Psalm 51

Psa 51:1 To the chief musician, A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your loving-kindness, according to the multitude of Your tender mercies; blot out my transgressions.
Psa 51:2 Wash me completely from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
Psa 51:3 For I know my transgressions; and my sin is ever before me.
Psa 51:4 Against You, You only, I have sinned, and done evil in Your eyes; that You might be justified in Your speaking and be clear when You judge.
Psa 51:5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.
Psa 51:6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts; and in the hidden parts You teach me wisdom.
Psa 51:7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Psa 51:8 Cause me to hear joy and gladness; the bones You have crushed will rejoice.
Psa 51:9 Hide Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
Psa 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Psa 51:11 Do not cast me out from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Psa 51:12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.
Psa 51:13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways; and sinners will turn back to You.
Psa 51:14 Deliver me from the guilt of shedding blood, O God, O God of my salvation; my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
Psa 51:15 O Lord, open my lips and my mouth shall declare Your praise.
Psa 51:16 For you do not desire sacrifice, or I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering.
Psa 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
Psa 51:18 Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion; build the walls of Jerusalem.
Psa 51:19 Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole offering; then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.

Psalm 50

Psa 50:1 A Psalm of Asaph God, Jehovah God, has spoken, and calls to the earth from the rising of the sun to its going in.
Psa 50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shone.
Psa 50:3 Our God comes, and He is not silent; a fire shall devour before Him; and it shall be very stormy around Him.
Psa 50:4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, to judge His people.
Psa 50:5 Gather My saints together to Me, those who cut My covenant by sacrifice.
Psa 50:6 And the heavens shall declare His righteousness, for God Himself is judge. Selah.
Psa 50:7 Hear, My people, and I will speak, O Israel, and I will testify against you; I am God, your God.
Psa 50:8 Not for your sacrifices do I reprove you; yea, your burnt offerings are continually before Me;
Psa 50:9 I will take no bull out of your house, nor he-goats out of your folds,
Psa 50:10 for every beast of the forest is Mine; the cattle on a thousand hills;
Psa 50:11 I know all the birds of the mountains; and all moving in My fields are Mine;
Psa 50:12 if I were hungry, I would not tell you, for the world is Mine, and the fullness of it.
Psa 50:13 Will I eat the flesh of mighty ones, and will I drink the blood of he-goats?
Psa 50:14 Offer thanksgiving to God, and pay your vows to the Most High.
Psa 50:15 And call on Me in the day of distress, and I will save you; and you shall glorify Me.
Psa 50:16 But to the wicked, God says, What is it to you to proclaim My statutes, and to take up My covenant on your mouth?
Psa 50:17 Yea, you hate instruction and toss My Words behind you.
Psa 50:18 When you saw a thief, you were pleased with him; and with adulterers is your portion.
Psa 50:19 You give your mouth to evil, and your tongue frames deceit.
Psa 50:20 You sit; you speak against your brother; you give fault to the son of your mother.
Psa 50:21 You have done these things, and I have kept silence; you thought that surely I would be like you; but I will rebuke you and set in order before your eyes.
Psa 50:22 Now think of this, you who forget God, lest I tear, and there not be any to deliver:
Psa 50:23 Whoever offers thanks glorifies Me; and he who prepares a way, I will show the salvation of God to him.

Psalm 49

Psa 49:1 To the chief musician, A Psalm for the Sons of Korah. Hear this, all peoples, give ear, all those living in the world,
Psa 49:2 both sons of mankind and sons of man together, rich and poor:
Psa 49:3 My mouth shall speak wisdom, and the thoughts of my heart shall be of understanding.
Psa 49:4 I will bow down my ear to a parable; I will open my dark saying on the harp.
Psa 49:5 Why should I fear in the days of evil, when the perversity of my ambushers will surround me?
Psa 49:6 Those who trust in their wealth and in their many riches boast themselves.
Psa 49:7 A man cannot at all redeem a brother, nor give to God a ransom for him,
Psa 49:8 for the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceases forever,
Psa 49:9 for he shall yet live forever; he shall never see corruption.
Psa 49:10 For he sees wise men die; together the fool and the animal-like ones perish and leave their riches to others.
Psa 49:11 Their inward thought is that their houses shall last forever, their dwelling-places to all generations; they call lands after their own names.
Psa 49:12 But man shall not remain high in honor; he is like the animals; they shall be cut off.
Psa 49:13 This way of theirs is folly to them, yet their followers shall be pleased by their mouth. Selah.
Psa 49:14 Like sheep, they are appointed to Sheol. Death shall reign for them. And upright ones shall rule over them in the morning; and their form is for rotting; Sheol is home for him.
Psa 49:15 But God will redeem my soul from the hand of Sheol, for He will take me. Selah.
Psa 49:16 Do not be afraid when one becomes rich, when the glory of his house increases;
Psa 49:17 for when he dies he shall take nothing; his glory shall not go down after him.
Psa 49:18 For in his life he blessed his soul; yea, men praise you when you do well for yourself.
Psa 49:19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall not see light forever.
Psa 49:20 Man, though high in honor, but understanding not, is like the animals; they shall be cut off.

Psa 48:3 God is known in her strongholds for a refuge.
Psa 48:4 For, lo, the kings met together; they passed by together;
Psa 48:5 they saw, so they marveled; they were troubled and fled away.
Psa 48:6 Trembling and pain seized them there, like a woman in labor.
Psa 48:7 You break the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
Psa 48:8 As we have heard, so we have seen in the city of Jehovah of Hosts, in the city of our God. God establishes it forever. Selah.

Psa 48:10 According to Your name, O God, so is Your praise to the ends of the earth; Your right hand is full of righteousness.
Psa 48:11 Mount Zion shall be glad; the daughters of Judah shall shout for joy because of Your judgments.
Psa 48:12 Walk around Zion; yea, go all around it; count its towers;
Psa 48:13 set your heart on its ramparts; pass between its strongholds; in order that you may report to the coming generation.
Psa 48:14 For this God is our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even unto death.

Psa 47:6 Sing praise; sing praise; sing praise to our King, sing praise!

Psa 46:6 The nations roared; kingdoms were shaken; He gave forth His voice and the earth melted.
Psa 46:7 Jehovah of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is a refuge for us. Selah.

Psa 46:11 Jehovah of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is a refuge for us. Selah.

Psa 45:7 You love righteousness and hate wickedness; on account of this God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your fellows.
Psa 45:8 All Your garments smell of myrrh and aloes and cassia out of ivory palaces; by strings of a harp they make You glad.
Psa 45:9 King’s daughters are among Your precious ones; the queen stands at Your right hand in gold of Ophir.

Psalm 44

Psa 44:1 To the chief musician. A Contemplation for the Sons of Korah. We have heard with our ears, O God; our fathers have told us the work You did in their days, in the days of old.
Psa 44:2 You drove out nations with Your hand and planted them. You brought evil on peoples and sent them out.
Psa 44:3 For they did not inherit the land with their own sword; yea, their own arm did not save them. But it was Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your face, because You favored them.
Psa 44:4 You are He, my King, O God; command deliverances for Jacob.

Psa 44:13 You made us a disgrace to our neighbors, a scorn and a mockery to those around us.
Psa 44:14 You make us a byword among the nations, a shaking of the head among the peoples.
Psa 44:15 My humiliation is before me all the day; yea, the shame of my face covers me,
Psa 44:16 because of the slanderer’s voice and the blasphemer, before the face of the enemy and avenger.
Psa 44:17 All this has come upon us, and we have not forgotten You nor dealt falsely with Your covenant.
Psa 44:18 Our heart has not turned back, and our steps have not swerved from Your way,
Psa 44:19 though You have crushed us in the place of jackals and covered us over with the death-shade.
Psa 44:20 If we have forgotten the name of our God, and have spread our hands to an alien god,
Psa 44:21 shall not God search this out? For He knows the secrets of the heart.
Psa 44:22 Yea, for Your sake we are slain all the day; we are counted as sheep of slaughter.
Psa 44:23 Be aroused! Why do You sleep, O God? Awake! Do not cast us off forever.
Psa 44:24 Why do You hide Your face and forget our affliction and distress?
Psa 44:25 For our soul bows down to the dust; our belly holds fast to the earth.
Psa 44:26 Arise for our help and redeem us for the sake of Your mercy.

Psa 42:3 My tears have been my food by day and by night, while they say to me all the day, Where is your God?
Psa 42:4 When I remember these things and I pour out my soul on me (for I passed over with the throng; I led them to the house of God with the voice of rejoicing and praise, a host keeping the feast).
Psa 42:5 O my soul, why are you cast down and moan within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet thank Him for the salvation of His presence.
Psa 42:6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me; on account of this I remember You from the land of Jordan, and from the Hermonites, from Mount Mizar.

Psa 42:8 Jehovah will command His loving-kindness by day, and His song shall be with me in the night, a prayer to the God of my life.
Psa 42:9 I will say to God my Rock, Why have You forgotten me? Why do I go mourning when the enemy oppresses me?
Psa 42:10 Ones vexing me reproach me with crushing in my bones, when they say to me every day, Where is your God?
Psa 42:11 O my soul, why are you cast down? And why do you moan within me? Hope in God, for I yet thank Him for the salvation of my face and my God.

Psa 41:3 Jehovah will uphold him on the couch of sickness; You change all his bed in his sickness.
Psa 41:4 I said, O Jehovah be gracious to me; heal my soul, for I have sinned against You.
Psa 41:5 My enemies speak evil of me, saying, When will he die and his name perish?
Psa 41:6 And when he comes to see me he speaks vanity; his heart gathers iniquity to itself; he goes outside and speaks.
Psa 41:7 All those hating me whisper together against me; they plot evil against me,
Psa 41:8 saying, A thing of ruin is poured out on him; and, He who lies down shall not rise again.
Psa 41:9 Even a man desiring my welfare, I trusted in him, eating of my bread; this one has lifted up his heel against me.
Psa 41:10 But You, O Jehovah, be gracious to me and raise me up, and I will repay them.
Psa 41:11 By this I know that You delight in me, because my enemy does not exult over me.
Psa 41:12 And I, in my integrity You uphold me, and You set Your face before me forever.
Psa 41:13 Blessed be Jehovah God of Israel, even from everlasting to everlasting! Amen and Amen!

Psalms 111:9

“He hath commanded his covenant for ever.”

— Psalms 111:9

The Lord’s people delight in the covenant itself. It is an unfailing source of consolation to them so often as the Holy Spirit leads them into its banqueting house and waves its banner of love. They delight to contemplate the antiquity of that covenant, remembering that before the day-star knew its place, or planets ran their round, the interests of the saints were made secure in Christ Jesus. It is peculiarly pleasing to them to remember the sureness of the covenant, while meditating upon “the sure mercies of David.” They delight to celebrate it as “signed, and sealed, and ratified, in all things ordered well.” It often makes their hearts dilate with joy to think of its immutability, as a covenant which neither time nor eternity, life nor death, shall ever be able to violate-a covenant as old as eternity and as everlasting as the Rock of ages. They rejoice also to feast upon the fulness of this covenant, for they see in it all things provided for them. God is their portion, Christ their companion, the Spirit their Comforter, earth their lodge, and heaven their home. They see in it an inheritance reserved and entailed to every soul possessing an interest in its ancient and eternal deed of gift. Their eyes sparkled when they saw it as a treasure-trove in the Bible; but oh! how their souls were gladdened when they saw in the last will and testament of their divine kinsman, that it was bequeathed to them! More especially it is the pleasure of God’s people to contemplate the graciousness of this covenant. They see that the law was made void because it was a covenant of works and depended upon merit, but this they perceive to be enduring because grace is the basis, grace the condition, grace the strain, grace the bulwark, grace the foundation, grace the topstone. The covenant is a treasury of wealth, a granary of food, a fountain of life, a store-house of salvation, a charter of peace, and a haven of joy.
