PSALMS: 30, 60, 90, 120, 150





1 I will extol you, LORD, for you have raised me up,

And have not made my foes to rejoice over me. 

2 LORD my God, I cried to you, and you have healed me. 

3 LORD, you have brought up my soul from She’ol.

You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. 

4 Sing praise to the LORD, you holy ones of his.

Give thanks to his holy name. 

5 For his anger is but for a moment;

His favor is for a lifetime.

Weeping may stay for the night,

But joy comes in the morning. 

6 As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.” 

7 You, LORD, when you favored me, made my mountain to stand strong.

But when you hid your face, I was troubled. 

8 I cried to you, LORD.

To the LORD I made supplication: 

9 “What profit is there in my destruction, if I go down to the pit?

Shall the dust praise you?

Shall it declare your truth? 

10 Hear, LORD, and have mercy on me. LORD, be my helper.” 

11 You have turned my mourning into dancing for me.

You have removed my sackcloth, and clothed me with gladness, 

12 To the end that my heart may sing praise to you, and not be silent.

LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever.


1 God, you have rejected us.

You have broken us down.

You have been angry.

Restore us to you, again. 

2 You have made the land tremble.

You have torn it.

Mend its fractures,

For it quakes. 

3 You have shown your people hard things.

You have made us drink the wine that makes us stagger. 

4 You have given a banner to those who fear you,

That it may be displayed because of the truth.


5 So that your beloved may be delivered,

Save with your right hand, and answer us. 

6 God has spoken from his sanctuary:

“I will triumph.

I will divide Shekhem,

And measure out the valley of Sukkot.

7 Gil`ad is mine, and Menashsheh is mine.

Efrayim also is the defense of my head.

Yehudah is my scepter. 

8 Mo’av is my wash basin.

I will throw my shoe on Edom.

I shout in triumph over Peleshet.” 

9 Who will bring me into the strong city?

Who has led me to Edom? 

10 Haven’t you, God, rejected us?

You don’t go out with our armies, God. 

11 Give us help against the adversary,

For the help of man is vain. 

12 Through God we shall do valiantly,

For it is he who will tread down our adversaries.


1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place In all generations. 

2 Before the mountains were brought forth,

Or ever you had formed the eretz and the world,

Even from everlasting to everlasting, you are God. 

3 You turn man to destruction, saying,

“Return, you children of men.” 

4 For a thousand years in your sight

Are but as yesterday when it is past,

As a watch in the night. 

5 You sweep them away as they sleep.

In the morning they sprout like new grass. 

6 In the morning it sprouts and springs up.

By evening, it is withered and dry.

7 For we are consumed in your anger.

We are troubled in your wrath. 

8 You have set our iniquities before you,

Our secret sins in the light of your presence. 

9 For all our days have passed away in your wrath.

We bring our years to an end as a sigh. 

10 The days of our years are seventy,

Or even by reason of strength eighty years;

Yet their pride is but labor and sorrow,

For it passes quickly, and we fly away. 

11 Who knows the power of your anger,

Your wrath according to the fear that is due to you? 

12 So teach us to number our days,

That we may gain a heart of wisdom. 

13 Relent, LORD! How long?

Have compassion on your servants. 

14 Satisfy us in the morning with your loving kindness,

That we may rejoice and be glad all our days. 

15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,

For as many years as we have seen evil. 

16 Let your work appear to your servants;

Your glory to their children. 

17 Let the favor of the Lord our God be on us;

Establish the work of our hands for us;

Yes, establish the work of our hands.


1 The LORD says to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand,

Until I make your enemies your footstool for your feet.” 

2 The LORD will send forth the rod of your strength out of Tziyon.

Rule in the midst of your enemies. 

3 Your people offer themselves willingly in the day of your power,

In holy array.

Out of the womb of the morning,

you have the dew of your youth. 

4 The LORD has sworn, and will not change his mind:

“You are a Kohen forever in the order of Malki-Tzedek.” 

5 The Lord is at your right hand.

He will crush kings in the day of his wrath.

6 He will judge among the nations.

He will heap up dead bodies.

He will crush the ruler of the whole eretz. 

7 He will drink of the brook in the way;

Therefore will he lift up his head.


1 Deliver me, LORD, from the evil man.

Preserve me from the violent man; 

2 Those who devise mischief in their hearts.

They continually gather themselves together for war. 

3 They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent.

Viper’s poison is under their lips. Selah. 

4 LORD, keep me from the hands of the wicked.

Preserve me from the violent men:

Who have determined to trip my feet. 

5 The proud have hidden a snare for me,

They have spread the cords of a net by the path.

They have set traps for me. Selah. 

6 I said to the LORD, “You are my God.”

Listen to the cry of my petitions, LORD. 

7 LORD, the Lord, the strength of my yeshu`ah,

You have covered my head in the day of battle. 

8 LORD, don’t grant the desires of the wicked.

Don’t let their evil plans succeed,

or they will become proud.


9 As for the head of those who surround me,

Let the mischief of their own lips cover them. 

10 Let burning coals fall on them.

Let them be thrown into the fire,

Into miry pits, from where they never rise. 

11 An evil speaker won’t be established in the eretz.

Evil will hunt the violent man to overthrow him. 

12 I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted,

And justice for the needy. 

13 Surely the righteous will give thanks to your name.

The upright will dwell in your presence.


1 The words of Agur the son of Yakeh, the oracle:

The man says to ‘Iti’el, To ‘Iti’el and Ucal: 

2 “Surely I am the most ignorant man,

And don’t have a man’s understanding. 

3 I have not learned wisdom,

Neither do I have the knowledge of the Holy One. 

4 Who has ascended up into heaven, and descended?

Who has gathered the wind in his fists?

Who has bound the waters in his garment?

Who has established all the ends of the eretz? ‘

What is his name, and what is his son’s name, if you know? 

5 “Every word of God is flawless.

He is a shield to those who take refuge in him. 

6 Don’t you add to his words,

Lest he reprove you, and you be found a liar. 

7 “Two things I have asked of you;

Don’t deny me before I die: 

8 Remove far from me falsehood and lies.

Give me neither poverty nor riches.

Feed me with the food that is needful for me; 

9 Lest I be full, deny you, and say,

‘Who is the LORD?’

Or lest I be poor, and steal,

And so dishonor the name of my God. 

10 “Don’t slander a servant to his master,

Lest he curse you, and you be held guilty. 

11 There is a generation that curses their father,

And doesn’t bless their mother. 

12 There is a generation that is pure in their own eyes,

Yet are not washed from their filthiness. 

13 There is a generation, oh how lofty are their eyes!

Their eyelids are lifted up. 

14 There is a generation whose teeth are like swords,

And their jaws like knives,

To devour the poor from the eretz,

and the needy from among men. 

15 “The leach has two daughters:

‘Give, give.’

“There are three things that are never satisfied;

Four that don’t say, ‘Enough:’ 

16 She’ol, the barren womb;

The eretz that is not satisfied with water;

The fire that doesn’t say, ‘Enough;’ 

17 And the eye that mocks at his father,

And scorns obedience to his mother:

The ravens of the valley shall pick it out,

The young eagles shall eat it. 

18 “There are three things which are too amazing for me,

Four which I don’t understand: 

19 The way of an eagle in the air;

The way of a serpent on a rock;

The way of a ship in the midst of the sea;

And the way of a man with a maiden. 

20 So is the way of an adulterous woman:

She eats and wipes her mouth,

And says, ‘I have done nothing wrong.’ 

21 “For three things the eretz tremble,

And under four, it can’t bear up: 

22 For a servant when he is king;

A fool when he is filled with food; 

23 For an unloved woman when she is married;

And a handmaid who is heir to her mistress.

24 “There are four things which are little on the eretz,

But they are exceeding wise: 

25 The ants are not a strong people,

Yet they provide their food in the summer; 

26 The conies are but a feeble folk,

Yet make they their houses in the rocks; 

27 The locusts have no king,

Yet they advance in ranks; 

28 You can catch a lizard with your hands,

Yet she is in kings’ palaces. 

29 “There are three things which are stately in their march,

Four which are stately in going: 

30 The lion, which is mightiest among animals,

And doesn’t turn away for any; 

31 The greyhound, the male goat also;

And the king against whom there is no rising up. 

32 “If you have done foolishly in lifting up yourself,

Or if you have thought evil,

Put your hand over your mouth. 

33 For as the churning of milk brings forth butter,

And the wringing of the nose brings forth blood;

So the forcing of wrath brings forth strife.”


30:12 Why thus says the Holy One of Yisra’el, Because you despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and rely thereon; 13 therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly in an instant. 14 He shall break it as a potter’s vessel is broken, breaking it in pieces without sparing; so that there shall not be found among the pieces of it a broken piece with which to take fire from the hearth, or to dip up water out of the cistern. 15 For thus said the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Yisra’el, In returning and rest shall you be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength. You would not: 16 but you said, No, for we will flee on horses; therefore shall you flee: and, We will ride on the swift; therefore shall those who pursue you be swift. 17 One thousand [shall flee] at the threat of one; at the threat of five shall you flee: until you be left as a beacon on the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on a hill. 18 Therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious to you; and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy on you: for the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him. 19 For the people shall dwell in Tziyon at Yerushalayim; you shall weep no more; he will surely be gracious to you at the voice of your cry; when he shall hear, he will answer you. 20 Though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet shall not your teachers be hidden anymore, but your eyes shall see your teachers; 21 and your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you in it; when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left. 22 You shall defile the overlaying of your engraved images of silver, and the plating of your molten images of gold: you shall cast them away as an unclean thing; you shall tell it, Get you hence. 23 He will give the rain for your seed, with which you shall sow the ground; and bread of the increase of the ground, and it shall be fat and plenteous. In that day shall your cattle feed in large pastures; 24 the oxen likewise and the young donkeys that till the ground shall eat savory provender, which has been winnowed with the shovel and with the fork. 25 There shall be on every lofty mountain, and on every high hill, brooks [and] streams of waters, in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. 26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD binds up the hurt of his people, and heals the stroke of their wound. 27 Behold, the name of the LORD comes from far, burning with his anger, and in thick rising smoke: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue is as a devouring fire; 28 and his breath is as an overflowing stream, that reaches even to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of destruction: and a bridle that causes to err [shall be] in the jaws of the peoples. 29 You shall have a song as in the night when a holy feast is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goes with a pipe to come to the mountain of the LORD, to the Rock of Yisra’el. 30 The LORD will cause his glorious voice to be heard, and will show the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of [his] anger, and the flame of a devouring fire, with a blast, and tempest, and hailstones. 31 For through the voice of the LORD shall the Ashshur be dismayed; with his rod will he strike [him]. 32 Every stroke of the appointed staff, which the LORD shall lay on him, shall be with [the sound of] timbrels and harps; and in battles with the brandishing [of his arm] will he fight with them. 33 For a Tofet is prepared of old; yes, for the king it is made ready; he has made it deep and large; the pile of it is fire and much wood; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of sulfur, does kindle it.

31:1 Woe to those who go down to Mitzrayim for help, and rely on horses, and trust in chariots because they are many, and in horsemen because they are very strong, but they don’t look to the Holy One of Yisra’el, neither seek the LORD! 2 Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words, but will arise against the house of the evil-doers, and against the help of those who work iniquity. 3 Now the Mitzrim are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit: and when the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both he who helps shall stumble, and he who is helped shall fall, and they all shall be consumed together. 4 For thus says the LORD to me, As the lion and the young lion growling over his prey, if a multitude of shepherds are called forth against him, will not be dismayed at their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so will the LORD of Hosts come down to fight on Mount Tziyon, and on the hill of it. 5 As birds hovering, so will the LORD of Hosts protect Yerushalayim; he will protect and deliver [it], he will pass over and preserve [it]. 6 Turn you to him from whom you have deeply revolted, children of Yisra’el. 7 For in that day they shall cast away every man his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made to you for a sin. 8 The Ashshur shall fall by the sword, not of man; and the sword, not of men, shall devour him; and he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall become subject to forced labor. 9 His rock shall pass away by reason of terror, and his princes shall be dismayed at the ensign, says the LORD, whose fire is in Tziyon, and his furnace in Yerushalayim.

32:1 Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in justice. 2 A man shall be as a hiding-place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest, as streams of water in a dry place, as the shade of a great rock in a weary land. 3 The eyes of those who see shall not be dim, and the ears of those who hear shall listen. 4 The heart of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly. 5 The fool shall be no more called noble, nor the scoundrel be highly respected. 6 For the fool will speak folly, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice profanity, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and to cause the drink of the thirsty to fail. 7 The instruments of the churl are evil: he devises wicked devices to destroy the humble with lying words, even when the needy speaks right. 8 But the noble devises noble things; and in noble things shall he continue. 9 Rise up, you women who are at ease, [and] hear my voice; you careless daughters, give ear to my speech. 10 For days beyond a year shall you be troubled, you careless women; for the vintage shall fail, the harvest shall not come. 11 Tremble, you women who are at ease; be troubled, you careless ones; strip yourselves, and make yourselves naked, and gird [sackcloth] on your loins. 12 They shall strike on the breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine. 13 On the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers; yes, on all the houses of joy in the joyous city. 14 For the palace shall be forsaken; the populous city shall be deserted; the hill and the watch-tower shall be for dens forever, a joy of wild donkeys, a pasture of flocks; 15 until the Spirit be poured on us from on high, and the wilderness become a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be esteemed as a forest. 16 Then justice shall dwell in the wilderness; and righteousness shall abide in the fruitful field. 17 The work of righteousness shall be shalom; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever. 18 My people shall abide in a peaceable habitation, and in safe dwellings, and in quiet resting-places. 19 But it shall hail in the downfall of the forest; and the city shall be utterly laid low. 20 Blessed are you who sow beside all waters, who send forth the feet of the ox and the donkey.

33:1 Woe to you who destroy, and you weren’t destroyed; and deal treacherously, and they didn’t deal treacherously with you! When you have ceased to destroy, you shall be destroyed; and when you have made an end of dealing treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with you. 2 LORD, be gracious to us; we have waited for you: be our arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble. 3 At the noise of the thunder the peoples are fled; at the lifting up of yourself the nations are scattered. 4 Your spoil shall be gathered as the caterpillar gathers: as locusts leap shall men leap on it. 5 The LORD is exalted; for he dwells on high: he has filled Tziyon with justice and righteousness. 6 There shall be stability in your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge: the fear of the LORD is your treasure. 7 Behold, their valiant ones cry outside; the ambassadors of shalom weep bitterly. 8 The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceases: [the enemy] has broken the covenant, he has despised the cities, he doesn’t regard man. 9 The land mourns and languishes; Levanon is confounded and withers away; Sharon is like a desert; and Bashan and Karmel shake off [their leaves].


5:1 Stand firm therefore in the liberty by which Messiah has made us free, and don’t be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. 

2 Behold, I, Sha’ul, tell you that if you receive circumcision, Messiah will profit you nothing. 

3 Yes, I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 

4 You are alienated from Messiah, you who desire to be justified by the law. You have fallen away from grace. 

5 For we, through the Spirit, by faith wait for the hope of righteousness. 

6 For in Messiah Yeshua neither circumcision amounts to anything, nor uncircumcision, but faith working through love. 

7 You were running well! Who interfered with you that you should not obey the truth? 

8 This persuasion is not from him who calls you. 

9 A little yeast grows through the whole lump. 

10 I have confidence toward you in the Lord that you will think no other way. But he who troubles you will bear his judgment, whoever he is. 

11 But I, brothers, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? Then the stumbling-block of the cross has been removed. 

12 I wish that those who disturb you would cut themselves off.

New Testament: Galatians 3:23 – 4:31


1 Ascribe to the LORD, you sons of the mighty,

Ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. 

2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due to his name.

Worship the LORD in holy array. 

3 The voice of LORD is on the waters.

The God of glory thunders, even the LORD on many waters. 

4 The voice of the LORD is powerful.

The voice of the LORD is full of majesty. 

5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars.

Yes, the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Levanon. 

6 He makes them also to skip like a calf;

Levanon and Siryon like a young wild ox. 

7 The voice of the LORD strikes with flashes of lightning.

8 The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness.

The LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. 

9 The voice of the LORD makes the deer calve,

And strips the forests bare.

In his temple everything says, “Glory!” 

10 The LORD sat enthroned at the Flood.

Yes, the LORD sits as King forever. 

11 The LORD will give strength to his people.

The LORD will bless his people with shalom.


1 Deliver me from my enemies, my God.

Set me on high from those who rise up against me. 

2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity.

Save me from the bloodthirsty men. 

3 For, behold, they lie in wait for my soul.

The mighty gather themselves together against me,

Not for my disobedience, nor for my sin, LORD. 

4 I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me.

Rise up, behold, and help me! 

5 You, LORD God Tzva’ot, the God of Yisra’el,

Rouse yourself to punish the nations.

Show no mercy to the wicked traitors. Selah.

6 They return at evening, howling like dogs,

And prowl around the city. 

7 Behold, they spew with their mouth.

Swords are in their lips,

“For,” they say, “who hears us?” 

8 But you, LORD, laugh at them.

You scoff at all the nations. 

9 Oh, my Strength, I watch for you,

For God is my high tower. 

10 My God will go before me with his loving kindness.

God will let me look at my enemies in triumph. 

11 Don’t kill them, or my people may forget.

Scatter them by your power, and bring them down,

Lord our shield. 

12 For the sin of their mouth, and the words of their lips,

Let them be caught in their pride,

For the curses and lies which they utter. 

13 Consume them in wrath.

Consume them, and they will be no more.

Let them know that God rules in Ya`akov,

To the ends of the eretz.


14 At evening let them return.

Let them howl like a dog, and go around the city. 

15 They shall wander up and down for food,

And wait all night if they aren’t satisfied. 

16 But I will sing of your strength.

Yes, I will sing aloud of your loving kindness in the morning.

For you have been my high tower,

A refuge in the day of my distress. 

17  To you, my strength, I will sing praises.

For God is my high tower, the God of my mercy.


1 I will sing of the loving kindness of the LORD forever.

With my mouth, I will make known your faithfulness to all generations. 

2 I indeed declare, “Love stands firm forever.

You established the heavens.

Your faithfulness is in them.” 

3 “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,

I have sworn to David, my servant, 

4 ‘I will establish your seed forever,

And build up your throne to all generations.'”


5 The heavens will praise your wonders, LORD;

Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones. 

6 For who in the skies can be compared to the LORD?

Who among the sons of the heavenly beings is like the LORD, 

7 A very awesome God in the council of the holy ones,

To be feared above all those who are around him? 

8 LORD, God Tzva’ot, who is a mighty one, like you?

The LORD, your faithfulness is around you. 

9 You rule the pride of the sea.

When its waves rise up, you calm them. 

10 You have broken Rachav in pieces, like one of the slain.

You have scattered your enemies with your mighty arm. 

11 The heavens are yours, the eretz also is yours;

The world and its fullness.

You have founded them. 

12 The north and the south, you have created them.

Tavor and Hermon rejoice in your name. 

13 You have a mighty arm.

Your hand is strong, and your right hand is exalted. 

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne.

Loving kindness and truth go before your face. 

15 Blessed are the people who learn to acclaim you.

They walk in the light of your presence, LORD. 

16 In your name do they rejoice all day.

In your righteousness, they are exalted. 

17 For you are the glory of their strength.

In your favor, our horn will be exalted. 

18 For our shield belongs to the LORD;

Our king to the Holy One of Yisra’el. 

19 Then you spoke in vision to your holy ones,

And said, “I have bestowed strength on the warrior.

I have exalted a young man from the people.

20 I have found David, my servant.

I have anointed him with my holy oil, 

21 With whom my hand shall be established.

My arm will also strengthen him. 

22 No enemy will tax him.

No wicked man will oppress him. 

23 I will beat down his adversaries before him,

And strike those who hate him. 

24 But my faithfulness and my loving kindness will be with him.

In my name, his horn will be exalted.

25 I will set his hand also on the sea,

And his right hand on the rivers. 

26 He will call to me, ‘You are my Father,

My God, and the rock of my salvation!’ 

27 I will also appoint him my firstborn,

The highest of the kings of the eretz. 

28 I will keep my loving kindness for him forevermore.

My covenant will stand firm with him. 

29 I will also make his seed endure forever,

And his throne as the days of heaven.

30 If his children forsake my law,

And don’t walk in my ordinances;

31 If they break my statutes,

And don’t keep my mitzvot; 

32 Then I will punish their sin with the rod,

And their iniquity with stripes. 

33 But I will not completely take my loving kindness from him,

Nor allow my faithfulness to fail. 

34 I will not break my covenant,

Nor alter what my lips have uttered. 

35 Once have I sworn by my holiness,

I will not lie to David. 

36 His seed will endure forever,

His throne like the sun before me. 

37 It will be established forever like the moon,

The faithful witness in the sky.”


38 But you have rejected and spurned.

You have been angry with your anointed. 

39 You have renounced the covenant of your servant.

You have defiled his crown in the dust. 

40 You have broken down all his hedges.

You have brought his strongholds to ruin. 

41 All who pass by the way rob him.

He has become a reproach to his neighbors. 

42 You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries.

You have made all of his enemies rejoice. 

43 Yes, you turn back the edge of his sword,

And haven’t supported him in battle. 

44 You have ended his splendor,

And thrown his throne down to the ground. 

45 You have shortened the days of his youth.

You have covered him with shame.


46How long, LORD?

Will you hide yourself forever?

Will your wrath burn like fire? 

47 Remember how short my time is!

For what vanity have you created all the children of men! 

48 What man is he who shall live and not see death,

Who shall deliver his soul from the power of She’ol?


49 Lord, where are your former loving kindnesses,

Which you swore to David in your faithfulness? 

50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of your servants,

How I bear in my heart the taunts of all the mighty peoples, 

51 With which your enemies have mocked, LORD,

With which they have mocked the footsteps of your anointed one. 

52 Blessed be the LORD forevermore.

Amein, and Amein.


1 Blessed are those whose ways are blameless,

Who walk according to the law of the LORD. 

2 Blessed are those who keep his statutes,

Who seek him with their whole heart. 

3 Yes, they do nothing wrong.

They walk in his ways. 

4 You have commanded your precepts,

That we should fully obey them. 

5 Oh that my ways were steadfast

To obey your statutes! 

6 Then I wouldn’t be put to shame,

When I consider all of your mitzvot. 

7  I will give thanks to you with uprightness of heart,

When I learn your righteous judgments. 

8 I will observe your statutes.

Don’t utterly forsake me. 

9 How can a young man keep his way pure?

By living according to your word. 

10 With my whole heart, I have sought you.

Don’t let me wander from your mitzvot. 

11 I have hidden your word in my heart,

That I might not sin against you. 

12 Blessed are you, LORD.

Teach me your statutes.

13 With my lips, I have declared all the ordinances of your mouth.

14 I have rejoiced in the way of your testimonies,

As much as in all riches. 

15 I will meditate on your precepts,

And consider your ways.

16 I will delight myself in your statutes.

I will not forget your word.

17 Do good to your servant.

I will live and I will obey your word.

18 Open my eyes,

That I may see wondrous things out of your law.

19 I am a stranger on the eretz.

Don’t hide your mitzvot from me.

20 My soul is consumed with longing for your ordinances at all times. 

21 You have rebuked the proud who are cursed,

Who wander from your mitzvot. 

22 Take reproach and contempt away from me,

For I have kept your statutes. 

23 Though princes sit and slander me,

Your servant will meditate on your statutes. 

24 Indeed your statutes are my delight,

And my counselors. 

25 My soul is laid low in the dust.

Revive me according to your word! 

26 I declared my ways, and you answered me.

Teach me your statutes. 

27  Let me understand the teaching of your precepts!

Then I will meditate on your wondrous works. 

28 My soul is weary with sorrow.

Strengthen me according to your word. 

29 Keep me from the way of deceit.

Grant me your law graciously! 

30 I have chosen the way of truth.

I have set my heart on your law. 

31 I cling to your statutes, LORD.

Don’t let me be put to shame. 

32 I run in the path of your mitzvot,

For you have set my heart free. 

33 Teach me, LORD, the way of your statutes.

I will keep them to the end. 

34 Give me understanding, and I will keep your law.

Yes, I will obey it with my whole heart. 

35 Direct me in the path of your mitzvot,

For I delight in them. 

36 Turn my heart toward your statutes,

Not toward selfish gain. 

37 Turn my eyes away from looking at worthless things.

Revive me in your ways. 

38 Fulfill your promise to your servant,

That you may be feared. 

39 Take away my disgrace that I dread,

For your ordinances are good.

40 Behold, I long for your precepts!

Revive me in your righteousness. 

41 Let your loving kindness also come to me, LORD,

Your yeshu`ah, according to your word. 

42 So I will have an answer for him who reproaches me,

For I trust in your word. 

43 Don’t snatch the word of truth out of my mouth,

For I put my hope in your ordinances. 

44 So I will obey your law continually,

Forever and ever.

45 I will walk in liberty,

For I have sought your precepts. 

46 I will also speak of your statutes before kings,

And will not be put to shame.

47 I will delight myself in your mitzvot,

Because I love them. 

48 I reach out my hands for your mitzvot, which I love.

I will meditate on your statutes. 

49 Remember your word to your servant,

Because you gave me hope. 

50 This is my comfort in my affliction,

For your word has revived me. 

51 The arrogant mock me excessively,

But I don’t swerve from your law. 

52 I remember your ordinances of old, LORD,

And have comforted myself. 

53 Indignation has taken hold on me,

Because of the wicked who forsake your law. 

54 Your statutes have been my songs,

In the house where I live. 

55 I have remembered your name, LORD, in the night,

And I obey your law.

56 This is my way,

That I keep your precepts. 

57 The LORD is my portion.

I promised to obey your words. 

58 I sought your favor with my whole heart.

Be merciful to me according to your word. 

59 I considered my ways,

And turned my steps to your statutes. 

60 I will hurry, and not delay,

To obey your mitzvot. 

61 The ropes of the wicked bind me,

But I won’t forget your law. 

62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks to you,

Because of your righteous ordinances. 

63 I am a friend of all those who fear you,

Of those who observe your precepts. 

64 The eretz is full of your loving kindness, LORD.

Teach me your statutes. 

65 Do good to your servant,

According to your word, LORD. 

66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge,

For I believe in your mitzvot. 

67 Before I was afflicted, I went astray;

But now I observe your word. 

68 You are good, and do good.

Teach me your statutes. 

69 The proud have smeared a lie upon me.

With my whole heart,

I will keep your precepts. 

70 Their heart is as callous as the fat,

But I delight in your law. 

71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted,

That I may learn your statutes. 

72 The law of your mouth is better to me

than thousands of pieces of gold and silver.

73 Your hands have made me and formed me.

Give me understanding, that I may learn your mitzvot. 

74 Those who fear you will see me and be glad,

Because I have put my hope in your word.

75 LORD, I know that your judgments are righteous,

That in faithfulness you have afflicted me. 

76 Please let your loving kindness be for my comfort,

According to your word to your servant. 

77 Let your tender mercies come to me, that I may live;

For your law is my delight. 

78 Let the proud be put to shame,

for they have overthrown me wrongfully.

I will meditate on your precepts. 

79 Let those who fear you turn to me.

They will know your statutes. 

80 Let my heart be blameless toward your decrees,

That I may not be put to shame.

81 My soul faints for your salvation.

I hope in your word. 

82 My eyes fail for your word.

I say, “When will you comfort me?” 

83 For I have become like a wineskin in the smoke.

I don’t forget your statutes.

84 How many are the days of your servant?

When will you execute judgment on those who persecute me? 

85 The proud have dug pits for me,

Contrary to your law. 

86 All of your mitzvot are faithful.

They persecute me wrongfully.

Help me! 

87 They had almost wiped me from the eretz,

But I didn’t forsake your precepts. 

88 Preserve my life according to your loving kindness,

So I will obey the statutes of your mouth. 

89 LORD, your word is settled in heaven forever. 

90 Your faithfulness is to all generations.

You have established the eretz, and it remains. 

91 Your laws remain to this day,

For all things serve you. 

92 Unless your law had been my delight,

I would have perished in my affliction. 

93 I will never forget your precepts,

For with them, you have revived me. 

94 I am yours. Save me,

For I have sought your precepts. 

95 The wicked have waited for me, to destroy me.

I will consider your statutes. 

96 I have seen a limit to all perfection,

But your commands are boundless. 

97 How love I your law!

It is my meditation all day. 

98 Your mitzvot make me wiser than my enemies,

For your mitzvot are always with me. 

99 I have more understanding than all my teachers,

For your testimonies are my meditation. 

100 I understand more than the aged,

Because I have kept your precepts. 

101 I have kept my feet from every evil way,

That I might observe your word. 

102 I have not turned aside from your ordinances,

For you have taught me. 

103 How sweet are your promises to my taste,

More than honey to my mouth! 

104 Through your precepts,

I get understanding;

Therefore I hate every false way.

105 Your word is a lamp to my feet,

And a light for my path. 

106 I have sworn, and have confirmed it,

That I will obey your righteous ordinances. 

107 I am afflicted very much.

Revive me, LORD, according to your word. 

108 Accept, I beg you, the willing offerings of my mouth.

LORD, teach me your ordinances. 

109 My soul is continually in my hand,

Yet I won’t forget your law. 

110 The wicked have laid a snare for me,

Yet I haven’t gone astray from your precepts.

111 I have taken your testimonies as a heritage forever,

For they are the joy of my heart. 

112 I have set my heart to perform your statutes forever,

Even to the end. 

113 I hate double-minded men,

But I love your law. 

114 You are my hiding place and my shield.

I hope in your word. 

115 Depart from me, you evildoers,

That I may keep the mitzvot of my God. 

116 Uphold me according to your word, that I may live.

Let me not be ashamed of my hope. 

117 Hold me up, and I will be safe,

And will have respect for your statutes continually. 

118 You reject all those who stray from your statutes,

For their deceit is in vain. 

119 You put away all the wicked of the eretz like dross.

Therefore I love your testimonies. 

120 My flesh trembles for fear of you.

I am afraid of your judgments. 

121 I have done what is just and righteous.

Don’t leave me to my oppressors. 

122 Ensure your servant’s well-being.

Don’t let the proud oppress me. 

123 My eyes fail watching for your yeshu`ah,

For your righteous word. 

124 Deal with your servant according to your loving kindness.

Teach me your statutes. 

125 I am your servant.

Give me understanding,

That I may know your testimonies. 

126 It is time to act, LORD,

For they break your law. 

127 Therefore I love your mitzvot more than gold,

Yes, more than pure gold. 

128 Therefore I consider all of your precepts to be right.

I hate every false way. 

129 Your testimonies are wonderful,

Therefore my soul keeps them. 

130 The entrance of your words gives light.

It gives understanding to the simple. 

131 I opened my mouth wide and panted,

For I longed for your mitzvot. 

132 Turn to me, and have mercy on me,

As you always do to those who love your name. 

133 Establish my footsteps in your word.

Don’t let any iniquity have dominion over me. 

134 Redeem me from the oppression of man,

So I will observe your precepts. 

135 Make your face to shine on your servant.

Teach me your statutes. 

136 Streams of tears run down my eyes,

Because they don’t observe your law.

137 You are righteous, LORD.

your judgments are upright. 

138 You have commanded your statutes in righteousness.

They are fully trustworthy. 

139 My zeal wears me out,

Because my enemies ignore your words. 

140 Your promises have been thoroughly tested,

And your servant loves them. 

141 I am small and despised.

I don’t forget your precepts. 

142 Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness.

Your law is truth. 

143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold of me.

Your mitzvot are my delight. 

144 Your testimonies are righteous forever.

Give me understanding, that I may live. 

145 I have called with my whole heart.

Answer me, LORD!

I will keep your statutes. 

146 I have called to you. Save me!

I will obey your statutes. 

147 I rise before dawn and cry for help.

I put my hope in your words. 

148 My eyes stay open through the night watches,

That I might meditate on your word. 

149 Hear my voice according to your loving kindness.

Revive me, LORD, according to your ordinances.

150 They draw near who follow after wickedness.

They are far from your law. 

151 You are near, LORD.

All your mitzvot are truth. 

152 Of old I have known from your testimonies,

That you have founded them forever. 

153 Consider my affliction, and deliver me,

For I don’t forget your law. 

154 Plead my cause, and redeem me!

Revive me according to your promise. 

155 Salvation is far from the wicked,

For they don’t seek your statutes. 

156 Great are your tender mercies, LORD.

Revive me according to your ordinances. 

157 Many are my persecutors and my adversaries.

I haven’t swerved from your testimonies. 

158 I look at the faithless with loathing,

Because they don’t observe your word. 

159 Consider how I love your precepts.

Revive me, LORD, according to your loving kindness. 

160 All of your words are truth.

Every one of your righteous ordinances endures forever. 

161 Princes have persecuted me without a cause,

But my heart stands in awe of your words. 

162 I rejoice at your word,

As one who finds great spoil. 

163 I hate and abhor falsehood.

I love your law. 

164 Seven times a day, I praise you,

Because of your righteous ordinances. 

165 Those who love your law have great shalom.

Nothing causes them to stumble. 

166 I have hoped for your yeshu`ah, LORD.

I have done your mitzvot. 

167 My soul has observed your testimonies.

I love them exceedingly. 

168 I have obeyed your precepts and your testimonies,

For all my ways are before you. 

169 Let my cry come before you, LORD.

Give me understanding according to your word. 

170 Let my supplication come before you.

Deliver me according to your word. 

171 Let my lips utter praise,

For you teach me your statutes. 

172 Let my tongue sing of your word,

For all your mitzvot are righteousness. 

173 Let your hand be ready to help me,

For I have chosen your precepts.

174 I have longed for your yeshu`ah, LORD.

Your law is my delight.

175 Let my soul live, that I may praise you.

Let your ordinances help me. 

176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep.

Seek your servant, for I don’t forget your mitzvot.

Psalm 149

1 Praise the LORD!

Sing to the LORD a new song,

his praise in the assembly of the holy ones.

2 Let Israel rejoice in him who made them.

Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

3 Let them praise his name in the dance!

Let them sing praises to him with tambourine and harp!

4 For the LORD takes pleasure in his people.

He crowns the humble with salvation [yeshu`ah].

5 Let the holy ones rejoice in honor.

Let them sing for joy on their beds.

6 May the high praises of God be in their mouths,

and a two-edged sword in their hand,

7 to execute vengeance on the nations,

and punishments on the peoples;

8 to bind their kings with chains,

and their nobles with fetters of iron;

9 to execute on them the written judgment.

All his holy ones have this honor.

Praise the LORD!


1 He who is often rebuked and stiffens his neck

Will be destroyed suddenly, with no remedy. 

2 When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice;

But when the wicked rule, the people groan. 

3 Whoever loves wisdom brings joy to his father;

But a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth. 

4 The king by justice makes the land stable,

But he who takes bribes tears it down. 

5 A man who flatters his neighbor,

Spreads a net for his feet. 

6 An evil man is snared by his sin,

But the righteous can sing and be glad. 

7 The righteous care about justice for the poor.

The wicked aren’t concerned about knowledge. 

8 Mockers stir up a city,

But wise men turn away anger.

9 If a wise man goes to court with a foolish man,

The fool rages or scoffs, and there is no shalom. 

10 The bloodthirsty hate a man of integrity;

And they seek the life of the upright. 

11 A fool vents all of his anger,

But a wise man brings himself under control. 

12 If a ruler listens to lies,

All of his officials are wicked. 

13 The poor man and the oppressor have this in common:

The LORD gives sight to the eyes of both. 

14 The king who fairly judges the poor,

His throne shall be established forever. 

15 The rod of correction gives wisdom,

But a child left to himself causes shame to his mother. 

16 When the wicked increase, sin increases;

But the righteous will see their downfall. 

17  Correct your son, and he will give you shalom;

Yes, he will bring delight to your soul. 

18 Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;

But one who keeps the law is blessed. 

19 A servant can’t be corrected by words.

Though he understands, yet he will not respond. 

20 Do you see a man who is hasty in his words?

There is more hope for a fool than for him. 

21 He who pampers his servant from youth

Will have him become a son in the end. 

22 An angry man stirs up strife,

And a wrathful man abounds in sin. 

23 A man’s pride brings him low,

But one who is of a lowly spirit gains honor. 

24 Whoever is an accomplice of a thief is an enemy of his own soul.

He takes an oath, but dares not testify. 

25 The fear of man proves to be a snare,

But whoever puts his trust in the LORD is kept safe. 

26 Many seek the ruler’s favor,

But a man’s justice comes from the LORD. 

27 A dishonest man detests the righteous,

And the upright in their ways detest the wicked.

Old Testament:Isaiah 28:14 – 30:11

28 14 Therefore hear the LORD’s word, you scoffers, that rule this people in Jerusalem: 15 “Because you have said, ‘We have made a covenant with death, and we are in agreement with Sheol.* When the overflowing scourge passes through, it won’t come to us; for we have made lies our refuge, and we have hidden ourselves under falsehood.’ ” 16 Therefore the Lord GOD says, “Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone of a sure foundation. He who believes shall not act hastily. 17 I will make justice the measuring line, and righteousness the plumb line. The hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters will overflow the hiding place. 18 Your covenant with death shall be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol shall not stand. When the overflowing scourge passes through, then you will be trampled down by it. 19 As often as it passes through, it will seize you; for morning by morning it will pass through, by day and by night; and it will be nothing but terror to understand the message.” 20 For the bed is too short to stretch out on, and the blanket is too narrow to wrap oneself in. 21 For the LORD will rise up as on Mount Perazim. He will be angry as in the valley of Gibeon; that he may do his work, his unusual work, and bring to pass his act, his extraordinary act. 22 Now therefore don’t be scoffers, lest your bonds be made strong; for I have heard a decree of destruction from the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, on the whole earth.

23 Give ear, and hear my voice! Listen, and hear my speech! 24 Does he who plows to sow plow continually? Does he keep turning the soil and breaking the clods? 25 When he has leveled its surface, doesn’t he plant the dill, and scatter the cumin seed, and put in the wheat in rows, the barley in the appointed place, and the spelt in its place? 26 For his God instructs him in right judgment and teaches him. 27 For the dill isn’t threshed with a sharp instrument, neither is a cart wheel turned over the cumin; but the dill is beaten out with a stick, and the cumin with a rod. 28 Bread flour must be ground; so he will not always be threshing it. Although he drives the wheel of his threshing cart over it, his horses don’t grind it. 29 This also comes out from the LORD of Hosts, who is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in wisdom.

29 1 Woe to Ariel! Ariel, the city where David encamped! Add year to year; let the feasts come around; 2 then I will distress Ariel, and there will be mourning and lamentation. She shall be to me as an altar hearth.* 3 I will encamp against you all around you, and will lay siege against you with posted troops. I will raise siege works against you. 4 You will be brought down, and will speak out of the ground. Your speech will mumble out of the dust. Your voice will be as of one who has a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and your speech will whisper out of the dust.

5 But the multitude of your foes will be like fine dust, and the multitude of the ruthless ones like chaff that blows away. Yes, it will be in an instant, suddenly. 6 She will be visited by the LORD of Hosts with thunder, with earthquake, with great noise, with whirlwind and storm, and with the flame of a devouring fire. 7 The multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all who fight against her and her stronghold, and who distress her, will be like a dream, a vision of the night. 8 It will be like when a hungry man dreams, and behold, he eats; but he awakes, and his hunger isn’t satisfied; or like when a thirsty man dreams, and behold, he drinks; but he awakes, and behold, he is faint, and he is still thirsty. The multitude of all the nations that fight against Mount Zion will be like that.

9 Pause and wonder! Blind yourselves and be blind! They are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. 10 For the LORD has poured out on you a spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes, the prophets; and he has covered your heads, the seers. 11 All vision has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one who is educated, saying, “Read this, please;” and he says, “I can’t, for it is sealed;” 12 and the book is delivered to one who is not educated, saying, “Read this, please;” and he says, “I can’t read.”

13 The Lord said, “Because this people draws near with their mouth and honors me with their lips, but they have removed their heart far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment of men which has been taught; 14 therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder; and the wisdom of their wise men will perish, and the understanding of their prudent men will be hidden.”

15 Woe to those who deeply hide their counsel from the LORD, and whose deeds are in the dark, and who say, “Who sees us?” and “Who knows us?” 16 You turn things upside down! Should the potter be thought to be like clay, that the thing made should say about him who made it, “He didn’t make me;” or the thing formed say of him who formed it, “He has no understanding?”

17 Isn’t it yet a very little while, and Lebanon will be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field will be regarded as a forest? 18 In that day, the deaf will hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind will see out of obscurity and out of darkness. 19 The humble also will increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. 20 For the ruthless is brought to nothing, and the scoffer ceases, and all those who are alert to do evil are cut off— 21 who cause a person to be indicted by a word, and lay a snare for one who reproves in the gate, and who deprive the innocent of justice with false testimony.

22 Therefore the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, says concerning the house of Jacob: “Jacob shall no longer be ashamed, neither shall his face grow pale. 23 But when he sees his children, the work of my hands, in the middle of him, they will sanctify my name. Yes, they will sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel. 24 They also who err in spirit will come to understanding, and those who grumble will receive instruction.”

30 1 “Woe to the rebellious children”, says the LORD, “who take counsel, but not from me; and who make an alliance, but not with my Spirit, that they may add sin to sin; 2 who set out to go down into Egypt without asking for my advice, to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to take refuge in the shadow of Egypt! 3 Therefore the strength of Pharaoh will be your shame, and the refuge in the shadow of Egypt your confusion. 4 For their princes are at Zoan, and their ambassadors have come to Hanes. 5 They shall all be ashamed because of a people that can’t profit them, that are not a help nor profit, but a shame, and also a reproach.”

6 The burden of the animals of the South.

Through the land of trouble and anguish, of the lioness and the lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent, they carry their riches on the shoulders of young donkeys, and their treasures on the humps of camels, to an unprofitable people. 7 For Egypt helps in vain, and to no purpose; therefore I have called her Rahab who sits still. 8 Now go, write it before them on a tablet, and inscribe it in a book, that it may be for the time to come forever and ever. 9 For it is a rebellious people, lying children, children who will not hear the LORD’s law; 10 who tell the seers, “Don’t see!” and the prophets, “Don’t prophesy to us right things. Tell us pleasant things. Prophesy deceits. 11 Get out of the way. Turn away from the path. Cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.”

New Testament: Galatians 3:23 – 4:31

3 23 But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, confined for the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 So that the law has become our tutor to bring us to Messiah, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor. 26 For you are all children of God, through faith in Messiah Yeshua. 27 For as many of you as were immersed into Messiah have put on Messiah. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Messiah Yeshua. 29 If you are Messiah’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring and heirs according to promise.

4 1 But I say that so long as the heir is a child, he is no different from a bondservant, though he is lord of all, 2 but is under guardians and stewards until the day appointed by the father. 3 So we also, when we were children, were held in bondage under the elemental principles of the world. 4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent out his Son, born to a woman, born under the law, 5 that he might redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as children. 6 And because you are children, God sent out the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, “Abba,* Father!” 7 So you are no longer a bondservant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Messiah.

8 However at that time, not knowing God, you were in bondage to those who by nature are not gods. 9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, why do you turn back again to the weak and miserable elemental principles, to which you desire to be in bondage all over again? 10 You observe days, months, seasons, and years. 11 I am afraid for you, that I might have wasted my labor for you.

12 I beg you, brothers, become as I am, for I also have become as you are. You did me no wrong, 13 but you know that because of weakness in the flesh I preached the Good News to you the first time. 14 That which was a temptation to you in my flesh, you didn’t despise nor reject; but you received me as an angel of God, even as Messiah Yeshua.

15 What was the blessing you enjoyed? For I testify to you that, if possible, you would have plucked out your eyes and given them to me. 16 So then, have I become your enemy by telling you the truth? 17 They zealously seek you in no good way. No, they desire to alienate you, that you may seek them. 18 But it is always good to be zealous in a good cause, and not only when I am present with you.

19 My little children, of whom I am again in travail until Messiah is formed in you— 20 but I could wish to be present with you now, and to change my tone, for I am perplexed about you.

21 Tell me, you that desire to be under the law, don’t you listen to the law? 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the servant, and one by the free woman. 23 However, the son by the servant was born according to the flesh, but the son by the free woman was born through promise. 24 These things contain an allegory, for these are two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai, bearing children to bondage, which is Hagar. 25 For this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and answers to the Jerusalem that exists now, for she is in bondage with her children. 26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, which is the mother of us all. 27 For it is written,

“Rejoice, you barren who don’t bear.

Break out and shout, you who don’t travail.

For the desolate women have more children than her who has a husband.” 

28 Now we, brothers, as Isaac was, are children of promise. 29 But as then, he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, so also it is now. 30 However, what does the Scripture say? “Throw out the servant and her son, for the son of the servant will not inherit with the son of the free woman.” 31 So then, brothers, we are not children of a servant, but of the free woman.

PSALMS: 28, 58, 88, 118, 148





1 To you, LORD, I call.

My rock, don’t be deaf to me;

Lest, if you are silent to me,

I would become like those who go down into the pit.

2 Hear the voice of my petitions, when I cry to you,

When I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place. 

3 Don’t draw me away with the wicked,

With the workers of iniquity who speak shalom with their neighbors,

But mischief is in their hearts. 

4 Give them according to their work,

and according to the wickedness of their doings.

Give them according to the operation of their hands.

Bring back on them what they deserve. 

5 Because they don’t regard the works of the LORD,

Nor the operation of his hands,

He will break them down and not build them up. 

6 Blessed be the LORD,

Because he has heard the voice of my petitions. 

7  The LORD is my strength and my shield.

My heart has trusted in him, and I am helped.

Therefore my heart greatly rejoices.

With my song I will thank him. 

8 The LORD is their strength.

He is a stronghold of salvation to his anointed. 

9 Save your people, and bless your inheritance.

Be their shepherd also, and bear them up forever.


1 Do you indeed speak righteousness, silent ones?

Do you judge blamelessly, you sons of men? 

2 No, in your heart you plot injustice.

You measure out the violence of your hands in the eretz. 

3 The wicked go astray from the womb.

They are wayward as soon as they are born, speaking lies. 

4 Their poison is like the poison of a snake;

Like a deaf cobra that stops its ear, 

5 Which doesn’t listen to the voice of charmers,

No matter how skillful the charmer may be. 

6Break their teeth, God, in their mouth.

Break out the great teeth of the young lions, LORD. 

7 Let them vanish as water that flows away.

When they draw the bow, let their arrows be made blunt. 

8 Let them be as a snail which melts and passes away,

Like the stillborn child, who has not seen the sun. 

9 Before your pots can feel the thorns,

He will sweep away, the green and the burning alike. 

10 The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance.

He shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked; 

11 So that men shall say, “Most assuredly there is a reward for the righteous.

Most assuredly there is a God who judges the eretz.”


1 LORD, the God of my salvation,

I have cried day and night before you. 

2 Let my prayer enter into your presence.

Turn your ear to my cry. 

3 For my soul is full of troubles.

My life draws near to She’ol. 

4 I am counted among those who go down into the pit.

I am like a man who has no help, 

5 Set apart among the dead,

Like the slain who lie in the grave,

Whom you remember no more.

They are cut off from your hand. 

6 You have laid me in the lowest pit,

In the darkest depths. 

7  Your wrath lies heavily on me.

You have afflicted me with all your waves.


8 You have taken my friends from me.

You have made me an abomination to them.

I am confined, and I can’t escape. 

9 My eyes are dim from grief.

I have called on you daily, LORD.

I have spread out my hands to you. 

10 Do you show wonders to the dead?

Do the dead rise up and praise you? Selah.

11 Is your loving kindness declared in the grave?

Or your faithfulness in Destruction? 

12 Are your wonders made known in the dark?

Or your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness? 

13 But to you, LORD, I have cried.

In the morning, my prayer comes before you. 

14 LORD, why do you reject my soul?

Why do you hide your face from me? 

15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up.

While I suffer your terrors, I am distracted. 

16 Your fierce wrath has gone over me.

Your terrors have cut me off. 

17 They came around me like water all day long.

They completely engulfed me. 

18 You have put lover and friend far from me,

And my friends into darkness.


1 Praise the LORD!

Praise the LORD from the heavens!

Praise him in the heights! 

2 Praise him, all his angels!

Praise him, all his host!

3 Praise him, sun and moon!

Praise him, all you shining stars! 

4 Praise him, you heavens of heavens,

You waters that are above the heavens. 

5 Let them praise the name of the LORD, ‘

For he commanded, and they were created. 

6 He has also established them forever and ever.

He has made a decree which will not pass away. 

7 Praise the LORD from the eretz,

You great sea creatures, and all depths! 

8 Lightning and hail, snow and clouds;

Stormy wind, fulfilling his word; 

9 Mountains and all hills;

Fruit trees and all cedars; 

10 Wild animals and all cattle;

Small creatures and flying birds; 

11 Kings of the eretz and all peoples;

Princes and all judges of the eretz; 

12 Both young men and maidens;

Old men and children: 

13 Let them praise the name of the LORD,

For his name alone is exalted.

His glory is above the eretz and the heavens. 

14 He has lifted up the horn of his people,

The praise of all his holy ones;

Even of the children of Yisra’el, a people near to him.

Praise the LORD!


1 The wicked flee when no one pursues;

But the righteous are as bold as a lion. 

2 In rebellion, a land has many rulers,

But order is maintained by a man of understanding and knowledge. 

3 A needy man who oppresses the poor

Is like a driving rain which leaves no crops. 

4 Those who forsake the law praise the wicked;

But those who keep the law contend with them. 

5 Evil men don’t understand justice;

But those who seek the LORD understand it fully. 

6 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity,

Than he who is perverse in his ways, and he is rich. 

7 Whoever keeps the law is a wise son;

But he who is a companion of gluttons shames his father. 

8 He who increases his wealth by excessive interest

Gathers it for one who has pity on the poor. 

9 He who turns away his ear from hearing the law,

Even his prayer is an abomination. 

10 Whoever causes the upright to go astray in an evil way,

He will fall into his own trap;

But the blameless will inherit good. 

11 The rich man is wise in his own eyes;

But the poor who has understanding sees through him. 

12 When the righteous triumph, there is great glory;

But when the wicked rise, men hide themselves. 

13 He who conceals his sins doesn’t prosper,

But whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy. 

14 Blessed is the man who always fears;

But one who hardens his heart falls into trouble. 

15 As a roaring lion or a charging bear,

So is a wicked ruler over helpless people. 

16 The ruler who lacks judgment is a great tyrant.

One who hates ill-gotten gain will have long days.

17 A man who is tormented by life blood will be a fugitive until death;

No one will support him. 

18 Whoever walks blamelessly is kept safe;

But one with perverse ways will fall suddenly. 

19 One who works his land will have an abundance of food;

But one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty. 

20 A faithful man is rich with blessings;

But one who is eager to be rich will not go unpunished.

21 To show partiality is not good;

Yet a man will do wrong for a piece of bread. 

22 A stingy man hurries after riches,

And doesn’t know that poverty waits for him. 

23 One who rebukes a man will afterward find more favor

Than one who flatters with the tongue. 

24 Whoever robs his father or his mother, and says,

“It’s not wrong.”

He is a partner with a destroyer. 

25 One who is greedy stirs up strife;

But one who trusts in the LORD will prosper. 

26 One who trusts in himself is a fool;

But one who walks in wisdom, he is kept safe. 

27 One who gives to the poor has no lack;

But one who closes his eyes will have many curses. 

28 When the wicked rise, men hide themselves;

But when they perish, the righteous thrive.


25:1 The LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you, I will praise your name; for you have done wonderful things, [even] counsels of old, in faithfulness [and] truth. 2 For you have made of a city a heap, of a fortified city a ruin, a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built. 3 Therefore shall a strong people glorify you; a city of awesome nations shall fear you. 4 For you have been a stronghold to the poor, a stronghold to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat, when the blast of the awesome ones is as a storm against the wall. 5 As the heat in a dry place will you bring down the noise of strangers; as the heat by the shade of a cloud, the song of the awesome ones shall be brought low. 6 In this mountain will the LORD of Hosts make to all peoples a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 7 He will destroy in this mountain the surface of the covering that covers all peoples, and the veil that is spread over all nations. 8 He has swallowed up death forever; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the reproach of his people will he take away from off all the eretz: for the LORD has spoken it. 9 It shall be said in that day, Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his yeshu`ah. 10 For in this mountain will the hand of the LORD rest; and Mo’av shall be trodden down in his place, even as straw is trodden down in the water of the dung-hill. 11 He shall spread forth his hands in the midst of it, as he who swims spreads forth [his hands] to swim; but [the LORD] will lay low his pride together with the craft of his hands. 12 The high fortress of your walls has he brought down, laid low, and brought to the ground, even to the dust.

26:1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Yehudah: we have a strong city; yeshu`ah will he appoint for walls and bulwarks. 2 Open you the gates, that the righteous nation which keeps faith may enter in. 3 You will keep [him] in perfect shalom, [whose] mind [is] stayed [on you]; because he trusts in you. 4 Trust in the LORD forever; for in the LORD, the LORD, is an everlasting Rock. 5 For he has brought down those who dwell on high, the lofty city: he lays it low, he lays it low even to the ground; he brings it even to the dust. 6 The foot shall tread it down; even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy. 7 The way of the just is uprightness: you that are upright do direct the path of the just. 8 Yes, in the way of your judgments, the LORD, have we waited for you; to your name, even to your memorial [name], is the desire of our soul. 9 With my soul have I desired you in the night; yes, with my spirit within me will I seek you earnestly: for when your judgments are in the eretz, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness. 10 Let favor be shown to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness will he deal wrongfully, and will not see the majesty of the LORD. 11 The LORD, your hand is lifted up, yet they don’t see: but they shall see [your] zeal for the people, and be put to shame; yes, fire shall devour your adversaries. 12 The LORD, you will ordain shalom for us; for you have also worked all our works for us. 13 The LORD our God, other lords besides you have had dominion over us; but by you only will we make mention of your name. 14 [They are] dead, they shall not live; [they are] deceased, they shall not rise: therefore have you visited and destroyed them, and made all memory of them to perish. 15 You have increased the nation, O LORD, you have increased the nation; you are glorified; you have enlarged all the borders of the land. 16 LORD, in trouble have they visited you; they poured out a prayer [when] your chastening was on them. 17 Like as a woman with child, who draws near the time of her delivery, is in pain and cries out in her pangs; so we have been before you, LORD. 18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not worked any deliverance in the eretz; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen. 19 Your dead shall live; my dead bodies shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in the dust; for your dew is [as] the dew of herbs, and the eretz shall cast forth the dead. 20 Come, my people, enter you into your chambers, and shut your doors about you: hide yourself for a little moment, until the indignation be past. 21 For, behold, the LORD comes forth out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the eretz for their iniquity: the eretz also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

27:1 In that day the LORD with his hard and great and strong sword will punish livyatan the swift serpent, and livyatan the crooked serpent; and he will kill the monster that is in the sea. 2 In that day: A vineyard of wine, sing you to it. 3 I the LORD am its keeper; I will water it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day. 4 Wrath is not in me: would that the briers and thorns were against me in battle! I would march on them, I would burn them together. 5 Or else let him take hold of my strength, that he may make shalom with me; [yes], let him make shalom with me. 6 In days to come shall Ya`akov take root; Yisra’el shall blossom and bud; and they shall fill the surface of the world with fruit. 7 Has he struck them as he struck those who struck them? or are they slain according to the slaughter of those who were slain by them? 8 In measure, when you send them away, you do contend with them; he has removed [them] with his rough blast in the day of the east wind. 9 Therefore by this shall the iniquity of Ya`akov be forgiven, and this is all the fruit of taking away his sin: that he makes all the stones of the altar as chalk stones that are beaten in sunder, [so that] the Asherim and the sun-images shall rise no more. 10 For the fortified city is solitary, a habitation deserted and forsaken, like the wilderness: there shall the calf feed, and there shall he lie down, and consume the branches of it. 11 When the boughs of it are withered, they shall be broken off; the women shall come, and set them on fire; for it is a people of no understanding: therefore he who made them will not have compassion on them, and he who formed them will show them no favor. 12 It shall happen in that day, that the LORD will beat off [his fruit] from the flood of the River to the brook of Mitzrayim; and you shall be gathered one by one, you children of Yisra’el. 13 It shall happen in that day, that a great shofar shall be blown; and they shall come who were ready to perish in the land of Ashshur, and those who were outcasts in the land of Mitzrayim; and they shall worship the LORD in the holy mountain at Yerushalayim.

28:1 Woe to the crown of pride of the drunkards of Efrayim, and to the fading flower of his glorious beauty, which is on the head of the fat valley of those who are overcome with wine! 2 Behold, the Lord has a mighty and strong one; as a tempest of hail, a destroying storm, as a tempest of mighty waters overflowing, will he cast down to the eretz with the hand. 3 The crown of pride of the drunkards of Efrayim shall be trodden under foot: 4 and the fading flower of his glorious beauty, which is on the head of the fat valley, shall be as the first-ripe fig before the summer; which when he who looks on it sees, while it is yet in his hand he eats it up. 5 In that day will the LORD of Hosts become a crown of glory, and a diadem of beauty, to the residue of his people; 6 and a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment, and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate. 7 Even these reel with wine, and stagger with strong drink; the Kohen and the prophet reel with strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they stagger with strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment. 8 For all tables are full of vomit [and] filthiness, [so that there is] no place [clean]. 9 Whom will he teach knowledge? and whom will he make to understand the message? those who are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts? 10 For it is precept on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little. 11 No, but by [men of] strange lips and with another language will he speak to this people; 12 to whom he said, This is the rest, give you rest to him who is weary; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. 13 Therefore shall the word of the LORD be to them precept on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little; that they may go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.


3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who doesn’t continue in all things that are written in the book of the law, to do them.” 

11 Now that no man is justified by the law before God is evident, for, “The righteous will live by faith.” 

12 The law is not of faith, but, “The man who does them will live by them.” 

13 Messiah redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree,” 

14 that the blessing of Avraham might come on the Goyim through Messiah Yeshua; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. 

15 Brothers, I speak like men. Though it is only a man’s covenant, yet when it has been confirmed, no one makes it void, or adds to it. 

16 Now the promises were spoken to Avraham and to his seed. He doesn’t say, “To seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “To your seed,” which is Messiah. 

17 Now I say this. A covenant confirmed beforehand by God in Messiah, the law, which came four hundred and thirty years after, does not annul, so as to make the promise of no effect. 

18 For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no more of promise; but God has granted it to Avraham by promise. 

19 What then is the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the seed should come to whom the promise has been made. It was ordained through angels by the hand of a mediator. 

20 Now a mediator is not between one, but God is one. 

21 Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could make alive, most assuredly righteousness would have been of the law. 

22 But the Scriptures shut up all things under sin, that the promise by faith in Yeshua the Messiah might be given to those who believe.

PSALMS: 27, 57, 87, 117, 147




Psalms 27

1 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 evil-doers came at me to eat up my flesh,

Even my adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell. 

3 Though a host should encamp against me,

My heart shall not fear.

Though war should rise against me,

Even then I will be confident. 

4 One thing have I asked 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 see the beauty of the LORD,

And to inquire in his temple. 

5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me secretly in his pavilion.

In the covert of his tent will he hide me.

He will lift me up on a rock. 

6 Now shall my head be lifted up above my enemies around me.

I will offer sacrifices of joy in his tent.

I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD. 

7 Hear, LORD, when I cry with my voice.

Have mercy also on me, and answer me. 

8 When you said, “Seek my face,”

My heart said to you,

“I will seek your face, LORD.” 

9 Don’t hide your face from me.

Don’t put your servant away in anger.

You have been my help.

Don’t abandon me, neither forsake me,

God of my salvation. 

10 When my father and my mother forsake me,

Then the LORD will take me up. 

11 Teach me your way, LORD.

Lead me in a straight path, because of my enemies.

12 Don’t deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries,

For false witnesses have risen up against me,

Such as breathe out cruelty. 

13 I am still confident of this:

I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. 

14 Wait for the LORD.

Be strong, and let your heart take courage.

Yes, wait for the LORD.


1 Be merciful to me, God, be merciful to me,

For my soul takes refuge in you.

Yes, in the shadow of your wings,

I will take refuge,

Until disaster has passed. 

2 I cry out to El `Elyon,

To God who accomplishes my requests for me. 

3 He will send from heaven, and save me,

He rebukes the one who is pursuing me.


God will send out his loving kindness and his truth. 

4 My soul is among lions.

I lie among those who are set on fire,

Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows,

And their tongue a sharp sword. 

5 Be exalted, God, above the heavens!

Let your glory be above all the eretz! 

6 They have prepared a net for my steps.

My soul is bowed down.

They dig a pit before me.

They fall into the midst of it themselves.


7 My heart is steadfast, God, my heart is steadfast.

I will sing, yes,

I will sing praises. 

8 Wake up, my glory!

Wake up, psaltery and harp!

I will wake up the dawn. 

9 I will give thanks to you, Lord, among the peoples.

I will sing praises to you among the nations. 

10 For your great loving kindness reaches to the heavens,

And your truth to the skies. 

11 Be exalted, God, above the heavens.

Let your glory be over all the eretz.


1 His foundation is in the holy mountains. 

2 The LORD loves the gates of Tziyon More than all the dwellings of Ya`akov. 

3 Glorious things are spoken about you, city of God.


4 I will record Rachav and Bavel among those who acknowledge me.

Behold, Peleshet, Tzor, and also Kush:

“This one was born there.” 

5 Yes, of Tziyon it will be said,

“This one and that one was born in her;”

The Elyon himself will establish her. 

6 The LORD will count, when he writes up the peoples,

“This one was born there.”


7 Those who sing as well as those who dance say, “

All my springs are in you.”


1 Praise the LORD, all you nations!

Extol him, all you peoples! 

2 For his loving kindness is great toward us.

The LORD’s faithfulness endures forever.

Praise the LORD!


1 Praise the LORD,

For it is good to sing praises to our God;

For it is pleasant and fitting to praise him. 

2 The LORD builds up Yerushalayim.

He gathers together the outcasts of Yisra’el. 

3 He heals the broken in heart,

And binds up their wounds. 

4 He counts the number of the stars.

He calls them all by their names. 

5 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power.

His understanding is infinite. 

6 The LORD upholds the humble.

He brings the wicked down to the ground.

7  Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving.

Sing praises on the harp to our God, 

8 Who covers the sky with clouds,

Who prepares rain for the eretz,

Who makes grass grow on the mountains. 

9 He provides food for the cattle,

And for the young ravens when they call. 

10 He doesn’t delight in the strength of the horse.

He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man. 

11 The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him,

In those who hope in his loving kindness. 

12 Praise the LORD, Yerushalayim!

Praise your God, Tziyon! 

13 For he has strengthened the bars of your gates.

He has blessed your children within you. 

14He makes shalom in your borders.

He fills you with the finest of the wheat. 

15 He sends out his mitzvah on eretz.

His word runs very swiftly. 

16 He gives snow like wool,

And scatters frost like ashes.

17  He hurls down his hail like pebbles.

Who can stand before his cold? 

18 He sends out his word, and melts them.

He causes his wind to blow, and the waters flow. 

19 He shows his word to Ya`akov;

His statutes and his ordinances to Yisra’el. 

20 He has not done this for any nation;

They don’t know his ordinances.

Praise the LORD!


1 Don’t boast about tomorrow;

For you don’t know what a day may bring forth. 

2 Let another man praise you,

And not your own mouth;

A stranger, and not your own lips. 

3 A stone is heavy, And sand is a burden;

But a fool’s provocation is heavier than both. 

4 Wrath is cruel,

And anger is overwhelming;

But who is able to stand before jealousy? 

5 Better is open rebuke Than hidden love. 

6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend;

Although the kisses of an enemy are profuse.

7 A full soul loathes a honeycomb;

But to a hungry soul, every bitter thing is sweet. 

8 As a bird that wanders from her nest,

So is a man who wanders from his home. 

9 Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart;

So does earnest counsel from a man’s friend. 

10 Don’t forsake your friend and your father’s friend.

Don’t go to your brother’s house in the day of your disaster:

Better is a neighbor who is near than a distant brother. 

11 Be wise, my son,

And bring joy to my heart,

Then I can answer my tormentor. 

12 A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge;

But the simple pass on, and suffer for it:

13 Take his garment when he puts up collateral for a stranger;

Hold it for a wayward woman! 

14 He who blesses his neighbor with a loud voice early in the morning,

It will be taken as a curse by him.

15 A continual dropping on a rainy day

And a contentious wife are alike: 

16 Restraining her is like restraining the wind,

Or like grasping oil in his right hand. 

17 Iron sharpens iron;

So a man sharpens his friend’s countenance. 

18 Whoever tends the fig tree shall eat its fruit.

He who looks after his master shall be honored. 

19 As water reflects a face,

So a man’s heart reflects the man. 

20 She’ol and Avaddon are never satisfied;

And a man’s eyes are never satisfied.

21 The crucible is for silver,

And the furnace for gold;

But man is refined by his praise. 

22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with grain,

Yet his foolishness will not be removed from him. 

23 Know well the state of your flocks,

And pay attention to your herds: 

24 For riches are not forever,

Nor does even the crown endure to all generations. 

25 The hay is removed, and the new growth appears,

The grasses of the hills are gathered in. 

26 The lambs are for your clothing,

And the goats are the price of a field. 

27 There will be plenty of goats’ milk for your food,

For your family’s food,

And for the nourishment of your servant girls.


22:1 The burden of the valley of vision. What ails you now, that you are wholly gone up to the housetops? 2 You that are full of shouting, a tumultuous city, a joyous town; your slain are not slain with the sword, neither are they dead in battle. 3 All your rulers fled away together, they were bound by the archers; all who were found of you were bound together; they fled afar off. 4 Therefore said I, Look away from me, I will weep bitterly; don’t labor to comfort me for the destruction of the daughter of my people. 5 For it is a day of confusion, and of treading down, and of perplexity, from the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, in the valley of vision; a breaking down of the walls, and a crying to the mountains. 6 `Elam bore the quiver, with chariots of men [and] horsemen; and Kir uncovered the shield. 7 It happened that your choicest valleys were full of chariots, and the horsemen set themselves in array at the gate. 8 He took away the covering of Yehudah; and you did look in that day to the armor in the house of the forest. 9 You saw the breaches of the city of David, that they were many; and you gathered together the waters of the lower pool; 10 and you numbered the houses of Yerushalayim, and you broke down the houses to fortify the wall; 11 you made also a reservoir between the two walls for the water of the old pool. But you didn’t look to him who had done this, neither did you have respect for him who purposed it long ago. 12 In that day did the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth: 13 and behold, joy and gladness, killing oxen and killing sheep, eating flesh and drinking wine: let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we shall die. 14 The LORD of Hosts revealed himself in my ears, Surely this iniquity shall not be forgiven you until you die, says the Lord, the LORD of Hosts. 15 Thus says the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, Go, get yourself to this treasurer, even to Shevna, who is over the house, [and say], 16 “What are you doing here? and who has you here, that you have hewed out a tomb here? Cutting him out a tomb on high, chiseling a habitation for himself in the rock!” 17 Behold, the LORD, like a [strong] man, will hurl you away violently; yes, he will wrap you up closely. 18 He will surely wind you round and round, [and toss you] like a ball into a large country; there shall you die, and there shall be the chariots of your glory, you shame of your lord’s house. 19 I will thrust you from your office; and from your station shall you be pulled down. 20 It shall happen in that day, that I will call my servant Elyakim the son of Hilkiyah: 21 and I will cloth him with your robe, and strengthen him with your belt, and I will commit your government into his hand; and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, and to the house of Yehudah. 22 The key of the house of David will I lay on his shoulder; and he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open. 23 I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a throne of glory to his father’s house. 24 They shall hang on him all the glory of his father’s house, the offspring and the issue, every small vessel, from the cups even to all the pitchers. 25 In that day, says the LORD of hosts, shall the nail that was fastened in a sure place give way; and it shall be hewn down, and fall; and the burden that was on it shall be cut off; for the LORD has spoken it.

23:1 The burden of Tzor. Howl, you ships of Tarshish; for it is laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in: from the land of Kittim it is revealed to them. 2 Be still, you inhabitants of the coast, you whom the merchants of Tzidon, that pass over the sea, have replenished. 3 On great waters the seed of the Shichor, the harvest of the Nile, was her revenue; and she was the market of nations. 4 Be ashamed, Tzidon; for the sea has spoken, the stronghold of the sea, saying, I have not travailed, nor brought forth, neither have I nourished young men, nor brought up virgins 5 When the report comes to Mitzrayim, they shall be sorely pained at the report of Tzor. 6 Pass over to Tarshish; wail, you inhabitants of the coast. 7 Is this your joyous [city], whose antiquity is of ancient days, whose feet carried her afar off to sojourn? 8 Who has purposed this against Tzor, the giver of crowns, whose merchants are princes, whose traffickers are the honorable of the eretz? 9 The LORD of hosts has purposed it, to stain the pride of all glory, to bring into contempt all the honorable of the eretz. 10 Pass through your land as the Nile, daughter of Tarshish; there is no restraint any more. 11 He has stretched out his hand over the sea, he has shaken the kingdoms: the LORD has given mitzvah concerning Kana`an, to destroy the strongholds of it. 12 He said, You shall no more rejoice, you oppressed virgin daughter of Tzidon: arise, pass over to Kittim; even there shall you have no rest. 

13 Behold, the land of the Kasdim: this people was not; the Ashshur founded it for those who dwell in the wilderness; they set up their towers; they overthrew the palaces of it; they made it a ruin. 14 Howl, you ships of Tarshish; for your stronghold is laid waste 15 It shall come to pass in that day, that Tzor shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years it shall be to Tzor as in the song of the prostitute. 16 Take a harp, go about the city, you prostitute that has been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that you may be remembered. 17 It shall happen after the end of seventy years, that the LORD will visit Tzor, and she shall return to her hire, and shall play the prostitute with all the kingdoms of the world on the surface of the eretz. 18 Her merchandise and her hire shall be holiness to the LORD: it shall not be treasured nor laid up; for her merchandise shall be for those who dwell before the LORD, to eat sufficiently, and for durable clothing.

24:1 Behold, the LORD makes the eretz empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad the inhabitants of it. 2 It shall be, as with the people, so with the Kohen; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the creditor, so with the debtor; as with the taker of interest, so with the giver of interest to him. 3 The eretz shall be utterly emptied, and utterly laid waste; for the LORD has spoken this word. 4 The eretz mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away, the lofty people of the eretz do languish. 5 The eretz also is polluted under the inhabitants of it; because they have transgressed the laws, violated the statutes, broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore has the curse devoured the eretz, and those who dwell therein are found guilty: therefore the inhabitants of the eretz are burned, and few men left. 7 The new wine mourns, the vine languishes, all the merry-hearted do sigh. 8 The mirth of timbrels ceases, the noise of those who rejoice ends, the joy of the harp ceases. 9 They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to those who drink it. 10 The waste city is broken down; every house is shut up, that no man may come in. 11 There is a crying in the streets because of the wine; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone. 12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is struck with destruction. 13 For thus shall it be in the midst of the eretz among the peoples, as the shaking of an olive tree, as the gleanings when the vintage is done. 14 These shall lift up their voice, they shall shout; for the majesty of the LORD they cry aloud from the sea. 15 Therefore glorify the LORD in the east, even the name of the LORD, the God of Yisra’el, in the isles of the sea! 16 From the uttermost part of the eretz have we heard songs: Glory to the righteous. But I said, I pine away, I pine away, woe is me! the treacherous have dealt treacherously; yes, the treacherous have dealt very treacherously. 17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are on you, O inhabitant of the eretz. 18 It shall happen, that he who flees from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he who comes up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows on high are opened, and the foundations of the eretz tremble. 19 The eretz is utterly broken, the eretz is torn apart, the eretz is shaken violently. 20 The eretz shall stagger like a drunken man, and shall sway back and forth like a hammock; and the disobedience of it shall be heavy on it, and it shall fall, and not rise again. 21 It shall happen in that day, that the LORD will punish the host of the high ones on high, and the kings of the eretz on the eretz. 22 They shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison; and after many days shall they be visited. 23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed; for the LORD of Hosts will reign on Mount Tziyon, and in Yerushalayim; and before his Zakenim shall be glory.


2:17 But if, while we sought to be justified in Messiah, we ourselves also were found sinners, is Messiah a servant of sin? God forbid! 18 For if I build up again those things which I destroyed, I prove myself a law-breaker. 19 For I, through the law, died to the law, that I might live to God. 20 I have been crucified with Messiah, and it is no longer I that live, but Messiah living in me. That life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me. 21 I don’t make void the grace of God. For if righteousness is through the law, then Messiah died for nothing!”

3:1 Foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you not to obey the truth, before whose eyes Yeshua the Messiah was openly set forth among you as crucified? 2 I just want to learn this from you. Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith? 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now completed in the flesh? 4 Did you suffer so many things in vain, if it is indeed in vain? 5 He therefore that supplies the Spirit to you, and works miracles among you, does he do it by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith? 6 Even as Avraham “believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness.” 7 Know therefore that those who are of faith, the same are sons of Avraham. 8 The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Goyim by faith, preached the Good News beforehand to Avraham, saying, “In you will all the nations be blessed.” 9 So then, those who are of faith are blessed with the faithful Avraham.

PSALMS: 26, 56, 86, 116, 146





1 Judge me, LORD, for I have walked in my integrity.

I have trusted also in LORD without wavering. 

2 Examine me, LORD, and prove me.

Try my heart and my mind. 

3 For your loving kindness is before my eyes.

I have walked in your truth. 

4 I have not sat with deceitful men,

Neither will I go in with hypocrites. 

5 I hate the assembly of evil-doers,

And will not sit with the wicked. 

6 I will wash my hands in innocence,

So I will go about your altar, LORD; 

7 That I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard,

And tell of all your wondrous works. 

8 LORD, I love the habitation of your house,

The place where your glory dwells. 

9 Don’t gather my soul with sinners,

Nor my life with bloodthirsty men; 

10 In whose hands is wickedness,

Their right hand is full of bribes. 

11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity.

Redeem me, and be merciful to me. 

12 My foot stands in an even place.

In the congregations will I bless the LORD.


1 Be merciful to me, God, for man wants to swallow me up.

All day long, he attacks and oppresses me. 

2 My enemies want to swallow me up all day long,

For they are many who fight proudly against me. 

3 When I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. 

4 In God, I praise his word. In God,

I put my trust. I will not be afraid.

What can flesh do to me? 

5 All day long they twist my words.

All their thoughts are against me for evil. 

6 They conspire and lurk,

Watching my steps, they are eager to take my life. 

7 Shall they escape by iniquity? I

n anger cast down the peoples, God. 

8 You number my wanderings.

You put my tears into your bottle.

Aren’t they in your book? 

9 Then shall my enemies turn back in the day that I call.

I know this, that God is for me. 

10 In God, I will praise his word. In the LORD,

I will praise his word. 

11 I have put my trust in God.

I will not be afraid.

What can man do to me? 

12 Your vows are on me, God.

I will give thank offerings to you. 

13 For you have delivered my soul from death,

And prevented my feet from falling,

That I may walk before God in the light of the living.


1 Hear, LORD, and answer me,

For I am poor and needy. 

2 Preserve my soul, for I am godly.

You, my God, save your servant who trusts in you. 

3 Be merciful to me, Lord,

For I call to you all day long.

4 Bring joy to the soul of your servant,

For to you, Lord, do I lift up my soul. 

5 For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive;

Abundant in loving kindness to all those who call on you. 

6 Hear, LORD, my prayer.

Listen to the voice of my petitions. 

7  In the day of my trouble I will call on you,

For you will answer me. 

8 There is no one like you among the gods, Lord,

Nor any deeds like your deeds. 

9 All nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord.

They shall glorify your name. 

10 For you are great, and do wondrous things.

You are God alone. 

11 Teach me your way, LORD.

I will walk in your truth.

Make my heart undivided to fear your name. 

12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with my whole heart.

I will glorify your name forevermore. 

13 For your loving kindness is great toward me.

You have delivered my soul from the lowest She’ol. 

14 God, the proud have risen up against me.

A company of violent men have sought after my soul,

And they don’t hold regard for you before them. 

15 But you, Lord, are a merciful and gracious God,

Slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness and truth. 

16 Turn to me, and have mercy on me!

Give your strength to your servant.

Save the son of your handmaid. 

17  Show me a sign of your goodness,

That those who hate me may see it, and be put to shame,

Because you, LORD, have helped me, and comforted me.


1 I love the LORD, because he listens to my voice,

And my cries for mercy. 

2 Because he has turned his ear to me,

Therefore I will call on him as long as I live. 

3 The cords of death surrounded me,

The pains of She’ol got a hold on me.

I found trouble and sorrow. 

4 Then called I on the name of the LORD:

“The LORD, I beg you, deliver my soul.” 

5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous;

Yes, our God is merciful. 

6 The LORD preserves the simple.

I was brought low, and he saved me. 

7 Return to your rest, my soul,

For the LORD has dealt bountifully with you. 

8 For you have delivered my soul from death,

My eyes from tears,

And my feet from falling. 

9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living. 

10 I believed, therefore I said,

“I was greatly afflicted.” 

11 I said in my haste,

“All men are liars.” 

12 What will I give to the LORD for all his benefits toward me?

13 I will take the cup of salvation,

and call on the name of the LORD. 

14 I will pay my vows to the LORD,

Yes, in the presence of all his people. 

15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his holy ones. 

16 LORD, truly I am your servant.

I am your servant, the son of your handmaid.

You have freed me from my chains. 

17 I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving,

And will call on the name of the LORD. 

18 I will pay my vows to the LORD,

Yes, in the presence of all his people, 

19 In the courts of the LORD’s house,

In the midst of you, Yerushalayim.

Praise the LORD!


1 Praise the LORD!

Praise the LORD, my soul. 

2 While I live, I will praise the LORD.

I will sing praises to my God as long as I exist. 

3 Don’t put your trust in princes,

Each a son of man in whom there is no help. 

4 His spirit departs, and he returns to the eretz.

In that very day, his thoughts perish. 

5 Happy is he who has the God of Ya`akov for his help,

Whose hope is in the LORD, his God: 

6 Who made heaven and eretz,

The sea, and all that is in them;

Who keeps truth forever; 

7 Who executes justice for the oppressed;

Who gives food to the hungry.

The LORD frees the prisoners. 

8 The LORD opens the eyes of the blind.

The LORD raises up those who are bowed down.

The LORD loves the righteous. 

9 The LORD preserves the sojourners.

He upholds the fatherless and widow,

But the way of the wicked he turns upside down. 

10 The LORD will reign forever;

Your God, O Tziyon, to all generations. Praise the LORD!


1 Like snow in summer, and as rain in harvest,

So honor is not fitting for a fool. 

2 Like a fluttering sparrow,

Like a darting swallow,

So the undeserved curse doesn’t come to rest. 

3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the donkey,

And a rod for the back of fools! 

4 Don’t answer a fool according to his folly,

Lest you also be like him.

5 Answer a fool according to his folly,

Lest he be wise in his own eyes. 

6 One who sends a message by the hand of a fool

Is cutting off feet and drinking violence. 

7 Like the legs of the lame that hang loose:

So is a parable in the mouth of fools. 

8 As one who binds a stone in a sling,

So is he who gives honor to a fool. 

9 Like a thornbush that goes into the hand of a drunkard,

So is a parable in the mouth of fools. 

10 As an archer who wounds all,

So is he who hires a fool

Or he who hires those who pass by. 

11 As a dog that returns to his vomit,

So is a fool who repeats his folly. 

12 Do you see a man wise in his own eyes?

There is more hope for a fool than for him. 

13 The sluggard says,

“There is a lion in the road!

A fierce lion roams the streets!” 

14 As the door turns on its hinges,

So does the sluggard on his bed. 

15 The sluggard buries his hand in the dish.

He is too lazy to bring it back to his mouth. 

16 The sluggard is wiser in his own eyes

Than seven men who answer with discretion. 

17 Like one who seizes a dog’s ears

Is one who passes by and meddles in a quarrel not his own. 

18 Like a madman who shoots firebrands, arrows, and death, 

19 Is the man who deceives his neighbor and says,

“Am I not joking?” 

20 For lack of wood the fire goes out;

Where there is no gossip, a quarrel dies down. 

21 As coals are to hot embers, And wood to fire,

So is a contentious man to kindle strife.

22 The words of a whisperer are as dainty morsels,

They go down into the innermost parts. 

23 Like silver dross on an earthen vessel

Are the lips of a fervent one with an evil heart. 

24 A malicious man disguises himself with his lips,

But he harbors evil in his heart. 

25 When his speech is charming, don’t believe him;

For there are seven abominations in his heart: 

26 His malice may be concealed by deception,

But his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly. 

27 Whoever digs a pit shall fall into it. ‘

Whoever rolls a stone, it will come back on him. 

28 A lying tongue hates those it hurts;

And a flattering mouth works ruin.


19:1 The burden of Mitzrayim. Behold, the LORD rides on a swift cloud, and comes to Mitzrayim: and the idols of Mitzrayim shall tremble at his presence; and the heart of Mitzrayim shall melt in the midst of it. 2 I will stir up the Mitzrim against the Mitzrim: and they shall fight everyone against his brother, and everyone against his neighbor; city against city, [and] kingdom against kingdom. 3 The spirit of Mitzrayim shall fail in the midst of it; and I will destroy the counsel of it: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to those who have familiar spirits, and to the wizards. 4 I will give over the Mitzrim into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, says the Lord, the LORD of Hosts. 5 The waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and become dry. 6 The rivers shall become foul; the streams of Mitzrayim shall be diminished and dried up; the reeds and flags shall wither away. 7 The meadows by the Nile, by the brink of the Nile, and all the sown fields of the Nile, shall become dry, be driven away, and be no more. 8 The fishermen shall lament, and all those who cast angle into the Nile shall mourn, and those who spread nets on the waters shall languish. 9 Moreover those who work in combed flax, and those who weave white cloth, shall be confounded. 10 The pillars [of Mitzrayim] shall be broken in pieces; all those who work for hire [shall be] grieved in soul. 11 The princes of Tzo`an are utterly foolish; the counsel of the wisest counselors of Par`oh is become brutish: how do you say to Par`oh, I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings? 12 Where then are your wise men? and let them tell you now; and let them know what the LORD of Hosts has purposed concerning Mitzrayim. 13 The princes of Tzo`an are become fools, the princes of Mof are deceived; they have caused Mitzrayim to go astray, who are the corner-stone of her tribes. 14 The LORD has mixed a spirit of perverseness in the midst of her; and they have caused Mitzrayim to go astray in every work of it, as a drunken man staggers in his vomit. 15 Neither shall there be for Mitzrayim any work, which head or tail, palm-branch or rush, may do. 16 In that day shall the Mitzrim be like women; and they shall tremble and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the LORD of Hosts, which he shakes over them.17 The land of Yehudah shall become a terror to Mitzrayim; everyone to whom mention is made of it shall be afraid, because of the purpose of the LORD of Hosts, which he purposes against it. 18 In that day there shall be five cities in the land of Mitzrayim that speak the language of Kana`an, and swear to the LORD of hosts; one shall be called The city of destruction. 19 In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Mitzrayim, and a pillar at the border of it to the LORD. 20 It shall be for a sign and for a witness to the LORD of Hosts in the land of Mitzrayim; for they shall cry to the LORD because of oppressors, and he will send them a savior, and a defender, and he will deliver them. 21 The LORD shall be known to Mitzrayim, and the Mitzrim shall know the LORD in that day; yes, they shall worship with sacrifice and offering, and shall vow a vow to the LORD, and shall perform it. 22 The LORD will strike Mitzrayim, smiting and healing; and they shall return to the LORD, and he will be entreated of them, and will heal them. 23 In that day shall there be a highway out of Mitzrayim to Ashshur, and the Ashshur shall come into Mitzrayim, and the Mitzrian into Ashshur; and the Mitzrim shall worship with the Ashshur. 24 In that day shall Yisra’el be the third with Mitzrayim and with Ashshur, a blessing in the midst of the eretz; 25 because the LORD of Hosts has blessed them, saying, Blessed be Mitzrayim my people, and Ashshur the work of my hands, and Yisra’el my inheritance.

20:1 In the year that Tartan came to Ashdod, when Sargon the king of Ashshur sent him, and he fought against Ashdod and took it; 2 at that time the LORD spoke by Yesha`yahu the son of Amotz, saying, Go, and loose the sackcloth from off your loins, and put your shoe from off your foot. He did so, walking naked and barefoot. 3 The LORD said, Like as my servant Yesha`yahu has walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and a wonder concerning Mitzrayim and concerning Kush; 4 so shall the king of Ashshur lead away the captives of Mitzrayim, and the exiles of Kush, young and old, naked and barefoot, and with buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Mitzrayim. 5 They shall be dismayed and confounded, because of Kush their expectation, and of Mitzrayim their glory. 6 The inhabitant of this coast-land shall say in that day, Behold, such is our expectation, where we fled for help to be delivered from the king of Ashshur: and we, how shall we escape?

21:1 The burden of the wilderness of the sea. As whirlwinds in the South sweep through, it comes from the wilderness, from an awesome land. 2 A grievous vision is declared to me; the treacherous man deals treacherously, and the destroyer destroys. Go up, `Elam; besiege, Madai; all the sighing of it have I made to cease. 3 Therefore are my loins filled with anguish; pangs have taken hold on me, as the pangs of a woman in travail: I am pained so that I can’t hear; I am dismayed so that I can’t see. 4 My heart flutters, horror has frightened me; the twilight that I desired has been turned into trembling to me. 5 They prepare the table, they set the watch, they eat, they drink: rise up, you princes, anoint the shield. 6 For thus has the Lord said to me, Go, set a watchman: let him declare what he sees: 7 and when he sees a troop, horsemen in pairs, a troop of donkeys, a troop of camels, he shall listen diligently with much heed. 8 He cried as a lion: Lord, I stand continually on the watch-tower in the day-time, and am set in my ward whole nights; 9 and, behold, here comes a troop of men, horsemen in pairs. He answered, Fallen, fallen is Bavel; and all the engraved images of her gods are broken to the ground. 10 You my threshing, and the grain of my floor! that which I have heard from the LORD of hosts, the God of Yisra’el, have I declared to you. 11 The burden of Dumah. One calls to me out of Se`ir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night? 12 The watchman said, “The morning comes, and also the night. If you will inquire, inquire. Come back again.” 13 The burden on `Arav. In the forest in `Arav shall you lodge, you caravans of Dedanim. 14 To him who was thirsty they brought water; the inhabitants of the land of Tema did meet the fugitives with their bread. 15 For they fled away from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the heat of battle. 16 For thus has the Lord said to me, Within a year, according to the years of a hireling, all the glory of Kedar shall fail; 17 and the residue of the number of the archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar, shall be few; for the LORD, the God of Yisra’el, has spoken it.


2:1 Then after a period of fourteen years I went up again to Yerushalayim with Bar-Nabba, taking Titus also with me. 

2 I went up by revelation, and I laid before them the Good News which I preach among the Goyim, but privately before those who were respected, for fear that I might be running, or had run, in vain. 

3 But not even Titus, who was with me, being a Yevanit, was compelled to be circumcised. 

4 This was because of the false brothers secretly brought in, who stole in to spy out our liberty which we have in Messiah Yeshua, that they might bring us into bondage; 

5 to whom we gave no place in the way of subjection, not for an hour, that the truth of the Good News might continue with you. 

6 But from those who were reputed to be important (whatever they were, it makes no difference to me; God doesn’t show partiality to man) — they, I say, who were respected imparted nothing to me, 

7 but to the contrary, when they saw that I had been entrusted with the Good News for the uncircumcision, even as Kefa with the Good News for the circumcision

8 (for he who appointed Kefa to the apostleship of the circumcision appointed me also to the Goyim); 

9 and when they perceived the grace that was given to me, Ya`akov and Kefa and Yochanan, they who were reputed to be pillars, gave to me and Bar-Nabba the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Goyim, and they to the circumcision. 

10 They only asked us to remember the poor — which very thing I was also zealous to do. 

11 But when Kefa came to Antioch, I resisted him to the face, because he stood condemned.

12 For before some people came from Ya`akov, he ate with the Goyim. But when they came, he drew back and separated himself, fearing those who were of the circumcision. 

13 And the rest of the Yehudim joined him in his hypocrisy; so much that even Bar-Nabba was carried away with their hypocrisy. 

14 But when I saw that they didn’t walk uprightly according to the truth of the Good News, I said to Kefa before them all, “If you, being a Yehudi, live as the Goyim do, and not as the Yehudim do, why do you compel the Goyim to live as the Yehudim do? 

15 “We, being Yehudim by nature, and not Goy sinners, 

16 yet knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but through the faith of Yeshua the Messiah, even we believed in Messiah Yeshua, that we might be justified by faith in Messiah, and not by the works of the law, because no flesh will be justified by the works of the law.
