Psalm 7 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
7 O Lord my God, in Thee do I put my trust. Save me from all them that persecute me; and deliver me,
2 lest they tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces while there is none to deliver.
3 O Lord my God, if I have done this, if there be iniquity on my hands,
4 if I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy),
5 let the enemy persecute my soul and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honor in the dust. Selah
6 Arise, O Lord, in Thine anger; lift up Thyself against the rage of mine enemies, and awaken for me the judgment that Thou hast commanded.
7 So shall the congregation of the people compass Thee about; for their sakes, therefore, return Thou on high.
8 The Lord shall judge the people: Judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness and according to mine integrity that is in me.
9 O let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish the just; for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
10 My defense is of God, who saveth the upright in heart.
11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
12 If he turn not, He will whet His sword; He hath bent His bow and made it ready.
13 He hath also prepared for Him the instruments of death; He ordaineth His arrows against the persecutors.
14 Behold, the wicked travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief and brought forth falsehood.
15 He made a pit and dug it, and has fallen into the ditch which he hath made.
16 His mischief shall return upon his own head; and his violent dealings shall come down upon his own pate.
17 I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness, and will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.
Psalm 27 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
27 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war should rise against me, even in this will I be confident.
4 One thing have I desired of the Lord; that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret places of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me upon a rock.
6 And then shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me; therefore I will offer in His tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.
7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice! Have mercy also upon me and answer me.
8 When Thou saidst, “Seek ye My face,” my heart said unto Thee, “Thy face, Lord, will I seek.”
9 Hide not Thy face far from me; put not Thy servant away in anger. Thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
11 Teach me Thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a level path because of mine enemies.
12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies; for false witnesses have risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
13 I would have fainted, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
14 Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord!
Psalm 31 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
31 In Thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed; deliver me in Thy righteousness.
2 Bow down Thine ear to me, deliver me speedily; be Thou my strong rock, a house of defense to save me.
3 For Thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for the sake of Thy name, lead me and guide me.
4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me, for Thou art my strength.
5 Into Thine hand I commit my spirit; Thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.
6 I have hated them that have regard for lying vanities; but I trust in the Lord.
7 I will be glad and rejoice in Thy mercy, for Thou hast considered my trouble. Thou hast known my soul in adversities,
8 And hast not delivered me into the hands of the enemy; Thou hast set my feet in a large room.
9 Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am in trouble; mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.
10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing; my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
11 I am a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbors, and a fear to mine acquaintances; they that see me in the streets flee from me.
12 I am forgotten as a dead man, out of mind; I am like a broken vessel.
13 For I have heard the slander of many; fear was on every side; while they took counsel together against me, they schemed to take away my life.
14 But I have trusted in Thee, O Lord; I said, “Thou art my God.”
15 My times are in Thy hand; deliver me from the hand of mine enemies and from them that persecute me.
16 Make Thy face to shine upon Thy servant; save me for Thy mercies’ sake.
17 Let me not be ashamed, O Lord, for I have called upon Thee; let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.
18 Let the lying lips be put to silence, which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
19 O how great is Thy goodness which Thou hast laid up for them that fear Thee, which Thou hast wrought for them that trust in Thee before the sons of men!
20 Thou shalt hide them in the safety of Thy presence from the pride of man; Thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
21 Blessed be the Lord, for He hath shown me His marvelous kindness in a stronghold city!
22 For I said in my haste, “I am cut off from before Thine eyes!” Nevertheless Thou heard the voice of my supplications when I cried unto Thee.
23 O love the Lord, all ye His saints! For the Lord preserveth the faithful, but plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
24 Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.
Psalm 34 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
34 I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord; the humble shall hear thereof and be glad.
3 O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked unto Him and were lightened, and their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them.
8 O taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man that trusteth in Him!
9 O fear the Lord, ye His saints! For them that fear Him suffer no want.
10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger, but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
14 Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears are open unto their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart, and saveth such as are of a contrite spirit.
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
20 He keepeth all his bones; not one of them is broken.
21 Evil shall slay the wicked, and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of His servants, and none of them that trust in Him shall be desolate.
Psalm 52 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
52 Why boastest thou in thine own mischief, O mighty man? The goodness of God endureth continually.
2 Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
3 Thou lovest evil more than good, and lying rather than speaking righteousness. Selah
4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.
5 God shall likewise destroy thee for ever; He shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah
6 The righteous also shall see this and fear, and shall laugh at him:
7 “Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength, but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his own wickedness.”
8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
9 I will praise Thee for ever, because Thou hast done it, and I will wait on Thy name, for it is good before Thy saints.
