Psalms 27, 57, 87, 117, 147

 

Proverbs:  27

 

Psalms 27

 

Of David.

1 The LORD is my light and my salvation–

whom shall I fear?

The LORD is the stronghold of my life–

of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When evil men advance against me

to devour my flesh, A

when my enemies and my foes attack me,

they will stumble and fall.

3 Though an army besiege me,

my heart will not fear;

though war break out against me,

even then will I be confident.

 

4 One thing I ask of the LORD,

this is what I seek:

that I may dwell in the house of the LORD

all the days of my life,

to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD

and to seek him in his temple.

5 For in the day of trouble

he will keep me safe in his dwelling;

he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle

and set me high upon a rock.

 

6 Then my head will be exalted

above the enemies who surround me;

at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy;

I will sing and make music to the LORD.   [1]

7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD;

be merciful to me and answer me.

8 My heart says of you, “Seek his B face!”

Your face, LORD, I will seek.

9 Do not hide your face from me,

do not turn your servant away in anger;

you have been my helper.

Do not reject me or forsake me,

O God my Savior.

 

10 Though my father and mother forsake me,

the LORD will receive me.

11 Teach me your way, O LORD;

lead me in a straight path

because of my oppressors.

12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,

for false witnesses rise up against me,

breathing out violence.

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 take heart

and wait for the LORD.

 

PSALMS:  57

 

1 Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me,

for in you my soul takes refuge.

I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings

until the disaster has passed.

2 I cry out to God Most High,

to God, who fulfills his purpose for me.

3 He sends from heaven and saves me,

rebuking those who hotly pursue me;

Selah

God sends his love and his faithfulness.

4 I am in the midst of lions;

I lie among ravenous beasts–

men whose teeth are spears and arrows,

whose tongues are sharp swords.

5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;

let your glory be over all the earth.

6 They spread a net for my feet–

I was bowed down in distress.

They dug a pit in my path–

but they have fallen into it themselves.

Selah  [2]

7 My heart is steadfast, O God,

my heart is steadfast;

I will sing and make music.

8 Awake, my soul!

Awake, harp and lyre!

I will awaken the dawn.

9 I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations;

I will sing of you among the peoples.

10 For great is your love, reaching to the heavens;

your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;

let your glory be over all the earth. [3]

 

PSALMS:  87

 

Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm. A song.

1 He has set his foundation on the holy mountain;

2 the LORD loves the gates of Zion

more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are said of you,

O city of God:

Selah

4 “I will record Rahab A and Babylon

among those who acknowledge me–

Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush B

and will say, `This C one was born in Zion.'”

5 Indeed, of Zion it will be said,

“This one and that one were born in her,

and the Most High himself will establish her.”

6 The LORD will write in the register of the peoples:

“This one was born in Zion.”

Selah

7 As they make music they will sing,

“All my fountains are in you.” [4]

 

PSALMS:  117

 

1 Praise the LORD, all you nations;

extol him, all you peoples.

2 For great is his love toward us,

and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever.

Praise the LORD. A [5]

 

PSALMS:  147

 

1 Praise the LORD. A

How good it is to sing praises to our God,

how pleasant and fitting to praise him!

2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem;

he gathers the exiles of Israel.

3 He heals the brokenhearted

and binds up their wounds.

4 He determines the number of the stars

and calls them each by name.

5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power;

his understanding has no limit.

6 The LORD sustains the humble

but casts the wicked to the ground.

7 Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;

make music to our God on the harp.

8 He covers the sky with clouds;

he supplies the earth with rain

and makes grass grow on the hills.

9 He provides food for the cattle

and for the young ravens when they call.

10 His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,

nor his delight in the legs of a man;

11 the LORD delights in those who fear him,

who put their hope in his unfailing love. [6]

12 Extol the LORD, O Jerusalem;

praise your God, O Zion,

13 for he strengthens the bars of your gates

and blesses your people within you.

14 He grants peace to your borders

and satisfies you with the finest of wheat.

 

15 He sends his command to the earth;

his word runs swiftly.

16 He spreads the snow like wool

and scatters the frost like ashes.

17 He hurls down his hail like pebbles.

Who can withstand his icy blast?

18 He sends his word and melts them;

he stirs up his breezes, and the waters flow.

19 He has revealed his word to Jacob,

his laws and decrees to Israel.

20 He has done this for no other nation;

they do not know his laws.

Praise the LORD. [7]

 

PROVERBS:  27

 

27 1 Do not boast about tomorrow,

for you do not know what a day may bring forth.

2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth;

someone else, and not your own lips.

3 Stone is heavy and sand a burden,

but provocation by a fool is heavier than both.

4 Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming,

but who can stand before jealousy?

5 Better is open rebuke

than hidden love.

6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted,

but an enemy multiplies kisses.

7 He who is full loathes honey,

but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet.

8 Like a bird that strays from its nest

is a man who strays from his home.

9 Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart,

and the pleasantness of one’s friend springs from his earnest counsel.

10 Do not forsake your friend and the friend of your father,

and do not go to your brother’s house when disaster strikes you–

better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.

11 Be wise, my son, and bring joy to my heart;

then I can answer anyone who treats me with contempt. [8]

12 The prudent see danger and take refuge,

but the simple keep going and suffer for it.

13 Take the garment of one who puts up security for a stranger;

hold it in pledge if he does it for a wayward woman.

14 If a man loudly blesses his neighbor early in the morning,

it will be taken as a curse.

15 A quarrelsome wife is like

a constant dripping on a rainy day;

16 restraining her is like restraining the wind

or grasping oil with the hand.

17 As iron sharpens iron,

so one man sharpens another.

18 He who tends a fig tree will eat its fruit,

and he who looks after his master will be honored.

19 As water reflects a face,

so a man’s heart reflects the man.

20 Death and Destruction A are never satisfied,

and neither are the eyes of man.

21 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold,

but man is tested by the praise he receives.

22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar,

grinding him like grain with a pestle,

you will not remove his folly from him. [9]

23 Be sure you know the condition of your flocks,

give careful attention to your herds;

24 for riches do not endure forever,

and a crown is not secure for all generations.

25 When the hay is removed and new growth appears

and the grass from the hills is gathered in,

26 the lambs will provide you with clothing,

and the goats with the price of a field.

27 You will have plenty of goats’ milk

to feed you and your family

and to nourish your servant girls. [10]
