I know every bird in the mountains,
and the insects in the fields are mine.

12 If I were hungry I would not tell you,
for the world is mine, and all that is in it.

13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls
or drink the blood of goats?

13

Psalms 51

1

Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.

2 Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.

2

Psalms 49

1

Hear this, all you peoples;
listen, all who live in this world,

2 both low and high,
rich and poor alike:

3 My mouth will speak words of wisdom;
the meditation of my heart will give you understanding.

4 I will turn my ear to a proverb;
with the harp I will expound my riddle:

4

Psalms 48

1

Great is the Lord, and most worthy of praise,
in the city of our God, his holy mountain.

1

Psalms 29

3

The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.

4 The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is majestic.

5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.

6 He makes Lebanon leap like a calf,
Sirion[df] like a young wild ox.

7 The voice of the Lord strikes
with flashes of lightning.

8 The voice of the Lord shakes the desert;
the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.

9 The voice of the Lord twists the oaks[dg]
and strips the forests bare.
And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”

9

Psalms 47

1

Clap your hands, all you nations;
shout to God with cries of joy.

1

Psalms 46

1

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.

2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.[dh]

3

Psalms 45

1

My heart is stirred by a noble theme
as I recite my verses for the king;
my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.

1

Psalms 41

1

Blessed are those who have regard for the weak;
the Lord delivers them in times of trouble.

2 The Lord protects and preserves them—
they are counted among the blessed in the land—
he does not give them over to the desire of their foes.

3 The Lord sustains them on their sickbed
and restores them from their bed of illness.

3

Psalms 44

1

We have heard it with our ears, O God;
our ancestors have told us
what you did in their days,
in days long ago.

2 With your hand you drove out the nations
and planted our ancestors;
you crushed the peoples
and made our ancestors flourish.

3 It was not by their sword that they won the land,
nor did their arm bring them victory;
it was your right hand, your arm,
and the light of your face, for you loved them.

3

Psalms 39

1

I said, “I will watch my ways
and keep my tongue from sin;
I will put a muzzle on my mouth
while in the presence of the wicked.”

2 So I remained utterly silent,
not even saying anything good.
But my anguish increased;

3 my heart grew hot within me.
While I meditated, the fire burned;
then I spoke with my tongue:

3

Psalms 38

1

Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger
or discipline me in your wrath.

2 Your arrows have pierced me,
and your hand has come down on me.

3 Because of your wrath there is no health in my body;
there is no soundness in my bones because of my sin.

4 My guilt has overwhelmed me
like a burden too heavy to bear.

4

Psalms 37

1

Do not fret because of those who are evil
or be envious of those who do wrong;

2 for like the grass they will soon wither,
like green plants they will soon die away.

2

Psalms 35

4

May those who seek my life
be disgraced and put to shame;
may those who plot my ruin
be turned back in dismay.

5 May they be like chaff before the wind,
with the angel of the Lord driving them away;

6 may their path be dark and slippery,
with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.

6

Psalms 36

1

I have a message from God in my heart
concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:[di]
There is no fear of God
before their eyes.

1

Psalms 32

3

When I kept silent,
my bones wasted away
through my groaning all day long.

4 For day and night
your hand was heavy on me;
my strength was sapped
as in the heat of summer.[dj]

4

Psalms 33

10

The Lord foils the plans of the nations;
he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.

11 But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever,
the purposes of his heart through all generations.

11

Psalms 26

4

I do not sit with the deceitful,
nor do I associate with hypocrites.

5 I abhor the assembly of evildoers
and refuse to sit with the wicked.

6 I wash my hands in innocence,
and go about your altar, Lord,

7 proclaiming aloud your praise
and telling of all your wonderful deeds.

7

Psalms 27

2

When the wicked advance against me
to devour[dk] me,
it is my enemies and my foes
who will stumble and fall.

3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident.

3

Psalms 24

3

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?

4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not trust in an idol
or swear by a false god.[dl]

4

Psalms 28

3

Do not drag me away with the wicked,
with those who do evil,
who speak cordially with their neighbors
but harbor malice in their hearts.

4 Repay them for their deeds
and for their evil work;
repay them for what their hands have done
and bring back on them what they deserve.

4

Psalms 30

1

I will exalt you, Lord,
for you lifted me out of the depths
and did not let my enemies gloat over me.

2 Lord my God, I called to you for help,
and you healed me.

3 You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
you spared me from going down to the pit.

3

Psalms 23

5

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.

6

Psalms 20

1

May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.

2 May he send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.

3 May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.[dm]

4 May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.

Psalms 25

1

In you, Lord my God,
I put my trust.

1

Psalms 22

1

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from saving me,
so far from my cries of anguish?

2 My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer,
by night, but I find no rest.[dn]

2

Psalms 16

2

I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
apart from you I have no good thing.”

3 I say of the holy people who are in the land,
“They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”

4 Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more.
I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods
or take up their names on my lips.

4

Psalms 17

3

Though you probe my heart,
though you examine me at night and test me,
you will find that I have planned no evil;
my mouth has not transgressed.

4 Though people tried to bribe me,
I have kept myself from the ways of the violent
through what your lips have commanded.

5 My steps have held to your paths;
my feet have not stumbled.

5

Psalms 15

2

The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart;

3 whose tongue utters no slander,
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others;

4 who despises a vile person
but honors those who fear the Lord;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
and does not change their mind;

Psalms 14

1

The fool[do] says in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
there is no one who does good.

1

Psalms 13

1

How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?

2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?

2

Psalms 12

1

Help, Lord, for no one is faithful anymore;
those who are loyal have vanished from the human race.

2 Everyone lies to their neighbor;
they flatter with their lips
but harbor deception in their hearts.

2

Psalms 21

1

The king rejoices in your strength, Lord.
How great is his joy in the victories you give!

1

Psalms 19

1

The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.

3 They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.

4 Yet their voice[dp] goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.

5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.

6 It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.

6

Psalms 11

4

The Lord is in his holy temple;
the Lord is on his heavenly throne.
He observes everyone on earth;
his eyes examine them.

5 The Lord examines the righteous,
but the wicked, those who love violence,
he hates with a passion.

6 On the wicked he will rain
fiery coals and burning sulfur;
a scorching wind will be their lot.

6

Psalms 10

7

His mouth is full of lies and threats;
trouble and evil are under his tongue.

8 He lies in wait near the villages;
from ambush he murders the innocent.
His eyes watch in secret for his victims;

9 like a lion in cover he lies in wait.
He lies in wait to catch the helpless;
he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.

10 His victims are crushed, they collapse;
they fall under his strength.

11 He says to himself, “God will never notice;
he covers his face and never sees.”

11

Psalms 7

1

Lord my God, I take refuge in you;
save and deliver me from all who pursue me,

2 or they will tear me apart like a lion
and rip me to pieces with no one to rescue me.

2

Psalms 3

1

Lord, how many are my foes!
How many rise up against me!

2 Many are saying of me,
“God will not deliver him.”[dq]

2

Psalms 2

7 I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:

He said to me, “You are my son;
today I have become your father.

8 Ask me,
and I will make the nations your inheritance,
the ends of the earth your possession.

9 You will break them with a rod of iron[dr] ;
you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

9

Psalms 6

1

Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger
or discipline me in your wrath.

2 Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint;
heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.

3 My soul is in deep anguish.
How long, Lord, how long?

3

Psalms 4

1

Answer me when I call to you,
my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

1

Psalms 5

1

Listen to my words, Lord,
consider my lament.

2 Hear my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.

2

3

In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.

4 For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
with you, evil people are not welcome.

5 The arrogant cannot stand
in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;

6 you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
you, Lord, detest.

7 But I, by your great love,
can come into your house;
in reverence I bow down
toward your holy temple.

7

Psalms 4

2

How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
How long will you love delusions and seek false gods[ds][dt]

3 Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself;
the Lord hears when I call to him.

3

Psalms 6

4

Turn, Lord, and deliver me;
save me because of your unfailing love.

5 Among the dead no one proclaims your name.
Who praises you from the grave?

5

Psalms 2

10

Therefore, you kings, be wise;
be warned, you rulers of the earth.

11 Serve the Lord with fear
and celebrate his rule with trembling.

12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry
and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

12

Psalms 3

3

But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.

4 I call out to the Lord,
and he answers me from his holy mountain.

4

Psalms 7

3

Lord my God, if I have done this
and there is guilt on my hands—

4 if I have repaid my ally with evil
or without cause have robbed my foe—

5 then let my enemy pursue and overtake me;
let him trample my life to the ground
and make me sleep in the dust.[du]

5

Psalms 9

1

I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

2 I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.

2

Psalms 10

12

Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.
Do not forget the helpless.

13 Why does the wicked man revile God?
Why does he say to himself,
“He won’t call me to account”?

14 But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
you consider their grief and take it in hand.
The victims commit themselves to you;
you are the helper of the fatherless.

15 Break the arm of the wicked man;
call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
that would not otherwise be found out.

15

Psalms 11

7

For the Lord is righteous,
he loves justice;
the upright will see his face.

7

Psalms 8

1

Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
in the heavens.

2 Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.

3 When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,

4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?[dv]

4

Psalms 19

7

The law of the Lord is perfect,
refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.

8 The precepts of the Lord are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord is pure,
enduring forever.
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
and all of them are righteous.

9

Psalms 21

2

You have granted him his heart’s desire
and have not withheld the request of his lips.[dw]

3 You came to greet him with rich blessings
and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.

4 He asked you for life, and you gave it to him—
length of days, for ever and ever.

5 Through the victories you gave, his glory is great;
you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.

6 Surely you have granted him unending blessings
and made him glad with the joy of your presence.

7 For the king trusts in the Lord;
through the unfailing love of the Most High
he will not be shaken.

7

Psalms 18

1

I love you, Lord, my strength.

1

Psalms 12

3

May the Lord silence all flattering lips
and every boastful tongue—

4 those who say,
“By our tongues we will prevail;
our own lips will defend us—who is lord over us?”

4

Psalms 13

3

Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,

4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

4

Psalms 14

2

The Lord looks down from heaven
on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
any who seek God.

3 All have turned away, all have become corrupt;
there is no one who does good,
not even one.

3

Psalms 15

5 who lends money to the poor without interest;
who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

Whoever does these things
will never be shaken.

5

Psalms 17

6

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;
turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.

7 Show me the wonders of your great love,
you who save by your right hand
those who take refuge in you from their foes.

8 Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings

9 from the wicked who are out to destroy me,
from my mortal enemies who surround me.

9

Psalms 16

5

Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
you make my lot secure.

6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.

7 I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.

8 I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

8

Psalms 22

3

Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One;
you are the one Israel praises.[dx]

4 In you our ancestors put their trust;
they trusted and you delivered them.

5 To you they cried out and were saved;
in you they trusted and were not put to shame.

5

Psalms 25

2

I trust in you;
do not let me be put to shame,
nor let my enemies triumph over me.

3 No one who hopes in you
will ever be put to shame,
but shame will come on those
who are treacherous without cause.

3

Psalms 20

5 May we shout for joy over your victory
and lift up our banners in the name of our God.

May the Lord grant all your requests.

5

Psalms 30

4

Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
praise his holy name.

5 For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.

5

Psalms 28

5

Because they have no regard for the deeds of the Lord
and what his hands have done,
he will tear them down
and never build them up again.

5

Psalms 24

5

They will receive blessing from the Lord
and vindication from God their Savior.

6 Such is the generation of those who seek him,
who seek your face, God of Jacob.[dy][dz]

6

Psalms 27

4

One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.

5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.

5

Psalms 26

8

Lord, I love the house where you live,
the place where your glory dwells.

9 Do not take away my soul along with sinners,
my life with those who are bloodthirsty,

10 in whose hands are wicked schemes,
whose right hands are full of bribes.

11 I lead a blameless life;
deliver me and be merciful to me.

11

Psalms 33

12

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people he chose for his inheritance.

13 From heaven the Lord looks down
and sees all mankind;

14 from his dwelling place he watches
all who live on earth—

15 he who forms the hearts of all,
who considers everything they do.

15

Psalms 32

5

Then I acknowledged my sin to you
and did not cover up my iniquity.
I said, “I will confess
my transgressions to the Lord.”
And you forgave
the guilt of my sin.

5

Psalms 31

1

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
deliver me in your righteousness.

2 Turn your ear to me,
come quickly to my rescue;
be my rock of refuge,
a strong fortress to save me.

3 Since you are my rock and my fortress,
for the sake of your name lead and guide me.

4 Keep me free from the trap that is set for me,
for you are my refuge.

5 Into your hands I commit my spirit;
deliver me, Lord, my faithful God.

5

Psalms 36

2

In their own eyes they flatter themselves
too much to detect or hate their sin.

3 The words of their mouths are wicked and deceitful;
they fail to act wisely or do good.

4 Even on their beds they plot evil;
they commit themselves to a sinful course
and do not reject what is wrong.

4

Psalms 34

1

I will extol the Lord at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.

2 I will glory in the Lord;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.

3 Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.

3

Psalms 35

7

Since they hid their net for me without cause
and without cause dug a pit for me,

8 may ruin overtake them by surprise—
may the net they hid entangle them,
may they fall into the pit, to their ruin.

9 Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord
and delight in his salvation.

10 My whole being will exclaim,
“Who is like you, Lord?
You rescue the poor from those too strong for them,
the poor and needy from those who rob them.”

10

Psalms 37

3

Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

4 Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

4

Psalms 38

5

My wounds fester and are loathsome
because of my sinful folly.

6 I am bowed down and brought very low;
all day long I go about mourning.

7 My back is filled with searing pain;
there is no health in my body.

8 I am feeble and utterly crushed;
I groan in anguish of heart.

8

Psalms 39

4

“Show me, Lord, my life’s end
and the number of my days;
let me know how fleeting my life is.

5 You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath,
even those who seem secure.[ea]

5

Psalms 44

4

You are my King and my God,
who decrees[eb] victories for Jacob.

5 Through you we push back our enemies;
through your name we trample our foes.

6 I put no trust in my bow,
my sword does not bring me victory;

7 but you give us victory over our enemies,
you put our adversaries to shame.

8 In God we make our boast all day long,
and we will praise your name forever.[ec]

8

Psalms 41

4

I said, “Have mercy on me, Lord;
heal me, for I have sinned against you.”

5 My enemies say of me in malice,
“When will he die and his name perish?”

6 When one of them comes to see me,
he speaks falsely, while his heart gathers slander;
then he goes out and spreads it around.

6

Psalms 40

1

I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.

2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.

3 He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord
and put their trust in him.

3

Psalms 45

2

You are the most excellent of men
and your lips have been anointed with grace,
since God has blessed you forever.

2

Psalms 42

1

As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, my God.

2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?

3 My tears have been my food
day and night,
while people say to me all day long,
“Where is your God?”

4 These things I remember
as I pour out my soul:
how I used to go to the house of God
under the protection of the Mighty One[ed]
with shouts of joy and praise
among the festive throng.

4

Psalms 46

4

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.

5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.

6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

6

Psalms 47

2

For the Lord Most High is awesome,
the great King over all the earth.

3 He subdued nations under us,
peoples under our feet.

4 He chose our inheritance for us,
the pride of Jacob, whom he loved.[ee]

4

Psalms 29

10

The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
the Lord is enthroned as King forever.

11 The Lord gives strength to his people;
the Lord blesses his people with peace.

11

Psalms 48

2

Beautiful in its loftiness,
the joy of the whole earth,
like the heights of Zaphon[ef] is Mount Zion,
the city of the Great King.

3 God is in her citadels;
he has shown himself to be her fortress.

3

Psalms 49

5

Why should I fear when evil days come,
when wicked deceivers surround me—

6 those who trust in their wealth
and boast of their great riches?

7 No one can redeem the life of another
or give to God a ransom for them—

8 the ransom for a life is costly,
no payment is ever enough—

9 so that they should live on forever
and not see decay.

10 For all can see that the wise die,
that the foolish and the senseless also perish,
leaving their wealth to others.

11 Their tombs will remain their houses[eg] forever,
their dwellings for endless generations,
though they had[eh] named lands after themselves.

11

Psalms 51

3

For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.

4 Against you, you only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in your sight;
so you are right in your verdict
and justified when you judge.

5 Surely I was sinful at birth,
sinful from the time my mother conceived me.

6 Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;
you taught me wisdom in that secret place.

6

Psalms 50

14

“Sacrifice thank offerings to God,
fulfill your vows to the Most High,

15 and call on me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”

15

Psalms 59

3

See how they lie in wait for me!
Fierce men conspire against me
for no offense or sin of mine, Lord.

4 I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me.
Arise to help me; look on my plight!

5 You, Lord God Almighty,
you who are the God of Israel,
rouse yourself to punish all the nations;
show no mercy to wicked traitors.[ei]

5

Psalms 60

1

You have rejected us, God, and burst upon us;
you have been angry—now restore us!

2 You have shaken the land and torn it open;
mend its fractures, for it is quaking.

3 You have shown your people desperate times;
you have given us wine that makes us stagger.

4 But for those who fear you, you have raised a banner
to be unfurled against the bow.[ej]

4

Psalms 58

3

Even from birth the wicked go astray;
from the womb they are wayward, spreading lies.

4 Their venom is like the venom of a snake,
like that of a cobra that has stopped its ears,

5 that will not heed the tune of the charmer,
however skillful the enchanter may be.

5

Psalms 57

1

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 wings
until the disaster has passed.

1

Psalms 55

4

My heart is in anguish within me;
the terrors of death have fallen on me.

5 Fear and trembling have beset me;
horror has overwhelmed me.

6 I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest.

7 I would flee far away
and stay in the desert;[ek]

8 I would hurry to my place of shelter,
far from the tempest and storm.”

8

Psalms 56

3

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

4 In God, whose word I praise—
in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?

4

Psalms 52

5

Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin:
He will snatch you up and pluck you from your tent;
he will uproot you from the land of the living.

6 The righteous will see and fear;
they will laugh at you, saying,

7 “Here now is the man
who did not make God his stronghold
but trusted in his great wealth
and grew strong by destroying others!”

7

Psalms 53

1

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.

1

Psalms 54

3

Arrogant foes are attacking me;
ruthless people are trying to kill me—
people without regard for God.[el]

3

Psalms 61

2

From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

3 For you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the foe.

3

Psalms 62

3

How long will you assault me?
Would all of you throw me down—
this leaning wall, this tottering fence?

4 Surely they intend to topple me
from my lofty place;
they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
but in their hearts they curse.[em]

4

Psalms 63

2

I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.

3 Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.

4 I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.

5 I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

5

Psalms 64

2

Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked,
from the plots of evildoers.

3 They sharpen their tongues like swords
and aim cruel words like deadly arrows.

4 They shoot from ambush at the innocent;
they shoot suddenly, without fear.

4

Psalms 68

4

Sing to God, sing in praise of his name,
extol him who rides on the clouds[en] ;
rejoice before him—his name is the Lord.

5 A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,
is God in his holy dwelling.

6 God sets the lonely in families,[eo]
he leads out the prisoners with singing;
but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

6

Psalms 65

5

You answer us with awesome and righteous deeds,
God our Savior,
the hope of all the ends of the earth
and of the farthest seas,

6 who formed the mountains by your power,
having armed yourself with strength,

7 who stilled the roaring of the seas,
the roaring of their waves,
and the turmoil of the nations.

8 The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
where morning dawns, where evening fades,
you call forth songs of joy.

8

Psalms 66

8

Praise our God, all peoples,
let the sound of his praise be heard;

9 he has preserved our lives
and kept our feet from slipping.

10 For you, God, tested us;
you refined us like silver.

11 You brought us into prison
and laid burdens on our backs.

12 You let people ride over our heads;
we went through fire and water,
but you brought us to a place of abundance.

12

Psalms 69

5

You, God, know my folly;
my guilt is not hidden from you.

5

Psalms 71

14

As for me, I will always have hope;
I will praise you more and more.

14

Psalms 67

3

May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you.

4 May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for you rule the peoples with equity
and guide the nations of the earth.

5 May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you.

5

Psalms 70

1

Hasten, O God, to save me;
come quickly, Lord, to help me.
