15 O Lord, who may [a]abide in Your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy hill? 2 He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, And speaks truth in his heart. 3 He does not slander [b]with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor takes up a reproach against his friend; 4 In [c]whose eyes a reprobate is despised, But [d]who honors those who fear the Lord; He swears to his own hurt and does not change; 5 He does not put out his money [e]at interest, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.
For the choir director; according to the [a]Shoshannim. A [b]Maskil of the sons of Korah. A Song of Love.
45 My heart [c]overflows with a good theme; I [d]address my [e]verses to the [f]King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. 2 You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured [g]upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever.
3 Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O [h]Mighty One, In Your splendor and Your majesty! 4 And in Your majesty ride on victoriously, For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; Let Your right hand teach You [i]awesome things. 5 Your arrows are sharp; The peoples fall under You; Your arrows arein the heart of the King’s enemies.
6 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom. 7 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of joy above Your fellows. 8 All Your garments are fragrant withmyrrh and aloes and cassia; Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad. 9 Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies; At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
10 Listen, O daughter, give attention and incline your ear: Forget your people and your father’s house; 11 Then the King will desire your beauty. Because He is your Lord, bow down to Him. 12 The daughter of Tyre will come with a gift; The rich among the people will seek your favor.
13 The King’s daughter is all glorious within; Her clothing is interwoven with gold. 14 She will be led to the King in embroidered work; The virgins, her companions who follow her, Will be brought to You. 15 They will be led forth with gladness and rejoicing; They will enter into the King’s palace.
16 In place of your fathers will be your sons; You shall make them princes in all the earth. 17 I will cause Your name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the peoples will give You thanks forever and ever.
For the choir director; set to[a]Al-tashheth. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.
75 We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks, For Your name is near; Men declare Your wondrous works. 2 “When I select an appointed time, It is I who judge with equity. 3 “The earth and all who dwell in it [b]melt; It is I who have firmly set its pillars. [c]Selah. 4 “I said to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’ And to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn; 5 Do not lift up your horn on high, Do not speak with insolent [d]pride.’”
6 For not from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the [e]desert comes exaltation; 7 But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another. 8 For a cup is in the hand of the Lord, and the wine foams; It is [f]well mixed, and He pours out of this; Surely all the wicked of the earth must drain anddrink down its dregs.
9 But as for me, I will declare it forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. 10 And all the horns of the wicked [g]He will cut off, Butthe horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
105 Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. 2 Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; [a]Speak of all His [b]wonders. 3 [c]Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad. 4 Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually. 5 Remember His [d]wonders which He has done, His marvels and the judgments [e]uttered by His mouth, 6 O seed of Abraham, His servant, O sons of Jacob, His chosen ones! 7 He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth.
8 He has remembered His covenant forever, The word which He commanded to a thousand generations, 9 Thecovenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac. 10 Then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel as an everlasting covenant, 11 Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan As the [f]portion of your inheritance,” 12 When they were only a few men in number, Very few, and strangers in it. 13 And they wandered about from nation to nation, From one kingdom to another people. 14 He permitted no man to oppress them, And He reproved kings for their sakes: 15 “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.”
16 And He called for a famine upon the land; He broke the whole staff of bread. 17 He sent a man before them, Joseph, who was sold as a slave. 18 They afflicted his feet with fetters, [g]He himself was laid in irons; 19 Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of the Lord[h]tested him. 20 The king sent and released him, The ruler of peoples, and set him free. 21 He made him lord of his house And ruler over all his possessions, 22 To [i]imprison his princes [j]at will, That he might teach his elders wisdom. 23 Israel also came into Egypt; Thus Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham. 24 And He caused His people to be very fruitful, And made them stronger than their adversaries.
25 He turned their heart to hate His people, To deal craftily with His servants. 26 He sent Moses His servant, AndAaron, whom He had chosen. 27 They [k]performed His wondrous acts among them, And miracles in the land of Ham. 28 He sent darkness and made it dark; And they did not rebel against His words. 29 He turned their waters into blood And caused their fish to die. 30 Their land swarmed with frogs Even in the chambers of their kings. 31 He spoke, and there came a swarm of flies Andgnats in all their territory. 32 He [l]gave them hail for rain, And flaming fire in their land. 33 He struck down their vines also and their fig trees, And shattered the trees of their territory. 34 He spoke, and locusts came, And young locusts, even without number, 35 And ate up all vegetation in their land, And ate up the fruit of their ground. 36 He also struck down all the firstborn in their land, The first fruits of all their vigor.
37 Then He brought them out with silver and gold, And among His tribes there was not one who stumbled. 38 Egypt was glad when they departed, For the dread of them had fallen upon them. 39 He spread a cloud for a [m]covering, And fire to illumine by night. 40 [n]They asked, and He brought quail, And satisfied them with the [o]bread of heaven. 41 He opened the [p]rock and water flowed out; [q]It ran in the dry places like a river. 42 For He remembered His holy word With Abraham His servant; 43 And He brought forth His people with joy, His chosen ones with a joyful shout. 44 He gave them also the lands of the [r]nations, That they might take possession of the fruit of the peoples’ labor, 45 So that they might keep His statutes And observe His laws, [s]Praise [t]the Lord!
Praise the Lord’s Wonderful Works. Vanity of Idols.
135 [a]Praise [b]the Lord! Praise the name of the Lord; Praise Him, O servants of the Lord, 2 You who stand in the house of the Lord, In the courts of the house of our God! 3 [c]Praise [d]the Lord, for the Lord is good; Sing praises to His name, for it is lovely. 4 For [e]the Lord has chosen Jacob for Himself, Israel for His [f]own possession.
5 For I know that the Lord is great And that our Lord is above all gods. 6 Whatever the Lord pleases, He does, In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps. 7 [g]He causes the [h]vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; Who makes lightnings for the rain, Who brings forth the wind from His treasuries.
8 [i]He smote the firstborn of Egypt, [j]Both of man and beast. 9 [k]He sent signs and wonders into your midst, O Egypt, Upon Pharaoh and all his servants. 10 [l]He smote many nations And slew mighty kings, 11 Sihon, king of the Amorites, And Og, king of Bashan, And all the kingdoms of Canaan; 12 And He gave their land as a heritage, A heritage to Israel His people. 13 Your name, O Lord, is everlasting, Your [m]remembrance, O Lord, [n]throughout all generations. 14 For the Lord will judge His people And will have compassion on His servants. 15 The idols of the nations are but silver and gold, The work of man’s hands. 16 They have mouths, but they do not speak; They have eyes, but they do not see; 17 They have ears, but they do not hear, Nor is there any breath at all in their mouths. 18 Those who make them will be like them, Yes, everyone who trusts in them.
19 O house of Israel, bless the Lord; O house of Aaron, bless the Lord; 20 O house of Levi, bless the Lord; You who [o]revere the Lord, bless the Lord. 21 Blessed be the Lordfrom Zion, Who dwells in Jerusalem. [p]Praise [q]the Lord!
15 A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a [a]harsh word stirs up anger. 2 The tongue of the wise makes knowledge [b]acceptable, But the mouth of fools spouts folly. 3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, Watching the evil and the good. 4 A [c]soothing tongue is a tree of life, But perversion in it [d]crushes the spirit. 5 A fool [e]rejects his father’s discipline, But he who regards reproof is sensible. 6 Great wealth is in the house of the righteous, But trouble is in the income of the wicked. 7 The lips of the wise spread knowledge, But the hearts of fools are not so. 8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord, But the prayer of the upright is His delight. 9 The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord, But He loves one who pursues righteousness. 10 Grievous punishment is for him who forsakes the way; He who hates reproof will die. 11 [f]Sheol and [g]Abaddon lie open before the Lord, How much more the hearts of [h]men! 12 A scoffer does not love one who reproves him, He will not go to the wise. 13 A joyful heart makes a [i]cheerful face, But [j]when the heart is sad, the spirit is broken. 14 The mind of the intelligent seeks knowledge, But the mouth of fools feeds on folly. 15 All the days of the afflicted are bad, But a [k]cheerful heart has a continual feast. 16 Better is a little with the [l]fear of the Lord Than great treasure and turmoil with it. 17 Better is a [m]dish of [n]vegetables where love is Than a fattened ox served with hatred. 18 A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, But the slow to anger calms a dispute. 19 The way of the lazy is as a hedge of thorns, But the path of the upright is a highway. 20 A wise son makes a father glad, But a foolish man despises his mother. 21 Folly is joy to him who lacks [o]sense, But a man of understanding walks straight. 22 Without consultation, plans are frustrated, But with many counselors they [p]succeed. 23 A man has joy in an [q]apt answer, And how delightful is a timely word! 24 The path of life leads upward for the wise That he may keep away from [r]Sheol below. 25 The Lord will tear down the house of the proud, But He will establish the boundary of the widow. 26 Evil plans are an abomination to the Lord, But pleasant words are pure. 27 He who profits illicitly troubles his own house, But he who hates bribes will live. 28 The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, But the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things. 29 The Lord is far from the wicked, But He hears the prayer of the righteous. 30 [s]Bright eyes gladden the heart; Good news puts fat on the bones. 31 He whose ear listens to the life-giving reproof Will dwell among the wise. 32 He who neglects discipline despises himself, But he who listens to reproof acquires [t]understanding. 33 The [u]fear of the Lord is the instruction for wisdom, And before honor comes humility.
