The Book Of Psalms


Psalm 5

1  Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my sighing.
2  Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.
3  In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you
 and wait in expectation.

4  You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell.
5  The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong.
6  You destroy those who tell lies; bloodthirsty and deceitful men the LORD abhors.

7  But I, by your great mercy, will come into your house; in reverence will I bow down
towards your holy temple.
8  Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies-
make straight your way before me.

9  Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with destruction.
Their throat is an open grave; with their tongue they speak deceit.
10 Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you.

11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
12 For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favour as with a shield.

Psalm 8

1 O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
2 From the lips of children and infants
you have ordained praise
because of 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 man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him?
5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honour.

6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
you put everything under his feet:
7 all flocks and herds,
and the beasts of the field,
8 the birds of the air,
and the fish of the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.

9 O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Psalm 15

1 LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary?
Who may live on your holy hill?
2 He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from his heart
3 and has no slander on his tongue,
who does his neighbour no wrong and casts no slur on his fellow-man,
4 who despises a vile man but honours those who fear the LORD,
who keeps his oath even when it hurts,
5 who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things will never be shaken.

Psalm 23

1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,
for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and love will 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 everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;
2 for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.
3 Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place?
4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol
or swear by what is false.
5 He will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God his Saviour.
6 Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, O God of Jacob.
7 Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may 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 you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
10 Who is he, this King of glory? The LORD Almighty- he is the King of glory.
