Most Relevant Verses
How happy is the man
who does not follow the advice of the wicked
or take the path of sinners
or join a group of mockers! Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction,
and he meditates on it day and night. He is like a tree planted beside streams of water
that bears its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.
May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable to You,
Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.
Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable—if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise—dwell on these things.
I keep the Lord in mind always.
Because He is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.
I will meditate on Your precepts
and think about Your ways. I will delight in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word.

For the choir director: on the Gittith. A Davidic psalm.Yahweh, our Lord,
how magnificent is Your name throughout the earth!You have covered the heavens with Your majesty. Because of Your adversaries,
You have established a stronghold
from the mouths of children and nursing infants
to silence the enemy and the avenger. When I observe Your heavens,
the work of Your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which You set in place,read more.
what is man that You remember him,
the son of man that You look after him? You made him little less than God
and crowned him with glory and honor. You made him lord over the works of Your hands;
You put everything under his feet: all the sheep and oxen,
as well as the animals in the wild, the birds of the sky,
and the fish of the sea
that pass through the currents of the seas. Yahweh, our Lord,
how magnificent is Your name throughout the earth!
My soul, praise Yahweh!
Lord my God, You are very great;
You are clothed with majesty and splendor. He wraps Himself in light as if it were a robe,
spreading out the sky like a canopy, laying the beams of His palace
on the waters above,
making the clouds His chariot,
walking on the wings of the wind,read more.
and making the winds His messengers,
flames of fire His servants. He established the earth on its foundations;
it will never be shaken. You covered it with the deep
as if it were a garment;
the waters stood above the mountains. At Your rebuke the waters fled;
at the sound of Your thunder they hurried away— mountains rose and valleys sank—
to the place You established for them. You set a boundary they cannot cross;
they will never cover the earth again. He causes the springs to gush into the valleys;
they flow between the mountains. They supply water for every wild beast;
the wild donkeys quench their thirst. The birds of the sky live beside the springs;
they sing among the foliage. He waters the mountains from His palace;
the earth is satisfied by the fruit of Your labor. He causes grass to grow for the livestock
and provides crops for man to cultivate,
producing food from the earth, wine that makes man’s heart glad—
making his face shine with oil—
and bread that sustains man’s heart. The trees of the Lord flourish,
the cedars of Lebanon that He planted. There the birds make their nests;
the stork makes its home in the pine trees. The high mountains are for the wild goats;
the cliffs are a refuge for hyraxes. He made the moon to mark the festivals;
the sun knows when to set. You bring darkness, and it becomes night,
when all the forest animals stir. The young lions roar for their prey
and seek their food from God. The sun rises; they go back
and lie down in their dens. Man goes out to his work
and to his labor until evening. How countless are Your works, Lord!
In wisdom You have made them all;
the earth is full of Your creatures. Here is the sea, vast and wide,
teeming with creatures beyond number—
living things both large and small. There the ships move about,
and Leviathan, which You formed to play there. All of them wait for You
to give them their food at the right time. When You give it to them,
they gather it;
when You open Your hand,
they are satisfied with good things. When You hide Your face,
they are terrified;
when You take away their breath,
they die and return to the dust. When You send Your breath,
they are created,
and You renew the face of the earth. May the glory of the Lord endure forever;
may the Lord rejoice in His works. He looks at the earth, and it trembles;
He touches the mountains,
and they pour out smoke. I will sing to the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God while I live. May my meditation be pleasing to Him;
I will rejoice in the Lord.
Look at the birds of the sky: They don’t sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you worth more than they? Can any of you add a single cubit to his height by worrying? And why do you worry about clothes? Learn how the wildflowers of the field grow: they don’t labor or spin thread.read more.
Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these! If that’s how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and thrown into the furnace tomorrow, won’t He do much more for you—you of little faith?
Consider the ravens: They don’t sow or reap; they don’t have a storeroom or a barn; yet God feeds them. Aren’t you worth much more than the birds? Can any of you add a cubit to his height by worrying? If then you’re not able to do even a little thing, why worry about the rest?read more.
“Consider how the wildflowers grow: They don’t labor or spin thread. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these!
The Lord will send His faithful love by day;
His song will be with me in the night—
a prayer to the God of my life.
Let the arrogant be put to shame
for slandering me with lies;
I will meditate on Your precepts. Let those who fear You,
those who know Your decrees, turn to me. May my heart be blameless regarding Your statutes
so that I will not be put to shame.read more.
?KafI long for Your salvation;
I put my hope in Your word. My eyes grow weary
looking for what You have promised;
I ask, “When will You comfort me?” Though I have become like a wineskin dried by smoke,
I do not forget Your statutes. How many days must Your servant wait?
When will You execute judgment on my persecutors? The arrogant have dug pits for me;
they violate Your instruction. All Your commands are true;
people persecute me with lies—help me! They almost ended my life on earth,
but I did not abandon Your precepts. Give me life in accordance with Your faithful love,
and I will obey the decree You have spoken. ?LamedLord, Your word is forever;
it is firmly fixed in heaven. Your faithfulness is for all generations;
You established the earth, and it stands firm. They stand today in accordance with Your judgments,
for all things are Your servants. If Your instruction had not been my delight,
I would have died in my affliction. I will never forget Your precepts,
for You have given me life through them. I am Yours; save me,
for I have sought Your precepts. The wicked hope to destroy me,
but I contemplate Your decrees. I have seen a limit to all perfection,
but Your command is without limit. ?MemHow I love Your instruction!
It is my meditation all day long. Your commands make me wiser than my enemies,
for they are always with me. I have more insight than all my teachers
because Your decrees are my meditation. I understand more than the elders
because I obey Your precepts. I have kept my feet from every evil path
to follow Your word. I have not turned from Your judgments,
for You Yourself have instructed me. How sweet Your word is to my taste—
sweeter than honey in my mouth. I gain understanding from Your precepts;
therefore I hate every false way. ?NunYour word is a lamp for my feet
and a light on my path. I have solemnly sworn
to keep Your righteous judgments. I am severely afflicted;
Lord, give me life through Your word. Lord, please accept my willing offerings of praise,
and teach me Your judgments. My life is constantly in danger,
yet I do not forget Your instruction. The wicked have set a trap for me,
but I have not wandered from Your precepts. I have Your decrees as a heritage forever;
indeed, they are the joy of my heart. I am resolved to obey Your statutes
to the very end. ?SamekI hate those who are double-minded,
but I love Your instruction. You are my shelter and my shield;
I put my hope in Your word. Depart from me, you evil ones,
so that I may obey my God’s commands. Sustain me as You promised, and I will live;
do not let me be ashamed of my hope. Sustain me so that I can be safe
and always be concerned about Your statutes. You reject all who stray from Your statutes,
for their deceit is a lie. You remove all the wicked on earth
as if they were dross;
therefore, I love Your decrees. I tremble in awe of You;
I fear Your judgments. ?AyinI have done what is just and right;
do not leave me to my oppressors. Guarantee Your servant’s well-being;
do not let the arrogant oppress me. My eyes grow weary looking for Your salvation
and for Your righteous promise. Deal with Your servant based on Your faithful love;
teach me Your statutes. I am Your servant; give me understanding
so that I may know Your decrees. It is time for the Lord to act,
for they have violated Your instruction. Since I love Your commands
more than gold, even the purest gold, I carefully follow all Your precepts
and hate every false way. ?PeYour decrees are wonderful;
therefore I obey them. The revelation of Your words brings light
and gives understanding to the inexperienced. I open my mouth and pant
because I long for Your commands. Turn to me and be gracious to me,
as is Your practice toward those who love Your name. Make my steps steady through Your promise;
don’t let any sin dominate me. Redeem me from human oppression,
and I will keep Your precepts. Show favor to Your servant,
and teach me Your statutes. My eyes pour out streams of tears
because people do not follow Your instruction. ?TsadeYou are righteous, Lord,
and Your judgments are just. The decrees You issue are righteous
and altogether trustworthy. My anger overwhelms me
because my foes forget Your words. Your word is completely pure,
and Your servant loves it. I am insignificant and despised,
but I do not forget Your precepts. Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness,
and Your instruction is true. Trouble and distress have overtaken me,
but Your commands are my delight. Your decrees are righteous forever.
Give me understanding, and I will live. ?QofI call with all my heart; answer me, Lord.
I will obey Your statutes. I call to You; save me,
and I will keep Your decrees. I rise before dawn and cry out for help;
I put my hope in Your word. I am awake through each watch of the night
to meditate on Your promise.
So he got up and went. There was an Ethiopian man, a eunuch and high official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was in charge of her entire treasury. He had come to worship in Jerusalem and was sitting in his chariot on his way home, reading the prophet Isaiah aloud. The Spirit told Philip, “Go and join that chariot.”read more.
When Philip ran up to it, he heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, “Do you understand what you’re reading?” “How can I,” he said, “unless someone guides me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. Now the Scripture passage he was reading was this:He was led like a sheep to the slaughter,
and as a lamb is silent before its shearer,
so He does not open His mouth. In His humiliation justice was denied Him.
Who will describe His generation?
For His life is taken from the earth. The eunuch replied to Philip, “I ask you, who is the prophet saying this about—himself or another person?” So Philip proceeded to tell him the good news about Jesus, beginning from that Scripture.
