1 I will exalt you, Lord, for you rescued me.

6 When I was prosperous, I said,
8 I cried out to you, O Lord.
11 You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing.

1 O Lord, I have come to you for protection;
6 I hate those who worship worthless idols.
9 Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am in distress.
14 But I am trusting you, O Lord,
19 How great is the goodness
21 Praise the Lord,
23 Love the Lord, all you godly ones!
A psalm[c] of David.
1 Oh, what joy for those
5 Finally, I confessed all my sins to you
6 Therefore, let all the godly pray to you while there is still time,
8 The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.
10 Many sorrows come to the wicked,
1 Let the godly sing for joy to the Lord;
6 The Lord merely spoke,
10 The Lord frustrates the plans of the nations
12 What joy for the nation whose God is the Lord,
13 The Lord looks down from heaven
18 But the Lord watches over those who fear him,
20 We put our hope in the Lord.
A psalm of David, regarding the time he pretended to be insane in front of Abimelech, who sent him away.
1 I will praise the Lord at all times.
4 I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me.
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good.
11 Come, my children, and listen to me,
15 The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right;
19 The righteous person faces many troubles,
21 Calamity will surely destroy the wicked,
A psalm of David.
1 O Lord, oppose those who oppose me.
9 Then I will rejoice in the Lord.
11 Malicious witnesses testify against me.
17 How long, O Lord, will you look on and do nothing?
22 O Lord, you know all about this.
26 May those who rejoice at my troubles
For the choir director: A psalm of David, the servant of the Lord.
1 Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts.[f]
5 Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens;
10 Pour out your unfailing love on those who love you;
A psalm of David.
1 Don’t worry about the wicked
3 Trust in the Lord and do good.
5 Commit everything you do to the Lord.
7 Be still in the presence of the Lord,
8 Stop being angry!
10 Soon the wicked will disappear.
12 The wicked plot against the godly;
14 The wicked draw their swords
16 It is better to be godly and have little
18 Day by day the Lord takes care of the innocent,
20 But the wicked will die.
21 The wicked borrow and never repay,
23 The Lord directs the steps of the godly.
25 Once I was young, and now I am old.
27 Turn from evil and do good,
He will keep them safe forever,

32 The wicked wait in ambush for the godly,
34 Put your hope in the Lord.
35 I have seen wicked and ruthless people
37 Look at those who are honest and good,
39 The Lord rescues the godly;

1 O Lord, don’t rebuke me in your anger
9 You know what I long for, Lord;
