    Psalm 61

    To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

    1 Hear my cry, O God,

        listen to my prayer;

    2 from the end of the earth I call to you

        when my heart is faint.

      Lead me to the rock

        that is higher than I,

    3 for you have been my refuge,

        a strong tower against the enemy.

    4 Let me dwell in your tent forever!

        Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah

    5 For you, O God, have heard my vows;

        you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.

    6 Prolong the life of the king;

        may his years endure to all generations!

    7 May he be enthroned forever before God;

        appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!

    8 So will I ever sing praises to your name,

        as I perform my vows day after day.

    Psalm 56

    To the choirmaster: according to The Dove on Far-off Terebinths.

    A Miktam of David, when the Philistines seized him in Gath.

    1 Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me;

        all day long an attacker oppresses me;

    2 my enemies trample on me all day long,

        for many attack me proudly.

    3 When I am afraid,

        I put my trust in you.

    4 In God, whose word I praise,

        in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.

        What can flesh do to me?

    5 All day long they injure my cause;

        all their thoughts are against me for evil.

    6 They stir up strife, they lurk;

        they watch my steps,

        as they have waited for my life.

    7 For their crime will they escape?

        In wrath cast down the peoples, O God!

    8 You have kept count of my tossings;

        put my tears in your bottle.

        Are they not in your book?

    9 Then my enemies will turn back

        in the day when I call.

        This I know, that God is for me.

    10 In God, whose word I praise,

        in the Lord, whose word I praise,

    11 in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.

        What can man do to me?

    12 I must perform my vows to you, O God;

        I will render thank offerings to you.

    13 For you have delivered my soul from death,

        yes, my feet from falling,

        that I may walk before God

    in the light of life.

  • Bible Text: Psalm 46

    To the choirmaster. Of the Sons of Korah.

    According to Alamoth. A Song.

    1 God is our refuge and strength,

        a very present help in trouble.

    2 Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,

        though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,

    3 though its waters roar and foam,

        though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah

    4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,

        the holy habitation of the Most High.

    5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;

        God will help her when morning dawns.

    6 The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;

        he utters his voice, the earth melts.

    7 The Lord of hosts is with us;

        the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

    8 Come, behold the works of the Lord,

        how he has brought desolations on the earth.

    9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;

        he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;

        he burns the chariots with fire.

    10 “Be still, and know that I am God.

        I will be exalted among the nations,

        I will be exalted in the earth!”

    11 The Lord of hosts is with us;

        the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

  • Bible Text: 

    Psalm 37

    Of David.

    1 Fret not yourself because of evildoers;

        be not envious of wrongdoers!

    2 For they will soon fade like the grass

        and wither like the green herb.

    3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;

        dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.

    4 Delight yourself in the Lord,

        and he will give you the desires of your heart.

    5 Commit your way to the Lord;

        trust in him, and he will act.

    6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,

        and your justice as the noonday.

    7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;

        fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,

        over the man who carries out evil devices!

    8 Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!

        Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.

    9 For the evildoers shall be cut off,

        but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land.

    10 In just a little while, the wicked will be no more;

    though you look carefully at his place, he will not be   

    there.

    11 But the meek shall inherit the land

        and delight themselves in abundant peace.

    12 The wicked plots against the righteous

        and gnashes his teeth at him,

    13 but the Lord laughs at the wicked,

        for he sees that his day is coming.

    14 The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows

        to bring down the poor and needy,

        to slay those whose way is upright;

    15 their sword shall enter their own heart,

        and their bows shall be broken.

    16 Better is the little that the righteous has

        than the abundance of many wicked.

    17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,

        but the Lord upholds the righteous.

    18 The Lord knows the days of the blameless,

        and their heritage will remain forever;

    19 they are not put to shame in evil times;

        in the days of famine they have abundance.

    20 But the wicked will perish;

        the enemies of the Lord are like the glory of the pastures;

        they vanish—like smoke they vanish away.

    21 The wicked borrows but does not pay back,

        but the righteous is generous and gives;

    22 for those blessed by the Lord shall inherit the land,

        but those cursed by him shall be cut off.

    23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord,

        when he delights in his way;

    24 though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,

        for the Lord upholds his hand.

    25 I have been young, and now am old,

        yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken

        or his children begging for bread.

    26 He is ever lending generously,

        and his children become a blessing.

    27 Turn away from evil and do good;

        so shall you dwell forever.

    28 For the Lord loves justice;

        he will not forsake his saints.

        They are preserved forever,

        but the children of the wicked shall be cut off.

    29 The righteous shall inherit the land

        and dwell upon it forever.

    30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,

        and his tongue speaks justice.

    31 The law of his God is in his heart;

        his steps do not slip.

    32 The wicked watches for the righteous

        and seeks to put him to death.

    33 The Lord will not abandon him to his power

        or let him be condemned when he is brought to trial.

    34 Wait for the Lord and keep his way,

        and he will exalt you to inherit the land;

        you will look on when the wicked are cut off.

    35 I have seen a wicked, ruthless man,

        spreading himself like a green laurel tree.

    36 But he passed away, and behold, he was no more;

        though I sought him, he could not be found.

    37 Mark the blameless and behold the upright,

        for there is a future for the man of peace.

    38 But transgressors shall be altogether destroyed;

        the future of the wicked shall be cut off.

    39 The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;

        he is their stronghold in the time of trouble.

    40 The Lord helps them and delivers them;

        he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,

        because they take refuge in him.

  • Bible Text: Psalm 32

    Psalm 32

    A Maskil of David.

    1 Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,

        whose sin is covered.

    2 Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,

        and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

    3 For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away

        through my groaning all day long.

    4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;

        my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah

    5 I acknowledged my sin to you,

        and I did not cover my iniquity;

    I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”

        and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah

    6 Therefore let everyone who is godly

        offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found;

    surely in the rush of great waters,

        they shall not reach him.

    7 You are a hiding place for me;

        you preserve me from trouble;

        you surround me with shouts of deliverance. Selah

    8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;

        I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

    9 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding,

        which must be curbed with bit and bridle,

        or it will not stay near you.

    10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked,

        but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord.

    11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,

        and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

  • Bible Text: Psalm 30

    A Psalm of David. A song at the dedication of the temple.

    1 I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up

        and have not let my foes rejoice over me.

    2 O Lord my God, I cried to you for help,

        and you have healed me.

    3 O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol;

        you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.

    4 Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints,

        and give thanks to his holy name.

    5 For his anger is but for a moment,

        and his favor is for a lifetime.

      Weeping may tarry for the night,

        but joy comes with the morning.

    6 As for me, I said in my prosperity,

        “I shall never be moved.”

    7 By your favor, O Lord,

        you made my mountain stand strong;

      you hid your face;

        I was dismayed.

    8 To you, O Lord, I cry,

        and to the Lord I plead for mercy:

    9 “What profit is there in my death,

        if I go down to the pit?

      Will the dust praise you?

        Will it tell of your faithfulness?

    10 Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me!

        O Lord, be my helper!”

    11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;

        you have loosed my sackcloth

        and clothed me with gladness,

    12 that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent.

        O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!

  • Bible Text: Psalm 27

    Of David.

    1 The Lord is my light and my salvation;

        whom shall I fear?

      The Lord is the stronghold of my life;

        of whom shall I be afraid?

    2 When evildoers assail me

        to eat up my flesh,

      my adversaries and foes,

        it is they who stumble and fall.

    3 Though an army encamp against me,

        my heart shall not fear;

      though war arise against me,

        yet I will be confident.

    4 One thing have I asked of the Lord,

        that will I seek after:

      that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

        all the days of my life,

      to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord

        and to inquire in his temple.

    5 For he will hide me in his shelter

        in the day of trouble;

      he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;

        he will lift me high upon a rock.

    6 And now my head shall be lifted up

        above my enemies all around me,

      and I will offer in his tent

        sacrifices with shouts of joy;

      I will sing and make melody to the Lord.

    7   Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;

          be gracious to me and answer me!

    8   You have said, “Seek my face.”

        My heart says to you,

          “Your face, Lord, do I seek.”

    9   Hide not your face from me.

        Turn not your servant away in anger,

          O you who have been my help.

        Cast me not off; forsake me not,

          O God of my salvation!

    10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me,

          but the Lord will take me in.

    11 Teach me your way, O Lord,

          and lead me on a level path

          because of my enemies.

    12 Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;

          for false witnesses have risen against me,

          and they breathe out violence.

    13 I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord

          in the land of the living!

    14 Wait for the Lord;

          be strong, and let your heart take courage;

          wait for the Lord!

    To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

    1 May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble!

        May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!

    2 May he send you help from the sanctuary

        and give you support from Zion!

    3 May he remember all your offerings

        and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah

    4 May he grant you your heart’s desire

        and fulfill all your plans!

    5 May we shout for joy over your salvation,

        and in the name of our God set up our banners!

      May the LORD fulfill all your petitions!

    6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed;

        he will answer him from his holy heaven

        with the saving might of his right hand.

    7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,

        but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.

    8 They collapse and fall,

        but we rise and stand upright.

    9 O LORD, save the king!

    May he answer us when we call.

Ps19- 2020-06-15

  • Bible Text: Psalm 19

    To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

    1 The heavens declare the glory of God,
        and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
    Day to day pours out speech,
        and night to night reveals knowledge.
    There is no speech, nor are there words,
        whose voice is not heard.
    Their voice goes out through all the earth,
        and their words to the end of the world.
    In them he has set a tent for the sun,
        which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
        and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
    Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
        and its circuit to the end of them,
        and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

    The law of the Lord is perfect,
        reviving the soul;
    the testimony of the Lord is sure,
        making wise the simple;
    the precepts of the Lord are right,
        rejoicing the heart;
    the commandment of the Lord is pure,
        enlightening the eyes;
    the fear of the Lord is clean,
        enduring forever;
    the rules of the Lord are true,
        and righteous altogether.
    10 More to be desired are they than gold,
        even much fine gold;
    sweeter also than honey
        and drippings of the honeycomb.
    11 Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
        in keeping them there is great reward.

    12 Who can discern his errors?
        Declare me innocent from hidden faults.
    13 Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins;
        let them not have dominion over me!
    Then I shall be blameless,
        and innocent of great transgression.

    14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
        be acceptable in your sight,
        Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

    A Psalm of David.

    1 O LORD, who shall sojourn in your tent?

        Who shall dwell on your holy hill?

    2 He who walks blamelessly and does what is right

        and speaks truth in his heart;

    3 who does not slander with his tongue

        and does no evil to his neighbor,

        nor takes up a reproach against his friend;

    4 in whose eyes a vile person is despised,

        but who honors those who fear the Lord;

        who swears to his own hurt and does not change;

    5 who does not put out his money at interest

        and does not take a bribe against the innocent.

    He who does these things shall never be moved.
