    Psalm 64

    To the leader. A Psalm of David.

    1 Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint;
    preserve my life from the dread enemy.
    2 Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked,
    from the scheming of evildoers,
    3 who whet their tongues like swords,
    who aim bitter words like arrows,
    4 shooting from ambush at the blameless;
    they shoot suddenly and without fear.
    5 They hold fast to their evil purpose;
    they talk of laying snares secretly,
    thinking, ‘Who can see us?*
    6 Who can search out our crimes?*
    We have thought out a cunningly conceived plot.’
    For the human heart and mind are deep.

    7 But God will shoot his arrow at them;
    they will be wounded suddenly.
    8 Because of their tongue he will bring them to ruin;*
    all who see them will shake with horror.
    9 Then everyone will fear;
    they will tell what God has brought about,
    and ponder what he has done.

    10 Let the righteous rejoice in the Lord
    and take refuge in him.
    Let all the upright in heart glory.

    Psalm 104

    1 Bless the Lord, O my soul.
    O Lord my God, you are very great.
    You are clothed with honour and majesty,
    2 wrapped in light as with a garment.
    You stretch out the heavens like a tent,
    3 you set the beams of your* chambers on the waters,
    you make the clouds your* chariot,
    you ride on the wings of the wind,
    4 you make the winds your* messengers,
    fire and flame your* ministers.

    5 You set the earth on its foundations,
    so that it shall never be shaken.
    6 You cover it with the deep as with a garment;
    the waters stood above the mountains.
    7 At your rebuke they flee;
    at the sound of your thunder they take to flight.
    8 They rose up to the mountains, ran down to the valleys
    to the place that you appointed for them.
    9 You set a boundary that they may not pass,
    so that they might not again cover the earth.

    10 You make springs gush forth in the valleys;
    they flow between the hills,
    11 giving drink to every wild animal;
    the wild asses quench their thirst.
    12 By the streams* the birds of the air have their habitation;
    they sing among the branches.
    13 From your lofty abode you water the mountains;
    the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work.

    14 You cause the grass to grow for the cattle,
    and plants for people to use,*
    to bring forth food from the earth,
    15 and wine to gladden the human heart,
    oil to make the face shine,
    and bread to strengthen the human heart.
    16 The trees of the Lord are watered abundantly,
    the cedars of Lebanon that he planted.
    17 In them the birds build their nests;
    the stork has its home in the fir trees.
    18 The high mountains are for the wild goats;
    the rocks are a refuge for the coneys.
    19 You have made the moon to mark the seasons;
    the sun knows its time for setting.
    20 You make darkness, and it is night,
    when all the animals of the forest come creeping out.
    21 The young lions roar for their prey,
    seeking their food from God.
    22 When the sun rises, they withdraw
    and lie down in their dens.
    23 People go out to their work
    and to their labour until the evening.

    24 O Lord, how manifold are your works!
    In wisdom you have made them all;
    the earth is full of your creatures.
    25 Yonder is the sea, great and wide,
    creeping things innumerable are there,
    living things both small and great.
    26 There go the ships,
    and Leviathan that you formed to sport in it.

    27 These all look to you
    to give them their food in due season;
    28 when you give to them, they gather it up;
    when you open your hand, they are filled with good things.
    29 When you hide your face, they are dismayed;
    when you take away their breath, they die
    and return to their dust.
    30 When you send forth your spirit,* they are created;
    and you renew the face of the ground.

    31 May the glory of the Lord endure for ever;
    may the Lord rejoice in his works—
    32 who looks on the earth and it trembles,
    who touches the mountains and they smoke.
    33 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;
    I will sing praise to my God while I have being.
    34 May my meditation be pleasing to him,
    for I rejoice in the Lord.
    35 Let sinners be consumed from the earth,
    and let the wicked be no more.
    Bless the Lord, O my soul.
    Praise the Lord!

    Psalm 120

    A Song of Ascents.
    1 In my distress I cry to the Lord,
    that he may answer me:
    2 ‘Deliver me, O Lord,
    from lying lips,
    from a deceitful tongue.’

    3 What shall be given to you?
    And what more shall be done to you,
    you deceitful tongue?
    4 A warrior’s sharp arrows,
    with glowing coals of the broom tree!

    5 Woe is me, that I am an alien in Meshech,
    that I must live among the tents of Kedar.
    6 Too long have I had my dwelling
    among those who hate peace.
    7 I am for peace;
    but when I speak,
    they are for war.

    Psalm 91

    1 You who live in the shelter of the Most High,
    who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,*
    2 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,
    or the arrow that flies by day,
    6 or the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
    or 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 punishment of the wicked.

    9 Because you have made the Lord your refuge,*
    the Most High your dwelling-place,
    10 no evil shall befall you,
    no scourge 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,
    so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.
    13 You will tread on the lion and the adder,
    the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.

    14 Those who love me, I will deliver;
    I will protect those who know my name.
    15 When they call to me, I will answer them;
    I will be with them in trouble,
    I will rescue them and honor them.
    16 With long life I will satisfy them,
    and show them my salvation.

    Psalm 71

    1 In you, O Lord, I take refuge;
    let me never be put to shame.
    2 In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me;
    incline your ear to me and save me.
    3 Be to me a rock of refuge,
    a strong fortress,* to save me,
    for you are my rock and my fortress.

    4 Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked,
    from the grasp of the unjust and cruel.
    5 For you, O Lord, are my hope,
    my trust, O Lord, from my youth.
    6 Upon you I have leaned from my birth;
    it was you who took me from my mother’s womb.
    My praise is continually of you.

    7 I have been like a portent to many,
    but you are my strong refuge.
    8 My mouth is filled with your praise,
    and with your glory all day long.
    9 Do not cast me off in the time of old age;
    do not forsake me when my strength is spent.
    10 For my enemies speak concerning me,
    and those who watch for my life consult together.
    11 They say, ‘Pursue and seize that person
    whom God has forsaken,
    for there is no one to deliver.’

    12 O God, do not be far from me;
    O my God, make haste to help me!
    13 Let my accusers be put to shame and consumed;
    let those who seek to hurt me
    be covered with scorn and disgrace.
    14 But I will hope continually,
    and will praise you yet more and more.
    15 My mouth will tell of your righteous acts,
    of your deeds of salvation all day long,
    though their number is past my knowledge.
    16 I will come praising the mighty deeds of the Lord God,
    I will praise your righteousness, yours alone.

    17 O God, from my youth you have taught me,
    and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds.
    18 So even to old age and grey hairs,
    O God, do not forsake me,
    until I proclaim your might
    to all the generations to come.*
    Your power 19and your righteousness, O God,
    reach the high heavens.

    You who have done great things,
    O God, who is like you?
    20 You who have made me see many troubles and calamities
    will revive me again;
    from the depths of the earth
    you will bring me up again.
    21 You will increase my honour,
    and comfort me once again.

    22 I will also praise you with the harp
    for your faithfulness, O my God;
    I will sing praises to you with the lyre,
    O Holy One of Israel.
    23 My lips will shout for joy
    when I sing praises to you;
    my soul also, which you have rescued.
    24 All day long my tongue will talk of your righteous help,
    for those who tried to do me harm
    have been put to shame, and disgraced.

    Psalm 40

    To the leader. Of David. A Psalm.

    1 I waited patiently for the Lord;
    he inclined to me and heard my cry.
    2 He drew me up from the desolate pit,*
    out of the miry bog,
    and set my feet upon a rock,
    making my steps secure.
    3 He put a new song in my mouth,
    a song of praise to our God.
    Many will see and fear,
    and put their trust in the Lord.

    4 Happy are those who make
    the Lord their trust,
    who do not turn to the proud,
    to those who go astray after false gods.
    5 You have multiplied, O Lord my God,
    your wondrous deeds and your thoughts towards us;
    none can compare with you.
    Were I to proclaim and tell of them,
    they would be more than can be counted.

    6 Sacrifice and offering you do not desire,
    but you have given me an open ear.*
    Burnt-offering and sin-offering
    you have not required.
    7 Then I said, ‘Here I am;
    in the scroll of the book it is written of me.*
    8 I delight to do your will, O my God;
    your law is within my heart.’

    9 I have told the glad news of deliverance
    in the great congregation;
    see, I have not restrained my lips,
    as you know, O Lord.
    10 I have not hidden your saving help within my heart,
    I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation;
    I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness
    from the great congregation.

    11 Do not, O Lord, withhold
    your mercy from me;
    let your steadfast love and your faithfulness
    keep me safe for ever.
    12 For evils have encompassed me
    without number;
    my iniquities have overtaken me,
    until I cannot see;
    they are more than the hairs of my head,
    and my heart fails me.

    13 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me;
    O Lord, make haste to help me.
    14 Let all those be put to shame and confusion
    who seek to snatch away my life;
    let those be turned back and brought to dishonour
    who desire my hurt.
    15 Let those be appalled because of their shame
    who say to me, ‘Aha, Aha!’

    16 But may all who seek you
    rejoice and be glad in you;
    may those who love your salvation
    say continually, ‘Great is the Lord!’
    17 As for me, I am poor and needy,
    but the Lord takes thought for me.
    You are my help and my deliverer;
    do not delay, O my God.

    Psalm 56

    To the leader: according to The Dove on Far-off Terebinths. Of David. A Miktam, when the Philistines seized him in Gath.

    1 Be gracious to me, O God, for people trample on me;
    all day long foes oppress me;
    2 my enemies trample on me all day long,
    for many fight against me.
    O Most High, 3when I am afraid,
    I put my trust in you.
    4 In God, whose word I praise,
    in God I trust; I am not afraid;
    what can flesh do to me?

    5 All day long they seek to injure my cause;
    all their thoughts are against me for evil.
    6 They stir up strife, they lurk,
    they watch my steps.
    As they hoped to have my life,
    7 so repay* them for their crime;
    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 record?
    9 Then my enemies will retreat
    on 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 am not afraid.
    What can a mere mortal do to me?

    12 My vows to you I must perform, O God;
    I will render thank-offerings to you.
    13 For you have delivered my soul from death,
    and my feet from falling,
    so that I may walk before God
    in the light of life.

    Psalm 20

    To the leader. A Psalm of David.

    1 The Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
    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 favour your burnt sacrifices.

    4 May he grant you your heart’s desire,
    and fulfil all your plans.
    5 May we shout for joy over your victory,
    and in the name of our God set up our banners.
    May the Lord fulfil all your petitions.

    6 Now I know that the Lord will help his anointed;
    he will answer him from his holy heaven
    with mighty victories by his right hand.
    7 Some take pride in chariots, and some in horses,
    but our pride is in the name of the Lord our God.
    8 They will collapse and fall,
    but we shall rise and stand upright.

    9 Give victory to the king, O Lord;
    answer us when we call.*
