Psa. 24:1The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof,
the world and those who dwell therein,
Psa. 24:2for he has founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the rivers.
Psa. 24:3 ¶ Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?
And who shall stand in his holy place?
Psa. 24:4He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not lift up his soul to what is false
and does not swear deceitfully.
Psa. 24:5He will receive blessing from the Lord
and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
Psa. 24:6Such is the generation of those who seek him,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob. Selah
Psa. 24:7 ¶ Lift up your heads, O gates!
And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
Psa. 24:8Who is this King of glory?
The Lord, strong and mighty,
the Lord, mighty in battle!
Psa. 24:9Lift up your heads, O gates!
And lift them up, O ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
Psa. 24:10Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts,
he is the King of glory! Selah
Psa. 65:1 ¶ Praise is due to you, O God, in Zion,
and to you shall vows be performed.
Psa. 65:2O you who hear prayer,
to you shall all flesh come.
Psa. 65:3When iniquities prevail against me,
you atone for our transgressions.
Psa. 65:4Blessed is the one you choose and bring near,
to dwell in your courts!
We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house,
the holiness of your temple!
Psa. 65:5 ¶ By awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness,
O God of our salvation,
the hope of all the ends of the earth
and of the farthest seas;
Psa. 65:6the one who by his strength established the mountains,
being girded with might;
Psa. 65:7who stills the roaring of the seas,
the roaring of their waves,
the tumult of the peoples,
Psa. 65:8so that those who dwell at the ends of the earth are in awe at your signs.
You make the going out of the morning and the evening to shout for joy.
Psa. 65:9 ¶ You visit the earth and water it;
you greatly enrich it;
the river of God is full of water;
you provide their grain,
for so you have prepared it.
Psa. 65:10You water its furrows abundantly,
settling its ridges,
softening it with showers,
and blessing its growth.
Psa. 65:11You crown the year with your bounty;
your wagon tracks overflow with abundance.
Psa. 65:12The pastures of the wilderness overflow,
the hills gird themselves with joy,
Psa. 65:13the meadows clothe themselves with flocks,
the valleys deck themselves with grain,
they shout and sing together for joy.
Psa. 68:1 ¶ God shall arise, his enemies shall be scattered;
and those who hate him shall flee before him!
Psa. 68:2As smoke is driven away, so you shall drive them away;
as wax melts before fire,
so the wicked shall perish before God!
Psa. 68:3But the righteous shall be glad;
they shall exult before God;
they shall be jubilant with joy!
Psa. 68:4 ¶ Sing to God, sing praises to his name;
lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts;
his name is the Lord;
exult before him!
Psa. 68:5Father of the fatherless and protector of widows
is God in his holy habitation.
Psa. 68:6God settles the solitary in a home;
he leads out the prisoners to prosperity,
but the rebellious dwell in a parched land.
Psa. 68:7 ¶ O God, when you went out before your people,
when you marched through the wilderness, Selah
Psa. 68:8the earth quaked, the heavens poured down rain,
before God, the One of Sinai,
before God, the God of Israel.
Psa. 68:9Rain in abundance, O God, you shed abroad;
you restored your inheritance as it languished;
Psa. 68:10your flock found a dwelling in it;
in your goodness, O God, you provided for the needy.
Psa. 68:11 ¶ The Lord gives the word;
the women who announce the news are a great host:
Psa. 68:12“The kings of the armies—they flee, they flee!”
The women at home divide the spoil—
Psa. 68:13though you men lie among the sheepfolds—
the wings of a dove covered with silver,
its pinions with shimmering gold.
Psa. 68:14When the Almighty scatters kings there,
let snow fall on Zalmon.
Psa. 68:15 ¶ O mountain of God, mountain of Bashan;
O many-peaked mountain, mountain of Bashan!
Psa. 68:16Why do you look with hatred, O many-peaked mountain,
at the mount that God desired for his abode,
yes, where the Lord will dwell forever?
Psa. 68:17The chariots of God are twice ten thousand,
thousands upon thousands;
the Lord is among them; Sinai is now in the sanctuary.
Psa. 68:18You ascended on high,
leading a host of captives in your train
and receiving gifts among men,
even among the rebellious, that the Lord God may dwell there.
Psa. 68:19 ¶ Blessed be the Lord,
who daily bears us up;
God is our salvation. Selah
Psa. 68:20Our God is a God of salvation,
and to God, the Lord, belong deliverances from death.
Psa. 68:21But God will strike the heads of his enemies,
the hairy crown of him who walks in his guilty ways.
Psa. 68:22The Lord said,
“I will bring them back from Bashan,
I will bring them back from the depths of the sea,
Psa. 68:23that you may strike your feet in their blood,
that the tongues of your dogs may have their portion from the foe.”
Psa. 68:24 ¶ Your procession is seen, O God,
the procession of my God, my King, into the sanctuary—
Psa. 68:25the singers in front, the musicians last,
between them virgins playing tambourines:
Psa. 68:26“Bless God in the great congregation,
the Lord, O you who are of Israel’s fountain!”
Psa. 68:27There is Benjamin, the least of them, in the lead,
the princes of Judah in their throng,
the princes of Zebulun, the princes of Naphtali.
Psa. 68:28 ¶ Summon your power, O God,
the power, O God, by which you have worked for us.
Psa. 68:29Because of your temple at Jerusalem
kings shall bear gifts to you.
Psa. 68:30Rebuke the beasts that dwell among the reeds,
the herd of bulls with the calves of the peoples.
Trample underfoot those who lust after tribute;
scatter the peoples who delight in war.
Psa. 68:31Nobles shall come from Egypt;
Cush shall hasten to stretch out her hands to God.
Psa. 68:32 ¶ O kingdoms of the earth, sing to God;
sing praises to the Lord, Selah
Psa. 68:33to him who rides in the heavens, the ancient heavens;
behold, he sends out his voice, his mighty voice.
Psa. 68:34Ascribe power to God,
whose majesty is over Israel,
and whose power is in the skies.
Psa. 68:35Awesome is God from hissanctuary;
the God of Israel—he is the one who gives power and strength to his people.
Blessed be God!
Psa. 110:1 ¶ The Lord says to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand,
until I make your enemies your footstool.”
Psa. 110:2 ¶ The Lord sends forth from Zion
your mighty scepter.
Rule in the midst of your enemies!
Psa. 110:3Your people will offer themselves freely
on the day of your power,
in holy garments;
from the womb of the morning,
the dew of your youth will be yours.
Psa. 110:4The Lord has sworn
and will not change his mind,
“You are a priest forever
after the order of Melchizedek.”
Psa. 110:5 ¶ The Lord is at your right hand;
he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.
Psa. 110:6He will execute judgment among the nations,
filling them with corpses;
he will shatter chiefs
over the wide earth.
Psa. 110:7He will drink from the brook by the way;
therefore he will lift up his head.
Psa. 19:1 ¶ The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Psa. 19:2Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
Psa. 19:3There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
Psa. 19:4Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
Psa. 19:5which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
Psa. 19:6Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
Psa. 19:7 ¶ The law of the Lord is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure,
making wise the simple;
Psa. 19:8the precepts of the Lord are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is pure,
enlightening the eyes;
Psa. 19:9the fear of the Lord is clean,
the rules of the Lord are true,
and righteous altogether.
Psa. 19:10More to be desired are they than gold,
even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey
and drippings of the honeycomb.
Psa. 19:11Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
Psa. 19:12 ¶ Who can discern his errors?
Declare me innocent from hidden faults.
Psa. 19:13Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins;
let them not have dominion over me!
Then I shall be blameless,
and innocent of great transgression.
Psa. 19:14 ¶ Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in your sight,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
