Psalm 69-78 English Standard Version (ESV)
Save Me, O God
To the choirmaster: according to Lilies. Of David.
69 Save me, O God!
4 More in number than the hairs of my head
6 Let not those who hope in you be put to shame through me,
9 For zeal for your house has consumed me,
13 But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord.
16 Answer me, O Lord, for your steadfast love is good;
19 You know my reproach,
22 Let their own table before them become a snare;
29 But I am afflicted and in pain;
30 I will praise the name of God with a song;
34 Let heaven and earth praise him,
O Lord, Do Not Delay
To the choirmaster. Of David, for the memorial offering.
70 Make haste, O God, to deliver me!
4 May all who seek you
Forsake Me Not When My Strength Is Spent
71 In you, O Lord, do I take refuge;
4 Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked,
7 I have been as a portent to many,
12 O God, be not far from me;
17 O God, from my youth you have taught me,
22 I will also praise you with the harp
Give the King Your Justice
72 Give the king your justice, O God,
5 May they fear you[e] while the sun endures,
8 May he have dominion from sea to sea,
12 For he delivers the needy when he calls,
15 Long may he live;
18 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
20 The prayers of David, the son of Jesse, are ended.
God Is My Strength and Portion Forever
A Psalm of Asaph.
73 Truly God is good to Israel,
4 For they have no pangs until death;
16 But when I thought how to understand this,
18 Truly you set them in slippery places;
23 Nevertheless, I am continually with you;
27 For behold, those who are far from you shall perish;
Arise, O God, Defend Your Cause
A Maskil[i] of Asaph.
74 O God, why do you cast us off forever?
4 Your foes have roared in the midst of your meeting place;
9 We do not see our signs;
12 Yet God my King is from of old,
18 Remember this, O Lord, how the enemy scoffs,
20 Have regard for the covenant,
22 Arise, O God, defend your cause;
God Will Judge with Equity
To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.
75 We give thanks to you, O God;
2 “At the set time that I appoint
6 For not from the east or from the west
9 But I will declare it forever;
Who Can Stand Before You?
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.
76 In Judah God is known;
4 Glorious are you, more majestic
7 But you, you are to be feared!

In the Day of Trouble I Seek the Lord
To the choirmaster: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.

4 You hold my eyelids open;
10 Then I said, “I will appeal to this,
11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
16 When the waters saw you, O God,
Tell the Coming Generation
A Maskil[r] of Asaph.
78 Give ear, O my people, to my teaching;
5 He established a testimony in Jacob
9 The Ephraimites, armed with[s] the bow,
17 Yet they sinned still more against him,
21 Therefore, when the Lord heard, he was full of wrath;
32 In spite of all this, they still sinned;
56 Yet they tested and rebelled against the Most High God
67 He rejected the tent of Joseph;
