Psalm of the Day–Psalm 38

 

Psa 38:1

 

  A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

Psa 38:2

 

  For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.

Psa 38:3

 

  There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.

Psa 38:4

 

  For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.

Psa 38:5

 

  My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.

Psa 38:6

 

  I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.

Psa 38:7

 

  For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh.

Psa 38:8

 

  I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.

Psa 38:9

 

  Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.

Psa 38:10

 

  My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.

Psa 38:11

 

  My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.

Psa 38:12

 

  They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.

Psa 38:13

 

  But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.

Psa 38:14

 

  Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.

Psa 38:15

 

  For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.

Psa 38:16

 

  For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.

Psa 38:17

 

  For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.

Psa 38:18

 

  For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.

Psa 38:19

 

  But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

Psa 38:20

 

  They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.

Psa 38:21

 

  Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.

Psa 38:22

 

  Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.

But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

Psa 22:8

He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

Psa 22:9

But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts.

Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.

Psa 22:12

Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

Psa 22:13

They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.

Psa 22:14

I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

Psa 22:15

My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

Psa 22:16

For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.

Psa 19:3

 

There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

Psa 19:5

 

Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

Psalm of the Day–Psalm 18

 

 

 

 

 

Psa 18:1

 

 

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of the LORD, who spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said, I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

Psa 18:2

 

The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

 

Psa 18:3

 

I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

 

Psa 18:4

 

The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

 

Psa 18:5

 

The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

 

Psa 18:6

 

In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

 

Psa 18:7

 

Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.

 

Psa 18:8

 

There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

 

Psa 18:9

 

He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.

 

Psa 18:10

 

And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.

 

Psa 18:11

 

He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

 

Psa 18:12

 

At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

 

Psa 18:13

 

The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.

 

Psa 18:14

 

Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

 

Psa 18:15

 

Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

 

Psa 18:16

 

He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.

 

Psa 18:17

 

He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

 

Psa 18:18

 

They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.

 

Psa 18:19

 

He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

 

Psa 18:20

 

The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.

 

Psa 18:21

 

For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

 

Psa 18:22

 

For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.

 

Psa 18:23

 

I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.

 

Psa 18:24

 

Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.

 

Psa 18:25

 

With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;

 

Psa 18:26

 

With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.

 

Psa 18:27

 

For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.

 

Psa 18:28

 

For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.

 

Psa 18:29

 

For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

 

Psa 18:30

 

As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

 

Psa 18:31

 

For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?

 

Psa 18:32

 

It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

 

Psa 18:33

 

He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places.

 

Psa 18:34

 

He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

 

Psa 18:35

 

Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.

 

Psa 18:36

 

Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.

 

Psa 18:37

 

I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.

 

Psa 18:38

 

I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.

 

Psa 18:39

 

For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.

 

Psa 18:40

 

Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.

 

Psa 18:41

 

They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.

 

Psa 18:42

 

Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

 

Psa 18:43

 

Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.

 

Psa 18:44

 

As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.

 

Psa 18:45

 

The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.

 

Psa 18:46

 

The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

 

Psa 18:47

 

It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.

 

Psa 18:48

 

He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.

 

Psa 18:49

 

Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.

 

Psa 18:50

 

Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.
