For the director of music. A psalm of David.

Meditation Psalm 18b

The earth trembled and quaked,    and the foundations of the mountains shook;    they trembled because he was angry.Smoke rose from his nostrils;    consuming fire came from his mouth,    burning coals blazed out of it.He parted the heavens and came down;    dark clouds were under his feet.He mounted the cherubim and flew;    he soared on the wings of the wind.He made darkness […]

A prayer of David.Hear me, Lord, my plea is just;listen to my cry.Hear my prayer –it does not rise from deceitful lips.Let my vindication come from you;may your eyes see what is right. Though you probe my heart,though you examine me at night and test me,you will find that I have planned no evil;my mouth […]
