    1 Praise the Lord!

    Praise the Lord from the heavens;

        praise him in the heights!

    2 Praise him, all his angels;

        praise him, all his hosts!

    3 Praise him, sun and moon,

        praise him, all you shining stars!

    4 Praise him, you highest heavens,

        and you waters above the heavens!

    5 Let them praise the name of the Lord!

        For he commanded and they were created.

    6 And he established them forever and ever;

        he gave a decree, and it shall not pass away.

    7 Praise the Lord from the earth,

        you great sea creatures and all deeps,

    8 fire and hail, snow and mist,

        stormy wind fulfilling his word!

    9 Mountains and all hills,

        fruit trees and all cedars!

    10 Beasts and all livestock,

        creeping things and flying birds!

    11 Kings of the earth and all peoples,

        princes and all rulers of the earth!

    12 Young men and maidens together,

        old men and children!

    13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,

        for his name alone is exalted;

        his majesty is above earth and heaven.

    14 He has raised up a horn for his people,

        praise for all his saints,

        for the people of Israel who are near to him.

        Praise the Lord!

Ps147- 2020-08-03

  • Journal
  • Bible Text: Psalm 147

    1 Praise the Lord!

    For it is good to sing praises to our God;

        for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.

    2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem;

        he gathers the outcasts of Israel.

    3 He heals the brokenhearted

        and binds up their wounds.

    4 He determines the number of the stars;

        he gives to all of them their names.

    5 Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;

        his understanding is beyond measure.

    6 The Lord lifts up the humble;

        he casts the wicked to the ground.

    7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;

        make melody to our God on the lyre!

    8 He covers the heavens with clouds;

        he prepares rain for the earth;

        he makes grass grow on the hills.

    9 He gives to the beasts their food,

        and to the young ravens that cry.

    10 His delight is not in the strength of the horse,

        nor his pleasure in the legs of a man,

    11 but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him,

        in those who hope in his steadfast love.

    12 Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem!

        Praise your God, O Zion!

    13 For he strengthens the bars of your gates;

        he blesses your children within you.

    14 He makes peace in your borders;

        he fills you with the finest of the wheat.

    15 He sends out his command to the earth;

        his word runs swiftly.

    16 He gives snow like wool;

        he scatters frost like ashes.

    17 He hurls down his crystals of ice like crumbs;

        who can stand before his cold?

    18 He sends out his word, and melts them;

        he makes his wind blow and the waters flow.

    19 He declares his word to Jacob,

        his statutes and rules to Israel.

    20 He has not dealt thus with any other nation;

        they do not know his rules.

       Praise the Lord!

  • Bible Text: Psalm 121

    A Song of Ascents.

    1 I lift up my eyes to the hills.

        From where does my help come?

    2 My help comes from the Lord,

        who made heaven and earth.

    3 He will not let your foot be moved;

        he who keeps you will not slumber.

    4 Behold, he who keeps Israel

        will neither slumber nor sleep.

    5 The Lord is your keeper;

        the Lord is your shade on your right hand.

    6 The sun shall not strike you by day,

        nor the moon by night.

    7 The Lord will keep you from all evil;

        he will keep your life.

    8 The Lord will keep

        your going out and your coming in

        from this time forth and forevermore.

Ps116- 2020-07-27

  • Journal
  • Bible Text: Psalm 116

    1 I love the Lord, because he has heard

        my voice and my pleas for mercy.

    2 Because he inclined his ear to me,

        therefore I will call on him as long as I live.

    3 The snares of death encompassed me;

        the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me;

        I suffered distress and anguish.

    4 Then I called on the name of the Lord:

        “O Lord, I pray, deliver my soul!”

    5 Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;

        our God is merciful.

    6 The Lord preserves the simple;

        when I was brought low, he saved me.

    7 Return, O my soul, to your rest;

        for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.

    8 For you have delivered my soul from death,

        my eyes from tears,

        my feet from stumbling;

    9 I will walk before the Lord

        in the land of the living.

    10 I believed, even when I spoke:

        “I am greatly afflicted”;

    11 I said in my alarm,

        “All mankind are liars.”

    12 What shall I render to the Lord

        for all his benefits to me?

    13 I will lift up the cup of salvation

        and call on the name of the Lord,

    14 I will pay my vows to the Lord

        in the presence of all his people.

    15 Precious in the sight of the Lord

        is the death of his saints.

    16 O Lord, I am your servant;

        I am your servant, the son of your maidservant.

        You have loosed my bonds.

    17 I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving

        and call on the name of the Lord.

    18 I will pay my vows to the Lord

        in the presence of all his people,

    19 in the courts of the house of the Lord,

        in your midst, O Jerusalem.

        Praise the Lord!

Ps103- 2020-07-24

  • Journal
  • Bible Text: Psalm 103

    Of David.

    1 Bless the Lord, O my soul,

        and all that is within me,

        bless his holy name!

    2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,

        and forget not all his benefits,

    3 who forgives all your iniquity,

        who heals all your diseases,

    4 who redeems your life from the pit,

        who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,

    5 who satisfies you with good

        so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

    6 The Lord works righteousness

        and justice for all who are oppressed.

    7 He made known his ways to Moses,

        his acts to the people of Israel.

    8 The Lord is merciful and gracious,

        slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

    9 He will not always chide,

        nor will he keep his anger forever.

    10 He does not deal with us according to our sins,

        nor repay us according to our iniquities.

    11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,

        so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;

    12 as far as the east is from the west,

        so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

    13 As a father shows compassion to his children,

        so the Lord shows compassion to 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;

        he flourishes like a flower of the field;

    16 for the wind passes over it, and it is gone,

        and its place knows it no more.

    17 But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to   

        everlasting on those who fear him,

        and his righteousness to children’s children,

    18 to those who keep his covenant

        and remember to do his commandments.

    19 The Lord has established his throne in the heavens,

        and his kingdom rules over all.

    20 Bless the Lord, O you his angels,

        you mighty ones who do his word,

        obeying the voice of his word!

    21 Bless the Lord, all his hosts,

        his ministers, who do his will!

    22 Bless the Lord, all his works,

        in all places of his dominion.

        Bless the Lord, O my soul!

Ps91- 2020-07-20

  • Journal
  • Bible Text: Psalm 91

    1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

        will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

    2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,

        my God, in whom I trust.”

    3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler

        and from the deadly pestilence.

    4 He will cover you with his pinions,

        and under his wings you will find refuge;

        his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

    5 You will not fear the terror of the night,

        nor the arrow that flies by day,

    6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,

        nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

    7 A thousand may fall at your side,

        ten thousand at your right hand,

        but it will not come near you.

    8 You will only look with your eyes

        and see the recompense of the wicked.

    9 Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—

        the Most High, who is my refuge—

    10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you,

        no plague come near your tent.

    11 For he will command his angels concerning you

        to guard you in all your ways.

    12 On their hands they will bear you up,

        lest you strike your foot against a stone.

    13 You will tread on the lion and the adder;

        the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.

    14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;

        I will protect him, because he knows my name.

    15 When he calls to me, I will answer him;

        I will be with him in trouble;

        I will rescue him and honor him.

    16 With long life I will satisfy him

        and show him my salvation.”

Ps62- 2020-07-17

  • Journal
  • Bible Text: Psalm 62

    To the choirmaster: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.

    1 For God alone my soul waits in silence;

        from him comes my salvation.

    2 He alone is my rock and my salvation,

        my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.

    3 How long will all of you attack a man

        to batter him,

        like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?

    4 They only plan to thrust him down from his high position.

        They take pleasure in falsehood.

    They bless with their mouths,

        but inwardly they curse. Selah

    5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,

        for my hope is from him.

    6 He only is my rock and my salvation,

        my fortress; I shall not be shaken.

    7 On God rests my salvation and my glory;

        my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

    8 Trust in him at all times, O people;

        pour out your heart before him;

        God is a refuge for us. Selah

    9 Those of low estate are but a breath;

        those of high estate are a delusion;

    in the balances they go up;

        they are together lighter than a breath.

    10 Put no trust in extortion;

        set no vain hopes on robbery;

        if riches increase, set not your heart on them.

    11 Once God has spoken;

        twice have I heard this:

        that power belongs to God,

    12     and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love.

        For you will render to a man

           according to his work.

    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.

Ps46- 2020-07-06

  • Journal
  • 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
