For the Leader, a Psalm of David. (2) May Ad-nai answer you in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob set you up on high; (3) Send forth help for you from the sanctuary, and support you out of Zion; (4) Remember all your meal-offerings, and accept the fat of your burnt-sacrifice; Selah (5) Grant you according to your own heart, and fulfill all your counsel. (6) We will shout for joy in your victory, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners; Ad-nai will fulfill all your petitions. (7) Now know I that Ad-nai saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the mighty acts of His saving right hand. (8) Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of Ad-nai our God. (9) They are bowed down and fallen; but we are lifted and stand upright. (10) Save, Ad-nai; let the King answer us in the day that we call.

For the Leader; upon the first hours of the morning, a Psalm of David. (2) My God, my God, why have You forsaken me, and are far from my help at the words of my cry? (3) O my God, I call by day, but You don’t answer; and at night, and there is no cease for me. (4) Yet You are holy, O You that are enthroned upon the praises of Israel. (5) In You did our fathers trust; they trusted, and You did deliver them. (6) To You they cried, and escaped; in You did they trust, and were not ashamed. (7) But I am a worm, and not a person; a reproach of being, and despised by people. (8) All those who see me laugh and tease; they show their tongues and shake their heads: (9) 'Let him commit himself to Ad-nai! Let Him rescue him; let Him deliver him, seeing He delights in him.' (10) For You are The One that took me out of the womb; You made me trust when I was upon my mother's breasts. (11) Upon You I have been cast from my birth; You are my God from my mother's womb. (12) Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help. (13) Many bulls are around me me; strong bulls of Bashan have beset me. (14) They open wide their mouth against me, as a ravening and roaring lion. (15) I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is become like wax; it is melted in my innermost parts. (16) My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaves to my throat; and You lay me in the dust of death. (17) For dogs have encompassed me; a company of evil-doers have enclosed me; like a lion, they are at my hands and my feet. (18) I may count all my bones; they look and gloat over me. (19) They part my garments among them, and for my vesture do they cast lots. (20) But You, O Ad-nai, don’t be far off; O You my strength, hasten to help me. (21) Deliver my soul from the sword; mine only one, from the power of a dog. (22) Save me from the lion's mouth; yea, from the horns of the wild-oxen do You answer me. (23) I will declare Your name to my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise You. (24) 'You that fear Ad-nai, praise Him; all you the seed of Jacob, glorify Him; and stand in awe of Him, all you the seed of Israel. (25) For He has not despised nor abhorred the lowliness of the poor; neither has He hid His face from him; but when he cried to Him, He heard.' (26) From You comes my praise in the great congregation; I will pay my vows before them that fear Him. (27) Let the humble eat and be satisfied; let them praise Ad-nai that seek after Him; may your heart be quickened for ever! (28) All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to Ad-nai; and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before You. (29) For the kingdom is Ad-nai’s; and He is the ruler over the nations. (30) All the fat ones of the earth shall eat and worship; all they that go down to the dust shall kneel before Him, even he that cannot keep his soul alive. (31) A seed shall serve him; it shall be told of Ad-nai to the next generation. (32) They shall come and shall declare His righteousness to a people that shall be born, that He has done it
For the Leader; [a Psalm] of the sons of Korah; upon Alamoth, a Song. (2) God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (3) Therefore will we not fear, though the earth changes, and though the mountains be moved into the heart of the seas; (4) Though the waters roar and foam, though the mountains shake at the swelling of the sea. Selah (5) There is a river, the streams of it make the city of God glad, the holiest dwelling-place of the Most High. (6) God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, at the approach of morning. (7) Nations were in tumult, kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. (8) Ad-nai of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our high tower. Selah (9) Come, behold the works of Ad-nai, who has made desolations in the earth. (10) He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow, and cuts the spear in sunder; He burns the chariots in the fire. (11) 'Let be, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.' (12) Ad-nai of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our high tower. Selah
For the Leader; upon Shoshanim. [A Psalm] of David. (2) Save me, O God; for the waters are come in even to the soul. (3) I am sunk in deep mire, where there is no standing; I am come into deep waters, and the flood overwhelms me. (4) I am weary of my crying; my throat is dried; my eyes fail while I wait for my God. (5) Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head; those who would cut me off, being my enemies wrongfully, are many; should I restore that which I did not steal? (6) O God, You know my folly; and my trespasses are not hidden from You. (7) Let not those who wait for You be ashamed through me, O Lord Ad-nai of hosts; Let not those that seek You be brought to confusion through me, O God of Israel. (8) Because for Your sake I have borne reproach, confusion has covered my face. (9) I became a stranger to my brethren, and an alien to my mother's children. (10) Because zeal for Your house has eaten me up, and the reproaches of those who reproach You are fallen upon me. (11) And I wept with my soul with fasting, and that became to me a reproach. (12) I made sackcloth also my garment, and I became a byword to them. (13) Those who sit in the gate talk of me; and I am the song of the drunkards. (14) But as for me, let my prayer be to You, O Ad-nai, in an acceptable time; O God, in the abundance of Your mercy, answer me with the truth of Your salvation. (15) Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink; Let me be delivered from those who hate me, and out of the deep waters. (16) Let not the flood overwhelm me, neither let the deep swallow me up; and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me. (17) Answer me, O Ad-nai, for Your mercy is good; according to the multitude of Your compassions turn You to me. (18) And hide not Your face from Your servant; For I am in distress; answer me speedily. (19) Draw a little to my soul, and redeem it; ransom me because of my enemies. (20) You know my reproach, and my shame, and my confusion; My adversaries are all before You. (21) Reproach has broken my heart; and I am sore sick; and I looked for some to show compassion, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none. (22) Yea, they put poison into my food; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink. (23) Let their table before them become a snare; and when they are in peace, let it become a trap. (24) Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to totter. (25) Pour out Your indignation upon them, and let the fierceness of Your anger overtake them. (26) Let their encampment be desolate; let none dwell in their tents. (27) For they persecute him whom You have smitten; and they tell of the pain of those whom You have wounded. (28) Add iniquity to their iniquity; and let them not come into Your righteousness. (29) Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous. (30) But I am afflicted and in pain; let Your salvation, O God, set me up on high. (31) I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving. (32) And that shall please Ad-nai better than a bullock that has horns and hoofs. (33) The humble shall see it, and be glad; you who seek after God, let your heart revive. (34) For Ad-nai pays attention to the needy, and does not despise His prisoners. (35) Let heaven and earth praise Him, the seas, and every thing that moves in them. (36) For God will save Zion, and build the cities of Judah; and they shall abide there, and have it in possession. (37) The seed of His servants shall inherit it; and those who love His name shall dwell there.
A Song, a Psalm of Asaph. (2) O God, don’t keep silent; don’t hold Your peace, and do not be still, O God. (3) For, lo, Your enemies are in an uproar; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. (4) They hold crafty talks against Your people, And take counsel against Your treasured ones. (5) They have said: 'Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may not be remembered anymore.' (6) For they have consulted together with one consent; against You they do make a covenant; (7) The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites; (8) Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; (9) Assyria also is joined with them; they have been an arm to the children of Lot. Selah (10) Do to them as You did to Midian; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook Kishon; (11) Who were destroyed at Endor; they became dung for the earth. (12) Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, and like Zebah and Zalmunna all their princes; (13) Who said: 'Let us take to ourselves in possession the habitations of God.' (14) O my God, make them like the whirling dust; as stubble before the wind. (15) As the fire that burns the forest, and as the flame that sets the mountains ablaze; (16) So pursue them with Your tempest, and fright them with Your storm. (17) Fill their faces with shame so they may seek Your name, O Ad-nai. (18) Let them be ashamed and frightened forever; yea, let them be abashed and perish; (19) That they may know that it is You alone whose name is Ad-nai, The Most High over all the earth.
