Psalm 131 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
131 Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty; neither do I exercise myself with great matters, or in things too high for me.
2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself as a child that is weaned from his mother; my soul is even as a weaned child.
3 Let Israel hope in the Lord from henceforth and for ever.
Psalm 138-139 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
138 I will praise Thee with my whole heart; before the gods will I sing praise unto Thee.
2 I will worship toward Thy holy temple, and praise Thy name for Thy lovingkindness and for Thy truth, for Thou hast magnified Thy word above all Thy name.
3 In the day when I cried, Thou answered me, and strengthened me with strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise Thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of Thy mouth.
5 Yea, they shall sing of the ways of the Lord, for great is the glory of the Lord.
6 Though the Lord be high, yet hath He respect unto the lowly, but the proud He knoweth afar off.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, Thou wilt revive me; Thou shalt stretch forth Thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and Thy right hand shall save me.
8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me; Thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever; forsake not the works of Thine own hands.
139 O Lord, Thou hast searched me and known me.
2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising; Thou understandest my thought afar off.
3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
4 For there is not a word on my tongue, but lo, O Lord, Thou knowest it altogether.
5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid Thine hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
7 Whither shall I go from Thy Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from Thy presence?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, Thou art there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, Thou art there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 even there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,” even the night shall be light about me.
12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from Thee, but the night shineth as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to Thee.
13 For Thou hast possessed my reins. Thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Thy works, and that my soul knoweth right well.
15 My substance was not hid from Thee when I was made in secret, and intricately wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being imperfect; and in Thy book all my members were written, which in continuity were fashioned, when as yet there were none of them.
17 How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with Thee.
19 Surely, Thou wilt slay the wicked, O God. Depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
20 For they speak against Thee wickedly, and Thine enemies take Thy name in vain.
21 Do I not hate them, O Lord, that hate Thee? And am I not grieved with those that rise up against Thee?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them mine enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts.
24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Psalm 143-145 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
143 Hear my prayer, O Lord, give ear to my supplications; in Thy faithfulness answer me, and in Thy righteousness.
2 And enter not into judgment with Thy servant, for in Thy sight shall no man living be justified.
3 For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground. He hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.
4 Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.
5 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Thy works; I muse on the work of Thy hands.
6 I stretch forth my hands unto Thee; my soul thirsteth after Thee, as a thirsty land. Selah
7 Hear me speedily, O Lord; my spirit faileth. Hide not Thy face from me, lest I be like them that go down into the pit.
8 Cause me to hear Thy lovingkindness in the morning, for in Thee do I trust. Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk, for I lift up my soul unto Thee.
9 Deliver me, O Lord, from mine enemies; I flee unto Thee to hide me.
10 Teach me to do Thy will, for Thou art my God. Thy Spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
11 Quicken me, O Lord, for Thy name’s sake; for Thy righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.
12 And in Thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul; for I am Thy servant.
144 Blessed be the Lord my strength, who teacheth my hands to war and my fingers to fight;
2 my goodness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer, my shield and He in whom I trust, who subdueth my people under me.
3 Lord, what is man that Thou takest notice of him? Or the son of man that Thou makest account of him?
4 Man is like vanity; his days are as a shadow that passeth away.
5 Bow Thy heavens, O Lord, and come down; touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
6 Cast forth lightning and scatter them; shoot out Thine arrows and destroy them.
7 Send Thine hand from above; rescue me and deliver me out of great waters from the hand of strangers,
8 whose mouth speaketh vanity and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
9 I will sing a new song unto Thee, O God; upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto Thee.
10 It is He that giveth salvation unto kings, who delivereth David His servant from the hurtful sword.
11 Rescue me and deliver me from the hand of strangers, whose mouth speaketh vanity and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood,
12 that our sons may be as plants full grown in their youth, that our daughters may be as cornerstones, polished after the similitude of a palace;
13 that our garners may be full, affording all manner of store, that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets;
14 that our oxen may be strong to labor, that there be no breaking in, nor going out, that there be no complaining in our streets.
15 Happy is that people for whom such is the case; yea, happy is that people whose God is the Lord.
145 I will extol Thee, my God, O King; and I will bless Thy name for ever and ever.
2 Every day will I bless Thee, and I will praise Thy name for ever and ever.
3 Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised, and His greatness is unsearchable.
4 One generation shall praise Thy works to another, and shall declare Thy mighty acts.
5 I will speak of the glorious honor of Thy majesty, and of Thy wondrous works.
6 And men shall speak of the might of Thy fearsome acts, and I will declare Thy greatness.
7 They shall abundantly utter the memory of Thy great goodness, and shall sing of Thy righteousness.
8 The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and of great mercy.
9 The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.
10 All Thy works shall praise Thee, O Lord, and Thy saints shall bless Thee.
11 They shall speak of the glory of Thy Kingdom and talk of Thy power,
12 to make known to the sons of men His mighty acts and the glorious majesty of His Kingdom.
13 Thy Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom, and Thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
14 The Lord upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all wait upon Thee, and Thou givest them their meat in due season.
16 Thou openest Thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
17 The Lord is righteous in all His ways, and holy in all His works.
18 The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth.
19 He will fulfill the desire of them that fear Him; He also will hear their cry and will save them.
20 The Lord preserveth all them that love Him, but all the wicked will He destroy.
21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord, and let all flesh bless His holy name for ever and ever.
