440

Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, And His praise in the congregation of the godly ones.

441

I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!"

442

I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies, As much as in all riches.

444

The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice; Let the many islands be glad.

445

For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; In the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock.

446

Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the LORD; We have blessed you from the house of the LORD.

447

Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power; In holy array, from the womb of the dawn, Your youth are to You as the dew.

448

Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will dwell securely.

449

Hear this, all peoples; Give ear, all inhabitants of the world,

453

Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul!

454

I am poured out like water, And all my bones are out of joint; My heart is like wax; It is melted within me.

455

How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

456

I will extol You, O LORD, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my enemies rejoice over me.

457

Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered, And let those who hate Him flee before Him.

462

But the lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children's children,

465

I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old,

466

I will set no worthless thing before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; It shall not fasten its grip on me.

467

You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.

468

Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary

469

O God, the nations have invaded Your inheritance; They have defiled Your holy temple; They have laid Jerusalem in ruins.

470

The righteous cry, and the LORD hears And delivers them out of all their troubles.

471

They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.

472

Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul.

473

Tell of His glory among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.

475

"Hear, O LORD, and be gracious to me; O LORD, be my helper."

476

Therefore the LORD has recompensed me according to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands in His eyes.

477

We will not conceal them from their children, But tell to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, And His strength and His wondrous works that He has done.

478

For You do not delight in sacrifice, otherwise I would give it; You are not pleased with burnt offering.

479

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Lovingkindness and truth go before You.

480

Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.

482

For He established a testimony in Jacob And appointed a law in Israel, Which He commanded our fathers That they should teach them to their children,

483

O LORD, You showed favor to Your land; You restored the captivity of Jacob.

484

How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.

485

It is vain for you to rise up early, To retire late, To eat the bread of painful labors; For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.

486

When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away Through my groaning all day long.

487

He makes the winds His messengers, Flaming fire His ministers.

492

Remember the word to Your servant, In which You have made me hope.

493

Yet You are He who brought me forth from the womb; You made me trust when upon my mother's breasts.

494

It is good for me that I was afflicted, That I may learn Your statutes.

495

Praise the LORD! I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart, In the company of the upright and in the assembly.

496

May he also rule from sea to sea And from the River to the ends of the earth.

497

O God, we have heard with our ears, Our fathers have told us The work that You did in their days, In the days of old.

498

He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, And vegetation for the labor of man, So that he may bring forth food from the earth,

499

May my prayer be counted as incense before You; The lifting up of my hands as the evening offering.

500

All the prosperous of the earth will eat and worship, All those who go down to the dust will bow before Him, Even he who cannot keep his soul alive.

501

But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.

502

For you have made the LORD, my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place.

505

For evildoers will be cut off, But those who wait for the LORD, they will inherit the land.

507

Lovingkindness and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

508

May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob set you securely on high!

512

The Lord gives the command; The women who proclaim the good tidings are a great host:

513

I was mute and silent, I refrained even from good, And my sorrow grew worse.

516

The LORD is righteous in all His ways And kind in all His deeds.

518

To You, O LORD, I call; My rock, do not be deaf to me, For if You are silent to me, I will become like those who go down to the pit.

520

Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication; And let them say continually, "The LORD be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant."

521

The heavens are the heavens of the LORD, But the earth He has given to the sons of men.

523

In whose eyes a reprobate is despised, But who honors those who fear the LORD; He swears to his own hurt and does not change;

524

O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me; Let them bring me to Your holy hill And to Your dwelling places.

525

What shall I render to the LORD For all His benefits toward me?

526

Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity, And I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.

527

My soul cleaves to the dust; Revive me according to Your word.

528

Then I said, "Behold, I come; In the scroll of the book it is written of me.

529

I will hear what God the LORD will say; For He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones; But let them not turn back to folly.

530

Praise the LORD! Praise, O servants of the LORD, Praise the name of the LORD.

531

O LORD my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me.

533

One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty acts.

534

"LORD, make me to know my end And what is the extent of my days; Let me know how transient I am.

536

The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime; And His song will be with me in the night, A prayer to the God of my life.

537

How great is Your goodness, Which You have stored up for those who fear You, Which You have wrought for those who take refuge in You, Before the sons of men!

538

I said, "I will guard my ways That I may not sin with my tongue; I will guard my mouth as with a muzzle While the wicked are in my presence."

540

Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man? The lovingkindness of God endures all day long.

541

How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, Whose hope is in the LORD his God,

543

I will bless the LORD who has counseled me; Indeed, my mind instructs me in the night.

544

How blessed is the man whose strength is in You, In whose heart are the highways to Zion!

546

"He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me; And to him who orders his way aright I shall show the salvation of God."

547

I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord; I have no good besides You."

548

O LORD, by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong; You hid Your face, I was dismayed.

549

The LORD reigns, let the peoples tremble; He is enthroned above the cherubim, let the earth shake!

550

Your hands made me and fashioned me; Give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments.

552

O daughter of Babylon, you devastated one, How blessed will be the one who repays you With the recompense with which you have repaid us.

553

I will not die, but live, And tell of the works of the LORD.

554

O LORD, do save, we beseech You; O LORD, we beseech You, do send prosperity!

555

Lift up your hands to the sanctuary And bless the LORD.

556

With all my heart I have sought You; Do not let me wander from Your commandments.

557

When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh, My adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell.

558

With Your counsel You will guide me, And afterward receive me to glory.

560

My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God?

561

Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins; Let them not rule over me; Then I will be blameless, And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.

562

O LORD, in Your strength the king will be glad, And in Your salvation how greatly he will rejoice!

563

If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.

565

Cease from anger and forsake wrath; Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.

566

I have chosen the faithful way; I have placed Your ordinances before me.

567

Incline Your ear, O LORD, and answer me; For I am afflicted and needy.

568

Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.

570

In my distress I called upon the LORD, And cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, And my cry for help before Him came into His ears.

571

Say among the nations, "The LORD reigns; Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved; He will judge the peoples with equity."

572

Whatever the LORD pleases, He does, In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps.

573

Upon You I was cast from birth; You have been my God from my mother's womb.

575

You will not be afraid of the terror by night, Or of the arrow that flies by day;

576

Your testimonies are wonderful; Therefore my soul observes them.

577

By You I have been sustained from my birth; You are He who took me from my mother's womb; My praise is continually of You.

579

They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt; There is no one who does good, not even one.

580

How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! O LORD, they walk in the light of Your countenance.

581

Contend, O LORD, with those who contend with me; Fight against those who fight against me.

582

Nevertheless I am continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand.

583

Who will stand up for me against evildoers? Who will take his stand for me against those who do wickedness?

584

"Behold, You have made my days as handbreadths, And my lifetime as nothing in Your sight; Surely every man at his best is a mere breath. Selah.

585

Open to me the gates of righteousness; I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to the LORD.

586

But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, That I may tell of all Your works.

587

You have dealt well with Your servant, O LORD, according to Your word.

589

O LORD, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes haughty; Nor do I involve myself in great matters, Or in things too difficult for me.

593

He does not put out his money at interest, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent He who does these things will never be shaken.

594

Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners will be converted to You.

595

The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; But they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any good thing.

596

Then the earth shook and quaked; And the foundations of the mountains were trembling And were shaken, because He was angry.

597

Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores His captive people, Jacob will rejoice, Israel will be glad.

598

From my distress I called upon the LORD; The LORD answered me and set me in a large place.

599

Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.

600

We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks, For Your name is near; Men declare Your wondrous works.

601

There will be silence before You, and praise in Zion, O God, And to You the vow will be performed.

602

Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more; And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there.

603

How blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit!

605

He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, And speaks truth in his heart.

606

Worship the LORD in holy attire; Tremble before Him, all the earth.

608

How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, Who seek Him with all their heart.

610

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises!

611

O You who hear prayer, To You all men come.

613

O my God, my soul is in despair within me; Therefore I remember You from the land of the Jordan And the peaks of Hermon, from Mount Mizar.

614

O LORD, God of vengeance, God of vengeance, shine forth!

615

Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men!

616

As for me, I shall call upon God, And the LORD will save me.

617

Many bulls have surrounded me; Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled me.

618

Give ear to my prayer, O God; And do not hide Yourself from my supplication.

620

But there is forgiveness with You, That You may be feared.

621

From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

622

Sing to the LORD, bless His name; Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day.

623

Surely I have composed and quieted my soul; Like a weaned child rests against his mother, My soul is like a weaned child within me.

624

You hide Your face, they are dismayed; You take away their spirit, they expire And return to their dust.

626

The LORD will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul.

627

Behold, He who keeps Israel Will neither slumber nor sleep.

629

As smoke is driven away, so drive them away; As wax melts before the fire, So let the wicked perish before God.

630

But let the righteous be glad; let them exult before God; Yes, let them rejoice with gladness.

631

My flesh trembles for fear of You, And I am afraid of Your judgments.

632

If I should say, "My foot has slipped," Your lovingkindness, O LORD, will hold me up.

633

For he will deliver the needy when he cries for help, The afflicted also, and him who has no helper.

634

Once God has spoken; Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God;

635

The righteous will inherit the land And dwell in it forever.

636

And lovingkindness is Yours, O Lord, For You recompense a man according to his work.

637

Righteous are You, O LORD, And upright are Your judgments.

638

Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.

639

He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood And has not sworn deceitfully.

640

As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.

641

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me.

642

He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

643

The cords of death encompassed me, And the torrents of ungodliness terrified me.

644

How blessed is the one whom You choose and bring near to You To dwell in Your courts We will be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Your holy temple.

646

The LORD has sworn to David A truth from which He will not turn back: "Of the fruit of your body I will set upon your throne.

647

And do not enter into judgment with Your servant, For in Your sight no man living is righteous.

649

O God, why have You rejected us forever? Why does Your anger smoke against the sheep of Your pasture?

651

He has sent redemption to His people; He has ordained His covenant forever; Holy and awesome is His name.

652

My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies and from those who persecute me.

653

But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever.

654

Come and hear, all who fear God, And I will tell of what He has done for my soul.

655

Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He instructs sinners in the way.

656

Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders which You have done, And Your thoughts toward us; There is none to compare with You If I would declare and speak of them, They would be too numerous to count.

657

Let my tongue sing of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness.

658

Great are the works of the LORD; They are studied by all who delight in them.

659

O God, do not remain quiet; Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.

660

Let the kings of Tarshish and of the islands bring presents; The kings of Sheba and Seba offer gifts.

661

Praise Him with trumpet sound; Praise Him with harp and lyre.

663

Therefore I will give thanks to You among the nations, O LORD, And I will sing praises to Your name.

664

But You, O LORD, be not far off; O You my help, hasten to my assistance.

667

No man can by any means redeem his brother Or give to God a ransom for him--

668

Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, Is Mount Zion in the far north, The city of the great King.

669

Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; Your judgments are like a great deep O LORD, You preserve man and beast.

670

Praise the LORD! Praise the name of the LORD; Praise Him, O servants of the LORD,

671

This will be written for the generation to come, That a people yet to be created may praise the LORD.

672

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand,

674

O LORD, rebuke me not in Your wrath, And chasten me not in Your burning anger.

675

He sent from on high, He took me; He drew me out of many waters.

678

My soul languishes for Your salvation; I wait for Your word.

679

To You I lift up my eyes, O You who are enthroned in the heavens!

680

The dead do not praise the LORD, Nor do any who go down into silence;

681

Once You spoke in vision to Your godly ones, And said, "I have given help to one who is mighty; I have exalted one chosen from the people.

682

Passing through the valley of Baca they make it a spring; The early rain also covers it with blessings.

684

Hear my prayer, O LORD! And let my cry for help come to You.

685

"I also shall make him My firstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth.

687

My strength is dried up like a potsherd, And my tongue cleaves to my jaws; And You lay me in the dust of death.

688

You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever.

690

Then the King will desire your beauty. Because He is your Lord, bow down to Him.

691

Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face continually.

692

For the wrath of man shall praise You; With a remnant of wrath You will gird Yourself.

693

They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.

694

Vindicate me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation; O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!

695

Be gracious to me, O God, for man has trampled upon me; Fighting all day long he oppresses me.

696

For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the LORD made the heavens.

698

For not from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the desert comes exaltation;

699

The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples.

700

He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.

701

But as for me, I trust in You, O LORD, I say, "You are my God."

702

The sorrows of those who have bartered for another god will be multiplied; I shall not pour out their drink offerings of blood, Nor will I take their names upon my lips.

703

But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth; I humbled my soul with fasting, And my prayer kept returning to my bosom.

704

He will not fear evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.

705

I will meditate on Your precepts And regard Your ways.

706

Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; It rejoices as a strong man to run his course.

707

He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariots with fire.

708

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, The holy dwelling places of the Most High.

710

He rode upon a cherub and flew; And He sped upon the wings of the wind.

711

"These things you have done and I kept silence; You thought that I was just like you; I will reprove you and state the case in order before your eyes.

712

Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts!

713

You who have shown me many troubles and distresses Will revive me again, And will bring me up again from the depths of the earth.

714

May Your lovingkindnesses also come to me, O LORD, Your salvation according to Your word;

716

"I have found David My servant; With My holy oil I have anointed him,

717

The LORD is my portion; I have promised to keep Your words.

718

May our God come and not keep silence; Fire devours before Him, And it is very tempestuous around Him.

720

Their idols are silver and gold, The work of man's hands.

721

The voice of the LORD is upon the waters; The God of glory thunders, The LORD is over many waters.

722

The cords of Sheol surrounded me; The snares of death confronted me.

724

Establish my footsteps in Your word, And do not let any iniquity have dominion over me.

725

The LORD looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men;

726

My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the LORD; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.

727

I shall run the way of Your commandments, For You will enlarge my heart.

728

Let all the earth fear the LORD; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.

729

A God greatly feared in the council of the holy ones, And awesome above all those who are around Him?

730

All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia; Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.

732

May their table before them become a snare; And when they are in peace, may it become a trap.

733

Covering Yourself with light as with a cloak, Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain.

735

Save me from the lion's mouth; From the horns of the wild oxen You answer me.

737

A thousand may fall at your side And ten thousand at your right hand, But it shall not approach you.

738

And I will walk at liberty, For I seek Your precepts.

739

No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent.

740

Deliver me from my enemies, O my God; Set me securely on high away from those who rise up against me.

741

The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me.

742

If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,

744

Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You in a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters they will not reach him.

745

Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones; And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.

746

Remember, O LORD, on David's behalf, All his affliction;

747

May they be blotted out of the book of life And may they not be recorded with the righteous.

748

But for Your sake we are killed all day long; We are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.

749

His foundation is in the holy mountains.

750

Consider and answer me, O LORD my God; Enlighten my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death,

751

For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper And from the deadly pestilence.

752

Rescue me, O LORD, from evil men; Preserve me from violent men

754

All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, And they shall glorify Your name.

755

The wicked plots against the righteous And gnashes at him with his teeth.

756

O satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness, That we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

757

You removed a vine from Egypt; You drove out the nations and planted it.

758

Let all those be ashamed who serve graven images, Who boast themselves of idols; Worship Him, all you gods.

759

Who is the man who desires life And loves length of days that he may see good?

761

Who executes justice for the oppressed; Who gives food to the hungry The LORD sets the prisoners free.

763

O God, You have rejected us You have broken us; You have been angry; O, restore us.

764

All the paths of the LORD are lovingkindness and truth To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.

765

How blessed are the people who are so situated; How blessed are the people whose God is the LORD!

767

I shall remember the deeds of the LORD; Surely I will remember Your wonders of old.

768

All Your works shall give thanks to You, O LORD, And Your godly ones shall bless You.

769

So I will bless You as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.

770

Envoys will come out of Egypt; Ethiopia will quickly stretch out her hands to God.

771

Those who go down to the sea in ships, Who do business on great waters;

772

O Israel, hope in the LORD; For with the LORD there is lovingkindness, And with Him is abundant redemption.

773

Listen, O daughter, give attention and incline your ear: Forget your people and your father's house;

776

They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons,

777

For the LORD is a great God And a great King above all gods,

778

Will You not Yourself revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You?

779

Do you indeed speak righteousness, O gods? Do you judge uprightly, O sons of men?

780

My soul will make its boast in the LORD; The humble will hear it and rejoice.

781

Turn away my eyes from looking at vanity, And revive me in Your ways.

782

Incline Your ear to me, rescue me quickly; Be to me a rock of strength, A stronghold to save me.

783

The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade on your right hand.

785

I cry aloud with my voice to the LORD; I make supplication with my voice to the LORD.

786

Princes persecute me without cause, But my heart stands in awe of Your words.

787

Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory.

788

Let his days be few; Let another take his office.
