part 2



1; A Secret Treasure of David. Watch over me, O El, for I take refuge in You.

2; You have said to YAHWEH, You are My goodness and nothing is apart from You.

3; As for the saints in the earth, they are the excellent ones; all my delight is in them.

4; Their sorrows shall multiply if they run after another Elohim. I will not pour out their drink offering of blood; and I will not take their names on my lips.

5; YAHWEH is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup; You shall surely uphold my lot.

6; The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; yea, I have a beautiful inheritance.

7; I will bless YAHWEH, who advised me. My mind also teach me in the nights.

8; I have set YAHWEH always before me; for He is at my right hand: I shall not be shaken.

9; So my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh shall also rest in hope.

10; For You will not leave My soul in Sheol; You will not give Your set-a-part One to see corruption.

11; You will make Me know the way of life. In Your presence is fullness of joys; at Your right hand are pleasures forever.



1; A Prayer of David. O YAHWEH, hear righteousness; listen to my cry; give ear to my prayer, for it is not in lips of deceit.

2; Let my judgment go out from Your face; Your eyes see uprightly.

3; You will test my heart; You will visit in the night; You will refine me; You will find nothing; my thoughts do not pass beyond my mouth.

4; As to the doings of men, by the Words of Your lips I keep from the paths of the violent.

5; My steps have kept in Your tracks so that my strides have not slipped.

6; I have called on You, for You will answer me, O El; bow down Your ear to me and hear my word.

7; Set out your wonderful loving- kindness by Your right hand, O Savior of those who trust in You, by your right hand from those who rise up against you.

8; Keep me as the pupil, the daughter of the eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings,

9; from the face of the wicked who stripped me; against my soul my foes encircle me.

10; They are enclosed in their own fat; their mouth speaks proudly;

11; now they have hemmed in our steps; they set their eyes to extending to the earth;

12; like a lion who longs to tear, and like a young lion sitting in hidden dens.

13; Arise, O YAHWEH, go before his face and bow him down! Deliver my soul from the wicked, by Your sword,

14; from men, by Your hand, O YAHWEH, from men of the world whose portion is in this life, and their belly You fill with Your treasure; they are satisfied with sons, and will leave their riches to their babes.

15; As for me, in righteousness I will look upon Your face; when I awaken, I shall be satisfied by Your image.



1; To the chief musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of YAHWEH, who spoke the words of this song to YAHWEH in the day that YAHWEH delivered him from the hand of all his foes, and from the hand of Saul. And he said: I love You, O YAHWEH, my strength.

2; YAHWEH is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; He is my El, my Rock; I seek refuge in Him; He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my high tower.

3; I will call on YAHWEH, who is to be praised; and I shall be saved from my enemies.

4; The cords of death hemmed me in; yea, the floods of wicked men overwhelmed me;

5; cords of Sheol surrounded me; the snares of death confronted me.

6; In my distress I called on YAHWEH and I cried to my Elohim; He heard my voice out of His sanctuary, and my cry went before Him, into His ears.

7; Then the earth shook and quaked; and the foundations of the mountains quaked and were shaken, because it angered Him.

8; A smoke went up out of His nostrils, and fire devoured out of His mouth; coals were kindled from it.

9; He bowed the heavens also and came down, and darkness was under His feet;

10; and He rode on a cherub, and He flew; yea He soared on the wings of the wind;

11; He made darkness His covering, His pavilion all around Him, darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies.

12; Out of the brightness before Him, His dark clouds passed through, hailstones and coals of fire.

13; YAHWEH also thundered in the heavens; and the Highest uttered His voice, hailstones and coals of fire.

14; Yea, He sent out His arrows and scattered them; and lightnings He shot out, and confounded them.

15; Then the stream beds of waters were seen, and the foundations of the earth were bared at Your rebuke, O YAHWEH, at the blast of the breath of Your nostrils.

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

17; He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from ones hating me; for they were stronger than I.

18; They prevented me in my day of calamity, but YAHWEH was my support.

19; And He brought me out into a broad place; He delivered me because He delighted in me;

20; YAHWEH rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands He has repaid me.

21; For I have kept the ways of YAHWEH, and have not evilly departed from my Elohim.

22; For all His judgments were before me, and I did not turn away His statutes from me.

23; For I was upright with Him and kept myself from my iniquity.

24; And YAHWEH has returned to me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands before His eyes.

25; With the merciful You reveal Yourself as merciful; with an upright man You reveal Yourself as upright;

26; with the pure You reveal Yourself as pure; and with the crooked,You appear perverse;

27; For You will save an afflicted people; but You will bring down haughty eyes.

28; For You will light my lamp; YAHWEH my Elohim will make my darkness light.

29; For through You I can rush through a troop; and through my Elohim I have leaped over a wall.

30; The El, is perfect in His way; the Word of YAHWEH is purified; He is a shield to all who seek refuge in Him.

31; For who is Eloah besides YAHWEH? Or who is a Rock except our Elohim?

32; It is El who girds me with strength and gives my way to be perfect;

33; setting my feet like the deer, and making me stand on my high places;

34; teaching my hands to war, so that a bow of bronze is bent by my arms.

35; You have also given me the shield of Your salvation YAHSHUA; and Your right hand holds me up; and Your condescension has made me great.

36; You have made a wide place under me for my steps, so that my ankles have not stumbled.

37; I have pursued my enemies and have overtaken them; nor did I turn back until they were consumed.

38; I have shattered them, and they cannot rise up; they fell under my feet.

39; And You have girded me with strength for the battle; You have bowed under me those rising against me.

40; And you have given me the neck of my enemies that I might cut off those hating me.

41; They cried, but no one is there to save; to YAHWEH, but He did not answer them.

42; And I crushed them like the dust before the wind; I emptied them out like the mire of the streets.

43; You have delivered me from the strivings of the people; You have made me head of the nations; a people I have not known shall serve me.

44; At the hearing of the ear they listen to me; the sons of foreigners shall bow down to me.

45; The sons of foreigners shall faint and come trembling out of their strongholds.

46; YAHWEH lives! And blessed be my Rock! And let the Elohim of YAHSHUA be exalted!

47; The El who avenges me, and orders people under me.

48; He delivers me from my enemies; yea, You lift me up from among those rising up against me. You have delivered me from the violent man.

49; On account of this I will extol You, O YAHWEH, among the nations, and I will sing praises to Your name,

50; magnifying YAHSHUA, His king, and working mercy to His Messiah; To David and to his Seed forever.



1; To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens are recording the glory of El, and the works of His hand the expanse is manifesting.

2; Day by day they pour forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.

3; There is no speech, nor are there words where their voice is not heard.

4; Their measuring line has gone out throughout all the earth, and their words to the end of the world; in them He has set up a tent for the sun.

5; And he comes forth like a bridegroom from his canopy. He rejoices like a hero to run a race;

6; His going forth from the end of the heavens, and his orbit to their ends; and nothing is hidden from his heat.

7; The Torah of YAHWEH is perfect, converting the soul. The Testimony of YAHWEH is sure, making the simple wise.

8; The precepts of YAHWEH are right, rejoicing the heart. The command-ments of YAHWEH are clear, giving light to the eyes.

9; The reverence of YAHWEH is clean, enduring forever. The judgments of YAHWEH are true, they are righteous altogether.

10; They are more precious than gold, even much fine gold, and sweeter than honey and drops from the honeycomb.

11; Also Your servant is warned by them; in keeping of them is great reward.

12; Who can discern errors? Acquit me from secret faults.

13; Also withhold Your servant from arrogant sins; do not let them rule over me; then I shall be complete, and I shall be innocent from great transgression.

14; Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing before You, O YAHWEH, my Rock and my Redeemer.



1; To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. May YAHWEH answer you in the day of distress; the name of the Elohim of Jacob set you on high.

2; He sends your help from the sanctuary, and upholds you out of Zion.

3; He will remember all your offerings and make fat your burnt sacrifices. Selah.

4; He will give you according to your heart and He will fulfill all your plans.

5; We will rejoice in your Yâshua, and in the name of our Elohim set up banners; may YAHWEH fulfill all your prayers.

6; Now I know that YAHWEH saves His Messiah, He answers him from His set-a-part Heaven with the mightiness of Yâshua, His right hand.

7; These trust in chariots, and these in horses, but we will make mention in the name of YAHWEH our Elohim.

8; They have bowed down and have fallen, but we have risen and stand upright.

9; O YAHWEH, Hoshua, The King, answer us in the day of our calling.



1; To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. O YAHWEH in Your strength rejoices the king; and in your Yâshua, how he greatly rejoices.

2; You have given him his heart's desire and have not withheld the prayer of his lips. Selah.

3; For You will precede him with the blessings of goodness; You set a crown of pure gold on his head.

4; He asked life from You: You gave to him length of days forever and ever.

5; His glory is great in Your salvation; You have laid honor and majesty on him.

6; For You have set blessings for him forever; You have made him rejoice in the joy of Your face.

7; For the king trusts in YAHWEH, and in the mercy of the Most High; he will not be shaken.

8; Your hand shall find out all Your enemies; Your right hand shall find out those who hate You.

9; You shall set them as a fiery furnace in the time of Your presence; YAHWEH will swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire will devour them.

10; You shall destroy their fruit from the earth, and their seed from the sons of men.

11; For they stretched forth evil against You; they imagined a plot; they cannot prevail,

12; for You shall make them turn the back; against their faces You shall make ready Your arrows on Your strings.

13; Be exalted, O YAHWEH, in Your strength; we will sing, and sing psalms of Your power.



1; To the Chief Musician, on the deer of the dawn. A Psalm of David. My El, My El, why have You forsaken Me, and are far from My deliverance, from the words of My groaning?

2; O my Elohim, I cry by day, but You do not answer; and in the night, and there is no silence to Me.

3; But You are set-a-part, sitting to judge the praises of Israel.

4; Our fathers trusted in You; they trusted, and You delivered them.

5; They cried to You, and were delivered; they trusted in You, and were not ashamed.

6; But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of mankind, and despised by the people.

7; All who see Me scornfully laugh at Me; they open the lip; they shake the head, saying,

8; He rolled on YAHWEH, let Him deliver Him; let Him rescue Him, since He delights in Him.

9; For You are He who took me out from the womb; causing Me to trust on My mother's breasts.

10; I was cast on You from the womb, from My mother's belly, You are My El.

11; Be not far from Me; for trouble is near; because no one is there to help.

12; Many bulls have circled around Me; strong bulls of Bashan have surrounded Me.

13; They opened their mouth on Me, like a lion ripping and roaring.

14; I am poured out like waters, and all My bones are spread apart; My heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of My bowels.

15; My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and My tongue clings to My jaws;

16; and You appoint Me to the dust of death; for dogs have encircled Me; a band of spoilers have hemmed Me in, piercing My hands and My feet.

17; I count all My bones; they look, they stare at Me.

18; They divide My garments among them, and they made fall a lot for My clothing.

19; But You, O YAHWEH, be not far off; O My Strength, hurry to help Me!

20; Deliver My soul from the sword, My only one from the paw of the dog.

21; Save Me from the lion's mouth; and from the horns of the wild oxen. You have answered Me.

22; I will declare Your name to My brothers; I will praise You in the midst of the assembly.

23; You who reverence YAHWEH, praise Him; all the seed of Jacob, glorify Him; and all the seed of Israel, reverence Him.

24; For He has not despised nor hated the affliction of the afflicted; and He has not hidden His face from Him, but when He cried to Him, He heard.

25; My praise shall be of You in the great assembly; I will pay My vows before those reverenceing Him.

26; The meek shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek YAHWEH shall praise Him; your heart shall live forever.

27; All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn back to YAHWEH; and all the families of the nations shall worship before You.

28; For the kingdom belongs to YAHWEH; and He is the ruler among the nations.

29; All the fat ones of the earth have eaten, and have worshiped; all those going down to the dust shall bow before Him; and He kept not His own soul alive.

30; A seed shall serve Him; it shall be spoken of YAHWEH to the coming generation;

31; they shall come and shall declare His righteousness to a people that shall yet be born; for He has done it.



1; A Psalm of David. YAHWEH is my shepherd; I shall not lack.

2; He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me to waters of rest;

3; He restores my soul; He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake.

4; Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

5; You prepare a table for me before ones vexing me; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.

6; Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of YAHWEH for days without end.



1; A Psalm of David. The earth belongs to YAHWEH, and the fullness of it; the world, and those who live in it.

2; For He has founded it on the seas and established it upon the rivers.

3; Who shall go up into the hill of YAHWEH? And who shall stand in His set-a-part place?

4; He who has clean hands and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood and has not sworn deceit.

5; He shall lift up the blessing from YAHWEH, and righteousness from the Elohim of Yâshua.

6; This is the generation of those seeking Him; they seek Your face, O Elohim of Jacob. Selah.

7; Lift up your heads, O gates; and be lifted up, O everlasting doors; and the King of Glory shall come in.

8; Who is this King of Glory? YAHWEH strong and mighty! YAHWEH mighty in battle!

9; Lift up your heads, O gates; even lift up, O everlasting doors; and the King of Glory shall come in.

10; Who is this King of Glory? YAHWEH of Hosts, He is the King of Glory. Selah.



1; A Psalm of David. To You, O YAHWEH, I lift up my soul.

2; O my Elohim, I trust in You; do not let me be ashamed; let not my enemies triumph over me.

3; Yea, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; let those be ashamed those deceiving without cause.

4; Make me know Your ways, O YAHWEH; teach me Your paths;

5; lead me in Your truth and teach me; for You are the Elohim of my Yâshua; on You I wait all the day long.

6; Remember, O YAHWEH, Your compassions and Your mercies; for they are from eternity.

7; Do not remember the sins of my youth, or my transgressions. According to Your mercy, remember me, for Your goodness' sake, O YAHWEH.

8; Good and upright is YAHWEH; therefore He will teach sinners in the way.

9; He will guide the meek in justice; and He will teach the meek His way.

10; All the paths of YAHWEH are mercy and truth to those keeping His covenant and His testimonies.

11; For Your name's sake, O YAHWEH, even pardon my iniquity for it is great.

12; What man is he who reverences YAHWEH? He teaches him the way he should choose.

13; His soul shall abide in good, and his seed shall inherit the earth.

14; The secret of YAHWEH is with those who reverence Him; and He will make them know His covenant.

15; My eyes are ever toward YAHWEH; for He shall bring my feet out of the net.

16; Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.

17; The straits of my heart are enlarged; O bring me out from my straits.

18; Look on my affliction and my pain, and lift up all my sins.

19; Look on my enemies, for they are many; they hate me with violent (Hamas) hating.

20; Keep my soul and deliver me; let me not be ashamed, for I have sought refuge in You.

21; Let purity and uprightness keep me, for I wait on You.

22; Redeem Israel, O Elohim, out of all his distresses.
