Psalm 26 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
26 Judge me, O Lord, for I have walked in mine integrity. I have also trusted in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide.
2 Examine me, O Lord, and test me; try my reins and my heart.
3 For Thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes, and I have walked in Thy truth.
4 I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I consort with dissemblers.
5 I have hated the congregation of evildoers, and will not sit with the wicked.
6 I will wash mine hands in innocence; so will I compass Thine altar, O Lord,
7 that I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Thy wondrous works.
8 Lord, I have loved the habitation of Thy house, and the place where Thine honor dwelleth.
9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men,
10 in whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity; redeem me and be merciful unto me.
12 My foot standeth on a level place; in the congregations will I bless the Lord.
Psalm 40 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
40 I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined unto me and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock and established my goings.
3 And He hath put a new song in my mouth; even praise unto our God; many shall see it and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.
4 Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
5 Many, O Lord my God, are Thy wonderful works which Thou hast done; and Thy thoughts which are directed toward us, they cannot be reckoned up in order unto Thee. If I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
6 Sacrifice and offering Thou didst not desire; mine ears hast Thou opened; burnt offering and sin offering hast Thou not required.
7 Then said I, “Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me:
8 I delight to do Thy will, O my God; yea, Thy law is within my heart.”
9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation; lo, I have not restrained my lips, O Lord, Thou knowest.
10 I have not hid Thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared Thy faithfulness and Thy salvation; I have not concealed Thy lovingkindness and Thy truth from the great congregation.
11 Withhold not Thou Thy tender mercies from me, O Lord; let Thy lovingkindness and Thy truth continually preserve me.
12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about; mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up. They are more than the hairs of mine head; therefore my heart faileth me.
13 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me; O Lord, make haste to help me!
14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
15 Let them be desolate as a reward for their shame, that say unto me, “Aha, aha!”
16 Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee; let those that love Thy salvation say continually, “The Lord be magnified!”
17 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh of me. Thou art my help and my deliverer; do not tarry, O my God!
Psalm 58 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
58 Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? Do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?
2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh out violence by your hands in the earth.
3 The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.
4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent; they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear,
5 which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charm they ever so wisely.
6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth; break out the great teeth of the young lions, O Lord!
7 Let them melt away as waters which run continually; when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
8 As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.
9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, He shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in His wrath.
10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance; he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked,
11 so that a man shall say, “Verily there is a reward for the righteous; verily He is a God that judgeth on the earth.”
Psalm 61-62 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
61 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto Thee when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For Thou hast been a shelter for me and a strong tower from the enemy.
4 I will abide in Thy tabernacle for ever; I will trust in the refuge of Thy wings. Selah
5 For Thou, O God, hast heard my vows; Thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear Thy name.
6 Thou wilt prolong the king’s life, and his years shall be as many generations.
7 He shall abide before God for ever; O prepare mercy and truth, that they may preserve him.
8 So will I sing praise unto Thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
62 Truly my soul waiteth upon God; from Him cometh my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved.
3 How long will ye conjure mischief against a man? Ye shall be slain, all of you; as a bulging wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.
4 They consult only to cast him down from his excellency, they delight in lies, they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah
5 My soul, wait thou only upon God, for my expectation is from Him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength and my refuge is in God.
8 Trust in Him at all times, ye people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah
9 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie; if weighed in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.
10 Trust not in oppression, and put not vain hope in robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
11 God hath spoken this once, twice have I heard this: that power belongeth unto God.
12 Also unto Thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy, for Thou renderest to every man according to his work.
Psalm 64 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
64 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer; preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked, from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity,
3 who whet their tongue like a sword and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words,
4 that they may shoot in secret at the perfect; suddenly do they shoot at him and fear not.
5 They encourage each other in an evil purpose; they commune in laying snares privily; they say, “Who shall see them?”
6 They search out iniquities, they conduct a diligent search; both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
8 So shall they make their own tongue to fall upon themselves; all that see them shall flee away.
9 And all men shall fear and shall declare the work of God, for they shall wisely consider His doing.
10 The righteous shall be glad in the Lord and shall trust in Him, and all the upright in heart shall glory.
