Book of Psalms

part 3



1; A Psalm of David. Judge me, O YAHWEH, for I have walked in my integrity; I also have trusted in YAHWEH; I shall not slide.

2; Examine me, O YAHWEH, and prove me; purify my reins and my heart.

3; For Your mercy is before my eyes; and I have walked in Your truth.

4; I have not sat with lying men; and I will not go in with hypocrites;

5; I have hated the assembly of evildoers, and I will not sit with the wicked.

6; I will wash my hands in innocence; so I will go around Your altar, O YAHWEH,

7; to cause to hear with the voice of thanksgiving and recount all Your wonderful works.

8; O YAHWEH, I have loved the place of Your house, and the place where Your glory dwells.

9; Do not gather up my soul with sinners, nor my life with men of blood,

10; in whose hand is a plot, and their right hand is full of a bribe.

11; But I will walk in my integrity; redeem me and be gracious to me.

12; My foot stands in an even place; in the assemblies I will bless YAHWEH.



1; A Psalm of David. YAHWEH is my light and my YAHSHUA; whom shall I fear? YAHWEH is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

2; When the evildoers, my enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

3; If an army should camp against me, my heart shall not fear. Though war rises against me, in this I am trusting.

4; One thing I have asked from YAHWEH, it I will seek: my dwelling in the house of YAHWEH all the days of my life, to behold the delight of YAHWEH, and to inquire in His sanctuary.

5; For in the day of evil He shall hide me in His shelter; in the secrecy of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall lift me up on a rock.

6; And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies, my encirclers, and I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises to YAHWEH.

7; Hear, O YAHWEH, my voice when I call, and favor me, and answer me.

8; My heart said to You, Seek my face; Your face, O YAHWEH, I will seek.

9; Do not hide Your face from me; Do not turn away Your servant in anger; You have been my help, do not leave me nor forsake me, O Elohim of my Yâshua.

10; When my father and my mother forsake me then YAHWEH will gather me.

11; Teach me Your way, O YAHWEH, and lead me in a level path, because of those who watch me.

12; Do not give me into the soul of my foes; for false witnesses have risen up against me, and the ones breathing out violence.

13; I would have fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of YAHWEH in the land of the living.

14; Hope in YAHWEH; be strong and He will make strong your heart; yea, hope in YAHWEH!



1; A Psalm of David. I will call to You, O YAHWEH; my Rock, be not deaf to me, lest, if You be silent from me I may be compared with those going down into the Pit.

2; Hear the voice of my prayers in my crying to You, when I lift my hands toward Your set-a-part of Holies.

3; Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity; who speak peace with their neighbors, yet evil is in their hearts.

4; Give to them according to their deeds and according to the evil of their practices; as is the work of their hands, give to them, repay their deeds to them.

5; Because they pay no attention to the works of YAHWEH, and to the works of His hands, He will destroy them, and not build them up.

6; Blessed be YAHWEH, because He has heard the voice of my prayers.

7; YAHWEH is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; yea, my heart greatly rejoices; and I will thank Him with my song.

8; YAHWEH is their strength, and He is the fortress of Yâshua, He is His Messiah.

9; Save Your people and bless Your inheritance and feed them, and lift them up forever.



1; A Psalm of David. Give to YAHWEH, sons of mighty ones; give to YAHWEH glory and strength.

2; Give to YAHWEH the glory of His name; worship YAHWEH in the majesty of holiness.

3; The voice of YAHWEH is on the waters; the Elohim of glory thunders; YAHWEH is above the abundant water.

4; The voice of YAHWEH is in power; the voice of YAHWEH in majesty.

5; The voice of YAHWEH breaks the cedars; yea, YAHWEH breaks Lebanon's cedars.

6; He also makes them skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.

7; The voice of YAHWEH is cutting through the flame of fire.

8; The voice of YAHWEH shakes the wilderness; YAHWEH shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

9; The voice of YAHWEH causes the does to calve; and He uncovers the forests. And in His sanctuary it all is saying, Glory!

10; YAHWEH sits upon the flowing deluge; yea, YAHWEH sits as King forever.

11; YAHWEH will give strength to His people; YAHWEH will bless His people with peace.



1; A Psalm; a Song of Dedication of the House of David. I will exalt You, O YAHWEH; for You have lifted me up and have not allowed my foes to rejoice over me.

2; O YAHWEH my Elohim, I cried to You, and You have healed me.

3; O YAHWEH, You have brought up my soul from Sheol; You have kept me alive, from going down into the Pit.

4; Sing praises to YAHWEH, O saints of His; and give thanks to the memory of His holiness.

5; For His anger is only a moment; but in long life is His favor. Weeping may endure in the evening, but joy comes in the morning.

6; And in my prosperity, I said, I shall never be moved forever.

7; O YAHWEH, in Your favor You have made my strong mountain to stand; You hid Your face; I was troubled;

8; I called to You, O YAHWEH; and to my master I will pray.

9; What profit is in my blood, in going down to the Pit? Shall the dust praise You? Shall it tell of Your truth?

10; Hear, O YAHWEH, and favor me; O YAHWEH, be my helper.

11; You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have loosed my sackcloth and have clothed me with gladness.

12; So my glory shall praise You, and not be quiet; O YAHWEH, my Elohim, I will give thanks to You forever.



1; To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. In You, O YAHWEH, I sought refuge; let me never be ashamed; deliver me in Your righteousness.

2; Bow down Your ear to me; deliver me quickly, be a strong rock to me, for a house of fortresses to save me.

3; For You are my Rock and my Fortress; and for Your name's sake lead me and guide me.

4; Bring me out of the net that they hid for me, for You are my strength.

5; Into Your hand I commit My spirit; You have redeemed Me, O YAHWEH, El of truth.

6; I have hated those keeping worthless idols; but I trust in YAHWEH.

7; And I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy; for You have seen my affliction; You have known the affliction in my soul;

8; and have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; You have made my feet to stand in a broad place.

9; Give me your grace, O YAHWEH, for I am in trouble; my eye has wasted away with grief, my soul and my belly.

10; For my life is ending with grief, and my years with sighing; my strength fails because of my iniquity, and my bones have wasted away.

11; I was a reproach among all my foes, but exceedingly to my neighbors; and I was a dread to my friends; those seeing me fled outside from me.

12; I am forgotten like one dead from the heart; I am like a perishing vessel.

13; For I have heard the slander of many; fear is all around; because they are plotting together against me, they planned to take away my life.

14; But I trusted in You, O YAHWEH; I said, You are my Elohim.

15; My times are in Your hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies and from those who pursue me.

16; Make Your face shine on Your servant; save me in Your mercy.

17; Let me not be ashamed, O YAHWEH; for I have called upon You; let the wicked be ashamed; let them be silent in Sheol.

18; Let the lying lips be silenced which speak recklessly against the righteous with pride and scorn.

19; How great is Your goodness which You have laid up for those who reverence You; You have worked for those who trust in You before the sons of mankind.

20; In the secrecy of Your presence You shall hide them from man's plots; You shall cover them in a booth, from the strife of tongues.

21; Blessed be YAHWEH, for He has worked His mercy wondrously to me in a besieged city.

22; For I said in my haste, I am cut off from Your eyes; surely You heard the voice of my prayers when I cried to You.

23; O love YAHWEH, all you saints of His; YAHWEH preserves the faithful, and abundantly repays the proud doer.

24; Be strong, and He will make your heart stronger, all you who hope in YAHWEH.



1; Psalm of David. A Contemplation. Blessed is he whose transgression is lifted, whose sin is covered.

2; Blessed is the man to whom YAHWEH does not charge iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

3; When I kept silence, then my bones became old, through my howling all day.

4; For by day and by night Your hand was heavy on me; my sap was turned into the droughts of summer. Selah.

5; I confessed my sin to You, and I have not hidden my iniquity; I said, I will confess over my transgression to YAHWEH; and You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah.

6; On account of this let every righteous one pray to You, at a time of finding; surely, when great floods come they will not reach him.

7; You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.

8; I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you, My eye shall be on you.

9; Be not like the horse, like the mule, with no understanding; with bit and bridle his gear to be held in, that they do not come near you.

10; Many sorrows are to the wicked; but he who trusts in YAHWEH, mercy embraces him.

11; Be glad in YAHWEH and rejoice, you righteous ones; and all the upright in heart, shout for joy.



1; Rejoice in YAHWEH, O righteous ones; praise is becoming to the upright.

2; Give thanks to YAHWEH with the lyre; sing to Him with a harp of ten strings.

3; Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully, with shouts of joy.

4; For the Word of YAHWEH is right, and all His works are in truth.

5; He loves righteousness and judgment; the mercy of YAHWEH fills the earth.

6; Through the Word of YAHWEH the heavens were made; and all their host were made by the breath of His mouth.

7; The waters of the sea were gathered like a heap, setting the depths in storehouses.

8; Let all the earth reverence YAHWEH; let all those living in the world stand in awe of Him.

9; For He spoke, and it came into being; He commanded, and it stood fast.

10; YAHWEH voids the counsel of the nations, He frustrates the plans of the peoples.

11; The counsel of YAHWEH stands forever, the thoughts of His heart from generation to generation.

12; Blessed is the nation whose Elohim is YAHWEH, the people He has chosen for His inheritance.

13; YAHWEH looks down from Heaven; He sees all the sons of mankind.

14; From His dwelling place He looks on all the ones living in the earth.

15; He forms the heart; He understands all their works.

16; The king is not saved by great force; a mighty man is not saved by great strength.

17; A horse is a vain thing for safety; nor does he save by his great strength.

18; Behold the eye of YAHWEH is to those who reverence Him, on those who hope in His mercy;

19; to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

20; Our soul waits for YAHWEH; He is our help and shield.

21; For our heart rejoices in Him because we trust in His set-a-part name.

22; Let Your mercy be upon us, O YAHWEH, even as we wait for You.



1; A Psalm of David, when he changed his behavior before Abimelech; and he drove him away, and he went.

I will bless YAHWEH at all times; His praise shall always be in my mouth.

2; My soul shall make its boast in YAHWEH; the humble shall hear and be glad.

3; O magnify YAHWEH with me; and let us exalt His name together.

4; I sought YAHWEH, and He answered me, and delivered me out of all my fear.

5; They looked to Him and were filled with light; and their faces were not ashamed.

6; This poor man cried; and YAHWEH heard, and saved him out of all his distress.

7; The Messenger of YAHWEH camps around those who reverence Him, and He delivers them.

8; Taste and see that YAHWEH is good; blessed is the man seeking refuge in Him.

9; reverence YAHWEH, His set-a-part ones, for they who reverence Him lack nothing.

10; The young lions have lacked and been hungry; but they who seek YAHWEH shall not lack any good thing.

11; My sons, come, listen to Me; I will make known to you the reverence of YAHWEH.

12; Who is the man who desires life, who loves days in order to see good?

13; Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking guile;

14; Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

15; The eyes of YAHWEH are on the righteous; and His ears are open to their cry.

16; The face of YAHWEH is against those who do evil, to cut off their memory from the earth.

17; The righteous cry, and YAHWEH hears; and He saves them out of all their distresses.

18; YAHWEH is near to the broken of heart; and He saves the crushed of spirit.

19; Many are the evils of the righteous, but YAHWEH delivers him out of them all,

20; keeping all His bones; not one of them is broken.

21; Evil shall slay the wicked; yea, those who hate the righteous shall become guilty.

22; YAHWEH is redeeming the soul of His servants; and none of those who seek refuge in Him shall perish.



1; A Psalm of David. O YAHWEH, contend with those who strive against me; fight those who fight against me.

2; Take hold of a shield and buckler, and arise as my help.

3; Draw out the spear and close ranks to meet my pursuers; say to my soul, I am your Yâshua.

4; Let those who seek my soul be ashamed and disgraced; let them be turned back and brought to confusion, those who plot evil to me.

5; Let them be as chaff before the wind, and the Messenger of YAHWEH driving them away.

6; Let their way be dark and slippery, and the Messenger of YAHWEH their pursuer.

7; For they have hidden their pit-net for me without cause; without cause they have dug for my soul.

8; Let destruction come on him; he will not know; and let his net which he concealed catch him; let him fall in it, into destruction.

9; And my soul shall be joyful in YAHWEH; it will rejoice in His Yâshua.

10; All my bones shall say: O YAHWEH, who is like You, who delivers the poor from those stronger than he; yes, the poor and needy from his plunderer?

11; Witnesses of violence rise up; they asked me what I did not know;

12; they rewarded me evil for good, bereaving my soul.

13; But in their sickness, my clothing was sackcloth; I humbled my soul with fastings; and my prayer returned to my bosom.

14; I walked as a friend, as to my brother; as one who mourns a mother, I was bowed down mourning.

15; But they rejoiced in my limping; and assembling the defamers assembled themselves against me; and I did not know; they tore and were not silent;

16; with the wicked they were mockers for a cake, gnashing their teeth on me.

17; O YAHWEH, how long will You look on? Bring back my soul from their desolations, my only one from the lions.

18; I will thank You in the great assembly, and I will praise You among a mighty people.

19; Let not my lying enemies rejoice over me; do not let those who hate me without cause wink the eye.

20; For they do not speak peace; but they devise deceitful things against the quiet ones of the earth.

21; And they open their mouth wide against me; they say, Aha! Aha! Our eyes have seen.

22; You have seen, O YAHWEH; do not keep silence, O YAHWEH do not be far from me.

23; Stir Yourself and awaken to my judgment, to my cause, my Elohim and my Adonai.

24; Judge me, O YAHWEH my Elohim, according to Your righteousness; and do not let them rejoice over me.

25; Let them not say in their hearts, Aha! Our soul! Let them not say, We have swallowed him up.

26; Let them be ashamed and be confounded together, the ones who rejoice at my evil; let them be clothed with shame and dishonor, the ones who magnify themselves against me.

27; Let those who delight in my justification shout and rejoice; and they shall say continually, YAHWEH be magnified, delighting in the peace of His servant.

28; And my tongue will speak of Your righteousness and of Your praise all the day.
