___Psalm 101 1 I'll sing of mercy and justice, to you, O Lord, I'll sing. 2 I'll behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when will you come to me? I'll walk inside my house with a perfect heart. 3 I'll set no wicked thing before my eyes, I hate the work of those who turn aside, it won't stick to me. 4 A perverse heart shall depart from me, I won't know a wicked person. 5 I will cut off whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, he that has a high look and a proud heart I won't allow. 6 My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, so that they'll live with me, he that walks in a perfect way, he shall serve me. 7 He that works deceit shall not live in my house, he that tells lies shall not remain in my sight. 8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land, so that I can cut off all wicked doers from the city of the Lord.
___Psalm 102 1 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and let my shout come to you. 2 Don't hide your face from me in the day when I am in trouble, incline your ear to me, in the day when I call, answer me speedily. 3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned like a hearth. 4 My heart is struck and withered like grass, so that I forget to eat my bread. 5 By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones stick to my skin. 6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness, I am like an owl of the desert. 7 I watch, and am like a sparrow alone on the house top. 8 My enemies reproach me all day long, and those who are insane against me are sworn against me. 9 For I've eaten ashes like bread, and mixed my drink with weeping, 10 Because of your indignation and your anger, for you've lifted me up, and thrown me down. 11 My days are like a shadow that declines, and I am withered like grass. 12 But you, O Lord, shall endure forever, and the memory of you to all generations. 13 You'll get up, and have mercy on Zion, for the time to favor her, yes, the set time, has come. 14 For your servants take pleasure in her stones, and favor the dust of it. 15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth your glory. 16 When the Lord shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory. 17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer. 18 This shall be written for the generation to come, and the people that shall be created shall praise the Lord. 19 For he has looked down from the height of his sanctuary, from heaven the Lord saw the earth, 20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner, to loose those that are appointed to death, 21 To declare the name of the Lord in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem, 22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the Lord. 23 He weakened my strength in the way, he shortened my days. 24 I said, "O my God, don't take me away in the middle of my days, your years are throughout all generations. 25 Of old you've laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. 26 They shall perish, but you'll endure, yes, all of them shall grow old like a garment, like a vesture you'll change them, and they'll be changed, 27 But you are the same, and your years shall have no end. 28 The children of your servants shall continue, and their descendants shall be established before you."
___Psalm 103 1 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is inside me, bless his holy name. 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and don't forget all his benefits, 3 Who forgives all your sins, who heals all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. 6 The Lord executes righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed. 7 He made known his ways to Moses, his acts to the children of Israel. 8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. 9 He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. 10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. 11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward those who fear him. 12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our sins from us. 13 Like a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear him. 14 For he knows our frame, he remembers that we are dust. 15 As for man, his days are like grass, like a flower of the field, so he flourishes. 16 For the wind passes over it, and it's gone, and the place of it shall know it no more. 17 But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children's children, 18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them. 19 The Lord has prepared his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all. 20 Bless the Lord, you his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, listening to the voice of his word. 21 Bless the Lord, all of you his hosts, you ministers of his, that do his pleasure. 22 Bless the Lord, all his works in all places of his dominion, bless the Lord, O my soul.
___Psalm 104 1 Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, you are very great, you are clothed with honor and majesty. 2 Who covers yourself with light like with a garment, who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, 3 Who lays the beams of his rooms in the waters, who makes the clouds his chariot, who walks on the wings of the wind, 4 Who makes his angels spirits, his ministers a flaming fire, 5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, so that it would not be removed forever. 6 You covered it with the deep as with a garment, the waters stood above the mountains. 7 At your reprimand they fled, at the voice of your thunder they hurried away. 8 They go up by the mountains, they go down by the valleys to the place that you've founded for them. 9 You've set a bound so that they can't pass over, so that they don't return to cover the earth. 10 He sends the springs into the valleys, that run among the hills. 11 They give drink to every beast of the field, the wild asses quench their thirst. 12 The fowls of the heaven shall have their habitation by them, who sing among the branches. 13 He waters the hills from his rooms, the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your works. 14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and vegetables for the service of man, so that he can bring forth food out of the earth, 15 And wine that makes glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face shine, and bread that strengthens man's heart. 16 The trees of the Lord are full of sap, the cedars of Lebanon that he has planted, 17 Where the birds make their nests, as for the stork, the fir trees are her house. 18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats, and the rocks for the conies. 19 He appointed the moon for seasons, the sun knows its going down. 20 You make darkness, and it's night, in which all the beasts of the forest do creep forth. 21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God. 22 The sun arises, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens. 23 Man goes out to his work and to his labor until the evening. 24 O Lord, how many are your works! In wisdom you've made them all, the earth is full of your riches. 25 So is this great and wide sea, in which are uncountable creeping things, both small and great beasts. 26 There go the ships, there are the whales, that you've made to play in it. 27 These all wait on you, so you'll give them their food in due season. 28 They gather what you give them, you open your hand, they are filled with good. 29 You hide your face, they are troubled, you take away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. 30 You send out your spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the earth. 31 The glory of the Lord shall endure forever, the Lord shall rejoice in his works. 32 He looks at the earth, and it trembles, he touches the hills, and they smoke. 33 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live, I'll sing praise to my God while I have my being. 34 My meditation of him shall be sweet, I'll be glad in the Lord. 35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless the Lord, O my soul. Praise the Lord.
___Psalm 105 1 O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known his deeds among the people. 2 Sing to him, sing psalms to him, talk of all his wondrous works. 3 Glory in his holy name, let the heart of those rejoice who seek the Lord. 4 Seek the Lord, and his strength, seek his face always more. 5 Remember his marvelous works that he has done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth, 6 O you seed of Abraham his servant, you children of Jacob his chosen. 7 He is the Lord our God, his judgments are in all the earth. 8 He has remembered his covenant forever, the word that he commanded to a thousand generations. 9 Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath to Isaac, 10 And confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant, 11 Saying, "To you I will give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance," 12 When they were but a few men in number, yes, very few, and strangers in it. 13 When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people, 14 He allowed no man to do them wrong, yes, he reproved kings for their sakes, 15 Saying, "Don't touch my anointed, and do my prophets no harm." 16 Also he called for a famine on the land, he broke the whole staff of bread. 17 He sent a man before them, Joseph, who was sold for a servant, 18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters, he was laid in iron, 19 Until the time that his word came, the word of the Lord tested him. 20 The king sent and loosed him, the ruler of the people, and let him go free. 21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance, 22 To bind his princes at his pleasure, and teach his senators wisdom. 23 Israel also came into Egypt, and Jacob visited in the land of Ham. 24 And he increased his people greatly, and made them stronger than their enemies. 25 He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtlely with his servants. 26 He sent Moses his servant, and Aaron whom he had chosen. 27 They showed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham. 28 He sent darkness, and made it dark, and they didn't rebel against his word. 29 He turned their waters into blood, and killed their fish. 30 Their land produced frogs in abundance, in the rooms of their kings. 31 He spoke, and there came various sorts of flies, and lice in all their coasts. 32 He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land. 33 He struck their vines also and their fig trees, and broke the trees of their coasts. 34 He spoke, and the locusts came, and caterpillars, without number, 35 And ate up all the vegetables in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground. 36 He struck also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength. 37 He brought them out also with silver and gold, and there was not one feeble person among their tribes. 38 Egypt was glad when they departed, for the fear of them fell on them. 39 He spread a cloud for a covering, and fire to give light in the night. 40 The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven. 41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out, they ran in the dry places like a river. 42 For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant. 43 And he brought out his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness, 44 And gave them the lands of the heathen, and they inherited the labor of the people, 45 So that they would observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise the Lord.
___Psalm 106 1 Praise the Lord. O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his mercy endures forever. 2 Who can tell the mighty acts of the Lord? Who can show forth all his praise? 3 Blessed are those who keep judgment, and he that does righteousness at all times. 4 Remember me, O Lord, with the favor that you bear to your people, O visit me with your salvation, 5 So that I'll see the good of your chosen, so that I'll rejoice in the gladness of your nation, so that I'll glory with your inheritance. 6 We've sinned with our fathers, we've committed sin, we have done wickedly. 7 Our fathers didn't understand your wonders in Egypt, they didn't remember the multitude of your mercies, but provoked him at the sea, at the Red Sea. 8 But he saved them for his name's sake, so that he could make his mighty power to be known. 9 He reprimanded the Red Sea also, and it was dried up, so he led them through the depths, like through the wilderness. 10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. 11 And the waters covered their enemies, there wasn't one of them left. 12 Then they believed his words, they sang his praise. 13 They soon forgot his works, they didn't wait for his advice, 14 But lusted very much in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. 15 And he gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul. 16 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the Lord. 17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram. 18 And a fire was kindled in their company, the flame burned up the wicked. 19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the image cast in foundry. 20 Thus they changed their glory into the likeness of an ox that eats grass. 21 They forgot God their savior, who had done great things in Egypt, 22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red Sea. 23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, if Moses his chosen hadn't stood before him in the gap, to turn away his anger, so that he wouldn't destroy them. 24 Yes, they despised the pleasant land, they didn't believe his word, 25 But murmured in their tents, and didn't listen to the voice of the Lord. 26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness, 27 To overthrow their descendants also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands. 28 They joined themselves also to Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead. 29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions, and the plague broke in on them. 30 Then Phinehas stood up, and executed justice, and so the plague was stopped. 31 And that was counted to him for righteousness to all generations forever. 32 They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes, 33 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spoke unadvisedly with his lips. 34 They didn't destroy the nations, concerning whom the Lord commanded them, 35 But were mixed among the heathen, and learned their works. 36 And they served their idols, which were a trap to them. 37 Yes, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to devils, 38 And shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was polluted with blood. 39 Thus they were defiled with their own works, and went whoring with their own inventions. 40 Therefore the anger of the Lord was kindled against his people, since he hated his own inheritance. 41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen, and those who hated them ruled over them. 42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand. 43 He gave them deliverance many times, but they provoked him with their advice, and were brought low for their sin. 44 But he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry, 45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies. 46 He made them also to be pitied by all those that carried them captives. 47 Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks to your holy name, and to triumph in your praise. 48 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting, and let all the people say, "Amen." Praise the Lord.
___Psalm 107 1 O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his mercy endures forever. 2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, 3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south. 4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way, they found no city to live in. 5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. 6 Then they called to the Lord in their trouble, and he gave them deliverance them out of their distresses. 7 And he led them out by the right way, so they would go to a city of habitation. 8 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 9 For he satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. 10 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron, 11 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and held in contempt the advice of the most high, 12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labor, they fell down, and there was no one to help. 13 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. 14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their bonds in pieces. 15 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 16 For he has broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in pieces. 17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their sins, are afflicted. 18 Their soul hates all kinds of food, and they draw near to the gates of death. 19 Then they cry to the Lord in their trouble, and he saves them out of their distresses. 20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. 21 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing. 23 Those who go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters, 24 These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep. 25 For he commands, and raises the stormy wind, that lifts up its waves. 26 They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths, their soul is melted because of trouble. 27 They reel back and forth, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end. 28 Then they call to the Lord in their trouble, and he brings them out of their distresses. 29 He makes the storm a calm, so that the waves of it are still. 30 Then are they glad because they are quiet, so he brings them to their desired haven. 31 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 32 Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders. 33 He turns rivers into a wilderness, and the water springs into dry ground, 34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of those who live in it. 35 He turns the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into water springs. 36 And he makes the hungry to live there, so that they can prepare a city for habitation, 37 And plant the fields, and plant vineyards, that will yield fruits of increase. 38 He blesses them also, so that they are multiplied greatly, and doesn't allow their cattle to decrease. 39 Again, they are diminished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow. 40 He pours contempt on princes, and causes them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way. 41 Yet he sets the poor on high from affliction, and makes him families like a flock. 42 The righteous shall see it, and rejoice, and all sin shall stop its mouth. 43 Whoever is wise, and will observe these things, they shall understand the loving kindness of the Lord.
___Psalm 108 1 O God, my heart is fixed, I will sing and give praise with my glory. 2 Awake, psaltery and harp, I myself will wake up early. 3 I will praise you, O Lord, among the people, and I will sing praises to you among the nations. 4 For your mercy is great above the heavens, and your truth reaches to the clouds. 5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, and your glory above all the earth, 6 So that your beloved will receive deliverance, save with your right hand, and answer me. 7 God has spoken in his holiness, I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and measure out the valley of Succoth. 8 Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine, Ephraim also is the strength of my head, Judah is my lawgiver, 9 Moab is my wash pot, over Edom I'll empty my shoe, I'll triumph over Philistia. 10 Who will bring me into the strong city? Who will lead me into Edom? 11 Won't you, O God, who had thrown us away? And won't you, O God, go out with our armies? 12 Give us help from trouble, for the help of man is useless. 13 Through God we shall do valiantly, for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
___Psalm 109 1 Don't be silent, O God of my praise, 2 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful have opened against me, they've spoken against me with a lying tongue. 3 They surrounded me also with words of hatred, and fought against me without a reason. 4 For my love they are my adversaries, but I give myself to prayer. 5 And they've rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love. 6 Set a wicked man over him, and let Satan stand at his right hand. 7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned, and let his prayer become sin. 8 Let his days be few, and let another take his office. 9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. 10 Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg, let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places. 11 Let the extortionist catch all that he has, and let the strangers spoil his labor. 12 Let there be no one to extend mercy to him, nor let there be anyone to favor his fatherless children. 13 Let his descendants be cut off, and in the generation following, let their name be blotted out. 14 Let the sin of his fathers be remembered with the Lord, and don't let the sin of his mother be blotted out. 15 Let them be before the Lord continually, so that he'll cut off the memory of them from the earth. 16 Because he didn't remember to show mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, so that he could kill the broken hearted. 17 As he loved cursing, so let it come to him, as he didn't delight in blessing, so let it be far from him. 18 As he clothed himself with cursing like with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones. 19 Let it be to him like the garment that covers him, and for a girdle with which he is girded continually. 20 Let this be the reward of my adversaries from the Lord, and of those who speak evil against my soul. 21 But do for me, O God the Lord, for your name's sake, because your mercy is good, deliver me. 22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded inside me. 23 I am gone like the shadow when it declines, I'm tossed up and down like the locust. 24 My knees are weak through fasting, and my flesh has lost its fatness. 25 I became also a reproach to them, when they looked at me they shook their heads. 26 Help me, O Lord my God, O save me according to your mercy, 27 So that they'll know that this is your hand, that you, Lord, have done it. 28 Let them curse, but you bless, when they arise, let them be ashamed, but let your servant rejoice. 29 Let my adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, like with a mantle. 30 I will greatly praise the Lord with my mouth, yes, I will praise him among the multitude. 31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.
___Psalm 110 1 The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool." 2 The Lord shall send the rod of your strength out of Zion, rule among your enemies. 3 Your people shall be willing in the day of your power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning, you have the dew of your youth. 4 The Lord has sworn, and will not repent, "You're a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek." 5 The Lord at your right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his anger. 6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies, he shall wound the heads over many countries. 7 He shall drink of the brook in the way, therefore shall he lift up the head.
___Psalm 111 1 Praise the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation. 2 The works of the Lord are great, sought out by all of those who have pleasure in them. 3 His work is honorable and glorious, and his righteousness endures forever. 4 He has made his wonderful works to be remembered, the Lord is gracious and full of compassion. 5 He has given food to those who fear him, he will always be mindful of his covenant. 6 He has shown his people the power of his works, so that he can give them the heritage of the heathen. 7 The works of his hands are truth and judgment, all his commandments are sure. 8 They stand fast forever and always, and are done in truth and uprightness. 9 He sent redemption to his people, he has commanded his covenant forever, holy and reverend is his name. 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, a good understanding have all of those who do his commandments, his praise endures forever.
___Psalm 112 1 Praise the Lord. Blessed is the man that fears the Lord, that greatly delights in his commandments. 2 His descendants shall be mighty on earth, the generation of the upright shall be blessed. 3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house, and his righteousness endures forever. 4 To the upright, light arises in the darkness, he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. 5 A good man shows favor, and lends, he will guide his affairs with discretion. 6 Surely he shall not be moved forever, the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. 7 He shall not be afraid of bad news, his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord. 8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he sees his desire on his enemies. 9 He has dispersed, he has given to the poor, his righteousness endures forever, his horn shall be exalted with honor. 10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved, he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away, the desire of the wicked shall be destroyed.
___Psalm 113 1 Praise the Lord. Praise, O you servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord. 2 Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forever. 3 From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same the Lord's name is to be praised. 4 The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. 5 Who is like the Lord our God, who dwells on high, 6 Who humbles himself to see the things that are in heaven, and in the earth! 7 He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the manure pile, 8 So that he can set him with princes, with the princes of his people. 9 He makes the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise you the Lord.
___Psalm 114 1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language, 2 Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion. 3 The sea saw it, and fled, Jordan was driven back. 4 The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs. 5 What ailed you, O sea, that you fled? You Jordan, that you were driven back? 6 You mountains, that you skipped like rams, and you little hills, like lambs? 7 Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, 8 Who turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
___Psalm 115 1 Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for your mercy, and for your truth's sake. 2 Why should the heathen say, where is now their God? 3 But our God is in the heavens, he has done whatever he pleased. 4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. 5 They have mouths, but they don't speak, they have eyes, but they don't see, 6 They have ears, but they don't hear, they have noses, but they don't smell, 7 They have hands, but they don't handle, they have feet, but they don't walk, nor do they speak through their throat. 8 Those who make them are like them, so is everyone that trusts in them. 9 O Israel, trust in the Lord, he is their help and their shield. 10 O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord, he is their help and their shield. 11 You that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord, he is their help and their shield. 12 The Lord has been mindful of us, he will bless us, he will bless the house of Israel, he will bless the house of Aaron. 13 He will bless those who fear the Lord, both small and great. 14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children. 15 You are blessed by the Lord who made heaven and earth. 16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord's, but the earth he has given to the children of men. 17 The dead don't praise the Lord, nor any that go down into silence. 18 But we will bless the Lord from this time forth and forever. Praise the Lord.
___Psalm 116 1 I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my supplications. 2 Because he has inclined his ear to me, therefore I'll call on him as long as I live. 3 The sorrows of death surrounded me, and the pains of hell took hold of me, I found trouble and sorrow. 4 Then I called on the name of the Lord, O Lord, I beg of you, deliver my soul. 5 Gracious is the Lord, and righteous, yes, our God is merciful. 6 The Lord preserves the simple, I was brought low, and he helped me. 7 Return to your rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt abundantly with you. 8 For you've delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. 9 I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living. 10 I believed, therefore I've spoken, I was greatly afflicted, 11 I said in my haste, "All men are liars." 12 What shall I render to the Lord for all his benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call on the name of the Lord. 14 I will pay my vows to the Lord now in the presence of all his people. 15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. 16 O Lord, truly I am your servant, I am your servant, and the son of your handmaid, you have undone my bonds. 17 I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call on the name of the Lord. 18 I will pay my vows to the Lord now in the presence of all his people, 19 In the courts of the Lord's house, in you, O Jerusalem.

___Psalm 118 1 O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, because his mercy endures forever. 2 Let Israel now say, that his mercy endures forever. 3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endures forever. 4 Let those now who fear the Lord say, that his mercy endures forever. 5 I called on the Lord in distress, the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place. 6 The Lord is on my side, I will not fear, what can man do to me? 7 The Lord takes my part with those who help me, therefore I'll see my desire on those who hate me. 8 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. 9 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes. 10 All nations surrounded me, but in the name of the Lord I'll destroy them. 11 They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me, but in the name of the Lord I'll destroy them. 12 They surrounded me like bees, they are quenched like the fire of thorns, for in the name of the Lord I'll destroy them. 13 You've thrust severely at me so that I'd fall, but the Lord helped me. 14 The Lord is my strength and song, and has become my salvation. 15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous, the right hand of the Lord does valiantly. 16 The right hand of the Lord is exalted, the right hand of the Lord does valiantly. 17 I won't die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord. 18 The Lord has punished me severely, but he hasn't given me over to death. 19 Open to me the gates of righteousness, I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord, 20 This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter. 21 I will praise you, for you've heard me, and have become my salvation. 22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. 23 This is the Lord's doing, it is marvelous in our eyes. 24 This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. 25 Save now, I beg of you, O Lord. O Lord, I beg if you, send now prosperity. 26 Blessed be him that comes in the name of the Lord, we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord. 27 God is the Lord, who has shown us light, bind the sacrifice with cords, to the horns of the altar. 28 You are my God, and I'll praise you, you are my God, I will exalt you. 29 O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his mercy endures forever.
