Book of Psalms

part 6



1; To the chief musician. Concerning the Lilies. Of David. Save me, O Elohim, for the waters have come in to my soul.

2; I sink in deep mire, and there is no standing; I have come into deep waters where the floods overflow me.

3; I am weary from my crying, my throat is scorched; my eyes fail while I wait for my Elohim.

4; They who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head; they who would destroy me are mighty, my lying enemies; then I must restore what I did not rob.

5; O Elohim, You know my foolishness, and my guiltiness is not hidden from You.

6; O Adonai YAHWEH of Hosts, do not let those who wait on You be ashamed for my sake; let not the ones who seek You be ashamed for my sake, O Elohim of Israel.

7; Because I suffered reproach for Your sake, shame has covered My face.

8; I have become a stranger to My brothers and a foreigner to My mother's children.

9; For the zeal of Your house has consumed Me; and the reproaches of the ones who reproach You have fallen on Me.

10; And I wept with fasting, my soul it also was a reproach to me;

11; I also made sackcloth my clothing, and I became a mockery to them.

12; They who sit in the gate spoke of me; and I was the song of drunkards.

13; But as for me, my prayer is to You, O YAHWEH, at a time of favor, O Elohim! In the plentitude of Your mercy answer me, in the truth of Your YAHSHUA.

14; Deliver me out of the mire, that I may not sink; let me be delivered from those who hate me, and out of the deep waters.

15; Let not the flood waters overflow me, nor let the deep swallow me up; and let not the pit shut its mouth on me.

16; Hear me, O YAHWEH, for Your mercy is good; in the plentitude of Your tender mercies, turn toward me.

17; And do not hide Your face from Your servant; for it is distressing to Me; answer Me quickly;

18; draw near My soul; redeem it; ransom Me because of My enemies.

19; You have known My reproach, and My shame, and My dishonor; and you are before all my enemies.

20; Reproach has broken My heart, and I am full of heaviness; and I waited for one to show pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

21; They also gave Me gall in My food; and in My thirst they gave Me vinegar to drink.

22; Let their table be a trap before them, and to those at ease a snare.

23; Let their eyes be darkened from seeing, and cause their loins to quiver continually.

24; Pour out Your wrath on them; and let the glow of Your anger overtake them.

25; Let their home be made desolate; let no one dwell in their tents.

26; For whom You have given stripes, they have persecuted; and they gossip to the pain of those You pierced.

27; Put iniquity to their iniquity, and do not let them enter into Your righteousness.

28; Blot them out from the Book of Life; yea, let them not be written with the righteous.

29; But I am poor and in pain; O Elohim, Your salvation ( Yâshua) shall set me on high.

30; I will praise Elohim's name in a song; and I will magnify Him with thanks.

31; And it shall please YAHWEH more than an ox, horned or hoofed bull.

32; The humble have seen and are glad; you who seek Elohim, your heart shall live.

33; For YAHWEH hears the needy, and He does not despise His prisoners.

34; Let the heavens and the earth praise Him, the seas, and everything that moves in them.

35; For Elohim will save Zion; and He will build the cities of Judah, and they shall live there and possess it.

36; And His servants' seed shall inherit; and they who love His name shall live in it.



1; To the chief musician. A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O Elohim, deliver me! O YAHWEH, Hurry to help me!

2; Let those who seek after my soul be ashamed and turned pale; let them be turned backward and shamed, those who desire my evil.

3; Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame, those who say, Aha, aha!

4; Let all those who seek You rejoice, and be glad in You; and let them say continually, let be magnified, Elohim, lovers of Your Yâshua.

5; But I am poor and needy, come quickly to me, O Elohim; You are my help and my deliverer; O YAHWEH, do not wait any longer.



1; In you ,O YAHWEH, I seek refuge, O, let me not be put to shame forever.

2; In Your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; bow down Your ear to me and save me.

3; Be a rock of strength for me, to which I may always go; You have given a command to save me; for You are my rock and my fortress.

4; O my Elohim, deliver me out of the hand of the wicked, and out of the hand of the unjust and the ruthless.

5; For You are my hope, O Adonai YAHWEH, my trust from my youth.

6; I have rested on You from the belly; You are He who took me out of my mother's womb; my praise shall be always of You.

7; I am like a wonder to many, but You are my strong tower.

8; My mouth is filled with Your praise, with your glory all the day long.

9; Do not cast me off now at the time of my old age. Do not forsake me when my strength fails.

10; For my enemies speak against me; and those who lurk for my soul plot together.

11; And they say, Elohim has forsaken him; pursue him and take him, for there is no one to deliver.

12; O Elohim, do not be far from me; my Elohim come quickly to help me.

13; Let them be ashamed; let those who are enemies of my soul be consumed; let them be covered with reproach, and let those seeking evil for me be dishonored;

14; and I will hope without ceasing, and I will add more on all Your praise.

15; My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness and Your YAHSHUA all the day; for I do not know the numbers.

16; I will come in the strength of Adonai YAHWEH; I will remember Your righteousness, that belongs to you alone.

17; O Elohim, You have taught me from my youth; and until now I have declared Your wonders.

18; And even when I am old and gray headed, O Elohim, do not leave me until I declare Your arm to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come.

19; And, Your righteousness, O Elohim, is to the heights, You who have done great things. O Elohim, who is like You,

20; who has shown me great and evil distresses. You will turn me; You will make me live; and You will bring me up from the depths of the earth.

21; You will multiply my greatness and surround and comfort me.

22; I will also thank You with a harp, O my Elohim; I will sing Your truth; I will sing to You with the lyre, O set-a-part One of Israel.

23; My lips shall shout for joy, for I will sing praise to You; also my soul which you have redeemed.

24; And my tongue shall muse on Your righteousness all the day; because those seeking my evil are disgraced; they are put to shame.



1; A psalm of Solomon. Give the king Your judgments, O Elohim; and Your righteousness to the king's son.

2; Your people He shall judge in righteousness, and Your poor in justice.

3; The mountains will lift up peace to the people, and the little hills through righteousness.

4; He shall judge the poor of the people; and He shall save the sons of the needy; and He shall crush the oppressor.

5; They shall reverence You with the sun, and before the moon in all generations.

6; He shall descend like rain on the mown grass, like showers that water the earth.

7; In His days the righteous shall flourish, and plenty of peace, till the moon is not.

8; He shall also rule from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.

9; Those dwelling in the desert will bow before Him, and His enemies will lick the dust.

10; The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents; the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

11; Yea, all kings shall fall down before Him; all nations shall serve Him.

12; For He shall save the needy who cries, and the poor with no helper.

13; He shall have pity on the poor and needy; and the souls of the needy ones He saves.

14; He shall redeem their souls from oppression and violence; and their blood shall be precious in His eyes.

15; And He shall live, and the gold of Sheba shall be given to Him; and prayer shall be made for Him continually; He shall bless Him all the day.

16; A fullness of grain shall be in the earth on top of the mountains; its fruit shall shake like Lebanon; and they of the city shall flourish like the grass of the earth.

17; His name shall be forever; His name shall continue before the sun; and they shall bless themselves by Him; all nations shall call Him blessed.

18; Blessed is YAHWEH Elohim, the Elohim of Israel, who alone does wonderful things.

19; And blessed is His glorious name forever; and the whole earth is filled with His glory! Amen and amen!

20; The prayers of David the son of Jesse have ended.



1; A Psalm of Asaph. Truly Elohim is good to Israel, to those who are of a pure heart.

2; And as for me, my feet had almost stumbled, my steps nearly made to slip.

3; For I was jealous of the proud; I looked upon the peace of the wicked.

4; For there are no pangs to their death; but their body is fat.

5; They are not in the trouble of mortal man; and with men they are not touched.

6; So pride enchains them; violence covers them like a robe.

7; Their eyes go out with fatness; they have passed the imaginations of the heart.

8; They scoff and speak in evil; from on high they speak oppression.

9; They set their mouth in the heavens; and their tongues walk through the earth.

10; Because of this His people shall return here; and waters of a full cup is drained by them.

11; And they say, How does El know? And, Is there knowledge in the Most High?

12; Behold! These are the wicked who are always at ease; they increase their riches.

13; Surely I have purified my heart in vain; and I have washed my hands in innocence.

14; For all the day I was touched; and my chastening is at the mornings.

15; If I say, This is the way I will speak; behold, I would deceive a generation of Your sons.

16; And I thought to know this; it was painful in my eyes,

17; until I went into the sanctuary of El and I discerned their end.

18; Surely, You will set their feet in slippery places; You will make them fall into ruin.

19; How they are destroyed in a moment, swept away with terrors!

20; Like a dream when being aroused from dreaming, O YAHWEH in awaking You will despise their image.

21; For my heart was in a ferment, and I was pierced in my reins.

22; And I was brutish and did not know; I was like animals with You.

23; Yet I was continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand.

24; You shall guide me by Your counsel; and afterward You will take me to glory.

25; Whom is to me in Heaven? And I have no desire on earth besides You.

26; My flesh and my heart waste away; Elohim is the rock of my heart and my portion forever.

27; For, lo, those who are far from You shall be lost; You have cut off all who go whoring away from You.

28; As for me, it is good for me to draw near to Elohim; I have made my refuge in Adonai YAHWEH, to declare all Your works.



1; A Lesson, of Asaph. O Elohim, have You cast us off forever; will Your anger smoke against the sheep of Your pasture?

2; Remember Your congregation; You bought them in days before; You redeemed us as the rod of Your inheritance, this Mount Zion in which You have dwelt in.

3; Lift up Your steps to the perpetual desolations, the enemy who has done all evil in the sanctuary.

4; Those distressing You have roared in the middle of Your congregation; they set up their own signs for signs.

5; He is known as one bringing axes in on high, against the thick trees.

6; And now together they break down its carved work with the axe and hammers.

7; They have cast fire in Your sanctuary; they have polluted the place where Your name dwells on the earth.

8; They said in their hearts, Let us rage against them together; they have burned up all the meeting-places of El in the land.

9; We did not see our signs; there is no longer a prophet; nor any among us who knows until when.

10; O Elohim, until when shall the enemy speak evil of You? Shall the enemy scorn Your name forever?

11; Why do You withdraw Your hand, even Your right hand? From out of Your bosom, consume them.

12; For Elohim is my King of old, who works salvation in the midst of the land.

13; You broke the sea by Your strength; You burst the heads of sea- monsters in the waters.

14; You cracked open the heads of leviathan; You gave him to be food for the people of the wilderness.

15; You divided the fountain and the torrent; You dried up mighty rivers.

16; The day is Yours, the night is also Yours. You have established the light and the sun.

17; You have fixed the boundaries of the earth; You have formed the summer and winter.

18; Remember this: the enemy has blasphemed, O YAHWEH; and a foolish people have despised Your name.

19; Do not give the soul of Your turtledove to the wild beasts; You will not forever forget the life of Your afflicted ones.

20; Look to Your covenant; for the dark places of the earth are full, the abodes of violence.

21; O let not the ill-treated ones turn back ashamed; let the poor and needy praise Your name.

22; Arise, O Elohim, contend for Your cause; remember Your reproach from the fool all the day.

23; Do not forget the voice of your enemies, the noise of your foes is going up continually.



1; To the chief musician. Do not destroy. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song. We have given thanks to You, O Elohim; we have given thanks; for Your name is near; Your wonderful works have been told.

2; When I take the appointed time, I shall judge in uprightness.

3; The earth and all those living in it are melting away; I set firm its pillars. Selah.

4; I said to the boastful, Do not boast; and to the wicked, Do not lift up the horn.

5; Do not lift up your horn on high; do not speak with a stiff neck.

6; For exaltations are not from the east, nor from the west, nor from the desert;

7; but Elohim is the judge; He puts down this one and lifts up this other.

8; For a cup is in the hand of YAHWEH; and the wine foams; it is fully mixed, and He pours out from it; surely all the wicked of the earth must drain its dregs and drink.

9; But I will witness forever; I will sing praises to the Elohim of Jacob.

10; And I will cut off all the horns of the wicked; but the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.



1; To the chief musician. For stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song of Praise. Elohim is known in Judah; His name is great in Israel.

2; And His abode is in Salem; and His dwelling-place in Zion.

3; There He broke the fiery arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.

4; You are glorious, more excellent than the mountains of prey.

5; The stouthearted have been stripped; they slept their sleep; and none of the men of might have found their hands.

6; By Your rebuke, O Elohim of Jacob, both the horse and chariot have sunk into a sleep.

7; You, even You, are terrifying; and who can stand before You when You are angry?

8; You have caused judgment to be heard from Heaven; the earth feared and was stilled;

9; when Elohim arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.

10; For the wrath of man thank You; You encircle Yourself with the wrath left over.

11; Vow and pay to YAHWEH your Elohim; let all that are around Him bring presents to the Fearful One.

12; He shall cut off the spirit of princes; He is feared by the kings of the earth.



1; To the chief musician. On Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph. My voice is to Elohim, and I cry; my voice is to Elohim, and He gave ear to me.

2; In the day of my distress I sought YAHWEH; my hand was open in the night and did not grow numb; my soul refused to be comforted.

3; I remember Elohim and am troubled; I meditate and my spirit faints. Selah.

4; You seized the watches of my eyes; I am troubled and I cannot speak.

5; I thought upon the days of old, the years of bygone ages.

6; I will remember my song in the night; I will speak with my own heart, and my spirit carefully searches.

7; Will YAHWEH cast off forever; and will He not add, to be pleased any more?

8; Is His mercy gone forever? Has His Word failed for all generations?

9; Has El forgotten to be gracious; has He in anger shut up His tender mercies? Selah.

10; And I said, This is my sickness, the years of the right hand of the Most High;

11; I will remember the works of Yah; surely I will remember Your wonders of old.

12; I will also meditate on all Your works and muse of Your doings.

13; O Elohim, your way is in holiness; who is a El, great like Elohim?

14; You are the El who does wonders; You have revealed Your strength among the peoples.

15; You have redeemed Your people with Your arm, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.

16; The waters saw You, O Elohim, the waters saw You; they were afraid; yea, the deeps trembled.

17; The clouds poured out water; the skies uttered a voice; and Your arrows flew out.

18; The voice of Your thunder in the tempest; lightnings lit up the world; the earth trembled and quaked!

19; Your way is in the sea; and Your path is in the great waters; and Your footsteps are not known.

20; You led Your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
