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.

He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.

Psa 21:5

His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.

Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.

Psa 21:10

Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.

Psa 21:11

For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.

Psa 21:12

Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.

Psa 21:13

Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.

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.

Psalm of the Day–Psalm 14

 

 

Psa 14:1

  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Psa 14:2

 

  The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

Psa 14:3

 

  They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Psa 14:4

 

  Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.

Psa 14:5

 

  There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.

Psa 14:6

 

  Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.


Psa 14:7

 

  Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

Psalm of the Day–Psalm 13

Psa 13:1

  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?

Psa 13:2

  How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

Psa 13:3

  Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

Psa 13:4

  Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

Psa 13:5

  But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

Psa 13:6

  I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
