Psalm 25

A Psalm of David.

1Unto thee, O Jehovah, do I lift up my soul. 2O my God, in thee have I trusted, Let me not be put to shame; Let not mine enemies triumph over me. 3Yea, none that wait for thee shall be put to shame: They shall be put to shame that deal treacherously without cause. 4Show me thy ways, O Jehovah; Teach me thy paths. 5Guide me in thy truth, and teach me; For thou art the God of my salvation; For thee do I wait all the day. 6Remember, O Jehovah, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindness; For they have been ever of old. 7Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: According to thy lovingkindness remember thou me, For thy goodness' sake, O Jehovah. 8Good and upright is Jehovah: Therefore will he instruct sinners in the way. 9The meek will he guide in justice; And the meek will he teach his way. 10All the paths of Jehovah are lovingkindness and truth Unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. 11For thy name's sake, O Jehovah, Pardon mine iniquity, for it is great. 12What man is he that feareth Jehovah? Him shall he instruct in the way that he shall choose. 13His soul shall dwell at ease; And his seed shall inherit the land. 14The friendship of Jehovah is with them that fear him; And he will show them his covenant. 15Mine eyes are ever toward Jehovah; For he will pluck my feet out of the net. 16Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; For I am desolate and afflicted. 17The troubles of my heart are enlarged: Oh bring thou me out of my distresses. 18Consider mine affliction and my travail; And forgive all my sins. 19Consider mine enemies, for they are many; And they hate me with cruel hatred. 20Oh keep my soul, and deliver me: Let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in thee. 21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for thee. 22Redeem Israel, O God, Out all of his troubles.

Psalm 26  A Psalm of David.

1Judge me, O Jehovah, for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in Jehovah without wavering. 2Examine me, O Jehovah, and prove me; Try my heart and my mind. 3For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes; And I have walked in thy truth. 4I have not sat with men of falsehood; Neither will I go in with dissemblers. 5I hate the assembly of evil-doers, And will not sit with the wicked. 6I will wash my hands in innocency: So will I compass thine altar, O Jehovah; 7That I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard, And tell of all thy wondrous works. 8Jehovah, I love the habitation of thy house, And the place where thy glory dwelleth. 9Gather not my soul with sinners, Nor my life with men of blood; 10In whose hands is wickedness, And their right hand is full of bribes. 11But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: Redeem me, and be merciful unto me. 12My foot standeth in an even place: In the congregations will I bless Jehovah.

Psalm 27  A Psalm of David.

1Jehovah is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? Jehovah is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? 2When evil-doers came upon me to eat up my flesh, Even mine adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell. 3Though a host should encamp against me, My heart shall not fear: Though war should rise against me, Even then will I be confident. 4One thing have I asked of Jehovah, that will I seek after; That I may dwell in the house of Jehovah all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of Jehovah, And to inquire in his temple. 5For in the day of trouble he will keep me secretly in his pavilion: In the covert of his tabernacle will he hide me; He will lift me up upon a rock. 6And now shall my head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me. And I will offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto Jehovah. 7Hear, O Jehovah, when I cry with my voice: Have mercy also upon me, and answer me. 8When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; My heart said unto thee, Thy face, Jehovah, will I seek. 9Hide not thy face from me; Put not thy servant away in anger: Thou hast been my help; Cast me not off, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation. 10When my father and my mother forsake me, Then Jehovah will take me up. 11Teach me thy way, O Jehovah; And lead me in a plain path, Because of mine enemies. 12Deliver me not over unto the will of mine adversaries: For false witnesses are risen up against me, And such as breathe out cruelty. 13I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of Jehovah In the land of the living. 14Wait for Jehovah: Be strong, and let thy heart take courage; Yea, wait thou for Jehovah.

Psalm 28  A Psalm of David.

1Unto thee, O Jehovah, will I call: My rock, be not thou deaf unto me; Lest, if thou be silent unto me, I become like them that go down into the pit. 2Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, When I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle. 3Draw me not away with the wicked, And with the workers of iniquity; That speak peace with their neighbors, But mischief is in their hearts. 4Give them according to their work, and according to the wickedness of their doings: Give them after the operation of their hands; Render to them their desert. 5Because they regard not the works of Jehovah, Nor the operation of his hands, He will break them down and not build them up. 6Blessed be Jehovah, Because he hath heard the voice of my supplications. 7Jehovah is my strength and my shield; My heart hath trusted in him, and I am helped: Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; And with my song will I praise him. 8Jehovah is their strength, And he is a stronghold of salvation to his anointed. 9Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: Be their shepherd also, and bear them up for ever.

Psalm 29  A Psalm of David.

1Ascribe unto Jehovah, O ye sons of the mighty, Ascribe unto Jehovah glory and strength. 2Ascribe unto Jehovah the glory due unto his name; Worship Jehovah in holy array. 3The voice of Jehovah is upon the waters: The God of glory thundereth, Even Jehovah upon many waters. 4The voice of Jehovah is powerful; The voice of Jehovah is full of majesty. 5The voice of Jehovah breaketh the cedars; Yea, Jehovah breaketh in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. 6He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild-ox. 7The voice of Jehovah cleaveth the flames of fire. 8The voice of Jehovah shaketh the wilderness; Jehovah shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh. 9The voice of Jehovah maketh the hinds to calve, And strippeth the forests bare: And in his temple everything saith, Glory. 10Jehovah sat as King at the Flood; Yea, Jehovah sitteth as King for ever. 11Jehovah will give strength unto his people; Jehovah will bless his people with peace.
