1 Blessed is the man1
nor stands in cthe way of sinners,
and on his hlaw he meditates day and night.
3 He is like ia tree
planted by jstreams of water
and its kleaf does not wither.
lIn all that he does, he prospers.
but are like mchaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked nwill not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in othe congregation of the righteous;
against the Lord and against his tAnointed, saying,
3 “Let us uburst their bonds apart
5 Then he will speak to them in his xwrath,
6 “As for me, I have yset my King
The Lord said to me, b“You are my Son;
and cthe ends of the earth your possession.
and dash them in pieces like fa potter's vessel.”
for his lwrath is quickly kindled.
mBlessed are all who take refuge in him.
Who shall dwell on your wholy hill?
and zspeaks truth in his heart;
3 who adoes not slander with his tongue
nor btakes up a reproach against his friend;
4 cin whose eyes a vile person is despised,
who dswears to his own hurt and does not change;
5 who edoes not put out his money at interest
and fdoes not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be gmoved.
22 uMy God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
2 O my God, I cry by xday, but you do not answer,
3 Yet you are yholy,
5 To you they bcried and were rescued;
in you they ctrusted and were not put to shame.
6 But I am da worm and not a man,
7 All who see me gmock me;
they make mouths at me; they hwag their heads;
let him rescue him, for he kdelights in him!”
9 Yet you are he who ltook me from the womb;
and from mmy mother's womb you have been my God.
11 Be not nfar from me,
and there is onone to help.
13 they ropen wide their mouths at me,
14 I am spoured out like water,
and all my bones are tout of joint;
15 my strength is wdried up like a potsherd,
and my xtongue sticks to my jaws;
16 For ydogs encompass me;
a company of evildoers zencircles me;
they bstare and gloat over me;
18 cthey divide my garments among them,
19 But you, O Lord, ndo not be far off!
O you my help, dcome quickly to my aid!
my precious life from the power of ethe dog!
21 Save me from fthe mouth of the lion!
23 You who jfear the Lord, praise him!
All you offspring of Jacob, kglorify him,
the affliction of lthe afflicted,
and he has not mhidden his face from him,
but has heard, when he ncried to him.
25 From you comes my praise in the great ocongregation;
May your hearts tlive forever!
27 All uthe ends of the earth shall remember
and all vthe families of the nations
28 For wkingship belongs to the Lord,
29 All xthe prosperous of the earth eat and worship;
before him shall ybow all who go down to the dust,
even the one who could not zkeep himself alive.
it shall be told of the Lord to the coming ageneration;
2 He makes me lie down in green fpastures.
He leads me beside still waters.5
3 He grestores my soul.
for his jname's sake.
I will mfear no evil,
for nyou are with me;
your orod and your staff,
5 You pprepare a table before me
in qthe presence of my enemies;
you ranoint my head with oil;
my scup overflows.
3 yWho shall ascend the hill of the Lord?
And who shall stand in his zholy place?
5 He will receive fblessing from the Lord
6 Such is ithe generation of those who seek him,
7 kLift up your heads, O gates!
that lthe King of glory may come in.
the Lord, mmighty in battle!
nThe Lord of hosts,
47 xClap your hands, all peoples!
yShout to God with loud songs of joy!
2 For the Lord, the Most High, zis to be feared,
aa great king over all the earth.
3 He bsubdued peoples under us,
4 He chose our cheritage for us,
dthe pride of Jacob whom he loves. Selah
5 God ehas gone up with a shout,
7 For God is fthe King of all the earth;
8 God hreigns over the nations;
9 iThe princes of the peoples gather
For jthe shields of the earth belong to God;
2 As gsmoke is driven away, so you shall drive them away;
has wax melts before fire,
3 But ithe righteous shall be glad;
4 Sing to God, jsing praises to his name;
his name is nthe Lord;
6 God qsettles the solitary in a home;
he rleads out the prisoners to prosperity,
7 O God, when you uwent out before your people,
8 xthe earth quaked, the heavens poured down rain,
9 yRain in abundance, O God, you shed abroad;
10 your flock1 found a dwelling in it;
in your goodness, O God, you zprovided for the needy.
11 The Lord gives athe word;
bthe women who announce the news are a great host:
12 c“The kings of the armies—they flee, they flee!”
The women at home ddivide the spoil—
13 though you men lie among ethe sheepfolds—
let snow fall on fZalmon.
O many-peaked2 mountain, mountain of Bashan!
at the mount that God gdesired for his abode,
17 hThe chariots of God are twice ten thousand,
18 iYou ascended on high,
jleading a host of captives in your train
and kreceiving gifts among men,
who daily nbears us up;
oand to God, the Lord, belong deliverances from death.
21 pBut God will strike the heads of his enemies,
“I will bring them back qfrom Bashan,
rI will bring them back from the depths of the sea,
23 that you may sstrike your feet in their blood,
that tthe tongues of your dogs may have their portion from the foe.”
24 Your procession is3 seen, O God,
between them wvirgins playing tambourines:
26 x“Bless God in the great congregation,
27 There is zBenjamin, the least of them, in the lead,
the princes of aZebulun, the princes of Naphtali.
kings shall cbear gifts to you.
30 Rebuke dthe beasts that dwell among the reeds,
the herd of ebulls with the calves of the peoples.
fTrample underfoot those who lust after tribute;
scatter the peoples who delight in war.6
31 Nobles shall come from gEgypt;
32 jO kingdoms of the earth, sing to God;
behold, he msends out his voice, his mighty voice.
34 nAscribe power to God,
the God of Israel—he is the one who gives spower and strength to his people.
