Psalm 5 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
5 Give ear to my words, O Lord; consider my meditation.
2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for unto Thee will I pray.
3 My voice shalt Thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto Thee and will look up.
4 For Thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness; neither shall evil dwell with Thee.
5 The foolish shall not stand in Thy sight; Thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak lies; the Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
7 But as for me, I will come into Thy house in the multitude of Thy mercy, and in Thy fear will I worship toward Thy holy temple.
8 Lead me, O Lord, in Thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make Thy way straight before my face.
9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is exceeding wickedness. Their throat is an open sepulcher; they flatter with their tongue.
10 Destroy Thou them, O God! Let them fall by their own counsels. Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions, for they have rebelled against Thee.
11 But let all those that put their trust in Thee rejoice; let them ever shout for joy, because Thou defendest them; let them also that love Thy name be joyful in Thee.
12 For Thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favor wilt Thou compass him about as with a shield.
Psalm 38 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
38 O Lord, rebuke me not in Thy wrath, neither chasten me in Thy hot displeasure!
2 For Thine arrows stick fast in me, and Thy hand presseth me sorely.
3 There is no soundness in my flesh, because of Thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones, because of my sin.
4 For mine iniquities have gone over mine head; as a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me.
5 My wounds are foul and corrupt because of my foolishness.
6 I am troubled, I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.
7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease, and there is no soundness in my flesh.
8 I am feeble and sorely broken; I have groaned because of the disquiet of my heart.
9 Lord, all my desires are known to Thee; and my groaning is not hidden from Thee.
10 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me; as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
11 My loved ones and my friends stand aloof from my sore, and my kinsmen stand afar off.
12 They also that seek after my life lay snares for me; and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and devise deceits all the day long.
13 But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.
14 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.
15 For in Thee, O Lord, do I hope; Thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
16 For I said, “Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me; when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.”
17 For I am ready for halting, and my sorrow is continually before me.
18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
19 But mine enemies are alive and they are strong; and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries, because I follow the thing that is good.
21 Forsake me not, O Lord; O my God, be not far from me!
22 Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation!
Psalm 41-42 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
41 Blessed is he that considereth the poor; the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
2 The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive, and he shallbe blessed upon the earth; and Thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.
3 The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing; Thou wilt turn him on his bed in his sickness.
4 I said, “Lord, be merciful unto me; heal my soul, for I have sinned against Thee.”
5 Mine enemies speak evil of me and say, “When shall he die and his name perish?”
6 And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity; his heart gathereth iniquity to itself, and when he goeth out, he telleth it.
7 All that hate me whisper together against me; against me do they devise my hurt.
8 “An evil disease,” they say, “cleaveth fast unto him, and now that he lieth down, he shall rise up no more.”
9 Yea, mine own familiar friend in whom I trusted, that ate of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
10 But Thou, O Lord, be merciful unto me, and raise me up that I may requite them.
11 By this I know that Thou favorest me: because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.
12 And as for me, Thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before Thy face for ever.
13 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting! Amen and Amen.
42 As the hart panteth for the water brooks, so panteth my soul for Thee, O God.
2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God; when shall I come and appear before God?
3 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, “Where is thy God?”
4 When I remember these things, I pour out my soul within me, for I had gone with the multitude; I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.
5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted within me? Hope thou in God, for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.
6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me; therefore will I remember Thee from the land of Jordan and of the Hermonites, from the hill of Mizar.
7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of Thy waterspouts; all Thy waves and Thy billows have gone over me.
8 Yet the Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me and my prayer unto the God of my life.
9 I will say unto God my rock, “Why hast Thou forgotten me? Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?”
10 As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me, while they say daily unto me, “Where is thy God?”
11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted within me? Hope thou in God, for I shall yet praise Him, who is the health of my countenance and my God.
