Meditation Psalm 33a

Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous;    it is fitting for the upright to praise him.Praise the Lord with the harp;    make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.Sing to him a new song;    play skilfully, and shout for joy. For the word of the Lord is right and true;    he is faithful in all he does.The Lord loves righteousness and justice;    the earth is full of […]

Meditation Psalm 32c

Of David. A maskil. Blessed is the one    whose transgressions are forgiven,    whose sins are covered.Blessed is the one    whose sin the Lord does not count against them    and in whose spirit is no deceit. When I kept silent,    my bones wasted away    through my groaning all day long.For day and night    your hand was heavy on me;my strength was sapped    as in the heat […]

Meditation Psalm 31c

How abundant are the good thingsthat you have stored up for those who fear you,that you bestow in the sight of all,on those who take refuge in you.In the shelter of your presence you hide themfrom all human intrigues;you keep them safe in your dwellingfrom accusing tongues. Praise be to the Lord,for he showed me […]

Meditation Psalm 31b

Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am in distress;    my eyes grow weak with sorrow,    my soul and body with grief.My life is consumed by anguish    and my years by groaning;my strength fails because of my affliction,    and my bones grow weak.Because of all my enemies,    I am the utter contempt of my neighboursand an object of dread to my […]

Meditation Psalm 31a

For the director of music. A psalm of David. In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;    let me never be put to shame;    deliver me in your righteousness.Turn your ear to me,    come quickly to my rescue;be my rock of refuge,    a strong fortress to save me.Since you are my rock and my fortress,    for the sake of your name lead […]

A psalm. A song. For the dedication of the temple. Of David. I will exalt you, Lord,    for you lifted me out of the depths    and did not let my enemies gloat over me.Lord my God, I called to you for help,    and you healed me.You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;    you spared me from going down […]

Meditation Psalm 29

A psalm of David. Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.Ascribe to the Lord the glory due to his name;    worship the Lord in the splendour of his holiness. The voice of the Lord is over the waters;    the God of glory thunders,    the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.The voice of the Lord is powerful;    the voice of the Lord is majestic.The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;    the Lord breaks in […]

Of David. To you, Lord, I call;    you are my Rock,    do not turn a deaf ear to me.For if you remain silent,    I shall be like those who go down to the pit.Hear my cry for mercy    as I call to you for help,as I lift up my hands    towards your Most Holy Place. Do not drag me away with […]
