Psalm 32-45 New International Version (NIV)
Of David. A maskil.[a]
1 Blessed is the one
3 When I kept silent,
5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you
6 Therefore let all the faithful pray to you
8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
11 Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous;
1 Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous;
4 For the word of the Lord is right and true;
6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
10 The Lord foils the plans of the nations;
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
16 No king is saved by the size of his army;
20 We wait in hope for the Lord;
Of David. When he pretended to be insane before Abimelek, who drove him away, and he left.
1 I will extol the Lord at all times;
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;
15 The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
19 The righteous person may have many troubles,
21 Evil will slay the wicked;
1 Contend, Lord, with those who contend with me;
4 May those who seek my life
7 Since they hid their net for me without cause
11 Ruthless witnesses come forward;
17 How long, Lord, will you look on?
22 Lord, you have seen this; do not be silent.
26 May all who gloat over my distress
28 My tongue will proclaim your righteousness,
For the director of music. Of David the servant of the Lord.
1 I have a message from God in my heart
2 In their own eyes they flatter themselves
5 Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
10 Continue your love to those who know you,
1 Do not fret because of those who are evil
3 Trust in the Lord and do good;
5 Commit your way to the Lord;
7 Be still before the Lord
8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
10 A little while, and the wicked will be no more;
12 The wicked plot against the righteous
14 The wicked draw the sword
16 Better the little that the righteous have
18 The blameless spend their days under the Lord’s care,
20 But the wicked will perish:
21 The wicked borrow and do not repay,
23 The Lord makes firm the steps
25 I was young and now I am old,
27 Turn from evil and do good;
Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed[l];
30 The mouths of the righteous utter wisdom,
32 The wicked lie in wait for the righteous,
34 Hope in the Lord
35 I have seen a wicked and ruthless man
39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;
A psalm of David. A petition.
1 Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger
5 My wounds fester and are loathsome
9 All my longings lie open before you, Lord;
13 I am like the deaf, who cannot hear,
17 For I am about to fall,
21 Lord, do not forsake me;
For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.
1 I said, “I will watch my ways
4 “Show me, Lord, my life’s end
6 “Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom;
7 “But now, Lord, what do I look for?
12 “Hear my prayer, Lord,
For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.
1 I waited patiently for the Lord;
4 Blessed is the one
6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire—
9 I proclaim your saving acts in the great assembly;
11 Do not withhold your mercy from me, Lord;
14 May all who want to take my life
17 But as for me, I am poor and needy;
For the director of music. A psalm of David.
1 Blessed are those who have regard for the weak;
4 I said, “Have mercy on me, Lord;
7 All my enemies whisper together against me;
10 But may you have mercy on me, Lord;
13 Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel,
For the director of music. A maskil[ab] of the Sons of Korah.
1 As the deer pants for streams of water,
5 Why, my soul, are you downcast?
6 My soul is downcast within me;
8 By day the Lord directs his love,
9 I say to God my Rock,
11 Why, my soul, are you downcast?
1 Vindicate me, my God,
5 Why, my soul, are you downcast?
For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A maskil.[af]
1 We have heard it with our ears, O God;
4 You are my King and my God,
9 But now you have rejected and humbled us;
13 You have made us a reproach to our neighbors,
17 All this came upon us,
20 If we had forgotten the name of our God
23 Awake, Lord! Why do you sleep?
25 We are brought down to the dust;
For the director of music. To the tune of “Lilies.” Of the Sons of Korah. A maskil.[aj] A wedding song.
1 My heart is stirred by a noble theme
2 You are the most excellent of men
3 Gird your sword on your side, you mighty one;
