Psalm 128 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Psalm 128

Blessings for Those Who Fear God

A song of ascents.

How happy is everyone who fears the Lord,
who walks in His ways!
You will surely eat
what your hands have worked for.
You will be happy,
and it will go well for you.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house,
your sons, like young olive trees
around your table.
In this very way
the man who fears the Lord
will be blessed.

May the Lord bless you from Zion,
so that you will see the prosperity of Jerusalem
all the days of your life
and will see your children’s children!

Peace be with Israel.

Psalm 129 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Psalm 129

Protection of the Oppressed

A song of ascents.

Since my youth they have often attacked me—
let Israel say—
Since my youth they have often attacked me,
but they have not prevailed against me.
Plowmen plowed over my back;
they made their furrows long.
The Lord is righteous;
He has cut the ropes of the wicked.

Let all who hate Zion
be driven back in disgrace.
Let them be like grass on the rooftops,
which withers before it grows up[a]
and can’t even fill the hands of the reaper
or the arms of the one who binds sheaves.
Then none who pass by will say,
“May the Lord’s blessing be on you.”

We bless you in the name of Yahweh.

Psalm 130 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Psalm 130

Awaiting Redemption

A song of ascents.

Out of the depths I call to You, Yahweh!
Lord, listen to my voice;
let Your ears be attentive
to my cry for help.

Yahweh, if You considered sins,
Lord, who could stand?
But with You there is forgiveness,
so that You may be revered.

I wait for Yahweh; I wait
and put my hope in His word.
I wait for the Lord
more than watchmen for the morning—
more than watchmen for the morning.

Israel, put your hope in the Lord.
For there is faithful love with the Lord,
and with Him is redemption in abundance.
And He will redeem Israel
from all its sins.

Psalm 132 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Psalm 132

David and Zion Chosen

A song of ascents.

Lord, remember David
and all the hardships he endured,
and how he swore an oath to the Lord,
making a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
“I will not enter my house[a]
or get into my bed,[b]
I will not allow my eyes to sleep
or my eyelids to slumber
until I find a place for the Lord,
a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

We heard of the ark in Ephrathah;[c]
we found it in the fields of Jaar.[d]
Let us go to His dwelling place;
let us worship at His footstool.
Rise up, Lord, come to Your resting place,
You and Your powerful ark.
May Your priests be clothed with righteousness,
and may Your godly people shout for joy.
10 Because of Your servant David,
do not reject Your anointed one.[e]

11 The Lord swore an oath to David,
a promise He will not abandon:
“I will set one of your descendants[f]
on your throne.
12 If your sons keep My covenant
and My decrees that I will teach them,
their sons will also sit on your throne forever.”

13 For the Lord has chosen Zion;
He has desired it for His home:
14 “This is My resting place forever;
I will make My home here
because I have desired it.
15 I will abundantly bless its food;
I will satisfy its needy with bread.
16 I will clothe its priests with salvation,
and its godly people will shout for joy.
17 There I will make a horn grow for David;
I have prepared a lamp for My anointed one.
18 I will clothe his enemies with shame,
but the crown he wears[g] will be glorious.”

Psalm 134 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Psalm 134

Call to Evening Worship

A song of ascents.

Now praise the Lord,
all you servants of the Lord
who stand in the Lord’s house at night!
Lift up your hands in the holy place
and praise the Lord!

May the Lord,
Maker of heaven and earth,
bless you from Zion.

Psalm 135 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Psalm 135

Yahweh Is Great

Hallelujah!
Praise the name of Yahweh.
Give praise, you servants of Yahweh
who stand in the house of Yahweh,
in the courts of the house of our God.
Praise Yahweh, for Yahweh is good;
sing praise to His name, for it is delightful.
For Yahweh has chosen Jacob for Himself,
Israel as His treasured possession.

For I know that Yahweh is great;
our Lord is greater than all gods.
Yahweh does whatever He pleases
in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and all the depths.
He causes the clouds to rise from the ends of the earth.
He makes lightning for the rain
and brings the wind from His storehouses.

He struck down the firstborn of Egypt,
both man and beast.
He sent signs and wonders against you, Egypt,
against Pharaoh and all his officials.
10 He struck down many nations
and slaughtered mighty kings:
11 Sihon king of the Amorites,
Og king of Bashan,
and all the kings of Canaan.
12 He gave their land as an inheritance,
an inheritance to His people Israel.

13 Yahweh, Your name endures forever,
Your reputation, Yahweh,
through all generations.
14 For Yahweh will vindicate His people
and have compassion on His servants.

15 The idols of the nations are of silver and gold,
made by human hands.
16 They have mouths but cannot speak,
eyes, but cannot see.
17 They have ears but cannot hear;
indeed, there is no breath in their mouths.
18 Those who make them are just like them,
as are all who trust in them.

19 House of Israel, praise Yahweh!
House of Aaron, praise Yahweh!
20 House of Levi, praise Yahweh!
You who revere the Lord, praise the Lord!
21 May the Lord be praised from Zion;
He dwells in Jerusalem.
Hallelujah!
